How a Man In His 40s Who’d Been Lazy His ENTIRE LIFE Discovered (In 40 Minutes) He Was Never, In Fact, Lazy at All…

In the past two weeks, I’ve been working 1:1 with an incredible, powerful Influencer (yes — Influencer with a capital “I” — odds are, you *absolutely* know this guy…). Despite all his incredible successes, his companies, and his connections, in our first conversation he confessed he was actually nervous about his future and his happiness […]

Most of Us Have it All Backwards

If we fear we’re a failure, we’ll find evidence of it. If we fear a spouse isn’t faithful, we’ll find evidence of it. If we think our business is going to fail, we’ll see evidence of it. And we’ll see/find evidence everywhere. Example: I know a fellow who had a 100% close rate on his […]

What I Ask INSTEAD OF “So, What Do You Do?”

Meeting new people becomes a far more enjoyable, much less daunting endeavor when you simply show up with deep curiosity and a smattering of questions that AREN’T… “So, what do you do?”. The variations of questions I like to sprinkle into my conversations when meeting someone for the first time are ones that, more often […]

9 Years of Massive Guilt Dissolved in 25 Minutes While Sitting on a Bed in a Dark Bedroom

A couple of months ago I attended a personal development event hosted at a private home in Denver. The event wrapped up, and people started leaving. I walked out into the living room and saw a beautiful young woman curled up into a ball, weeping uncontrollably in an overstuffed armchair. I walked over to her, […]

How To Have It All…Without Planning It In Advance.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE IT ALL PLANNED OUT, YOU’RE FUCKED. This seems to be an underlying — yet dominating — belief held by SO many people in business. “I don’t know HOW to grow my business to 7 figures…” “I’m not clear on where I’m going to be 5 years from now, so I’m frozen.” […]


Two weeks ago. A Tuesday. Just after 4 p.m. I’m stopped at a red light behind an old, red truck. I’m zoning out, not fully present. I scan the back of the truck in front of me as I hum along to whatever was playing on Spotify. And then out of nowhere (like, literally out […]

What To Do When People GHOST You

In the past 4 weeks I’ve observed my reactions to being ghosted (aka, when someone just disappears on you). Some of the ghosters included: A VERY well known social media guru who’s part of a small mastermind I’m in (trust me, you DEFINITELY know him) who confirmed twice he wanted to schedule time asap to […]

How LOTS of Viagra, Porn + Gambling Improved My Business (AKA How to Lose Pretty Much Everything You Built Over 13 Years in the Span of 72 Hours)

In 2015 I watched everything I’d poured into the marketing of my consulting agency get flushed down the toilet over the span of 3 business days. One day I was running a nationally-ranked agency that was in the top 5 Google results for a massive number of competitive search terms and that received a copious […]

The 3 Words That Help Me NOT Sound Like a Total Bitch

My style of correcting friends, family, loved ones, team members, and colleagues used to be a little… um, shall we say… forceful?blunt?harsh?not very tactful? I’m so straight-forward and to the point, I used to always simply provide the feedback I thought needed to be heard, and then I’d go along my way. “Fix the typos, […]
