It was March 3, 2012. I had started going to a Law of Attraction Meetup in Oklahoma City 5 months earlier in October 2011. Mainly to be around like-minded people to share and discuss ideas and thoughts about life. It was a great group. Our organizer’s name was Andrea Foster. The group was mostly 50+ year old ladies but we … Read More

As I sit here in my apartment in Marietta, Georgia listening to the happy clamor of Levi playing Lego Batman on XBox, I am reminded of some of my best times ever personally and professionally. You see, for over a decade I have been teaching the simplicity of marketing using proven systems. … Read More

Today I was thinking about enthusiasm. According to Google, enthusiasm is defined as “intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval”. This led me to think about being at events where they encourage you to shout and yell and scream and jump “to show your enthusiasm”.

For those of you who were there I ask that you don’t name names either, and if you feel you must, please do so outside my … Read More

The phone call I just finished urged me to “come speak at my event next weekend”. And I said yes. The problem was I only had maybe $16 in cash to my name. My bank account was negative. And the event was in Las Vegas. I lived in Michigan at the time and flights would be at least $300 if … Read More

When I was in high school we didn’t have repeated school shootings. It’s a fact. Google it – the years were 1985-1989. And for you anti-gun people who get upset because you don’t find any school shootings reported during this time period to be outraged about, please realize this is not because it’s any kind of spin, much to your … Read More
