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 […]

Face Your Fears.

“The best things in life are on the other side of your maximum fear.” – Will Smith

 Every so often, an incredible video comes along and changes the way you see your life. This is one of those videos.

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 […]

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 […]
