🌱 The Proven P.L.A.N. to Create Client-Attracting, Profit-Generating Content — Without Writer’s Block

I’m hosting this one on Thursday, July 11 (3 p.m. ET, 12 p.m. PT). I’ll reveal the proven, simple, 4-part system — The P.L.A.N. Framework — to create content quickly and easily, without getting stuck.

This is a brand new masterclass — different than previous ones where I’ve shared the P.L.A.N. framework.

There’s no charge for the masterclass, but you have to register in advance and attend live.

🔭Why You Should Make Useless Things

Simone Giertz is a Swedish inventor who delivered one of my all-time favorite TED talks. In this talk, she demos some of her creations which rarely succeed. That’s the point, she says.

“The true beauty of making useless things [is] this acknowledgment that you don’t always know what the best answer is,” she says. “It turns off that voice in your head that tells you that you know exactly how the world works. Maybe a toothbrush helmet isn’t the answer, but at least you’re asking the question.”

📚 Roadblocks You Can’t Ignore

I receive and read George Sotiropoulos’ daily emails so I know: He knows how to transform a business from one that you serve to one that serves you.

In Roadblocks You Can’t Ignore, he outlines 10 roadblocks holding you back from the freedom you deserve — and he tells you how to get past those blocks.

I read the book, and said, “great idea” when Ted Prodromou recommended it as this month’s selection for the Mastermind Book Club. Each month, Ted and I choose one book for the Club to read and discuss. On the fourth Thursday (July 25 this month), we meet live on Zoom to discuss the book.

The Club and meetings are free to attend. But you have to join the Club in advance to get the meeting notices and Zoom link.

Words to Ponder
