Integrity With Yourself Sep 20, 2021

What happens when you are out of integrity with yourself? 

For most of my life it was easy to keep my word to others, to show up on time, to do what I said I would do. The area where I struggled, even after I started coaching, was being in harmony with myself. I would commit to launch my...

What We Measure Matters  Aug 19, 2021

What we measure matters, or does it? Typically, I would tell you that what we measure matters, but over and over again I see examples of measuring and not making a difference. The easiest example is stepping on the scale each morning and yet not changing any behavior related to weight.

Life, Love and Making it Count Aug 12, 2021

This week started a little differently than most. First my wife and I had just attended a virtual business conference all weekend. We were excited, exhausted and ready to take massive action in our business. Monday morning conference hangover… so many things to take action on, she still...

Time Management Aug 02, 2021

Time is a resource that for many feels out of control. Time, like money and other things, is really a matter of how you think about it. If you get your thought life about time correct, it makes it easier to use time for your benefit, rather than feeling like you are being controlled by the...

Change Your Story, Change Your Life Jul 08, 2021

There's huge power in changing your story.

When I was in eighth grade, I lived in a small town, and one elementary school, middle school was 11 miles away. And the high school was 20 miles up the road. Middle School was by far, my worst school years.

Non Negotiable Habits Jun 16, 2021

In talking about developing new habits as entrepreneurs there are some habits that I would consider non-negotiables to success.

Those are pretty strong words. The idea that every successful person would have the same habits seems like a stretch but give me a chance.

I’ll narrow it down to...

The Power of Habit May 12, 2021

This weekend I installed some motion activated night lights in my stairwells. It allows us to avoid using the lights and they are only on when someone is walking by. 

The interesting thing was the first time I walked down the stairs and the night light came on, I automatically reached for...

The Power of Words We Use With Others Apr 14, 2021

Words are powerful. We use our words against ourselves, and we use our words against others. Today we will address the power of words we use with others.

We are creative beings. Even if you don't feel like you're an artist, or a creator, all of us are creative beings, we have the power to create,...

The Power of Boredom Mar 18, 2021

James Clear in Atomic Habits says, “The biggest threat to success is not failure, it is boredom.”

That line hit me like a ton of bricks. I have been thinking about the last six months and the roadblocks that I felt were holding me back, from building my business, and I realize it is...

Compassion & Comfort Mar 10, 2021

This morning I had a huge revelation about my practice as a business coach. I came to coaching after twenty years of church ministry. In my work as a missionary and pastor, we sought to help people in their struggles and challenges in life. We called it leaning into the mess.

Why We Wear Masks (Not the ones that stop the virus) Feb 24, 2021
Today I want to talk about wearing masks.

Not the kind of masks that are protecting us from the virus, but masks that cover our insecurities and help us to deal with life. A lot of people wear masks, because of the hurts we’ve all experienced. Maybe it’s words about our appearance, or...
