Staying safe in a crisis - Crushing the Coronavirus with Calvin Correli and Kasim Aslam
During these scary and exciting times, there's one person, more than anyone, that I turn to for insight into how things might turn out. His name is Kasim Aslam.
He's the master when it comes to markets, the safety of you and your family. He's a prepper, but not a loonie.
It's time to be calm and lead.
This virus is the real deal
At first, my thought was that the virus was going to turn out to be not that big of a deal, but that the economic consequences were going to be very real.
The second half is definitely going to hold up.
I'm not so sure about the first half.
Based on my latest information, death rates are between 0.5% and 6%, and it depends a lot on how diligently we respond.
The challenge is that we don't know how many cases there really are. We only know h…
I had another life-changing experience, and it was all because I trusted my gut.
I was on my way to Mexico when I saw someone tweeting out that he was going to be speaking at CPAC.
Right then and there, I got this strong intuition that I should go as well.
I'd only heard about the event for the first time last year, and then pretty much forgotten about it since.
But as you may know, my goal is to be a special advisor to the President of the United States on conscious nation-building.
Hiring is a skill
It's critical that you get help with your business.
It's so tempting, especially in the early days as an entrepreneur, to try and do everything yourself. But that's a big mistake.
You absolutely need help to execute your vision for your business. And the sooner you get started getting that help, the better.
And finding, vetting, hiring, managing, and leading people is a whole separate skillset that you need to learn.
You'll make mistakes. Lots of them, probably. I know I have.
But the soone…
Introducing a new Support Ticket Widget!
We're really excited to introduce a new feature that has been highly requested within the Simplero community.
It's called a Support Ticket Widget and it's going to allow you to communicate with your customers in a much easier way!
It's also going to allow your customers to find immediate answers to their questions. Immediate answer plus no support ticket is a win-win!
Here's a quick video on how it works and how to configure it on your site:

8 hours a week
I used to hate working out.
Don't get me wrong. I'd do it. But I didn't enjoy it. It was a necessary evil.
If I could never work out and still feel okay, I'd do that.
That all changed in 2017 when Bengt Valentino Andersen challenged me to work out 8 hours a week.
At the time I was working about maybe 4-5 hours a week, and I thought I was doing pretty great.
Bengt just looked at me and said: "If you want the body you say you do, then you'll have to work out more than that."
Six hours if you…
Who are you?
How you see yourself determines everything about your life.
Are you a success or a failure?
Are you a people person or not?
Are you a good leader?
Are you a good lover?
Are you strong or weak? Healthy or unhealthy? Disciplined or sloppy?
Your identity shapes your life.
But your identity is just a habit.
Every day you wake up, you have the opportunity to be someone new.
Your identity is just a set of beliefs currently governing your life. And you can change those beliefs.
I changed my n…
Command your mind
Watch how you talk to yourself because your mind takes orders and runs with them.
Whenever it doesn't feel that way, it's because you've given it a different command so many times that it's gotten stuck. It may take a minute to get unstuck.
My experience is that you can command your mind to an extraordinary degree.
"I know exactly what to do next to build my business, and I'm excited to get going on it."
"I love working out."
"Making money is easy and fun."
"I have a phenomenal me…
When God Calls...
I’ve been doing a lot of downloading, lately. Not from the internet. From spirit.
I’ll tell my mind to give me an answer to something.
And then I trust that it’ll do what I asked of it.
(Because guess what? That’s what minds do!)
And sure enough, I’ll wake up at 5.30 am with the exact answer I was looking for.
What do I do then? Go back to sleep?
NO, of course not!!
I pick up my phone and open up a new note (thank god for the shortcut in the control center!), and start typing(thank god fo…
Introducing the simplified Simplero admin experience!
Today we're opening beta access to the new, redesigned Simplero admin experience.
After interviewing dozens of Simplero users—brand new, existing, and ex-users—we kept hearing one piece of consistent feedback: "The admin area is too confusing!"
And it rings true. Over the years we added more and more capabilities to Simplero, and the overall organization and navigation of the application never got the attention it needed to keep up.
With this redesign we're getting back to one of our core pr…
