You Can't Knock The Hustle

As an entrepreneur, heck, as a human being, I have people who I look to for inspiration and motivation. We all do. I’m sure you’ve got a list of go-to Instagram handles that are the first thing you look at in the morning or the last you look at before bed. One of mine is Gary Vaynerchuk, or Gary Vee.

Oh, Lord Stanley, Lord Stanley! Bring me the Brandy!

Back-to-back, yinz. I mean, it’s crazy to think that I’m saying that again! The last time this happened, Lemieux and Jagr were rockin’ the best Pittsburgh hairstyle there ever was!

There’s been a lot of chatter about these damn catfish recently, so I figured it was a good time for you to “get woke” about what fish are lurking in our three rivers. (Did I use the “woke” word right?)

Land Of The Free, Because Of The Brave

Memorial Day – the start of summer, countless retail sales and a long weekend to enjoy with friends and family. Too often we get caught-up in these moments during this holiday weekend and forget the true meaning of Memorial Day – a day to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

Was drivin’ back from Myrtle last week and the channels kept goin’ in and aht and I happened to land on some political talk show. Now, I don’t like talkin’ politics, but I overheard them say something about Mt. Rushmore. This is something you may not know about me, but I am a “Modern Marvels” fanatic.

A heat wave struck da Burgh this week, and I gotta tell ya, I can smell the Myrtle Beach saltwater already! Like shark tooth necklaces inside of Waves, there’s thousands of yinzers that flood the shores of the Redneck Riviera every summer. “Why Myrtle Beach,” you ask?

Few restaurants around the country are synonymous with a city quite like Pittsburgh and Primanti Bros. “Yeah, somebody told me I have to try one of them… Per-MAHN-tee Brothers sandwiches.” If you’re a real yinzer, you’re quick to correct them. It’s pronounced “sammiches.”

The lawn chairs are out of the streets and the jean shorts are out of the crawl space. That can only mean one thing: the weather is warmer in the Burgh.
