This week I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Rising Above Podcast with David Hess. David is a local guy that overcame a childhood of abuse and neglect suffered at the hands of his foster parents. He started this podcast as a way to share the stories of others that have overcame adversity to rise above.
It was a great conversation. We talk about my background at Liquid Web, the Year Of The Opposite, his history of abuse, how my ownership of Liquid Web was structured, the joys of running, and much more. I hope that you enjoy this podcast as much as I did.
This week I am happy to report that I achieved my target body weight goal and the lowest weight of my adult life, 173lbs! It was pretty cool because it was also at the end of a 10 mile run that I topped off with a 3 minute cold plunge. Check out this video.
Bonus Tip & Life Hack - The Best iPhone Feature Ever - Silence Unknown Callers
Are you sick of spam calls? I (used to) get at least 10 a day. Not anymore! You can Silence Unknown Callers. If the phone number isn’t in your address book the call doesn’t ring and it gets sent to voicemail. The call will still show up in your recent calls list. The caller doesn’t know any different. It’s amazing. It puts you in control of your phone again.
To turn it on, go to Settings > Phone, then > Silence Unknown Callers, and turn on the feature. Or go to Settings, pull down to access Search, type “Silence Unknown Callers” and turn it on that way.
Calls from unknown numbers are silenced and sent to your voicemail, and appear in your recent calls list.
Today’s newsletter is a short one because I really want to hear from you. I’m hoping that this will be a two way conversation. So please, even if you don’t want the bottle of sauce, reply to this email and let me know you’re out there. You can let me know what you like about the newsletter, your suggestions for improvement, what is going on in your life, or anything else that comes to mind.
I look forward to hearing from you!
