I never understood why one would want to simply do something when we have the potential to be the best at something. Please always go after your BIG dreams because the world needs more dreamers who take action! With the help of so many amazing people, here are a few of my favorite professional dreams we have been able to make happen and accomplish together:

World Championship of Public Speaking
Emmy Award Winner
Interviewing my favorites like Simon Sinek, Jane Goodall, and Chris Guillebeau
The creation of 31 Days of Kindness
Rookie Speaker of the Year for Vistage International
The 50-City North American Tour
The creation of The Map to Dreaming BIG
Professionally speaking full-time (around 100 keynotes & trainings a year)
World record for professionally speaking on all seven continents
Writing my first #1 best seller
Completing my first IRONMAN 140.6
Implementing the handwriting campaign

Here are others I am working on and would love help with:

Be the World Record Holder for The Most World Records: I love breaking world records! I have always loved them since I can remember. My first attempt was the biggest collection of coke tabs (my friend and I collected over 5,000). World Records bring people together, they push the limits and remind us what is possible when we put our talent, resources, money and hands together! Whether it is the biggest, longest, most, fastest, shortest, tallest… I want to help make it happen! I need 252 more World Records to have this world record so reach out!
