Her Meetup - www.markandshannonlive.com

Only 9 People Showed Up To Her Meetup…But Then!

Only 9 People Showed Up To Her Meetup…But Then!

 

Shannon here to help you overcome your #1 biggest “Speaking Worry”. After helping 1000’s of Conscious Speakers just like you – Mark and I know that if you’re not yet making $10,000 a month – this worry can be overwhelming and causing debilitating fear.  

 

“But what if only a few people show up?!”

 

Which is why I want to introduce you to one of our Big Impact University students, meet Robin Treasure. Before Robin’s Meetup, she told us that only a few people signed up – and it was driving her nuts. What if only a few people show up? How can I “Rock My Talk” to less than 10 people?!

Listen closely to what you’re about to read, because it will open your mind to the deep power of speaking (and why it’s the absolute fastest way to grow your conscious business).

Speaking is the most powerful way to attract high paying clients. It is the only way for your Tribe to see YOU in your power. An email? A blog post? An article? A Facebook post? Even a video – they are all non-human interactions. And for your Tribe to fully experience YOU – they need to be at your rocking talk.

Back to Robin. Yes, only 9 people showed up to her talk. BUT – because they showed up to her Signature Talk – 7 signed up for her strategy sessions!

7…out of 9! Only speaking can deliver those kind of HOT and JUICY results.

Now, tell me in the comments below:

What will YOU speak about THIS WEEK?

 

You can do it! We believe in you,

Mark & Shannon

Wait, Steve Jobs…Is a Conscious SPEAKER?

Wait, Steve Jobs…Is a Conscious SPEAKER?

 

Mark here with an insight to rock your world today.

When most people think of Steve Jobs, they think iPhone, changing the world, big tech company, massive success, India, LSD and the Mac.

Obviously – all that is true. But the Big Impact that Steve Jobs manifested started with and continued because of ONE strategy he used.

Apple began when Steve Jobs spoke at a local college-tech Meetup. Yes, a small Meetup (read that one more time).

And how did Steve Jobs continue to build his momentum and Big Impact? He SPOKE. He spoke on stage, year after year after year. That was his big secret. All the momentum of his movement to inspire creativity happened through speaking.

The headlines on magazines, newspapers, TV and eventually Hollywood – all came through Steve Jobs’ talks on stages.

So if there’s one thing you’re going to do this week – I BEG YOU, for the sake of YOUR Big Impact – just focus on SPEAKING on small stages. That’s it.

Look how our Big Impact University students have started to generate HOT results…just by speaking!

How SPEAKING saved me from personal tragedy

How SPEAKING saved me from personal tragedy

 

 

Mark here with a deeply personal story to help you take your message to the next level. This isn’t easy to share on a blog, but I want you to know how far I’ve come thanks to speaking.

Before I met Shannon, I was married for 8 years. And about 1 year into my marriage, I was leading a seminar and got a call from my (former) wife. She was crying in hysterics and just found out her dad died of a heart attack.

By the time I went to see her, she had received a 2nd call that her mom was admitted to the hospital with advanced stage breast cancer. She died 109 days later.

Needless to say, we were devastated and although we tried to make it work, over the years, our marriage just fell apart.  The death of my in-laws & the complexity of keeping a broken marriage together was too much… I felt broken and just trying to make each day the best it could be. Then we divorced.

 

What Life Is Like When You’re Not Speaking

 

I wasn’t speaking or following my calling. I wasn’t doing yoga or hiking… In fact, I had gained almost 40lbs… I was having a really hard time, alone with nothing but my thoughts.

Having worked as a Senior Branding Consultant for Clear Channel, the largest communications company in the world and consulting clients like Marriott, AFLAC, Porshe & Wells Fargo, I knew how important a brand was… but couldn’t quite land on who my ideal clients were. I was spinning my wheels trying to figure out my niche.

I spent 7 YEARS spinning my wheels having developed 11 different iterations of my brand… none of which was an authentic expression of my essence. I was beginning to think… I don’t have what it takes. Maybe I should just go back to Corporate and get a J.O.B.  But the thought of that made me cringe.

I was isolating, depressed and realized I was out of integrity because I wasn’t following my spiritual practice or speaking… I was miserable.

 

I couldn’t take it anymore and finally, I took control of my life.

 

I mean, I had ran branding campaigns that resulted in $4M of revenue, worked with 6 figure marketing budgets, wrote and produced 1000’s of Radio Commercials, over 200 seminars with the top name leaders in our industry – so why was I having such a struggle?

I remember crying in the mirror… and saying to myself, “Mark you’re out of integrity… You’re not walkin’ your talk.” It was in that moment, that I took back control of my life:

I got back into my daily yoga practice, got back to studying ‘A Course in Miracles’… both of which I had been studying for 15 years. And… I hired a spiritual mentor. I started speaking and was committed to following my calling.

So how did we START? How did we generate 6 figures in our first event and $400,000 in our first 10 months from scratch?

 

BY SPEAKING!

 

The reason speaking helped me was for the following deep reasons:

  • Speaking put me out there (instead of staying home pondering my options)
  • Speaking allowed me to HELP others
  • Speaking wasn’t rocket science (you can get up in front of 4 people at a Meetup, this isn’t like putting a man on the moon!)
  • Speaking connected me to a Higher Source
  • Speaking focused me on my purpose
  • Speaking…attracts clients!

 

Share with me in the comments how my story helped you, it would mean a lot to me.

OUR HOT KISS UNDER A WATERFALL - www.markandshannonlive.com

Our HOT kiss under a waterfall

Our HOT kiss under a waterfall

 

Shannon here and I just HA’AVE to tell you the exciting news:

Mark’s taking me to Thailand and Bali!  

When we first started out – we struggled to pay rent. When we first started out, we struggled to afford anything fun on a weekend (soul crushing, I know). And that was ONLY because we weren’t speaking enough.

Then we used our SYSTEM, spoke to small groups – and BAM!  We’re now living our wildest (and HOTTEST!) dreams. Ever since I was a girl I wanted to be kissed under a waterfall by my King – and now look at that HOT pic!

It’s all possible with Speaking my friend. I just wanted to update you on the exciting news that Mark’s taking me to Thailand & Bali this month – we’re going to ride elephants, go to the Tiger Sanctuary and explore Spiritual Temples… if my dreams can come true – SO CAN YOURS!

…you just need to start speaking to small groups.

We’ll put up some juicy pics on our Facebook page (so make sure to ‘like’ us on FB and we’ll give you extra ‘speaker goodies’ too!) from the trip.

In the meantime – let me know in the comments now:
