There are not enough words to describe how thankful I am for having such amazing parents. I know I don't always show how grateful I am enough, but I really am. Both of my parents have given me so much to be thankful for... .

Thank you for your endless amounts of love, even when I probably don't deserve it. .

Thank you for all your support, no matter what.

Thank you for making me believe I can accomplish anything I set mind to.

Thank you for knocking some sense into me when I'm acting rash.

Thank you for all the advice, even when I don't take it. You guys are always right.

Thank you for the "I love you" texts. They truly make my day. .

Thank you for always encouraging to live my life to fullest. .

Thank you for showing me what unconditional love means.

Thank you for giving me the life every child deserves, and being such wonderful parents. When I have children, I want to be just like you. .

Thank you for always being there for me. Without the two of you, I don't know where I would be. I realize I do not thank you enough for everything. And for that, I apologize. .

If I have learned anything from you, it is that you are the most important people in my life, and I love you both more than anything.

Decisions shape our destiny. The wrong decisions can lead us down the wrong path, whereas the right decisions can lead us down the right path. Sometimes, our best decisions are the ones that don't make any sense at all to anyone else but ourselves. It's in those moments of decision that our destiny is shaped..
.
Could have been HUGE, but couldn’t be HAPPIER it wasn’t.

While influencers are concerned only with the number of likes and followers, thought leaders are concerned with the sharing of knowledge and expertise—in other words, genuine VALUE ADD. I don’t care how many people see something, I care about how many people see something of value. Quality over quantity. Depth over width. Reach does not equal value and follower count doesn’t mean people are listening. Stop focusing on how many followers or likes you get and instead concentrate on making each post worth seeing. .
.
.
Bottom line: Followers does not equal ’influence’

If you want to be an entrepreneur, you have to be willing to take the shot. Your going to miss more than you make. You'll fail over and over and over again—that why you'll succeed. Those who are afraid to fail will coast though life and never come close to their potential. Failure--honest failure despite genuine effort--is an underrated teacher and motivator as well as a sign that one is striving at close to full capacity.

Successful entrepreneur do what others are not willing to do. They fail over and over again without the reluctance to take another shot. Keep taking your shot! .

You can't be lost if you don't care where you are. No GPS allowed. Lose the compass. Forget the phone. You never know what you might see when you turn off your autopilot. Or just take a turn down a different path and see where it goes.

The right book has to have that balance of facts and stories, inspiration and actions, and somehow leave you changed afterward.
.
Traction by Gino Wickman is a books that I would recommend to every entrepreneur. .
.
Successful companies aren't the first ones to the market. The best startups aren't the ones with the most original product. (Ask Myspace, Yahoo, or Vine.) Startups rise and fall on the traction they have at operational levels. You can have the best idea in the world, but if your production process is garbage, you'll never make a dime. Traction is the easiest way to bring your company in line with your goals.

Recently published an article about how "Successful Entrepreneurs Didn't do it Alone.” on @incmagazine . First-time entrepreneurs are always wide-eyed with ambition (as they should and need to be). They believe that their idea is the idea -- and it very well might be. They think, know, are beyond convinced, that everyone in the world will want what they are hawking. I have managed my own marketing agency for the past ten years. When I first started the company at which I currently work, I thought I could do everything myself. In fact, I thought I had to. While most people wanted to help, and could do a lot of things better than me, I was overly protective. I was unwilling to share my ideas with non-paying clients, I was reluctant to share my best ideas with employees, all because I believed only I was capable of bringing them to life. I finally learned, after ten years of doing everything myself, that letting go, and sharing ideas, production, and management actually compounds my creative ability.

If I could request one thing from the world, it would be that businesses, clients, and people alike stop asking for transformation without the willingness to change. Ever notice how people ask for “transformation” but are unwilling to change anything? People talk a lot but don’t do a lot, and I believe that transformation and change require action.
.
How can you transform anything without an anticipation or willingness to make changes to business as usual? I’m asking these questions as if I don’t know the answer, but we know for a fact that apprehension lies primarily in one thing: change is difficult. To engineer transformation, you have to be willing to change what you are currently doing in a fundamentally different way. .
.
So enough talking, and take actionable steps that unlock transformation in the workplace and in life alike. .

