The last VIP Friday happens this week. Well, last until September. And it is now even better than ever: Reimagined, retested, and 100% perfected for you!
VIP Friday is a collaborative, shared experience of individual focus, accountability and productivity. Orangized in three segments. On a Friday.
What does VIP stand for?
VIP = Virtual Immediate Progress
Virtual = electronically connected, by phone or computer
Immediate = occurring or done at once; instant, i.e. in this moment
Progress = forward or onward movement toward a goal or destination
What else do you need to know?
VIP Friday is a DIY member exclusive. Costs under $100. And YES, you may use your Mastermind money credits (email me for redemption details). But don't let the low price fool you: VIP Friday delivers HUGE value.
So if immediate progress is on your agenda, this VIP Friday is your chance to make it happen. You'll get the time, the space, the accountability, and the support to finally get it done. (Whatever "it" is!)
Take a look at the new and improved agenda to see if this is for you: 👇
"I wanted to take a quick minute to say thank you for all your advice on the call this morning. I feel very blessed to have you in my life and on my team with all your brilliant ideas and support. Thanks for being you. And, thanks for collecting such amazing people into the SOHO community. It really is inspiring to listen to and to be around people who are walking the walk and getting things done." ~Connie Dorigan, CPC, www.dorigan.com
"Thank YOU!! It was a very relevant and reassuring meeting with you. I have so much more focus, motivation and enthusiasm around our business since the beginning of the year when I took the time to contemplate, strategize and plan. And it already seems to be paying off – literally!" ~ Jennifer Corio, www.cobaltdesignworks.com
"Thanks for putting together such a great group, Ronnie, where I can actually say my business grew 61% in one year because of ideas and support I received through SoHo MM!!" ~Victoria Cook, ACC, www.TheGuiltFreeCoach.com

"I enjoy and appreciate all the attention and the direction of the new Marketing Mastermind. I notice your added energy and focus and find value in it. Hearing the same things in different ways allows the information to integrate more fully. After listening to you, I am ever more understanding of the dance between listening and sharing. When you speak, there is the intertwining of your years of experience. I am gradually learning the various pieces that you put together so skillfully and gracefully. Then you top it off with your powerful strength of ideation." ~ Caron MacLane, Circle Coach & Consultant, www.CaronCircleCC.com

"I just finished my marketing plan. I can't believe how easy it was after your class...I can't believe I actually have a marketing plan put together. Good gracious, I'd read quite a few marketing books and took notes, but then all I had was a computer file with a lot of notes. Now, after your one-hour class--and the Friday deadline--I actually wrote it down and even went through some of those notes while I did it. Wow. I can't believe I did it! Thanks so much, Ronnie. You're terrific!" ~Julie McDonald Zander, Chapters of Life Memory Books, www.chaptersoflife.com
