How to Find Lucrative Collaborative Partnerships

One of the best ways to build your business is through joint ventures, cross-promotion and collaboration. While you’re greatly benefiting from this type of leverage and exposure, there still is time and money involved. If your staff or virtual assistants are coordinating your joint ventures, sending out emails, tweeting, Facebooking, etc, there are real financial expenses associated with collaborations. If you’re doing it all yourself, you know firsthand how much time and energy is involved to do the job right.

puzzleIt can be very frustrating when you go to a lot of effort on a joint venture and sales are low or non-existent. It can be especially dumbfounding when it seems like the product/service you’re promoting is an ideal fit for the audiences’ needs. Why does this happen? Assuming the product and presentation are quality, there’s a good chance that the problem lies more with personality.

Now more than ever, audiences are segmented not only by niche or need, but also by personality type. Birds of a feather flock together. Entrepreneurs who have injected their own personalities into their marketing, tend to gather clients and prospects who think and act like them! But what if you and your audience think and act differently than your joint venture partners?

In this short video I’m demonstrating a free tool that offers a solution to this joint venturing challenge. It will help you locate joint venture partners whose audiences are an ideal fit for you.

Stop Wasting Time On Joint Ventures that Don’t Work

There’s a tool that has become such an integral part of my life that I find myself using it every single day. It helps me

– diffuse arguments between my kids (Benefit: More peace in my home & happier kids)

– build rapport with a potential client within seconds (Benefit: More sales and happy customers)

– attract people who strongly connect with me and my message, (Benefit: more loyal fans/followers)

– find lucrative collaborative partners (Benefit: less time wasted on jv’s that don’t work and more revenue from those that do)

Have you ever felt like your target audience can’t hear you because of all the other “voices” clamoring for their attention? Or have you ever spent hours promoting a webinar for a joint venture partner only to produce pitiful sales? There is a way to cut through the noise AND get significantly better results from
your joint ventures.

brainmapIt’s a Core-Connecting tool developed by my friend, the brain patterning specialist, Lisa Rae Preston.

This is so powerful, I’m weaving it into my new collaboration database at IgnitePoint.com so you can search for potential collaborative partners based on their Core-Connecting Type. Knowing this could save you dozens of hours poured into each joint venture that won’t ever pan out because the person you’re partnering with doesn’t speak to your audience’s core. Or it could earn you thousands of dollars every time they do.

Find out more in an upcoming Webinar that Lisa Rae and I are holding Thursday, June 20th. In this f.r.e.e webinar, you’ll learn how to Read the Mind of Your Market (and your Joint Venture partners)!

Prevent Burnout with Passion

“You don’t have time to be both unhappy and mediocre. It’s not just pointless, it’s painful. Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you need to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” – Seth Godin, “Tribes: We Need You To Lead Us”

In this video I explore how to prevent burnout by focusing on your passion.

Follow Your Passion and Everything Falls Into Place

Can you hear me celebrating? Today is a fantastic day, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Why am I so excited? Let me explain…

If you’ve seen me speak, heard me on video, or read my blogs in the past three years, you know I’m a raving fan of the STEP into Destiny core-passion test.

This cutting-edge program, created by my amazing friend Lisa Rae Preston, reveals how to read the brain patterns of others in a way that helps you understand them powerfully.

In fact, Lisa Rae shows you how to crawl inside someone’s head and see exactly what’s going on in his/her thought processes.

As a member of the research team behind STEP, I was privy to discoveries as they happened. And I’m thrilled to tell you that Lisa Rae has just launched her new STEP program which details exactly how to read others like a book.

It’s been life-changing for me. I use STEP every day to connect deeply with my family, colleagues, and clients.

That’s why I’m so over-the-top excited to be the first to share this cutting-edge information with you!

You won’t want to miss out on this. I promise you your life will never be the same!

The Romance of a Potential’s Heart

It’s funny that what some people find romantic, others find boring. Inspired creatives (who are often Potentials in the STEP Into Destiny test) are wired a bit differently than others. I believe our deepest craving is to be understood at a level where our joy resides. Perhaps everyone craves to be understood at this place. The challenge for Potentials is that perhaps only 10% of the population will ever be able to truly “get” what brings us joy. Hence, we’re ever searching, but rarely finding someone who gets us at this core place of joy.

This scene between Dagny Taggart and Hank Rearden in Atlas Shrugged is a classic illustration of a “romantic scene” between Potentials. It may be that you’d need to be a Potential to truly appreciate it though…

Hank Rearden and Dagny Taggart in Atlas Shrugged

They stood at the window, watching silently, intently. She did not speak, until another load of green-blue metal came moving across the sky. Then the first words she said were not about rail, track or an order completed on time. She said, as if greeting a new phenomenon of nature:

“Rearden Metal…”

He noticed that, but said nothing. He glanced at her, then turned back to the window.

“Hank, this is great.”

“Yes.”

He said it simply, openly. There was no flattered pleasure in his voice, and no modesty. This, she knew, was a tribute to her, the rarest one person could pay another: the tribute of feeling free to acknowledge one’s own greatness, knowing that it is understood.

She said, “When I think of what that metal can do, what it will make possible…Hank, this is the most important thing happening in the world today, and none of them know it.”

“We know it.”

“They spoke of the metal and of the possibilities which they could not exhaust. It was as if they were standing on a mountain top, seeing a limitless plain below and roads open in all directions. But they merely spoke of mathematical figures, of weights, pressures, resistances, costs.

She had forgotten her brother and his National Alliance. She had forgotten every problem, person and event behind her; they had always been clouded in her sight, to be hurried past, to be brushed aside, never final, never quite real. This was reality, she thought, this sense of clear outlines, of purpose, of lightness, of hope.

This was the way she had expected to live — she had wanted to spend no hour and take no action that would mean less than this.

She looked at him in the exact moment when he turned to look at her. They stood very close to each other. She saw, in his eyes, that he felt as she did. If joy is the aim and core of existence, she thought, and if that which has the power to give one joy is always guarded as one’s deepest secret, then they had seen each other naked in that moment.”
