Foundations?

In business and life, we come face to face with short and long term choices. Pleasure at the moment or later in life, seldom do we get both. At least that’s how the saying goes; nothing comes without sacrifice. However, the real question is what are we sacrificing, approval, growth, social life, friends, family or […]

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 […]

Labels?

Recently I have been thinking a lot about dietary labels and the negative/positive connotations set for them. As someone who believes labels are overrated, it is amazing and sad to see the stories people have created in their mind based on other diets. Without taking the time to fully understand someone’s choices or health goals, […]

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 […]

Stay Present No Matter Where YOU are

Recap Last week I wrote about living factually and the benefits of this practice.

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. Breaking it Down In my last […]

Talk Is Cheap, Check The Facts!

There is so much talk going on today in terms of dietary needs and restrictions. Do not eat this food because it causes cancer or another deadly disease. Then a new study is released that refutes the previous one. The food that causes deadly diseases is safe to eat, but now another one takes its […]

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. At the forefront of this is self-care which involves the interior and exterior body. The interior being governed by the mind. A muscle that rarely gets stretched. That said, I […]

Let Loose

There is one thing that makes this journey better. Scratch that, there are a lot of things but one thing, in particular, that takes the cake so to speak. The post-workout shake is not the answer for those of you who count down the seconds till you can drink one. Nor is it a specific […]

Dive into Meaningful Work

Appropriate goals … What’s that?

Continuing from my last post, what is an appropriate goal? Before jumping directly to an answer, take a step back to think about the goals you have set in your life thus far. Do they consist of easy tasks, hard tasks, beneficial ones or simple ones? If they are a mixture of all of these […]

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. This was very common when I first started and it got me so frustrated. It was like no matter what the goals were there was always more that could […]

To Fast… Not To Fast

A form of fasting that focuses on cycling between eating and fasting to yield a plethora of health benefits. Before going into more detail I’d like to point out (as usual) that I am not a […]

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. Rather, you are the captain of the ship, rocket, or any metaphor that come to mind. Startup names start to form, social media profiles are made, […]

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 […]
