This incident confirmed my deepest suspicions

Two things happened last week that reinforced something I’ve already believed. First, one of the guys working on our lawn rang the doorbell and handed me a crumpled up five-dollar bill and said, “I found this while mowing. It probably fell out of your pocket.” Naturally, I thanked him and told him to keep it. Second, Karen and I went …

Quick update from my meeting

Yo! I’m conducting the Platinum Infomarketing Mastermind group for my client, GKIC and wanted to send you quick note about a theme that has been running through all of the hot seats.

Meat Sweats and The Kimchi Overdose
