First--before we get started, I wanted to tell you about a VSE...A VERY SPECIAL EPISODE coming up on June 1st of 2021.

It's the long-promised "Memento Mori" episode, which translates to "remember death," and it's a tribute and in honor of my Mom, Brenda J. Franks (6.1.49 - 10.25.20). It will feature our conversations on her death bed, and we'll talk a lot about what LIFE is about, and how someone can leave it so gracefully.

Can you please set your calendars for that one, give it a listen, and recommend it to friends? I promise I promise it will be worth your and their time in listening.

As far as becoming an IDEA MACHINE...and remember, all of the goodies, video, articles and more are at

Here is some of the powerful, impactful, and very sexy training in which we engage in this potentially life-changing episode (IF you do it)!

  • My story about becoming an Idea Machine.
