🔥HOW TO GET OVER 1 MILLION VIEWS ON YOUR TED TALK🔥
Sometimes people on my social media say, "You shouldn't try to be famous... no one else has."
Ummm... excuse me?!
That is totally FALSE.
First, there's nothing wrong with being famous if you use it for a good purpose.
Second, the people you see and admire who have millions of views on their videos secretly use strategies behind the scenes to optimize getting more visibility.
That's why Today Monday, May 13 at 2 pm EST, I'm invited my friend, Azul Terronez to share how his TED talk has gotten over 1 million views... here is the video interview!
And how yours can too.
If you haven't done a TED talk already, this is still for you as it's great to start planning ahead...
And if you have done one already, you can use the info he'll share to expand your reach even more.
Doing a TED talk is a great way to get more exposure for your story and message... so I suggest everyone add it to your bucket list, especially if you're on a mission to make the world a better place.

☠️REFLECTIONS FROM A YEAR IN SILENCE: MY TOP 5 LESSONS☠️
A lot of people have been asking me what the biggest takeaways are from my year of meditation in silence.
So today I’d like to share them with you.
However, here’s a warning and disclaimer in advance: The techniques I’ve used to find inner peace and balance are not for everybody.
I’ll always dive deep to find my purpose and balance in my life.
But that also means facing my dark side and trauma in unconventional and non-traditional ways.
So be forewarned, what I share with you might be dangerous for you. And it may not be healthy for you to try what I do.
But I want to be honest about my journey and what it takes for ME to find inner peace. Because I leave no stone unturned and although it’s not always pretty, I will continue to carve my own path and hope you do the same.
🐾WHEN WAS YOUR "CALLING" IN YOUR HERO'S JOURNEY?🐾
I believe everyone has a calling… a moment when you’re meant to transition to a higher level but it’s not easy. According to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey trajectory, you usually refuse the call several times before giving in to it.
But it’s one of the biggest moments in your life and necessary to grow. It’s that Hollywood movie opening scene that would kickoff as the cliffhanger but you’d have to watch it until the end to find out how if you make it… or not.
I’d say that from the Ordination ceremony at the monastery for me has been my moment of calling. What followed after that has made me wonder if I'd make it many times, but I’m still here.
I’d like to know yours too. So many people tell me, “I have so many stories, which ones do I share and how?”
Let’s start here as this is your kickoff cliffhanger point too.
*ANNOUNCEMENT: Next Monday, May 13, my friend Coach Azul will join me at 2 pm EST to share how to get over a million views on your TED talk. Imagine the impact you can make if millions of people hear your message! Mark it on your calendar as he’ll answer your questions live then too.

🏆4 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW ABOUT THOUGHT LEADERSHIP (BUT NEED TO KNOW IN ORDER TO INSPIRE MILLIONS)🏆
If you know you're born to make a bigger impact in the world…
If you're humble, authentic, and want others to struggle less than you so willing to step into the limelight for a good purpose...
I’d like to share with you some key tips about Thought Leadership that you probably don’t know about that can make all the difference between staying stuck or reaching your goals.
And it’s probably NOT what you think.
Thought Leadership is THE most powerful positioning in the 21st Century to show your authority so watch this to help you stay inspired, confident, and unstoppable.
----------- 12-WEEK CHALLENGE: WILL YOU SHARE YOUR HERO'S JOURNEY WITH ME?
I believe everyone has a Hollywood movie story in them that is worthy of making the big screen...
But first, you've got to know which parts of your story to share (I'm sure there is so much good stuff to choose from) and then know how share it so people can know who you are and cheer for you throughout the ups and downs of your life so they want to follow you and support you.
So starting next week Monday at 2 pm EST, I'm going to take a break about sharing the business trainings (you can watch all the replays in the video section on this Facebook business page)...
And offer a 12-week challenge to help you share your Hero's Journey following the 12 stages that have been popularized by Joseph Campbell, focusing on one stage per week.
Pretty much every popular movie or book follows this format for a reason:
It's simple, easy to follow, it stops you from wandering off on tangents, and it helps you decide which stories throughout your life to focus on that are the most captivating and worthy of sharing.
I'll share my personal story of how I went from being a small town farm girl to jet setting around the world with celebrities to the monastery to now help amazing people become Purposely Famous...
And I hope you feel inspired to write down, record, and share your own unique story too.
If you'd like to get a head start, go to www.purposelyfamous.com as I share the gist of my story there and after downloading my free ebook, will encourage you to start sharing yours too. ... See MoreSee Less
And I love to teach what I've learned and experienced in my. Journey

But I have been able to transform poverty, broken relationships, and cultural ignorance into healing eating, great budgeting an exciting, innovative life.

Heroes Story, what do you think? " o Walking as a teenager, young adult, approximately five miles as, from college to my house. NO money to take a bus, and the bus was a luxury. Mom’s gotta work to feed mouths, but I lived above and beyond and was taking college classes…walking and swimming on the beaches of Maldives, because I’m crazy good at budgeting and being low maintenance and treated myself at 33 as an independent Woman ! "
This sounds great can't wait for it to start!
Yeah !! Thought leadership: change the expectation
So I'll use it in my sales script too !

🦄HOW TO BUILD A FOLLOWING ON MULTIPLE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS🦄
So there’s only one “You”...
...With multiple titles, brands, and purposes (Sometimes you’re serious, business-like, fun & funny, philanthropic; sometimes you sell a product, other times a service, etc.)
…There are multiple places to build a following: Email lists, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube…
...Then spending time to post and share on each…
...You’ve gotta get engagement on each to get paid by sponsors one day (But they won’t want to pay you if you don’t have any engagement)...
...And convert followers to customers so they’re happy paying you to change their life.
Maybe once in awhile, you’ll want to take a break as building all of his is VERY time consuming.
So can I set the record straight? Today I’ll answer these questions:
-Do you really need to post multiple times every day on each platform as all the social media gurus advise?
-How do you build a brand that shows ALL of your diverse brands, personalities, products and services?
-Which social media platforms should you use and for what?
-Should you repurpose content for each platform, and how would you do that quickly?
-Why do some people have tons of followers while others sharing content of equal quality don’t?
You want answers like this when you’re ready to get PAID FOR YOUR PURPOSE…
🎯Speaking of which...
I announced last week an invite to apply to share your story in the first book of the PURPOSELY FAMOUS BOOK SERIES that will be released soon.
I’ll teach you how to build your own following so you get more authority in your own right AND cash in to sell more books and earn $19 each per book as an affiliate!
Excited to share more about all of this in my FB live training and I’m psyched to work with you on a closer level AND make it a win-win for all.
FYI - Next week Monday I’ll be in Sao Paulo, Brazil so I’ll pop in real quick to say “Oi!” at 2 pm EST instead of doing a full biz training. In 2014, I went to the World Cup in Rio then didn’t leave for 3 years (seriously!)...so super excited to go back and share some Brazilian *amor* with you 🙂
-------------- Here's my Purposely Famous story... I'm excited to hear yours soon too!
YOU TRUSTED THEM, THEN GOT BURNED: HOW TO RECOVER FROM REJECTION AND RISE TO THE TOP
I’ve heard it way too many times:
“I bought too many courses that didn’t work.”
“I trusted this coach/mentor/guru to help me build my business and they took my money instead.”
“We had great rapport… talked about amazing ideas to change the world together, then… CRICKETS.
“I invested in this marketing company / Hired this person to do my social media / Paid a publicist to get more exposure and... they didn’t deliver.”
That’s money down the drain that you couldn’t afford to lose, time lost that you can’t get back, and you’re left feeling defeated and doubting yourself...right?
Unfortunately, I’ve been there myself.
I’ve always been a trusting person, maybe too much, so had to learn the hard way on how to recover from business faux pas and up my game to get more profits & respect than before.
Was it painful?
I was trained in a fast-paced cut-throat world where big money, power, and influence and a “take no prisoners” mentality was the norm. Being nice didn’t cut it. My small town, idealistic, “save the world” mentality was kicked to the curb.
But in hindsight, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Being thrown into the shark’s den head first, it’s either sink or swim. And I swam.
The good news: You can still be compassionate, purposeful, and kickass at business but you’ve gotta learn the secrets to stay confident, savvy, and smarter than those that bring you down.
And that’s what I’m sharing with you how to master today.
Your mission is too important to be undercut or undervalued by bullies in the business world.
And here’s a shocker: Sometimes the biggest bully you face is YOURSELF (I’ll explain more about that too).
So let’s get ya on an equal playing field with the “big” boys so you truly are a force to reckon with for the greater good.
Spread the Purposely Famous love by sharing this video or commenting by midnight tonight and win a FREE 1-1 coaching session with me!
Let’s dive in to see what’s working or not in your business and life so you live your highest Purposely Famous potential.
DID YOU KNOW THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU TO BE *FAMOUS?*
Seriously…but it’s not what you think.
It’s even better ☺
Because there is more than one kind of FAME…and I want you to have the GOOD kind. So if you:
-Want to do something more meaningful with your life - Want to get clarity on your most powerful thoughts that make you a thought leader - Are ready to follow a proven path to make 6 -7 figures and beyond - Want to know what it takes to go from being unknown to Hollywood for all the RIGHT reasons…
Then yep, THE WORLD needs you to be PURPOSELY FAMOUS.
My name is Karin Roest, and I grew up in a small farm town, feeling like a nobody.
After college, I started jet setting around the world with Grammy Award Winning musicians and helping highly paid TED talk speakers, New York Times Bestsellers, Nobel Peace Prize Winners, and Award Winning Philanthropists inspire millions and make millions.
It’s easy to share the same stuff that every other expert out there promises will solve all of your problems…how to get clear on your messaging, how to get high paying clients, set up a sales funnel, get publicity, but also YOU NEED EVEN MORE THAN THAT…
Because if you’re not getting the behind the scenes CELEBRITY SECRETS and applying them to your business and life to elevate your success…
And if you’re not getting the exposure, profits, or if your biggest dreams aren’t happening…
simultaneously, I have another feedback, who is grateful they met me in their life...
I appreciate that Karen thank you very much
now having a purposeful product is helpful because it's helping me process being not taken serious, or people not skilled enough, or experience, etc...
I actually love to see people succeeding
The people who want free copies do not want to share or assist with spreading word.
Just using this as an analogy but it's almost like double dutch but I like to wait patiently when the right and proper opportunity
it's giving me a space to build that authority... I think Im getting it... Im grateful for them
I've been rejected so much in my life in business and in dating I don't care I use that to build myself stronger there loss sorry I'm late I was working on a film set all weekends I just woke up I'm tired lol
Now that I have a product, I see it clearer, what I am grateful for is that awareness, but also it is protecting me. I am very generous and just want to help, but people don't see how much you give, expect, even demand it (your resources), and then when you do give an offer, they act dumb
"Hey I've got this xyz - Would you like to go deeper with me, bc I have programs that help you solve this" Noted!
I feel like get to directly help them, they are supportive
I missed part because I had a phone call
Thank you Karin :)
I direct them to the free Kindle Unlimited copies. I still get royalties from that
I am really grateful !!! Because many people want to...oh nevermind, I was going to vent about something else...people...
We often forget to be kind to ourselves.
What about when people want you to give "free feedback/blurb" without offering samples/book.
really enjoying the celebrity pit !! some unique to tribe
Your important too
It's that feeling people relating to you
The most common statement is "Are you going to give me a book because I know you?"
Yes. Always hear "Can I have a book?"
I do admire many celebrities, because they seem good at "shaking of the haters"
I actually and kind of skeptic, that, some people just aren't rooting for your success...and a qualifier: competitive
Really great tips that are easily implemented! Thank you!
I just want to share my Life and way of living to give people a good Inspiring way to believe and think
I love & think all ethnicities are beautiful
I want them to walk away saying they were blessed ,healed in heart ,or mind or soul like they were theraperized
Have great day
Hi Karin Thanks for Caring

