It simply did not exist as a possibility … No way … No how … was I not going to spend two days live with Sandi Krakowski
September 16 was a VERY interesting day here in Queens, NY. We experienced what some people are calling a "freak tornado". Big trees were ripped right out of the ground and tossed like kindling on top of big, 120 year old houses in my neighborhood. I was sitting in my office chatting with Scott Manesis and his wife Marlee, getting some last minute strategizing and work done before going to bed early so that I could catch a red-eye out to Indianapolis the following morning.
As I was talking, the sky turned pitch black, I heard TREMENDOUS claps of thunder and all of a sudden the sky opened up and the rain started sheeting down. Within 5 minutes, gale force winds were whipping the rain into an impenetrable fog. I heard things crashing about … and I remember telling Marlee that I was grateful to be living in an apartment building because it sounded like it was REALLY wild outside. As quickly as it started … it was over … almost … I was hoping and praying that the weather would clear up enough so that I would get to Indy and my live event on time. I finished packing … set my alarm clock for 2:30 am and hit the sack.
My eyes shot open at 1:30 am … I jumped out of bed … got some more work done while trying to call my regular car service for a ride to the airport … NO ANSWER. Not good .. I called three more local services … NO ANSWER … REALLY not good. Checked the local travel advisory … that storm had wreaked havoc all over Queens. Alternate travel plans were being suggested. So I finally called a service that I use in the city … they answered and pick up arrangements were made. There simply was no way that I was not getting on that plane … no way was I going to miss this event.
On the ride to the airport I was stunned by what I was looking at. It looked as though a clan of giants had had a rip roaring party in Queens. Trees and branches were tossed around all over the place. Branches were down and blocking streets. Power was out in alot of areas. Subway travel was suspended at certain stations … busses were rerouting …
For some reason, the area around LaGuardia Airport had been spared most of the damage. My flight was reported as leaving on time. And that's exactly what happened … the plane took off on time and landed early. I checked into the hotel early … I was upgraded to concierge level without asking … and I got to the meeting room with 30 minutes to spare and networked like a woman with her hair on fire
Dairy Farmer Turned World's Foremost Authority on Engaging Personal Mindset For Personal and Business Growth
Milk barn to the boardroom is how PJ McClure humbly describes his career path. After leaving a successful career in corporate America, he started a company dedicated to eliminating the fear and frustration experienced by so many small business owners … something that he personally experienced and conquered during his own entrepreneurial journey. PJ is a real business strategist, who digs into the limiting beliefs and self-talk that get in the way of truly developing and expressing the unlimited personal and professional potential that each one of us has been blessed with.
He is internationally known as The Mindset Maven and as Sandi's emcee for the event, his passion for helping people "Flip The Switch" on their personal mindset was electrifying. It is easy to see why PJ is part of Sandi's team of experts at A Real Change International. MaryEllen Tribby, CEO of WorkingMomsOnly.com said it perfectly "PJ McClure is the only person that I have ever seen take the overused concept of MINDSET and make it real. PJ is absolutely mesmerizing !!"
PJ's introduction of Sandi and the event set the stage by equipping us with a powerful protocol on how to take the information we were about to learn and best use it to help ourselves reframe how we are thinking and working in our lives and businesses. His personal interaction and accessibility during the event was a game changer for many of the attendees.
The Winds of A Real Change For New Economy Business Owners Blow Hot And Strong
Sandi Krakowski's business is committed to helping people create an extraordinary life, business and income using ordinary tools both online and offline. Her live event in Indianapolis was packed with people looking for real answers and solutions to their business questions. It was filled with high value, immediately actionable content. It also was a tremendous business networking opportunity !!
I simply HAD to meet Sandi in person. Her energy is infectious … her business advice gets results … and I really wanted to see if she speaks as fast in person as she does on the phone. I also wanted to get into that woman's head to see what she could offer to help me ramp up my business
I never expected that I would come back to New York with over a 100 pages of notes … not one bit of fluff and stuff on any of those pages … a completely revised business plan … crystal clear intentions set for the next 100 days with SMART goals attached … a revised Mission and Vision statement …. a new writing and publishing schedule … a KILLER Social Media Marketing strategy that won't annoy anyone … and so much more !! I am currently implementing all of the information as quickly as possible … testing and tracking along the way. TRUST ME … I will be telling ALL as the results start coming in … what works, what doesn't and how I tweak things
I have to admit one thing though … the BESTEST part of the event was meeting Sandi in person.
