Columbus (Half) Marathon: Done-zo

Well. It’s over. After 14 weeks of training and mental prep, the half marathon is finished. It’s a rather anti-climactic feeling… kind of like when you meet a Tinder match in person for the first time and their IRL (“in real life”) face is a mere shadow of their flattering,[…]

It Girl: Amy Clark

So look. Amy owns her own business, takes kick-ass pictures (including my recent head shots thank-you-very-much), is a wife and mother of two, oh wait she owns a SECOND business, and exudes confidence, snark and wit. She’s just the kind of woman you look at and think, “Damn, that’s an[…]

Book Club: “Start with WHY”

A recent client engagement prompted me to read the book, “Start with WHY” by Simon Sinek. I enjoyed it quite a bit – more so for the thoughts it provoked around the purpose of my own life rather than for the genius content it contained (trust me, the genius was[…]

I Like Beer, Do You?

Let me preface this post by saying that I don’t know much about beer. But I really, really like it. I do know that I enjoy IPAs, and that one-and-a-half Stella Artois will knock me on my ass. But beyond that, I am far from a connoisseur. That said, I[…]
