John B. Hewlett, Legendary Performer

  In June 2018 I had the unique opportunity to speak to the Million Dollar Round Table with over 15,300 in the audience in Los Angeles, CA. I had submitted my name for 17 years to get on their stage and it finally happened. What the audience didn’t realize is that I was very familiar on a personal level with their company and industry due to my father’s work in my youth. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share a story like this, as well as have my father in the audience. Hope you enjoy, and don’t just read this

The Promise That Scares You

  “You have more in you.  You MUST share it. You have no choice and I will not allow you to continue until you do.”     Have you heard this voice before?   It may sound frightening, and to be frank, it is.   But that is the voice in your soul talking.  Are you willing to listen?   The other night in Orem, UT, as I performed to my first of 2 sold-out shows, I looked out over the audience.   The entire first row was sound asleep.   Why would I admit this to you, when you

If it’s a goal and you can set it and break it and it’s not a big deal if you hit it, that’s a goal, so identify

Where It All Began: Kauai, HI

    Raptor loose in Kauai!   I guess you could call me a sentimental guy. Here I am, one hour left before I fly away from beautiful Kauai Island, but I’m here in Lihue, where pretty much a lot of my career creativity began. Back in March of 2000, we came here with my parents who cashed out all of their Marriott points and gave each of my siblings and I our own special room. My clock would never change.  I couldn’t figure out why I could not sleep, but I took advantage of the time and would walk

The Promise of Discipline

  Watch this post here:   Have you ever been to a conference where the view out your hotel window looked like this? What is fascinating to me is how often events are held at the great resorts of the world, with views such as this, and we are expected to still do our work, go to meetings, and deny what the natural man truly wants – to run outside and play! Who are these cruel meeting professionals and event planners?  (emoji laughing with tears)   The importance of Doing the Work is a theme I have been fascinated by
