My Story Of Failure To Multi-Million Dollar Empire
I had an idea; a vision of what I thought was going to be a game changing new idea for an online business.
I thought I would jump in and people would come rushing in and begging to be apart of it.
I was positive I would be able to help millions of people and make a ton of money in the process.
So I decided to set out on the journey to build this new online business.
Now everyone thought I was crazy. My family was certain I was losing my mind.
My dad said, “You’ve spent years building up a successful practice, why are going to leave that to go sit behind a computer”.
Everyone I told my idea to just kind of laughed or brushed it off. That always hurt, but I used it as motivation to prove to them I knew what I was talking about.
Then I stepped into what would be one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I mean it was tough.
I had to figure out how build funnels, collect leads & generate sales. It was a nightmare.
I looked around seeing all the influencers crushing it, and honestly felt like I was at some kind of disadvantage.
I tried everything.
I still remember my first webinar. I was so excited. I put so much time and energy into creating that webinar. The PPT, the story, the content, and then I tried to get people to the webinar.
I showed up excited & ready to deliver the goods, with my new set up & microphone.
Then when I got there, it was crickets. It was so disheartening.
Then for moment I started to believe what everyone had told me. Why did I go to school to get two doctorates & build a successful clinic just to fail in online business?
Luckily I didn’t give up. I believed in the mission of what I was trying to do, even though I was struggling.
Then I heard on a podcast Pat Flynn was doing with Lewis Howes about a summit he had recently done and how successful it was.
So I said, one more chance. I am going to give it one more go and I set out to build my first virtual summit.
The problem was I didn’t really have any influence or connections yet in the online space.
All I could come up with was 9 speakers.
That was including my partner and myself.
I had already reached out to them so I decided to just go ahead and do the summit anyways, I would just make it one day versus 3 days as I had intended.
Little did I know at that moment I would be creating something that would eventually generate 10’s of thousands of leads & millions of dollars.
That One-Day Summit collected almost 4,000 leads and generated $32,000.
I can’t describe how great I felt that next week after the one-day summit had ended.
I finally had proved to myself that I wasn’t crazy. That I did have something that would help the world & that I could make money doing it.
It also inspired my first online certification, which generated over $100,000. And eventually created a multi-million dollar online business.
Of course my family now thinks my idea was the greatest thing ever.
Over the course of the next 2 years I found myself constantly going back to a One-Day Summit whenever I needed to stimulate new leads.
I also began to use it to prime any launch or new promotion I was going to be doing.
I even would create premium One-Day Summits to my current subscribers to generate a cash infusion at any given notice.
What I loved about it was that it was quick & easy. It could be created in 30 days.
It allowed me to network with influencers who I wanted to connect with.
It dramatically increased my authority & influence in my niche.
It honestly was one of the foundations I used to build my business.
Then my friends, & affiliates started asking me how I ran my One-Day Summits, what software I used, my email campaigns & how I monetized them.
Before long I was teaching about it in masterminds & breakout sessions.
That’s when the One-Day Summit Formula was officially created.
It’s an online entrepreneurs PROVEN FORMULA to quickly grow your LIST, launch your PLATFORM & make more MONEY (even if you are just getting started).
I took all my knowledge on the One-Day Summit and condensed it down into a simple & easy to implement formula that any one in any industry or niche could use and implement.
I’ve now helped hundreds of entrepreneurs implement the One-Day Summit Formula and scale their businesses from it.
They’ve generated hundreds of thousands of leads from it & millions of dollars from this simple formula.
Many of them were brand new entrepreneurs just like I was when I first implemented that original summit.
Having spent years analyzing why & how it works, and seeing all the psychology behind the power of the One-Day Summit I can fully say I believe it is one of the most powerful online marketing strategies available.
It’s definitely one of the most versatile.
It’s my go to for all my businesses when I want to generate leads, profits, launch a new product or platform and when I am prepping to participate in an affiliate promotion.
It makes me happy to see so many other entrepreneurs who were struggling previously, implement the One-Day Summit Formula and finally get that winning edge.
I’ve been there & know that frustration. I know how it feels to have a message that the world needs to hear, but feel you can’t get it out to them.
The One-Day Summit gave me the success I’ve accumulated, and now I am happy to see it helping so many other entrepreneurs gain the success they deserve.
