Want to Grow Your Business? This is Where Your Focus Should Be. 26th Apr 2021

When people complain to me that they’re struggling to grow their business, they often launch into a rant about everything that’s not working in their life and business.   This guy is sick of dealing with a technician who is constantly late. That guy can only seem to move his low-profit products. Another business owner knows that at this rate, her kids will have to take out loans to pay for college.   In short, everyone can tell me what they don’t want. But when I ask what they do want?   Crickets.  ... Read more

5 Questions You Should Ask Before Creating Your Marketing Strategy 12th Apr 2021

So many business owners fall into the habit of slapping their logo on e... Read more

Do you remember the first time you laid eyes on a job description? Most likely, it was just another document in a folder full of guidelines, training materials, and instructions for punching your time card.  Or maybe the first job description you encountered was in some Indeed listing you skimmed to see if you had enough qualifications to apply for the position.

But the truth was, there wasn’t a big mental shift for me. Not at first. We think of these two things—the experience of surviving on a paycheck provided by some... Read more

Self-Discipline is Self-Commitment. And That Changes Everything. 13th Jan 2021
