"It’s one thing to guard your brand by protecting the quality standards of the product or service you offer the public (your commodity) its another level of leadership to guard the integrity of the system and the process." J Loren Norris
YOUR MONEY HAS A CHAIN OF CUSTODY! DO YOU KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM? Does it matter to you as a leader?
In Congo and other similar places around the world, exports are highly scrutinized. In some cases it is illegal to export certain things like illicit drugs or banned substances. In other cases there is nothing illegal or illicit about the commodity, like diamonds, cobalt, avocados or cocoa but the process of harvesting them.
As leaders we must understand the difference because we can unwittingly be supporters of very bad, criminal behavior. Violent or even murderous acts have been carried out to harvest and export certain commodities. There are international laws and process rules in place to curtail this behavior but it continues none the less.
How about in your organization? Are there processes and systems in your team which are not as clean, pure and above board as they could be? Are there “grey areas” where the ambiguity of the rules play to the favor of the most successful seller or the most popular employee? Are there different rules for different ranking employees? Do these systems of ambiguity allow for mild forms of abuse of the system and potentially of others?
It’s one thing to guard your brand by protecting the quality standards of the product or service you offer the public (your commodity) its another level of leadership to guard the integrity of the system and the process. The “chain of custody” is equally important.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
