    Intermittent fasting is a hot topic these days, even though it's been around for centuries. Being such a health junkie, I had to look into the research to see why it is making so many headlines and if it is something I should be using as a standard practice in my quest for optimal health. While diving into the research, testing and experiencing the benefits, I learned that there are several reasons anyone who is looking to boost work performance should consider Intermittent Fasting.

    Why Are Companies Using Improv To Improve Communication?

    Posted by Rachel Graves on Sep 12, 2018 12:47:50 PM

    Communication on a personal level can be just as difficult to excel as communication on an organizational level. Funneling the static mess of thoughts in your head through multiple filters, aiming for a succinct meaningful message and the right body language, all while trying to make it pitch perfect can be like aiming for a moving dartboard...blind folded. For some time, I’d become frustrated at how exhausting it was for me.

    Posted by Ryan Hawk on Aug 27, 2018 9:59:05 AM

    Be sure to check out the full & original article HERE.

    College athletes have recently asked me "what do you wish you would have known (and done) while in college?" In order to be better prepared for those conversations, I realized I had a few regrets (primarily for not taking action when I had the chance). My goal was to make sure the people I met with knew this so perhaps they wouldn't make the same mistakes.
