Are you an introvert? If so, I have a message for you right here.

While most people assume that being an introvert is an obstacle to marketing, it doesn't have to be. As a matter of fact, if you recognize and accept where you are on the extroversion/introversion scale, you have a significant advantage because you can identify the specific strategies that play to your strengths. 

So if you are struggling, feel like a hamster on a wheel who is working hard but getting nowhere, and you want to make some changes for the better, take a look at this.

Isn't it about time someone finally told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about making a living as a coach?

I've been waiting for someone, anyone, to come forward with information I've known for years, but so far, nada. Guess it is up to me to tell every coach I know what it really truly takes to create and sustain a six-figure coaching practice.

So here's the deal: I will spill the beans, but just once. On Wednesday, October 28, I will explain it all, in vivid detail:

Just listened to an audio interview with Brian Tracy. What a smart guy! (After all, he has written over 30 books.)

What really struck me was his short list of the three qualities that separate successful entrepreneurs from those who do make it in business.

According to Brian Tracy, successful entrepreneurs:

1. Accept responsibility for their own success.

2. Write down their goals.

3. Learn from experts.

As simple as it sounds, most of us can't do it alone. Seriously, giong it alone is hard, which is why I have a coach (actually, three coaches).

If you're struggling, and could use some help, check this out. I promise it can help.

One thing I hate about having a sale (which may be why I have only ONE sale a year):

Getting calls the day the sale after asking me to honor the sale price for "just one more day."

This year I am being pro-active: The sale is extended (whoo hoo!) for those of you who wanted to wait until the October billing cycle.

So, in answer to the questions that have been emailed today:

==>> YES, there is product in stock (not a lot left, but some).

==>> YES, I will honor the sale prices until Friday, October 2 at 5 p.m. Pacific.

But that's it. Period. If for some reason there is a problem with my web site (and there shouldn't be, but you never know), if you want the sale price, you must CALL (360-882-1298) or EMAIL me by 5 p.m.

I will honor all phoned in, emailed, or faxed product requests at the sale price IF they come in under the deadline.

The last moment to order is 5 p.m. SHARP. After that, prices shoot right back up to where they were.

So NO EXCUSES, no exceptions, no special deals (hear that, Mom?).

UPDATE: Yes, I did forget to include the link to the products page in the email I sent out yesterday. Nobody's perfect, and I am living proof of that! ^_^
