Ever been to an event in which the host made an offer for a program? Maybe one you really wanted to purchase that was really a stretch?
Did you go for it? Did you actually have the money, or did you have to do something special to come up with the cash?
I absolutely LOVE this post-event scramble.
Masses of people begin taking extraordinary action to bring in the money. They do the things they’ve been thinking about doing and resisting, like raising their rates, connecting with prospects and partners, creating new offerings that make clients step up and take their work more seriously.
It’s as if I can feel the energy on the planet shifting, consciousness raising, as these individuals move past their own fear into the love of the game of growth. It is beautiful.
So here’s the question.
When you attend an event, in person or by phone, in which the host presents you with an opportunity to invest in your business, how do you react? What’s your interpretation of things?

2) The Lobster
|Are you the one who listens to the offer, rules it out, then circulates the event asking others if they signed up and getting as many as possible to question their decision and say “no” and stay stuck.I call this the lobster because in a pot of boiling lobsters, each will claw the others down and keep them in the pot until they die a collective slow death.The impact:
3) The Scaler
|Perhaps you are the one who throws your hat over the wall and then does whatever it takes to make it happen. The obstacle is nothing more than a call for you to be bigger, bolder, and more courageous. You celebrate the pitch, whether it’s for you or not, because you know that any time someone offers their genius it creates more life on the planet. You encourage others who are grappling with the decision to say yes.The impact:
Heroes are made in the “find the money phenomenon” – are you one of them?
