10k Record

My Endomondo app tracks my runs I have done for the last 6 months and says that yesterday I set a personal record in the 10k. However, I think it was the first 10k distance I’ve run in the last 6 months! Endomondo reported my time at 55:47 which worked out to an 8:59 average pace.… read more “10k Record”

Home Office

I am continuing to get my home office set up and it is coming along quite well! I have my sitting desk set up and am working to get my treadmill desk set up with a wireless access point for it.

Launching A New Application

I have been putting a ton of work into my ProvenRecruits software for recruiting. I feel like every time I fix one bug, I discover two more features or bug ideas that I need to work on. The app is slowly coming together though and I am very excited to onboard my first customers next week!

I was 14 years old, sitting in my room at home. My mom had gotten into meth and alcohol and had gone crazy for the last couple of years and left the family. My dad had withdrawn from his family and just went to work and came home and locked himself in his room to watch tv.… read more “School Shootings, Gun Laws, and Anger Issues”

Writing a book

I would eventually like to write a book or two. I am just too busy right now with the business though. I have had a few ideas and even outlined and started a couple. I had a fantasy book with gates where the character would level up. I thought about a nonfiction based on my early business years and relationships.
