I'm hanging it up!

I’ve been contemplating shutting off all the social media stuff for about a month now, and I’m finally going to pull the trigger. I also, never thought that I was going to do this, but I’m also going to shut down my consulting business for a while, and likely for ever. So no more blogs, […]

Redefining direct sales

All right. I know what you’re thinking. I totally prepared for it with an awesome video of exactly what you thought the industry was. I hope you got a great laugh out of it. I certainly did. Here’s the thing, those stereotypical ideas about direct selling being a door to door business do have some […]

Redefining the roadmap to success

Here is the roadmap that has been traditionally handed down to all of us, myself included, about how to get ahead and have a successful career and build a beautiful life. It goes something like this: “Go to school, study hard, get good grades, so you can go to college. Get a degree then go […]

Redefine the Process

Migrated. Originally posted June 8, 2009 To say that the internet, and the Information Age have forever changed the landscape of business is the most obvious statement on the planet.

I think that McDonald’s, the most well known […]

Economics of Distribution

Migrated. Originally posted May 31, 2009 I think that this is by far one of my favorite topics in business to talk to people about. I think some of it has to do with how much my affiliate marketing business interacts with this model, but mostly because of the immense amounts of opportunity that are […]

Attitude

Migrated. Posted May 24, 2009 It is extremely sad when I talk to someone and they tell me that they can’t succeed at something or other because they don’t have the right talents or circumstances. I think too many people hide behind talent and circumstances because it a convenient excuse for their lack of courage […]

I am the Traveler

Migrated. Originally posted on May 23, 2009 The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews is the only book I’ve ever read twice in one day, and each time in a single sitting. This book has been absolutely enlightening for me. It has shown me a new perspective of who I am, and what I am doing. […]
