When my lovely wife and I rang in the New Year, in the back of my mind, I was thinking about what 2022 would hold. You know I’m a big ritual guy, and so it only made sense to use that time as reflective, empowering and supportive to my own goals and dreams for the upcoming year. And boy wouldn’t it be grand to live in that space for a little bit longer than a [...]

I thought maybe I was sick -according to WebMD I was definitely dying - but it turned out to be something you’ve probably experienced [...]
“Resilience is just like a good beer, it brews, it ferments, the ingredients transform and eventually you've brewed your own batch of success.” When I look back on my life, I can see that I have always been connected to my purpose in different ways.
