Go (A Little) Crazy

by admin on October 10, 2016

Tweet   If you are trying to create a fun, fostering environment that will inspire your employees to creative brilliance, you have to go a little crazy. (Although running your own company will probably already have you well on the way). I have always gone out of my way to create bright, colorful workplaces and ...

Refuse to Participate in Recessions

by admin on September 26, 2016

Tweet STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! Stop complaining and stop making excuses. So what if the economy sucks? Yes, there is/was a recession. Yes, the housing market plummeted. I know. I get it. I read more news from multiple outlets than I probably should. As an entrepreneur and as a business coach, I don’t ...

A Vivid Vision Perfect Future

by admin on September 19, 2016

Tweet I’ve worked with a lot of young, ambitious entrepreneurs in my time as a business coach and mentor. They are a diverse group, from tech savvy Silicon Valley insiders to master sommeliers. They’ve wanted a lot of different things, from more press to a better corporate culture. But underneath it all, they’ve all really ...

Hall of Fame

by admin on September 12, 2016

Tweet When I mentor young entrepreneurs, I endeavor to give them a war chest of skills that will help them long into the future. One tool that I ensure each of them has is a Vivid Vision. I’ve talked about these invaluable documents a lot in other blog posts. They are one of my hallmarks. ...

This Could Get Intense, and That’s A Good Thing!

by admin on August 22, 2016

Tweet “What’s your biggest fault?” “Tell me about a time you disagreed with a supervisor” Please. With all due respect to the highly trained HR insiders out there, I think traditional, wishy-washy interviews suck. It’s my experience that sticking to the pre-approved, PC interview script means the interviewee only says what he or she thinks ...

Hire for Attitude, Train for Skill?

by admin on August 01, 2016

Tweet The old adage of, ‘hire for attitude, train for skill’ doesn’t work anymore. A good attitude can’t overcome a lack of skills, and when you’re growing at 100% revenue growth a year, you need the people that will get the job done right away. What should you do? I coach and mentor CEOs to ...

Allow Me To Toot My Own Horn

by admin on July 18, 2016

Tweet I am a very good judge of talent. That might sound a little boastful, but my track record backs it up. Dozens of my former hires are now senior executives at some seriously awesome companies while many others have gone on to start their own successful businesses. Now I wish I could sit here ...

Recession Tip: Get Noticed

by admin on July 11, 2016

Tweet The brilliant ad in a Jakarta shopping mall makes people look really creepy as fleas on a dog. While everyone is complaining and worrying about the economy, get out there by marketing and advertising.  Find fun ways to get noticed for free.  It drives me nuts when brands or people think they are ‘too ...

Putting It Out In the Universe

by admin on June 27, 2016

Tweet A lot of New Age books tout the power of putting ideas out into the universe. Once they’re out there, they say, you can expect them to come true. I’m a pretty practical guy. In fact, some of my friends might even think I’d scoff at fluffy mysticism like this. But here’s the thing; ...

Think Ahead (But Don’t Get Ahead of Yourself)

by admin on June 20, 2016

Tweet We’ve all been in job interviews and fielded the inevitable “Where do you see yourself in five years?” question. It’s a tough one to answer without appearing too ambitious or too complacent. But I think this question is flawed for a whole other reason. In our fast paced world, how on earth can you ...
