My Interview by Don Terell on Top Networking Tips


Listen to my interview on Top Networking Tips on the Don Terrell Show at:


Book Review:   7 Ways to Play  a Better Game  by Bo Eason

It’s Never Too Late to Fulfill Your Dreams!

Bo Eason says, Stop Settling And Fulfill Your Greatest Dreams!

The word domination, like competition, has really taken a beating lately. We’re told we’re not
supposed to dominate the people around us and that we can’t dominate without doing harm to
 others. We need to be nice and kind and gentle. Domination is bad. Cooperation is good.

Well, here’s what I think of when I use the word domination: You have to dominate yourself,
not so much the people around you. You have to surrender your full loyalty and commit to what
your spirit is calling out of you. What’s getting in the way of what you’re called to be in this life?


Dominate those things that you are allowing to block you from fulfilling your declaration. That’s
domination. Here are 7 ways to get you in domination mode – it’s time you entered it.

One way to get started is to understand what you should be doing every day. I’m not talking about
a long list of daily tasks. It’s simple, you need to be doing any and all of the following 3 things:
1. Preparing to perform
2. Performing
3. Recovering from performing

If you’re not doing one of those three things, you’ll have a very hard time dominating. That sounds
 crazy, but I’m serious. These are three things that are making your business or your dream grow,
and you know that when you’re doing one of those three things, the business or dream is coming
into existence. If you’re not doing one of those three things, you know you’re either going out of
business or your dream is dying.

Figure out what your three things are and make sure you’re doing them. This is something that all
the best competitors and performers do––they’re either preparing to perform, or they’re performing,
or they’re recovering from performing. Doesn’t matter what their discipline or art form is; that’s
their pattern to reach the top and stay there..

Ask yourself: Are you partaking in at least one of the three things I mentioned? Can you be doing



Have a healthy, happy, prosperous networking week!
