A Dads Work Trip Survival Guide

A Dads Work Trip Survival Guide: I just got back from the west coast for a week-long conference where I was hosting a booth to talk about my business. Call me weird, but I like doing these events. I meet a lot of interesting people. Its a lot of standing, a lot of shaking hands, and A LOT of talking. I walk away from the event with a lot of new contacts, hopefully, some new business, and a very sore back and feet. I didn’t take a lot of time packing, and I regret it; one thing is for sure,…

What is the Best Audiophile Turntable for my Money – For a Kid

I am a Wannabe Audiophile and My Kid is into Vinyl. What is the Best Audiophile Turntable for my Money – For a Kid? My 14yr old daughter has taken an interest in vinyl. I must say, I’m pretty happy about that. I love music… but Vinyl? I don’t know the first thing about record players or records themselves. My generation was cassette tapes and CDs. My Dad, on the other hand, Mr. Techie, Mr. Audiophile, was very happy to hear that she likes vinyl. (I claim he is an audiophile, he is modest). So for Christmas, they bought her…

7 Reasons Why Your Next Family Getaway Needs To Be A Camping Trip

7 Reasons Why Your Next Family Getaway Needs To Be A Camping Trip: It is hard to find time to bond with your kids. While I have worked remotely for 20 years, that has often meant conference calls and instant messages 24/7. Plus constant business travel. And kids lives become stress as well with tutoring and sports. Which is why I encourage families to take a camping trip at least once a year. This doesn’t have to be a primitive tent camping experience. An RV or cabin is fine. But as long as it’s a few days away from the…

Sweetness Followed: Book Review for Dad

The novel Sweetness Followed is not some feel-good romp but rather an exercise in the slow dramatic burn.   It’s an esoteric tale that can best be described as a hybrid of John Irving and Chuck Palahniuk.  The sweet and the sour to use a food analogy.  It is a small-town drama that looks at life with the glass as having a huge jagged dark crack in it.  Or, to shoot higher, an alternate mythology as to why the world appears so fallen.  Yikes. Sweetness Followed This is a book you want everyone you know to read, but they have…

How can you Improve Your Golf Game

Improve your golf game: I’ve been playing golf for about 25 years. I don’t really play a lot anymore. Kids and family priorities will do that to a golfer I’m not complaining though. When I was frequently playing, there was a game I would play with my buddies. It wasn’t until recently I found out the name of the game we would play…”Pick Up Sticks”. Its a really competitive golf game.   How Do You Play? You each keep your own score, but the winner of a hole gets to pull a club out of his opponent’s bag. Is the driver…

Tim Tebow This is the Day: Book Review for Dad

Tim Tebow This is the Day is the next installment of a Book Review for Dad. My kids are bookworms. They love to read. They did not get this trait from me. I hated reading when I was a kid. Fast forward 25-30 years to today, if I find something I am interested in, I will read it. I still don’t read a lot, but I do Audible. Does that count? Is that “reading” a book? Kinda? Well, I do Audible A LOT! I recently came across a book by Tim Tebow This is the Day. We went to our…

Getting a MBA with Work, Kids, Wife and a Life.

Getting an MBA with Work, Kids, Wife and a Life.

Getting an MBA with Work, Kids, Wife and a Life: It’s hard for me to believe that it’s already been a couple of years since I got my MBA. No doubt, it was probably one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. When I was deciding if I should go back to school or not, my main concern was how I was going to balance getting an MBA with work, kids, wife, and life. I wanted to go to school locally. There are some great universities near me, but then I got to thinking about online. As I was…