I'm just trying to find a spot to set up at and purchase the Equipment for the business just starting there before I do those other things I share with you that I want to do
Im not shy! Im gonna be somebody someday, you can bet your hard earn dollar I will!
Ouchhhh… When I was called these names by bullies in school when I was little, I ran home in tears so many times I lost count.
But today, there’s a new trend going on… so I’ll use these derogatory terms as my source of strength, thank you very much!
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names… can help you get more media attention than ever.
Here are some examples of celebs and ordinary people on a mission that are taking their worst nicknames and biggest pain points and turning them into inspirational book titles, speaking topics, article headlines, and making them viral sensations.
And how you can do the same too.
This is more than getting attention and views.
You’ll finally have an enormous sense of freedom when you’re able to say out loud your weaknesses and get in the last laugh, and use them as a vehicle for the greater good.

---WHAT IS PURPOSELY FAMOUS?---
Before you get more visibility in the world... it's about being "famous" to yourself and your soul without the bright lights and applause.
Based off my experience building the brands of celebrities for 15 years, I share A-LIST strategies to help ordinary people like YOU who have a purposeful message, service, or product so you can strategically build a purposeful business and finally get on a clear path to inspire millions with your message.
Another one that I was a bit uncomfortable to share. But I had big lips and people would call them . . . DSL, I was slow though to know what that even meant, cause I was quiet and reserved. I used to cover my mouth a lot. But I found a transformation term: DSL: A Camera opportunity to Photogenic Real Lips.....hahahah haha (I can't with myself)
Sorry, my ability to access is limited, but can't wait to re listen ! You are a blessing and gift !!
I've been teased and picked on for being short growing up my whole life and that's why I work so hard to help others and be the person who I am today
I love being myself rich or poor I don't care either way I don't care if people don't like me either I love who I am I love where I'm going so I'll always be me
In the past I was "too tall", "talked too much", and my hair was "too big'......I'm now paid to talk and get lots of compliments on my hair and height!
The lasted thing is getting harassing comments on social media, I do intuitive readings and energy work. People post that I'm a fraud and stealing innocent peoples money.....I gatta ignore it but it makes me wonder if I need to respond to their hateful untrue comments.
oh yeah, I can share here my stuff from before that carried over I think..."friends" dissing my body, too skinny - chicken legs, don't whatever else they are obsessed with,(but actually I have a really healthy fit great figure and still do) people ewwing how my house smelled, like curry and spices, testament to growing up on home cooked food instead of the SAD diet (Standard American diet), and my families religion and idols, and the elephant...people making fun...
I AM SO LOVING ME! 🙌🔥🙌
I'm keeping my gut! Its very renaissancey!! 😍😍😍😍
Perfect timing because of the lack of statistics I found this weekend
I forgive you, I’m sorry, thank you, I love you
I was and still am extremely pale, nerd, and poor. Let's just say there were a lot of things.
peole would ask me "How much Goodyear paid me?!" in grade school. Its funny this guy who asked me that I saw him in college when I was all hot and skinny and he got fat, drunk, and ugly. It was a great moment in my life! Loved it
Hurt people hurt people
🤓 4-eyed quiet girl

Sticks and Bones was one
Sorry I’m late but I’m here

Good morning Karin
I was called whop and got beat up in school for being italian I don't let stereotype define me I define who I am
I used to have a mole on my nose that looked like a booger lol when I was teased I would just say "But it made you pay attention to my face!"
Love this, girl. Can you share more about relational "techniques" Taylor and Katy use? I'm launching a personal development brand called Born Iconic in June and am looking to do it MEGA differently!
Men are from mars women from Venus, John Gray
Always love listening to you talk and ur so beautiful and amazing thanks for the inspiration
✌️WHY IS THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE WITH YOU IN IT?✌️
Most people think that reaching a ‘celebrity’ level of authority, wealth and impact isn’t possible for them.
But, the good news is… They’re wrong!
The world doesn’t need more famous people who never make a positive impact. Because, what we need is more everyday people, just like you, getting known for spreading more goodwill, so more solutions reach the masses. Right?
If you’re someone who is really good at what you do…
Clients and colleagues sing your praises...
But feel like something is still missing...
Let’s get to the ROOT of why reaching your fullest potential isn’t happening yet and how to change it so it does.
I’m not talking about upgrading your skills and knowledge in your business… those are things you’ll always have to do.
Because before the world knows how awesome you are, you have to know yourself first. This is the foundation.
This is not about ego, but about building BULLETPROOF CONFIDENCE to know your value and self-worth so that when you do go out in the world and share your story your gifts, your skills, and mission, you have bulletproof confidence so no one can take you down.
So let’s do the “Purposely Famous Humble Brag” and tell me this: If you had a consistent level of confidence 100% of the time…
⭐️Who would you be? ⭐️Who would you help and why is doing this so important? ⭐️What could you buy and where would you go?
AND What about the people that you help... ⭐️Who could they be if they were inspired by you? ⭐️Where could they go ⭐️What could they buy ⭐️What impact can they make with your positive influence on them?
Another good question to answer is:
If you had all the money in the world or lost everything, if you became paralyzed or became ill or lost all of your loved ones or had access to all the riches and luxury in the world...WHO WOULD YOU STILL BE? What core values can no one and nothing take away from you?
In business, every company has something called a niche statement: I help X group of people overcome X problem so they reach X solution.
What is yours?
Don’t be shy...BE PURPOSELY BOLD!
Comment below, share this with a purposeful friend as the world is waiting to be inspired by your purpose and have a Purposely Amazing day! ... See MoreSee Less
It's super important for folks on a mission to stick together because we have fears (just like everyone else) but we HAVE to overcome them in order to live our Purpose! It really takes a lot of courage and it takes a village to keep you inspired and focused
The world is a better with me because the music I make moves the hearts and touches the souls of millions worldwide.
The world is a better place with me in because I am a kind, loving, brilliant, soulful, creative, abundant and generous man.
The world is a better place in it because I make people feel connected to themselves and the inspiration and love in their hearts.
The world is a better place with me in it because I inspire people's creativity.
The world is a better place with me in it because I am a joy to be around.
The world is a better place with me in it because I am present and attentive to those in my company be it in person or online.
The world is a better place with me in it because people feel safe to share their ideas and inspirations with me.
The world is a better place with me in because the wealth and fame I create gives people opportunities and inspires people to follow their own dreams.
The world is a better place with me because I am a kind friend, love, family and community member.
The world is a better place with me in it because my writing uplifts and moves people.
The world is a better place with me in it because my podcast is cool, inspiring and thought provoking.
The world is a better place with me in it because my light warms the room and invites people to be their best self.
The world is better place with me in it because my orchestral music moves people to tears and makes people feel joyful and full of possibility.
The reason why the world is better with me in it is because I am dedicated to helping people turn their lives around from the inside out and make life "Suite!"
Why do I say make life Suite?"
Suite is pronounced sweet. They sound the same. But the musical meaning of Suite is multiple instrumentals combined into one composition. This is similar to the facets and traits we are born with that are connected together to make us unique.
Make life suite means to renew your mind to manifest the abundant life-creating power within you. You are a temple for infinite intelligence all housed in one mind and body.
You’re like a Suite. Mentally, physically, spiritually all in one person. These facets can be in harmony or not.
Essentially, I help people grow in positivity and love and that makes the world a better place.
Right! I am so BOLD & COURAGEOUS!
I AM WISE!
The world is better with me in it because I can take what seems like really complex spiritual concepts and make them super-practical for even the Average Joe! Spirituality should make life more simple!
The world is a better place with me in it because I help women to unleash their inner queens to feel empowered and acomplish anything they want in life. I strongly believe that lack of confidence is the root of all evil and I am on a mission to help everyone I can to be and feel like a queen... Beautiful and pwerful 👸👸
I'm on a mission to bring Spirituality into Practicality for humanity; I focus on helping high-achievers break through ruts to find fulfillment and manifest an epic, aligned life using a simple spiritual strategy based in Ancient Wisdom!!! At my core, I am devoted to the exploration of the Spiritual Realms & Philosophy in order to uncover the most useful methods to live life to its fullest and share as much as I can with others!
Because I bring Me With great things Good Changes Love peace &😇Joyfulness
wow .... I have no clue... so bad 😞
(I have to add that I achieved kind of celebrity status in my field, because I'm pretty good in what I do, but still, I'm not happy with it. I don't know what's my purpose)
The world is a better place with me in it because my genuine intent is to leave the world a better place than it was when I arrived. I'm also a realist and understand the intricate ways in which impact is more, well... impactful than intent.
I'm on a mission to educate as many people as possible in how to live their lives, and operate their businesses, ethically and sustainably. The current systems in place do not have the best interest of the general public at heart.
I believe it is possible to meet our needs, while remaining neutrally impactful to the world around us. I know that those who wish to make a positive impact are capable - regardless of their current financial situation or social status.
I love helping people accept that positive impact requires honest, and sometimes harsh, self-analysis. Then I love watching them realize who they've always been. It's an honor to validate and support them as they begin living a genuine and positively impactful life. <3
Missed the live, but glad there is a recording !! But I listened to last weeks and was amazing. My niche statement so far is: Incorporate physical/emotional wellness as a means to innovation, social change and peace.
The world is a better place because I can break down things and make it simple for people to understand and see what they are not seeing. Plus, I want people to see there's light to be seen in every situation! And, there just ain't no-BODY like muah! I'm super coolio, fun, amazing, charismatic, hilarious, oh, did I mention cool, too?! I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll! Lololololo....i love being humble!! 😍😍🤡😉😉
I have a story to tell. Both with my writing and my personal story about what I have been through.
The world is better with me in it because I am compassionate towards all peoples, animals and the environment.
Thank you 💕
Everyone has a story
Very good stuff...
My wife and I take care of 19 cats in our house and feed 9 more outside. People move and leave their pets but feel very good taking them in and feeding them. So need to get better always in writing and comedy. These animals are fantastic and depend on myself and my wife.
I did the same thing in school only no sports
I have been doing a lot of that for too long and Decided to LET IT GO! 🔥🙌🔥
🍉INFLUENCERS: Your Online Course DONE in the next 30 minutes with me🍉
What do these famous people have in common:
⭐️Singer Christina Aguilera ⭐️Author Malcolm Gladwell ⭐️TV personality & chef Gordon Ramsay ⭐️Tennis maven Serena Williams ⭐️Designer Marc Jacobs...?
Answer: They all have online courses.
Are you ready to join the ranks with them too?
Yes, these once untouchable celebs and industry leaders have put on their teaching hats to give you homework, action plans, and coaching you directly on how to be the best just like they are in their respective fields.
Let me be clear though: This is NOT about becoming a celebrity like them or becoming one just because they are…
This isn’t even about creating an online course just because everyone else is doing it…
It’s about packing your wisdom so that you can impact millions of people while making more money with less stress so you can be creative and take control of every aspect of your life too.
The online education industry is predicted to reach $335 billion in the next 6 years. Are you ready to get your fair share of the pie?
At this rate, I believe that every smart influencer who stays ahead of the game will have their own online course as it’s the fastest revenue stream to make an unlimited amount of money and help an unlimited amount of people.

