Happy Monday!  On this show I share about this weekend, which was a HUGE weekend for me, because 1) It is the second to last weekend before I leave my job and 2) I spent it with Lisa Nichols and the cast of the Speak and Write to Make Millions Seminar.

In this episode of the MITM Daily Creation Call I share what I have been getting out of the Speak and Write Seminar, interviewing someone to replace me when I leave my job, living my life waiting for other people to give me for permission, making up my future, and broken promises.  I also asked that you, those of you who are listening to the live episodes and reading our blog, let us know what you like, what you don’t like, who you are, what you find useful and what you want going forward.

We really do what this to be of value to you, so please let us know what you find valuable.  LOVE YOU!

Investing in yourself first

I was listening to Entrepreneur on Fire the other day and David Wood was talking about investing in yourself, and he was not joking around.  You need to be investing in your most valuable resource – YOU!  

This weekend I am doing exactly that.  I am investing in myself, in that lump of pink grey mass that sits between my ears:)  Nice visual isn’t it!

This weekend I am spending 3 days with Lisa Nichols and her Motivating the Masses support team at their annual conference Speak and Write to Make Millions.  And let me tell you this event is nothing shy of great.  The way I ended up at the conference was magical, the timing of the conference was perfect and the value its providing is priceless.

SpeakWriteAbout 4-5 months ago I was volunteering at an event.  I had been feeling somewhat uninspired in my day job and thinking about how I could make a bigger impact on the day-to-day.  I am watching people share when this amazingly eloquent lady steps to the microphone and starts talking in her sultry voice about how blessed she is to work with such a wonderful cast of people and have a life where she reaches and motivates thousands.  I was interested.  I wouldn’t normally go up and talk to her, but I had this feeling inside of me, like it was a line of demarcation or something.  It was an opportunity to either walk toward my destiny or shrink away from it, and I chose the former.  In what felt like a really bold move, I introduced myself to her and said that I would love to chat sometime if she was open to it.  

2 weeks later we had a phone call.  I asked her questions about her life, job and journey; and she offered a ticket to Speak and Write.  As the event neared, with this new promise to leaving the day job and becoming an entrepreneur, I reached out to her and voila – I received a hugely discounted ticket in;-)  Connections make the world go round.

Fast forward to today, day 1 of the conference   We covered a lot of ground and it is late so I can’t share it all with you, but I can tell you some of the key take aways or golden nuggets.

  • The self-development industry is a $210B industry – HOLY HECK get in on this pie
  • Your potential customer’s lack of resources does not determine your value!
  • When you are truly connected to your audience you check in with them and see if their needs are being met.
  • Convictions and convenience do not live in the same sentence.  Are you willing to give for your dreams?
  • A book is simply an expensive business card.  But it can be very valuable for brand leveraging.
  • Hire people who are going to lead, not follow.
  • Pyrrhic victory is when the cost of the victory outweighs the victory itself – watch out for this.
  • Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) allows you to determine who you to craft your core message, because it captures who you are and what you stand for.
  • When you talk to people and network lead with the benefit or result that you provide and what you need, vice what you do.  

Please leave a comment and let me know: What are you doing to invest in yourself?  What have you found that is really valuable?

Daily Creation Call #11

Empower half hour with Jess and I.  During this show Jessica discusses her freaked-out, I-hate-the-world panic and the subsequent AHA! moment she had.  Her upcoming weekend trip and the value of listening to her husbands advice.  It turns out he really has been listening to what she has been saying.  Good work Tom;)

I discuss the value of sharing your dreams with the people in your life, the collaboration that is possible when you tell people what you are up to, the book The Power by Rhonda Byrne and the law of attraction.  I also do a little rap/singing.  Don’t worry about showering me with praise, I know I am a talented lyricist!

I am so pumped about this extraordinary life that we get to live.  Thank you for being on this journey of self discovery with us.  I will never shut-up about how much I love you, because I am not sure you will ever REALLY get how much it means that I get to be part of this blog and your life.
