We Fight!

In Blog by Jerad Hill0 Comments

Put two people in a room and eventually, they will fight about something. Each of us fight a different way and for different reasons. Some forms of fighting can even be healthy in a relationship. Some people get loud and make a scene while others are more subtle. My wife and I are definitely more subtle with our fighting. We don’t get in each other’s face, we say things in …

The Sliver Lining

In Blog by Jerad Hill2 Comments

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment when things are not going the way you would like them to. Problem areas are always more visible than what is actually working. We get more attached to the problems because they are at odds with what we intended. When we intend for something to go a certain way and the result is less than desirable, it doesn’t feel good. When …

Squirrel!

In Blog by Jerad Hill2 Comments

I am easily distracted. There have been times I self-diagnosed ADD. The problem is that we live in a world with no shortage of distractions. There is more than just something for everybody, there are dozens of somethings. To make it worse, I love technology. You and I both know that the tech world moves fast and there are always new bright/shiny things coming out every day. Adding to that, I …

Deep Netflix

In Blog by Jerad Hill0 Comments

One of the issues I have had with Netflix is the short list of categories for browsing movies. I like to browse categories in hopes of discovering a movie I have not seen. I am the same way when it comes to books on Amazon and audiobooks on Audible. I may not know what I am searching for until I see it. I am sure many of you are similar …

A little over eight years ago I was engaged to be married, didn’t have hardly any money in my bank account, and nothing in my savings account. It was at that point I realized that I needed …

My Kids Are My Startup

In Blog by Jerad Hill2 Comments

Just about every casual conversation I have with someone, the topic of work-life balance comes up. I have always felt this was kind of a weird way to refer to your life as a whole because to me work has always been a big part of my life. There have been chapters of my life where work consumed all of my time and there have also been a few times …

Son Buys First Apple TV Show

In Blog by Jerad Hill4 Comments

A few months back, I had a heart to heart with my son about how iTunes works on the Apple TV. This came after he had purchased a couple of $2.99 shows on the Apple TV without my permission. Apple does not make it easy to set parental controls on the Apple TV. If you enable parental controls, you have to use a four digit passcode for just about everything, …

I saved my son’s life

In Vlog by Jerad Hill0 Comments

We decided to take our three kids to the snow. It turned out to be a quick snow day as a blizzard came in and froze our faces. Liam’s last sled run almost took him off a 15-foot drop. I forget how fast sleds go with little kids on them. Liam flew right by me and I took off running as I quickly realized his sled was not stopping anytime …