I was invited this weekend to hang out at a festival with rock bands such as the Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, 311, Soul Asylum, and other rock bands from the 90’s.
I asked my assistant, “Have you heard of them before?”
She said, “Nope. I was born in the 90’s.”
Ouch. I think I’m officially old, lol 🙂
Even though these bands may not be headlining the Grammys these days either, our conversations about business, entrepreneurship, the future, and the life lessons they’ve learned from staying in the game for so long will change your business and life.
These band members and their crews have worked alongside David Bowie, U2, Prince, Madonna, and other icons and legends; they’ve seen it ALL.
And when I asked, “What makes these people successful and others not?”
Their answer will surprise you.
I’m excited to share their answers with you and my the biggest takeaways that help you create a lasting career and impact too.
If you’re not going to be a musician, these lessons can be life changing for you too.
Remember… fame is a system, so join us so you can stay ahead of the game and rock it out for many decades to come too.
It’s an important one... about real issues… and I don’t have all the answers.
So I need your help.
From society to politics and culture, the #metoo movement to gun violence and Black Lives Matter, to gender equality, equal pay, cyberbullying, and everything in between…
The truth is: The “F” word (FAME) is at the center of it all.
We live in a world where 3.2 billion people have access to the internet, so YOU...as you read this right now wherever you are, no matter where you’re from, no matter what you’re doing... are Visible. Known. Recognized. AKA FAMOUS.
SO MY QUESTION TO YOU, IS:
How can we, collectively as a society, use this virtual arena for the greater good?
Or will we sit back and let the haters, spammers, and the misinformed run the show?
And why are there still so many problems in the world, when 50% of the earth’s population can put our heads together to connect, dialog, and… from what I’d think, create intelligent solutions together?
I believe that everyone has a purpose that can change the world… and a story that can inspire millions.
I’ve seen firsthand that it is worth working hard to have an insane level of visibility, exposure, and influence so that solving the world’s biggest problems are no longer a goal, but achieved.
Because the days of the random, “Oh my gosh, I woke up and I’m a famous superstar with millions in the bank and millions of followers!” are over.
Listen, we’ve all seen people that want to be famous for fame’s sake… trashy celebrities and reality TV stars that ruin the word “Fame” for all of us.
Meanwhile, no one can deny the Oprah’s, Bill Gates’, Richard Branson’s, and Malala Yousafi’s of the world who make reaching the highest level of PURPOSEFUL fame a worthy position to be in.
Because at the end of the day, if it’s not you… it’s your kids, your grandparents, your friends, colleagues, and your enemies that will take the stage if you don’t.
🦸♀️So... WHAT ABOUT YOU?🦸♂️
What do you stand for… or will you let others choose for you?
Will you use the arena to become known for something meaningful, or will you let it all pass by and perhaps become known for nothing at all?
How will you contribute to the conversation… are you a part of the problem or the solution?
***Everyone is welcome to comment BUT please be respectful and tolerant of differing opinions so we can build each other up, not down. Anything hurtful, spiteful, or malicious will be deleted.
--------- 🙏WHO AM I?🙏
I worked behind the scenes, creating fame for celebrities & public figures for 15 years.
But jet setting around the world with the rich & famous was not fulfilling… in fact, it left me feeling desperately empty inside.
So I had I do something drastic.
I left the “real” world to do a year of meditation in silence (yep, no talking, reading, or writing for the entire year) to find a deeper purpose and meaning in my life.
The result of this is PURPOSELY FAMOUS: First, it’s about knowing your purpose, your self-worth, and value. Then, if you want to want to know a proven system on how to inspire millions with your message, I give trainings that help you get there faster.
Now, I’m on a mission to redefine fame in a positive & purposeful way and provide a platform for authentic people to inspire millions with their story.
Keep Feeling those emotions! That’s how you you release that energy and your law of attraction will change. Pray to receive God’s love, Pray to feel your Soul and Pray for your Soulmate.
We started at the smallest situation to the biggest and focus on that one speaks thing until it's a good created way or thing Be Encouraged
I'm a Success Shamaness here to help professional women breakthrough ruts to find purpose, active their feminine power and manifest an EPIC, aligned life!
Amazing how these experiences humble us and give us perspective on the responsibility we have to use our platform for good
this is why I love and admire u!!! keep giving us all these lessons so we don't have to learn the hard way
I survived and abusive 1st marriage, 2nd husband passing suddenly. I struggle with physical and mental illness and have had to completely rethink what I do and how I do it.
I grew up with an abusive mother and it trickled down to even the "friends that I had growing up. I was surrounded by people who constantly called me stupid and ugly. I worked really hard to get people like that out of my life. But then 5 years ago I married a man that became verbally and physically abusive. (I've divorced him by the way) These experiences have taught me to be strong and not to care about what people think of me. It has pushed me to be fierce and unapologetic in my flaws. My goal is to empower and motivate people who feel the way that I have felt and help them take their power back and love the person that they are.
which is similar to my mission and desire for the vulnerable
the healing process is not a one-time deal... you will keep hitting different levels of impact the trauma had on you; but the strength comes when we just allow ourselves to understand and feel it so that we can move through
we have so much to learn from each other
Feeling helpless forces you to find a purpose for what you do
I want to be purposely famous to help people use my stories and experiences to empower them and guide them to abundance on all levels
Small group so far are those who want social justice and empowerment
Your heart is felt. 🎶🙏🏻
Because it keeps bothering you and it's understandable and you keep going through the thought of it
You have a very very kind kind heart
what an authenticity.
Recurring Environmental trauma sometimes our brains don't necessarily process are you left in shock
🚀FAST TRACK YOUR INFLUENCE with Authority Statements🚀 ------------------------------------- At Purposely Famous, we love the “HUMBLE BRAG.”
It’s not for vanity or ego.
I promise you there is a good reason that you must talk about how awesome you are, or even better, and there’s a way to get other people to say great things about you instead (really!).
Your success depends on it.
And the world will be a better place for it too.
There is so much noise out there…
Everyone has tons of credentials, titles, and accolades…
How do you stand out above the rest?

💡When it’s the right time and place to show off your best or prove your authority by taking a backseat
💡How to bring forward your best attributes and sound brilliant instead of boastful
💡How to write Authority Statements that make you sound like a genius that everyone wants to be around
I’ve gone from feeling invisible and dorky to having top CEO’s, Hollywood agents, and high-powered executives in Hong Kong, London, and Dubai give me a seat in the boardroom next to them for me.
I’ve positioned countless “kind of” known DJs, artists and performers to become well-known industry names over the years.
And if you know what I know…
You’ll get there, AND I’m confident you’ll give back to those in need. You’ll enjoy the ride but since it hasn’t been easy, you’ll remember where you came from and fight to make it easier so the rest have to struggle less in the next round.

