What I’m Doing Now

I just published the 10th anniversary edition of The Personal MBA, so I'm having a lot of conversations about business and entrepreneurship on various podcasts.

Updates and Appearances

Whenever I have a significant update or make an appearance on a podcast, media, or website, I post it on this site. You can find the most recent at the top of each page.

Advising, Consulting, and Coaching

I'm open to a small number of advising, consulting, and coaching engagements. If you're interested, you can book a session here.

Outside of Work

Aside from work, I'm currently enjoying:

  • Strength training, which includes resistance bands, kettlebells, steel mace, and jumprope workouts for general strength and well-being.
  • Web application programming, so I can build a "robot army" of useful systems for my business.
  • Tabletop roleplaying games: I'm DMing a weekly Dungeons & Dragons Curse of Strahd game for a few close friends.

Things I'm Looking Forward To

Once the Plague Times are behind us, I'm looking forward to getting back to:

  • Aikido, to improve balance, coordination, and proprioceptive skills. I'm currently 4th kyu (USAF), studying under Victor Hung Sensei, Aikido of Colorado.

This is a "Now" page. Fun tidbit: a few years ago, Derek Sivers saw my old contact/status page, liked it, riffed on it, turned it into his own thing, and started a little movement. I liked his idea better than my own, so now my contact page has turned into a Now page. It's funny how ideas grow, shift, change, and improve over time – it's one of my favorite things about the internet.
