“I had some difficult times, but really, let’s keep it in perspective, nobody died. I’m lucky, I’ve got great kids who are healthy and happy, and as far as I’m concerned, the rest is gravy.”

*Keep things in perspective today.

BODY

It may have only lasted around 35 minutes in total but the intensity was enough to make even Rory breathe a little harder.

*Build stability, strength, flexibility, and speed with this workout in just 35 minutes. This workout will get you breathing harder and ready to play like Rory. (Or as my mom calls him – Roy)

SOUL

ESPN reporter Erin Andrews was awarded $55 million in her lawsuit against the owners of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University and a hotel guest who used a hacksaw to tamper with her room’s peephole and record a naked video of her.

*With fame, comes opportunities to be exploited. With owning a business, comes opportunities to be sued for something that one of your employees or customers have done. Solidify your workplace expectations and culture before even opening.

What food item are you splurging on? “It’s definitely got to be seafood. I love crab legs and any kind of sushi. Fresh tuna is one of my favorites. And if you put truffle on anything, it makes it fancy.”

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.
