But if you leave, then what?

Prevailing wisdom says you cannot be a prophet in your hometown. In this case, the hometown is Disney and Disney Institute (DI).

As a DI speaker, you are paid a couple hundred bucks a day. Everything else goes to the Organization. It’s the way it works. No harm, no foul. It’s clear and if you don’t like it, you can leave.

But if you leave, then what?

Real life in real time really truly comes to life.

Or not.

Depends on the person’s will to succeed and the value they bring.

Yesterday’s Fortune 150 client paid the going rate for a world-class (Disney) Keynote speech. If you’re not familiar, it starts at $16k and goes up from there. Call anyone who can offer such compelling content and request a quote for a (Disney) Keynote Speaker.

When you become the Organization, you skyrocket past a couple hundred.

It takes guts to ask for such a fee.

It takes a prophet to earn that fee.

The world has always become a better place by having courageous people do things that matter, in spite of their fear and doubt.

Yes, i’m talking to you. If you hate cubicle nation for any reason (and there’s a diverse list of reasons), get busy working on becoming the Organization. Become an entrepreneur.

It took over six years to earn my first dime, but it was a big dime.

i’m here to feed (for free) your desire to overcome those million obstacles and excuses you keep staring at.

Quickest way to get noticed at work is to leave

Imagine trying to find truth here

 

There is truth in the notion that you can’t be a prophet in your hometown.

It is often quicker to leave your organization, work elsewhere in a higher capacity (relative to your organization), and return to your original organization with a promotion that may never have happened otherwise.

It seems if someone else sees something in you that your original organization missed, now your original company is magically able to see it too.

Who Is jeff noel?

Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia…two days ago…

And he said, ” Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his own country”.

It’s a funny thing, being a deep thinker, my intuitive thoughts are mostly cast aside by others as crazy.

And I have to admit, it was extraordinarily painful. For years. More like a lifetime.

So in the put up or shut up test, I decided to take the test – press on and not look back.

But Don't You I Think I'm Special?

Remember that song by Marvin Gaye?

Same melody, different words….

Ain’t no prophet wise enough.

You’ll never be a prophet in your hometown.

Bummer.
