This is a family-favorite over the holidays. Although the story is quite embarrassing in itself, I learned a thing or two from it.

The best productivity advice? Stop reading productivity advice. 

Oh the irony...

Thoughts on reading, comprehending, and actually applying the knowledge in books to use in your daily life.
How many books have you read in the last year? I'd say I've probably only read about 10-12, and that's being generous. Over the past few weeks, I've been making a commitment to reading more. In fac...

It's 10pm, and I'm brewing a cup of coffee. Not just a little bit, but a full on pot of coffee that will largely be finished off. I've been staring at my c

Full disclosure: I've done Zumba several times. And you know what? It was fun as hell.

I'm not going to pretend like I was good at it or even on beat, but I had a good time and I'm sure everyone got a good laugh.

Enjoyment - the missing piece to your exercise program.

Here's a stellar little piece of insight into my childhood: I used to think that I wanted to be Donald Trump - lack of hair and all.

I also dressed up like Eminem for far too long.

Small differences make us unique and are meant to be celebrated...not ignored.

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” Stephen King, On Writing

It took me 3 months to finish a project that should have taken a month. Here's how I ended up getting down to business:
A few months back, I landed a pretty big freelance assignment. Considering my previous submissions to this particular publication had been rejected, I was ecstatic that this one was accepted and gi...

Procrastination can be a terribly addictive process. Remember, the best plan is only as good as the implementation.

The majority of stressors aren't real.

At least, not in the official sense. Much of the stress we encounter on a daily basis stems from putting fake importance on something that isn't that important after all.

Got some great feedback on my previous post on content creation so here's another thought. I may be completely missing the mark, but I don't think so. Thoughts are appreciated.

Does the world need another post on deadlifts?

Got a question the other day all about dat fitness blogging. Here's a longer version of my answer.

I know some people will disagree. Would love to hear your thoughts.
I received this e-mail the other day: I'm having a bit of an identity crisis... I started XXX.com because I love fitness and nutrition and equally love writing. However, the fitness industry is pre...

Story
Tagline
I help people publish things online.
Introduction
For the past few years, I’ve worked in a variety of roles including writing, editing, formatting, and troubleshooting to help others publish their thoughts and ideas. I’m extremely passionate about the idea of digital publishing. It’s what gets me up in the morning and keeps me up late at night. That’s why I made it my focus after years of studying exercise science and working as a personal trainer. Currently, I’m fortunate to work for Automattic, the parent company behind WordPress.com. I also do a bit of freelancing for a variety of fitness publications.
