"Once there is a glimmer of hope, take it and run with it!" — +James Fierce , Featured Guest #CLBLive

James Fierce is an innovation coach, entrepreneur, and survivor! Up until about 8 years ago, James was on an excellent career track in management with a Fortune 100 company in the pharmaceutical industry. All of that came crashing down when the Great Recession began and he was laid off from his dream job in sunny Southern California. He was able to find another position relatively quickly, however, that company shut down 8 months after joining and he was left reeling.

Within a few months, James was able to secure a new contract position, but there was an unknown menace sneaking up on him and he soon found himself dealing with circumstances that he had never experienced before in his life. Feeling completely overwhelmed and having no clue how to deal with the physical pain and the increasing depression he ended up quitting the contract position and isolating himself from friends, family, and from society.

As a result, James ended up losing pretty much everything. The California dream home, perfect credit report, all of his earthly possessions — all gone. He ended up moving to Mexico for a year, but spent most of the time feeling sorry for himself and not taking advantage of the opportunity for a new start.

Ironically, what really turned his life around was his dreaded return to his hometown in Indiana. Something clicked, his attitude started to change, and he began to understand that returning to this place he hated after being gone for 16 years was an opportunity to hit the reset button and start over.

After a 5 year struggle, James is on track to bring his #FierceMojo back via his innovative and creative GoFundMe campaign (gofundme.com/2dfttpv8) and is courageously sharing his story to encourage and inspire others.

I invite you to join me on Saturday, July 30 to #MeetJamesFierce for an hour that will inspire you to overcome your struggles and #GetYourFierceMojoOn!

A Day Of Reflection And Inspiration.

Day #9 of ‪ #ThirtyDaysOfFierceMojo  
#GettingMyFierceMojoBack‬  

To be honest the GoFundMe campaign has not been nearly as successful as I expected at this point. I have helped a ton of people throughout my career and life and I guess I just expected more people would rally for the cause. It's made me sad. Today is a day to reflect on this and figure out next steps for the campaign.

Here are the Fierce Top 5 Reasons you should donate generously to the cause.

5. Fierce is really a good guy. Whenever he gets the chance he does everything he can to lift up his friends and support them. ps that's a really cool name...who wouldn't want to help a guy out who had that name?

4. Supporting a local business with a heart is a hip and trendy thing to do right now. You do want to be hip and trendy don't you?

3. You get rewards!!!! Fierce will select them himself when he is in Mexico and lug them back with him. Let's make Fierce work his ass off.

Also, there are some product pics in the GoFundMe site but Fierce will be selecting several brand new vendors with really epic shit.
YOU CAN MAKE EPIC SHIT HAPPEN...THAT"S HUGE

2. By investing in this project now, you get to have a hand in helping it grow. Fierce has put together an inspiration board and will be looking for advice and ideas from the supporters of this campaign. He will take you behind the scenes as well and share information with you that won't be shared with anyone else.

And the number one reason to support this is....

1. The vendors that Fierce is acquiring are AMAZING artisans. Their craft is their livelihood and they put their HEART AND SOUL into every single piece they create. Many are just scraping by and have endured life situations that we cannot even imagine. Yet, their gusto for life and the amount of joy they exude when you engage with them is contagious. The store that will be built is one that captures their joy through their creations and their life stories which will be incorporated into the site.

This campaign is truly a labor of love. It is FIERCE.
It has a ‪ #FierceSoul

Early Morning Meeting With VP Development Elkhart Chamber Of Commerce


Day 8 Part 1 of 3 of #ThirtyDaysOfFierceMojo   #GettingMyFierceMojoBack   ‪‬

My ‪#‎FierceMOJO‬MOFO is in high gear!!!!! This morning I had a 7:30 am mtg with the VP of Development at the Elkhart Chamber of Commerce. She wanted a few tips on how to take the chamber FB page to the next level. Anyone who knows me knows how I roll when given the opportunity to shine...and shine I did :)

I put together a 10 slide Google Slide presentation jam packed full of tips for the chamber to use to improve their FB presence. I hit on most of their hot buttons and she was super impressed. I also showed her the workshop that I did for the Downtown Farmers market.

