I got a call the other day from my great friend and mentor Gary W. Goldtein. Gary was extremely excited about a talk he is about to give in Redwood City.

Now Gary gets to speak at many events and lately he has really cut back on speaking since Gary is very busy with his consulting business.

Anyway, when Gary gets excited I listen. He went on to explain who he was speaking with and about what they were doing together.

I understood immediately why he was so excited. He would be speaking with two extreme consultants in business about a new program they would provide this next year called Innerfluence which is a one year, very intimate coaching program for a very small and unique set of business people.- JW

Tom Bähler Famed Music Composer Turned Author

Tom BahlerFamed Composer Tom Bähler on His New Book “Anything is Possible; a Tale of Aesop”

He has also composed the music to a number of other movies and scored a number of soundtracks.

And now Tom Bahler has written a fascinating fictional account of the life of the famed creator of Aesop’s Fables, a brilliant storyteller and eternal optimist who lived around 600 BCE. Tom joins us while speaking at Author 101 to talk about his new book and his new journey writing.

I love to interview authors because they are often great story tellers and they have rather interesting lives.

Tom Bähler is absolutely no exception. He has one of the most interesting stories you will run across.

Tom is a fun guy, who really likes people and loves to share his story and it was so fun getting to talk with him. Rick Frishman pops in at the end of the interview and we all have a great time.

Thank you Tom for gracefully giving your time, as you were quite popular and busy at the conference and thanks to Rick Frishman for such a great conference that attracts such great people like Tom – JW

Tom Bahler Anything is Possible - Order NowThe Book

Anything Is Possible; A Tale of ÆSOP

Anything Is Possible, Illustrated edition, an original novel by Thomas Bähler is a thought-provoking modern treasure, a fascinating fictional account of the life of the famed creator of Aesop’s Fables, a brilliant storyteller and eternal optimist who lived around 600 BCE.

The life of the great philosopher and teacher Æsop is explored for the first time ever in a brilliantly crafted historical fiction illuminated by fifty full page illustrations .

The novel begins with Aesop’s birth as a slave, covers his long quest for freedom and examines his service to the richest and most powerful man in the world.

Many would be surprised to know that Æsop, an enduring philosopher in the modern world, was born a slave. Yet, later in life, he served as Ambassador to the wealthiest King in ancient history, simply with a fierce belief in his own potential, and the ever-stalwart laws of reality…anything is possible.

Today, Æsop and his fables are quoted an estimated one million times daily, across the globe. Not bad for someone who lived 2600 years ago.

Written with the same simple genius as its central protagonist, in Anything Is Possible, the reader discovers the meaning of Æsop’s profound lessons on his/her own… subsequently, you, the reader, own these lessons, forever.

Change requires your permission.
Are you ready to BE POSSIBLE?

If this man, born a slave in 620 BC, can still inspire the world with his message in the year 2013… what does that mean YOU can do?


We are all here to serve.

We are all here to BE POSSIBLE.

“A thought provoking exploration of freedom. It will inspire anyone who has ever dreamed of a better life.” – Quincy Jones

Positively Positive Founders Eric and Julie Handler at BlogWorld 2011

Over 1.1Million LIKES on Facebook
Gary W. Goldstein Interviews the Founders of Positively Positive.

Blogworld is visited by some of the most influential people on the web and in business, media, publishing and writing so it was not strange to see my dear friend Gary W. Goldstein and Eric and Julie Handler at this event.

Gary W Goldstein a long time friend introduced me to Eric and Julie at the Blogworld Conference. I had not heard of them up to that point. I must have been hiding under a rock or something!

Gary is a friend of Eric’s and he wanted me to interview him about Positively Positive. Gary started to give me a list of questions he thought I might ask and I immediately saw from his enthusiasm, that he might be the better person to do the interview. Gary is best know for being the producer of such movies like “Pretty Woman” and “Underseige” but I have seen him interview others and knew this would be great, and it is.

So thank you Eric and Julie and especially Gary for this incredible interview about how people are getting involved in a community to inspire, support, educate, entertain and help one another. – JW

Gary W. Goldstein has produced some of Hollywood’s biggest box office hits, generating well over a billion dollars in worldwide revenue, receiving multiple Academy Award nominations, People’s Choice Awards, a Golden Globe and various other awards. But that really doesn’t tell the whole story. Gary Goldstein would tell you that the story behind those films (which include Pretty Woman, Under Siege and a long list of other acclaimed works) is the people. It’s the cast of hundreds that come together and produce a work so compelling that millions of people choose to participate once the curtain is pulled back.

The world at large, however, would say that the story behind those successes is the leader. The guy who pulls it all together with grace and a keen talent for the golden thread that connects projects, people and success. That is Gary W. Goldstein.

Gary’s experience, strategies and powerful collaborations, developed over three decades of success stories in entertainment and in the business world, have empowered him to consistently and successfully reinvent and energize other people’s messages, offerings, businesses and their bottom line.

Author, speaker, coach, consultant, mentor, master storyteller and celebrated Hollywood film producer, Gary’s successes include some of Hollywood’s biggest box-office hits, generating over a billion dollars in worldwide revenue, and receiving numerous Academy Award nominations, People’s Choice Awards, a Golden Globe and various other awards.

Among other titles, Gary’s films include PRETTY WOMAN, UNDER SIEGE, and THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES.

[NOTE: My whole interview with Gary is in audio form below. You can also watch a short video clip of the interview also below]

The skills Gary brought to bear in climbing the ladder from newcomer to up-and-comer to mega-success in the film business can be used to empower any business or career path – and Gary has proven this many times over. His experience and strategies, developed over the recent 25 years, have empowered him to consistently and successfully reinvent and energize other people’s messages, products, businesses and their bottom line.

Gary also serves as board director or in-the-trenches advisor to start ups and companies poised for greater growth. He helps companies create stronger brands, leadership, advisory boards and strategic partnerships, as well as increase their product offerings, sales and marketing channels, loyal customer base and revenues.

To learn more about individual coaching and mentoring opportunities with Gary, or to discover whether your company is a good candidate for Gary’s advisory/consulting services, please make inquiry through his website. www.GaryWGoldstein.com.

I met Gary a few years back in the men’s room of a conference we both attended. I had no idea of Gary’s many accomplishments at the time, but we were both very interested in commercial real estate and I had some contacts and we both thought it would be a good idea to connect.

I do not remember Gary telling me about his Hollywood career, I am sure I was impressed, but what I really liked about Gary is that he is a incredibly creative and since he was a lawyer, he has a way of looking at things that I really needed then and now.

Gary is my go to person for sage advice and I want to thank him for being a great mentor and friend. – JW
