Motivation

Posted on August 31, 2006

A disclaimer for my earlier rants: I am blessed. Truly blessed. I have the strongest most impossible motivators to ignore.They make me want to be the best person I can be.

A Shame

Posted on August 31, 2006

Pretty sick of people not taking responsibility for their actions. Pretty sad that so many people miss opportunities. A drunk driver and an amazing entrepreneur.
