Patience Is A Virtue, Be More Virtuous

Patience Is A Virtue, Be More Virtuous

Guy Michan talking about patience is like Guy Fieri writing a book on nutrition. I'm not quite there yet, but I'm making strides. Initially, I didn't want patience. I wanted the fu ...

Be A Season Veteran And Beat The Winter Blues

I spent much of last winter walking the streets of Manhattan flash freezing to death. Those harsh, unforgiving winds whipping my body felt like viscous chops delivered by "The Natu ...

I Traded in my Job Title For a Great Story

“So...what do you do?” was a question I did not want to hear from 2009-2012. It was the first question a stranger would ask me, even before my name. I was put on the spot and I had ...

Don’t Take the Bait – How to be a Big Fish in Any Water

Last night week, I was involved in the most awkward and offensive business interaction to date. I decided to wait before releasing this blog post to make certain I was posting this ...

Patience Is A Virtue, Be More Virtuous

Guy Michan talking about patience is like Guy Fieri writing a book on nutrition. I'm not quite there yet, but I'm making strides. Initially, I didn't want patience. I wanted the fucking traffic light to change already. But I've come to the realization that impatience is a serious weakness. And on my quest for self improvement, I'm willing to try things, wacky or otherwise, to help keep things in perspective ...

Be A Season Veteran And Beat The Winter Blues

I spent much of last winter walking the streets of Manhattan flash freezing to death. Those harsh, unforgiving winds whipping my body felt like viscous chops delivered by "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair. There's only so many layers you can put on, and it's never enough. My olive oil-infused Mediterranean blood was not equipped for this environment. Each step I took I felt my abdominal muscles contracting as I re ...

It’s My Party And I’ll Write If I Want To

I have a weird relationship with my birthday. One of my biggest nightmares is spending it at Chili's or some place like that anxiously anticipating the inevitable. I know it's coming, and then when I least expect it, I hear the off-beat clapping. I'm sitting there frozen in terror as the wait staff walks out in unison carrying a lukewarm microwaved cake soaked in vanilla milk while half-heartedly remixing H ...

How To Get Healthy Without Going To The Gym

I live my life in a no flex zone, look at those arms. I've been pretty active all my life but for whatever reason never found going to the gym enjoyable. I don't find it intimidating per se, maybe it's the unspoken language they speak in there that I have yet to understand. Or it's the foreign manmade contraptions that I'm supposed to exert energy on - I just found the whole operation to feel unnatural. And ...

Meet My Friend Redd Simpkins

[audiomack src="http://www.audiomack.com/song/vicarious-music/redd-simpkins-killer-sex-ft-persyce-prod-by-persyce-mix01"]  Redd Simpkins taught me a very valuable life lesson and he doesn't even know it. I left the nest for college in Orlando, FL smack dab in the middle of my obsession with hip hop. The Jansport straps were practically superglued to my shoulders. My jeans were wide-legged, tailored to fit o ...

I Traded in my Job Title For a Great Story

“So...what do you do?” was a question I did not want to hear from 2009-2012. It was the first question a stranger would ask me, even before my name. I was put on the spot and I had nothing. Sometimes, I would fuck around and reply with random bogus occupations -“I'm a lobbyist, archaeologist, astronaut, repair man...man...man, whatever.” I would rather mock the question than fake the funk. Despite how uncom ...

Don’t Take the Bait – How to be a Big Fish in Any Water

Last night week, I was involved in the most awkward and offensive business interaction to date. I decided to wait before releasing this blog post to make certain I was posting this with the right intention, void of any emotional bitterness. The purpose is to highlight a situation and study the game tape. Basically, I was approached to do some writing for a site. I asked a question and a hate-filled tirade f ...

GET LOST

There are two types of people in this world. Considering the global population exceeds seven billion, some could argue that. But for the purpose of this blog post, there are only two. Scenario: Getting lost while driving. Type #1: Shuts the engines down completely and checks the GPS until they are certain of their path. Type #2: Continues to drive unworried about the gas they are wasting until they find the ...

Dame Dash Sits Down With VIBE to Talk Serious Business

The incomparable Dame Dash sits down with VIBE for their “My Philosophy” series to drop some serious entrepreneurial knowledge. There's plenty of life and business lessons in this brief three-parter. Soak up the game.
