Know who your people are

I love when things have multiple applications. If you know anything about me you know I’m a total geek when it comes to new technologies.

Does AI scare you?

I want to talk to you a little bit about the future. Now I know that sounds super abstract, I mean “the future” – it’s such a loaded phrase. The future of healthcare? Cars? Technology?

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill. We’ve all had times in our lives where we want something.

Just shut up and do the thing

So as you may or may not know, I do a Facebook Live session that inspires this blog once a week. Until recently I was doing these WAKEUP Calls on Tuesdays, but I’ve decided to move them to Wednesdays. “But why fix something that isn’t broken?” For a few reasons… First of all, WAKEUP Wednesday …
