New Year's with Kirk Franklin at Willow Creek Community Church

Each year, our team comes up with a theme for a new year ahead.  It honors the experiences we’ve learned from the year behind us, thankful of both good and bad.  2011 was BREAKOUT - a force emergence from a restrictive condition.  With swagger, we attacked 2011, withstood it’s challenges and finished STRONG.  Instead of #OccupyWallStreet, er rather #OccupyExcuses with the world’s smallest violin, we instead created solutions.

Today, we’re continuing forward sharing many of these experiences on this blog into Transformer 2012 - more WILL meet the eye!  To transform the way people think, feel, manage and reach towards financial independence.

Lastly, for the past 8 years now, I’ve created a tradition of ending the past year and beginning the new year with our family, of all places...in CHURCH!  Our kids are gonna party hard one day during this occasion so I want them to know how and with WHO they should spend it with!

Big thanks to Kirk Franklin and his crew flying up from Dallas, TX and doing five concerts in 24 hours.  They rocked the stage of Willow Creek Community Church in Barrington, IL ... here’s a little taste of what happened.

Happy New Year 2012 everyone!  May it be a transforming year!!
