I’ve recently completed the Almost Free Workshop in Toronto to a sold-out crowd. I’m asked why I continue to provide these very low-investment opportunities, when I continually sell-out very high-priced offerings.
The reason is that I believe you give back to your profession and professional community, and that I continue to learn (or I would simply retire, travel, play with the dogs, and drive exotic cars). Here’s an example of what makes my life so fascinating. I have permission from this wonderful woman to share her story:
It was great to meet you and your wonderful community at the workshop today in Toronto.
I left an abusive marriage of 21 years with 5 children, one of whom has cerebral palsy. I didn’t have any money, so I went on welfare to support my children.
I have been following your work for 18 months now. I followed your free resources, watched your youtube videos and read your blogs. I started implementing your “marketing gravity ideas” one at a time.
With faith beyond my circumstances, and your amazing ideas, I had a radio station in South Africa find my content online, and they contacted me to be The Friday Motivational Girl for five million listeners. Tomorrow, they want to have a conference call to talk about launching my new book, Secret Strength, and doing workshops for women in Southern Africa
Life has opened up for me, and my future is brightly filled with promise, hope and success.
Thank you Alan for being a part of my journey,
