If you want to make a difference…

Growing up I think we all had a desire to make a difference in the world one day. To know that our actions somehow contributed to a legacy that changed the face of history, made a difference in somebody’s life, or helped somebody out of a hardship is a special feeling. I believe it’s human…

“Two Roads…” Which to take?

Today I heard a reference to Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Not Taken.” It brought back memories from my High School Literature class, yet this time I remembered it quite differently.

ZULUECHO Lifestyle Initiative – Founder’s Story

If you are one of those people who follows me on social media, reads my articles, or watches my films, but don’t know why I do what I do, this article is for you. The nature of the work I do is often times sporadic, mostly because I’m a creative person and the ideas I…

I’m sure you’ve all heard it before – “surround yourself with the right people.” While some of you may have already realized the importance of this practice, some may not have just yet. In addition, I wanted to try to explain a bit more about why this truly is an important thing to think about,…

Information about the world, about our peers, about our leaders, about our role models, and sometimes about ourselves.

Designing Happiness

Today I’m going to try to convince you to become an Architect. Sleepless nights and long hours, stressful reviews and countless models and drawings – just kidding.

Support Systems

If life is a game and we are the players, it means we need a strategy to help us navigate it. It’s a difficult game, one with many surprises and unforeseen challenges. A game with multiple “innings” each testing you on a different subject. At some points you learn a new trick to use in…
