I was so scared I couldn’t eat solid food.
LITERALLY. ACTUALLY. REALLY.
There just wasn’t any saliva in my mouth….at all.
And, well, I don’t really know how all that works on a physical level.
I just know the eating food wasn’t an option.
I could drink juice. Greeeeat.
This was NOT what I was expecting.
I thought the scariest part of hosting my first live event would
be just making sure a few people ATTENDED.
But now here we were AT the event, and people
had come from near and far…
from California, and New York, and Canada, and Argentina!
And I found myself in a pickle I had not prepared for…
NERVES delivering the workshop.
What if no one wanted to work with me in the end?
Oh for the love of Pete!!!!
This really threw me for a loop.
Nerves are my blessing and my nemesis.
Maybe you can relate?
BTW if you’re ready to rock a workshop AND be able to eat solid food I can TOTALLY show you how.
Now up to this point, I knew a few things about my nerves.
1. Nerves help me prepare because I don’t want to let myself or other people down. I want to do a good job.
2. They help me stay energized, because I have lots of adrenaline pumping through my veins.
3. They always go away. Once I get into the flow, it’s all going to be okay.
So I was pretty perplexed when this time,
these nerves did NOT calm.
Not after the first five minutes on stage,
not after the first hour session.
Not at all.
They just stuck with me like my new best friend.
So I had a choice… give up and go home,
or surrender to it. So I surrendered.
I was beyond calming my nerves at this point.
I had to move forward with them.
Now in a moment I’ll share with you how this NEVER happened again.
And therefore why I know it won’t happen to YOU.
But before I do let me share with you
three keys to hosting your own big event or small workshop that generates an annual income in a weekend.
First, if I haven’t scared you away…
and you’re thinking you’ll host a workshop or live event this year
let’s map out a rockin roadmap to fill your workshop, craft your content, and make a great offer.
Just click here for Thursday’s live Rock Your Workshop training deets.
Second, it’s extremely unlikely you’ll ever feel the level of nerves I did,
because I really, truly have a magical way with nerves.
I’m prolific. 😉 and because I learned what to do instead.
Third, should you ever have intense nerves,
this is when you’ll be SO GRATEFUL (as I was) that you’ve
strategically created the your workshop to create impact & sales.
And thankfully, this is super true at an event or workshop!
My first little strategy shift ever– at a small local workshop —
was just to make an offer of ANY kind at my workshop —
which I’d never done before.
Yes, of course my knees were knockin, but still it
took my little $3K workshop to $18,000.00.
The next workshop I lead was actually a multi-day event
and it generated around $250,000.00.
And that event my friends, is “the one where I couldn’t eat”.
So all is well that ends with $250,000 and a steak dinner!
MAN I WAS HUNGRY! lolz.
The next workshop after that? $355,000.00.
This is starting to sound like a good idea right?
Of course, I want to help you generate several months’ or
even a year’s income from your workshop too (without all the stress)
And, in order to get great results, we DO need a solid strategy for your content + a great offer.
Click here to join me Thursday and we’ll talk about it.
Most people don’t have a content strategy at all.
They just teach everything they know at their workshop
and then say goodbye.
Maybe that sounds familiar?
I did that for a couple of YEARS.
Just flat out leaving money on the table.
So rule #1 when you want to Rock Your Workshop is ALWAYS HAVE AN OFFER.
Consider what people will need NEXT on their journey,
and know that it’s your responsibility to at least make it available to them!
That’s our job if we really want to help people, right?!
Okay so let’s talk about two key shifts I made after my
nerve-bending $250K event— “one where I couldn’t eat”.
OPERATION CALM EVENT SHIFT #1)
In intense situations, actively create a plan AHEAD OF TIME
to stay calm & get centered.
For me this means no one in and out my hotel room, except my inner circle.
Enjoy a few minutes to meditate or sit in silence on breaks.
My hotel room is my QUIET & PEACEFUL sanctuary.
No intense vibes. No bad vibes.
No weird juju allowed.
We want to create an calm anchor that balances the
pumped up energy your event will naturally give you.
Ahhhhh. So much better.
OPERATION CALM EVENT SHIFT #2)
Decide that NO event & no results are worth that level of stress.
It would be better to sell ZERO and be happy, and alive.
So remember that you are not your results.
You are not your results.
And lastly, you are not your results!
