I've Been Lost, Soon to Be Found: It's Ski Season!

The last few months have been mostly a blur.  I've been traveling for work all over the US:  Detroit, Chicago, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans and Santa Cruz.  Between shows I managed to work in getting married to Stacia Kennedy in Hawaii on October 3rd, was injured after my car was smashed into and totaled while sitting at a stop light - and have been refused contact with my beautiful, talented and smart 11 year old daughter

Health Insurance for the Self Employed: What to Do When Obamacare Does Not Work For You?

My wife Stacia Kennedy and I are both self-employed.  Despite the advertised intentions of Obamacare, we have found that it is neither easy or affordable to get health insurance.  Maybe you have had the same experience?

We are at a point where we need to have health insurance.  I have a hernia that is about to pop at any point.  Stacia and I are also planning to have a Monkey baby (not a monkey, but a hopefully human baby to be born in the year of the Monkey).

We are looking for affordable options for health insurance that doesn't take 11 months to kick in.  Do you know of any options for affordable health insurance that takes effect quickly?

Thank you very much for your help with this issue that is very important to us.

Looking for Great Recipes Healthy, Tasty or Healthy AND Tasty?

Great Recipes healthy vs tastyGreat Recipes Needed for Family Dinners

Since adopting a tradition of Sunday family dinners I need to try new great recipes.  What the heck - I've got live guinea pigs to experiment on ...

I'm still not sure if I should be looking for great recipes that are healthy, or should just focus on making great recipes that are tasty.  I'm on a clean eating live-it most of the time, but I'm ok with an occasional 'cheat meal'.  I'd prefer to serve people (especially family and friends) healthy food, but also want to make sure that it is something that they will eat and enjoy.

No Smoking Bellevue: If You Are Caught Smoking, You Better Be On Fire

I really hate inconsiderate cigarette smokers. Maybe because both my parents smoked more than a pack a day when I was a kid (and are suffering from health problems as a result). Maybe because I got in inhale A LOT of their second hand smoke (this was before they came up with a name for it). It's probably just because cigarette smoke smells HORRIBLE!

Cigarette smoke gives me a headache and makes me feel like crap. I hate the way cigarette smoke stinks. If smokers only knew ...

At any rate this video is about my plan next time someone comes and smokes a cigarette under my balcony at The Ridge in Bellevue. Watch the No Smoking Bellevuevideo to see my plan and then let me know what YOU would do.  1) If you were a smoker who got squirted with water and 2) If you had to constantly smell the smoke from somebody else's butts.

Another Test Post

Can Stacia Loo leave a comment on this post?

Did I Really Just Tell My Fiance She's Not Really a Girl?

How to Run Your Business Like a GirlI cannot believe it came out of my mouth, but I just told my fiance Stacia Loo that she's not really a girl, that she's more of an entrepreneur ...  She chuckled - I think in agreement, but not really sure?

Stacia prides herself in being an entrepreneur, so that might have sounded good to her.  To put this in context, we were talking about my 11 year old daughter Jacqueline, who I am quickly losing touch with.  I'm trying to figure out how to get closer again, but it's really hard to conceal the facts that I detest shopping malls, and am really not interested in makeup ....  I was thinking out loud, "owell, I guess she's a girl" and then Stacia said "well I don't like that stuff either".  That's when I told her she's not really a girl.

BUT - the thing is, she IS totally a girl.  A little girl, a woman and an Entrepreneur.  She is a girl who is pushing through barriers and helping others while doing cool things.  She is a girl who is successful and really starting to bloom.

BTW - If you are in business and you want to learn how to get more customers online using video (ie YouTube), then you will want to go to Stacia's free class in Bellevue next Tuesday evening June 2, 2015 from 6-9.  Here's where you can get more info and RSVP:  YouTube Marketing for Business.
