I cannot begin to tell you how much I got accomplished this week. As I mentioned, I have been reading "Creating Money" with a fine tooth comb. It is the kind of book you want to read fast so you can cover all the points. However, it is a book you have to read at a snail's pace so that you can understand and begin to internalize and apply it's concepts.
As I have said, I set 15 minutes aside each day to read, interpret, apply and internalize its very complex concepts. One of the concepts is that when you begin attracting and magnetizing the things that you want, those things will come faster and be better than you ever expected. The moral of the story: Be careful what you wish for.
In any case, they also say that when things start happening, it will seem so natural that you will be tempted to say that it has nothing to do with magnetizing. It would have happened anyway. They say to never give in to that temptation. Always acknowledge whatever you get and express gratitude.
Okay. Buckle your seat belts. I "put out there" that I would like some free space in Manhattan to start my seminar series. An old acquaintance re-appeared in my life and offered me free space for at least the first few meetings in Midtown Manhattan. Ridiculous.
I started thinking that I would like to target women in a particular profession with my Image Consulting Services. I started researching on the internet. I came across the perfect article, on the current state of women in this particular field, published in Miami, Chicago and another major city, in January, 2012.
I thought about emailing the author to ask some questions. I googled her first. It turns out that one of her Facebook friends is my former business coach. I will contact my coach and ask for a direct introduction.
Still there? I have a great web site. The woman who owns the web development company is a well-known and successful entrepreneur. Her commitment to me is complete. Her only obligation is to have her team maintain my website. Period. She has taken it upon herself to take me under her wing to mentor me on a regular basis.
Still there? Not only has she given me great advice about blogging and raising my web presence, but I mentioned my interest in targeting this field and she sent me an email intro to the person who handles these matters for her. She emailed me and has agreed to speak with me and intro me to several professional organizations.
There is more but I'll leave something for next time. I will leave you now, in a haze of disbelief. BTW, that was all this one week. I am absolutely grateful to the book Creating Money and all of the concepts it espouses. And I haven't even started magnetizing yet!
