I’ve recently been bombarded with ‘new year/new start’ personal development offers. One really caught my eye. Email went on forever and ever, stuffed with superlatives, testimonials and dire warnings about what would happen if I didn’t invest in ‘the ultimate Mastermind group.’
‘Are you going to be the person who turns your life and business from striving to amazing super success in 2018?’
Interested to find out if I was that person or not, I went to the mastermind’s website. Another lengthy repetition of the email with even more hyped up language.
Clearly I am not that person!
The Mastermind group’s content was nothing out of the ordinary with ‘extra topics’ you could find yourself on YouTube. The fee was astronomical. The testimonials so uber the Mastermind leader would have to be Tony Robbins and Oprah Winfrey rolled into one. That’s what happens when people deny their own magnificence and project it all into A N Other aka Mastermind Group leader.
Then I remembered…
I was once asked by a peer why the guy running the business course we were on was an ‘expert.’ I came up with some reasons to which my peer shook his head. OK clever-cloggs, why is he an expert? The answer? ‘Because he says he is.’
Aha… that old Emperor has no clothes thing!
But I bet, like me, you’ve been conned in the past. I bet you’ve laid out shedloads for personal/business development stuff presented like gold that turned out tinsel. No more!
BOTTOM LINE #1
Use your common sense. If a personal/business development course/workshop/programme looks too good to be true, it probably is. If you’re not sure about it, ask questions.
The #7Step sales page has an explicit contact box so I can help you clarify if it’s right for you or not. Either way, glad to help. Your life’s too precious to be mucked about.
If you’re still not sure, consult with your divine inner wisdom. Remember? Feet on ground, sit straight, eyes closed, a few deep breaths and focus deep down into your belly. Then ask away!
BOTTOM LINE #2
We tend to think if something costs a lot it must be good. And if it doesn’t cost a lot it’s not. However, its cost depends on a variety of factors.
For example, if I’d designed the #7Step programme just for you it would cost £000s. That would reflect the time, experience, wisdom, effort, my life’s training for #7Steps, the creativity and X-factor energy with which I’ve woven it.
But I haven’t. I’ve designed it specifically for ALL delicious women like you who want to change something you don’t want in your life to what you desire instead.
The programme comes in seven simple yet profound steps in a pay-as-you-go format to be easy on your busy life and your pocket. Two step modules are paid for and downloaded separately. Step seven is my gift to you. A thank you for your loyalty and commitment to the programme and, especially, to you and your life.
As the #7Step Programme is unique, I can’t give you an idea of what similar programmes cost because there are none. When I asked colleagues to give me an idea of pricing, the lowest was £75 a module and I shudder to tell you the highest.
You’ll be glad to know I didn’t take their advice…
#7Steps was born from my heart and passion to help women who didn’t want to work with a therapist or coach and/or couldn’t afford one. I spent oodles of time consulting with my divine inner wisdom to create a programme that is simple yet profound, doable, doesn’t make promises it can’t keep AND affordable.
So the fee for each two step module was divined as just £29.92 so as to be accessible to as many women as possible.
By the way, unlike some, I don’t want you to deny your magnificence and project it all on to me… Although that would stroke my ego wonderfully! Quite the opposite. #7Steps aims to help you find and accept your own magnificence and superb being, woman.
So, if you know one or two women who should be receiving my posts, please forward this to them with encouragement to join our Dare to be You community here.
And remember Bottom Lines #1 and #2 in summary…
Go with what’s right for you. What gets offered as gold could be tinsel. And, finally, what comes from your divine inner wisdom is bound to shine through…
Love to you…