🔥HOW TO DEAL WITH WHINERS, TROLLS, AND HATERS🔥 Without feeling offended, defensive or hurt
Have you ever been hurt by someone who doesn’t see you how much you’re trying to help them?
Or so angry ‘cause they misunderstand you that you want to strangle them (in your mind, of course...lol😜)?
You know who they are.
They’re those whiners, complainers, haters, trolls, and critics that blame you for everything instead of taking responsibility for themselves.
They defame your character, your values, and it feels like their hurtful comments will ruin your reputation in cyberspace forever.
This might happen to you online in social media posts, over the phone with a prospect, or in person at a live event.
I HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU THOUGH:
None of this is permanent.
None of this is worth feeling bad about.
You have a higher level of consciousness, so I'm sharing with you ways to protect your peace and shine your light brighter than ever before.
You CAN get to a point when nasty people’s comments fly in one ear and out the other…
And you can learn how to use their words as 🔥fuel🔥 to ignite your success…

Celebrities have publicists to deal with this for them.
They write their social media rebuttals for them, or tell them when to ignore, delete, or fight back.
So who’s in your corner to help you through this?
Who’s on your side?
I helped celebrities handle their reputations and images in the public eye for many years. I
I am in your corner.

Please PM me if you want my help to:
➡️Kiss your corporate 9-5 job good-bye and become your own boss – FOREVER
➡️Clarify your messaging in a way that aligns with everything you sell into one signature system – your book, online course, speaking topics, workshops, live events, and TED talks – so you never have to reinvent “the wheel” again
➡️Know exactly what to say, how to dress, and how to get exposure in the media & publicity, not only because of what you do, but also because of who you are
➡️Know how to get paid 5-figure speaking fees, get 6-figure book deals, and parlay that into million dollar advances for the next book and New York Times Bestselling author titles
➡️Run your business on autopilot using the best online tools with the most qualified team to run it for you, so that you never have to worry about money again

📸HOW TO 10x YOUR INCOME FROM PUBLIC SPEAKING (Secrets that the Speakers Bureaus don’t tell you!)📸
One of the biggest mistakes people with a message to share with the world make is…
...not knowing how to monetize their speaking gigs so that their impact lasts for way more than the 30-60 minute speech.
It’s not just about making money, of course, but helping people internalize your message and offer more support before and after the speech so they get transformational results from it - by selling more books, getting people to join your trainings, building a connection with the audience so they want to follow you on social media and come back to watch your next speech.
Then it’s a win-win for all as it takes time to create a lasting change in people, and now they have multiple ways to feel inspired again because you went the extra mile to make your message stick.
When I worked full-time at a speakers bureau, this is what I helped 6-7 figure public speakers create.
-If you don’t know the right opportunities to look for to enhance your impact from multiple revenue streams... -If you don’t know what questions to ask to get the best slot in the speaker line-up -If you don’t know how to leverage the many opportunities to monetize the speaking gig that are around you ALL THE TIME…
How do you expect to stand out as a respected influencer amongst all the other noise out there?
You’ll basically rely on luck.
And we both know…
...Luck isn’t a very good strategy.
Instead of crossing your fingers and hoping to magically change the world with your message, watch this free training to find out:
-Why it’s about becoming known for a specific message, not just for public speaking
-How to stand out with the gatekeepers, the people that book you to speak, so they give you the #1 spot on the stage (Hint: They hold the keys!)
-Discover the top questions to ask that 10x your profits by selling more books, trainings, retreats, and that make you the no-brainer choice to get rebooked for more speeches in the future
-Learn why creating innovative think-outside-of-the-box revenue streams that build long lasting relationships before and after your speech is critical to your success

Hey Y'all! I feel moved to give props to Karin and her extraordinary work. I'm a member of her "Launch Your Purposeful Business" course and it is changing my life. Karin has done her homework, she's seen results and she is on a mission to help the conscious community get out of the "noble poverty funk" (TM, haha). She's a beautiful, loving, thoughtful, generous person and she genuinely has a desire and passion to see others succeed. She knows how to get you off your ass and help you claim that money you deserve doing what you most care about. Do a private, sign up for one of her courses, get on up in here, people. You don't have to slog through trying to figure things out on your own...she can really help. <3
What if you speak a truth that people don't want to listen to because they're afraid of that truth. I'm not talking about conspiracy theories, politics, or any of these distractions that we see in our modern time. I'm talking about real life what it means to be human and the truth about balance in the universe. I know all about this as I've experienced a very unique life. I don't have a degree on my wall and don't need one to prove anything to anyone. But I know based off my life experiences and where my intelligence rests, that what I have to say is truth and real.
Yes! I have been doing that work, healing and Building my Confidence/Self-esteem....
I have always tailored each talk to each group even when it is the same topic. I just want to confirm that is the right thing to do.
Still learning.... But other people have invited me, but I have not been trained formally.
I really didn't want to be one though, maybe why it's been taking me so long to do it.... I have a few messages, but what are the Core 3 in me? Which one is VITAL to the time & VIBRATION of the Day?
You’re speaking my Language!!! Thank you for this
Thank you Karin Roest! Chat soon! Bye P.F. Fam! 👑
Problems & Dreams?
Such an amazing job presenting here! Wonderful as always.
I have taught many classes on safety
What is my MAIN Message that I can use FIRST?
LORD GOD, don't let me GET LEFT BEHIND?
Hiya, sorry, I'm here.
That is what I have been doing. The general information has stayed the same.
Quick Question: So if I just had a Message, that would or could get me Booked? I have a book, 7 Things You Need To Know Before Saying, ' I Do'?
Thank you for your inspiring words your beautiful and amazing
Can you speak about the point where a speaker would start courting agents?
Between work, family, responsibilities, you’re still nowhere near reaching your financial goals. It’s not for a lack of trying; You’ve repeated your money affirmations, over, and over, and over before. You’ve invested in the “best” education that “promised” the big paycheck, but the job sucked so much it wasn’t worth staying. You’ve bought so many courses, used all the free materials online, but still haven’t been able to make a steady income doing what you love yet.
I can almost hear you now. “I just want to be able to go to the gym when I want, stop having to deal with other people’s B.S., and have enough free time to take my family around the world on a well-deserved vacation… or two.”
If you’re like most people I’ve worked with, there’s a good chance you’re holding the keys that unlock the door to access your very own PURPOSELY rich gold mine right now.
So what if you knew how to open that door and keep it open FOREVER so you feel energized, strong, fit, savvy, and confident every day?
What if monetary, spiritual, and emotional riches flowed into your life without having to try so hard and you never worried about getting underpaid or overworked again?
I’ll give you a hint: The answer to find your PURPOSELY rich gold mine lies in the negatives, positives, and the most extreme places that few people dare to go.
Please watch this and share your biggest takeaway in the comments; and let’s get you on a solid path to embrace your Infinite Power to be PURPOSELY rich.

Schindler's List has long been a favorite. I love the generosity and love of someone living through an incredibly difficult time.
Look for an attitude of gratitude
Even recently I had a conversation over dinner with my parents where they reacted instantly and emphatically that they did not want me to be like "those people," i.e. the rich. We never knew or interacted with any rich people so I had a hard time thinking of them as normal like me. I now realize that because of the perceived distance between us I wouldn't have given them the chance.
But again....I guess this is mindset work, which is what I said I needed. 💜

You saved the best for last. Lol
With my husbands record from New Mexico to Kansas that has put a lot of strain on certain things
I know I’m not the only person who is a *hot mess* yet can still change lives for the better…
So don’t leave me hanging...are ya’ with me?
In fact, this is the reality for everyone to some degree…
But not everyone shows it.
And for those who don’t, they’ll reach a ceiling on their impact and visibility sooner than later…
Because we all know that no one is perfect, so if you’re only showing the perfect side of you, we’re just not buying it.
So in this free Facebook live training, Monday, Dec. 17 at 2 pm EST, I’m excited share to with you 4 steps on how you can integrate your own kinda “crazy” into your own brand so that you stand out as a powerful leader who is skilled in being yourself publicly + adding value to your audience so they want to buy from you with integrity, and not come across as a know-it-all perfectionist that no one can relate to.
So, whether you’re:
Messy Awkward Silly Quirky Nerdy Embarrassing Depressing Vulnerable Unfocused Weird _____________ (Fill in the blank with your own definition of Crazy!)
I promise you there is a way to integrate those pesky habits, behaviors, and experiences that you thought would be your downfall so they become your biggest and most valued treasures. ... See MoreSee Less
HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS WHEN YOUR LIFE IS FALLING APART (AND STAY CALM, CASHFLOW POSITIVE, & STILL CHANGE LIVES FOR THE BETTER)
There is no busier time in the year than the holidays...
And that doesn't make the reality of life sometimes any easier:
- Not enough money to stop living paycheck to paycheck, let alone by your loved ones their desired Christmas gifts
- Or maybe you've got the cash but not the free time...you're working around the clock in a dead end 9-5 job or still not getting enough clients
- You don't feel like you can set proper boundaries or say "no" to the over demanding relatives, spouse, kids, boss, boyfriend/girlfriend
- Or you're not feeling too great; getting sick or suffering from a disease, frustrated that you don't have the energy to accomplish all that you want
- Maybe you just feel stuck...procrastinating or avoiding the stuff that needs to get done, knowing you're playing a smaller role than you're born to do.
If any of these apply to you...
I GET IT!
I've been there.
But I promise you...
You're here for a bigger purpose than what you're doing now and you know it too.
There are ways to deal with ALL of these curveballs from life threaten to hold you back from your greatness...
And your future depends on it.
In this video I share some practical tips on how to deal with all of this plus:
- Deal with family and friends that don't "get" you or support you
- How to be productive & organized when there seems like there isn't enough time in the day
- How to deal with serious illnesses and still run a profitable and purposeful business
- Why facing super tough situations - abusive relationships, a dried up bank account, depression, and the worst things you can ever think of don't need to stop you from making money and helping people along the way.

