That priceless feeling!

I’ve spent more than half of my life challenging the norms, fighting the status quo (in a way) and bending the rules to just be satisfied with whatever I was doing. And I thought that’s what life is all about — either follow the rules or create new ones, by bending them. Despite the insignificant […]

Any given Sunday!

Hand me a list and I’ll get to work. Today wasn’t any different. I should ideally be happy. The day was super productive… But it’s almost midnight and I miss my kids. They’re fast asleep. Of course, I’ll catch up with them tomorrow but that’s not the point. The challenge with all us hustlers is […]

Do pass this on to a “content marketing” newbie…

It’s been quite a “content” heavy day for me. Literally. I’ve been bumping into content marketing or related queries/posts/comments/suggestions/strategy all through the day! It’s dinner time… and lo, I’m talking about “content” here again! I’ll keep this one short (I’ll try) — “content” is everywhere. The ideas, suggestions, tactics and the strategy (short, mid or […]

Why even bother with side projects

Regardless of who you’re working for (yourself or someone else), you should have a side project. Period. It’s not about hustling to make millions. If it happens, great! If not, that isn’t the point anyway. I’ve been working on numerous side-projects since 2007. And I’ll be honest, I haven’t made a nickel off any of […]

How to make it easier for others to refer you

We know asking for referrals is the most effective way to grow your business. Some organizations have thrived purely on referrals. But most organizations, especially the small ones, are hesitant when it comes to referrals. They feel its awkward and intimidating (for the obvious fears of failure or rejection). And it sure is. But if […]

Guess who’s making the most money these days?

I remember buying my first information product. It was a copywriting course for $99 (or something like that, from what I can remember it was probably more… but I’m not sure) from one of the pioneers in the business. The course promised to transform my life and business (which I didn’t have) in just 90 […]

The buyer’s process

If you’re an entrepreneur or a freelancer or a business development expert you’ve been shown the door, brushed off, asked not to contact again or worst, been told: “they’ll think about it and get back to you.” Right? If that’s you, then let me tell you one thing — I’ve been there myself and can […]

Execution is everything!

I’ve talked in detail about hustle porn and how delusional can it get after some time (without any offense to GaryVee, of course, he wouldn’t give a shit but still…). Like it or not, the millions of fans that Gary has like him for the motivational messages he shares on a daily basis. It just feels […]

Value the process more than events. Don’t wait for inspiration. Be willing to sacrifice pleasure for an opportunity. Dream big. Plan your priorities. Give up to go up. Want […]
