The 8 Principles of Friendship

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”  – C.S. Lewis That’s right, folks. Today we are talking about that thing called “friendship.” Difficult to define, yet wonderful to behold, it is probably best summed up by leadership author […]

Orrin Woodward’s LeaderShift

I cannot tell you how excited I was when I heard Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille teamed up to co-write a book. They are hands down two of my favorite leadership authors separately, so there was no telling what they’d be able to do together (SPOILER ALERT: LeaderShift was fabulous). Though not typically a fan […]

Milton Friedman and the Great Depression Myth

Happy Tax Day, everyone! Having just signed over a decent chunk of change to the government today, my mind is quite fixed on the economy and money right now. Unfortunately, I’m about as far from an economic expert as one can get. I’ve read enough to be able to read about and not scratch my […]

What Are Compensated Communities?

Today marks the one year anniversary of the LIFE business, and my, what a year it has been. One of the questions I’ve recently seen popping up quite a bit revolves around one of the core concepts of what makes LIFE so great: compensated communities. Essentially, people want to know what that really means. Well, […]

Your Personal Best

Just came out of a great weekend down in Columbus., where thousands of people attended the LIFE business major leadership convention. The LIFE business exploding, and I’m so excited to see all the lives its materials and compensation plan are changing. One of the talks that I’ve really carried with me since leaving the function posed […]

Why Are You Waiting?

Years ago, I bought a book on how to be more proactive and stop putting tasks off for later. Staring at the book on my desk now, I hope the universe likes irony, because I still haven’t gotten around to reading it. Sometimes, it makes me laugh. Other times, when I really let myself think […]

Courage, Character, and a Sense of Duty

Having taken the dive headfirst into the Mental Fitness Challenge, I’m starting feel it’s both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is obviously that I get to become the best version of myself I possibly can be. The curse? I have to grow. Developing a Spine The saying goes that a wishbone will never […]

13 Resolutions for Life

Leadership expert and author Orrin Woodward’s book RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for Life is hands down one of the best leadership books written in recent history (or ever, but I could be biased). As Orrin discusses below, some of the inspiration for the book came from three 18th century colonial Americans who made a difference in […]

Take the Challenge

Have you taken the Mental Fitness Challenge yet? One week since its launch, and already I’ve seen the positive impact of the Mental Fitness Challenge in myself and in others. As leadership expert Claude Hamilton writes, “The LIFE products provide the tools to change yourself for the better so that you can live the life […]

The Mental Fitness Challenge: Assess Yourself!

You know when you get a new toy, and suddenly it’s all you want to play with? With the explosive launch and viral buzz of the Mental Fitness Challenge, it’s hard to believe I’ve only been at this for a few days, but it’s been a blast! During a conversation with leadership expert and LIFE […]
