In Defense of My Podcast Obsession

I’m not the only guy on the planet obsessed with Podcasts. It’s entirely possible that I spend, at a minimum, listening to 10-hours worth each week. It’s also possible I’m lying about that number so when my wife, boss, or Dad reads this they… Continue Reading “In Defense of My Podcast Obsession”

This Blog Doesn’t Look Good

This blog doesn’t look very good. I tell people, “oh, hey, I’m a blogger, and a freelance ghost-writer, and social media expert,” and I can’t imagine what they think if they come to my blog. They see a grey, lifeless layout without much content,… Continue Reading “This Blog Doesn’t Look Good”

Bulletproof Coffee

“Gee. Don never drinks bulletproof coffee at home.” About a month ago, awesome-guy Tim Ferriss posted a video of his power coffee recipe and I thought to myself, “no, Don. You’ve got to draw the line somewhere, or you’ll be dangerously close to becoming… Continue Reading “Bulletproof Coffee”
