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!


  • I get asked quite a bit if I have any mentors.  I do — lots of them. My first and most important mentor was my dad (read my LIFEies on my dad here),  but I also found mentors in our Founder, Bill Lee (read my LIFEies on Bill Lee here), my coach of 27 years, Dan Sullivan, and many others.  Today, I want to share another mentor I have had now for over three decades. In 1984, I completed my fi... Read More
  • When I worked at Grubb and Ellis in the 80s we had a broker who was a nuclear scientist, John Irvine.  I'm not sure why he became a broker but that is a different story.  John would walk every day for exercise and guess what, he would read a book while he walked.  Talk about multi-tasking. I tell that story because we all have to give sh*t up to get what we want.  I say it all the time, “Yo... Read More
  • I am going  all the way back to 2014 today.  The below article is from August, 2014.  Why am I sending today?  Because the value in the content is GREAT.  I am not typically a lazy person but I do have my moments.   Below is a great article about how to get yourself going and create movement in your life.  Read my comments, but this week, I would really like you to read the article too.  ...

  • I have said it before and here it is again:  I will continue cleaning up my habits every day until they are all great.  I am still working on eating.  While working on this topic, I found an infographic about how mindfulness helps break the chain of bad habits. It's really cool but too long to put into this LIFEies.  Go here to read it all — it's worth your time. My focus today is where ha... Read More
  • For 25 years we have been hiring interns.  Some have been good, some bad, a few GREAT.  I've learned a lot about internships from both sides — I've hired interns and all my children have interned during their summer breaks. My youngest daughter, Claire, thought she wanted to be a nurse when she was in high school. I set her up to follow a nurse for a week.  At the end of the week, she no long... Read More
