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...

The image even brought tears to some as we all believe that our beloved MJ was gone to soon. Well due to an insane mix-up with a flight I...

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...

Going for Gold
gg_going-for-gold_logo A Message of Olympic Proportions.... I bring you greetings as the Atlanta area is iced in and I cannot help but to think once again that Mother Nature is taking us back to the basics. And I am reminded to consider how fragile yet interconnected all of our lives are and that we all should be truly grateful for the many “basic” blessings that we enjoy yet often overlook daily. So as I glance at my iced covered driveway and at my deck that looks as if its...

All I do is Win, or do I?
all i do is win   What does Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, Harland Sanders, and Norman Vincent Peale have in common with you and me? Well of course we are all human beings, and we all have the same 24 hrs in a day, and 7 days in a week, yet we also have the same amount of raw potential to win! However the four greats I just mentioned tapped into that potential and transformed it into lasting power. As a lifestyle and procrastination expert I help professionals, entrepreneurs,...

Moving past the Resolution Hangover...

Well, we are exactly two weeks into a new year, and I've been speaking with so many friends, colleagues and clients and it seems that everyone is singing the same tune- I Broke my New Years Resolution ALREADY and I am disappointed in myself. My advice- Don't beat yourself up, although we are all wired for success we are consistently programmed for failure, and sadly, new years resolutions are NO DIFFERENT! The issue as previously stated is that we don’t have the healthy habits in place to keep our resolutions.  If we did, we wouldn't need...
