Are you ready for the wave of opportunity coming your way?

Wow, last year was truly an eventful year with EVERYthing in it.
My frequent flyer miles accumulated quicker than the national debt (if that is possible) as I raced across the country speaking, conducting workshops, strategizing, planning and consulting with professionals and entrepreneurs affected by big changes in their industry and 180 degree shifts in consumer behavior and attitudes.

Change always creates opportunity. It helps you grow.

Look! It doesn’t matter how good you are at what you do, there is a monster growth wave on the 2014 horizon, and if you are not positioned to ride it, you may get wiped out by surprise as your competitors cruise by you.

Change is inevitable. Often it is difficult. Some of it we can prepare for, some happens without warning and leaves us feeling as if we have no control. But no matter what, you can always make the choice to learn, grow and make the most of what is available to you now.
I was taken completely by surprise at the beginning of the year when my dear friend and business partner, Michelle, was suddenly diagnosed with a very aggressive disease- already in advanced stages. While Michelle’s passing in June 2013, was a terrible loss to me personally, as well as to the business, it gave me the impetus to re-imagineer a new vision for the future of my business and refocus on what is important, while appreciating the many blessings I enjoy.

I encourage you to take a moment now to consider your blessings and imagineer a bigger, brighter, more compelling vision for your business and your life. Then join me later this month at the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce to see how our kickass, high achievers programs can help you make it happen.

The Genius Behind a Giant

Behind a Giant

Thomas Watson, the genius behind IBM’s success whose motto was simply, “THINK”, said there were THREE reasons for his success:
The FIRST was that at the very beginning, he formed a clear picture, a vision, of what he wanted the company to ultimately look like. The SECOND was that he thought about how a company that looked that way, would need to act.

The THIRD reason, was that: AFTER he had the vision of how IBM would look AND how it would need to ACT in order to LOOK that way, he realized, that unless they acted that way from the very beginning, it simply would not happen…..

Imagine the possibilities if every day, all the people in your organization showed up with that kind of vision — supported by action.

Join me for a free workshop at the Fort Lauderdale of Chamber Commerce and bring your vision to life. For details and registration see our Upcoming Events.

The History of Mastermind Groups

The Mastermind Group concept was made famous by Napoleon Hill in his 1928 work, The Law of Success, but the idea dates back to antiquity.

Most great leaders and achievers throughout the ages have consistently surrounded themselves with like-minded, trusted advisors who could help them improve their ideas and advance their performance.

The US Constitution and the University of Pennsylvania are two examples of what can happen when people “put their minds together“ for a common purpose in such a group.

“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind” -Napoleon Hill

Napoleons Hill’s work was originally commissioned by Andrew Carnegie. It was based upon interviews of over 100 American millionaires over a twenty year period, among them self-made industrial giants, Henry Ford, J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison.

Mastermind Groups:

If the best and brightest business leaders swear by them, shouldn’t you explore the possibilities too?
Mastermind groups are increasingly being used by business owners and leaders to solve their biggest problems while providing a healthy dose of inspiration, motivation, and accountability,

For solo-entrepreneurs who want to grow profitably, it is a “Must Have.”

The advantage of a professionally facilitated Mastermind Group is that you have the added value of a coach, drawing from their wealth of experience. We also supplement our mastermind groups with private personal coaching so that each participant can “right-size” and tweak solutions and ideas for their own unique situations.

A good facilitator typically holds members to a higher standard of accountability and ensures that each member has an equal voice.
Applications for 2014 groups are now being considered. Please see our programs page for details.
