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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I Need To Have A Serious Conversation With You . . .

It’s Friday — time to talk about the big things in life.

I’ve been coaching for 15+ years and I frequently recognize certain situations and problems clients run into time and time again. I thought I would document some today . . .

1. Stay in the present.

If you live in the future, you will get anxious — […]
