What an incredible boot camp with Eric Lofholm, Michael Gerber, Jay Abraham, Dr. Donald Moine and NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry! Eric Lofholm called his bootcamp Create Revenue Now and that’s really true for anyone who takes action based on what they learn!
Around 120 people including me learned so many really helpful ideas and skills from these experts. As a follower of Jesus I found an atmosphere that was welcoming and I met dozens of people ready to help me, many of whom share my beliefs.
One of those beliefs is this:
We can help each other more than we realize or imagine by listening to people’s requests and remembering who we know that might be able to help them with what they want to achieve. We can also help by remembering people we know who might “know someone who knows someone” that can help. When we truly listen we find that what the person requesting help is almost always talking about the kind of person they need to meet. I’ll share an example of what happened with me during the last few minutes of the weekend.
Eric Lofholm, who is logically the main speaker at the event he created, told us about one of the attendees who knows a World War II veteran that wrote a book about his experiences and wants to get on Bill O’Reilly’s television show. Eric asked if we had an idea or if we know someone that we really believe will help the World War II veteran get on the show to promote his book. As far as I could see, I raised my hand and so did one or two other people.
Eric told us to connect with each other at the official end and the man who made the request came over to me as people were saying their goodbyes. I thought of a man at my church who I believe knows Hugh Hewitt, who has his own show. The reason I believe this is that several years ago I was on a men’s retreat with Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and Hugh Hewitt was the speaker! [While Hugh Hewitt was memorable and entertaining and told some great stories about Richard Nixon, he wasn’t necessarily the speaker you want if you’re going to dive into the Bible.]
I did know which man from my home church was responsible for getting Hewitt to our men’s retreat.
My idea was that because both Bill O’Reilly and Hugh Hewitt are conservative Republicans, being on Hugh Hewitt’s show first might give the man even more credibility with Bill O’Reilly. The man who made the request told me he didn’t think so and I asked him if he thought that just being on Hugh Hewitt’s show might help him sell more books and he said maybe, but he was skeptical. He said Bill O’Reilly regularly has people on his show who have written books and even his website has links to promote books all over it. I don’t typically watch O’Reilly’s show so I didn’t know those things.
By truly listening to him I realized that what he REALLY wanted was a show with MILLIONS of viewers or listeners that would be interested in a man like this. As we spoke further he told me that the author is a hard-core Democrat so I suggested he might try to get him on Howard Stern’s show and he agreed that might be a good strategy to sell his book.
So what happened today went like this. He made a request on behalf of his friend (with Eric Lofholm’s help) and I thought I knew someone who knew someone who could help. We communicated and I actually listened. My first suggestion was not what he thought would help. I heard what I thought his request really was
(his author friend getting on a show with MILLIONS in the audience) and we communicated some more.
This time it was his turn to listen to me and I’m pretty sure he liked my new idea (find someone who can get the author on Howard Stern’s show) very much.
All it takes to be helpful like this is a willingness to listen and introduce someone to someone else.
I’ll make it very easy for you. Do you know a friend who might benefit from reading my blog? Do you know someone who would like encouragement? Introduce them to me by introducing them to my blog!
**Here’s one way to introduce a friend to my blog (and me)**
At this very moment you can Google “Your Support Matters” and mine is the fourth search result. At the bottom of the page you can see the headline
“Heard A Good Word Lately? YOUR Support Matters”
and the blurb below it is from an earlier Your Support Matters post.
All your friend needs to do is
1) Search the right words – Your Support Matters – on Google and click on the right search result headline – Heard A Good Word Lately? and they’ll be introduced to my blog, and
2) Find THIS post by using the Your Support Matters blog search which is on the left sidebar of this blog and search the title “Help Your Friends And Help Yourself”
Search for yourself and see!
**Here’s another way to introduce a friend to my blog (and me)**
Send them this link:
You may find sending the link easier than the first way!
Don’t know what to say? Here’s what you say:
I found this guy who encourages people and he connects people to helpful people and helpful stuff. Check him out by following this link:
Do you see what I just did?
I made it easier for you to introduce me to your friends because now all you need to do is copy and paste from the beginning of the sentence that starts with “I found this guy” to the end of the link right above these words.
Here are two more valuable links:

2) FREE Wisdom From Jay Abraham
I need to say this first.
I believe that this is the most generous offer I’ve ever seen!
I only learned about his website today even though it seems like I heard of Jay Abraham forever ago! I know I knew who Jay Abraham was in the 1990s and I might have heard of him 30 years ago or more! I didn’t realize just how generous he is! I started to figure that out when I heard him speak Sunday morning in Eric Lofholm’s seminar. It’s absolutely incredible that you can learn so many of Jay’s success secrets by watching his videos. Everything is FREE on this site! Prove it to yourself by visiting Jay’s website right now!
