      Advice From Sasha

      "Make sure the event is part of your whole business approach. If you want to plan a summit, do it short, sweet, very focused and make sure you do something with it afterwards, that it just doesn't stand alone as one event that happened, gain you some revenue and happy with it. Make sure it gives you money again, again and again."

        "I believe in YOU & YOU can do this."

         

        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!


        Thank you and see you on the next episode!
