Miss Cadaver Feng is well received when she gives cool homework like watching scary movies, carving pumpkins. She even gives them a fun writing assignment to write a scary story. Charlie and Fenny work on costumes together. Charlie is a mummy and Finny is a Pirate. The other kids in class wear neat costumes too. Charlie and his class go in a spook hearse mobile driven by a tall pale white chauffeur. He drives them to spook castle. It is lined with gravestones. Loud cackling, witches laugh are heard as they pull up a long driveway. Miss Cadaver opens the door and takes them on a scary tour. The castle is haunted and starts to moan and groan. The wood floors creak with each step the kids take. Princess Zanya and Prince Zoya are not impressed with the scar riggings as they are familiar with all the spooky techniques because they live in a castle. The students are spooked by a witch, ghosts and skeletons. They fall through a trap door in the basement and land in a water maze. The kids swim in the water maze and hungry piranha fish jump out of the water. The fish start to bite and nibble on the kids. The kids realize Miss Cadaver Feng brought them to the castle to be snacks for her pet fish. Will the kids survive this spook castle? Listen and find out if it will be a Happy Halloween with lots of treats or will Spook Castle be a trick? #1 Japan, Australia, #1 Canada, #1 UK, #1 Brazil, #1 Belgium, #1 India, #1 South Korea, #1 Bahamas, #3 Italy, #5 Mexico, #4 Germany, #1 Tawian, #4 Kenya, #4 New Zealand, #5 France, #7 Ireland, #10 Sweden, #16 Norway, #1-#26 USA! & #15 South Africa :) Paypal (friends & family) email@example.com $ Please support us & enjoy our books at Amazon :) Thank you!

Melissa Soalt is a women's self-defense pioneer, a black belt hall of fame recipient, former trauma psychotherapist, and the creator of Fierce & Female Self Defense. She is a forerunner in full-force padded assailant scenario training, her approach is both practical and transformational. She has taught thousands of women how to safeguard their boundaries, protect themselves from danger and resist attack while reconnecting women with deep-seated, primal and emotional powers to live safer, bolder, and fuller lives and to reverse female fear. Melissa is an outspoken advocate for self-defense as physical feminism, she has been featured in national and international media and has also taught in Europe, India, Nepal, and Kenya. She provides customized online training and corporate consulting and is at work on a manifesto for women. In this episode, Melissa and I discuss: Pre-assault indicators, the power of fear, and innate awareness. Staying focused and alert for street crimes Signs that someone is going to physically attack you Seeing the whole person Key Takeaways: Pre-assault indicators go beyond physical cues, manipulation and terror tactics are part of it. Fear is pervasive, it affects every decision you make in your life. We need to have an innate awareness, attuned fully to our intuition. The feeling of unease, or discomfort are important factors. . When you feel like a person is trying to distract you, do these things: watch their hands, have a neutral face, see as wide as possible, create a bit of distance, and observe scouting. Watch out for signs of when someone's about to attack you. They will often be anxious, build up adrenaline, and so will be shifting from foot to foot, going into a boxer's stance. You may also notice their jaw clenching forward and an unmistakable tension. You want to see the whole person if you want to remain safe and prepared from any sudden movements that they may do, watch their shoulders - they'll go back before striking. “Most of us don't go around punching things, choking people, grabbing people from behind. But we need to learn what that looks like so that if we're out in the street, or a shopping mall, and somebody has this intention, we'll see it faster - if we have that kind of training." — Cynthia Jolicoeur Rood Connect with Melissa Soalt: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fierceandfemale/ Website: http://www.fierceandfemale.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/melissa-soalt-aka-dr-ruthless-a457456/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTwPfQoC4d7TTj6KPoR1J5w CONNECT WITH CYNTHIA: If you'd like to chat with Cynthia, sign up for your Personal Safety Preparedness Consultation with her today!

