Want to be a Writer…

…then write. Advice I received during a podcast or a blog from Seth Godin. Really, it’s true for anything we do, or want to do. Now, that does not necessarily mean you will be a Pulitzer Prize writer, or even a best seller. But how are you going to be a writer if you don’t ever write?

Get started today.

Time to Bond

In Personal Development, relationships on April 22, 2018 at 9:53 pm

I love spending time with my kids. Today, my son and I played catch. There is something about playing catch with your son. An experience unlike any other. Teaching something so fundamental to the game of baseball. I find it to be a fascinating exercise in observing confidence in action.

Whether it is playing catch with a baseball with your son, kicking a soccer ball with your daughter, or shooting baskets with either; I will always cherish the memories created. Personally and scientifically.

Get out and get active with someone, especially your kids. You will grow from it just as much as they will.

One Man Wolfpack

Remember the scene in The Hangover when Allen claims to be a “one man wolfpack”? Sales and entrepreneurship is not much different. Yes it can be lonely, but it does not have to be.

I love working with new or inexperienced sales and marketers. There is a twinkle in their eyes and a burning desire in their hearts. But when that fire starts to flicker and that twinkle dims a little, it can get lonely. I try to be that person with an open ear for these young professionals. Not because I think that I am just that good, but rather because I have empathy for them. More times than not, they just need someone to voice their frustrations to. I’ve been in sales and marketing for almost 20 years and have been an entrepreneur for nearly 6 years. I find it helpful to have someone I’d like mind to talk to when times get tough, and if you do this long enough, you will see tough times.
