Reflections & Projections

Many of you know I celebrated my birthday last Saturday. I turned 30.

Turning 30 really caused me to reflect on the last decade and what I have been able to accomplish and contribute and to set new goals for the decade ahead.

So this post is a bit personal, but my purpose is two fold:
1. I want to thank you for being part of my life in the last 10 years.
2. I want to share my goals with you so that you will hold me accountable.

I want to start by saying that I feel like 30 is just the beginning. I am excited about the next ten years and the people I am going to be able to learn from, grow with and help with my message.

The last ten years have been amazing. I want to thank you for whatever part in that you played. This has been a crazy, exciting, and productive decade.

Most importantly, in the last ten years Sarah and i have been able to start a family and have been blessed with 3 amazing kids. If you know me well, you know that they are my world. A mentor of mine once said, “No success in life will compensate for failure in the home.” and I try and keep that in mind every day.

My brother Scott and I have been able to build an incredible business in my twenties that has grown to over $20 Million in revenue. I have learned so much in the process and continue to learn everyday. It has been challenging, at times exhausting, but incredibly rewarding as well.

In the last ten years I really discovered my passion for speaking and teaching. I published my first book – The Power of Influence as well as several audio and video programs. I have been able to speak around the world (10 countries so far) and in 25 states in the US. I have had a chance to speak to Fortune 500 companies as well as associations and organizations from many industries.

The thing that I can say at this point is that I love my life. I love what I am doing everyday. I love who I spend my time with. I love the difference I get to make, and i love what is ahead of me!

So here are a few things to look for in my 30s. (and I want you to hold me to them!)

-I am going to continue to write books, but I am going to do it in a bigger way. I plan on having 2 New York Times Bestselling Books in the next ten years. (hold me to it and help me do it)

-Scott and I are going to continue to grow our business – and plan on doubling it in size.

-And I plan on speaking in the other 25 states as well as many more countries. I want to share my message with more than 1 million people in live audiences and millions of people through media and the internet.

-On the home front – we are planning on expanding our family of five (atleast by one more)

I want to thank you for being part of my list and I hope that the articles, interviews and videos I send out are helpful and serve you.

Here is to another successful 10 years!
