You Talk To Us 

We Talk To You 

A new lifestyle trend finally hit print this month.  It’s one that’s right on track with the RightSIZE UP movement’s timeline as we continue to make strides in putting quality of life first.  It’s called The Maker Movement.

While The Maker Movement is new to us right now, it’s the same one that swept the nation before. The first time was during the industrial age, at the turn of the century. The movement hit again (to a smaller extent)...

How to shop for a sofa:

Sofas are generally the largest and highest-ticket price in seating so decide up front:

How long you want it the sofa last? 

This is key when looking at that price tag.

Long term:

Heirloom $995 to $1,500 and up

Do you want to be able to reupholster the sofa at some future time? If so, then expect to pay more. A good well-made sofa that can be reupholstered must have a real wood frame versus composite fiberboard and should have fitted joints (or screwed and...

In the end, we all have our own threshold and tolerance about people, society, and who we bring into our lives. The upshot is to be wiser and more intentional about everything in our lives period... which very much includes who we let in. ---Not because they could harm us, but because with EVERY human we get close to, we naturally inherit their good and bad drama. We are all, to some degree empathic, so we can't help absorbing a part of each spirit we get close to. The questi...

While I’d been preaching the virtues of intentional living every day to everyone else, I discovered, when it came time to reinvent myself again, that I’d not been paying attention to my own accumulation.  Up until I created the TV show, I’d always lived a somewhat monastic lifestyle in the arts, being a firm believer that he who has less travels farthest.  As a result, I’d had an amazing life thus far.

Now, with two homes in LA, a production studio, a marketing company an...

While I’d never thought I did anything creative purely for money or worldly gain, I became acutely aware, over time,  just how much "success" had inadvertently motivated far more of my artistic ideas than I’d thought.  I’d always been a realist, and so proud that I was as versed in right brain matter as much as left brain stuff.  

I’d spent much time working with other artists who typically were naive regarding business and marketing of their ideas.  I’d tell them ov...

We all do it.  We postpone, put off and habitually ignore. We then rationalize procrastination as everything but what it really is...apathy. We tell ourselves that it's because we don't have time, when in truth, we're the ones who regulate where we'll spend our hours.  We tell ourselves that we don't know how, yet we're then ones who decide what we learn.  We tell ourselves that it's uncomfortable when we know the truth that not doing something about it could, in the end, mut...

In a world where almost everything is now on demand, you'd think our lives would be easier, fuller, more textured. Who would have believed that we could make a list of entertainment we wanted to watch, and it would be there, waiting for us? Imagine getting notices from people interested specifically in what we like, delivered right to our personal mailbox.  One would have never dreamed that new Apps would allow us to navigate the globe, simplify tasking, pay bills, book fligh...

You know how important I feel it is to never let life happen without intention, but to take charge and make it happen. Setting the groundwork for each new phases of one’s life is essential if the true desire is to continue to live a meaningful existence. By "meaningful" I mean one that continues to challenge and educate versus keeping us trapped in old comfort zones.

Today, we watch others reinvent all the time now. In a social media-driven world we are bombarded with personal...

I don’t have children, so this could seem like a ‘loaded gun’ topic for a non-parent. However, I do know, having talked to many kids (including in my own family), having done shows on the topic and having been an odd child myself, that getting out into the world is no longer that cut and dry, sink or swim proposition it once was. Fear is fear, and it breeds with either not enough information or way too much of it at the wrong time, manifesting in two entirely different ways.
