Two folks I know somewhat (but have gotten to know better since) told me that, earlier in the summer, they both purchased my new book, Never Apply for a Job Again: Break the Rules, Cut the Line, Beat the Rest, and then sat down together in one of their homes one weekend for a whole 2 days of just going through the book, answering every question, doing every exercise, and creating each of their respective “career campaigns” from scratch! Their intention was to use the book and it’s principles to help expand each of their businesses (one in educational consulting, another in fitness and wellness coaching).
What is so cool is that they did this totally unbeknownst to me and only told me about it when they were out meeting with big-influence players and thought leaders in their respective fields. They were creating meetings with folks they would have NEVER met with otherwise! And out of these meetings (which is what the book is all about: how to connect and build relationships through “stealth”, research-based meetings), they were starting to nurture opportunities and create connections that was literally transforming the reality of their businesses.
I was so blown away that I thought “You know, lots of people read books…but very few actually activate the fullest potential of what they’ve read. So, I thought, “Why not set up a similar 2-day workshop where folks could really get a career campaign together and be implementing it when they walk out the door.
Therefore, I JUST created and launched The Career Campaign Creation Course! Check out the details…and get your seat!
