Conscious Growth Club Opens on April 27, 2020

Apr 20, 2020

Our annual opening of Conscious Growth Club – where we open the doors for new members to join us – will be April 27 to May 1, 2020. So. we’ll have a 5-day opening (Mon-Fri), starting a week from today.

If you don’t join within that time, you’ll have to wait till next year for the opportunity to come around again.

I’ll share an invitation video on April 27 with all the details.

If you’d like to be notified when the doors open, be sure to join the notification list on the Conscious Growth Club web page, and I’ll send you an email when we open.

CGC currently has 150 members, and we’re about to begin our 4th year together. It’s a private community where we all help and support each other to stretch ourselves, to improve our results, and to live in greater alignment with our personal values and standards.

Digital Fringe Theater

Mar 25, 2020

Here’s a nice adaptation for taking theater online and creating an opportunity to support the artists.

I love Fringe Festivals and have seen 200+ Fringe plays since 2010, mostly in Canada. Maybe I enjoyed it a little too much since I married one of the performers. 😉

From artist Chase Pajittles:

Well #DigitalFringe is here! 10 Fringe shows you can watch on any screen whenever you want. Use the promo code Fringe50 to get 50% off! All proceeds go to the artists!

This was a labor of love. I got to use my tech brain to help give other artists solid video of their live work and in the process maybe provide a little bit of income during this very strange time. Watch and share, my friends!

Check out a show or two or ten. It’s way more fun than Netflix. 🙂

Some Coronavirus Predictions

Mar 20, 2020

The USA is currently reporting 16,796 coronavirus cases. Based on the growth curve I’m seeing, I predict we’ll pass 100,000 cases in about 1 week. And I predict that we’ll pass 1,000,000 cases in about 2 weeks (from today).

If we move to total countrywide lockdown immediately, we can slow this, and we must. Each day we wait is a huge mistake.

Note that 1 week ago we were at 2247 cases, and 2 weeks ago we were at 319 cases.

Where we are today is still early, early, early game for the virus. If we don’t lock down right away, we’re looking at tens of millions of infected within a month.

Here’s a shorter prediction: I predict that we’ll pass 50,000 reported cases for the USA in just 4 days, sometime on Tuesday, March 24. This could happen sooner though if there’s a significant increase in testing.

All Vegas Casinos and Hotels Closed

Mar 17, 2020

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced tonight that all Nevada casinos, hotels, and more businesses must close. So the Las Vegas Strip is effectively going dark.

This also includes closing all bars, gyms, beauty salons, barber shops, malls, and restaurants that don’t do takeout and delivery.

I’m glad he did this because while some casinos like Wynn and MGM Resorts properties announced that they were closing, others declared that they were going to stay open but with reduced operations – a huge mistake that would have only cost more lives. So I’m grateful that our Governor shut that down today.

Fast Adaptation From a Fitness Studio

Mar 17, 2020

TruFusion is the local fitness studio that Rachelle and I joined a little over three weeks ago. We love the studio but stopped going to classes a week ago due to the virus situation, and they decided to shutter their locations not long after that. Today I got an email from them sharing that they’re already starting online classes on Wednesday. Now that’s fast!

They provided members like me with a login and password to their website, and so far it lists 4 online classes starting tomorrow afternoon: 2 flow yoga classes and 2 pilates classes.

The local studio was running up to 240 classes a week (65+ different types of classes in 5 different rooms). So they might be able to add more online classes as well. I hope they do.

Of course not all classes can be done from home since they require equipment, but a lot of their workouts could be adapted for online instruction. I especially hope they add a yin yoga class since that was among my favorites.

I’m impressed to say the least. I’m sharing this because I think it’s a beautiful example of a positive adaptation under trying circumstances.

Podcast Interview with Hans Comyn

Jan 14, 2020

My friend Hans Comyn, author of The Way of a Seducer, recently interviewed me for his podcast, The Seduction Show.

The theme of Hans’ podcast is seduction, and in this episode we talk about what seduces us, such as the recent 365-Day Challenge that seduced me into committing to it… and how Hans was seduced into his own 100-day challenge.

Listen to the interview

Our conversation is lively and enthusiastic and has lots of juicy insights about courage, alignment, character sculpting, and personal growth, so I think you’ll enjoy it.
