The Magic of Smart Business and Hard Work
How to move from $300 to $5K gigs
Today’s guests are 2 people who didn’t give into the resistance that stops so many of us from playing bigger and earning higher fees. They are now earning manyfold what they were just 12 months ago.
Theirs is a story about taking a leap of faith, of leaving secure employment to follow dreams, of putting information into action rather than just sitting on it.
Jason and Stacy Alan from Akron, Ohio – the rubber capital of the world – put into practice what Ken and I call the trio that is becoming a common thread among the success stories we are hearing from people on the MB journey:
Educate …make foundational mind shifts
Activate … take action
Evaluate … measure and adjust your course
