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…

Are All “Free” Products Worthless?

  Have you ever asked yourself this question? I certainly have since I’ve been let down MANY times in the past.   I bring this up because I have an incredible gift for you today that’s (you guessed it) absolutely free. So please put your skepticism about “free” products aside because if you’re looking to make some major…


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….


Another Client Loses Over 150lbs!

  I wanted to share another success story that will inspire you to reach your goals in 2013. Ahmed (or Mickey as he prefers to be called by friends and family) started working with me less than two years ago. During our time together he has made some absolutely astonishing progress. I won’t bore you…


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…


Oh Crap… It Doesn’t Work…

One of the issues that’s been coming up a lot lately for my clients is bedroom-specific performance anxiety. For men, not being able to perform on command scares the crap out of them which is understandable considering their virility is as closely tied to their sense of self-worth as their incomes (and possibly more so)….


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…


Q&A: I Was Betrayed!

 Have you ever been betrayed by an ex? Hurts pretty bad doesn’t it?  The good news is, there’s a way to eliminate the pain of a betrayal and it doesn’t involve meds or years of therapy. If you’d like to learn what it is, then keep reading…  …


NYC Dating Magic Part 2

(If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, please read it first before continuing: NYC Dating Magic Part 1)   Here’s the breakdown of our 3 day adventure (a huge thanks to my good friend Plato for helping me concoct the itinerary):  …


NYC Dating Magic Part 1

Today, I’d like to answer a question I’m frequently asked by my male clients.   “Ok, Jay, She finally said yes. So what do I do now?”   Aka: “It took me three months to convince her to go out with me but I have no clue where I should take her. What do you…


Best Christmas Present Ever

If you follow me on twitter, you know that I’ve been raving about my incredibly talented friend Jessica and her beautiful voice. She gave me the best Christmas present I’ve ever received and I wanted to share it with you guys….


If You Want To Be Good At Life, Make Peace With Death

I had an interesting coaching session the other day that I’d like to tell you about. My client (we’ll call him Steve) is a marine who returned home from Iraq earlier in the year. While overseas, one of his best friends became paralyzed from a stray bullet. Unable to deal with the emotional pain, he…


Falling In Love Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

About a week back, I put up a tweet on twitter that got everyone all riled up. I’ll admit that it was a bit controversial, even for me. It read:   “The more frustrated men I work with, the more I believe that falling in love is the biggest mistake a man can make in…


Even Though Vince Is A Tranny, It Always Works Out In The End

Is it just me or does everything always seem to go wrong no matter what?  No matter how much time you spend planning… no matter how brilliant the people you hire are… no matter how many deities you pray to or rabbit’s feet you collect… it’s never enough to prevent imminent disaster from striking at…

If you like this video, please join my mailing list by entering your name and email address into the form on the right.  You’ll be notified by email when new…


The Chris Brown Apology

So Chris Brown finally issued a public apology last week for the infamous “Rihanna incident.” While it was long overdue, most people didn’t seem too happy with it, myself being one of them. Personally, I think he could have done a much better job and at the end of this article, I’m going to be…
