AGL 032: The Engagement Epidemic

That last statement may seem odd […]

AGL 029: Some Things Are More Important Than Work

I’ve been noticeably absent from the podcast for the past couple of months, so where have I been? I planned to take 2-3 weeks off from the podcast and take my family on a much needed vacation to Turks and Caicos.  On our 3rd day of the trip I got the call that no son wants to get.  My dad has cancer.  At first the doctors were optimistic said they thought it was treatable so they scheduled scans and started chemo. I made it a point to spend as much time visiting him as I could. I decided to put the podcast […]
