Different Strokes For Different Folks

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Ever run into someone you totally disagreed with?

Happens pretty regularly… doesn’t it.

My grandpa used to tell me as a kid, “If we both agreed on everything, one of us isn’t needed”.

Today I share an extreme example of some folks who are clearly NOT like-minded and couldn’t disagree with each other more.

The great news is, there’s no need to judge folks who aren’t like-minded to us.

Simply let them follow their path… and we’ll keep following our path.

I’m rootin for ya,

Real Life Wedding Crasher

Friday, January 6th, 2017

I had to run to my bank yesterday afternoon, and as I’m standing at the counter, waiting for the teller to process my transaction, I notice something that I hadn’t noticed before.

A small sign with 5 unique little factoids about the teller.

On this visit, my teller was Jeremy, and one of his factoids proudly announced, “I’ve been a groomsman in 24 weddings since the year 2004”.

Needless to say, this caught my attention… big time.

I immediately counted on one hand the number of times that I’d been a groomsman in someone’s wedding.


And that’s over the period of my entire life.

Twice in 51 years.

This guy’s been a groomsman 24 times in less than 13 years.

No matter how you look at it, that’s a unique accomplishment, and yes, it compelled me to begin a conversation that never would’ve happened, if I hadn’t read his little factoid sign.

My curiosity was piqued and I had to know more.

How did he accomplish such a feat?

How did he get invited to be in so many weddings?

Is he trying to set some kind of world’s record?

And there’s a HUGE lesson here, when it comes to you, and your business.

See if you can spot it before I reveal it.

Back in 2003, I was down in Tampa visiting my friend Chet.

We were heading from Tampa out to Clearwater Beach to stay at his condo for the weekend.

On the drive out, he asks me, “So Kev, what did you used to do before you owned a cleaning and restoration business”?

‘Oh”, I reply, “I used to be an Alaska Fisherman”.

He then went crazy, asking me all kind of questions about fishing in Alaska -what was it like? – was it dangerous? – how many years did I do it? – weren’t you scared for your life? – did you make big bucks?

We then spent the entire hour long drive talking about what it was like to be an Alaska Fisherman.

When we arrive at his condo, Chet says, “I can’t believe that I’ve known you for several years, and you’ve never told me this before.

You need to start sharing this story with people”.

That’s when I began to learn how powerful our life’s stories REALLY are.

And yes, you too have stories to share.

Stories that will make people curious.

Stories that will let people get to know you.

Stories that will create a bond with people.

And just like the teller at my bank, when people hear your story, they’ll be compelled to get to know you better.

If you browse my blog, you’ll see that I do very little selling in my communication with you.

For the most part, all I do is share stories.

Have you figured out why?

If so, post your answer below.

I’ll be back next Tuesday with the correct answer.

Meanwhile… watch your inbox on Sunday and Monday because I’ll be introducing you to my friend Charles Byrd and he’s got something really cool to share with you.

Huge Tip For Building Relationship Capital

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Luke H - Manny G

I just connected two more rock stars… Manny Goldman and Luke Havard.

I LOVE doing this stuff and it’s become a daily occurrence!

When I make introductions at this level, I don’t simply make the connection, and then bow out.

No Siree!

I make time in my schedule so I can join in on the conversation when they connect.

There’s 3 reasons for doing this.

1. It lets me formally introduce the two people I’m connecting.

2. Listening in on their conversation gives me additional insight and information that allows me to get even better at making high level connections like this.

3. I discover other connections that I might need to make for them.

There’s also another HUGE side benefit to all this!

I get paid to listen in on conversations that other people would never be privy to, where the people I connect share intimate details about the inner goings on of their companies.

This added benefit also comes with serious responsibility.

In doing what I do all these years, I’ve earned the respect of these people, and the reason they let me into their world is because they trust me.

They trust me to make connections for them.

They trust me to maintain confidentiality.

They trust me to value their time.

When you have this kind of respect and trust with people… it takes your relationship capital to a whole new level.

And when you have relationship capital like this… the financial capital takes care of itself.

I’d love to hear how YOU create relationship capital.

If you have a process or story to share, you’re welcome to comment below.

The goal in doing this is to help everyone in our community get even better at maximizing the relationships in our lives.

To your success,
Kevin Thompson

Would An Open Q&A Call Be Valuable For You?

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

I LOVED the interaction we had on the last email and blog post.

Many of you submitted your questions on the blog, and I responded with the answers you needed.

As we went through this process, it made me think… what if I were to host an open Q&A call for you at no charge.

We’d host this call on a teleseminar platform so you and the other members of our community could call in at a specific date and time.

Not only would you be able to get your exact questions answered, you’d also be able to meet, hear from, and interact in person so to speak with some of the other amazing folks in this community.

If this is something you’d get value from, type the word YES in the comments below.

Assuming we get at least 100 people who respond, I’ll move forward with this and host an open Q&A call for you within the next couple weeks.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Being A Receiver Is The REAL You

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Over the last couple days I’ve shared two incredibly personal stories that reveal my own struggle with giving and receiving.

I’ve always been really good at receiving, but I was terrible when it came to graciously receiving, or accepting help from others.

All because I never wanted to be perceived as a “taker”.

Those first two experiences definitely caused me to get better at receiving, but the experience I’ll share today was the game-changer.

It took about 3 years to have these experiences in real time, but in sharing them with you, I’m going to compress the time frame for you to only 3 days.

Today’s message is going to be the catalyst that allows YOU to open yourself to graciously receiving from others.

Because the fact is, you’re already surrounded by people who would gladly help you!

Are You Just A “Taker”?

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Yesterday I shared an intimate story about my own struggle with receiving from others, and if you’re a great giver, it probably hit home with you in a big way.

You love giving, but like me, you don’t allow others to freely and openly give to you.

There’s many reasons for this:

You don’t want to bother or be a burden to other people.

You don’t want to be perceived as a “taker”.

You don’t feel worthy.

Whatever your reasons, today I’d like to introduce you to another reality.

The reality that you’re NOT a burden to others.

The reality that you’re NOT a “taker”.

The reality that you ARE worthy.

The reality that you’re already surrounded by people who WANT to give to you.

After watching this video and scoring yourself, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

See you again tomorrow with the 3rd installment. It’s going to be HUGE for you!
