Hey Jen,

This is awesome. It's great to see how as we stay with our dream, it can pay off over time. You are an inspiration. Thanks for posting this.

That's great Jen. Also, I have been amazed at the impact that one small success can have on other future successes. Momentum is a real thing. Keep up the good work. This will only snowball!

Sitting here getting ready to sign off for the day to go play with the kids and was thinking of how blessed our family has been. So grateful to the people that have helped us get to where we are today. September will be my highest revenue month since going on my own Independence day 2015. Couldn't have pictured fully what I would be doing 2 years ago, but had a good idea. Today I look back and think wow, I had no idea it would be this awesome. Seriously. So for those on the transition to going from that j.o.b. to living out your dream, keep going!!! 

Jill Davis - your workshop in a box just nabbed me an extra $1650 for next month - money I definitely would have left on the table without having it. THANK YOU! So excited for your upcoming launch.

Thanks Kent,

You are so spot on. You have taught us this at the boot camp. Being willing to make adjustments to the sails as we navigate the waters has made a difference. Niching down and being clear, which I find doesn't come at the beginning, is a must. 

I remember you highlighting that during the bootcamp and "forcing" us to identify who is the paying client and where to find them. That was a key point that took time to grasp but it became a guiding post to my journey.

Yes, at first I felt I had it nailed down but being open to the willingness to adapt along the way, is beginning to pay off.

Thanks Kent for the work you do. You not only teach it, but you model it. 

The best is yet to come.

Awesome Jeff and Kingsley!!!

May I say to everyone here that the reason Jeff and Kingsley are getting these results is 3-fold:

1) They are great examples of stick-to-it-tiveness. Both learned the Speak It Forward system by attending the Boot Camp. But here's the important part...both have WORKED the Speak It Forward system over the past 12-24 months.

2) Both have niched themselves nicely in order to focus their energy and efforts on specific markets. Niching is taught and stressed over and over again during the Speak It Forward Boot Camp as the quickest and most effective way to gain traction as a speaker, but many don't heed the advice. I know both Kingsley and Jeff have done so and I guarantee you they'll testify to the importance of niching.

3) Both have worked hard to become good communicators and good marketers. There are a lot of good speakers who don't get booked because they don't know how to effectively market their services. There are others who are good marketers, but never make it over the long haul because they don't develop as a speaker. Jeff and Kingsley have done both.

I'm so pumped for both of you guys! You both are talented. But even more, you both have the heart to serve, add value, and make a positive difference. It's a joy to watch you succeed!
