As small business owners, there is no separation between business and life – it’s all life.I know there is little time to spend on growing your business because you’re spending all time doing business.

That’s why I created the Online Business Cohort and Online Business Learning Center. They’re where we can gather, get honest feedback, learn fast and efficiently, implement quickly and automate processes to maximize the return on our efforts.  Because in the end, doing better business leads to a happier life.

I’ve never met a person who said they were as happy as they can be and that’s because there is always work to do. Being happier comes from making small daily changes to how we think, move, play, connect, and, yes, work.

That’s why I wrote Embracing Happy and The Life Lab (coming soon). I wanted to provide scientifically-back tools and strategies that helped transformed my life from surface happy to truly happy. Because in the end, living a happier life leads to doing better business.
