Terror on Tilton Avenue

Prior to that night in 1974 when my Father led us all to the back deck, I’d never seen a U.F.O. or gave little thought to “visitors” from above… I was 14 years old and we had recently moved (again), to Kittery, Maine. Our little house on Tilton avenue was a dead-end street with an…

Find your game before you lose your mind…

I actually discovered the great game of golf after years of dribbling away my free time playing basketball. As a kid born in Upstate NY I loved the Knicks and later the Celtics led by the legendary Larry Bird.  There was nothing like the wars on the hardwood waged between the Lakers, the Bulls or…

Free…or not to be

I’ve been warned by many a mentor, business partner, and friend to refrain from opining politics in public. Particularly on a social media forum if the site is not specific as to its content.  As contemptuous as the conversations tend to be when contemplating all things political, “The time is near“… So please excuse this…

Scars into Stars…

From Mom to marketing mentors, coaches and colleagues, they all say it’s OK to fail.  Just keep trying and do your best, “nothing ventured nothing gained, right?  Along the way you will certainly pay, in either price or pain, but there is always something to gain… As many of you may also say, I have…

At the end of the day, you just gotta get paid!

Good business ideas are a dime a dozen, and boy do I have a lot of loose change lying around. From blogs to books to miracle creams, this one will certainly allow me to achieve my dreams, I think… During my morning walk, I usually “discover” some new twist that will propel my business to the next…

Passion for Preparation

My brother often comments with a certain sarcasm as to how long it takes me to prepare for a round of golf.  Heck, sometimes I even begin planning the night before.  Cleaning my clubs, stocking the bag, and shining my shoes of course. In fact, most of the time I enjoyed the pre-golf more than…

Children of the corn

If you’re even moderately interested in your health, and believe that “you are what you eat”, you might want to watch out for the “Children of the Corn”… A seemingly harmless “ingredient”, corn is now in almost everything.  I became a “label reader” years ago, after “discovering” that most processed foods contain more substances than…

A Declaration of our Dependence

I’ve never been a big fan of birthdays, even if it’s celebrating the day our country was “born”. National holidays are great times to reconnect with friends and family, relax and restore some perspective. But to blindly cheer on a country in complete collapse, ignoring the the signs of decay is nothing more than denial. Now…
