Why I’m the WORST salesman ever

I suck at selling. Heck, when I do a telephone strategy session with a client, I don’t even close over the phone. I send a follow-up email. I also tell my prospect that I want them to “think about it” before they decide to work with me. On top of all of that, if my prospect doesn’t respond to the …

Shhh! Do you hear that?

I bet you don’t hear it. Listen carefully. It’s… . . . SILENCE! Ahh, the sweet sounds of silence. ALL of the kids are gone for the week, so it’s just Karen and me. That rarely happens, but when it does, it’s a glorious thing. “Silence” is not easy to come by these days. Look around, and you’ll see that …

My newest obsession

Damn you, Netflix. Karen and I are addicted to a television series that came out years ago. We watch it almost every night, and I won’t even tell you how many episodes we binge-watched on Sunday. I’m talking about “Mad Men.” When it first came out, I watched the season one, and that was it. I wasn’t really into it, …

The King Of Meatballs Strikes Out

It was a tough weekend for your fearless leader. First, I blew chunks on the tennis court.  Granted, I don’t play regularly, but I was ridiculously bad. So frustrating. Then, last night, I made a big Italian dinner for my family and some guests. Usually, I rock it, especially with my meatballs. It is a documented fact that I make the …

A super quick, hot tip

Happy Friday, kemosabe. I’m taking today off so I can practice a new version of my mentalism show. We’re having guests over later tonight, and I’ll be performing for them as a type of dress rehearsal for a speaking gig I have coming up. (I typically do my show the night before I speak and sell.) Anyway, this is going …

My politically incorrect answer that you might hate

I get a lot of questions from my merry-band of followers but almost only take the time to answer ones from my Dave Dee Inner Sanctum VIPs. ‘Tis one of the many benefits. Here is a question that VIP Brian S. asked in our private VIP Facebook group. It was so good that I wanted to answer it here so …

[Pictures enclosed] I kid you not, “DOGA” is a real thing

I’m an avid yoga practitioner. Every day I hit the mat for at least 20-minutes. I love the way it makes my body and mind feel. But some folks are going overboard with this whole yoga thing. Earlier this year,  I reported that my crazy wife Karen was excited to do “goat yoga.” This is where you do yoga with …

Why this guru is dead wrong

One of my former students has gone on to become a highly-successful guru. The dude is the real deal and gets results for his customers. However, he was dead wrong in when he wrote in a Facebook book that people who are starting to create an online business should not focus on doing webinars but instead should focus on list …
