Hey Team!

Happy Monday.... we are back!

We are down to about 6-weeks left in 2019.... so you know what that means... time to dial it in...

Get focused, put on the blinders and fully commit to the projects you want and need to complete to put a cherry on top of this year!

Like I have been saying for the past few weeks..... 

We are using these next few weeks to build heavy momentum going into 2020....

This weekend I had the opportunity to speak at the Living to Inspire Festival in NYC- and man was it cool....

I had the chance to INSPIRE over 500 people to move closer towards THEIR DREAMS....

Their Dreams. Not the dreams of anybody else. 


You see, for so many there is just a lot of noise and confusion.... ultimately, that state leads to doubt and hesitation...

Meaning, you will never get to where YOU want and have been commissioned to go.

So, in the end, you will get frustrated, resentful, and live in a state of "I wish...."

And that my friends can not not happen.

As I looked out into the crowd.... I saw the eyes and hearts of those out there craving more....

They were craving autonomy from the masses... 

They just needed some Coaching and a Kick in the A$$ to get going....

I gave them permission.....

Here were a few of the Key Distinctions I shared:

✅Be the Influencer, Not the Influenced......

✅There are NO Rules.....

✅You ALWAYS Control the Energy in the Room...

✅Trust Your INSTINCTS....

✅Embrace Turbulence....

Action > Inspiration....

Inspiration is great.... but without Action... nothing will happen!

You see, when I put a keynote together- I am thinking about the ACTIONS I want those listening to take so they can do something amazing with their life... which, in turn, will do something amazing for others....

One thing I have learned through the years though, is that people love to talk... but they don't love to walk.

The walking takes work.

It takes guts.

It takes you putting yourself out there and maybe getting rejected and criticized. Well, definitely getting rejected and criticized. But who cares.

Those peoples thoughts and words have no power over you.

Everyday you need to commit to driving your confidence up.

It happens though repetitive play, practice, and action.....

So, as we head into this week.... 

Work. Get after it.

Move towards what scares you.

Make the call. Do the deal. Take ACTION.

Stop hiding and making excuses.


In the end, you will be amazed at what happens and how good you feel.

Trust yourself. Trust your team.

Go make it happen.

Let's GO!

Your Coach,
