Top Tips

Neediness Kills Deals

If you come across as desperate people see that you really want something out of them and it turns them off. Whether we are talking about relationships or business deals do not be needy!

Luck and Hard Work

There is not one specific tool for success. You just have to commit to reliable hard work and showing up and putting yourself in a position where you can get lucky.

Just do Things

You don’t learn by reading you learn by doing. There is great content out there to learn stuff but it only has value as a supplement to experience. It means nothing if you just read it and don’t implement it.


There are many ways to view the world. Think about how your frame of things doesn’t match reality and in what frame the person you are talking to is thinking. We make crazy assumptions and miss so much stuff. Think about how you can expand your frame.

Prove your Skills

Prove your worth don’t tell your worth. Words are meaningless. People forget the details of anything you do but they remember how you make them feel. You only make someone feel like you are an expert at something by literally doing that thing in front of them, not by talking about it.
