His three year old retreat, The Playlist Retreat, serves as a place where creatives can fall off the grid and into the world of living and breathing their creative super powers.

Rejection is the Silent Killer
Rejection is scientifically proven to be linked to feelings of physical pain. Those of us who do not handle rejection well often tend to bury the feelings associated in order to avoid that pain. Although this is ineffective, it is a continued habit for many.
Creating a plan of action to combat those moments can literally save your life. Rejection is one of the leading causes of depression. Some are not able to recover from this and end their lives. Don't wait until you've been backed into a corner to start preparing your home within for challenging times. Prepare now by finding things that create an atmosphere of gratitude in your life.
This episode speaks to that very thing. Take a listen, and join me as I prepare my house for storms. As we all know, eventually they will come, but we will do all we can to be prepared to love our way through them.
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue was slapped with a $13,369 fine by the NFL for invoking an infamous comedy sketch while celebrating a sack in a preseason win over the Minnesota Vikings.
Inspired by Hingle McCringleberry, a fictitious receiver made famous in a "Key & Peele" comedy sketch, Ngakoue gave three pelvic thrusts after making the sack and was hit with an excessive celebration penalty on the field.
In the comedy sketch, McCringleberry is penalized for doing the same thing, despite the rule book dictating that two pelvic thrusts was the maximum allowed.
Following the game, Ngakoue said he didn't realize he would draw a penalty or that it was considered an obscene gesture.
"I did not know that would be a penalty, but you know, it is what it is," said Ngakoue. "You learn from it, and you got to move forward."
Ngakoue, 23, is in the third year of a four-year, $3.48 million deal and will make $735,101 this season ... assuming he can keep his celebrations under control.
A third-round pick by the Jaguars in 2016, Ngakoue has 20 sacks, 10 forced fumbles and 53 tackles in 32 games (31 starts) as a pro.

Aerosmith is known for many things, but being supporters of Donald Trump is not one of them.
Recently, the groups Leader, Steven Tyler, had his lawyer send a “Cease & Desist” letter to the president for his use of the groups music during his rallies. Tyler fears that people will think that by trump using his music, he is in direct support of the president which is not the case.
This is actually the second time the group has had to have their music removed from Trump. The first time was on his campaign trail when the song “Dream On” was used to pump up the crowd as he entered the stage. The performance rights were revoked as an initial step during that time. However, since that did not deter trump from continuing to use other songs from the band, the “Cease & Desist” was put in motion and delivered.
Tyler, among many other celebrities, has made a hard stance in opposition to the current president. This sends a clear message, and stands out as an American citizen speaking up for their thoughts on what’s right for our nation.
