I know you are busy during the month of December. ¬†You’re probably getting ready for the end of the year and getting ready for next year. ¬†To help you get a great start to the new year, below are three New Year Boosting events that are happening in the next couple weeks.
December 7 @ 3:00pm EST. ¬†In October, Kathy Mallary and I did our first Crazy-Ass Marketing Ideas call. ¬†We got so much positive feedback and so many different people asking us to do it again, we’ve decided to do just that. ¬†Only this time, we’re asking YOU to bring your most Crazy-Ass Marketing Idea so we can help you get it into action. ¬†It’s an hour of opposites. ¬†We’re going to show you how doing the opposite of what most marketing gurus would tell you to do will actually get you better results. ¬†You can click through to register for updates about the call by visiting http://www.coachesmarketingsource.com/crazymarketingideas.
December 15 at 1:00pm EST. On this call, I’ll be interviewed by Leah Shapiro, Kick-Ass Life Coach. ¬†If you feel like the whole “do it the way you’re told” thing is getting old and not working anymore (which it usually doesn’t work) then it’s time for a new way of looking at things. ¬†Fly your freak flag and watch the money roll in. ¬†We’ll talk about how and why this works on the call. ¬†You can register at¬†http://defythebox.com/BreakFree/flying-your-freak-flag-builds-trust/.
December 15 @ 4:00pm EST. ¬†What if you didn’t have to create MORE marketing projects in order to increase cash flow? ¬†Find out the dirty little secret that’s holding you back from getting coaching clients. ¬†In this FR*EE call, I will be sharing how I create my business life to include marketing without having it overwhelm me (and NO it doesn’t include delegating more work). ¬†If you’re fed up with all the time you spend marketing, then this call is for you. ¬†Register for this call and the recording at http://www.coachesmarketingsource.com/stopmarketingcall.html.
Entire Month of December -¬†I challenge you to take the last week of December off from marketing. ¬†That’s right, the Marketing Mentor is advising you NOT to do any marketing for a week. ¬†To help ¬†you do this, I’ve posted a calendar to help you at ¬†http://www.coachesinternetmarketingsource.com/no-marketing-for-coaches-last-week-of-december-2011.
Enjoy the month of December and please share each of these events with 2 other people you think could benefit.

Group Coaching Mastery - This is coming up in August and I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for any coach who is looking to expand their service offerings into group coaching.¬† Not only that, this course offers powerful marketing tools to get your group coaching program off the ground.¬† Wendy Y. Bailey is a referral partner of mine and I’m going to be taking this course in August so I can get to know the program better and I suspect I will learn a huge amount about group coaching in the process.
If you’ve been wanting to start a group coaching program to expand your income, then join me in August and learn everything there is to the know from the Queen of Group Coaching.¬† Register at http://www.groupmasterycalls.com/enroll.
As you may know, I was out for the last two weeks as I attended Marketing to Millionaires and did some networking on the west coast.¬† It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful I decided to embark on this journey.¬† Although, I don’t think my brain has ever been so crammed full of information to process before!
First of all, at Marketing to Millionaires I got to meet some amazing people that I had only known via the internet and had a phone call or two with.¬† Meeting in person really made those relationships stronger and cemented several that will be long-lasting.¬† Not to mention, I met a lot of new people that I am now continuing to build relationships with.
Kelly taught us a lot about marketing to the affluent.¬† It’s a whole different ball game from the mass marketing that we all learned when we started our businesses.¬† It’s a different way of thinking when communicating with this group.¬† It also takes a much higher level of investment in the relationship.¬† I am now completely rethinking how I work with my current clients and how I will attract new clients as a result of this training.¬† Not only that, I have new positioning for my business and I’ll be rewriting my website content soon (stay tuned for more on this!).¬† It’s all VERY exciting!¬† For once in my career, I feel like I know exactly what I need to do to achieve what I want.¬† It’s awesome!
After the event, I arranged some time to meet up with others who weren’t attending.¬† I took my Project Manager, Carrie, with me so that she could meet one of our clients that she manages and others.¬† It was awesome to meet all these people in person.¬† I think we really strengthened our relationship with the client!¬† As for my other friends/colleauges it was great to meet up with them in person and find out what’s up with them.¬† I was also introduced to some amazing new people that I will continue to keep in contact with.
Oh, and then there was the day I was able to meet with my brother.¬† I only get to see¬† him once a year usually, and this year I got to see him twice!¬† It was great to hike in the woods, shoot a bow and arrow, and visit with his new furry friends at the house.
Needless to say, I truly enjoyed my trip. Now, I’m beginning to implement the strategies I learned from Kelly and I’m following up with the amazing contacts I made.¬† I now know that these kinds of events are totally worth it from a learning and networking standpoint.¬† I’ve grown HUGELY over the last two weeks and I have a commitment to my business that I’ve never had before.¬† If for no other reason, this was worth it!
Have you been to an event like this?¬† How has it changed your relationships and/or business?
It’s fall and there are lots of business building events for coaches and other life changes going.¬† Several great ones are coming up Thursday that I feel would be helpful to many of you, so I’m posting them here for your convenience.¬† If you have others that are appropriate for the life changing community, leave a comment for approval and we’ll see if fits to add yours to the list.
