I do my best to look at the day the way our children look at the rainbow, with awe and wonder.
It doesn’t happen all the time, but I stopped worrying about doing things perfectly when I discovered that the process of doing is far more satisfying than doing the process perfectly.
I live an eclectic entrepreneur’s life. I do a bit of everything. I’m a writer, a blogger, a Realtor. I am a father, a family man, a home body. I am an athlete, a motivator, a cycling instructor. I love reading good books. I’ll take the book over the movie every time.
I was born in Berkeley, CA, grew up in Lancaster, PA. I discovered the weight room when I was nineteen. I graduated from Franklin & Marshall College when I was twenty-three. I moved to Los Angeles later that year.
I climbed on the cycling podium when I was thirty-one. I married my amazingly brilliant (and patient) wife at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. I became a father for the first time exactly a year later. We opened our first indoor cycling studio just shy of my 40th birthday.
My first novel showed up when I was 43-it took only twelve years to write. Our precociously beautiful daughter was born a few months later. At the ripe older age of forty-five, boy number two surprised us with his arrival. Milestones in my life.
For me, a life filled with reading, training, and family time is a full life.
I spent the first half of my life boxed inside a black or white paradigm, a Yes or No way of thinking. Learning was done in Academia. Living wasn’t something I considered much.
The life markers above have taught me that life is full of color, shade, light and dark, that learning happens when we live, that an open heart and open mind can be as powerful as the sun.
I do my best to look at the day the way our children look at the rainbow, with awe and wonder. It doesn’t happen all the time, but I stopped worrying about doing things perfectly when I discovered that the process of doing is far more satisfying than doing the process perfectly.
I consider each day an opportunity to improve and I want to share that with you. Stay with me on this journey and I hope to provide you with tips and tools that will help you do the same. Keep reading. Join the conversation.
Let’s get better together.
