5 Commitments I Made at Experts Academy

Gail and I just returned last night from Experts Academy in Santa Clara, California. This four-day event is hosted by Brendon Burchard, author of The Millionaire Messenger. It is one of the top three events I have ever attended.

In addition to Brendon—who is perhaps the most energetic and inspiring presenter I have ever heard—we heard from several surprise speakers. These included Marie Forleo, Jeff Walker, Chalene Johnson, and Marianne Williamson. I took notes non-stop for four days. While I didn’t agree with everything, I learned from everyone.

No New Podcast for a Few Weeks

I will not be publishing a new podcast until October 2nd. I am working hard with my team to finish a couple of really exciting, but demanding projects. I am making the choice to invest my hours in these and skip the podcast for a few weeks.

Thanks for your support. I look forward to connecting with you soon. I will continue to publish my blog on Mondays and Fridays.

For example, not many people know I majored in music for my first two years of college. I played guitar, piano, and bass. Music was my life. It was all I ever thought about.

How to Find the Time for That Important Project

Almost everyone has some important project they can’t seem to get to. Maybe it’s starting a blog, writing a book, or launching a new business initiative. You just can’t seem to find the time to tackle it.
