Alive, Awake and Aware

alive, awake aware cover

Are you alive, awake and aware? Think about it. We hear these words tossed around a lot these days, so much so that we may not think about what they really mean. In this crazy, cyber-driven, fast paced society, it’s easy to become so caught up in “the mental noise within your mind [that]has disallowed you to be aware of its existence until now.” You breathe, you have blood running through your veins and your mind thinks, but are you truly “alive” or are you simply existing? Your eyes are seeing, ears are hearing, legs walking but are you “awake” in the true sense of the word or are you sleep walking your way through life, hardly realizing who you are and what’s going on around you? Christopher Pinckley says, “Your authentic nature is one of a multidimensional, expanded, boundless, limitless, peaceful, loving, and universally intelligent capacity.” Does that describe you? Join us to hear what he has to say about becoming alive, awake and aware.

CEO Perspective: 6 Ways to Become a Stronger Leader

CEO Perspective: 6 Ways to Become a Stronger Leader


Gary Ross was interviewed on the Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations show 0n 7/28/15. As a summery, here are 6 tips to becoming a stronger leader Gary learned from his work as a CEO over the past 16 years, He has served successfully as President/CEO of four different organizations, ranging from $10M to $150M in revenues. He has improved financial performance and value creation within both large public technology and private family companies.

Under his newly formed company, Ross Innovations LLC, Gary has completed successful confidential engagements with CEOs of several software and technology service companies to help them drive specific value-creation initiatives.

Here are Gary’s 6 tips in his own words. Learn more on the recorded show.

1. Evaluate YOU

I took an article that listed the ‘8 Qualities That Make Unforgettable Bosses’ and cross-mapped it against my four President roles – and graded myself from 1-10.  You know what I found?  The roles where I led with passion, I performed the best!

2. Focus on RESULTS

Activity does not equal results.  Focus on accomplishing a lot of goals in a short amount of time.  While at Astute in just under 3 years, we successfully closed on a private equity sale, acquired a company, broke into new international markets, and grew recurring revenue 38% per year!

3. Be creative and open to new IDEAS

Get to know your customers and how you can help them succeed.  Get to know the market you are in and look for other markets to target.  Listen to your associates ideas.  I developed the Growth Cube TM strategic planning tool as a new and innovative way to unlock the growth within companies!

4. Stand for something personally – BEYOND CEO

I am a family man, a man of faith and overall continue to push myself to be a better man.  I work with others on how to increase their Personal Value.  I speak to groups on ‘How to Overcome Major Life Challenges!’ where I give specific tips on how to strengthen yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually!


I believe my role as the CEO is to set the direction, make sure we achieve our company goals, increase the speed with which we operate, and in general function as the organization spark plug!

6. SYNCH UP your Financial model and your Leadership model

To get growth, we need to build a growth culture.  I accomplish this by implementing the inverted pyramid.  This is designed to focus the organization on the customer at the top of the inverted pyramid (Raving Customers) and those who support the customer (Raving Associates).

AeroMobil could be lifting off commercially in 2017, says CEO Juraj Vaculik

AeroMobil could be lifting off commercially in 2017, says CEO Juraj Vaculik


AeroMobil could be lifting off commercially in 2017, says CEO Juraj Vaculik

by American sociobiologist, Rebecca D. Costa
It’s closer than you think.  By 2017 drivers may be pulling off the freeway, accelerating for 100 yards, lifting off, and flying above the traffic below.

Though the idea of a flying car has been around since 1903, when the first patent was filed, it wasn’t until two men who lived under communist-ruled Slovakia joined forces that it became a commercial reality.  According to Juraj Vaculik, co-founder and CEO of AeroMobil, “All of us were dreaming of a way to escape to the free world, to be able to travel without limits – without borders.”  He continued, ” … these things were, of course, prohibited by the government, so the possibility of becoming a private entrepreneur, and the possibility to travel free, was created by the ‘Velvet Revolution.'”

The 1989 “Velvet Revolution” was a peaceful protest that brought an end to 41 years of communist rule in Slovakia – an event which opened door for Vaculik and co-founder and chief designer, Stefan Klein, to pursue their vision of a flying car.  Their first prototype, AeroMobil 1.0, was born a year later, bringing 25 years of secretly tinkering in a garage to fruition.

The newest prototype, AeroMobil 3.0 lifted off in October 2014 at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna, Austria. The two-seat “roadster” is under 20 feet in length, with wings that fold in for driving, and open and extend to a wingspan of approximately 27 feet for flight. To get airborne, the AeroMobil requires a space the size of an American football field.  Its top flight speed is 124 mph and it has a maximum range of 435 miles.

Though the AeroMobil engine uses regular gasoline — the kind sold at any gas station –- it can hardly be called fuel-efficient: 31 miles per gallon on the road and 4 gallons per hour in the air. Future versions are expected to do much better. A hybrid AeroMobil — electric on the ground, internal combustion in the air — is already in development. “It’s very important to us that it will be very environmentally friendly in every possible way,” Vaculik said.

According to Klein and Vaculik, the reason a flying car has been over a hundred years in the making is because the two modes of transportation operate on opposite principles: airplanes rely on “lift,” and automobiles require downward energy to perform. “It was difficult to combine different specifications and needs for the plane and the car,” Vaculik admitted. AeroMobil’s solution?  Rather than a compromised driving and flying experience, the vehicle switches “modes” between driving and flying. Likewise, the driver behind the controls of an AeroMobil must have both a driver’s license and a private pilot’s license.

Commercial units of the AeroMobil are targeted to hit the market in 2017, and are expected to be priced similar to a high-end luxury automobile or light planes. As production ramps up, future versions are expected to be more affordable.  “This technology will revolutionize future transportation,” concluded Vaculik.
