Beach Clean Up

SurfRider Foundation Beach Cleanup

Last Saturday, I was invited to help with a beach cleanup with the SurfRider foundation. Not generally my cup of tea (so to speak) but a tremendous opportunity to meet people who know a whole lot more about the plastic in the ocean than I do and let's face it, plastic in the ocean is probably my biggest passion right now.

Together we collected about 35 pounds of garbage. I personally added less than 1/2 pound but in my defense, I collected nearly 100 cigarette butts which tend to be labor intensive and very toxic containing such wonderful chemicals as Benzopyrene (carcinogen), Arsenic, Acetone, Formaldehyde and Ammonia. They are such a big issue even ABC News had something to say about it. More...

It provides us with food and other resources. In many ways and for many people, the ocean is the key to the bottom level of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs.More...

Environmental Presentations that Sell

Last weekend, I participated in a huge event. It was really big for 3 reasons and I’m going to share them with you now…

Maurice DiMino – The Sicilian Mentor

Maurice DiMino - The Sicilian Mentor

 I want to introduce you to someone who believes very strongly in what we are doing here. Maurice DiMino; Maurice is one of the most powerful speakers you can ever hope to see and more importantly, he is willing to teach anyone how to be just as good as he is at speaking in public on stage.

If you want to know more about Maurice and if you want to learn what Maurice has been teaching me, you can register for his next boot camp, he holds them twice a year.

Let’s face it, if I’m going to get people to understand what I have to say, speaking in public is a valuable skill. So this is the first big thing, I got to learn from a true master, Maurice DiMino. More...
