People often wonder how we are able to lead 18 live events each year (52 days total), lead a team of 17 people, have hundreds of high-end clients, and still make time for romance, our boys, and self-care.
We have to admit, it’s not always easy...
Especially, this past Monday. It was our 7-year wedding anniversary. We had planned to take the whole day for ourselves for a hot tub, long hike, and plenty of time for a roll in the hay. 🙂
But on Monday morning, we realized that we were going to have to choose between keeping our word to our clients or taking the day to celebrate our love.
Have you ever had to choose between a commitment to work and a commitment to the love of your life?
Ten years ago, when we first launched our business, working during our anniversary would have been no big deal. Because there was so much conflict in our relationship, it was often easier for us to work instead of dealing with our emotions.
But these days, we actually love spending time with each other... and we were both really looking forward to our anniversary.
Before I share the big insight we had, I think it would be helpful for you to know what we promised our clients.
We promised this year’s Get Leverage Program would be simpler, more step-by-step, and much more doable than ever before.
The truth is, of all of our programs, Get Leverage has challenged our clients the most. More clients than I can count have made $10,000 (or more) in a month, through Heartselling™ (which we teach in the Client Attraction Summit and Client Attraction Mastery) and speaking to groups (which we teach in Six Figure Speaker). Only a few of our most successful clients have taken the Get Leverage strategies all the way to making millions of dollars.
But the potential of the Get Leverage program has always been there. The principles we teach in Get Leverage are exactly what helped us reach over 25,000 people without burning out and make over $10,000,000.
We just needed to re-organize our Get Leverage strategies so even our most beginning clients could set themselves up to not have to trade time for dollars for the rest of their life. And our more advanced clients would also have the tools to launch their home study courses and high-end group programs in a big way.
Unfortunately, we were going to need most of our Anniversary Day to make that happen.
When we realized we were going to have to sacrifice either our integrity or our commitment to our love during our Anniversary, we were both quite upset.
“Seriously??? We’re going to spend our Anniversary working!?"
Until we had an insight...
What if we asked ourselves a more inspiring question than “Why do we have to work today?”
What if we asked ourselves: “How could we honor both our commitment to our clients and our love?”
From this inspired question came an inspired answer: “What if we work for a good part of the day and have our anniversary a week later? And what if we added an overnight stay at a really luxurious hotel to our date?”
Suddenly our energy returned and with it, our excitement about re-inventing Get Leverage.
Because we had a turn-around, we are VERY excited to unveil a brand new Get Leverage to our clients tomorrow!
Now it's your turn: When you feel like you have to choose between work or love... how can you have BOTH???
