I’m thinking about becoming a fashion model

I spent nearly the entire day yesterday in downtown Atlanta getting professional photographs done. Makeup, hair, lighting, wardrobe – the whole shebang. Karen came with me and had some pictures done and loved the experience. Me? Not so much. I’d rather been selling something. So I guess becoming a world-famous fashion model is not in the cards for me. Anyway, …

The septic tank saga

There is a big-ass pile of dirt taller than me next to my home. It’s unsightly, and today our landscaping team is going to come over not to get rid of it but to figure out a plan about what to do with it. No, the dirt pile didn’t mysteriously appear while I was sleeping. We discovered that although we …

I knew this would happen

I’m reading a book titled, “No- The Only Negotiating System You Need For Work And Home” by Jim Camp. This book is out of print, so I had to order a used copy on Amazon. The dude who owned the book before me had the most bizarre highlighting method I have ever seen. Quite frankly, it’s annoying, but I knew …

I can’t believe I just paid for this for a dog

Okay, I admit it. I’m not a dog lover, but I inherited Ginger when I got married to Karen, who is a dog lover. Ginger is getting old, is having some aches and pains, and his limping around a bit.

Insight from a book I’m reading

I’m reading the book “Willpower Does Not Work” by Benjamin Hardy. Craig Ballantyne of Early To Rise fame sent it to me as a gift. On page 146 Hardy writes, “Most people have an avoidance orientation toward life. They aren’t acting according to their deepest desires. Instead, they are playing it safe. They’re calculating their moves to ensure they don’t look …

A mindset that will crush your dreams

I have a crazy packed schedule today so this is going to be brief and to the point but it is mega important. I received an email yesterday from a subscriber inquiring about my Inner Sanctum VIP program. She said she was in the holistic healing space, had invested in some marketing products, but none had worked because, in essence, she …

Here is a mistake we almost all make

Yesterday I had a consulting client and his team in town for a day, and we accomplished a ton including repositioning his business. What was interesting was when I made the book recommendation, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. My client had never heard of the book. At first, I couldn’t believe it, and then I realized that he was not …
