Last week, I wrote a post entitled, Why I’m Not Sharing My 2019 Goals This Year. I shared that research shows that we shouldn’t share our goals publicly as we’re less likely to achieve them.

My first reaction was panic. I was absolutely terrified. New dad, new house, single income.
My next emotion was helplessness. I literally had no idea what to do. Sure, I hated my job. In fact, just the night before, my wife Tara essentially told me I needed to find a new job…or else.

In this video, I settle the debate once and for all – using statistics from numerous launches involving thousands of affiliates and millions of dollars in sales.
