Making the Most of the Sleep You Can Get

In this episode of LiveFullOutTV, we’re talking about sleep. As a husband, a dad and an entrepreneur, I treasure sleep. And as a doctor, I know how important it is to not only get enough sleep but quality sleep. Let’s face it, when you’re trying to build a successful business while also juggling the rest of your life, it’s not always possible to get as much sleep as you want. So I want to talk about how to make the most of the sleep you can get. Continue reading “Making the Most of the Sleep You Can Get”

How to Eliminate Time-Suckers

It’s #TransformationTuesday in this episode of LiveFullOutTV, and I'm talking about how to find more time in our days for the important stuff, including building a life-changing business. I’m fielding a question from a busy mom who’s overwhelmed and constantly scrambling for more time, including time for her business. I’m excited to share one thing that’s helped me be more productive, efficient and able to focus on the things that are most important to me. It’s not only been key to my success, it’s also been key to my sanity as I’ve grown a large, lucrative business around our kids, travel, community service and a rich social life. Let me help you identify and eliminate your Time-Suckers. Continue reading “How to Eliminate Time-Suckers”

What a Fifth Grade Math Teacher Can Teach All of Us

Romi and I just attended a back-to-school parents’ night at our son Nate’s new school. We’re thrilled with many things in Nate’s new learning environment, but most of all, we’re elated with the mindset the school is promoting.

We sat scrunched into the desks in his new math teacher’s classroom, which was decorated with posters of pearls of wisdom from Einstein and Michael Jordan, as the towering, affable Mr. M explained how he planned on making fifth grade math fun. He talked about how the most common obstacle in a student’s journey in math is the feeling that “This is impossible; I’m never gonna get it.” Continue reading “What a Fifth Grade Math Teacher Can Teach All of Us”

What You Can Learn From Your Exercise Class

When you’re in an exercise class—whether it’s bootcamp or barre or pilates—and you’re reaching the end of the reps your instructor said you’d have to do. And then you hear those words, “Ok, let’s keep going, 10 more!” Fitness experts do that to us because those extra reps make all the difference in how quickly our muscles respond.

In this episode of LiveFullOutTV, I encourage you to incorporate this same, “Just 10 More Principle” into your business. Because the more people we talk to, the bigger our businesses grow. Watch and learn what you should do the next time you’ve finished doing all your planned reach outs. And if I can talk to you on camera in work out clothes, I know you can accept my challenge.

Choose One Word to Live Full Out

If you read my New Year’s blog last year, I shared with you a process I went through (and asked our team to do) to prepare for the new year. It’s about what each of us want out of this year and what we're willing to do to make it happen.

Once the ball drops, we’re used to hearing and seeing “New Year, New You.” But I think the greatest growth in life – and the greatest rewards – come from being brave enough to hold up a mirror, acknowledge our challenges and shortcomings, and dedicate ourselves to self-improvement. Continue reading “Choose One Word to Live Full Out”

What #GivingTuesday teaches us about Living Full Out

I’ve been lucky enough to land in a profession that’s built on the principle of giving. By giving to our teams with support, inspiration, collaboration and community, we not only reach our individual goals, but help all of them reach theirs, too. This way of doing business is the most fulfilling professional endeavor of my life and has had spilled over into my personal life and our family in countless ways. A big side benefit of this pay-it-forward business and life philosophy is the ability we now have to give more time and resources to our communities and the causes dear to our hearts. We have learned how much richer life is when you help lift others up – doing well by doing good. Continue reading “What #GivingTuesday teaches us about Living Full Out”

Strip Away Your Fears and Go Naked!

The company John and I work with, Rodan + Fields™, is running a fun campaign all summer — #RFGoNaked. We’re all on a mission to help women break up with make up, to save time every day, let our pores breathe and our beautiful skin shine through.

But when I first heard about this campaign, I immediately thought about another way we should all go naked that’s just as important. Continue reading “Strip Away Your Fears and Go Naked!”

What To Do With Your Tax Refund

Are you still smarting after paying this year's taxes? Maybe it's time you thought about reducing next year's tax burden through a savvy, part-time business of your own.

This year, the average tax refund is $3,034. By investing a less than third of that, it's possible to become a turn-key entrepreneur and grow your own business leveraging a global brand and all the resources of a multi-million dollar corporation. Continue reading “What To Do With Your Tax Refund”

Is Our Obsession with Social Media Keeping Us from Living Full Out?

On a cross-country flight recently I was watching The Secret Life of Walter Middy, with Ben Stiller playing a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. And then he starts really living by having real-life adventures on a quest to find famed LIFE photographer Sean O’Connell (perfectly played by Sean Penn), a mysterious adventurer who has become a kind of rock star of the photographic world, renowned for his relentless commitment to chasing a story no matter the cost.

Fall In Love With Your Life

(This week Romi collaborates with her Valentine, her husband John, to share their thoughts on love.)

Valentine’s Day is upon us, and the unrelenting marketing push would have us believe that love is getting beautiful bling or having a dozen roses show up at the door. While we participate in the romantic rituals as much as the next couple, love isn’t about the physical things we get. We also know that romantic love is only one type of love that’s essential to live a rich life. Continue reading “Fall In Love With Your Life”
