A Year in Review

Jan 03, 2022

Year Review → I call 2021 an enormous success beyond measure and beyond my wildest imagination.

Not for the reasons you think lol!

Yes, there was business success, 7-figure revenue in Q1, which…

lead me to states where I had to question everything and the ideas behind competence, success, achievement… and what followed was….


I was made  aware of her presence recently, but I suspect that she’s been around “helping out”

at least since 2019...

People are afraid if they do spiritual work they will lose their drive.

Dec 28, 2021

Well, they are right.


This year has been an insanely incredibly year. From emotional release to part work, trauma work, radical truth-telling, to sweat lodges and then kambo, ayahuasca & yage sittings (20 or 25x), and iboga.


People are like “you lost ya mind why you need to do all that, isn't one ceremony enough for you?”


I say “I wish, but the level of BS I was in the weeds with was pretty spectacular and the level of belief systems and attachments...

You want the truth?

Dec 22, 2021

It’s been an incredibly difficult year. And I KNOW I am not the only one.

In business, I thought it was hard when I was getting it off the ground.

I thought once the revenue comes in, it's gonna be so amazing.

Now I find it hysterical.

The amount of responsibility and pressure.

The amount of opinions about YOU, your brand, your pivots.

The amount of criticism.

The amount of guilt and shame that was brought up around some of my clients’ struggles.

I acknowledge and applaud everyone...

When you’ve hit the wall and results aren’t coming…

Dec 20, 2021

When we hit a wall in our business and things aren't moving... 


What we typically think it means is this:

  • It’s the tactics; they aren’t working… 
  • It’s the live launch; it isn’t working anymore… 
  • It’s the retreats; they aren’t working… 
  • The market, covid, vax, this, that, other,  people, too much competition.. 

What it REALLY  means is this: (and you don’t wanna hear it)

Time To WAKE UP -- Part 2

Dec 15, 2021

Part 2. 

We have been walking asleep. 

Now what? :-P  

The pain that we are experiencing. The emotional rollercoaster, the sickness, the pressure, the stress.. is the pain of having prayed to false gods and aligning with inauthentic values. 

If you have made it to this point and you had a moment when you said “SHIT. I have been deceiving myself and others my whole life.” huge congratulations. 

What’s the big deceit? 

You know, some people...

Why I Chose Death As My Intention For The Rest of 2021

Dec 15, 2021
We have been through a lot as an entrepreneurial community. Many, many entrepreneurs are at the end of their rope and ready to burn it down and get their day job back.
Don't quit yet. This is the metamorphosis phase.
And it requires death of the old. Or, turning yourself into a goo, whichever way you would like to go.
The vast majority of the marketing tactics that worked in 2020 don’t really work anymore - but it isn’t about the tactics at...

Time to wake up.

Dec 13, 2021

Most of my life I spent wading in the dark. 


And the worst… I didn’t even know it. 


I thought life was good. 


I had gotten citizenship. 


I had traveled to over 30 countries. 


I had an MBA. I had a successful business. Many happy clients. Many experiences. Living in beautiful places.


Having worked on 3 different continents in 3 different languages, having friends all over the world. 


Living life on my...

Nov 30, 2021

What’s the meaning of life? 

Here is what I was shown last week. 

We came here to get lost together. It’s by design. 

We forget we get lost, so we can start to remember again. 

How do you know you are lost? 

Here are a few examples: 

  • You don’t get excited by the same things that excited you yesterday
  • You think if you build a 7-figure business you will be happier than you are now 
  • You want to be liked by others 
  • You like to “feel...

You know what you should do to grow your business.

How To Make a Magical 2022 Plan - Leaders Break Free Podcast Episode 136

Nov 17, 2021

Most of us have accomplished something in the past and wound up not all that happy after it was done. 

That’s because what was creating the plan wasn’t your soul exactly. 

It was one of these things: 

  1. Need for safety (if I  make this much money, I’ll be happy)
  2. Need for approval and respect (If I have that many clients, I’ll be a respectable coach) 
  3. Need for control and certainty (If I can have all my ducks in a row, my 401k, my house, my kids,...
