July 19, 2012

I met a great writer recently who just put up a post on his blog potentially “putting it to bed.” He had been at it for over five years and had started feeling drained. I don’t think he’s officially shutting down the site, but he’s stepping back to see how (and if) he can get back […]

What If You Had a Year to Face Your Fears?

July 21, 2011

What if you had a year? What if you had no outside distractions and could focus on just one thing? Perhaps it’s a passion or some kind of personal development. What if it were a fear? A few weeks ago, I saw ex-celebrity blogger Noelle Hancock on “Today.” She had written a book that peaked my […]

Make the Airport Work for You

March 25, 2010

I’ve been delayed in the airport quite a bit. Especially coming back and forth from Minnesota, you stare and […]
