There’s no easy way to “sunset” digital projects just as there’s no easy way to remove an arm or a leg from your body.
This might sound extreme but you may also empathize with the emotional challenge of closing down something that you’ve worked so hard to give birth to. There’s just simply no “right” way to do it.

It’s been 45 days since I last had a drink and the clarity that I have, the joy that I have in my heart, and the excitement that I feel as a result of my (ongoing) decision to remove alcohol from my life is, well… intoxicating.
I’ve struggled with the idea of sharing this publicly and it took some time to get used to the idea (I even teased it a bit here) but today I finally decided to do it:

When my wife and I decided to look into homeschooling for our oldest we didn’t have a comprehensive plan or strategy or anything even close to anything like that.
We simply knew that what had been working was no longer working and that it was our responsibility and opportunity to do something about that change, that discrepancy.

I’m not entirely sure if I plan on doing this regularly, but, I decided to share a few thoughts on earning a few coins via my new-ish YouTube channel and what that’s like.
TL;DR: I made $17 last month (December, 2016).

I received this email this morning that made my heart swell a bit.
I apologize for all of the fuzzy areas – I didn’t want make public the organizations / people that didn’t opt for being named in this email… but you’ll get the gist:

I couldn’t be more excited for my 10-year old who is now, officially, one of my business partners. She’s going to take over an existing revenue-generating project and, over time, oversee all of the administrative and operational needs.
Today was the first day of “training” and I captured a bit of this via the VLOG:

Hey, so, this is a super-cool idea. Oh, and hey, I’m volunteering this month.
So, yeah. That’s about that.

I spent a bit of time waxing poetic (as they say) about something that I’ve become obsessed with over the last year around analytics and data, especially when it comes to high-performance software teams.
We’re affectionately calling it “Engineering Ops” and you can read more of the longer-form here:

I never had a single big break – because few do online. Thriving in the digital space is about constant commitment and engagement rather than being hit-driven like traditional media.
I love that, not only because it’s honest but also because it’s entirely true. You want to know what’s even more crazy? The results don’t have to take much time to start showing up either.

This might sound (and be) a little bit crazy but after 14 years of being with the same phone service provider (AT&T) I walked into the T-Mobile store yesterday and walked out in a miraculous 50 minutes fully converted.
Yes. Insane. Our entire family of 4 (4 iPhones, 2 x iPhone 7 Plus, 2 x iPhone 6S Plus). If you would’ve told me even a few weeks ago that I’d be considering this and making the trip over to local brick-and-mortar to make a swap I would have looked at you funny.
