Creative excellence is one of my favorite topics to talk about as I truly believe it is the single most important aspect of EVERY business. When you look at market leaders I have found that exceptional design and creativity is the differentiator that sets them apart from fray.
In this video post I discuss how most professions have formal resources like colleges and training to obtain a foundation in specific areas of expertise, but entrepreneurs can only rely on failures to serve as their aspect of learning. I continue to discuss how iconic figures have used the “University of Failure” to go on to become successful.
This subject is a constant conversation for those that put huge efforts of time and energy into areas of our lives that are important.

Sometimes you get unexpected inspiration for a post. This one came from one my weekly runs in the park. In this video I discuss why and what makes us quit both as people and as entrepreneurs, and how we can beat that voice that tells us to quit. It is in our moments of weakness where we can have our most profound victories.
In this video, I talk about how there is no such thing as an expert. No matter how much skill, knowledge or talent you may have at something, there is always someone who is doing it better than you. The importance of knowing this is that you can use this knowledge as a tool to motivate yourself to be better in everything you do.

In this video, I continue the topic of Outsourcing and the importance of knowing when to keep it local.

In this video, I talk about the importance of brand messaging and why what you say and/or what you don’t say about your brand could send mixed signals to potential customers.

In today’s video, I talk about an invaluable lesson on the power of outreach that I learned a number of years ago from a potential investor that I was pursuing at the time. Since that lesson, I have found that most people look at their power of outreach the wrong way as it’s not so much the number of contacts you may have, but the number of contacts your contacts have that truly defines your outreach.
In today’s video post, I talk about The Power Of Outsourcing and some ways to utilize outsourcing to delegate responsibilities, help manage our agendas and keep us focused on growing our business.
