Improved Networking Through Education Generating Relationships Increases The Yield


2012 Year End Review

Who would have thought that 2012 would deliver what it did?  What a year!

Getting four of my favorite clients together to form a Million Dollar Mastermind Group has become an incredible success beyond my wildest dreams.  From the getting to know you social experience, the group was destined for greatness beyond my wildest dreams.  Their ability to become close, the development of strong support for each other, and the willingness to sacrifice for the good of the group is exceptional.  With three more meetings scheduled I can only imagine the results to come and what is in store for the group in 2013.

Adding our newest profit center in May was a total surprise.  In May I received a referral call from a partner in Orange County.  As he was describing the referral I thought to myself, “This guy does not know what I do for a living.”  However, I was to find out that he saw something in our offer that I had yet  to discover.  What a discovery it has been.  Much of the time spent in this area is working with small to mid-size companies whose key management personnel have been engaged in conflict.  What we do is teach them how to play nice.  This profit center has now taken us to being able to offer Succession Planning Services.  See more about this offer at

We did BETA test of Purposeful Networking © during the end of the third quarter and beginning of the fourth quarter.  We had two clients go through the test education and are now applying the lessons learned to  their direct marketing business. What they love about the process is that they:

  • get to the people they want to meet
  • find people who can produce immediately
  • meet only those they want to meet
  • network in a process that is now simplified using Purposeful Networking ©

Simultaneously, we discovered our first paid clients for Purposeful Networking © while doing the BETA test.  They have already agreed to commissioning our company to do a Purposeful Networking ©  Group for their direct marketing company for 2013.

Going back to Toastmasters mid-year allowed me the opportunity to start an additional Toastmaster Club.  This is the sixth club I have started.  Two of the clubs were in chambers of commerce and three were industry clubs before starting this one.  This group is made of of young entrepreneurs.  Talk about an exciting group of people to work with, they are exceptional!  Each of their speeches are innovative and in some cases breath taking.  From them I have learned about the passion one member has for rebuilding “old iron” to another member who grew up in Australia.  The group chartered in its first week.  Needing 20 members to charter, they had 24!

This has been a year to work on the business.  During a six week period, once per week I had an opportunity to work with a personal coach to work on Gerry.  He showed me how to give myself permission to connect my head, heart, and feelings.  I continue to exercise those “muscles” to get to a deeper sense of emotion.  We will be collaborating this year with my hope of bringing this valuable tool to the people I see regularly who are in need.

As we closed 2012, Lynne and I are feeling abundant.  We celebrated Christmas and Hanukah.  Lynne was surprised by an antique I remembered her liking when seeing it earlier this year.  I was able to secure it in early December, delivering it for Hanukah. We spent sometime with our INTEGRITY and Calavera families.  Our 2nd Annual Turducken Feed was on December 31.  We ate another 45 pound Turducken, feeding nearly 30 friends.  The Christmas tree/Hanukah bush glowed bright in the family room as we counted down the New Year.  Many stayed to play poker until 11:30.  We then watched the California countdown (a replay of New Years in New York City.)

Our wish for you in 2013 is good health, prosperity, and fun meters on maximum for you and your families!
