For What Am I Thankful?

It’s Thanksgiving Day and I’m at an airport. I’ve been up since 2:45a local time. I am traveling for work. But I am not complaining because I love doing what I do. I love the impact that I’m making through business. And I have wanderlust, so I love any chance I have to get in a car or on a plane. For many years, my brother and sisters have compared me to Nicholas Cage’s character …

Welcome to 2019!

What Have I Been Doing? It’s interesting how many people are introspective at the end of each year. It’s also interesting how so many people develop corresponding “resolutions” because of that introspection.  According to the Washington Post, 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. That, to me, is a positive. (There is ample evidence that shows that less than 3% of Americans actually write down their goals.) However, according to an old Forbes article, “Just …

Time Management Issues: Email

“The Death of Email” is something that’s been foretold for over 10 years now. And whether you love it or hate it, email is not going anywhere. Not any time soon, however. There are other tools that have come along and tried to supplant email, but at this point, these programs are merely supplemental tools. Albeit, very good tools. We use email for external communications. For internal communications and collaboration, there are 2 main tools …

Stealing Medicine Back

  Medicine has been stolen. It has been hijacked. And we need to steal it back! Is it really that bad? We think it is much worse than people realize. For example, there are advances in regenerative medicine (where we are building our impact capitalist business, RHM) that are being confined and locked in to this hijacked model. And that will ultimately hurt patients and physicians seeking to make life better. So, who stole it? …

Build the Process before you can Trust the Process

No Matter How Difficult, We Must Trust the Process Instead of trying to see the end, embrace the current struggle, create a process and follow it. Starting a new business can be very easy. Developing and growing a business is very hard. Especially if you don’t have a process to follow. “Trust the Process” is a phrase that great coaches tell their players, fans, and the media. But what does this mean? It means having …

Learning from the Past to Impact the Future

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana Welcome to 2018! I don’t know about you, but I am very excited to put 2017 in the past and move on to making an impact on 2018 and beyond. About 18 months ago, I went to a conference at the Acton Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The keynote speaker, originally from Senegal, spoke about how she was trying to preserve …

Tips for Entrepreneurs

I was very excited to find out that the school that my daughter attends is hosting an “Entrepreneurship competition.” While it is essentially a business plan competition, the students will get judged on their ideas and business plan. However, the young entrepreneurs will earn extra points if their business is already operational by the time the judging starts. Recently, I was asked to speak to these budding entrepreneurs. Here are the highlights of the advice …

Don’t Let The Doubters Grind You Down

As humans, we can either be driven on or driven down by those who doubt us. Unfortunately, if we’re not careful, we can allow doubts to paralyze and keep us from doing what we need to do. Fortunately, we have the ability to channel doubts to do great things. I’m no different. I am a very confident person, in general, but sometimes I am gripped with doubt. However, as corny as it may seem, remembering …

Why Did We Start Impact Capitalist?

I was once asked why I felt that there was a need to be an impact capitalist rather than just a capitalist. Unfortunately, most people do not understand the true power of capitalism. And while I am currently working on a blog post (maybe a white paper) that explains my evolution toward becoming an impact capitalist, the name was very strategically chosen and the reasons are very well thought out. I call myself an “impact …
