Who Do You Listen To?


If I told you, I could show you how to have everything that you’ve ever dreamed of or wanted, would you listen?  Probably not, unless you knew me or knew my history. So what if you knew I had made billions of dollars by creating a brand that had changed the world?  Like Steve Jobs of Apple or Bill Gates of Microsoft, I bet you’d listen to me then.

Influence is like that; people tend to listen to others if they know that what they’re reading, hearing or learning is from someone that has either done what they want to do or know that the source of information is from someone they trust.  So how do you build this trust?

What if I told you that in the past eight years, I co-founded one company with my father, manufactured and sold over ten thousand items for this company and recently founded my own company to sell a product I invented, would you listen to me now?  If so, I have a few items to share with you.

I have been on a journey since my father called me in 2011 asking me if I wanted to help find a company to sell a product he invented.  Since then, I have had an unquenchable thirst for learning all I can to be successful and to live out my purpose. I can tell you that I now know what I am doing, and I am striving every day to achieve what I have been put on this planet to do.  I am a creator, a businessman and I’m working even harder to share my knowledge with others, which is why you’re reading this right now.

So my question to you is, what do you want to do this year?  Do you have any goals for 2019? I can help you. If you have an idea for a business or a product idea, I can help you.  If you have or have had thoughts of a business idea, but thought, no, someone is already doing that, well let me tell you the world is an abundant place, and I am pretty sure your idea may be what the world needs.  I can help you create a plan or point you to the resources that will help you achieve your dreams. Remember, dreams are just dreams unless you write them down and create a plan for its achievement, then it’s a goal and goals are achievable.  If you need help, I can help you with that too.

Think I’m kidding?  I recently decided to act on a dream.  I created a non-profit organization which will help serve others who are like-minded and are looking for ways to better themselves.  It’s called the Summit Master Mind and the details for this group can be found at www.summitmastermind.org. We will be meeting once a month on a summit somewhere here in Southern California.  The first event is on 4/20/2019.
