Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 08/15/2022

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 08/15/2022

My book Million Dollar Coaching begins with this exercise: Has anyone ever come to you asking for help or advice? Did you help or advise? If so, did the other person improve?

If so, congratulations, you’re a coach. You don’t need a certificate, a testimonial, or someone else’s validation.

I don’t think we give ourselves enough credit. Most of us are helping people every day, through our profession, our relationships, our obligations, our compassion. I’m not talking about the superficial “paying forward” or doing something in order to get paid or thanked.

Many of you have served on boards, tutored, volunteered, contributed in a number of ways to various people and causes. Yet we often feel guilty about not having done enough, or having done nothing when we “should have” (or other people tell us we “should have”).

We need to take stock of our good intentions and efforts. I’m not talking about results, necessarily, but rather behaviors. If we only rewarded victories, far fewer people would ever enter the race. I urge clients to honor innovative behaviors even if the innovation doesn’t succeed. Otherwise, people would be afraid of trying. Every attempt becomes an anlage for ultimate success.

I won’t speak for you, but I’m more sinner than saint. The sins part is raised frequently enough! But we have to acknowledge our good works and not default to our faults. If you understand and appreciate that you’re contributing and doing the right thing, you’ll be prone to do more of it.

As opposed to the “doom loop,” that’s a virtuous cycle.


As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. —Audrey Hepburn

There is no better exercise for your heart than reaching down and helping to lift someone up. —Bernard Meltzer

The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor. —Hubert H. Humphrey

Free Workshop: if you purchase our Kindle edition of Masterful Marketing on Amazon (they prefer verified reviews from buyers) and, if you feel it’s justified, provide us with a five-star review, and I will include you with my compliments in a Zoom Workshop on Brevity and Dynamic Communications on August 29 at 10 US eastern time, and will also provide the recording. Simply send me a copy of your review: [email protected]. You can see the reviews already posted here: https://www.amazon.com/Masterful-Marketing-Dominate-Value-Based-Approach/

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. Fee increases on August 31. 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/ Three seats remain. 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/
