Belief Without Compassion

Something interesting went down yesterday… A major revelation by a public figure, Alex Jamieson, followed by a heated, sometimes respectful, other times vicious conversation. And it all went down through a combination of this week’s Good Life Project episode and my guest’s blog. Alex burst onto the public consciousness in 2004 as the co-creator and co-star […]

The Power of Sacred Self-Promises

Every Sunday, young Vernon Bush and his family would pile into the car and drive 150 miles to the church where his dad would preach. Like most churches of that time, there was a small gospel choir that Vernon dutifully blended into. But Vernon had a secret… He had a gift. He could sing. I […]

Don’t Just Build a Living, Build a Life: GLP Immersion 2013

In January, 2012, I had this crazy idea… I’d just released my 2011 Annual Report, a 40 page document that took people deeply into my life, my businesses, learnings and aspirations (my 2012 Annual Report is coming soon, btw).

Go Public With Your Bad Self?

You know that thing you’ve been saying you want to do but haven’t been doing because you’re not good enough to do it in public and you’re terrified of being judged? Yeah, that thing. Your art.

Entrepreneurship As A Practice

Most people look at entrepreneurship as a project. You start with an idea, then turn it into something real, build a business around it. And all is well with the world. But that’s the wrong approach.

Artists Aren’t Afraid Of Doing Things Badly

Back when I was teaching yoga, a new student wandered into my class and plunked her mat down in the front row. That’s not the unusual part. Within the first few minutes, it became clear that she wasn’t just new to me, she was new to the practice of yoga. Problem was, this was not […]

The Only Thing Harder Than BEING An Entrepreneur…

…is LIVING with one! So much is made of the challenge of taking an idea from your head, making it manifest in the world, then growing it into something real and substantial. A business. A movement. A body of work. A legacy. I’ve embraced this challenge many times, and will no doubt do it a […]

Crux Moves: Single Moments That Change Everything

In Uncertainty, I wrote about something called “crux moves.” These are defining moments in business and life where big questions are asked, big challenges arise and you need to make decisions and take action without anywhere near perfect information (which we all know is a fiction anyway). How you choose and what you do will […]

How One Woman Built a Feel Good Empire

I’m always talking to entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs about branding statements – what makes them different. Personal development author, columnist, speaker and creative savant, Karen Salmansohn, has a great one… “Self-help for people who wouldn’t be caught dead doing self-help.” Not only does this tell you what she does, it immediately polarizes a tribe and […]
