Most people initially struggle in sales because they’ve been taking orders their whole life. When you were young, you did what your parents told you to do. Sure, you may have bucked up a time or hundred, but immediately you’d back down from rebelling once they slapped you back with one of those, “When you have your own damn place and pay your own damn bills, then you can do whatever the hell you want to do…but until then, you better do what the hell I tell…Continue

You're gonna have your whoa-mentum days- those days where no matter how hard you worked, the wheels wobbled and maybe even flew off and you skidded into the end of your day saying, "Whoa!"

After losing 70 lbs many people ask me how I lost the weight and although I was excited to tell them all of the thoughts and methods that went into my no pill, no surgery weight loss, I found that I would lose them in mere seconds. At first, they were eager to hear, but when I exploded into my passionate ordeal, their eyes would glaze over with information overload.…Continue

When you’re at low water mark in your life, people try to rescue you by saying that the failure you’re experiencing doesn’t “define” you. And I get it; the idea is to try to isolate the failure-to treat it as a one-time event and not a life without the possibility of parole kind of sentence.
You had no…Continue

If everyday you woke up and weren’t tired….
If you were never sick…
If you never suffered the death of someone close to you…
If you never hit life’s walls- the sudden loss of a job you gave nearly half of your life to, the forced bankruptcy because the economy tanked, the 15 year ride or die marriage ending in divorce, watching your car get repo’d while you hold on to your 5 year old son for comfort, and/or the foreclosure of the only home your children…Continue
Someone's always coming by the dealership selling "plate lunches." Good ole', waist-busting southern cooking such as Smothered Chicken with rice and gravy or Fried Fish and Crawfish Etoufee-these plates are so loaded down with food, you can literally hear the Styrofoam cracking when they hand it to you.
Most vendors sell their dinners the same…
My 13 year old son has not had the best relationship this year with math. In short, math has kicked his butt so much so that he's almost given up. Last night I saw him sitting on the couch just staring at his math worksheet. Watching him out of the corner of my eye, he kept staring at it, but never would put pencil to paper. Noticing this, I sat down beside him…Continue
Esquire Magazine writer Cal Fussman recounted a story about a reporter who had the opportunity to travel with the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali in the prime of his career. Running late and nearly sprinting through the airport to get to the gate in time to catch a flight, Ali looked over to see a woman nervously fumbling to find her camera so that she could snap a…Continue

Have you ever noticed that all head football coaches seem to say the same thing at a press conference? When boiled down, they invariably say something like "They're a good team; we have our work cutout for us; we'll be ready to play." That's it! It makes you wonder why there are press conferences anyway-they give no insight into the challenges,…Continue
