Tip Of The Week – Again!

One of the most powerful things you can do to accelerate your success in 2014 is to form an intentional mastermind group.

Click here and take a look at Dan Miller's new course on how to do just that. It's worth 10 times the investment he's asking.

Spiritual Foundations

Is the so-called “new grace movement” cheapening the concept of grace? Is it promoting something we know as “greasy grace”?

In the podcast, I give my answers to these questions.

Feature Segment:  What Worked (and What Didn't) In 2013

I share my most successful… and also my LEAST successful business moves in 2013. Here's where they'll mean to you and your success in 2014…

What worked:

  1. This podcast.  High leverage, high engagement, premium content delivery vehicle.
  2. Facebook.  Believe it or not, this was my number one source of traffic in 2013.
  3. Premium pricing.  Over 80% of the revenue we generated came from the most expensive 5% of services and products we offer.

What didn't work:

  1. Busyness.  Over committing led to me making a few poor tactical decisions, and was a severe drain on my mental focus, emotional well-being, and physical health.
  2. Complexity. Complexity is the mother frustration, and the father of fatigue.
  3.  Rugged individualism.  It's an American ideal.  It's romantic. It feels heroic. The only problem is, it doesn't work.
