I first heard of Pay for Performance, CPA (Cost Per Acquisition) and other resources which offer a pay only for results system a little late in the game. I was at an event July 2009 when one of the speakers was talking about his results with CPA.

Then I found out how difficult it was to get the attention of the CPA firms. The work with the big guys, Fortune companies and those who have already proven their tract record and close ratios.

It seems redundant to use CPA firms if you already have a large database and a track record of sales. So after many attempts at trying to sway them into working with me, I put it on the back burner.

Now, here it is 18 months later and the tables have turned. CPA firms are looking for new clients. There is a lot more competition out there and they are hungry.

Continuing Education

About ten years ago I decided to start taking classes where others like me, authors, speakers, trainers and leaders would also be in the audience. I loved being among a group of people who believed in continuing education.

These people are fun, open minded and are always looking for new and better ways to conduct their business. And, they’re always open to meeting new people and creating Joint Ventures.

I enjoy going to courses outside of the are even though the Bay Area has a very large base of authors and speakers. But when I go to locations around the country it expands my contact base much broader.

I have met authors of every degree of success. I have met speakers who have helped me develop programs. There are so many incredible people out there in the world, just waiting to meet you.

They might have one idea that will set you apart from others or have a connection that might be the perfect next opportunity. Whether it’s a Joint Venture of putting on a program together or with a group of others or they might host a program for you to be a platform speaker.

There is no limit to what you might be able to do when you develop quality relationships. It is such a joy to meet others who are following the same development programs as you.

I make it a habit of going to at least four to eight every year. I save the business cards and keep in touch with those who I develop a strong relationship with. It might take awhile, but eventually, together you’ll be able to create something fun and productive.
