We lucked out on Small Business Saturday.
Since we never close charge/credit cards we no longer use – because it can hurt your credit (how screwed up is that?) – we had a few retired American Express cards that we could fire up for the event. Read more
It’s that time of year again – the season of gratitude, the time for giving and receiving. That can only mean one thing… Passports with Purpose (PwP) has arrived! Read more
As I write this, we’re sitting in the shade just off the beach near Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica. This jungle setting is a must-do for any visitor to Costa Rica. It’s harsh, but it’s fantastic. It’s been an illuminating experience for us.
We’re sweating it for more reasons than you might think…
Today is a slow day in Costa Rica. By design.
We’re hanging around our jungle lodge, watching the ocean, catching up on work and keeping a close eye on election results. Read more
Although we’re in Costa Rica, this isn’t a post about Costa Rica. It’s about what we’re up to every year in October / November, and it just so happens that – this year – Costa Rica is the perfect place to do it.

The other night we got into a big conversation with some locals in Beijing, China. It’s stuck with us.
Our new friends were expressing their frustration over government mandated web censorship. Most irritating to them? The fact that they can’t (legally) visit sites like Facebook and Twitter. Weird to think that happens, isn’t it? Read more
We realize that a big part of wellness is getting the hell out of our thinking minds. The problem is, we’re not great at it. Read more
There are 7 billion of us on the planet, and 1 billion of us go to bed hungry every night. The two of us are lucky. We eat well. The least we can do is be a voice for the ghosts of society who aren’t as lucky.
Several years ago, I started a management position with a huge, global corporation in the financial arena. Before I even had a chance to fully settle into the new job, it was time for a team building event. Oh, yay. Read more
The guy occupying the window seat next to our middle / aisle needed help. We spent pretty much the entire flight – earlier this summer – talking with him about how to more effectively manage his geographically dispersed team of direct reports. Read more
The other day, while driving to a hike in Glacier National Park, we got completely sucked into a random interview we landed on when browsing through the different radio stations. Read more
Join us in trying to eat fewer animal products, and you’ll get a chance to win a Shun paring knife. Ooooh, ahhhh. Details below.
