What’s on Ray’s Radar?

  1. Hunger for More: People in general have a hunger for pursuing what’s possible in life. There is – and can be – more than what they’re experiencing right now.
  2. Helping: We have an inborn desire to serve, help, and come alongside others, especially in their times of dire need.
  3. Health: People long to be better stewards of their minds and bodies.

Ray’s Take on Masterminds:

Every leader/business owner needs to be a part of three different mastermind groups:

  1. A free group made up of peers
  2. A group you pay to be a member of, learning from others
  3. A group you LEAD and share your expertise

Leadership and Life Principles:

  • Treat people the way you want to be treated. Whatever you want men to do or give to you, give or do to them BEFORE they do it to you! (Luke 6:31)
  • If you want to be great, you have to be a servant. (Matthew 6:20)
  • If you want to be exalted, you have to be humble. (Luke 14:11)
  • “He who thinks he leads but has no followers is only taking a walk.” ~ John Maxwell

2. Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We are launching a brand new, next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …


To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
