The Challenge That Will Change Your Life

When I am working with clients we inevitably get around to the story of how I discovered the material and concepts that I teach. I have to tell you, when I found this information I was probably the most miserable person on the planet.  I tell people that I was essentially a “Vulcan” (for you Trekkies out there) – I had been badly scarred from the way my marriage ended and had essentially shut myself off from emotion – I didn’t allow myself to “feel” things. I was a hermit… I left the house to go to work and to […]

Goal Achieved!! Now What?

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!  You set a HUGE goal, you took daily consistent action toward it, you’ve been imagineering your life having achieved this particular milestone for months – maybe even years –  and the day has finally arrived! You’ve landed the big client… You’ve earned a million dollars… You’ve taken the dream vacation… You’ve purchased that car or home that you’ve been dreaming about… You’ve lost that last pound… Whatever it is that represents true success to you, you’ve achieved it. And you find yourself looking around, feeling a little bit lost, thinking, “Okay, NOW what?” You don’t dare voice that question […]

A Case for Character and Integrity

In business as well as in personal matters, people strive to be perceived as having good character and integrity. A person’s character and integrity are defined by their willingness to do the right thing when no one is looking. Think about that for a moment… It is easy to do the right thing when you are in the spotlight – when you have an audience. But it takes courage and great strength of character to do the right thing when no one is looking… … or when everyone around you is doing the wrong thing. … or when popular opinion […]

The Funniest (and Saddest) Thing I Hear…

When I am working with corporate clients and teams whose goal is to quantum leap the revenue of their company, I am shocked by how many times I hear some variation of the following sentences: “But, I’m not in sales…” or “I don’t do sales…” Really? And the funniest (and saddest) part is that it’s not just clients that I hear this from… I remember a few years back, shortly after Angie bought into our company, I suggested that she attend a seminar I was giving on sales and how to intuitively sell to prospects. I will NEVER forget her […]

Aim-Fire-Ready in Action… Again

I witnessed yet another example of “Aim – Fire – Ready” this week and it’s a doozie, so I’m going to let Angie tell you all about it, since she did all the work. Seriously? Will I NEVER learn? Okay, so here’s how it went down. I was laying in bed minding my own business, reading the latest issue of Fitness Magazine and they had an article about training for a Sprint Distance Triathlon. I was reading it because doing a tri has been on my bucket list for some time now. I was actually training for one back in […]

My Secret to Skyrocketing Productivity

Back in October, Angie and I met with a business strategist (yes, remember way back when I told you that even coaches need coaches?) and it was a crazy meeting. Angie even ended up in the bathroom in tears at one point! At the end of the exhausting day of strategic planning, we had our marching orders and ONE of the action items was to write a new book – PRONTO! Now most of you know the Release story and how Angie cranked that manuscript out in 10 weeks. Could we do it again? But see, the problem was, we […]

Who Do You Listen To?

Several years ago when I made the decision to make some serious changes in my life regarding my personal life, my career, my financial life, etc., I knew what I wanted to achieve, but I had no clue what I needed to do first. My goals were way beyond anything I had done in my life to that point and it became clear to me early on if I ever wanted to reach my goals I needed to find someone who had achieved the things I was striving for to teach me what I needed to do. So, I found […]

The 4 Pillars of Success

There is no doubt in my mind that I was destined to be in the military – I was born with all the raw material that makes for good soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines. I have always craved discipline and structure and I seem to innately systemize everything. These characteristics were honed to a razor sharp edge, both in the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets, and in the Air Force; however, once I left the military and started working in industry, I was dumbfounded! How did the U.S. economy continue to prosper when corporate America operated so haphazardly? Military units […]
