I hope the New Year has brought you new found optimism. As for myself, I have been staying busy so I apologize that this portal remains so vanilla. This project is my favorite hobby, but because it is a hobby it ultimately has to get subordinated to other priorities. There is no lack of substance, but I am still deficient in design.
I was also made aware that women were unrepresented in my knowledge database. As reparations for this lack of female perspective I reached out to Kristi Frank this quarter. Kristi is the founder and CEO of Saturday Morning Success, which is an online-based company that helps women entrepreneurs live out their dreams through tele-seminars with the country’s top female CEOs, experts, and entrepreneurs. You have probably seen Kristi before either on Donald Trump’s The Apprentice, Oprah, MSNBC, The View, The Today Show, or one of her many other television appearances. Kristi’s interview about mompreneurs can be found here.
This quarter’s wellness interview is with Christopher Talley. Chris is a sports nutritionist who specializes in the unique requirements of ultra-elite athletic performance. He has more than 22 years of experience in the fields of nutritional science and exercise physiology, and his clientele include 3 NBA MVPs, 2 NFL MVPs, 2 MLB Cy Young award winners, world record holders in 4 Olympic track and field events, 2 Heisman trophy winners, and a host of other household-name athletes. The interview with Chris about sports nutrition can be found here.
I have to thank the Live Life Love project itself for this quarter’s life experience. If it wasn’t for the self-imposed mandate of doing something new and exciting every three months I wouldn’t have gone to the Grand Canyon last week, but because I have made this commitment to myself, my wife and I got in our car and drove to Las Vegas where we hopped on a helicopter to take a look at this amazing place.
To honor giving back this quarter, I once again helped aid the athletic sponsorship efforts of a couple of you, specifically Charlie and Nicole. Good luck in your respective races ladies! I also acted locally by donating funds to help a leadership program I was involved in buy a Big Belly for the city of Manhattan Beach.
This is a powerful time to consider starting a new endeavor. Globally I believe the pendulum is going to continue to swing in the wrong direction for at least a few more months (as a nice supplemental to Scott Bell’s interview last quarter regarding the economy watch Jon Stewart skewer Jim Cramer here), but if you proactively prepare now to catch it when it starts heading back in the right direction you will be ahead of the curve. As always, please continue to reach out to me if I can help you in any way with your worthy pursuits. As I mentioned in the interview with Mr. Talley this quarter, I do believe that when we try to pick out anything by itself we find it attached to everything else… which makes helping one another that much more important!
