NAMS8 was my Most Significant Workshop
Ute Goldkuhle of www.FunFitandHealthyGrandma.com tells us about her Ah-HA moment at NAMS 8!
NAMS8 has been my forth workshop – yes, I hesitantly but proudly admit! This has also been my most significant one.
Why do I hesitantly admit? Because this time I would have loved to share a monetary business success, even a small one to show that the system I have learned is working. Instead, I have a skeletal beginning to show for.
Why do I proudly admit? Because this time I came to NAMS8 with a clear focus and knew exactly the skills I needed to refine and buckle down to further my niche/business building, thanks to Richard Goutal, http://RichardGoutal.com, a fellow NAMS member and wonderful coach.
Being a ferocious learner with an overflowing creative mind – enough is never enough for me – to stay focused was not easy. I would have loved to hop to different workshop sessions like I used to do. But I knew better this time and stayed focused in Level 1 to finally overcome my technical phobia in WP management.
The rewards were amazing! Just to share a few of many highlights.
- The Q&A session one-on-one with Paul Taubman, http://IneedHelpwithWordPerfect.com; the session on security with Regina Smola, http://www.wpsecuritylock.com, were an incredible boost. Unlike before, I suddenly unfroze from my technical fears that always held me back. And they have not returned since. Though I had learned before the use of MindMap from Bob Jenkins and had developed my business plan, this time Bob, http://MindmapMyBusiness.com, brought it for me to a new level. I had been struggling with an eBook structure for a while and in Bob’s session an AH-HA moment resolved it. That was profound!
- The Networking camaraderie among teachers, leaders, participants! It was like coming home to a safe community of like-minded spirits to help, share, support, encourage and embrace each other in our respective endeavors and pursuits, regardless of age, background and experience. I can’t even begin to name everyone. The list is endless of remarkable people and entrepreneurs. This is what makes NAMS unique and why I come back again and again. I feel safe with my struggles and slower than envisioned progress.
If NAMS8 was the first time for anyone starting from scratch to fulfill a dream of building an internet business, this is the best and right group to start the journey to not give up! Between NAMS5 and NAMS8 I have traveled through a significant paradigm shift and mindset shake up: from overwhelm to calm, confusion to clarity, fear to excitement, shiny object and information syndrome to focus and determination; from falling down to getting up again and standing tall.
I proudly admit that NAMS8 gave me the confidence and boost to graduate to Level 2 in the business building learning curve. The leveled workshop plan from one to four is working if we approach it seriously. I had to learn that!
