A humble person sits in the front row and takes notes.
– Jim Marker
Recently, we had our annual conference for entrepreneurs GROW! 2010. It was an outstanding success. Here are some photos of the event:
If you missed it, you really need to come next year. If you sign up now, you’ll save BIG $$$$, click here for details. Anyway, enough selling. At the conference, one of speakers was Jim Marker. Jim is one of the most successful life insurance sales professionals in the country. Today he spends much of his time teaching others how to be successful. He was a big hit at the conference, to say the least. The quote above was one that Jim shared with us. It really made me think.
How many times do you go to a seminar and sit in the back? Why do you sit back there? Why have I sat in the back? Most of the time it’s because I’m afraid the speaker isn’t very good and I might need to make an escape. But most of the time, there is something I could learn. Even a bad speaker often has something you can learn, if we’re going to be honest. We would all be better served to sit in the front row, with our ears and our eyes open, ready to learn. How about we both try it next time?
