Nervous System Mastery (November Cohort)
I’ve been putting a lot more emphasis lately on the body over the mind.
In the West we’re so trained to live in heads.
This is the underlying reason you see people like Wim Hof and the cold-plunges get so popular. They are effective ways at shocking us out of our normal thinking patterns.
Did you know that the Wim Hof / Ice Plunge actually shifts where the blood flow in your body and brain go?
It’s possible that part of this evolution shifts to our nervous systems.
Jonny Miller has an upcoming cohort teaching this topic and skillset.
Customer Led Growth (early access)
One thing I see with clients all of the time is that they face down months for revenue, almost at random. Figuring out how to create steady growth is always a challenge when you’re just getting your business up and running.
Gia and Claire have been in the marketing game for a long time and I’ve worked with Claire in the past. They’re both super helpful to startups and also those learning marketing at the early stages of growth.
They have a new book that will show you how to…
1. Learn from your best customers and turn data into insight
2. Map and measure your customer's experience
3. Find, and align on, your company's biggest levers for growth
I’m getting totally into a new form of ASMR (I never thought I’d say that) which relates to home-office setups. I’ve got a super mood board built out for what a future home office could be. Part of the trend is a new type of cozy, colorful-cozy.
These Diffusers from Seasons don’t need water and look stylish on your desk.
Daily Journal Habits:
Day One App (Mac/iPhone)
I wanted something simple where I could record life’s memories, even the simple ones. Day One is incredibly simple and has gotten me into an almost daily habit.
One side-effect is that I think journaling helps with your memory. I.e. having notes from the past helps you recollect what that day/time/moment was like.
P.S. I also highlight talented specialists who help entrepreneurs. Such as…
A startup deck designer who’s helped 80+ startups
A recruiter who’s worked with 100 thieves and Amari.
A freelance designer who helps brands go from 0-1 (Worked with Milk Bar, Mirror, etc.)
