50 Qualities of a Real Man – A Man’s Life Vow


Below are some thoughts on a man’s life vow, that is, the things to which every man should aspire.  We are all works in progress.  Success is not a measure of where you are on any of these items, but rather how you progress on them.

If our contemporary culture seems hostile to the traditional role of men, it is not because those traditions are not of value anymore, but rather because men have not stepped up to fulfill their roles and responsibilities. Thus stepping down, a vacuum has been created.

The question remains “Who will step up to fill this void?”

A Man’s Life Vow: Continue reading

It’s time to take control of your life!

People often struggle in one of two areas, relationships or career.  Which is it for you? Both?

Read on because help is a click or two away!

$125 value!  Crazy, I know! This is too important to me – that you regain hope.



Career Change? Yes Please!

You are frustrated with your career and are seeking a change or need to get to the next level professionally. Maybe you are just burned out! It takes focus and a good “sounding board” to help you take the next big step, whether that is striking out on your own, changing careers, or putting a plan together to advance professionally. Take the opportunity I am offering you in the free consult to share your vision. You will become energized after we talk and have a clearer idea as to what your next steps look like.

You Love Your Spouse, But You Don’t Really Talk?

You know the deal, yes, you talk, but do you REALLY talk?  You cover the logistics; who drives who to ballet or basketball, who picks up from scouts or school.  This goes on for weeks, months, years, and yes, even decades. One day it hits you, you wonder why you are frustrated and can’t talk about things that really matter, things from the heart.  You no longer share your dreams with each other.  You fall victim to the “I am too tired, maybe tomorrow” way of living, only tomorrow never really comes, does it?  Your relationship with your spouse is the most important relationship you will have on this earth.  If your relationship isn’t strong, you are putting your family in jeopardy.  Is that what you really want?  How ironic, by over serving your children you and your spouse have left each other in the dust.  Or worse, by becoming hyper-involved in activities outside of your marriage you, in effect, potentially abandon your spouse all the while claiming you are serving the greater good.  Look, click through the button below and setup a quick chat with me so we can figure out what’s not working – then we will put a plan together.  I will also share my top 3 strategies you can enact today to begin rebuilding a strong marriage.

No Mission for Your Life

Or perhaps your situation is such that you don’t know where to turn next in life. Maybe you are burned out at work and just need a complete life reboot. This may be especially true if you have reached midlife or have been in the workforce for a decade or more. The things you were doing a decade or two ago don’t hold the same meaning for you now. Your motivation and interest in your current work and activities may be waning. You aren’t sure why, but something just isn’t right. This is a great time to click through that button below and setup an appointment with me.  Don’t sit in that chair and mope any longer, take action and do the right thing.  Help those in your life by helping yourself. Like they say, you need to put the oxygen mask on yourself first if you are going to be helpful to those you love.

What we will do in our free coaching consult

What will happen in our coaching consult is that I will listen attentively to you, giving you the badly needed opportunity to get your struggles off your chest.  This is necessary for you to move forward, especially if something is blocking your way to happiness and satisfaction in your career, business, or relationships.

Once your burdens have been aired, I am certain you will feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders.  We can then talk about a go forward strategy for you so you have an actionable plan to keep the positive momentum going!

Click the button below to setup your appointment!  This is valued at $125.  My gift to you.  So get to it and sign up now before the offer goes away!

I am looking forward to connecting with you!

Be a Simple Kind of Man

As I am typing this I am streaming Lynyrd Skynyrd’s epic hit “Simple Man.” The one line that hits me between the eyes every time is:

“And be a simple kind of man. Be something you love and understand.”

Not that this song is my personal anthem, but in some ways it comes close. It makes a seemingly complex world for a man, a great deal simpler by advising men to become something they can love and understand. Continue reading

Sales Forecast Calls: How to Crush It Every Time!

conferencecallIs Everyone on the Conference Line?

“Oie!” You think to yourself, another sales forecast call tomorrow (I doubt that you would be thinking “oie,” but I needed to get this by the censors!)

Reaching for the closest bar napkin, you scramble to jot down your numbers.  They are dismal this quarter – borderline train wreck.  Yes, you knocked it out of the ballpark last quarter, but anyone who has been in sales knows that a quarter in sales time is like the people-year dog-year ratio thing.  Last quarter was like another lifetime.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe are all travelers

“My home is in Heaven. I am just traveling through this world.” -Billy Graham.
