During this holiday season, I want you to spend some time and relax. Don’t think about work, politics, the economy . . . anything. What do I want you to do? Those things that make life special — spend time with friends and family, read a good book, watch a fun video, catch that movie you’ve […]
2016 — Banner year or Bummer year?
Not doing what you really want to be doing? Not getting the ‘right’ type of clients? Does your boss drive you up the wall?
Sometimes we get in a rut. Sometimes it’s a cavern. Here are some tips to help you get out of that rut and set the stage for an […]
A lot of people ask me — “Rich, how can you be so happy all the time?” “How do you get on your coaching calls at 6 AM with vigor?” “How do you do it?”
