I wish everyone Health, Wealth, and Happiness in 2012.
Recently, I was honored to be a part of Dr. Bob Goldman’s 19th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine on December 10 in Las Vegas at the Venetian and Palazzo Resorts as a keynote speaker on Innovation. Dr. Bob has been a childhood friend since we were 9 years old and I am proud of his A4M’s conference with leading anti-aging experts where you learn about cutting edge technology and discover new products and services. The attendees included physicians, medical professionals, scientists, educators, journalists and investors from all over the country and the world.
There was so much to learn from the A4M conferences about a healthy mind and body. I was touched by the genuine caring and giving of all the attendees about the health and welfare of others.
Bob Hope said, “If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”
I read a book by Peter McWilliams who wrote, “You Can’t Afford the Luxury of a Negative Thought”. According to him, doing good for others enhances the immune system, lowers cholesterol, strengthens the heart, decreases chest pains and reduces stress. A study at Harvard showed that even thinking about doing service produced positive psychological results.
The joy of giving your time, service or money to others is more than a noble calling, it is a pleasurable one. It is uplifting, a high without the need for drugs or alcohol. Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.
In 2012, as all of us strive to meet our goals, please remember the old adage: “You can’t help someone uphill without getting closer to the top yourself.”

I’d like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Sean Rodriguez from the Tampa Bay Rays. I had the great pleasure of spending yesterday afternoon with Sean Rodriguez, Johnny Damon (players for the Tampa Bay Rays) and their families as we took them on an extensive tour through our laboratories at Schussler Creative. Later I met them for dinner at Zelo Italian Restaurant in Minneapolis to celebrate Sean’s Birthday. Sean and Johnny are in town for the next couple of days as they play the Minnesota Twins in a three game series.
Steven Schussler’s book “It’s A Jungle In There” is making its way to England. Due to popular demand, readers and fans of the U.K. have expressed an interest and a desire for the book, so Sterling Publishing , Barnes and Noble and other independent book sellers have teamed up to distribute Steven’s book throughout the U.K in July.
Last Thursday I had the pleasure of being a Keynote Speaker at the SATO Leadership Conference in Orlando, FL. I was given five words to base my speech around; Change, Courage, Unity, Innovation and Hope. I’d like to talk a little about these five words because I feel they are important to remember and initiate in day to day business or activities. We always hear the saying, “Change is good.” I agree with this saying. If it wasn’t for change we would have never been able to advance in technology or the medical fields. Courage is a word I know well, and talk about in my book, It’s A Jungle In There. I talk about how it takes Courage to live out your dreams even if people tell you you’re crazy. Unity is a word that everyone has been a part of, whether it’s working on a business project or making dinner there is always someone there to give you a helping hand. Innovation is the key to new ideas and contraptions. Without Innovation we would not have the light bulb or Twitter. Last but not least I’d like to talk about Hope. Nothing can be accomplished without Hope. Hope is the fuel that drives you to Innovate and Change. Hope brings people together and gives you the Courage to keep moving forward day after day.

In Steven Schussler’s book, It’s A Jungle In There, Chapter 26 talks about bridges and crossing them a second time. At some point in your entrepreneurial life (maybe at many points) someboby is going to disappoint you or, possibly, take advantage of you. When this happens, should you just write this person off and decide to work with him again? To learn more about what Steven has to share on this topic in his book go to It’s A Jungle In There to order your autographed copy.
Chapter 20 of It’s A Jungle In There by Steven Schussler is about PEOPLE. Do you care about the feelings and needs of others and take active steps to help them achieve their personal goals? Think back for a moment and identify someone you really respect — somebody for whom, if he asked you to go to the ends of the Earth, you would make the trip. Chances are this somebody is a person who cared about you. Giving others the sense you care about them is one of the most important elements when it comes to make a positive impression on them. This and many more Inspiring Lessons, Hard-Won Insights and Other Acts of Entrepreneurial Daring are written in Steven Schussler’s book “It’s A Jungle In There”.
