Who Is Giving You Advice?

Who do you take advice from on a day-to-day basis? Everyday I speak with people who seem to be taking advice, directions, tips from other people who are broke, out of shape,  in terrible relationships.

I have learned that to be the best in certain areas in your life you have to have a coach and/or mentor. Micheal Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods,  they all have coaches and they are the best in the world.

I remember, many years ago a mentor of mine and now a very good friend told me before you ask for advice about any subject make sure that the person you are asking has accomplished what you want.

He also told me that your income will be the average of the five people you hang out with the most.  At that time in my life, my income was extremly low.  What wasn’t funny he didn’t know that two of people I spent alot of time were unemployed.Dsc00258_3

He was my very 1st mentor I ever had, he is now my good friend and mentor, Art Jonak (www.mlmplayer.com). Art and is beautiful wife, Ann both where here for my wedding.

Art probably has had the biggest influence in my personal and professional life. We have been friends for almost 12 years now! Thank you Art for everything.

Some of my coaches are Art Jonak (www.mlmplayers.com ), Scott Tucker ( www.mortgagemarketinggenius.com ) , Dan Kennedy (www.dankennedy.com ) , Brian Sacks ( www.loanofficersuccess.com ), Cory Rudl (www.marketingtips.com ), Joe Vitale (www.mrfire.com),  Micheal Mack (www.TheCreditMan.com), Jim Rohn (www.JimRohn.com)

Right now I am searching for a new coach to help me in my desire to get in better shape (this has been a goal for some many years)!

Who are you taking advice from?

Your friend,

Have you met my family?

It’s a beautiful crips Saturday morning here in Redlands. I came into the office this morning to meet a client who was having credit challenges and trying to reduce his monthly debt, he saw my website…www.carlossamaniego.com, looks like we can help save him $400 a month!

I found a picture from my son Andrew’s birthday party back in July. Ithought I introduce you to Drewlizcarlosbday_1 Andrew and Elizabeth.

It was a really warm day. We had a blast though, Andrew had about 15 friends at park and rest of family.

Rocky We Miss You!!

Dsc01307I recently had someone who was part of my life for over 13 years and lost him to cancer back in September. His name was Rocky. He was an American Eskimo.

He was my best friend for many years. I miss him.

Just this side of heaven is a place called:

Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…

Carlos Wedding Pictures

Many of you have asked me if we had any pictures to share from our wedding. Many of you know me and Elizabeth got married November 26, 2005 on the Yacht “Destiny” in Newport Beach, California.

We had about 130 very close friends and family join us coming from all over the country.

I posted a couple pictures from the wedding in the photo album. I hope you enjoy them.

I hope they don’t drop my new wife 🙂
