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.

Just signed an $800K engagement.  My focus for the past 6 weeks has been industries positively impacted by Covid. This client has increased growth by 27% since Covid.

I conducted a pro-bono engagement with a regional hospice health care system, which I commenced two weeks ago. They serve about a hundred patients with two dozen nurses and caregivers, and were spendi

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....

Fantastic! That's the profit margin indicator we should all focus on!

Add my congratulations Paul.

Newton invented calculus and his theory of gravity while in isolation from Cambridge when an outbreak of bubonic plague was ravaging England.

There is never a negative environment only the opportunity of the current circumstances. 
 

Fortunately those of us is In the forum see how we can multiply any situation for the client’s benefit.

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.

My biggest win - and this is a long time coming - I have started having al lmy prospect meetings by Zoom (instead of phone) and it is working much better.

For example, Met yesterday with husband and wife, wife zoomed in from home, and it worked extremely well and got the verbal yes from both of them after we discussed fees.

This is one of those thing I should have done  years ago when Alan first told us to not sell by phone. I kept selling by phone because it worked, but zoom works  better.
