Daddy’s Back!

Hey Kids!

Sorry that I had vanished without a trace for a time.  It was not my intention to leave you, my treasured readers lonely and afraid, (or something like that).  Things have been insane for me the past several weeks.  Suffice it to say up front, that I am alive and hanging in there no worse for the wear.    I’m still suffering through dancing with the stars.  I have no bloody idea how or why Nancy Grace and Chaz Bono are in the mix.  Gotta be some sort of Faustian pact with teh devil I suppose.

My marathon training got interrupted per doctors orders around week #9.  I’m pretty bummed about it because I was making great improvements.  This Friday I am having some mroe testing done, and hopefully all will be fine, and I can resume training.  I’m guessing I’ll have to back track a few weeks and build back up once again to where I was.  I assure you all that my training is merely postponed, and not cancelled(by God’s grace and mercy!).

I’ll keep you posted on that.

Also, I did have opportunity to begin posting some ‘serious’ articles on Helium.com

Not sure if you are familiar with that site, but, if you are so inclined, I strongly encourage you to check it out, and look for me….Jeff Grillo!  Woo Hoo!  ( you won’t see any woo hoo’s from me over theree!)

I am pretty much back.  I can’t promise daily articles right away…but, i can promise you that you wont go more than a couple days without a dose of my madness.  Oh…I should also have some good news to post pretty soon.  I have a new radio show that is going to be syndicated on a few internet radio sources.  As soon as I have URL’s and times, I’ll post here so you can check it out.  The show is pretty nutty and funny.  If you remotely enjoy my posts, you will absolutely love the radio ME!

Beauty Is Skin Deep…But UGLY Goes Straight to the Bone!

leave a comment »

Life is an amazing thing.  Perspective is also pretty amazing.  I love how you can have multiple people witness the same event, separate them, and then have them tell what happened.  Invariably, you will get as  many different stories as you have witnesses.  So, it doesn’t surprise me that I find myself having to blog about the topic of ‘ugly’ today.

There is a professor of economics at the University of Texas/Austin by the name of, Daniel Hemmermesh.  He wrote a book called, “Beauty Pays.”  He is advocating adding the classification of ‘ugly’ to affirmative action, putting it on par with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).  He maintains that ‘ugly’ is as immutable as a persons race, or disability, and therefore concessions ought to be made to protect the ugly.

Personally, I have no idea how to take this.  On the one hand, as a legally blind person I am appalled!  On the other hand, being that I have a number of years under my belt as a radio personality…and have been told I have a ‘face for radio’…I think, hmmm….more opportunity.  Thankfully, good sense is winning out here.  What the h eck?!  I can only hope that th is is some sort of ‘stunt’ aimed at getting attention to drive book sales for this guy.  I tend to think this is part of the problem with education in America today.  It also speaks loudly to why America is in such economic crisis.  We have guys like this clown teaching us economics!

Where does this end, I ask?  Are companies going to be required to hire ugly folk to act in their commercials?  Will strip club owners be forced to hire overweight and butt ugly women to twirl about those poles?  What’s next?  Affirmative action to cover the lazy?  The stupid?  Come on!

On behalf of blind, ugly, overweight, lazy butt dummies everywhere…I say, stop the madness!

New Site Launched!

leave a comment »

Hello!

I am excited about my new website launch.  It just hit the net.  As you may know if you have read all of my posts, that I am a published author, radio personality, media entrepreneur, and speaker.  Much of what I have done in my life has stemmed out of extreme struggle.  When I was 21 years old, I found myself battling 2 forms of malignant cancer.  I was born with a hereditary retinal degeneration that has left me legally blind today.  I’ve also had to overcome many other struggles which I detailed in my book, “Power In Perseverance.”

Win at Life! is a site I have put out there that is designed to help you, and encourage you through life’s most difficult challenges.  No matter what you face, physical or mental challenges, financial struggle, marital problems, social issues, you name it, you will find what you need at my new site.  I strongly encourage you to visit the site, and register for my FREE newsletter, and you will also get a link to listen to, or download my FREE 15 minute audio presentation on overcoming life’s toughest challenges.  Also, please let your friends know about this important site.  The newsletter comes out weekly, and is sent directly to your email inbox.  There are articles that will address issues that are important to you, and your success, and personal growth.  Articles are submitted from a variety of writers, and there will be weekly submissions from me as well.

I am putting this out there because I strongly believe that I have not endured my own challenges for nothing.  I am determined that others will benefit from the knowledge I have gained through overcoming some pretty difficult obstacles.  This is my way of giving back a little of what I have been given.

Check out this dynamic new site.  http://www.winatlife.us

Thank you!

Jeff Grillo Media Blog Kickoff!

with one comment

I’m excited about the launch of my new website, and wanted to add a blog, so here we are.

What to expect from me (Jeff Grillo) on this blog?

In a word…weirdness.

My plan is to use this space and time for my own little outlet to the world. Whatever is on my mind, will spill out here. It could be funny, random thoughts, or perhaps a rant on the latest political wranglings in Washington. You may see me go off on the latest news stories. Shoot, you could possibly even follow me as I write about the media business….go figure!

One thing for sure, you don’t want to miss a post. As we get going, and acquire subscribers, I may even do contests for blog subscribers only. But Jeff, what kind of prizes could you offer? Excellent question! You could win anything from a copy of my book, “Power In Perseverance,” to a FREE :30 second radio style commercial that you can use on your own website. So when people log on to your site, they immediately hear your professional radio spot. You may be able to win just about anything….you’ll just have to subscribe and follow closely.

Thanks for checking us out. Make sure you subscribe and help spread the word. You’ll be entertained, informed, and may even win something cool along the way.

Remember Jeff Grillo Media for all of your broadcast imaging & production needs. Visit us today!
