C.C. writes about the world around him with a unique perspective as a thought leader, influencer and entrepreneur.
Vall de Núria is one of the most peaceful spots I’ve ever had the chance to step foot in.
High in the Pyrenees of Catalonia, Spain, it is only accessible via a train or by hiking in on foot. It is place of beauty, religion, pilgrims and skiers.
If you ever have a chance to visit it, you truly must make the time. I hope to return someday and hike into the valley to fully appreciate the beauty of it all.Pin It
Tomorrow night I’m speaking at Meet, Plan, Go Boston 2012 about this very topic and in helping to collect my thoughts, I thought I’d share them with you.
Traveling is something I love to do and plan to spend the rest of my life enjoying.
As a storyteller, it is important for me to experience as much as possible when I’m on the road and then to turn around and share it with the world so others can experience it. Companies hire me to do this because they know I’m going to deliver results that they’ll be happy with.Pin It
Everyone knows that I’m a big fan of GORUCK.
I’ve interviewed the founder, travel around the world with their gear and love what they stand for.Pin It
When we were younger, our parents would always warn us about developing a reputation. This was said as if the only reputation one could develop was a bad one.
I discuss in Amazing Things Will Happen that everyone should be concerned about their reputation, but why not strive to insure that it is a reputation for being trustworthy, loyal and kind?Pin It
I get asked all the time what is the right length for content?
Is there a magical length that a video should be to go viral? Can a blog post be too long or too short?Pin It
I travel a lot.
Between speaking engagements, press trips and client work I’m on the road every couple of weeks.
Last week, my travels brought me to Girona, Spain to speak at TBEX and unlike most of my travel, my wife came along with me so that we could make an adventure out of the trip.
I wish she could come on more trips with me because having her there made it better.Pin It
Six Pixels of Separation has always been one of my favorite podcasts. Mitch Joel does a great job of covering the marketing industry and sitting down with some of the best and brightest minds working in the space.
While we were both in Columbus recently, we sat down to discuss my new book Amazing Things Will Happen.
It was the first time I’ve been interviewed about the book and it felt good to get it done. You can listen here.
Thank you Mitch for being a great friend and mentor over the years.Pin It
To visit Costa Brava is to fall in love with it.
The people. The food. The beautiful country all around you. How can you not love a location like this?Pin It
Laura and I are in Girona, Spain taking part in TBEX and I wanted to post a quick update to let everyone know what a great time we are having.
The team from TBEX and Visit Costa Brava have gone above and beyond showing everyone here a great time and I can’t thank them enough for bringing us over for this. It isn’t that often that I get to bring Laura on my travels, so this is extra special.
Last night, while we dipped our feet in the Mediterranean at a beach party sponsored by Expedia, I recorded a quick audio update to share the experience with everyone.
Much more thoughts and many more photos when we return.Pin It
This is a photograph of my daughter Emily moments ago taking a picture of her morning artwork on our front door.
Because she is taking it with her iPod Touch (my old iPhone 3) rather than her phone, I know she is going to post it to Instagram.
She saw a moment that she wanted to share and didn’t think twice about stopping for a minute and capturing it. Sure, the school bus would be arriving soon, but she knew she had time and knows that moments don’t last for long.Pin It

One look at this photo and you know that by sharing it I’m comfortable showing myself having a good time and being a bit silly.
I was using Photobooth on my Mac as a monitor to see what my camera was seeing while filming a segment for the upcoming MarketingProfs B2B Forum that I’ll be taking part in and attending.
When I saw the photo it was too silly not to share.Pin It
Last week, I found myself in Columbus, Ohio taking part in Content Marketing World.
When in your second year as a conference and you have a thousand attendees and some of the best speakers in the industry, you know you are doing something right. Add in a concert from Rick Springfield, the opening keynote from Mitch Joel and a closing talk with animals from Jack Hannah and you’ve got a great time.Pin It
Like many, we are a two car family.
Working from home means that my car is “the family car” that holds all of us and that we take anytime the whole family is going somewhere. My wife has a sixty five mile or so round trip commute every day, so she has the more practical commuter car that gets better mileage.
This review could be summed up easily by my wife who told me, “Out of all the cars you’ve been given to review, this is the first one I hated to see go.”Pin It
