The Journey Day 19 12.30.19

We continue week three of 75Hard, gang. Only 60 days in this mental toughness challenge remains. Let’s get after it!

I’m grateful that this holiday season is just about behind us. The holidays are tough for me. I lost my mom and dad during this season many years ago, but the loss still stings. Looking forward to working hard going into this new year and well beyond.


Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

The more people are engaged in taking part in something–intellectually and physically–the more memorable and meaningful it becomes.

We’re live on Instagram now. Look for these hastags: #enm, #emptynestman, #ogceo
