If you are in need of referrals, then create a referral blurb. This is a prepared e-mail template that you can send to associates and partners for them to forward to people they know that could perhaps benefit from your services. By supplying the e-mail, you are not putting the burden on the person you are asking to give you a referral to take the time to create an e-mail to send. As you know, everyone is busy, so the easier you make it for someone, the more chances you have of them actually…Continue
You took the time to go to a networking event and now you have a pocketful of business cards. Most of the time you toss them on the table and never look back. Or, you reach out once and give up. You wonder why you even bothered to go to the event. You talked to a lot of great people, but you don’t feel it helped you get any closer to obtaining clients.
To get the full benefits of going to a network event, you must do the work required after attending the event! This is where many…
One of our callers asked a very interesting question - “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing in 10 years?”
As it turns out, that question, and ones similar to it, have been showing up a lot lately in her circle of friends.
She probably wasn't expecting one of the comments I made to her, early-on, in the call - that the unrest she and her girlfriends were sharing was…Continue

Although it’s already fall, I was not in the fall mood. Not until my kids decided to carve pumpkins this weekend. The picture shown is their pumpkin carving handiwork. I think they did an amazing job. I love the changing seasons here in Kentucky. The fall harvest, the changing colors of the trees, and of course the fall sports season.Continue
Say what you will about this guy, one thing is for sure - he will not leave you guessing. (Jump to the podcast.)
For me, excuses pop up quickly when I don't have a system that's conducive to my energy and overall growth. Something that gives me a real reason to do it!
There are important things that need to be done, such as paying bills, and organizing paperwork, which just takes too much time and gets me off focus. Without a purpose, I don't like doing them, and will always come up with excuses not too.
However, it all changed when I converted all of this to…Continue

As he watched his father develop chronic back problems as he aged not so gracefully in his long-time factory job, he made a promise to himself that he would never take a position like the one he saw his dad grow to despise. (Jump to the full article and podcast.)

Great day ahead of me at a coaching seminar intensive with my speaking coach Kent Julian and the rest of our mastermind crew. This is exciting stuff as we’re gathered in one room to put help support each other and bring each of our visions to life.
Just a couple weeks ago, I was at Dan Miller’s Write to the Bank event in Tennessee. That was another positive and fulfilling step towards the development…Continue

Who wouldn’t want to grow in their favorite roles in life? Are you truly happy just sitting idle? Are you truly happy with letting the world move forward and you stay right where you are? What if I told you that our past has a gravitational pull? It seeks to pull us back, or as though it were a universal law to naturally draw us back even further in time away from the possibilities of advancement.
Ladies and gentleman, what I’m introducing you to here is the sole resistance…Continue

We hear a lot about the economy in almost everything we do. I mean, statements about the economy really get played out, don’t you think?
It’s the economy this… it’s the economy…Continue
When I was in the corporate world we had the hard workers, and the not-so-hard workers. Of course, for the most part you could tell who enjoyed their work, and who did not by the effort and heart they put into it. There was a lot of complaining. Whether you worked hard or not, there was always something wrong with how someone else was…Continue

Well, I may have never really been the sharpest tool in the shed according to any “norm” survey, but I realized a wonderful gift that God gave me. I’ve always had it, but never realized it until I unveiled a fundamental truth about myself in the deepest identity struggles of my life.…Continue
What is your world to you? Does it consist of growing up in a family home, going to church every Sunday, going to school, getting good grades, listening to instructions and following rules, get to college, graduate, get married, get a job, get in debt, have children, teach those children to do the same things you did, retire at 65 (we hope) with tons of debt, and with children who have great…Continue

When you pray for peace, does God give you peace, or does He give you the opportunity to learn how to make peace?
When you pray for wisdom, does God give you wisdom, or does He give you the choice to grow into someone who is wise?
When you pray for courage, does God give you courage, or does He give you the option to develop courageousness?

What meaning is there to life, if we were to only be allowed to dream but not act on our dreams? Dreams are essential to the growth of our world. If there were no dreams, there would be no one to act on those dreams and create the magnificent structures, nations, monuments, sciences, and technologies of today.…
There is a spirit within all of us that desires to express itself, be free of judgment, and conformity. It is the creative spirit that always seeks the higher plane and level of life. It wants to grow; it wants to be the best it can be. It wants to acquire many riches and resources, so that it can live fully and be a blessing to everyone…Continue

Success is a misconceived word by most. I was considered successful at certain points, but was not always successful to myself. Primarily because at the time, I may have felt I was climbing the wrong ladder. Now, I understand that it was part of the process of my growth and development.…
