This is bar none, the most Bitchin’ episode of this podcast.

Most Saturdays while I was living in San Diego, I’d go to the farmers market in little Italy where I live.

During my first visit, I remember seeing these guys at their stand and they looked like they were having the time of their lives.

Their product was called Bitchin’ Sauce, people were flocking around their booth and the entire team was rocking tank tops….naturally I had to go and see what this was all about.

I tried a sample of their Bitchin’ sauce and it blew my mind…and now I’ve developed what is commonly known as a Bitchin’ addition. Literally Every Saturday …

Do you think if you understood how your brain worked and why you behave the way you do, you’d be better equipped to perform at a high level?

If the answer isn’t at a resounding yes for you yet, that may change after today’s episode.

I’m honored to have Steve Sisler founder of the behavioral resource group to take us through a deep dive on the power of behavioral profiling and how we can use it to level up work, relationships, and performance.

There’s a lot of different behavior profile tests out there, but in my opinion the real power is not the test, but the person who is deciphering your results so …

“A common effort, yields common results”

Man I love that, and I think it’s so important to keep in mind in the pursuit of doing hard things.

Today I’m so exicted to have my close friend on the show Steve Schlafman. Steve’s an investor at well known venture capital firm RRE Ventures and is someone whose work ethic and hustle I genuinely admire.

We’ve had a lot of entrepreneurs on this show, but today I wanted to bring someone on the other side of the table on. Steve sees 100’s if not thousands of companies a year and has to distill amongst all the people building things which ones he thinks are going …

Two months ago I realized I’ve been doing my gratitude practice at about 25% of what it could be…

Even though I knew this, I was going about building my perspective muscle in an ineffective way. Most days felt like I …
