A Tough Lesson Learned

Yesterday I presented a training teleclass on Words That Heal: Language Patterns That Get Clients Unstuck Fast. I had planned carefully for the presentation, making sure that I didn’t get too ambitious or try to give out too much information.

Because the people who called in were willing to be interactive and participate in the training experiences, a good deal of learning took place. Towards the end of the class, I described how to get additional information from specific books and NLP training classes.

I also offered an opportunity to attend my Belief Breakthrough Method™ Coaches’ Intensive Program in Chicago on June 25-26. My wife had helped me create a script for the class, which I followed until the very end, when I lost track of where I was and left out some important information.

How do I know this? Because I listened to the recording. Now I will have to send out e-mails to clarify my offerings and bonus.

If you listen to the audio (click to download Words That Heal recording), you can learn from my mistake. Create a script specifically for your offerings and bonuses. Listen to your recording afterwards and discover what you liked about it and where you can improve.

About an hour after the call, someone called me and invested in the training. So I really encourage you to go for it and stretch yourself, because there is no failure, only feedback.

So what difficult lessons have you learned lately?

    Thank you so much for your vulnerability on these posts. I am very new to this type of solopreneur business and I struggle with comparisons and finding my own voice among the voices of my teachers. Your willingness to let us see that everyone is learning along the way, no matter how far along they seem to be, encourages me to keep showing up and learning as I go. Thank you so much ~
