We will never share your information

CambodiaSoccerpic.pngIf you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I tithe 10% of my income to people, places, and institutions that feed me spiritually.

Several years ago, I took tithing a step further at one of my events, by challenging myself and everyone in the audience to donate to the eWomen Network Foundation. To my surprise, we raised more than $120,000 in only three days!

That was when I discovered the magic of “lift as you climb.” If you lift others as you’re making strides in your own pursuits, you will actually climb higher and faster in whatever you’re working on…for many of us, that’s our own business. That’s been proven to me over and over again as I’ve continued to enjoy my own exponential growth.

And when you give your attendees the opportunity to give, you and they will experience it too. Giving at your event will enable them to get more, and then, guess what? That will inspire them to give themselves more of you and your teaching.

You’ll climb higher and faster if you lift others as you make strides in your pursuits

What began as an experiment has become a cherished business practice. We now choose a beneficiary for all of our events, and to date have raised more than $500,000 for projects we believe in.

If you’d like to follow in my footsteps and use your reach to raise money for an organization or cause that you care about, it’s very important that you heed these three points when deciding whom to support:

1. Select a beneficiary that matches your values and who will click with your audience.The main reason that we’ve been able to raise so much money is that we choose beneficiaries that are not only dear to my heart, but are a good match to the demographic of our audience. We attract a majority of women, many of whom are moms, so most of our beneficiaries help kids. We’ve supported foster kid programs, a “say no to drugs” type of program, facial reconstruction for children, helping children in Africa, and currently, children’s dental work in different countries through Global Dental Relief, pictured above.

2. Do your due diligence.Your reputation is on the line, so you want to make sure that the money is going to be used well, and that the organization is established. I look for a staff of three to five people, and make sure that they have a specific use for the funds. That shows they’re established enough to know what they need, but, also, being able to picture how their money will be used, opens people’s hearts and wallets. For instance, they may be helping to raise $18,000 to buy an ambulance to take people who live out in the bush to a more centralized area or donating $72 to educate one child for a year.

3. Is your beneficiary ready to receive?Our beneficiaries process the donations themselves, but some groups are not set up to handle that. So you need to make sure that they’ve confirmed with their merchant that they can process, say, $60,000 from 40 different people in one week. If they’re not set up for that, there could be dire consequences for them, but getting that information will also tell you if they’re ready to receive from your event.If an organization fails to measure up to these standards, but you believe in the cause, by all means, send out a donation request to your personal database, and/or write your own check. But when you’re putting the group out there for your audience to donate to, you want to make sure that it has a track record with results on the ground that you can show.

ConferencePeople often think that they need to have at least 100 attendees in order to consider their live event a success, but that’s just not so.

I regularly see live events with only 12-18 people in the room, bringing in $50,000-$100,000.

How do they do it?

At the event, they simply offer an upsell of a six-month or year-long group coaching or mastermind program.

One of the secrets for having your own small event gross big money is to fill it with clients who already know, like and trust you.

Your ideal participants are clients who have invested highly in the past, but don’t overlook those who may not have invested a lot, but who have been following you for a while. It may be their time to take the plunge.

To help fill the room, consider offering your daylong or weekend event as a bonus, and hold it at a favorite spa location, such as Miraval.

Then you just need to come up with a next-level course for your attendees to invest in.

The last time I did this, 4 of the 18 participants signed up for my year-long mastermind program, including one at the diamond level, so my small gathering ended up being a very lucrative six-figure event.

If this sounds good to you, at Event Profit Secrets we’ll show you all the steps and give you all the templates and checklists you’ll need to create your own small or large event.

Finding-Yr-Trible.pngAs I told you last time, it’s very powerful to find your own tribe — that group of like-minded people around you, all vibrating in the same frequency. A group that is learning, growing and providing help and support while being invested with time, money and energy for a common purpose.

Groups like that don’t usually happen without a leader, without someone who assumes the throne and says, “I’m going to set the direction here.”

So while finding your own tribe is amazing, even better is to build a tribe around you and your area of expertise.

Why Do You Want to Build a Tribe?

Building your own tribe is super satisfying and fun. It draws your best work out of you, gives you a place to teach and develop it, and allows you to make a big difference in people’s lives. The tribe that you build also becomes your community, so it enriches you. Plus, it’s super leveraged, so it’s very lucrative as well

Assume the throne and build your tribe around your expertise.

How to Build Your Tribe

There are really only two ways to build your tribe.

     1. One by One

You can bust it out one by one, talking to prospects individually. This can work for filling small group coaching programs, but if you’re aiming higher than that and have plans to grow, you can start to imagine the coordination and constant marketing effort it would take to get everybody on board, all starting at the same time. So if reaching a large group and rapid growth are your goals, this option may not be sustainable as your only approach.

     2. Get Them All Together

Far better is to get everybody together live, such as at a live event, retreat or workshop, and then use a structure to create an experience that they won’t want to end. Even small events of 12-18 people can go a long way toward filling your program. That’s because there’s really nothing like the power of people seeing you in action and learning from your brilliance for several days to leave them wanting more. Then, all you have to do is invite them to turn that three-day experience with you into a six months-, nine months-, or a year-long group coaching, mentorship or mastermind program.

And then, voilà, your tribe is born!

Finding-Yr-Trible.pngWe were all just together for Ultimate Sales Bootcamp, and it was so magical, it got me thinking about the power of having a tribe. By that, I mean a group of like-minded people around us, vibrating in the same frequency, learning, growing and providing help and support.

There are all types of tribes, but I’ve found that the most successful ones are invested. They’ve come together with an investment of time, money and energy for a common purpose.

For instance, our Sales, Authenticity, and Success Mastermind (aka Sassy) tribe comes together for the purpose of making big money doing what we love and learning to sell without being salesy, all in a heart-centered way.

So whether you’re just getting started or have been in business for years, here are three powerful ways that an invested group of like-minded tribemates could be there for you:

1. On the ground. This is everything from celebrating your wins to helping you with the strategies and tactics to create more wins. Think of the achievements that you have shared with other people, who just didn’t get it. For instance, if you just landed a perfect affiliate, it could be totally life altering for you, but most people in your life would have no idea what that means. Your tribe would, however, and they would magnify that win, doing all that they could to help you create more.

The most successful tribes come together with an investment of time, money and energy for a common purpose.

2. In the air. I’m referring to the things that happen between your ears, so that’s your fears and your challenges, which your tribe would understand too. For instance, let’s say you just got eight clients at $500 each, and most people in your life would think that making $4,000 in a day online was amazing and you should be celebrating. But you know that you put months into your launch and you had a much bigger goal in mind. So, instead of celebrating, you’re putting your nose to the grindstone to figure out what you need to do next. Your tribe would jump right in beside you, supporting you all the way, while others might judge you as “too into your work.”

3. In community. This is that all-important give and take of support. Your tribe could support you in everything from book launches to helping you climb up in your YouTube rankings, to liking you on Facebook, giving you feedback, or even showing up at your very first live event. Call them what you will: your witnesses, collaborators, mastermind partners. This sense of community is the intangible part of the tribe that provides the ongoing experience of magic.

And, let’s face it, as much as your family and friends love you, a lot of times their feedback and help is less than helpful. In most cases, they are not your ideal clients, and they have not walked in your moccasins. While your invested tribe would actually have the clarity and know-how to help you move forward.

If you’re ready to move forward with a group of like-minded entrepreneurs, who are truly there for each other on the ground, in the air, and in community, check out our Sassy tribe. Enrollment is open for a short time.
