Risking It All For A New Grind

Reawakening The Grinder

Tweet I’ve been on the verge of writing this post for a long while now and up until today, it just hasn’t felt right. It’s coming up on 2 years since I last wrote something for this site but I must say with all honestly that I knew one day I’d be back. And today […]

The Only Decision I Have

As I boldly proclaimed on January 2, this is the year of change for me. As many of you know, I decided to challenge myself to become a better and happier person and committed to taking action towards these things regardless of how badly I wanted to quit. I’ve shared my thoughts about my hopes, […]

Who Is Your Personal Hero?

A few days ago, I was presented with the idea of writing about my hero by my friend, Danny Iny. And to be honest, I had no real interest in writing about it mainly because I have never thought about who my hero was! Sure, I’ve had mentors and people who I’ve looked up to […]

Well the year is off to a good start for me. After almost quitting this blog altogether less than a month ago, I am feeling great about my new direction here. Since committing to this project, I have a new outlook on my everyday life. I am consciously making decisions based on my goals as […]

Leaping Off The Edge

My name is Shane and I am an entrepreneur of a different kind. This is a short version of me. A Short Background I raised myself on the streets of a small town, slept in a tent in the front yard to avoid violence in the home, and managed to look at it all with […]

The Man Behind The Curtain

A Lesson From The Bard Maybe you have felt like this before. I know I have. I’m the type of person who’s driven…but not always in the right direction! No matter how stressed I get. No matter how busy I make myself doing something important. No matter how much I do…It’s all for nothing. It’s […]

Writers, Like Teeth, Are Divided Into Incisors And Grinders

I’ve been told to be my authentic self and to write using my most natural and genuine voice.  So here it goes folks – warts and all – your very first glimpse of the oh-so-complicated life and times of Ruth Zive. I stumbled upon Steve’s blog through happenstance.  It was likely a provocative comment he […]
