When people hear of these events, they often find some comfort in saying that they were spared because it didn’t happen in their area. Nevertheless it does effect someone that is family or someone that we know or we are acquainted with.

It  lies on a fault line that last erupted in the early 1800’s that extended out 200 miles from its center. That earthquake was so powerful that it reversed the flow of the mighty Mississippi River. Some say another quake is eminent in the future.

I am an Indiana based Christian, Husband, Father, and prior Us Air Force Veteran. I originally began my marketing career in the 1990′s as I embraced a joint opportunity with my parents in support of their marketing efforts with a major corporation. I secured a distributorship and worked it sparingly. My activities were more focused on the indirect mentoring I was receiving through them from some of the big leaders in the business. Being connected to my parents success positioned me to meet great people of leadership. It was exciting for me to see the lifestyles they lived as they traveled all over the world sharing their success and implanting dreams, visions, and possibilities in the lives of others. I too saw the chance to diverse and secure my family’s future. I later independently changed direction trying my skills at offering various products and services with some success. What I discovered was that there are others just like me that were looking for a “niche” to attract others of interest to add value in their lives. In 2010, I came to the realization that people weren’t just looking for “stuff” and those that had “stuff” were looking for “solutions”. People are seeking the most effective means of presenting an offering. People want to know “how” to market. People want to become successful in their efforts.(whatever success means to them) The balance in that equation is not just self gratification, It becomes of value when you can help others. I realized that it is of my God given gift to be of purpose to others. I realized that there are Great People in the world whom are doing Great Things. I have had the privilege to meet several of them. It delights my spirit to be remembered and valued as one of those people. So there came about a paradigm shift within me….. I have channeled into areas of marketing that I feel are good resources to help empower people. Along with those resources I offer my consulting and advisement as a result of the training and knowledge that I have received over my tenure in marketing and promoting. I engage with Business to Business groups I support local companies and organizations I support non for profit groups I support help organizations I collaborate with individuals and companies assisting with promotions, advertising, and branding I recognize people,companies, and groups whom are making a difference in the world right now. Simply Put….I Care…..I am Concerned… I am Sincere….I will take Action Three things: 1. Building Relationships Embracing the opportunity to take the time to get to know who people are and what they have to offer. 2. Creating Alliances To not be bias or prejudice against other offerings if they have merit, good intent, and integrity. 3. Referral Marketing To jointly assist others in promoting good products and services that could be a benefit to someone 4.Living Life to Make a Difference in the world To leave a lasting impression on someone that life for them became better as a result of knowing me. The world is a very big place. There is room enough for us all to exist. We should help, support, and encourage to success. We should build up and not tear down. There is GREATNESS in us all….Let’s Embrace it! At the end of the day there are only (3) things that run through the minds of people when they meet you Who You Are…. What Do You Have… And, Why They Should Want It….. Be of Value To Others Much Success
