Brand Manage Camp is Worth It

I wouldn’t ever write a post like this if I were asked. I hate when people ask me outright to say nice things about them or their company or their event. No one asked me to write any of this. I need to tell you that so I can say what I want to say […] The post Brand Manage Camp is Worth It appeared first on

Your Message and Your Voice

I’m writing this for my Owner Insiders but figured I’d share it with you, as well. The idea is one of those simple-but-potentially-profound ones. I’ll be sharing it with the people at Owner Action Systems LIVE in Portland, Maine on 9.24.16. Show More Summary

Advertising Hits a Hurdle

This guy is known as Pewdiepie. You can decide he’s a weirdo (he is). You can think his videos aren’t interesting because they’re mostly “let’s play” coverage of video games (currently one of the top watched video categories of YouTube). Show More Summary

Labor Day

I’ve never been one to celebrate Labor Day. It’s a US holiday built to say, “Hey good job, workers. You did work!” Seems a bit patronizing to me. I prefer to celebrate work every day. But you can make a holiday what you want, and so I made mine my own. Labor Day Over the […] The post Labor Day appeared first on

How to Write Better

I wrote a book on how to Find Your Writing Voice. The idea came because Jacq said she wanted to know how to translate her unique self onto the page, onto her blog, into emails and more. You know, in a world where writing and communication are more important than ever, I wanted to make […] The post How to Write Better appeared first on

What Do You Lose by Fitting In?

I just looked over my last ten posts. The only thing they all have in common is that I’m not talking about what all my other friends are talking about. I’m not talking about lead magnets and how to automate your tweets or why it’s sad that Blab failed or any of that. I’m not […] The post What Do You Lose by Fitting In? appeared first on

Content Marketing: We Must Entertain

I’m working on a new post, but I want to make you watch this video ahead of it. I won’t explain why yet. Just go with me. Continue Reading The post Content Marketing: We Must Entertain appeared first on

Wait Where Did Yesterday Go

It’s practically September, you know. The year is almost over. How much did you accomplish? Can you measure it in any way? Do you have any markers? I’ll tell you straight out that I didn’t do nearly enough to cover myself in this regard. I didn’t track it well enough. Wait: Where Did Yesterday Go? […] The post Wait Where Did Yesterday Go appeared first on

Pokemon Go Stats

The guys at BargainFox sent over this insane infographic full of Pokemon Go information. There are some fascinating numbers in there. Continue Reading The post Pokemon Go Stats appeared first on

The Right Kind of Advertising

Matthew McConaughey is smart, and so are the people at Wild Turkey, a Kentucky maker of bourbon. They approached the actor to be the celebrity spokesman for their product. You’ve seen it a million times before. But Matthew wanted more. He said that he wanted to dig in and get his hands in the clay […] The post The Right Kind of Advertising appeared first on

The Motivation Habit

I just got back from a half hour of rucking (which is hiking around with a backpack full of weight – in my case, 55 lbs). I’ve been doing this almost daily for three weeks straight, heading into my fourth. The training I’m working on has eight weeks of this in the menu before I […] The post The Motivation Habit appeared first on

Pokemon Go is a Phenomenon – Get Into It

I never write about the bleeding edge of things. It doesn’t benefit most people to run out and try something very new most times. But I really think you should give Pokemon Go a try and I’ll explain why. What is Pokemon Go? If you’ve ever heard of the video game / card game / […] The post Pokemon Go is a Phenomenon – Get Into It appeared first on

Five Good Dishes – Make Your Business Smarter

Our friend James showed us the wonderful independent bookstore, McNally Jackson while we were in New York recently. We left with a stack of books (which I never do, because I’m a digital downloads kind of guy) and probably could’ve stayed...Show More Summary

We Are All Foreigners

The recent vote for Britain to depart the European Union came with a tall side order of hate, racism, and fear. Your first reaction will probably mirror mine: deplorable. And it is. But there’s more to it. Hate Comes From Fear This kind of hate, anyway, is the stuff of fear. The people most affected […] The post We Are All Foreigners appeared first on

I Have a Secret Weapon

I have a secret weapon when it comes to building my business, and it’s something I definitely can’t train you to have. I love to share thoughts and ideas with people. I love creating posts. Text, video, audio. It’s all great for me. I love sharing. My Secret Weapon The beauty of such a secret […] The post I Have a Secret Weapon appeared first on

Blogging Isn’t Dead

You can read (ironically) a blog post every day or so telling you that blogging is dead. They tell you to write into Facebook notes or into Medium or anywhere but on your own blog. They tell you that no one visits blogs any more. And whoever “they” is have lost tons and tons of […] The post Blogging Isn’t Dead appeared first on

Influencer Marketing – Simple Rules to Make It Better

I’ve had the pleasure to work with many different companies on several influencer marketing projects over the years. Some were really well run and excellent and others felt like they weren’t a great fit (my problem, more than theirs). Show More Summary


I’m at an interesting time in my career. Everything I’m “most known for” is mostly stuff from between 2006 and 2009, and though I’ve continued to be in the public eye and adding lots and lots of value where I can, it’s not like I’ve delivered any next BIG thing that has people talking. People […] The post Definition appeared first on

Sugar – I Had No Idea

I’m writing this to tell you about beliefs, and how dangerous it can be to believe something. I’m not writing this to tell you to make any kind of changes in your eating habits. I want you to know this because I love sugar, things made with sugar, and I love all the fake sugars […] The post Sugar – I Had No Idea appeared first on

Get Your Voice Out There

I got back from my fourth trip out to Social Media Marketing World (run by Mike Stelzner and team) and had a blast. I also came back quite inspired. Though I rail against “social media” quite often these days, I caught the thread of what it should REALLY be doing for us. It’s about making […] The post Get Your Voice Out There appeared first on
