Success Systems: From Good to Great!



It’s safe to say that we live in a society that produces a variety of personalities. Some ambitious, some lacking judgment, some that have a plan, and others that don’t. There are many walks of life, and many in the relentless pursuit of happiness. For as long as I can remember, I have been one of those people, seeking security in the achievement of goals, the excitement of follow through, and the reward of hard work. The key relief, or what many call , ” The method to the madness” seems so attainable at times, yet then again, there are days when it may feel as far away as can be. Before I was informed that these emotions associated with the journey itself are normal, I thought myself to be a crazy person, chasing the wind. I have come to see that success is extremely in the cards for us a

7 Things Business Owners Should Do to Prepare Your Business for the New Year



new-year-2015

At this time of the year, business owners are busily preparing for the New Year.  Or maybe I should say that I hope they are…

I read an article recently that said that more than 50% of business owners don’t plan, they just let business happen to them.  And I hope that you, like I, are cringing at the thought of not planning to be successful in your business.  This instantly brings to mind one of my favorite alliterations:

Prior planning prevents piss poor performance.

If you want to shift from the almost 90% of business owners who aren’t making more than $100,000 a year in their business (according to the US SBA and IRS’s 2011 survey) a little planning can go a long way. That’s exactly why hearing from Shara got me excited – I answer her question in this week’s episode of Incredible Facto

Transformation



Pete Caroll

Since the release of my book The 7 Principles of Faith-Based Parenting I have had many conversations about the power of Principle parenting. Coupled with the fact that I am a youth coach, I have been looking at the role of both the parent and coach in the development of young people.

The parallel between parenting and coaching is so definite in fact, I believe that outside of parenting coaching athletes might be the best platform to transform boys and girls into healthy and thriving men and women.

Although most of my recent personal coaching work has been in helping individuals doesn’t only identify their dreams and goals and help them bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to go. I have spent twenty years coaching athletes while simultaneously coaching coaches and what

What Kobe Teaches Us About Winning!



Of risks and rewards, Facebook founder and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg says, “The biggest risk is not taking any risks. In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” I know what you’re thinking; it’s easy for someone to scream take risks when they’re financially solid and already running a huge organization. But the truth is, in our everyday lives taking risks can be a tough journey to embark upon. Often the consequences can be more than we are willing to wager.

What it boils down to is we cannot expect great rewards without putting great risks on the line. I witnessed this firsthand the other night while watching Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers surpass yet another milestone in his already stellar NBA career. On a typic

Problems in Ferguson Extend Beyond Grand Jury Decision



ferguson blog pic

The problems in Ferguson, Missouri, will continue long after the Grand Jury’s final decision. The tensions in the community will undoubtedly be exacerbated if the US Justice Department declines to pursue civil rights violations against Officer Darren Wilson. The real problem in Ferguson is the fact that the residents are stuck with a police department that seemingly lacks ethnic diversity, appears racially insensitive and is unwilling to admit changes within are necessary. The problems on the Ferguson police Department  are cultural and systemic.

As a retired, twenty-year veteran police sergeant I reject the notion that a professional, tactically trained, gun-toting police officer would “fear” an unarmed teenager. Police officers receive an inordinate of training- first in the academy and

5 Things You Must Do to Keep (and Convert) Visitors to Your Website



website

Now, I am so sure that when you hear me say this, you’re going to gasp for air:

Spending a lot of money to build a website is a waste.

Yup, I said it.  After all, people only come to your website for two reasons: to buy something or to join your list so they can stay in touch until they are ready to buy something.  Period.

I meet business owners all the time who think the first thing they need to do when they start their business is get a website.  But that’s not necessarily true. To make my point, I have three (3) clients right now who all did in excess of $300,000 in the last year with no website.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  You SHOULD have a website but you don’t need to go broke trying to build one.  Instead you need to make sure that you maximize a few things to increase your conversio

Gratitude



bike bridge

Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful, a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.  When I think about gratitude in terms of God and being “grateful” for the things he has done for me I wonder what the quality of my thankfulness is.  I thing about the times when I have done something for someone, even when it is out of my own desire or volition, I still want a sign of gratefulness such as a thank you. If that gratefulness is of a higher quality (i.e. passionate or heartfelt) I feel like doing even more for that person.

When we are thankful, our focus moves off selfish desires and off the pain of current circumstances.  By expressing thankfulness we remember that God is in control.  Thankfulness, then, is not only appropriate, but it is actually healthy and

Tribute to Amazing Grace



Amazing Grace
A Tribute 

Gramma wedding

Someone we love is gone. Some of us have lost a friend, a favorite Aunt, a Great Aunt, a listening ear, a loving Grandmother. My sister, my brother, and I have lost our confidante, a rock- solid, faithful, secret-keeping mother, who will never again come for a visit, never again linger in quiet, meet for thoughtful conversation, never again laugh with us about anything, and never again ask us to run to the grocery store to get her a pint of chocolate ice cream…

In preparation for this memorial service, I did some time travel this week and what I recalled was a beautiful model of a wife and mother, a phenomenal gift to her children and grandchildren, a supportive and loving wife, and most of all, a person whose very spirit magically made others feel special, someho
