Why We Gather

It’s late at night. You’re watching a movie… Deep in the jungle, maybe 100 years ago, a clearing emerges. Tropical grasses sway in a warm breeze. Intense green blends with a glistening sun and you can hear the faint sound of scampering creatures off in the dense woods. But, the field remains free of any semblance of […]

Seriously, You Need This…

When was the last time you felt truly lit up?   When was the last time you felt surrounded by people who just GOT you, embraced you, loved and exalted you? When was the last time you stepped out of your daily grind, hit pause and stepped into a lush nature-meets-camp playground that served as […]

10 Things To Do When Your Audience Goes On Vacation

It happens every August… First year, it freaked me out. Second year, still. Third year, I knew the drill. Strange as it sounds, the interwebs tend to go on vacation from about August 15 to September 5th. At least the individual blog-reading interwebs. Yes, your traffic will drop.

Comeupins

I pulled up and waited patiently for the woman to get into her car. She’d be pulling out any moment now. Moments later, the SUV about to turn the corner some 50 feet up the road saw the same thing, and decided he had dibs. Zooming back and signaling as if he’d been there the […]

A Love Poem for Entrepreneurs

Tease me. Lure me. Consume me. Driven breathless into your arms. Why can’t I stop thinking of you. To awaken at night and feel you wrapped around me. Warm breath pouring across me. Tingling. Aroused. Please. I beg of you. I love you. But let me sleep. And yet, at daybreak. You linger. What joy. […]

Marketing Heresy: Own Your Crazy

Yoga, schmoga! There are a million great studios in NYC, so why would someone go to mine? That’s the question I asked when launching Sonic Yoga NYC back in November 2001. From the get-go, I knew we’d have to do things differently. We’d have to be different in a way that wasn’t just different to […]

Naked Truth Autoresponders

The other day, I got what I’d call a Tim Ferriss-style automatic reply (autoresponder) to an email letting me know that, in order to be more productive, the sender is now only checking email twice a day. That’s cool. I can respect people batching their time in the name of getting more done. But, it […]
