What I Learned At The Biz Expo – It May Surprise You
We were out and about and one of the things that we did is we went up to Seattle to a small business expo. This small business expo put on by Bill Walsh and the Powerteam International, which is awesome, we love Bill. There were about 3,000 people, and what we were up there for was the Helo, my newest love. This thing was an interesting experience. We went up there because we wanted to introduce people to the Helo and meet entrepreneurs that were desiring to have a business that allowed them to create massive amounts of income or a little bit of income, whatever it is that they wanted, in addition to having the medical attributes that this little device holds. It’s a monitoring device for a lot of the health characteristics that we have on our body, and there’s a lot of things to it, which you could private message me if you want to know more.
What was fascinating about this show was to watch the people, and what I learned about people was that it’s pretty fun. Here’s what I’m going to ask you to do is visualize yourself at a fair or one down the mall, down the corridor of the mall or being at a business expo like this. Whatever it is, walk down the aisle with me and notice if any of these things fit you. We’re at our booth and I’m in front of the booth, and somebody was behind the booth, our friends, Lisa and Heather, were there, and Rafael. Some of us were out front, one was in the back and the other was cruising through the other booths to talk to people and find out what was there.
We are there allowing people to come up and look at our big banner that we had going on and all of this. I go up and I say, “Have you ever heard of the Helo?” What I loved the most was watching people. Being a people watcher is very interesting because you can learn a lot about yourself, and you can learn a lot about the human condition, people in general. Some people come down to the booth and they’re trucking down, and they do a widespread U-turn. Some people will look somewhere else or look down, they’ll pretend they’re on their phone or do whatever. They didn’t want to look at you. Other people, they boldly walk right up, going up and down reading all those things. Other people will go over and they’re looking at the monitor and the six-minute video thing we had going on an endless loop. What I loved watching is how people deal with their discomfort.
One of the things that I enjoyed watching is how people deal with their concerns, and what things create some trepidation or discomfort for them. I know what this is like because I’ve gone to the mall. Have you ever seen those kiosks where they want to hand you a free this, they want to curl your hair or they want to do these things? I’ve been up and down those so many times. I have so many samples of things that have preservatives and things in them which I don’t use, and I found myself going and I go around them. I was watching how people do this and I noticed that the majority of people were tentative. They would walk by or they’d stop temporarily, and I was in the middle of speaking to people constantly. It was a very busy show and it was awesome because we met over 100 people that asked us for more information. What was exciting and what was interesting was to watch how the people that were interested would skate around what it was they were looking for, or the others that were direct with what it was that they were desiring, and they wanted to know more information or the people where you could see terror in their eyes.
My question to you is how do you be in your own life? How do you be in your own world? How do you be when you are confronted with things that are a little bit frightening? It’s not good, bad, right or wrong, but one of the greatest things about life is to get to know yourself. It’s the adventure that we’ve got here going on. Who are you? How do you be? What things create uncomfortableness for you? How do you be in a situation like that? Are you bold and you walk right up and you talk to people? Some people will go, “This is the most awesome thing ever.”
One person who was in a booth around the corner, I was going up and down and seeing what other things were there. I stopped, we were talking and I told her about the Helo and she said, “I can’t even believe that. I want one right now,” and she literally took her credit card, her American Express card, out of her purse and handed it to me and said, “I want one. Go back to your booth and get the paperwork, and I’m going to buy one right this minute.” I said, “Do you always give your credit card to people that you have just met?” We laughed about that. She said, “I don’t care, this is so awesome.” There was a person who was bold, and she was very excited about what it was that she got her hands on.
Other people that I spoke to at different booths, they hardly had anybody around their booth but I went right up to them. They looked down, they didn’t speak directly to me, they were very quiet, and they were not very forthcoming. I thought to myself, “These people are probably not going to go home with a lot of leads or a lot of business because people want to feel welcome.” People like feeling safe, so if you bump up with somebody like that, then most of the time people are going to go, “That’s a little bit too much for me.” Other people will feel they are in a place where they might want to meet that kind of energy, and other people will back down. Who are you? How do you be? What circumstances bring up your empowerment, and what circumstances will create you feeling suppressed or more quiet? It’s an interesting thing to watch because the more you know yourself; the more successful you will be in your business, in your life, with your communication skills which is critical, and virtually every area of your life.
One of the things I’m going to be speaking about more is about entrepreneurship, and what it takes to be an independent, powerful, self-directed, self-motivated, successful being in the world. I’m going to ask you in another session, what do you think entrepreneur means? Because you might be surprised what it is that I’m going to speak about that, so stayed tuned for more of those. What I would like to ask you to do, is would you please comment, send those little hearts around, those little thumbs-up things that go around so we can know that you’re with us and that you’re feeling the feeling.
My big request is I have a new business page and it’s called Wake Up With E. It’s on Facebook. If you would be kind enough to go to that page, Wake Up With E, and like that page, that would be awesome. Ask your friends to do the same because Facebook, it wants you to have a whole bunch of likes and I like being liked, so go there and like that because I’m going to be doing more things over there. Your support with that is helpful and important to me. Thank you for being with me. I can’t wait for the things that are coming up that we’re going to talk about some more. Your question is what would it take for me to be aware of my fears? Don’t have to do anything with that, ask yourself the question. Because the more you know yourself, the more you will understand why some things work, some things don’t, why you play small, why you play big. Why you have what it is that you want, why you get what you want, and why sometimes you don’t get what you want. That’s your adventure and I’ll look forward to connecting with you next time. Until then, feel a hug.
