It's been a very long time since I missed a send day, but yesterday I spent most of the day traveling and passed out as soon as I got home. So apologies for sending a day late.

This goes out to all the "imposters" out there. I thought I'd share some cool visuals I came across to help you become a better "imposter".
Going to keep this weeks intro sweet and short as these visuals tell a 1000 words. Full credit to Janis Ozolins for creating them.

There's a lot of crap on the internet, here's a gem or two.
The Art of the Underdog Story
Sylvester Stallone was so broke he sold his beloved dog for $50. It broke his heart. He hadn’t worked as an actor for months. His wife was pregnant. He couldn’t afford to pay the rent on their seedy apartment. As a last resort, Stallone sold his 2 year old dog, Butkus, outside a liquor store to a local character called little Jimmy. Read More

If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs. 
Nowadays especially it's nice to have things to read. New things, things from various sources and various voices, various minds talking about their thoughts and experiences, telling their stories, posting pictures and things that are relevant to them.
