“I tried spinning, I tried running, I tried yoga, I tried Pilates,”

“I realized I don’t like running…I refuse to do it. I like spinning, so I try to mix that in. When I found hot yoga, I fell in love with it and was like, this is my thing.”

*Make hot yoga your thing today.

SOUL

“Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other.”

At one point, he hosted shows on all three major TV networks- “the $20,000 Pyramid” on ABC, “Live Wednesday” on CBS and “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes” on NBC.

Clark learned early to branch out.

*Branch out. The proper way of saying “hustle”. Few hustled like Dick Clark and that’s what made him hundreds of millions of dollars.

CROSSOVER: SOUL

“I never have felt comfortable having a foundation named after me. Originally I asked if we could call it the LeBron James Foundation, or the Brad Pitt Foundation, since I thought that would get a lot more people to donate money. I was told I could get sued if I did that. So I went with the Stiller Foundation, since the point is to try to get as much or as little attention for this cause as my name could muster.”

The Stiller Foundation is working to build more schools, to give more children the chance to realize their potential. You can help by visiting the Support section of the website. Get involved, donate, check out our “gear”. It will all go to funding our programs and supporting the children of Haiti.

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.
