Before clients of my agency begin the matchmaking phase, we first put them through several weeks of intensive coaching. Our focus during this pre-match time is to share effective dating strategies, review recent research, and most importantly, dispel myths! Over the years, I’ve heard just about everything, and I mean everythang! The following are the top 10 myths our female clients believed to be truths.
Our host, Paul C. Brunson, started off the night with maybe one of the biggest shocks in #MentorMonday history! In #MENTORMONDAY HISTORY! But you have to watch the show to find out what it was. (Spoiler alert: Red Stripe and Blue Moon may be heartbroken.)
He also took the time to remind us of one of the most phrases uttered on #MentorMonday. Yes, Chris Burns (who was in this week’s Spreecast audience) gave us this bit of wisdom and quite possibly the most retweeted #MentorMonday quote from his time on the #MentorMonday Entrepreneur Panel: simply, “Get money.”
But how do you “Get money”?
And just as important, if not more so, how do you monetize your business and then build several streams of revenue? Our #MentorMonday monetization panel with Tionna Smalls, Jullien Gordon, and Trent Shelton share how they do it.
“The minute you are willing to surrender your biggest dreams…the success follows.” ~ Mandy Hale
“When you think you’ve lost hope it’s just the Universe’s way of telling you there is something else out there for you.” ~ Russ Terry
“When you step out on faith you don’t fall.” ~ Paul C. Brunson
“I don’t even watch the news [on TV] because it’s too depressing…I have to make a decision to remain positive and hopeful at all times.” ~ Angela Russell
We’re talking HOPE, with the “Oprah emphasis.” This episode of #MentorMonday took a fascinating and dare I say, ‘hopeful’ look at how to keep hope and how to keep from losing hope. Some of us, like Paul, like our hope in a liquid form!
Seriously, though, hope, and the elements of hope, including faith and confidence, were the focus of this episode. Paul considers himself “The Hope Guy,” so this episode is near and dear to his heart (but honestly, every episode is!)…and to the hearts of the #MentorMonday Community. (more…)
#MentorMonday got a little daring in the first “after dark” episode dedicated to all things sex!
In partnership with #ThxBirthControl and Bedsider.org, an online resource for birth control for men and women, #MentorMonday gave the audience what they needed and wanted in a conversation centered around such a controversial topic.
Every single relationship seminar that Paul conducts always includes a discussion about birth control. “Birth control is the most substantial thing that has impacted dating and impacted marriage that has ever been created.” Paul decided HR laws be damned and had an interesting convo with the producer of #MentorMonday, Ella (@EllaLaverne) about her current sex situation, much to Ella’s chagrin…but I feel so much closer to Ella now. Silly season has begun. (more…)
Introducing, the new co-host of Our World with Black Enterprise, Paul Carrick Brunson, woo hoo!! The entire #MentorMonday sends congratulations to our Paul C. Brunson. We’re all excited, as is Paul!
Paul gave a shout out to attendees of the one-day #MentorMondayMastermind Intensive that he and Ella Rucker facilitated in Washington, DC the weekend prior. Billionaire (yes, with a ‘B’) entrepreneur, and one of Paul’s two billionaire mentors, Enver Yűcel, stopped by and shared with attendees about his entrepreneurial journey, grilled attendees about our business concepts and answered every question he was asked. My highlight, aside from getting to ask him a question about marketing when he was a young start-up, was after he left the room, he came back in almost immediately to take a pic and tweet about his experience with us. Talk about the power of social media!
ICYMI: Fear not if you were unable to attend the November 1 #MentorMondayMastermind Intensive, Paul and Ella are hosting another One-day Mastermind Intensive on December 13, and this one will be live in Washington, DC AND livestreaming for those unable to travel to DC. Winning!
Now let’s talk about building a business around your authentic self with Digital Strategist and Humor Writer, Luvvie Ajayi!
Paul says, “Luvvie’s narrative of truth and authenticity is in her body of work.” (more…)
