“Bad calls” happen in life, too. Bad calls can be instrumental in your career and life as well. These bad calls can include – Illnesses and severe health issues for you, family members, or key business leaders; a business partner goes out of business or sells the company; a product you created causes damage or injury; or you might just have one of those “bad days” that leaves you disappointing, discouraged, and distraught.
We’ve all been preached to at some point that “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” That’s easy to say when you’re not experiencing “tough” at the moment. In the end, you will best adjust and overcome adversity when you have 3 important characteristics – confidence, trust, and perspective. Confidence in your ability; trust on your ability to “win;” and perspective that allows you to be fearless and bold in the face of adversity. We all will face adversity and sometimes need to win against all odds. The championship teams and the championship people will always find a way.

Welcome to the most powerful and dynamic program I’ve ever created for business owners and executive leaders on unleashing your vast potential and maximizing your own unique talent and that of those around you.
My concept of the “open gate” is that unlike dogs, we as humans often tether ourselves inside our own personal gates and due to our own self-imposed limitations and fears, choose not to risk going through the open gate in front of us. The results include dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, poor leadership, bad morale, inefficiencies, and boredom. Bottom line is you and your business leave money and talent on the table.
