This is the very first episode of The Shift Your Life Podcast. In this show I share who I am and why I created The Shift Your Life Podcast.

The Science of Getting Rich (JonRose Publishing, 2014)

Here is a great book I read this month by Wallace D. Wattles. The book was written in the early 1900s, however, it is still relevant today as it was then.

“The Science of Getting Rich” is not one of those books that hypes you about getting rich quick, but it gives you the tools and practices one needs to create the wealth you want in your life.

Mankind has not changed. We still have the same basic needs, desires, and dreams. This book should be read a lot. In fact, this book should be read every day. It is a fantastic book to add to your library.

Good Morning!

I hope your week has gotten off to a great start. It’s Wednesday already and as promised here is a quick video just to get your day started.

Author and speaker Jim Rohn says, “You are the sum total of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” When I think about what Jim is saying, I can’t help but ask the question, are the people I call my friends helping me get closer to my dreams or keeping me away from my dreams?

In this video, I challenge you to do some introspective work concerning the current relationships you have. It’s time for a friend check. True friendships should cause you to grow and not allow you to become comfortable in not realizing your dreams.

Who Are The Individuals Surrounding You?

Are You Willing To Pay The Price?

In the video below I share with you three principles that will keep you pressing your way towards realizing your goals and dreams in 2015. Run the race of life this year with expectancy to win, no matter what.

Are You Playing Full Out To Realize Your Dreams In 2015?

We are in the final week of January and the first month of 2015 will be a thing of the past. Time goes by so quickly. I was sitting her thinking to myself, “what have I not accomplished thus far, that I wanted to accomplish in the first month?” As I pondered the question, there […]
