Rules to live my life by

Look good, feel good

Food and money require stewardship and discipline

Smile while talking, smile while listening

Serving makes more money than selling

 Stop lecturing, the only way to teach others is to light up my own scoreboard

The ace on my team is my mentor

Eat, sleep and breathe the System

Cast Vision

Buy into my team’s dreams

Work, work, work!

Be a talent scout, not a judge

Ask others to pull their own weight

Think of people as their best version and expect them to live up to it


Love is the qualification for Mentorship

There is magic in Community

Mistakes are dress rehearsal for victory

Let your efforts rise above your excuses

Negative co-workers kill attitude, CDs give it life

Losing is not acceptable

Plan, Do, Check, Adjust



One big victory erases all past failures

“Most folks have heard at one time or another that a smile will give them a real boost. They’ve been told that a smile is excellent medicine for confidence deficiency. But lots of people still don’t really believe this because they’ve never tried smiling when they feel fear. Make this little test. Try to feel defeated and smile big at the same time. You can’t. A big smile gives you confidence. A big smile beats fear, rolls away worry, defeats despondency.” The Magic of Thinking BIG by David J. Schwartz, PhD.
