The stuff that lasts — true relationships, successful businesses, integrity reputation, for example — requires real effort on your part. GRIT.
And there’s nothing cute about that word. Let’s face this together:
True grit might NOT be sexy, but it certainly is beautiful.
Much like the sunset at the end of a looonnng day, the finish line at the end of a serious race or a second chance after a series of painful and stupid mistakes — true grit is hope, passion and the guts to go after something that really matters. It’s the idea that if you work hard enough and long enough in the right direction, you’ll end up with a breakthrough.
It’s true, grit is the guts to see a dream through.
It takes grit to grow a family. It takes grit to build a business. And it takes grit to market your brand with a message that means something to you and your audience.
“I need some of that grit.”
Here’s what you’ll find inside:
- The 3 tools behind every gritty message.
- The core quality that sparks all successful communication and how to start using it more effectively.
- The 5 things that may be getting in the way of your message.

P.S. There is one more, very important thing. I will never sell or otherwise share your email address. The last thing you (or I) need is a bunch of random people writing you without permission. That’s spam. I don’t like it, so…I don’t serve it. Ok. Bye.
