Our Cybersecurity Opportunity – Sharing My TEDx Talk

We’re all on our own journey through our lives and careers. For me personally, I’ve overcome childhood tragedy where my sense of identity, security and trust were taken from me. Now I help others become safer and more secure through my efforts in cybersecurity, training and speaking.

In my TEDx talk I show, through a cybersecurity lens, how we all have the ability to turn our weakness into a strength if we choose to.

Let me know what you think of the talk below. And share your thoughts on how cybersecurity, risk management, and turning weakness into strength can help better our lives and those we influence.

Sending a special thanks to Norris Clark and the TEDxCapeMay crew for putting on such a great event!

Our Kickstarter Book Project Launch: Love, Forgive, Never Give Up

Lover Forgive Never Give Up Book CoversAfter years in the making… Daniele and I launched our Kickstarter  Book Project for: Love, Forgive, Never Give Up: How to Turn Tragedy Into Triumph, Adversity Into Advantage, and Take Your Life to the Next Level. 

Our mission with this book project is to empower readers to go beyond self-imposed limitations, reach their maximum potential, and become the hero of their own story, no matter what they’ve been through.

Visit out our Kickstarter campaign, watch the video, and IF this book is something that speaks to you, pledge any amount you see fit. Or if it’s not a fit for you, consider sharing this post to spread the word. Send them to www.LoveForgiveNeverGiveUp.com

Here is a selection of the book sections:


The book starts off with the Next Level Life Vision section. You will be guided through an easy to follow, step by step process that will help you decide what you want your life to look like starting now, and moving forward through the next 10 years, all in bite-sized, easy to process increments.

Next, we walk you through identifying your major internal motivators that will set you on the path for success, and take you through a priority-focused goal setting process that gives you the clarity necessary to start making “Next Level Decisions.”


Next Level Decisions are integral in achieving sustainable growth in any area. We all make thousands of decisions every day, most of which are unconscious or automatic and don’t serve our overall well being.

The key to positive change is to identify the decisions that have the most impact, and then to consciously and intentionally make the right decisions based on your Next Level Life Vision. This book will teach you how to make these distinctions a matter of habit, freeing up your energy to direct towards what matters most to you.


The book will feature over 33 short, powerful chapters on specific, actionable ways you can practice more love, forgiveness, and perseverance in your life every single day. Each chapter teaches a crucial, in depth lesson, provides example stories and case studies to show you how to apply it, and is complete with and Take Action section that encourages you to get started right away.

Here are some of the chapter titles included in the book:

  • It Starts With Self-Love
  • Give The Love You Need
  • The Journey To Self: Why You Need To Journal
  • Be For Giving (Selfless Vs Selfish Action)
  • Forgiveness Is A Gift You Give Yourself (And Others)
  • Live Life At The Next Level (AKA Fake It Til You Make It)
  • To Be Great, Start By Being Grateful
  • The Five P’s Of Perseverance: Passion, Purpose, Plan, Persistence, And Persistence
  • How To Find The Strength In A Perceived Weakness
  • To Get Ahead… Give Back
  • Live Your Life’s Purpose: Find, Create, or Copy

Read the book straight through, or pick out the section you need to work on most in your life. Another massively impactful way to utilize this book is to focus on implementing one lesson in your life for a week at a time, and watch the quality of your thoughts and habits take on an extraordinary new direction.


To ensure you’re making meaningful progress and staying on track with your goals, we’re including a section on how to measure your progress. As a bonus, we’re providing links to bonus materials that will give you access to free online daily progress trackers and checklists to make sure you maximize and sustain your gains!


In this book, we’re not just sharing our experiences, but also the wisdom of 99 experts who have used those three powerful lessons in their own lives time and time again to overcome indomitable challenges and take their lives to places they only dreamed possible including Priya Rana Kapoor, Samara O’Shea, Ron Sparkman, Bershan Shaw, Kip Brooks, Pam Vredevelt, Austin Hill Shaw, and many more.

Thank you for all of your encouragement and support along the way!

Our Lives Are Our Stories: Love, Forgive, Never Give Up

Stories are a metaphor for life. When crafting the hero’s journey into our stories, inevitably our protagonist runs into conflict. If there were no conflict, there would be no real story. But what makes the story great isn’t the presence of conflict, it’s the way in which our hero handles it. Our hero make decisions […]
