Leadership is a practical skill in an individual, organisation, or group showing the ability to influence or guide others, make essential decisions, and carry out important tasks. You’ve probably come across the term “born leaders”. Well, this is true. What’s also true is that leaders are created.

This means you…


Here’s where many online entrepreneurs fail!

Why Customer Research So Important Is

In its basic concept described a business as follows:

Business is the activity of making one’s living or making money by producing or buying and selling products (such as goods and services). Simply put, it is “any activity or enterprise entered into for profit.” — [Wikipedia]

A Framework to Become the Best Version of Yourself

Do you want to become a true high performer, not only in your business but in your entire life? I mean, who does not want to impress his co-workers and friends?

A Harvard Business Review article from 2014 starts with the following statement:

A high performer can deliver 400% more…


… and he added 10 minutes of chit-chat

I managed to injure my right heel last week. I thought I was just fine and played tennis.

Narrator: It was not a good idea.

During the last game, I landed on that heel, and all hell broke loose.

My wife convinced (read: “forced”) me to call our go-to doctor.


Most of the answers to that question are really amazing, every single time!

“You should save enough money to get by at least 18 months” is one classical statement, just about as good as “consider your family situation.” Don’t forget about the dog and your friends.

A few simple steps create a new habit

Confess: How many books did you read last year?

Whenever I meet a particular friend, he tells me he should read more books. He is not alone.

A survey in America revealed that 81% do not read…


This year is tough, no doubt about it. But if all you can do is complain — that is on you.

A crisis always is a chance.

To rethink. To change. To adapt. To sit back. To refocus. To learn.

My wife and I witnessed the upcoming corona-madness arriving in Europe while being in Japan, that was at the beginning of March. Upon returning home, the only crisis appeared to be…


There is only one thing that really matters to your customers… and here’s why so many businesses get it all wrong

I recently was searching for something and read through a couple of company homepages where they usually state how experience they are, industry-leaders, use state-of-the-art techniques, and have of course the best-educated employees.

That’s absolutely great!

There is only one problem: It is not about them, it is about their…


Why timing matters more than we think

Since the 2015 Stanley Cup run of the Chicago Blackhawks I can be safely filed under “early morning bird”. That’s when I discovered the magic of undisturbed mornings, a fresh mind and full focus until rest of the world awakes.

The only way to follow each game live from Europe…
