Say NO to Settling

We make daily, weekly, and monthly goals to help us move forward, toward something grander.

The simple ones are broken down into smaller […]

Change The Narrative

In Today’s society, there is a generational gap that has produced tension between the generations. I am eager to change this narrative. The older generation lived in an era where you needed a degree, specific trade, office or another qualification to work a nine to five job. This has been the dominating niche for a […]

Live Factually, Enjoy Reality

There are many approaches to living factually, because everyone has an outlook on the term. I was taught that living factually means to be present as much as possible by catching yourself in the stories that have been created. Hence, the last post was an introduction to this lifestyle.

Lost In Stories

Today’s post ignites a new era for the blog. Entrepreneurship is much more than business, it is a lifestyle that encompasses all that one does.

Rest…

Ever wonder why there are varied rest periods between sets? Or asked how come this plan says thirty-second rest between sets and the other says one minute?

Story or Fact, You chose!

There are times when our daily/ weekly business goals are not enough. We accomplish everything on the checklist, yet, there is no real sense of achievement.

Pre-Workout?

Everyone has the “perfect” pre-workout routine these days or at least claims they do, so you buy whatever they are selling.

Make It Through The “Drought”

In the beginning, motivation is high, excitement is through the roof and you feel unstoppable. There is no one telling you what to do or how to do it.

Eating too MUCH …… Eating too LITTLE

One of the most important parts of living a healthy life is how we nourish ourselves and what that consists of. Now I am not a nutritionist (I know a good plant-based one if you need) but over the years I’ve tried a few “diets”. Some of them are carb cycling, high protein, fasting, just […]
