Dear Son

Every CEO gets to take a stand or waver

Goals quote
Things only become sayings or cliches if they are true. From LinkedIn yesterday.

 

The event planner left a voice message yesterday saying my price was too high for her client, even though i offered two discounts. (one for 100% advance payment, the other for contracting a second, future, engagement simultaneously.

One standard $3,500 discount for 100% advance payment, and another $2,000 for what i creativity labeled “seed discount”; a goodwill gesture anticipating future bookings.

The $2,000 seed discount would be added back into the second contract, so it’s technically not a discount – more like a short-term loan to help them meet short-term budget constraints for the first booking.

i love being able to talk about price integrity with conviction and commitment.

The real client – the event planner’s client – wants an amazing Disney speaker for a half-day leadership engagement for her association’s 27-member statewide board of directors.

She’ll find less expensive options.

i’m a firm believer you get what you pay for.

What justifies a price we are willing to pay?

Personal Trainer rates
i asked Charles for this yesterday.

 

What justifies a price we are willing to pay?

  • Expertise?
  • Trust?
  • Comfort?
  • Style?
  • Reputation?
  • Results?
  • Exemplification?

All that plus this:

How badly does the prospect want to change?

And if they are pro-change, where do they what to land?

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Fantastic

Blurred photo from Disney Leadership class
We had many moments like this one, yesterday.

 

Fantastic.

Every time i speak, i listen for the words people use when they say something to me afterwards.

There is a big difference in word choice and i’m only listening for one category of words.

i find solace in hearing words that revolve around yesterday’s key word choice – fantastic.

Note: When people say “that was really good”, i failed.
