There’s a big age gap between me and my next oldest and next youngest siblings. So, on the farm where I grew up in Northern Ohio, I spent the first years of my life without any playmates. When I dealt with anyone, it was with adults.

If there’s one skill to master that allows you to make more money doing what you love, it’s Unique Ability. Unique Ability is a concept developed by one of my best friends, Dan Sullivan, the founder of Strategic Coach. Dan has done more to help guide my thinking, actions, and confidence in the areas of value creation than anyone else on the planet.
