More Than Just Coffee


Monday I met Jon for coffee, I hadn’t seen him since he put together Direct TC, internet phone and my cell phone contract.  I kind of had a feeling he had something he wanted something, so I decided to see what transpired.  He is now doing a program that give free seminars on all kinds of financial ways to keep more of your own money.  He said he would let me come and show my promotional marketing things and 2 -3 minutes to talk about what I do as well as my logo on the screen.  Once again I found myself automatically thinking “Oh no, I can’t do that in such a short time”.  But I caught myself and thought “Why not?”.  I am working on coming from a place of yes, changing my whole childhood training.  So I said I would.  it was Saturday afternoon, not a time Eddie wants me somewhere else, but he encouraged me and I decided to do it.


That definitely had my mind thinking faster than usual.  I decided I would order chocolate bars from my supplier here in Washington.  I called and they took care of it and I had them here by Friday.  I just put a small label on the back – Presto, a self promo.  I also decided to give it all to the Universe – what to say, what to do, what to take, how to set up the table – and ask for the words, attitude, physical actions, etc. and thanked the Universe for having already created the solutions.

What surprised me all week was how calm and relaxed I was about the whole thing.  I wasn’t worrying about what to take, what if I forgot something, take the wrong things – blah, blah, blah.  I had a handout I had written quite awhile, so I made some changes and printed them.  I made notes, thought about what to take and went through my samples.  I had my massage on Wednesday morning so I had all of Thursday to put things together.  I had a really good day on Thursday, I felt relaxed and found I had a lot of energy.

What surprised me the most was finding myself putting my samples in the boxes I had bought to organize them in a more logical way.  I have been frustrated a lot because I didn’t know where particular items are, so this will help at other times.  That still leaves the tote bags filled downstairs, they need it as well.  I also said I would bring something to eat – I knew I wanted to bring little brownies but not sure what else.  Friday after I saw Mom, I picked up the brownies and a ring cake.

Thursday was a really good day and I enjoyed it, Friday wasn’t quite as energetic but still was a really good day.  I will admit to feeling a nervous Saturday morning as I put everything together and loaded the car.  Today is not very energetic, but that’s perfectly fine.  I did the seminar without stressing myself out or worrying and I prefer to do it that way.  I must be trusting the Universe a lot more than I have in the past.

Saturday turned out to be sunny, a real bonus for us lately.  Mostly it is bits of sun between large bouts of rain, snow and hail.  Friday was quite an interesting day – Eddie called early in the morning to say he has 3″ of snow at the Future of Flight.  Down here we had a hail storm and we keep getting showers of hard rain.  This is Spring?  Even so, the flowers are blooming, even the camellias.


There wasn’t a big crowd, probably about 20 to 25.  I felt the time crunch on my 2 – 3 minutes and I don’t know if I really said things that gave them a clue to what I do.  What was interesting was toward the end, they saw the USB drives and loved the one that is shaped like a credit card.  So this was definitely a learning experience, if I do it again, I will probably talk about business cards and how to stand out from just pasteboard cards.  I met several people who were really interested in the business card USB and one guy said he was interested in the chocolate.  I don’t have his business card, so I don’t know if he will contact me.  Or he might not have liked the chocolate bar.  We’ll see.

I spent a lot of time listening to what the four experts had to say about investing in silver, in real estate, having a 508 non-profit and how to leverage your assets to make money.  The 508 non-profit interested me, I’s like to know more about that.  The others I couldn’t quite grasp how it all worked – I couldn’t picture it for that “I know that I know” understanding.  A lot of material in 2 to 3 hours.  I noticed the seminar went mostly non-stop, so people who had to us the facilities or take some thing to eat just got up and did it.  I really wasn’t the distraction it usually is, I liked that.  It started at 1:30 and they had an hour or so afterwards for people to talk to the presenters and also something to eat.  It was nearly 7 when I got home – Eddie had done the laundry and read in the afternoon.

I will call or email the people I met and gave me business cards and see what happens.
