Why is this important? Building your personal brand is more crucial than ever. In today's highly competitive, AI-driven world, it not only differentiates you from a growing number of professionals but...

Issue # 93 | June 4th, 2024 Presented by Hostinger Hi, it's Pat! Today, I want to share a simple exercise to help you make your messages clearer and more impactful.

The science (and truth) about sharing your goals

Issue # 92 | May 28th, 2024 Presented by ThriveCart Hi, it's Pat! Are you more likely to succeed if you share your goals with others, or keep them to yourself? I’ve always wondered what the right answer is. On one hand, public accountability seems important. On the other, does sharing our goals trick our minds into believing we’re making progress when we’re really not? Well, it turns out both are true. I’ve recently discovered that there’s a very specific way to share your goals that can mean...

Issue # 91 | May 21st, 2024 Presented by Premium Ghostwriting Blueprint Hi, it's Pat! I’ve learned a lot about starting and running a business over the past 15 years. Ironically, none of that knowledge has proven as useful as the strategic questions I’ve learned to ask at key moments.

One question you may have heard me discuss a lot comes from Tim...

It symbolized prestige and access to knowledge — because back then, knowledge really was power. We all grew up in a world where the more you knew, the further you could go.

The video trend we all wanted is here!

Issue # 89 | May 7th, 2024 Presented by RYSE Hi, it's Pat! I know what you might be thinking: “Oh great — yet another video trend.” But don’t worry! This isn’t some new fancy method or style that’s going to require you to do more work. In fact, it’s the opposite. It’s the way things should have been from the start, and now it’s here. If you create videos online, or if you’ve been hesitant to hit record because it feels too hard or time-consuming, then this one’s for you. It’s time to get...
