Recently, a Quoran asked “What’s it like running a pub?” Fortunately, I have some experience in this category. Here’s my reply: I ran bars for a few years back in my early 20s/drinking days. It had its upsides and its downsides. Upsides: If you’re behind the bar (which when you run a pub, you usually […]
Do you have trouble finding the time to get things done? I know I used to. But then I found out this cool, little hack to get more done. I go into detail with my latest daily wisdom video.
When I first started working on my business, I had trouble focusing. I’d wake up, do a little work, eat a sandwich, take a nap–before I knew it, my day was gone and I wasn’t being productive. That’s when I found The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. From the book’s description: “You […]
I finally got out of my head and made a video. I think the first video is quite “meta”! Check it out and let me know what you think. If you like, feel free to leave a comment or subscribe (or both, damn it).

When you’re like me and you’re reading 200+ books per year, and you’re targeting a niche like business/marketing, you soon find yourself running short of good titles pretty quick. So that’s why I adopted my “read what they read” rule. Often, […]
Kind of a crazy week last week, but I did manage to crush out a couple great titles. Make Your Bed by Admiral William McRaven This short book will easily climb to the ranks (no pun intended) of one of the better books I’ve read this year. Make Your Bed offers lessons from […]

First, understand the format of books. This is done through learning methods of communication, both written and […]
It all started with a purple truck. Back in 2015 I was selling cars, working for the man. By the way, I don’t recommend selling cars. It sucks. One day, we got a pretty sweet piece of inventory in: a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with only 15,000 miles. Purple. And it was a diesel, too, […]
