|Spread the Love is coming up SO fast and we are so excited to meet everybody! We have been absolutely blown away by how many of you have signed up and we can't wait to hug each and everyone of you in person to thank you for making this tour happen. Seriously, YOU did this. And we absolutely love you for it!
Right now we are about chin deep in moving boxes and wondering to ourselves where in the world this year went. How can it possibly be the end of December? I'm sure many of you are feeling the same way. I'm sure you're busy thinking about this past year and what worked and what didn't. Of what you want to do more of, less of, and better for next year. I know that you have dreams bigger than your heart can hold. And I also know how paralyzing it can be trying to figure out what to do next. What steps to take and where to spend the money (especially when that money is tight already!) I get how scary it can be to go out on a limb for someone and trust that they'll care about those dreams of yours as much as you do.
I know there are a lot of you out there who would absolutely LOVE to come to Spread the Love, but you're afraid you're not ready. You're not sure what's going to get you closer to chasing those dreams, and you're afraid of making the wrong choices. I know because you've told me.
I want to tell you how much we care. I want to tell you that if you decide to take a chance on us, we're going to do everything in our power to make you so glad that you did. From the very bottom of my heart I want to tell you that.
But I also don't want to ask you to take my word for it. After all, I am just a *little* biased! :) Instead, I thought it would be really good to hear from someone who's been there. Someone who has dreams bigger than her heart can hold. And someone who decided to take a chance on us.
From the incredible Sarah Hodzic:
I have to say that seeing Justin and Mary in 2008 was one of the major turning points that year which made me decide to keep my business going.
I was at a tough crossroads in my life and business, I was truly ready to throw my hands up in the air and say, "Forget this crazy business, it's too hard!"
The very night that I was going to make the decision to throw in the towel (which is what I really wanted to do), I drug myself to the PUG meeting where
I got to hear Justin and Mary share some remarkable ways to approach the "selling" of one's self and business... and what I found was it was less about
the "sales pitch"... oh, it was SO much more. It was about connecting!
You mean, we can connect with the people who we get to share in one of their most intimate days with? I mean really connect, form friendships and still
retain a strong sense of business? Well, this was revolutionary to me. The part of this business that I tend to loath is the "selling", but when I was able to see the whole process in a different light, I felt renewed, I felt like someone had just given me the tools and permission to really make a connection with my clients which is what I was longing to do.
So, to make a very long story short(ish), Justin and Mary's talk that night rejuvenated me and my desire to move forward.
I urge you all to sign up for this tour, I will be there will bells on! I might even be wearing my I *heart* J&M shirt - if it doesn't make
me seem like a stalker... :D
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far and I look forward to seeing you on
Here's to taking chances!
So much love,
