We Are The Culture Makers

What’s a Culture Maker? You don’t have to have a fancy title or an artsy career to be a culture-maker (but you can if you want to!). When you get brave and go first and...

Care is a 4-letter word. So is help.

Caregiving isn’t only about what we do for each other in times of crisis. It’s not only needed when there’s a diagnosis.It’s what we need to rise, together.

Women are jealous, women pull up the ladder. Lies.

Women are jealous? Women pull up the ladder? Balderdash. Nearly every one of my accomplishments can be traced back to the women in my life.

Don’t (Just) Unfriend Them

Preaching to the converted is pleasant but unproductive. In the name of justice, in the name of love, keep talking with people who are getting it wrong.

Every week, I send you a

Sunday Love Letter

I write them so that…

Are you in?

Once upon a time, many years ago, I bought a how-to-write-a-sales page course from Tara McMullin (@tara_mcmullin).⁠
⁠
Here's what I still remember about that course: She explained that writing sales pages is easy & fast...⁠
⁠
...as long as you do the pre-thinking and pre-work. ⁠
⁠
***⁠
⁠
Another time, I took a sales-writing course from Ramit Sethi. ⁠
⁠
He walked us through his team's process for writing sales pages and I immediately realized that they do a STUNNING amount of research & pre-thinking to get ready to write the sales page. ⁠
⁠
The better the thinking & pre-work, the more effective the sales page & result$.⁠
⁠
***⁠
⁠
I also witnessed this in the work of Rachel Rodgers (@rachrodgersesq). ⁠
⁠
In one of her courses, she assigned a 2-page worksheet that took me 3 WEEKS to get HALF-WAY through.⁠
⁠
***⁠
⁠
All of these people run admirable, robust & profitable businesses.⁠
⁠
IMHO, they're not achieving those results because of hacks or tactics; they're getting those results because of deep-thinking, dot-connecting, research & pre-work.⁠
⁠
You know, overthinking it.⁠
⁠
***⁠
⁠
The phrase "thought leader" is revealing.⁠
⁠
What do we need to lead? THOUGHTS.⁠
⁠
***⁠
⁠
I think most of instinctively know that deep-thinking is important for the creation of film scripts, books, philosophy, science, paintings.⁠
⁠
I'm not so sure we're realizing how ESSENTIAL deep-thinking is to our business & career success, too.⁠
⁠
Action without deep thinking is just activity. (Hello, 90% of social media!)⁠
⁠
But action grounded in deep thinking is IMPACT.⁠
⁠
Our job, then, is to USE our default to overthinking everything as a source of power in our businesses.⁠
⁠
That means connecting the dots from our thoughts --> strategies ---> processes...and formalizing all of that into saleable frameworks & models.⁠
⁠
Dear Overthinker, we were MADE for this game.⁠
