    Hi Sunday; I love this comment. Its a reminder that whether you have a disability like I do or are perfectly healthy resilience and refusing to let the obstacles in your life keep you from your goals is attractive and even sexy. Too many people afraid of failure or playing it safe; so those of us who take chances stand out. Glad to have you along…[Read more]

    Hi Celine; Thanks for the kind words. I never used to think of myself as inspirational. I have had to learn that there are too many people who don’t show up in their own lives so that people like me who do their best to live every day are inspirations. I agree there are lots of people who also want exposure on tv, radio, and podcasts. Some will…[Read more]

    Hello; Thanks for helping me celebrate. Even when I rooted against his show time lakers I still respected him and could respect most of his players. I have come up with a new saying about fear.

    • What you said about fear sure sounds awesome:

      “You just have to choose which scares you more, the fear of failure or looking silly or the fear of missing out on a great opportunity by playing it safe.”

      Great way to live, I’d say.

      Thanks for sharing.

      • Thanks; We all love hearing when we say something that helps another person. Just wish more people would learn this lesson and learn it sooner in life. Blessings, Max

        • You’re right, Maxwell, it’s better that more people learn this lesson sooner in life!

          Have a lovely weekend.

          • Hi Black; I had a good weekend, thanks for asking. Hope you had some fun on yours. and yes it would be good if we didn’t need to take so long in our lives to learn these lessons. what’s worse, is for me at least it seems like I have to learn some of them over and over again. Take care, Max

    Hi Sunday; Thanks for the comment and for the reminder to be consistent. I think there are so many opportunities to reach people if we are willing to ask for them.

      Indeed, you showed a lot of consistency. Despite all of the odds that seemed to work against you, success was achieved eventually. I am sure many would be more attracted to your message and it would surely boost the Laurie Lawson brand!

      I am glad to learn of your new milestone in Studio TV interview. I congratulate you sincerely for it.

      Indeed, when we ask for more we get more, and this goes to show the power of consistency in whatever we do.

      Your relationship with Laurie Lawson is worth emulating. She is ready to assist when there is potential.

    • Hi Maxwell,
      I love that quote from Pat Riley “There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either IN or you’re OUT. There’s no such thing as life in-between.” It reminds me of the need to make that decision to be or not to be.

      Being on a TV show is a milestone worth celebrating. I celebrate with you. Congratulations on this…[Read more]

    • Hi Maxwell,

      Its pretty cool reading about how you went ahead to do your first TV interview. I agree that this must be too special because it is your first.

      With so many individuals wanting to their message in similar platform, I think reading this would be an “inspiration” 😉

    • Hi Maxwell,

      Laurie Lawson doesn’t ring a bell but I am glad I got to know her after reading your post.
      It is inspiring to learn of your progress from being a radio show interviewee to a TV show Interviewee. I am sure many would want that transition.
      I am going to follow Laurie on social media and share every positive that your blog and…[Read more]

Blessings, Max

    • Hello, Maxwell, this is a great read and congratulations on your interview. I picked up several lessons from you and quite agree with you that when we don’t ask, we simply don’t receive.

      • Hi Jacqueline; Thanks. I’m glad you got something good out of it. And don’t forget asking also includes prayer, meditation, and sending out positive thoughts into the universe. Take care, Max

    • Hi Maxwell, it cool knowing about your TV interview with Laurie Lawson. You make her sound like popular radio on-air personality. I am heading to YouTube to watch this interview and hopefully I would get takeaways for my online marketing!

      • Hi Paul; Will be looking forward to hearing what you learn from Laurie. I think one thing is the connections we can make by doing a tv show, radio show, podcast,, or other activity that allows us to have a personal exchange with others. Good luck, Max

      • Hi Paul; Well, I do my best to make the hosts and the shows I appear on sound interesting. Glad to hear I did a good job talking her up. :) I think you will get several good take aways from our chat. Most importantly good things usually happen when we take chances and push ourselves outside our comfort zone. Take care, Max

    • Hey Maxwell,

      I am very sure that Laurie Lawson saw great potential in you and she has demonstrated great skills and professionalism proving that to you in the show.

      This is especially with the four questions!

      Indeed, she repeated your potential and appreciated your ability and style.

      I would say this is a great read and worthy of share!

      • Hi Amit; Yes, Laurie is a talented and skilled interviewer who puts on a quality professional show and who I have no doubt will grow to be a force for positivity in the world. Thankfully, so many people have seen similar things within me over the years as I have continued to grow into my own voice. Thanks again, Max

    • Hi Maxwell,

      Congratulations on your TV show. It was great and the conversation with and about Laurie Lawson was motivational.
      I want to wish you many years of good shows and I bet the sky is just your starting point! 😉

      • Hi Winford; Thanks for the pat on the back. I also appreciate your positive energy. Yes, I too hope this is just a beginning. While its a long way off, I’ve been invited to be a speaker on the 50 50 retreat in 2018. It will take place during a two week cruise to hawaii. So, that’s something to look forward to while I wait for more tv interviews…[Read more]

    • Hi Maxwell,

      I think that the steps you have taken was a huge one. Many of your followers would readily be inspired for your decision not to give up.

      Obviously you have made a strong connection and impression on Laurie Lawson, and it is not surprising that she hosted you on the Show.

      I guess we should learn to get inspired with this method!

      • Hi Carl; I’m glad you noticed that we made a connection. This is important to building good relationships whether in business or our personal lives. I have been surprised by how many close relationships I have built with people that started by doing a radio or podcast interview or submitting a post or part of a post on their websites.

      Thankfully, I got something even better. I got to sit down with a real person who I actually knew. I had a 30 minute interview where I got to share so many great pieces of advice with my friend Laurie and her audience. And I learned once again that just because something is new…
