Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is


first time homeowners
Context for the location of our first home in 1985. The dark grey area is the Reedy Creek swamp. Our lot was about 100 feet away.


first time homeowners
A small lot compared to our current two-acres, yet compared to the typical lot, we felt like we had acreage with our pie-shaped lot.

The tip of the paper-elimination iceberg.


Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is.

Motivation is like a fire, you must continue adding fuel or it will extinguish.

So motivated to eliminate clutter, stuff, and unnecessary “baggage”.

Seriously, oh what a relief this has been.

After 8:45am Mass this morning, i’ll spend the rest of this Sunday trying to finish.

Reedy Creek fire department
Stopped by to write a little on my way home yesterday.


Not joking when i say Walt Disney World is our hometown. Driving home from Orlando airport yesterday afternoon, i stopped at one of our hometown fire stations (there are four) to continue writing the first Disney business book.

What’s our obligation?

Food For Families Thanksgiving Day deliveries


(photo: A meaningless picture to someone not emotionally attached to this annual tradition… a photo we dismiss immediately.)

Emotional attachment is the key to loyalty. In business and in personal life.

We rarely make the connection between business and personal life.

Yet they are exactly the same.

Staying motivated to do our best when we are there – at work.

What about doing our very best when we are not at work – say health and wellness?