Hellen Ngunjiri, Daraja's Business ManagerHellen Ngunjiri is the business manager of Daraja Academy, but that is the least of her role at the school. After moving to campus, Hellen quickly became a mother, mentor, cheerleader, and counselor to twenty-some girls, and she wants the world to know that's the part of her job that she values the most. Join her and host Jason Doherty in their conversation on Daraja Means Bridge Podcast about the interviewing and selection processes at Daraja, talking over the heart breaking and heart warming experiences they've had speaking to girls from all over the country, from out in the bush to the bottom of the slums. Hear how Daraja has changed each life individually, and see why Hellen says that Daraja absolutely must continue to grow. 3 Key Takeaways:How Hellen's conversation with one girl lead her to remain at Daraja for almost a decadeThe impact of FGM in the slums of KenyaHow Hellen has found Daraja's impact to be apart from all other local schools she has attendedAbout Daraja Academy and the Podcast:Jason and Jenni Doherty are the founders of Daraja Academy and parents to 115 current students and many alumni. Jenni comes from a family of eight children and is the first woman in her family to go to university. Jason comes from a family of five, and his passion is education.When Jason and Jenni Doherty – educators from the Bay Area – visited Kenya in 2006, they were struck by the degree that gender determined opportunity. For families living in deep poverty, access to education was already limited, but sons were still far more likely to attend secondary school than daughters. Girls were being left behind. Thus, they started Daraja Academy.Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but without the means to continue their education. The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare, and counseling services so students may focus on their academic and personal potential without the everyday barriers they would otherwise face. Their groundbreaking educational model has generated a community of students filled with intellectual curiosity and a hunger to learn. Through this podcast, we get to know the stories of the girls of Daraja, Daraja Academy, and all the incredible people that support and strengthen Daraja.Special Thanks to Salvador Santana for the use of his song, “Rise Up,” in our podcast!Connect with Daraja Means Bridge:Website:https://www.daraja-academy.org/LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/company/daraja-academy/https://www.linkedin.com/in/jason-doherty-baa9735a/Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/DarajaAcademyTwitter:https://twitter.com/darajaacademyInstagram:https://www.instagram.com/darajaacademy/YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtQiWAdnakahyCnRlvWzoSAEmail:firstname.lastname@example.orgBe her bridge!

Civil activists in Africa face increasingly strong headwinds. States continue to use tried-and-tested repression alongside increasingly sophisticated forms of legal and financial pressure to limit the influence of the continent's activists. Despite these obstacles, Africa is brimming with energy, as showcased during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet this political activism does not always follow the path of the formal civil society organisations that Western support has flowed to since the 1990s. This week, Alan is joined by L. Muthoni Wanyeke, the Open Society Foundation's Africa Director, to talk about this mixed picture. They discuss the successes of popular movements in Sudan, the tragic fate of South Sudan, the conspicuous lack of an anti-war movement in Ethiopia and the challenges posed by mounting authoritarianism in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Alan asks whether the model for civil society organising needs to change and Muthoni argues that we can empower activists by reforming African philanthropy and building a better framework for dialoguing with state actors.

Nomadic communities in Kenya say the end of their culture is on the horizon. Increasingly unpredictable weather patterns caused by climate change are forcing them to abandon nomadism for crop farming. - ケニアの遊牧民コミュニティーは彼らの文化の終りが見え始めたと言っています。気候変動が原因となって天候のパターンがますます予想できなくなっており、彼らは遊牧を放棄して作物農業をせざるをえなくなっています。
Các cộng đồng du mục tại Kenya cho biết nền văn hóa du canh của họ nay mai sẽ biến mất. Những hiện tượng thời tiết không thể tiên đoán ngày càng gia tăng do biển đổi khí hậu, khiến họ phải từ bỏ cuộc sống du mục để chấp nhận lối sống định cư canh tác.

The latest on the conflict in Tigray, as TPLF and ENDF forces clash north of the city of Dessie in Amhara. Kenya is one of more than 20 countries where suicide is still a criminal offence. We meet the campaigners trying to change that. And concerns over an increased risk of HIV transmission prompt South Africa to turn down the Russian Sputnik V Covid-19 jab.
