You could probably guess where I am right now, but I’ll tell you anyway.
I’m in the airport. In the atlanta airport to be exact.
I had one heckuva weekend in Miami coaching and fielding querstions
and advice. I was trying to be as specifically vague as possible
Many people forget that I get paid a very pretty penny for my advice.
That leads me to my next point.
I’ve been told that I’m nice. Sometime too nice. I guess that’s my
weakness at times.
I made a huge error that I will FIX immediately. I made an error that
I coach people on in business all the time. And as a matter of fact my
business mentor kicked me in the rear about making this business
mistake before and I did it again. Ask me why and my reply won’t be
any better than why I can’t find my wallet and keys every time I’m
ready to head out the door.
I swear my wallet and keys have made me late for church more than
(As I digress….LOL let’s get back to the story).
Like I said I’ve been told and I will tell you.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER enter into a relationship without a written
agreement. No matter how sweet the deal is. At the end of the day you
will be left holding the towel and the baby oil.
As my friend Inga Willis says, “if you are cool enough to do business
without it, you are cool enough to do business with it.”
It Just keeps things clear and stops people from being delusional.
When you coach people, before your process is done, hell, when it
starts clients will become ornery, super-confident and empowered. Why?
Well, they now know things that they didn’t know before so now the
world looks so different to them. They don’t understand the coaching
process, the doling out of information, or the method to the perceived
madness. But when you have been doing this as long as I have at such a
high level, with multiple successes, you’ve doggone near seen or have
But I understand its a process. Nobody misses water when the well is
full. You only miss the water when the well runs dry.
Its kinda like that person who is talking sh– while they are riding
in your car until you pull over and tell them to get out. LOL
Remember this my dear friends…. “Just when you think you’ve ‘got it’
is the precise moment when you really don’t. Kinda like when you feel
the fish nibbling on the bait but he aint on the hook. You think you
got ‘em, but you really don’t. IT JUST FEELS LIKE YOU DO!” If it were
that easy, we’d all be fishing on ESPN. ;-)
I say it all the time…. “The eyes can ONLY see what the mind can comprehend.”
Many of you read about my life and what I do and I’m telling you right
now that I make mistakes and I have people who kick me in my backside
to get me in gear just like I kick yours in some of my emails and
Now speaking of getting in gear……..
TOMORROW is the big day.
At 12:01am I will open up the floodgates on my coaching program.
I’m only letting 7 people in the door.
I just can’t help everybody, but I will help you.
If you wanna get in please go here and read very carefully )))
Take care and remember, everybody makes mistakes, don’t you make this one.
