Finding hope and inspiration on a daily basis can be difficult even for the most optimistic of entrepreneurs. We will be told no more often than yes in an environment when it appears easier to focus on the negative rather than the positive in our economy and society. I recently had an experience that renewed my faith in my journey – my vision. And it took place in a positive and productive environment in Henderson NV.
I had the great fortune of attending CEO Space a week ago. You’re not alone if you’ve never heard of it. CEO Space is an organization focused on bringing together individuals who choose to cooperate rather than compete. Who choose to learn rather than denounce. Who choose to make a difference in the world through collaboration rather than go it alone.
I went to CEO Space for a number of reasons: ◊ recharge my battery, i.e., get inspired; ◊ learn new business ideas and techniques in a supercharged learning environment; ◊ raise awareness and get financial and intellectual support for the Itafari Foundation; ◊ expand my network both nationally and internationally; ◊ acquire more speaking engagements; ◊ help others become their best; ◊ recharge my battery, i.e., get inspired (yes, I mention it twice because I really needed it!)
I now know my goals were limited. I did not see the bigger picture of what was possible. Now I’m seeing that CEO Space provided me with practical tools and contacts that increased my horizon of what I can accomplish. (While accomplishing all of the initial goals I identified above).
CEO Space is a supercharged learning environment – a CEO level educational retreat; a CEO-to-CEO trade show; a university affiliated program, a place to connect with investors who will invest in your business or dream. Endorsed by Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Lisa Nichols, Mark Victor Hanson, Les Brown, and over 350 corporate trainers and major law firms on faculty. And now endorsed by me.
I’m not a big conference fan. Too many people, too many hidden agendas, too much competition. But CEO Space did not have this theme. There will always be people with hidden agendas, but CEO Space does not attract or endorse such behavior.
The week is comprised of training described as “super teaching” which delivers teaching from the best and brightest of teachers and trainers. It is networking that accomplishes more in an hour than you’ve accomplished before in a day. It is friendships, business relationships and partnerships that develop quickly and easily as you learn to ask for what you really need and are offered tangible ways to get those needs met.
Once you’re a member of CEO Space you are a member for life. I can attend any and all of the five meetings held every year for the rest of my life. And I’ll return for the inspiration, training, collaboration, partnerships, business and investment opportunities and renewal for my spirit.
I’ve learned to always begin a conversation with, “how can I help you today?” And by giving my best, I receive the same from others. Contact me for more information about how I can help you. I’d also love to talk with you about CEO Space and your ability to be more effective, productive and successful.