WHY YOU SHOULD CHARGE $100 FOR EACH BOOK YOU SELL (AND HOW TO FEEL CONFIDENT THAT IT'S WORTH IT)
Hope you had a GREAT Thanksgiving full of food, fun, and lots of fantastic moments!🍽️🍾🥇🌻🌾
YOU SEE, THE TRUTH IS...
If you have an important message to share with the world:
- Maybe it's based off your own story, sharing your struggles and lessons you've learned that have made you the powerful force for good that you are today
- Maybe you have a brilliant new paradigm, concept, or idea that will challenge the status quo
- Maybe this is meant to be your legacy that will live on to impact generations for many years to come...
Then you should DEFINITELY write a book.
BUT THERE'S A PROBLEM:
Statistics show that 80% of Americans says they want to write a book - that's 200 million, and only 1 million on average per year actually do it (that's .005% that actually do it)
Out of those 1 million people who actually finish writing their book, only 250 authors sell more than 100,000 copies, and the rest won't sell more than 2,000 copies in their LIFETIME.
If you do the math, that means over 99% of people aren't breaking even and equally as bad, their stories aren't reaching the readers who need their inspiration.
These stats break my heart.
If you've ever tried writing a book, you know much much time, money, and energy goes into writing it, editing it, publishing it, designing it, and promoting it.
You need to sell LOTS of copies to get an ROI.
So today, I want to share the NEW, MODERN business model so you can join the top 1% that not only make a huge return on their investment of time, money, and energy when writing their book...
BUT THEY ALSO START A MOVEMENT FOR THE MASSES, get the media and your biggest influencers chasing you, and you'll finally know you're reaching your fullest potential and going what you were born to do as an influential author and thought leader.
So yes, charging at least $100 PER BOOK is just the beginning.
There are ways that you can charge much more too...
So proud of Geoffrey Owen who was not ashamed to work in Trader Joe's to make ends meet in between acting jobs.

5 TIPS ON HOW TO RUN YOUR BUSINESS ON A SHOESTRING BUDGET
I like nice things as much as anyone else...
But I also love to save money when I can, especially if that gives me more freedom, free time, or resources to make more money and help more people in the future.

In fact, how much you spend should be YOUR choice, especially before you make your big breakthrough or if you're just starting out...

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT CLIENTS THAT REJECT YOU BECOME YOUR BIGGEST FANS
Please comment below to support Ziggy Holland for bravely being our guest in today's FB live!
And enlighten us with your biggest takeaways and share this video for extra bonus points to be selected as the winner for this week, WOOHOO!
We got cut off at the end, so let's recap how this can help you:
First, this is very common.
You meet people that need your help...you give them your all, you help them for free, you go out of your way to give life-changing advice...
Then, they reject you. It's your fault, they turn on your or blame you. They get defensive. They don't appreciate you...
And it's F.R.US.T.R.A.T.I.N.G.
This is common until learn you some basics & boundaries on how to protect yourself:
1. Not everyone will support you...nor should they. Everyone can be a prospect or advocate though, so as you exclude the wrong people which allows you to focus on finding the right people that appreciate you, send the rest away with love.
2. Ask yourself: Why does their rejection bother you? Where does that come from? Hint: They are a reflection of the unresolved issues you have with yourself...so deal with resolving the core issues from the past asap.
3. Ask yourself: Who do you want to be in these types of situations? Who do need to step up to embody in order to spread your message in a more effective way?
4. Set your standards first: You're here to be a catalyst for transformation. Stand in the eye of the storm with your light so you don't get sucked into their darkness and blindspots.
5. Don’t react to them, don't take anything personally, don’t make assumptions. We're all raised on different definitions of words, give them the benefit of the doubt until...
5. Ask questions about their intentions and what they meant to convey. Seek to understand before letting their ignorance take away your peace.
6. Ask for permission before sharing advice or your opinion. Don't try and fix them! Share your wisdom with those who will appreciate it.
We talked about how to start getting paid for bringing together a community of people, when and how to move from 1-1 mentoring to groups, and how to get on a path to make passive income so you can have more free time & cash.

Great video for inspirational Mondays - my take aways:
- speak with integrity
- don't take anything personally
- don't make any assumptions (ask questions)
- be a ball of energy so people are attracted to you, shine your light
- and always do your best and stand in my power

I used to do that on my fanpage. It might work for you. For me people only became angrier and still didn't pick up the message, and when you respond to them you become less valuable in their eyes. They are too used to celebrities who won't give them the time of day, and that's what they respect...
Great stuff!! 43:50 Major "ah ha" moment 🎁💯🙏😊
OMG yes, I fear success. It sounds stupid, and I never consciously thought about it or why. But I think it's because with success comes a lot of pressure, responsibility and obligations. I fear getting overwhelmed and unable to deal with it or live up to it. I'll have to rise to a new level that I'm not sure I can handle.
Yes to business class! (Of course my ears perk up on expensive stuff.)
Who are you WITHOUT your skills, passions, interests, and talents...
And why is it critical to peel back the curtain this far in order to truly make the difference that you are capable of making?
Sure, there are successful people who started out doing a lot of things before they got to this level of depth and inspire others through their own transformation. But they usually endure a lot of stress along the way or it took many, many years to get to the heart of what they do.
But what if you had a shortcut?
What if you could achieve the same influence, wealth, and impact without having to go through years of chasing after outward accolades, and spending endless hours in the office trying to figure it all out, missing out on opportunities, paychecks, and fulfillment in the meantime?
In this video, I’m sharing why it’s so important to get on a path to get paid for who you are now instead of what you do later.
It’s not only about the money, that is NOT the end goal, but it is an essential tool in the journey that allows you to reach your fullest potential and have enough free time without stress to achieve what you want, in the way you want.
Awww gosh ur raw emotion is inspiring- u pushed thru it - wow such commitment and vulnerability 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Hi Karin, sorry to hear you need surgery, I hope for a speedy recovery, also consider using a neck cover for X-rays as well whenever you visit the dentist to cover the thyroid just saying might help not irritate it 🙂 not a doc. just did a little research myself.

Thanks for staying authentic Karin Roest — I’ll DM you some inspiration.
I heard Robert Downey Jr.'s story recently and was really impressed by his perception of his reality.
Before watching your video I had just come across a saying, ‘Keep the end result in mind ‘
This is helping me to slowly work through my own fears that come up as I work towards my dreams .
Thank you 🙏

Yesss yay formula.
Karin you also mention that these people then use sales copy/funnels after building the relationships in person but I rarely find one that feels authentic.. especially the high end webinars— it’s always riddled with sales tactics (normally this will be $3k, for those of you on this webinar, it’s $999. You can see the value is $13k.. but we want to help as many people as possible, make this accessible.. gotta act now. We have support online to help you. We can even teach you how to take out a PayPal loan”...
I know you’ve seen these. Do you have an authentic example we can look to bychance?

It's Purposely Famous Celebrity news...not just to gossip but to help you learn lessons on how to make a bigger impact from the most visible people in the world (i.e. Hollywood) and avoid the pitfalls of being in the limelight.
I also gave a BIG shoutout to our brave PF friends who shared their person story last week...and quoted one of them at the end so we ended on an inspirational note!
I'd like to keep giving these kinds of updates every Friday (aka official Purposely Famous Fridays!), let me know your thoughts...
Did Justin Bieber just confirm that you are Purposely Famous?
Today was a busy day at the Purposely Famous headquarters...
But I had to still share this news before the day ends...
I can't believe I'm quoting Justin Bieber (no judgment, just had never been into his music much), but he did say something brilliant yesterday:
"Don't be fooled thinking famous people have a better life than yours, I can promise you it's not!"
Whether you like him or not, he is a top influencer in the world.
Sounds like he's had to find this out the hard way so it's good to know, wherever you are in your journey now!
It's not just about the money or fame, but it certainly makes life easier if you have a positive message to share.
So it's better to respect those that have made it THEN quickly move on to get back to your hustle and grind and make it happen for you and your dreams.Did Justin Bieber confirm that you are Purposely Famous?

