BLACK FRIDAY FRIENDS

Black Friday, a day full of being overwhelmed with ads, rushing to buy things we don’t need, and fighting crowds over the latest and greatest gadgets. Sounds fun huh? Though many dread the lines and crowds of this annual day, we need to be more concerned about the Black Friday friends and co-workers in our lives. Just as the hype of Black Friday can drain your bank account, the harmful effects of Black Friday friends ...

HOW TO BECOME THE YOU THAT YOU WANT TO BE

During a family breakfast outing recently, Britton and I were talking to my then 4-year-old nephew about his workout regime. My brother asked him what he was doing, and Carter said he wasn’t doing it anymore. Britton asked why, and Carter responded with, “I didn’t like it anymore, so I Deleted it out of my mind,” and went back to eating his pancakes. I didn’t like it, so I Deleted it from my mind. So ...

HOW TO CLOSE THE BIG DEAL

We place so much emphasis on the BIG Close, the BIG Deal, the BIG Client as if that one BIG opportunity can change everything. Sometimes it can. However, what we neglect is far more important to long-term success than the occasional BIG close. We all want the home run, but it’s the base hits in life that give us consistent victories. To put it in perspective, it’s safe to say that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball ...

3 LEADERSHIP TIPS FOR LIVING A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE

I’m a big believer in excellence…so much that I wrote a book “The Idea of Excellence,” in 2014. It was written on the belief that if success is measured by how you compare to others, then excellence is how you compare to your potential or capacity. Excellence, therefore, is the true test of character, work ethic, and ultimately defines your legacy. The other day, I was talking to my brother Britton about building successful corporate cultures ...

5 BUSINESS LESSONS LEARNED FROM RAPPING

I was 24 years old and had just finished my Master’s Degree from Baylor University.  I had no job, nor did I own a resume because Plan B was always to Make Plan A work…and my plan A?... well I didn’t have one.  I just knew I wanted to work for myself.  Yet I had bills to pay and dreams to live so I stuck with the only thing I knew how to do…Hustle… through ...

50 MILE RACE STRATEGY

Today is my brother, Britton’s birthday and I was reflecting on my favorite memory from this past year and it was when he and I completed the Hoka OneOne Rocky 50 50 mile trail run race.  It took 13 hours and 49 minutes in 24-degree weather. The question we have received all year is “HOW DID YOU RUN 50 MILES?” The answer is quite simple, but the same strategy we used to run 50 miles ...

ReCharge Yourself

Yesterday, I was frustrated that I had to charge my MacBook, iPad, and watch all at the same time during the middle of the day.  Was I frustrated because they needed to charge? No. I was frustrated that I didn’t charge them at night and therefore was set back during the day.   We as people are similar.  Have you ever hit that wall in the middle of your workday? Have you ever asked yourself ...

Create Your Own Path

Recently, I learned a lot about what it means to create your own path to reach your personal goals. My brother Britton competed in an adventure race known as 29029. The race has contestants climbing up and down a mountain for 29,029 feet, the vertical equivalent of Mount Everest, with a strict 36-hour time limit. That’s right, 36 hours to climb 5.5 miles vertically and close to a marathon of actual distance traveled. The race ...
