New Year with New Challenges

So 2013 kicked off with a bang! We finally closed on our new home!!! Now we are in full fledged pack and fix up mode. My awesome wife is running point on the packing front while my awesome Dad is running point on a fair share of the fix up front.

So it is a New Year with new challenges both personally and professionally. Towards the end of 2012 I planned on posting my 2013 Goals post but things were so hectic I did not get around to it. Shame on me. This is not the post to flesh those out but I will soon.

Some challenges for 2013 on the personal front will be to successfully launch my online cooking show Eating 8020 with Dan Fontaine. My first show was postponed due to the limbo state we are in with the move. That said, my first show will be Tuesday, January 22nd at 9:00PM EST and can be seen here or over at

Eating 8020 will be an excellent outlet for me to tap into both my inner foodie and entertainer. We are partially renovating the kitchen in the new house and I can’t wait to have my new ” set ” completed.

To start the year that will be a one my primary challenges. hosting and putting on a quality program and build an audience.

Secondary challenge will be to help grow Truepro.Org which is a vendor free automotive community where candid discussion occur between automotive peers of all varieties. From Service, Sales, Internet, Office and everything in between, Truepro is the place to get real talk advice from other industry people when it comes to products, process and more.

Professionally, there too many challenges to be listed out here. I believe in the onward and upward approach and we need to keep ahead of our competition in the digital e-commerce space. Mobile SEM, Training, CRM 2.0, LBS, Social will certainly head up the challenges I will be faced with. I welcome challenge with open arms. It will keep me on my toes.

I look at this young 2013 and welcome these and the many more challenges I will face. I am thankful for the support and love of my family, the respect of my peers and connections I have made in the last 2 years via Google + and other Social mediums.
