So most of you know my story by now. After building massive success and writing Rules for Renegades, I retired. But as they say in the movies, I just kept getting pulled back in. There were simply too many struggling entrepreneurs NOT getting the direction they needed to build their companies into something viable and BIG.
So I launched several mentoring courses to help those success stories happen. (If you’re looking for a mentoring program to ROCK your business, check out http://www.mightyventures.com). This is one incredible success story unfolding right now.
Leannie Aalgaard, is our winner of the January 2009 Success Story of the Month. Besides getting a ton of wisdom in our 10-module “Rapid Growth” training, for being the Success Story, Leannie also won a one-hour personal session with me. (yay!)By participating in our 12-month mentoring program (Business Growth Blueprint) Leannie has addressed every single challenge she’s faced, fixed the setbacks she’s suffered, and has acquired numerous points of leverage for her company, which will translate into exponential growth and revenues. Finally, Leannie won a free pass to my massive-success-building BAI seminar this year. WOW.Here’s Leannie’s story in her own words:Dear Christine,In this beautiful, white month of December, we completed our first 5-week training workshop (Contemporary Jazz) with Blue Egg Entertainment’s first paying customers. Yeah! Our contact list is continuing to grow with people interested in our training for 2009.
We had our first film shoot on Dec 16th during which we shot two training videos that will be for sale via our website; plus, two entertainment videos for the web – all dance but we are not just a dance company. Our training as well as the entertainment we produce will include acting, dancing, singing and music, all in a contemporary flavor. Our editing begins Jan 6th. I am really excited to see the results from our filming.
This month, I hired our third and hopefully, final web developer and received our first preliminary website pages (not yet published). They look great. Our logo is now designed. Two minor changes and it will be finished. Blue Egg Entertainment is on FaceBook now and as soon as our logo is finished we will add our Blue Egg Group.
We have rented space from other facilities in order to run our workshop and film. We are presently looking at loft spaces to rent in the new year in order to gain greater flexibility in our scheduling prior leasing a bigger space for 2010.
Every step of this process has been a learning experience and I can honestly say that I have gained more confidence and clarity through just doing it than I did during the planning and preparing stage. I still do my planning and preparing; I think I may be compulsive. I like to learn as much as possible before I take action. I also like to plan in detail. I like to think of myself an idealist. A therapist may use a different term. This was probably my greatest hurdle to overcome. My vision and intention are mighty and wrapping my head around starting small and in a manageable way was a challenge. When November arrived, that was it, I hit my limit for preparing. Completing 2008 without experiencing outward results was not an option! I knew I had to bringing Blue Egg Entertainment to life outside of my head. Within one week that’s what I did. I took massive action and I am so happy I did. I know better what to do next because of what I have done. The idea seed that I planted in January 2008 has now become visible above ground.
I had my first meeting with the actor whom I believe will be our first acting instructor in 2009. During this next year we will also add singing and more dance training.
I have lots to do in 2009 and I am excited about it all!
I have learned so much from the Business Growth Blueprint program, from being on the Hot Seat and from the modules. I have several more modules that I look forward to completing. I have looked through them all and completed four. I gained the most so far from the Marketing Module.
I have gained just as much from listening during the Strategy and Coaching calls, I don’t think I have missed one. It has been beneficial to be on a call every week in addition to my mastermind call and using the discussion board.
Since initiating our first workshop in November, I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I am so grateful to be able to do what I do – build Blue Egg Entertainment. I am so grateful to this amazing Business Growth Blueprint program that Christine Comaford has created. Thank you!
