5 Ways to Get More Done & More From Meetings

5 Ways to Get More Done & More From MeetingsI was very impressed on Saturday morning at Joel Marion’s Transformation Domination seminar.

A young and enthusiastic trainer from Belgium named Glenn, who had previously contacted me through Facebook, tracked me down, introduced himself and proceeded to ask me 12 questions – all of which he had written down in a small journal he was carrying with him.

Talk about coming PREPARED.

And that was impressive.

He was making the most of his opportunity. Most people don’t do any preparation at all, but Glenn did, and I bet he got the most out of the weekend.

In addition to writing down specific questions you want to ask to specific experts, here are 4 other ways to be prepared…

1) Plan out your day

If your workday ends at 5pm, spend from 4:50-5:00pm planning out the next day. Write down what you are going to be doing at 8, 9, 10, 11, etc…in 15-30 minute intervals.

Doing this for a few weeks will make you exponentially more productive.

2) Have your daily to do list prioritized

Put the most important tasks at the top of the list and don’t move on to the next task until you’ve crossed the most important task off
of your list.

3) Be prepared when you go to meetings or when you make a phone call so that you get right to the point and don’t waste 5-10 minutes in idle chit-chat.

Say Hi, find out how the person is, and then get right to business.

Believe me, the person on the other end will appreciate it just as much because they are busy too.

4) When you go to a seminar, make a list of people to meet.

Let’s go back and look at what Glenn did…not only did he have a list of questions to ask a few experts, but he also had a list of all the people he wanted to meet.

He knew what info he wanted to get and he didn’t rest until he met everyone and asked all of his questions – after all, he tracked me down 3 times to ask follow up questions as well.


It’s one thing to go to a seminar or meeting, but it’s a skill to get all of the information you need from the experts you want to talk to.

So again, hats off to Glenn, and I hope that you got a few ideas on how to make meetings/seminars more productive as well as how to get more done everyday.TT Bootcamp Workouts

How to Get More Bootcamp Clients

Been getting a lot of emails from bootcamp trainers recently who are loving
the TT Bootcamps workouts but still want more clients to take their
bootcamps to the next level…

So I asked bootcamp marketing guru Chris McCombs for ideas, and here’s what
he gave me:

1) Talk to EVERYONE

Wherever you go in your local area, just start talking to people.

Don’t come across as salesy or pushy, but just start the conversation going
and SOMEHOW turn it around to your boot camps… like start telling a funny
story of something that happened at your boot camp last night… whatever it
is, just turn the conversation towards your boot camps, and it they’re
interested they’ll ask more it.





That’s easy and natural.

2) Set Up Simple Facebook Ads

Facebook ads are a GREAT way to get clients.. just make sure to target your
ads as deep as possible.

So if you serve 7 different cites, create a separate targeted ad for each
one and the put the name of the city in each ad… and target your
demographics as deep as possible as well…

If your biggest audience is 25- 45 single females, then that’s who you
should target in your ads.

Again, simple and natural.

Thanks Chris.
