    I do, therefore I be - What is MAVEN? Podcast

    With an all new set, we talk about everything from what’s that smell to the philosophy of thinking versus doing.


  • How to find the right business coach

    A business coach, like a great sports coach, should meet you where you are. Their job is to ask questions and provide guidance, not to define who and where they think you should be.

    You have an existing skillset.
    You have a network.
    You have opportunity.

    A coach should identify and work within those constraints.

    One who does will always outperform one who seeks conformity to their personal model for success.

    Make sure you’re met where you are. If a coach expects you to join them where they are, demand better.


  • Doing vs Done-ing

    Art is ephemeral.

    What you’ve done doesn’t matter.

    What you DO is everything.

    Like it or not, “What’s next?” is the most important question.

    But it must be answered well before it’s asked.

    Otherwise you’re no longer an artist taking us on a journey.

    We’re just passengers asking to be dropped somewhere…anywhere.


  • The simple way to stop procrastinating

    This week, we talk about systems, friction, and how to overcome what’s holding you back.


  • Audience of Ones

    You don’t need an audience of millions, thousands, or even hundreds to have a thriving business.

    You can also be wildly successful with an audience of ones.

    Just build accordingly.


  • This week, we’re sticking with our podcast habit by recording from the car. We had an audio snafu, but that won’t stop us.

    We talk about why your habits aren’t sticking, how to successfully build positive habits, and how to stay motivated.

  • Everything is made up, nothing matters

    Everything is made up, nothing matters

    I constantly talk to people who aren’t doing their thing because: excuses.

    Then I invariably say, “Everything’s made up and nothing matters.”

    Then they laugh.

    They always laugh.

    Not because it’s funny.

    But because it’s uncomfortable.
    And because they know it’s true.

    Don’t let fear of judgment or the opinions of others hold you back.

    Everything is made up.
    Nothing matters.

    Just do the thing.


  • Learn from the next, not the best

    Always consider who you’re emulating.

    Someone a few steps ahead is growing because of their actions.

    Someone already wildly successful or famous can be doing so despite them.


  • How to be unstoppable

    Remember:
    You don’t know what you don’t know.

    Stay curious.

    Explore your interests, but also explore the void of the unknown.

    Do this forever.

    The connections you make will be uniquely yours.

    And you’ll be unstoppable.

    Steak marinade:

    Spanish cauliflower rice:

    Taco fixins:

    Directions

    1. Combine all steak marinade ingredients in a glass container large enough for your steak. Marinate for at least 3 hours, preferable 24 hours.
    2. Remove your marinated steak from the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking.
    3. Roughly chop your romaine lettuce. Set aside in a container.
    4. Finely dice your onion. Set aside in a container.
    5. Make your guacamole by combining your avocado, garlic, lime, and salt in a bowl.
    6. To make your cauliflower rice, heat about 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a pot over medium heat.
    7. Next, add your riced cauliflower. Let cook for 3-4 minutes.
    8. Then, add the chicken broth, salsa, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and Tajín. Stir to combine and then cover with a lid.
    9. Let your cauliflower rice cook for 30 minutes, stirring occassionally.
    10. While your cauliflower rice is cooking, start heating up your tortillas in a pan over medium-high heat. I store mine in a towel to keep warm until ready to serve.
    11. To cook your steak, heat a small amount of olive oil over medium heat in a pan.
    12. Once warmed up, add your steak and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. Flip as needed until cooked.
    13. Serve all together and enjoy!
