Most Entrepreneurs Don’t Do This…

Long hours… Long nights… You’ve put in the work… You’ve put in the time… Then why are you at the same place you were when you started, but with nothing else to show for it than bags under your eyes and a path of self-destruction in your wake? This is the typical story of the entrepreneur, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

What if life were easy?

I recently had a coaching call with a man in his late 30’s who was looking to make a dramatic change in his business life. He didn’t want to just change jobs, but he wanted to create a business that works around his ideal lifestyle. My sweet spot as a mentor. When I asked him to tell me his “superpower” he replied: “I’m a hard worker. That’s my best skill and attribute. “…

No, showing up is NOT half the battle.

We’ve all heard this phrase being passed back and forth to help motivate people and more commonly, it’s used to make us feel better. “We didn’t win, but hey, showing up is half the battle.” “I’m tired today, but I came anyway. Hey, showing up is half the battle.” No, it’s not! The battle hasn’t even begun. You just showed up. This drives me absolutely nuts. It’s insane to think that we’re going to grow or get better by merely showing up. If showing up is your battle, then…

The World Needs You

“I don’t want to disrupt the peace.” “I don’t want to ruffle any feathers.” “I’m going to stay in the middle and play it safe.” These are all ways of saying: “I’m going to play small and give my power to someone else and hope that it turns out ok.” Notice I said “ok” and not great. Because that’s really the hope here – that it turns out ok. Something you can live with. Not something that allows you to thrive. I had a conversation with an amazing…

Be. Do. Have.

My family and I recently decided to spend seven months in New England. For a man born and raised in Southern California, the change couldn’t be more drastic. We live by the beach, and although the sun is out and the views along the shore are incredible, the weather is in the low 40’s. For me, this is cold. Bone-chilling cold. As much as I want to blame the weather for my desire to stay inside where it’s warm and cozy, I see people of all ages out walking and running, enjoying the beauty…

Your Inner Superhero

We all have one. That version of ourselves that does the right thing at the right time, always has the perfect thing to say no matter what the situation, and oozes charisma like an active volcano oozes lava. We tend to imagine what it would be like to be that person. We imagine what our life would be like. We imagine what we’d feel like. We picture ourselves, head carried high, walking around our hometown, and everyone looking at us in admiration. Well, maybe that’s just me, but… We all have some…

You are where you are because of the choices you’ve made.

I am where I am today – good or bad… because of the choices I’ve made. That’s it. You are where you are because of the choices you’ve made. If you’re not happy with where you are, then it’s time to make some better choices. In business. In your health. In your mindset. In your relationships. Really, it’s that simple. I’m off for a run by the beach with my family. Instead, I could play around on…

Are you willing to pay the tax?

I’m not talking about your income tax or your business tax. We’re talking about the success tax. Look. Everyone wants success in their life. No one is sitting on the couch excited that they aren’t successful. They may claim that to their friends, but the truth is everyone wants success… yet very few are willing to pay the success tax. I heard a story from a successful entrepreneur who said that envisions an auditor, like an accountant, who checks the boxes to see if you qualify for success. Each box is a…

The Secret Is The Thermostat

The heater doesn’t kick in until it’s cold. At my house, the thermostat is set for 70. The temperature falls below that, then the heat kicks in. We like it that way in our home, and my wife and I are also conscious of the other thermostat in our minds. Our mindset can be like a thermostat – changing when we hit highs or lows in our thinking. A typical example of this is the entrepreneur who is doing well only to find themselves burning it all down subconsciously. Back against the wall, they fight to get back on top.

Narrow Minded

It’s incredible how narrow-minded I can be. I was reminded of this recently when I had a conversation with someone else. He was a business owner. His business was as a distributor for an MLM supplement company. He was “all in” and on cloud nine with the possibilities of his new venture. I asked who his ideal dream client was – someone in the fitness or health industry with a following, he responded after some thought. “Awesome. How much is that person worth to you?” I asked. “A good person is worth at least $10k per month to me and…
