ALS #IceBucketChallenge – WinWithFred

#icebucketchallenge to ice ALS for Good!

My son Chase was nominated to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I am extremely proud of him that he went through with it because it is an extremely good cause to help others. The point behind the ALS Challenge is to nominate someone to pour a bucket of ice over their head and then they donate $10 to ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. They have 24 hours to complete the challenge. If they fail to complete the #icebucketchallenge than they have to donate $100 to ALS.

The point behind pouring a bucket of ice on your head is because people with ALS feel the same way you will feel when ice is dumped on your head, and that is a chilling fact!

Make it something that is not over saturated. This is a tricky one because I would never want to tell someone they cant do something because a niche is over saturated. If you…

Essence and Identity Episode #34


This is a very important topic for me. I discuss the importance of realizing the difference between essence and identity.

If we had to walk around with name tags that described not how we saw ourselves, but how others viewed us it would be an extreme eye opener.

Identity is how we are seen by others. At one point in my life my identity was a great service advisor in the automobile industry. The truth being that I don’t even like cars and had no passion for the business. 17 years I stayed in the same business. Get up, go to work, make a good wage and go home. I was comfortable, my family was comfortable.

Wealthy Affiliate University, My #1 Choice and Why.

I am going to take you back to when yours truly first started. I was a complete newbie, fresh from 17 years in the automotive industry.
