I Feel Un-F*cking-Stoppable Today

I’ve noticed my mental stamina decreasing over the past few weeks. Maybe I’ve been getting burned out from working a lot. Maybe it’s my body telling me to take a break.

People Without Paid Positions At Panera

I go to Panera Bread a couple of times per week during lunch time to relax and get some work done. It’s also a great place to just kind of listen in to what’s happening in corporate america. There are an endless supply of business people that go there for lunch. It’s packed with suits …

Nintendo Must’ve Been Consulted By Earl Nightingale

Nintendo recently released a bunch of new “build-and-play” cardboard toys for their Nintendo Switch. These take me back to my childhood with k’nex and legos.

And it’s not just competition that I create with others, but with myself as well. I want to be the best bowler every game, every week. Here’s the …

Speak To Sell: A Lesson In Unapologetic Selling

“I’ve learned how to pick-pocket people, en masse, from a distance.” If the title of the book (Speak To Sell) didn’t alert you as to the topic, then that quote should certainly do the trick… Dan Kennedy wastes no time going in for the kill with this book. By that, I mean, Kennedy quickly let …
