Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me This? One Thing I Wish I’d Known Sooner

A few weeks ago, I got the worst text of my life.

My dad, who had seemed to be in good health, passed out cold in a bank. He was rushed to the ER. They discovered his kidneys were failing.

To say the past few weeks have been challenging is an understatement.

I’m here with him and my mom now. He’s on the mend but he’s still got quite a road in front of him with surgery, treatments, etc. (And yes, we’ll take all the prayers and healing vibes you’re willing to send.)

Not only do I run an education based business myself, but I personally invest a substantial amount of time and money in my own ongoing education. I’m a lifelong learner and a lot of times, I’m buying some learning program online.

So I see this “fear” about selling information online in the age of “free everything!” from all perspectives.

That’s why I wanted to share 6 reasons most of us would rather pay you than learn for free online.

5 Steps To Change Your Life And Make It Stick

Sometimes people say something that just really hits home.

That’s what I felt when my friend Todd and I first talked about the biology of change.

Meaning, what actually happens inside our bodies on a cellular level when we consciously work to form new positive habits.

He shared ideas from his work with athletes (from Olympians to passionate amateurs) that helped me better understand why some people successfully form new habits, and others seem to slip back into old patterns again and again.

It’s fascinating stuff.

If you’ve ever struggled to change your life — and make it stick, you’re going to love today’s episode.
