Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 07/03/17

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 07/03/17

Tomorrow is one of the two great secular holidays in the US, Independence Day, or perhaps the first, true Brexit. I’m not sure that too many people downing hot dogs, jumping in the water, or setting off fireworks understand just how brave an act the Revolution was, or of the dangers the Founding Fathers had created for themselves (they all would have been hanged if we had lost). And I want to scrupulously avoid contests about the oldest Democracies, with Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and others hotly contesting the title.

My exhortation to my fellow Americans would be this: Be grateful. We criticize our own country relentlessly because we can. We demonstrate our follies, flaws, and foibles to the world because we don’t feel the need to protect our egos. We serve as the world’s cop because we think it’s our duty. We have shed blood for democracy and liberty globally. We haven’t always been right, and we admit it. We are monumentally self-critical. We publicly debate and argue important issues with passion because it’s the basis of our strength.

Enjoy the holiday. Enjoy your family and friends. But take five minutes to consider this: Less than 250 years ago, only about ten generations, people fought for an ideal that has become America. A revisionist history offered by some has attempted to dim the light cast by Jefferson, Adams, Washington, Franklin, and the rest. But that light continues to shine, a beacon for us all.

We Mutually Pledge To Each Other Our Lives, Our Fortunes And Our Sacred Honor

Thought Leadership 2017: Our eighth annual event, featuring Harvard’s Dan Gilbert, he of 15 million TED views, on happiness. We have one seat remaining for this 2.5-day event of discussion, challenge, and learning of the way to establishing and sustaining thought leadership: https://www.alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/2016-thought-leadership-seventh-annual-conference/

Million Dollar Consulting® Growth Access: I’ve just changed the access fee to all of my work captured in text, audio, video, workshops, and electronic means to $2,500 for lifetime access (your lifetime, not mine!). Think of watching In the Buyer’s Office just before you enter a buyer’s office, or listening to How to Ask for Referrals just before you call for a referral! And we add to this treasure trove through the year. It’s about $75,000 of experiences, workshops, products, and subscriptions. https://www.alanweiss.com/store/online-learning/alans-million-dollar-consulting-growth-access/

2018 Million Dollar Consulting® Convention: This is in Boston in April. Almost 60% of the Chicago participants signed up in advance to guarantee their seats two weeks ago. There’s nothing else like this, 2.5 days of accelerated learning, great speakers, networking with global colleagues, and business growth. You can save 60% if you register this month: https://www.alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/million-dollar-consulting-convention-2018/

Master Class A Huge Success: Last week in Master Class, a dozen people focused intensely on moving to a larger stage, creating far higher value and fees, migrating to advisory work for six figures, exerting extemporaneous influence, and much more. I’ve scheduled another, identical program for December 6-8, later this year. It will be on my site in the next week, but you can register immediately with me at [email protected] and I’ll take $1,000 off the price. The fee includes lodging at Castle Hill in Newport, meals, and local transportation.
