Two great webinars, an amazing interview, and one $50,000 launch.
Wow, what a week.
First, the webinars:
Just finished up with two webinars.
One was on #PWYW
pricing for artists, cohosted by +Cory Huff
of +The Abundant Artist
You can find the replay link here:http://theabundantartist.com/pay-what-you-will-pricing-webinar/It's encouraged more than one person to start selling their art using generosity-based pricing, as well as add #charity to the mix: http://amirainabudhabi.com/2014/03/28/why-im-offering-art-at-the-price-of-pay-what-you-want/comment-page-1/#comment-156
Amira - thanks a million for the kind words and so glad it inspired you

The second webinar was on building a #heartcenteredbusiness
cohosted by +Jason Spencer
. We helped two people build $100,000 business models from scratch using the #leancanvas
model and #leanstartup
approach.Will be sharing the link when a replay goes live shortly.
Just so you know - this webinar was created to give a taste of just one part of what we'll be doing for 7 intense days with a small group of entrepreneurs in person in Asheville NC.http://www.theflightformula.com/
This program is called The Flight Formula - and it's the FIRST EVER generosity-based, #gifteconomy
, business #incubator
....ever. As in - never been done before.
Jason brought me on board to lead the gift-economy pricing model for the program. I told him we should get rid of price all together. Jason agreed.*****So far, we're headed toward a $50,000 launch for this program.*****
Yes, you heard right. $50k for a program that has no price tag.If you don't believe pay what you want works, I'd like you to reconsider.

Finally, I got to sit down with +Andrew Warner
to talk #startups
and business building from the ground up - an interview that will be featured in the next issue of Insurgent Publishing's The Creative Entrepreneur
In case you don't know, Mixergy is one of the most popular business education platforms in the world, and his podcast is one of the top ranked in the world.
Andrew has interviewed 1,000 of the word's best entrepreneurs and gotten to learn from their successes and mistakes. Point is - his brain is a wealth of knowledge.
In this interview, Andrew was kind enough to get really detailed and tell us the most common MISTAKE new entrepreneurs make (and how to avoid it), and the most common characteristics of the most #elite
entrepreneurs in the world (the characteristics that separate good from GREAT entrepreneurs and business owners).
Awesome interview. Learned a ton. Excited to share it with subscribers of The Creative Entrepreneur this July:www.insugentpublishing.com/tcejournal
(thanks a million for the interview Andrew!)

So yeah, it's been a pretty wild week.
New opportunities are popping up every day now and the tough part is choosing which projects to commit to and which to (sadly) turn down.
I never thought I'd be where I am only 6 months out from leaving the Army.
I always knew this homeless veteran had it in him
Speaking of veterans....
I'm getting ready to launch a new #veterans
only elite mastermind with +John Lee Dumas
and +Antonio Centeno
(basically two of the smartest entrepreneurs I've ever met; both veterans, and both passionate about helping veterans transition out of the military and into a successful and lucrative civilian career).If you're a vet, sign up here for more info: http://www.highspeedelite.com/
Alright, that's all I got.
For the 3 people who read to the end of this post, you're awesome and better than everyone else.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart for your time and attention (I don't deserve it...but I'll take it).#jointheresistance #createyourlifeswork #longestfacebookpostever
