The Tell Me Economy is Dead

The tell me economy consists of expressions of your worth and capabilities.  It’s your resume, your static LinkedIn profile, a referral from a friend, your personal elevator speech, etc.  The tell me economy is how we used to promote ourselves.

The Greatest Reward From Writing My Book (Not Taught)

I knew Not Taught could help people. That’s why I wrote it, but I’m blown away by how much. That was my motivation for writing Not Taught. I wanted to help people to find success. I wanted people to know that times had changed. I wanted them to know that we had left the Industry Age and entered the Information Age and because of that the approaches and methodologies they were using no longer worked. What

It’s Here: Not Taught Audio Version

It’s here folks. The audible version of Not Taught dropped this week, and I’m pretty excited.  It’s all the goodness that is Not Taught in audio form. I can’t think of anything better than Not Taught on your drive to work, on the subway, at the beach, or while you’re waiting for your kid’s soccer practice to end. A lot of you have been asking, and even some of you have been pestering me, so

Morgan Ingram, SDR Extraordinaire

Guys, I want you to meet Morgan Ingram. Morgan is a stud. Morgan started a YouTube Channel for SDR’s called the SDR Chronicles, and it’s fantastic.

The Difference Between Winning and Losing in Today’s World

The rules to success have changed. If you read this blog, you’ll know I’ve been saying this for quite some time. We’re headlong into the information age. The time when most of us grew up, the industrial age, is well past us, yet far too many of us are clinging to the industrial age, skills and strategies that no longer work for success. We’re still condition to the ways of the past. Two groups of

Why How You Think is Killing Your Career

  Most of us like to believe we’re thinkers and pretty good ones at that. But, the sad truth is, we aren’t. According to University of Texas Psychology professor and author of Smart Thinking Art Markman, we suck at thinking, and it’s to our demise. We’re not wired to think.

How Our Big Event Failed Today #rockymountainfly

When you swing for the fences, sometimes you strike out. We’re sitting here at DIA with our tail between our legs, dejected.  Our grand plan to welcome Virgin America to Denver has been thwarted.  You can read about the plan here. (It was a BIG plan, trust me.

You like to think you do, but the fact is you don’t.
