Thank you for requesting this two-part audio series which will be in your inbox shortly. But before you close this page, may I ask you one question? 

Is your MIND being infected by the coronavirus?

Since mid-March and the first use of the term “pandemic,” a seismic shift has occurred in the way we live.

And as a result, a pandemic of a much more sinister nature is taking its toll.

This pandemic is even more infectious and life-threatening than COVID, because this virus attacks your mind.

It causes you to suffer mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, making you feel hopeless, fearful, anxious, unhappy, and unable to sleep. 


Symptoms that your mind may be infected by this virus:

  • feelings of overwhelm
  • difficulty concentrating
  • fearfulness
  • sleep problems
  • fear of losing control
  • despair or depression
  • anxiety
  • hopelessness
  • increased alcohol or drug use
  • grief
  • alarmist thinking
  • panic
  • irritability
  • stress
  • difficulty functioning as normal
  • sadness
  • dread
  • worry
  • anger
  • physiological changes (like sweating, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, increased heart rate)

You shouldn’t be surprised if you;re experiencing a number of these symptoms. Why?

Because almost every day you hear another story about a family losing a loved one, another business going under, another unemployment statistic, another “hotspot.”

You can’t get away from it.  

But the problem is your mind then takes all this bad news to fuel your own fears and worries and anxieties about how you will manage if this happens to you.

So, how do we disinfect – and then safeguard – our mind, when this is our life right now?

It can be done, even in the middle of a pandemic.

Because while we have limited control over whether we will physically contract the virus, we have near total control over how much we allow it to affect our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, behavior, and outlook.

Which means you can stop worrying. You can quit being fearful. You can get through your days – and nights – without being crippled with anxiety.

You can do all this as long as you have these two things:
the WILL and the SKILL

Think about something you absolutely cannot do that other people can. Maybe it’s wiring the electrical system in your home or writing the code for a computer program.

The only reason you can’t do this as well (or better than) someone else is because you haven’t cared enough (the will) to develop the skill to learn how. I believe you could, though, if you focused on learning that skill. And that same principle applies here.

If you care enough about your mental, emotional, and spiritual health to take the time to learn a few basic but essential mind skills, you can rid yourself of fear (others have). You can master your anxiety (others have). You can stop worrying (others have). You can sleep again . . . 

. . . and, more importantly, you can regain hope that life is goodeven now.

The fact that your mind controls your thoughts, which in turn control your emotions, your behavior, your outlook, and even over time your physical health, is a fact worth caring about! So what you are allowing your mind to do now is determining whether this crisis is wearing you down or making you stronger. 

What if you decided to use this pandemic as a catalyst – a time when you learn simple mind tools and gain expertise over your mental and emotional well-being that result in immediate and positive differences in every area of your life? 

You CAN do that very thing . . . provided you know how. 

And that’s where we come in.

By capitalizing on the strengths within you instead of the trouble around you, we help you fortify yourself against life’s unknowns

I’ve devoted the past 30 years of my life researching, writing about, and helping my clients overcome mental and emotional challenges. 

And in that length of time I’ve developed an actionable toolbox of effective mind skills that help my clients go from a place of fear, worry, anxiety, hopelessness, and helplessness to a place of peace, calm, hope, and personal power. 

And I’d like to share these very same tools with you.


Because I know they will help you use this crisis as an opportunity to become mentally and emotionally strong and confident, capable of rising above anything life throws at you — both now and later. (I’m sure you’ll agree that this coronacrisis will certainly not be the last challenge you face!) 

Here’s how it works . . .

Membership in our GROtogether community gives you access to everything you need to build up your own toolbox of mind skills. 

But you don’t only get the tools. I also show you how to use them to your best benefit. 

Using these tools you will be able to protect your mind and guard your heart from an overwhelming sense of fear, dread, and worry. 

These powerful and yet easy-to-use aids show you how to stay in the present instead of projecting into the futurewhich always leads to anxiety. They help you develop mental and emotional strength. They bring you peace.

