February: How to Powerfully Communicate About Your Business
Seminar Intention: “How to powerfully and effectively communicate what you do in any situation, no matter who you are speaking with, what you are doing, or where you are”
The information that we are covering in this Seminar is on a very unique aspect of Business that is rarely taught.
Did you know that 80% of communication is non-verbal? What that means is that there are multiple things going on that effect the effectiveness of our communications
It’s inside this 80% where you can unlock a tremendous amount of potential in how effective your communications are in and around your business. Knowing this information is critical for business owners and unfortunately, it’s not often taught.
It’s up to you to create an opening in a conversation and turn that conversation into an opportunity for business. In a matter of seconds a person that you are talking with will either become interested; or they will move on with their day. How that interaction goes is entirely up to you!
During this Seminar, we will be working on how you can improve on all the aspects of your verbal and physical communication skills. In today’s digital world the art of verbal & physical communication is rapidly fading.
Many of the people who have participated in this seminar reported back, that they had produced more leads and closed more sales directly from using the tools they learned during this seminar.
March: Expand Your Capacity, Expand Your Business
Seminar Intention: “That you uncover what your current capacity is, and understand how it’s affecting the growth and consistency of your business”
There is a particular distinction that allows businesses to rapidly expand… and that distinction is called “Capacity”.
For example, if you have a glass of water that only holds 8 oz. then can it hold 10 oz.? Obviously no it can’t, it can only hold 8 oz.
See many business owners have been trying to fit 10 oz. of Money, 10 oz. of Customers, or 10 oz. of staff into their 8 oz. glass. Then you get upset when it does not fit!
If you try to fit more than 8 oz. in your glass, what happens is it spills over and makes a mess…, which is what happens to many business owners as they are trying to grow their business.
Throughout this seminar, you will uncover where your Mental Capacity, Emotional Capacity and Physical Capacity have been diminished, and you will see how that is holding you back from being able to take your business to that next level and keeping it there!
During this seminar on Capacity, we actually expand your cup so that it can hold a tremendous amount more.

April: Balance & Success
Seminar Intention: “That you see how your relationship to balance directly affects your ability to have a consistent & successful business”
Do you produce great results in your business one month, but then the next you can’t produce a result to save your life?
Do you achieve a goal, and then realize that you have sacrificed your wellbeing to achieve it?
Have you noticed that you are starting to lose that zest and excitement for building your business?
Is there a certain point that you have just not been able to pass, as if you have hit a ceiling?
All of this is a symptom of not having enough Balance in different areas of your Business & Personal life.
This seminar has been 7 years in the making; and during this seminar, you will get to the source of what is causing these experiences to show up in your business.
In the “Balance & Success” Seminar, we will be working with the distinction “Balance” in a totally new way. I will show you how to integrate balance through different structures so that your business can consistently thrive and your personal life can consistently thrive as well!

Seminar Intention: “That you have access to authentic motivation, by connecting your businesses growth to the experiences in life that you are committed to having.”
I would like to personally invite you to a very special Seminar. The topic is on “Motivation – a Life by Design”. Authentic motivation is a critical element in the sustained success of every business owner.
A powerful way to cultivate authentic motivation is by having your businesses financial goal, intimately tied to the experiences of life that you are truly committed to.
In this Seminar, we are going to have a very direct conversation about your future and what you really…no kidding want to have in your future, in all 7 areas of your life. Then I am going to show you how to tie each area back to your businesses financial goal.
Motivation is key in building a successful business. We need motivation to get us through the tough parts and to keep our head in the game. Knowing “why” we are doing all this is critical to our success.

July: Building & Developing New Revenue Streams
Seminar Intention: “That you leave with a basic understanding of what a broad-based business model is, and with an understanding of how it can impact the stability of your current businesses revenue”
You may be asking yourself, …what is a Broad Based Business?
A Broad Based Business means that you have 4-5 separate but synergistic revenue streams all bringing money into your business.
Business guru’s and business experts have been talking about this business model for years.
You wouldn’t put all your retirement money into one single stock would you? No… you would diversify and put your money in many different areas. Your business is the same way; you want to have money coming in from several different areas.
By applying the Broad Based Business model, to your existing business it will allow you to create “consistent revenue” month after month, and have your revenue be “stable” year after year, which will allow you to thrive in any economic condition.

November: Powerfully Completing Your Year
Seminar Intention: “To powerfully complete 2013”
Novembers Seminar is actually a 2-part Seminar.
Our Annual Planning Seminars are broken down over 2 seminars. (Powerfully Completing your Year & Consciously Creating your New Year). These 2 seminars complement one another and build on one another. You don’t have to participate in both, you can do just one or the other but to get the maximum value you will want to look at doing both of them.
Novembers Seminar (Part 1) is all about “Powerfully Completing Your Year”!
Most business owners don’t complete their previous year’s major events. So when the New Year rolls around you drag all those things “that worked” and “didn’t work” about your year, and you bring all those things with you into your New Year!
Then you start creating your New Goals on-top of all that old stuff!
The problem is, that you are creating goals trying to fix and change all that stuff that “didn’t work” from the year before. And for many business owners it’s not just 2012… its 2011, 2010, etc.
Doing this prevents you from truly starting your New Year, off with a clean slate! What we are going to do during this Seminar is we will look at all the things that didn’t get accomplished and that didn’t work about your year, and we will get all that stuff complete.
Then we will acknowledge and celebrate all of your Successes, Accomplishments and Wins that you had during the year… and we will get all that complete!
Therefore, by the end of November’s Seminar, you will have created a clean slate; then in December (Part 2) you will stand on the shoulders of the work you did in November and you will start to conscious create your New Year.
December: Consciously Create Your New Year
Seminar Intention: “For you to leave with clear goals, and a plan to reach those goals, to have 2015 be your best year ever”
Decembers Seminar is the second part of a 2-part Seminar.
Our Annual Planning Seminars are broken down over 2 seminars (November & December). These 2 seminars complement one another and build on one another. You don’t have to participate in both, you can do just do one or the other but to get the maximum value you will want to look at doing both of them.
Decembers Seminar (Part 2) is all about “Consciously Creating Your New Year”!
The first thing we do is we create what your Vision for your New Year is.
Once you have created your Vision, then you will start creating your Business and Personal goals that will fulfill on your vision.
Then after you have your Goals created, then you will pick the one goal that is most important to You, and then we will start building a framework around that goal to support that goal in being achieved.
Taking your business through this process is the single most important thing you can do to ensure that your new year is a successful one.
