Unfortunately I have to delay opening Conscious Growth Club for early access. It’s going to be at least a couple of weeks before we can start inviting people to register. Initially I’d intended to start sending invites on Friday, March 31. But during testing I encountered a problem with PayPal not referring people back to […]

Your Uncommon Diet Is a Social Advantage

No, conformity puts you at an enormous social disadvantage. Being different is a godsend. Eating differently can enhance your social […]

Never Put Profits First

Most ideas I learned from business books were useless. The rest were downright harmful. Intuition and experimentation have been the best guides.

Coaching Coming Together – Recap

Here’s a recap of the audio recording project I shared in Coaches Coming Together and Why No Women. The recording project was an amazing success — even better than I expected.
