The Ultimate Strategy To Drafting Your Business Growth

By | Growth Engine, Marketing, Startups | 4 Comments

The best aspect of sharing everything you know is that others will share back.

A few months ago I was in NYC shooting a Facebook Live video on how to draft on other people’s success.

Simple concept: high tides rise all boats.

Afterwards I check my email, and Mike from London emails me recommending a book.

Rising Star by Rich Koch.

I hadn’t read it, but knew the name … he wrote The 80/20 Principle which I had read 10 years prior.

So I bought the book on my kindle, and realized we share some of the same strategies for picking investments and markets to build companies in… Read More

My brother Pierre builds houses.

Huge, jaw-dropping, “how-do-those-even-exist” kind of houses.

A few years ago he asked me what he should blog about to attract the type of customers who could even buy those kinds of houses.

And I said…

Anything that you think they would want to read.

So he took action – that’s my brother – and started writing things like this: Read More

Don’t you love how your parents can ask questions that cut right to your core?

After my second failed venture, my dad pulled me aside and asked me why I didn’t just get a normal job?

I was determined to figure it out.

That’s when I went deep and started mirroring the habits of the world’s most successful business leaders.

By | Metrics, Startups, Strategy | 21 Comments

Do you have a friend who does CrossFit?

Is that all they ever talk about?

Gets annoying right?

One of my best friends, Marty, is that guy.

We always joke that at least he’s not a vegan too 🙂

That being said, I owe everything I’m about to share to Marty.

About a year ago, after his persistence, I finally gave CrossFit another try.

This time it stuck.

Now I’m “that guy” and I literally don’t give a fuck.


Because it’s not about CrossFit. Read More

Want to know the secret to building a profitable consulting/agency business?

It’s simple…

… and once I tell you, you’ll be looking for it everywhere.

It’s the methodology.

Here’s what I mean…

… if you do any consulting, and you’re just charging for the service (coding / design / copywriting, etc) then you’re getting paid for the hour.

If you have a methodology, then you can shift and start getting paid for the value you bring to that hour. (that’s a Jim Rohn quote btw) Read More

How I Validate My Startup Ideas

By | Startups, Strategy | 2 Comments

Want to know why building a tech startup is TWICE as hard as opening a restaurant?

It’s because both the product AND the market are unknown.

They need to be figured out…

… for a sushi restaurant, you just need to know if people in your city eat sushi – which most do.
