Have you ever been lost?
Like you’re on your way to a party . . . or a show . . . or any place you really, really, and I mean really want to get to.
Maybe there’s a special someone at a party who you’ve been dying to see, or it’s a show you’ve had tickets to for months, or you’re on your way to dinner and staaaaarving.
And you’re just lost.
Your GPS isn’t working. Your phone is out of juice. And you keep turning down dark road after dark road, screaming at the God of Directions, “For the love of all that’s holy, I just want to get to where I’m trying to go!”
That was me. Just over ten years ago. But I wasn’t trying to get to a restaurant or a party. I wanted to be a Producer.
See, I knew exactly where I wanted to go. I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to create theater. Period. But I couldn’t figure out how to get from that dark road to my eventual destination.
And it was a really dark road.
I was unemployed. I had one and a half friends. And every time I thought I was taking a turn in the right direction, some giant road block appeared . . . and prevented me from going forward.
I can’t tell you how many times I thought, “Forget this craziness. I quit. I can never be a Producer.”
That half of a friend of mine recommended that I read The Secret . . . you know, that best selling Oprah-recommended book about thinking your way to millions of dollars and fancy cars.
“That’ll get you on the right road,” he said.
So I read it. And tried it. Why not? I’d do anything to get where I wanted to go. And sure, thinking positively made me feel better . . . so I wasn’t screaming anymore. But I was still friggin’ lost!!!
And checks didn’t magically arrive in my mailbox. Tony Awards didn’t manifest on my mantle. And I didn’t stumble upon the next Les Miz. (That’s when my friend told me I wasn’t thinking positively hard enough . . . and now you see why he’s 1/2 a friend.)
That’s when I became obsessed with learning how some people were able to achieve the things they set out to achieve. So I started asking all these successful people I knew (and some I didn’t) to tell me the story of how they got where they were. And I didn’t just ask people in the theater. I asked people from every industry. I was on a mission to find the “directions” to success.
I talked to Tony winners, multi-millionaire real estate investors, hedge fund dudes, a world champion poker player, one of the top cancer doctors in the country, a guy featured in The Secret, a recording artist who sold millions of records, and even a Rabbi.
As I talked to all of these people . . . a theme emerged. A commonality. The one reason why every single one of them was a huge success in their chosen field.
That one thing was like a North Star to me, and when I applied it to my life, it instantly put me on the path that landed me typing to you this very day . . . sitting in a desk in my very own office with my name on the door . . . a far cry from working out of my bedroom in my apartment.
And yeah, there are some awards on the mantle now, and I even get checks in my mailbox . . . but you know what’s even better? I’m doing exactly what I so wanted to do more than a decade ago . . . produce theater. I’ve got the “job” I dreamed about (if you can call it a job . . . I call myself a professional hobbyist since I get to wake up every morning and work on something I’d work on for nothing).
And the thing is . . . you can too.
If you’ve imagined being a Producer or a Writer . . . an Actor or a Director . . . or a real estate investor, hedge fund dude, or even a world champion poker player . . . you can do it, as long as you have the right directions.
And I’d like to share those directions with you . . . the directions that took me years to gather, but the directions that are without a doubt responsible for getting me where I am today . . . and more importantly, will be 101% responsible for where I want to be tomorrow.
And I know that they can do the same for you.
On Tuesday, February 23rd at 7 PM ET, for the first time ever, I’m going to share the secrets of my success (and the success of all those folks I talked to) in a one hour Teleseminar called “HOW TO SUCCEED IN THE ARTS . . . OR IN ANYTHING.”
I’d love for you to join me.
Can’t make it on February 23rd? Don’t worry . . . the Teleseminar will be recorded and sent to you less than 24 hours later so you can listen in at your convenience (apparently people like listening to me on the treadmill, btw).
I was doing a dry run of this Teleseminar with my own Business Coach the other day, and she advised me to charge a crapload for it because of the potential it can unlock in an individual . . . and, because unlike most of my other stuff, it can be applied to any business, industry, hobby, whatever . . . anything you want to achieve success in. But I didn’t want to charge $500 or even $300 for it, even though the path I’m going to put you on can make you 100x times that . . . and make you happy at the same time, because you’ll be working in the field you love.
All of my Teleseminars are now set at a fixed price of $149, but for this one, I’m doing it for only $97. (Don’t tell my Coach, please.)
I hope you’ll join me. Because, well, I know how frustrating it can be to want to do something, and not being able to find your way to do it. I know that, because I was there. And I promise, no, I guarantee, that after this Teleseminar, you’ll have a specific plan of attack on how to get where you want to go. And if you don’t, I’ll refund that $97 so fast it’ll be like it never left your account.
If you’re someone that wants guaranteed guidance on how to achieve more success in the arts or in anything, then register for the Teleseminar today.
Or, don’t, and just keep driving around hoping you find what you’re looking for.
I’m just not the kind of guy that likes to leave things to luck. And I don’t think you are either.
Oh, and FYI, my Teleseminar software can only handle a limited number of callers. I offered this to subscribers before anyone else, so half of the spots are gone already. So don’t dawdle, as my Dad used to say. Register today.
