Throw away the squirrel food
I wrote Follow You Anywhere in 9 days, or did I? When people ask me, "Wait, how long?" I usually tell them ten years. That's how long it took to gather and learn the lessons I share in the book.
This month, people are talking about the new UFC featherweight champ, Conor McGregor. He knocked out the former champ in 13 seconds. How does a guy conquer a division in 13 seconds? I think it's similar to writing a book in 9 days.

16 Days of Speaking, Consulting, Cruising & Reflecting
Day 1 of 16 on the road. Nothing like getting 3,000 miles from home and realizing what you forgot to take care of before you left. Also, I miss Wyatt already. Also, super excited for this trip. Also, 16 days is a long time. Also, SEX/K got the upgrade.
