Here is another parable that I really resonate with! Although I do not 100% resonate with the word 'laziness' I feel the lesson is in being efficient and looking for the fastest way to get the most return on your effort! Enjoy..
Why laziness and intelligence are a power combination!
Warren Buffett works only three hours a day... but he is one of the wealthiest men in the entire world.
I love launches.
Launches, launches launches... Firstly lets talk about the elephant in the room.
A 'launch' can only happen once. It happens at the start of the business or product and then its always available for sale. This must be true right?
Yes, and no.
The word 'launch', thanks to a good friend of mine Jeff Walker, has an evolved definition in the online marketing world.
Most online marketing is flawed for the health, wellness and personal development space. People looking for solutions in these areas buy from people they trust and who fit their unique needs, and this takes time.
Connecting and creating deep relationships online then becomes the biggest priority for health, wellness and personal development products.

Every day we are surrounded by the beauty of nature.
Our own bodies, the sun, moon, stars, the ocean, the wind, the animals and insects all around us.

I remember when you used to say...
In replying to an email about the opportunity for world peace I actually found myself talking about why I do what I do every day... A few thoughts...
I have my own passion to make the world a better and peaceful place and I am achieving it through helping educators educate their audience in wellness and health.
My feeling is that if we can connect with our food and nutrition not only does it...
This was a trip of a lifetime!
Really I think I am still trying to process everything that happened..
16 of us entered the canyon with all our food, clothes, camping and cooking gear for 15 nights... Such an amazing spectrum of emotions.
I missed Ellysia and the kids like crazy and enjoyed every second in the canyon.
Every time I took a photo I remember thinking this represented about 10% of...
Apologies in advance: One quiet day, in a sleepy Rocky Mountain our group of 30 entrepreneurs left at 9:30 am on a bus ride to Silverton. We had lunch at the top and returned on a Steam Train down an amazing scenic railroad back to Durango by 5:30pm.
Not everyone loved it.
First person. The bus driver.
What happens when you get 30 creative brains and put them in a bus?
We talk. We...
When I first read this parable it changed my view on work and life. Now use it as a reminder to keep things in perspective. Enjoy and the journey of entrepreneurship and live along the way. Do not wait for the destination, its an illusion. There is only the journey, so enjoy it!
Interestingly I refer to where as I live as a 'little fishing village'.
