IOD: Impact of the Day

I am a True Believer of stories.

Stories have changed my life, built my businesses, helped me inspire others to raise hundreds of thousands for local charities. Not to mention, led to deep connection and relationships that are priceless.

Everything that Impact Club is, and is built on, is a Story – nothing else!

IOD: Impact of the Day

Is The Game I devised, based on what I’ve taught and have practiced for a decade, to help others who are interested in storytelling to make a difference, to turn that interest into a meaningful outcome.

Whatever the problem is in life, you’re one great story or crafted narrative away from solving it.

The Constitution is the story of 55 framers, that built a nation.

Harry Potter is the story of one lady, who become a billionaire.

A strong marriage is the story (Sitcom) of two people, til death do us part.

A thriving community is the story of many people, who share common values.

Whatever you want, I assure you, comes down to your ability to inspire others to join you in that fight.

Want more customers, clients, users for your business? – must inspire (more) people.

Want to fundraise more, more easily? – must inspire (more) people.

Want a raise at work, within your company? – must inspire people (i.e. the boss, etc.)

Want support for your ideas? – must inspire people (…to care about them).

Whatever it is…


IOD: Impact of the Day –

You can think of it as: “Crossfit® for those who want to make a difference.”

Mind: Belief is everything. A weak mind, leads to weak beliefs. Weak beliefs, lead to little or no conviction. And without conviction, well? Results don’t come to those with weak conviction.

Body: Love it or hate it? It doesn’t matter, let’s get after it. A strong mind paired with a strong body, makes us invisible. Body is about ownership and confidence. Not perfect abs.

Business: This is your financial engine. It supports you. Creates opportunity. Whether it’s a profession. Startup. Or established business. It all comes down to skill and relationships.

Relationship: This is about connection. Deep human connection. It only happens when the mask is dropped. And when people authentically, and unapologetically, own their stories.


Before then, starting around March 1st, we’ll start to release IODs on a sporadic basis, as a means to test and fine-tune the Operations component, so that we may get them out each day.

The best part?

IODs are 100% Community (i.e. Impact Club member) driven.

You’ll see. 🙂
