It’s Only Failure If You Quit

I spent most of my life working alongside my father. He once said to me “It’s only failure if you quit.”

Michael Jordan was once quoted as saying: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot; and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

To be a successful entrepreneur you are going to have to learn to deal with failure. After all, if you are taking massive action in your business you will experience some failure.

Someone I Love Was Counting On Me

Ever feel guilty when you decide to take some time off?

Have you ever noticed that being present for what’s important to you (and even remembering what’s important to you) can be hard?

A few weeks ago my niece was visiting.

During her visit, she had an invitation to an event at the Facebook office in New York. In order to go, though, she needed a parent to come with her.

And she told me about it the day before the event.

What Pitbull Learned From Tony Robbins

If you have been following me for a while you probably know that I think Pitbull is not only a great musical artist but also an amazing entrepreneur and a brilliant marketer. I was just on YouTube and I found this video of him on Ryan Seacrest’s show. In the video you will find out what Pitbull learned from Tony Robbins.

There’s No Shame In Doing This (I Did It Too)

(In this week’s training video, you’re actually going to see a lot of the “real me” my students appreciate, meaning, I’m not sugar-coating anything. You’ll see me get on my soap box, I’ll gently swear, you’ll see my spiritual side and even witness my eyes well up in tears, all while I take a stand for you to stay out of fear as you build your business.)

OK, here goes. You’ve heard me say it before and I’ll say it again:

I Really Screwed Up

Good is good enough! Yes, I believe that with all my heart. However, it doesn’t make it sting any less when I screw things up, and this time I really screwed up. I seem to screw up on a pretty regular basis. I have been known to put “message” in a Facebook post when I am on my way to get a massage. I am really good at calling people by the wrong name. I even send out emails with links that don’t work or go to the wrong place.

How I Find Focus in a World of Distractions

How do you stay focused day to day?

If you don’t have systems, processes, and tools that create an environment for you to be fiercely focused, your time and the distractions that come up to fill that time will continue to control YOU.

In the past I’ve shared how I’ve added more discipline to my life – which I realized I desperately needed to do because the same things that had gotten me to one level were NOT going to get me to the next one.

Discipline is only part of the story.

What My Novel “Mirror Image” Can Teach You About Biz

I’m launching my second novel “Mirror Image” — it’s a psychological thriller/mystery/suspense (you can grab your copy here). And, to celebrate, I thought it would be interesting to share “the story behind the story” about how that novel got birthed.

It was a long, difficult, painful, messy birth — I share it all on my fiction blog.

It’s a story about almost getting the gold to losing it all to having everything finally come together.

Are You a Creative Entrepreneur Who Has No Time To Be Creative?

It happens to all of us.

Life. Business. Family. Endless to-do lists. Client emergencies. Family emergencies.

And then, you wake up one day and realize you haven’t done squat for months (or maybe even longer than you care to think about) to nurture your own creativity.
