How can I live up to my potential?

A few weeks ago I asked a dear friend of mine what question or idea was really eating at her. This is what she wrote to me: I want to know if I am capable of producing on the outside the level of greatness I have on the inside. I fear my stories will hold […]

Eat your cake already.

Today I spent two hours sitting on the phone, chatting with a teammate about the days to come. And as I write this, I’m in a state of bliss, driven to write and share this super important insight, so pardon the typos. You see, my newest project  S+M goes live to the entire public today. I’ll […]

Fear vs. Love: Which one drives you?

” Motivation is fire from within, only you can light it.” –Anonymous (tweetable) The biggest assassin of future prosperity isn’t lack of information.

  That’s the truth, isn’t it? We so often search for shortcuts, totally overtaken by the lure of easy, quick and the ever-elusive silver bullet. Women want their knight in shining armor and men want their chick who loves beer, sports and blow-jobs. Awesome. Am I saying these things don’t exist? No. Of course they […]

Follow your gut

The other day I had the pleasure of being interviewed for an upcoming book. The real win here was that I had the chance to tell part of my story of where I came from and how I got here. I was able to relive some of the harder moments on my journey and share […]
