Unleash Your Passion

I've been lying awake at night… unable to sleep. It'll be 2:00 in the morning and I'll get up and walk around the house, attempting to tame a mind that is racing with ideas.

Does this happen to you?

To be a true entrepreneur, it should. World-renowned entrepreneurship expert Michael Gerber, author of "The E-myth", has a remarkable quote about passion that played over and over in my mind as I couldn't sleep.

Article is continued below

“Passion keeps me awake at night.  Passion puts color in my words, and words in my head, and heart in my music, and music in my voice.  It is what connects me to every living thing, even those I have never seen or heard of…  You know how it feels, you know what passion is even when you don’t.  There’s not a soul on the face of the earth who hasn’t been taken by that energy that is so innately, so organically, so uniquely me.  Passion is who we are and why we’re here.  Passion is so understandable and so unmistakable that it’s a wonder any of us get anything done with such a racket going on inside…It’s the passion of the soul that keeps jumping off rocks, that yearns to fly like a bird;  it’s the passion of the mind that pursues visions.”

If you are unfamiliar with Michael, you should get to know him now. His message and guidance has transformed my business, among millions of other small businesses he has touched.

Michael is currently launching a 55-city tour with all day seminars, so he'll be coming to your city. The first event is August 6 in Denver, Colorado. If you're in the area, I strongly suggest you attend. Follow this link for more information.

I'm going to be joining Michael on some of his tour, so I'll be at this event in Denver. Hope to see you there!

And remember… without passion nothing of significance will happen. Passion is the driving force behind it all.
