My Health Scare, A Video and Where We Go From Here

While we were coming home from a teaching, speaking, book-signing trip in Round Top, Texas, my left eye went black/blind and I had only a small sliver of vision left as we were leaving Amarillo. Kelly and the kids were with me and Kelly was driving. I had been feeling extremely run down at this point in our two-week trip and we were all eager to get home. Instead of home, we turned around and headed to the emergency room in …

I promise you that it shows in what you put out into the world. If you want to create art that evokes emotion and feeling then I hope you will join me in Storytellers & Mavericks. When I create an online course it is because I have no other choice but to dive …

20th Anniversary Sale | 40% Off One Online Course

It was a Friday night in Washington, DC in February of 1998. I had worked late and I was supposed to meet up with friends in a local brewery.

I quickly ordered the book, The Power of Consistency, by Weldon Long, which was already a New York Times bestseller. I devoured the book and as I did I was highlighting and adding my own notes throughout the whole book.  Wally was writing and sharing so many of the …
