The Secrets to Success, Revealed – and validated statistically!

So, guess what? All that stuff that you’re told to do that will increase your chances of being successful? All those “secrets to success”? Do them. Well, most of them. We’ve got the statistics to prove it. In March 2012 we surveyed 149 people about their “success habits” in an attempt to identify whether any of these commonly accepted “secrets of success” actually do correlate to success. Expressed differently, are these habits linked in any …

Productive Marketing: Let the Number Crunching Begin!

The results of our Productive Marketing Survey are in! We’re crunching the numbers as you read this; I’ve re-lived my school days talking with my statistician about regressions, correlations and confidence intervals. Yeah, you don’t have to worry about any of that stuff, fortunately. You’re gonna get all that normally-distributed goodness served up in easily-digestible portions. Everyone who participated had lots to say about their success habits and their own success – thanks to everyone …

Critical habits to KILL it as an Entrepreneur? (How to be Effective)

In my recent post Staying Sane as a New Parent and Business Owner, I shared how my life changed after becoming a father and how it impacted my business. What I didn’t share was how productivity-obsessed I was forced to become as a result. I kept on asking, how can I squeeze more juice out of 20 minutes? How can I be a mean, lean, execution machine? How can I be more effective? If you’re …

Staying Sane as a New Working Parent

Hi, I’m Peter. You know, Peter. Peter Vogopoulos. The other guy from Mirasee? *Sigh* One of the wonderful things about being part of Mirasee is connecting with awesome people who like what we do. When I say “Peter Vogopoulos” they usually say “hello”. When they hear “Mirasee”, their (virtual) faces light up and they say “Oh yeah, Danny Iny! I know him… I love his stuff. What was your name again?” Truthfully, it doesn’t bother …

Phew, what a year it’s been!

It’s been a whirlwind of a year. There were some really great moments, like my wedding, and the launch of my new book. There were also some rough moments, like losing out on the teaching position that I really wanted. And there were some interesting moments, like when Eugene Farber dubbed me the Freddy Krueger of Blogging. All in all, it’s been a great year, but I promise you one thing: next year will be …

After the wedding: "Why am I doing this, anyway?"

So I got married. The wedding was one of the most beautiful, magical nights of our lives. Within a couple of days, all of our friends and families had scattered back to their respective corners of the globe, and we had only a couple of days to recover and adjust before heading off for our honeymoon. It was the ultimate slacker vacation – a week at a resort where my wife and I (I’m practicing …

Our Magical Hin-Jew Wedding

I’m married! It’s part exciting, part surreal, and part exactly the same. And I couldn’t be happier. 🙂 The whole thing was a bit of a whirlwind. We spent months and months planning this day, and it was absolutely magical – and I don’t recall ever using that word to describe an experience before! Within a few days of the wedding, family and friends had spread back to their respective corners of the globe, and …

A Post for My Wedding Day?

I’m getting married today. And on my wedding day, it’s time for a post to be published. I could write about how excited I am to get married. How excited I am about the honeymoon. I could write about the disastrous bachelor party that I had a couple of nights ago, and the lessons that I learned from it. I could even stick to the knitting and publish a long overdue Best of the Web …

Take Action: Shit or Get Off the Pot Already!

A few years ago, back when I decided I wanted to help small business owners prosper through exceptional marketing and small business coaching, I signed myself into a business coaching alliance. One of the great benefits of this alliance was that it paired up the new coaching in a “buddy system”. I was paired up with “Mike”. As “buddies” we would call each other every week and check our progress. It was during one of …
