Month: February 2016
I’m going to make this a very short Motivational Monday post. Quit waiting. Quit waiting. There is no perfect time to start. There is no perfect reason to start. Whatever your dream or goal is, the time is today. The reason is because you want to!
Do you want to train in martial arts? Quit waiting. There is a way for you to do it. Trust me. There is a way! Don’t believe me, you are more than welcome to message/email me and I will personally talk to you about it! You want to get fit? Same thing. I talk to so many people who like to talk about my fighting career and say they always wanted to do martial arts, it just never happened. Same thing with fitness, couple that are friends of ours always talk about the shape we are in at our age. “We’d love to work out but…..” Blah blah, whatever reason. Start! Start today. Email me an we will talk.
It’s the same with building a business. You can talk forever but nothing will happen until you take action. Take the starter step today. Even if you don’t have a clue, talking to an expert about it is the first step. Take the first step. Reach out today. Take the Step. Already in motion but not sure how to progress? Talk to somebody. Take that action today. Right now. Need help in marketing, PR or social ads? Reach out. Love to help you. Start that conversation today and see where you can go. You have to make that first move though. Thinking about traveling? Love it. Travel all the time. Luxe and budget. Let’s talk. I have loads of connections.
If you need personal coaching and training, you’ve entered my world. Need ideas for marketing or promotion for your brand/product? Transcend Digital Media can help with that as well. Whether you need training or thoughts for the ring or help from our digital company, reach out today. Do it, and if you just need somebody to say let’s go then email me. Emailing me is free.

Let me just say that I and my family love Branson. I know that as a guy who does reviews of places like Wynn in Vegas that it doesn’t seem right. It is. I’ve been going there since my oldest child was a toddler. Actually before that. When I was young in the mid 70s we were through there staying at other places in the Ozarks. I will be doing multiple pieces on this place and showing the entire area over time. These pictures are actually of a very small part and taken while we were there for a dance event with our daughter. Yes my daughter who was a 2time national champ in sport karate also won numerous national titles in dance. Today she teaches and choreographs as well as goes to college. Enjoy this area and short piece and whet your appetite for an informative budget travel series coming soon.
The very cool and historic Scenic railroad. Shot from the walkway along the Hilton and Branson Convention center. The railroad and tourist part of that scene have been there long before Branson Landing and The Hilton there were built. The area and train are old. The hotel and mall are new. Perfect mix. Most of the next pictures are from this area as the convention center was where we were for dance. I’ll explain a bit about the area at the end. Very different than when we started going there regularly in the early 90s.
So this area of Branson Missouri is a mix. It’s both the oldest part of town and the area that the newest
And most modern hotels and restaurants have come. Still you can walk a block away and feel like you are a century back. Did I mention I love Branson? I travel the world and spend tons of time on places like Manhattan but I love Branson and Gatlinburg. Truly where I want to be!!!!! If you are a merchant in this area, contact us. I would rather promo your tiny motel than the big boys. Let’s go!!!!!!

This is another dish that you can mix the ingredients around to suit your personal taste or need, but it’s pretty dang perfect as described. Here I chop it up to make a sandwich, which works great for parties or prepped for a busy week. You can also toss it with vegetables or rice. Tastes great with any of them, and gets better in the sauce with a few days aging! The ease of prep and improvement with age makes it a great dish to make for a busy week of training in martial arts, transporting kids to their practices or building your social media marketing empire! By the way, let me repeat that Rum part. Rum!!!! Spiced Rum and garlic!
It is a simple dish to make and the ingredient list is pretty small. You’ve got to like that for something that tastes this great, as he makes you look like you trained in a pro kitchen! Flavor wise think of teriyaki but far more complex and spicy. A deeper flavor without that much work!
Boneless chicken breast: not quite 2lbs is what I used here. 3 people plus leftovers. Use about 2.5 when my older child and his fiance come over.
A spiced rum of some sort. It doesn’t have to be expensive. From Captain Morgan, to Appleton or Caliber which is inexpensive at Walmart !
Fresh ground black pepper
Some kind of Buffalo sauce or hot sauce ( not too hot for this dish)
Pour a few shots of the rum, then about two cups of red wine into a glass dish. Size depends on how much chicken you are cooking ( how many people ??!!). Coat the top of the liquid with the pepper. Coat the top of that with garlic powder. Repeat with season salt. Now repeat with cinnamon. A few pinches of brown sugar and you’re ready! Toss your chicken in and flip over a few times to fully cover.
Cook the dish at 400degrees for about forty minutes. Take the chicken out and chop up. Toss it back into the now thickened liquid and stir and toss so everything is covered. Turn the oven off but put did back in for about 5 minutes. You are ready to enjoy!!!!!
It is simple and delicious. Enjoy the flavor and impressing your friends by looking like someone who has trained in kitchens all over the world.
