What makes one business succeed, while others around it fail? There is no one thing. But a simple question asked by famed investor, Chris Sacca, to then new founder, Alex Blumberg, in an early episode of the Startup podcast reveals a critical, yet often overlooked trait. I want to invest in companies that have an […]
Everything great starts with a clear vision… That’s what we’re told from a young age. Define your endpoint. Make a concrete goal. Know where you’re going before you begin. See it, taste it, smell it, feel it, hear it. This is your vision. Without it, you end up going nowhere. You are doomed to […]
Entrepreneurship, starting anything from nothing, is brutally hard. “Conscious” entrepreneurship–building a business that doesn’t just serve a consumer need and generate profit, but also makes a bigger difference–is even harder.

What if the quest to be perpetually happy was actually making us miserable? Summer 2012. Two thousands miles west of New York City, nearly 9,000 feet above sea-level.

Busyness. It’s a problem. But, what if there was something deeper happening? An epic battle between intention and surrender that is both a source of profound pain, and an unlock key for life unbounded? And, along with that, an undiagnosed condition—Reactive Life Syndrome—that so many of us are living with, without even knowing it, or […]
“You learn more and more that everything exists at once with its opposite, so the contradictions of life are never-ending and somehow the mediation between these opposites is the game of life.” – Milton Glaser To be around acclaimed psychologist, behavioral economist, researcher and legendary Duke University professor, Dan Ariely, is to be in the […]
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 […]
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, […]
You Don't Need A Bribe To Join My Tribe...
No shiny object, whiz-bang report or scratch-n-sniff screen protector.
Just an invitation... Come and play. I'll be traveling the world, building ventures, writing, making art (badly), taking photos and doing my best to be a present dad and husband along the way.
Once or twice a week, you’ll get an update with highlights, images, insights and excerpts.
Go ahead, make it official...
