Be brave enough to inspire yourself

Be brave enough to inspire yourself.

Given the choice, why wouldn’t we?

Fear?

The unknown.

Uncertainty.

Pain?

Find a million ways.

For example, one (of the million) way i do it: recalling the three days with Dana, Christopher, Will (then 4) and Christopher’s two teenagers from a prior marriage.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Fail like it’s day one.

Day one?

Yes.

The day you officially became a company.

Run your company like you’re hungry to succeed beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.

Like you were on day one.

What does being brave mean if we reserve it only for special occasions?

This would make me ill. And i’m so grateful for this fact.

 

Disney Keynote Speaker
Surreal. Comes with the territory. Pretty crazy for an introvert.

 

What does being brave mean if we reserve it only for special occasions? Or it’s reserved until we are forced to be brave? What then?

Only one way in and i almost didn’t take it

Trilogy Health Service
While waiting for an Omni Convention Concierge employee to return with the Omni Convention Director’s business card, i scanned Trilogy’s website.

Only one way to get to this place…open the door and walk in.

Michael Jr travels with a camera crew sometimes?

 

Omni Louisville
Best Hotel in town? Maybe.

 

Only one way into the room where laughter from 600 people was emanating.

And i almost didn’t take it.

It’s not that i refuse to do these… #thinkdifferently

It’s not that i refuse to do these or that i don’t see the value; however, i don’t do any of them.

Blogging is supposed to lead to traffic and traffic is supposed to create a funnel from which your business will flow. Makes sense, so almost everyone does these standard recipe-for-success tactics:

1. Have an email subscription sign up for a newsletter or blog
2. Entice sign-ups with a CTA (call to action) using a free asset give-away.
3. Use videos
4. Do not share your prices publicly
5. Have a slick website with lots of bells and whistles
6. Freely share your best content
7. Automate your social media sharing

So how did that play out in the first year of Disney retirement? If the only metric we use is revenue (because it’s typical), it was the best year of my life.

i only preach what i practice. And i preach to people who don’t want to be the best in their category, they want to become the category.

Sure it’s risky. But so is following the herd.

PS. i blog a lot (13k posts since 2009), but i don’t do it to drive business. On my speaker site, it’s almost impossible to find my blog. Why? Because it’s a personal blog.
