Scaramucci is out. Probably one of the shortest job tenures in the history of U.S. presidential administrations.I think he was officially supposed to start last Monday. For some reason, I thought he was named to the position this past Friday, but it was already 10 days ago. Could someone set me straight? Some sources are saying he held the post for a week, but I’m not so sure….Blink your eyes and….
One of our podcast guests said their favorite nonprofit is their own “for profit event”
Clearly not a match for the show, if someone is that self-centered and profit driven, I am not interested in helping them get their message out.
In business, in all of life, we have a duty to help others and to give back. Without contribution, we’re missing a big part of what it really means to be successful.
Needless to say, the interview was canceled and I don’t care to have this guest on the show. *Funny enough, it’s a person many of my entrepreneurial friends see as ‘having it all’ and being very inspiring.
I got hurt at the gym
It’s the cost of doing anything – you will reap the rewards, and occasionally get hurt
Despite getting hurt, I showed up for the 10am LIVE Podcast Training inside my group – taught the crew about the “Authority Advantage Technique” for Podcasters
Showed them how we’ve leveraged interviews to land TEDx talks, email drops to 200,000+ readers, got featured in major publications using the podcast, and how they can do the same.
Now, back to rest – glad Kamala and Bubbies are here to love on me and take care of me because I feel crappy right now.
Today is a success
1 Live Podcast Training (join PSW if you want the training tomorrow)
2 recorded episodes
One killer workout (thanks Tim Hoover for the awesome routine)
And now going to grab some Thai Fried Rice (Tim, I’ve only had 36g of carbs. I can have a cup of rice
Turning 39 on August 11th and entering the initiatory year of 40. Lots of reflection happening, looking through the chapters of my life. I have always pegged “40” as a very important age and always wondered who I will be, and what my life will be like. I notice I have been in a deep planning phase the last handful of years, getting ready for this transition. I feel for me, although I have been in adult years, I will become an Adult, fully immersed in a life I have created so very carefully for myself, and I will finally be able to enjoy the first fruits of the very hard and transformative work – I have been transitioning out of a grief chapter, and I have been transitioning out of my “lost” chapter. I am clear and firmly on a path aligned with my values, knowledge of self, and commitment to being in service to the world. For the first time ever, I am gathering solid answers to the questions “what are you doing?” “who are you?” “what do you stand for?”
I feel confident. holy sh*t. this is what confidence feels like? I feel good in my skin, I feel my feet on the ground and I hear my voice speak through my lips like the energy of a smooth and constant river flowing…warm and cool and sweet and smooth and constant and consistent and knowing. (not all the time, but I catch it when it is like that and I like it and want more of my voice in the world…as it should be! I want more of all of us in the world <3)
I know enough about life to know that things will change, along with the answers to the questions, along with my path and other things. However, I know for certain, that I also know how to heal myself and if I don’t know I know how to find answers, and know how to handle challenging emotions and if one comes up that’s hard I have a pile of practices and people that can help, I know how to find my balance, and I know how to say “yes” and how to say “no”.
I have a plan. For the first time, I have a plan that is long term. A plan that is MY plan. A plan that makes me smile and my heart glow and makes my skin tingle and sparkle.
I know what I like! I know how I like to spend my time. I know that I like to spend time alone floating in the vastness of the heart exploring my own ideas, connecting with nature and writing out my thoughts. And I love spending time with my family, and I love my friends.
I know who I love and who loves me. Who I care for and who I can turn to.
I am pretty sure I am ready! In this last year, I am really working symbolically to get ready for the magical year turning point in 2018…. will I be lighter? stronger? clearer? Will I have more questions and more answers to questions? as always, yes.
(I welcome your reflections on significant ages and turning points in your life, if you care to share… )
I made comedian Adam Strauss call me from an Uber to talk to me about psychedelics and comedy, how psychedelics have helped him ~heal~, what makes comedy psychedelic, and why George Carlin is a psychedelic comedian. We also do the requisite fawning over the Dark Poet aka Bill Hicks. Then I edited it to make us sound like coherent human beings. In particular I’ve crafted the illusion of me having a grasp of basic sentence structure. Fun stuff!
This might be an good next candidate to attempt a moderated “interesting argument” around: https://www.vox.com/…/…/14231266/anti-vaccine-movement-trump I’d need to find a good collection of people on both sides though… and suspect that even asking people to participate would quickly escalate to a typical argument (and that’s not what I want to have).
If this sounds like a worthwhile experiment to you, reply with the number below that corresponds to how you’d like to opt-in:
1) as an opposer to the anti-vaccine movement, but open to a discussion with people on the other side
2) as an endorser of the anti-vaccine movement, but open to a discussion with people on the other side
3) as someone who doesn’t want to directly engage in the topic but would like to witness from the sidelines
And if this sounds like a terrible idea, just react with a or with this:
4) please leave me out of it
Either way, let’s NOT get into the argument on this post. I’ll follow-up with better framing this weekend, I hope.
Yesterday we had our first Slack-led, full day, developer event. We met so many awesome people building apps that make people’s work life better.
We also shared stats on our growing ecosystem with more than 155,000 active developers – devs with tokens that are actively used every week.

Going off the grid has often appealed to me to. I know that its a highly individual act and there is nothing particularly revolutionary about removing myself as an individual from these horrific systems of exploitation, oppression, murder and mayhem. But the idea of just saying fuck it and leaving does appeal to me from time to time.
But increasingly they just wont let you. No shortcuts. We have to reshape this society for anyone to really be free.
