I'm Launching my new Podcast!!!! - 🎉 Meet Trust Cast. 🎉
I believe that THE most important things in business are relationships and trust.
We're surrounded by fake connections and vanity metrics, but REAL genuine connections are what really matter.
I'm really excited to share this with the world. It's been in the works for months now, and I can't wait to see what you think.
1. Please give it a listen and send any feedback my way.
2. Please subscribe and give the show a rating.
3. I'm looking for guests. If you are a marketing professional that cares about relationships, trust, and authenticity, please reach out.

Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.
In a recent Self Improvement Daily episode, Brian Ford talked with Jim Fortinabout the power of identity. (A powerful podcast episode. Link in the comments)
A non smoker isn’t even tempted if someone asks them to smoke. Why? Because it’s part of their identity.
How many times have you heard “I don’t smoke.”
They don’t even have to decide because they identify as a non smoker.
🤔 What behaviors do you want to get rid of or create?
⭐️ Now decide what identity you need to adopt to become who you want to be.
An identity that has meant a lot to me is my identity as a child of God.
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” - Romans 8:16-17
Think about it. You are a literal son or daughter of the most powerful being. You are his heir. You are important. You have an infinite potential.
Don’t ever forget it.
Here’s a link to a music video that my little brother did. It has a powerful message. And my little family is in it.

I've been thinking a lot about friction lately. Especially as I'm working from home and have more distractions than ever before.
Friction is simply a tool in our toolbox. Are you using it to your advantage?
⏫ We should increase friction in the things we want to stop doing. (example: move distracting apps to a distant page and folder on your phone).
⏬ We should decrease friction for the things we want to do more (example: I've started putting a book next to my bed so I read more often).
These ideas are not my own :) Thanks to Nir Eyal and his book, Indistractible, for helping me think about this.
