I am looking at giant cacti y’all

Sitting under the hot blue dome of the California desert sky, I’m a bit stunned.


(who knew palm trees grew this big?? Not me)

What’s your dream? Make. It. Happen.

Today, Joe and I are taking a packed lunch, a LOT of water, and our stunned selves on a hike into Joshua Tree National Park.

Apparently there’s a big bowl of water after last week’s three-inch rain storm, and some interesting rocks.

I’m going in search of tortoises. THERE ARE TORTOISES LIVING HERE.

We’re building memories.

Experiencing mini adventures.

And being really fucking thankful that we are able to do this at all.

Listen up, and listen close: if there is something you really want to do – be it travel the world, buy your dream home, or build the biggest collection of obscure 70s prog-rock vinyl in the land – make the decision to do it, then make a plan to make it happen.

It really is that simple.

If you’re in the western world, you have more than enough resources.

You have more than enough skill and ability.

You have more than enough support.

Make. It. Happen.

My big dream was to help small business owners thrive, and to travel the world – and I came up with a way to make that happen.

Hit reply and tell me what your big dream is.
