The Holy Grail of Content Marketing

There is so much NOISE in the world today. Everyone has a voice and has the freedom to say whatever they want to say. Granted, there are things that shouldn’t be said, but what I love about blogging and social media is that it allows people to be heard.

But are people going to actually hear or even listen what you have to say? Do you want to be that person who inspires...ignites...and creates change for the good? Or do you want to keep creating mediocre content that just gets lost in the shuffle? Think about it. There are probably tons of yottabytes (yes, that’s a real thing) of information produced each day. How will you get your business noticed?

Travel Inspiration: 4 Days in Vancouver, British Columbia

Oh, Canada. The land of Justin Bieber, the Toronto Raptors, and the country that may receive the biggest influx of refugees if Donald Trump becomes president. I've considered moving to this neutral land many times. I have relatives who live there, and besides, it's simply a beautiful country.

Art Inspiration: ArtWalk at Liberty Station, San Diego

One of my favorite yearly art events here in San Diego is ArtWalk that takes place at Liberty Station in Point Loma. With the beautiful San Diego Bay and ocean breeze as the backdrop, it's hard not to enjoy yourself.

What I love about attending ArtWalk is seeing how creative energy expresses itself through each of the artists. We all see the world in different ways and how we choose to share our visions is unique and so beautiful.

Joshua Tree Getaway For Inspiration

Joshua Tree Getaway

Every once in awhile you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, and a quick getaway is the ultimate cure.

Twice this year I chose Joshua Tree as my getaway. The first time was back in February and the second trip was just two weeks ago. I do recommend a visit when it’s not June, unless you enjoy 110 degree weather in the middle of the desert or just go outside at night.

What the heck is in the desert? I asked myself that same question, but I was initially inspired to visit from all the cool pics I saw on Instagram from a few people I follow. Joshua Tree looked so magical, especially at night. It is nature, so what’s not to like? Besides, it's only a 2 1/2 hour drive from San Diego, which makes it a nice, quick getaway.

A few years ago San Diego Magazine dubbed Joshua Tree as “The New Desert Getaway”, and now you can count me in on the bandwagon.
