How salary negotiation coaching is like cooking a tricky pasta recipe

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 19:01:14 +0000

My favorite Italian recipe is technically called Penne allo scarpariello, but I just call it “the penne dish”. A couple of friends brought it back with them after they spent a year living in Salerno, Italy. I was hooked the first time I tried it, so I asked them for the recipe. Here are all the […]

My first ski trip since high school was awesome

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 23:37:59 +0000

I lay on my back, staring up at the blue sky. I assume it was beautiful, although I can’t really remember because I was desperately trying to catch my breath at 11,000 feet above sea level. I looked past my feet, up the mountain to find my ski. My friend had already found it and […]

Where was this video BEFORE my first time skiing?

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 14:16:29 +0000

I couldn’t see through all the snow spraying me in the face, so I just closed my eyes and waited for impact. Another skier was trying to stop before he ran me over, and he barely missed me. I had fallen – again – and couldn’t get up. This was my first ski lesson. It […]

My first 15k race didn’t go well

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 22:20:32 +0000

I ran my first 15k (9.3 miles) this weekend, and it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. The official race results say it took me about 1 hour and 20 minutes to finish with a pace of about 8:38 per mile. At first, I was pretty upset with myself because I hoped to be […]

Using micro goals to achieve macro goals

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:19:35 +0000

Goals are my best tool for staying motivated. I have macro goals—big things I want to accomplish—and micro goals that support those macro goals—small things that give me easy wins while making progress toward my macro goals. Before last January, I had never really been A Runner™. I had run before, but mostly as a […]

This isn’t working

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 13:54:28 +0000

Nick Saban did something truly remarkable on Monday night: He benched his starting quarterback and brought in a backup for the second half of the National Championship football game. It’s hard to describe how crazy this is – it’s never happened before. Football coaches are notoriously stubborn. They learn a system that they like, and […]

My 2017 Year In Review: Making a living

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 16:21:27 +0000

In May of 2017, my business was in real danger. I had finished 2016 on a high note, finally breaking even for a few months in a row. But revenue began to slow in January, and my savings account was shrinking. I cautiously began looking for day job opportunities or something to bring in a […]

How I get into the Christmas spirit every year

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 15:09:17 +0000

Every year, my friends and I watch as many Christmas movies as we can between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have an elaborate system to nominate and veto movies until we have three movies to choose from, then we vote for our favorite. It gets pretty crazy with people forming alliances and using complicated strategies to […]

If you’re curious about how I do things behind the scenes, this is for you 🙂 How my business works My income comes from two primary sources: Salary Negotiation Coaching […]

Tough career advice over lunch at a cheap BBQ joint

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 20:02:37 +0000

“What are you doing for lunch today? Wanna go to Sonny’s?” I was a Project Manager on a team of about 8 people at a company of about 30 people. Still, it was a pretty big surprise that my boss wanted to go get cheap BBQ for lunch. I had been doing pretty well, impressing […]
