Wins in the Covid Crisis

Recommended Posts

Paula, if you want to do this rapidly and well, use Word. Insert photos or graphics as needed. I'd say 30-50 pages, with a color "cover." Keep in mind you might want to use it in hard copy sometime. What do you mean by "distribution"? Do you mean to whom to send it, or how to send it? The latter seems self-evident.

This thread probably belongs on a different board, it's not really related to virus victories.

I have 12 coaching calls today, they average 20-30 minutes. Eight of them are with people who never before engaged with me. I've also completed, after two weeks, a 35-page proposal for a new book on Legacy, including the sample chapter, to send to two new agents.

I'm having one of my best Marches ever. I'm not bragging. I'm telling you what's possible if you innovate new services, overcome doubts and "no money" syndrome, and are fearless in approaching others.

I've also built four models, improved my train layout, and read four books. I don't want to tell you how much I've drunk.

Oh, yeah: And two livestream events, two Sentient Zoom training certifications and one Zoom feature for the Forums.

For the month of March I have a total of $85 in cash business expenditures, which is the lowest in my 44 years of consulting.

I think that, opposed to many of us here, you’re not taking advantage of these times to invest in your own self development!

You pay cash for your own self-development? Jesus saves, but Moses invests....

Add my congratulations Paul.

Paul, could you see Million Dollar Consulting® as an online course?

Hi Alan,

Absolutely in terms of high level fundamental requirements of consulting. Whether it's a course or a growth experience I feel that a 12 week process would be beneficial to those wanting to move from $0-$100K.

Here's what I did in the past for speakers...

That's a high level overview of a process from my personal experience. It's a 9 week experience from the top down.

However, it's content and cannot get into detailed context produced by each individual's specific situation.

Back to Million Dollar Consulting. Taking the book and making it a course would be advantageous in terms of increased income, but more importantly a greater number of personal clients. 

The workshops and teleconferences in Growth Access could be applied to various frameworks like above - resulting in instant "courses."

Roberta ,

This particular work is for a company looking to prepare and position to sell. Top line of $500M. 

The primary focus is helping the owner elevate the 7 value drivers in order to sell for a maximum multiple. This company needs to focus on customer concentration, defendable financials and owner independence. 

The agreement is for 12 months with a 6 month extension if needed. The goal is to go to market in 18 months.
