Some inspiration and hope for the week of 10/24/14

Quick news announcement. I’m super proud to announce that I landed a really exciting and great job with Akins Public Strategies. I’ll be doing mostly public relations work — you know, writing, researching, branding, etc.

And now for the good stuff!

Hope these inspire you!

Hey guys!

Hope everyone had a great week.

Things are looking up here on the job front, and my books have been selling phenomenally!!! Like, “I can’t believe it phenomenally.”

No, like, I’m saying they’re in the top half of Amazon’s Top 100 for Political Thrillers, with the likes of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and David Baldacci. (See here and here.)

So, life is great here. If you’re a regular commenter or member of Mitchell’s Militia, let me know how life is treating you, as well, down in the comments.

And below are my best tweets of the week! Hope they inform or inspire you some.

Keep the faith,

Best tweets of the week, 9/12/14

As my regular readers know, I’m always trying to combat the cynicism that mostly consumes our country (and world?).

And Twitter, for all its faults, provides a decent daily nourishment if you know where to look. And since most of you probably aren’t on Twitter, I thought I’d share some pretty good Tweets from the past week. (As well as just a few that may be newsworthy, but something you didn’t see.)

Hope they encourage you or make you think, as well!
