Classroom Annie!

If you happen to follow me on Twitter you might have noticed lately that, uhh, I haven’t really been tweeting much to follow. I’ve been in class! Nate and I have recently made things official: our first, solo, real estate investment property. Eek! We’ve had plans for years to get into real estate, and number […]

What advantages are you leaving on the table? What business/relationships/money/success could those be turned into, if you decided to take action and make […]

One of the few television shows I catch on a regular basis is The Biggest Loser. Yeah yeah, laugh it up. IT’S GOOD.

While at the arch I ran into an interesting journal entry from Meriwether Lewis. Anything Lewis & […]

Hawaii (02_2010 - Annies Cam) 022

I swam with sea turtles, watched whales, experienced a full-fledged tsunami evacuation, snorkeled, boogie-boarded, hiked, and ate an ocean’s worth of fresh fish. But I didn’t send a single tweet, status update, or email. I returned last week from a stunning 10-day vacation to Hawaii with my family and, after catching up on a week-plus […]
