Best Year EVER!

This year, I'm celebrating a milestone birthday... so I decided to kick off the year by attending Michael Hyatt's Best Year Ever live event in Nashville TN. If you're interested in learning more, he also has a book and a course that follow the same format (but with less hugging and high fives.)

10 Tweaks to Transform Your Website

Is your website hurting you or helping you?

If you’re not sure, you’re not alone. Maybe most of your leads come in through referral. Did the prospect look at your website? Almost definitely YES. Are you using your website to its fullest potential? Almost definitely NOT. You’re not alone, and in fact, that’s somewhat to be expected.

Many of the thousands of comments on the video were something along the lines of

“Why have I been watching this video for the past half an hour, what am I doing with my life?”

Although we can’t answer the bigger question of life priorities, we can understand, at least partly, why so many people would choose to spend time watching such a random, non-essential video.
