You Can’t Cure Yourself With Food

  • by
I was listening to my friend Dan Schwarzhoff’s Podcast this morning (What Do Food, Sex, and Your Parents Have in Common?), which I highly recommend. He was speaking of how our resentments trace back to resenting our parents, and how this manifests in all kinds of issues, one of them being eating disorders.

Make Your Own News!

Today is another one of those days that was supposed to bring “big news.” I’ve seen a lot of those days. More often than not, the “big news” ends up being one more version of a “nothingburger.” And let’s just say that today’s news actually leads to some “big” news. Okay.

Enough already! And the customer rebelled. In this day and age, with so many choices for information and entertainment, it’s a huge mistake for any business to… Read the rest
