A great end to Celebrating Women's Month

I had the opportunity to speak at the Lompoc Women's Federal Correction Center. Yes a prison. I accepted this speaking engagement to be able to share my story of overcoming my challenges. I had expected an audience of 80, which turned out to be 280, including the Warden and assistant Warden. The audience was dominated my men. When speaking I gets myself prepared, but the unknown is difficult to prepare for. Speaking at a federal prison I certainly did not know what to expect. 

What I…

Change your view and your success will skyrocket!

Here I am sitting at my desk in my new home office looking out to the west as the sun begins to make it's way down.  I see a beautiful fishing pond, a tree filled lot, beautiful homes, an amazing neighborhood and I have a great sense of peace deep within and I know that I am a success.  This view out my office window has simply served to remind me of God's blessings and goodness and that is a huge part of my success.  I mentioned that this is a NEW office because in my old office my desk was…

Take Advantage of the Open Windows

Take Advantage of the Open Windows

Remember the song “Turn! Turn! Turn!” by The Byrds? It is still a popular song on the classic rock / oldies radio stations and if you haven’t heard it on the radio I bet you have heard that song used in dozens of TV advertisements.

It is pretty much a straight adaptation from the book of Ecclesiastes.  The theme of the song and that book…

Belly to Belly is Best [VIDEO]

My with, Claudia, and I just made it back from a conference in Chicago on internet marketing. We had a great time meeting new people and attending the great seminars. Not to mention, we had the wonderful opportunity to spend time with one of our mentors, Dan Miller.

One of the things we realized once again on this trip was the value of meeting people in person. Blogs and social media are great and all, but your relationships and opportunities strengthen and grow when you share a cup…

Stuck in a rut? Five ideas that will pry you free.

There once was a man who, in his mid-20’s, found himself dug into a trench; doing the same type of work for roughly the same day’s pay, for six straight years.

An older man, a man who would later become his mentor, walked up to him and asked,”How come…

Fear of Failure?

Does fear of failure keep you from doing something meaningful?

Perhaps, it's really fear of success. Many people are comfortable with not taking risk. After all, how would you handle success?

Fear of failure or is it fear of…

The Opportunity of a Lifetime!

We often make decisions based on fear. When faced with a choice between comfort and uneasiness, we tend to side with comfort. Making that decision isn't necessarily correct or safe; it just appears to be less troublesome to our emotions. A child learns this at a young age and is able to manipulate a parent into seeing the desired outcome.

Are You Connecting with People?

Most people drowning in debt would be stressed out. Panic would be the normal agenda. Granted, the day I was informed of the bad news my head was spinning at times. But the relief to finally have the opportunity to develop my own business overshadows debt at the moment.

Does your Idea Mesh?

How many times have you had one of those: "wish I would've thought about that idea" moments? Or the times you've thought about a new idea, never acted upon it, only to discover later someone else initiated the same thought and became highly successful. The failure to act, take a risk or perhaps our financial capital limits our capabilities to

What if we gave you the tools to change the world?

What if you suddenly realized you have the ability and permission to do the impossible?

What If we could cure disease, prevent wars and feed the hungry?

We can.

Risk is Now the New Safe!

We see people in the workplace going through the motions, completing task after given task. A few of those folks take the time to add value to their work while most just see the cycle of repetition as a means to receive the next paycheck. Sometimes it's due to an overworked environment and less than optimal staffing; other times it's a case of employees accepting mediocrity.

Raw Opportunity Surrounds Us!

Our eyes observe all sorts of activity daily in our surrounding. Choices are constantly marketed as we drive, walk, or journey through media channels. We are so busy ingesting the messages, we often don't think to use our own imagination or envision a possibility towards the future. Visionaries like Zig Ziglar, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs are few and far between.

The Difference Makers!

Several days ago, I wrote a blog about the apparent political choices inducing a negative outcome between government, employers and employees. The day after the election some companies began to introduce massive layoffs and/ or the reduction of full-time jobs with benefits. I failed to cover some obvious positive possibilities during that blog due to time constraints. So let's talk about the upside to another seemingly down-economy.…

Missing the Obvious

I'm sure for God, it must be painful to hear us pray for something that was delivered last month but we do not yet see it.

Risk or Opportunity?

Since I stumbled upon this nugget of wisdom from Mr. Zig Ziglar, I have often used it to promote others through my writing. My first book was based on this philosophy. I wouldn't be surprised if the next book is written for someone special or the audience attached to that person.

How Can We Make It Possible?

Whether you are seeking a new career, job, or starting a new business a strategic breakdown of any goal makes anything possible, but let’s take it back to the underlining motivation that causes a strategic breakdown to even form.

Dreams are only dreams until someone decides to start deliberately living it out, but yet we still need dreams.

Visions in the sky are only visions, but without them we have no direction to move towards.…