Greg interviews Lindsay Kiptiness, the Kenyan Ambassador to Thailand. Ambassador Kiptiness begins by introducing himself and explains his responsibilities as ambassador to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Burma. He explains his unfortunate arrival during COVID times, and his desire to really explore Thailand when it fully re-opens. The Kenyan healthcare system is behind Thailand's, but he notes that Nairobi did serve as the center of COVID treatment for UN officials. Greg asks the Ambassador about Kenyan products, and the Ambassador regales Greg with pitches for Kenyan coffee and Kenyan purple tea. No, that's not a typo, and the Ambassador assures us it is the best tea in the world. :) The conversation continues on to cover cultural misconceptions, the fickle nature of the global community in times of crisis, and the expatriate Kenyan (and African communities) in Thailand, which is growing, and the Thai community in Kenya, which unfortunately is not. Greg and the Ambassador discuss the reasons for this, and the Ambassador contends there is simply not enough information about Kenya and Africa in Thailand. In fact, the Ambassador makes the point that Greg has made many times on the podcast: all expats are to some extent ambassadors for their home country, and Mr. Kiptiness encourages all Kenyans in Thailand to do their best to promote their home country. Don't forget that Patrons get the ad-free version of the show as well as swag and other perks. And we'll keep our Facebook, Twitter, and LINE accounts active so you can send us comments, questions, or whatever you want to share.
This week's guest is native New Yorker Abby Lehman, a natural storyteller, connector, and social entrepreneur working at the intersection of community, government, and business. As a fourth-generation New Yorker, from a family of East European migrants, Abby is living evidence of the value and impact of immigration on a city and nation's success. Abby explains how her social impact NGO, Photo Start, uses photography as a gateway for under-privileged youth in Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and the United States, to open up educational, vocational, or professional pathways so as to equip them with problem-solving, entrepreneurial, and financial skills necessary to create transformative economic opportunities for them as individuals, for their families and their communities. We discuss the transformative impact of her new rural and urban regeneration innovation program, Syzygy Cities, which aligns community needs with Government initiatives and business interests to stimulate economic and social development. Abby breaks down her current live initiative, Invest Southwest, working with the city of Chicago, national and local commercial partners, and local NGOs to provide the infrastructure, services, and solutions to create more economically and socially resilient communities. Abby is an inspirational female leader, a driving force for positive socio-economic change, forged through her clarity of strategic thought, collaborative spirit, and forceful and eloquent voice.

Wapanda mlima 34 leo wameanza safari ya kupanda mlima mrefu zaidi barani Afrika , mlima Kilimanjaro nchini Tanzania kama sehemu ya juhudi za kimataifa za kuchagiza upatikanaji wa chanjo ya COVID-19 kwa wote. Kundi hilo linalojumuisha watu kutoka katika nyanja za biashara, serikali, wanamichezo mashuhuri na wawakilishi wa vijana linatarajiwa kuwasili kwenye kilele cha mlima huo tarehe 24 Oktoba siku ya Umoja wa Mataifa. (TAARIFA YA FLORA NDUCHA) Kwa mujibu wa shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la mpango wa maendeleo UNDP, wapanda mlima hao kupitia mradi wa Kilimanjaro Initiatibve ,KI wanawakilisha tamaduni, uchumi, mazingira na mabara tofauti wakiwemo vijana 10 waliofadhiliwa kutoka miradi tofauti ya kijamii nchini Tanzania na shule za Tanzania na Kenya na pia wanawake wanariadha nyota wa mbio za milimani, viongozi wa kisiasa, maafisa wa Umoja wa Mataifa, madaktari, wanasayansi na wawakilishi wa vijana. Lengo lao kubwa kupanda mlima Kilimanjaro ni kuelimisha kuhusu haja ya haraka ya kuwa na usawa wa usambazaji wa chanjo dhidi ya COVID-19. Fedha zitakazopatikana wakati wa kupanda mlima zitakwenda kwenye mfuko wa Muungano wa Afrika AU wa kupambana na COVID-19 na kampeni ya Go Give One inayosimamiwa na shirika la afya la Umoja wa Mataifa WHO. Na huko fedha zitatumika kutoa chanjo za COVID-19, huku kipaumbele kikitolewa kwa wanaozihitaji zaidi katika nchi ambazo haziwezi kumudu chanjo hiyo. Tim Challen, mwanzilishi wa NGO ya Kilimanjaro Innitiative (KI) iliyoandaa upandaji mlima huo au The Big Climb akimkunuu mkurugenzi mkuu wa WHO Dkt. Tedros Ghebreyesus amesema "Kuelimisha kuhusu changamoto ya kutokuwepo haki ya upatikanaji wa chanjo ni muhimu ili kuleta suluhusho lenye usawa. Lazima tushirikiane kama familia ya kimataifa kupambana na COVID-19. The Big Climb inawakilisha mchango wetu katika juhudi hizi za pamoja. " Naye mmoja wa washiriki Dkt.

