New Article Up on DatingNews.com

Hi all… It’s been a long time since I updated the blog. I’ve been super busy with my other companies but I finally have a update worth sharing. My friend Hayley Matthews from Datingnews.com just wrote a nice article about my coaching services, so I wanted to give her a quick shoutout. She also mentions…


The #1 Reason Why Diet & Exercise Programs Let You Down

I wanted to introduce you to someone who’s made a big impact in my life, as well as teach you some things about nutrition that you’ve probably never heard before.   This will be a long read, so if you don’t have the time right now, just go check out this website instead:   http://performafuelnutrition.com…


What I’ve Been Up To

Hi all… I wanted to post another quick update so it doesn’t look like I disappeared of the face of the Earth. 🙂   Back in June of ’16, I launched my online hypnosis school, which I’ve been working on day and night for over a year. Thankfully, it’s been an incredible success and has…


Hypnosis Seminar Dates Announced

Interested in learning how to hypnotize others? Then come train with me in NYC.


The #1 Predictor of Longevity

Recently, a team of Stanford researchers concluded an 80 year-long study on longevity. What they discovered was quite shocking.   According to their research, stress doesn’t necessarily shorten your lifespan, marriage isn’t a golden ticket to old age and, surprisingly, the “don’t worry, be happy” crowd died the earliest.   But guess what they found…


The Biggest Problem With The Life Coaching Industry

  I wanted to let you in on something about my industry that’s a bit shady… something you’ll have to watch out for if you’re looking to work with a coach or therapist….


How To Quickly Move On From What’s Holding You Back

  I was recently interviewed in the March issue of Cosmopolitan about how to get over past hurts and move on with your life. The article, however, was a bit disappointing since they only used about 5 minutes worth of the 30 minute interview. I’m fully aware of their space constraints but since the published tips…

Why EVERYONE Needs a Life Coach

  As I’m sure you already know, every superstar athlete, A-list actor and celebrity musician has a team of coaches invested in their results. Coaching is such an integral part of the success process and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a high-achiever who doesn’t attribute at least some of their success to coaching from a…


Does Fake It Till You Make It Really Work?

Many of my clients have voiced objections to “faking it until you make it.” Most say things like “I don’t want to be fake” or “I tried it but I just felt stupid.” While these are valid concerns, they are still terrible excuses for not equipping yourself with a simple (and very useful) personal development tool….


The Limitless Home Study Course Is Finally Here!

I’m very proud to say that my new home study course is finally available. “Limitless” is a jam-packed compilation of the very best techniques, strategies and killer advice I’ve learned over the last 15 years I’ve spent in the self-help field. I’ve named it after the movie because it’s the next best thing to popping NZT without the horrific side-effects….


Happy Thanksgiving!

To me, the spirit of Thanksgiving goes way beyond “awesome! a day off from work!”   It’s a time of reflection… of looking at your life in a different way.   For at least one day out of 365, tell that little voice in your head that’s always whining about what you don’t have and…


What Have You Done For Yourself Lately?

As an authority on personal change, my clients frequently inquire about my own accomplishments and daily challenges. I’m always glad when this subject comes up because I believe in leading by example. If your coach’s personal life is a mess (or just plain stagnant) then you might want to find someone who walks their talk….


Faking Celebrity Status = More Dates?

I came across this very interesting video prank on youtube that showcases an interesting quirk of human nature. It’s no surprise that women are highly likely to be attracted to “high status men” (professional athletes, movie stars, musicians, etc) and would typically jump at the chance to be courted by one of these guys. But…


A Daily Dose Of Inspiration

A few nights ago, I had the pleasure of spending time with a former client who was back in town for a couple of days. Leslie’s story is pretty remarkable and I’d like to share it in the hopes it will motivate and inspire you.   Back when she came to me, Leslie was struggling…


The Stop Sign Technique

Hey there,   Today I’d like to share with you one of my favorite techniques for battling stress and negativity. I learned this technique many years ago from one of my mentors, Mark Cunningham, and have found it to be an invaluable tool for changing negative thinking patterns. You can use this simple exercise to train…


Emotional Control 101 (part 1)

(This post is part 1 of a multi-part series on emotional control techniques.)   If you’re like me, more often than not, you find that your stress levels reach stratospheric proportions. At these times, it’s incredibly helpful to have a set of strategies you can use to calm the raging demons inside you. Today, I’ll be…


What The Heck Is The McGurk Effect?

I stumbled across an interesting video on youtube that I’d like to share with you guys. It demonstrates how our brain occasionally plays tricks on us and distorts the information that we perceive with our five senses.   In this short clip, you’ll discover that sometimes what we think we’re hearing doesn’t match up to…


Dating Coach Gets Dumped On Valentine’s Day

If you were following my rants and raves last year around this time, then you’re well aware of how much I dislike the pseudo-holiday known as Valentine’s Day. Sure, I could go on and on and rehash my gripes but my perspective hasn’t changed one bit since last year. What HAS changed, however, is the…


How To Plan A New Year’s Win

A couple of weeks ago I posted my top New Year’s Resolution strategies and urged all of you to start putting them into action. Some of you went ahead and sent in your plans for 2011 and I wanted to thank you for sharing. You guys think real big… I love it.   My awesome friend Jessica did…


New Year’s Win or New Year’s Fail?

2011 is almost here and it’s time for yet another round of New Year’s resolutions.  The question is… will you be one of the few people who actually sticks to their plan and makes a positive, permanent change or will your efforts fall into the fail pile along with millions of others? If you’re serious…


Happy Holidays!

I recently fell in love with egg nog made with raw milk and I’m guzzling it by the gallon today. Luckily, Uncle Tony hasn’t spiked it yet or I’d be typing this from the ER. 🙂 All kidding aside, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown me over…


How To Clean Your Fruits & Veggies

Hey guys… As I mentioned in a previous post, I was recently introduced to the Paleo Diet and since then, have been working hard on incorporating more vegetables into my daily meals. But I have to say…. veggies are friggen expensive – especially if you go organic (which I highly recommend). But if you choose…


A Hidden Cause Of High Blood Pressure

I’ve been saying for years that salt is NOT the enemy when it comes to high blood pressure. In fact, hypertension sufferers who drastically reduce the amount of salt in their diets are increasing their risk of serious health problems….


Team Magnificent’s Super Smoothie

Lately, I’ve been getting lots of questions about my diet and lifestyle. Some of you know that I had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma when I was 19 and this led me to become extremely health conscious. Believe me… after battling cancer once, you never want it to come back….
