Increase Your Productivity In 4 Steps With The Prison Workout

‘Hey Bro, how do I get that prison body?’ One of the most common questions I’d be asked by guys when I worked as a Personal Trainer. The body they’re talking about of course is that larger than life look some prisoners have when they go away for a long time. How they can be put away for a couple of years – and suddenly come out looking superhuman at the other end of the stretch.

How Not To Network

I spent the better part of an afternoon recently having a conversation with someone on my Southwest flight back home. Like many of us who travel frequently, I was bored, restless and looking for something to occupy my time. Keep in mind, the battery on my iPAD was dead and I was looking around aimlessly for some sort of intellectual stimulation. I introduced myself to the woman sitting one seat over from me who kept trying to make eye contact and initiate a conversation. I tried like the dickens to avoid it at first but I caved in and allowed her in my world. I am a sucker for persistence. I was also really, really bored! I soon found out just how eager she was […]