She is a human dynamo. She has more energy than an Energizer Bunny with an auxiliary battery pack. She really does speak faster than most people think. And she is HUMBLE beyond belief. The spiritual foundation of her life and her business show through in EVERYTHING that she talks about and does. She SERVES her customers and clients by always doing the best she possibly can for them and that is why what she teaches gets results for other people.
Her "no information withheld" style of teaching is really a breath of fresh air. More importantly, she teaches what she is actually DOING in HER own business to keep it humming along at the 7 figure level. Too many trainers out there teach "theory" or they simply don't give all the details of exactly what they do on a daily basis to earn money which causes people … really good, hard working people … to get stuck in perpetual learning mode spending more and more money to learn more stuff and their business never gets off the ground.
Sandi actively engaged with the entire audience. Questions (and there were LOTS of them) were answered thoroughly and in real time. She even took three of the attendees and sat them in her "Miracle Chair". EACH one of those folks experienced a breakthrough with their business right on stage. One of the Miracle Chair participants literally had domain names purchased on the spot. These were NOT ordinary domain names. But rather, they were old domain names that had been abandoned and were researched specifically for their ranking on the first page of Google in his niche. Talk about a head start on visibility !!
One of the most special moments of the event was when Gina Alexander told the audience about how much working with Sandi has benefited her business. During ONE 2 hour sales call, Gina was able to create $100,000 in sales by using what she had learned from Sandi. Gina uses the money she creates with her extraordinary handbags to fund adoptions and help Kobe Bryant fund his boys club !! (Christmas is coming … take a minute to check out Gina's bags. If you like what you see … please consider doing some of your holiday shopping with her. She has a heart the size of Texas and what she does HELPS so many children !!)
Sandi is truly creating A Real Change in effective training for small business owners all over the world and this first live event is only the beginning. As I said before, the winds of change are blowing and Sandi Krakowski is creating truly cost effective entrepreneurial training that flat out works if you do the work.
I know you want to know what my results are from using Sandi's training …
- My Alexa ranking for this blog was stuck at 300,000 for a long time. Within 4 weeks of implementing some of the things that Sandi told me to do, my Alexa ranking dropped like a stone and is now hovering around 200,000 in a HIGHLY competitive niche.
- My bounce rate on the blog was OVER 60%. It is now at 4.35%, people spend an average of 5 minutes reading the content (this is up from an average of 2.73 minutes), people read an average of 4.86 pages compared to 2.53 pages and 57.59% of my readers are new readers. And I have almost 600 readers subscribed to my RSS feed.
- I market in several different niches. Before I got some help with building my list, I had a grand total of about 150 people on my e-mail lists. I now have about 700 people total and my lists are correctly segmented. They are growing larger every day !!
- Although I was always able to write decent copy for myself, I am now being asked to write copy for other people and I am getting paid to do so
So what is the VALUE that I place on the two days that I spent with Sandi in Indianapolis…??? Priceless sounds so … American Express. So let me put it this way … I have always known that I have serious six-figure potential online because that is what I was delivering to the marketplace in BrickAndMortarville. I am well on my way to getting there now. Getting the RIGHT TRAINING has shortened that "learning to earn curve" by several years. I can also see the possibility of a 7 figure business in the not too distant future.
I do not like staying stuck in the paying to learn more mode. I like to learn, take action, get results, tweak what I am doing if I don't like the results and do more of what is working. I feel comfortable in saying that I finally have a trainer that talks about what to do, why I need to do it, tells me how to do it, shows me how to analyze the results, tells me how to tweak soft areas and then gives me more to do. Sandi teaches EXACTLY the way I teach and I LOVE it !!
Rumor hath it that Sandi is going to be holding another live event in Dallas, Texas sometime during the early part of December. This time the focus of the training will be on building profitable e-Commerce sites. This is a VERY profitable consulting niche. It is one way to help alot of offline businesses successfully move online and my ears started twitching when I heard the news. I will be sharing more of the details with you when they become available.
