“A true leader is someone that lifts everyone around them. Are you being a leader today?”

~John Milanoski.


Last night, I got the call. The call you never want…

My Father passed away! It was sudden, unexpected and shocking to me!

Once again, another challenge thrown in! It was only a few months ago my Grandfather passed. We all get challenges at different times in different ways. For each of us they come in a certain frequency and intensity. We even have phrases like, "Crap comes in piles".

Maybe I am in shock… I was certainly inspired to write to you today.

For more than a year and a half I have been working on the most important project of my life and I have had more dirt, challenges and frustration thrown at me than ever before! I tell myself, based on experience that the greatest breakthroughs will come after moving through the greatest challenges!

Tonight, I sat here contemplating what my life will mean. What will I do for this world? What difference will I make, how will I matter? Do you ever think that? I hope so, if not, maybe this letter will help you to do that.

Our time here is so short and so neglected by most of us. It is a gift. Maybe I don’t know you personally but I do know yoitu have a magnificent potential within you. ANYONE can be the catalyst for something great.

Here’s the deal… I Started TCA to bring people together. To make a difference. It is my effort to ignite change. It will take many of us. 100’s of thousands of people have grabbed a glimpse of it and seen, felt or heard something within themselves that made sense and are now part. It will grow to millions and go around the world.

It will happen. I know the world has often misled you maybe even turned its back on you. We’ve all had this happen.

It is my promise to you, if we all pull together with patience, commitment, sincere desire to connect with integrity, honesty and true heart we will build something magnificent that can have a WORLDWIDE impact for the better. It will go for generations. I will need your help and I will help you in any way I can.

I assure you that no amount of dirt, negative blogging defaming lies, computer crashes, network outages, misleading employees, bad mouthing or whatever, will move me from my path and mission. There are so many people in the world that have less than you and I and are counting on us. We will only see humans full potential when the majority of us accept that we are all connected and come together. You will not receive your true potential until you open up and share who you are, what you know and that which you can contribute.

You have 45 pieces of a 50 piece puzzle figured out and until you share what you know with another, you will never get the other 5. The person you open to and share with could be the one that has those 5. As you reach out, you will meet that person, if you don’t, you never will. Make sure you don’t live a 45 puzzle piece life in a 50 piece puzzle!

There are those that focus on lack, victimization, and shortcomings. Then there are those that recognize possibility. They create and realize there IS abundance. Most of the world is something created from nothing. 90% of the things around you today were not even a possibility 40 years ago! Where there is dry dirt, water can be brought in. If someone has lack it is because that is what they focus on. You look around you and you see it everywhere. I can bring another person from another place and they will sit next to you and see a world of possibility. It’s all there, simultaneously (good-bad / detriment – benefit) I think everything has this dual potential. It is just what you focus on that makes the difference.

I guess in anything worthwhile, you will have those that challenge you, criticize you, and highlight your flaws (as if they are so perfect and flawless). I will never understand how one can formulate such negative energy and waste their precious time/energy on such things. Fact is, someone will even throw eggs at me for this letter. Good, they have identified themselves and we can move on to those that WILL make a difference in the world.

Somewhere, the voice has to come from. It is within you. Allow the negative people to inspire you as much as those that positively encourage. You see, I do my best to walk a true path. I have nothing to hide and I will give all the value I can to anyone around me. UNCONDITIONALLY, at the top of my list is Integrity, Intentions to lift and contribute to others, to open doors of possibility. To shine the light in a way that gets someone to expand their thinking. Time reveals all.

So, there you have it, That’s me, Founder of The Customer Advantage in a Nutshell. Out in the open, here to partner with you on any level. Here to give you VALUE first! To prove to you the world can be Win Win. TCA is moving forward, that is inevitable. You are always welcome. We are in the stage of identifying the true leaders of the world. This is YOU if you want, are you ready? If so, share your thoughts. http://johnmilanoski.com/your-turn-to-win-by-john-milanoski This story will be EPIC and Historical. Be part of it. Go on record.

I am requesting the participation of all those that know in their heart, a change can happen. It will take a TEAM of us. The world can be a great place of love and support. Even the toughest guy in the neighborhood wants this, it’s in the heart of us all. Two people will get a carton of eggs. One person will place the eggs on the doorstep of someone in need. The other will throw them at the person placing the eggs or even the home of the person in need. If you want to throw eggs, go for it, empty your carton, politely opt out and take that negativity somewhere else where it may have some impact in a positive way.

Let your true Character be known, it is evident in your actions. Big things are coming together here and how you participate is up to you. You can move full speed now and be at the forefront of the greatest opportunity ever or you can wait and watch others do it. Once we go live, very soon, you will watch TCA go to millions rather quickly. I hope you too are building your foundation. Build it on solid relationships with great intention. A position of Strength and Support.

