KISS Provides Inspiration for!

Being a big Kiss fan, i regularly keep up with Kiss's official site at Recently the site has featured interviews with all 4 current band members: Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer, and Eric Singer. 

Most recently my attention was caught first by comments by Gene Simmons on work ethic and how if you really enjoy your work, you never really need a day off. Gene has numerous projects going on and is a true success story. Then yesterday i read the interview with Paul Stanley and found this paragraph to be very true and it really made me hope i can apply this mentality to my own work here at 

"Well life is what you make it. In life we can either choose to be a victim and complain about our position or we change it. We can either complain about things that happened in the past or we can move on. I’m a big believer in you determining your life and that philosophy means that I don’t put boundaries or limitations on what I can do in my life, whether it’s professional or personal. So that’s the attitude that has always been part of KISS and that’s my attitude in life." -- Paul Stanley
