GuruGilbert.com is a top 10 blog?

April 21, 2008          Comments (4)

You never know who is watching you. You never know who is paying attention to you. You never know who is thinking about becoming a client. Ever.

That’s one of the infinite reasons you should always give something your all. If you don’t want to give something 100% then don’t do it anymore. Because, clearly, you don’t love it and life is way too short to not love what you do.

Have you ever had a lot of fun doing something half ass? No.

Because you didn’t want to do it in the first place.

But I know you’ve had a blast doing something you are really proud of and believe in.

I happen to love writing. I’d write this blog if no one read it yet amazing things have happened because of this blog and I’m VERY grateful.

I got this email last night from Jess Neill; someone I have never met nor have ever spoken with:

Hi Adam,

My name is Jess Neill and I really enjoy your blog. I’m an advertising student at the University of Georgia, and I’ve gotten a lot out of your posts.

I am working with Ryan Stephens to create a web page on squidoo.com. It will feature our top 10 blogs that speak to generation y and millennial students and young professionals who are interested in marketing, and we have would like to feature you in our top ten blogs.

We hope that through this page we can connect people to new, relevant blogs and help bring more traffic to great blogs. We would love it if you would mention the lens, as this would help us to start connecting like-minded people, but please know that your position on the lens is not contingent on it. We would also love your opinions, and we are starting a discussion section to feature additional blogs that you feel should be represented on our list.

Here is the url: http://www.squidoo.com/top10genyblogs

After the site gets running, the top 10 positions will be voted on by the viewers of the website, but we think that your blog deserves to be on the inaugural list.

Thank you so much for your time. Please email me back with any questions, comments or concerns.

Thanks, Jess!

So far so good…

This is BIG!

November 29, 2007          Comments (2)

You remember that guy I told you about? Well, he has lost 31 pounds since that post.

How did he do it? The good old fashioned way. No surgery. No pills. No cookie diets. No grapefruit diets. Just by eating healthy meals and exercising CONSISTENTLY!

The problem for most, if not all of us, is that it’s just too easy to make excuses making it almost impossible to stay consistent.

31 pounds! Oh did I mention to you that he is 66 years old!?!?!?

I have helped countless clients lose weight but this one is very special for me. His son, Jason, has been a Godsend. He has referred so many clients to me. When he called to tell me that he really wants me to work my magic on his father and that he was counting on me I wanted to come through in a big way for him.

He is also a true class act. Every month he sends me a check for him and his father. Now, that’s a good guy.

I think it might be time to hire a PR person. This is newsworthy!

Look out for Paul and me on the Today show soon…

I can see it already.

My first EVER fitness video!!!

October 30, 2007          Comments (10)

A few weeks ago I wrote about my experience shooting my first ever fitness video. Well, the wait is over and the video is here!

It’s amazing how professional Conde’ Nast is. This short video took over 2 hours to film. You may think that’s insane but it’s the way it works. When I went to visit the set of the Sopranos we were there for over 9 hours watching the same two scenes being shot over and over. When we watched the episode on TV the scenes we saw being filmed added up to about 3 minutes of screen time.

I love doing the Q&A for Conde’ Nast but there is something about the camera that’s thrilling.

I hope you enjoy watching the video as much as I enjoyed making it!

Check it out here.

Interviewed by Conde’ Nast and I’m now a published man!

July 13, 2007          Comments (4)

I’m very excited to announce that the article I wrote for Millionaire Blueprints has been published in the July/August issue and is now on sale.

You can pick up a copy at most Borders and Barnes & Nobles.

Recently, I was interviewed by Conde’ Nast. My interview is on their company blog and it might also be featured in Self magazine.

As much as I believe in my program, with every molecule in my body, it’s really rewarding to hear other people say such nice things about my program, for which I thank you!

Check out the Conde’ Nast interview here.

And also check out this great article about my program here.

Thank you so much for all of your continued support!

Pretty, pretty, pretty…cool!

When I was working at Ernst & Young recruiters used to call me constantly, promising me my dream job with way more money and better hours.

Blah, blah, blah, blah!

Well, one of those recruiters (this guy happens to be excellent at what he does) called me this morning. I was telling him about my company and the concept behind MyBodyTutor and why it’s so powerful and effective.

25 minutes later he called back and said, “I love it. I want to join your program. I’m sold. This is exactly what I need. Let’s go!”

3 weeks ago, I signed up a client from KPMG, enabling me to say I have clients in all 4 of the Big 4 accounting firms.

Last week, I began working with my second bridezilla (nope, I will not let that happen!) to be.

As of yesterday, I was able to say that I have clients in 3 of the top 5 investment banks.

Pretty, pretty, pretty…cool!

GuruGilbert.com To Have Regular Column in National Magazine!!!

April 25, 2007          Comments (4)


(This is my professionally taken author shot.)

The past few weeks have been absolutely amazing…

It all started with an email from an editor of a national business magazine that I read religiously who miracously came across my blog. Yes. The one you are reading right now. She read it and loved it!

She emailed me and told me to call her.

I called her and we spoke for about 45 minutes and we really hit it off. She asked me to write a story that was “witty, edgy and hip” so, of course, I gave it my best shot.

I sent it to her and she totally loved it.

Long story short, my article is going to be featured in the July issue!

