​In honor of the 125th anniversary of Success Magazine, the editors sought out 125 of the most influential leaders, coaches, authors, mentors and thought leaders to know in the US in 2022. These are leaders who made long-lasting positive changes in people’s lives. After taking nominations for months, receiving hundreds of nominations, and vetting the voting process the Success 125 is completed. This past December I was contacted by Success Magazine and was told that I had been nominated for the Success 125. My first reaction was shock. Then when I saw some of the names of others who had been nominated, I was extremely humbled but also feeling realistic that my making the final list was a long shot. These were names like Grant Cardone, Tony Robbins, Ed Mylett, Glen Stearns, and Will Smith. God is amazing! Last week, I was notified by Success that I had made the Success 125. I want to thank everyone of my friends and family who voted for me repeatedly! Thank you to my friends at Joy Community Church who voted for me. Thank you to all my former business, marriage, and grief coaching clients who voted for me. I want to thank you especially for the opportunity you have given me to positively impact your life or business. Thank you to all my friends from High School who voted for me. I am so humbled and honored to receive this award. I feel incredibly grateful for the awesome people that God has blessed me with and my opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives.
