Just Some of Frank's Keynote Topics

Everything You Want is on the Other Side of Fear

Too often we are living the life we were told to live – not the life we want. Why? For many of us, it is fear. Fear is a powerful emotion. It motivates some people to take action while paralyzing others. We will never rid ourselves of fear. It is an emotion we all have,  but we can learn how to prevent fear from dominating our life.

Imagination vs. Intelligence for Success

Change is coming faster than our ability to understand it and create a plan of action.  Being "smart" is no longer enough. The intellectual that is required to research, create, design, invent, develop, and test, is very different from the innovative mindset needed to start, scale, and sustain a business. Imagination offers the ability to see the changing world and say "What if?"

Changing Procedures Changing the Odds  

Far too many small business owners are not adequately prepared to navigate the landmines of creating, scaling, and sustaining an organization. Forbes says: "50% to 60% of small businesses fail within three years; 80% fail within 5 years.; 70% of SBA loan applications are rejected." Changing the operating procedures will both change and improve the odds. 

Explore the Secret of Walking on Water

Creating, expanding, and sustaining success in our personal and professional lives can be like trying to walk on water. Whether we want to admit it or not, what we know is not as important as recognizing what we don't know. And who we know is far more important than what we know. Let's explore the secret to walking on water.
