I have been in the marketing my business online for many years. I have always been the one who never went to the Live Events. I thought the live events were not important because I “work from home”. The funny part is that live events are absolutely necessary to take your business to the next level.
My mentor have always told me that going to the Live Events is not an option, but a requirement. His explanation was that until I go to Live Events my online marketing business would be a hobby and not a real business. I have put off that tasks off for over 5 years and when Empower Network was coming to Orlando for a Regional Event I knew I could not miss that one. I had to make a few plans to make it happen, but I knew in the end it would be worth it. I did not go with a preconception of what was going to happen. I just went with an open mind and a blank page.
I was immediately inflicted with the energy of the room. When you have that many like minded individuals in one room it is very easy to be drawn into the power of the mastermind. The synergy of the room is dynamic and gets stronger by the minute. There were a unique variation of people at the live event. The power of that mastermind matters because once you go back to the “real world” it is that experience that will empower you.
Live Events make you realize that there is no time like too present to get off your butt and go to work. You are looking at people on stage saying to yourself that if he or she can do it I know without a doubt that I can do it.Rhoda Swan talked about the vow that she made to her daughter and doing everything in her power to never break that promise. When you hear about that type of commitment and dedication, it is very difficult to not get overfilled with enthusiasm. As I discussed in my blog earlier Enthusiasm is a “vital moving force that impels action”. John Levenia discussed the acronym “I.A.S.M” which stands for “I am sold myself” and coincidentally is the last four letters of the word enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is contagious, but it is self-control that will take your business to the next level.
I have taken a complete one eighty on my opinion about Live Events. These events are truly the rejuvenation that is necessary to keep you on point in your work from home business. When you work from home, it is easy to get tunnel vision. You are only aware of your daily mode of operandi and nothing else. It is much better to be in a room when joint venture, friendships, and ideas could develop. I have now made a commitment to make as many Live Events as possible.
