Thought Leadership Conference

We had a fifth consecutive year of sold-out crowd at Thought Leadership at the Four Seasons in Palm Beach. James Carville was my special guest. Twenty-eight consultants from seven countries gathered for three days of intensive interaction to build dominance in markets, create new books, generate new intellectual property, and meet global leaders.

Next year’s session with my special guest, the Master of Influence, Robert Cialdini, can be found here—I have only seven seats left: http://summitconsulting.com/seminars/the-thought-leadership-symposium-2015-10.php

Call for Volunteers

NOTE: Please contact the address at the end of this request, not me, thanks, Alan:

 

Solo (or 1-3 person) service business owners : (speakers, consultants, architects, attorneys, massage therapists, hair stylists, manicurists, personal trainers, IT consultants, HR consultants, nutritionists, image consultants, and similar)

 

Are you great at what you do, but not so comfortable with the financial side of your business?

Have you ever hired a bookkeeper and wished you could get more guidance from them?

If so, we may have a great opportunity for you.

 

We’re looking for 1-2 special service business owners to join us on a life-changing business journey.  You might have heard how some businesses are chosen to become case studies that college students and their professors use to learn consulting on in their MBA programs.

This is a similar volunteer opportunity within a training program for accountants that is designed to help them move from bookkeepers and tax preparers to true business advisors.  The accountants will be learning how to help their clients on three fronts:

  1. Better accounting systems,
  2. Financial mastery, and
  3. Increased financial prosperity.

What we’ll be doing

We’ll be reviewing your accounting setup, systems, and financial files and providing you with state of the art suggestions that will help you reduce your accounting costs, increase your business decision-making, and improve profits.   We will be helping you implement what you agree to.  All of this will be at no charge to you, including the first year of any licenses we purchase on your behalf.  All of this will be supervised by a CPA and no student will touch your books directly but they will see the numbers.

What we need you to do and agree to

We’ll be asking you to share your financial information with the individuals in the class.  We can keep you anonymous in name if you’d like, and we’ll be asking students to sign an NDA.  We’ll also be asking you to join us on the webinars and provide your feelings about how we are to work with, what you think about our suggestions, and more.

We’d like to work with you for at least a 3-month period.  Some of the things we’ll be discussing are whether your accounting system is the best fit for your business, if your chart of accounts and other classifications are optimized, how to read your financial statements better, and how to set up budgeting if you haven’t already.

If you feel frustrated with your current accounting system or your numbers, you are the perfect candidate for this.

To find out more or to apply

Email support@sandismith.com for an interview/application.    We will only be taking 1-2 people and this is first come first served, so don’t wait.  Reach out now before this opportunity disappears.

What? Who’s Where?

Beware, the Who’s Who scam is back with us lately, telling you you’ve “qualified” to be listed, meaning that you have enough money to buy the book they produce. Who’s Who books and listings with rare exception are ego-oriented nonsense. I placed my dog, Trotsky, in one, once. That’s how strict the vetting is!

The Power of Personal Worth and Fulfillment

There are 10 days remaining for the deep discounts for this series beginning in September. It comprises very brief videos, podcasts, and electronic print techniques and boosters each week to continually build and nurture self-esteem.

I’ve found that poor self-worth is the primary reason for less success in one’s endeavors than one’s talents should provide. People allow themselves to be “beaten down,” fall prey to peer pressure, and accept all kinds of unsolicited and destructive feedback.

Esteem can atrophy, like a muscle. This is your weekly strength training. For what amounts to almost pennies per item, receive these three boosts and pragmatic insights weekly. You’ll find the improvement in your self-image and your performance amazing.

You can see videos and details as well as register here:

New WOLFoundation Essay Competition

We are pleased to announce that entries are now open for the 2014 WOLFoundation essay competition.

 Whether it relates to environmental degradation, personal privacy, the functioning, or otherwise, of our democratic processes and many other issues, many people feel that we are suffering from an almost global crisis of leadership. An inability to break out of the status quo to enable societies to address some of the growing social and environmental issues that we all face.

The theme of this year’s competition is: Leadership: What are the characteristics of effective leadership in the 21st century?

We encourage entrants to focus on the nature of leadership itself rather than the specific issues that leaders should be addressing.

Visit our Guidelines page for more details about this year’s competition.

Please share this email with any of your friends, colleagues and organizations that may have an interest in participating.

Gray

We look forward to receiving your entries.

All best wishes

Joe Zammit-Lucia