Oprah does it. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen does it. Many other successful influencers, millionaires, and billionaires around the world allegedly do it every day, too. And if you haven’t plastered photos of it all over every social media platform or downloaded the latest meditation app, you almost feel left out!
Ok, maybe that’s just me. (DISCLAIMER: Guilty👏 As👏 Charged👏) Here’s my own “Meditation’s Greatest Hits” compilation, in which I spend 130 days meditating...in public. I’ll explain later the REAL reason behind why I did this because it was definitely NOT to show off or be fake.
That brings us to the bigger question: Do you really need to meditate EVERY DAY? Does it help you to have more success in your business? To make more money? To find love and to keep it? To feel less stressed in the face of deadlines, time constraints, and that feeling of being undervalued by the people around you? Take it from me, someone who sat in silence for an entire year (ok, 99% of the year, because it was really hard...)
THAT IS THE WRONG QUESTION TO ASK.
Here’s my honest perspective about daily meditation as someone who integrated back into the “real world” - aka not in a monastery. The truth is, I don’t meditate every day anymore. Nope. Not gonna do it. I go through phases. It helps, then it doesn’t, then it does. Sometimes I like it, then I don’t. I’ve seen firsthand that there are MANY paths to reaching the same end - one of complete fulfillment, peace of mind, and happiness. And they ALL work. Today, it might be meditation. Tomorrow, it might be exercise. You could invest in a coach, a therapist, or a healer - they all help tons, too. Or reading Letting Go by David Hawkins - FABULOUS book.
It’s much better to focus on knowing WHEN you’re stuck in negative thoughts - doubt, self-sabotage, shame, guilt, and anger to name a few, then taking immediate action to release them. Are you aware of when you’re down AND taking action to do something about it, without hesitation? And by “action” that could mean doing absolutely nothing…aka MEDITATION. The worst thing you can do is just sit there, convinced that binge-watching Netflix or going on a chocolate cake bender is the solution. No judgment, I’ve done BOTH these things before (I told you that I’d be honest)!
But, I don’t do them anymore. I know my life purpose now and meditation played an ENORMOUS role in helping me find it. So, as a super-fan of meditation for the greater good, let me share with you the absolute #1 reason why you SHOULD meditate:
It’s an intense inner boot camp. You’re probably not spending most of your day sitting with your eyes closed. BUT, never forget that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. If you can learn how to control and compartmentalize your inner world, the outer world will ALWAYS work in your favor. A.L.W.A.Y.S. Because it’s not about things getting easier. NEWSFLASH: Life never gets easier. There will always be more things to do, more bills to pay, more distractions that stress you out or that eat up your precious time. But, once you learn how to HANDLE it all with ease and grace, EVERYTHING will fall into place because YOU DID THE INNER WORK first.
When you sit with your eyes closed in meditation and make a commitment to stop reacting to your thoughts or move impulsively, it becomes a training ground for learning how to WAIT AND THINK BEFORE YOU ACT. If you can do this in meditation, you’ll be able to react less to your negative thoughts and impulsive motives in daily life, too. You’ll be able to take back control and power over your life on your own terms instead of being dragged along by the scripts the wrong people or society wrote for you.
And let’s get real. If you have reoccurring setbacks and emotional roadblocks that keep coming up, MEDITATE. DAILY. UNTIL THEY ARE GONE. Then you can stop (if you want). There is a time and a place to meditate daily, and that calls for drastic measures, so go for it! The discipline will do you wonders. You’ll stop spinning in circles. But, you’ve got to slow your roll on the inside first. Make sense?
Thanks so much for reading, it’s fun sharing this kind of stuff with you 🙂I've learned so much about myself, the world, other people, and even animals (as you'll see in the video!) from pushing out of my comfort zone to sit for a m... ... See MoreSee Less
I am the biggest fan of having a great brand … but not when it works against you.
I love the brands that have succinct copy that hits you in your heart and soul. So much that you can’t help but love buying from them.
Their design, logos, colors and images make you feel safe, empowered, and warm.
But it’s also a myth that you need all of those things perfectly done and packaged before you can make a same kind of impact that a great brand can make.
Because the bottom line is that people want their problems solved, and for you to see who they are on a deeper level than the norm.
And your ability to do this requires nothing more than you.
So, if you:
Don’t have the time, money or resources to create the fancy bells and whistles for brand …
If you prefer to be more no-frills, and more “let’s just go out and help people NOW” …
If you like being a minimalist, behind the scenes, or discreet …
If you’re focused on sustainability and money maintaining, long-term impact and profit …
Then I suggest forgetting about bending over backwards to create the perfect brand for the short-term. Start focusing on SERVING and HELPING people instead.
Why? Because the perfect brand is you.
It’s your wisdom, skills, purpose, and contribution to the planet. And you can start by sharing these things with people in a simple conversation. Ask them…
What are you problems, struggles, and challenges? What are your dreams, hopes, and aspirations? Why do you not have everything you want yet?
It’s much better to connect deeply with 1 person than with 100 who “like” your Facebook post for a nano-second.
I see way too many people out there trying to look as fancy as the already established Jack Canfields, Marie Forleos, Lewis Howes, and Tony Robbins’ of the world.
Don’t get me wrong – these people have fantastic branding. But they did not when they first started out.
Like everyone else, it took them years to make the profit and loyal following. Long before they could put all the fancy colors and packaging together.
Here’s my advice to entrepreneurs who are striving to develop the perfect branding.
Forget creating fancy memes that don’t get a lot of likes or comments. Share in-depth valuable content that really grabs people’s attention instead.
Forget making fancy videos with edited intros, outros, and subtitles and just pull out your phone and record it on there. Upload it directly to social media.
Forget comparing yourself to other people who already spent years behind the scenes building their following from scratch. AKA every role model you see in the spotlight. Focus on listening and genuinely helping people instead.
I know tons of people who make a lot of money, they don’t have a website, they don’t post on social media, but they know EVERY influencer behind the scenes.
But since they focus on building deeper, meaningful relationships, they don’t even have to look for clients. Word gets around that they actually care about people, and that sends out tiny dopamine hits to the right people who need it.
Could they make a bigger impact if they did have a website and post on social media more?
In the end, it’s your choice...but at least you have a choice if your foundation is built on solid relationships first.
Even for me, I’ll admit that my own branding is not perfect. Sometimes I use fonts and letterhead that don’t match. And not every webpage has a sustained design.
But I’ve still been able to run a profitable business. By helping ordinary people create a customized path to make an extraordinary impact. I did this without any social media following. I did not invest in paid marketing for four years.
Don’t get caught up in the rat race, or else you’ll always be left behind in crumbs.
Be confident that you are capable of helping people now. Get the right guidance from someone else who can see who you are and give you the nudge to get out there right now. Not later.
And I’m curious...are you ready to go out and help people as you are, just being you, right now? Or do you feel like you need more clarity or confidence before doing so? ... See MoreSee Less
When I refer to reaching your “big BREAKTHROUGH point” in your business, I’m referring to a time in the future when you’re so well-known as an authority that amazing opportunities and influencers come to you (no more chasing, yeah!).
However, I get really frustrated when I hear people say, “all you need to do is THIS one thing for your business and you’ll start making millions, reaching millions, and feel completely happy with yourself!’ The truth is, there is NO such shortcut to building a solid business. Business and success come in different phases and stages.
And you’ll have to deal with many moving parts...
I’m not saying you have to MASTER all of them before you can be successful.
But you WILL have to develop your skills and mindset in multiple areas if you’re serious about making an impact and earning big profits to match.
That way, you’ll be ready for eve more greatness that comes AFTER reaching your big breakthrough point and be able to handle it properly.
Now instead of giving you some magic solution (unlike so many others that promise that falsely!)...
Let me share with you 5 steps you need to focus on that will REALISTICALLY help you get further in your business and prepare you for your big break.
Building a strong foundation is key, so first of all:
1. You need to know who you are and who you serve YOU have to decide what you want to be KNOWN for, or else other people (aka the wrong ones) will decide it for you.
And that sucks.
Once you are crystal clear on who you are and how YOU want to be serving the world, everything you do will align with ease and you’re confidence will skyrocket.
This kind of clarity takes effort, and with the right guidance it’s something that you can establish quickly with a proven, tangible system to follow, such as in the Purposely Famous Academy.
2. Help a small number of people on a DEEP level first
Forget about helping the masses for now...that comes later, so more about that in a moment), or making fun memes or videos that only our mom and dog reads, lol.
Share your wisdom and gifts with people that appreciate you and see that you can help them...
AKA Your own personal Tribe.
Talk to them.
Ask them questions.
Then make your own conclusion about what THEY need and how YOU can help them solve their problems in the best way you possibly can.
3. Master the money game
Maybe you have some, maybe you don’t.
Maybe you inherited some, or worked really hard for it.
Maybe you still need some time to figure it out how to get some.
The truth is, if you want to help a lot of people, you’ll have to reinvest in yourself and your business in order to have resources needed to do what you love to do....
And you’ll need to be able to afford it.
The best strategy here is to master the money game...so you can “play” with the “big boys,” the people who have already made their millions and influence.
So focus on turning your gifts and wisdom into passive income streams, such as into books, courses, workshops, and products.
Your wisdom is the strongest weapon you have to become an equal to those who are more influential than you are.
Passive income allows you to spread it to an unlimited number of people, make an unlimited amount of money, and finally have the free time to stay innovative and stress-free.
4. Replicate and duplicate your impact to the Masses
Moving on from your small Tribe you can upgrade to replicate your success and impact with the Masses!
This is a logical and tangible process to build a movement to start reaching hundreds or even thousands or millions of people.
The Masses wants transformation and a new perspective on life, and only rarely to buy something.
Share the stuff that counts - your thoughts, ideas, and challenge the status quo - because this is where Thought Leadership starts and counts the most, and watch the people come to you in droves for all the right reasons.
5. Bulletproof your Mindset with your Core Values
You might think that being more productive, managing your time and becoming more organized are tactical things.
Perhaps on the outside, but if you’re not mastering the concepts of these things INSIDE your mind, you’ll never reach your goals.
This FEELING of overwhelm while you have a business to run, a family to take care of…
All boils down at the core to mastering your mindset FIRST.
You need to be able to stand in the eye of the storm, while staying calm, cool and collected...
And learn how to manage all of it with grace and ease. ------------ These 5 steps are things that you can practice to become better in, because it’s never just “one thing.”
And at the end of the day, it’s about so much more than mastering a few key steps.
This is about buckling down to do what it takes to live a better life…
To create better opportunities for yourself and your loved ones…
And settling for MORE freedom that you deserve along the way.
So...which step are you the most masterful at or which do you struggle with the most? For me, it used to be my mindset...the glass was half empty but not it's always half full 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
I remember the time I got my first coaching client...by accident. I was on the phone with a call center, trying to get my computer fixed. The technician helping me asked what I did for a living. I proudly said, “I help people reach their dreams…” Then let my voice trail off.
If you know anything about pitches, that’s the most cliche pitch I’ve ever heard of, even ‘til this day, lol. Although it’s what I wanted to do in my heart...it’s vague and super “woo-woohey.”
And I had two weeks left to finish my coaching certification program, so wasn’t even an official coach yet. I didn’t know how to present what I did yet or who my “Tribe” was, I was a rookie in the transformational world. But I tried. That was enough.
The girl on the phone sighed and the floodgates opened. “I hate my job,” she said. I sighed in empathy for her. I told her about the time I got fired from my “supposed” dream jobs (yes, twice in fact...I share about it here). AKA - Yep, it sucks to do work that you don’t love, right?
So I asked her, “What is your dream job if you could do anything you want?” She said, “I want to be a probation officer for felons.” I couldn’t believe the words that came out of my mouth next, but I said, “I can help you do that.”
Did I mention that this girl was a super sweet, 5 feet tall petite, I-don’t-have-an-ounce-of- bad-in-me-but-please-help-me-supervise-the-worst-criminals-in-our-country type of girl? Then, she said, “I have to pass an advanced math class to get the job. By the way, I failed math back when I was in school.” Once again, I opened my big mouth. “I can help you pass that too.”
Did I mention that I’ve sucked at math my entire life...and still do? (I wish the Asian stereotype of being good at math applied to me, but it doesn’t!) By the end of the phone call, I had my first client. The next day, she quit her job. She paid me. I was sweating bullets.
Fast forward three months later: She passed the math test. She got the job. My confidence was boosted. I was unstoppable. And I still suck a math.
Fast forward 5 years later:
Today I’m VERY clear on who my Tribe is: I help ordinary people create a customized path so that can reach their extraordinary dreams. In my career as a talent agent for high profile public figures and celebrities, I was a pro at helping other people find their Tribe.
But when it came to finding my own Tribe based on my purpose and essence, I had blind spots. I wish I would have had a mentor to help me figure this out faster.
If you had a mentor helping you find yours too, you’ll finally be able to live your passion and dreams faster too. That’s why I’m going to share 3 tips that will help you find your Tribe and ease your mind that they are still out there waiting for you (don’t give up hope yet!).
But first, as you can see, you don’t need to know who your exact Tribe is when you’re just starting out in business.... Nor to get paid for someone that needs your help.
Since you have so many different skills, talents, passions, and interests, you will always be able to help more than one group of people. That is a good thing.
But it can be confusing, especially pinpointing that group of people who love you and love paying you to change their life for the better.
Staying confused is NOT an option for you though. It’ll keep you staying small forever. You’re better than that. You know you are...and I do too.
So here are the 3 tips: 1. Be a problem solver...for anything: Just like I figured out that I can help someone with problems that don’t even relate to me, you can do the same. When you’re not clear on your perfect avatar yet, use your intelligence, intuition, and critical thinking skills to solve anyone’s problems that come your way. Charge them for it and they’ll be more committed to get results.
2. Brainstorm: Take out a piece of paper and write out EVERY type of group you’d like to help. Don’t leave anyone out. Add corporations, governments, schools, non-profits, investors, and sponsors...because no matter what final Tribe you focus on in the future, you’ll eventually connect to these if your strategic to make a big impact. Feel good knowing that you have abilities to help so many different people. One day, with the right guidance to put it all in order, you’ll be able to help them all.
3. Pick one to focus on first: Who do you enjoy working with the most AND who can pay you your highest rates? It’s easier to get a small number of clients who pay you premium rates. Save the masses - a large number of people who pay small fees - for later.
In a world with 7 billion people in it, accept the fact that the RIGHT people are thirsty for your help.
Yes, it’s a FACT.Confusion is just an excuse.
If you are truly committed to serve the world at the higher level, then GET HELP to clarify this important element in your business NOW.
And the truth is, it’s NOT cringe worthy to help people reach their dreams. That’s what I do...and you do to.
But if you want to make a bigger impact...getting help to clarify who you serve will accelerate your progress 10x faster than trying to figure this out on your own.
There are so many moving parts to run a profitable and purposeful business. This is one of the first steps that you need to take to build your confidence and to make you feel good about making money while helping people reach their dreams.
So...who's your Tribe and what gets you fired up to help them? Or if you can't find them or connect with them...let me know and I'll help you nail this! ... See MoreSee Less
Someone who has a vested interest in your success. Someone who believes in you. Someone who sees your potential.
Call them a coach. A guru. Or a mentor. It’s not the name that matters. It’s the effect.
For me, it was my first boss after college. A big hot shot Hollywood producer who gave a small town Idaho girl like me a chance.
When I told him I didn’t know how to organize a press conference, he said, “Yes, you do.”
When I told him I didn’t know how to negotiate a multi-million dollar contract, he said, “Yes, you can.”
When I didn’t feel good enough to talk to a fancy-schmancy celebrity (In the beginning, I never felt like was good enough!), he said, “Yes, you are.”
He’d give me more guidance and encouragement each time.
My responsibilities in my job increased. The stakes got higher.
Every time I said, “I can’t,” he’d say, “Yes, you can.”
I didn’t believe in myself back then...but he did.
If it weren’t for him, I would not have been able to travel the world, work and hang out with top influencers, and start my own talent agency five years after working with him.
I wouldn’t be emailing you from a place of confidence and authority to tell you that YOU can do whatever you want too.
Until you get to the point that you FULLY believe in yourself, you need other people who believe in you and really see who you are.
Every successful person on the planet always says the same thing, from Aristotle, to Presidents of countries, to Bill Gates and Oprah: That they had someone in their life who really saw who they were and told them, “Yes, you can.”
And I’d like to be that person for you.
You see, since I am a professionally trained celebrity talent scout...my greatest gift is to see your potential.
It’s my proudest attribute.
I learned the hard way though, that it isn’t about just seeing how to monetize your gifts in the business world.
After spending the year in silence at the monastery, I realized you need someone to see you in relation to your deeper purpose in life too.
So with me, you get the best of both worlds: My professional opinion based off knowing the trajectories of hundreds of successful influencers and what you need to do to rise to that level + how to live a purposeful life at the same time.
In case you’re wondering: What do I look for when I see new talent or as business coach in the entrepreneurial world? Here are a few things:
Purpose: As the creator of Purposely Famous, no surprise, right! In my world, the foundation of everything you do should be something meaningful, aka executed with purpose.
An “I’ll never give up attitude:” I’ve got to know that you’ll never give up trying to reach your goals and that you’ll never settle for less.
Competency: I don’t need you to know it all, nor be the best at it. Ironically, being adequate now is enough if you are open to learning, growing, and being coachable as you go.
Belief in the impossible: Reaching your fullest potential, making millions of dollars, and impacting millions of people are not logical nor common achievements. But it’s possible. You must believe in yourself or trust my belief in you to achieve the impossible in the meantime.
As a foundation, that’s a start.
It’s not rocket science, right?
It’s not about being the most talented, smartest, or the most beautiful in the room.
The foundation of your success is that simple.
Trust me, I know because we all have blind spots.
So tell me this:
How long have you been undervaluing yourself...putting up with too much B.S. from your boss, co-workers, or the ungrateful clients? How much money have you missed out on because you’re underpaid and overworked? What opportunities have you walked away from because you “weren’t ready?”
When you have self worth and someone who believes in you to move past these obstacles (If you could overcome then on your own, you would have already right?), you can literally move mountains.
It is amazing to know someone’s got your back as you start reaching your goals one by one...from becoming your own boss to traveling around the world to reaching your financial goals to hanging out with influencers as if you’re one of them.
I’ve achieved these things, and it’s awesome.
This makes all the difference between success and failure.
If Mother Teresa had been on the hit TV show called Shark Tank…
I bet she would have been a “shark.”
And negotiated to get a gazillion dollars in funding to build schools and orphanages around the world.
Or if it had been Gandhi marching for world peace, Bill Gates fighting to eliminate malaria, Malala speaking out for education…
Anyone with a good purpose would fight for their causes relentlessly as if vying for the best spots on QVC.
I’m not diminishing the value of good work by comparing it to the latest online shopping gadget, but there is a valuable lesson about money to learn here.
THE BIGGER QUESTION IS: DO YOU NEED TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY TO IMPACT A LOT OF PEOPLE?
I get asked this all the time. And to be honest, it’s a fair question.
So first, let’s put this into perspective:
It costs a lot of money to impact a lot of people...whether it goes into your bank account or not.
A good way of thinking about this is that there will always be an exchange of money and you are the facilitator of it.
You can keep the cash or donate it.
The choice is yours.
If you’re like me, you’d help people for free. You do it because it feels good and you really have a good heart to help those in need.
But in today’s modern world…
And as much as I support completely altruistic endeavors…
Most people cannot afford to live off the land and give all of their money to other people.
Just being honest.
The struggle is real…
Bills need to be paid. Mortgage payments don’t grow on trees. College tuition is not getting cheaper.
So unless you’re a priest (or most religious leaders where the institution pays your bills), a trust fund baby, or the (VERY SMALL) minority who naturally earns a ton of money or gets donations easily…
And acknowledging that in today’s world, people tend to value what they pay for (um, I think you’d take much better care of a Ferrari versus an old beat up Volkswagen)...
Then give yourself permission to earn enough money to reach all of your dreams and still give back to society. Do both.
THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE MONEY.
The solution is to focus on building your authority instead.
Let’s recognize the fact that 1% of the population has 99% of the entire world’s wealth, so every time you say “I don’t care about money!” or “I’m gonna do this for free!...”
...You just helped that wealthy 1% of the population put more money into their pockets instead of having that go into yours or those who really need it.
This is why I always encourage my clients to start out by charging premium prices for their services.
If one coach can get paid $10,000 per client, why can’t you?
Aren’t you as good as they are?
Isn’t your wisdom just as valuable as theirs?
I love our camaraderie in the Purposely Famous Academy...recently in one of our group calls, one client shared his vast experience in helping clients write their books.
He has raving reviews. He’s an expert. We all saw it.
He was only charging clients $200 for his services.
Everyone on the call piped in as they saw how much he’s been undervaluing himself and told him, “You need to charge $25,000 per client from now on!”
So he is.
And guess what: Those high-paying clients will be way more committed and get better results. Because no one wants to throw away $25,000.
ON THE FLIP SIDE, IF YOU’RE COMMITTED TO PHILANTHROPIC CAUSES:
First, I applaud you.
We live in an expensive world and it’s noble to dedicate your time to spread goodwill on the planet.
But you’re still going to need to understand what it takes to get donations from the business world and hard-working people in the office, so your task to get money is not very different.
But you cannot escape the money game.
And some of the highest paid Thought Leaders that I’ve worked with have been philanthropists, educators, and visionaries.
They got paid WAY more than the executives and tech experts.
So you don’t have to settle for less or a lower paycheck, even in philanthropy.
WHETHER YOU’RE EARNING MONEY FOR YOURSELF OR IN PHILANTHROPY:
My point is to build your authority and name as a leader and the money will come to you either way. If you missed how to build your authority by borrowing it from other people, click here.
Altruistic leaders don’t join the spotlight for themselves. But they didn’t refuse it either.
It’s not about your ego (you should always be modest), but owning the value you bring to the world builds trust and credibility with those who don’t know you.
So whatever you decide...YES, it takes a lot of money to impact a lot of people. It always will.
Show your authority and learn the ins and outs about what it takes to play with the “big boys” in the money world and the whole world will be a better place for it.
A Hero’s Journey is not only the formula for great Hollywood movies. It’s something that each of us possesses, and it’s often the KEY to establishing and determining your authority as a thought leader.
Think every major Hollywood movie where the main character struggles and ends up being the hero in the end: Luke Skywalker. Wonder Woman. Harry Potter. Frodo Bagans.
These are fictional characters but YOU have also been through many trials in your life and succeeded. You TOO are a hero.
Here is a great article that shows you how to draft your own hero’s story based on the 12 stages of Joseph Campbell’s theory.
But since everyone has a great hero’s story, how do you make yours stand out and grab attention so people think, “I want to know more about you! I admire you! I want to buy from you! I’m going to click on every social media post you make, yes...you’re that awesome!”
I have some simple answer for this:
YOU NEED TO BE MORE DRAMATIC.
Yep...MORE DRAMA PLEASE!
Forget when your mom, friends, or other coaches tell you to tone it down.
I’m telling you to TONE IT UP.
I’ll use myself as an example to show how this works: I could tell everyone that I was born in South Korea, then I moved to Idaho and everything turned out happily ever after, and all this stuff in the middle happened.
But here’s what I often say: I was born in South Korea, I was dropped off at an orphanage the day after I was born and my birth family told everybody that I died.
That took five seconds to write, and it’s an attention grabber. And it’s true. Always be truthful.
But I CHOSE to highlight one point of my story so people want to know more.
See how that works?
What DRAMATIC points in your hero’s journey can you emphasize that make you stand out too?
Just like a Hollywood movie, if you’re not punchy and strategic enough to keep people’s attention, you’re going to get lost in the crowd.
So EMPHASIZE YOUR DRAMA.
Make yours LOUDER.
Use it as an “in” to prove your authority and resilience.
Have fun with it. Be proud of where you come from, your faults, mistakes, and drama...that is root of your gold 🙂
DON'T base decisions on your strengths, do this instead...
We’re always taught to identify our strengths, and to hone them. I know I’ve been told hundreds of times to focus on what I am good at, and ignore the rest.
And when you go to launch your own businesses, you’re often told the same thing. In fact, you’re even taught to to “outsource” your weakest points to others.
But this is NOT correct and you’ll keep you falling short from reaching your goals for a LONG TIME if you do this.
On a surface level, this makes a lot of sense. It’s the “safe route,” shall we say. By focusing on what we know that we are good at, it might seem like you’re lowering the risk of failure.
But when you only focus on your strengths, you’re actually limiting yourself. You’ll end up always being the same.
Case in point that proves this: I remember the exact moment that I decided to stop expressing myself. To suppress my voice. To never speak out again.
It was the 3rd grade.
The teacher called on me to answer a question.
She couldn’t hear me.
All of my classmates stared at me.
My face turned red.
I yelled out the answer again.
The teacher still couldn’t hear me.
There were more stares...50 eyeballs in the room all pointed at me.
I wanted to sink into my chair.
“Why couldn’t they hear me?” I thought. I spoke out in my loudest voice.
“I guess my voice isn’t loud enough. Not good enough. Not valuable enough.”
So I stopped speaking out.
I stopped standing out.
I stopped answering questions.
I made a decision that my strength was not to speak out...ever again.
It worked...but that also meant I never developed my ability to speak out and be heard...and to be valued.
But this is not a pity party.
The fact that I’m writing to you and have made a special video about this for you about this is a REALLY big deal. It’s never too late to develop your hidden strengths.
Because I know you have great wisdom to share with the world too.
Maybe for you, it’s something else.
What have you suppressed because a teacher, classmate, parent, sibling, TV show, movie or advertisement gave you the impression that you can’t do?
Perhaps your soul was calling out for something vastly different...but you didn’t know how to stand up for your gut at the time. It’s ok. It’s not too late.
What if the whole point of life is to not just wake up and “magically” have a strength but instead you need trials, errors, rejections, and mistakes to push you beyond your comfort zone to fully develop your most valuable INNER magic?
Another case in points: I’ve taken a ton of personality tests over the years, and hated the results.
Sure, it’s great to be “accountable” and “responsible” as the results told me I was...but that was because I WAS PLAYING IT WAY TOO SAFE.
But here’s something that they typically don’t take into consideration:
Certain events and things shape our character and decisions but are not always reflective of who you are in terms of your essence, or our purpose.
So how about this instead:
Choose WHO YOU WANT TO BECOME...and spend your time, energy, and focus on BECOMING THAT PERSON.
Are you a visionary? Thought Leader? Creator? Innovator? Motivator? Adventurous?
Base your life around who you want to be and you can never go wrong.
In fact, that is exactly how to make the RIGHT opportunities and people come to you...because others secretly aspire to be those same bold things too.
I want you to TAKE BACK YOUR POWER AND make that decision for yourself.
I want YOU to find that freedom as well.

