You’ll have seen me write about the importance - nay, the need - of starting your day with a simple, small activity that’s only for you and you only.
It literally transforms your days, when you being begin by doing something that makes you feel good and that yes, you deserve.
Now let’s take that a step ...more
Let’s say one day you fall in love, but the other person, sadly, just doesn’t notice you, doesn’t consider you a candidate.
How would you go about ‘getting’ them?
You could try to get them drunk, but that’s hardly a way to start a relationship.
You could try to pull all kinds of dating and seduction tricks, but ...more
Back in the days when I was still a tailor, I used to get good results by participating on forums.
I’d got to places where people talked about good dress, how to choose a tailor, how to knot a tie, and I’d chip in with my two cents.
Being (wassing?) somewhat of a skilled tailor, people liked ...more
Then again, it might be exactly the thing I need to do.
See, I’m not very good at asking for help.
Sure, I’ll ask a friend to help me with my site, or to give me a tip on something they know more about than I do.
But actually coming out and saying: “I don't know where to ...more
There’s something interesting I keep noticing.
Someone will come to me - a reader sends me an email, or I'm having a chat with a friend - and tell me of a new idea that they had.
A decision they made, or an insight they came to.
Some sort of revelation or step in their evolution.
Always something to ...more
Success is never owned - it is rented.
And the rent is due every day.
~ Rory Vaden
Guess what that means, bubba: You’re in this for the long haul, and however you may define success, you gotta plug away at it every day.
Sure you’ll have days when you’re not in the mood.
When you don’t feel good.
Can’t get ...more
I’ve been reaching out to tailors lately.
Because boy, do they need help.
So far, reactions are either: “Doing well, no need for marketing”, or:
“Too busy, can’t afford time to do marketing”.
And that just hurts me so much.
Because I’ve been there, I know what it’s like:
Bills to pay, crappy customers paying crappy rates - so just to ...more
This one's for the girls, though the men reading me should also learn from it.
It might cost me a few subscribers, but ye olde truth must be ye olde told.
Now, first of all, I don’t talk politics here: My point is not to get into a who’s right and who’s wrong.
Also, I'm all for equality.
“Everybody ready? Seat belts buckled?”
“Yes!”, we cheered, “Let’s go!”
He turned the key, and put our brand new VW campervan into gear.
We were off on vacation.
As we motored down to Austria, we were all amazed by exactly how many of these vans were on the road.
It seemed like every few kilometers, there was another one.
And another. ...more
Earlier this week I discovered another, new reason why I’m in this game.
You’ll have seen me wax passionate about art, and how much I love working with artists.
You saw the change happen right befrore your eyes, when I was in Dublin this summer.
You may even have noticed me mention my mother, that bit where she ...more
