Bet With My Dad From 1993


My dad is a morning person, and I am not :).

I much prefer to stay up til 2am and wake up at 10am, whereas he goes to sleep super early and wakes up at 5am/6am. When I was a kid he would always wake me up at 6am to work on his VW bugs, or help around the house, or complain about me sleeping in :).

So I made a bet with him on August 20th 1993, at age 13, that in 15 years on a Monday morning I would be sleeping in. And, I won the bet and thus received a payment of $50 dollars. I should have tied it to inflation ;).

Streaks Update + 30 Day Challenges


How are my steaks doing? I am up to 445 days on meditation and doing sessions of 20 minutes. And, I am up to 515 days straight of my morning workout. That is pretty awesome and it has been a hard struggle that has gotten easier with time.

What challenges have I done lately?

1. 30 day challenge to not eat in front of the TV.
2. 30 day challenge to do a nightly mood log of nice things I did that day.

Advice For Entrepreneur Parents


I just launched a new site that collects and shares advice for Entrepreneur Parents and their spouses. Lindsey and I received some great advice from fellow Vistage members and their spouses last year on balancing marriage, becoming parents, and entrepreneurship. When I looked online I couldn’t find much beyond the typical “top 10 ways entrepreneurs put on their pants”, so I decided to start a site to collect advice from real entrepreneurs on a variety of questions. Plus advice from and for spouses on how they tackle it all too.

Check out the site here, it is brand new so the advice is slowly being collected :)

Asiago Cheese = Fav Cheese


I love the taste of Asiago cheese, it almost has this bitter nutty taste at the end. The longer it is aged the more I like it :). Along with Manchengo, it is some of my favorite cheese. I finally decided to dig into it’s history & locale and here is what I learned…

What is it? It is an Italian cheese made of cow milk. The only authentic asiago cheese is made in the alpine region of the Asiago plateau in Italy (they have a EU DOP to stipulate that is the only place that can really call itself Asiago – EU DOPs are fascinating in themselves btw). There are some places in the USA that call themselves Asiago but are not, and they will taste much different than true Asiago (verified). Asiago can be aged or served fresh (I like aged).

Map of region in top of Italy’s boot:

History? They can trace it back to around the year 1000 from that region in Italy. It started off being from goat milk, but by 1500 cows replaced it. Why did they switch? Cows are gentle chewers of grass and stopped digging up the valuable grass roots. Crazy.

It can be hard to find, and impossible to order online still :(

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
