I needed to clone myself, or find a solution.

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."

How the Most Self-Disciplined People Create Remarkable Results

/
You're disciplined. I get it. You focus on keeping yourself motivated. You stay healthy. You even seek new ways to be successful in your career. Self-discipline is a cornerstone of your life. Mine too. Also like you, I want to get better at it. So recently I decided to consult the most disciplined person I know: Jason Van Camp is the founder and chairman of Mission 6 Zero. The company specializes in performance enhancement. Jason is also a West Point graduate, a Green Beret, and a great human being. I recently connected with Jason to learn secrets to self-discipline. He shared seven daily habits that keep this Green Beret sharp, in tune, and over-performing on a consistent basis.

Chris Dessi: How do you define success? Jeff Pearlman: It’s a funny question. Back when I was coming up, first at the University of Delaware, then at The Tennessean in Nashville, my answer would have been something like, “Making it to Sports Illustrated” or “having an SI cover story.”

G. William LaRosa is not just my Uncle. He's my Godfather. I've idolized him for as long as I can remember. Recently, in the midst of a compelling conversation about business, I marveled how intelligent he is. He replied "I'm not that smart, I've just been around." I call that wisdom. It's my honor to share my Godfather's wisdom on this blog.

Everyone has different methods that to lead to their success, especially entrepreneurs. For me, the most important daily quality is being flexible. There have been times where I’ve had to fly to a different continent on a moment’s notice, extend a trip for weeks at a time, or drop everything to solve a time sensitive issue. It’s being able to address these unexpected turns that has allowed me to become the entrepreneur I am today. I guess you can say my “rhythm” is embracing the unexpected and being flexible in times of uncertainty. I work better at night, so I generally go to bed at around 1am and start the day around 9am, answering emails in bed. Working from home has its advantages.
