My name is Andrew Wildes and I challenge and equip people to make the most of their lives.
In my view, making the most of life entails filling ones life with truly worthwhile moments and ensuring it counts for amazingly worthwhile things.
We all want this. In the real world however the demands of serious responsibility press on our time and many unpleasant events mar our paths. Reality makes the desire to maximize life seem impossible.
So, do we give up? No. This blog is a hub for the rebellion against everything that says “quit trying.” I would love if you would join me on this journey.
My Promise To You
My aim in writing is to challenge, equip and empower you to invest in things that will improve the quality and impact of your life (and that of your community).
If you are interested in tips, strategies and other relevant information to help you strike the necessary balance between the things you need to do and the things you want to do – then this blog is for you.
This Blog’s Anatomy
This blog is all about making the most of your…
Mind, Body, Heart, Soul, Work & Reach.
Seeking to make the most of every minute, every talent, every opportunity, every single day is NOT normal, common or easy. You will need encouragement, re-education and reassurance. That is why I have work consistently to fine tune these categories. They get to the core of who we are – ONE PERSON, with at least 5 major life areas.
Projects and Resources
There are a myriad of tips and tools available to practically help you. There are also events, projects and so forth across the world that you may find interesting. I hope to highlight some.
More About Me
If you care to know the person behind the pages…
I am a student.
I recently completed my LL.B at the University of the West Indies in Barbados. I am currently pursuing my Legal Education Certificate at the Norman Manley Law School in Jamaica.
I am a writer.
The bulk of my writing has been as a journalist with the Gleaner Company of Jamaica. By God’s grace, I have had an amazing journey in that field.
My two most memorable moments as a journalist thus far have been
- Covering the inauguration of United States President Barack Obama in Washington, January 2008 [See Link 1, Link 2, Link 3, Link 4, Link 5, Link 6 (The Jamaica Star), and
- Receiving the Prime Minister’s National Youth Award for Excellence in Journalism, December 2009 [Read].
You can check out the bulk of my work here at the Gleaner’s online archives.
I also write consistently at MoneyMax101.com.
I’m an entrepreneur.
Want to Maximize Your Words? I offer freelance writing services of all kind, including web copy, ghost writing, press releases, memoirs, ready-to-post blog posts. You name it, I write.
Along with Stephen Wildes from MoneyMax101.com, I also offer online content management services for serious professionals who would love to boost their influence online.
I hold a B.A. in Public Relations from the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communications (CARIMAC) at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.
Today, my aim is to be a more innovative creative-type, a more faithful Christian and just a greater source of enrichment and hope to my family, my friends, my colleagues and my tribe.
