‘Hustle’ – What Does It Really Mean?

At the beginning of one of my busy weeks of the year, I had a great day relaxing, spending time with family and a couple of errands. But it got me thinking about the word ‘hustle’. What does it really mean? I share my thoughts on it in my most recent video. Hope it’s helpful.

Taking the baby shopping (with some Primark chaos)

Since when did going into town to do some shopping become ‘a thing’ for us?! When we had a baby I guess… Hope you enjoy the latest video.

Dear Jasper… | A Letter from a dad to his newborn son.

I thought I would write a letter to my 1 month old newborn son Jasper – and decided to gather various bits of film and footage collected over the last 30 or so days and make it into a video-letter! As a new dad, I guess I wanted to make something that is for him to be able to look back on when he’s older, and something for us to be able to remember what he is like now!

Hope you enjoy it too.

What is the point of these vlogs?

In the most recent video, I try to take some time to share about what the purpose of the vlogs are. If projects you are involved in don’t have a particular purpose, you’re unlikely to be able to complete what you are attempting. So I wanted to work on writing out some thoughts on the purpose and reason I am making these videos.
As well as that, Heather and I are enjoy my final day on paternity leave on a field having a picnic, and even have a chance for a 3rd episode of mail-time!
Thank you to everybody who has given us kind words, cards, gifts, comments and congratulations following baby Jasper’s arrival. We feel so blessed by so many people!
