As you probably all know (or anyone that follows me on Facebook or Instagram) I have been in America for the last two and half weeks. I took the kids to show them America and experience travel and what they can learn from it.
While I was there I attended Loral Langemeier’s Ultimate Millionaire Summit (UMS) so I got to mix it with some of the brightest minds and get my learnings on. It was a 3 day event held in San Diego – a great city and if you have the opportunity to go – you must. There was also a kids UMS being held at the same time, so it was a great opportunity to pass on the education of the future entrepreneurs of the world. My children Luka 15 and Carlo 10, went over with a plan and to sell some goodies to their USA counterparts. They did and they were the most successful kids in the program, making a gross total of $640USD and net $380USD, after they paid back the wholesaler (Dad, Me). They had to set market prices and see which items sold, they had Tim Tams and Boomerangs and a few other odds and ends. They also had to do currency conversions as the items brought in Australia using AUD and sold in USD and what they need to pay back the wholesaler in USD. They also learned how to enter conversations, shake people’s hands, ask for the business, have fun and make some new friends.
I also met some great new friends and some potential business partners in the states, there were property deals, stock market trading, franchises to invest in oil & gas, speed reading & memory courses, new technologies apps, breakout sessions, travel companies and loads, loads more.
You know the biggest part was actually turning up and going to the events. If you are in business and not make a habit of traveling overseas for a seminars, events or training I highly recommend the experience. You never know where introductions will lead and the great people you will meet. Just Do It! It is about taking action very much like investing in property – there are always deals but you need to step up to the plate and take some action and do it.
So What has America taught me? That Americans are still the best salespeople, that to build wealth you need diversification, education and continued learnings are part of both business and life in general, to take action and the world is your market – not just Australia
And what resonated with me the most …… Real entrepreneurs don’t have a job or work – they have a lifestyle!
Happy Travels and would love to know where you have last travelled and what events you have been going too. Please leave a comment so I can see what you have been up to!
