San Francisco Double

Dates: October 9-10
Venue: San Francisco, site to be announced

I’ve been persuaded to come to San Francisco (where I once lived) and conduct a rare double: The only opportunity to attend Super Best Practices in the United States (otherwise available only in London and Adelaide) coupled with Thinking Big, a preview of a brand new offering that is occurring in Miami in January.

So, these are one-time opportunities!

 

Super Best Practices

I’m presenting a new experience—not even previously delivered in the US—for consultants, coaches, trainers, facilitators, and other entrepreneurs (including boutique firm owners) who are seeking to adapt and build on the best practices I’ve observed (and created) globally.

These aren’t theoretical, but are instead highly pragmatic and you’ll be able to apply them immediately for improved results. In my earlier, basic best practices programs it wasn’t unusual for people to leave the room and make immediate calls to create changes in current proposals, initiatives, and delivery. You’ll do the same here because we’re developing the following skills:

  • How to receive daily
  • How to create communities that evangelize for you.
  • How to move toward low labor advisory work and retainers.
  • How to create high value passive income.
  • How to isolate what makes you “remarkable” right now and exploit it.
  • How to be “constructively outrageous.”
  • How to respond to the toughest questions and apply martial arts to them.
  • How to implement “MACS” (make all clients stars).
  • How to create original, compelling intellectual property
  • How to avoid the success trap of “nesting” (complacent, zero growth).

You will gain a huge ROI if you use just a few of these super best practices, but most of you can use them all. How well are you doing them now?

 

Thinking Big

YOU CAN’T WORK WITH A FEW THOUSAND PEOPLE ON YOUR MAILING LISTS, YOU NEED TENS OF THOUSANDS, AND THEY HAVE TO BE BUYERS AND RECOMMENDERS, NOT RELATIVES AND PEOPLE YOU MET IN BUS STATIONS. MOST OF YOU ARE USING MICROSCOPES INSTEAD OF TELESCOPES. (OR YOU’RE LOOKING THROUGH THE WRONG END OF THE TELESCOPE.)

MY UNCLE ONCE THOUGHT HE SAW JUPITER THROUGH A TELESCOPE AND ASKED US TO LOOK. MY TEN-YEAR-OLD COUSIN AND I POINTED OUT THAT HE WAS LOOKING AT A STREET LIGHT, NOT THE PLANET, BUT AT LEAST HE WAS THINKING BIG. (THIS WAS BEFORE THEY TOOK HIM AWAY.)

COLUMBUS DIDN’T TRY TO STAY WITHIN SIGHT OF LAND (THEY HAD FOUND OUT ABOUT HIM AND ISABELLA). CORTES BURNED HIS SHIPS. (A GREAT STORY AFTER HIS CARELESS SMOKING.) CHURCHILL DIDN’T SMOKE SMALL CIGARS OR DRINK CHEAP WHISKEY. THE WILLIAMS SISTERS DON’T TRY TO HIT SOFT SHOTS, THEY TRY TO HIT THE BALL THROUGH THEIR OPPONENTS. SCROOGE McDUCK DIDN’T HAVE A WALLET, HE HAD A SIX-STORY, ONE SQUARE BLOCK VAULT. WILLIE SUTTON DIDN’T ROB CANDY STORES.

I COULD GO ON AND ON. AND SOMETIMES I DO. THAT’S BECAUSE I THINK BIG. AS A SOLO CONSULTANT I ATTRACTED BUSINESS WITH MERCK, JPMORGAN/CHASE, ANDERSON (OK, NOBODY’S PERFECT), THE FEDERAL RESERVE, HEWLETT-PACKARD, IBM, MERCEDES-BENZ, TOYOTA, STATE STREET BANK, THE GOVERNOR OF COLORADO, THE AMERICAN PRESS INSTITUTE—SEE, I CAN GO ON AND ON.

LISTEN, YOU WANT TO KEEP SELLING $15,000 PIECES OF BUSINESS? HAH! THAT’S WHAT IT COST FOR A DAY FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR AT DISNEYLAND. YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO BE STALLED WITH HR PEOPLE? YOU’D HAVE A BETTER CHANCE SELLING ESKIMOS TO SEALS. (THERE’S SOME METAPHOR THERE, BUT I’M TOO BUSY THINKING BIG.)

YOU NEED TO WALK INTO A JOINT, ANY JOINT, AND SAY, “GIVE ME THE BEST YOU’VE GOT!” (WELL, MAYBE NOT A BOXING CLUB, BUT YOU GET MY DRIFT.)

I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO THINK BIG AND ACT LARGER.

TRUST ME, THIS IS BIGGER THAN GLOBAL.

 

 

The fee is $3,500 for the two days. You cannot attend one-day only unless you pay the full fee. The fee goes up to $4,000 on September 1.
