8 Things I Know About You (And You Won’t Admit)

I like to consider myself somewhat of an expert in the field of human nature. I’m someone who can spend 10 minutes talking with a person and have a pretty good understanding of who they are, what they value, and what their life is like. This skill has served me well over the years and […]

Sorry, But Online Business Ain’t All Unicorns And Rainbows

This is a guest submission from Alden from Quit your shitty job. Tell your crappy boss you’re done and leave. You decided to do what you love instead. You plan to create a business out of your passion instead and also make the world a better place. There will be no more nine to […]

I’m Talking To You, Stupid

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately and expressed some of my feelings in my post last week, The Struggle Within. I’ve come to the realization that when I am not being completely true to who I am, then I am failing myself and all of you. It wasn’t an easy post to write […]

The Struggle Within

For years I have been telling you the same thing. That my goal is to help people who are currently in the grind I was in for 10 long years. And that’s feeling trapped in a job, relationship, or life you are unhappy with. And in order for me to be able to truly help […]

The Good Will Hunting Guide To Online Success

Good Will Hunting has been my favorite movie for years. I’ve probably watched it more than 20 times and know the lines inside out. Its inspired me many times and because I grew up not that far from where the movie takes place, I can really identify with it. I haven’t written this type of […]

Forget Have A Nice Day, Have A Nice NOW!

I’m writing this post at 10:04 pm sitting 10 feet from the ocean in Duck Beach North Carolina. It’s a moonless night and nothing but the sound of the waves can be heard. The temperature is perfect and there is a slight cool breeze blowing. The conditions are literally perfect and it’s so peaceful on […]

Get Ready To Wake The Fuck Up

As I walked through the doors to the bar, my head hung low from another painfully long day at the office, I glanced up to see an old friend sitting there with a big smile. The truth was that I really didn’t want to be out having a beer. All I really wanted was to […]

You Can Do It, Put Your Ass Into It

Yea, just like the Ice Cube song, you CAN do it if you put your ass into it. Although the song is definitely not about building a business or pursuing your passions (unless your passion is getting laid), it’s a great metaphor for going after what you love. Think YOU Have No Confidence? I graduated […]

You’re Full Of Shit (And I’m The Shit Remover)

So there you are, pretending to work like a good employee and counting down the hours until the end of the day. It’s only Tuesday morning and you’re already bored to tears. And as you think about the rest of the week and how you would like to be doing something else, anything else, you […]

Getting Pissed And Saying Fuck You To The Rules

I’m pissed. I went for a run today and in the midst of listening to “Titanium”, I got to thinking about my life. By all accounts, I have it all: A thriving personal training business, ample freelance writing work, total flexibility over my schedule, 2 incredible daughters, and a wonderful relationship with a highly supportive […]
