I’ve been keeping secrets

Published 3 months ago • 1 min read

I couldn’t think of a good opening here. So I’ll just get to the point:

  • I drank alcohol every night for 10 years
  • I was fired from three jobs within a 6 year span
  • I was 40 pounds overweight and pre-diabetic

Thankfully, with the support of my wife and a strong belief that my best days were still ahead of me, things have changed.

  • I stopped drinking alcohol in 2015
  • I’m the managing director of an agency and a paid content creator
  • I recently ran 1 mile, did 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 air squats and ran another mile, all while wearing a 20lb vest

So, where was the turning point? How did I pivot?

I’ve shared a lot with you in the past, but it’s time to go deeper.

Because I know learning from your mistakes makes them a thing of the past.

They won’t distract from being present in the current moment – or continue to plague you in the future.

That’s why I’m telling my full story, for the first time, in a documentary produced by Convertkit.

And let me be clear: This isn’t comfortable for me.

The majority of my friends and family will be shocked at what I’ve revealed.

My children will eventually discover a dark side of their father they’ve never witnessed.

And fortunately, they never will.

Because learning from your mistakes makes them a thing of the past.

So I invite you to learn more about my journey by watching this brief documentary.

My hope is that it will give you the motivation to push through obstacles, take on new challenges and feel more confident in sharing your unique experiences as well.

I appreciate the support you've provided along the way and look forward to supporting you as you continue your journey as well.

Based on your response to last week’s newsletter, I’m coming at you with another fast and powerful way to leverage ChatGPT and increase your revenue. Instead of just asking ChatGPT to create your content, you should also ask it to critique your content. Estimated reading time: 2.5 minutes In the example below I shared a pitch deck for my agency as a PDF document. Then, I asked ChatGPT the following: “I do sales for my company and will share this document with potential clients. Can you share...

Hi There, This week we're going to revisit my best tip on how to find clients. The reason for this rerun? For one thing, my newsletter has more than doubled since I last shared this advice – so this will be new to most of you! The other big reason is because I've been busy working toward the launch of my new podcast, Elevate and Expand. The goal of the podcast is to provide entrepreneurs with the guidance, accountability, and community that they need to grow a successful business. We just...

I'm trying something different with this issue and it would be great to hear your feedback. At times it easier for me so explain tactics by creating a video as opposed to writing out the whole process. But before we get started, a quick heads up: On Thursday, my buddy Matt Ragland and I are hosting a webinar on how to grow your newsletter on autopilot (in the next 7 days). We'll cover how to create a lead magnet that works, designing a landing page that converts, how to generate revenue with...
