I know you’re grown but…
what_do_i_want_to_be_when_i_grow_up_17fee37e0a347   Dreams, Musiq Soulchild said it best, Don't ever let someone tell you to grow up and give up on your dreams! Earlier this week the world celebrated the birthday of The Ultimate Dreamer-none other than the Late Great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who had a dream that was so huge that many believed would never come to pass. But modern day evidence has proved otherwise. And over the course of the two days leading into MLK weekend and the day after I had the awesome opportunity to work...

The World’s Greatest
worlds-greatest-tv-show-logo-542x325 Ever wondered what the world's most powerful emotion is? Some would say love, while others may say anger, but I truly believe it's simply- GRATITUDE! And this emotion hit me like a ton of bricks over the last couple of weeks, so I just had to share. As many of you know I have more than a few irons in the fire (to say the least) and I am pushing myself to the limit in so many capacities simultaneously. And to be 100% honest it’s not always easy-...

Giants, they Fall… E aí Brazil
FIFA So, as the eyes of the world are turned to a proud South American Nation - we got a huge shock this week in the 2014 World Cup Semi-Final Match. The favored Top Dog, Host City Team and Soccer (Football) Giant- Brazil experienced one of the worst losses they've ever had; and an entire nation along with the rest of us were indeed stunned. However, when any major giant (like Brazil) falls there are generally some fundamental reasons why.  And I am willing to wager that this loss...

The moment when I stopped being afraid…
FEAR So, Monday in typical fashion I scrolled through my social media news fields and on my linked-in wall I noticed an article that drew me in like a moth to the flame (LOL- I’m trying not to be too dramatic- but it grabbed me!) The post was titled: The Most Stirring Speech Ever By An MBA so I clicked on the link, and after listening to the 17 minute oration I was indeed in agreement as it touched me in such a profound way. New Harvard Business School Grad Casey Gerald spoke...

Maya, Oprah and Me
Maya Well it's been about a week since the passing of one of the most "Phenomenal Women" that has ever blessed this planet- the Late Great Dr. Maya Angelou. I like many of you were saddened by the news but still grateful for the legacy that she left behind. I'll be honest I've watched an undisclosed amount of OWN TV this weekend with several interviews, snip-its and celebrations featuring Maya Angelou and I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Oprah had the awesome pleasure and privilege being mentored by Maya...

Being an Overcomer!
Sprung     I get asked this a lot, "How do you do it? How do you overcome obstacles?" Well I'm so glad you asked but first let's define what an obstacle is. I view an obstacle as anything that prohibits you from moving forward, anything that keeps you from achieving a goal, fulfilling a dream or ultimately getting what you want. And obstacles typically take different forms, here are the three major forms: 1. External Obstacles--These are obstacles outside of your control such as the economy, natural disasters (hurricanes, tornados, tsunamis,...

Identify & Execute Your Passion
EYP FINAL I always start my speeches and interviews stating two important questions: #1 No one hears you until they know you and  #2- No one cares what you know until they understand how much you care.  So, to answer the second question my die-hard Chris Cooper Troopers know that I love the world and everyone in it, and I'm committed to serving them at the highest level possible ALWAYS.  And in response to the first question, I am simply an example of a young-man with the ability...

It’s Time to Connect the Dots…
networking It happens this time of year- the weather begins to change and more and more Career, Networking and Social Events are about to happen and a question I get over and over from my clients, friends, and even strangers is: “How can I become a Better Networker? And better yet if I am an introvert how can I possibly survive this networking game! “ So after completing a Power Networking session at Northwestern University for their Business Students last night, I thought it would be a good idea to...
