Weird Uncle LinkedIn

by Marc on October 20, 2014, no comments

LinkedIn is like that weird uncle that you only see at Thanksgiving or Christmas. You don’t really see him a lot, you never know what he’s going to say, you don’t know what to say to him, and you don’t really know what to do or how to act around him, he’s just been around forever […]

by Marc on November 24, 2013, no comments

Lately one of the things I’ve changed in my life, and like setting goals, I used to think it was a bunch of crap, is trying to be more of a Giver instead of just a Taker. Giving and doing for others always came from people I didn’t want to listen to, usually for many […]

I’m standing in the corral before the biggest race of the year in my home town, the Rock n Roll Marathon, huddled among 20,000 other people wearing breathable, plastic clothing, trying to stay warm. With about 5 minutes to go before the start, someone comes on a PA system that’s been pumping music out for […]
