Over the weekend I was at the San Mateo Marriott attending Brendon Burchard‘s Experts Academy 3 day seminar. His website states, “The program is a private 3-day intensive called Experts Academy and it’s sole focus is on how to make you THE expert in your industry so you can get big-time clients, contracts, paydays, and press coverage for your business.” It was a FANTASTIC and inspiring weekend – I learned so much!! It was just the infusion of information and sense of possibility that I really needed right now to grow my business. I feel like I have “come alive” again and now am ready to move forward again in new and more effective ways. Brendon is very inspiring as a trainer – great content and presence. Check it out!! I strongly recommend anything Brendon does!
During the weekend, Brendon showed us how to use Flip Video camcorders to make videos to post on our websites. I had not seen them before and I was fascinated how easy it was to use. I decided I needed one to carry around so I could record mini videos about business giving as I run across great examples. Today I was replacing my watch at Brighton and wished I had one so I could have recorded the great things told to me by the Brighton store staff at the Cherry Creek Mall about the company’s philanthropy.
So when I got home, I went online to do some research and figure out how to order a Flip Video. I found that the new smaller version called the Mino can be customized with a cover design. As I read further, I learned that right now of the many designs available to choose from, 9 are part of a promotion called “Flip for Good” – For every 15 camcorders sold with a Flip for Good design, they donate a camcorder to charity. For more information, go to: www.flipvideospotlight.com/flipforgood. Of course, once I saw that, I selected Geometric Twirl as my design so I could participate in the program!
A recommendation…when purchasing products for use in your business (or personally), pay attention, When you see products and services that give back – check them out. Consider your purchase needs and if possible, buy from that company and support their efforts!
And soon – you will see video interviews with companies that give back right here!! Stay Tuned!
