My team has issued me a kinda nuts-o challenge. See, I’m constantly running around here ranting about the extra sales companies could be generating if they just fixed a couple of things on their eCommerce site. It makes me crazy… and apparently my ranting is making them crazy! So they told me to put my money where my mouth is (snarky little buggers… just one of the many reasons I love them). I can’t resist a challenge, so here’s the deal… I’ve set aside the next three weeks of my life to just talk to people about these issues....Read More
I know some of you have been wondering what happened to me. I had been really active with my blogging and social media… until a few months ago. Then I just vanished (“Look: magic!”… sorry, couldn’t resist). Here’s why…. I had this question rattling around in my head that just wouldn’t go away… and that I couldn’t seem to answer by myself. “Could the things I had been doing for the past 20 years work for anyone?” Up to that point I had been working exclusively with people who already labeled themselves “experts” in a certain field. They had...Read More
Several years ago one of our best friends almost died of a heart attack. After having 3 stents put in, the doctor told him he would have to lose a significant amount of weight if he wanted to live much longer. For most people, losing weight is a very complex process with lots of variable… foods you can and can’t eat, carbs, fat, sugars, gluten, exercise. Ugh! Our friend lost over 70 pounds and has kept it off for years. How? He chose to focus on only one input and one output. The output was his weight, which he...Read More
“Is it worth your time?” We hear versions of this phrase all the time. Well now you’ll be able to actually answer that question with a definitive answer! Need help? Here’s how… Pick a time frame. I suggest going with how often you get “paid.” If you’re an employee, that’s probably some number of weeks (1, 2 or 4). If you’re not on a regular work schedule (speakers, entertainers, etc.), go with however often you do your accounting. For those who have their income on auto-pilot, try choosing a single day (that’s the point, isn’t it?). Calculate your income....Read More
“When the student is ready, the teacher appears!” One of my primary goals in life, and the focus of all my work these days, is to connect eager students with expert teachers… and provide methods for Fair Energy Exchange (FEE – get it?). I’m not sure who to feel more sorry for: the people who are wasting precious time and energy scouring the web for free (and often incorrect, outdated or useless) information, or the people who have spent a lifetime mastering a subject and desperately want to pass on their wisdom… but haven’t figured out how to pay the...Read More
Which do you choose? I came across a discussion the other day in a Keynote Speaker’s group. The person who started the thread had spoken at an event that included an optional dinner / social mixer. He had been invited to the dinner, but not comped in. The question was: should he have paid the $50 and gone to the dinner anyway? Most of the answers were somewhere between “no” and “hell no.” That surprised me, so I asked a few of my speaker and performer friends what they would have done. While there were still a variety of...Read More
