If you don’t use it, you lose it.

I’ve been an international speaker for over a decade now and been interviewed hundreds of times on podcasts, radio, and television, but if you don’t use it, you lose it! For the last couple of years, I’ve been turning down interviews and speaking engagements to focus on finishing The Impact […]


Time to Step Things up!

For the last couple of years, I’ve been almost entirely focused on my upcoming feature narrative film, The Impact Factor.Focus was crucial to getting this movie made and it’s been quite a journey! Most people have no idea what it takes to create an independent film. But, it’s time for […]


I’m about to get a lot of negative feedback.

Why? Because I’m going to be starting to put myself and my biggest project (The Impact Factor Movie) on the firing line. Note: I’m not saying I won’t get lots of positive feedback! I already have received wonderful comments and that won’t stop! Many people are going to LOVE this […]


Movie Post-Production and Launch

Sometimes we forget that every time we get together magic happens and that the particular set of friends and the spark of the power of being together, sets off a firestorm of impact that is unlike any other.


Life Expectancy

What’s the point? I’ve always set my life expectancy by comparing myself to my Dad. Dad lived to be 92 – Exactly. It was a goal to make it to 92 and he did.   Unfortunately, I’m not as slim and trim as Dad was, but I’m in reasonable health […]


How to Cast A-List Actors in Independent Films

It’s the classic “Chicken and Egg” Stuff. Investors want to see A-List Talent in your movie before they put money into your project and A-List Actors want the money in the bank before they look at your script. I’m going through this right now with The Impact Factor Movie so if […]
