There is a principle of entrepreneurship and investing that I like to keep top of mind.


Here goes…

Rule #1: Never lose money. Rule #2: Never forget rule number 1.

— Warren Buffet (I think…)

You will gain a huge advantage by never going backwards and never losing ground. The reason why this rule is so important is mathematical. There’s a formula for financial success.

In case you’re interested, here’s the formula.

When someone wants to learn about NFTs, the first thing they usually ask is…

“What does NFT stand for?”

NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token.” But that doesn’t give you the answer you’re looking for, does it?

In this article, I am going to break down everything you need to know about NFTs. I’ll touch on…

  • why they are important,
  • how you can use them,
  • how NFTs fit into a blockchain,
  • how NFTs will play a big role in our culture and the future,
  • what opportunities are.

Let’s get started.

What is an NFT?

Let’s repeat. NFT stands for “non-fungible token.”

In simple English, an…

I hired a business coach.

I never thought I would be the type of person to do this. Over the years I’ve often scoffed and laughed at the people who talk about coaching. In my mind I would be thinking something like…

“Come on bro, a coach isn’t going to do the work for you. Why are you going to pay someone to do something that you could do for yourself?”

I suppose my view on this has shifted. For me, it’s not a matter of wanting “more success.” I already know how to do that. I’ve proven my…

My fiance introduced me to the work of Dr. Mark Hyman.

One of Dr. Hyman’s books is called “What the Heck Should I Eat?” I have not read it, but as Juliana was reading it she would read curtain passages out loud to me because it had such an impact on her.

One of the biggest lessons that Juliana (and I) have learned through this book is the benefits of mindful eating.

As a society, don’t appreciate food enough. I’m not just talking about the taste and the cooking, I’m talking about the spiritual essence of food. With exception…

Everyone knows what it’s like to be stuck in a rut. Dealing with negative emotions is part of being a human being. We all need to deal with it.

But why would you stay in a negative place for longer than you need to? What if I told you there were ways to make yourself feel better?

Everyone is in control of their own happiness.

I’ve been in these situations more times than I care to admit. Through my own experience, I’ve developed some techniques to get myself out of a funk. I think they can help you. …

I’ve never been as much of a believer in social media. Social media looks cool, but it’s been difficult for me to find tangible success with social media.

When I say success, I mean sales. I mean revenue.

I’ve been studying social media a lot lately. I’ve been giving it another look. I think I see some better angles and tactics that I could use to actually grow my brands.

I’m going to give it a try. I’m all in. I will start with my personal brand and I will also do a ton of work for JourneyPure.

This time I am focusing on videos. Lots and lots of videos.

Will report back.

Anytime I get uncomfortable, I start thinking of things to change.

I could change my approach or my brand. I could speak to a different audience. I could change the way I dress or I could change “my mission.”

Sometimes change is an excuse. It’s a way for us to deal with the possibility of failure. It’s a way for us to give ourselves a way out.

We tell ourselves things like, “I didn’t fail, I’m just taking a new approach.”

I had a session with my business coach today. It seems like most of our sessions are focused around…

We’re in the middle of an epidemic.

It’s been rampant for the better part of a generation. It’s deadly. It destroys families and cripples communities.

I’m talking about addiction.

When COVID-19 is behind us, we are going to see addiction and alcoholism rates skyrocket. We need to be prepared for this and we need to come to terms with it now.

Quarantine, isolation, and loneliness are infecting our country with alcohol problems. Online sales for alcohol have increased by 243%. Americans are drinking their way through the pandemic.

It’s been very interesting to watch this play out. The entire world…

Over the last 3 weeks, I’ve slowly started going to bed later. I’ve been waking up a little more tired. I’ve been working past lunch and then rushing downstairs at 3 PM to “grab something to eat.”

I get to the kitchen, whip something up and eat it as fast as possible. I lose all mindfulness of my meal.

Today, I was able to catch myself. I am calling myself out. It’s time to tighten up.

So what are we shooting for? What’s our desired ourcome?

Here’s what my perfect day looks like.

To start, I wake up at 5–5:30…

I just finished listening to the most recent episode of 7-Figure Small with Chris Ducker.

I’ve been following Chris Ducker for years. I’ve always been really inspired by his business because he has built something that almost every online entrepreneur aspires to build.

He’s built a profitable online membership site.

Last year, I launched a membership platform around my personal brand. I had about 20 signups when I launched and I was very excited about it. All said and done, I got up to almost 50 members. That’s almost $500 a month.

However, after a few months, I had to…
