In addition to the best financial and investment advice in the world (in my humble opinion), I care about you as a person, and that naturally extends to ensuring you present yourself well in the world.
Which is why I can’t help but take notice of Domino’s “No-stain Onesie”.
How I’ve survived this far in life without it is beyond me, or the joy I will feel once I buy one.
I’ve decided this is an indication of the great times we live in, in that we have such safety, food, and disposable income that we have to worry about a pizza Onesie. As an adult even.

In today’s technological world, as long as I have internet and a phone, I’m able to run my business from anywhere.
This summer I’m fortunate to spend much more time in our Wyoming cabin now that it’s fully outfitted as another office, just like my Boulder one.
In addition to all my business travel this summer, I’ll be traveling back and forth between Wyoming and Boulder, working strategy in the cabin and having in-person meetings in Boulder.
Life is good.
2015 was the year I lost over 40 lbs and started on a serious martial arts journey.
I couldn’t be happier. I’m totally fanatical about it now, and I owe a lot to the great gym I found at Tran’s Martial Arts in Boulder. The main instructor, Master Tran, is incredible in his knowledge, and supportive in his approach.
With very hard work I’m hoping to earn my black belt in Muay Thai Kickboxing within the next 2 to 3 years, and be proficient in Krav Maga (an Israeli self-defense form).
If you’re looking for something inspiring in your life, give me a call and I’ll talk your ear off about how alive this can make you feel!
I may be another year older this coming weekend, but due to my healthy diet and serious martial arts since this time last year, I look and feel about 10 years younger.
I plan on being around for decades, and am continually awestruck by how fortunate I am in my life.
All my love to my family, clients, and friends.
Time for my annual book review, and in 2015 I ended up reading 95 books, less than the 118 in 2014 but I also had a pretty busy year (lost 40+ lbs, started martial arts, expert in over 40 different publications, etc.).
54% were fiction 46% non-fiction. 70 of the books I rated 4 or 5 stars, so I chose well. I read 11 personal development books, 15 business, and 18 general non-fiction.
My favorite fiction was probably Genesis Extinction Point #4, which doesn’t help you if you haven’t read books 1-3. It’s a dystopian view of a plague brought by an invading alien race. Totally didn’t know where it was going, and very creative.
My favorite personal development book was Extreme Productivity, which taught me the OHIO principal Only Handle It Once. My favorite business book was How Winning Works by Robyn Benincasa, an extreme sports professional I saw speak in August. My favorite general non-fiction was American Icon, a book about Ford Motor Company in the 2000s. Fascinating.
My least favorite book by far was Tony Robbins’ Money Master the Game. Horrible writing, horrible analysis and conclusions.
Anyway, here’s the full list of all my books in Excel format and in PDF format.
