Business is a messy business.

Since I started uGurus, I have sent monthly(ish) updates to my investors. November 1 is three years. These updates have proved quite valuable as a retrospective. Little breadcrumbs into my thoughts, aspirations, and vision over this time. And while parts of what we do resemble what began several years ago… it’s a different business today than when we started. I … Read More

Why Financing Your Happiness is More Dangerous Than Your Money

Brent WeaverUncategorized0 Comments

Have you ever put your happiness on a credit card? I’m not talking about spending money you don’t have. Or buying that new pair of shoes you can’t afford to make yourself feel good. Cause those kicks are sick and you should have ’em. What I’m talking about is financing your present day well-being. Telling yourself… “I’m going to forgo … Read More

Today we are alive my friends. No guarantees tomorrow will come. No future promises. No time for hesitation. We are here together now. Hearts pumping. Minds racing. Ain’t no room for fear. Good riddance trepidation. Seize the seconds. They are yours to have. Might never get another chance. Hold tight. Don’t let go. Flow. We are alive my friends.

It’s 3AM. I’m jumping on Richard Branson’s trampoline. Here comes Jeff Walker. Dressed like a pirate. The woman next to him is very upset. I am not really sure why, but she’s yelling and pointing her finger at me. Yanik Silver has long gone to bed. Or at least I think he did. I have no idea… it’s a decently … Read More

I dropped out of college in my last semester. I didn’t think too hard about it. I mean, for years I felt I was a round peg in a square hole. Maybe you can relate. Out of place. Out of touch. Out of sync. Not doing what you were brought to this planet for. It wasn’t some grand moment or … Read More

Overcoming Resistance When at Conferences

I don’t feel like talking to anyone else at this event.” But something nags at you. There is still something to be had. Don’t ignore the … Read More

How do you grow? Personal growth in yourself… Your company… Your organization… I often hear from people (when applying to our program, and when considering other investments in themselves or their business) this sentence: “I will join when I get that next big project.” “I will hire a coach when I get to $1mm in revenue.” “I will join a … Read More

The rock’s sharp fangs dug deep into the tips of my toes. I couldn’t tell if my feet were simply wet, or if they were seeping with blood. Why am I on this cliff? If I slip, it will be a terribly gory death. In front of a cache of friends, and most of all, the love of my life. … Read More

The Power of Successive Ideas

Brent WeaverUncategorized0 Comments

During my childhood, there was a myth that was readily predicated by the adults in my life: come up with that next big idea and you will succeed. Teachers. Parents. Media. Your neighbor Bob. They all crazy for this myth. We see successful people changing the world and we dissolve away everything that was required to get there to a … Read More
