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 […]
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 […]
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). I shared a struggle that was very personal. I stepped into my own vulnerability on a […]
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. The one that’s so closely-aligned with the fiber of your being that it’d really hurt if people didn’t like […]
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. Because entrepreneurship, in the wild, doesn’t work that way. What really happens is you get an idea, it may […]
Ever look at someone who seems to be fearless, on top of the world, massively sccuessful, relentlessly confident and focused…and wonder how they got that way? It’s so easy to assume away their success. Oh, well THEY never had to struggle the way I do. THEY were born into luxury, money, influence. THEY never had […]
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 […]
…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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
