I want you to choose to #BeHappy . Because #happiness is really a choice. You can #DecideOrChoose to harbor all the negative things in #YourLife or the #NegativeMoments . And a lot of people do that. But what I want you to do…yeah, you…what I want you to do is I want you to #ChooseHappiness for the next year. I want you to make sure that even if you get #upset you don’t hold onto it, you don’t harbor it, you don’t #ExpandOnIt . What I want you to do is #Expand on your happiness. Look for things that make you happy, whether it is just going outside and looking at the #BeautifulTrees and #flowers and the sky, do something that makes you happy. In fact, do it today. That is a #challenge for you. Keep #MakingItHappen . Join us at our latest event: The H Code Webinar next Wednesday at 8pm EST. www.TheHCode.com/Power

“Complacency kills. Take a look around you. History teaches us that that half of the companies in the room right now won’t be around in 20 years. Maybe 10!” - #Futurist Jim Carroll
I meet a lot of people who live in a bubble - they think tomorrow will be like today. My job is to scare them into action.
The fact is, disruption is everywhere: every business, and every industry is being redefined at blinding speed by technology, globalization, the rapid emergence of new competitors, new forms of collaborative global R&D, and countless other challenges.
And therein lies the challenge.
Most organizations are bound up in traditions, process, certain defined ways of doing things — rules — that have helped them succeed in the past. Over time, they have developed a corporate culture which might have worked at the slower paced world of the past — but now has them on the sick-bed, suffering from an organizational sclerosis that clogs up their ability to try to do anything new.
Those very things which worked for them in the past might be the anchors that could now hold them back as the future rushes at them with ever increasing speed.
I got bit by the typewriter bug.
Currently, I own 11 clunky, vintage, word machines.
Typing helps my writing.
With no backspace, I use my words carefully & with color.
Escorted into stories by their sound, smell, & feel — these toys act as decoys from the noise in my mind.

Hello. I just wanted to thank you and re-introduce myself. ✌🏼✌🏼My name is Johnny Cupcakes and I make t-shirts with cupcakes on them. I started this t-shirt brand as a joke, from one of my nicknames while working as a clerk at Newbury Comics.
While getting t-shirts made for my old metal band, I made a few Johnny Cupcakes t-shirts as a joke to advertise a bakery that didn't exist.
This made people smile & it also made them confused. Two of my favorite things. It was tough, but I took a risk, left the band to focus 100%, rolled with the punches, made a bunch of mistakes and some success, & for the past 17 years I’ve had this t-shirt brand where I've been fortunate enough to employ my mom, dad, & sister.
My retail shop in Boston on 279 Newbury St looks & smells like a retro bakery. Tees displayed in refrigerators & packaged in pastry boxes! Hungry people don’t like that, which is why we have so many bad reviews on those food review sites.
We're thankful to have been able to work with hundreds of charities, open up 500+ pop-up shops, have thousands of loyal customers with Johnny Cupcakes logos tattooed on themselves, & be featured as a case study in several branding and business books. It feels like dream.
You, too, can hustle hard & follow your passion. Keep positive & embrace failure while extracting every lesson from your experiments. Rinse, wash, repeat. I mess up. I don’t have it entirely figured out. But my one superpower is loving & learning to adapt.
Outside of work, I’m a straight edge dude who enjoys ping-pong, Korean BBQ, Home Alone 1+2, DJ Shadow, Wu-Tang Clan, Deftones, Mario Kart, magic tricks, collecting vintage typewriters & vinyl soul + funk 45’s.
Frequently I travel as a keynote speaker on brand loyalty and customer experience.
I'm writing a book about this funny journey and the things I've learned. Looking forward to share more with you!
Your city might be where my next pop-up shop or speaking engagement is! Tap my profile and Follow me on Instagram to learn more about Johnny Cupcakes, The World’s First T-Shirt Bakery!

You needed the experience in that moment to change your trajectory for a lifetime. While you counted it out, God did the math and he will count it back in again. Don’t lose hope today! This verse below blessed me!
📝Deuteronomy 30:1-5 “Here’s what will happen. While you’re out among the nations where GOD has dispersed you and the blessings and curses come in just the way I have set them before you, and you and your children take them seriously and come back to GOD, your God, and obey him with your whole heart and soul according to everything that I command you today, GOD, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, GOD, your God, will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life and make you more numerous than your ancestors.”
THIS BLESSED ME.🙌🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
