“I get angry and pull away”

“I get angry and pull away.” “Go talk to Doug,” said one of the other coaches. At this point, I was standing in front of a businessman, in his 30’s, who was filled with guilt and shame. You could see it on his face. He had a hard time telling me what was going on. “You see Doug, I’m so embarrassed saying this because my wife is the most amazing woman in the world. I love her so much… but……

Shipping off to war

Shipping off to war. I’ve never done it, but after talking to friends of mine that have, they’ve told me what I’ve suspected – they get their affairs in order before departing. They don’t know if they’re coming back or not. They take the time to tell each family member that they love them – not casually, but from the heart. They make sure to tie up any loose ends in their life and those that have businesses of their…

What do you stand for?

What do you stand for? As the saying goes, if you don’t stand for anything, then you’ll fall for everything. It’s 5:30 AM as I write this down… everyone in the house is asleep. I’m not in my home; I’m in someone else’s.

If I had a gun to your head and your life depended on getting to 48k by the end of January, what would you be doing differently?

“What’s the fastest and easiest way for us to get to our goal of 48k take-home each by January 31st?” Said another way… “If I had a gun to your head and your life depended on us getting to 48k by the end of January, what would we as a company be doing differently?” This was the question I posed to him. I waited for his response… “I don’t like this, Doug.,” he said with a tone of…

I’m afraid what others will think of me…

I’m afraid of failing… I’m afraid what others will think of me… I’m afraid what my wife will think of me… I’m afraid what my son will think of his father who didn’t do all he set out to do… What kind of example will I be to others if I fail? I’m afraid of failing… Most of us are, but we don’t talk about it because that would be taboo. Our fears can control our thoughts, our actions, and…

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?…

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”…

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…

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…
