CreativeLIVE - Free Live Course Feb 14-15

I have a surprise for you.

You may know that I host live training events that cover the ideas in The Personal MBA a few times each year.

There’s nothing quite like learning with a motivated group of smart, ambitious people. Books are great (I love them), but there’s a ton of value in setting aside time with other people to learn useful ideas, ask questions, and discuss how they apply to businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Up to this point, if you wanted to study this material directly with me, you’d have to fly to Colorado for three days and pay thousands of dollars. My past workshop participants have found it a great investment, but I know that it’s not possible for everyone.

That’s why I’m happy to announce that I’m teaching my course live online February 14th and 15th, 2013.

Best of all: it’s completely free, and available worldwide.

Join me for a FREE online course February 14-15, 2013

CreativeLIVE is an awesome new company that specializes in live training. I’ve had my eye on them for a while, and a month ago, they asked me to teach a course.

This course will cover every idea in the “Business" section of The Personal MBA:

  • Value Creation: discovering what people need or want, then creating it.
  • Marketing: attracting attention and building demand for what you’ve created.
  • Sales: turning prospective customers into paying customers.
  • Value Delivery: giving your customers what you’ve promised and ensuring that they’re satisfied.
  • Finance: bringing in enough money to keep going and make your effort worthwhile.

Permanently Improve Your Career

Think about it. How much easier would your career be if you were able to…

  • Spot promising business opportunities in the world around you?
  • Evaluate new business ideas and strategies in minutes, capturing the great ideas and discarding the rest?
  • Discover what’s holding your business back, then remove that barrier decisively?

This is not a watered-down workshop: it’s the same in-depth training I currently charge thousands for.

I’ve taught this course many times. After each workshop, it’s common for participants to quit their job to start a profitable business, increase the profitability of their company, get promoted in their current career, or discover an untapped business opportunity that finally pays them what they’re really worth.

That’s why I love teaching it.

The “Catch"

Here’s the catch: you have to tune in LIVE if you want to get the course for free. It’s only going to be live once: February 14-15, 2013.

I firmly believe that this training is the very best thing you can do to permanently increase your productivity and effectiveness as a businessperson. These ideas can help you make more money, get more done, and have more fun for the rest of your life. It’s well worth investing two days to study them.

I’d also recommend attending even if you’ve already read (or listened to) the book: this information is well worth reviewing. I’ve had one participant of my live course attend all but one workshop I’ve offered, and he keeps coming back because he picks up new ideas every time. (He’s also doubled his salary in the process.)

Therefore, I think it’d be wise to do whatever you need to do to attend the live workshop on those days. Take a few vacation days. Reschedule appointments. Remember: it’s only going to happen once.

If you absolutely can not make it, creativeLIVE also offers an option to purchase a recording at a very small fraction of what I charge for the live workshop. That’s also a good option, and if you register in advance, you save $100. Still, I’d recommend tuning in live if you can.

One More Surprise

Since creativeLIVE specializes in live courses, it’s much more fun to have a live audience.

Would you like to be in it?

Here’s how you can join me for the live taping in Seattle: shoot a 60 second video that describes…

  • The business you’d like to start in the next 12 months, or…
  • The business you’re currently working on.

Upload that video to Facebook, YouTube, or Vimeo, then send the link via Twitter to joshkaufman": and "creativelive using the hashtag #personalmbaLIVE. We’ll select six people to attend the live course in studio, and you’ll be a live, active participant in the discussion.
