Running your own business is like a roller coaster ride

Intentionally trying to exceed expectations with five wonderful human beings.


Running your own business is like a roller coaster ride, but without the built in safety that OSHA requires theme park owners to adhere to.

There is no safety net being an entrepreneur.

Everyday your business is at risk.

Unscrupulous people.

People going through an unexpected hell and they are not themselves.

People making promises with their spirit, but unable to deliver with their work habits.

Far too many arm-chair quarterbacks in the world.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Where does a person go to see authenticity?



If you’re not in the business of self-help, it really looks like authenticity is real.

So many people are simply trying to put bread on the table – whatever it takes.

Great acting is alive and well.

The misfits, the odd balls, the loners, the antagonists – they all have two things in common.


And a vision.

Moving from surviving to thriving changes the way you approach your art.

Been there, done that, doing it still (only better), and will do it until death.


What did you expect?

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

Live like you mean it!
