My Recent WAM (Wait A Minute) Moment

Enjoy – I had fun making this video, which is what we are all about.

Having attended the first ever UK MLM Internet Summit in April this year (2012) and having been able to share the wisdom of Diane Hochman and Daegan Smith, I had what I call my “WAM” moment. It was a big shift in my belief and mindset towards my business and me as a person. I realised I’d somehow lost my way and forgot who I (that’s ME) really am and what I’m good at.

Because of Diane’s training I was “woken up” to this because she said “you must find what you’re good at and brand yourself around that”. How true.

I hope you enjoy the video. I never thought it was so valuable going to live events, but now I’m hooked. I will be off to the next summit in Edinburgh in September, will you? Continue reading
