It's a new format for the discussion segment of this month's Virtual Mastermind meeting. So instead of me yakking about some topic, we get to plumb the depths of our members' genius and experience. 👍
Here's how it works:
Each member gets 90 seconds to show, explain, introduce or share a tip or resource. This is more than simply mentioning a favorite tool, app or website. We expect a visual demonstration so you can actually show us what you're talking about. How cool is that? 😎
Couple of guidelines:
First, there must be a live demo or visual to go with the suggested resource. We'll use Zoom's screenshare for this. Second, be sure to post the link to the resource in the chat in the Zoom meeting so we all get it.
How it looks:
Just like our round-robin style of suggestions and laser coaching, each person gets a turn. The turns last 90 seconds, which is plenty of time to share, but not so long that prep becomes a chore. 😓
Let's say you want to share the Advanced Marketing Institute's headline analyzer. When it's your turn, you post the link in the chat (https://www.aminstitute.com/). Then share your screen to the open window in your browser and demo the tool for the group.
Instead of mentioning the tool, you show us a headline with the rating. Then, show us what happens when you change a word. Does the rating increase? As you see in the images above, I tried the "Each One Teach One" headline first. The 50% rating is very good, but I wondered if I could improve it, so I added the word "Introducing" to boost the rating to 60%. Boom! So when you share, show us how it works.
Maybe you want to share the tool that makes your Canva images into animated gifs. To prepare, make sure you have your finished image ready to download first. Then, show us the different gif options we could download.
Now, if you're a regular Canva user, you already know the reason for this advance preparation. Not all Canva images can be animated, so you'll want to make sure your image can be before you begin your demo. Otherwise we won't get to see the cool thing, and you'll have a little egg on your face. (Don't worry, I've had whole quiches on my face before!) 🤦
Doesn't this sound fun and interesting?!? This next Virtual Mastermind should be super valuable! I am looking forward to seeing what our Premium members bring to share.
Remember, registration is optional. The access link is on the Mastermind Meetings page. If you like and/or want an email reminder, go ahead and save your place below.

Here's the deal: My husband and I decided to shake things up by moving to a new town. We've sold our house and are packing our bags. The DIY Vancouver office closes at the end of this week. And we hit the road at the end of March.
Here's how this move affects YOU:
The good news is that you won't notice much of a change. Since January, the DIY has been 100% virtual, which has been going great. So no changes there.
The phone number (360-882-1298) will be the same.
The only real change is my mailing address. I will let you know as soon as I can. Until the first week in March, the Vancouver PO Box is my default mailing address.
To recap: I'm moving. The DIY stays pretty much the same except for a new mailing address.
Full disclosure: We had a rocky start with our new webinar platform. The system stopped working mid-webinar, so we scooted over to Zoom. 😞 So while I was able to deliver the information, it was rough. And after, there were two videos; one for the first half, and one for the second half. But not one good video of the full webinar. [heavy sigh] 😓
So we had a do-over webinar, and it worked! 😌Yay! Thank you all for your patience. 🙏
Good news: All the downloads from the January marketing webinar are ready for you. You can get handouts plus the video of this month's webinar on the Launch Strategies page. Here's what you'll find:
Launch Marketing Key Ideas
Launch Marketing Checklist
Launch Marketing Template
Launch Marketing Detail
Launch Marketing Example
Launch Marketing Slides
Launch Marketing Strategies webinar
It's some pretty good stuff, if I do say so myself. Can't wait to hear what you think; please let me know in our Facebook group. 💬 Thanks! 🙏
To your prosperity & profitability,
Your Marketing Coach

We will continue to use Zoom for virtual meetings such as Action Calls and private coaching. The monthly marketing webinars will be on WebinarNinja, our new full-featured webinar platform.
You're going to love the video quality, the tools, and the experience of this platform. Unfortunately, there is no automatic member registration for the webinars. That means you will need to register if you wish to attend. Sorry about that!
But if you don't plan to attend live, you will still get access to the high quality video, slides, and notes on the DIY site. You will be able to watch at your convenience (and it's gonna look better, too!). You'll find the materials here: Launch Strategies
It's a new year, new decade, and we've got a new schedule. Here's a quick recap:
Premium member meetings:
Action Calls on Mondays at 9 and 11 AM Pacific
Virtual Mastermind meeting on first (or second) Wednesday at 10 AM Pacific
Group Marketing Coaching on second (or third) Wednesday at 2 PM Pacific
All member meetings:
Monthly marketing webinar on the third (or fourth) Thursday at 10 AM Pacific
The schedule changes in some months to ensure that there are no more than two meetings per week.
Group coaching meetings are open to Premium members only.
Registration is not required for members. The access link is on the event page in the Members Only area for all events. Registration is still available for those who want email confirmations and reminders.
The membersite calendar is updated through June. Download your 2020 calendar on the Members Only page here.
