Halftime of a WEIRD Year

June 30th has come and gone. Half of the year has transpired. So tell me (or someone else or just yourself), how’s it going? Are you on schedule to have the kind of year you planned? Business working? Family? Recreational activities? Other things? I don’t believe in New Years resolutions. To me, any day is a good day to set goals and strive to get better. I do know, however,… Read More »Halftime of a WEIRD Year

The Post Corona Classroom

Eventually, we’ll open up. Eventually, we will have real LIVE students in a real LIVE classroom. The Post-Corona classroom may be different, but many things will not change. Below, we’ll examine both. The three biggest challenges facing every class (at least from the student perspective) are: money, relevance and time. Income is down, budgets are tight and I (the student) am swamped. So in order for a student to want… Read More »The Post Corona Classroom

Daily RICHual #97: The Anti-Jerk Rant Part 1

There has been an unfortunate phenomenon that has returned since our Stay at Home orders have been loosened, that is people acting like jerks on the road and ESPECIALLY in stores. I guess when you’ve been confined to your home for a while and have had limited opportunities for social interaction, jerks have fewer chances for jerkiness. Well, all that has changed.

Daily RICHual #96: When the Going Gets Tough, Back to Basics

Having a tough time in Corona world? Someone once said, when the goin’ gets tough the tough get goin’. A fabulous sentiment, by the way, but how does that actually work in the world of sales? Well, it works best when you and your business are grounded in the basics. We all have it in us to reach back and rely on our basics to achieve when troubles arrive. Maybe… Read More »Daily RICHual #96: When the Going Gets Tough, Back to Basics

Daily RICHual #95: Pivoting much?

One of the things I’ve had to do in the last 10 weeks is embrace the online course. Whether it’s been Facebook LIVE, Adobe Connect, or ZOOM, it has been a change to have to deliver content in this different fashion. It has been, using a nice buzzword, quite a PIVOT in my business. So as I am pivoting during this time, it causes me to wonder how that pivot… Read More »Daily RICHual #95: Pivoting much?

Daily RICHual #94: Rain Delay

I just heard an amazing analogy on a Gary Vaynerchuk podcast. Alex Rodriguez was discussing how his businesses were dealing with the Corona Virus situation and he likened it to a rain delay in a baseball game. He said his manager, Joe Torre, used to say that some guys went back into the clubhouse, had a burger or two, took a nap. Others hit the batting cage, got on the… Read More »Daily RICHual #94: Rain Delay

Daily RICHual #93: Lovin’ It!

Two quotes collided in my brain this morning. First Gary Vaynerchuk said “Laziness comes when you’re chasing money instead of a game where you love the process.” Simon Sinek said, “When we work hard for something we don’t believe in, it’s called stress. When we work hard for something we do believe in it’s called passion.”

Daily RICHual #92: Neuroplasticity

I was reading an article yesterday and it mentioned neuroplasticity. It was one of those words I hadn’t heard in a while, not surprisingly as there are few instances in casual conversation where someone might say, “So how’s your neuroplasticity?” The idea, in the simplest of terms is that our brains grow. It can occur with the altering of neural synapses and pathways as well as other changes at the… Read More »Daily RICHual #92: Neuroplasticity

Daily RICHual #89: What do I do with my hands?

There is an episode of How I Met Your Mother called the Bracket and in itMarshall has to pretend like he’s minding his own business. His problem is he doesn’t know what to do with his hands. Up until a few weeks ago, I had the same problem meditating. Nice seque, huh? My initial guided sessions didn’t really give any advice, so I did what any inquiring, self-motivated person would… Read More »Daily RICHual #89: What do I do with my hands?
