Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 09/19/2022
From:
Summit Consulting Group, Inc. -- Alan Weiss, Ph.D. Summit Consulting Group, Inc. -- Alan Weiss, Ph.D.
For Immediate Release:
Dateline: East Greenwich, RI
Monday, September 19, 2022

 

“If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.” Yes, but: There are 12 kinds of ducks with varying habits. Which one are you looking at?
“Eats like a bird.” In that case, get out your wallet. Birds eat up to half their body weight a day. A two-pound cardinal eats about a pound of seed a day. That would mean a 160-pound person would be devouring two full goats a day, bones, horns, and all.
“The early bird catches the worm.” Indeed, and the early worm gets eaten. Many organizations deliberately choose to be the second ones into a market, and as much as I love Apple products, I never buy in advance, I wait to see if there are any problems with early releases.
Social media are full of platitudes that readily contradict each other (and so is the Bible, for that matter): “Opposites attract,” yet “Birds of a feather flock together.” Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” But, “Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die.”
We have a tendency to default to the tropes and treakle of the past rather than examining every situation for what it’s worth. The former relies only on habit and complacency. The latter requires thoughtfulness and insight. Sloth vs. sentience.
When we apply gross beliefs and myths to our lives, we tend to lose all the details. And the truth is in the details.
Be sure to come back next week, because “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
Except when it makes us forget.
 

Judge people by their behaviour, not their platitudes. —A. J. Odudu
Speakers are not supposed to waste time on platitudes, but the capacity of this generation for ignoring the obvious and concentrating on the negative and the obscure is immense. —Arthur Hays Sulzberger
It is becoming clear that the old platitudes can no longer be maintained, and that if we wish to improve our morals we must first improve our knowledge. —Havelock Ellis
Free Session: Thank you to everyone who purchased a copy of Masterful Marketing. The book release is tomorrow, September 20th, which means you should soon receive your copies in the mail if you haven’t already. In case you missed the announcement I sent last week, there’s still time for you to register and join Gene Moran and me at no cost for the Million Dollar Influence working session.
Reach: As mundane as it sounds, the most successful entrepreneurs build great lists of prospects. I call “reach” the combination of large lists that are populated by buyers and recommenders, quantity plus quality. Join me to learn how to build these lists, “evangelize” them, cleanse them, and utilize them for virtually zero cost of acquisition of new business—live, remote, and passive. Three hours on Zoom, also recorded: https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/reach/ There are a lot of consultants with excellent ideas and methodology who simply can’t get on radar screens. This is how you do it.
Alan’s Coaching Confidential Newsletter™: Sign up to receive my unique, monthly, highly targeted newsletter which will contain inventive coaching methodology, case studies, and strange experiences in the coaching trade! I’ve coached thousands of business executives and entrepreneurs globally.. https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/coaching-confidential/ Write me for a sample copy: alan@summitconsulting.com, subject line: Sample Confidential.
Meet Me in London: I’ll be hosting a two-day, high-level discussion of likely business futures globally, financial considerations, global passive income, the new realities of sales, new approaches to strategy, and so forth. There will be a limit of eight people. I’ll also conduct a full-day experience for a larger group, probably a limit of 30, for an entire day which will address new approaches to value based fees, the five essential short-term revenue generators, role playing difficult conversations, the advanced Accelerant Curve, and scaling the practice.https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/london/ At the Baglioni Hotel, across from Hyde and Kensington Parks.
Return to Australia: I’ll be making my 19th trip in October, this time to Brisbane, to present a week of unique offerings from passive income and global “reach” to a new strategy approach. Join me and your peers for my latest value to grow your business and decrease your labor facing our “new realities.” There is also certification for a new approach to strategy (about which a publisher has just purchased a book on the topic from me) for the post-pandemic world that already has 60+ practitioners in six countries. There is limited seating capacity. https://alanweiss.com/growthexperiences/australia2022/
Million Dollar Consulting® for the World: I’ve provided 14 modules with videos from me, from your colleagues globally, slides, and text. They include everything from launch to self-esteem, proposals to fees, closing business to creating a brand. No upsells! It’s only $115. What do you think about a 10,000:1 ROI? We have over 500 people from 47 countries. https://milliondollarconsultingcourse.com
Beyond Thought Leadership: I’m bringing six experts and huge successes from five countries, spanning the globe, to a 2.5 session with a series of 90-minute interviews I’ll conduct, plus new IP and case studies. The seventh interview will be with me. Nothing else like this, and it’s far too difficult to coordinate schedules to do it again. So it’s now or never. Learn from your peers how they have scaled their business and built great lives.https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/beyond-thought-leadership/ One seat remains. W Hotel, South Beach, Miami.
Million Dollar Consulting® College: I’ve been asked to run this again, and I miss it, so I’m going to do it on December 13-15 (2.5 days) in Castle Hill, Newport, RI, my usual stomping grounds. The beach houses in the winter are fantastic. There’s a great holiday atmosphere that time of year. It will be on my site next week. I’ll be focusing on what I’ve seen as the critical areas for success: brand-building, accelerating referrals, provocative IP, low labor revenue focus, the post-pandemic lasting realities, and so forth.
The fee is $15,000, which includes lodging, breakfast, lunch, breaks, and one dinner. If you catch me at the bar, it could include two dinners. I’m also going to take time to show how I create this and other workshops, step by step, live or remote. Past grads are welcome to attend for $5,000. https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/million-dollar-consulting-college-2022/
