A few weeks ago, I was asked to give a talk on organization to a group of entrepreneurs in the wellness lifestyle industry. In pure irony, the notes I prepared for this talk look like a scrambled ramble of ideas. The organizer appears messy but gets it all done. Here are some gems from my notes for you, dear readers:
The key to my success: I know exactly what I want and I let NOTHING get in my way.
I’m a Big Picture Master, a Results-Driven Red (see The Four Color Personalities for MLM by “Big Al”).
I know nothing about running a non-profit organization, but I make a non-profit run.

That’s how I stay organized. That’s how I’m the Big Picture Master. That’s how wellness, abundance and purpose continue to flow freely to me and my family. Much love.
