What to do While Sitting in Italy?

While I’m stuck in Italy I have been asking myself what can I do to earn an income? Here. There. Everywhere.

I thought a couple years ago to be a travel designer for Italian vacations for the luxury market, then I thought I would run a B&B and tour company in Italy for the luxury market, then I thought I would teach English to Italian businessmen, and now I’m back to Continue reading “What to do While Sitting in Italy?”

Copy Vitals

Hello. It’s been a little while, but when it’s the same old thing day in and day out why keep writing about it?

I will say things have gotten a little bit interesting in the past week. I went to Montefalco for a photo shoot for my upcoming new Sip & Savor Italy company. In a word it was DELIGHTFUL. Continue reading “Copy Vitals”

Days 1 & 2 – Goals and I Have an Idea!

Good Morning all you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed readers of mine!

It turns out that I accomplished zilch after Tuesday’s post. But I will start with this:

Day 0 of Goal Reaching – Seeking Accountability Partner

Yesterday was Monday, the first day of reaching for the stars, those 600 thousand smackers, a sexy lean body, and more of the right kind of relationships. Let me describe the day for you.

FLOP.

Why Was it a Flop?

Sunday night I went out to have dinner. Here in Italy, there’s usually wine involved. Continue reading “Day 0 of Goal Reaching – Seeking Accountability Partner”

Coding, Wanderlusting, or Both? Or Something Else?

That is the question.

I can’t make the move to Chicago for the Code Platoon boot camp. I wish I could, but I simply don’t have the fundage or the family to help me. My family… I will save that topic for another day when I’m more awake.

Speaking of being awake – let me go make my second cup Continue reading “Coding, Wanderlusting, or Both? Or Something Else?”

Introducing the Future Ms Ruby on Rails

Last year while I was sitting in a very HOT Ljubljana, Slovenia I began to think again for something like the millionth time of getting back into IT. Instead of turning to Dice or Booz Allen Hamilton’s Alumni program I went to LinkedIn. In February of 2016, I was given a year free on lynda.com and Continue reading “Introducing the Future Ms Ruby on Rails”

Follow up to Desperately Seeking a Career

My First Video is Published: Lessons Learned

I’ve been thinking about making a video for quite some time. Actually, I made a video a couple of years ago walking through Bracciano with my camera. But what I’m talking about is sitting at home and talking blindly to the computer about things.

Things like my GIFTE program and my Insane Productivity Continue reading “My First Video is Published: Lessons Learned”

Learning How to Be a Better Me

Word of the day:

EXCITED

Why?

Because I was incredibly fortunate to be able to get in on Darren Hardy’s Insane Productivity program. I have been following him for the past 12 years through his Success Magazine, which I LOVED.

Last October I purchased a digital subscription to Success Magazine Continue reading “Learning How to Be a Better Me”
