Adult Summer Camp: It’s About the People

Can this really keep happening? That’s what my wife, Stephanie, and I wondered as the date neared for our third annual Camp Good Life Project (Camp GLP, for short). In a matter of days, hundreds of people would board planes, trains, buses and cars to descend upon our 130-acre oasis, 90-minutes from Manhattan. They’d come from […]

15 Years Later: Smoke, Tears and Kindness

We all express our thoughts, emotions, hopes and fears in different ways. Some through spoken or written word, some through clay or paint, others through song, dance or, even, exercise. Sometimes we keep these expressions to ourselves, other times we give them life and open our hearts to those who would listen. When I feel, […]

When Get Becomes a 4 Letter Word.

I’ve been asked the question in a wide array of contexts… How do I get people to buy my stuff? How do I get people to open my emails? How do I get people to join my community? How do I get people to sign up for my list? How do I get people to […]

Status, Seduction and Annihilation.

What if status and seduction weren’t entirely evil?   We’ve hit that time of year where rumors about the next iPhone are starting to bubble about.

The Content Delusion (or, why you still need to hustle)

There’s this unfortunate delusion that’s been sold in the world of entrepreneurship, especially in the online space…   The road to growth is paved with content. Write, film, record and produce killer content. Put it out there, and the world will rush to your doorstep. You don’t have to put your “self” out there anymore, […]

What If Nobody Was Looking?

We talk about self-awareness as this gorgeous thing. But, it has a dark side…   To know who we are, to be aware of our presence, gifts, desires, strengths, values, traits, tells and smells. All the yadda yadda yadda that makes us uniquely us. How others affect us, and we them. Knowing these is a good […]

Before You Blow Up Your Life, Do This.

There is a huge desire, once we sense we’re not doing the thing we’re here to do, to want to run from our current reality.   Even if it’s what is keeping a roof over our heads. We convince ourselves that the pain and disruption and financial upheaval of walking away is nothing like the […]
