At the end of a rainy week why not have a dance break. The goal for my class is for my students to be the most comfortable. The learning is happening but there is so much focus on data that the students don’t get to explore or see themselves in the learning. I. Love. Teaching especially when it involves spontaneous song and dance 💃🏽
My friend, @ieatfun (aka Mariya Alexander) put it in aptly when she said, “Living life is not for sissies.“
There is no way in the world you can “go for it“ and not face adversity. It’s part of life.
Did you know that the movie studios offered Sylvester Stallone $50,000 for his script Rocky under one condition. Somebody else play the lead role of Rocky?
Did you know Colonel Sanders started building his fried chicken empire at the young age of 65 years old? He lived in his car for two years, facing rejection after rejection, until someone finally agreed to give his recipe a try.
I could go on and on, but I think you get my point.
I remember Zig Ziglar sharing his philosophy about how he dealt with bad days. When he had a bad day he allotted himself a certain amount of time to be in a bad mood. But, once the time is expired, he no longer allowed himself to pout.
You’ve heard me say this before. Sometimes, your bad day is due to the conduct of someone else. You may be justified in your anger. So what! It doesn’t move the ball forward for you. At the end of the day, you, and you alone, decide if you’re going to move past your frustration, disappointment or anger.
Here I’m twisting knobs on my 3 newest modules the @keymagicinc Vinicius Elektronik Lizard Oscillator is in sequencer mode controlling an @intellijel Shapeshifter and the Intellijel Morgasmatron filter is picking up both voices of the #cylonixshapeshifter Shapeshifter signal after it goes through the Intellijel #Rainmaker . I use the Rainmaker in the 2nd Shapeshifter voice to make that background atmosphere.
Congratulations Anna & Adam on your new Home 🏡 •
I love that we have worked together to find multiple properties for the last 3-4 years. Thank you so much for being amazing long-term clients and trusting me to help negotiate that deal down $10k for you and have the seller cover closing costs 😉
You know there’s nothing I love more than helping wonderful people find incredible properties and negotiating the best deal possible
They bought a stunning 1880 Mansard Victorian! The high ceilings, ornate details, and modern updates make it a perfect blend for the modern buyer who enjoys a slice of history. When Anna found the skeleton keys above the door frame she was so excited 😆!
Overjoyed for you. As the Beatles said “were on our way home... were goin hooooooome”
I just want to share the tremendous power of having a “WHY” -
@coach_Marianne_curran has been my business coach for over 7 years. She’s inspired, mentored and guided me through some of the most challenging and most rewarding moments of my career and adult life. When her beloved husband of 36 years passed away in August, I felt heartbroken for her! 😓
How would she get through the difficult days, weeks, and months ahead? How does anyone process such a devastating loss? How could I help?
For those of you who know Coach Marianne, you’re probably not surprised that her stoic and sincere response was that I could best HELP HER, by HITTING MY GOALS for the year!
We had set a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) for this year - $2million in GCI closed - and I was already doubtful about achieving it since we only reached $1.2m last year.
When Jeff Curran passed away 3 months ago, we were only at $1.27m closed.
Then SHE became my “WHY” and a new fire burned in me. 🔥🔥🔥
It’s hard to believe, but with the Escrow we opened today... we just hit $2,000,751 closing before year end! 💥😊💃🏻
We are celebrating Coach Marianne! 🎉💕🎊 Her strength, her courage, and her undying support & leadership even in the face of such tragedy and loss. Jeff, she keeps making you proud!❤️
Although it is our BEST YEAR EVER, it’s not lost on me, that it is likely her most difficult year. And somehow she leveraged her loss to keep making others better! I LOVE that woman! ❤️
And I love @Tom ferry for putting her in my life.

I returned to UTM Radio in November, and of course I had bars for the people.
On this go round, my theme was more around reflection & integrity.
Given that my next mixtape and 4th project this year “Cost of Integrity” drops next week.
With those themes in mind, I took those concepts and flipped them different ways.
Analogies from wrestling (AJ Styles vs Christopher Daniels, Tetsuya Naito, Kazuchika Okada), Music (O.C., Chester Bennington, Foo Fighters, Big Tigger BET Basement, James Brown), Life, and everything in between.
But you know I still had to let it fly for a few, that’s the Philly in me.
Regardless of the topic I rap about, I MC it. “Cost of Integrity” is coming on Black Friday 11/23.
Stay tuned for more.
