9:09PM Sunday Night at MCI Airport – PT Is Working
The muffled sounds from a 90′s era big box television suspended from the wall echoes the cheers from the Giants/Eagles game. Disgruntled Chiefs fans gather round to discuss another tough loss while glancing up at Michael Vick scrambling in the pocket to evade a surging line of G-Men who are blitzing him on every down.
The IMGrind Lead Gen and Mobile Workshop ended several hours ago and my flight back to Houston has been delayed, yet again! Looking for some levity and quick conversation with one of my best friends, I pace the floors and stare out into the darkness of the KCI runway at Gate 68. Silently cursing United under my breath, I unlock my iPhone and quickly compose a text to Ryan informing him of the irony of more delays and shitty travel.
Sitting on the well-traveled airport floor with my laptop, I begin tuning into the collective grumbles of my fellow passengers. One passenger is bitching about United and how incompetent they are (I smile and agree), while other’s talk about tomorrow’s office tasks and how exhausting their day will be.
Keeping my head down, as i furiously type this blog post on my netbook, I have conflicting feelings of elation for myself and sorrow for my fellow passengers who are caught in the rat race. These feelings battle each other with every keystroke like two Samurais fighting to the death. With a determining, swift slice of a sword, “elation” spills the bowels of “sorrow” on the field of battle and stands victorious.
Sounds twisted, doesn’t it? It’s really not, even though it sounds that way. Despite my personal travel issues, I am happy! This self-satisfaction is not due to other’s misfortunes or disgust with their current employment situation, but rather a sense of knowing that I am able to do things that make me happy each and every day.
I am blogging and I am elated.
I have finished another successful workshop with some of my best friends.
I have learned new strategies.
I have eaten great meals.
I have partaken in great drinks.
I have laughed.
I have shared great conversations.
I have seen the horizon and the view looks great from where I am standing!
This same feeling is something that most entrepreneurs/Grinders experience on a daily basis as well.
The Event Recap
I often refer to the words of wisdom from Ruck – “With each new day we, as online marketers and entrepreneurs, have opportunities to build, create, and get better at what we do! You can either take advantage, or piss it all away. That’s on you! So, what’s it gonna be? Let’s kick today right in the mouth!”
The group of gentlemen who attended this workshop amaze me both by their accomplishments and their entrepreneurial spirits. At IMGrind we have taken notice of the individuals who continue to show up to these exclusive events. It would appear that a core group is forming within the community, and frankly we love it!
During two intense days of lead generation and mobile strategy, we feel a rewarding sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and confidence in knowing that a group of hard working IMGrinders are going to absolutely dominate the mobile marketing space through the offers at Revived Media and through the utilization of the world’s most sophisticated mobile tracker – imobitrax. While we can’t publicly share the contents of the private workshop, we can give you glimpse into our experience below:
KC Workshop – Day 1
KC Workshop – Day 2
The resounding strategy at this workshop was simple:
Use mobile offers to quickly gain recurring capital and then finance the production of authority site assets. Begin building your own distribution channels. Think differently than copy-cat affiliates. Build a TRUE BLUE BUSINESS!
We formed stronger friendships
We had a great time…
When we say don’t be a fence sitter – we mean it! We want more of you to experience one of our workshops so that you may understand the strategic benefits!
Ok, I am officially tired. Time to wrap this post up. Tomorrow is a new day and I got my boots on! Let’s go Grinders!
