"But I hope you’ll remember, during those times of doubt and frustration, that there is nothing naïve about your impulse to change the world. Because all it takes is one act of service — one blow against injustice — to send forth what Robert Kennedy called that tiny ripple of hope. That’s what changes the world. That one act." - Barack Obama

Regardless of political views, this advice can resonate with anyone thinking about taking on the entrepreneurial journey. 

If you're passionate. If you have something to say. If you have something you need to do. 

Stop hesitating and go do it. 

People who take this kind of action end up either where they wanted to be or somewhere closer. 

The opposite means stagnation. 

Ask yourself the tough question: "Do I want to be at this level for the rest of my life?". If not, take that one act. Create that tiny ripple of hope. And change the world. 🌎👁

What Are Personal Brands? & Why Should Anyone Care?

In today’s competitive business world, you need to be able to understand what it is that you do that is unique and why.

Being able to communicate that in a really short, clear, and engaging way to anyone will allow you to skip the small talk and make real authentic connections with people.

A lot of the people you’ll be connecting with may bring you opportunities you wouldn't have found otherwise.  

BUT, in order to stand out, you need to know what it is that you—and only you—can do.

Imagine if everyone you’ve ever spoken to knew what you’re great at and passionate about?!  Think of all the interesting stories and opportunities you would’ve been introduced to.



We’ve all been there: stuck on an airplane next to someone who is crowding in your space, ignoring the basic rules of human etiquette or decency.  

Our reaction? 

We stew. We think that staring daggers at them will do something about the situation. We compose a letter in our head to the airline. We text a friend to complain. 

We tell ourselves this is a way of coping, but is it really?  Because we’re just getting angrier the more we think.  

Marcus’s advice is basically this: Either say something (nicely) or let it go. 



 “Waste No More Time Arguing What A Good Man Should Be. Be One.” 

These words, written by Marcus Aurelius nearly two millennia ago, cut to the core of what it means to live a good life - it isn’t what we say that defines our character, it’s what we do. 

Today, in a society obsessed with content, outrage, and drama, it’s easy to get lost in the echo chamber of the debate of what’s “better.”

We can have endless discussions about what’s right and wrong.

Only one guarantees an impact.
