Jimmy Buffett & Skinny Buffett?

June 2023

For the last year, I’ve had a full-time passenger riding around on my golf cart helping me spread the message of Zenatude. When everyone kept asking what his name was…after a few days of contemplating, I chose Skinny Buffett.

I’m a Jimmy Buffett fan and have always admired how he brings millions of people together with his music giving them an outlet to kick back, celebrate life, and have fun. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with him in St. Barth’s several years ago and can attest that he is genuinely a nice guy who is exactly how he is on stage, happy and carefree.

As I reminded myself of Zenatude’s mission: “To spread more understanding, acceptance, and kindness… to spread more joy in the world,” I thought there could be no better name than Skinny Buffett… given that people kept commenting that I needed to feed my passenger, so skinny sounded appropriate😊

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending Jimmy Buffett’s concert here in San Diego (without Skinny B). When he started singing “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes,” I was super excited because this last year I’ve been singing along adding my own take, “Changes in Latitudes, Changes to Zenatude.”

And here’s the kicker! While writing this, I googled the meaning of this song and ironically, it’s spot on with the philosophy of Zenatude.

“It’s about embracing changes in life, letting go of the past and looking ahead to the future. Jimmy encourages the listener to have attitude changes in response to life changes, to not dwell in the bad, and instead enjoy the good…and laugh to maintain your sanity.”

Hello Zenatude!

Life can be challenging and full of obstacles and sometimes changing your environment and/or perception can create a new island of opportunities and possibilities.
