If I offered you an opportunity to build a business, gave you free coaching and tons of support, showed you a step-by-step proven blueprint for how to be successful, and helped you create a 5-year plan to become a millionaire…would you be interested in learning more?
My name is Matt Randall. I’m a business coach with over 30 years of experience helping people set and achieve goals. I’m looking for 10 highly motivated and hard-working GEN-Zr’s (the 18-25 year old group) who want to be the next generation of millionaires by age 30. This is no joke, and it will take hard work, but it can be done. In fact, I’ll introduce you to others who have already reached that goal using this system.

Just do your job.
When people say they are afraid of public speaking, what they commonly mean is that they are afraid of being embarrassed in front of a group. That’s completely understandable. Nobody enjoys feeling silly or being thought of as a fool.
Something I learned almost 30 years ago in Dale Carnegie Public Speaking was the idea that “What the audience is thinking about you is none of your business.” This takes a moment to digest, but realize that if you are on stage, you are there for a reason. You have a job to do and the more you worry about what is going in everyone else’s head, the less you are able to focus on doing your job. The audience is there to be educated, entertained, informed, amazed, or whatever you job is. Just do your job and stop worrying about what they are thinking.
What makes people nervous is the thought that the audience is going to criticize every word they say. Unless you are a politician, the audience is usually there to support you and they want you do well. They want you to be the expert that you are. They want you to do your job, so just get up there and do it. You will be great!
“So, what if I make a mistake?” Just keep on truckin’. Keep doing your job. It’s OK and the audience will support you as long as you keep doing your job. Mistakes will happen and it’s how you handle the mistakes with grace and poise that will have the audience sending you positive energy. I’ve seen many presenters lose their notes, have technology glitches, or break down in tears to the point where they can’t even speak. The audience was always there with warm applause and cheers of support…as long as they pulled it together and did their job.
So, stop worrying about what is going in their heads and keep yours together. You have a job to do and you will be great. Just do it!

Prepare to make copious notes and bring lots of questions. This event will blow your mind.
The 411 on 1-1’s – meeting #5
In the previous post about 1-1 meetings (review here) we discussed how the first 4 meetings with a networking partner should be handled. Now, let’s make a few assumptions.
- Assuming that you have established KLT (Know/Like/Trust) with your referral partner
- And, you understand their business well
- And, you have been able to find a few referrals for them (hopefully they have for you as well)
…what more would you have to discuss?
Well…plenty. Using the CANEI principle (Constant And Never-Ending Improvement) you need to assess whether the referrals you are passing are actually resulting in closed business.
Meeting #5 is a quality control check up.
In this meeting, you review the referrals that have been passed and ask some very important questions. Assuming that you track your referrals, you present your list and check off each in this fashion:
- I sent you a referral to Jennifer.
- Did you contact her?
- Did she make an appointment with you?
- Did that turn into a sale for you?
- Was she a good referral for you?
- Do you want more referrals like this one?
- Is there anything I could do to find better referrals for you?
- Who do you want to meet next?
From this quality control check up you can make changes and improvements. Without it, you may be sending leads, not qualified referrals (the subject of another post), or it’s possible that you are sending the wrong type of referrals.
I recommend doing regular QC check ups as often as you can.
