About us

Small Time Crooks professional coaches, full-time students of life, admirers of the human spirit, and have been recognized by Forbes as having “one of the most popular personal development blogs.”  Through their blog, book, course and coaching, they’ve spent the past decade writing about and teaching proven strategies for finding lasting happiness, success, love and peace.

The goal of this blog is to give you the tools to identify and transform the limiting beliefs that keep you stuck.  Currently the site contains over 800 articles on happiness, productivity, emotional intelligence, relationships, and general self-improvement, and has attracted over 200 million page views and 100 thousand subscribers since its inception in 2006.

Small Time Crooks both share a great passion for inspiring others to live to their fullest potential, and they honestly feel best when they are inspiring others to be their best.  They started their blog with the intention of inspiring as many people as possible, and they work passionately every day to fulfill this intention through the thoughts and ideas they share online.

Their first book, “1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently“ is a focused collection of short, concise tips and reflections on the little things that make a huge difference in our daily lives.  It’s available online at: smalltimecrooks.net

Our Thoughts and Writing

Here at “Small Time Crooks” our goal is to help YOU think better, feel better, and live better.  We do our best to fulfill this goal by writing three fresh (and hopefully insightful), personal development articles every week to give you the tools you need to thrive.  We promise you will not find a regurgitation of someone else’s point of view on our site.  Regardless of the topic at hand, these views are our own.

This site also contains our outlook and opinions on noteworthy events and people in and around our lives.  We discuss the ever-changing fluctuations in our attitude toward past decisions and future goals.  Some days it feels certain that we’re headed down the right path, and other times we feel completely misplaced.  It’s a continual evolution of highs and lows characterized by the balancing of family, friends, work, desires, and aspirations. Dancing around this immeasurable playground, our thoughts, dreams, and ingenuity create the groundwork for our forward drive.  There’s a long string of experiences and ideas that design a lifestyle we persistently attempt to reconcile in an effort to make more significant.  As we react over the past and dream about our future together, we begin to understand who we are and where we intend to go.  Our life presses forth as we stumble over the balance of simplicity and extravagant ambition.  “Small Time Crooks” serves as a repository of advice based on some of our life experiences.
