It’s been a while, eh?
Truth is, I haven’t found the time to write for pleasure, in any shape or form. I have grappled with what to do with my Mailbag… Should I take it in a different direction and rebrand? Change up my distribution frequency? Kibosh it all together? All kinds of thoughts have come in one ear and out the other…
Then I thought, hold on two shakes of a lamb tail here, Michael… If you write your Mailbag for fun, not to mention there truly is no end goal or destination in mind for it, who really cares if you don’t publish one every single week? Or that it’s harder to find time to write being 100% dialed in to my new career path?
So here I am. Back on the horn. Hopefully with some interesting things to say…
I can’t guarantee that I will be able to write every week but I can guarantee you two things… When I do write, we’re going to have some fun with it. And secondly, I will likely challenge conventional wisdom more often than not which means sometimes (or maybe all the time) you won’t necessary agree with me. And that is A-okay! Call my BS if you think I’m blowing smoke. Seriously! There are few things I enjoy more than uncorking a bottle of red with a pal, diving a little deeper and exploring. Pints and coffee do the trick too.
God damn – feels good to be back in the saddle. Let’s do this.
- Warren Buffett. The most logical investment mind the world has ever seen. It just so happens he’s shared his path to success in his own words. Side note: I am currently enrolled in the Dale Carnegie course. Three of eight sessions through the program and am really enjoying it. I don’t recommend it to business folk. I recommend it to EVERYONE. Mr. Carnegie’s curriculum transcends all industries and professions. It is about learning to communicate as human beings at the most fundamental level. Plain and simple.
- Wherever your greatness lies, go out there and get it. Burn it. Earn it. Keep on chasin’.
