I’m trying to build this course and it’s stressing me out. I’ve been in the game so f*cking long that I know what looks good and it’s paralyzing me.

I can tell I’ve been spending unnecessary amounts of time on things that don’t necessarily matter right now. (Branding, designs, etc)

I DO think it’s important to dedicate some time to that stuff, but I am spending far too long on it. And then I start stressing about it.

And then I go back and rework something that I already “finished”.

And then another.

And another.

I just need to get…


It feels good to build something. It feels good to be barreling towards a goal.

I’m excited again. And I’m excited about being excited again. 🙂

I’ve been building out an asset inside nurturely. GHL calls it a snapshot. Basically, I want to be able to give an entirely automated lead generation machine to anyone who buys our course + purchases a saas subscription.

I want this to feel like they’re getting hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of value every single month.

I’ve been working hard on it this last week and, today, I don’t think I’ll be getting much done. I’m heading to Hemlock in a couple hours (Chris’s wedding weekend). I’ve gotta pack some stuff up, get a haircut, and play some tennis today yet too. I definitely need a few more pocket accountability points this week and tennis is going to help beautifully lol.


Today, I’m choosing to start my day brimming with energy and joy.

Every morning when I wake up, I’m given a choice. I get to decide how my day is…


It’s my mom. Lol

This is not my mom

Custom Maids is nurturely’s first client

I’m actually very excited about this… that pic above is a screengrab from a movie and if you can’t tell me which movie it is, idk how I’ll be able to explain it. Anyway, I offered to tackle a few projects at Custom Maids and she agreed.

Moving on.

I need to dive headfirst into this industry [cleaning business industry] if I want to make any kind of fulfilling impact. I won’t be able to understand the deep problems that need to be fixed unless I immerse myself in it. I need to curate a specific


There are endless use cases nurturely has for any kind of local business—especially service-based businesses.

My “SaaS company” is really a no-code, white-label software platform. Anyone can sign up and start a “software company” with this one. Since anyone can do this, it’s going to be very tricky to differentiate. There are already thousands and thousands of competitors. I just happen to think there is enough room in the market for me to grab a slice no matter the competition. …


Thoughts:

September 2nd, 2021 is Day #3 for me so I thought I’d do a little check-in and show you what I’ve been up to. Yesterday, I got the skeleton of my website up and running (no, not officially launched yet).

I’m working on the copy + design of the homepage and, right now, it just has a ton of dummy content. It’s a very rough draft at this point. I’m using DropFunnels to build my website. …


  • Americans in Afghanistan were told nine times by the US Embassy to evacuate. There were even offers to pay for airfare. Still, they did not leave. Why?
  • More than 127,000+ people were rescued from Afghanistan in the biggest airlift in United States history. There were something like 15,000 Americans in Afghanistan on August 17th. Between 100–200 remain after the last flight out of Kabul. Why did those 100–200 stay? Were they left behind? Or did they choose to stay?
  • Today is August 31st—the deadline for the evacuation. Over 1,100 Americans died this week. Not in Afghanistan though; in Florida. From…

Yes, really. I’m going to be launching a software company. It’s not entirely original, but I’m going to make it unique to me and my vision.

Long story short, it’s white-label software. But I believe it fills a serious need that I can capitalize on. I’m able to work towards my own goals while filling a gap in small, local businesses. Lead generation + nurturing.

The first industry I’m going after is residential cleaning.

I’m in quite a few different Facebook groups and I see a constant theme — people don’t know how to effectively generate leads for their own…


I’m absolutely surrounded by people suggesting I build a course and create optionality for myself.

To be honest, I’m not even 100% sure I know what optionality means. But, given the context, I think it’s ultimately a nice way of taking control of your life.

My goal is to get people to become customers of my software company.

Oh yeah btw, I’m building a software company.

It’s white-labeled software, but it’s software at the end of the day.

But I’m building a course that helps me sell this software. I am building the thing (my course) that sells the thing


This stupid little spreadsheet has helped me build better habits faster than I’ve ever been able to before

Seriously, it’s just a spreadsheet built on Google Sheets.

When I sit back and think about why this works for me, it boils down to me owning a number that is only mine. I get to see a tangible number that reflects my output for the week.

I started with 4 pillars. 4 areas where I wanted to build better habits for myself and make sure I stay improving.

  • Career
  • Health
  • Investing
  • Publishing

And then I’ve since added:

  • Social media
  • Learning

They’re listed in the order they were added to the spreadsheet.

My Career pillar has needed a readjustment for…
