Full Circle with Kim Waltman

By | February 28, 2017

The adjective “interesting” can get tossed around to the point of becoming much like that big red exclamation point on an email. At times I too feel guilty about that, but I don’t feel guilty about using the word “interesting” to describe today’s topic and guest on the third edition of the Bettercast (that’s Betterman-speak… Read More »

Extroverts Are From Mars, Introverts Are From Venus

By | October 7, 2016

An introvert and an extrovert walk into a bar…wait…no one’s going to buy that. Here we go…an introvert and an extrovert walk into a…WalMart. Nope, too many people, harsh lighting, probably also some unpleasant smells. Okay, an introvert and an extrovert walk into an empty library after an electrical storm knocks out the power…crap, the… Read More »

Environment Matters – The Story of Genie

By | September 11, 2016

Perhaps you’ve heard of Genie before? I hadn’t until a few weeks ago, but the story fascinates me and resonates with a lot of beliefs I have about how life works on this planet. Though the name “Genie” is not her real name – it was merely used as a pseudonym to protect her identity… Read More »

Live Well and SHINE ON with Kim Garin

By | August 17, 2016

This whole Bert Betterman thing has been great for me…and hopefully at least semi-okay for readers too. It’s been good fun, good learning, and an opportunity for self-expression that’s really helped me remember who I am and develop the future of me along the way. Lately, though, I’ve discovered how much projects like this can… Read More »

Betterman’s Quest for the Lucid Dream

By | July 10, 2016

I had a dream as a teenager that is still crystal clear in my mind today. Suddenly I was falling from high above the ocean, utterly terrified of what was about to happen. Even my dream self, it seems, knew enough about water and surface tension to be afraid of falling into it at terminal velocity,… Read More »

Why Awkward Feels So…Awkward

By | March 17, 2016

Remember that time you told your buddy how hot a girl was only to turn around and find her standing right behind you? Remember when you amputated the wrong leg on that guy and then hospitals made it a thing to have the patient use a marker to write on the leg that’s supposed to… Read More »

My Schizophrenic Mind (And How It Might Help You Be Your Best Self)

By | March 11, 2016

A number of years ago, back when I was in my early twenties and starting my second “real world” job, I had the distinct pleasure of taking a personality profile test. Well, all of us in the company had this distinct pleasure actually; it was more like mandatory pleasure, which somewhat defeats the concept of… Read More »

Learning to Fish – My Evolving Beliefs on Health Strategies

By | December 24, 2015

As I begin, I should mentioned that I just noticed the significance of this “learning to fish” idea being used on a post dated December 24th, Christmas Eve. It wasn’t an intentional Christian reference, for good or bad, but it is a neat coincidence. Nevertheless, whatever one’s viewpoint on religion, I think we can all… Read More »
