Watch the video. It’s 7 minutes.

  • Stop being cheap. Seriously.

    So, I went on a double date. We hit up a nice restaurant and bar down in Soho, NYC. And let me tell you: the bartender was great! Service was great. He was likable and fun. And bonus? He even hooked us up with a few things for nothing. When the bill came, my friends and I decided to split it. And I left about a 45% tip. I don’t often tip that high, but again: the guy was fun. He hooked us up.

  • Behind the Scenes of Social Triggers (and Derek Halpern)

    So, I got into an argument with my videographer. Him: “We should film one of those day in the life videos.” Me: “But my life is pretty boring… All my employees work from their home office… I go to the same coffee shop everyday… And I rarely have meetings.” Him: “Well, lets go do some cool stuff!” But… I can’t do it.

  • How to Sell More: 3 Steps to the Perfect Sales Pitch Online

    How do you persuade someone to buy your product or service… even if you’re not great at “selling?” If you read advice from other “experts,” you’ll see that they recommend you use shady tactics like “fake scarcity,” “fake discounts,” and worse, they’ll encourage you to outright LIE… UGH! David Ogilvy always said, “The customer isn’t a moron. She’s your wife.

  • How to be confident

    What’s the secret to becoming confident in any social situation? About 10 years ago, when I was just starting college, I would have said, “there is no secret. You either have it or you don’t.” And I would have been DEAD WRONG. You see, back then, I had almost zero confidence. But today I’m thinking about getting “unstoppable” tattooed on my forehead.

  • I Had The Depressing Realization That I Got Fat… So I Fixed It

    So, I had a speaking engagement. And I had a big problem. I went to button my blazer and the button popped off… “*#@(@(&#$” So I settled for my second favorite blazer, and then it got worse. I was speaking at an event for personal trainers. As I walked in front of the crowd, everything became crystal clear: Everyone was fit. Except me. I had gotten fat. And I looked like a meatball.
