I was already behind schedule. I missed an important deadline for a project that was supposed to be done the night before at 6 PM. Now I was on my way to the gym, already wondering if I would have enough time today to finish what I had been working on all weekend.Going to the gym first thing in the morning has become my regular routine since I moved here to San Diego on March 26, 2013. Every day my daughter, Alexis, aka Lexy, and I go to the gym together. Alexis has been my inspiration, trainer, and peer group when it comes to health and fitness.In the first 90 days since we moved here I lost 42 pounds, going from 229.5 to 187, and having fun doing it!The problem was Alexis had been away for the last 6 weeks in Bali doing a service project at 7 different orphanages. She’s working on a project where we’re going to help sponsor and train the orphanages to be self-sufficient, and work with the children, teaching them life skills and showing them how easy it is for them to be happy no matter what their external circumstances.The reason this was a problem is because when Alexis was away I got off track. I put on 8 pounds in 6 weeks, and I had gotten off our usual schedule of going to the gym every morning.Not today.Today I was determined to go to the gym even if I was behind schedule.Then I made what’s usually a huge mistake. I checked my emails right before I went into the gym.I saw an email from Jessie Schwartzburg. Jessie is the event coordinator for my Mike Koenigs. Mike is the world’s leading expert on video marketing online. Jessie said Mike was doing a special private training the next day and invited me to come.That same morning at a different gym somewhere in San Diego, Alonzo “ActionMF” Jackson was working with one of his clients. The client’s name is Ed Rush. Ed is Mike Koenig’s business partner. Ed invited Alonzo to attend the same private training. It turns out that it was Ed who was going to do 95% of the training over the next three days.Alonzo didn’t get the nickname “Action” for nothing. He immediately cleared his schedule and decided to attend the training.The morning of August 20, 2013, Alonzo and I arrived at the Digital Café training headquarters. As luck would have it, we sat beside each other.By Thursday, after three days of being taught by Mike Koenigs, Ed Rush, Pam Hendrickson, and Jessie Schwartzburg, we were ready to take action. It was then that Alexis decided to stop in at lunch to say hi.By pure coincidence (or maybe not) Alexis had spent one of the weeks in Bali with Mike Koenig’s wife, Vivian. Vivian is the founder of the Just Like My Child Foundation, which does service projects for children in Uganda. It was seeing Vivian at one of Mike’s events that re-inspired Alexis to go to the orphanages in Bali.That’s when Alexis met Alonzo for the first time. It was then that they decided to work together. Alexis had been planning on doing a health and wellness book to distribute to the children in the orphanages. The title she came up with back at the event when she saw Vivian speak was, “Happy Kids, Healthy Kids.”It had now all come full circle. Alexis and Alonzo decided to write this book together because they have three things in common:1) They love to have fun,2) They love life, and3) What they love most is making a difference in other people’s lives, especial
