everybody (fails)… sometimes

I just dated myself with that title… but for all my 90s kids, admit it. You sang that one too, right? It just seemed so RIGHT to choose that song because it’s so true. Everybody hurts sometimes. And everybody fails sometimes. And yet we all pretend like failure is something avoidable. Like we can simply…

2 phrases that could be holding you back

So last week I spent way too much time agonizing about sharing my story. In the end, I wrote it up and posted it… and got probably the most powerful reaction I’ve ever had to something I’ve written. If you missed it, you can check it out here. If you don’t have time to check…

the choices we make

This week I find myself in a situation that I never dreamed I’d be in, not in a million years. I’m in Cleveland, Ohio. I’m wrapping up my last day at an event called the Titans Master Class. And what it is, is a business/marketing training/mastermind hybrid. It’s put on by people who have decades…