“I just turned around and it was like, oh man, I'm an Olympic photographer. With that one click.” Jason Suarez — also known as @notafraidtofail — is one of the best, most sought-after photographers in running today. He has shot nearly every track and field event, every major marathon, and every athlete you know, love, and follow in this sport. And we recorded this conversation just a few days after Jason returned from a true dream-come-true experience: being an official photographer at the Olympic Games. He shot the track and field events inside Olympic Stadium, and dabbled in shooting new events, including gymnastics and swimming. But the Queens-born-and-raised former collegiate sprinter turned marathoner never planned for or expected this life. On this episode, Jason talks about his career trajectory — in addition to being a professional photographer, he also works for Apple — and about the importance of networking, relationships, and being a good person along the way. He talks about breaking into the industry, and shares his career highlights, including spending a week in Kenya with Eliud Kipchoge. Plus, he talks about feeling burned out and about questioning his next moves as a photographer. SPONSOR: UCAN. Click here and use code ALI for 20% off your entire UCAN order!

with AfterWords Jesus tells us about different soils and what results to expect once seeds get sown into them. Mercy, inc. has a program that puts this parable into practice by educating Africans on farming and making disciples. While many are staying home during the pandemic, this is not an option when people are starving. Sharing the Gospel of Christ is necessary, especially when so many people are dying and could be entering eternity without Him.

Call it like it is, we live in a very very toxic world. Our ability to detoxify the more than 90,000 chemicals that have been introduced into our existence is certainly less robust than it needs to be. Indeed, new challenges face our ability to detoxify on a daily basis in terms of new products to which we are exposed, and even the water we drink. Today on the program I speak with Dr. Aly Cohen who has written a wonderful book entitled Non-Toxic: Guide to Living Healthy in a Chemical World along with her co-author Frederick S. vom Saal, PhD. Here's more about the authors: Dr. Aly Cohen is a board-certified rheumatologist and integrative medicine specialist, as well as an environmental health expert in Princeton, New Jersey. She has collaborated with the Environmental Working Group, Cancer Schmancer, and other disease-prevention organizations, and is coeditor of the textbook Integrative Environmental Medicine, part of the Oxford University Press Weil Integrative Medicine Library. In 2015, she created TheSmartHuman.com to share environmental health, disease prevention, and wellness information with the public. Dr. Fred vom Saal is a Curators' Distinguished Professor of Biology at the University of Missouri-Columbia. After college he taught biology as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Somalia and after the revolution there, he also taught in Kenya and then Paris before entering graduate school. Dr. vom Saal has published over 240 articles and reviews on his research. He has served on the editorial boards of numerous scientific journals and federal research review panels both in the United States and abroad. I am so delighted to share this very empowering information with all of you today on the program. ==== Dr. Aly Cohen is a board-certified Rheumatologist and Integrative Medicine Specialist, as well as an environmental health expert in Princeton, New Jersey.

Oil prices have been rising around the world for months. And people in Kenya know that as well as anyone. Fuel prices there were already much higher than in neighbouring countries. As they've continued to climb, so have the prices of everyday goods. So, how are people coping with the rising cost of living? And is there any relief on the horizon?

When Somalia wasn't happy with the direction of negotiations, they asked the International Court of Justice to step in. But, despite a decision from the court this week, it doesn't look like the matter will be resolved any time soon. So, can Kenya and Somalia every agree on their sea border?