It has always been presented that we are in pre-launch. We have 100,000 members now. This is only 1% of where we will be very shortly. I know you might be skeptical, that’s ok… you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I also know that impatience is the barrier for 90% of the population and their success. Rome was not built in a day. The foundation takes the longest, once that is in place it seems it was overnight. Our overnight is coming shortly! What will the Nay Sayers Say then? They’ll do what they always do… take their negativity to the next place they can spout it!

The next time you hear some negative person discredit you, just stop, step back and ask yourself… what has this person contributed to the world and what are they GOING to contribute? Oh, and if they are anonymous, there is probably a good reason for that too!

With all my heart, I am grateful that you are part of what we are doing. I respect your time and I am honored by your consideration. You have my promise that TCA is a home for anyone that is committed to the LONG TERM. You want something to go for Generations, that’s the full intention here!

Stand with me as we make an impact on the world!

Respectfully, sincerely and in the open,

John Milanoski

In memory of my father David A Milanoski, The most brilliant, quiet, patient man I know! I will miss him dearly. I will carry my obligation to enhance the world for generations that follow.

Wake up Call!

    Hey John! Keep up the good work! The following is your REWARD so far:”If you are waiting for your SHIP to come in, then I suggest that you CREATE the dock from where it is going to be coming in from!”(Does not relate to you)”Stop chasing em’, Start replacing em’!”

    “Where Do I See Myself 10 Years From Now? NOWHERE!! Where Do I See Myself 10 Years Ago? SOMEWHERE!!” (Change begins YESTERDAY, and JOURNEYS ON INTO TOMORROW!)

    “I have been “broke” for so many years, that I have finally come up with its’ definition: “Not being connected with legitimate INFORMATION, A PRODUCT OR A SERVICE!!”

    “What you HEAR, influences WHAT YOU SAY, and you will wind up DOING WHAT
    YOU SAY, sooner or later!
    “Hate” is a very dangerous “environment” to find one’s self in!
    “Happiness is the absence of the striving for happiness.”
    “What matters is “your experience” in the circumstance and NOT the
    “circumstance” in your experience!”

    “If I go most of the day with a positive dialogue, and everyone that I come in contact with goes most of the day with a negative dialogue, my question to this PANEL is, when I go to bed at night, whose dialogue do you think will stick to my mind LIKE A MAGNET? Well, you guessed right: MINE!!!!!!!!

    Did I also forget to mention that a DIALOGUE does not return void to its’ sender?
    The fact of the matter is that it is not the information, circumstances and events that come into your life that either MAKES or BREAKS you; rather, it is WHAT YOU SAY, “based” upon the information, circumstances and events that come into your life, that WILL either MAKE or BREAK you!”

    John, in my opinion, what MATTERS is not the experiences of others, the circumstances or events that you encounter on a daily basis; rather, at the end of the day, it is YOUR EXPERIENCE, in the experience of others and in the circumstances or events that you encounter on a daily basis that MATTERS!”

    “Our make up is so phenomenal that our words actually becomes our laws in life! It makes no difference what business one get’s involved with. The business is just a vehicle to help someone OVERCOME in order to BECOME!

    What if the founders of Amway, now GLOBAL, got discouraged back in the day when some of its’ distributors “lost” their shirts; today, they wouldn’t be the largest network marketing company in the world! The point I am trying to make, John, is that it is all RELATIVE! It’s all about YOUR EXPERIENCE and no one else’s!!”

    In conclusion John, LET THE DOGS BARK, THEY ALWAYS DO, BUT YOUR CARAVAN IS MOVING OOONNN!!!! God bless you and your ENTIRE family!
    Talk to you soon!

    Deepest condolences to you and your family John. I struggled with the death of my own father in 2004 but my inner strength and support of my family got me through it. I’m sure your father was and is so proud of you John. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless you all.

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I will hold you and your family in my prayers for this time of grieving.
    You have done so much for so many and have put so much time and energy in helping others and I personally wanted to thank you.
    I am currently working on building an income Today and having a wonderful time connecting with others. I wake up every morning with a sense of excitement and go to sleep every night with a sense of accomplishment. Helping others to get a paycheck is so thrilling!

  • May 23, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    I want to thank you for your vigilance and insight with regard to TCA. It is clear that you have a passion for people and I for one, share your passion. I am in for the long haul to see dreams realized and people the better for it.
    Will lift your family in prayer as you go through this time of grief, reflection, and resolve.

    John – I wrote this when my dad passed away and read it at his funeral. It’s one thing that helped me through, in that I knew I could still continue to lift his life higher by always striving to do my best. I hadn’t lost my chance to continue to thank him and show him how much I love him. I KNOW that you will continue to add value to your dads life in a HUGE way. Thanks for everything you are doing for us and for those to come. You are an inspiration to me. This is titled… ‘I miss my Dad’

    I miss my Dad. He was the best listener of anyone I know. I knew that I could always call him and he would listen to my ideas and concerns. He would be genuinely interested, and encourage me. He always believed in me and was proud of me.

