No that is not a trick question. It really happened and she really did. And of course there's a story. Quite a fascinating and moving story. But it came out of a sales and marketing strategy that I developed for men and women who were in the financial services business helping people with the financial planning insurance and investment, and perhaps planning for their estate and everyone's eventual passing. It was a story question and it was... What in your treasure chest that you will be passing on to those you love and care for after you are gone?... And one of the ultimate questions, how do...

It goes back to June 10, 1935 in Akron Ohio.  Two men hopelessly addicted to booze tried to figure out how they could get sober.  A famous preacher in New York City also got involved in their lives and help them figure out in many ways how to live the life that would not be destroyed. Right now many of you, and some of you very deeply, know what I'm talking about. Yes this is the birthday of AA, and for sure it saved the lives and continues to save the lives of millions of people. I have two stories that I would like to tell you about AA as part of our program plan to celebrate and...

It's June 6. 80 years ago today thousands of soldiers sailors and others stormed the beaches of Normandy in France to begin the invasion that ultimately would destroy the Nazi empire and bring it into the second world war in Europe after millions upon millions of people had died, suffered, and had their lives ruined.  I have walked through that bloody battlefield and so may I share some of my stories about that experience of being on the beach. I have a very personal story about a man in my family connection who was very much involved in all that happened through that horrible war. He...

But my friend that is what all of us are trying to do all the time in life and business today. We are trying to get people to listen. So if I have your attention, I believe I have some interesting ideas in terms of what Donald Trump should do if he gets what could be an extraordinary sentence.  There are people who are asking for him to go to jail for a long time.

Well did they do something that will have very strong negative things for them, or did they position themselves to win the election.  No matter how you feel about him or about the conviction Donald Trump is there. But the question is, what is there> it's obviously a big deal that the Democratic Party has engineered and it's obvious that that is the case no matter what your feelings.  The Democrats would never have done this to anybody else but Trump and they did it to him once they discovered he was going to run for office again.  So it is political. And anyone who claims...

She was the leader, the transformer, the one who helped break the bonds in the evils of slavery. She was often called The Moses because she let her people to the promised land of freedom. I was deeply moved when finally I saw the film about Harriet Tubman and just as I thought we were right in the midst of our conversation about all that might go into a transformation place, the right timing, and The right person. Let me recommend the film to show you a brief trailer and then perhaps some of the ways I was deeply touched in learning more about what we must be and perhaps what we must do to...

I have been doing radio broadcasting for well over 40 years and I spent many years teaching others how to do that and I still do that. I think I do it quite well, And there is a long story behind it but I often times tell them to stand up. You will be at your best as a radio performer when you do not sit in a comfortable chair, but when you stand up tall straight and with personal power and energy, tell your story and show your stuff and make it thoughtful memorable and helpful.   That's the start and there's even more but let's begin there as to why it's important that in so many...

It's a long time ago story that has stood the test of time. And for those who are dealing with our own time and place, space, and problems and pathologies, and difficulties and seeking away to a transformation, this might be helpful. Just maybe we can be encouraged by learning something from the story and the song that can help us change our life starting now and perhaps forever right now. Sing a song and pray for transformation in your own life and situation.

 Thanks for listening. Who knows for sure it's not important but it's a part of my story and I think it might be helpful to you because it could encourage you to always try and do new and different and unique things. Remember the two most powerful words in the English language are, we're different! I was a performance coach and still am... We seldom quit but eventually we just go away and let smarter and younger people take over.  But when I first began I found a very unusual way to help my clients.   I also discovered that since many of my clients were entrepreneurs they...

 I had never heard of it before. I've heard of CEOs and all of the other C guys and gals that hang around corporate places and think they are important and some of them are.  And I was even the inventor of the idea of a CHO.  Which by the way could be one of the more important positions in your organization. But I had never heard of a CDO and now I have it is rather interesting and I'm gonna tell you all about it because it means something. It might be something important for you to even think about in many ways. Yes heads off to the CDOs...; so let me tell you who they are. And...

 I think most of us take ourselves too seriously. And there's a difference between taking your work seriously and taking yourself too seriously.

That is particularly true in the work that I do. From time to time years ago a frightened young intern would come to me and confessed they had messed something up for a radio program and they were here to ask for forgiveness.

Usually that was no problem though I made it a point to try and ask them to think and do some remedial work to try and avoid that from happening again. I would then share with a smile  ... That they were not the first person to make that mistake in the industry and they won't be the last. And then sometimes I would add, and remember it's only a radio program.

I felt I had worked hard and put in a good solid 15 minutes of news, some views, a touch of entertainment and some wisdom insight and truth that might be helpful about making an impact in the world.  

But I also know that in this business like in almost every business, timing is vital and just as I was posting the program we got news of the terrible shooting in Nashville. And obviously that was and should dominate the news and hopefully no views of why it happened or how it happened, at least for a while.  

You see  in the midst of that I am not going to increase the amount of perhaps useless noise by putting my radio program right smack dab in the middle of the conversation.  And so I did not,but now I'd like to talk about how important it might be to learn how to makean impact for good in this obviously broken and very sad world,
