Signup here, to get future posts in your email inbox:  In the summer of 2003, my coach (Jennifer-Hoy Saint-Laurent) asked me a simple question – right in our first coaching session: “If there was nothing to stop you, what would you attempt to accomplish?” (it’s a bit rephrased – I don’t recall the exact wording, but it’s really close); and without hesitation I said “I’d de be the next Anthony Robbins!  I’d love to speak to crowds, motivate people, entertain them… and potentially inspire my audience to create some meaningful changes in their lives..” “And… what is stopping you?” she asked.  And, boy, did I have reasons…  The truth is, I always knew that I wanted to become a motivational speaker, but I always knew that I’d never become one. …

GoDaddy.com’s CEO, Bob Parson’s 1O Tips to Super Charge Your Productivity and Make More Money

Become More Productive
Super great tips from GoDaddy.com’s CEO, Bob Parson! Except… for us, solo professionals, it is rather important to answer our phone. Of course, you have a caller ID – use it wisely.

I'll be honest, when I gave my first keynotes and workshops, I was so tensed that I forgot everything about Anthony Robbins; but instead I tried to be really "politically correct" and not screw up.  I was terrified that I'll say something wrong, I'll freeze and forget what I have to say, or make a full of myself in some other manner... It took me only about 2 years of regular speaking - 2 to 5 times/month - to…
