Musings from Joe "Connector" Kennedy

My Mentors

At nearly 55 years of age, I consider myself the luckiest person on the planet! Although I spent most of my life, wishing I had a mentor who would teach me how to be successful and make money and enjoy the finer things in life, I now realize that I’ve had many mentors along this road less traveled.

This list is meant to be a starting point to recognize and recommend some of the many great mentors I have had in my life.  I will attempt to make it a point to continually add to and update this list: (in no certain order)

Anthony Robbins – One of my earliest mentors, Tony’s book, Unlimited Power was a huge inspiration to me.

Dr. Wayne Dyer – I never actually met Wayne, but have spent enough time with him through his books, videos and audio tapes that I feel like we were good friends.  I did correspond with him and he was super kind to me, sending me a number of his signed books as gifts.

Joseph Morgan Kennedy – although I never really got the guidance or positive support that I was looking for from my dad, I realize that he was only doing his best – and that from him I learned many, many valuable life lesson.

David Zinchenko – Editor of Men’s Health and Author.  Through his Abs Diet book series, my entire life has been changed forever.  He helped me discover eating clean, my abs and helped give me the info that I use to help others eat and live healthier lives.

Paramahansa Yagananda – one my my most recent mentors, he was an author and founder of the Self Realization Fellowship in 1920.  I’m currently reading his life changing book “Autobiography of a Yogi”
