Just Do The Opposite.

“Pay more attention to what losers do wrong than to what winners do right.”

Really? Aren’t you supposed to focus on the stars and mimic each step they’ve taken to get where they are? How many self-help and business books are out there prognosticating the way to our success? Millions.

The truth: Most successful people don’t actually […]

How To Do The Hard Things In Life.

We all encounter ‘bad’ stuff that we have to do in our lives.

Make the hard phone call, visit the recalcitrant client, tell your vendor bad news. We all have that terrible interaction we all hate to do. You might have to ask for a late payment, a raise/promotion, or tell a client that a project […]

A Mastermind Group Is Critical To Your Success.

Let’s get right into it — You need to join/start a mastermind group. Here are the facts:

WHAT is a mastermind group?

Four to seven people in the trenches just like you, who work on their business/career, and who want to learn and grow. Each member offers their current resources, tactics 
and tools that work for them — 
plus they […]

I Found Out I Have PMR*.

I came upon a great quote from the Dalai Lama — 

“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live.”

How often do we feel disappointed/guilty about yesterday and anxious/fearful […]

The 5 Behaviors Of Successful People.

When I start with clients who are in-transition, we meet at my office in Stamford and I cover the Five Behaviors Of Successful People.

I do this to help them focus, get out of a mental ‘rut’, and move forward with enthusiasm, passion, and determination.

In retrospect, I actually cover these five areas with all of my […]

It’s Not Too Late To Turn Things Around.

One of my clients had a grand opening this weekend — and I made it a point to be there to help out with the crowds. It’s a state-of-the-art fitness complex — the first of it’s kind in Oxford — and by the size of the reception, it’s going to be a huge success.

As a […]

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 […]
