Just try! You have zero chance of winning if you don’t even TRY. Wayne Gretzky said it best, “You miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take.” Remind yourself that NOTHING is impossible. Go for it and take a shot!

It’s true, we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But here’s a secret… People do!
Look the part. If you want people to take you seriously, then a good place to start is by taking yourself seriously.
Make sure your outer world is an accurate reflection of your inner world.
You won’t fly with eagles when you’re dressed like a turkey!

YES! Let’s check Silicon Valley and Googleplex off my list!
Totally inspired. Earlier this month on my Instagram, I finally visited one of the largest and most inventive tech companies on Earth. Always wanted to go. Since I was in San Jose on a marketing convention I took time to head to the search engine giant’s complex in Mountain View, California.
Building access to the public was extremely limited, but that doesn’t stop you from feeling the teamwork and positive energy on site from everyone there.
Just shows what an idea, some hard work, and big balls can do.
Its sad that many of us are skeptical. So many people coast through life making excuses our blaming others for their unhappiness or lack of success. It saddens me that mainstream media has made us afraid of change. And I see far too many people that settle…
…Because they aren’t willing, or too afraid, to learn skills that can better provide for their family, community, and financial future.
Whether you like it or not, technology is evolving.
The select few who make a difference in the lives of many SEIZE OPPORTUNITIES when they come their way, and they TAKE A RISK. The few who take time to learn how to capitalize on the evolution, and revolution- are #winning in the marketplace and changing lives!
Winning business leaders agree: Living in the 21st century is an exciting time. Anyone with a laptop, internet access, some hustle and an ounce of grit can enrich their future.
Google started with two young punks at Stanford. And now, their company LITERALLY affects almost everyone on the planet. Ever heard of this Facebook thingy? Similar story.
Silicon Valley is filled with passionate stories of startups, roadblocks, failures, obstacles… which OVER TIME lead the winners to success and victory. You should know there are NO overnight success stories. I was thrilled to feel the energy of the entrepreneurial culture down there.
You should definitely plan a trip.

Nobody ever became wealthy or financially free working a 9-5 for somebody else. It’s important to add, it’s NOT always about the money: it’s about the TIME you can add to your life. Time freedom to finally enjoy doing what you wanna do with whoever you want, whenever you want.
Good news! There are vehicles to help you get there. In fact, it’s estimated there will be 20 million millionaires by 2020 through technology, communications and distribution. My plan is already in motion to be in that mix… But is yours?
Is what you’re doing right now, TODAY, putting you in the position to have more equity and time freedom? And will your current job give you and your family the financial freedom you want and deserve five years from now?
If you answer NO to the question above, here’s a bold prediction:
If answered NO, then do you relate to any of the following statements?
If you relate to just one of these, INBOX me and share your thoughts. I know people who’ll truly help you figure it out. I’ll put you in touch so you can find out how you can put YOUR plan in motion, how you can take charge, starting TONIGHT. It all starts with YOU sending a message, you’re the only one who can do it.
Dream big. What have you got to lose?

I’ve been preaching this for YEARS, literally:
If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, SAY YES, then learn how to do it later!
Sometimes in life, you gotta be brave. You gotta take a chance. Sometimes in order to be successful, you need to take a leap, jump off that cliff, and learn to build your wings on the way down.
Maybe now that it’s in a fancy picture, people will pay attention? 😉
