Everyone looking to get rich quick tends to overlook the absolute safest investment anyone could ever make… with the highest ROI.

Everyone talks about investing and getting rich quick. By investing I mean, investing money into something that’ll get you a return on, better known as ROI. You can invest in stocks, real estate, angel investing, cryptocurrencies, etc. However, with each investment comes some sort of risk. Yes, some higher than others but people tend to overlook one investment that’s guaranteed to give you one of the strongest ROI throughout your entire life. It’s an investment in yourself. …


This review of the top 50 business/self help books will help you determine which books to read and which ones to avoid like the plague.

2018 was an important year for me. I challenged myself, at the start of the year, to read more books. 50 books to be exact. Why 50? Because Ulysses S. Grant is on the 50 dollar bill and he’s a badass… duh.


A story on the pack mentality and how to break free from it…

Cognitive Bias 15 out of 25: Social-Proof Tendency

Humans are constantly having cognitive biases affect the way decisions are made. These biases cause people’s brains to distort reality, impair judgment, and cause impulse decisions. The social proof tendency is one of the most popular because of the absolute stranglehold it has on our lives. Psychologically, humans have a follow the leader mentality where action is typically taken when other people act or when they know it’s a safe decision. In the same sense, inaction will occur when other people are refusing to act. Even in…


The key to the enthusiasm and your best excuse to get that puppy you’ve been wanting…

Why Successful People Are Full of Enthusiasm

All successful people are enthusiastic about what they do. They complete their day to day tasks with energy and can light up a room with their positivity. To me, there’s nothing more captivating than someone that’s enthusiastic. They can easily capture the attention of the room and keep it. True enthusiasm cannot be faked. People can tell if you’re trying to fake it.

I always try to approach clients with enthusiasm. If your client’s not excited about your product or service their confidence levels…


How business is like a game of chess and the best ways to win…

A lot of people fear sales. I’m pretty sure it’s due to the fact that today’s society is less social than it used to be (topic for another day). It’s almost like people will do anything and everything so that they don’t have to socialize with other humans. I think that may be the reason online shopping is so popular these days. It’s funny how people prefer online because in my opinion you should fear online! Just think of how relentless the internet/social media is in…


Find out the one thing no self help book can prepare you for…

There are some valuable lessons that you can learn from haters. More times than not these lessons are learned the hard way. Haters drag people down way too often. Some know they’re doing it. The unfortunate thing is others don’t necessarily think they’re hating. Instead their “being real” or “being a realist.” Whether a hater is oblivious or not, there’s no worse feeling than when your closest friends and family are your haters. …


How the hard close will blow the lid off your sales if used properly.

The hard close is a closing technique that some salespeople don’t like to keep in their arsenal. This happens because it’s more of a black and white close and can come off as pushy, if not trained properly on it. It’s not for everyone but sometimes a client will never buy unless they’re hard closed. The hard close is for those customers that can’t seem to make up their mind but want to “think about it.”

Essentially, the hard close is when you get down to…


A story of how the fear of loss outweighs the satisfaction from gaining…

Cognitive Bias 14 out of 25: Deprival Super-Reaction Tendency

Humans are constantly having cognitive biases affect the way decisions are made. These biases cause people’s brains to distort reality, impair judgment, and cause impulse decisions. The deprival super-reaction tendency is one of my favorites because of the absolute stranglehold it has on our lives. Psychologically, humans can’t stand being deprived of things and will over react in ways to avoid the pain of deprivation. This phenomenon is better known as loss aversion.

Loss aversion relates to how humans would rather avoid a loss than receive any…


Pressure can make diamonds and if used right can create massive success in business….

Applying pressure is a tricky art form. I always say closing a business deal is like catching a butterfly with your bare hands. If you apply too much pressure, you’ll overpower your client and crush any hopes of a deal. On the flip side, if you don’t apply enough pressure the deal is guaranteed to slip away. In this post, I’ll give you some effective ways to perfectly apply pressure. The most important part to remember is that pressure is needed either way.

Anyone that refuses…


How can you expect to succeed if your own mind isn’t even on your side?

We’ve all heard it. We’ve definitely all said it before; I’ll try. I’ve grown to hate this phrase and it’s one of my least favorite next to the phrase “I don’t have time” (check out my post on that here). The phrase I’ll try is basically saying that you plan to fail. There’s no commitment behind those words.

If you think about it, whenever you truly want something you hold yourself accountable until you get it whether it’s graduating school, a promotion, learning a new…
