7 Steps to Gain Time and Make Money

I have the blessing of coaching people pretty much every week of my life. And yet, coaching is not what I would have said I’d being doing when I was younger. After years of coaching people, I can say it never gets old!

Life Hack for Time and Money, Chris

This past week in one of my sessions I worked with a company who’s owner was struggling with time due to death by a thousand slashes. He has so many disruptions in his day he finds himself at times working until 4AM to solve problems.

As you can imagine, he’s considerably frustrated with time lost both in his business and his personal life. And just like all of us, he has incredibly legit reasons why it’s like this.

Here are just 7 things I shared with him to gain control of his time, which in turn will make the company more money. They’ll do the same for you… 

What Jesus Didn’t Say

Easter is a time when we celebrate the fact that we have a risen savior. One who took on the world’s sin, received the world’s worst beating, died and rose again, all so we could have life everlasting if we so choose.

Listen, What Jesus Didn't Say,

I’m not telling you anything that you don’t know, but sometimes the reminder causes us to reflect on how jacked up we are, while giving us just a glimpse of the unfathomable Love of God.

And while we have so many stories of God’s Love throughout the Bible, there’s one that helps us to understand that sometimes, God doesn’t tell us everything.

After Jesus rose from the grave, there was a time that He was with the disciples when He gave them this instruction (in CLo speak), I want you guys to hang out in Jerusalem and I’ll send a guy who’s going to tell you some things. (all things)

When they encounter the Holy Spirit, it was some kind of party. So here’s my question…

It’s Ok To Fail!

ailure is inevitable! You’re going to fail! And the great thing is, it’s absostinkinlutely ok!


In LifePlan, StratPlan, and coaching, the fear of failure is one of the biggest issues I face with so many clients. Whether it’s a team member or a leader, a large portion of our population is afraid of failing.

It’s not good enough for me to say it’s ok to fail, because those who are afraid have been taught that it’s NOT ok. They’ve been taught by parents, teachers, leaders, etc. that failure is unacceptable, and in may situation, punishable.

In StrengthsFinder 2.0, author Tom Rath talks about how most of US parents, when seeing their child’s report card of all A’s and one D, would totally focus on the D. Why?…

Business Plan Budget and Action Plan

A business plan isn’t complete unless you have a solid understanding of how much it’s going to cost to run the business.

Business Plan Budget and Action Plan,, Chris LoCurto

“Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn’t first sit down and figure the cost so you’ll know if you can complete it? If you only get the foundation laid and then run out of money, you’re going to look pretty foolish.” ~ Luke 14:28

All too often I see entrepreneurs set out to build a business on a great idea, with no clue if they can pull it off. This usually leads to a great deal of stress, loss of money, lack of relationship, etc.

While I’m usually the first person to celebrate with you about your great idea, (High I and D) I’m also going to be the first to push you to process through every possible income and expense of your new venture, because truthfully, desperate doesn’t sell!

Some things to think about for your business plan budget…

DISC Profiles Explained (Updated 2021)

Almost two decades ago I began realizing just how important understanding personality styles was to me and my business.

Even though I thought I knew personality styles well, I really didn’t.

Many times I was failing with team members because I didn’t understand how to guide and direct them according to their own personality style. Instead, I communicated with mine. Why is bad communication so destructive?
