I traveled 1,444 miles to speak at 10 events to more than 1,500 people in a span of 16 days – here are the 3 main things I learned:
1) Organizing 10 speaking gigs in a span of 2 weeks was difficult – but I made it as easy as possible on myself & the clients by having an infrastructure.
I have speaker agreements, I have my LLC, I have my media page, I have my social channels accurately representing who I am.
Some of us out there who are in business or trying to go into business make it harder on ourselves because we make it difficult for people to actually do business with us. Remove the barriers & set up the systems for your success.
2) Some people just need to be heard – and some people just need to hear the honest truth.
I heard some heartbreaking personal stories throughout all of the people I met. Most of them young kids asking me why their mom is on drugs or why their dad is in jail…things our kids shouldn’t have to be asking.
But I told all of them two things: 1) What you’re going through may not be your fault…this may be the hand life dealt you and that’s the honest truth, but 2) The quality of your life is STILL your responsibility. You’re still responsible for you. No one else. No one owes you anything. You owe YOU.
3) The work was hard…the work was difficult & tiring, but man, it was REWARDING.
I left every one of those speaking engagements so full, so rich, so fulfilled. That was my million-dollar check.
For you, if there is something you truly want in this world – a dream, a goal, an ambition – it’s gonna require a lot of work. It’s gonna take sacrificing time with friends, it’s going to take working when everyone else has gone home for the day, it’s gonna take working when no one else is working, it’s gonna take putting in the work when there’s no one there to see you putting in the work.
It’s gonna take a lot of work to have a glimpse of the life you want, but the process is faithful. Be quiet, put in the work and let your results do your talking.
