The Way Out is Through (Or: How I Transformed My Relationship with Writing and Love)

Writing has always been excruciatingly painful for me.

It takes me FOR-FUCKING-EVER. My inner critics (yes, plural) doubt me every step of the way. And even after spending hours on one paragraph, I never feel like it’s up to par.

So I gave it up. For 2 entire years.

Yet the DESIRE to write – to express myself, to not just consume content but to also PRODUCE it – that never went away.

So, what’s a guy to do?

Mac Apps I Can’t Live Without

Apps, apps, apps. I love apps. The thought of a new app that’ll make my life more awesome practically gets me salivating.

And why shouldn’t it? These days, so much of our lives exists in the digital realm, we’re practically living in a virtual reality! So discovering a new life-changing app is like gaining a new superpower. You can literally extend your ho-hum abilities in UNLIMITED ways…without having to get bit by a radioactive spider.

So these are the top Mac apps that I can’t live without. The crème de la crème. The apps I’d take with me to a deserted island (which conveniently has a power outlet and wifi, of course).

The apps that without, I’d feel like a mere human weakling…

7 Lessons on Creativity from Our 7 Day Vine Challenge

My back was giving out from hours of helicopter thrusting. Catherine was getting whiplash from twerking so hard. Eric was covered in pancake flour.

And this was only Day 1 of 7. We had 6 more days of this madness ahead of us.

What in the hell did we sign up for??

Well, 24 hours prior, the three of us were binging on Vines (those addictive, 6 second looping videos) when we had a great idea: why don’t we challenge ourselves to post our own Vines every day for 7 days?

Seemed easy enough. Vines were only 6 seconds long. It was only for a week. How hard could it be?

Passion for exploring life to it’s fullest – whether that’s with your business or your own happiness – is definitely something we have in common, and exactly what we talk about in this interview.  Check it out!

My band’s cover of A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems” (NSFW)

I finally got to check off a lifelong bucket list item of mine: form an accidental band with my friends (1.2.3.MUSIC) and perform live in front of an audience! And we pretty much picked the most tasteful, non-offensive song for our first ever performance (no, seriously, this is really NSFW)…enjoy!

DISCLAIMER: We’ve kept the original artists’ lyrics and they are VULGAR! Like most of our generation, we grew up loving hip-hop music while still feeling very uncomfortable with the choices of words often used in the songs. We would never ever use language like this in any other context – we were merely trying to preserve the original song as it was written.
