On Focus

I really like writing blog posts. In fact, I LOVE writing them, and I get lots of benefits when I do. So why haven’t I been consistent about it recently? One word: focus. One of the first things I noticed when I moved to Los Angeles is that there is a tremendous amount of opportunity. […]

Embrace the Future

Embrace the Future
