When I first set out into business on my own, I quickly learned that despite my infinite determination to reach my goals and create a better life, there were huge gaps between where I was and where I wanted to be.

Someone once told me if you want to be a Success, then study Successful people.

One of the best things I ever did for myself was join an
organization that brought highly acclaimed mentors and
motivational speakers to speak once a month. I would bring paper and pen to take notes and a camera in case I had the opportunity to actually meet the speakers, which I often did. Those pictures were images of infinite inspiration to me. I cannot begin to explain the boost it gave me to hang them at my desk and have them to look at every single day.

The notes I took became the blueprint for a better life.

Once a month I would attend these events, network with
entrepreneurs, sales professionals, and CEO's. There I met some amazing people, but more importantly, found so much more than I ever expected. I found the mentors who would help guide me at a rapid speed to the life I had envisioned for myself.

You see, I spent the first 25 years of my life living amongst drug dealers and gang bangers, surrounded by poverty and crime. The messages I saw everyday in that ghetto community were terrifying. I lost childhood friends to gang shootings and my mother was almost caught in gang crossfire right in front of our own house. No one should live that way.

I had to seek out new, positive, empowering messages and role models if I was ever going to make it out alive. I had to take complete responsibility for changing my life because no one was coming to my rescue.

It was up to me.

I needed to go out of my way to get around the kinds of people I wanted to be like. No one was going to come knocking on my door and volunteer to mentor me so I had to seek out my own mentors.

I was on a mission.

I found those incredible mentors and was so grateful for their impact on my life, I vowed to pay it forward and become a mentor too. :)

Today, there is a place where, no matter where on Earth you
live, you can have access to the kinds of world class leaders who mentored me. Thanks to the internet, you don't even have to leave home. You can access their genius via your computer anytime you want. You can download the lessons to CD's or Ipods and take them wherever you go!

My dreams come true every day because of the commitment and the investment I made in myself at a time when I had so little to spend. But I made my own personal development a top priority and it made all the difference in the world.

I am now a Motivational Speaker who gets invited to come speak to audiences at the kind of events that change people's lives, like the ones that changed mine.

I was recently interviewed by Heather Vale, the founder of this unique organization.
