To go all dictionary on you…
The speed and direction of a moving body.
The aforementioned moving body is you, should you accept the mission. The question you have to answer is where to and how fast? I’ll help with the rest!
Because life is short and you only have so much time in the driver’s seat. Play accordingly!
SO…HOW WILL I HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR CAREER GOALS?
I became an executive by age 30 for the top media company while also increasing my income by over 500% in 7 years. I’ve also developed a level of trust and respect that enables me to dive into projects that peak my interest. All this while being the youngest member of the Sr. Executive team. Better yet, I’ve been able to successfully coach others to the same success and increase their earnings, respect and confidence in the process. YAY!
This is what led to the birth of The Velocity Labs. Many friends and co-workers would come to me for advice and I found myself painting a familiar roadmap over and over again which they applied to increase their own paychecks and flexibility.
So, instead of you digging through hundreds of books, thousands of academic research papers (only us weirdos do this ;o), and perusing hundreds of websites, you can subscribe to The Velocity Labs (for free). I’m going to share the specific techniques and systems that I have put into action to achieve more in my career. On top of that we will cook up additional labs where we will research and develop the best methods to get from point A to Z. Beyond that, and to quote Matt Damon in “The Martian” – we are going to science the $h!t out of this”.
I will lay out the tested tools that powered me to extraordinary results, including: becoming an executive for the top media company by age 30, starting my own business, leading multimillion dollar businesses, as well as methods that have successfully helped my team members and clients achieve more and be more fulfilled.
You will receive boiled down actionable steps that will allow you to shape a career of your own design, not someone else’s.
TICK TOCK…TICK TOCK! YOUR LEGACY IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?
The average human will live 25,205 days (based on the 71 year world average). That leaves little time to make your dent on the universe. You can influence this a bit through your lifestyle, the country you live in, and your gender; females live approx. five years longer than males (note to self: Get a sex change and move to Japan).
At its core we all have a ticking clock, and until Indiana Jones answers my call to search for the Fountain of Youth, we’ve gotta ROCK THE YEARS WE HAVE! How can you do this? By reaching for YOUR MAXIMUM CAREER VELOCITY more quickly, which equals more money, flexibility, and respect.
So stand up and YELL
I have an amazing wife (Sydney) and two fantastic boys (Maverick and William). Those wee ones bring so much joy and my wife is just plain wonderful. We enjoy dessert accompanied by a dash of food, movies, trips to Alaska and other adventures together.
I’ve spent the past 10 + years powering Fortune 500 companies to build operational excellence and cultures of innovation. The skills that aided me most were my strategic foresight, focus on process improvement and ability to coach and inspire others.
That said, this wasn’t the path I originally sought. I was supposed to be a world famous director before settling at the predominant media company where I quickly climbed the ranks. Along the way, I found my energy to pursue my additional interests waining.
As I approached the grand milestones of 35 years old (gasp), I acknowledged that my life didn’t match up with where I expected to be career-wise (Steven Spielberg Jr). On top of this my dad was battling various health issues (cancer at its core), and we were expecting baby number two.
There was a lot happening and although I pride myself on what I had accomplished by this point, I also had to be honest that I had so much more to give. My dad’s impending death and my son’s impending birth prompted some heavy reflection. Through various exercises and explorations, I un-covered my purpose and accelerated my results to achieve it.
My aspirations have evolved. There are still similar in that I want to make a dent in the universe and impact people at an emotional level. That’s where The Velocity Labs comes into play. This is by far the scariest thing I’ve done. Putting myself out into the world for all to see. That level of transparency for an introvert like myself should be very interesting and I look forward to what I will learn on my path to inspire others to achieve their true potential and reach their maximum velocity!
I love learning about being better and finding systematic ways to make it easier; I love those with a passion to improve and want them to succeed. My goal is to create an educational platform and harness its power to change the world, starting with YOU and I. Sound ambitious? I hope so!
You see, my boys need to see that you should never give up and that if you truly focus on something you can achieve extraordinary results. The skills I teach will have their future in mind. A future that is about embracing who you are and not caving to other people’s priorities. A future where they don’t just become a cog in the system but rather an engineer of a better way and better life. I also have a love for movies so don’t be surprised if they sneak into my writing and programs.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain ”
