Hi there Aspirants! You are here with me today at the You Got This seminar because there are no accidents, and everything happens for a reason.
While you are indeed perfect the way you are, I’m here to throw you a lifeline, tell you how to boost your brand, help you kickstart your side hustle, and teach you how to just be yourself.
Unless you want to be Tony Robbins. I can help with that, too. All you have to do is — walk like him, talk like him — but don’t always act like him, because…women — and soon you will be him. It’s better to ask forgiveness than permission.
“It’s not knowing what to do, it’s doing what you know.” — Tony Robbins.
Or, doing what someone else knows and faking it until you make it. Which works even better.
Tony must not have heard “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” And today, you know me, your soon-to-be-famous life coach. Because the only shots you miss are the ones you don’t take, and I’m taking my shot all the way to the bank — I mean the goal.
The All Important Morning Routine
“Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life,” — William A. Ward. *
So let’s get that morning routine going. No time like the present. And each morning is a present wrapped in sunlight tied with a ribbon of fresh air, delivered to your doorstep by some Heavenly Door Dasher.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.” I’m not sure if William A. Ward, or Bill, as I called him, said this, but he certainly could have. Or maybe it was the other Bill — Bill Keane. Whatever. Don’t look a gift day in the mouth.
First Wake Up
You can’t be woke until you wake up. You can’t open that present until you get out of bed. Then, make your bed. By doing that, you’ll have accomplished at least one thing every day.
Conversely, If making your bed IS the only thing you accomplish today, it means you don’t have enough to do. You haven’t even begun to stretch your bandwidth.
That’s why I never make my bed. I have too much to accomplish to waste time making beds. When we’re done with this seminar today, so will you! You’ll never have to make your bed again.
Do NOT make a TO DO list
Why? Because life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans. Throw those plans away and throw caution to the wind.
How else are you going to get out of your comfort zone, face your fears, and smack them into the middle of next week? Look that fear in its eyes, and knock it out of the ballpark.
While it may not be whether you win or lose, but rather how you play the game, you might as well win. Amiright?
I said AMIRIGHT??
(Attendees raise hands and shout, “Yes, Madame Guru, you are right”).
That’s more like it! Hell, yes, I’m right!
Where was I?
The all-important morning ritual. Drink at least two cups of coffee. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and coffee is the most important stimulant. At least when first you wake up. I don’t want to know what stimulant you use at 2:00 or 3:00 a.m.
Next, go swim with the sharks. Or, since you’re likely working from home, just paddle around in the bath for an hour. It’s easier to slip between the teeth of sharks when you’re clean, lotioned up, and slippery.
Carpe Diem The Hell Out of Your Day
Take the bull by the horns. It’s a bear market currently, but flip that script.
Never buy a pig in a poke, but buy, buy, buy that crypto now. Get in on the crypto ground floor, even though it is now the 15th or higher floor. Because it’s never too late. Opportunity only knocks once, but when it comes in the form of an MLM or crypto, it knocks with louder and louder police knocks until you answer. Answer the door! If the door is locked, open a window.
At the break, see my lovely assistant, Amy, to sign up for our automatic crypto buys.
Buy low, sell high. No, not while you’re high!
Didn’t I just tell you to save that for 3:00 a.m.? Trying to succeed while high is is like trying to wade through all the BS of corporate America wearing cement shoes. I don’t care how many times you’ve watched “Wolf of Wall Street.” Just say no.
Saddle up and ride that horse to the old town road. Then ride on until you can’t no more. * Ride under some low-hanging fruit and grab it with both hands. Then pivot, and ride back triumphantly with the spoils of victory.
Circle back and deliver those deliverables. Remember, all things come to those who wait, and somebody is waiting for your deliverables. And while it’s the journey, not the destination, that matters, you’re going to want some cash at the end of that journey. A lot of cash. Who says money can’t buy happiness?
That’s why I’m asking you right here, right now, to man-up, woman-up, or non-binary-up and email the names of all the people you know who would benefit from attending this seminar to my lovely assistant, Amy, at [email protected]
For each person who signs up, you’ll receive $20 of their $2,000 fee. All you have to do is recommend only 100 people who then sign up, and you’ll make your seminar fee back! Sign up 200, and you’ll make enough money to attend my follow-up seminar:

- I knew William Arthur Ward personally. That’s why I know he came up with this phrase, no matter how many other gurus try to claim it. And yes, that does make me old AF. Although, I was very, very young at the time.
- I did not meet Tony Robbins, but I did meet his first wife, Becky, at an inspirational business seminar I used to produce called “Money and You.” For reals. I liked her much more than him.
- Shout-out and thank you to Li’l Nas X.
- Stuart Wilde wrote the book, “The Trick to Money is Having Some.” I’ve met him, too, and attended one of his seminars. I get around.
