The Dojo’s Success and Failure Thus Far
The last two months were a roller coaster ride. I experienced many successes and some failures AND learned tons.
For those of you who don’t know, I just the Leadership Dojo. My goal is to help you learn success principles from leaders to make your life CRAZY AWESOME. My first blog post launched on 6/24/13, with an overwhelming response.
If there was one thing I would tell the Alex before I started the Leadership Dojo, it would be to work on my time management skills. I messed up on a few interviews because I didn’t manage my time wisely.

Don’t fear failure. Do you know how many things I’ve failed at while launching this podcast? Too many guys.
I completely forgot about my interview with Stu McLaren. (We rescheduled)
I sent out an introductory email to my subscribers asking for feedback. Lost 4 and received 0 responses.
I forgot to post a blog on a few days. (Right now my goal is to post a new blog 3 times a week)
Some of my friends questioned my motives and even attempted to dissuade my leadership path.
I neglected time with my family.
I missed my daughter’s first haircut because I had an interview.
I learned and moved on. I did the next right thing.
This has been an amazing 2 months and I can’t wait another 27 days until the Leadership Dojo launches!
