Think Of Everything You Do As Seeds You Are Planting

When an oak tree puts out acorns, it knows not all acorns are actually going to result into another oak tree. In fact, one oak tree can put as many as 10,000 acorns in their masting year. And statistically, only one of those acorns is going to take seed properly and grow into a fully-grown oak tree. If you think those are poor stats, I absolutely agree. (Btw, these stats are from the fascinating book, The Hidden Life Of Trees,…

[Ep 87] Do Your Business Your Way

[Ep 85] Change The World; Don’t Just Add To The Noise

In this episode, I’ll be chatting to you about a quote I heard from the movie, The Glass Castle. Here’s how it goes – “Change the world; Don’t just add to the noise”. I love this quote because there is way too much noise in this world. As a new business owner, I tend to hear a lot of noise. Whether it be from nay-sayers, people trying to sell me things or just other people’s opinions on how to run…

Don’t Let The Internet Rush You – No One Is Posting Their Failures

Recently, I read this awesome quote attributed to Wesley Snipes (on his Twitter account), and I instantly copied and pasted it into my archives of useful quotes. It’s basically the title of this post – Don’t let the internet rush you; No one is posting their failures. Boom! Bam! Bing! Absolutely on point. As soon as I read it, I got goosebumps, and that’s when I know something that I am reading (or listening to or whatever) is important. That’s…

Are You Focusing Your Energies On The Wrong Questions?

I get asked this particular question a lot from newbie business owners, or people who are trying to set up an online business, and it always acts like a stumbling block for people. The question being, “Should I build my business under my name, or under a random moniker, like you have done with The Millionaire Hippie?” It’s weird to me, how this question seems to paralyze the people who ask it for weeks, months, or even years on end.…

How To Create Unstoppable Momentum In Business?

When I first started this business and brand, I did what everyone does. I started off by building a website. I went around the Interwebs and looked at all of the successful people in my field, and looked at their website. Of course, that was the worst thing to do as a newbie. I saw all of their amazing professional spick and span websites, and I looked at my starter website and I faltered. This made me think, I am…

Stop Hitting The Metaphorical Snooze Button On Your Projects

Do you know what happens when you hit the snooze button in the morning? When we wake up and go back to sleep, we are actually going back into another sleep cycle, and then interrupting it over and over again. I had an ex who used to hit the snooze button twenty times in the morning before he finally woke up. I would be up with the first alarm, and doing stuff, and he would still be hitting an hour…

Hows That One Year Plan Working Out For You?

I met up with a friend recently. In fact, I have met up with a bunch of friends recently in Toronto as I have come back for a short sojourn to say hello and goodbye all in the same breath. I sit down with each friend, in a different location, but the conversation surprisingly runs exactly the same. The questions are asked entirely by them. All of my attempts to ask them about their life is thwarted by the comment,…
