Hi everyone!

Well it is finally here... at least in the North Eastern US... Spring! It has finally arrived! And YES I am excited!!!

My two favorite seasons have always been Spring and Fall. Spring to me is about "rebirth". It is the time to plan and put the wheels in motion after a long period of rest. Spring gives people hope. It is the season where as a young boy living on a farm my uncle would plant the seeds in the garden and we would talk about the amazing harvest we expected in the fall.

And I loved fall mainly for Thanksgiving and Football season{:~) But for the moment, let's focus on spring.

If you have been following my latest articles and the last newsletter, you know that I am going through my own kind of "re-birth". I made the decision to transition out of DJing in New York City and fully commit to getting back into speaking, coaching and consulting on a full time basis.

Have you ever noticed that when you truly make a decision, things just start happening to help move you forward? I discussed some of these things in my article New Opportunities In 2011. And in an article that I will be publishing in a few days... the Universe has decided to kick things into "overdrive"! Sometimes that is good... and sometimes it requires us to really explore how committed we are to the new direction we have chosen.

And let me just say this to you before the article comes out; I AM COMMITTED!!!

As the Universe is applying "leverage" to keep me moving forward, it has also opened up a couple of great opportunities. One is that I have been invited by my dear friend Carl Gould to become certified by his company as a 7 Stage Turnaround Business Consultant because his company is experiencing MAJOR growth since he released his latest book The 7 Stages of Small-Business Success: From Startup to Seven Figures in Three Years or Less.

Carl and I have known each other for several years. We worked together with Anthony Robbins and also have been involved in several Real Estate deals with each other. As a businessman, here is a little of Carl's Bio. "A lifelong entrepreneur and business owner, Carl has been at the forefront of the entrepreneurial community globally. Carl is an award-winning coach and business mentor. Carl has teamed up with #1 International bestselling authors Ken Blanchard and Stephen R. Covey on their latest book project, Blueprint for Success. With 90 independently-owned-and-operated offices worldwide, Carl has created the farthest-reaching business mentoring organization in the world. Carl and his team of mentor coaches have overseen the development of thousands of small businesses on six continents; and have conducted over 50,000 coaching sessions with entrepreneurs."

Because of our work together in the past, and the new direction I am moving in, Carl has asked if I would be interested in working as part of his team. One of the conditions that I asked him to agree to was that I would also continue to work my own business, and be able to allow my clients to have access to some of the resources that I will have through Carl's company. He has agreed and I am excited to say that we have been meeting weekly and moving forward on this new project over the past month.

One advantage of working with Carl is that it allows me to support my global audience here on the web site. I have had people ask if I would come and speak in other countries, and sometimes because of scheduling or budgetary restrictions, I have not been able to make it happen. My association with Carl gives me access to over 6,000 coaches around the world who have been trained and certified by Carl and his company, and this allows me to offer both global as well as specialized coaching with an organization that I believe in and know will deliver outstanding content and treat the clients I refer to them with the highest respect and professionalism.

Another advantage is that Carl's organization is aligned with a 501C3 Non-Profit, The Organization for Entrepreneurial Development. As part of my certification as a 7 Stage Turnaround Consultant, I also needed to become Certified by the OED. What this means to you, is that as part of maintaining my certification with the non-profit, I am required to offer pro bono strategy sessions with business owners giving them the opportunity to explore issues and opportunities within their organization in a private and professional manner. Being a business owner, I realize that it is a unique position where often there is no one to really talk to about what is going on in your business because most of your team is focused on the same areas that you are, and you may not have the ability to explore opportunities with a fresh perspective. I know that in my journey, having someone to talk about these things with always helped me, and I am honored to be able to offer that service through the OED.

If you are a business owner and are interested in one of these sessions, email me here. No matter where you are in the world, I can do one of these sessions with you over Skype.

Another thing that aligning with Carl opens up for me is more time... I am now able to take on more of my own clients for coaching and consulting. I recently posted an article about my consulting services but I haven't really been promoting it because I have been hesitant to take on any new clients due to other time commitments. But working with Carl has actually created more flexibility in my schedule because I have told the club that I am not available on specific days each week.

So I have decided that I am going to take on 10 more clients and I will be inviting people to participate by publishing an article announcing this offer in the next week or two on the website. But I wanted to open it up to those of you that read the newsletter first.

If you read the article on my consulting services you will see what kind of coaching I offer and who the ideal client is. What you can expect from me, and what I expect from the people I work with. You will also see that the rate my clients pay for an hour long phone consultations is $497USD. But as I move even further into this transition I realize that people around the world may be interested in these services, but may not be able to invest that amount in coaching. So I am going to make a special offer for the 10 new clients I am taking on.

Remember that I am only making this offer to 10 new clients, so you should decide if you want to take advantage of the special offer now because if you wait until the article comes out those spots may be gone.

Now here is the offer. The 10 clients that participate in this package will receive 4-1 hour phone coaching sessions. And 4 email coaching sessions designed to follow up on your progress and course correct when needed. This package is something that we offer through 7 Stages Turnaround for $2,500 per month. As a part of this package you will also be invited to a 1 hour webinar where I will discuss “The 3 Keys To Business Growth”. You can see a piece of an interview that I did with Jerry Pradier where I talk about those 3 Keys here. The webinar will be recorded and you will have access to it in the event that you cannot make the scheduled call. This presentation is something I offer as a live 1 hour presentation to professional organizations as a $1,500 keynote. And finally, another gift that comes from my association with Carl, anyone who signs up for this package will also be able to take an online assessment that will help us gain clarity on blind spots that you may not even be aware of that are preventing you from living the life that you desire. This assessment is an awesome tool for helping us zero in on the specific areas that will help you get the most out of your coaching sessions. The assessment normally costs between $59-129 depending on which company you go through.

So the offer I am creating for you has a combined value of over $4,000 and I am offering it to you for $997. Clients will be asked to commit to a 3 month minimum coaching agreement.

Because I am only opening slots for 10 clients I will close out the offer to the newsletter and open the remaining spots to the general public in 2 weeks.

I look forward to working with those of you who decide to take me up on this offer. You can reserve your spot by clicking on the link below.

Yes, I will be one of the 10 to take advantage of this coaching package!

There are a lot of amazing things happening, and I want to share it all with you. I look forward to connecting again soon.

With love and Respect,


PS: Remember, If you are a business owner and are interested in one of the pro bono sessions I mentioned, email me here. No matter where you are in the world, I can do one of these sessions with you over Skype.

PPS: I am also doing pro bono presentations for organizations that serve business owners for our Outreach Program. (Chamber Of Commerce, Small Business Associations etc.) If you are a part of one of these organizations contact me to see if your organization qualifies for our Outreach Program.
