Help - I Need Your Feedback!

In developing my business, I am really trying to figure out audience engagement first and foremost. I feel like FaceBook is a good fit, but I'm finding posting my blogs oftentimes they don't even get seen. I am trying to figure out if there is a magic time to post when people are typically on, or it this isn't the best way to engage an audience. I've been toying with creating a group or a page on Facebook, and I'm curious for feedback.

On top of that, I…

Organic Relationships - Keep Those Toxic Chemicals at Bay!

Organic.  What a buzz word.  We talk about organic living and organic food and how we want all things natural and good for you.  We want to know not only what we eat and how we live, but we look for how it connects the Earth to ourselves.  We seek positive connections where we restore and renew our Earth with sustainable living and communing with nature, making our own food, and creating environmentally conscious communities. And then....there are relationships.…

Something's Burning!

Wake Up Call

“Phil! Something’s Burning!” It was about 5:30 am and I went from half asleep to up and out in the kitchen in about a 1/2 second. Those that played softball with me back in the day probably aren’t shocked by the speed, but there isn’t much that wakes you up like smoke in your house.

My wife, Heather, determined there was something wrong with the refrigerator. She “heard a noise and then saw smoke.” Yep, definitely something wrong there.

How To Be The Perfect Parent


There comes a time in every parent’s life where you ask “Where did I go wrong?”  It seems your child will always find a way to throw you for a loop, whether its by cheating in a game, smarting off, or the scary world of teenagers, where “finding yourself” means the more dangerous, the better.  We wonder what we should have done differently, or if we said something wrong that has messed them up for life.  We set these high hopes that our kids will be doctors and…

WHO Is Your Home?

Last night, I finally got around to watching the movie "Chocolat."  (I rank this right up there with Twilight on being a female seductive obsession and being completely lost on the male counterpart.  I loved it, and PapaGray fought to stay awake.  But I digress).  There was a scene that was so tiny, but resonated with me.  In it, Roux (Johnny Depp) is checking in on Vianne (Juliette Binoche) after his…

No, Really...I LOVE My Kids!

The other day PapaGray and I had the pleasure of going out on a date, just the two of us. Ahhhhhhhh, no children.  No one dropping food on the floor, getting food (or lord knows what) all over my clothes, talking loud enough to ensure that even the deaf will hear, dominating the conversation, walking way too close to the street, and generally being like a herd of cats you are trying to corral in the middle of a monsoon.…

What am I Investing In?

I just finished listening to another powerful book called "Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts and Becoming the Person You Want To Be" by Marshall Goldsmith.  I am loving my drive-time and listening to powerful audiobooks on all kinds of subjects.  

This one investigated the environmental and sociological…

Life with five kids five and under

Welcome Bronwyn Jane Barnett into the world just two weeks ago. You hear different things people say about going from one child to two or from two to three. "Oh, after three it's just another baby." How ignorant I was to say that. Now with five littles age five and under, all I can say is two or three is easy. If you're on the pace of our family (not necessarily recommended though we feel extremely blessed by healthy babies and uncomplicated pregnancies), going from four to five right after…

365 days and what have you done?

It's the 1 year anniversary of me getting fired from my job, 1 year of me trying to make a go at working for myself and 1 year of me asking for help in supporting my family. I wish I could say this last year has been one of the best for me, but then I'd be lying.

Every year at my review I'd try to have a list of accomplishments to show my supervisor that I was worthy of an increase in pay and responsibility. It was a way of making sure that my compensation was equal to the work I…

Dollars and Sense Decisions 3/3 - What's Next?


The Entrepreneur On Coffee podcast will be up in the next month or so (sneak peak below) in full swing on iTunes and Stitcher. This is a fun project and a way I can begin to give value and content that people want. Apparently "everyone" wants to open a coffee shop these days so here goes the only coffee podcast bringing this kind of content. This is also a shift in the use of my talents and I'm excited about where this can lead. Coffee is not a high margin situation, but…

Who Would Have Thought?

Five years ago I would never have thought homeschool was an option for us. In fact I was flat against taking on that responsibility because I believed the lie that I should leave the education of my children to the "experts". When our twins were of school age, we sent them to the school down the street which was pretty good. They started in a pre-K program and I volunteered myself into a position teaching music there. 

This was where it began. The discovery that I was not just a…

The Patience of Job

Let me brag about my wife for a little bit, she has the patience of Job.  Don't believe me, let's start with she married me a former sailor who works in IT who has PTSD and never dealt with it until recently and is trying to start his own company after getting fired 10 months ago.  Still don't believe me?  She is the youngest of 6 children from a Peruvian immigrant family, the only one born in the U.S., and is one of two who helps to take care of her mother who has dementia and is in the…

Are you an elephant tethered by a thin rope?

A father took his son to the circus and as they walked towards the big top they saw the elephants and they were being held by only a rope tied to their leg.  The son looked at his father and asked how such a piece of rope could hold a large elephant.

"Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller they use the same size rope to tie them and that age it's enough to hold them.  As they grow up, the elephants believe that they cannot break the rope so they never try to break…

“Is this what I’m supposed to be doing in 10 years?”

One of our callers asked a very interesting question - “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing in 10 years?”

As it turns out, that question, and ones similar to it, have been showing up a lot lately in her circle of friends.

She probably wasn't expecting one of the comments I made to her, early-on, in the call - that the unrest she and her girlfriends were sharing was…

What is Your Purpose and Plan?


Trying to figure out on your own what your purpose and plan is can be outright a struggle, long, outdrawn and expensive. I know because I have tried to figure things out on my own and it got me to a place of frustration, depression and DEBT. Eww….DEBT. No one likes the sound of that word. However, what I did learn in all of this was that placing God on the…
