Rich has tried to explain why this is presented as a dial in call rather than a download on the Strategic Profits blog but he does not seem to have convinced many people.
The experience of getting in and then waiting for all the lines to be patched together took about 30 minutes yesterday so that didn't do much for my mood.
The call starts with the "who we are" bit but then gets into the meet with some stories about how they helped turn people from nobodies into superstars. This was interesting and they worked hard to summarise the takeaways from each.
What Is Holding You Back From Being A Maven?
What was interesting is that Rich did a survey and found that everyone liked the idea of being a maven (fame and wealth - not too difficult to say yes to) but 95% didn't think they could do it.
Isn't that interesting but so true.
Don't we all have self doubts that hold us back.
You may know that you are good, be proud of your skills and believe that you will perform well in in any task you accept but isn't there a nagging doubt that says "I could be even better." It drives on your determination to improve which is positive but it also opens up the idea that "someone could be better."
So how do you make that jump from "very good" to "special" and from "special" to "uniquely special"? It has to happen in two places - in your own mind and in the minds of the outside world.
Different Characters And Positioning To Be Mavens
Jay and Rich rattled through the call. I started trying to take notes but gave up. Back to the problems of having one hand holding the telephone.
They went through a whole series of different personalities for being a maven and then went through a wide range of different positionings.
This was extremely interesting and if you see character traits and positioning as two sides, there is an enormous range of possible options for you to create your own mavenship that suits you.
Maven Boot Camp or Home Study Kit
Ultimately the call is one long sales pitch for a new promotion - the maven boot camp or maven home study kit. They give information away that whets the appetite and gradually reel you in.
I bought the home study kit but then I said that I would on my first posting on 28th January. Fortunately delivery isn't expected until April so that gives me a chance to work through some of the other programs.
They nearly lost me as I was annoyed at the intransigence shown by making us all attend a telephone call and the fact that these calls that were originally a bonus for paying for the Business Acceleration Program in full had been opened up to the general public. This launch has not be as professional as I am used to but they convinced me last night that they had something new to offer.
