I asked myself this question again a couple of weeks ago as well. My answer, "I will ask for what I want, when I want it." I won't procrastinate, fear rejection, obsess or over think it. I will simply ask, when I have the urge.
I decided to begin doing a series of interviews here on Wednesdays. I emailed five successful bloggers and asked if I could interview them. I received 3 positive responses immediately. Not bad, eh?
A couple of weeks ago days ago I discovered a link to "The World's Biggest Summit." It is the brain child of Goddess Leonie.The summit is free, you only have to sign up, listen, and be inspired by brilliant and amazing women.
As I scanned the photos of the speakers I was thinking…I can do this. I'm this good. I want to do this!
Then I see one sentence that got me going…"Stay tuned to see what amazing new speaker we announce next!"
I decided it would be me! I would be one of the next speakers they announce.
I only had to ask first.
I immediately sent out the following email:
Subject: Worlds Biggest Summit
I’m Tess Marshall from The Bold Life and I just signed up to attend the worlds biggest summit. You have a question in the copy that states, “Which will be the next amazing teach to be announced next?
I would like to suggest it’s me!
I don't know if there is an application to apply or how to proceed so I decided to be BOLD and ask. I've included a video of me speaking.
I've recently had guest posts on Good Life Zen and Zen Habits. I have a book, Flying By the Seat of My Soul, and my free eBook which says it all in 17 pages, Peace, Love, and Connection. I also have a masters degree in Counseling Psychology and worked in private practice for over 12 years.
Let me know if you're interested in adding me to your awesome roster. Either way I'll be there with bells on and promote you to my large list of growing subscribers.
I received this email back:
Hola Tess! ~
We've been really blessed to have so many bright lights respond to this idea, and all of the teacher spots are currently filled. But we are putting your name on the teacher waitlist, in case anyone's schedule falls through and a spot opens up! If that happens, we will be in touch.
Thank you again SO much!
Love + Light,
Then a few days later:
Hola gorgeous soul,
We have a couple more spaces available for teachers for the World's Biggest Summit.
If you are in, please give a mighty YES!
and I will say HURRAH! and dance around in a circle.
And then pop you up on the site ASAP.
