Do what you love for a living….& wake up the world with your work!


I have a recurring dream that I’m running out of time.

In my dream, I’m never sure exactly what it was that I was supposed to do, I just know, when I wake up, that it’s too late.

I know it’s just a dream.  And with the right amount of caffeine and conversation, I’m usually able to shake it off before 10am. Read More »

It’s Your Time to Tumblr

Yet another insightful article on some of the amazing benefits to building your blog with Tumblr in 2015. In addition to being fun, free and having a veritable avalanche of themes designs and endless content curation opportunities + community connections to make regardless of your niche, market or industry……Tumblr is also becoming a legitimate blog, brand, BUZZ and business building platform as well.

Simply stated, there is no easier way to create copious amounts of content than to CURATE, add and embellish upon what others have already created….and Tumblr is probably the easiest, push button platform in the world for doing just that. (and it’s obviously encouraged as well – no wondering how much of that article, blog post or content to clip or snip – Tumblr wants you to share the love, and that’s a beautiful way to build a brand new blog from scratch)

Check out the recent article from the Washington Post on why Tumblr is the new “Front Page” of the internet… the link following the excerpt below.

The Internet story of the year — perhaps of many years — began with a breezy, under-punctuated blog post on the Tumblr of some 21-year-old no one had previously heard of.

“Guys please help me,” the blogger wrote, ignorant of the fact that her words would echo in eternity. “Is this dress white and gold, or blue and black?”

“The dress,” of course, has since become a Web phenomenon of unparalleled virality: 73 million page views on the post itself, 550 tweets a minute, and, its peak, a veritable Everest of takes and think pieces. Buzzfeed, the outlet that first broke the story (insofar as it was a “story,” and swiping it from Tumblr counts as “breaking”), published 30 follow-ups within a week. They had, per the “viral guru” Neetzan Zimmerman, reached “Viral Singularity.”

But while the dress may have been singularly popular, the path it took to get there was increasingly commonplace. From the depths of Tumblr, it conquered the entire viral Web: Buzzfeed, Twitter, Facebook eventually.

“This seems to be the new Viral Cycle,” Zimmerman told Vice’s Adrianne Jeffries.

It’s impossible to conclusively quantify the meta trends of the viral Web, of course, even given the host of tools and consultants dedicated to that pursuit. But last week, when Pricenomics’s data team scraped Buzzfeed to see where the viral powerhouse finds its stories, it found that Tumblr came out on top — over YouTube, Reddit and Imgur.

Write Better

To be honest with you, I’m not even sure that title is grammatically correct.

And if I had used the Hemingway writing app to create it…….I wouldn’t be so insecure about the power of my prose.

I’ve been checking out a whole slew of productivity tools over the last few weeks for a product creation challenge for authors, artists, content marketers and other creatives, and a few really stand out as both useful…and fun to use.

The Hemingway App (free to use it online – 6 bucks and change to download the desktop version) is really super simple, and uber cool.

Check it out here…..or read a little extra blurb about it below.

Some other really cool tools that you need to know about if you are creating content on a daily basis? is awesome and totally free.

And Ulysses (the writing app, not the Greek mythology version of myself after one shot of tequila too many) is aesthetically awesome and addictive to use to boot.  (a bit of a different animal, and only for Mac afficionados,  but well worth checking out if you write often like many of us do)

You can read some more of what Hemingway does below, or check it out here.


What’s the Hemingway Editor All About?

Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear. It’s like a spellchecker, but for style. It makes sure that your reader will focus
on your message, not your prose.

Too often, our words are like our thoughts — innumerable and
disorganized. Almost any bit of writing could use some cutting. Less is
more, etc.

So, the Hemingway Editor will highlight (in yellow and red) where
your writing is too dense. Try removing needless words or splitting the
sentence into two. Your readers will thank you.

Readability Grade Levels

Hemingway builds on the innovations of researchers of a field
called “Readability.” These researchers study how understandable a piece
of writing is. Part of that work involves trying to decide which U.S.
grade level is required to understand your text.

Rejection Therapy

I love this idea. Purposely and passionately seeking out someone to metaphorically (or literally) slam the proverbial door, in your face… least once per day.

The fear of rejection, or it’s close kissing cousins are without a doubt, the primary thing that holds most of us back from dancing in the direction of our dreams, and destiny.

After all……

Who wants to hear NO?

If you play the rejection therapy game, YOU do. (you can’t win without it 🙂

I can still remember the girl who wouldn’t do the couples skate with me in 4th grade after I traded 4 canteen tickets for the fancy black skates in anticipation.

As evidenced by her Facebook page, she has gone on to be an epic failure as a human being, which serves her right for doing me wrong.

But the truth is, rejection is a fact of life.

We all face it.

Those who embrace it are braver than I.

This is definitely worth checking out, even if only as a small reminder that you always get to choose.

What some avoid, others embrace.

And that, much like other roads less traveled, does make all the difference in the world 🙂


consists of only one main rule…

Please notice the wording of the rule. It doesn’t say you must attempt or try to be rejected. The rule is you MUST be rejected by another human being. In this game, rejection is success.

No other outcome will meet the requirement of Rejection Therapy.

To put yourself in a situation where rejection is likely, but to your surprise your request is granted, is not a successful outcome. Why? Because you weren’t rejected. You didn’t ask for enough.

There are a few stipulations as to what counts as a rejection, but the above rule is all you need to benefit from Rejection Therapy.
