Yeah...that's a whole lotta Lester. And that's why I like to spoil him.

Pet Artillery is the place to do just that! It's an online pet store with a wide variety of products to choose from. Dog and cat beds NFL and NCAA gear, cages, Aquariums and much more! So if you have a Lester in your life, spoil them with great products from this great company!

Interview with Remso W. Martinez of the Remso Republic Podcast

Today, I had the pleasure of interviewing Remso W. Martinez, the host of the Remso Republic podcast, one of the fastest growing libertarian podcasts online. Since 2015 he has been an activist, blogger, and campaign consultant advocating for freer markets and individual liberty. 

ME: What lead you to start your podcast?
REMSO: What we have in conservative and libertarian circles is a commentator complex, by that I mean we have a lot of people yelling the same thing but with no real insight or resume to back themselves up. My time in the political arena regarding activism, blogging, and campaigning gave me an insight into the unsavory world of politics that the media ignores. I was at a position in my life where I had the opportunity to connect to people in a way which would have a real impact on my listeners, from there the rest was history.

ME: What do you see as the most important issues facing Americans today?
REMSO: The largest issue facing the US is school choice. We segregate classes of people based off school district boundary lines, we place ridiculous restrictions on home schooling families, and the federal government looks down on private education and charter schools. The best way to solve the nation's challenges is to unlock the potential within the next generation, and school choice and educational freedom is the key.

ME: So you're a punk rocker? Who are some of your favorite bands? What do you listen to?
REMSO: I'm a huge Misfits fan, but Green Day is the soundtrack of my life.

ME: Anything else to add?
You can check out my website at and subscribe to my show on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher

Thank you so much, Remso!

My Notebook

The other night, I was going through my notebook (which is now about four years old, although some of its contents are from notebooks that were about a decade old.) It's amazing to see the different themes that emerge and how viewpoints change, yet everything still resonates. Case and point: I still love my neon green notebook.

Facebook Follow

Almost all of the authors at GenZ have Facebook Fan pages, and I have always encouraged it. But I have never had a fan page for myself. Why? Because of the Facebook follow feature. Facebook limits  the reach posts on fan pages unless you boost them, so I think it is better to just have my Facebook profile where people can follow for their updates. It's more personal that way, kind of like Instagram, anyway. Who's with me?

Young Digital Entrepreneurs

I love young digital entrepreneurs. They are our future. 

My friend, Jacob, is only 21 and has started a really cool new website to raise funds for Haiti, Ukraine and Liberia His slogan is "Help me, help others." The way it works, is you buy ad space on the site, and 80% goes to those charities. The other 20% goes towards his college education (he is 21 after all). How cool is that?

Solar Chargers

As you probably know, I'm a big fan of tech. I have been into the latest gizmos since I was a kid...I remember saving up for what seemed like forever when I was a kid for a Video Now player and then in high school, just to get an iPad. That hasn't changed much. I am connected all the time with my tech. That's why my biggest peeve is when it dies on me. I have anxiety over it dying too. Because it may say 30%, but you know that thing is a ticking time bomb. I never really let my battery drain lower than 54% for that reason...I have become a professional outlet hunter. 

And that's why I love so much. I don't have to hunt down the power outlets anymore. I just plug my devices into the solar charging power bank, and I am good to go. Cool, huh? And they clip right to my backpack! (You know how I feel about my backpacks! Haha)

So I found out an interesting factoid yesterday...the first few digits of my phone number spell out I read-0-OK. How appropriate. I've had this number since I was 16...I guess my phone just knows me well. Ahaha. 

Now speaking of reading, I have a great new book for you just in time for Christmas.  
It is a 250 page Christmas novel, for all ages called 'The Magic Christmas Tree.' Just go to and click on that first post to find it. I love this, because there are so many Christmas movies, but you never really see Christmas books.

By now you know what a big fan of the gig economy I am. I wrote a book about it and now do a lot of public speaking about how digital media now allows anyone to be an entrepreneur. But just when I think I know all that there is to know about digital entrepreneurship, I find something new, like YardYum. 

YardYum ( is an online platform that lets people rent garden plots from local homeowners, community gardens, farms, schools, businesses and even churches. It’s been called the “Airbnb of gardening” and people are signing up from cities all around the world. How cool is that? If you want to garden but don’t have your own space, or you’re a landowner with some spare space, check it out!

The 7 Questions of Creativity

Jeff Leisawitz’s 7 question interview with Morissa Schwartz

n-lanczos3How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?

Think of everything as part of the larger picture. I often ask myself, “Will I remember this in a year? Will it matter in a year?” That always puts everything into perspective; few challenges are ever as dire as they seem.


What have you learned from your successes/ failures?

You can make your own luck. 😉

My Girlfriend is a Vampire II

Vampires are cool. I’ll be the first to say that. Unfortunately, ever since “Twilight,” they’ve felt a tad overdone. However, R.J. Rogue's "Evanescence" impressed at the beginning of the year, and now Robert D. Jackson’s “My Girlfriend is A Vampire” give such a refreshing spin to the genre. Not to give anything too big away, but things are not what they seem. See in this book, that takes place in high school (one of my favorite settings), Larry Evans (an average guy) falls for Veronique Cartwright (a very ‘not average’ girl). 

The book is exciting and can be enjoyed by all ages. I enjoyed the flow and language. The plot was familiar, but still shocking and intriguing enough to keep me reading. I can’t wait to read the sequel (wink, wink, Mr. Jackson.)
