Find out What High Achievers Are Doing Now to Win in 2015

One thing I’ve noticed about high achievers is that they all share a lot of commonalities. They all have habits that make them unique, but I find many similarities when it comes to the things that bring them success.

7 Reasons You Should Never Do Another Conference Call Again

If you paid me a dollar for every minute I’ve spent on a conference call in my life, I probably would never have to work again.

One Sure-Fire Trick for Overcoming the Winter Blues

Every year we hear news about people who suffer from holiday or seasonal blues. More than just hearing about them, a large number actually experience them. I certainly have.

How Leaders Make It Right When They Blow It

If you’re in a position of leadership, chances are better than good you’re going to blow it with your people sooner or later. It’s like messing things up in your marriage.

Get the Product Launch Blueprint for Free

I was talking with a friend yesterday who just finished his first online sales campaign using Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula. He generated almost a million dollars in sales on the last day.

3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Be Bashful About Selling Your Own Products

Many people who want to build an online business are reluctant to sell. They seem hesitant, almost apologetic, when it comes to promoting their own products. Why is that? I recently saw a Facebook promotion for a book that actually asked, “Anybody interested?” It’s almost like the author didn’t believe in his own message. Crazy […]

3 Surprising Ways to Defuse Your Stress Bomb

If there is one thing that defines our work experience today, it’s stress. It can be exhausting or exciting—often both. But if we’re not proactive, it can really ding our health.

The Proven Formula I Use to Launch Every New Product

About two years ago signed up for Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula course. It was pricey—and it was also priceless. It totally revolutionized my marketing. Forbes magazine named Jeff the “$400 million man” because his Product Launch Formula students have made hundreds of millions with his approach. Based on those numbers, and my own personal […]

All the major sports leagues celebrate their best players. But what if there were a Most Valuable Player award for your team? Would you take home the prize? When I was CEO of Thomas Nelson we established different awards for individuals, service groups, and profit centers. The winners received public recognition, banners, trophies, and prizes. […]

The Hidden Blessings in a Slow Start

When we set goals, there’s nothing more frustrating than getting a slow start. We can see the target, we know where we want to go, but we can’t seem to get traction. That’s how I felt with our recent fall enrollment campaign for Platform University. We actually beat our goal in the end, but as […]

The Most Important Question a Leader Can Ask

Michael and I have been friends for well over a decade. When we met, he was already a good leader. But over the years I’ve watched him grow and become an even better one. And one of the things I love about Michael is that whatever he’s learning, he’s continually passing along to you. If […]

I was lucky. When I became the rabbi of my congregation, I followed a revered leader who had served the congregation for 25 years.
