This past month I’ve been talking about emotions much more which has resulted in unprecedented unsubscribe rates. It’s also been a time of the greatest positive responses to my […]

Rejection is a fundamental aspect of business…
If you’re doing it right.
If you’re getting rejected and are receiving complaints – be heartened… it’s a good thing.

I bought my house about 8 years ago.

If it’s taught me any lessons, I’ve learned that I am NOT handy (building Ikea furniture does not a handy-person make), and I’m not much of a gardener.
