Sean Stephenson Doesn’t Want My But

By |October 12th, 2009|

No, it isn’t what you think.. LOL I am referring to the title of his book
Get Off Your “But” and that Sean doesn’t want my “but”, (my excuses) for not living life fully. And he wants this for everyone in the world.

I read his great motivational and inspirational book in exactly 40 minutes. Get Off Your “But” stresses the importance of loving yourself unconditionally, loving people, getting past insecurities, and never limiting yourself. I especially love pages 167-169 where he talks about friendship and having the right “Pit Crew.” That’s all I am going to tell you because you will have to buy his book to read further about what I’m talking about.

Sean Stephenson was a guest speaker at my friend Joe Polish’s event. Sean and Joe had my abs hurting from laughing so much. I’m looking at Sean’s business card right now, the word “STANDING” is in bold blue letters. He should add underneath, “Stand up comedy tour coming soon to a city near you!” Anyone that has met him will agree with me on this. Check out this interview with him about his book.

After reading […]

Joe Polish Convention:Marketing Tips, Business Strategies

By |October 8th, 2009|

Hi there everyone. Whew…just catching my breath to update you on my adventures. I had a blast two weeks at my friend’s Joe Polish Rich Cleaner Convention.

His event included: marketing strategies, marketing tips, business coaching, great speakers, a tradeshow, and much more.
Some of the most successful cleaning companies assembled from all over the world to share their marketing tips and stories on how Piranha Marketing (Joe’s company) has made monumental changes in their business and personal lives. BTW, he also advises Internet marketers as well.

RCC guest speakers included: Sean Stephenson, Tony Hsieh from Zappos (damn it you didn’t bring me some shoes), Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, Hugh Downs, Strategic Coach, Garrett Gunderson, and others

I met Joe Polish at the Stompernet Live 8 Convention in Atlanta several months and heard him speak. We even had lunch and he mentored me for an hour. If you have never heard him speak, let me tell you, he is a dynamic speaker, motivator, and a whiz at marketing. He has the energy of a Mexican jumping bean and business smarts out of this world. Too bad I can’t shrink him and keep in my pocket for the days when nothing is going right!

One of his key ideas is to […]
