The glamorization of sleep deprivation is deeply embedded in our culture. Everywhere you turn, sleep deprivation is celebrated, from "You snooze, you lose" to highly burned out people boasting, "I'll sleep when I'm dead."

Take Michelle Brooke-Marciniak, an All-American collegiate basketball player at the University of Tennessee who was once named the Final Four's MVP. She went on to play in the WNBA, and then brought her understanding of the link between sleep and performance to the world of business, co-founding the sleepwear and bedding company SHEEX in 2007. In answer to my questions, she shared her insights on how being an athlete has informed her experience as an entrepreneur.

It is near 5:00 a.m., and the sun has started its push up over the east side of Mt. Shasta, directly opposite the 13-person group of climbers on the southwest slope. The sun so obscured, the light is a blue gray, with clouds all around save for a miles-wide clearing.

On Wednesday, my hometown of Cleveland hosted a once-in-a-lifetime celebration for our beloved Cavaliers who, led by native son LeBron James, had just stunned the sports world and won the NBA championship.
I couldn't let too much more time pass before I gave my thoughts on the NBA Finals. The sound defensive play of the Cavs to compliment their outstanding work on the other side of the ball helped them pull off history against the Golden State Warriors.
