You’re Not Ready to Share

When answering a question, do you ever feel like you need 20+ minutes of their undivided attention to fully answer the question? Then, once you get it all out of your brain, you feel like you shouldn’t of said any of that. This is a sign that you’re not ready to share. The info is […]

Start With Why…Not

Alright, time to flip something on its head and set you free. I’ve always loved Simon Sinek’s, “Start with Why”. I think it revolutionized our thinking around marketing and creating a business mission and direction. Start with why…not what, or how. People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. MLK – […]

Writers’ Block? No Such Thing…

Unfortunately, one can never overcome writers’ block. You’re forever blocked! Just kidding…kinda. The only way to “overcome” writers block is to write. Just start writing whatever you want until things start to flow. Think of your writing as an old truck in the cold mountains. The less you drive it, the harder it is to […]

Who Cares!

When it comes to your brand, assume nobody knows what the f*ck you’re talking about. Brand builders assume everyone understands their brand. Why wouldn’t they, it’s sooooo important right? In reality, most people don’t give a hoot. There are far more interesting and entertaining things to consume online than your little attempt to make an […]

If thinking is causing you anxiety, more thinking ain’t the solution. Keeping this short so you don’t start overthinking thinking… As a “thinking addict,” I frequently think myself into oblivion.

Be useful…

I’m watching the series “Arnold” on netflix. It’s about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s life. I’m really enjoying it. He grew up in the tiny village of Thal, just outside of Graz, Austria. How did he go from this tiny town to becoming…well, Arnold. I recommend watching the series, but it’s kind of all boiled down to him […]

Yeah yeah yeah, I know

Did you know that if you stopped procrastinating, overcomplicating, planning, thinking, learning, consuming, quitting, and just started doing consistently, you’d figure it all out. If you do, it’s only a matter of time before all the answers rise to the top and things become crystal clear. “Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know Miles…I didn’t know I […]

Are you overdesigning?

Design is hard. Overdesign is easy. Design is to create, fashion, execute, or construct according to plan. But we often think of design as “cool looking graphics.” Something can look really cool, but leave you overwhelmed or confused. The problem I see today is not a lack of design, but too much design. Over-designed websites […]

It really is that simple

You know what it feels like to be in momentum. You’re happy, things are flowing, clients, money, and opportunities are coming your way without you even doing anything. It’s fun and easy. Then, it goes away. You lose a client, you run low on money, you make a bad call, you get lazy and screw […]
