Set your DVR on Giving

Set your DVR for Paper Angels which makes its debut tomorrow (7 ET). Susan and I had the opportunity to see its preview last week. Paper Angels is a beautiful story. And it is a true story.


Country music’s Jimmy Wayne ( wrote Paper Angels and it shares a lot about his life. Sarah and Susan and I had the opportunity to spend a little time talking with Jimmy the week prior to the preview. He is amazing. You can spend time with Jimmy and I encourage you to do so…

Jimmy’s full life story is SUPER powerful. He experienced more than any of us should need to experience. And yet he shines light. He documented it in full in “Walk To Beautiful” (it hit the NY Times Best Seller list this month!)

Set your DVR. You won’t be sorry.

Have someone on your Christmas list and you are not sure what to get them? Get them “Walk To Beautiful”. Positive people will be inspired. Negative people and people living in pain may see light. Truly a beautiful story. Gift yourself with it.


This E-Commerce Book is a “Must Have” and “Must Recommend”

Looking for an easy read with ideas you can put in practice immediately for your E-Commerce? For less than the price of the coffee I just bought, this book provides great advice! I usually feel great about a book if I get even a couple actionable steps. This book is filled with actionable steps. The E-Commerce experience of the authors comes through and their clarity of presentation makes this book a “must have” and “must recommend”. Well done!

Crush Your E-Commerce Marketing

PS – John Price, one of the authors, is my son-in-law. John has built and sold multiple businesses already in his young entrepreneurial career and one of his current businesses has gone from $0 to over $4MM in 18 months. He ran social media for Vail Corporation’s Beaver Creek Resort and has continually been a “go to guy” on all things E-Commerce. I am excited to see the success he is enjoying and even more excited to see how he and his associates are not keeping their great information to themselves. You get more by sharing. Thank you for sharing!

You can purchase “Crush Your E-Commerce Marketing” here.

If I could recommend only one book for your business library, this is it

Rockefeller Habits has truly been one of the most important business books I have read in my professional career. Here is V2.0 from Verne Harnish, titled “Scaling Up: How a Few Companies Make It…and Why the Rest Don’t (Rockefeller Habits 2.0)”.

I have dog-eared V1.0 of the book, gifted it, bought it for my Kindle, … And I have used Verne’s templates in many businesses over the years (his One-Page planning work is excellent and is updated in his new book.)

Want one book for your business library that stays by your side? This is it.


Here are the links for the Kindle Edition or Hard Cover book.

Are you living the life of your dreams? Want to?

Susan and I want to give away a life-changing experience to two of you!

Are you living the life of your dreams? In all categories? If not, why not??


Lifebook is a complete life-development system for creating your very best life. Lifebook guides you step-by-step as you define your very best future, create a detailed plan to accomplish it and implement your plan inside a support system. I have attended many personal development programs over the years. Lifebook surpasses them all.

The 12 Lifebook Categories: Health and Fitness, Intellectual Life, Emotional Life, Character, Spiritual Life, Love Relationship, Parenting Life, Social Life, Financial Life, My Career, Quality of Life, and Life Vision.

Susan and I attended Lifebook in January 2013. It rocked our world! Married 30 years at the time, we truly experienced 30 year breakthroughs in our relationship. Areas that were good became GREAT! It helped us spot blindspots in our relationship. It gave us a common language to grow. We defined our goals in each of the 12 categories. We emerged with great clarity as to where we wanted to go next on life’s great journey.

We have given our children many gifts over the years. Nothing compares to the gift of Lifebook. Lifebook rocked our world… and, since gifting it to them, it has rocked theirs as well!

We want to give a gift. Except we couldn’t decide who to gift this to next… so we are letting any of you who are interested put your name on the drawing list. Normally when you enter a drawing there is no incentive for you to tell anyone else (it would decrease your odds.) So we decided to give you 3 additional entries for every person you share your entry with.

The first person drawn will receive the gift of Lifebook Live (US$2995 value) in Chicago in November, December or January (your choice)! The second will receive MyLifebook Online (US$995 value) so you can experience Lifebook in the comfort of your own home!

If you have any questions about the Lifebook program, feel free to call me at (615) 942-0870 or email me at

If you are going to spend time four days writing your life plan in the Live Session, you should be comfortable…. And you certainly will be! Here is the beautiful room for the live Lifebook program! Light breakfasts, great snacks, awesome lunches are all included!

The Power of Technology to Save an Outbreak of Ebola

Technology brings us many capabilities. Arguably one of the most powerful uses is improving communication. That means getting better information out and getting it out faster.

Like any power, it can be used for good or bad. For an example of some good and mostly bad I recommend reading: “Trust Me I’m Lying” by Ryan Holiday. I recently completed this book and it truly plumbs the depths of our blog and social media world and how it can be harnessed to move mountains — whether or not the mountains should be moved.

fatu-300x168On the “good use of technology” side, our world is facing challenging health issues — How do you control the outbreak of Ebola? Communication is a key element of the solution. Fast information sharing is critical.

Ebola is killing thousands and has now jumped the ocean to North America. It is not only spreading as a disease, but as fear. A little bit of information can go a long way to helping a tragic situation. Through trusted networks we can help get positive and helpful information to each other and, through the wonders of great search engines, others can then find it as well. To that end, the DENT Conference team circulated an article today that shared how a 22 year old reduced the Ebola death rate from its normal 70% to 25% in her family. Still tragic. Yet truly life changing at the same time. It is a great read and provides quick education and facts that may be helpful to someone you know.

I got into technology in the first place when I saw the positive benefits that technology was bringing to people with temporary and permanent disabilities to communicate. This important research was being done by MBA students at the University of Manitoba. It changed my career path. In our connected world, the power of technology to improve communications is indeed life changing.

How do you use technology to improve communication and lives? Please share with us via the comments below.
