Join me in Arkansas for an amazing event- September, 2015

Join me Sept. 3-7th at the amazing Re-Thinking Everything Conference!

I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at this conference twice before and it’s one of the few that I actively recommend to people.

They bring in a wide variety of speakers on a whole host of different topics. From parenting to health, to living the life you want in the way you want (my area), to all kinds of other stuff.

Basically, you can’t help but walk away with some amazing new perspectives.

It’s an incredibly inexpensive conference. I keep telling them they should raise the rates because what they deliver is really something special. Way beyond the admission price.

I’ll be speaking four times at the conference on a variety of topics. I look forward to seeing you there!

About the Book:

On a random night, along a forgotten road, John’s life was forever changed when he wandered into a tiny little place known affectionately as-The Why Cafe.

After spending an entire evening there, he walked out with a new perspective about the meaning of life overall, and about his life in particular.

To his great surprise, ten years later, he suddenly finds himself at the cafe once again.

There are more questions on the cafe menu.

Why are you here?    Are you playing in your playground?    Do you have MPO?

Along with new adventures to be had.

And as before, his time at the cafe launches his life in an inspiring and new direction.

Set in the beautiful islands of Hawaii, this follow-up to the #1 Bestseller, The Why Cafe, returns readers to the place where great food, thought provoking questions, and life-changing experiences, are all on the menu.

Settle into a cozy booth by the window, and enjoy your-Return to The Why Cafe.

Why are you here? Looking for help figuring it out?

Are you are at a point in life where you find yourself wondering…Who am I?

and perhaps

Why am I here?

Maybe your life has taken some unexpected turns. A job, relationship, or health change has left you wondering about where the next part of your path lies?

Or perhaps you’ve lived enough of life to have climbed above the noise that engulfs most people’s daily existence. And as you’ve left the noise behind, you’ve discovered within the silence, a deep calling to know and live your true destiny?

If either of those apply to you, then I encourage you to give yourself a gift. The gift of getting clear about who you are and why you are here.

You can view this short video I created to better understand.

The experience is based on the teachings of The Why Cafe, and the Big Five for Life. The Big Five for Life is a concept I introduced in my book following The Why Cafe.

Life is amazing when we become clear.

Your fellow traveler on this amazing adventure called life,


New edition of Big Five for Life is here!

Exciting news, the brand new edition of my third book, The Big Five for Life, has just arrived!

It’s available in gift edition hardcover ($19.95)paperback ($9.97) and e-book on Amazon ($9.97).

If you’ve enjoyed The Why Cafe, and/or my second book, Life Safari, you will love this one. From a writing perspective, I think it’s the best work I’ve done. It’s an inspiring story that will make you laugh, cry, and think about your life in a whole new way.

Glad you enjoyed your time at the Cafe, Doug.

John Quoted in Chicago Tribune – Are you building your ship?

Sometimes in the midst of all the economic and world news you forget just how much you are actually in control of your own destiny.

In this recent article in the Chicago Tribune, John explains that people who are passionate, smart, and able to “get things done” are always able to write their own ticket.

“Clueless Mom” not so clueless anymore

In this recent review, a young mom talks about her positive experience with The Why Cafe.

Here are a couple of highlights.

“It has really caused me to re-examine myself and what I want for my future. It has been a while since a book has done that for me.”

“By the end of the book not only had John learned something about his life, but I had as well.”

Here is a link to the full review.

The Why Cafe called “Great career advice book”

Bud Bilanich, a success coach from Denver, Colorado recently wrote about his experience with The Why Cafe.
