How to fall asleep when you're stressed out.
Have you had a hard time falling asleep lately? That's weird, I haven't. I've had such peaceful, global pandemic sleep. My head hits the pillow and I enjoy eight, stress-free hours of Slumbertown. Or, I toss and turn, while trying to figure out what disastrous thing the news is going to tell me about tomorrow and what I'm possibly s...

How much did I get paid for my book?
Can you make a living chasing a dream full time? That's a question I get a lot. I thought it would be fun to answer that with a look at the check I got for my first book last week. I'll tell you what I got paid in 2010 when I signed the publishing deal and show you the amount that hit my bank account last week. I made a quick video that walks ...

4 reasons this is the best notebook in the world.
I have no fashion sense. I think people assume I'm filming 10 videos a day on my YouTube channel because I'm always wearing the same thing but I'm not. I just wear a black t-shirt and jeans every single day. I have zero style. My wife once said that I dress like a combination of a skater and a mid-market local weatherman. I'm thinking about the...

A text I sent my friend that I think you might like, too.
The other day, a friend texted me a question. It wasn't Dolly Parton, if that's what you're thinking. It was a different friend. Dolly Parton and I don't even text that much because she doesn't have my number and we only met that one time, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to manifest Dolly Parton into being my best friend. My friend, who was not Do...

5 books that changed my life.
Has a book ever found you when you needed it the most? Maybe a friend gave it to you because you were going through a crisis. Maybe you heard an interview with the author on a podcast and it felt perfectly timed just for you. Maybe you owned it for years but it didn't make sense until you went through a challenge and picked it back up. That's th...

3 things to do when you want to eat your feelings.
People always say that you shouldn't eat your feelings. I agree with that in principle, but have you ever tried a feeling? Feelings are delicious. That's what no one is ever honest about. Feelings are so good. And they go with everything. Nervous about losing your job? Add a side of dipping feelings. Global pandemic that's turned everything up...

PAST: Pivot, Don't Panic Virtual Presentation
Pivot, Don't Panic: The Four Investments Smart Teams Rely on During Uncertainty (Virtual Presentation) Six months ago, "change"; was something we all knew we'd need to deal with someday. It was just over the horizon. It was around the corner. We knew it would come, we just didn't know when and we didn't know how. Then the world got flipp...

The truth no one wants to admit about Millennials.
"Do you know what the big issue is with Millennials?" he asks me. I don't, it could be one of a million things at this point. For a group best known for their laziness, they sure have been busy ruining a lot of things for older generations. "They don't look you in the eye when you're talking to them." He answers. I immediately take my eyes off ...

How to learn from mentors you never meet.
There's an unwritten rule in Nashville that if you see someone famous around town, you don't bother them. You pretend you don't know them. You don't ask for a photo or an autograph. You let them go about their day as if they're a normal person just like you. This is why when I saw Sheryl Crow at our neighborhood swim meet, I didn't bat an eye. ...

The personal crisis that changed my life 12 years ago.
Twelve years ago, I had a personal crisis. A small ad agency I started with a friend blew up in my face. Our biggest, and let's be honest, only client fired us. Worst of all, we owed them money back that we just didn't have. I won't go into specifics but I had about a nickel to my name and we owed them significantly more than a nickel. The only...
