April 16, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
How are you being fed? Now, when I say, How are you being fed? I'm not talking about, you know, breakfast, lunch and dinner. That's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about how are you being fed from the people, the places and the things that are around you? Do you surround yourself with people that say, Yes, I can do this?  Or do you surround yourself with people or influences that say, No, or bring negativity into your life. We've all had different upbringings in our life.  In fact some people think it’s ok to go back and blame their upbringings. They use it as an excuse for where they are at in life... [read more]

Being A Chameleon

April 2, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week's article is about being a chameleon.  Now, before you think I am talking about something fake, I'm not.  I'm talking about having the ability to adapt to your surroundings...changing your colors in order to fit your situation. I had a situation with a bride and groom in a sales call recently that reminded me of this.  We sat down and we talked about their day.   Literally within the first three minutes of our conversation the bride dropped a couple expletives.  Now some people may get offended by that but in my head I felt "that's okay".  Why?  Because it showed she felt comfortable with me and it kind of brok...

Reviews Emergency (pt1)

January 10, 2019 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A massive welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. It's this time of the year when our Facebook newsfeed turns yellow, and those cute little words start popping up.

I keep getting questions like: "I have requested them for a review. Why have they gone radio silence." "Everybody had fun, so why did I get  just a few words long review?" "Is it so hard to collect reviews?"... [read more]
