Airplane Rides Are Motivational Sessions

Posted by Michael Michelini | May 10 2012 | Comments (3)

Seriously, I don’t even bother trying to think I’ll sleep on these 14 hour flights. I am so excited and my mind is going a mile a minute. And I’ll be jet lagged anyway. So I use the flight to do a “brain dump” (thanks for that keyword Dustin!), cleaning up my notebook, writing blogs, […]

I am so freaking excited! Last week almost destroyed me…physically, emotionally….and on some nights financially…but I made some new connections, lost maybe one or two (can’t keep everyone happy) and have made some solid moves to ensure this year is a rock solid one!

USA is making me focus, and realize –> I belong in Asia, feeling…guilty

Posted by Michael Michelini | Oct 04 2011 | Comments (4)

Posted by Michael Michelini | Jun 29 2011 | Comments (1)

Really did my best to de-stress…but the emails and “wired” self that I am I couldn’t help but try to reply to urgent emails and monitor emails as they flowed in. Being an open, social media, blogger dude, I would openly tell people I’m trying to take a vacation. Most of the time people would […]
