The world of business is often perceived as a place for sleazy, manipulative sales tactics, especially online. But that same world is made up of everyday people—just like you and me.
There must be a better way to make a buck.
If you want to be different, and build a business of integrity, there is still a place for you online.
The key, I’ve discovered, is to continuously build trust—trust that comes from consistent generosity, more than anything else.
You’ve probably heard that people only use about 10 percent of their brains. While it turns out that’s actually not true, humans do have the mental capacity to accomplish more than we typically do.
I’ll admit, I’m a glutton for productivity. I’m always looking for more ways to accomplish more, yet take less time.
Wanna know the most overlooked productivity tool that I’ve found? It’s your very own subconscious, which is tirelessly working—whether you’re asleep or wide awake.
Blogging success requires consistency—showing up day after day. It’s hard work, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Some tools make blogging look easy by taking away hours worth of stress.

With consistency, my writing quality has increased, I’ve narrowed my focus, and I’ve been far more strategic with what I post on this blog.
Reality check: your keystrokes are finite. You only have so many left before your time is up, and you die. How do you communicate effectively, while also making good use of your time?
I used to struggle with email overload. After all, it’s easy to get bogged down in the seemingly endless notifications, newsletters, and requests.
A common solution today is to reply to emails with short, 1-2 sentence replies—or often stop replying at all.
Unfortunately, these solutions can lead to confusion and frustration for other people in your email threads.
In the world of online business, getting started can be the hardest part. That initial traction—or lack thereof—is what projects entrepreneurs along a path of success or failure.
I’d been blogging consistently for about a year when I was ready to create a new business.

Yup, you guessed it. That didn’t last long.