Russell goes on a deep dive, explaining all the fun things that went on behind the scenes of the first day of this year's Funnel Hacking Live event! Hit me up on IG! @russellbrunson Text Me! 208-231-3797 Join my newsletter at marketingsecrets.com ClubHouseWithRussell.com ---Transcript--- What's up everybody? This is Russell Brunson. Welcome back to the Marketing Secrets podcast. It's been a little while since I've talked to you personally. That's not completely true. You guys have been listening to some of the Traffic Secrets episodes over the last few weeks, but right now I'm recording this episode about two weeks after Funnel Hacking Live 2021 is over. And I wanted to share some of the thoughts, some of the behind the scenes, some of the craziness and chaos that happened, and how we pulled off the biggest events since the coronavirus has hit inside of our industry. So with that said, I'll queue up the theme song. When I get back, we'll hang out and talk about the event. All right. So first off for those who came to Funnel Hacking Live that was so much fun. Thank you for coming, for participating, for playing all out. Folks who weren't able to come, but watched from home, thank you as well for participating. I hope you guys enjoyed it. It was really cool. This is our first year ever doing a hybrid where we were going to have people in person and at home. And honestly, I've never told anybody this, but about 30 days before Funnel Hacking Live actually happened, we had to make the decision if it was going to happen. And it's one of those weird meetings where it's like, "Do we do this? Or do we not?" Because COVID numbers are spiking and all sorts of like just the chaos and just all the things that were happening. And we had to basically put down a down payment on Hogwarts because yes, we rented Hogwarts for the inner circle and two comma club winners. And so that was like the drop dead. We have to write a check right now for, I don't know how much it was, quarter million dollars or whatever it was for Hogwarts. "Are we do this or not because there's no way to get this money back if we decide to not do Funnel Hacking Live," and I was like, "Wait, we may not be doing Funnel Hacking Live?" And they're like, "Well, this is the last shot to change it." I'm like, "Ah." So there's all the fear behind that. So finally, I was like, "All right, we're doing it. Put the money down. This is happening." As we got closer to the event, one of my kids got COVID at school and we're like, "Oh no," because I was like, "I don't really care. I'm not too nervous about getting COVID." Other than if I get COVID during the event, like that would be tragic, right? Like everyone's coming to hear me talk about funnels and stuff. And if I'm not there, I can't speak. Or are people can get on stage and get their pictures with me or all the different things. Give their awards on stage and it could have ruined the whole event for so many people who'd put it in life savings for some people to come and travel here and to be part of this thing. I got really, really nervous and so I started doing everything you can dream of to protect myself and my health. I was taking every pill and powder you can dream of. I had my natural path coming and doing I.V. drips throughout the day, so I'm working while I've got bags of stuff, hooked to all my veins and all the chaos to try to make sure that we could stay healthy for the event. We also normally fly commercial there, but I was like, "Anything I can do to minimize my exposure until the event happens the better." So we flew private out there and we got to FHL and we got their day earlier than I normally do, which was actually really nice. A chance to get to see everything and watch things get set up. You could tell there was something about year that was just different. The energy in the hallways. And you saw people was just, you could tell people missed being around each other and missed networking and all that kind of stuff. And so everything started building up towards that. And I remember the night before, so we did our big party at Hogwarts. We took the inner circle members and two comma cup winners and two comma club X-ers and all of our high-end coaching people to Hogwarts and we rented the whole thing out, which was crazy. So we got to be hanging out in Diagon Alley, and ride a Gringotts ride, and then get butter beer and just hang out and network. It was really a really cool special time for, I think everybody. But for me, I had to like leave a little early cause I was like, "I'm still not done with my slides," as Russell normally does. In fact, we brought our two twins. One of them was just like, "Dad, you're still not done with your slides" like this is crazy." I'm like, "I know I just- there's so many of them to do." Anyways, went back home that night and got everything ready. The next day was Funnel Hacking Live day. Those who haven't been to our event before, we don't start till like noon on day one, which gives us the morning to keep getting people registered and just gives me the morning to kind of prepare and make sure that I'm ready. It's scary when you start at nine. That means you have to be up by like six, preparing. Day one, we start at noon, which is really, really nice. And this day one was going to be interesting for a lot of reasons. Number one, it was the first time we had