" Always Arrive in a Room Thinking There you Are ”


When you arrive in any situation where you are investing time with the members of your team, what is your state of mind? Do you walk into the meeting thinking “I am here” or do you walk into the room thinking “there you are” Both states elicit very different responses from both you and the people you are dealing with. When you arrive in a room, focusing your energy on your own self-importance, with your chest puffed up looking around to see who has noticed that you have arrived. You…

" Negative Emotions are Normal and Part of any Success Journey "

Conference Speakers

We live in a non-authentic world where we have unrealistic expectations, caused because the society 

in which we live, has misled us to believe that everything in our world should be positive all the time. The unrealistic pressure we are placed under by our peers and from society at large, tell us that, unless we are perfect all the time, outperforming everyone around us, making more …

Business Lessons I Learned Caddying for my Grandfather

When I was young, I used to get up very early in the morning to caddy for my Grandfather.    We used to head down to City Park in New Orleans, meet up with some of his friends, and I would get to ride in his cart and hand him whatever club he asked for.

And, my Grandfather was an EXCELLENT golfer. When he was much younger, he had been invited to be a Pro Golfer; but he chose to work in the Post Office  (he eventually had 8 children, and golfers did not quite make the money in those…

" Success does not happen in a Day, it takes place Daily "

Do you think you just wake up one day and success has just arrived with huge fanfare and a ticker tape parade? No success is the result of thousands of hours of concentrated and focused effort on the part of the person who is enjoying the fruits of their labour. Although to everyone around them, it  looks like they achieved their success overnight. The same is true of failure; it is not one cataclysmic event, it is the result or rather the accumulation of years of poor thinking or…

Using HARO to Help Promote Your Network

I recently stumbled upon a very handy website called HARO. HARO or Helpareporter.com is a website that matches reporters with sources for stories, articles and TV, etc. My first thought was that I might use it to help get my nonprofit organization SOFA get more exposure. As I started looking through the many, many request for sources that fell outside of my area or expertise I immediately started thinking about the different people in my network that might be good sources for these article…

" Are You Playing To WIN OR Are You Playing NOT To Lose? "

Let me ask you a question.

You don’t have to tell me, only YOU will know the answer… YET it accurately predicts your level of success.

The question is…

Are You Playing To WIN OR Are You Playing NOT To Lose?

Now before you answer, because I know what we all would say out loud, I want you to think about what you are REALLY saying to yourself internally.

See most people do what they do because the HAVE TO.

It’s something we’re conditioned with from the early…

Here are some examples from the workplace (though I could easily give you a longer list outside of work too):
  • I can’t learn it that way (it’s not my learning style).
  • I need to know this first, so until I know that I can’t . . .

  • No one…
