Events Change Lives

I don’t know about you, but I never really believed that events change lives. See, I’ve been to over 50 events and never really felt they changed my life. I understood I was learning and it was great to connect with like minded people – I got all that.

But I really didn’t think that ONE event could ever change my life… until 2 events ago! Just last year and now my life is completely changed! Seriously!

My story

See, I’ve been involved in network marketing for many years. I first joined in 1992 about 1 year before my first born. I went to all the local events for my company (every weekend), went to all opportunity meetings (1 or 2 a week) and attended the massive family reunions where there were close to 20,000 people attending.

I mean, it was HUGE! I certainly was impressed and enjoyed the events… but my life wasn’t changed… I learned lots, I made new friends, I grew my business a bit (really, just a bit LOL)

I left that company in 1996 feeling Network Marketing was a great way to build a business but I had other aspirations which you can read about in other posts…

Getting back to the story, I got involved in another company around 2009… a young company, no events, no training but I thought great opportunity… I went around posting flyers and got a few calls… but I had not grown enough to be able to succeed there either…

Fast forward to just before this life changing event, I’d been in my current Network Marketing company for about 3 years and I had grown a team of about 40 in first year… they had all quit since then… I was in the same boat!

When it all changed

I would have quit except I had told myself I would never quit… I would stick to it until I made it! I knew that the PROBLEM WAS ME! I knew it didn’t matter which company I was with, I would not succeed until I grew…

I had just lost my high paying IT job (6 figures), just 1 month before my 10 year anniversary! I could have decided to not spend the 4k or so to go with my wife to this event… we talked about it. She thought I should save our money until I got a new job… I thought now was the best time to try to build my business… now that I had no job to get in the way…

We booked it… hotel $1500, flight $1000, event tickets $800… even car rental for $350. Of course, add to that meals and shopping while there…

What happened?

We got there a day ahead which was great. It was the first time my wife left the kids – they were 2 and 6 months! Anyhoo… It was a 3 day event. The first 2 days were typical, we learned things, met people, had fun…

It’s on the 3rd day that something clicked inside me… I can’t explain better than that… I even got on stage with the host… out of about 2000 people, she picked 4 people to help and I was one…

I didn’t realize the impact that had until much latter…

What changed?

It’s really hard to describe, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my life today is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than it would be if we had not gone to that event!

What changed is what I am able to accomplish. I now know that event change lives without any doubt. Not just because of skills I learned, but because of my understanding of how to use those skills. I would NEVER have been able to understand that without the event. I am 100% sure of that.

How can I be sure? As I said, I’ve been to over 50 events… I don’t really remember any of them… but I still remember this even like it was yesterday!

If you’re not sure…

I’m now preparing to go to another event that I am even more excited about. I know you’re head it before… that you never know which event will change your life but I’ll say it anyway because it’s true!


Just don’t ever think it’s not worth going because of that… think IT IS WORTH GOING BECAUSE OF THAT!

I hope my story inspired you to say yes to an event and if you feel this can help your friends, please share this post or video, I would hugely appreciate it.