Your most powerful asset is your good mind. But you have to know how to use it to your benefit . . . or you’re no better off. And the funny thing about the mind is that if you don’t control it, it will control you.

GROtogether Membership equips you with everything you need to be able to use your most powerful asset to your best advantage – both now . . . and from now on.

And one of the greatest secondary benefits of membership is that once you fill your toolbox with these mind/life skills, you can share them with your children! You will at once know how to deal with your anxiety (for example) . . . and theirs . . . in a way that will serve them for life

You can join us with confidence, knowing that you are aligning yourself with credentialed professionals who have been in private practice for 30 years doing one thing — helping people resolve crises and overcome challenges

Why Membership?

Wanna know why you keep battling the same problems month after month?

Or why you’re great at setting goals . . . but never reaching them?

Or why “self-improvement” sounds like a great idea but never seems to work?

I’ll tell you why.

(Having spent a lifetime in the personal development space – working through my own issues and helping others do the same – I feel qualified to answer these questions.)

I believe there are two primary reasons:

1) We don’t know how to fix what’s wrong

2) We don’t commit to the process

GROtogether Membership addresses both of these at once.

You commit to the process . . . and we will show you how to fix what you want fixed.

Three times a week — on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday — we deliver one tool, one technique, or one insight for you to integrate and work on that has been specifically designed to make a positive difference in how you feel about yourself, your life, your challenges, your opportunities, and your future. 

Doing it this way allows you to naturally and easily build your own toolbox of mind skills over time, so that no matter what happensnow or later — you have everything you need to face life with courage, confidence, wisdom, and strength.   

Your Mind Tools will be delivered in one of the following ways:

Specifically . . . 

Three times a week — like clockwork — for the duration of the coronacrisis (or as long as you are a member) an email with a link to a powerful mind tool is delivered to your inbox. 

This is like having a personal “mind trainer” visit you three times a week at your convenience to deliver a dynamic yet simple-to-use piece of equipment that is guaranteed to strengthen you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. 

This means you don’t have to go out of your way to schedule time with a professional counselor or coach — because you’ll have one in-house

I don’t need to tell you that anything you want out of life that’s worth having is worth your commitment. But with membership, we make it as simple and as straightforward as we can. As long as you keep showing up and following our lead, in time you will experience some amazing benefits. 

So, to sum it all up . . . 

GROtogether Membership:

connects subscribers to ongoing professional support in the form of targeted emails, podcasts, and group coaching calls specifically created to address challenges associated with the coronacrisis. 

AND as an added bonus —

Get access to GROtogether Membership and start building your own toolbox of mind skills today for just —

$97 per month

How do I become a member?

To get started all we need is your first and last name, preferred email address and first month’s subscription. 

As soon as your membership is processed, you will be directed to create your own unique link to the member portal where you’ll find a welcome message from us . . . as well as a new member gift.

For your convenience, from that point your account will be automatically billed $97 each month from the day you join and until you cancel — or until we are on the other side of this challenge and we shut the program down. 

Of course, you are not obligated in any way to continue after the first month if you choose not to. You have complete control over your membership from inside your member portal and are free to cancel at any time. 

It is essential that we control our mind in this or any crisis, because the saying is true: “The seeds of fear, once they are sown, will grow in the imagination.”

You have the power to overcome your fear. You have the power to conquer your anxiety. You have the power to quit stressing out and worrying yourself to death about what might happen. 

But only if you know how . . . 

Instead of wasting all that valuable time and energy, put them both to good use by getting your magnificent mind in the best shape possible so it can serve you well the rest of your life.

GROtogether Membership equips you for the unknown by empowering you to control what controls you — your mind

If the coronacrisis has you feeling like this on the inside, let us help. 

And if you don’t believe that GROtogether Membership is something you need right now, be assured that we are here if you change your mind. A link to join will be included in the email that delivers your free two-part anxiety audio series to you.

Be safe, be well, be strong . . . and guard your mind.
