I’ve successfully completed a full week (this post makes 8 days) worth of the #100DayChallenge. I started last Saturday and wanted to share a few thoughts from this first week. Continue reading One Week In
We’ve got a buddy that’s incredible at coming up with great ideas.
If ideas were what mattered, the guy would be a millionaire many times over by now.
You can see what’s coming, right? Continue reading Follow Through
This popular mantra from Tony Robbins is an effective way to approach getting things done. But there’s a flip side. Continue reading Where Focus Goes, Energy Flows
Why blog? Why write at all? What’s the point? Continue reading Seth Godin Did It
For the last year I’ve been working nearly full time on the screenplay for HIDDEN WORLD. This post will outline some of the big things I’ve learned over that time, and by the end hopefully convince you that the process of writing and revising a screenplay is an essential part of the roadmap to making a feature film.

Every day for the last 10 months, we failed. It’s a harsh reality. Raising money to make movies is a zero sum game; you either have raised money or you haven’t.

I’ve been reading a lot lately.
A few weeks ago I finished The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone, which is a game changer.
None of those were as easy to speed through, as I felt like I needed to slowly digest those in order to really get what iI needed to get out of them. Then I remembered a book I had come across a while back, called So Good They Can’t Ignore You, by Cal Newport.
