Up Early

Dear Son, So today might well be the day! I’m up early this morning for a business call to Sweden that didn’t actually happen, and imagining what life is going to be like after you’re born.  Very different, I suspect! Today, a lot of people are skipping parenthood.  They would rather keep chasing their own […]

Virtue Signaling

Dear Son, One of the most obnoxious habits that people have today is a behaviour called “Virtue Signaling.” I want to be sure that you know it for what it is, so that you avoid doing it yourself, and are mindful of people who engage in it.

Don’t Wait on Heroes

On Business

Dear Son, One thing I wish more people would do is to run a small business at lest once in their lives.  Not just a hobby that makes a little bit of money, but a real business that brings in a few thousand dollars every month. People these days don’t understand business, so they look […]

If You are Going to Marry, Marry Young

Dear Son, I’ve spent much of the last six years of my life working with married men and couples who are looking to build a better life together.  It has been an opportunity to see the best and the worst in relationships.  I want to make absolutely sure that this blog gives you good relationship […]
