I have heard this kind of story so many times. Aspiring entrepreneurs REALLY hate their job, have an intense desire to make a change in their life and start their own business but they are discouraged by “well meaning” family members or friends. If your relationship with someone is being threatened because you have the […]

As with any personal development discussion, we have discussed many concepts and ideas that will change your habits and ultimately your behavior. None of these changes will be long last without persistence and perseverance. From Day 7 of our 7 Day Brainwash program, Brad and I share some of our thoughts on how to build […]
The money discussion can always get a little iffy. Some people have very strong opinions about money, how it is earned and so on. In this video, Brad and I attack some of our underlying beliefs about money and the whole concept of the true nature of money. From Day 6 of our 7 Day […]
Confidence is one of those human traits that can come and go like the weather. I know in my life I see this happen a lot with sports. One day, I will play an amazing game in basketball and feel like I’m the best player on the court. The next game, I make a few […]
Facing fear is certainly a topic I have discussed on more than one occasion and I am sure it will come up again. It is for a good reason though. We all need to analyze our fears and evaluate how they may be preventing us from doing things in our life. From Day 4 of […]
Being productive is something that can be defined differently by different people. What I consider to be productive today would not have been even remotely fathomable 2 or 3 years ago. My productivity levels have never been higher but it was not always that way. Being productive requires practice and planning. From Day 3 of […]
Moving on to Day 2 of our 2011 kick off, we talk about a huge topic in everyone’s life. Taking action. Many people “know” what they should be doing but they don’t always “do” what they know. Action is the key to achieving anything and we wanted to shed some light on the topic. From […]
My good friend Brad and I wanted to kick off 2011 with a serious discussion about 7 of the most important ideas in our lives. Over the next 7 days, we are going to share these topics and give you our perspective. Each discussion relates to a topic in our personal development program called 7 […]
If you are anything like me, you really hate the feeling of being pushy when it comes to marketing and promoting yourself and your business. I think we hate it because we hate when people sell to us in that manner. I read a great article by Sonia Simone from Copyblogger called: How To Stop […]
I recently read an article on the Jonathan Fields blog which REALLY stood out to me. I read so many great pieces of content online but this one practically jumped off the screen at me. It was a guest post by a guy name Scott Gerber called The Cold, Hard Truth About Starting a Business. […]
In my latest video update, I talk about a topic that has been popping up a lot in my world for the past few weeks. For anyone doing something creative (like starting a business, running a blog, creating music, etc…) you inherently open yourself up to criticism and judgment. Most people avoid this at all […]
This is a serious technique for serious success seekers. Use with caution and monitor your own energy levels to determine how often you need to use this method: The post I refer to in my video is here: http://www.igniteyouressence.com/videos/how-to-pull-yourself-out-of-a-rut
Staying positive and goal-oriented is very easy to do when the going is good. The true winners in life are the people who can persist when times are tough and it seems the whole world seems to be totally against them. The real question is, how do you keep moving forward when the odds seem […]
I gave a keynote presentation this past weekend and the theme of the conference was leadership and teamwork. I was asked to share some ideas that would help kick off the conference and get people into a positive mindset. This video covers the main topic of my presentation which was all about “bringing out the […]
In the past week I faced a few challenging days where I was basically in a rut. I could not seem to motivate myself and I found myself feeling frustrated over the tiniest little issues. It was basically a mini slump. Video 1 – My Explanation Video 2 – My Solution
In my blog post last week I talked about the fact that we are always choosing how we spend our time and focus our energy. Each moment of our lives we have an opportunity to do something and make something happen. This is a follow up and it is a new video I created originally […]
In a VERY long overdue video blogpost, I discuss a cool little technique that has really been working well for me lately. The concept of living your life moment to moment is a very simple and basic. I find that many of us (myself included) can easily overlook the simple lessons when our lives become […]
I have recently started following an up and coming motivational speaker based out of the US named Eric Thomas. Eric has a very inspirational story and is doing some incredible work to help the inner city youth throughout the country. In one of his talks to a group of students, he describes dropping out of […]
I have always been a big believer in modesty and keeping an even keel (emotionally) whether you are experiencing great success or painful failure. Many people would agree that a modest person has an inner confidence that does not need to be flaunted; a sign of strong character. At the same time, I have seen […]
Before this website was blog-based, I promoted my coaching and consulting services through article marketing. I didn’t write a huge number of articles but when I did write, I spent at least 3-4 hours per article to ensure I was writing something very valuable. Many people would contact me via email asking for advice or […]
