This page contains the resources that I have found useful in my personal and professional life. Admittedly, it is an eclectic list. It contains everything from quotes and books that I like to podcasts, videos, and slideshows.
If you don’t want to scroll through the entire list, you can click on one of the links below and filter the resources by specific category.
I will update this list as I discover new resources. If you have a resource you think I should add, please email me.
We’re Taking Labor Day Off
We’re taking Labor Day off. It is a holiday here in the U.S.
According to Wikipedia, Labor Day celebrates the economic and social contribution of workers. The first Labor Day was observed on September 5, 1882. It ultimately became a federal holiday in 1894.
Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer. In fact, when I was a boy, school didn’t start until after the holiday. Those were the days!
Enjoy the time with your family and friends.
No New Blog Posts This Week
I am not posting any new blog posts this week. My content team and I are taking the week off so we can rest and recharge after an intense season.
Margin matters, and it’s a big part of our value system at my company. We want to affirm (and model) the importance of time away for rejuvenation. I look forward to connecting with you again next Monday!
No New Blog Post Today [Good Friday]
I am not posting a new blog post today in light of Good Friday. I hope you enjoy time with family and friends during this holiday weekend. I look forward to connecting with you again next Monday.

Thanks for helping to make Season 4 of This Is Your Life a rousing success. We’re taking a breather this week, but Stu McLaren and I will be back next week with Season 5.

Should You Self-publish or Go Traditional? One Resource That Can Help You Decide
People ask me all the time: Should I release my book with a traditional publisher or try it on my own? There are pros and cons to both. So how can you decide? My new ebook simplifies the question by breaking it down to just four factors you need to consider. And here’s the great news: It’s free.
All you need to do is register for my new three-part video series, Breaking the Publishing Code (also free). It’s only available for a limited time, so if you have book inside you but are unsure which publishing route to go, act soon!
If you missed your chance today, don’t worry. I’m presenting the same great material Thursday, April 23, at 1 p.m. Central with an 8 p.m. Central replay.
If you want to blog faster and smarter, now’s your chance. But don’t delay. These spots are already moving fast. Once the registration is full, you won’t be able to attend either of the new presentations.
