Motivated by Grace | 3 Things Every Leader Must Do to Create Loyalty

May 18, 2017

Did you ever notice that the greatest among us tend to be last in line? Not because they are too busy to be there when the dinner bell rings, but because they are full of grace.

Grace is the highway that links the head to the heart.

Grace gives great leaders the fuel they need to do what they do best.

Grace is about serving others.

People ask me all the time to break down the proven processes of great leaders, and I always point out that it starts from within….

When Will Atlas Ever Shrug?

April 11, 2017

Over a decade ago, we began to study the world’s elite 1%. These were people who were different from the crowd, and who represented the tip of the organizational bell curve.

We traveled the globe to study the worlds best and brightest. The standouts that changed their world and those around them. We looked in every nook and corner of the world to discover his or her secret. We worked from sun-up till sun-down over 24 time zones and 5+ years….


When You’re This Good, You Don’t Need A Brand (Yeah, But What Would Bobby Say?)

April 6, 2017

Azaleas, Dogwoods, and Jonquils.

Shorts, sundresses, and pretty girls.

Pimento cheese, Coca Cola, and pecan pie.

Springtime in Georgia can only mean one thing…

The Masters!

The greatest sports and marketing event of all time is once again upon us.

It is an event unlike any other. Founded on tradition, passion, and a desire to succeed, Augusta National hosts the world’s greatest sporting event every year.

Best of all they do it on their own terms….


Underdogs, Ice Packs and Playing in the Trees

March 31, 2017

Everyone seems to think the College basketball season “begins” and ends in March (well, technically April).

That’s strange considering the season tip off occurred last fall, but people just got around to noticing it.

It’s easy to do, with names like “Sweet 16”, Elite 8”, and “Final Four”, who wouldn’t want to be a part of it?

Even Warren Buffet gets into it. He presumably once had a contest where whoever picks the perfect bracket wins $1 billion….


When Bubbles Collide

March 23, 2017

If you missed the world news this week, you missed a lot.

More terror in the UK, a new look for the US politics, and more and more nationalization.

Normally, events like this are considered “outside” of our bubble, but sometimes we need to step back and take a look.

We all know it is best to stay inside your own bubble. This means focusing on what you can control, and above all, blocking out the negative “noise” that comes in from the rest of the world….

Why I am Grateful

February 23, 2017

There seems to be a trend going around where people post various reasons for being grateful each day. I think this is a fabulous idea, but I find it curious why so many people focus on themselves, and not those who made the biggest impact on their own lives.

When you stop and think about it, words can’t express the true nature of gratefulness. Words can only tell a story we hope others can relate too.

We, as a civilization, have tried for thousands of years to encapsulate our thoughts so we might best express how we feel about a certain subject….


Eating For a Cause at 3Ci

July 25, 2016

What do 3Ci, Jersey Mike’s, and Bert’s Big Adventure all have in common? UberEats! Ever heard of it? UberEats works just like Uber, except it delivers food instead of people. Simply download the app, choose from over 100 restaurants, place your order, and watch as your food is delivered right to your door. We decided to put UberEats to the test yesterday and order from Jersey Mike’s. Why Jersey Mike’s you might ask? Yesterday, 100% of the days sales were donated to Bert’s Big Adventure.Talk about giving back!…
