      Scott's Advice For Summit Hosts

           “Just do it. Get out there and start it. If you're waiting to become an expert to get booked on other people's summits, go start your own. Invite the people that you would bring to your own and say, I'd love to have you on my event. When you surround yourselves with other authorities, you become an authority. The biggest thing is start one. They're easier to put together than you would think. When you've got your amazing software that helps out a lot of people. It's not as difficult as you think. But go start one if you really want to do one.  It could be a one day summit just to get the feel of it started. But realize, start sooner. This is where everything's going and might as well get on board. It is the 21st century and Scotty is here to beam me up into the new decade.”

        I want to end this episode by saying,


        "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!
