  • Scrappy is attitude and strategy. Think creatively!
  • Scrappy people set big audacious, outrageous goals; then fight to make them realities.
  • Since you’re going through life anyway, you might as well go through it and live your dreams!
  • Get scrappy and enjoy your journey!

  • Ask yourself, “What do I want?” and get clear on what you want! Your brain responds best when you have clarity.
  • Ask yourself what it will take to achieve those dreams. What obstacles must you overcome?
  • Create daily “rich-uals,” which are daily habits that you will do to make your dreams come true.
  • Work daily on your three main “tools” to create wealth – your being (spirit), body and brain.
  • Instead of focusing on 100 things on your “to do” list, focus on three items every day.
  • Think about how you go from success to significance. Go from focusing only on self to learning how to focus on a bigger legacy.
  • Make a daily map of your wants and you can grow your gets!!!!

A Tribute to Muhammad Ali


When I was 10 years old, my family went to Philadelphia to visit my grandmother. On our second day there, my grandmother, Vivian, received a phone call that changed my life. Her friend, who worked at a television station, called to say she had some extra tickets to a television show, featuring Muhammad Ali!

My grandmother secured four tickets, and off we went to the television station to see The Champ! Not only did we have tickets, but front row seats that surrounded a boxing ring corner.

During that ring side interview, Muhammad Ali shared three key points.

  • First, in order to win in life, it is necessary to have a dream and imagination.He was asked how he revolutionized the boxing industry. Ali spoke of how he dreamed of becoming a great boxer; and then used his imagination to create a personality that people either loved or hated. Those who loved him came to see him win; those who hated him came to see him lose. And in the meantime, every seat was taken!At that moment, I realized I needed to start to dream and to use my imagination.
  • Secondly, in order to be a champion (a real champion) it takes courage. You must have courage to do the right thing; and courage to take a positive stand and then, stand on your convictions. He said courage was necessary to love people who might not love you; and courage to treat people fairly!
  • Finally, Ali said he shook up the world when he won the heavyweight championship title – against the odds. He then looked at all of us and said, “And you all can do the same! You can shake up the world when you go against the odds and do what God sent you here to do – and do it with excellence!”

Then, as he finished the interview he said, “Who wants to box the champ?” I jumped out on my seat and jumped in the ring with Muhammad Ali! That was truly a day that changed my life!

Today, I celebrate Muhammad Ali and thank him for pouring into a young 10-year-old boy and giving him a new mindset about winning and about what it really means to be a champion in life!

God Bless You, Muhammad Ali! You truly made a difference! Rest in Peace!

  • Talent is God-given, but ability takes work.
  • Everyone was born for a reason. And when you find that reason, you will maximize your success.
  • Sometimes due to the “clutter of the life” we may think we are mistakes. But God didn’t make any mistakes! We just have to clear the clutter!

From Prison To Big Profits

The Inspirational Story of Weldon Long


Weldon Long PhotoAt the age of 15, Weldon Long dropped out of high school and started making other poor decisions with his life. First, he got involved with drugs and alcohol, and then, he started small-time robbing and stealing.  At the age of 18, he was arrested for armed robbery and sent to prison.  Over the next 16 years, he spent 13 of those years behind bars!

At the start of his third stint in prison (which was a 7-year sentence) Weldon had a conversation with his father that changed his life. He told his dad that he had no reason to stay alive. He was uneducated, a deadbeat dad and a three-time loser that had been sent to prison three times.

Weldon’s father told him that he could change his life whenever he wanted to, if he would just believe in himself as much as his dad believed in him. A few weeks later, Weldon’s dad suddenly died.

On that day, Weldon Long made a commitment to change himself and become the man his father believed he could be. He went to school while in prison and earned a GED, then a BA Degree and then an MBA. In 2003, Long walked out of prison broke, without a place to call home and virtually alone.  Yet, he was determined to be the man his father believed he could be.

Within 60 months of leaving prison, Weldon Long had built an Inc 5000 company with over $20 million dollars in revenue! Today, he is a successful entrepreneur, author of a NY Times Best Selling book, one of America’s top new sales trainers and a happily married husband and father. He has homes in Colorado and Maui and travels the world sharing his message of hope.

How was all this possible? How does a “3-time loser with a 9th grade education” go from walking the yard in a high-security prison to walking the beaches of Maui – virtually overnight?

Weldon shares his secrets for success:

  • You can do it…but YOU must be the one to do it.
  • As long as you’re breathing, you can change your life.
  • To be successful, read what successful people have done and do what they do. Don’t just read the book; devour the book until it devours you – that is the old limited thinking version of yourself.
  • Don’t live looking through the mirror of your past…rather live thinking from your future – your imagination.
  • Success in life and business is not about the one big thing you do on New Year’s Day, but the little things you do each and every day.
  • Focus your thoughts and bring them under control. You must think, about what you will think about! When you focus your thoughts you will learn to think your way into wealth.
  • Set goals in the present tense saying, “I am,” rather than “I will be.”
  • Read your goals daily and read them with energy, until you start to believe that you can make them come alive in your mind.
  • Ask yourself, “What do I want?” Then ask, “What do I need to do to get it?”

11 Power Tips to Start and Grow a Business

I’m often asked, “How do you start a company without leaving your job to do it?” Since, I quit my job and jumped into speaking, I realized I needed to interview a person who had successfully followed a more traditional track.
I immediately thought of Al McCree!

Al McCree is a former Air Force officer who has started, built and sold numerous companies – some while still working a full time job! He started a business focused on military music, as a part time venture, and was able to build it into the number one record label for military music in the world!

He sold that company and started another selling motivational seminars online. He had success with that company as well.  One of those motivational personalities was a humorist named Jeannie Robertson.  Al introduced her to the worldwide web and they went viral!

As a result of her new online popularity, Al started a concert promotions business, where he promoted Jeannie Robertson in theaters around America.  It also became a hit!

Now Al McCree and Dr. Willie Jolley are coming together to do concert events across America. This concert event will be a unique One Man Show featuring Dr. Jolley. It’s a Broadway Style event with music, motivation, entertainment and inspiration. The first event premiers in Washington, DC on September 10th 2016. We expect this venture will do as his other ventures have done – become a hit!

In this interview Al McCree shared powerful principles to help you start a business, grow a business and position it to be able to be sold for a big profit:

  • Even while working a job, think of ways to create passive income.
  • Look for a niche that you can build into a brand.
  • Always look for new buyers who can purchase your product or service.
  • If you stop marketing when things are going well, it is just a matter of time before people will forget you exist.
  • Starting a business takes risk, so be willing to take on some calculated risks.
  • One way to start a business with minimal risks is to “nibble,” which is to try an idea on a small scale to see if it will work.
  • Not only can you nibble with a new venture but also nibble with your present business. Keep trying new things on a small scale then grow the nibble as you get more confident it will work.
  • Find mentors, who have done what you want to do, and learn from them.
  • Your business should be something you enjoy. If you’re doing it just for the money, you will never be paid enough!
  • Find strategic partners who have similar values and with whom who you can work. If they don’t work, move on.
  • There are 3 Parts Needed to Create a Strong Business
  1. Good product or service
  2. Good Marketing and Sales
  3. Good operations to keep the company going
