Company Recommendation

It's always good business to share information about businesses that work with you. Especially if they do great work and treat you like family.

I work with a local printer here in Arizona who take care of all of my printing and marketing needs.

I thought I would share their information with all of you. If you ever need flyers, posters, banners, books, brochures, pamphlets and more; click on the link below!

What is your vision?

I was talking with a group of students last week and we talked about having a vision. We talked about having the best dream ever and then waking up. For most of us, we do what ever we can to get back into that dream as quickly as possible.

The funny thing is, when we wake up the next morning, we want to tell everyone about our dream, but we have a hard time remembering it! You know how you felt, but you try as hard as you can to remember what you saw and experienced. You want to experience it again! And again! And again!

Life is the same way.

I was looking at some of the quotes I write down from time to time and I read one from a friend/mentor of mine. His name is Delatorro McNeal. His quote is

"You pursue what you see!"

It's great quote, because it's so true. When you see something that you really want or need, you pursue it. We all have visions and dreams, but unless we write them down, have a visual reminder of that dream; we fail to accomplish it. "Out of site, out of mind!"

We all have visions and dreams we want to accomplish. Next time you have that great vision or dream, be sure to make a visual reminder that you will constantly see. The more you see it, the better chance you have for it to become reality. And just like that dream, be sure to share that dream or vision with the people you trust most. They can either push you or support you in your efforts.

I'm off to bed. I need to fill my head with great visions and dreams!

Have a great week everyone!

Thank you Rio Hondo

Last Friday I was invited to speak to the student leaders at Rio Hondo College in California. The Community College is located just outside of Los Angeles.

I have had the great opportunity to speak all over the United States and Australia. This was my first time speaking in the state of California! I had to double check to make sure that was right and it was.

I was invited to speak at the schools annual leadership conference. The conference is held to expose students to concepts and techniques to improve their leadership abilities. I was invited to give the opening keynote; facilitate several ice breakers and present two workshops. I had the opportunity to work with a speaker I became friends with this summer. His name is Mark Hartley. I learned a lot watching Mark present his workshops and present the closing keynote.

Tip of the day: No matter how good you think you are, you can always learn more. I took a lot of notes watching Mark. His website is below.

Friday was a fun time! The theme of the day became "attitude." Everyday we have the choice of bringing the right or wrong attitude to everything we do. Mark and I choose to have a lot of fun while sharing our knowledge with the students of Rio Hondo. That attitude was easy for the students to see. They chose to have the same attitude and day became a memorable experience for everyone involved! A fun experience!

For any of the Rio Hondo students reading this post, thank you and please send any photos you took. Above is a photo of Mark and I with one of the students.

The Beautiful Sedona Golf Resort! Perfect backdrop for our wedding!

On Saturday, October 16th I became a married man! I married my long time girlfriend Kelly! She is a very special person to me. I don't have enough time or space to say how special she is! We got married in beautiful Sedona, Arizona on a perfect day! Many of our friends and family say we have post card pictures to send to everyone.

We were surrounded by family and friends for a small intimate wedding that turned out just the way we wanted it. We had great time with family and friends and as many who attended agree; the food was Amazing!

When I get time, I'll b sure to post information and links about the amazing people who hosted and catered our wedding. Best way to thank the people who treat you well is to share information about them with others! Treat people right and they will treat you right!

Until then, thank you for all the well wishes and here are few photos from our special day!

Kelly and Frank

Yeah, New Business Cards!

I just got off the phone doing my usual walk through before a program or show. This Friday, I'll be speaking to the students of Rio Hondo Community College in Los Angeles, California. To insure that I give the best performance possible, I call ahead of time to ask a few questions and answer a few questions. The call is a great form of customer service, but it also provides what both parties satisfy their needs and wants.

So, now I just have to put the final touches on my performance and I'll be ready to hit the road.

During the conversation I received an e-mail containing the new design for my business cards. They are amazing! I really have to thank George Bernal for his hard work. He is the graphic artist and illustrator is designs most of my promotional materials. If you need someone to do great work for you or your business, go to

I'll have to handout my old business cards on Friday, but new ones at the top of this blog are awesome!

Hi Mom!

The Ladies of my life (My Wife and My Mom) on my wedding day!

I started this blog, so my mom could read it and keep track of what was going on in my life. Over the last five years, I've had other people start to read my blog and tell me how much they enjoy reading it.

After talking to my mom on the phone recently, she made a comment that inspired me to keep writing/blogging more.

It was a simple comment...."I read your blog the other day, I like what you posted!" That meant a lot. My mom is busy, but she still finds time to read the blog to see what I have to say and see what I'm up too.

Thank you for reading my blog and being one of my biggest inspirations in life! I'll continue to put up great stories, information and pictures to share with you and everyone else.

Until then, I hope to see you again soon! Remember to keep the phone lines open for our ritual phone calls!


Off to the Gym!

Some of your are probably wondering how my work outs are going. Since the last time I typed, I started working out daily and walking with my wife.

Things were going really good, probably because I wanted to look really good for my wife on our wedding day. I was doing p90X workouts and things were going good. I took a before and after picture and showed it with my wife and workout partner. I saw great results, but no weight change.

Since the wedding two weeks ago, I haven't worked out, but I've been eating everything I can. The results? I'm up to 155lbs! I saw some of my wedding pictures and my wife and I are committing to taking better care of ourselves.

So I need to eat everything in sight and workout! I'm off to the local Recreation Center now to hit the weights. I'm also planning to starting some hiking and trail running with a friend of mine who is a police officer!

So, for everyone reading good luck with your workouts and I'll continue to keep you up to date on me!
