What’s New

Quote to Contemplate

“Many of life’s failures are people who had not realized how close they were to success when they gave up.”

Thomas Edison

How close are you?

What’s NewI am getting so much done this summer. How about you?

I’m doing a ton of interviews about Women’s Business Empowerment Summit, my book, “Breakthrough to Success” and how to turn your passion into cash-my favorite topic.

I hope you’re listening to the free training calls for WBES because our faculty members are delivering some amazing content! You haven’t missed anything because the calls are all available on replay.

When you go to register for the calls, on the next page you can grab your seat for the summit in August. Not only do we have a great hotel rate of $99, but there are hot deals on airfares all over the place.

In fact, for those who are smart enough to not buy into the media hype of doom & gloom, you can get some of the best travel bargains I’ve seen in years!

If I wasn’t in the middle of preparing for the summit, I think I’d be spending the entire summer traveling. I booked my airfare for a trip to San Diego in a couple weeks to hang out with Mike Koenigs and Frank Kern and got a better deal than I did in March & April.

This week I’ve written the article I promised you last week on Tiger Woods. I find inspiration in how other people live their lives so whether it’s last week’s article on Tim Russert (which you can access on my blog) or this week’s article on Tiger, let me know if you enjoy these type of articles.

Remember to join the conversation on my blog where you’ll also find each week’s ezine posted for your comments.

Tim Russert, Tiger Woods and the Red Cross

Like I said last week, I’m still in Scottsdale and it’s way past hot! We’ve had a heat advisory for the last week, but that’s nothing compared to what some of you are dealing with in the middle of the country with all the flooding. My heart goes out to all of you dealing with that.

This is also a good time to remember that charitable organizations need your donations now. I heard that the Red Cross is taking loans out to be able to keep doing their work. That’s a real shame, because even though one segment of the population is cutting back because of the economy there are still more than enough people with money who can donate.

Last week I also mentioned how we are more interested in people when we feel a connection with them. Well, that was certainly borne out by 2 things this past week; the sad passing of Tim Russert and the drama at Torrey Pines created by Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate.

I wrote about Tiger in my book, “Breakthrough to Success” available on Amazon.com, but this is a whole new story on many levels that I’ll tell you about next week.

I decided to do this week’s article on Tim Russert and what we can learn from the way he lived his life and his passion.

On another note, every Tuesday and Thursday through the 29th of July I’m hosting 1 hour training calls.

Debbie Bermont was absolutely fabulous Tuesday night and if you weren’t on the call live and didn’t do the bullseye exercise, make sure you listen to the replay and do it now.

I just got finished recording the interview with J.T. Foxx which was canceled due to technical difficulties of J.T. not being able to get on the line last week. We now have over 1250 people registered for these calls!

It was worth the weight and J.T. has a fresh and wonderful perspective on how to promote yourself to millions. He is a breath of fresh air when it comes to being open and honest about how to get to the top.

And if you have any fear of promoting your fabulous self or your business, you’ll learn how to overcome that tomorrow on our interview with Dr. Jim & Dr. Judith.

These calls are all building on each other and I would encourage you to take the time and go back and listen to every single one. There are nuggets of gold in all of them.

There are some amazing deals on airfares out there now, so book your flight for the summit in August right away.

Don’t forget to reserve your seat before the $99 hotel room block is gone:

How To Master Happiness Like Tim Russert

This article is not an obituary, it’s not a rehash of the news or just a tribute to a truly wonderful example of a fully engaged man.

As you read this I want you to think about how you live your life. Not from the standpoint of dying suddenly, but from the point of wholeness and the level of joy and passion you live every day with. When you have every reason to believe you have all the time in the world and you still live your life to it’s fullest, that is a truly remarkable life.

I was as shocked as anyone to hear of Tim Russert’s passing and also surprised by how hard it hit me and then how hard it hit other women I know. People really felt a connection with him. I don’t even remember how many years I’ve been watching Meet the Press, but I do know it’s been a very long time. Even when I’m traveling I try to see it before I go down to the meeting room or go out for the day when I’m on vacation.

One of the first things I thought of was how much he loved the Buffalo Bills, probably because every time he said “Go Bills” at the end of his broadcast during football season, I would silently say the same thing about my team, the Packers. I shared his passion for football so it made me feel more connected to him.

He was serious about his commitment to make a difference in his profession and he had that same commitment to everything in his life he cared about. I haven’t often seen an example of someone who has such a high level of passion and commitment to every area of their life.

Tim’s father and his son were well known people to regular viewers of his show, so much so that with all the coverage I’ve seen, every time his son is mentioned he is called ‘Tim’s beloved son Luke’.

He wrote 2 books that are best sellers, the first about his relationship with his dad, “Big Russ and Me”, which was followed by “Wisdom of Our Fathers” based on the 1000’s of letters he received from people who wanted to pay tribute to their fathers. (There’s a hint for you information marketers)

Enthusiasm is a great word to connect with Tim. He had a zest for life. He was passionate about his faith, his work, his family, his hometown of Buffalo, his sports teams and Bruce Springsteen.

He lived and loved fully and openly and all those he loved clearly knew it. I’ve never seen so many stoic journalists emotional on camera, because they cared so deeply about this man. He was a cheerleader to everyone who worked for and with him over the years and their families, not just his own family.

He was fiercely loyal to his friends, a quality I admire very much. He was close personal friends with Republicans, Democrats and his closest competitors.

He lived his life to the fullest, passionately and with purpose, never losing touch with his blue collar upbringing; and more than just remembering where he came from, he embraced and supported Buffalo-and Buffalo loved him back.

For a man with so many professional accomplishments, who he was as a man has over-shadowed the talk of who he was as a journalist. I think that’s something we could all aspire to.

He told his son he loved him every day. He loved hanging out with his son & his friends. He never missed an event in his son’s life.

His family seems to be more at peace than I’ve seen with other tragic deaths. While giving his eulogy, his son smiled proudly while talking about his father. I wonder if that comes from a sense of not having things unsaid or undone, knowing that you lived your life and shared your feelings every day?

If there was ever a case of someone who was able to say, “If I died today, I’d die a happy man”, it would be Tim Russert.

In Tim’s words, “Let us all go get ’em.”

Go Bills!
