Are you rich? Raise your hand if you are rich.
Are you rich? Raise your hand if you are rich. Every time I asked this question, rarely does anybody raise their hands. One time I asked this question in front of a group of high school students. They all point to a few students in the crowd, with those few
Dear Coach: How Should I Deal with Passive-Aggressiveness?
Today, I want to discuss the behavior of “passive-aggressive” individuals. These are people who, when you ask them for an opinion, will say they have no opinion. When you ask if they are ok, they will say they are fine. However, deep down, they are not fine and they certainly
Dear coach: As a business owner, I feel stuck.
Over the years, I have developed a philosophy on how to run my companies. It’s a philosophy on how to maintain profitable and sustainable growth, while also maintaining a healthy mindset (a.k.a. not going insane). Because of the COVID-19 quarantine, I had an opportunity to start coaching
One simple business idea that helps us make millions over the years
Growing rapidly and explosively is a lofty goal; it’s something that’s become a fairly prominent idea in the tech world. From the outside, it looks exciting. Whole TV shows have been developed around this concept. But, that doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. I believe that
Can the Bible give us business advice?
If you are starting a business, everyone has advice opinions and expertise to share. Some things might be helpful, some might be less than helpful. One source you might not have considered... The Bible. For business advice? Don't write me off yet. A few of the seven deadly sins are
Calling All Procrastinators - You Can Get Things Done

The Dream of Universal Data Sharing
I have been talking about this idea of data sharing for over 2 years now. However, until recently, only people in my inner circles have heard about it in details. The idea came to mind a couple years ago when research institutes started using our platform. I learned a lot
The only bad conversations are the ones you haven’t had
As a business owner, I need to carry out many bad conversations. Telling customer the project is going to be late, telling vendors we won’t pay them on time, telling employees that there will be no pay check this week, and, my least favorite, letting people go. In fact,
The new economy
Yesterday I read an article from Mark Mills on Forbes about the new Economy [http://www.forbes.com/sites/markpmills/2011/12/18/the-good-news-behind-the-zynga-ipo-and-what-it-says-about-the-new-economy/] , and this morning another article on TechRepublic saying now it’s a great time to be a developer. I agree with both, and as usual, I
