LinkedIn profile (retired) Thanksgiving Day 2013

Google your name and be amazed at what is revealed. Never heard of 1st & 3rd ones.


November 28, 2013… retired this long-standing LinkedIn profile. Time for a change.

And added Published Author to the resume.

Bottom line, my goal is to see you reach yours.

An organization’s greatest internal goal must provide daily inspiring outcomes for front line employees.

Because front line employees don’t go to work thinking, “How can I increase shareholder value today?”

But what if your employees voluntarily extended discretionary effort to your customers without additional pay? And what if they enjoyed it and took pride in surprising and delighting your customers?

What if your leaders behaved the same way towards their direct reports?



I do what I do because souls need to be “seen” and hope needs to be “touched”.

And give speeches to change the world and never give the same speech twice.

Crazy busy, right?

Story of our lives.

Are you satisfied?

No seriously, Are you satisfied?

If you answered “Yes”, well, this probably means goodbye, if “No”, you may be onto something…

International professional speaker to a million people.

When I’m done, your audience will think so differently about common sense they’ll feel like their life (and your Company), moving forward, will never again be the same.

Sooner or later it becomes crystal clear. Life is not a dress rehearsal. So I’m here to remind you why today is not a good day to put your dreams on hold.

Mid Life Celebration is a catalyst for positive change and regret-free living and leading.

Energizing, inspiring, insightful, thought-provoking, and fun. The perfect speaker, really.

Modus operandi: If I tell your audience the answers they’ll never remember. If I help them figure it out themselves, they’ll never forget.

The unfair advantage is simply the engagement volume and variety over 14 years, and a million people.


Be well and remain amazed.

  1. Speaking of LinkedIn – ever wonder why you get emails from LinkedIn when people you know have created a profile? It’s because the trick the user after creating their account, they get an email with a link back to LinkedIn to validate their login – which is your email address. They are trusting that you are using the same password for your email that you use for LinkedIn, because if you read the fine print, what they are asking for is permission for them to log into your email to grab your contacts. Being security safe – I don’t use the same password for anything, that is how I found out.

  2. David, great tip. Safety is a non-negotiable.

    One of the ways we manage our HQ is to have mastered a password system that works well and is manageable. No easy task.

    Most important tasks aren’t easy.

    Appreciate you sharing because you aways have insight that I’ve never heard before.

  3. I use eWallet as it has a plugin for the browser and allows you to save other information such as those “secret” questions. One tip, never use answers that can be social engineered. Example: For your mother’s maiden name don’t use the real name, always use a fake name that you know. One thing to remember (that was shared with me by a security expert), consumer sites will make it as easy as possible for you to use their site so additional security steps like multi-factor authentication, complex passwords, password aging, etc may make it a deterrent for you to buy from them so you have to take your own steps and use different passwords, changing them often, make them complex and let an application manage those for you. Wanna test your password, see this link from Security Expert Steve Gibson:
