Friday, January 1st, 2021

Can your passion, your purpose, and your profession be the same thing? Let’s chat Ikigai. For those of you who are new to the concept, Ikigai (pronounced ee-key-guy, or so says the interwebs) is a Japanese concept that means ‘A reason for being’, and the accompanying diagram presents an incredible amount of food for thought.

My Best Instagram Post Ever

Wednesday, December 9th, 2020

I put up a post on Instagram and while it didn’t receive any awards or anything, I personally believe it’s the best post I’ve ever done. If you follow me on the ‘Gram and already saw it, I’m going to graciously ask for another few moments of your attention before you close this email. If […]

A Better Way to Schedule Your Time

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

First off, HUGE props to you if you’re doing anything distance learning/back to school/kids on a new schedule related. You are far braver than me. I wanted to share something that came up in a book I’m reading. For those of you who’d rather hear about it than read about it, feel free to check […]

Coronavirus

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

So what’s been on my mind? Relentless pursuit of, and endless commitment to, your dreams. […]

Kobe’s untimely passing is clearly hitting people quite hard, and while I don’t want to come off like a robot that is devoid of feelings, I can’t tell you guys to show up authentically and then not do the same myself. So, here we go: Things are super fresh so it’s to be expected that […]

Leaving the Business of Convincing

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

We’re going to chat about something that’s made me infinitely happier, and hopefully, it’ll do the same for you — It’s time to leave the business of convincing. Do people change? Only if they want to, and even then I think it’s more of an evolution than a radical change. To that end, why the […]
