Standing out in a crowded field

You’re doing all the right things. But sometimes when you look around, all you see is your competitors and colleagues getting the clients, promotions, and opportunities you want. Then you start to wonder… “What do they have that I don’t?” Instead of getting discouraged or giving up, it’s time to …

Did you leave me a message?

We did it! As of this morning, we’ve officially released 100 episodes of the Hustle & Flow podcast. For almost two years, we’ve been having weekly conversations. I would say it’s been mostly a one-way conversation but that’s not even close to the truth. Even though I record the podcast …

Dealing with negative feedback

It’s probably not the best idea to tell you that I’ve received negative reviews. Like you, I take my work and performance very seriously. So, if you’ve ever received negative feedback (and, because you’re human, I’ll assume you have), you know how it can make you want to run and …
