BUILD YOUR BRAND DAY

MIND

“Playing a character who gets visibly older [in This Is Us] has given me the opportunity to fast-forward in time — and my goodness, I should be so lucky if I look like her!”

*Watch some episodes of This is Us (have tissues available), and take today to realize that there is only one alternative to getting older.

BODY

Daisy Ridley 1992

SOUL

*Sit back, relax, and listen to the soul soothing music of Babyface. And when can I see you again?

MONEY

John Madden 1936

*Playing Madden could be your entertainment for the day, but realize how much money John Madden has made from lending his name to this video game franchise. He built up his identity as a successful coach and color commentator first.

To be a brand you have to create the brand.

ENTERTAINMENT

“Unless I’m prepping for something that requires I be really strict with my food, I really do try to eat healthy and clean – but will also have a slice of pizza if that’s what I’m craving.” 

For breakfast: A smoothie with 1 scoop of protein powder, a big handful of spinach, 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1 tsp. powdered peanut butter, 1 tsp. ground flax, water and ice.

Snack: 2 mashed hard boiled eggs with chili oil, salt and pepper.

Lunch: A huge salad (preferably from a restaurant called Sweetgreen’s) that has organic baby carrots, spinach, shredded kale, spicy broccoli, raw beets, bean sprouts, spicy quinoa, roasted sesame tofu, hot sauce, and carrot chili vinaigrette. If you can’t tell, Shay loves spicy food which definitely revs up her metabolism!

Dinner: Baked salmon with a side of asparagus.

 

*Eat like this Pretty Little Liar, all day today.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
