A Bear Crawling Obstacle Course

I live a different kind of lifestyle.  And no, that has nothing to do with my sexuality.  And no, I don’t expect you to care about my personal life. But it is relevant to you, in that I found a great way to target your upper body, using nothing more than the stuff you already […]

Your Feelings and Your Business

Are you motivated by an emotion?  I am.  And while this is not an intentional ego fest, my experience might give you a glint of insight. If you’ve been reading my posts, you most likely know that I work as a small time real estate developer.  Simply put, I buy a house, I fix it […]

Why Credit Cards Aren’t So Evil

For the first time in my life, I have a credit card that is entirely mine.  While I was once an authorized user of my father’s credit card, those days are long gone.  And the weirdest part is, I’m not part of the hedonistic “debt junkie” crowd.  I don’t spend a fortune on techie toys, […]
