Hello 2011

Yes it’s halfway through February and I’m just now posting. Don’t worry, I’ve been working diligently to get things together for this year. I’ve been spending a lot of time launching a new project for this summer which is a lot of work, but will really be worth it.  I would have to say the first month went by pretty quickly and all with my birthday and basketball season. Really I’ve been holding out on a lot of things until basketball season winds up, but fortunately thats looking almost like mid-March with the way our girls are playing. On Wednesday…

2011 We In HERE!

Old year out, New Year In! I’m new-new! 2 Corinthians 5:17 Love starting it with some basketball! Our team plays back to back today and tomorrow so it will be a fair challenge for us to focus. In our down time, its time to concentrate on 2011! So I’ve decided to set some goals for this year… Personal Bible Commentary- yes this is unrealistic to do in one year, that’s why I’m focusing on the New Testament this year. Another impressive reading list for this year. Start lifting again, I’m still not sure about the cardio o_O, lol. I need three grants…

Other thoughts for the End of 2010

2010 has been tough, but through all the bad I thought to take a page out of some of the blog posts I’ve read this past week and give you all a list of some things I did accomplish this year. Note: These have only been accomplished by the relationships I’ve built (see previous posts). Let’s start with working in the WNBA. It was a great 6th month gig with Angela and the Mystics. I love DC, the Verizon Center, Sheila Johnson, and Ted Leonsis. Graduated with my Masters in Sports Business Management. Got a job with Small Business Advocates.…

End of the Year Recap Part 4

There are a few more people to add for this year…. Jim Isbell and I met on a whim this year. My father was spending six weeks out in Provo, Utah when he ran into Jim.  After my father passed along his phone number to me, we had a good phone conversation that turned into a great business opportunity.  When Jim came to visit me in October I was really able to what he was really about.  A loving, caring, family, and business man. I really look forward to working with him for a while. Small Business Advocates has such…

End of the Year Recap Part 3

Well today (after the holidays got busy) I wanted to catch up and highlight some more of the pivotal relationships I’ve made over this year. Angela Taylor has been a great mentor and friend. Being able to work with her at the Mystics was a great privilege and I really enjoyed it. Though I had a lot to learn about the formal work environment, and even the DC professional environment, I had a great example to follow. Angela’s professionalism and will to help everyone around the Mystics organization taught me how to approach and get to know everyone in the…

End of the Year Recap Part 2

If you are just stepping in on this refer to the first recap to get the writing flow. Relocating at the beginning of the year would not have been possible without my family. They really stepped up to make sure my transition to DC would go smoothly. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend time with my aunt Connie Reshard and my cousin Pierre Reshard. My family is very large and somewhat spread out so I don’t know most of my first cousins that well. I would like to know them…but I don’t. My time in DC was…

End of the Year Recap

I know its only November 14th but the holiday season is upon us! Usually I do my yearly recap more around Christmas but I have been inspired to write now. Especially since our family is having a White Christmas in Colorado this year. I really want to unplug when I go out west. This recap is also different in the sense of how I’m writing it. Usually I point out some of the main events, talk about how awesome they were, and tell about what I expect to happen in 2011. This time its different, A Lot different. 2010 really…

Sound the Alarm

Before it all goes up in flames. Everyone can see the impending danger. Let’s just call it ahead of time. Let’s just save the WNBA now. Amidst all the jokes, stereotypes, and bad marketing efforts, executives have been trying to re-brand the league for years.  I have searched tirelessly for a solution myself.  From We Got Next to Basketball is Basketball, women’s basketball is still seeking to solidify its existance.  Let’s just stop the comparisons and focus on what the WNBA is now. A league consisting of 12 teams, that consist of 11 players, which are paid delicately for their…

The First Step is Denial!

Being unemployed has been such a challenge. For me, just not having a schedule with a long list of to do items was the worst. Just drudging everyday by with reading and whatever else was the biggest challenge.  For me to focus the best I find I need a concentrated list of tasks coupled with motivation for the day. I also need real time results, which is very difficult with the work I’m currently doing. Now as my schedule is slowly being filled with upcoming projects, conferences, and working with these small businesses I’m sort of in denial about utilizing any of…
