Are You In Group ‘A’ or ‘B’?

I run into so many people who complain how they can’t find a job, or get a promotion, or find new, great clients (Group ‘A’).

I also run into people who find a job quickly, get that promotion, and regularly find great clients (Group ‘B’).

What is the difference between Groups ‘A’ & ‘B’? 

Group ‘A’ has […]

Don’t Small Talk, Have Courageous Conversations.

Why do people hate networking events? Usually it’s full of people who are all talking small.

“How’s business?” ” There’s a lot of people here.” “How’s the food?” “That’s a great tie.”

Shoot me now. We all hate these events – executives, vendors, and business owners alike. Unfortunately, we’ve been told that we have to go to them […]

They’re Taking You For A Ride.

Today I’m going to rant. Sorry.

I started my practice 10 years ago. And every day, I receive multiple “Get Rich Quick” schemes in my inbox.

“Just do this (spend money) and gold coins will fall from the sky.” A large part of the digital marketing universe is leading on growing businesses with crazy incremental upsells that make me want to scream […]

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 […]

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.

Face it - we all procrastinate in one form or another. It might be at work. It might be at home. It might be at work and at home. During my 10 years of coaching executives, I've found that procrastination can be simplified into four 'obstacles':

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 […]
