What To Do When Life Hits You Square In The Face.

Ever have a REALLY bad day? Here's how to get up and get GOING.

5 Easy Steps To Improve Your Life.

There are so many books, seminars, and articles about how to motivate (yes I know, this is one too!). But I think they miss something big:

To be successful in business and life, you need to build a motivational foundation inside YOU.
1. FOCUS & MEDITATE 
Do you spend hours doing nothing? Do you play online games? Too […]

Start Thinking BIG Before You Get Small.

Most of the time we think small. It’s normal.

Why do we think small? We’re usually trying to closely track many of the details of our work.

The phone calls, the email follow-ups, the elements of the project, or cleaning up after other people.

The nature of our position makes us forget to see the ENTIRE forest because we […]

How To Charge More For Your Services — Part Two.

In my last post, You’re Not Charging Enough For Your Services, I gave an actual example how other companies have the chutzpah to charge 50 times the price for a service because they can (and do it). They were charging almost $400K to build a website that could easily be built for $8-10K. So you can say this […]

You’re Not Charging Enough For Your Services.

The other day, I came across an old contract when I worked at <confidential> from a famous consultancy called <confidential> in NYC. The contract was signed prior to my employment and after 2 months, I fired the consultancy based on their incompetence with the project. I was amazed with the short and cavalier agreement and […]

How To Eliminate Procrastination From Your Life.

Whoops! I’ve Been Doing It All Wrong.

“Your mind is not a warehouse, it’s a factory.”

So many people (me included), tend to use their mind as a warehouse. We keep arcane facts, appointments, commitments, to-do’s, worries, plans, and passions all whirling around in our heads.

We think we are more productive when we have the ability to instantly ‘touch’ each of these items if we […]

Never Listen To The ‘Experts’.

Just listened to one of my favorite podcasts this morning — How I Built This. They hosted Manoj Bhargava, the man who invented the 5-Hour Energy Drink. Manoj is a self-made man who started his career driving a $300 dump truck hauling away construction garbage. Now he’s a billionaire dedicated to donate 99% of his estate to help the […]

Play With The Big Boys & Girls.

We’ve got a big snowstorm here in Oxford, Connecticut. Thankfully, I work from my home office on Fridays — so I really don’t have to go anywhere — I just meander down to my first-floor home office and talk to my clients.

We only get better when we play tennis with better tennis players. One way is […]

Free Coaching Session. Yes, That’s Right.

Ever since I started my practice 15 years ago, I’ve always offered free coaching sessions to new prospects.

Why? Coaching isn’t something a typical person has encountered in their life. Also, coaching as a profession is very young – so most people don’t even know it exists. That’s why I sometimes get weird looks when I say I’m a […]
