15 Things You Should Know …

My new book, 15 Things You Should Know: Wisdom for Life’s Journey is all about life, or more appropriately, it is a reflection of life’s journey.

As you will discover, the book is loaded with great quotes, fun facts, tips, life lessons, and relevant content for the ages. They’re all designed to make you pause, laugh, think, question, and thoughtfully consider where you are today in your journey and the opportunities and challenges that are ahead. You’ll also find a few I-had-no-idea and what-the-heck moments, as well as lots of random thoughts thrown in for good measure, just to hold your attention and keep things interesting.

Each chapter is a collection of my own home remedies, suggested actions, and answers to things you need to know that apply in business and to all other areas of life as well—a compilation derived from my personal life experiences, more than 175 articles I have written over the years, and the research conducted on the selected chapter topics. From the “The Journey” to “The End?,” 15 Things You Should Know: Wisdom for Life’s Journey will educate, encourage, challenge, and inspire you to continue to change, grow, and accomplish great things throughout your lifetime and, most importantly, to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

John’s Story

“We help clients get the results to move beyond their vision.”

This statement represents so much more than just another quote or tagline on my brochure. It is the vision statement for my coaching practice, and a reflection of my life’s journey. A journey that has moved me from humble beginnings to successes in areas I never dreamed were possible.

Moreover, my journey has enabled me to work with hundreds of entrepreneurs, small business owners and business leaders to help them achieve their goals in creative and expansive ways. But the journey has not been easy. In fact, as a child I was told by the people I looked to for guidance, encouragement and support that I was lazy and would never amount to anything.

We didn’t have a lot of material things when I was growing up, but my parents did their best to provide for our extended family. Both my parents were from broken homes and suffered through life during the Great Depression, World War II, and endured numerous hardships and disappointments. Their lives were oppressive, extremely hard and as a consequence, they had their dreams managed out of them long before I came along.

Unlike my parents I was a BIG DREAMER and knew from an early age that I wanted a different, better life than they had. However, during those formative years I was a classic under-achiever, painfully shy, introverted and lacking in self-confidence. Why? Because I bought into what others said about me. But these self-imposed limitations did not deter me from pursuing my hopes and dreams for a better life.

“The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.” – Walter Bagehot

Watching my parent’s struggles taught me the value of hard work at an early age. So, in order to pursue one of my big dreams — a college education, I got my first “real job” in high school to pay for it. I was the first person in my family to attend and graduate from college, and I did it without financial aid or support from my parents. A few years later, I completed my MBA degree with honors while working full-time.

After college my life really began to change for the better with the help of my first mentor and through the love and support of my wife, Laura. I learned so much from both of them. And I will be eternally grateful for the numerous ways they, and others, have changed my life and helped me become the person I was meant to be – personally, professionally and spiritually.

I lost the love of my life to metastatic breast cancer in March 2016. However, Laura will always be a  guiding light in my life that propels me forward. Laura’s untimely death has taught me to not take anything for granted, and to live in the moment because nothing is guaranteed.

Besides her unconditional love and a wonderful loving family, Laura also gave me another extraordinary gift. It was through her example I learned the true meaning of “paying it forward” and serving others. Seeing how she cared for others, putting their needs above her own, touched me so much that it became my ‘WHY’ when I launched my coaching practice in 2009.

Today, I work with a diverse group of entrepreneurs, small business owners and business leaders, from start-up to exit planning, to help them to dramatically improve the growth, profitability and performance of their businesses. It is my passion to help others achieve more than they ever dreamed possible!

What are the roadblocks that are preventing you from achieving your goals and realizing your dreams today?

Let’s work together to break through those barriers and help you “get the results to move beyond your vision”!!!

Merry Christmas Everyone! … A Savior Is Born!!!

The Shepherds and the Angels; Luke 2:8-18

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. Just then an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid! For behold, I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is the Messiah, the Lord! This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly there appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!”

… When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”

… So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph and the baby, who was lying in the manger. After they had seen the Child, they spread the message they had received about Him. And all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very, Merry Christmas!

Play Above the Rim …

Don’t lower your expectations … lower the rim!

Yes, there is a story behind the message. I grew up in a basketball crazy area of Kansas City, Kansas and attended Wyandotte High School. During the glory days Wyandotte was State Champions in basketball ten out of fourteen years. And I had the real pleasure of playing on the school grounds with many outstanding players including Lucius Allen and Pierre Russell, who went on to have great college and professional basketball careers.

Although I didn’t play in high school, I absolutely loved the sport and always dreamed of growing up to be 6’2” or taller so I could dunk a basketball. Well, I didn’t quite get there. I’m barely 5’8” in shoes, on a good day, with a mediocre vertical leap no less. However, I have dunked a basketball roughly 100-150 times in my lifetime.

How was I able to overcome these physical limitations and achieve my goal of dunking a basketball? Continue reading…

8 Ways to Rise Above the Noise

I don’t know about you, but I have grown weary and resentful of all the negative news I read and hear these days. The steady drone of articles about the Clinton’s, President Trump and his campaign advisers, the Russian dossier, Uranium One scandal, the NFL player protests, and so forth. It’s exhausting!

What’s the solution? We can turn-off the TV, cancel our subscription to the newspaper, or our social media accounts, boycott the NFL, etc. However, being an isolationist is not a solution, its creative avoidance. The very real challenges we must overcome to ‘Make America Great Again’ are still present and unabated.

How can we rise above the noise and turn our attention to solving real-world problems? Continue reading…
