Free speed coaching is back!

Hello! I'm extra excited to share this week's three links with you because I know they'll lead to great conversations:

  1. Great conversations have lots of doorknobs by Adam Mastroianni
  2. This is what happens in the best type of conversations, by Jakob Greenfield
  3. Up for an amazing conversation? At least once a year, I fling open the Calendly doors for free, 20-minute individual speed coaching sessions. That time is now! See how a 20-minute conversation can move your thinking forward on any question or challenge you have:

Maybe coaching isn't what you're after. Great! Use the same link for a free consult on something, too; just let me know in the text box when you sign up. Here are some ideas of what I might help you with

Extra thoughts…

Next week's free coaching is open to everyone. Even if I've coached you before — or I'm coaching you now — come on in! There's always brilliant insights to be had and new things to learn (that goes for me, too).

It's a no-pressure, no strings attached opportunity. I do this because I enjoy helping people get new insights quickly through short, laser-focused conversations. Honing my skills this way is my idea of making work fun. Can I make yours more fun, too?

See you next week!

PS. Here's a bonus unthinking link for you: Same Energy is a site where you share or describe a photo and get an endless scroll in return with the same vibe.

If you know somebody who might get value from this newsletter, why not share with them? Forward this email to help them gain more clarity and confidence about what they're doing, too:

You can always visit the newsletter archive for all the worksheets and other free tools. Or browse podcast episodes and read the latest long-form insights​. I even have a page where you can access every Medium article I've written, paywall-free

Hope you enjoy this as much as I do creating and sharing it!
