Potty Training VERY Stubborn 3 Year Old

Please help. My son is very strong willed to say the least, to the point that his child care provider has said she has never seen a child this stubborn. He refuses to use the potty.

I'm looking for advice/ideas on how to Potty Train my 3 year old son. How do I know he's ready?
