Escape to New York

What a wonderful weekend!

My beautiful wife and I made an escape to NYC, just the two of us.

We saw some amazing sights, are truly wonderful food and enjoyed each other’s company alone!

It is so important to create time as a couple, even after being married for almost 20 years.

I am grateful for her.

I am grateful for our family.

I am grateful for our love!


125 copies!

I am so grateful! My book: Purposely Positive has been officially available for about a week and over 125 copies have sold!

Writing has always been a passion of mine and I am so grateful to be able to share that passion!

Suit and Jacket

I love this song! Suit and Jacket by Judah and the Lion!

I actually like almost all of their songs.

They are upbeat, they sing about living life and being kind, trying to be better people. The songs are just awesome!

In this song, the lyrics “Now how am I supposed to slow it down so I can figure out who I am?” Discuss how everyone seems to grow up too quickly. Some give up on their dreams for security.

It is a powerful statement. I am over 40 and still have times I am trying to figure out who I am. I feel that who I am changes throughout my life.

Single, husband, athlete, father, Doctor, friend, author…we continually evolve who we are throughout our lives.

And it is so important that we connect dreams to wherever we are in life.

And those dreams can and should morph as we do 🙂

I am thankful for the reminder today!

P.S. if you want to check out my book: Purposely Positive: How to Live an Intentional and Inspired Life. Check it out on Amazon

Books overseas!

I am blown away!

My book released this past weekend and I have had such an outpouring of support!

Friends, colleagues, family members and strangers sending pictures with the book in their hands!

It is almost surreal.

I am also so grateful that I was able to send some books to readers in Europe. I also had the amazing opportunity to send 20 copies of my book to a charity in Kenya!

This is a wonderful life/ride and I am so thankful!!

An official author!

This weekend, my book was officially published on Amazon!!!

I have always wanted to write a book and about 4 years ago, I got busy following that dream.

It took about 3 years to write, over a year to edit and about 6 months to get the final editing, interior design and cover design set.

I am so thankful for all those who helped me along the way!

I am grateful for my amazing editors: Jennifer Blanchard (, Sheri Lindeman, Lianne Heffelman.

I am grateful for Phillip Gessert ( who took my words and morphed them into art through his amazing interior book design skills!

I am so thankful for Ashley Siebels ( who designed the cover (I love it)!

I am so thankful for all the amazing people who have inspired me throughout my life and whose knowledge I was able to pass on in this book (Brendon Burchard, Simon Sinek, Jon Gordon, Danielle Laporte, Brene Brown, Shawn Achor, and about a billion more).

I am thankful for all my amazing friends and mentors (they are one in the same to me 😉 that helped me through encouragement, joy and comradeship.

I am blessed!

I am honored!

I am thankful!
