So collapsing into a bloody mess might seem an odd thing to celebrate, but it was the seed of an amazing ten years for me. And, in fact, one of my goals with Thrive Global is to provide a softer wake-up call, to provide the catalyst for other people to get on a different course that can bring just as many positive changes to their lives without hitting the wall–or the floor!
Each weekly call required a little pre-work on their part (usually just reviewing something) and had a theme: content, marketing, format, logistics. I worked hard over the preceding week to have something tangible for them to give feedback on, and took careful notes during the call itself, following up on every point or question raised.
I chose 10 (plus a few friends), and asked them to commit to four 1-hour video calls with me over the course of a month, in exchange for a free ticket to the course once it was ready (note that this wouldn’t be worth much with a non-premium course) plus a promise to share what I learned from the experience (in the form of this blog post, plus a follow-up call to answer questions)
