Do it, you'll love it! 
 
It’s never too late to live a day that makes you proud.  If you don’t learn anything else from this post, learn that.  We get one shot at the present and we can make it great.  Today is the day!  There’s no age limit on changing your course, and to settle in and be stuck in a life that isn’t authentic is a tragic waste.  Honestly, it’s never too late or too early to be who you are capable of being.  There’s no perfect time – you can simply start and stop whenever you want.  You can change or stay the same.  You can make the best or the worst of today.  It’s up to you, so make the best of it.  Do things that startle you.  Feel things you’ve never felt before.  Spend time with people who help you grow.  Live a life you’re proud of.  And if you find that you’re not, have the courage to change things. -- read: http://www.marcandangel.com/2015/05/20/7-reasons-its-time-to-move-on-and-embrace-change/

Jump In! Don't Be Afraid to Share Your Voice.

Do you have something to say? Share it on your channel. 
                                       (Video or transcript)

I remember the days when I used to go ahead and install cable television.This is your channel, and your channel means that . . . the reason I’mgoing to jump really quick into social media is that there are a lot ofpeople out there right now that don’t realize that you have that voice, youhave that power. This is your channel. It’s not on cable. It’s not on FiOSor whatever the case is. What it is, it’s on social media, whether it's Facebook, whether it’s Twitter, Google+, everything else out there. This last year for me has been a learning experience. Not only have I brokenground on my foundation, but I’ve watched a lot of people personally, professionally, struggle with a question mark, afraid to jump in, not quite sure what to do.

Remember something, this is your channel. You can talk about whatever you want. I would say that in some aspects you need to possibly be careful. We will talk about that another time. But in the meantime, I would say the channel that you create is the channel that speaks from your passion. Your persistence and consistency is going to go ahead and take you to the next level.

If you like something in particular — you love food, you’re a wine expert
– I happen to like wine and food, but that’s beside the point. I also am a
big fan of business, but I see business as being personal. I look at social media, I look at your channel as an opportunity to get your voice, your message out there and share it with like-minded people. Those people are going to be the ones that are going to ask questions. They are looking for answers, and they are going to follow you, and you need to actually give back. It’s not about taking anything. It’s about putting the informationout there, giving it away, expecting nothing other than to share your ideas, your thoughts, your philosophies, your passions, your interests, and allow people to get to know who you really are.

This is why I am doing this today, and I hope that you come back and join me again. That’s pretty much it for now. Remember, create your own channel, tune in to mine, and let’s share the tools to build those relationships.
You may not be on cable TV, but you can be all over the Internet, and who knows where that leads to. In the meantime, I’m AJ. I appreciate you stopping by.

My son +Joshua Ogaard Anesko recently shared this with me, and reminded me that this is something I've taught him over the years.
He suggested I share it because we've all seen it in our lives. Those who want you to succeed and those that want you to fail. I like to help pull people up so they can be successful. What do you think?

I have a favor to ask my G+ friends. Could you swing by my new updated website and share it with at least one other friend of yours? If you know anyone who is in need of promoting their business I will give 10% off any orders this week. Thanks everyone! If you have any questions give me a shout out. #sharing

Up close and personal. Check out the details. This is etched and color filled. I love the impact this makes. People can give them as gifts, use it for special events, or as a trophy for a golf tournament. #unique #wine #promotion

The wine trophies are finished and look great. The Breast Cancer Recovery Golf Classic really does support a fantastic cause and raises awareness and funds each year to help those in need. Honored to be a little part of this annual event. #wine   #trophies  
Cheers!

    I share, give tips, ideas, food for thought as well as interview some very interesting people. Giving back is just the first step forward. I am restructuring my "new blog" to really shake things up. It will have more than business tips. In fact, I am taking the gloves off and will be taking shots that may leave you laughing, crying, or saying to yourself "oh come on, that didn't happen." At times I may push some buttons and get people a little hot under the collar. It's almost time to unveil the stories, thoughts, ideas and tips that will keep you wondering, "what's next?" Cheers!
