MOTM #245: Do you need to be told a story?

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

Holy sh*t, did I have a BLAST recording this one. I’m tempted to write this episode summary in the style of Billy Joel ala ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’ because I feel like I covered that many different topics, but I promise you they’re all related. Screw it, let’s do it. (That’s the only rhyme […]

MOTM #243: Borrowed Goals

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

Recently I’ve been getting bombarded by messaging about business growth and earning more money and scaling my shit. I’m not mad about it, but it did get me thinking about the effect that this incessant messaging can have on one’s thoughts and the goals that they subsequently make for themselves. I believe that many good […]

MOTM #242: Who Does a Sliding Scale Actually Help?

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

Last week I did an IG post about customers who say that your stuff is too expensive. It was received EXTREMELY well, and sparked some good questions and DMs. One of those was about how to price one’s services so as to not be prohibitive to those who could really benefit from the service but […]

MOTM #241: Consumption vs Creation

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

I’m ALL about learning and consuming content to improve one’s understanding, well-being, mindset, etc. BUT, it is important to recognize the difference between consumption and actually making progress towards one’s goals. An idea is only as good as the action that it spurs. Consuming content to help build a solid base is only truly helpful […]

MOTM #240: But How Long Will it Actually Take?

Thursday, September 10th, 2020

Yup, we’re talking about time management again. This week’s topic was suggested by a friend (you know who you are), and I’m all about it. Perhaps you listened to episode #233 and you’ve started batching your stuff, BUT, are you also being realistic with your expectations and allowing sufficient time for the tasks at hand? […]

MOTM #239: A “Better” Way to Schedule Your Time

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Thought about calling this episode “Profit First for Your Life” but realized that if you’ve never heard of Profit First then you’d be left scratching your head. If you do however know about the Profit First system, then hopefully you just got a lot more excited about this episode. What would happen if you scheduled […]

MOTM #238: Chasing Rabbits

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

One of my favorite quotes is “When you chase all the rabbits, you go home hungry.” Putting a little spin on it for this episode to discuss the fact that maybe you’re really good at chasing rabbits, but if it causes you to miss out on a buffalo, well, if this was Oregon Trail you […]

MOTM #237: Should You Outsource Your Sh*t?

Thursday, August 20th, 2020

I think folks are too quick to suggest outsourcing. There is ABSOLUTELY a time and a place, but if you just started your business yesterday, or even a few years ago, that time and place might not be here and now. Using this episode to give you three actionable steps to help you figure out […]

MOTM #236: Balance vs. Balancing

Thursday, August 13th, 2020

Last weekend I sent out an e-mail to my e-mail list discussing this exact topic, and it was so well received that I decided to make a Thursday shorty about it. Folks often like to say that life is about balance; I disagree. Real life is about making constant adjustments, of varying degrees, in order […]

MOTM #235: Asking Better Questions

Thursday, August 6th, 2020

“If you want better answers, ask better questions.” It’s come to be a mantra of mine, and that’s what we’re talking about this episode. A few nights ago I spent three hours logging the responses to a question that I asked on Instagram, and I ended that session very much feeling that if people asked […]
