“I’m often struck by the ability of a single individual to change the world.
Think Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Anne Wojcicki, Martin Luther King Jr. and Indira Gandhi, to name a few.
If you don’t happen to know who he is, he hangs around with people like Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Larry Page and other great thinkers, leaders and innovators.
His bio on his website says he’s an international pioneer in the fields of innovation, incentive competitions and commercial space.

People sometimes ask me how I’ve created two successful businesses.
And having read what Peter Diamandis wrote, I’d have to say I have the same superpower he does.
Here’s what he goes on to say in that blog.
If you have the right people on your team and enough money, you can create the technology — that’s called innovation.
If you have the right people and the right technology, you can attract the funding — that’s called venture capital.
But money and technology alone, without the persistent and passionate human mind driving things forward, are useless.

I’m talking about the multiple six-figures kind of success.
Heck, I’m even talking about the multiple 7-figures kind of success.
If you’ve got the superpower…
Celebrating Your Success!
