Manageable Email Volume w/ Unroll.me

There's an old saying that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, well that's probably true in some regards --but I haven't quite hit that point in my life yet where I can't still improve upon or become more efficient in things that I do daily. Well, chalk this up to being more efficient. I've had friends tell me about unroll.me over the years but … [Read more...]

Video: The Strangest Secret – Earl Nightingale

I wouldn't say that I've learned anything that I haven't heard before, but I think I'm able to absorb a lot of the information better now for some reason.

Excited About Tandem Diabetes! #shareholder

I invested in Tandem Diabetes a while back, they had just caught my attention (type 2 diabetic at age 40 that will likely be type 1 in the next few years) because they had this really sleek touchscreen interface that just seemed to fit right alongside all of the other sparkly gadgets (iPhones, iPads, Kindle, etc.) that are such a huge part of our … [Read more...]

Successful -vs- Unsuccessful People

I recently ran across this graphic and thought it presented some valid points, some of you may have already seen it since I shared it on my Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts.
