Don’t take my word for it. Read the email correspondence below from Malcolm Whitfield in response to a Post Program Planning (automated) email we send to all our clients after-the-fact.
Hi Marc, (or whoever handles your mail),
Just thought I would reply to this.
I attended a half day Internet Business Blogging Workshop several years ago (2012).
I knew it was just a taster for further services, but I felt I got genuine value out of the few hours.
I implemented a couple of the ideas I got from the session, (there were more that I could have used, but I’m slack), plus what I have gleaned from the info on your website.
I got a feel for how the web thingy actually works. My tiny little website with its tiny little business pulls enough customers to outperform all my competition, including St. John’s, in my local area, and brings about as much work as I can handle by myself. (I’m 65 and not really wanting to hire staff and build a big business).
Your training session was tight and professional and jam-packed with real, usable tips and information. (I’m a trainer myself, and I’ve seen a lot of mediocre ones).
Don’t know how the people who do your mentoring programs (Platinum Program) and bootcamps go but if they get the same bang for the buck that I did, they should all be millionaires by now.
Just thought I’d let you know.
This email, unsolicited and received more than two years after-the-fact tells you a few things… Among them:
- Classy people still exist in this day and age of entitlement. If ever you are working late dealing with a client request and wonder if it’s worthwhile – remember you change the world ONE person at a time. Not many will tell you, but many more than you think will appreciate it.
- When you pay it forward, it all comes back to you. Malcolm and I met at an event several years ago, but I still remember him even though I’ve spoken to thousands of people since then. Be INTERESTING and people will be INTERESTED in you and your story.
- Give without the expectation of reciprocation. This is so much truer today than ever with “everything” being free and too many people taking things (and people) for granted. If you are well served and are provided with great value – let the person/company know. Praise and acknowledgment never, ever falls on deaf ears!
