Over the course of 3 days, we recorded about 9-10 hours of very unique material. Our purpose wasn’t to create expert-style, how-to material. Nor […]

Overcoming Trust Issues

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

How easy is it for you to trust other people? Do you trust people easily? Or are you often suspicious of others’ motives? Do you trust life enough that you can quit your uninspired job as soon as you recognize it as such, and know that life will bring you something even better? Or do […]

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

In all the feedback I’ve received thus far about our Coaches Coming Together audio program in the works, the most common question I’m asked is: Why are there no women on your team?

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

When I don’t have strong clarity about what I want to experience next in my life, I like to explore something new.

Habits and the Long View

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

If you aren’t satisfied with your life today, yet you continue the same habits that got you here, you’ll still be dissatisfied next year, possibly even more so.
