The Change Store

This would be an interesting shopping experience…


What if you could visit a store that sold change? Not like pocket change but real world change–transformations in your life? You pay money and you receive a change in your life. There is no way for you to know what the change will be. It would be like gambling. You pull the lever, the slot machine spins the wheels and… maybe a new dining experience at a restaurant you have never visited or a recommendation for a Tony Robbins book or a new relationship or change in career or an unforgettable vacation or a move to a new city or who knows?

All you are promised when you enter the store is if you buy something, you will not leave the same and, almost always, the change will be for the better. How often would you frequent this store? How much change would you become addicted to? Would you be a frequent shopper?

Can you imagine walking into every mall and seeing, amid the stale, predictable shopping mall staples (JC Penney, Sears, Express, Macy’s, Forever 21, Yankee Candle, etc.) a store that always promises a new experience–a life changing experience–The Change Store?


Today’s Lesson: Guess what? ¬†You probably knew this was coming, but The Change Store actually exists! The owners do not actually call it The Change Store, though. We just call it “life” and the best part is you do not actually have to pay any money to walk out with a positive change! Depending how much change you really want, all it costs is a little¬†Courage (sometimes a lot of courage), Patience, and Persistence. Ready to go shopping?

People are made of many things, but only a few things define a person. For me, those things are Philosophy, Leadership, and Health. I help independently owned and ethically run businesses break through communication obstacles and challenge conventional thinking. Sometimes that means delivering insightful marketing content; sometimes it means having tough but compassionate conversations. All the time, it means communicating and building relationships with honesty and integrity. I am a vegan, an individualist, and occasionally a man willing to risk everything to reach a goal. I am known for being uncompromising in my values, and for being someone who dares to own his own life.
