Wow! It’s all I can say about it. I’m not easily excited, and I’m incredibly excited to share with you what I observed at this event. I was deeply honored when Eric asked me to speak at his 2014 Go Pro event in November. When I say “deeply honored,” I really mean it. With speakers like Todd Falcone, Jordan Adler, Chris Brogan, Les Brown, Richard Brooke, Eric Worre, Harry Dent, Paul Pilzer, Kevin Harrington and the lovely Donna Johnson….I was by far the least qualified of the speakers. It’s like being chosen for the all-star team and I was happy to serve as best I could.
I was blown away. Eric Worre has really cracked the code. I’m not a sales kind of person, and if you’ve been reading my blog over the past several years, I never get excited and I never promote. I’m funny about what I do with your attention (which I value and appreciate very much). At this event, people were talking about ethics, integrity, character, trust…elevating network marketing by committing, as a unified community, to doing things right. There were countless companies represented, several thousand distributors from all across the world….and it was a safe environment for everyone. There was no recruiting! Distributors came together to learn about best practices, as a unified group.
This is one thing I appreciate about Eric: he’s not willfully ignorant. He’s not putting his head in the sand, ignoring the problems in network marketing while proclaiming its virtues. He honestly admits that there’s room for improvement, and he confronts those issues. In order to advance as a community, we’ve got to have an adult conversation about the challenges so we can figure out what we need to solve. At this event, speakers were talking about the importance of avoiding hype, the importance of income disclosures, the importance of transparency, honor, etc. As a professional that’s been beating on this drum for several years, it was very encouraging to witness.
I was not paid as a speaker. I do not get paid via ticket sales. There’s no “catch.” I’m promoting the next event because I think the value exceeds the price. I have no idea if I’ll be speaking at it next year. But I do know that I’ll be there. Companies are starting to SAVE money by NOT having a convention and sending their folks to this one. It’s a safe environment where people learn the basics and walk away with a lot more belief. If a client is unable to draw a decent audience for their own convention, I’m going to recommend that they simply send their folks to this one.
Plus, Tony Robbins is going to be there next year. TONY ROBBINS!
