The quality of the questions we ask ourselves are directly related to the quality of our lives. Tony Robbins said something like that once at 3am on my TV, and I took note at how true that really is. (mostly because i was asking myself whether I wanted a bottle of red – or white – to go with my day old dominoes pizza, at that very moment, and everyone knows only dummies and posers drink white wine with cold pizza)

So red it is.

Here is the thing though. The art of asking empowering questions WILL change your life. The more empowering the questions – the more OPEN ended the questions, the more fungible and flexible and more associative I become, the more the answers I need to hear, seem to appear.

I credit that with lots of meditation, an unusual amount of crying for a grown adult, and a bad mushroom psychedelic experience I had late last year.

In all seriousness?

The more I ask questions like these, of myself – and of others – my content, my courses, my communities – my inspired imaginary ideas and otherwise, the more clarity I cultivate about what I can offer, who I can serve, how they will transform, what I do well, and how my words (and work) can truly change the world.

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I'm a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he's super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says " it's always NOW" when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You're making me nervous.
