I’m thinking seriously about pulling off one of the more important encounters I’ve played a part in before. Yet while the impact of what I’m considering is mammoth, the scope of people who’ll experience it all would be surprisingly small.
I’ll explain quickly:
I only have one gear, overdrive-forward. I’m also hopelessly inquisitive and obsessed with learning all I can — about everything I can, that positively (or negatively) impacts business today.
So, for the last decade, I’ve almost stopped (altogether) doing info-type training activities – preferring instead to interact with a wide array of diverse entrepreneurs – worldwide – who were at the forefront of driving meaningful commerce. My mind asked questions and grew and grew.
Stated differently – I chose NOT to spend time with dreamers, non-achievers or do anything that would “feed” inappropriate people or unrealistic goals. I wanted nothing to do with business opportunity. I wanted no connection to any of the affiliate-based, online “launches.” I wanted no connection with anyone or anything I felt disserviced or didn’t really serve the growth and prosperity of real-operating business owners.
So I traveled the world, worked with a multi-billion dollar international development firm. Worked with one of the leading visionaries in the accounting world. Worked with the former head of the Harvard Research Project. Worked with portfolio companies owned by two, multi-billion dollar private equity funds.
I stopped doing North American seminars – because I no longer care about maintaining or managing a 40-person, seminar staff. Nor was I interested, anymore, in creating the millions of emails and dozens of provocative teleconference “preview” programs we became known for introducing. I STILL did $50,000 keynote addresses – but only to key industry conferences.
In the meantime, I’ve consulted, conferred, and collaborated in deep, masterful thinking sessions with some of the deepest, brightest, mammoth breakthrough minds in the entrepreneurial world. Why? Simple, really – I have an abiding commitment to grow myself, my mindset, my methods, and my grasp of our dramatically-changing world.
Toward that goal, I’m deeply involved as a partner in a high-level performance enhancement group – targeting CEO’s of private companies doing $20 million to $2 Billion. We’re teaching these CEO’s how to combine “convergent” thinking with “divergent” thinking, to take their strategic and critical thinking capacity — quantum leaps higher.
I’m working with “the” leading authority on illiquid assets, value creation for businesses preparing to be sold. I’m co-authoring a groundbreaking book with Daymond John of Shark Tank-fame for start-ups needing to fund/finance explosive growth.
Finally, I still go to China and Japan once a year and conduct high-level, high-priced, high-attended 3-5 day Super Intensives, where we’ll attract up to 850 people a seminar. I just did 865 people in Shanghai. I’m leaving Monday for Tokyo where approximately 400 people are attending a highly experimental, breakthrough process I’m testing out.
We’ve stimulated thousands of significant success stories throughout Asia – since I’ve done work everywhere from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Taiwan, Beijing, Bali. I’m partnered in the former Soviet Union with the largest business bank, there.
I’m telling you these things NOT to sound brash. Rather – to clearly establish the fact that – just because I’m no longer aggressively trying to sell much of any information products – I’m richly involved in the core of real entrepreneurial
ism and probably far more evolved, experienced and sophisticated in my understanding of what works today in business – than many of themaddening crowd of self-promoters you get emailed from, almost daily.
That stated – a ton of subscribers on my list have asked, re-asked, re-asked again IF I would conduct at least one 3 or 4 day, updated Super Seminar —just for my list – to share all the new thinking I’ve been gaining the last few years.
I really have no interest in hype-y promotion. Nor do I care anymore about selling you on how valuable my mind, methods or updated “world-view” knowledge can be. So I decided to “trial balloon” a concept.
If enough people on my list-only, have enough confidence and clear-cut perception of the value three days live spent with me in a room-examining breakthrough business growth methods can be – I’m open to conducting a relatively small attended/extremely high-quality unscheduled hybrid 3 or 4 day Super Seminar for you.
But I’m only interested if YOU want to attend badly enough to commit yourself meaningfully and unrelentingly to the concept.
I’ll need to scramble to put this all together – if you REALLY want to be part of this vision. I’ve got a very complicated business travel schedule. So I’ve targeted the one window that works for me. I don’t want to undermine your summer or complicate your other imperatives. So – if you see what I’m envisioning as being a “bonanza,” a chance to become a powerful marketing leader, maybe even own dominance in whatever you do – read the original prospectus I laid out earlier: http://abraham.com/seminar/
If it gets you excited – do something about it… http://abraham.com/seminar. If not, don’t. I’m not pushing anyone to participate.
I’m fine doing this in June, IF enough subscribers want it. I’m fine not doing it and reserving all my forward-focused, paradigm re-thinking and transformative strategy and business modeling for the partners and clients I privately serve.
If you want/need to make some sweeping changes in how you do business – my proposition represents a radically different source of knowledge – with untold profit potential, a vastly expansive source of revenue streams, huge, new marketing potential.
