10-min-cover10 Minutes of Insanity

He had already overcome incredible odds to have his ultimate dream at his fingertips.  So why did he pull a prank that almost cost him everything?

People have been asking this question for 45 years and now the 1972 Heisman Trophy winner is finally ready to tell his story.

Johnny Rodgers didn’t just tell another “what went wrong” story of an elite athlete.  No, that would be like calling for a “fair catch” as a punt receiver, something that in all his high school, college and professional days, he never once called for.  Instead, he bravely recounted his fear of a rooster that terrified him as a 3 year old – and how he learned from that opponent to develop his unique running style.  He recounted struggling for oxygen as an asthmatic and now teaches that “to succeed you must want something as bad as you want oxygen.

This is not your typical story.  It is powerful enough to disrupt your life.  You will enjoy the story because it is fast paced, entertaining and shows how one mistake can alter our biggest dreams.  But it offers a redeeming list of lessons learned that direct from a man who overcame 2 million to 1 odds.

Check it out.  Available in ebook, paperback, audio and signature hard back edition.

“The Black Book of Making More Money in Tough Times”

Black Book of MMM in Tough Times 2013

Many think it is impossible to make money when everyone else seems to be struggling.  But in my  second book, you will find how small, medium and large businesses have done just that.  The great companies  realize increased performance, production and profits over a longer period of time, even in the Tough Times, because they follow these time honored principles.  Meanwhile, lesser companies stand in awe, wondering how the great ones do it, while continuing to struggle to survive.  They watch and wonder how anyone could take this bold step while the best leaders know it is common sense and the good business practice

In reading this book, you will find that I balance theory with practicality.  You will find carefully exposed the myths of the industrial age that are no longer relevant in the shared economy.  You will also find how for-profit and non-profit organizations integrate this paradigm shift into all aspects of business from Customer Service to Sales to HR, Finance, and Management.

Throughout my writings, I challenge the reader to settle for nothing but the best.  You will find yourself asking the following questions:

Do I have the courage to take this bold step?

Will I embrace this innovative and proven business model?

Will I step forward as a leader in this new age?

  • Faith

to overcome the

  • Loss of their Farms,
  • The Great Depression,
  • World War II,
  • Personal Illness, and
  • Family Injury.

This book is a rare challenge to step back from our busy lives and assess what we have been given.  It is also a refreshing challenge to leave the legacy we want.  Embrace the challenge to sense and seize your opportunity to leave the legacy you want.

I wrote this book for one main reason, to honor my parents as they reach 90 years old.  Part of that reason is recording the family history for those grandkids, great grandkids and others who would follow that would never know my parents.  In the midst of this book, I found a very profound sense of my own identity as a grandchild of a homesteader.  In the years since that writing, I have come to understand why I dream like others don’t and take risks to live those dreams.

So this isn’t merely a story of some family you don’t know but instead the story of every family and how we pass the legacy of our values to the following generations.  I hope it will be an inspiration for all to record their own stories so they are not lost within a generation of their passing.
