Are you sitting in a summit slum, contemplating relocating to a third world country where your speakers will never find you?  Before you get too harsh on yourself find out how you can turn a bombed summit into a golden goose in this episode of the Virtual Summit Podcast.


I believe Virtual Summits are an engine to conversation, collaboration & empowerment & every business should have at least one.  So lets get started building your summit.

  • Authority – no one else on the outside knows it was a bomb

   ➖   Decide what steps to take​

  • Can You add something on the back end
  • Re-Run it

Summits are by far one of the most powerful ways to quickly grow your list, launch your platform & make more money! (Even if you are just getting started).

Don’t get caught up in Analysis paralysis, because the world needs to hear your message & there are people who are waiting for you to help them. 


So just get started.  Imperfect action is always better than doing nothing!
