my son got chased by a goose

We were at Greenfield Village over the weekend taking in the beautiful Michigan spring. In one area of the Village, there's a soccer field. There was no one on the field. My son loves open fields... he's big into running, plus he's becoming a great soccer player. I told him to go down to the field and run around... because why not? As he was running to the field, I noticed a few geese on the sidelines. One of the geese stood up and started walking toward him. "Solomon," I shouted. "That geese...

After taking about four months away from personal branding and online business, I'm back at it. It has been a busy four months — my daughter was born in December, and between my 9-5, sleepless nights, and handling bureaucratic nonsense with health insurance (don't get me started), I didn't have much time to tend to my personal brand or online business. Thankfully, my little girl is mostly sleeping through the night and we're getting some decent rest. Welcome to all the new subscribers! I want...

For 42 years, Uncle Bill busted his rear working at the Chrysler Transmission plant in Kokomo, Indiana. Not a bad career... it was labor intensive and back-breaking work, but all-in-all, not a bad career. Uncle Bill was a smart guy. A history buff. Well-spoken. Could fix just about anything. He was a strong, masculine leader. He took great care of his wife (my aunt) and his kids (my cousins). He called me "The Bubble Gum Kid" — because during my childhood I went through a phase where I loved...

It has been about two decades since I was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Shortly after I was diagnosed, my doctor prescribed some pills. They helped with focus, but they had some other side effects, including loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, increased anti-social behavior, etc. I didn't take the pills for very long because I didn't like the way they made me feel. I continued struggling with focus and my parents gave me the task (at age 15) to find a holistic...

I dropped the ball on sending out an email last week about my LinkedIn progress, and it's primarily because life has been smacking me around lately and I haven't been able to invest the time I'd like to on the platform. Regardless, I've still been growing on LinkedIn (standing at 399 followers at the moment) and was issued a "Top Writing Voice" badge late last week! But the question still stands: Will I be able to hit 1,000 followers by the end of the month? So, here's the deal... I believe...

Happy February! Over the next four weeks, I’ll be breaking down the exact strategy I’ll use to grow on LinkedIn from ~340 followers to 1,000. My emails will come out once a a week and it’ll include thorough explanations behind my strategy as well as progress reports. I will be as transparent as possible, and if I don’t hit my goal of 1,000… Well... then I’ll change up my strategy and do what it takes to hit 1,000! I’ve watched valuable creators grow very quickly on LinkedIn and I believe I...

When I worked in construction sales, my jobs had to profit 30% or higher otherwise I wouldn’t be paid commission. It put me in a position where I needed to make sure my laborers weren’t wasting time or materials. The most efficient way to ensure I'd hit 30% or higher was to use subcontractors who I paid a flat rate for labor… rather than using our in-house guys whose time on a job was clocked down to the minute. Even though I always beat up subs on their pricing, I made some great...

Reading equals clarity. There’s no disputing this fact. I’ve always been an avid reader, but over the several many months my reading habit fell by the wayside. Something having to do with my wife being pregnant etc. etc. These past few days, since I’ve been out of the 𝕏 vortex, I’ve been on a kick with some good books. The first one I blew through was The Pathless Path by Paul Millerd. Paul is giving away the ebook for free, and you can download it here. This book had been on my “to-read”...

Today (actually yesterday) was a snow day for my son. We got a ton of freezing rain early this morning. And usually on Tuesdays I “work from home.” That means I do, well, some work. But not a whole lot. See, I work at a place where a vast majority of the in-person days involve screwing around in the office for several hours. I won’t even get into some of the shenanigans that happen in the office… but I will say, it involves a whole lot of not working. But today, “in the office,” my son and I...

Dear Friends: Today, I'm announcing I'll be taking an indefinite hiatus from 𝕏. Over the weekend I had a moment of clarity and I realized the stuff I was doing on 𝕏 no longer aligned with my goals as an online creator. When I first started building on 𝕏 back in June 2023, I was doing it because I wanted to drive traffic to my copywriting and web design offers. Shortly after I started posting on 𝕏, I got swept up into the whirlwind that is Money Twitter and lost sight of my goals. Then, around...
