Growing up in Ohio, with two Ohio State University graduates as parents, it’s no surprise I became an avid Ohio State football fan. My dad even had a Saturday morning ritual that he was kind enough to include my sister and I in (it really was an excuse to roughhouse). He played the fight song and some other recordings from The Best Damn Band in the Land and then we marched out to the front of the house to mount the OSU flag, with some couch throwing (us onto the couch, not us throwing couches), Hang on Sloopy pushing and other crazy games thrown into the mix.

If you don’t have a tribe in your life, whether it’s formal or informal, consider applying for Jonathan Field’s 2013 Good Life Project Immersion. This is a perfect opportunity for someone who has a business or a business idea and is looking to go out into the world and make a big difference. If you do decide to apply, let Jonathan know I referred you (full disclosure, because I’m not into spammy get-rich-quick-by- lying-to-other-people schemes, if you do get into the program, Jonathan has graciously offered a referral fee). If the program doesn’t sound like it’s right for you, start researching one that will work for you and your goals.
