I just realized how lucky I am.
Over the past twenty years that I’ve been a business coach, I’ve worked REALLY hard to build awesome companies, build great teams, and build the trust of entrepreneurs around the world.
I was just getting ready to upload this photo and realized that these six companies are ones I’m humbled to have built the trust of.
Five of these great brands have paid $2,500 each to put their logo on my laptop for 2010.
The companies are: Outsourcing Things Done, Maverick Business Adventures, Grasshopper.com, Media Temple, and Hire Better. I got so lucky to find such awesome ones. And in the process I turned down many others (some who just didn’t get in early enough, and others who weren’t just the perfect fit yet). Anyway – thanks to all of them.
Yes they are paying me – but you all know me – I wouldn’t rave about them if I didn’t love them. And if anything changed – I’d be the first to give them there money back and take the sticker off too.
I’m lucky to have such great brands supporting me that you’d be smart to check out too.
Lastly, yes there are 6 stickers here. I gave one free spot away to the non-profit that I support. I contacted the CEO of Kiva.org and asked him if he’d like to be on my laptop with the other brands. He loved the idea and said yes. I then told him I’d give them the spot for free because their mission was so similar to mine. They are all about helping entrepreneurs grow too.
This year, I’ll be speaking in front of tens of thousands of entrepreneurs. They’ll all see these six logos. And trust me, I’ll be raving about them all year too.
