I can do it. That’s enough

Some inspiration for your Friday!

This man is 5’5 and has trained enough to be able to dunk a basketball. People told him it was impossible and he just simply didn’t listen.

Cool story for sports fans (or not)!

A great video for showing you just how the moments of your life are spent (with jelly beans no less 🙂

…..and proves that you don’t have as much time to follow your passions & loves as you might think. A lot of time is consumed already — and will continue to be.

Check it out folks — and hopefully your find some inspiration in the beans!

For anyone that’s ever wondered about the power of consumerism, here’s an article for you!

The Wall Street Journal recently ran an article about a pivot in tobacco farming. Some of these farmers have been raising tobacco as a crop in their families for centuries.

But, with declining cigarette sales, they’ve turned to another crop to sustain their profits.

What’s that crop?

Chickpeas!

Why?

Because Hummus is on the rise!!

That’s right! Hummus has lead to a 51% increase in chickpeas being harvested and tobacco famers have taken notice.

Here’s the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323798104578453174022015956.html

A true testament to American consumers making healthy decisions and pushing the supply market!
