My Journey to one of the busiest Months

It is rare that I cancel any of my appointments, but today there was no way I could go to my meeting at 1PM. I called my friend and asked him if we could reschedule for next week. I was so exhausted. Luckily, my friend agreed to my request, and I went straight back to sleep.

I had numerous meetings and commitments last week, but nothing compares to what is coming up this week. Let's see. A General Assembly of our non-profit organization this Monday, then a few meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday, a three hour workshop that I am conducting on Thursday after a meeting, Friday I will be in Buffalo to host a book launch, Saturday morning I will be heading to Ottawa for a basketball game (we are having our own play offs lol), and then I will be back in Toronto on Sunday...(my theory is that when I am busy, I don't have time to sin. So, I will definitely go to heaven).

I am both busy and exited. Being part the Goal Achievers Group has brought me to heights that I have never been to before (or you can use "that I have never experienced". These guys are serious players on the market place. Just a few weeks ago, we had an idea of putting together an event on May 7, and before we got home, the website was already done. Are you serious??!!! (did you check yet?)

Before we took our breath, another guy came back with two HUGE pieces of good news. The first one, is... (I am holding my breath here), the great Gerry Robert is coming to speak at our event. Are you kidding??!!! Do you mean, I will be sharing the stage with Gerry Robert? This time I won't be the one signing autographs, I will be the one chasing autographs. I was so excited when I heard the news man!

I have seen Gerry once on stage with Bob Proctor, and now not only am I meeting him, but I will be speaking on stage with him!!!

Gerry Robert brought himself out of poverty to earning over $1 Million in a single year. Now he's a mentor to some of the highest income earners in numerous industries. He is a bestselling author, columnist, speaker and consultant operating throughout North America and Asia. Gerry has spoken to over 3 Million people from around the world (I am not speaking about me here. I am not there yet lol).

Do you remember that I told you that there was two pieces of good news? You will be excited when I tell you this one. OK, take a few minutes, relax a bit and come back when you are ready to hear this. I will be here waiting for you when you return...

OK, now that you came back ready to hear the news, I am going to give it to you. I have a couple of FREE tickets to give away (shhh!! Please don't tell everybody). Yes. You got it right. We have been able to secure a sponsor who agreed to pay for 50 people at the May 7 event. I am one of the speakers, so I am holding a few tickets (I won't tell you how many) worth $299 each. Since you are reading my blog, you are the chosen ones (I have another chosen one who is in Kigali, but that is another story lol). Just e-mail me at, and I can reserve a seat for you (first come first serve as the tickets are limited). You will have a day that you will never forget. You will finally get to see me do my thing on stage (please don't say that you will only come because of Gerry Robert).

Before I let you go, I have to tell you that I had such a humbling experience yesterday. For those who don't know, I am heading to Burundi this coming June for my wedding (to the same wife I married in December lol). This time it is the religious wedding where family and friends will be gathered to celebrate with us (William and Kate? Lol).

A couple of friends came together and put together a fund raising event for my trip and the community responded in ways that brought tears in my eyes. Thank you guys. What a great tradition we have!

Moral of the story? Do you want to attend a great meeting for free, just e-mail me and you will be chasing autographs. But this time it won't me mine.

Always a pleasure

My Journey with Fidèle

It has been quite a few busy weeks that involved a round trip to Ottawa on Saturday and preaching during a Sunday church service (yes, I was surprised too when I was asked to do it). All this time I was thinking about what I would be writing about on this week’s blog. I had a vague idea, but I did not know how to formulate it.
That was until I received a message on Facebook from a friend asking me to speak at an upcoming event in January. The topic of my presentation would be “The Moment that Defined Your Life”. The person who sent me the invitation did not know that I had been thinking about the same topic days prior to her message.
It all started when I was at a Toronto Raptors game. I have been reporting on the games for almost two months now, but I am still in awe every time I am at the arena. I can’t believe this is happening to me. I have been in rooms with childhood idols, biggest stars of the game, coaches, reporters, you name it. And every time I am saying “wow”. The other day,…

My Journey with a man of faith

Many years ago, I heard a businessman say that if you don’t have a dream, be around dreamers. Now, I am going to add to his statement and say that if you don’t have faith, be around people of faith.
I met this gentleman over sixteen years ago when I first came to Canada. After a few months, we became roommates. It was very fun evenings among friends hearing and telling funny jokes. We didn’t know what we would become later, but I knew this guy was going somewhere. He was a devoted Christian man, playing music in two different churches. He had a picture in his room with a huge crowd on it and I knew he was meant to impact people’s lives. Little did I know I would be, many years later among the people who would be impacted by his life.
We went our separate ways but kept in touch. He later became a Pastor (and I was not surprised at all by that), and I attended his church a few times.
In 2013, I was going through one of the toughest moments of my life and I needed help. I didn’t know wh…

My Journey to the Book

It has been quite overwhelming the last few days
I shared the link to my book to a few friends and the response has been a shock to me. The support has been unbelievable. All the comments are quite similar to this message that I received from a friend who has been more than a brother to me. Those of us who know him back in the day, we call him Kissa.
He wrote:
Hello bro I finally got a chance to watch the video. And I have 2 conflicting reactions: 1) what a powerful and incredible story man. It is amazing. I would love to rush put in on my facebook and twitter account for everybody to learn from you. How can I pay to order an autographed book? 2) I am also angry against you man. I was supposed to be your brother and friend. You could have asked me for a little help. Instead of living the fight alone. I hope one of the lessons learned in your journey would also be: Know your friends In any case, bravo and can't tell how much I respect you and I am proud of you Cheers
This message gave m…
