How to Build Your Community: With Tim McDonald
October 21, 2017
Tim McDonald is an full-time writer and speaker who travels around the world, sharing how to build stronger communities. This past June, he addressed the Christa McAuliffe School of Arts and Science’s 2017 graduating class in a riveting speech on how to build your community, the future of work, and how to live a life that matters.
McDonald wasn’t always a full-time inspirational writer and speaker. Traversing from Community Manager to signing on as Director of Community for Huffington Post, McDonald started off finding great success imbibing the company life. Inundated with requests for interviews and blog features, he soon became uneasy. McDonald recalls asking himself:
“Why am I spending my life living somebody else’s life-- the company’s life. Instead, why am I not living my life? And at that point in time, everything changed for me. It made me really start to understand how we are in control of our own selves and our own decisions and what we want to create in the world: the change that we want to see.... So I started looking at how I could form something that I really loved doing, which was connecting with people. Not just to get business, but to help them fulfill their dreams; to fulfill their desires. To connect them with other people that could help them co-create the world that they wanted to live in.”

Develop a Winner’s Mindset: Advice from Jon Taffer and Tony Robbins
October 17, 2017
Do you have a large goal you’d like to see realized, such as going pro before finishing high school? @Entrepreneur’s video entitled “Develop a Winner’s Mindset: Advice from Jon Taffer and Tony Robbins” shares three ways anyone can start changing their story right now and reach the success of their dreams, simply by tweaking their mindset.
The first step, according to Jon Taffer, is to learn that there are no excuses. In his work around the world, he found the common denominator of failure was always excuses. Those who blamed those around them, their environment, or any other mitigating factor on not reaching their goals were more likely to fail. Those who took ownership over their own failures, however, were able to learn from them and grow each setback into success.