a virtual audience at home plus our normal people in the audience. And so there's kind of that dynamic that we had to kind of figure out at first, but also this year was our Click Funnel seven year birthday. And so I got up of very beginning and talked about entrepreneurship. Excuse me, I have a cough right now. I'm kind of recovering from, from Funnel Hacking Live, honestly. Anyway, and so I did my initial presentation and then I brought Todd out because we had something that we've been secretive and kept secret for the last, over a year now, which is, which is crazy that I kept a secret that long. You guys should be so proud of me. I'm not, I'm not very good at keeping secrets, but we announced that we are about to launch Click Funnels 2.0 and people went crazy. We kind of talked about it a little bit and I said, "You guys want to see a video of people who've actually seen Click Funnels 2.0?" and everyone went crazy as we watched this reveal video of just everybody watching it and freaking out. And it ended. And I was like, "Who here wants to see Click Funnels 2.0?" And they all went crazy and I was like, "Cool, tomorrow's our birthday. And tomorrow we're going to show you all inside everything." And it just like got quietly, just dead, quiet, awkwardly, quiet. I was like, "Oh crap, what do we, what do we do now?" And then I didn't know how to transition. That's when Todd is going to transition off stage and I was going to start the keynote presentation that I was going to give. It was just this weird thing. And I was like, "Okay, well, thanks, Todd." He kind of walks off. I totally messed that part up. And then I turned around and looked the audience and they were all just like, "You're really not going to show it to us right now?" I was like, "No, if I went to my first presentation," excuse me, which was one I was really excited for, it's called advanced funnel audibles. But because of the weird energy, I feel like the energy kind of dropped with my not giving them any info on 2.0 and do that next presentation. And it was the more advanced one. And I was so excited for that one, but I didn't feel like that one nailed it. I don't know when you're on stage. You can, you can feel like which one's like, "This crushed it," and which one's kind of you're like, "That didn't quite go perfect." And so I did the presentation. I think again, it was great, but it just didn't land. The energy wasn't what I wanted when I was sharing that. I wanted that to be my kickoff. So that was kind of one of those things where it's like, I think people understood what I was talking about. Blown away, but the energy just kind of wasn't... Anyway, this is me re-second guessing everything. I want to go back and redo day number one. But after that, then Anthony Trucks came and spoke on identity shifts and he was amazing. I've known him for quite a few years, but it's the first time I'd ever seen him speak in person and he just brought the level of energy and excitement that he brought was amazing. And just talking about his life and how many times he had these identity shifts in his life and how it affected everything and how to actually be able to take your identity and consciously change it, to be able to get the outcome that you're looking for in life. It was really, really cool. So Anthony spoke. After that Kaylin Poland came and spoke, which is exciting, because I wanted her to show how a lot of times people aren't in our industry, in our Click Funnels world, they think, "Oh, why sell physical products?" Or "I sell info products." Or they have a thing that they do. And I was trying to have Caitlin show that, no, you have a customer and you serve that customer. Right? And you do it through all means possible. You can sell them information, or physical products, or supplements, or coaching, or clothing, or whatever, your job is to serve those people. And that's the focal point. So she showed how they'd done that, Lady Boss, and how they've grown this huge company because of it. And that was really, really cool. After that, then we brought Stu McLaren on stage and we were able to give him a check for him and his wife's charity called Village Impact. And that's the group that I go to Kenya with every... Man, almost every year seems like. We're going in March, I believe, as long as it doesn't get canceled. But when we first launched Click Funnels, we set up where every time somebody builds a funnel, we donate a dollar towards the Village Impact and so this year's check was crazy. It's over $200,000, which was so cool and it's going to help so many amazing kids over in Africa. That was really fun. And then we also had a chance to launch a new site we'd built for Operation Underground Railroad called the Save a Child Challenge. And so we launched that at Funnel Hacking Live, which was really, really cool as well. And that was kind of everything before dinner. And then we fed everyone dinner there, because we wanted to keep people close around. And then that night we did workshops. Typically, if you've been to Funnel Hacking Live, in the past we do these round tables and everyone has a chance to be around the round tables, but because of COVID restrictions and stuff, we thought it'd be better to just do breakout rooms kind of. We had four breakout rooms. Jim Edwards went and talked about copywriting and he helped everybody actually