Do you own a treadmill or do you use one at your local gym? Personally, I like to get outside and hike the hills around Los Angeles for exercise, but a lot of people either don’t have the time or are inhibited by their local weather to get outside this time of year to exercise.
Automating Yourself Out of Business
The 21st century has seen a lot of amazing developments. It’s crazy when you compare how things were years ago compared to now. When I was growing up, my friends and I used to trade cassette tapes and CDs to share music. Now you can just text a link to a friend or share it

Just Stop It. You’re Embarrassing Yourself.
I love stand-up comedy. And I really respect the comedians who excel at their craft. The timing, the wit, the memory – they have a skill set I do not possess, but it’s one that I truly admire.It’s not an easy job. Some comedians rise to the challenge and work hard to hone their skills.
Is 80 the New 40?
I read a news story this morning about an 86 year old gal named Bette who has been working as a stewardess for American Airlines for the past 65 years. And she has no plan on retiring. She loves her work and the people she serves love her right back. Some people might think she’s
I Became a Privileged Roman Citizen Yesterday
Have you ever visited the Colosseum in Rome? We are about a week into our 2 1/2 week vacation and yesterday we took a private tour of the Colosseum. Our tour guide was amazing. In fact, he had the same traits my Probate Fox students have: strategy, wisdom, and cleverness. Over the years working in

It’s no secret that America has a huge labor shortage. In fact, I saw a huge banner plastered on a Taco Bell down the street from my office that was offering $18 an hour to anyone willing to show up for work. It’s weird though, isn’t it? There was a labor shortage before the pandemic,
The World’s Oldest Pair of Levi Jeans
I read an article this morning about a 3,200 year old Chinese mummy that was found with pants on. Well, not just pants. It was a woman buried in a poncho, soft leather boots, a headband decorated with bronze discs and seashells, and the earliest known pair of jeans. I’m a bit of a nerd
