RALEIGH, N.C. – Can you feel it? There’s a beat in the distance, but it’s getting louder. It’s not as faint as it was a little while ago. What is it? It’s distinct and it’s growing faster and more intense.
Boom … Thunder? Crack … Lightning? Pow … It’s so intense that it’s hard to distingush the source.
You know that feeling that athletes get before a huge game on a national stage? It’s like that.
You’ve heard Rock Stars speak of the calm before they hit the stage and the rush that follows? That’s what I’m talking about!
I hope you didn’t just say, “Naw, Andy. I don’t know ‘whut’ you mean?” If you did, my response is easy: “Are you crazy?”
If you were nodding your head, smiling, clenching your fist or even heading out the door for Raleigh, N.C., then you are who I want to talk to!!!
You know what I’m talking about: National Agents Alliance’s “Be Your Own Rock Star” Leadership Conference!!! I can’t even sleep because I’m so fired up about what is going to happen for the next three days … It’s going to rock, it’s going to shake your foundation and you are going to be transformed in ways you never imagined.
Guys, think about what is planned for you!!! And, make no mistake, this is for you!!!
I’ve been working the phones all week with media requests, signing off on final plans and just getting my mind right for what is going to be the “rendez in Raleigh.” When I say, “rendez” I mean RENDEZVOUS as in it’s your destination, like why the heck wouldn’t you be here???
We’ve got The Pursuit of Happyness’ Chris Gardner, we’ve got N.C. State’s Benny Suggs (a Navy Admiral and my new buddy), Tax-Free Retirement author Patrick Kelly, N.C. Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin, The Goads (Tim, Gaye, Blake and BreAnn) and Jane Albright (my favorite!). I feel like I’m leaving out so many others!!! It’s going to jam packed.
They are probably going to have to call the fire marshal in to make sure it’s still safe and one of you might have to leave. I’ve told event officials that I’m not happy about that and I’m not. You better make sure you get there early. We are going to have wall-to-wall coverage of this deal at the Raleigh Convention Center.
It’s going to be record setting and I can assure you of that because I’ve seen some where ticket sales are and our team has projected where that final number will be and it might be overwhelming to have that much energy in the center when it all unfolds on Friday when we kick things off!
Gosh, I just hope you have planned accordingly. I hope you have your ticket, your room, your notepad and tape recorder, a camera, an open mind and I hope, for your sake, that you got plenty of rest.
It’s going to be electric. We’ve been telling you about it and now it’s here. Tune up the instruments, cue the lights … it’s time to take center stage and understand what it means to “Be Your Own Rock Star!”
Get ready guys, the wait is over. It’s time to shine. There’s no better place and there’s no better time. I’m ready to rock, are you ready to roll?
SHICKYBOOM, SHICKYBOOM, SHICKYBOOM!!!
