GUEST BLOG for Dracaena Wines: Daddy needs to study... and blog about booze

"Starting from knowing ZERO about a topic with the goal of becoming a SPECIALIST on it within a year is a tall order. Especially when you're trying to juggle being a daddy, being a husband, working 40+ hours a week, getting sleep, and maintaining your own happiness. Also, being stubborn, I refused to put the blog on hold. I worked hard to get that blog going, so you can add cranking out articles and reviews to that list." - Daddy needs to study... and blog about booze

When Lori from Dracaena Wines was so cool to write a guest blog for TheWineStalker.net (Why being a winemaker is awesome- or not) I asked her to think about what she would like me to write about for her website to return the favor.

Lori is a lot like me in perfectionism and ambition professionally while being laid back personally. Knowing this, she asked me to write about my experience when I was studying for the Certified Specialist of Spirits test, all while having real responsibilities and writing a wine blog. So yes, this is another Society of Wine Educators related blog post. But this one underscores how obsessively crazy I can be.

"When I go for something, especially when it's a notch in the belt or letters after my name, I go at it hardcore. There is no way I'll allow myself to blow an opportunity that will benefit me for the rest of my life." - Daddy needs to study... and blog about booze
