Who am I? Truth is, I’m no one special compared to you. Whoever you are, in your life, you are immeasurably more important than I am. I’m just some dude who started writing a blog as a way to keep his goals for 2013 on track. All I want is for you to find inspiration and share it; make 2013 YOUR year.
If you must know more about me, here’s a basic primer: I’m a early-thirtysomething father of three who owns his own sales business. I am blessed to have a wonderfully supportive wife who is a fantastically creative blogger in her own right. I have two large dogs, drive a late model sedan, and tip a few back with the boys when I can. In short, I’m everyman.
Need more? Really? It doesn’t matter, but if you’re the curious type, then here goes. I moved overseas (New Zealand) right out of college on a whim. Spent the better part of three years there before I was kicked out of the country for overstaying my welcome once my work permit expired. I started my own small sales distributorship shortly after my return stateside, Wisconsin to be exact. I play rugby and, until this year, semi-pro football. I crave adrenaline and love to push my body to its limits. I completed a Tough Mudder in 2012 and will be going back for more torture in 2013. I tried out for Masterchef Season 3 on Fox last year, and cooked my way into the television show. Unfortunately, the love Gordon Ramsey showed me wasn’t reciprocated by the other two judges.
I found myself becoming more and more hooked on my phone & iPad as the past year progressed, and discovered I was wasting my life doing absent-minded crap. I wanted to regain discipline and structure and focus in my life. So as I began making a list of goals for the upcoming year, I decided to go “all-in”. Hence, this blog. All I want out of this is to become a better man this year. All I want for you to get out of this is the occasional laugh and, hopefully, some inspiration.
This is my journal. I hope it inspires you. Make 2013 your year.
