Having a Windshield Perspective

Think back to when you started to learn how to drive. Your parents or grandparents probably took you somewhere that was large and empty so you could focus on driving without many distractions. For me it was my Mom and the St. Raphael’s Church parking lot. I would slowly wind […]

Full Time Benefits

Growing up I had a lot of different jobs. I worked in offices, restaurants, gyms, factories and for a while I even sold coupon books door to door. Most of them were part time gigs that did not include benefits. No paid vacation, sick days, 401k or retirement plans. I […]

Every January for the past six years I have attended a weekend men’s retreat put on by Unlimited Potential, Inc. This year it was held in Cave Creek, AZ, but in the past we always met up in Prescott, AZ at a campground. The unique thing about the campground is […]

A Belt Without Notches

Over the past 25 years a lot of things have happened in my life. Some great (becoming a husband and father) and some not so great (attending the funerals of my dad and two brothers). I have owned a business, dabbled in real estate, been worth millions (on paper) and […]

Leaving Your Mark

Last summer I went through a very difficult time physically. I was diagnosed with pneumonia in mid-May, but after 2 weeks I found out it was Valley Fever. For the next 8 weeks I struggled with fluid in my lungs and swelling in my joints. It was one of the […]
