Robert Kraft 1941

“I know I played, two of my sons played, my three grandsons play so we have three generations playing the game, and I think the life lessons that you get playing football are worth the risk.”

*What risks are you willing to take to learn life lessons?

Amanda Crew 1986

After training for a role as a wrestler in the film Chokeslam, Crew fell in love with weightlifting.

“It sounds cheesy, but it completely transformed my life,”

“A good weight-training session is incredibly empowering, especially if I’m having a bad day.”

*Think of donating to the McKnight 360 Foundation or donating time to help provide a well-rounded and positive educational experience to young people in need.


Suze Orman 1961

“Pull out your three most recent bank and credit card statements, circle every charge or debit that is not a necessity, and ask yourself, “Can I eliminate this cost entirely?” If not, can you scale it back 30 to 50 percent? Every time you cut expenses; you can put the money toward bigger goals.”

*Do this during your 2 p.m. meetings/work calls.

What are some of the costs that you can eliminate?

What is a bigger goal that you can save for?

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.
