By | Blog, Intuition University, Invisible Edge | No Comments

2018 has been a year of transformation, change, rapid growth, feeling full, and being more fierce in making decisions that are in alignment with what’s most important.

As father time ticks, every year gets more precious in how I spend my time and what I choose to focus on. 2018 has brought more clarity in stepping in fully to what I’m here to teach, share, and the impact that I want to make in the business world and beyond.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Winning a publishing deal with Career Press/Red Wheel/Weiser and completing Decisive Intuition, which is set to launch in March 2019!

  • Moving operations from Nice, France to London, and now back and forth between London and California.

  • Launching Invisible Edge™ – a global consulting firm that provides executive coaching, advising, mentoring, and consulting for teams of all sizes—from Fortune 500 corporations to entrepreneurial startups.

  • Gathering an inspiring team of passionate trailblazers who want to help develop intuitive intelligence for leaders and teams.

  • Creating Intuition University™, which will be the first remote training for businesses to develop their intuitive intelligence in the areas of leadership and decision-making, sales, and innovation.

  • Closing down the doors of Three Hats and my affiliation with EMyth. It’s been a great run of 7 years that has helped me get ready for this next chapter of my life. I want to thank all of people and training that helped me grow as a business coach and presenter over this time period, and all off the opportunities and doors that have opened as a result.

  • Making new friends and colleagues around the world and meeting many inspiring thought leaders who are here to impact this world for the better. I look forward to collaborating in the future. You know who you are 🙂


And What’s In-Store for 2019?

  • Decisive Intuition launches on 1 March, 2019!

Maintaining Your Invisible Edge

By | Blog, Culture, Decision Making, Intuition Basics, Invisible Edge, Sales | No Comments

Listening to your intuition helps you build and maintain your invisible edge in two different ways: it allows you a clearer picture of what’s happening in real-time in your environment, and it gives you clues looking into the future.

Real-Time Read Out

  • Better understand the unspoken, underlying needs of your customer
  • Detect when something feels “off” in your work space
  • Sense when a sales pitch is going flat and you are losing your audience
  • Act on a signal when something doesn’t look right on a spreadsheet or data set
  • Get the most out of each team member and detect early warning signs of disengagement
  • And much more…

Anticipating the Future

  • Lead in your industry
  • Stay a step ahead of the marketplace as you intuit trends
  • Improve forecasting tools
  • Create better strategy
  • Build better products and services
  • Continue to exceed customer expectations
  • And much more…

These are some of the outcomes that we help our clients achieve. You can gain an advantage when you promote intuitive intelligence in your company culture for smarter and more effective decision making.

If you want to learn more about how we do this, check out our Services page or email us. We look forward to helping you find your invisible edge.


Decisive Intuition: The Catalyst for Invisible Edge

By | Blog, Decisive Intuition, Invisible Edge | No Comments

There I was wrapping up the last chapter of my book, Decisive Intuition, when it dawned on me. I finally saw how I could teach intuitive skill-building to leaders and teams in a practical and grounded way that improves results from decision making to strategy, and from team engagement and sales to innovation.

I had found a niche that I’m passionate about, that combines the latest research in neurobiology, psychology, and my teams’ collective years of business acumen and experience to develop the most cutting-edge programs that help people get to their invisible edge in business and in life.

The fact is that the subconscious mind processes information 500,000 times faster than the conscious mind. Not only do we make faster decisions, we also make better decisions when we access our subconscious mind.

Some approaches label this as a ‘flow state’ when top performers and entertainers enter ‘the zone’ where they are at peak performance.

At Invisible Edge™, we’ve developed approaches and techniques to help you access your subconscious mind for faster and better decision making individually and with teams.

And it all started with the core principles of my book, Decisive Intuition, which guides you, the reader, on how to access your intuitive intelligence for better decisions and results.

Here’s what John Perkins, bestselling author of Confessions of an Economic Hitmanand other books has to say:

“The war cry of business, ‘maximize short-term profits,’ is based on non-intuitive, quantifiable data and is contrary to hundreds of thousands of years of human experience. It has driven us to the brink of environmental disaster — and social irresponsibility. Snyder does a masterful job in showing us how to develop and utilize our intuition for greater creativity, innovation, and a form of leadership that can guide us back from that brink.”

I’m excited to share this work with you. Stay tuned next week for a surprise!

Best Regards,


Invisible Edge: How Did We Get Here?

By | Blog, Invisible Edge | No Comments

Intuition is a paradox. One one hand, it seems very elusive. We can’t touch it, taste it, see it, or smell it, but we all know when we’ve had that gut sense when something feels ‘right on’ or ‘off the mark,’ no matter what our logical mind might tell us, in a way that we can’t explain.

Sometimes we just inherently know something to be true in our bones. It’s unshakeable. And when we don’t listen to these inner messages, we often pay a price. Think about a moment in your business or in your life, when you got a clear signal about a decision to make, and you ignored or glossed over it. What was the outcome?

What if there was a way to learn how to better recognize your inner wisdom through your own unique signals and cues that informed your decision making? What if you learned how to separate strong emotions like fear or over-excitement, doubt, or the loud voices and agendas of others so that you can tune into what your own inner data is telling you?

