Currently, I’m safely self-quarantined with my family in Chicagoland. I’m grateful to work in e-commerce, an industry least disrupted by The Bad Thing™. We were already a mostly remote team, so our work has been able to continue largely uninterrupted.
To protect my time, I’m currently saying no to most interviews and panels, all online summits, and all unpaid speaking engagements. There is no set date to when I will start adding these things back into my schedule. It is a profound honor to be in such high demand, but as a small creative business, I need large swaths of time to focus and get into the deep work of creation. As a result, I am fiercely protective of my schedule.
I know you can figure out my email address easily, but to protect my time I’d strongly prefer if you reached out to my assistant first, or through a warm intro from a mutual acquaintance.
If you send us a message, I promise we’ll read it, but I may need to pass on any offers due to high demand for my time.
P.S.: If you’re looking for some quarantainment, my wife and I celebrated May the Fourth with a Star Wars themed dinner. Naturally, I documented this in a fun four-minute YouTube video.

3 In general, I expect to be paid to speak. I will sometimes waive my fee for non-profit, community events if I am the opening keynote. At a minimum, I need my travel & hotel accommodation covered. [Press info]↩
