Ok, You Are Really Wealthy And Have An Entourage… Who Is In It?

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

I was recently talking with a colleague about athletes and famous people. The conversation went all over the place and finally ended with entourages. If you were really wealthy, a pro athlete or a famous singer or actor, who would you have in your entourage?

I asked my colleague and right away she said her mom. I chuckled because even though I love my mom, I would never include her in my entourage.

My entourage would consist of a number of people:

  • Two of my current best friends – to keep my grounded a little bit. They are people I TRUST and no matter what they have my back.
  • Personal Trainer
  • Personal Assistant
  • Publicist – one of the most important people who can help and drive my “brand” in the right direction.
  • Business Manager
  • Mentor – a former athlete, singer, etc., who is respected and has gone through what I am about to.

That is the list I came up with. I did consider a driver but I never would consider a personal chef or massage therapist.

It is kind of interesting to think about.

Ok, your turn:

  • What do you think of my entourage?
  • Who would be in your entourage?
  • Would you ever consider having me be part of your group?

I look forward to reading your comments.

The Time Is Now! The Question Is What Does That Mean To You?

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Over the past few months I had the opportunity to watch the Dallas Mavericks have an amazing playoff run at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Their motto or mantra was, “THE TIME IS NOW!”

Every time I wear the t-shirt they gave me I think about, “THE TIME IS NOW!” and what that slogan means to me in my business and personal life.

The question is what does it mean to you?


  • What would you like to do right away?
  • What would you like to accomplish at your job?
  • Where would you like to travel this summer?
  • What relative should you visit or call?

Be like the Dallas Mavericks and be a champion this year!

I look forward to reading your comments.