Over the years, it’s become very clear to me that too many Thought Leaders (even if they don’t consider themselves that YET) are giving away their advice for free.
A lot of Thought Leaders are empathetic and compassionate people who really have a good head on their shoulders.
And this is not something that goes unnoticed by others!
Now, I’m not talking about being a shoulder for your best friend to lean on, or giving advice to someone close to you, or in your family.
I’m talking about the people you are already working with, possibly even your own boss, and acquaintances you may have.
The issue is that when a Thought Leader spends his or her time giving advice to others for free, it really cuts down on the time that they could be working to consciously build their own business. It can leave them drained.
I know, because it’s happened to me.
But what if you knew that you could get paid what your transformational advice is actually worth? If someone can really benefit from your advice and take it into practice, making massive strides in their life because of what YOU told them to do, or what you pointed out to them - isn’t that worth a paycheck for you?
It definitely is!
And there are thousands of people - maybe even millions - out there who make a living doing just that.
If your ideas are good enough for people to seek them out, then they’re good enough to get you paid. Whether that’s hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars: That’s up to you.
I know how frustrating it can be. I was giving away advice for free for years. I was making everyone around me into millionaires while I was struggling to pay my bills.
I was going in and helping people negotiate their deals and I was doing it for the passion of it. Because I enjoyed working for these people.
Meanwhile they were making literally millions of dollars from contracts that I helped them nail, but I couldn’t even fly home to see my family if someone got sick. I realized that something needed to change.
Pretty much, people aren’t really used to getting paid for their wisdom, but think about it. There are certain people out there for whom you can change their lives with your advice.
I’m sure you know people right now whom you could greatly benefit with your life experience and vision. But if you give them the goods for free every time, your wisdom and foresight almost become a burden because it’s your valuable time, and you’re giving them very specific advice.
You’ll eventually start to feel you want to get paid, but you don’t know how to make it happen. The problem is that if you don’t learn how to get paid for this, you’re going to be broke, while you see your friends, colleagues, acquaintances - all of the people you’ve been advising behind the scenes - are getting paid more and more. They are getting results. And you aren’t.
Let’s be clear on one thing: You are worth getting paid for transforming someone's life for the better. You just have to learn how to ask for it properly.
Years ago, I worked at a nightclub in South Korea. But it wasn’t just any nightclub. In fact it was one of the very first clubs in Korea that was getting international DJs.
The venue’s sound system alone cost $1 million. The crazy thing was, although I was doing most of the booking and was instrumental in the new found fame of this venue and its managers, I hadn’t seen a dime.
Finally, after months of seeing the big whigs of the bar get paid (I couldn’t help but notice they were driving new cars, wearing fancy clothes and using new technology), I went in and demanded my pay.
But not only did I demand my own pay, I demanded the pay of all my other coworkers who were still broke. This situation taught me something: How to stand up for myself.
I also learned to value my effort and know-how, and what I can offer to a business. Now I know how to take this direct attitude and make it work for Thought Leaders, coaches and visionaries.
The solution to this dilemma is what I call the “cup of coffee rule.” It’s really simple.
Give enough free advice to someone as long as it takes to drink one cup of coffee with them. At the end of your meeting, tell them you have a program or service that helps people like them.
Tell them, “Hey, if you want more, then let’s go into the next phase of the program.” Offer up your program, and the price for it. Don’t hesitate.
Truly, there’s just not a lot of people that realize the value of what they are giving away for free. It’s so worth getting paid for it.
Think about it, most people don’t hesitate to pay for a course that would enhance their career prospects. Nor do they hesitate to pay a therapist what he or she asks per hour, because they know that with enough dedication to the process, they will see results.
But something tells me that your advice has an even easier and quicker monetary and mental turnaround. I know this because I know it comes from the highest place.
Anything that involves you helping someone reach their life goals is worth getting paid for. Don’t forget that.

