Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

Posted by

​This past weekend, I did something completely out of my comfort zone.

I spoke.

Like in front of people and everything.

It was a conference for real estate investors and I gave the talk about creating online branding and a social presence.

And more importantly how to connect it all together.

You can see the proof below as I spoke at my buddy Zack Childress’s Real Estate Investment Conference about brand building using automation tools.

​Now, why is this a big deal?

Because 10 years ago I couldn’t even imagine getting on a stage or talking about what I did.

Not even 5 years ago.

I was weird AF when it comes to getting in front of people.

Sweaty palms.

Dry mouth.

The nervous jitters.

It was to the point that the mere thought of standing in front of a crowd would break me out in a sweat.

Stage Fright 101 – right?

Seemed like more.

That’s one of the reasons I’ve not been a huge event guy.

Call me weird.

I know.

I’ve battled with it my entire life.

But Saturday was different.

I felt calm after a couple of minutes in.

Here’s why…

For starters, I knew the topic.

A lot of what I talked about was stories from my days in the real estate space and how to transition what I’m doing now to help close more deals.

Secondly, I’ve done hundreds of webinars over the years – both training and sales webinars.

The first webinar I did I was so freakin’ nervous.

And I bombed it.

Big time.

But I did it anyway.

I continued to do the 2nd, 3rd, and the list goes on and on.

To the point, I could drop everything I’m doing and hop on a webinar now impromptu with no topic and be able to talk for 90 minutes.

My point in saying this is because none of this happened overnight.

It wasn’t as a result of a magic bullet software where I pushed an effin’ button.

It took time.

Reminds me of the first website I launched.


Looked awful.

I didn’t make a dime.

But after I started building a few, it got better.

It got easier.

As a result, I developed systems over the years.

That get consistent results.

So, here’s the deal.

If you’re looking to start or grow your digital business.

And you need help with gettin’ it all to click, then here’s what I want you to do.

I’ve got a bitchin’ new training program called SOAR and I want to get you on the inside.

I put together a free online class you can check out here to see if it’s a fit for you.

See ya on the inside

PS – If you’re worried about the price…

Here’s the dealio.

One local deal or one affiliate page ranking can more than pay for the investment in the program.

And I know how to make it all happen because I’ve been there, done that and I can show you the way.
