I attended an Entrepreneurs Luncheon the other day, and Rick Bayless was the presenter.  As an incredibly successful entrepreneur, he was a great choice to speak about his rise to fame and fortune.  Just kidding about the fame and fortune, he is an incredibly understated “Celebrity”.  There was no mention of fame and fortune, he.. read more →

A New Way Of Thinking About Your Elevator Pitch! The mistake we make is in thinking that our 60 second elevator pitch is the end.

Have you lost your Mojo?

August 23, 2010

Sometimes, when I am speaking at an event, it feels as if  many  people in that room  have lost their Mojo!   I mean, they may have lost their passion for their work, and for their business.  When I talk about the joy and excitement our work must have, it feels like I am looking out.. read more →

Remarkable You!

August 12, 2010

In order to be remarkable, you must stand out.   You must take a stand for something.  It’s time to place your stake, throw your hat in the ring, and burn that bridge.  I am in the mood apparently for cliche’s.  You must decide that you are the “one and only”, the big kahuna, the.. read more →
