My profound statement for this month:
Automate the TACTICAL and Cultivate the STRATEGIC

In Brief
I trust this finds everyone well.
February was incredibly busy and productive for me both personally and professionally.
I got the chance to go to one of my favorite places on the planet, Fort Bragg/Mendocino which is right on the Pacific Ocean. My family and I took our yearly President’s Day trip and it did NOT disappoint.
If I can challenge each of you with an action item, it would be to ensure that you take time out for you and those close to you to reconnect on what is really important.
Much of the content on the YouTube channel right now is focused on Women’s History Month - go watch the replays to see some great conversations with women of industry that are absolutely KILLING IT! More to come too.
I had the distinct pleasure of being a keynote speaker at the Expert Podcast Summit. You can check my discussion HERE.
I’m not going to lie (or even try to be humble) but the caliber of content that was published during February was definitely top notch! Not because of anything I did, but because of the amazing guests that blessed the community with their insights and knowledge. So for that I want to publicly give a heartfelt THANK YOU to my guests and let you all know that the direction of the content shared/created will 100% continue to raise the bar and quality of conversation. I got some fire coming for the remainder of March and April and subscribers with notifications turned on will get the news first!!
Content Updates
As this issue goes out, I’m literally in the midst of premiering an exclusive content series with Intel! I’m incredibly humbled by the trust they have put into me by allowing me to be the primary media outlet sharing the stories of the International Trade Group (ITG).
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s on the calendar for the remainder of the month:
Of course every Tuesday night at 6:30pm PST I have Team NO Sleep with Montell Allen where we talk the social impact of sports.
NOTE: we have JUST launched a seperate channel for Team NO Sleep - so make sure to subscribe there as well as we build out that brand. Here is the link to the TNS Channel.
Tech Updates
Apple Event
You undoubtedly saw/heard the news from the Apple Event March 8th. There were some decent products announced. At a high-level they were:
  • Friday Night Baseball being added to Apple TV+
  • New green color for the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro
  • New iPhone SE
  • iPad Air w/ M1 chip
  • MacStudio
  • Studio Display
If you’re on the fence on whether or not to get one of these new products and asking should you upgrade - book some time with me and we’ll talk about your specific use case and make a qualified decision. Book some time with me HERE.

Merch News
HNM merch is on 🔥 right now! The FOCUSED line is doing extremely well and I can’t tell you all how grateful I am for your support. New sizes, new colors and the new swoop hem has been launched on the site.
The original HNM coffee mug is running low on availability - so if you want one you better order soon. After these are gone, they’re gone forever - I’m in the midst of refreshing my company logo.
Also, breaking news - that only YOU newsletter subscribers know about - there will be FOCUS mugs coming to the store in the next few weeks (I’ve approved the design and placed the initial order from the designer).
There are a few more awesome additions coming in the coming weeks - I really think you’ll like where the merch/apparel is going in terms of designs and product offerings. Keep a look out on the site HERE.
Closing
Take care of yourself, take care of your family, take care of your health and mental wellness. Keep those in the midst of conflict across the globe in your thoughts and prayers ✌🏾
