OK, so a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be able to attend Chalene Johnson’s Smart Success live event. (Thank you hubby for letting me go!) There must have been something in the air this year, because the event was absolutely incredible. I’ve been to many seminars before where I’ve left feeling overwhelmed and more confused. I mean, I get excited about what the speakers talk about, but I never really know how to process the information and where to start after I get home. Ever felt like that? Am I the only one?
As an entrepreneur, are you wondering where the hell you start and how others do things? Chalene nailed it. Smart Success is different. Chalene has taken everything she has learned from her mentors, Brian Tracy, Brendon Burchard and Jeff Walker and broke it down into smaller chunks for those of us who tend to get distracted by shiny objects.
Questioning her success? She took everything she learned from those guys, and put it into play. She always wanted to write a book and have it make the New York Times Best Sellers list. Well, she did it. She wrote her book and it made the NYT Best Sellers list. So for the writers out there, you need to learn from her! Her podcast has also ranked high in iTunes – and it hasn’t even been a year yet!
Chalene had several guest speakers at the even this year. Two of them were popular podcast/entreprenuer gurus; Lewis Howes, from the popular podcast, School of Greatness, and Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income. I’ll get to them later. Right now, I wanna talk about another guest speaker. His name is Bo Eason. HE. WAS. AH-MAZING. He’s a former NFL player, now actor, playwright and speaker.
That man commanded the stage for an hour. Not once did my mind stray from watching his performance. I didn’t have the need to check my phone for any notifications. In fact, I forgot I had my phone sitting on the table in front of me! I loved the story of how his dream as a kid was to become the best safety in the NFL and he achieved it, even when people didn’t believe in him. By the end of his performance, I felt like I had gone on the same journey he had.
Bo teaches people how to tell their story with passion. I have never seen anything like that at any of seminars I have been to in the past, and I’ve been to many. You’re probably wondering what the hell story telling has to do with Smart Success. Well, he teaches you how to connect with people and grab their attention, make them forget they have to pee or check their phones. 😉 Has that ever happend to you? You’re watching a perfomance and you just forget about real life for a moment?
Lewis Howes was a big ball of energy on the stage. The dude is entertaining to watch. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know much about him until I saw him speak. He was former athlete who ended up broke and sleeping on couches until he figured out that he can make serious money online. He’s now a popular podcast host, a speaker and lifestyle coach.
Another guest speaker was Dr. Mcayla Sarno. Dr. Sarno is an EMDR specialist and can help you get through some mental road blocks. Let’s face it, we all have mental road blocks right? Her presentation was powerful and brought some people to tears.
In keeping with Smart Success. You definintely need a money person. She brought in Mel Abraham, a CPA, author and entreprenuer. He talked about how you should protect yourself and your assets. I won’t go into detail because frankly – I can’t remember what he talked about. Eek! I know, but I have his book so I can read it and start the process.
The last speaker of the weekend was Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income. I was excited for this one. Chalene threw a party the night before for her VIPs. Pat was walking into the room, as I was about to walk out. I recognized him immediately. I asked him if he was going to speak the next day. I mean, why else would he be at the cocktail party? He didn’t answer at first, but then said he was. YES! He’s one cool dude, and no I’m not saying that just because he’s also (part) filipino. Have you listened to his podcast? I just started listening to it a couple of months ago. What you hear in the podcast is all him. He’s just like that in person. Pat’s presentation delivered, just as I expected. It was about how to get raving fans. Sounds kinda funny, but think about, if you are a podcaster, writer, speaker – hell, an entreprenuer, you want raving fans. #duh
Smart Success live is not just some rah-rah event that makes you feel gooey inside. You leave there with a better idea on how to structure your day and become more successful in your life and business. Plus, you get to meet some awesome like-minded people there. There’s truth to the saying, “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” So, it’s probably time to stop hanging out with those Negative Nellies.
Oh, it’s also not just a live event; there is the online academy that is available 24/7. She will teach you how you can figure out what your priorities are, how to create and achieve smart goals, reverse engineer your day, and how to work less to enjoy life. (Even if you haven’t figured out what your business will be yet.) HELLO – who doesn’t want that?! If you are familiar with Chalene, this may sound like her 30 Day Push. 30 Day Push just scratches the surface of what she teaches. It’s like the covering of a pincode you have to use a penny to scratch off. Smart Success goes deep into the glam trenches and makes it all clear. By the time you finish the online program and attend the live event, you’ll be saying, “DUH! That’s how they do it!”

You sooo need to do this. The live event only happens once a year. But you can dive into the Smart Success modules now, and learn from someone who knows what she’s doing. (She speaks on Brendon Burchard’s stage and has spoken on Brian Tracy’s stage too.) So, yeah, I’m an affiliate for Chalene, but I believe 1000% in how she teaches. If you want to learn from the best and have a seat saved for the next live event, sign up here. It will sell out and this will be your secret IN to the next event!
