When You Realize You Have An Indomitable Will….
I went to my mother's Facebook page to check on her health and well-being recently. After the 2013 fallout, my mother and I haven't spoken on video or by voice in half-a-decade. Regrets?

Darren Hardy: Disassociations, Limited Associations & Expanded Associations
I had to weed out some people in my life who aren't trying to cultivate the right mindset. I can't be around complainers. This is why I ended up getting scrutinized at work because I was no longer part of the "ain't it awful" club, which is the older Gen X and B men who... Continue Reading →
Thailand: 5 Years & Counting – What Have I Learned?
When I first landed, I was astounded by the humidity. Yes, I had come here once before, but the humidity wasn't at this magnitude.

Turning Points (Finance): Part 2 of 2
Enough is Enough I was laughed at, talked badly about by Thai teachers (they make examples out of you real fast), students flipping me off in my face, disobedient.