As a result I have already been contacted by the new Director of Downtown Elkhart Development who requested a lunch date to discuss how I can help him grow the city of Elkhart!!!!

Denise and I talked about putting together a conference for the Chamber members on a topic to be decided soon and she also wants to involve me in leadership academy.

And it's only 11 am. I have a networking event at a career fair later today and a Chamber Mixer this evening.

What are you doing to get ‪#‎YourFierceMojoOn‬ ?

Oh Android How I love And Hate You

Dear Android phone...I luv you but you have some issues I don't understand. How come I can post a pic to FB and it transfers instantly, yet to gmail and Google Drive it takes forever? Now I am pretty sure that Google, gmail, and Android are all Google products so I would expect there to be some synergy there.
And while I am on a rant, why can't I seem to share my Google docs on a Google Hangout but it works just fine on Zoom?
Come on Google get your act together!!!!!

Asking for help has always been hard for me. I've always been kind of a loner, always willing to help others, but NEVER feeling comfortable asking for myself.

But the human condition warrants that are appropriate times to seek help from friends and loved ones and when you don't you suffer needlessly like I did.

I hope you will join +Christine L Bowen and I as I share my comeback story of from the brink of hell.

Sometimes You Have To Let Your Mojo Work For You

Day 6 of #ThirtyDaysOfFierceMojo‬   ‪ #GettingMyFierceMojoBack‬  

Sometimes you don't have to do anything...your mojo does it for you. I didn't really have anything specific planned for today and was just going to figure it out as I go. Well sure enough something amazing happened...

I was actually feeling a little down this morning because the campaign wasn't going as well as I hoped and was scratching my head trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. Negative mojo was starting to creep in..."See You Really Are Not Worthy - Nobody Cares" was beginning to rear it's ugly head in my brain as I was on the walk with my dog.

And then comes Marjorie Clayman to save the day!!!! Having people rally to your cause gives you a huge incentive to succeed. Because then you are not just doing it for yourself but because also because you don't want to let those who are supporting you down. It's powerful and as social beings it goes to show how important it is to reach out...and also to support those who reach out to you.

So grateful for another day to ‪ #GetMyFierceMojoOn‬   and be a #FierceMofo  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok carry on

Innovation Coaching For More Farmers Market Customers

Day #5 of ‪ #ThirtyDaysOfFierceMojo   #GettingMyFierceMojoBack‬  

Today I spent some time at the new farmers market in downtown Elkhart doing Innovation Coaching with the manager and vendors. Since they've only been in business since May, their main focus right now is getting more clients in the door.

We discussed excellent short and long term strategies to make that happen as well as some ideas around branding themselves.

I absolute love it when work is more like play!!!!

Custom Keirsey Temperament Report for: Jim F 

Your Keirsey Temperament Sorter Results indicates that your personality type is that of the

Guardians are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services, from supervision to maintenance and supply, and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.

Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there's a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly -- they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.

Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.

Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population, and a good thing, because they usually end up doing all the indispensable but thankless jobs everyone else takes for granted.

Guardians at Work
As a Guardian, you enjoy working as a valued member of a team, whether you are leading it or following a credible leader. You like to work with people who carry their weight. You appreciate having clear-cut responsibilities and being recognized for your dedication and achievements. Your natural traits are those that employers have traditionally valued - and that successful companies still respect. You are responsible and loyal to an organization once you've signed on.

Establishing and following a familiar daily routine is critical to your well being. In your ideal job, you and your coworkers would all share information so that everyone could remain "on the same page” as projects move forward. Because you genuinely care about the people you work with, your colleagues and your customers appreciate your unassuming kindness.
