Serial Entrepreneur Infographic and Missionary VS Mercenary

Someone posted this infographic today in 1871 and I thought it was quite an interesting visual.  It helps to grasp the number of battles some entrepreneurs take in order to claw their way to success.  Also interesting are the one business VS multiple business approach as it touches on a concept I’ve been recently reading … Continue reading “Serial Entrepreneur Infographic and Missionary VS Mercenary”

2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 09, 10, 11, 12 – Tucson, NM to Flagstaff, NM – Grand Canyon Backpacking

And finally the part of the trip which the rest was organized around. A trek into the grand canyon. It was an amazing trip. Life changing even. An interesting note about rattlesnakes, from wikipedia, “Caution is advised even when snakes are believed to be dead; rattlesnake heads can see, flick the tongue, and inflict venomous … Continue reading “2013 S.W.

2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 06, 07, 08 – Las Cruces, NM to Tucson, NM

The heat feels great out here in the desert!  Sweet.  I ended up getting to Tucson around 11:00 PM and was having a lot of trouble with my phone acting as a camera.  When I would turn the screen on it would not activate the touch portion of it about 2/3’s of the time, so … Continue reading “2013 S.W.

2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 05 – Carlsbad, NM to Las Cruces, NM

One of the more uneventful days of the trip but still managed to get some fun things in! Started out by heading to Roswell, hitting Starbucks (and caffeine) and wondering around town.  I took some photos of aliens, went in a few alien shops, and generally just absorbed the area.  Kind of disappointing.  I was expecting more alien fanfare no dice. … Continue reading “2013 S.W.

2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 04 – Carlsbad, NM

Holy cow.  Another packed day. First I went to Carlsbad Caverns and wandered around the area for a couple of hours.  I ran around the area leading into the park like a crazy person, excited about all the views, lizards, cacti, and little mini paths!  Managed to get in early before most of the tourists … Continue reading “2013 S.W.

2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 03 – Austin, TX to Carlsbad, NM

Wow I did a lot today.  :–) It started out with me thinking there would be more crazy weather..and there was going to be.  More tornadoes incoming into Austin.  Possibly thunderstorms and other hail like weather.  Ooo exciting.  But I decided to heat into Austin on foot regardless.  I started by finding the train.  It … Continue reading “2013 S.W.

2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 02 – Fort Smith to Salado TX

Today was a good day.  Started out right eating some coconut flakes, Larabars, and got on the road right away.  The goal was to get past Dallas before rush hour and also get a Crossfit workout in!  Mission accomplished! I purchased a boring non-texas belt at the local Walmart.  They sold 10 gallon cowboy hats here. … Continue reading “2013 S.W. Road Trip – Day 02 – Fort Smith to Salado TX”
