Clearly setting your workshop goals is the most important thing you can do prior to NAMS!I was thinking about all the people coming to NAMS7 (the Niche Affiliate Marketing Workshop) this morning, when I stumbled across an old Zig Ziglar video post on Youtube. It seemed perfect (and funny with all the 80’s hairdos – I’ll show you mine one day 🙂 Perfect because I want you to get the most out of the NAMS workshop when you come.
Let’s be perfectly clear about this: NAMS is not easy. It is simple. That’s what makes it so hard sometimes, especially for someone like me. (I love complicated – much to the chagrin of my friends, coaches and wife.) If you do come prepared, committed and focused, you’ll get a ton out of it. In fact, it may be absolutely lifechanging for you. We used that word “lifechanging” in a promo code not long ago because, on Monday morning after NAMS6, that was the word that Connie Ragen Green used (with tears in her eyes) when describing the experience she’d had at NAMS that weekend. Connie is a seasoned pro and an instructor at NAMS7. If it was lifechanging for her, imagine what NAMS can do for the less experienced student. But here’s the thing: You know what you want to accomplish at the workshop – set your goals. Know what you want from NAMS. Actually, demand it! We’ve built this system for you. Back to Zig Ziglar. The video is below. Listen carefully. Smile when he reminds you of a southern Baptist preacher. He’s just passionate about his topic. Smile when you see the audience members with Tammy Wynette hair and Mark Spitz moustaches. And smile when you see the cigar-sized microphone hanging on his tie. But be very serious when he talks about the importance of the following steps in setting up and achieving your goals.
- Write it down
- Put a date on it
- Listed the obstacles to overcome
- Identify people or groups to work with
- Create a plan of action
- Set time limit in the action plan
- Identify the benefits of achieving your goal
