Wow, I can't believe that it's been a year (truthfully a year was a bit over a month ago) already. Apologies for failing to get a post up closer to my actual year anniversary but better late then never I suppose.

Back in early September I decided I was going to try Bulletproof coffee after reading about it's benefits. I'll be honest, the thought of using butter in my coffee seemed pretty crazy but when I tried it I was blown away – it tasted fantastic and I was energized all morning long.
At first I started with 1 tablespoon of refined coconut oil with 1...
It has been about three months since I left PixelMEDIA to join Sitecore and I figured, with the 2014 Sitecore Symposium all wrapped up, that it was a perfect time to post about where I'm at with the goals I set back on June 27th.
