I was having a drink at a Bar at the Mecure Hotel in Baltimore 2 days ago, and met one of the most fascinating people I have ever met……
The reason I was at the Hotel Bar, was because I was attending possibly the greatest marketing course designed, to help business owners get more results……. But the one thing that I took away, that will grow your business quicker than anything else had nothing to do with marketing!!!
In fact, it had such an impact on me that I have struggled to sleep since, particularly after watching the video below from the guy (Frank Kern) that ran the presentation.
Frank Kern is one of the world’s best internet marketers. Frank started his talk by telling the audience that you need to stop focusing on making on money!!!! That’s right – STOP FOCUSING SOLELY ON MAKING MONEY!!!!
When we are focusing on making ends meet and just making money, then this leads to a feeling of un-fulfilment … which leads to stress, frustration and anxiety. When you have defined your mission you feel alive, excited and determined to make a difference.
This information really hit home for me. Frank broke things down into 3 simple steps, that when followed will make you all of the money in the world.
- DEFINE YOUR MISSION
- DO STUFF TO FULFILL THAT MISSION
- REMOVE ALL FEAR AND SABOTAGE THAT IS STOPPING YOU DOING THE STUFF IN POINT 2
It’s really simple isn’t it?
The problem was, I have never sat down and really worked out what my mission is. I’ve been told to do it so many times, but until now I didn’t really understand the importance of it. Frank didn’t have much time to explain how to do this, but I was very fortunate to meet one of the world’s most successful business coach’s at the bar that night called Earl Kemper. Earl has been in business for 20 years. I asked Earl “What do I need to do to work out my mission”
Earl showed me that I need to answer the following questions:-
- Work out my talents and gifts
- Work on my purpose
- Look at what I am passionate about
- Back myself – that things will work out
- Define my beliefs
- Define my values
After this, Earl showed me this little formula –
- Create a powerful Vision that combines learning’s from the above
- Create a clear purpose
- Follow course until successful
- Focus on positive energy (i.e. energy towards what I want compared to what I don’t want)
- Gain control by defining a plan so I know what to do by when.
Last night I sat up for hours working on these questions. Today I was able to define my mission for the first time in my 9 years of being in business. THE CLARITY THIS HAS GIVEN ME IS AMAZING. You know you are on track when you get a feeling of power, excitement and even some fear flash through your soul.
Please take the time to work on your mission. I know it will help you make a bigger difference on other people’s lives – which will always have an amazing positive impact on yours.
And to summaries the exact way Frank Kern defined it, remember these these three steps:-
- Work out who you are going to serve
- Do shit towards making this happen
- Stop being a pussy

Have a great week,