The magazine is called Millionaire Blueprints and is by far one of the best business magazines in my opinion because each article tells you ‘how” the entrepreneur did it step by step not just how “blessed, fortunate and lucky” they are.

The icing on the cake is that they are launching a teen edition and they want me to write a regular column!!! Obviously, I’m extremely excited about this opportunity to have national exposure on a regular basis.

The magazine can be purchased anywhere magazines are sold so check it out in July!

Thank you so much for all of your continued support. Every single one of you who has emailed me, IMed me, whatever; your support really means the world to me!

It’s amazing that I started this blog about 9 months ago. I started this blog because I was writing a newsletter for clients of my old business, Ultimate Discount Card, and the feedback I was getting was very rewarding.

I was encouraged repeatedly to start a blog so I did it and here we are today. I understand your time is precious and extremely limited so I try to make sure each post has some sort of impact on your life; whether it’s humorous, inspirational, educational, etc.

It’s ironic that I when I was younger I hated writing. Now, I realize I hated writing because I wasn’t passionate about the subject. I knew I was onto ‘something’ when my mom, a former English teacher, told me she actually enjoyed my writing.

My mom will never lie to me and always tells me like it is and I thank her for that. She is also my biggest fan. So, as her son is now a real author, I’m sure that has to make a former English teacher pretty darn proud!

I love you mom and Happy Birthday!!!

(I can’t believe you are only 34!)

MyBodyTutor.com launches and doing what you love!

February 5, 2007          Comments (3)

After we all stuffed our faces yesterday (at least I did) the reality of having football as an excuse to not do work has set in. Before you know it summer will be here and we’ll be wearing bathing suits.

But, for many lucky high school and college kids “spring break” is rapidly approaching. But spring break isn’t only for this extremely lucky psychographic. Maybe you are lucky enough to be going away soon too.

When I was in high school and college everyone I knew was intense about how they ate (or didn’t eat) and exercised when spring break was in the air. Once spring break was 6 weeks away…it was on. And for many that procrastinated once 4 weeks hit; it was really on!

It was crazy. Girls weren’t eating, guys weren’t eating and my gym was packed with people that were not usually there.

Starving yourself is not only extremely unhealthy and unsustainable but as soon as you are in paradise and eat normal food your body blows up. When I’m on vacation, I’d rather not worry about what I’m eating and just have the time of my life. Wouldn’t you?

I realized that when I was helping 8 of my friends from around the country get in the best shape of their life what they needed was my knowledge and daily 24/7 support NOT me actually being there with them. I was able to keep my friends on track and they felt compelled to stay on track through our daily phone calls and daily emails/IMs.

My friends all told me it worked so well for them because they knew they had to answer to someone who truly cared about their success who also had the knowledge to help them reach their goal. It’s one thing to make a promise to yourself but when you make a promise to someone else, it’s a lot harder to say, “Screw it!”

There is a better way with my MyBodyTutor.com. In fact, I can 100% guarantee that you will be in the best shape of your life for your spring break (whatever age you are!) or your money back.

Are you ready to learn more?

Go to www.MyBodyTutor.com right now.

I love this business so much because fitness has been a huge part of my life for so long. It’s so easy to do something when you believe in it 1000% and know it works; especially when you are telling authentic stories that anyone I know can attest to.

I won’t lie. I’ve had this idea for a while and a lot of things were holding me back. Mostly fear.

I obviously have to really put myself out there for this one and wasn’t in love with the idea of doing that. Now that I’m AFF, I’m just doing it!

Happy New Year! Plus, BIGGG NEWS that you can’t miss!

January 3, 2007          Comments (5)

It’s 2007! The first post of the new year. A clean, fresh start – for all of us.

Is it me or is time flying by? It’s insane. I can’t believe it’s 2007 already. But, it’s here and we might as well embrace it, in a BIG way!

I’ve been getting emails for the last week asking me what my New Year’s Resolutions are. I figure there is no better place in the world to share them than right here, right now on my blog.

I have one resolution for this year and that’s it. I’m not a big believer in New Year’s resolutions. If I want something bad enough or want to change a habit, why do I have to wait until January 1st?

100% of the time I’m hung over on January 1st. So it doesn’t begin until January 2nd. But then January 2nd doesn’t feel like a good day to start because it’s my first day back to whatever it is I’m doing. I wait. And before you know it, my resolution has dissolved.

What is my New Year’s resolution?

To be AFF!!! That’s right.

What does AFF stand for you wonder?

ABSOLUTELY FUCKIN’ FEARLESS!

(Note to prudes: I apologize for the vulgarity. I tried writing that last sentence without profanity. It just didn’t work and it’s not as catchy.)

What does that mean?

It means going after my dreams. It means not caring at all what other people think. It means taking some risks. It means being absolutely tenacious.

So, in order to uphold my resolution I am leaving Ernst & Young. I put in my two weeks yesterday. It’s quite scary but way more exciting to finally have the opportunity to go after my dreams. Besides, what’s the worst thing that can happen?

Ernst & Young is a great place to work and I learned so much. I now have that credibility that my mom wanted for me so desperately. I did everything I had to do there and now it’s time to move on.

It’s time to go after my dreams and be AFF!!!

I hope you join me on my quest in pursuing a life of passion, purpose and prosperity!

P.S. I’ll need to be AFF this coming Friday. I’m getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed…

[Update: I got my wisdom teeth removed and it was a success.]
