What is one of your favorite quotes?

​So many to choose from. Here’s what been on my mind lately. “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.” -Wayne Gretzky

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

Tony Hsieh / Tim Ferris.

What is one item that you could not live without?

Exceptionally good coffee.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

There’s a lot more I’d like to learn but the Harmonium instrument has interested me lately. I own one, but have not yet been able to deeply dive in head first.

If you knew the world was ending in 2015, what would you do differently?
I’d drop everything and travel the world.
What is your favorite clean hack?
By changing your vacuum belt, you make your vacuum cleaner like brand new. Have you ever noticed how ineffective, and useless your vacuum cleaner is after sometimes only a month of use? The motor turns the belt, and the belt turns the vacuum’s roller. Over time, that belt (it’s like a rubber band) stretches and looses its tension. This affects your vacuum’s ability to pick up dirt and dust on your carpeting and floors. So if you notice your vacuum just doesn’t suck the way it should; Take your vacuum apart, notice any broken or missing parts. If it’s all clear, check your belt!
