Everything Old is New Again

So I finally got back on Facebook for the first time in a few weeks and I saw this video on several profiles. It seem to be making its way around the internet. Usually I avoid YouTube comments because they tend to be a haven for haters, but this one was slightly different (don’t get […]

Releasing the Pressure

Usually I’m not a big fan of meta products/writing (writing books about writing books), but I couldn’t help myself for this post that is basically writing about writing.

A Life Not Scalable

That’s what I wanted… and I had just said it out loud. Where did that come from? I was sitting across a small table from my friend Barrett who also happened to be my business partner at the time. One day earlier we had agreed to shutdown Living for Monday, an online education company for […]
