Haters vs Criticism

by ironborn· February 24, 2017· in Uncategorized· 0 comments
I start every day now listening to one of my new favorite podcasts. The MFCEO project by Andy Frisella is the perfect combination of truth, harsh reality, and curse words which are a winning combination for the best morning ever in my book.   He recently had a podcast titled Haters vs Criticism.  In a nutshell, the theme is this; you’re really  not cool enough to have haters.  People don’t actually hate you.   You really don’t have anything to hate on at all.   In fact, you probably just have critics. Some critics offer positive criticism well others offer criticism that is slightly more misguided, but either way, it’s criticism nonetheless.     I’ll have to admit, this was a little hard to hear. I really thought I had haters. People who wanted to hate on what I was accomplishing, what I was doing, the approach I was taking.  People who want to just talk shit.   But, real talk, I’m really not that important. In the grand scheme of taking over the world, I’m just a measly footprint at this point.        Now, that’s not to say that forever I will be here, and at some point I […]

It’s a GIRL

This Valentine’s Day is extra special.     We’re having a girl!   To be very honest, I didn’t have my heart set on one gender or the other.  I didn’t want to be disappointed if it was a boy and I wanted a girl, or vice versa.   Also, I was really cool with not finding out at all.  The idea of being surprised enticed me.  But the hubby really wanted to know, for the ease of everything, so we decided to do the reveal.   The Box Tribe Games was a great opportunity to reveal.  We knew we would be surrounded by some of our closest friends and family and were excited to have them be a part of our exciting day.     A girl is what I secretly wanted.  I can’t wait to dress her up in all the adorable clothes and then deal with her sass when she’s old enough to form words.  If she’s cut from the same cloth as me, I have my work cut out for me.   But, regardless, we’ll love her for exactly who she is.   Enjoy this love day with yourself or your significant other and remember, it’s […]

Kindness.

by ironborn· February 03, 2017· in Uncategorized· 0 comments
In today’s world, full of violence, protests, and hatred, it is hard to find kindness.  But kindness really is all around us.   Today, an acquaintance through work, whom I’ve never met in person, sent me a card in the mail (pictured above) full of kind words and meaningful thoughts.     You see, I had offered advice and some of my time to her over the past few weeks, as I do many people.  She had questions about how to make her business work better and I offered my two cents on what we were doing here at Iron Legion.  I took time from my schedule to make time for her.     I want her to be successful and didn’t mind offering a helping hand.  I didn’t mind being kind.   As our conversations finished, I left the door open for future conversations and made sure she knew that I was available to her if she needed me.  I didn’t expect anything from her for my time.  I guess my only real thought was that, in return, she would make herself available if I ever needed her.   When I received the card from Allison today, I was […]
