Fittest Entrepreneur Again

Last Saturday I won my second consecutive Houston Fittest Entrepreneur Challenge! That turns out not to be very impressive as there weren’t many entrepreneurs competing this year, but I still took second among all male competitors and improved on my performance from last year, so I feel very good about the results. This year’s eventContinue reading “Fittest Entrepreneur Again”

Getting Ripped

Blogger’s note: I no longer use the term “Redskins,” but am leaving my prior references intact in the spirit of learning.

It is a no-frills, high-intensity gym with lots of heavy equipment – it’s basically what Rocky‘s gym would be like.

Swiss Productivity

Now that I am settling into my routine here in Switzerland, I’m becoming very productive! When not meeting with previous connections or networking with new connections, I’ve been spending most of my time powering through major objectives at the Smart Office Energy Solutions EMEA HQ.

New Year’s Resolutions Progress

The first full week of 2010 has come and gone so . . . how did I do in meeting the goals I set forth in my New Year’s Resolutions? Not too poorly so far. Of my daily/weekly goals, I met all of them except for keeping my fat consumption below 25% of my overallContinue reading “New Year’s Resolutions Progress”
