Thoughts from a Proud Veteran

Every year around (November) this time, I post something that commemorates Veterans' Day. I am a Veteran -- a member of an elite group of Americans. Veterans day is very special to me. A Nation that honors her Veterans, honors her heritage. This Veterans day please stop and reflect. Honor a Veteran by saying to (S)he: Thank you for your service.

3 Life Lessons from Military Leadership

Be-Know-Do--LeadershiptheArmyWay.jpgI served 20 years of Active-Duty Military. After leaving the service, I attempted to reintegrate in the civilian corporate world.

Wearing corporate gray, out with the old and in with the new.

Trouble is, the leadership lessons learned in the Army are invaluable tools.As true as this is, I didn't recognize this fact until...[stick around for the rest of the story]

Whois Afraid of North Korea

Obama_Kim_Jong_Un_Mirror.jpgWith all of the saber-rattling, it appears that the old battle of good v. evil, Cold War is rearing its ugly head...at least as far as North Korea is concerned. The NORTH is proclaiming not only as having nuclear capabilities, but is actively broadcasting its intent to employ said weaponry [WMD] toward South Korea and Japan.

On the other hand, the US has responded with a show of strength in the form of Naval battle groups, intelligence analysis, and media communication. As a consequence, the possibility of WAR is quite real. Diplomacy can be an effective tool, yet that path has been visited previously. This week's show picks apart the question: Whois Afraid of North Korea?

Celebrating the 2013 Obama Inauguration

Inauguration Day, Jan 21st 2013The American people have spoken; an African-American has been reelected to a second term as President of the United States. What a historic event! Besides the ruffles, flourishes, and regalia, the President (as well as the Nation) faces some difficult challenges.

[Namely] Immigration, the domestic economy, fiscal deficit reduction, and GUN Safety. January 20th is also the celebration date of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King. So lets join in with Barack Obama, Joseph Biden, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. [Dr.] Biden along with the American people to celebrate this momentous occasion at the National Mall of Washington, D.C.

2012 was the Year of Guns Outta Control

The old adage of Guns don't kill people, People kill people...just doesn't cut it anymore. Our children were murdered within the most sacred of all public arenas --our schools. People are fed up; the President is Mad! We must have a National Discussion about Gun safety; strong and corrective action is needed now!

While preserving our 2nd Amendment rights, it is possible to support and defend, yet also preserving the life, liberty, and prosperity of all citizens. The year 2012 brought over 90,000 shootings. Most infamous were the Colorado movie theater shooting, the Trayvon Martin shooting, and of course...SANDY HOOK! My message is this: LET'S HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT GUNS!

The Fiscal Cliff and Your Money Blueprint

Since the close of the 2012 presidential election, the media has beseiged us with doom and gloom surrounding the fiscal (FC) cliff [crisis?]. If you recall, I recorded an episode entitled, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? My thoughts and feelings about FC are heavily influenced by my learning experiences at the Millionaire Mind Intensive [2008 and 2010]. While the Executive and Legislative branches "duke-it-out" to a stalemate, potentially millions of Americans may see higher taxes as well as a potential loss of unemployment benefits.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind

The answer lies within the depths of our inner self. Preparing our finances to withstand economic hardships while exploring legitimate avenues to increase our personal wealth and prosperity. The next question is: Why is it that Most People Never Achieve Financial Freedom? Take a moment and answer these questions silently in your mind: Wouldn't you like to have a lot more money in your life? Wouldn't you like to have a lot more happiness in your life? Wouldn't you like to stop worrying about getting laid off, being able to pay your mortgage, whether you'll be able to afford college, or whether you'll ever be free to retire ... and get back to enjoying a worry-free life?

I don't have a stock answer, solution, or "magic blue pill" to solve your personal financial dilemma. Yet I suggest that The ROOT cause of our financial success, mediocrity, or failure - the very blueprint that determines our financial success --practically from birth-- goes back to our Money Programming. Our Thinking...our thoughts.

My personal path to wealth and prosperity is an ongoing and never-ending journey. Motivational speaker, Larry Wingert, tells his audience that "Success is your own damn fault!" Oh, but what about the Fiscal Cliff? There are two things that I want to say: 1) I wish I was in the Top 2% to be affected by the Obama tax increase; 2) I'm gonna go pull out my iPod, plugin my earbuds, and listen to the Beatles -- Let it Be...

Proud 2Ba Military Veteran

I Am a Military Veteran. The pride that I feel has not always been as strong as it is now. Why? Maybe it's because I'm older, smarter, wiser, and more mature. Or perhaps it's because the United States may (soon) begin an exit strategy from her involvement in the most enduring and longest period of continuous warfare within her +200 year history. As a Veteran, I can safely say that war has no victors...only victims. Today, I salute my fellow Military Veterans and say:  Thank You for Your Service!

What I Plan to do for Veterans Day 2012

I have a full agenda this year to commemorate the 2012 Veterans Day weekend. First a Veterans ceremony with an Army General speaker. Next, a Veterans day parade; probably fix up some ribs on the barbie and drink a few ice teas. As one of my favorite holidays, I've learned that a grateful nation honors itself by honoring her Vets. In past years, I enjoyed free chicken wings -- gratis for Veterans -- compliments of Hooters restaurant. This year, no Hooter wings. The point is, this is a very important holiday that is noteworthy of celebration. BTW, are you as an American, enjoying your freedom? Then, 'Thank a Vet!'
