It is rare that I cancel any of my appointments, but today there was no way I could go to my meeting at 1PM. I called my friend and asked him if we could reschedule for next week. I was so exhausted. Luckily, my friend agreed to my request, and I went straight back to sleep.
I had numerous meetings and commitments last week, but nothing compares to what is coming up this week. Let's see. A General Assembly of our non-profit organization this Monday, then a few meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday, a three hour workshop that I am conducting on Thursday after a meeting, Friday I will be in Buffalo to host a book launch, Saturday morning I will be heading to Ottawa for a basketball game (we are having our own play offs lol), and then I will be back in Toronto on Sunday...(my theory is that when I am busy, I don't have time to sin. So, I will definitely go to heaven).
I am both busy and exited. Being part the Goal Achievers Group has brought me to heights that I have never been to before (or you can use "that I have never experienced". These guys are serious players on the market place. Just a few weeks ago, we had an idea of putting together an event on May 7, and before we got home, the website was already done. Are you serious??!!! (did you check www.theprofitleaders.com yet?)
Before we took our breath, another guy came back with two HUGE pieces of good news. The first one, is... (I am holding my breath here), the great Gerry Robert is coming to speak at our event. Are you kidding??!!! Do you mean, I will be sharing the stage with Gerry Robert? This time I won't be the one signing autographs, I will be the one chasing autographs. I was so excited when I heard the news man!
I have seen Gerry once on stage with Bob Proctor, and now not only am I meeting him, but I will be speaking on stage with him!!!
Gerry Robert brought himself out of poverty to earning over $1 Million in a single year. Now he's a mentor to some of the highest income earners in numerous industries. He is a bestselling author, columnist, speaker and consultant operating throughout North America and Asia. Gerry has spoken to over 3 Million people from around the world (I am not speaking about me here. I am not there yet lol).
Do you remember that I told you that there was two pieces of good news? You will be excited when I tell you this one. OK, take a few minutes, relax a bit and come back when you are ready to hear this. I will be here waiting for you when you return...
OK, now that you came back ready to hear the news, I am going to give it to you. I have a couple of FREE tickets to give away (shhh!! Please don't tell everybody). Yes. You got it right. We have been able to secure a sponsor who agreed to pay for 50 people at the May 7 event. I am one of the speakers, so I am holding a few tickets (I won't tell you how many) worth $299 each. Since you are reading my blog, you are the chosen ones (I have another chosen one who is in Kigali, but that is another story lol). Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can reserve a seat for you (first come first serve as the tickets are limited). You will have a day that you will never forget. You will finally get to see me do my thing on stage (please don't say that you will only come because of Gerry Robert).
Before I let you go, I have to tell you that I had such a humbling experience yesterday. For those who don't know, I am heading to Burundi this coming June for my wedding (to the same wife I married in December lol). This time it is the religious wedding where family and friends will be gathered to celebrate with us (William and Kate? Lol).
A couple of friends came together and put together a fund raising event for my trip and the community responded in ways that brought tears in my eyes. Thank you guys. What a great tradition we have!
Moral of the story? Do you want to attend a great meeting for free, just e-mail me and you will be chasing autographs. But this time it won't me mine.
Always a pleasure
