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 […]

Be A Time Management GOD.

I've been asking clients, colleagues, and friends what time management tips they use to make them get more done in the limited amount of time we all have. What I've heard is a mix of managing your time and procrastination.

Be Silly Today.

 “None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an afterthought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.” — Christopher Walken

Most are managers, entrepreneurs or in sales and they have the option of subtly putting things off and procrastinating, and often the urge not to work and surf online instead can be […]

Why We Work — A Labor Day Message.

What is Labor Day? On Wikipedia, it’s a day to honor the contributions we’ve made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. So let’s do that.

Every Labor Day, I take time out to review where I am in my career and all the reasons why I work. Why do I do this?

It gives me perspective. I look back at […]

Hey CEO, Are You Killing Yourself At Work?

You work hard. You come in early, stay late, and work over the weekends. Of course . . . you’re the CEO (or the President, CFO, CMO, CIO, you get the idea).

You constantly think about work, even in your sleep.

But you have the primo position, the unbelievable pay, the power to move mountains, and your […]

How To Eliminate Your Fear Of Hard Work.

I work with a broad spectrum of clients. All the way from the CEO to the college graduate, I help people overcome obstacles and better understand what's holding them back. One recurring area I encounter is the fear of 'more work'. What do I mean by 'more work'?
