My Favorite Business/Entrepreneur Podcasts

image via

If you’re running a business, or thinking of starting one, you’re likely constantly looking for guidance. Whether it’s advice on how to get started or proven ways to enhance performance, there are loads of “business gurus” offering their help. Podcasts have become my favorite resource lately because many experts have started their own shows. Also, they’re efficient AF. I can listen on my run, while walking my dog, on my commute, or while I’m making breakfast in the morning. Here are the ones I’ve found most helpful and to-the-point lately: [Read more…]

A Birthday Camp Out in The Gorge!

My friend Abby wanted to celebrate her birthday by playing outside all day and sleeping under the stars. This is why we’re friends…

Four of the Sipinski family members decided to go somewhere at the last minute (which is how we usually roll). We decided on the Red River Gorge, which is about 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Louisville. If you’re a climber, this place is a MECCA. If you’re not a climber, it’s still pretty awesome. Tons of hiking trails, a lake to play in, new zip lines, high ropes courses, and a sky lift that takes you up to see the amazing views of the Gorge from above. [Read more…]

Happy Birthday, Fraser!

To the one I love the most. To the one who’s the BEST dad to his kids. To the one who’s always up for adventure. To the one who works harder than anybody I know. To the one who has to master everything he does… and does. To the one I can trust with anything. To the one who’s admired and respected by so many in our industry, and rightfully so. To the one I miss almost immediately when we’re apart. To the one I’m so excited and lucky to get to spend my life with:

Happy Birthday, Fraser! I love you! [Read more…]

Project “Not Buying Sh** in Plastic at the Grocery”

 

I’m cutting back on purchases that involve plastic, damn it! I love the planet, I hate that we’re so reliant on oil, and I hate that plastic items are taking over the freaking oceans and waterways.

After listening to Planet Money’s five part series on oil a few months ago (especially episode 4 – “How Oil Got Into Everything”), I decided I had to do better. I never realized how much oil is used in almost everything: shoes, phones, medicine, and one of the biggest – PLASTIC. We can bitch about oil pipelines in the U.S., oil companies drilling in our oceans, and oil spills on our land, but until we stop spending money on all the damn things that oil is used for, we’re not going to make any headway. We’ve gotta start somewhere, so I’m starting with plastic. [Read more…]

Life. Currently

It’s a big night. We leave for Hawaii for a family vacation in the morning. We live an hour away from the airport so we drove in to the city tonight. Our flight is at 6am (woof) and we have to be there to check in and check bags at 4:15, so the 3:30am wake up tomorrow morning is gonna be a rough one. It’s totally worth it though. I’m stoked to go to Hawaii, as I’ve never been to the big island before and am looking forward to sun on my skin for the next week. We’ve used our hotel points to book the first two nights, then we’re camping all around the island for the next four days, then using hotel points again for our final night (goodness knows we’ll all need showers by that point). All that being said, here’s what else is going on currently: [Read more…]

New Recipes in The Rotation (Kid Approved Too)

I’ve been experimenting with new recipes on Sundays (because it’s the most chill day of the week) to try new stuff and take my time. Here are few that I’ve tried lately that have made it into the regular rotation, with approval from Tristen and Robin. My bonus sons, ages 8 and 6, even gave this first one another two thumbs up the next day for lunch. Total score.

My Car Needs A Name!

I love my cars. They are more to me than just transportation. Lola, Abe, Mona, and Charli were all like best buds to me. If you’ve been around here for a while, you might remember when Charli, my ’08 Mazda, bit the dust last year on our road trip from San Diego to Canada. I wasn’t ready to replace her for a new (to me) car, but I had no choice.  Although every car I’ve owned had a name within the first week, I just couldn’t think of a name right away for my new Mazda. Nine months later… she still doesn’t have a name. That changes this week. [Read more…]

Kentucky in 2 Weeks!

I’ll be spending a few days in Louisville in a couple weeks! Excited to teach a TRX course, see my people, and hopefully score some of the warm weather they’ve been having. See y’all soon! Who wants to go play in the park(s) with me?!

How to Love Your New Town

IMG_1537

Maybe your university is way across the country. Maybe your job just relocated you to a new city. Maybe you’ve moved to a different town for a relationship, to help out family, or just because you needed a change. Whatever the reason, getting used to a new place and starting all over can be equal parts exciting and stressful. You may love it, but you may not. Since so much of our health is affected by our happiness and stress levels, it’s important that we love (or at least like) where we live.

Since high school, I’ve moved cities and started over 6 times. It’s rough starting over, but it’s always worked out. I’m compiling my  “best practices” just in case you’re in the same boat. In no particular order, here’s how I came to be content in each new place I’ve lived in:
