    Where is the PDF worksheet? Don’t see it below the video or anywhere?

    John – do you see the graphic below the video, where it says “Download Free Assessment”? It isn’t showing up on Chrome (I don’t know why), but check again. At least there should be a link now.

    I just watched your first video. Being a buddhist and an artist myself, aside from my role in lead gen/inside sales at Nearsoft, I look forward to reading and viewing more of the information you provide. Thanks.

  3. Happy New Year for 2013, Aaron

    I’ve just discovered you and your Unique Genius today. What a great gift that Santa left on the web a Christmas or two ago and what a treasure to find you today!

    Your information is exactly what I’m looking for – almost eerily apropos for what I’m doing now.

    This video is priceless. Your two life-changing questions and this series should be gifted to every graduating senior and university student. This is such welcome approach to business and life planning. Your results and achievements vouch for the authentic, proven advice you provide.

    Can’t wait to watch the rest of your videos.

    Congratulations on such superior presentation!

    Thanks so very much

    I have a new project that I just started working on a couple of weeks ago. While trying to come up with a name for the LLC my business partner and I recently formed the name “Unique Genius” seemed perfect. I liked the name so much I decided to keep it for my own web design portfolio.

    This morning when I searched the domain I landed on your page (nice SEO).

    At first I thought wow, what a waste of space! I wanted this domain name and here this guy is parked here to sell self-help books or make money from home pamphlets! I was certain that the instant I entered my e-mail address that I just initiated the eternal relationship between your spamming server and my inbox.

    Curiosity got the best of me so I entered a fake name and a spam account address.

    I’ve been in sales my entire career after the USMC. The last 4 years of my life have been spent in the top 10 percentile of a Fortune 500 company and spearheading our social media initiative. In addition to working full-time (45hrs/wk) I am a full-time college student and a freelance web designer/developer. In spite of how proud I am of my success and how others view me because of it, I find myself feeling trapped, anxious, frustrated, and depressed. I do not love what I do and I’m tired of making random stakeholders rich who couldn’t care less about me.

    My reasons for not doing what I truly want to do are:

    Not enough money.
    Not enough time.
    Afraid to change my standard of living that comes with a lower salary.
    Fear of unknown – working up through the ranks AGAIN.

    On Friday before the holiday break I was put on paid administrative leave. I was shocked! How could the company I’ve poured my blood and sweat into and made so much money discard me this way? As devastating as this was to me, I knew that this was the universes aligning me with my true purpose. I felt it was the push from my nest that I was too comfortable to leave on my own. I even had a strong sense of deja vu or like the remembering of a dream I had of that exact moment. I am still a little bit scared but also very excited and feeling alive for the first time in ages.

    Thank you for offering these videos free of charge. I’ve had Unique Genius on my mind for weeks and finding your site has just confirmed to me that I am on the right path. I’m not a member of any religious group and in my past have prayed in vain for an answer to my questions and maybe I wasn’t asking the right ones, but I also wasn’t able to recognize the answers. After coming up with these exact words for my own project in the midst of this chaotic time in my career and finding your website, I believe if there is such a thing as an answer from a higher power that I ever received, it is this.

    Thank you,

    Cindy Marie Silva

    Hey Cindy,

    Sorry for the slow reply 🙂 I missed your comment in the mix of a flurry of spam comments that came in. Thanks so much for your comment, and I’m really glad you’re getting so much from the site and videos. Have you been through them all yet?

    I’m sorry your company’s treating you this way. Sometimes circumstances conspire to push us forward earlier than we feel ready for. If you get through the videos and then want to take our “Light Your Fire” course for free, email me and I’ll hook you up!

    Good luck with your projects, and keep up the baby steps,

    Hi Aaron!!
    Your work is amazing!!
    I´m working right now with very similar issues and would love to translate your material to Spanish. Do you think I could use it? of course that I would mention you are the author, your website and the links to your videos. I live some months in Islas Canarias (Spain) and other months in Montevideo, Uruguay, South America and unfortunately many people don´t understand English so they can´t access to such a inspirational articles and videos.
    I´m sure there´s a lot to give through this vision of the meaning of our works and lives. We really need to learn how to live our lives in a creative and fulfilling way and I am sure your work could be of great help where I live and also to the latin community through a Spanish web.
    Many thanks for all you are giving ..
    With love

    Hi there – Looks like we are asking the same questions.

  7. Lesley Young says:

    Your Unique Genius spoke to me. I am at a cross roads in my career. I have the opportunity to really think about my next step and answer the hard question “What do I want to do with my life?” The questions you ask have really helped me organize my thought process. Thank You!