I’m a big believe how you start your day sets the tone for everything to follow. That’s why I set the intention to exceed my first goal of the day. And when you think about it’s actually quite simple. The first goal we all make to ourselves everyday is to wake up at a certain time. Lets say your goal is to wake up at 7am, set your alarm to 6:45am. This is about more than just “waking up.” This is all about starting on the right foot with the mindset that you’ll accomplish and exceed all your goals for day.

Oh, what a difference a week can make! Last week I was sitting on the beaches in Tulum  Mexico overlooking bright blue skies in 90 degree weather. Today, I’m back in Chicago bundled up from the below freezing temperatures in complete astonishment how in almost an instant how things can change.  Have you ever thought about how much can change in just one year? It’s truly amazing to me, when I stop and think about it. In one sense, it’s kind of awesome, don’t you think? It makes me consider how the possibilities are endless, the opportunities are unfolding right in front of me, the world is at my fingertips and all the things I dream about are all still possible. It’s not too late. It’s never too late. The big life changes don’t happen overnight: Give yourself some time. Put in the necessary effort. Keep at it. You’ll be surprised with what can happen in a year.

Hustling is an art form. Hustling means doing whatever it takes to be successful. Every day, you have the choice to wake up and be damn good at what you do, and you also have the choice to make it by on the bare minimum. In my experience, the best indicator of a successful leader is the ability to discern what needs to be done when everyone else isn’t working; mornings, evening, and even weekends. Hustlers don’t wait for success to come to them; they go out and get it for themselves.

For all my badass friends this is a book top of my recommendation list for you. “You Are a Badass - How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life.”Just recently gave this book to my very own badass girlfriend to start her New Year ready to unleash her greatness. .
.
I am a self-confessed self-help book hoarder. I feel like I just can’t get enough of them. I’m always looking for ways to improve myself, my ways of thinking, and the way I go about my day. I always want to be better, stronger, happier, and more successful. I feel like this book is the ultimate of self-help books. The book is basically a tool to become aware of your own limiting beliefs and fix whatever’s blocking you from “living the kind of life you’d love to live”. Here’s a taste of the author’s (Jen Sincero) witty wisdom;
.
“You are responsible for what you say and do. You are not responsible for whether or not people freak out about it.”
.
“So often, we pretend we’ve made a decision, when what we’ve really done is signed up to try until it gets too uncomfortable.”
.
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm” .
“Your life is your party. You get to choose how you invite people and experiences and things into it”
.
"The only failure is quitting. Everything else is just gathering information”
.
“The people you surround yourself with are excellent mirrors for who you are and how much, or how little, you love yourself"
.

Recently published an article on @incmagazine about the brutal truth for young aspiring entrepreneurs calling themselves CEOs. Honestly. I can't tell you how many times I've met someone for the first time, and got so distracted by their use of the title CEO, that I couldn't focus on what they said. I feel bad for them, because when they walk into a room filled with actual CEOs, their misuse of the title, and lack of understanding of business fundamentals is the first thing they notice.
.
I've spoken to people about this before, and the ones who are offended that I address this problem are the ones who are doing it! I’m sure the article is going strike a nerve with those who agree or disagree.

If New Year’s is your moment for resolutions—use it for reflection and reinvention.  It’s about the journey. That’s the point. If you choose to find the best and beauty in everything, you’ll enjoy the journey. The choice is yours. How do you choose to live out this life? Ready to reinvent? Big or Small? Change is the adventure.
.
Whether we want to or need to, little changes lead to big reinventions. which are incredible journeys. Map your journey out, just like you would if you we’re going on a vacation to somewhere new and interesting. Whatever your passion, wherever this next adventure takes you, prepare yourself with a roadmap to get there—this is not work—this is your journey, so enjoy every step of it and own it with a sense of excitement. When it comes to Reinvention … trust yourself!

Relax to Recharge. Disconnect to Reconnect. Taking time off to sit on the beach 🏝 eat some tacos 🌮 and do absoutle nothing. It’s the best prescription for physically, mentally and emotionally recharge... not to mention allows us to regain perspective, and most importantly boosts our creativity. Looking forward to 2018 recharged and ready to dominate!
