So….the event with Randy Gage is history. We had a decent attendance level (it wasn’t meant as a big event). A good percentage of the attendees were seeing the Agel business for the first time so there will be ample opportunity for followup. A few came just to hear Randy and were already doing their own venture.
Randy was, as always, excellent. He is very low key compared to other MLM trainers. His persona is sincere, caring, thoughtful and direct. This is exactly what resonates with me so I naturally think it’s the better approach.
The first speaker, a nameless speaker, got totally carried away with herself. She was enthralled with her own voice. She approached me before the meeting began and asked me how I would be introducing her. She wanted to know which of her accomplishments I would stress. I wasn’t the one introducing her, I told her, and I was pretty sure that everyone was here to hear Randy Gage. I know that, were I in the same situation, my goal would be to get done with my bit as quickly as possible and sit down to learn from Randy. She thought otherwise, speaking on and on about her parents and her friends, spilling into the next speaker’s allotted time and topic alike.
Nonetheless, she eventually finished. Randy came on and revived the energy,restored the focus, and saved the day!
Today’s lesson, I guess, is to not let a needy, self-absorbed person try to steal the spotlight of your event.
