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!

Ha. Learning how to suffer is something I have been working on for a long time.  Runnin... Read More
  • I'm not sure I will change any lives today but in my quest to cover every topic, how about we discuss a clean house?  Remember:  A clean house is a clean mind. Here are the top five habits I took away from the article below: Take your shoes off. This easy habit reduces not only the amount of stuff you track through your home but also how often you have to clean the floors.  We rece... Read More
  • We all love a great story.  Humans are actually wired for stories because that's how information has been passed down from generation to generation.  We know this, yet we try to communicate on facts, features and benefits.  This is fine IF we put stories behind everything. Storytelling taps into a primal relationship with the brain, making way for emotion to influence the brain's next decisi... Read More
  • Mistakes happen to the best of us, and believe me, I have had to apologize more than anyone I know.  I have learned (the hard way) how to make a sincere apology.  The way we apologize or respond to mistakes displays personal character and can be used to leverage growth, trust, and credibility within relationships. The first step is owning up to the mistake.  That in and of itself took years ... Read More
  • Already this year, in the new year, I have a very full schedule that I am excited to live. However, life gets crazy. We all feel like we are spinning out of control sometimes.  Some of us more than others. Last spring I spent 12 weeks traveling all over the country to watch my daughter play Beach Volleyball for LSU (and I'm planning on doing it again this spring).  I would not change it for ...