Invisible Edge™ started because everyone on our team has had these moments, and recognize how little intuitive intelligence is developed, let alone discussed, in the boardrooms and hallways of businesses around the world.

And yet we have also experienced how deeply fulfilling and impactfully rich it is when we have learned to trust ourselves in our ability to navigate this noisy world more skillfully through tuning into our inner guidance at key moments, that changes the course of a business or a life.

If you are curious to learn about developing your own invisible edge for more effective decision making and innovation, contact us at

Also, check out my upcoming book, Decisive Intuition—which is now available for pre-orders—to learn more about how to develop intuitive intelligence with real-world business applications that separate you from the crowd.

Best Regards,

The Invisible Edge

As mentioned in last week’s blog, we are transitioning Three Hats into a whole new business venture that is focusing on developing Intuitive Intelligence for leaders and teams.

This transition of this new direction and inspired purpose dawned on me in writing the last chapter of my book, Decisive Intuition.

What got clear is that I’m inspired to help people gain the confidence to listen to, trust, and act on their inner guidance in their business and in their lives. I know for myself the benefits of when I make decisions from this place, and the consequences of when I don’t.

A Deeper Source

We all have access to a deeper source of intelligence that we often ignore or disregard throughout the day. Especially when we feel stress, pressure, or are overly-influenced by the data and analytics outside of us, or the louder voices in the room.

You know what I’m talking about. Those moments when you look back and you knew that you should have listened to that feeling or message that you received — and disregarded. In fact you might still be kicking yourself for it.

Well, what if you can learn to identify your intuitive signals and cues earlier on and include them in your decision-making process for more creativity, innovation, and impact?

That’s what our new company, Invisible Edge™ is about.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be unveiling our new website and some of the new services and programs that give companies and organizations an invisible edge over their competition, as they learn to integrate their inner wisdom with the best of their data and analytics.

Excited to share this unfolding journey with you!

Three Hats Transition

By | Blog, Invisible Edge | No Comments

Business, just like life, is dynamic and all about transitions.

And we can choose to go with the flow or resist them. And each side has its own benefits and drawbacks.

When we live from our highest values, we might notice over time that we feel drawn to new orientations to our work, social life, career paths, life style choices, and getting even more clear about what’s important to us.

And when we are in alignment with our highest values, we have more meaning, growth, and a sense of purpose and fulfillment.

One of the transitions that I’ve been inside of for a year or more is with Three Hats. We have been coaching businesses since 2011 and have thoroughly grown with and enjoyed working with so many incredible leaders and teams over the years globally.

People, like you, who are trying to bring their best forward every day, deal with all of the challenges that come along with the journey, and provide and amazing life for yourselves and families.

There has been a birth of new expression and orientation to business and business growth that feels fresh, bold, and timely, that I’m excited to announce in the course of this next month.

Teaser: there is a new company name, look and feel, team, and most importantly, mission, that we’ll be shortly announcing, that’s centered around developing intuitive intelligence for leaders and teams in the business space.

One of my dreams is to help business leaders and cultures improve their decision making, leadership and innovation through learning to integrate the best of their inner wisdom with the data and analytics at-hand for even better decisions that are in alignment with our highest values. And this is the first step.

And it starts with the announcement that my upcoming book, Decisive Intuition, is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for pre-orders!

It would mean a lot to me if you checked this out, read the description, and if our material interests you, to support this movement through placing your order today!

Thank you for being part of our community and we look forward to bringing you along with us to the next destination of personal fulfillment and business intelligence.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks to learn more about what’s next.

To your success and fulfillment,

Rick Snyder

Moving to London!

By | Blog, Invisible Edge | No Comments


We have exciting news here at Three Hats. We are moving our central operations to London! We will still have a strong presence in the US as most of our team members are based there.

As most of you know, I have been living in the South of France for the past three years with the main aim of writing and publishing my book.

Well, mission accomplished! I have written Decisive Intuition: Use Your Gut Instincts To Make Smart Business Decisions, and found a publisher (Red Wheel/Weiser) who also sees the opportunity in this niche. The book will be launching via bookstores and Amazon links near you, in March 2019. I’m going through the final rounds of editing as we speak.

I now get why F. Scott Fitzgerald and Hemingway came to the South of France to write as it has been the perfect environment with inspired landscapes, azure-colored Mediterranean waters, and the beginning of the Alps to the north.

That being said, I’m now moving into a building and launching phase where you will soon see new services, team members, products and markets that are based on my upcoming book on how to help your company and teams tap into their intuitive intelligence for greater decision making, innovation, and leadership.

Intuition applied in a business relevant way for an invisible edge over your competition.

And London feels like the right next place to grow. It’s a vibrant, entrepreneurial, and very international community that is alive with innovation, technology, and challenging old ways of doing business.

If you are in the London area, I’m looking forward to working in-person with a focus on leadership, management, and sales leaders and teams. And for those of you outside the London area, we will still be well-connected through video conferencing.

For more information on coaching, speaking, or training, reach out to us at

We appreciate you staying connected with our journey and we are all very excited to share what’s coming down the pipeline in the coming months.

To your success,
