Don’t get left in the dust…
Real talk: Shit is happening at lightspeed.
10 years ago, Pinterest had literally just launched. Instagram hadn’t seen the light of day. And Snapchat was just a muddled idea known as “Picaboo.”
So let’s not waste time reflecting — I could go on and on about how the last 10 years took me from debt-ridden studio owner to hosting aspirational retreats in my very own vineyard — but you’re here to get the master plan.
As a hard-charger who knows there’s more to life than being a slave to the 9-5 grind, here’s how to win in 2020 and beyond:
You’ve long heard me preach about the freedom lifestyle. It’s a euphoric feeling to control your own schedule, income, obligations, etc. Or as I like to put it, it finally places you in the driver’s seat of your own life (thank. freakin’. God.)
And the ability to grab the wheel and seize...
“How the heck do I keep momentum going during the craziness of the holidays?”
Let’s get real for a second - as an entrepreneur in the early years of business, you may be working a wee bit during the holidays.
If that’s you...
Here are the 3 things Anna & I recommend for you to keep the needle moving during this season.
What is going to be the thing that keeps everything else moving forward.
If you’re a visionary, you like jammin’ on your vision.
Pick something you know will move the needle AND that you’ll be excited about.
Think about the big assets that you get to work on that will create leverage and be big picture for next year.
Make sure you don’t overcommit to things that you don’t want to do. Be intentional not
just about what you’re working on in your business, but with what parties or family gatherings you are going to.
Don’t worry about social...
Here is a list of the top tools we use for our websites.
There are tons of ways to use social media to launch your business online and to keep it growing. Here are some of our top ways to do it without feeling like a slave to your phone.
A lot of experts want to create a ton of content every single day and that’s fine if your a paid sponsor, trying to grow an audience as an entertainer and online influencer who hopes to gather a large audience so you can get sponsorship deals.
But, if you’re an expert building an online business so you can get clients, posting tons of random content can be overwhelming and confusing to your market.
There’s a lot of noise out there, so learning to focus your content so your message can penetrate the noise and clutter out there is key. Otherwise your audience won’t really hear the message and get to know what you're teaching.
Creating that one piece of content and focusing that idea for the week...
D.R.I.P Post Checklist
Use this handy checklist so you can quickly create new blog content. Keep in mind that a blog post can be written, filmed (video) or audio only (podcast).
In this first phase you’re going to want to do proper research for creating your blog post. What separates first class writers from everyone else is their ability to properly research their content. This performs two specific goals. The first is that the reader get exactly what they are looking for (because you’re basing your post off of finding out what content readers like). Second, it helps your content get noticed (because you’re inserting SEO keywords into your content).
As we say in Hollywood ‘It’s all about your content’. If the idea you’re basing all your efforts on is not solid, then your ideas won’t hold up. Great content should...
Anna and I both built separate ‘at home’ businesses…
And our incomes really exploded when we teamed up and worked towards our grandest vision…to be the best parents we can be.
Whether you’re a parent or not, leveraging your passions with your spouse will help you both achieve the freedom lifestyle you’re after.
In the past, families would own physical ‘family businesses’. But those required massive overhead, staff and a myriad of endless headaches…

Teaching Maps are tools which can help people remember content a lot easier than they would otherwise. Instead of presenting people with reams of detailed information, you give them simplified content and ideas that get right to the point. Not only will they remember the information that you gave them, but you will understand it better too. There’s a big difference between remembering something and understanding something, which is why Teaching Maps are so important. So let’s take a look at Teaching Maps and how they could help you connect better with your target Audience using your content.
Remembering and understanding are the two main ways in which people come to learn anything. You can study and remember information from a book, but does that mean you will understand it? On the flip side, if you understand the content that you have been given, does that mean you will remember it? They’re two sides of the same coin.
You don't want to be overstressed to the point of fatigue or wipe out and it's just crushing your life, crushing your business.
But not all stress is bad. And I learned this lesson now that we're in the wine industry and we've got our vines growing.
When I was in Italy, I learned from this old lady who ran a vineyard, the fact that in Italy it's actually illegal to water the vines! Because they actually want to stress them! Say what?!
This is when she shared that what happens with the grapes and the vines is this…
If water is too easily accessible, the roots of the vines only grow along the surface of the dirt and that makes them more susceptible to animals, to insects, to the climate, to drought, etc.
And that when water is too easily available it actually makes the vines weaker.
So, in Italy (and most of Europe) they like to keep it...
The skill of showing initiative is simply to communicate effectively. Once, a long time ago, we were hunter-gatherers, wandering around in packs. Often, there was nobody in charge. Fights and battles broke out for dominance and in the absence of good communication, there was chaos.
In time, we did begin to communicate. We found we were able to survive longer this way. If one leader-type came up with a solution that involved hunting for food in a certain forest, the rest of the “pack” took notice.
The outcome was truly rewarding. Everyone in the pack ate. The...
