As I was reading the book, “Can’t Hurt Me”, by David Goggins, I heard him call out people who talk a big game, but haven’t lived the talk. I agreed, but then I thought—wait, am I full of it? Am I giving ideas on what to do and not doing them myself? I don’t tell…
A business lesson learned from the NC State vs. Clemson basketball game–you can’t make ’em all. My friend and I went out to lunch the other day, where we sat and talked as we waited for our food to arrive. And waited and waited. Seems the establishment we had chosen was having a slow day.…
How it might have been different if that New Orleans Saints wide receiver had been the squeaky wheel. It’s been a while since the no-call that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl and the New Orleans Saints home. And by now I think many are past it. Well, maybe not Saints fans…

I’m not here to call into question the basketball skills of Klay Thompson. He is a phenomenal player and is having a heck of a career—but he just voiced one of the worst thoughts of the sports year. After the biggest upset (per the spread at least) in the NBA since 2016, Klay Thompson was…
A David De Gea and business leader story about the Manchester United Goalkeeper, not getting credit, and making it look easy. Perhaps you’ve heard of him. He is one of the best, maybe even the best, soccer goalie in the world. The world? Yes. Or, at least, that’s my opinion. Other people have different opinions.…

Think about the food and…
