    Just Suffered a FAKE Heart Attack…

    Do you know what Supreme is? It’s this ultra-hip and uber-expensive brand of clothing and accessories. Fridays I spend in SoHo on Lafayette Street, sipping La Colombe coffee why my daughter plays basketball at the Chinatown YMCA with a bunch of other homeschooled kids. The cafe is right next to Supreme’s flagship store – where […]Read More »

    Mastermind Groups – Age 12+

    Last year I paid $10,000 to join a Mastermind Group. Almost 50 of us, we meet quarterly for intense 2-day sessions. After the first one I attended in Chicago, I started bringing my son John. He sits there, all day long and takes it all in. He works on his business, his motivation, his productivity, […]Read More »

    The High Cost of Average Financial Illiteracy

    The Dow Jones was down a devilish 666 points on Friday. Then it descended another 1,175 points on Monday – the largest nominal drop in history. A lot of people got really scared. It was looking down 500+ points to start Tuesday morning and significant “crash” fear was in the air across the globe. However, […]Read More »
  • My New Yoga Gal

    My New Yoga Gal

    This is my new YouTube yoga channel – at least the one that I’m doing each morning before just about anything else. I can’t explain why I like Adriene so much. When I do her sessions I’m not continually jumping up and pausing the video to see how much longer I have left. She’s so […]Read More »

    Psycho-Haters I Have to Suffer

    This psycho contacted ME on LinkedIn. I took the time to answer him thoughtfully….and, well, you can read his “response”. Wow. You tell me, should I post his full name??? I think he may deserve that!Read More »

    The 10 Year Old Publisher

    Last year my daughter Christine, age 10 at the time, started publishing an 8-page print newsletter.  Not one of those HTML email things that gets instantly deleted – but on good old-fashioned paper! The Homeschool Globe’s tagline is  –“Showcasing the Smartest and Coolest Kids on Earth!” Her idea was for it to be a collaborative […]Read More »
  • Tis’ High Season for Trash Talk

    Tis’ High Season for Trash Talk

    Every single spring I hear it from too many parents to count. “Dan what does your schedule look like this summer? I want you to work intensely with my kids…” But then when summer comes, 95% of them do absolutely nothing. They were just talking trash, almost all of them. These aren’t prospects either, I’m […]Read More »
  • Genius, Not Always a Fluke!

    Genius, Not Always a Fluke!

    Below is the preface from my forthcoming book: Preface “HELP!” “HELP!” “HELP ME!” “SOMEBODY HELP ME!” I let out these primal screams at the pool, in the middle of a humble condo complex, in Naples, Florida in January of 2009. I was dripping wet, my sopped t-shirt plastered to me….I had just frantically dove in […]Read More »
  • Rebranding, Again

    Rebranding, Again

    My online journey started out with a sophomoric blog that over 10 years garnered 1 million hits. Most important of all, it taught me to write and it opened so many intellectual doors to me I am petrified to think who I’d be otherwise. From there I branched out to Cyber-Scholar.com to start focusing on […]Read More »
