Staying Business-Focused While Enjoying Life

I reminded my 17-year-old son recently that while this is a great season of his life, the best is yet to come. The reason we were having this conversation is that he is trying to drag every last show-stopping second out of summer to the point of exhaustion. …

Ready. Set. Let’s Take on the Summer

Carpe diem! Sometimes it’s easy to let life stand in your way — work, family and a crazy amount of responsibilities. It isn’t easy to find a place of positivity and seize the day. That’s right, I quoted Robin Williams’ character from Dead Poet’s …

Dedicated Dads Deserve Praise

No Matter Their Title, Women Mean Business

There is an ongoing debate regarding the way men and women are different. Obviously, there are the physical characteristics, but do men and women really have emotional or intellectual differences that skew by gender? I spent some time online to see if …

Stealing The Show

Preparing for this month’s issue of the magazine had me reminiscing about my time in the theater. When I was younger (much younger), I thought I wanted to be an actor. How much fun is it to pretend to be someone else for a while? I loved leaving my …

Bikes, Books and More Make for a Sizzling Summer

I have a confession to make. I’m finding it difficult to concentrate on all the work I need to do right now with the summer in full swing. I can’t remember a time in the last 10 years that I’ve been so distracted by the warm weather and the lure …

Devoted Dads Deserve Praise

This year on Mother’s Day I was a bit nostalgic and brought out a few family albums to reminisce about when the kids (Kyle, 21 and Zach, 16) were younger and so darn cute. It’s pretty amazing to see how much things have stayed the same. They most …
