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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
