Working 60+ hour weeks, commuting in busy traffic and wearing a suit everyday isn’t the only way to do business.

Join me as we redefine what it means to build a business that serves YOU, your customers and the causes you're most passionate about.

It’s 4:22am as I begin writing this and I’m wide awake because my wife sent me a text from India and I haven’t been able to sleep since.

She’s had a breakthrough and I’d like to share how you can do the same if you are unclear about a new idea, project or business concept.

Picture this…

I’m on stage in front of about 160 people just after delivering my “More Money, More Impact” presentation.  It was well received and afterwards I was invited back to the stage by Michael Hyatt (who was co-hosting the event with his business partner Ken Davis).

That’s when something magical happened.

Twenty minutes later, my body began reacting to that moment.

I was literally speechless and tears began streaming down my face.

It was easily one of the most incredible moments of my life.

Thanks to Michael’s AMAZING wife Gail, that moment was captured on video (which you can see below along with my follow up thoughts).

Why do we buy the stuff we buy?

Understanding the reasons behind a purchase can really help you position what you have to offer.  If you know the “real” reason someone is purchasing from you, marketing your products is much easier and more effective.

As the old saying goes, people aren’t buying the drill, they’re really buying the hole in the wall.

So with that, here are the 7 most common reasons people buy…

What project of yours has been “in the works” for way too long?

Why haven’t you launched it yet?

For over two years my team and I have been working on one of our biggest projects to date and although it was “technically” ready about 8 months after we started, something held us (cough, cough, me) back from getting it out to the world.

Not anymore. It’s now ready for the world to see (and it’s about time!).

This took way longer than it should have so to save you from the same struggle, here are 5 steps I discovered to finally get over the “hump” and make forward progress.

Think about one company you love doing business with.

Now think about one you don’t.

What’s the difference?

Chances are, one made your life easier or better and the other somehow complicated things or frustrated you.

One major key to building a company that people love, is to make things easy for your customers. From the way you communicate to the way you sell, if you simplify things for the customer today, you will win customers over for years to come.

Below is a simple example of what I mean.  I’ve also included five areas every business owner can improve to get more business.

If you’ve ever had an idea (and weren’t at your computer), then you’ll love this new 3-step process I’ve created for capturing my ideas while on the go.

I decided to create this process after my drive to the airport.  While in my car I began listening to some podcasts and inevitably, I had some ideas.  The problem was, I didn’t have an easy way to capture them.

Sound familiar?

In a flash, three months were gone.

I look back and it’s easy to understand “where” the time went.

But the flip side is I feel like I lost myself a little bit.

You ever get that way?

For me, several BIG opportunities began flowing my way (which was exciting) and one project after another began to stack up.

I was energized about all of them and just put my nose to the grindstone in order to get these projects completed – hence the craziness of the last three months.

Financially, it was worth it.

However, there was a downside…

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a formula for getting the attention of Oprah? (or someone of a similar magnitude?)

What if I told you that there was?

In fact, I have a good friend who recently did just that!


A few weeks ago she was “in studio” being interviewed by Oprah during her hour long “Super Soul Sunday” show.

How did she do it?

That’s what I’m about to discuss…
