Voice of Indiscriminate Doubt

"I should let you know that you may have overestimated my potential," he said to me. "I thought about cancelling this meeting but I wanted to tell you in person that you might be wasting your time."

This is from a friend who has a lot to offer the world, but he doesn't know it yet. I know he will read this, but this isn't for him. It's for you.

Shipping: Remembership 2nd edition

Thanks to some great editing, the second edition of Remembership now reads like an entirely different book. Here's what one of my early readers said: 

"I read the new edition of Remembership over the weekend. It seems like a completely different book!? It reinforced all of the things we have been through. It was a surprise to find many new nuggets of info. It certainly is a different read."

I'm proud to release the second edition of Remembership: New Strategies for Remarkable Membership Organizations. It's 28% bigger and the price is 31% lower... an even better value for your trade association, chamber of commerce or economic development organization.

New Edition of Follow You Anywhere

Follow You Anywhere is a book about working, and about the work it takes to lead. 

On Friday March 4th, I'm releasing the one-page edition of Follow You Anywhere. It's intended to be a simple visual reminder of the lessons inside the pages of the book. I think it's worth moving your favorite Successories poster for this. 

Get on the list right here. 

Also, my friend Brian Wrasman in North Carolina is a brilliant and passionate media producer. Video, podcast, interactive maps, advertising... he's terrific. He interviewed me for his podcast and it turned into 3 podcasts. This podcast talks about the launch of Follow You Anywhere as a one-page book and the history of the project. Enjoy. 

Throw away the squirrel food

I wrote Follow You Anywhere in 9 days, or did I? When people ask me, "Wait, how long?" I usually tell them ten years. That's how long it took to gather and learn the lessons I share in the book. 

This month, people are talking about the new UFC featherweight champ, Conor McGregor. He knocked out the former champ in 13 seconds. How does a guy conquer a division in 13 seconds? I think it's similar to writing a book in 9 days. 

I'm a fan of the UFC. If you're unfamiliar with it, you may perceive it as violent or brutal, but the informed viewer sees an art form in the mixed martial arts competition.

16 Days of Speaking, Consulting, Cruising & Reflecting

Day 1 of 16 on the road. Nothing like getting 3,000 miles from home and realizing what you forgot to take care of before you left. Also, I miss Wyatt already. Also, super excited for this trip. Also, 16 days is a long time. Also, SEX/K got the upgrade.

Day 2: Sarasota Florida today, where its been validated, this feeling I've had for years, that my content isn't Chamber content. It's business content with a NGO vocabulary. Lots of new fans here from all over North America. Heading to a conference in Fort Lauderdale tonight. Sunny and 90.

Day 3: I spent the day with amazing people today, the third of a 16-day tour of the southeast. Met Jay Berkowitz who is a digital marketing legend since Zuck was in high school. Maybe middle school.
