If you've spent any time at all with me, you know that Jennifer Lee is one of my biz heros. Her work empowers creative entrepreneurs both individually, and as a community. One of her biggest gifts to the community have been the five yearly video summits she's hosted (I was a spotlight the very first year!) featuring both up & coming and well know creative entrepreneurs & experts. The interviews air alongside an active chatroom filled with (literally) colorful enthusiasm, and I do more networking there than anywhere else.
This year's theme is 'What's Next?' What's next for your business, what's next for your creative path? How will you next speak YOUR truth? That is SO where I am right now, and I can't wait for week two, which will feature an interview with Eric Maisel, who is another big influence on my creative journey. You'll also get to meet three women who rock my world as creative-cohorts: Sheila Pai, Katherine Carey and Virginia Simpson-MaGruder!
Live access access and time-limited replays of the Summit are available for the price of.. free! Just clickity-clack your way to the Right Brainers In Business website to get signed up. Optional premium packages are available and include unlimited replays and other goodies, including a FB group to help participants network and figure out what's next for their own business.
This year, I've been experimenting with live tweets during the summit. Many of the moments I tweeted are already in the video above (Like when my friend Monica Garcia talks about building from the inside, out!) but here are a few tidbits Jenn didn't share:
"Know your audience, and know your audience's audience" -- Jennifer Lee on #rbbiz— Tori Deaux (@ToriDeaux) March 13, 2015
(Especially important if you're in wholesale or biz-to biz markets)
"They're searching for YOU.. but if you're not there to find, they're going to be empty handed." - Sam Bennett on #RBBIZ— Tori Deaux (@ToriDeaux) March 12, 2015
(So get over your fears of promotion, will you?
People NEED to find you.)
The path to success is not A+ b+ c + d -- the path is random -- Amethyst Wildfire #RBBiz— Tori Deaux (@ToriDeaux) March 10, 2015
(Yes! It's random, curvacious, tangled and sometimes blocked with brambles.
You may get a splinter or a bruise, but it's all part of the journey)
Lisa Congdon: "Build & sail your own boat" - Me: Well that makes it MUCH harder to miss the boat, doesn't it? #RBBiz— Tori Deaux (@ToriDeaux) March 9, 2015
(I wrote about the boat metaphor a few years ago.
I like Lisa's take on it better.)
Jennifer Lee: What symbolic message would you tattoo on your chest? I'm tempted to do a sharknado. Yes really. #RBBiz— Tori Deaux (@ToriDeaux) March 10, 2015
(I actually had Sharnkado temp tatoos done up a few years back.
I'll have to see if I can find the photos for you)
So, will I see you next week at the summit?
If so, be sure to say hi in the chat and tell me you read this post :)
Right-Brainers in Business Video Summit
I'm pretty darn biased when it comes to anything from Jennifer Lee. I consider her one of my mentors. I've been spotlighted on her video summit and her blog. I've been part of multiple Right Brain Business Plan courses, and am currently a member of her Mentorship Circle. And if you click on the links to her site above, and purchase something, I'll get a percentage of that sale. So if you do that, thank you.
But if for some reason affiliate links make you feel icky? Hey, we all have our hang ups! Just click this affiliate-free link: http://rightbrainersinbusiness.com/ and I won't make a dime. Seriously, that's ok. It's more important to me that you feel comfortable accessing the material.
So go. Click.
Be comfortable. Be inspired.
And Build that Boat, Baby!
