How Taking A Risk And Moving To Chile Saved My Life


This is a guest submission from Bud Hennekes from aboundlessworld.com The statistics don’t lie. A recent study showed over 70 percent of Americans are unfulfilled in their career. Are you part of the 70 percent? I know I was. Maybe you don’t like your boss. Or perhaps you know you can do more. Different story, […]

Getting Pissed And Saying Fuck You To The Rules


I’m pissed. I went for a run today and in the midst of listening to “Titanium”, I got to thinking about my life. By all accounts, I have it all: A thriving personal training business, ample freelance writing work, total flexibility over my schedule, 2 incredible daughters, and a wonderful relationship with a highly supportive […]

Confessions Of A Highly Creative Introvert


This is a guest submission from Andy Mort from sheepdressedlikewolves.com My birthday. Again? Already? I felt no different from last year, or the last five years for that matter. But the statistics don’t lie. Number of years lived: increasing at an alarming rate. And I was telling myself the same old story yet again. ‘This […]

Your Time Is Worth Much More Than You Think


When I wrote my post, Grab Today By The Balls Because It Just Might Be Your Last, last week, my goal was to try to get you thinking about how short life is and how everything we hold most dear can be gone in an instant. It was intended to be a wake up call […]

How a Harvard Grad Who Hated Her Job Started a Crazy Wild Love Movement


This is a guest submission from Alexis from crazywildlove.com I was 22. Like many other 22 year olds, I had just gotten out of college with excitement and ambition. I had majored in “Management” even though I found it a bore, but I thought at least it’d be a safe job and could buy me […]

Grab Today By The Balls Because It Just Might Be Your Last

The Thunderous Sound Of Silence

Sometimes You Have To Close Your Eyes And Leap


This is a guest submission (the first since 2011) from Michaela from WorkerBeeMarketing.com I should have known there was a problem in my marriage when I allowed myself to come this close to having an affair with a co-worker; a co-worker who wouldn’t have been given a chance in hell if I’d been single (sad […]

Turn The Page


I’m not sure if I’m happy, sad, angry, or hurt. I think I’m just indifferent at this point. I got an email from my attorney last week telling me that I’m officially divorced. That’s it. No tears, no hugs, no condolences. Just 8 years of a marriage now just another statistic in the Maryland court […]
