Today I’m rockin’ the mic with 3 other entrepreneurs: Kate Erickson (my other half), plus Jill & Josh Stanton from Screw the Nine to Five. Join us for an absolute blast of an episode all about creative ways to sell your knowledge without creating a course!
If you’re ready to create next level success in your life by sharing your existing knowledge through in-person trainings, virtual workshops, or masterminds, then check out Knowledge Broker Blueprint by Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi. It’s ON FIRE!
3 Value Bombs
1) Don’t be afraid of in-person. You can help people go so much faster by taking it offline
2) Your fear and imposter syndrome: you have to stop making it about you. When you flip the script and understand the power you can have on the people in the room, it’s about them.
3) It’s really about the internal game and facing those struggles – not the strategies and tactics and outer game. The how-to will come once you have the right mindset
