=> Introducing the DIY virtual Mastermind meeting!
Finally! Virtual Masterminding at the DIY!
Virtual Mastermind meetings start this month!
Now all members, no matter where they live, can take part in our Mastermind meetings. The agenda is the same as the on-site meetings, but the meeting is shorter (up to 90 minutes). Why? Because two hours is a long time to be on the phone/computer! See the meeting agenda here: Mastermind Meetings
We meet on the DIY iMeet platform on Friday from 9:30-11 AM Pacific. Registration required to get room key (password). No charge for All Access passholders; $25 for DIY members. This meeting will not be recorded.
All DIY members are welcome at the meetings. RSVP through the DIY Calendar.
How to Use Your DIY Membership (Avoid Information Overload)
There's a lot of information available to members here. But nobody expects you to absorb it all--and certainly not all at once!
Reality check: The true value of your membership is in the support you can get to use that information. (Or some of it.)
You can get great marketing tips many places, but finding someone who:
puts in the time and effort to get to you know you
truly cares about your success
is there to help you through the process of deciding what to do, figuring out how to do it, and then (slowly, carefully, painstakingly at first) getting it done
and is a qualified marketing expert and coach
is rare. But you've got all that in me, your marketing coach.
So, when you're ready to put your marketing in action, I'm here for you.
I know that the marketing process can be slow, difficult, and discouraging sometimes. Which is why connecting with your peers and coach can be so helpful. You get encouragement, feedback, and advice to make the process easier and faster. Or at least more bearable!
Most folks find implementation overwhelming at first, and if that's you, you are not alone. But you've got something other folks don't have: your tribe at the DIY. We are here to help you through that process. You will find support here, as well as inspiration, motivation and validation.
You can also help others who are walking the same path.
I understand that you may think you need to do it alone. After all, you ARE a do-it-yourselfer, aren't you?
But you can do it yourself without doing it alone. I am here for you when you need help, guidance, and encouragement. The other members of our community are here for you, too.
Let's get to work!
