IGNITE – A little book to spark YOUR big dreams.

BACK IN 2007

I’ll never forget it.

Back in 2007, I was standing with a group of friends and volunteers and we were looking at all of the dream sheets that were on the walls after our second BIG Dream Gathering.


We were all tired but we were also blown away by the sheer number of pieces of colored paper that were taped to the walls… each one representing a person’s dream, goal or aspiration!

At that point, a friend leaned over and whispered, “Now you need to write a book to help these people actually achieve these dreams.”

I’ll admit that it surprised me a bit.

I knew people needed help, but I still felt pretty ill-equipped to write a book to help them!

At the same time… that idea got planted like a seed in the soil of my brain.

And… it started to take root and grow.

So… over the past few years… I’ve been wildly blessed to

  • get to see thousands of people attend our free BIG dream gatherings…
  • coach hundreds of people one-on-one…
  • help organizations to think bigger and get more done…

And all of these experiences have been an AMAZING laboratory that has enabled me to experiment with ideas to help people to dream bigger and achieve more!

And most importantly… it’s all helped me to boil things down and develop some exceedingly simple… but surprisingly powerful tools that real people can use to go after their own big dreams!


So… now it’s May of 2011, and I’m freakishly excited to announce that “IGNITE! A little book to spark your big dreams” is available!

That’s right.

That seed that got planted back in 2007, has grown into something much bigger and better than I’d ever hoped it could!



Well, I have been able to partner with the visual author, biz-visionary and friend, Jocelyn Wallace. And she has made IGNITE… not just a book, but it’s now, what I like to call “a reading experience!”


She took my series of short stories, strategies, and questions and created original photography to enhance your experience as you dive into the book.

Plus… Jocelyn had the brilliant idea of including some of my amazing wife’s original artwork in the book! So, Melissa’s inspiring brush strokes will help you to dream a little bigger too!


Over these past few years of working and connecting with YOU… we know that YOU’RE BUSY!

And even though you want to pursue your BIG dreams… you don’t always have a lot of time to do it!

So you can’t take time to read a 400-page book on how to make it happen!

And that’s why we kept ourselves to 117 idea-poppin’, action-inspirin’, connection-infusin’ pages!



And as we like to say… when you’re done reading IGNITE… you’ll have a smile on your face and a plan in your back pocket!

So… if your BIG dream needs a little spark… or you want to ignite someone else’s big dreams… we invite you to grab a copy (or two!) by clicking here!

And thanks for helping us to spread the word too!

You know that we’re on a mission to help launch a million dreams… and we’re hoping this will help us all to do it!

Keep dreaming BIG,

    This book looks like a treasure of a resource. Think of all the stuff we spend money on w/o a 2nd thought! This will be worth it, many many times over!

    Thanks Della, for introducing me to BDG! (Thanks Ken, for introducing me to Della!)
