Hey Entrepreneur – You Need More Heads, Not More Hats

Posted in Blog, Unstoppable Business | 2 comments

Most entrepreneurs I work with fall toward the “Fluid and Responsive” end of the continuum, so the hats that they continually fight to make fit are scheduling, follow up, organization, replication, and delegation (which is both a mindset challenge and a natural traits challenge.)

What Do You Stand For – and Do You Have the Right to Defend It?

Posted in Blog, Unstoppable Business | 2 comments

When you, as an individual or an organization, put yourself in a position where you cannot afford to socially, contractually, legally, or ethically, control who you buy from and sell to, who you hire as a contractor or employee, who you partner with or otherwise associate with, you have abdicated your right and ability to control your reputation, your culture, and your brand.

Can Your Inner Artist Save Your Life (or at least your bacon?)

Posted in Blog, Unstoppable Business | 6 comments

  I’ve had a lot of days this last year when I felt a lot like this old typewriter. Worthless, rusty, archaic and unable to create anything at all. When you’re a writer, that sucks. Because writers are, by preference if not definition, artists. And artists are, supposedly anyway, creative by nature. So when my creative nature starts feeling like an old friend whose address I’ve gone and lost, I experience an identity crisis. I begin to question what I’m going to do, if I cannot create. Because every aspect of what I do – writing blogs and books, holding conversations with audiences,  group or individual coaching – requires that I be able to create. So I begin to question how I’m going to pay the bills, if I cannot create. I begin to question what I’m worth, if...

Why I Always Work on My Birthday

Posted in Blog, Perpetual Happiness, Unlimited Life, Unstoppable Business | 1 comment

Twenty-nine years ago today I inched my way down a steep and overgrown trail, over the guard rail and under low hanging branches, to reach a little bit of secluded shore line on Clinton Lake just outside of Lawrence, Kansas. Not that Clinton Lake doesn’t boast any number of public swimming beaches, it was just that I wanted to be alone.  I had with me a small bag of edible goodies, a thermos of water (bottled water being unheard of back then,) a notebook and pen and an over-sized towel. The most important items on that list were the notebook and pen. I spent the morning swimming and writing, dozing in the sunshine and writing, walking up and down my little stretch of muddy beach and writing, and thinking.  I did a lot of thinking. I had a lot...

I Ain’t Skeered Of Nothin’

Posted in Blog, Unlimited Life, Unstoppable Business | 2 comments

If that’s true, you don’t need to read this. But let’s get real. You’ve been afraid, haven’t you? It’s okay, you can admit it. Contrary to what sports enthusiasts and drill sergeants would have you believe, fear is nothing to be ashamed of. But you don’t have to let it limit your life. In fact, moving through fear to make the choices that best serve your life is a prerequisite for living an unlimited life. “Whatever you believe you fear owns your life.” That’s from one of my journals, and anytime I believe I am afraid of something, I make it a point to take my life back by challenging that belief. But there is one fear, or belief in fear, that’s been kicking me in the teeth – or more accurately in the mind – for most of...
