Tony Robbins is the real deal

I can attest that Tony Robbins is the real deal. I have read his books. I have read the books he suggests to read, and attended a live seminar. I met Tony in person. I have talked with people who went to school with Tony and also have benefitted from his motivation. I still utilize many of his philosophies and strategies in all my endeavors. The two book by Tony Robbins I would recommend are “Unlimited Power, and Awaken the Giant Within.” Tony has been studying success and the psychology of achievement for decades. There is also a docuseries on Netflix about Tony that I highly recommend.

Day 6 in the Big Apple

Can’t believe this is day 6 in New York. Like always it has been a whirlwind. Such a special time to have mom join us for two days. First Christmas without dad, and mom flew to New York by herself. We had such a wonderful time. We took her to a Broadway show “Waitress”, walked to Rockefeller Center tree, Trump Plaza and Tiffany’s. Mom had a challenging time getting back to Rochester with the snow storm. She had a couple flights cancelled and had to reroute to Buffalo, but made it home before midnight. We have had a great time walking Central Park, seeing Broadway shows, Cats, Paramour, and tonight Lion King. Our last night in New York, tomorrow we will be flying back to California.

Day One Live From NY

Day one in New York. We had a great flight from California, no problems or delays. We landed about 3 pm and there were no lines for a taxi. Traffic was light going into Manhattan. Owning our time share at the Hilton, allows us to go right to the 37th floor and check in without delay. This was a pleasure as we walked past the Hotel lobby check in line, which looked to be about thirty people long. Got checked in, had drinks and food at the Hilton lounge, and then headed for the subway. We got our 7 day unlimited passes, and took a trip to Macy’s on 34th street. Walked the streets, and hit Starbucks before calling it a night. We are so excited to be back in NY. Except for one year, we have been coming every year since 1998. We are ready for day two.

Off the Island Back to Work


Well we are off the island after three months. It was a wonderful summer at Elm Tree Island. Now back to work. Time to finish up my next book “Public Speaking for Fun and Money”.  I will have it edited and ready for publishing in a couple weeks. I had a great stand up show fundraiser in August at Alexandria Bay with #MikeMarino, they loved our show so much, we are already booked for next August.  I’m back in L.A. but flying back to NY in a couple weeks, to be the opening stand up act for Mike Marino at the Turning Stone Hotel and Casino. Then I’m flying back to L.A. to film a pilot, and perform again with Mike Marino and Marco Assante at the Ha Ha Cafe in North Hollywood, October 13. I have been setting many goals for this next year, one of which is to be blogging more often. So I will blog weekly.

I will be live on KCAA Radio 1050AM, broadcast to the Inland Empire California, tomorrow morning at 8 am, promoting my book “COPS”.  I will be on the Gary Garver Show, Gary has always been a supporter of the police, and every Police Charity that I have been a part of. Tomorrow I will be talking about the book on his show. Now I look for every opportunity to get the truth out there about the Police Profession, and get the message out there, how truly heroic and honorable our American Cops are. I still want as many people as possible to be able to get the book, so it is still on special for .99. Download the BOOK today, and please give me a review.
