Social Media Adventure goes to Costa Rica

When I first launched the Social Media Adventure, I wanted to connect with online friends that I hadn't met in person. Very simply, I started driving and went to various cities meeting my social media acquaintances in real life. The support was absolutely overwhelming, and more often than not I was asked the question by those I hadn't yet met in person: When are you coming to my city? OR When are you coming to see me? Surprising to me, many of these requests were from foreign countries. Numerous times I was asked: When will the Social Media Adventure go international? Well kids, the answer is... right now. Social Media Adventure visits Costa Rica I have always wanted to visit Costa Rica. I can't exactly say why it has appealed to me more than any other country, but for the last 5-6 years I have had a constant whisper in my heart: "Go to Costa Rica". It's gotten a lot ...

The Best Office Support Team Ever… Starbucks

As part of what Tim Ferriss (Author of Four Hour Work Week) has coined as the New Rich, I'm never tied to a single location.  I love being on the road and experiencing the things you can't enjoy from behind a desk. To do this, I need the help of my team.  Most of my team is remotely located (the majority are overseas) which is nice for scalability. ...

Trip to South Lake Tahoe for Pizza & Prosperity!

I love Lake Tahoe! Well, that is, except for the cold. :) This was my first time in South Lake Tahoe, NV and I wasn't sure what to expect. After leaving Canada a few years ago I don't tolerate the cold much. Even in Phoenix I get a bit chilly when it drops below 70 degrees... Anyway, back to the story. I ...

This year, I have made 5 separate trips down here, and most ...

The Twitter Addiction – Social Media Adventure featured in Times Publications Article

I haven't been diligent about posting when the Social Media Adventure is featured in the media... but I'm turning over a new leaf.

Massages & Facials & Day Spas, Oh My! (A la Phoenix, Arizona…)

I love the spa. I go all the time. Most people already know that, though, so I'll share a secret that you might not know: I have never had a facial before. Well, that might not really be much of a secret... do men really even get facials that often anyway?  I had never heard of the idea, but when I visited the Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa in Phoenix, they ...

There are very few things that beat an awesome road trip packed with great music!

The old ones are classic, but now this is a new adventure with new places & new faces, and therefore ...
