Online or brick-and-motor store? For women, men, kids, teens, tweens, millennials, mid-life crisis-ers? Amazon, Etsy, eBay? Udemy or Skillshare? There’s a ton of options, no wonder why we really get stuck on this point. It wasn’t until 2 random incidents happened, ironically within a 24 hour span, that changed the course of my own business. I was pow-wowing on the phone with my BFF, as our conversations always end up about business. As […]

How to Become an Expert at Anything

Our culture loves experts. Look at the YouTubers that make millions of dollars by filming themselves and posting the video to the Internet. Those YouTubers wouldn’t be making millions of dollars if it weren’t for their audience that values and respects their opinions and see them as experts in some sort of capacity. Yet many of those “YouTube gurus” didn’t even graduate college, they’re not prior millionaires, or have any other claim to fame or expertise outside of their YouTube channel. So why are they considered as “experts” or “household names” in their field? It’s because they have a large […]

1 Book That Will Change Your Life (and Business)

Yes, this is yet another rave for “4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss. If you haven’t read the 4-Hour Workweek, stop whatever other book you’re currently reading and pick up this one instead. It’s that important to your life and business. For those that are unfamiliar with the 4-Hour Workweek (4HWW), the main premise is that most of us simply overwork, and that our work can be condensed into a shorter period of time if we cut out distractions and unimportant tasks, and focus on what matters most.

Yikes, it’s so hype-y to say, but there’s really a strategy to get anything you want in life and business. It’s often an overlooked part of our day, yet it’s always the small things that get us, right? You just have to work long and hard for whatever you want. Period.

CEO’s work 7-days a week for 30 years. If I want to have nice hair all […]

Am I Actually Good at Anything?

Sometimes simple doesn’t always mean obvious. Life and business is simple if you know one key thing: your strength. After being at Ryan Moran’s Freedom Fast Lane Live event in Austin, Texas last winter, it was very clear what millionaires and billionaires had in common: Knowing your strength and what you’re good at is the foundation of every business. It’s so cliche to say that we often overlook this concept. Think of it as knowing the skills you are good at, as well as the skills you’re not so good at. Would you be more likely to start a business […]
