I gotta tell you an amazing story because…
… you just never know where your next “Big Idea” might come from.
This is a story that was told by one of my Wild West Wealth participants. Actually, she stood up and told the whole crowd about it at our Wild West Christmas Bash in December.
I was relating the story of how I got the whole Wild West Wealth event going … about how frustrated I was over always having to travel all the time to the US for marketing seminars and training … how I didn’t even come up with this idea until January and started promoting in March (for a summer event)…
… and how my “business coach” (a position he didn’t hold for long) advised me, none too delicately, that it was an awful idea and I should just forget the whole thing.
Yeah, right … that just got my hackles up!
This was, after all, my … BIG IDEA.
Long story short … as you know, I went ahead full steam … got my speakers lined-up (including the major coup of getting Ted Nicholas to come all the way from Switzerland to teach us all a thing or two … or thirty!) … and the Wild West Wealth Summits were a HUGE success.
There were HUNDREDS of strategies presented by our line-up of experts.
But, y’know … sometimes the tiniest spark can ignite YOUR next “big idea”.
One person, in particular, took an off-hand comment of mine and turned it into…
Well … I’ll let Daphne tell it from here, in her own words…
“When I went to the Wild West Summit in the summer, I was inspired by something you mentioned. You were saying you always go to the United States to study what you need to study … and how that was the inspiration for you to put together a seminar right here in Canada … and I thought, ‘Oh my god … I can totally do that in MY business!’
“I own a belly dance academy … so I go to The States or to Europe to study with masters and I thought, ‘Well, I can bring some of these people to Canada’ …
…so I did. And I had the largest belly dance festival in Western Canada. http://bellydance.ca
“People came in from Alaska, from The States and across Canada.
“That was in October … so, from the summer to October, I put all this together and brought in three major instructors …
it was a huge success. All from one little comment.
“So thank you, Troy!”
And therein lies the secret of success…
Look for people who are achieving the things you want in YOUR business and in YOUR life … find out how they’re doing it …
and TAKE ACTION!
There’s no substitute.
