My company, Gocella, moved offices this week. The elevator wasn’t working. The deliveries did not show up. The internet didn’t work. When Internet doesn’t work you feel like you might never connect to anyone or anything ever again.

I felt lonely. I missed the old office. And I hate change and the fact that I had to move because no clients want to come to New Jersey.

Then I received a call from that someone special, asking me to take a break and meet for a bit outside, “wanna take a walk?” If this were about 12 months ago I would have said I can’t too busy and anxious about getting this move right.

HOWEVER, I VOWED TO MYSELF and her priorities have changed and my personal life and her come first.

Since I made this change, guess what? I have made more success in my life.

I have really been able to embrace the good stuff and enjoy moments I used to let slip by.

So I excused myself from the team and headed out to meet her, we walked a bit and then found a park to just sit in the grass and talk about our day, our weekend plans and just smile at each other.

That sounds like corny BS. But I vowed to myself to be corny…it’s honest.

On a tough day, an entrepreneur needs breaks. The more busy you think you are, the more breaks you need. At least for me this is true.

Gocella is not my first start up but it is the most important company I have ever started…I designed product with a great team that will enhance and innovate the future of direct marketing across mobile and social. The experience of the team behind Gocella is pretty crazy, so crazy I can’t believe the team we have from dev, to tech, to sales, to corporate. I am really blessed.

After a day of my brain being electrocuted, I met my friend Bugsy for a beer and he invited me to the Eminem concert for Gshock. Effin Eminem!

I turned it down and headed home.

Just having a beer with  Bugsy  was a bonus we have been friends for about 19 years. Eminem would’ve lasted one night. Bugsy is my friend for life.

This was truly one of those days to be grateful. You having zero doubts who real friends are. You know when someone really cares, you got to be productive…you stayed inspired and dedicated. If I can have that every day that’s worth a gazillion dollars.

On the drive home there was an accident. Ambulances and police and lights flashing everywhere. My usual 25 minutes was 90 minutes. I switched from Jay Z to classical and some Andrea Bocelli. Wall to wall traffic.

I felt like I was never going to move again.

What a great day.

About 3 months ago I started blogging more and it’s been some very personal information, issues and emotions for a few different reasons:

one upona time

Reason 1:

Ever since the age of 9 writing in any way of poetry, rap lyrics, stories and just a few lines helped me vent and keep things private in my marble notebooks (which I still have boxes of). But the world of blogging has taught me that release through writing is good for myself as well as others that can relate and need to know they are “not alone”

Reason 2:

I wanted people to know more about me because too many people assumed I was all business and the business personality was “me” well to a degree there is truth in that but work is like acting at times and it’s all a show. I felt blogging would give me the ability to introduce more about the real me and what makes me that me.

Reason 3:

I was told I needed a hobby…so I picked one but although still kind of work related. I don’t know if I have a personal “brand” or want one but I do enjoy connecting with people around the world, getting to tell people about my friends and their accomplishments and misfortunes as well as my own and I really am always impressed with the power of people coming together via the internet.

Music is a big inspiration for this blog and me:

I hope one day my blog becomes something people enjoy, get inspired by, create a happier and healthier outlook on life because that is what quite a few bloggers have done for me!

I don’t blog as much as professional bloggers or as well but I am learning. However I do send my “signals” out via

My last few posts although maybe a bit confusing and maybe too intimate, they have been increasing my blog reads dramatically and I really appreciate all of you who are reading and sharing.

I have some new posts coming soon that I hope will inspire others and help us all better learn from each other and our mistakes (I have a lot of life mistakes to write about), but also the most important things that I am grateful for and bringing awareness to things that I believe more support from people who care will change and make better.

GetBrice the blog is more about life and experience yes through my own and people around me but it’s more a place I can share the honesty of my life and life in general. I hope I am accomplishing that even just a little bit. It’s also a way to talk to some special people in my life that I care about and sometimes just don’t have the right words at  the right time.

And here are 12 reasons I found on why to write:
