I work with a lot of serious entrepreneurs. By “serious” I mean devoted, aware, hungry, keen. At conferences and party do’s, I come in to contact with plenty of hobby-preneurs, freshling-preneurs, just-getting-on-the-path-preneurs. I adore them one and I adore them all. But this takes the wind right out of my strategic cheerleader sails: I ask:
I walked on hot coals once – barefoot. Across a bed of white hot embers about twenty feet long. When you walk off the fiery path you step into a puddle of water and you can hear your feet sizzle and see steam rise. And lo’, thanks to mind over matter, I didn’t even blister.
I announced via Twitter and Facebook last week that my Fire Starter Session fee was moving to $500 (from $300.) And I also mentioned it in my post that went out late last night. And then… Deluge.

How are things? Good. Yeah, good. Fine. Things are fine. Let me ask that question again: How are things? Fabulous. It all feels like an adventure right now. I have synchronicities piling up everywhere. I’ve got all the money I need, in fact, it’s flowing good n’ steady. My skin is glowing. Most nights we
Ever since I discovered Bruce Mau’s Incomplete Manifesto for Growth I’ve been smitten with his notions for change and possibility. His mind is like a kaleidoscope of solutions and problems and questions. This promo for the 2010 Denver Biennial of the Americas is a typically elegant and impassioned call to action. I think I need
