Do You Want To Know?

Here is the story… for the last five years or more, this award winning newsletter, ezine, article or essay – your choice on wording – has been written by me and emailed out each week by my team to people all over the world who sign up and agree to receive it in their inbox. In the most recent couple of years, my articles make their way onto social media sites as well.

The feedback coming in is saying, “We love your articles and share them with our family and friends each week.” and, “We have been printing out your articles and putting them up on our board at work now for over two years, everyone starts talking about whatever it is you bring up each week. It is great for conversation with co-workers and our personal growth.”

One thing you know for certain is this – this platform is not a place where goods and services or an offer are constantly being promoted – in fact – rarely if ever is anything being promoted or pushed on anyone. If it seems to me, that it is appropriate to point out a worthwhile service or book or product which would help out the audience, it is my obligation to let you know about it.

This is why you are being asked to sign up to hear the call with John C. Maxwell on March 2, 2016 and consider passing along this article to others so they may have the opportunity as well. Here are two things we know for certain:

First is no one is going to wish they made that meeting at the office once they die. Their tombstone will not read “He really wanted to be at that meeting – sorry.” The link below will take you to a video which is brief and the call with John C. Maxwell will be under one hour.

Second is, isn’t is sad, yet true, so many people are already dead – they just haven’t made it official yet? It is my thought, in fact it is now my practice personally, that we are here on this earth to lead a life that matters. We want to make a difference. Where we stumble is, “well yeah, I do, but how do I do that?”

Let me introduce you to an opportunity to listen to John C. Maxwell for an invitation only call. You must be sent this link and write in my name – Mitch Tublin – when asked who sent you the link. What you will learn about is the organization which will take you to this place, the place where you will learn how to make a difference. How to lead a life of significance. Click the link, sign up for the call, get on the call and thank me when we see each other one day soon.

In Just Three Words

three-wordsIn the world of business, or in any aspect of life, the ability to connect and communicate is absolutely essential.  How well you are able to conduct this activity, to communicate, is often the difference from being successful, often quite rapidly, or not successful at all.

In just three words, a message may be communicated and often in a powerful lasting way.

Consider for a moment the company, the brand, Nike and their three words – Just Do It.

These three words have taken on a life of their own.  Often repeated in all types of communication these three words represent Nike and their brand.  No matter where or when these three words are quoted, for a moment, your mind is thinking, Nike.

What might your three words be? The three words to describe what you represent.

The three words your business represents.  The three words which describe what you are about. In just three words.

Here are a few three word examples for you to review which communicate a message:

  • I love you.
  • I am sorry.
  • You are hot.
  • You are best.
  • Thinking about you.
  • Way to go.
  • How are you.
  • You go Girl.
  • Got your back.
  • Get good first.
  • Do it afraid.
  • Build your image.
  • Live your purpose.

  • God bless you.
  • Never give up.
  • You freaking rock.
  • Stop drop roll.
  • Always be closing.
  • Stick with it.
  • Stay the course.
  • Body mind spirit.
  • Purpose passion spirit.
  • First to fight.
  • Deeds Not Words.
  • Protect and defend.

In just three words consider each of these examples.  What comes into your mind?

A picture is painted. A message is communicated. In just three words.

Here are a few more examples of messages communicated in just three words:

  • Share the passion.
  • A servant’s heart.
  • Lead by example.
  • I don’t know.
  • Have great fun.
  • Ride the wave.
  • All I have.
  • Love from within.
  • You are safe.
  • We are one.
  • Raise the bar.
  • Liberate your soul.
  • Lift you up.
  • Happy to help.
  • An unforgettable experience.
  • I voted today.

Take a few moments and let me know some of your three word statements.

Will you consider, in just three words, how to describe your business? In just three words how to describe what you are about?

Take your time. It’s not a race. Be clear and concise.  This makes your message easy to remember, repeat and be understood.

Three Keys To Creating Your Successful Networking Process


“The only difference between where you are right now, and where you’ll be next year at this time, are the people you meet and the books you read.”

