Hi Team...

Happy Monday.

I have to tell you- from a business perspective, this is my favorite week of the year!

Let me tell you why....

This week is we hit the magical date of September 1st.

That means, summer is wrapping up.

Labor day is around the corner.

And as sad as it is in the Northeast to let summer go- it is symbolic of it being time to go.

Time to get going.

Time to challenge yourself.

Time to wrap up this year and make it a full out sprint to the finish.

If you are like me, you set some goals for yourself early this year.

Where are you at?

Have you taken an inventory?

Well- if you haven't, do so now.

Are you on pace?

Off pace?

Do you have things going in the pipeline?

Where are you at?

How is your energy?

How is your body weight?

How is your body fat?

How does your body and mind feel?

How is your business pacing?

How are you doing as a leader>

How is your revenue?

How are you doing?

I am checking in with you.....

Now, check in with yourself.

I believe taking a life-snapshot is critical to any high performer and is the reason why high performers either finish victorious or finish of their mark.

Got it?

So, let September 1st be that magical day that kicks your butt into gear....

I want you to lace up, strap-on, and get going so we can make this year a win.

For many of you, I have been coaching you all year.

It is time.

It is time we cut any bullshit and get after it.

And, since we have been on the theme of TEAM, bring somebody along with you.

If each of you grab a buddy, a teammate and tell them: We are going to spring hard together from September 1st till the end, they will say Yes.

If they are the right teammate- they will say Yes.

Do not do it alone.

That is what coaching is all about- never letting a person go at their goals and dreams alone.

Now, you have a short time to get ready for the sprint- get clear, get a teammate, and run like hell at your goals.


Never forget that.

Got it?

And this year- since I am coaching you each morning- we can not lose.

I am holding you accountable to Victory.

Let's go.

Let's make it happen.

Bring the energy.

Bring the fire.

Bring the passion and the fury.....

Your Coach,
