▪️So it’s 11:30 P.M. and all I know is this. I’m fucking tired, I am sore, my feet are raw from the Tae Kwon Do mat and my bed sounds amazing right now. But I also have a #PowerList and I know @andyfrisella wouldn’t want me bitching out and neither would I. I owe this page one post a day from the heart and I have an ambition to make #impact in a world needing it.
▪️Judgement is our topic today. Accepting that it is a harsh reality and will not ever become nonexistent. It will always be there, coated in malevolence, insecurity and arrogance. Ones bonded with this sadistic option of behavior will laugh, will talk behind your back and fall under the impression that they’re better. That what you do is wrong. What they do is right and that you are out of place and won’t be finding that place for a long time.
▪️But at the end of the day your path of choice is your path and only that. You have goals, chase them, you have ambitions, devour them, you have competitors, dominate them. Being unique is the way to a dream because without it, you might as well get in the crowd.
That right there is 3 of 5 bags of rubbish that our #cycleofchange crew picked up in 15 minutes from the park next to the skate park today during our program day! Keeping our communities clean isn’t just about the place looking better but about what’s right for the environment and keeping our world healthy for future generations of young shredders! Having a social conscience and being mindful of our environmental impact is just one of the life lessons we actively aim to instil in our Cycle of Change students! #getstoked#lighthouseyouthprojects#reducereuserecycle#reducerenewrecycle#getstokedforchange#cycleofchange2018
In an attempt to purchase a gift voucher for a restaurant recently I stumbled upon something crazy… businesses apparently, don’t like doing vouchers anymore.
Is it because it is more difficult than processing a payment? Are they scared they will go out of business? Whatever it is, they are missing an excellent opportunity.
I used to sell a reasonable number of gift vouchers a year and here is what I found (purely my experience):
1. A gift voucher is like a financially endorsed recommendation from a friend, family member or associate.
As a result, the leads that came to me via a voucher were easier to convert and had a greater than average lifetime value to my business.
2. Only about 30% of all gift vouchers were ever redeemed.
What does this mean to your business?
Vouchers are a valuable source of lead generation. You want to get them in the hands of your advocates (clients) and out into the community (leads). I had an offer for any existing clients. If they purchase a gift voucher, I will give them a second one of equal value free of charge. (Remembering only 30% were redeemed, so in theory, I could have given them a 3rd free and still be making more than my usual rate. If both claimed their voucher that is even better for me because their LTV was higher.)
To answer any impending questions about my low claim rate - I tried a number of things centred on registering the recipient so I could follow up. What I found was that my clients were less inclined to let me make the first move and my attempt to do so resulted in my voucher sales declining. So I stopped doing that. In the end, if I spent 5 minutes printing and presenting a voucher for a customer and made upwards of $100 for it, it was time well spent.
Do you offer gift vouchers? If you don’t, when will you start?

Webinars are great tools for revision, recalling and remembering (building deeper and entrenched hard wiring in your brain). It was refreshing and rejuvenating to gather a unique perspective of the 6 insights of the brain 🧠. Plan to use the brain language more as I inspire and nurture emerging leaders. Plan to develop and create more commonality in leadership communities that are inclusive and diverse. Chat with us at www.enible.com on how we bring results based leadership to levels of practicality and simplicity. #enible#resultsbasedleadership#brain#emergingleaders#impact#nurture#inspire#coach#6insights#NLI @neuroleadership_institute
Throwback picture of myself and my first mentor. I grew up in a not so good environment in the east side of Bakersfield, Ca. But, it was few individuals like Andrew "Dance Fever" Jones that kept me off the streets by allowing me to be part of his dance crew. I could have easily chosen to do bad in school and fall into peer pressure of drugs, alcohol, and gangs, but people like him gave me a sense of purpose to go beyond those negative factors. I still remember when our report cards would come in from school , he would ask us "how's your grades" if we had "D's" & "F's", we would be in big trouble ha and not be invited to dance competitions out of town. High school was hard at times trying to fit in with the rest of the crowd and follow what others were doing. But, you have to be willing to say "NO" and go Against All Odds. So, thanks to Dance Fever and a few others I did not become another STATISTIC. #mentor#impact#unite#impower#motivate#bakersfield#hood#againstallodds#respect#realrecognizereal#thewildcard#thankful

Purpose - a person's sense of resolve or determination.
Have you ever asked yourself why you do what you do? And if it’s truly what you were meant to do or become. Too often I see people who are unhappy because life is very mundane and they lack a sense of purpose and fulfilment. I used to feel that way too, I was unhappy and battling many internal issues but it wasn’t until I asked god to reveal to me what I’m meant to do that everything changed. The one word that I kept hearing was purpose. I wasn’t meant to be fearful, unhappy, purposeless and living a mundane life. I was born to be great and so were you. If you feel a lack of purpose and fulfilment, I may be able to shed some light on how that can change for you, feel free to reach out anytime
You really can make a difference in this world. What you do counts, is noticed and can have real impact. I’ve been meeting some people recently who feel overwhelmed when thinking how they can positively impact the biggest challenges we collectively face. Sometimes if I’m honest, on a bad day, when I haven’t had enough sleep, one of those people is looking straight back in the mirror at me. But not today. -
"Work while they sleep to live like they could only dream"
Spent the evening co-hosting a video chat for several new candidates trying to gain access to the mentorship program. Surrounding yourself with others that have high #standards will naturally elevate you to new heights!
Excited for all the growth we are experiencing under the guidance of @alexangle6 by leveraging his knowledge of developing long term income streams
I've just been reading about the Paleo diet. - an interesting idea - to eat like a caveman (Paleolithic man). I'm talking about eating the types of food that was available then, rather than adopting the table manners of a caveman.
The theory seems to be that our bodies were designed for the food available then but have not adapted to keep up with modern, 'processed' food (including dairy and grains). Before trying any new diet we should consider the impact on our bodies. Following the Paleo diet means removing food groups from our diets, which if not managed properly could lead to the removal of essential nutrients.
At this half-day IMPACT workshop we’ll be covering off:
