-Failure is just feedback. And if you're going to fail, fail FORWARD.
-Finding Clarity by asking #1. What would I do if I knew I wouldn't fail, #2. What would I do if I wasn't getting paid to do it? #3. What makes me come alive?
-Real confidence comes in the valleys of life.
-Believe in your self worth.Cocoe Voci is a wonderful wedding dress and dress designer who shared how she got into the business and what she loves about her job.
I also met Merri Jill Finstrom who actually designed the TPG logo (I always wondered that) but wasn't able to stay to hear her presentation or Laura Roeder, but don't worry! They videotaped it so you'll get to see everything on DVD later. There were hot seats featuring volunteers from the audience where both Marley and Simon asked the "uncomfortable" questions to get people thinking about how to really solve and grow their businesses.
Happy St. Patty's Day!
Mary Dann, whom I just friended on twitter, was also a speaker, along with Gianna Provenzano (super smart lady), Liz Dennery Sanders (how to book A-list celebrities), and Kelly O'Neill (boy is she a smart seller or what!?) on how to find your perfect client.
Marley has worked with Brittney Spears, Snoop Dogg, Pierce Brosnan, Katherine Heigl. and Nick Lachey, just to name a few!
The event continued until mid-day Friday, but unfortunately I wasn't able to stay for that day. But it was a super successful and great event! Thanks again to the volunteers who came to help, the TPG ladies for their kick-a$$ event (Katrina, Camilla, Jisan, and Donna), and to Marley and all of her wonderful successful friends for sharing their knowledge with us!
For those who missed it, save the date for the next one set for October 2010!
