You’re bored. You’re bored and you know it – you wouldn’t be here if you weren’t. Yes – that was definitely a line from The Notebook used strategically to get your attention... don't judge me.  Before we answer that simple, “what do you want” question – I have a story to share with you all. It goes something like this… At 28 years old, Scott Harrison had it all. A top nightclub promoter in New York City, his life was an endless cycle of drugs, booze, and women. But 10 years in, desperately unhappy and morally bankrupt, he asked himself,...

A few years ago, I celebrated my birthday on a yacht in San Diego. And yes, for those of you wondering, that was my failed attempt at a “flex” (I think that’s what the kids call it). I remember how cool I felt decked out in boat shoes, white shorts and a deep V (more commonly referred to as a “My Dads a lawyer” starter pack). Yeah, real cool. Though most of the day is a blur, there’s one conversation we had that has stuck with me to this day. We crossed under the Coronado Bridge and someone questioned how...

Yes. That was a cheesy spin-off to a campaign slogan from a guy who I still believe wears a toupee… And, since you're all wondering now... do I support the Donald? Let’s not toupee our way into politics… but, for the record, ABSOLUTELY not. I’m writing this article because I believe inner peace is the new success in the world we live in today. Cool, man... what does that even mean? Well, your grace, I’m glad you asked…  Inner peace (or peace of mind), by definition, is: “quiet and tranquility, freedom from disturbance… with enough knowledge and understanding mentally and spiritually...

Yes, the time has come. I am officially 365 days sober. If I’m being honest, I thought sobriety would be a fresh, clear-eyed beginning to a life full of never-ending joy and success. But, sometimes it feels more like a never-ending marathon, and I hate to run. There’s a reason you don’t see endless lines, velvet ropes, and clipboard holding hosts in front of AA meetings. I know, I know... this probably isn’t the inspiring, hopeful, message you were anticipating from a guy who just celebrated one year sober. We’ll get to that. But don’t let people fool you, sobriety...

Yes, I know, it's been a while. Don't worry, I wasn't in labor or anything. That would be awkward. Let's just skip the long-winded explanation as to why I haven't written and dive into the exciting news I have for you all. Sound good? K, thanks. As most of you know, a little over two years ago, I stood on the edge of my window deciding if I wanted to be alive anymore. I was 254 lbs, angry at the world, and hated everything about myself.  I ate terribly, drank religiously, and never exercised. Perfect combo, right? I would sweat walking upstairs, so the elevator and I became the best of friends....