    I watched him as I was growing up. He was different in some ways than other Dads. For instance, he always seemed to work for himself. I am now an entrepreneur, and credit him with instilling that desire within me.

    I used to watch him fix stuff around the house. Sometimes I’d help. I am now a handyman and can fix up houses. I credit him with instilling that in me.

    My Dad worked extra hard to have the money to send me to private school for many years. That school taught me a lot. I read and write well they tell me. I’m thankful to my Dad. He made this possible.

    I miss my Dad. He liked to cook, and we shared many recipes. He sometimes made my recipes taste better when he’d make them. I would humbly ask him what he changed. He loved it when I’d have to do that.

    I miss my Dad. There is no one to replace him. He always wanted the best for me, and still does. I wanted to call him the other day. I wanted to share my latest triumph and defeat. I couldn’t.

    There’s one thing I can do, and you can do it too. I know going forward that the more I do for others and the more I can help others, the more value I bring to my dad’s life. Join me today in making your parents life more valuable by always being the best you can be and helping others whenever possible. Thanks to everyone for coming today, and your support of our family at this time.

    I love you Dad. Thanks for everything. -Your son Joel

    My deepest sympathies to your and your family John. We lost our Mom to Leukemia 3 years ago. The death of a parent is devastating. And having just lost your Grandfather too! My heart goes out to you.

    Please know your spirit, vision and integrity shine through in all you do. Your legacy on humanity will be monumental. I for one feel blessed to be a part of TCA and your vision for change.

    You are in my prayers.

    Great thoughts, John. And my prayers are with you and your family. I’m sure your Dad is proud of you too.

  • May 23, 2011 at 9:20 am

    First let me say you are in my prayers and that I am respectful and share sorrow for the loss of your father. I lost my only son at the age of 18, and then a few years later my father, who I respect and admire the same way you speak of your father. If I could only be HALF the man my father was I would be one heck of a great guy. I forwarded my daily devotion from our church to you because it seems to have the message you want to convey as well, so I guess the Lord DOES work in mysterious ways, even giving us direction and guidance at a time when it is important. In addition, I have a phrase which came to me years ago and to this day I repeat it to myself and share it with others: “Let those who reach for the Stars, only to fail find comfort in knowing that MANY others never even tried” GPage, circa 1980. Moral to this is doesn’t matter how often you fall down or fail, as long as you get up and keep trying.

    Again, you are in my thoughts and prayers, and I intend to follow you to the top with TCA. Take care, Gary Page, http://turnthepage.thecustomeradvantage.com

    My prayers for you and your family. I am sorry for your loss,

    You are correct in your assessment of life’s challenges…as Rocky Marciano said something like, “It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get back up”

    John, your words remind me of Galatians 5:22. Good people have always been impatient, and today we all want drive-thru everything. But if this will be good, an economic stimulus, bring people together, and educate us in a new way, then in a year or 2 or 5, will we think it mattered that it wasn’t launched in a few months?
    I know I always need wisdom and patience!
    God bless,
    John Dunbar

  • May 23, 2011 at 6:37 am

    John, our hearts are with you. I too lost my parents although it was when I was in high school, and I had 5 younger brothers and sisters. It’s these times that forge our character and I have no doubt you will deliver on all your commitments. When times are tough the true heroes rise to the top and that’s why we give them medals. We have a famous naval commander who once said, “Damn the torpedoes, Full Steam Ahead!”
    We are all here to help but right now our prayers are with you.

  • May 23, 2011 at 6:20 am

    It is great that you choose to use this emotion of loss to honor your father and grandfather to end up knowing that the ultimate result of your life will be like theirs. They have obviously instilled in you a set of great values and accomplished great things themselves, making their passing the last step in their lives here,,the last accomplishment, the final act and destination, which left a legacy they are proud of! God Bless your endeavor and my part in it.

  • May 23, 2011 at 6:05 am

    God bless you and your family John. When you are ready, be more determined than ever to make your dream come true. Your dad will be so proud!

  • May 23, 2011 at 4:32 am

    John, just got your message about the death of your dad! Our thoughts are with you and your family!

  • May 23, 2011 at 4:22 am

    John as a Registered Nurse I have seen many deliveries and have seen many people pass on. I can tell you from My experience that most men have one name that brings them joy the most as they mention it and that is their son’s. I can only imagine the smile on his face as he mentioned yours with pride and honor to have called you his son. John I am sure your father as he closed the curtains of this life was being applauded by angels for a job well done with you. For sure he felt that his purpose in this world for you was complete, one reason is because you will help millions of people get their life back and enjoy it to the fullest. I hope that when my father passes on I can make him as proud. john YOU and your family are in our prayers and in my ministries prayers.

  • May 23, 2011 at 3:38 am

    John thank you for your courage…our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family… Given that this week we as Americans will celebrate Memorial Day it is fitting to acknowledge that we stand with a man of “Honor and Integrity” as his word. Thank you John for taking a stand for all of us!
