How To Positively Influence Hundreds DAILY
My face blushed read again. I was in the middle of speaking to an audience of South African students in Polokwane, about three hours outside of Johannesburg. There was no clicker to change the slides of my powerpoint, so every time I said “next slide”, I had the audience clap (securing me at least 12 […]

Respect The Hustle
“These seats aren’t the most comfortable, are they?” The man next to me had a point. We were 30,000 feet up, somewhere between LAX and JFK. Exactly where we were en route didn’t matter as much as the fact that it was 3 am and I was tired as hellllllllllll. The last few days, I’ve […]

The “Why” and “Who” of Blogging…(And, I’m Back!)
(First person to email me telling me the irony of my title with my picture above will get $1 sent to them via Venmo!!!) . . . “So then why did you stop blogging?” I found myself at a loss for words. Yesterday, my friend Cassidy asked me this simple question on our train ride […]

How To Create, Host, And Leverage Epic Dinner Parties To Rapidly Grow Your Network
I read a Forbes article called “The Most Connected Man You Don’t Know In Silicon Valley” when I was 16 that changed my life. In the article, the writer discusses the networking prowess and abilities of David Hassell, CEO of 15Five where I worked for two years in roles from unpaid intern all the way […]

MJ Will Be Making Jump Shots At 60 (And Why Habits Are Crucial)
If Michael Jordan hypothetically didn’t touch a basketball again until he was 60 years old, he’d still be sinking smooth, silky jump shots whenever he returned to playing the game. Now, you may be thinking, this is obvious considering he is the best basketball player to ever grace a court. Yet, the reason why he is the […]

Good Deeds Aren’t Just For The Holidays
SHE STOOD THERE, SLOWLY DROWNING IN THE PUDDLE OF HER OWN SOBS. This is a story I’ve never told publicly. When it happened, two girls asked if they could videotape me and make me “Internet famous” (in their own words) for my good deed, but it wouldn’t be right. It wasn’t about me… As I […]

I Struggle To Justify Buying A Cup Of Starbucks, So Why Did I Just Wake Up And Spend $1122!?
This morning I woke up and spent $1122 on Bill Baren’s new “Premium Packages Success System Program”. The following is my self-justification/self-reasoning/public teaching opportunity/meta-analysis of purchasing decisions, self education, and abundance vs. scarcity mindsets. Disclaimer #1: Bear with me…these are not extremely polished thoughts like the ones that will end up being published in The Gap […]

Do You Prosper, Or Crash And Burn, Because Of How You Do This One Thing?
I got kicked out of where I was staying today… My friend Ana forgot to mention yesterday to her landlord that a 6’2 American male would be crashing the couch during his backpacking expeditions throughout Europe. Yup. Now I’m sitting at what I think is the German version of Blue Bottle coffee in San Francisco, where […]

30 Person Selfies, Shaking Hands With A Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and Designing One Hell Of A Life
My mind raced as I fiddled around with my less-than-peak-performing computer and spotty WiFi for over an hour as the double decker bus breezed through Norwegian and Swedish countryside this morning. You could only imagine my frustration. Talk about losing patience… Except I didn’t, and that was a new feeling. I mean, maybe the WiFi […]

The Gap Year Experiment Heads To Europe!
Before I begin…an apology. It’s been over 10 DAYS since I’ve last posted, and while I’ve been working on multiple “experiments” in order to share those insights with you and help you tackle major life decisions in an easier way, I have not been so good at giving you updates along the way. Please forgive […]
