MAKE IT HAPPEN BLUEPRINT
18 High-Performance Practices to Crush It in Life and Business
by Michelle McCullough
This year’s focus for the Individual Development (ID) Program is Michelle McCullough’s book “Make It Happen Blueprint – 18 High-performance Practices to Crush it in Life and Business.” Here is some information about Michelle from her bio at http://speakmichelle.com/: “Michelle started her first business when she was 19 and currently runs 3 companies including consulting businesses all over the world. A seasoned speaker and former corporate sales trainer, Michelle teaches success principles and leadership insights that help boost employee engagement and higher performance. In addition to running her own consulting businesses, Michelle is the managing director for Startup Princess, listed by Forbes as “One of the top 10 resources for Women Entrepreneurs”. She’s worked with top brands like Visa Small Business, UPS Store, AWeber and more. She’s spoken for the Air Force Reserve, Goldman Sachs and Ancestry.com, among others. She’s been featured in entrepreneur.com, in the 40 under 40, on Fox TV, and has been interviewed for television and radio over 100 times, including Good Morning America and The Today Show. She was recently named in the Top 100 Small Business Influencers by Inc Magazine. Her own radio show “Make It Happen” has over 1 million downloads.”
In the forward to the book, bestselling author Richie Norton wrote, “As Michelle shares her own stories of triumphs and trials, it becomes clear that success is as much about practice as anything. Success can, in fact, be learned, and it often takes effort to get it right. As Michelle outlines the patterns of high performers, you can feel a sense of excitement building as you come to realize success is within your reach. Successful people are just like you, me, and everybody else. They have wins and losses, but at the end of the day they’ve learned the habits and skills to keep moving, minimize failures, and ultimately set themselves up to reach their goals.”
We all have goals, but most of us encounter obstacles along the way to reaching them. We sometimes get in our own way. As we read the “Make It Happen Blueprint” this year in the ID program, we will learn the skills and habits necessary to make achieving our goals a reality. I hope you’ll join me in reading the book this year. If you attend Fall Board, you will be able to purchase a signed copy there, or you can order it now from Amazon at the link below. Then, join me for three all-day seminars where we will put some of the suggestions in the book into practice. Dates for the seminars are November 4th, February 3rd, and April 28th. Michelle will join us in April for our final meeting, and I know you will enjoy hearing her speak.
