The law of NO attachment

The law of NO attachment

 

Mark here with a glorious and delicious Law of the Universe to share with you, my friend.

I call it…..

The Law of No Attachment.
The more attached you are to an outcome, the more painful reality becomes.

You have to be filled with an awesome sense of purpose, vision and strategy – and yet simultaneously not get attached to the outcome.

THAT’s when you’re free.

Then you’re playful.

Then you’re learning, loving and growing at a RAPID pace.

There have been a lot of times where Shannon and I thought someone was a super hot potential client, only to see them turn out to be completely out of alignment with us.

Another time we felt someone was not at all connected to us – and they turned out to be one of our best success stories (and now close friends, too!)

It’s important to be aware of this law to allow yourself greater freedom and fun in your Big Impact journey. Then the energy runs super smooth.

Imagine what it’ll be like when you can have as much fun when people say NO as when they say YES!

Think Dalai Lama – if someone walks out on his talk – I’m sure he’s not beating himself up about it.

He’s embodied the law of no attachment.

Now it’s time for us to rock it too.

Inspire us my friend:

How Can You Use The Law of No Attachment This Week?

When we went Cake Tasting…

When we went Cake Tasting…

 

Hey Guys,

Mark here with a great story for you that can help you increase your income and impact THIS WEEK

When we were planning our wedding, Shannon and I went cake tasting.

And WOW we met the most amazing cake decorator.

Her genius zone is making cakes – she’s like the Steve Jobs of cakes…

OMG, these cakes are A-MA-ZING!!

So we started talking with her, asking her all about her business – which was limited.

She had limited income, because she was only doing 1 on 1’s, not growing and not earning what she could be.

So we told her about speaking to grow her business, that she can speak to local women…

She said, I’m an ‘ok speaker… I’ve got this down “one on one” – but I’m not that good of a speaker,’ meaning – she COULD grow her business, inspire more people, make way more money and take off more time – but she wasn’t.

Because she was worried that she “ wasn’t a good speaker.”

Well – here’s a little secret…

 

You don’t have to be a ‘good’ speaker!!! 

 

All you have to do is BE YOURSELF.  

 

If you’re authentically you… and you know your clients’ wants, needs and desires, you’ll WOW your crowd!

EVERY time.

Comment below how can you be even MORE Authentic with your Tribe?

 

Nothing is more courageous than being vulnerable. Be courageous, share yourself and inspire the living daylights out of the Big Impact Tribe 🙂

Should I build a website - www.markandshannonlive.com

Should you BUILD a Sexy WEBSITE?

Should you BUILD a Sexy WEBSITE?

 

Mark here to answer a question you’ve probably asked yourself on several occasions: should you build a sexy website or spend more time speaking??

To appreciate the answer (and you will) – meet one of our clients…

Brody Boyd, one of our Rock Star clients, told us how he was following one of those online gurus for 2 years….2 YEARS!!!

After going through aforementioned guru’s courses and all that complicated info… guess how much Brody earned?

2 years….$200.

TWO.

HUNDRED.

DOLLARS.

It hurts my soul to hear that!

A brilliant change agent with a transformational message is struggling to make enough money for a cup of coffee?!

It’s wrong – and we’re here to change all that – so you can make your Big Impact in this world, get paid well for your services – and become a true Rock Star.

Ok, so let’s play a little game: What do Martin Luther King, Marianne Williamson, Steve Jobs, & Eckhart Tolle have in common?

 

THEY’RE ALL SPEAKERS!

 

Speakers are leaders, and leaders are speakers.

This means that if you’re not speaking, you are leaving behind BUCKETS of money on the table.  Because all those leaders began their movements – not with sexy websites, facebook ads, webinars, blogging or SEO – all those leaders began their movements with SPEAKING.  

Did you know that Marianne Williamson started speaking to very small groups in her own backyard?  

Steve Jobs spoke at a local college-tech meetup.

And Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at his small Church.

Speaking is all you need to start your movement…TODAY.

Speaking is the fastest way to grow your business, make a difference, get a FLOOD of adoring, ideal clients who pay you what you deserve… and ultimately, change the world.

So if you’ve been worried, thinking that the only way to generate high end clients by having some super-complicated online ‘sales funnels’ with SEO, autoresponder series, youtube optimization, facebook ads…

Well, that’s just bullshit.

Yes, there’s time & place for all that – but not until you’re at least earning a consistent $10,000 a month (more on that later).

Think about it – if you’re fussing around with opt-in conversion rates and facebook custom audiences – and you’re not even clear on your core message or your niche – it just won’t work.

Those are all for a specific PHASE of Business.  But you’ve got to be crystal clear about your message and know who you’re marketing TO, in order for your marketing to work.

Share with the Tribe… What Topic Are You MOST Excited to Speak On?

Why Your NICHE Feels Like a Bitch

Why Your NICHE Feels Like a Bitch

Mark here with some insight about why your NICHE is such a bitch… and what you can do about it.

Your niche is serving a specific group people with a specific problem.

Why is it so is important to land on your niche and serve the people you’re really called to serve? Because when you do, everything about your business starts to make sense.
Simple right?

Well for me (and many other Visionaries) my niche was such a bitch.. I wrestled with it for 7 YEARS! I had 11 different iterations… including a website and funnel to go with each one. It was overwhelming and of course, I wasn’t attracting clients.

You know the drill. You go to training after training, and you’re still struggling.
You have some kind of flabby niche, but as you engage with clients, you start to make distinctions, and then you start tweaking. And pretty soon you’re tweaking constantly.

You run your latest tweak by your other business friends who haven’t landed on their niche either. And they’re like, “Yeah, great! Go for it!”

Is that a great idea?

Don’t bother answering. WE KNOW! It’s like the blind leading the blind — round and round the merry-go-round.

Once you go down that road, you make so many distinctions that you “distinct” yourself right out of effectiveness.

And that SUCKS!

So we want to show you how to make the RIGHT distinctions. The kind that get you crystal clear on your business so you stop spinning your wheels.

Ready to get off the merry-go-round?
