Go time

Rochester, NY 10:20 AM The time is now. Today is the day. I’m about to unveil the book website (and video) to my network as well as the Facebook and Twitter world. Sharing new ideas and projects is incredibly exciting, but also a little nerve-wracking. It’s January 31, 2013. Let’s see what kind of ripple we can make.

Bye for now

Charlotte, NC 8:02 AM Being a traveler, the starts to a visit are always filled with such anticipation, excitement and potential. The end of the trip always brings the downer of saying goodbye (today I have to return the rental car [VW Passat = nice] and catch my return flight). Charlotte has been great. I spent a lot of time with my aunt, uncle, cousin and his two girls. We went bowling (I rolled one game = sub 100 = frustration), chowed down on an awesome dim sum feast and I even stepped out of my comfort zone to take on one of the girls in Just Dance on the Wii (she won – and they posted...

Charlotte, NC 9:10 AM Time does not stop. It’s hard to believe that it was 2004 when I packed up a storage shed and my car to go on the road. Every time I come back to Charlotte, I am filled with all sorts of emotions. Gratitude for the adult that I became while living here. Awe at all that I have been able to experience since going on the road. Happiness for my friends I met when I was here. Joy for the couples who met when I was here and have since gotten married and had kids. Smiles at the growth of their kids and my cousin’s kids. And, I must say, there is a little bit of what-if in...

Charlotte, NC 10:22 AM It’s fun to be back on the hunt for interviews. A few years ago, IamOntheRoad.com got passed all around the country (and some pockets of the world). This caused my inbox to get the always cool emails that included, “I know someone you should interview…” Just to name a few, those emails took me to NASA to interview an astronaut. To meet the founder of the 401k program. To Arkansas and their first ever female Supreme Court Chief Justice. And to talk with the Founder of Jet Blue airlines. My training and career in sales has been a huge help for this part of the...

So far, so good

Rochester, NY 6:15 PM My brain and my gut are revved up. I’m getting exposed to all sorts of great stuff: Interfaith, Islam, Hindu, and biblical interpretation just to start. As I get into it, this project is seeming to be bigger than I imagined. The first book (Love Your 84,000 Hours at Work) was pretty broad (people who love their career), but it had one central theme (work). On the Spiritual Road has one central theme – religion, but learning about and then explaining 12 of them is not going to be simple. Each religion seems to have so much depth to them. And branches. Yet, I know and...
