Welcome! This is the perfect place to start reading. I’m glad you made it.
If you’re reading this, you most likely fit into one of three types of people:
- You know me personally (or through my wife)
- You’re looking to grow and expand as a person by understanding yourself better
- Or, You want to read about attractions in DFW that no longer exist
This page is for Types 1 and 2. Type 3 is just one of those freak occurrences that happen when one article ranks well for a particular keyword.
I’m going to take bite-sized looks at topics that seem simple and straightforward and challenge the notion that they are at all simple or straightforward.
You can totally skip past this site and move on if it’s not your thing. I probably would if I was you.
No? Well then… thanks? See you in the comments section.
Some background info . . .
I am a writer at heart. I discovered blogging shortly after college. I have owned more websites than I care to admit.
SEO and internet marketing took me on a lengthy sabbatical from writing, and I long to return to writing for writing’s sake in the near future.
Originally from Texas, I relocated to the hill country of Tennessee and raised goats, chickens, guineas and rabbits for five years. I studied permaculture and restorative agriculture during that time.
Our family now calls Florida home. We live near the most beautiful beaches, and we only have to flee for our lives once or twice a year.
My Mission In a Nutshell
I want to challenge the questions you ask and the assumptions you make. Not just to stir the pot (though I was nicknamed “Mister Controversial” at one company), though stirring the pot is a joy in itself.
Regret is Enemy #1. I despise it. I have plenty of it in my history. And I’m now on a mission to help people ask the questions they haven’t asked before that just might lead to a life-changing decision. Little bitty course corrections make a massive impact on long-term direction. I don’t want to miss out on the best things that are possible, and I don’t want you to miss out either!
Other Places I Contribute
Years ago I launched a few dozen websites and sold a few along the way. There are only one or two places I can be found online these days…
Most of my thoughts first hit my Twitter page.
I share reflections on user experience and search engine optimization at SearchMatters.com.
You can read what we’re learning as a family about health and wellness on Mommypotamus.com. My wife Heather is the voice and research behind the site. She covers topics like traditional real foods, natural remedies, and detailed research on a variety of health, wellness, pregnancy, and baby related topics. I’m mostly involved behind the scenes with editing, SEO, technical aspects, and affiliate marketing.
I’m drawn to people who are:
- Eager to learn
- Aware of their unique giftings and purpose
- Focused and highly skilled in those gifts
- Passionate about what they do
- Excellent communicators
- Humble and sincere
I want to hear from you. Drop me a note on my contact page.
