My Computer Broke/ Update

So I am suffering here in my office with computer issues.  I am telling you this so that you can understand why no new episodes are not coming out on a regular schedule.  It is what it is.  I will be posing throwback episodes until I have fixed these issues.

Thank you for understanding.

I feel I owe you an apology

an apologyOver the past few months my schedule has been getting harder to manage.  With my schedule filling up and responsibilities getting bigger, I am getting inconsistent with my posts.  This is not good for business.  Nor is this good for your trust that I am going to put out quality podcasts.  I aim to explain what is going on today in an apology.  This apology does not come with an “I’m sorry” but with the truth of what is going on and how I am managing it.

This is not an excuse but more of an explanation of what is happening to cause my inconsistencies.  I try to make sure that you have two new podcast episodes every week along with a weekend motivation.  With the set that goal at the first of the year if you remember.  I have fallen behind in my goal and I feel you deserve an apology.  My biggest hope is that you will be patient with my changing world.  With a list of projects and a changing lifestyle in front of me, I am adapting as quickly as possible.  You are getting a front row seat to this change.

A Look Back at 2016 – What happened in the world, nation, and in my life

look back at 2016Now that 2016 is drawing to an end, a Gentleman needs to jump at the opportunity to look over what has happened.  We have come through a really tough year with all of the riots and the election nonsense that was going on.  As a gentleman you should take the opportunity to look back and see what happened in your own life.  What went right, what went wrong, what you wanted to change, and what changed are all needed to be addressed.

Rather or not you feel like the election went the way that you wanted it to go, you should be optimistic about 2017.  At some point in time you should start thinking about how you want 2017 to be better than 2016.  Then make a plan and stick to it.  Use this next year as an opportunity to be a better you.

  • What happened in the United States this year

While I was Away

If you have been keeping up with the podcasts over the past while, you will have realized that I was away from the show for a week or so.  There is a reason why.  I will explain why here for your today in this catch up show.

Regular schedule starting Monday.

Remember to check out the SGP FORUM.  It is a free forum and a great way to get in contact with the audience and a great place to post questions about something that has stumped you.

Cheers!

Homesteading Update Feburary 2016

IMG_0646Every once in a while I like to do a homestead update.  The show today might just be the most important show I have done about homesteading before.  At the end I spend a little bit of time to explain WHY this matters.  That nagging question of why.  You might be surprised about how important this topic is for Gentlemen to hear.

If you have not heard the homesteading podcasts that I have done in the past, I would suggest going back and listening to them.  They are super easy to find, just click on the homesteading link and it will take you to the page.  I talk about everything related to my homestead being updated and developed.

I decided to do a little update every now and again.  As a matter of fact, I will be doing an update 2 times a year.  The idea is so that maybe I can start a little fire in your belly to start your own homestead, even on a quarter of an acre.  I have accomplished a lot so far and plan to continue to accomplish a lot throughout the year.  That is where you can learn about what I am doing and how to do it yourself!

What has happened in homesteading since last time

  • Breaking up the paddocks
  • New chickens added to the homestead
  • The new homesteading business
  • The raised bed project
  • Why homesteading is a topic for Gentlemen

A Farewell to 2015!

a farewell to 2015Today is the final show of 2015.  All but the Christmas special that will occur in a few days.  I wanted to sort of compare the two shows that I have done over my time spent doing podcasts.  The show that came before this one was called Understanding Pets Podcast.  It was horrible.  I had little direction and thus had very little following and listening.  In comparison of what has happened over the past year, I am super excited.  With all of the success of the show I cannot get over how much you guys have done.  I put the content out there and you guys like, share, and listen to it.  I really do appreciate everything that you all do for the show.  So this is a farewell to 2015 because I am not going to do another show until 2016.  A farewell to a lot of different things that I have put into place and a farewell to the anxiety that this show may not work out.

What have we done and where have we come in this farewell special

  • My old show, Understanding Pets Podcast
  • The differences between this show and that one
  • How much you guys really mean to me
  • What is to be expected in 2016
  • The show I did with Bob Mayne called Prepping For Your Pets

Remember that I am taking the last 2 weeks off of December from the podcast.  I will still have Email service, and I will be on the Facebook page.  I am just taking time away from the show.  The reason is because I need to do some reflection and figure out where I want the show to go next year.

Triannual Homestead Update – August 2015

IMG_0045I decided to do a little update every now and again.  As a matter of fact, I will be doing an update 3 times a year.  The idea is so that maybe I can start a little fire in your belly to start your own homestead, even on a quarter of an acre.  I have accomplished a lot so far and plan to continue to accomplish a lot throughout the year.  That is where you can learn about what I am doing and how to do it yourself!

Today I am going to cover:

  • Why a homestead update is necessary to a gentleman
  • What I wanted to accomplish last time
  • What I did on the homestead this past few months
  • What I want to do on the homestead for the next show in December
