Comes when an entrepreneur, successful or struggling, discovers for themselves that they are not alone. That there others like them, exist and are experiencing the same frustrations, accomplishments, challenges, and breakthroughs.
If you’re tired of “business as usual” or wondering why you never get the results you’re looking for – I would challenge you, that the reason is because you’re not hanging out with the right people and plugging into the right information.
Of course, I wouldn’t identify the problem with out also giving you a prescription…
President of Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle, Bill Glazer has a famous saying…
“The Entrepreneur is the loneliest person on the planet”
This is because like You, they feel that no one really understands what they do, who they are, how they live, and especially why they think the way they do –
I mean honestly, who do you have in your life that you can openly share your most bitter failures and frustrations, and your most fruitful successes and ambitions.
If you’re looking for a place where you’ll fit in, a place where you can go to work on your business and improve your current situation – then you must get around other entrepreneurs and be able to share ideas, discover proven marketing strategies and business building fundamentals, as well as the newest cutting edge ways to make doing business easier and more profitable.
This is the primary purpose of attending our local Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle Chapter Meeting each month.
You can not walk out of our evening event without being motivated, connected, and most importantly have actionable ideas and things to implement in your business.
The point of my writing today is to encourage, urge you really, to get plugged into to a group of successful entrepreneurs and proven information…
Sure there is a place for social networking, and I do some of it myself, from time to time, above all else you should put yourself in an environment where your thinking is challenged and where you’re fed marketing and money making information that will truly impact your business, month to month, again and again.
You don’t know what you’re missing, until you’ve experienced it for yourself.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about “little hinges” and how they affect your business – and I’ve got to tell you, attending our monthly chapter meetings isn’t so little, it’s a big hinge and it’ll make a difference in your business and your life.
If you’re sitting on the fence or you’ve been putting off attending our Chapter, wait no more, you can RSVP to attend right here. This month we’ll be dissecting Dan Kennedy’s more recent Book Release – Ruthless Management of People and Profits – there’ll be plenty of productive networking time, interactive “work on your business” exercises, and more than a couple “Big Ideas” and several “take home” things to implement.
If you’re looking for “The Place” – consider this your invitation.

I just returned from Baltimore for the second time in 9 days…and it was worth every minute. This time for a National Mastermind and Coaching Group called Peak Performers, where Bill Glazer and Lee Milteer take about 100 entrepreneurs through different exercises both in Marketing and “Peak Performance”.
Two things that I am amazed with, as this is my second full year in this group, each time I go – one is the diversity of people and the wide range of businesses that are involved.
Sure you have your typical Real Estate Investor, Mortgage Broker, Financial Investments, but then you also have Combat Weapons Manufacturer, Multi-Million Dollar Venture Capitalist, Internet Marketing Company from the UK, Consultant from the Netherlands, Celebrity Attorney, and I could go on and on – it is just amazing at all the different ways people make money…and realizing the fact that you can truly get rich doing just about anything!
That’s right, so many people try to pick the “thing” to do to get rich, when in fact you can achieve your lifestyle dreams in any business…as long as you have Marketing and Peak Performance, which is the whole point of this Coaching Group I attend.
The other thing that rings a bell every time I go to Baltimore for this experience is that there are so many ‘reminders’ of what I should’ve been doing that I know I should’ve been doing. That reminds me of a saying that I use often…”Champions don’t need to be told, they just need to be reminded”
Which in around about way means everybody needs a coach and should take time to reflect on their business and progress. When you get caught up in the day-to-day and don’t make decisions and take action strategically to move towards your objectives, you get lost and frustrated – you stale mate on progress.
People too often do what I call “Play Business”, and fail to actually run a business and get out of it what the real purpose is – to make a lot of money and help a lot of people.
Each month as the No B.S. Certified Business Advisor for Dan and Bill in Indianapolis, I put on a Chapter Meeting where entrepreneurs come together and have an experience much like the one I had in Baltimore, high powered networking, marketing strategies, and how to perform better and get more out of your life.
Every time I attend Peak Performers in Baltimore I leave with a re-focus; motivated plan to get what I want accomplished, done faster – I meet interesting people, I learn from the experts, and they challenge my thinking and my ways of doing things. I leave with plenty of ideas, more importantly, more actionable steps to take, and a roadmap for success.
I’d like to invite you to attend this month’s Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle Indianapolis Chapter Meeting and see for yourself the power of working “on” your business.
Be sure to watch for next weeks email, I’ve got a personal confession to make, won’t that might surprise you.
