All my life I have tried to make sure I was heading in the right direction. From a young age I knew where I wanted to go and worked hard to achieve my goals. Now, I’ve raised four kids, competed in a ton of athletic competitions, and run a number of businesses. I also know that the world is filled with things that I can do or learn to make my life better.

Have you ever wished you had more time to read and uncover information that matters? Have you ever wanted to know more about a topic that could be helpful to you, your coworkers, kids, and friends?

My solution to this problem was to read and share. I have always been an obsessive reader of just about everything. Whenever I uncover interesting articles I share them with friends and family, always adding my own comments to make them personal. Most of these topics focus on how to live a better life – with my family, coworkers, and friends.

I have decided to share them with you. I call them LIFEies; weekly emails full of motivation, lessons, and simple facts of life. A LIFEies could contain a thought, an idea, a lesson, action item, or simply an interesting topic that any of us could benefit from learning about.

If you would like to be a part of the LIFEies weekly email, please sign up on the right. If you know someone who might enjoy this kind of reading, please share.

Hope you enjoy!

  • We all know that time is our most precious resource: It’s the one thing money cannot buy. And with smartphones in every pocket these days, we’ve never been better able to track how we use every minute of our time. However, we don't always want information about the way we spend our time, and when we get it, we aren't always inspired to make changes. What is the best hack to use time... Read More
