Tim's Parting Words Of Wisdom
"I'm always a big believer in in difficult times and asking, okay, what is the positive that can come out of this? And to me what I see is that in terms of one positive from Coronavirus is that we still need each other. And with the social distancing and everything that's happening on the online forum is I think even more important than ever right now. And so if you're somebody who's out there, you're thinking about running up a summit, you haven't done that, focus on the people that you can serve. I mean, I touched hundreds, thousands of lives. I had so many people just reach out and say, thank you Tim. Oh my God, this has changed my life. This changed everything for me. And as long as you're being authentic and you care, you're going to have a positive impact. I mean, just do it. And don't think so much about, you know, back to our early come earlier conversation. Don't worry so much about, Oh, you know, people are gonna like me or not. Yeah. Anywhere you go. So some people are not going to like you, some people are, but think about those people that you, whose lives you're going to touch, the difference you can make and let that be the North star to allow you to just step in and go for it."

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!
