Have your New Year's resolutions already disappeared? Are your creative dreams buried and the thought of digging them up makes you feel exhausted?  Do you have a creative project that you can't seem to put into motion? What if I told you that in 50 days, the progress you'll make will be so good, it will actually SCARE you? Just as a groundhog is scared of his own shadow, if the thought of achieving your goal in 6 to 7 weeks doesn't scare you... then it's the wrong goal... or it's not BIG enough! When the groundhog sees his shadow, we know that six more weeks of winter is upon us. What if you used that six weeks to accelerate your creative dream and succeed at something that excites you and ignites you?

If you have questions, send an e-mail to Danny@DannyDonuts.com or call me at 773-412-7780. 
There are no guarantees that you'll achieve your goal, but I will guarantee that I will give it my all.

​I want you to experience the thrill of living your creative dreams! 


I know I can help you achieve your creative goals because I have a lot of real life experience achieving my creative goals... but for some of you that's probably not good enough. You might want to see certificates from accredited coaching programs and diplomas from universities. You might want to be coached by someone with fancy initials after their name and an impressive title.
​Perhaps it will help if I share my new professional photograph...

Ever feel like your creative dreams are being crushed?
​Let's move mountains together and bring your creative goals to life!

I've done it. I've written books, made a movie, recorded CDs that have gotten national radio airplay and produced TV shows that have played in a major market. I've been on big stages, I've received standing ovations and I've gotten results. I've had to pull off some big challenges under some tight deadlines. I've experienced intense pressure and I've failed. I've persisted and I've learned. In the areas of my life that I feel I've achieved success, I discovered a common theme.

Did I mention we're going to have FUN? I take this coaching program serious, but if we're not having fun, why should we do it? I'm not here to motivate you. Motivation is getting people to do something they don't want to do. Inspiration on the other hand is breathing LIFE INTO something. I want to help inspire you and help you discover how you can inspire yourself and others every single day!

By the way, I actually have a couple of college diplomas but I think I learned more working as a tour guide on the sand dunes of Lake Michigan. I like to say I went to Sand Duniversity! And in this coaching program I actually believe we can learn from another non-traditional source... a groundhog. Many people think the groundhog is going back to bed so he doesn't have to deal with life (winter). But is he escaping his problems or dreaming about and manifesting the life he wants to live into (spring)?  Disclaimer: I use the pronoun "he" because our most popular groundhog is Punxsutawney Phil, not Punxsutawney Phyllis, but this coaching program is designed to work for all creative beings. I started this Groundhog Goal program back in 2004 when I was looking for a more meaningful way to celebrate Groundhog Day. So yeah, it started out of a silly concept, but for the past 14 years, it's always been a serious time for me. I want to achieve a lot of big things in life. I don't bother making New Year's Resolutions. I wait for a month. On January 1st, we're coming off a crazy holiday season. It takes some time for things to fall back into place and for us to get back in the swing of things. I find that by the beginning of February, I'm in a much better place to really look at what I want in the upcoming year. I'm ready! Are you ready? Let me show you what you'll get in this coaching program: 

An Initial Goal-Setting Exercise. I recommend setting goals in 4 areas of your life that you will work on throughout the year... but the big one, the one that scares you, the one we will be concentrating most of our energy on is the GROUNDHOG GOAL! This is a pretty-involved and intense exercise. You could whip through it in an hour or really dig down and spend several hours on it. As soon as you register, I'll get you started on this so you can get clear on your goals by the time the groundhog sees his shadow. 
A Weekly 1-on-1 Coaching Call... 7 calls with me. We're in this together. I expect a lot of big things to come out of these calls and I hope you will too. We'll create a game plan that you'll be excited about putting into action.
Group Coaching. In my 14 years of doing this program, I learned a lot and want to share as much as I can with you. I can communicate a lot of this through group coaching so I can concentrate more specific coaching on our 1-on-1 calls. 
A Daily Text Check-In. (text, messenger, e-mail) a quick communication to keep your goal a priority in your life

The Groundhog's Den. A private and super-positive Facebook community made up of people in this program. I'll be sharing a lot of my group coaching on this page through writing and videos.

Barb. I happen to be married to one of the most positive people on the planet and her drive and commitment in helping people get what they want is unmatched. By registering in this program, you'll also get access to Barb's good positive energy. She'll definitely be a powerful presence in this group.
A Celebration.
 The final week of the program will be focused on celebration. We have St. Patrick's Day, the first day of Spring, Holi (I just found out about this one) our successes, our failures, the courageous steps we took, and we get to celebrate you! In years past this has always been a 6-week program to coincide with the six more weeks of winter. Because I'm a former pro at crastination and I can relate to the folks who wish they had a few more days, I'm extending it to a full 50 days. We now have an extra week to achieve our big Groundhog Goal, and we have 7 more days to celebrate achieving it!
Value You've heard it all before... you'll get out of it what you put into it. This is true. One of the biggest challenges I've seen is keeping the dream alive. If all we accomplish is keeping your dream alive for you, I hope the value you put on that is 10, 20, 100 times what you'll pay for this program. But if you put in the effort and are committed to achieving your goal, I know the value you'll get out of this will be huge. You won't be able to put a price tag on it because you wouldn't trade it for any amount of money. (If you would, your goal probably wasn't BIG enough!)  

I do have to put a price tag on it, though, so here's where I tell you how much all this costs. Usually this is the scary part because if you're still reading, you must want to do this for yourself, and you'll be disappointed if it costs too much. Well I have some great news. If you like BIG SALES, AMAZING DEALS and GREAT BARGAINS... Keep reading! 

​I normally charge $300 a month for Creative Coaching. That means this 50 day program would normally be $500. If you achieve your creative goal or get a lot closer than you would have gotten without this program, I think you would agree that it was money well-invested in yourself. But I want to be able to help as many people as I can this Groundhog holiday season so I'm going to offer this program at an unbelievably good deal... Instead of $70 per week... I'm offering The Groundhog Goal Creative Coaching Program to you for the insanely low price of $70 for all 7 weeks! Whaaaaat? Only $10 a week? $1.40 a day? Surely, you can invest $1.40 a day in yourself and your creative dreams. ( And I'm talking to all y'all, not just Shirley!) This offer closes at 11:59pm C.S.T. February 2nd, 2019. $70. It's a one-time pre-payment only (no weekly pay options). The program officially starts on Groundhog Day, February 2nd and runs through March 23rd. But it really starts as soon as you sign up! I'll get you started working on the initial exercise and you'll be well on your way to living your creative dreams! 50 Days to Achieve Your Goal! Let's Do This! I Look forward to working with you!

​​I follow a simple system...  


And in the areas of my life that I haven't been successful, one or more of those steps are missing.
