Life After Selling

In this fascinating interview, Jon Loomer and I talk about how two layoffs in a row led him to create a blog…and then how, over time, Jon was able to turn that blog into the hub of what has become a hugely popular (and highly profitable) community of advanced Facebook marketers. We also talked about Jon’s recommended strategy for using Facebook to grow a highly engaged audience, even when starting from zero.

How Kevin Thompson Generated $16M in Revenue by Helping Entrepreneurs to Become Master Connectors

,

While Kevin is well known as a Master Connector, his unique gift is empowering his clients by showing them how to step back from their current view of their business long enough to see their bigger game, play it with more simplicity, and do it far more profitably.

Even entrepreneurs who see themselves as great connectors, generally only create relationships that SEEM logical on the surface.

Kevin definitely helps his clients open more of the doors they already know would be valuable… but the magic… and the exponential growth… comes when he shows them how to open the un-obvious and most profitable doors they can’t currently see.

Listen to the Audio

Life After Selling

In this episode, Kevin and I talked about how he’s transformed himself from an entrepreneur running a small carpet cleaning company, into an entrepreneur who’s sold over $16 million worth of information products that teach other business owners how to create more profitable business relationships by opening the doors they don’t currently even know exist.
