Is Your Business Bloated? A Quick BizMI Health Check

Howdy, Zack here.​​Ever heard of your Business Mass Index (BizMI)? No, it's not about your weight—it's about the health of your business, similar to how Body Mass Index (BMI) measures personal health. We all know a healthy BMI can mean a longer, healthier life, free from diseases. Similarly, a balanced BizMI is crucial for a thriving, efficient business. But what exactly is BizMI, and why should you care? BTW, I made up the term. Imagine BizMI as a measure of your business's structural and...

Howdy, Zack here. Today, on Valentine's Day, let's talk about diving into ‘shark-infested’ waters. Not just any waters, but the ones we've convinced ourselves are too dangerous, too unknown, or too fraught with peril—whether in our personal lives or at work. Being married to Gwen since 2001 has taught me the importance of diving into the depths of our relationship, even when it seems like there might be sharks lurking. It's the intentional moments, like setting aside work to listen to her...

Howdy, Zack here. Today, I'm urging you to do something radical: take a break. Wondering how? 3 STEPS Stop What You're Doing​Yeah, all of it. It's time to pause. Stop Making Excuses​We all have endless to-do lists. Today, let's prioritize rest. Start Giving Yourself Freedom​Give yourself permission to engage in a hobby or embrace sweet nothingness. Just remember: We're not designed to be robots 🤖. Freedom from our routines is necessary for our well-being, not a luxury. 3 FAVES Sorry, no...

How We Scale • Dig to the Key

Howdy, Zack here. The answer you seek is there. You just have to dig deep enough to find it. We've become somewhat lazy — and I include myself in this. We're programmed by the conveniences around us. If an answer isn't immediately apparent, we turn to Google, AI, coworkers, friends, or even social media. But are we asking the right questions? More often than not, we might not even know how to frame these questions correctly. We tend to process issues over and over, where solutions only offer...

How We Scale • Stick-with-it-ness

Howdy, Zack here. 10 days in. Have you failed yet? You know what I'm referring to. That all-important New Year's Resolution. I get it. You really wanted something to change. But change is hard. And sticking with it is even harder. We've all been there, haven't we? Yet, for years, perhaps even decades, you've dreamed of... Getting your business on track- Losing that weight & eating healthier- Learning an instrument or a new language- Making more money and taking that vacation- Stopping...

How We Scale • Phone Marionette

Howdy, Zack here. Have you ever stopped to consider who's in control — you or your phone? Phones are incredible tools, aren't they? They connect us, inform us, and even entertain us. But here's a question that often gets overlooked: Are we controlling our phones, or are they controlling us? If it's the latter, we're the tool, not our phone. I've been pondering the true cost of our phone addiction. Sure, it's a personal issue, but its ripples extend deep into our professional lives, too. The...

How We Scale • Carpe Diem

Howdy, Zack here. Carpe Diem! Yesterday, while driving and listening to​ Philip De Courcy's sermon, I was struck by his threefold call to Seize the Day — Confidently, Urgently, and Joyfully. Confidence in our day starts with knowing our purpose. It's about aligning our daily actions with our values and goals. I've had days filled with doubt, questioning where to spend my energy. And even on days meant for rest and recovery, if I’m not confident in my choice to pause, it can feel less like a...

How We Scale • Do Nothing

Howdy, Zack here. In a world that glorifies the hustle, let’s talk about the power of… nothing. Yeah, you read that right. Doing nothing might be the most productive thing you can do today. Here’s the idea: sometimes, the best way to recharge your personal and professional batteries is to step back and embrace the art of stillness. Sleep in one day. Linger under the covers. Take an extra-long, steaming hot shower. Let the water cascade over your shoulders while savoring that steam-filled...

How We Scale • Direction

Howdy, Zack here. If you're honest with yourself, what direction are you heading right now? Is it one that you're proud of? Or do you feel off course? How might you know? Well, consider if you can see the light of a particular path in front of you. One that directs you to your North Star. When you're veering off course, that light becomes dim. If you're not sure what your calling in life may be, that's another discussion entirely. But, if you presently feel off-course, more action in the...

How We Scale • Kindness

Howdy, Zack here. What the world needs a little more of... is kindness. You know what kindness is — it's that unexpected moment of warmth from someone that seems to come at just the right time. Kindness isn't just about how we treat others but also how we treat ourselves. What's incredibly neat about kindness is that it's easy to give. A small comment or even just a smile can make a world of difference. Yet, the hustle and heaviness of the world seem to be a block for basic acts of kindness...
