Because Nobody Says “Follow Your Brain”

It’s not every day that you start a new career- especially not after finding yourself in a consulting role for the largest software company in the world.  Now, I won’t say that I’m hanging up my marketing/consulting hat by any means, but I am certainly exploring a world I always wanted to pursue but didn’tContinue reading “Because Nobody Says “Follow Your Brain””

The Honest Answer

Tonight when I went through the check-out line at the grocery store, the clerk asked me something that I normally wouldn’t give a second thought to.

Excuse my french, but holy shit. Where the hell did the time go? I feel like itContinue reading “Lessons From New York City”

Note to self: never trust iphone driving directions.

First of all, If you have ever wondered whether or not anyone would be crazy enough to live 10 miles off the main road in a town with a population of 1000, on a road worse on a car’s suspension than climbing a sheer cliff, I have your answer. Yes, and they happen to sometimesContinue reading “Note to self: never trust iphone driving directions.”
