Are you someone who likes to hide out a little?

Because you need time on your own, to reflect, to be quiet, and to just be?

Because you don’t want to work 24/7, you value your sleep, and you don’t want to be ON all the time?

Because you don’t want to HUSTLE HUSTLE PUSH PUSH GO GO to grow your business and manifest your deepest, biggest business dream?

Yeah. I know your type.

I AM your type.

I’m just like you:

I like to live a quiet, simple life. I prefer to stay in my cave and not go ‘out there’.

I love interaction, if it’s about true and deep connections.

And if it doesn’t take me too much time.

I love to live a simple life and have a simple business.

AND I’m building a global inspiration & information empire.

WITHOUT changing who I am, compromising on anything I want or need, or doing anything out of alignment with ME.

How I grow my business is NOT the general way you’re normally told that you ‘must’ grow your business.

It’s NOT the message everyone in western society is force-fed all day, every day, on what it takes to be successful and manifest your dreams.


These are the messages we DO get, all the time, every time:

  • No pain, no gain!
  • If you want to be successful, you have to work HARD for it! All day, every day!
  • You have to suck it up, power through, battle on, and GO GO GO 24/7!
  • Sleep is for pussies, babies, and dead people! If you want to MAKE it you have to get up early! Hit the gym before you take a run before you take a cold shower before you write 5000 words before you have breakfast before you HUSTLE HUSTLE HUSTLE all. day. long. day. in. day. out.!


I can barely write it down.

Even typing this wears me out.

And the thought of actually having to DO this makes me want to curl up in a ball and hide out in my cave and never come out of there again.

And I bet your reaction is similar to mine.

This is NOT how you want to live, how you want to work, and how you want to grow your business.

If THIS is what it takes to make your business goals come true, well, fuck it.

If THIS is the way to and the price of success, forget about it.

And so you kinda give up.

You settle for less impact, less money, and making less of a difference than you KNOW you are capable of, than you WANT to make, and that you feel CALLED to make.


I’m here to tell you TO PLEASE NOT GIVE UP!

To be true to YOU, to add your voice, and make a difference and grow a successful business in YOUR OWN, quiet, relaxed way.


There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with a go-getter-work-hard-hustle-all-day-attitude if this is a perfect fit with who you naturally are.

If it resonates deeply with your own truth about who you are, what you need, and how you want to live and work.


But if this is NOT who you are, and it’s NOT aligned with the true you, it is SO WRONG for you.

And you should NOT try to force yourself into that mold OR give up.


You should GO for your dream, in YOUR own, quiet, reflective, solitary way.


Make your business and success as BIG and BEAUTIFUL as you feel called and inspired to – AS A RESULT of being you.

Don’t follow any rules that don’t serve you.

Don’t force yourself to be someone you’re not, and do things you DO NOT want to do.


Make a success of your business as a result of being YOU.

And show it.

Share it with others.

Be loud and proud – OK, be quietly yet openly proud – of doing business and life YOUR way.


So more and more people can see that you DO NOT have to be someone you’re not if you want to build a successful business.

So more and more people understand that it’s not just OK, but you’re even SUPPOSED to be ALL of who you are, and be relentlessly true to yourself.

And so more and more people understand that you DO NOT have to be a go-getting-always-working-hustler to be successful and make a massive difference.

If that’s who you are: be that. Do that.

But if you’re not?

Don’t. Just don’t.

Be you. Show up as you.

And never, ever, EVER think you have to be who you’re not or do what you hate to create a successful business & life.

You don’t. You really, really don’t.
