The Power of Joint Ventures

1450107_10202948665543648_1388887596_n

Me as one of the sharks on “The Shark Tank” at The Joint Venture Experience. I was honored to be a part of the brilliant panel.

Building a business in a sustainable manner is a difficult task.  The stats about small business success rates are staggeringly horrible…which may in fact be an understatement.

It is hard to fathom 95% of all small businesses fail inside of 3 years…it makes me wonder how is that even possible. Some even argue that those stats are understated because so many people start businesses and do not register and file for business licenses etc.
Regardless if you are an entrepreneur or want to be an entrepreneur you must ask yourself how the hell do I make sure that I do not end up as one of these statistics?
Well that takes navigating a veritable mine field.
Now if you had to REALLY navigate a mine field I believe you would want to walk a PROVEN PATH?
I know I would, I would literally step EXACTLY in the foot steps of someone who had walked through safely.
What if that was possible for your business?
What if you could simply follow the footsteps of those that have gone before and radically improve your odds of succeeding?
Well you can, I know that because I have done it, only 3 years ago I had never done a joint venture at all and in a few short years Joint Venturing has become one of my most significant and successful growth strategies.
So what is a joint venture?
Think of it this way, right now there are people and businesses that have lists of YOUR PERFECT customers, and they are wondering how they can leverage their list, that are trying to answer the question what else do their customers want and need.
If you could connect with these people, if you had a way to track leads and sales that worked for you and your potential JV partner, so you only paid for results, wouldn’t it be worth it??
Of course it would!
That is the power of Joint Ventures.
Last year in one of my early joint ventures I supported friends of mine Rich German and Milana Lishinsky in the launch of one of the best ideas that I have ever heard of…you know one of those brilliant ideas that once you hear it you wish you had thought of that…well more that once I have said “Damn I wish I had thought of that!”
What Rich and Milana have created is something called “Joint Venture Insider Circle” and it is a combination of training “How to be a great Joint Venture Partner” and even better a community of business people who are ready and willing to joint venture with YOU!!
Think about it, about 1000 members who get and understand joint venturing. All ready and willing to share your offerings with their list, it is business growth with a proven path.
Sounds good doesn’t it…that is because it is!
To find out more I want to invite you to download a free ebook that outlines the 12 reasons that joint venture partners say no and what you can do about it.  When you download the book you will also be invited to attend a complimentary webinar, I highly recommend that you attend the webinar you will learn tips and tools to start joint venturing NOW!
I have been so inspired by joint venturing that since joining the JVIC I have connected with and done JV’s with more people that I would have ever dreamed possible.

And MANY MANY MORE!
These JV’s have generated strong 6 figures in sales in the past 12 months and are sales that we would never have created without the support of our JV partners.
The truth is you could add strong 6 figures to your business next year if you master joint venturing as well.
Joint venturing, it is simply the fastest, most cost effective way to create a wave of new clients for our business NOW!
You owe it to yourself, your business and your family to master this as fast as possible!

‎”The masters in the art of living make little distinction between their work and play, their labor and their love, their minds and their bodies, their information, their recreation, their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which; they simply pursue their vision of excellence at whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing.” — James Michener

If I miss anyone as we are making a ton of last minute changes and adjustments, please know it is an honest mistake!

From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU to all who have supported and participated in the first annual Conscious Creation Tele Summit.

There Is Something Within You That You Are Called To Create

Image 5I want to ask you a question…in fact my current favorite question.

What are you EXCITED about creating?

Seriously…

What are you REALLY excited about Creating???

I am not talking about your plan to pay off you mortgage in 15 years instead of 20 years, or losing that last 10 pounds that you have been struggling with. I am talking about, heart pounding, pulse quickening, head glowing, smart ass grin, excited about creating?

Stop for a moment and notice what happens for you when you sit with the question for a moment. I find it fascinating when I ask people this simple question.

There are some common responses and reactions

1)   Some light up and share what they are engaged in or preparing to become engaged in, and a meaningful conversation is underway, Yahoo, we have a conscious creator!

2)   Some have difficulty letting themselves get excited because they are burdened with, fear disappointment and obligation.  Unfortunately this is FAR too common they WANT to be excited they want to be engaged in CREATION they just cannot see through the have to’s for it to seem like a real choice.

3)   Some utter the 3 words that kill more ideas, brainwaves, possibilities and brain cells as well if you are following the new research in neural plasticity.  You know the three words I am talking about odds are you have uttered more than once “I don’t know”.

I do not know what you response was the first time I asked the question but I do know that within YOU there is something that you are called to create, something that is aligned with your heart, mind and soul and when you consciously direct your energy to “THAT” you have the ability tap into what William Hutchinson Murray wrote about.

“Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.”

(I LOVE that quote, for so many reasons, which I will not go into here or this post will be 240 pages long.)

Suffice it to say that I believe that humanity is at its best and divinely connected when we are engaged in the conscious creation of that which we are excited and passionate about that which has meaning to us.

It is this belief that gave birth to The Conscious Creation Telesummit and I invite you to attend, more importantly I invite you to actually CREATE for real in your life and in the world whatever it is that you are excited about creating.

The summit is free to listen to LIVE and this all-star lineup of New York Times Bestselling Authors, Transformation Coaches and Personal Growth Experts Will Teach You How To Consciously Reframe, Redesign and Live as a True Creator.

The Conscious Creation Telesummit will not only spark your EXCITEMENT about what you are called to create, it will provide real tools, practices, processes, and role models who have done it themselves! Role models who are conscious creator’s and who hold the vision that conscious creation is your true nature, your birth right YOU CAN, YOU WILL, YOU ARE a conscious creator!

So make the COMMITMENT to participate in The Conscious Creation Telesummit. I promise you that I have raised in your favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which you could have dreamt would have come your way.

So do yourself and your future self a favor, join the summit. Bend time, create what you want NOW! by registering here.
