I have recently discussed the importance of having a routine, and setting goals for my children while we are all home fighting the spread of COVID-19. I am going to use this time to get more physically fit, do more strategic thinking, and read more books. The three books I plan to read this month are:
“Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds” by David Goggins. Obviously, we can all use some mindset help right now.
“Barrio America: How Latino Immigrants Saved the American City” by A. K. Sandoval-Strausz. I have been meaning to read this book for a while, and I think the timing might now be perfect. Latinos have helped our country pull out of past economic crises, and I’m pretty sure Latinos will do the same this time around.
“The Back Roads to March: The Unsung, Unheralded, and Unknown Heroes of a College Basketball Season” by John Feinstein. For those of us who love college basketball and are struggling without March Madness, this book should be a fun read.

Joe Rogan said the red wave that is coming will be like the elevator doors opening in the horror film The Shining.
We hear frequently how Latinos are not a monolithic community. In other words, we are not all the same. We come from different countries, have a variety of political views, and even eat different foods. I get all of that, but I also think focusing constantly on our differences versus our similarities undermines our political and economic power as a community...
The woman who gave me life and shaped me to be the person that I am passed away on March 5th. My mother Irma was a strong woman – a really strong woman. She was the matriarch of our family. I joke that the rest of us were just part of her supporting cast...
