*Get with someone that you trust borrow their brains today. Two heads are better than one. Help each other LIVE FAMOUSLY today.

BODY

Manganiello is an old-school gym rat. He doesn’t do any fancy exercises, just tried-and-true staples like bench press, overhead press, and push-downs.

*Bench press, overhead press, and push-downs – work on those Pittsburgh steel muscles today.

SOUL

John Legend 1978

John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ — is a paean to crazy love, a passion that can’t be deterred by “curves” or “edges” or “imperfections.”

*Listen to John Legend all day. It’s good for your soul. Remind that special someone how much you love their curves and edges – all their perfect imperfections.

MONEY

“I was happy enough to get a nice paycheck and be treated well. It was a very good job. I was able to buy a house on Long Island. I never dreamed I should have $100 million or $250 million or whatever that crazy number is. All I know is I created a lot of characters and enjoyed the work I did.”

*If you are getting a nice paycheck and are treated well – be happy. You could be much happier if you were the one signing those checks and treating your employees well – as long as you enjoy the work that you do.

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.
