Did you know that Halloween originated from an ancient festival celebrated by Celtic peoples more than 2,000 years ago? The Celts lived in the area that is now Great Britain, Ireland, and northern France. Their Samhain (meaning “summer’s end”) festiv...

We like to think that the Urban Ranch & Farm Project has a subversive influence on culture and society. I like what Roger Doiron says about how food is a form of energy, a form of power, and that when we encourage people to grow food, we encourage pe...

Spoke with a fellow entrepreneur yesterday, who implied I'm not much of an entrepreneur because I support U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders' proposal—originally a Republican proposal under U.S. Senator Bob Dole (remember him?)—to expand Medicare. Talk abou...

If there's one thing I absolutely can't stand, it's somebody who pisses on somebody's else's dreams. That's just the worst. Almost as bad, though, is people who let others piss on their dreams. If you're shocked by my choice of words, well, good. May...

I envy kids today, growing up in our economy today. And when I say "kids," I mean anyone in their teens or preteens. Yes, I know being young sucks from at leas

I'm encouraging my friends, especially those with disabilities, to consider entrepreneurship or self-employment options to exert control over their own income, so they're not at the mercy of the government for income.

When I celebrate little victories, it's because I'm seeing evidence of my discipline paying off. I'm seeing that the daily sacrifices are really worth it; that denying myself and pushing myself to delay gratification

If you're a small business owner, professional sales rep, or you're otherwise responsible for generating your own income, you already know how challenging it can be to keep the sales pipeline full of qualified leads you can call on to reliably close...

I hesitated and thought long and hard before posting this; not because it doesn't represent me or what I deal with every day as a man who came to disability after years of living a productive adult life before being confronted by a life-changing even...

These are difficult days to be a supporter for renewable fuels and an advocate for the environment. After all, up is down and truth is treason in an empire of lies. Thanks to U.S. President Donald Trump, his Energy secretary is Rick Perry, who doesn'...

Eric Thomas, "The Hip-Hop Preacher" is one of my trusted voices in entrepreneurship. I love what ET teaches about starting your day with intention. "I start my day at 3 am," he explains. "I'm not saying you got to start your day at 3 am. But you've g...
