One Simple Life Hack to Help You Create Good Habits

I don't pretend to have all the answers. But lately I've been implementing a little trick that has helped me. I think it can help you too. My agency is growing. We have amazing clients. We also produce a world class conference. The conference and the clients are synergistic events on paper. In execution they are at odds. One takes from the other in time, energy and sweat equity. I needed to clone myself, or find a solution.

I have lots of experience being out of work. It happened to me three times in a two-year span. Five times total throughout my career. I'm only 40, so that's a pretty impressive streak. Also - I split up a business partnership. I didn't read the fine print of our contract. I battled my partner for almost a year. I made almost no money.

15 Simple Tips For Introverts Networking That Will Blow Your Mind

/
Three years ago I launched the first Westchester Digital Summit. Last month Forbes magazine called us one of the "Conferences That Will Keep You Ahead of Marketing Trends This Year." We've hosted over 1000 executives in that time. I'm an extrovert, and I understand the power of networking. What hurts me is to see introverts not capitalize on the opportunity of an event like the summit. So here are 15 practical tips you can use the next time you're at an event. I hope you join us at this year's summit and test them out.

Happy Mother’s Day to My Mother Pat Dessi

Mother’s Day just came to a close (phew). After spending the day with my gorgeous wife, two beautiful little girls, and Mother & Father I felt it was appropriate to take a minute and acknowledge my amazing Mother. For those that know her, this post is a no brainer. Mom is truly amazing. A colleague recently poked fun at my business partner and dear friend Anthony Zarro and Myself for being “Mamma’s boys”….we both embraced the term, and agreed that our admiration for our Mothers runs deep. Maybe it’s an Italian thing, or maybe it’s a parent thing (when you finally become a parent you start to realize just how special these women are). Personally I think the world is a better place with my Mother in it.

A Mother’s Day Tribute

As I write this, I’m sitting on the floor in JFK airport. Oddly enough, I’m not traveling anywhere. I’m here to pick up my father in-law Anthony Guiglotto. I’m happy to hang out at the airport to wait for him. He’s a supremely good guy, and I love him. Since the first moment I met him he’s welcomed me into his family (I started dating his daughter 7 years ago this past weekend).
