As some of you may be aware, we have a sailing expedition scheduled for late 2020 or first quarter of 2021. We are also engaged in moving our landlocked office to Denver, Colorado.

Our sailing expedition operation is down to two cities, Vancouver, Canada or Seatle, Washington. I’m very excited about this expedition. Where we plan to study the Northern Passage on our first leg. Come back around to the Pacific and sail to Panama through the Canal and spend some time in Honduras, Argentina, and Brazil. We are reaching out to researchers around the world for research opportunities. To be announced as finalize our projects.
Each leg of the trip will part of our documentary film.
Nikon D850 X 2 plus assorted lens capabilities
4K Video Camera with full cinema capabilities
Scuba & Snorkel Gear
We’re also moving our offices to Denver, Colorado after the summer season is over. Okay, don’t laugh, we’re moving during the winter months. I can think of no better place to be landlocked than Denver. Very excited about our move. A beautiful city for creators.
Very ready to enjoy the Rocky Mountains once again. My excitement is heightened because I get to do it with my granddaughter.
If you are a researcher, please reach out we would love to discuss with you our plans. The beauty is we can stay wherever for extended periods. Complete the form, and I will happily call to discuss with you potential help:

Years and years of garbage, we’ve fed our brains, and for many of us our bodies. Let’s clean up both. We can all do better in mind, body, and spirit.
Schedule time for mind, body, and soul. Let’s learn how:
Let’s start with our body. Without stamina, you will peter out before you finish a full day. 4:00 AM lets begin with cardio. Give yourself one hour to take care of your body. Walk, ride a bike, treadmill, jumping jacks, just do it.
5:00 AM lets feed our body. Nourish the body temple with foods that truly feed your body. While we’re eating, listen to motivation, listen to something that fills your mind with knowledge. Find a Podcast, listen to a video, read while in the kitchen. Fill the mind and body with energy food.
6:00 AM, it’s time to feed the soul. Meditate, visualize, get on your knees and find God. Find your spiritual self. You have not because you ask not. Up your ask and God will up his give.
Now imagine where you will be Mind, Body, and soul after one year 365 hours focused on each of the three purposes to create the world-class you.
You can lay in bed, believing the bullshit story you’ve sold yourself most of your life. This is too hard; I can’t do it. Keep that opinion and your right. This is your wake-up call. Set the damn clock and take your life back, the enemy will convince you that you’re nothing, I’ve tried everything, If you bloody tried everything you would be living the life you want, not the bullshit life you accept.
Learn with me to manage your mind. Getting up at 4:00 AM, really you can’t get up that early, who the hell put that in your head, YOU. Get up.
The rest of the day focus your time with actionable tasks that produce a result. If working on anything that does not create a measurable outcome is a waste of time. Social media being your number one waste of time. Unless engagement with customers, fans, are the subject of your social media time. You’re wasting valuable time.
Let’s take a social media look. If your accounts are ways you engage customers or fans, then set daily times for this activity.
When you get to work, have a day filled with times that you perform set tasks. Doing the best, you can to stay on task during the day. If you get distracted, come back to where you left off.
What I use to track my day (this is no endorsement, it’s just what I choose to use). Two apps I have on my phone is Google® Tasks and Google® Calendar. The reason I use them is they’re free, and they work in unison. They also alert me when it’s time to change and move on. It also allows me to set up recurring activities to plan. Saves time.
Whatever calendar and task manager you choose to use. Use it. Even schedule downtime, take breaks to recharge.
If you track your day, focus time for activities and you don’t allow distractions for that time. If you don’t find twenty hours in your week that you gain. Something is wrong. When we honestly track our time, hold ourselves strictly accountable for time. You will find you have time in your day to do more!
Get your ass up or stay where you are. It’s your choice. Only you can begin this.
One of the coolest marketing shoots is that where your product is in action. Clients get to see the end use of the product or service you provide.
We tell stories with video and still photography. Tell real-world stories not some boorish commercial. Show customers how what you do will make a difference in what they do!
How cool would it be to have a video shoot with your product in action? We get out to an end user of a clients product. The shoot involves the product in action. Real world day-to-day use. The most powerful statement you can make.
No longer do you have to tell clients what you do. Show them!
