Who We Are

I want to take a couple of sentences and reintroduce you to our wonderful team.

My name is Sourena Vasseghi. I was born with cerebral palsy, but I always had big dreams. I also do not want to accept or cannot accept that my disability prevents me from accomplishing whatever I want in life. I use a wheelchair to get around. My body and brain don’t communicate that well, and I speak with a speech impediment that is akin to a foreign accent. I have built a team that helps me with the business, and, more importantly,...

Thanksgiving 2017

blog Nov 20, 2017

This year I have been a little MIA with my blog, but I want to commit to blogging every week. I thought that I would blog about Thanksgiving because I feel like gratitude is one of the best ways to deal with any challenge in life. More importantly, I have a truly amazing life and amazing people around me.

I have accomplished great feats in my life, and have many more dreams to come. If you had told me twenty years ago that I would be here today I would have fallen out of my chair. However, the long road ahead is bumpy and I know that there are challenges ahead of me.

My team, both professionally and personally, are amazing and I don’t know where I would be without these blessings in my life. In a moment, I’m going to make a list of the people I’m grateful for, but first, a quick look at perspective...

Like most people I have two hands; and, like some, I can do more with my left. Unlike most, however, I can do next to nothing with my right. Although I’m still...

Draft for new post - DO NOT DELETE ME & DO NOT PUBLISH ME :)

blog Nov 09, 2016

Here is a video that Chris shot on a trip to Orlando. My partners Chris Stevenson and Marty Velasco are great friends and we all like to travel and have a good time. A key to this has been creating systems that allow the business to run with or without us physically being there.

Thanks to business systems, Chris was able to go to Orlando for two weeks, one week to speak and the second week to spend with his family at Disneyworld. He was also able to leave his gym business for two weeks and travel to Maui with his family this past August. While on vacation, his gym in California still runs and he has opportunities to speak with and without me. He could not do this without creating business systems that allow him to work from anywhere around the world. He has a staff and systems in place so that his business can run even when he’s away. Marty just took half a week off to help his friend move to South Carolina. He also owns a gym...

Create Systems So You Can be Free

Communication lessons from a man who 'can't speak'

blog Mar 10, 2016

A debilitating condition has left Sourena Vasseghi with a severe speech impediment. But that hasn’t stopped him building a successful career as a motivational speaker.

Sourena Vasseghi has cerebral palsy, a condition that means he has limited motor skills, poor coordination and a severe speech impediment. But despite these challenges, Vasseghi has developed a successful career as an author and motivational speaker.

“I am the speaker who can’t speak and the writer who can’t write,” he said.

Shortly after graduating from business school in 2001, Vasseghi realised he had the skills to communicate with people and make a difference in their lives he was inspired to launch "http://sourenav.com/" The Sourena V Group, an executive coaching and business development company.

A key element of the company’s business is the speaking double act that Vasseghi has forged with Chris Stevenson, a gym owner and executive coach. The pair work together,...

Know Your Limitations

blog Feb 23, 2016

The weekend before last Payton Manning won his second Super Bowl as a quarterback for his second team in the NFL, the Denver Broncos. The old Payton Manning would have won the game by throwing the ball down field and suffocating the Carolina defense. Yet he understands that he is limited by age and body performance. Armed with this knowledge, Manning opted to win the Super Bowl in a different way, relying on his defense rather than trying to be the hero of the game. He transformed into a game manager, not the prior gun-slinging hero. He trusted his team that helped get him to this Final Dance once again.

One issue that I have learned about limitations is that you can’t fight them; you have to work within them. I can’t fight my disability, and Payton can’t fight Father Time. As individuals, we need to understand our limitations, and learn to rely on your team to bring you to victory.

Last week, I had a quarterly meeting with my partners and two of my best buddies,...

How to Achieve Your Goals

blog Jan 12, 2016

Last week, I gave you my thoughts on the problems with New Year’s resolutions. Now, I want to give you some techniques for achieving your goals:
Set very specific goals. The more specific goals you have, the easier it will be for you to create action steps to achieve them. Don’t get too rigid—you want your goals to have a chance to breathe, so don’t strangle them with restrictions. One of the the action steps that I am taking this year is to develop a target list of where I want to speak, but if I focus on only hitting my prospective list, then I might miss out on opportunities. The name of the game is commitment. Your goals take personal commitment, and the commitment of your resources. You must commit the time, energy, money, and other resources to achieve your goals.
Set a process. The process of achieving goals is important. Once you allocate your resources to your goals, you should determine your process of actually achieving them. Your goals need...

How To Think About New Year’s Resolutions

blog Jan 05, 2016

It is that time of year again, where some people make a list of everything they want to accomplish in the New Year. But there is a big problem with that; resolutions are based on the outcome, not the steps required to actually accomplish the goal. Having goals are great. Goals  are the first steps for success, but the creation of a process for actually achieving your goals is what you allow you to reach them in 2016. Every goal or dream has  actionable steps that need to be designed. These steps are critical to your success. The problem is these steps can be boring and even piss you off at times. In the beginning of the year we are all filled with excitement. Yeah I’m going to lose 10 pounds. Yeah I’m going over the counter viagra to save money. Yeah I’m going to eat better. Sometime in mid January you are doing well with your resolutions but you are starting to get bored with eating the same piece of chicken breast instead of French fries. Instead of...
