My Kind of People

I just got back from a three day seminar on how to build a speaking business. It covered everything from discovering your own personal passions to creating products to augment your topics. The best part of the whole event though was the people. Ever since I started down this path of self-employment, I’ve discovered that these are my kind of people. People with a passion and a purpose. People who are choosing their own destiny. People who don’t accept failure and don’t cry every time they don’t get things handed to them on a silver platter.

How about you? Have you discovered “your kind of people”? Are you associating with people that bring you up, or tear you down? Are they speaking into your life, or are they sucking the life out of you? Personally, I’ve never been happier with any group I’ve ever associated with. I hope you can find people like this to surround yourself with as well.

    It was great meeting you at SIF 2010. I’m still working to find my path, but I wholeheartedly agree about surrounding oneself with people who will enrich our lives as well as allow us to enrich theirs.

    Someone at the conference noted that individuals often become like the 5 people they spend most of their time with. Therefore, if a person is looking to truly reinvent themselves or pursue a new path in life, then it may be inevitable and natural that their social and professional circles evolve as well.

  • That’s definitely what I’m hoping for Todd! The people of 48 Days and Free Agent Academy and their related events are full of awesome go getters who are accomplishing a ton in their lives and businesses. I’m hoping some of that will rub off on me and allow me to reach my goals and objectives for my life and family.