–  Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, author of Life Is Tremendous

Networking. The ability to skillfully network may be one of the most valuable wealth building tools available to anyone. Wealth meaning more than money. A wealth of connections and relationships. A wealth of resources and knowledge. A wealth of contacts and their contacts.

The reality is most people do not understand how valuable networking is to their professional and personal lives.

Here are the 3 keys to creating your successful networking process:

1.  There is a need to focus on the purpose of the networking. This will determine where to network.

2.  A networking plan and strategy must be created. This must include a method of both capturing names and information from attending networking events and facilitating methods of follow up after the networking events.

3.  An understanding of the fact that in order to network effectively it must be understood and carried forward that networking is not about yourself. Networking is about the other person.

A discussion of the 3 keys to creating a successful networking process:


Okay, our first point – why you are networking and this will determine where you should be going to network.

  • Looking for a job?
  • Seeking to sell a product or a service?
  • Looking for an employee to hire?

Each of these should determine where you go to network.

For example, if you are a chiropractor, you should not be just networking with fellow chiropractors. Maybe once or twice a year at an event or a convention to learn new techniques. You are probably not going to obtain new business referrals from other chiropractors. You might consider health fairs, or events where yoga or other workout folks are or nutrition focused events.

Let’s consider a person who is seeking a job. Should they network with other people who are seeking a job? Maybe once in awhile. This will probably not be helpful. Instead where are the people going who might be in the business or field where they wish to be hired. Attend these networking meetings.


The second point is to create a networking plan and strategy. This must include a method of both capturing names and information from attending networking events and facilitating methods of follow up after the networking events. This cannot be stressed enough. The majority of people never follow up after attending a networking event, or even in general networking and meeting with people.


The third point is to have an understanding of the fact that in order to network effectively it must be understood and carried forward that networking is not about yourself. Networking is about the other person. It is not about me. If we just start networking because we need something; it is not going to happen. Attending networking events is not like going to the store and selecting items off of the shelf.  This is about building relationships. At the end of the day, people want to do business with whom? People they know, like and trust. This networking is step one. You need to connect. See where there might be some common thread or an interest. This will assist in the relationship building.

Approach networking with the value and importance it will add to you in your entire life. The more effort you put into networking, the more you will obtain from it.

Can’t We All Just Be Happy?

HappyThere is absolutely no doubt when you are determined to obtain something, you will have it. Which is why it never ceases to amaze me when witnessing how much time and effort average people, just like you and me, put into being miserable, mean, mosh pits of wasted space on this planet! They walk around with this twisted face. Many growl at you – they growl – not speak. Nothing is ever good enough. If it’s a cloudy day, the sun is never out. If it’s sunny, it is always too hot. It never ends.

Now please don’t get me wrong, my view is to always give people the best foot forward report card. It is always my assumption that most people mean well and wish to proceed and be of service and add value to others. Unfortunately, in the report card of life, it just is not the reality now is it?

For Example, just today, there was a huge disruption on the commuter train line, Metro North, from Stamford, CT to Grand Central Station in Manhattan ( New York City ).

In terms of volume, of the three lines which Metro North operates, the Stamford Station is by far the single busiest station. People were losing their minds. Even as a train or two was provided for a short term solution, everyone packed aboard the train and jostled with others for a seat for the usual fifty two minute ride into NYC.  By no means is it my suggestion to somehow figure out how to be happy about these circumstances. The point is, “Do you have to become miserable about it?” After all, isn’t everyone else here going through the same thing? Now by your behavior you add to everyone else’s experience by your verbal and other displays of your personal misery. Are you seriously thinking you are the only person who is going to be late for an appointment or for work or for something? Do you seriously think you are the only person considering how they are going to be able to return home at the end of the day if this is not repaired?

When we determine how we will show up each day, it is our duty to ourselves and our fellow inhabitants on the planet earth to intentionally show up happy. It will be difficult at times when being influenced by others to keep the happy face on. Try. This is a habit worth working on so it becomes a state of mind. Believe me when admitting it has not been easy for me either. We all have our moments. Let’s just try to reduce the amount of times we display our unhappiness and strive to increase the amount of times we display our happiness.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.”
