Michael Coles–founder of the Great American Company–overcame terrible setbacks to excel in business and in life. He talked about his struggles and triumphs in his stirring autobiography, Time to Get Tough.
Recently I hosted Michael on my video/podcast, the “Biz Communication Show.” In our discussion, he described his arduous journey to the top, rising from extreme family poverty to become a hugely successful entrepreneur. Most importantly, he invited listeners around the world to accept this challenge: “Let’s Get Tough Together,” referring to the threats we face and fears we experience because of the coronavirus pandemic.
During our international crisis, you will benefit greatly from hearing Coles’ guidelines for surviving–and even creating a more stable world than we knew previously.

And talk with me about scheduling my DISC Training Seminar for your company. Here I am presenting my DISC seminar for Explore Gwinnett in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
Recently Cricket Elliot–pictured above on my right–invited me to attend the annual awards luncheon for Explore Gwinnett (marketing brand for the Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau). I accepted enthusiastically because of my seventeen year affiliation with the organization, presenting communication seminars every few months. As Tourism Education Director, Cricket has hosted my presentations many times.
The elegant event took place in the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, Georgia, next to the building that houses Explore Gwinnett.
When guests finished dining, the awards ceremony began. As Cricket began reading an award citation, I thought “Gosh, that sounds like some of the things I have done.”
THE AWARD CITATION
Here’s the citation Cricket read in announcing my “Friend of Gwinnett Tourism” award:
She first said:
This person has been a true supporter of Explore Gwinnett. He always has shout-outs for us on his channel, Facebook and wherever he is. He has sent the GTEP program so many valuable speakers and is always a top professional in his presentations. His passion to see others succeed is why this man will remain at the top of his game for a long time to come. He is a delight to work with and his positive attitude is ever present.
Then she added: “And Sandra would be very proud of you.”
That was the unmistakable clue that the citation referred to me. My wife Sandra had transitioned to her celestial home on October 5. Just a few months before that, not only did Sandra attend one of my Explore Gwinnett seminars, she participated in a role playing session with me. Cricket and the seminar participants welcomed her lively involvement.
Cricket’s next words:
To my amazement, Cricket called my name, and I went to the stage to accept the award from her and Lisa Anders, Executive Director of Explore Gwinnett. You’ll see Lisa on my left in the photo.
As you can imagine, not only was I surprised I was very thankful for this honor. Serving Explore Gwinnett has been a grand privilege, and I am eager to host new communication training seminars in the new year.
