Have you been working on your business for a LONG time, yet nothing is budging? Your income is stagnant, your client roster is holding steady but not increasing. You are following the steps your coach gave you but not seeing the results you want?
You read about people who went from 0 to $100,000 in some very short period of time (like I did). Wonder what the secret really is?
Do you want to know what the rocket fuel is to big success?
The secret to getting to the big leagues fast is…
Getting out of your house and meeting people who can help you in your business. For most of my clients, that means attending live events. Looking at the people who have made great strides quickly, I can say that 90% of them are regular event attendees. When you attend events, you get to meet people face to face, you make connections you help each other.
As a matter of fact, I think I can safely say that I don’t know of anyone who has succeeded in online business all by themselves.
Here are the three reasons I attend live events:
1. They are full of entrepreneurs and that is my ideal client! I have met a good 75% of my top tier coaching clients at live events. But, even if entrepreneurs aren’t your ideal client, you can still meet plenty of potential clients at conferences and other live events.
2. They are the quickest way to get new ideas that can be implemented immediately! Even though I go to live events *all the time* and I often attend the same events over and over again, I can honestly say that I get one new idea every time I go. I usually go and implement it and 90% is makes me money. The idea sometimes comes from a speaker, but more often from a conversation at lunch or during break time.
3. They are a great way to position yourself as an expert in your field – maybe through speaking or sponsoring. I have made more than my investment back in new client each time I sponsor a conference. The big secret is that often sponsorships are not expensive.
So, given the above, why aren’t you going to more live events? For most people, the issue is money. But, given everything I’ve said, how can you afford not to go?
I hope you’ll consider coming to my conference – Take Action Get Profits in Houston this September. The early bird price is very reasonable and I’ve negotiated a rock bottom room rate (with free wi-fi and free parking). Check it out at http://takeactiongetprofits.com.
See you in the big leagues 🙂© Copyright 2013 Michele A Scism
