Is it really possible to live without fear?

Fear. We all experience it. It can be below the surface. And it can interfere with our lives in ways that we may not even be fully aware.

What if you could live without fear? What would you attempt? How much farther would you go in life?

We answer that question on this episode of Coach’s Corner!

My special guest is Kellan Fluckiger who is an executive, speaker, performer, and catalyst.

Kellan is dedicated to helping others tap their gifts and talents to allow them to effectively serve and grow in...

Take Charge! No More Mr. Nice Guy!

Time to take charge of your emotions!

Society has changed a lot over the last 3 years. Gone are the days when people were extra patient, kind, respectful, and even caring.

As these last 3 years have been rough on just about everybody, we are seeing the impact it has had, and it’s not always pretty.

So how do you keep your head up, stay hopeful, and dare I say even feel positive about life?

While it’s creatinly not easy to do, it can be done, if you’re willing to do a f...

A call to action

This is a call to action!

We are at a turning point right now. No matter which way you look, you see things that are not as you’d expect them to be.

Many of us have been silent. We’ve been watching it all unfold and we hope that things will turn back in the right direction soon.

But is that the right approach?

Is being silent really being part of the problem at this point?

It’s our complacency that is keeping this all going.


These people are NOT your enemy!

No, they are not your enemy!

We all want things to be calm out there. We all want a strong society. We want health. Happiness. And we want to be able to create a life that makes us proud and happy.

The question is, how do we get there when right now so much seems to be off the rails?

There is a path forward that we can take, but it will take some different thinking. What we have been doing has been taking us in the wrong direction.

Too many...

Use Your Power of Influence

Use your power of influence!

Selling. We all have to do it, but there is a much more effective way to get people to notice you, find out more about you, and ultimately buy from you!

My guest on this episode is Dr. Angela Mulrooney, an expert at using LinkedIn in a powerful way to attract the perfect buyers to you!

We have an amazing conversation on many facets of marketing and promotion and she shares her story on how she went from being a successful Dentist to creating 3 businesses to now just...

Hey, you got a business plan? Right?

If you don’t yet have a business plan for your business, you are at high risk of failure. Statistics show that businesses without a plan, fail at an astoundingly higher rate than businesses who have created and are following a business plan!

Today, my guest is Burke Franklin, a man with decades of experience helping businesses get funded and get sold to larger organizations. His experience runs deep and he’s now in a position where he can help you to get your plan done, and yes, even if you’re a solopreneur!

What if you...

You get to choose

You get to choose how you will handle the period of time in which we now find ourselves.

Looking at the state of the world, you would not be wrong to be feeling much less than optimistic about it all right now. And like you, I too can get bent out of shape and can lose my usual positive stance in life.

Speaking with a friend earlier today, he brought up what seems to be a very common question these days: what can I do?

There is something each and every one of...

Conversations Create Clients

Episode 160

Conversations create clients!

Social media. Some people love, it. Most hate it. Others are indifferent. I might fall into the indifferent category myself.

Yes, I’ve heard all the ways we can use social media to build a massive business. I’ve attended the seminars, watched the videos, read the books, and hired the coaches.

Through it all, it still never quite clicked for me. Sure, I’d sign up a client here and there, but nothing was consistent. And when you don’t have consistency, you have a hobby and not a real b...

Using Today’s Challenges to Grow

Challenges bring opportunity!

Everybody I speak with these days still talks about how their lives have changed since 2020. Seems the impact of all that has gone on since that time continues to weigh on so many of us.

I know it does for me, for many of my clients, and for family and friends too.

Heading into this summer, the 3rd summer in a row now where things are still not back to normal, how will you use this time to build a stronger version of yourself?

How can you use...

Get paid what you are really worth

They are watching how you react..

You never know.. It's true. You never know who is watching you. You never know who admires you. You never know who is learning from you. We are all teachers to those around us. And we are either teaching what NOT to do or what you should be doing! It's what you say, but it's even more about what you are and who you are that makes the biggest impact on others.

Tough Times and New Leaders

In Tough Times, Ignite Your Creativity

When so much around us is no longer "normal" you have some choices about how you choose to respond - Exercise your creativity! For many people, they don't feel like they have any options and they can become fearful and choose to respond in ways that are not all that helpful. It doesn't help that so much of the information we are exposed to all day long is less than positive and encouraging. As a coach, my job really is about helping people reframe situations so that they can react differently to what is happening in their lives. When they...

What will you say when they call?

It's a Fact.. or is it?

It's a fact! We seem to argue a lot these days over the facts. What's a fact? Whose facts are the real facts? Are you getting the facts from the news? Are your friends giving you the facts? Do you believe the facts when you hear them? What causes us to believe or not believe the facts are they presented? Let's talk about it on today's Coach's Corner!

Getting Ready to Launch into 2022

Looking back 2 years, we have seen a lot of things we never expected to see. We have been interrupted, stopped, and found ourselves doing things we would rather not have done.In the words of a good friend of mine, the last year has been "complicated." Maybe the understatement of the year!So what can we do right now as the year winds down and we get ready to launch into a brand new year?And what do I have in store for you on December 30th? Let's talk about it all in this edition of Coach's Corner!

The Power of New Perspectives

It's far too easy to get stuck in an echo-chamber these days, especially on social media! But is that helpful or hurtful? While it's sure a ton of fun not getting into arguments about this, that, and the other thing, there may be a bigger reason why it's not as helpful as you might expect. Let's take a look at this and much more including how you can be prepared for a much better year ahead!

Never be part of the “in” crowd

When you have a strong sense of who you are and are solid in what you believe, be that person! There is no need to ever stop being who you are just so you can fit in. Right now, our society is forcing this issue. They want us all to conform to their ideas and norms and give up on being the people we were meant to be. When you give up on being who you are just so you can fit in, that's when things really go off the rails in your life. I have never been a conformist...

Hey, you see my social media?

What happened to my social media? Boom! Just like that it all went away! Well that was fun! What lessons did you learn when you favorite web sites went dark and those that were still running were very slow? My phone blew up with text messages when it happened, as I'm sure yours may have as well. What would you do if the outages were to last more than a few hours? Would it impact your business? Would you lose touch with family and friends? Right now, we have to do what we can to have other methods of connecting...

Choose Your Battle

Be smart and choose your battle. You can't fight on multiple fronts all at once, but when you get focused on just one battle, you have a lot more power! There are right now many battles and many fronts. Some of them really matter to you, while others are not quite as important. What you need to do now, is to pick a battle, build a team, and then take action. When you do, we can make a major impact and change things that are simply wrong in our society for the better!

You Are The One Who Decides

You decide. When it comes to your health and any and all decisions about your health, there is only one person who gets to decide what's best. While some people are all too happy to defer their treatments to what their doctors say and that's fine. I'm not one of those people. I have learned to ask lots of questions. I have learned to do a ton of research. I simply will not make a decision until and unless I have as much information as humanly possible! If you want to live long and happy, it's in your best interest...
