No Blog Post Today
Today is Memorial Day in the United States, and I’m taking the day off from blogging to spend some time with my wife as we settle into our new home and prepare for the birth of our first son in just a few short months!
Thank you for understanding.
I encourage you to do the same, and make time for friends and family this week.
It’s easy to forget what all this is about. And by “this” I mean productivity, building a business, and the steady hustle towards pursuing a dream.

I like to work. In fact, I’ve been labeled “workaholic” many times in the past.
Work gives me a purpose—something I can put my hands to, which supports the people that I love most.
But work is a means to an end, not an end in and of itself. A life well-lived is made up of more than just accolades, promotions, and achievements like business success.
Starting today, I’m launching my first giveaway on this blog. You have a chance to get a free copy of the Get Noticed!™ Theme along with VIP access to my new video course, The Get Noticed™ Theme Unlocked.
The Get Noticed!™ Theme is the premium WordPress theme I’ve used on this website for the last year and a half—it provides the design that you see right now.
As far as themes go, it isn’t cheap—the license I’m giving away sells for $397.
But the Get Noticed!™ Theme is far beyond any other theme I’ve seen or used before.
As more of our world continues to move online, passwords become increasingly important. Most people’s life security relies on their ability to come up with unique phrases used to secure everything from bank accounts to Facebook profiles on the web.
No joke, my password to every online account used to be “corkyteen!” (you could tell it was secure because I’d used an exclamation point).
That was nearly ten years ago, but it’s hard to believe I ran around with that kind of risk.
After all, so much of our identities are tied to the web—and now my business is, too!
We are a generation of tired, weary people. Naps are perhaps the best solution to this dilemma—but only if done right, so you actually get rest.
I’ve experienced it myself, regular naps can double your energy level in the later part of the day.
But not all naps are created equal.
I’m sure you’ve experienced it—some naps leave you lethargic and groggy when it’s time to finally wake up.
