Welcome To My Website

You'll quickly notice that passion oozes from my pores. I love the life I've created. And launching this site is my way of sharing with the world many of the lessons I've learned that has enabled me to flourish.


The hardest part is believing in yourself when no one else does.


A smiling face does not always signify the absence of problems, sometimes it signifies the ability to deal with them.

Nerissa & Jeremy

There is only one happiness in life - to love and to be loved.

About Me

What makes me different is my drive. I don’t quit when I get tired; I quit when I get done. What makes me tick is my heart (no pun intended). Passion plays a vital role in my ability to make a difference in this world. What makes me strong is my past. Many people have had to face adversity, but overcoming the obstacles I’ve had to has created my best characteristic: Resilience.

Les Brown once told a friend of mine (Jonathan de la Garza), “You tell Jeremy McGilvrey that he has greatness inside of him.” These words have continued to inspire me. They’ve inspired me to pick myself up after continuously getting knocked down. And they have helped me to believe in myself when no one else did. Something else I’ve leaned from Les Brown is that once you stop fighting for what you want, what you don’t want will automatically take over.

My Top 3 Goals

Become a Bestselling Author

For too many years I’ve struggled with finishing my first book. The problem is that I have so many ideas. This has prevented me from completing the project at hand. I’m sure my ADHD can be partical to blame. Because at times it seems like someone has the remote control to my brain and they keep changing the channel. However, I’ve finally put a “Mind Map” into place for the completion of: 7 Secrets Guaranteed To Skyrocket Your Success which will be a bestseller in January of 2017.

Create a Business Bootcamp

Too many business owners don’t know what they don’t know. And what you don’t know can (and will) hurt you. Helping business owners get crystal clear about who their ideal customer is, and creating a sequence of events to earn that customers business is something I have a gift to do. I enjoy outlining the steps a business must take in order to ensure profitability.

January 9th of 2017 I will be hosting my 4th Business Bootcamp. You can find it on Meetup.com. I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Rejuvenating the Mastermind Principle

Napoleon Hill once said: “You can accomplish more in one year by being involved in a mastermind group then you could in a lifetime not being involved in a mastermind group.” I attribute much of my success to collaborating and synergizing with others. I learned a long time ago 1 + 1 = 3, and that the best ideas come when evolved from a group of like-minded people. You can learn more about my mastermind ambitions at: SAmastermind.com.

My Philosophy

You are 100-percent responsible for your life and the results you have produced up until now. Want different results? Have the courage to make different decisions. Because nothing changes...if nothing changes.


Silicon Valley's mantra: Fail early. Fail fast. Fail often. Fail better. Fail forward.

Failure plays an important role in our success. Personally, I believe we need to learn to embrace failure, we need to see failure as a sign that we tried. Too many people allow their failure's to define them. They do this because they give up to soon. Always remember: Failure is an event, not a person.


True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less.

I love that saying. Why? Because unfortunately, the more successful we become, the more we allow our egos to take over. This is a mistake. And it can lead to: How the Mighty Fall. Understand this: An inflated-ego can be easy to rationalize, but difficult to recognize. That's why it's crucial to find ways to check yourself.


What do successful people and unsuccessful people have in common?

Answer: They both hate to do what it takes to succeed. But successful people have the discipline to do it anyway. I once heard that self-discipline is when we tell ourselves what to do and we don't talk back. Making ourselves do the things that makes us feel uncomfortable is one of the keys to our success.


“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.”

Charles Swindoll

My Favorite Books

The secrets to success have been written in countless books. However, very few people take the time to read them. Understandably, finding time to read Tony Robbins 700-plus page tome Money: Mastery the Game can be difficult, but that's why audio books were created. Never underestimate the power of Automobile University.

Facts About Me

My faith has gotten me through some very difficult times. I cannot imagine how people deal with life's struggles without Jesus to lean on. My military background has given me the discipline to ensure I get the small things right so the big things can fall into place. My entrepreneur spirit has kept me focused and allowed me to live the life many people only dream of. My writing has given me the opportunity to express myself and share my thoughts with people around the world.
