New Beginnings

Hello friends.

It's been a really long time. I've needed the break. It feels like just about every part of my world has turned upside down since I was last writing consistently. I've missed the outlet...I've missed the No Excuses community...and I've missed the chance to...breathe.

Effective leadership is still my passion; however it's time to expand this platform to address other types of leadership in addition to our careers. 

What about our mental health?

What about our relationships?

What about our faith?

What about our passions outside of work that make such a dramatic impact in all facets of our lives?

The No Excuses philosophy applies to each of these areas just as effectively as it does to the workplace.

This is the path I feel called to explore. It may not resonate with you and that is okay. No Excuses has always been personal for me. You all have been incredibly kind to give it a read once in a while and offer your perspective and for that I am forever grateful.

So, here we go...new beginnings in a comfortable place. 

Thanks for being here.




  1. I'm excited about the new direction!

  2. Looking forward to some interesting reads!

  3. Welcome back Jay! If there is anything they pandemic has taught me, it’s that we are not in control per se, yet we are in control of ourselves and how we seek harmony.

  4. More than ever, the line is blurred for many. Careers and personal lives are overlapping minute by minute. I bet this will resonate with more people than not. Hope all is well.

  5. I’ve missed reading your blogs, glad you’re back.
