The Michigan ~ California Connection

Watch the video of my journey across America >>>> The Michigan ~ California Connection.

Check out a video I made showcasing what can be seen when traveling from the East Coast (Detroit, Michigan) all the way to the West Coast (San Diego, California).

I wanted to take the most scenic route and see everything that I truly wanted to see, places that I felt would be desirable to the majority of the population.

The route I chose to reach Southern California would showcase the amazing change in environments that the United States has when moving across from one end to the other.  marketing consultant in San Diego

Its very complex and diverse as you travel from the East to the West of the United States.  Seeing the great differences there are throughout this country and the different opportunities each state has to offer was a great experience for me to witness.  The travels helped to open my eyes and mind, so if you wish to watch the video from my travels it may also help open or re-focus your eyes and mind to the world that’s out there.

Life Lesson 1: Believing is EVERYTHING

Life Lesson 1 - Believing is everything

Life Lesson 1 – Believing is everything

  1. You must have a visual goal, both mentally and physically when you seek a specific desired outcome or in other words a desired GOAL or DREAM.

Keeping frequent visual reminders close to you will keep yourself accountable to the fact that you need to constantly be working towards this goal.

Displaying a picture of what your final desired outcome or state may look, feel or sound to yourself is one way to do this.

  • What I Did:  After visiting and verifying with myself that this was the dream I seek.  I ripped out a map of where I wanted to find myself.  Desired was a fulfilling life living in Southern California.  The above image of SoCal was pinned up on my wall in my room since late August 2011.  The image was not removed until the last 5 minutes before driving off from the house in Michigan that I have lived all my 25 years of life in.

So here I am now, a man living in a new environment.  Since day one I imagined and convinced myself that I am living in California and the dream has already came true.  My pinned up map of Southern California in my room would be a source of encouragement and would also be used as a GREAT tool to really help me realize and focus on what I truly wanted each and every day no matter my mood or speculation.

Great Example of an Innovative Method of Providing EXCELLENT Customer Convenience:

INNOVATIVE TOOL USED: QR Codes

WHERE: Shopping Mall – Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, Michigan

WHAT: the new Movie Mall feature I witnessed while shopping at the mall. There’s a big displayed featured across a large span of a wall in the mall, about the length of a typical stores entrance in the mall. Nicely displayed images of featured current hit movies with a large QR Code draws viewers attention very easily. You scan the QR Code associated with what movie you want and then that movie or show will be available for you to watch at the convenience of your own house. There tagline pretty much sums it up…

STOP. SCAN. SHOP.

This new feature of renting movies and tv shows (both new and old movies) while you are already out shopping at the mall provides a one stop shop for consumers leading to more time spent inside the mall.
