Embrace Uncomfortable Conversations

Embrace Uncomfortable Conversations

I heard recently that "a person's capacity for growth is directly related to their willingness to have uncomfortable conversations." I wish I could remember where I heard that...because it struck me.  And it struck me, because like so many people, I often avoid them. ...

It Was A Tough Day

It Was A Tough Day

Friday was a tough day in Coshocton County. In addition to the challenging personal times we are living through (and there are more than I care to list here), it was a heavy day.  It started with sirens wailing around town and I texted my wife and daughters to make...

Keep Going

What if today was the day you broke through? You have been working in this sales job for months.  Or maybe you have been creating content for a year.  But on many days, it feels like no one cares.  You are doing what "the experts," tell you to do.  But it feels like...

Consider This Your Nudge

I have been intentional the past week or so about "putting good in my brain."  This has included curating the books and podcasts I listen to, and the amount of time I have spent on social media.  I have just been a bit more selective.  When I do this, I find that I am...

Entrepreneurship Is Solving Problems

Entrepreneurship Is Solving Problems

I love being an entrepreneur.  I really do.  It's incredibly interesting, challenging, and always something different.  And it gives me the ability to chart the path.  I love that.  But make no mistake...it's not easy.  Entrepreneurship is incredibly challenging. ...

The Good Old Boys Club

The Good Old Boys Club

In a world that has increasingly more tools and opportunities, blaming others is the crutch of the lazy. I have heard about "the good old boys club" most of my life.  And I know there was a time when there was such a club...and it had influence.  But the more I am...
