2013 was...

It was the year I got my worst day out of the way quickly. It was the January 4th I lost my best dog, Homer. It was also the year I became a best-selling author (three times!) and one of those books was all about Homer, so it was especially meaningful.

It was the year of a great visit to Detroit (of all places!) for Metallica's 2nd Orion Music and More festival, where not only did I see my 32nd Metallica show, but also a secret performance of "Kill 'em All" under the name of Dehaan and I got to get my mitts on one of Jame's guitar while Lori sat behind Lars' drum kit. I also won tickets to an advance screening of their IMAX 3D movie, "Through The Never," which was the most amazing filmed concert experience ever!

It was the year I finally left corporate America, after threatening to do so for 90% of my career. Woohoo!

It was the year of certifications as I earned them in: Positive Psychology, Soul Entrainment, Akashic Records, Infinite Possibilities, Playing the Matrix, and a few others I'm sure I've forgotten about. It was the year of meeting Anita Moorjani, Mike Dooley, Andy Dooley and hundreds of other new best friends. It was also the year I was interview on

It was the year Lori and I had our first joint speaking engagement, our first experience teaching together, our first classes taught at home, and the first time she filled in for me to teach a class. It was also the first time we both interviewed for the same job and the first time I wanted someone else to get a job I interviewed for. It ended up being the year Lori got her dream job, being a life coach at a local hospital.

It was the year I maintained a yoga practice and got hooked on Body Combat classes. It was my first full calendar year of living the Virgin Diet (well, most of the time). It was the year of my first on-line, on-demand course, The Power of Gratitude, and also the first time I taught a webinar.

It was the year Sadie, the three-legged wonder dog, bounced into our lives. It was the year I worked on five feature films, but still have yet to be seen on a theater screen. It was another great year of friends, family, concerts, movies, books, classes, clients, fun, love and growth. Thank you for being a part of it. What more could I ask for?

2013 was my best year so far, and I've got an even better feeling about 2014. Bring it on!