build out their customer avatar, which is really cool because it's the foundation of all copy where most people never even do that. So he got them to actually build that out, which was really, really cool. Catherine Jones was back this year again, and she talked about funnels and building funnels and she did an amazing job as well. Rachel Miller came and talked about free traffic, which was really cool. And then Myron Golden talked about sales. And so those four people run these hour long workout workshop rooms. And while I was sitting there, I was supposed to be doing this other presentation that I was really excited for, but I was still kind of bummed about my my earlier presentation. I was like, "I don't want to give this. I just want to go home. I'm so tired. I want to go to bed. It's been such a long, stressful day," and all of a sudden people started filling back in the rooms and I'm like, "Oh man, I got to do this." And so I got on stage and I did my second presentation for the day, which was called Virtual Real Estate Secrets. And for whatever reason, I never know which ones are going to hit or not hit. But for whatever reason, the energy during that presentation nailed it. People were excited, they were on fire. They were just excited about the possibilities. What I was showing them was, I've talked about before on this podcast, but sometimes we talk about trying to build this huge empire. We're going to have tons of followers and fans and all these kind of things, but the reality is there's other ways to make money online too. And I talked about how in real estate you can buy a house and you can flip it. You can buy it and you can rehab it. You can buy it and you can put renters in it. There's all these things you do with real estate and I'm like, you can do the same things with virtual real estate, these little websites, these little funnels. And so I had like probably a dozen examples of little businesses that I've built that are just kind of running on autopilot, my little virtual real estate empire. And I kind of showed those things. And anyway, I think it was really cool because I think a lot of people, it opened their mind like, "Oh my gosh, I could do that. I could do that." And I started helping them just have ideas, of ways that they could get started easily without having to stress about, "What's my message going to be and who are my people," and all the things I think a lot of people get nervous about. So it's like, "Well, don't worry about that right now. Let's just make some small businesses. Make a business cash flows you a hundred bucks or 500 bucks or a thousand bucks." These are really easy to do when you understand the basics, so that was really fun one. And that wrapped up day number one, which was really cool. So anyway, I'm going to do a couple episodes, kind of talking about some of the core things that we did in this event. Throughout I'll also talk about the things we do during the event to help stimulate sales later in the event. Because you guys come to me, you want to learn marketing. So how do we use Funnel Hacking Live? How did we, did we use it to generate well over $10 million from the event? And so I'll talk about some of those things, but it all started on day number one. Day number one, the goal is to blow their minds, get them where like, "Man, if this is all I got this was still worth it." That's the first thing we want people thinking. And then also is helping them understand that there's a vision bigger than you. So you've ever noticed that Funnel Hacking Live day number one, we always have some kind of charity component where they're watching me give money to charity. And then also we're asking them to give money to charity because it helps train people on how does the room work if you're going to give somebody money, where do you go? Like where's the back of the room, where's the table? But also it shows that me and Todd, who are the ones who run this company, run the event like that. That we don't just say this stuff. We practice what we preach. We're donating money. We're giving money. In fact, you'll notice, we'll talk about this later, but on day four, whatever money people give to the Save a Child Challenge, we matched it. We're trying to show that like, "Hey, we also are doing these things too. I'm not asking you to anything that we're not willing to do as well." And so it all kind of starts with that day number one is blowing their minds, making them see that you're doing the same things you're asking them to do and just giving them a really good experience. And that's kind of how the very beginning of Funnel Hacking Live went this year, 2021. So those who were there, if you enjoyed it, please, take a picture of this podcast episode and tag me in it and let me know what your biggest favorite thing was from day number one, there's so many cool speakers, so many cool things. For me, my favorite thing I think was my last presentation, when I did the virtual real estate presentation, I can just feel the energy was perfect. And everyone was so excited. That and also the Initial Launch 2.0. I did the whole teasing thing and everyone's energy dropped. It was still cool to be able to finally talk about this thing that we've been talking about for so long. We were so excited to share with the world. So anyway, there's day number one at Funnel Hacking Live.