Ok, this gave me an ah-ha! Moment.
For some reason the "where do I begin" question i had started mapping itself out in my mind when you got to the end game in the "cup of coffee" strategy.
The endgame sparked internal questions, that as i began to ask them, answers i didn't expect to actually be answers began jumping forward, and in the end I had a confidence in my "not knowing", whereas before I was daunted by that.
I realized that my not knowing is part of what will make me stand out as a more personalized coach.
I won't "know" EVER, if i don't find out where my clients are currently.

I definitely want to be a Visionary artist. 🙂 thank you for your work it’s super inspirational!
2,3,5,6,7,8,9,12😏🙄 omgeeee but you already know my story😎😚
Oh I am a combination, I identify with a couple of these.
I would say I am a #2, 5, and 6. It's a long story but I want to share one delicious story, so lets go with #2 and #5.
I went to a very expensive art school in downtown Chicago, unfortunately this school employed some shady tactics such as charging outrageous money saying things like "pay this or you can't continue" even though the student, like me, was already paid up. Meanwhile I was already extremely poor, like so poor I spent most of my childhood in a house that had water that leaked from the roof, a driveway made of gravel rocks, and we couldn't even afford a land line phone. I was so poor in college that I barely could feed myself. One day I ran into the lady who recruited me at the school and she said she was so shocked how far I came. She said she never expected me to make it in the big city even a week that I was so country and my parents seemed so naive.
I was so angry that I said "...you know what. To hell with these guys. Someday I am going to have my own animation company. I want it to be in a high rise building across the street from the school so someday I can look down at the school and say 'I beat you, I win.'"
So you know what I did? I'm in Portland but I was looking where to put a virtual office so my business could have an official business address. Virtual offices are way cheaper than having an actual receptionist and office and you can literally have it anywhere in the world. So--- I picked a virtual office literally across the street from my old college. When I visit Chicago I literally get to look down at my old college and say "I win." I haven't even made a single dollar yet and already I feel like I'm winning.
