Just Got Off Stage? Why Congratulations Are In Order

Shawn Byfield leading host speaker and coach

Super Congratulations! You Did It!

Ok… So what did you do exactly?

Here’s what you did: You showed up. You got on stage and shared your passion. You should be extremely proud of yourself! Why?

Because sometimes, those nerves suck.

But look- despite being nervous, you did it! You got up there despite feeling shaky, worried, palms & armpits sweating, thinking you might forget something. I get that. Totally normal.

 But Did You Know?

Did you know being on stage is a really big deal?

Did you know that many people are afraid to just speak in front of their best friends? Or afraid to make a toast? Or get up and talk in front of a group in general?

Meanwhile here YOU are, in front of a crowd of a FEW HUNDRED people you’ve never met, being vulnerable, DANCING, sharing something so personal that means the world to you.

I’m so proud! You got up there and showed the world your bravery.


Don’t ever forget that. Remind yourself every day when you wake up and before going to bed. It will make a difference in your life, I guarantee it.

Now Here’s Where We Get Deep:

You have a gift. You absolutely, truly do.

And your gift can make a difference. Want some even better news? Everyone around you has a gift, too. I challenge you to use your gift to inspire others to get on the same stage as you.

Part of your purpose is to SHARE that gift with as many people as possible. Yes sometimes that’s scary…

…BUT! What if you could brighten someone else’s day by sharing what YOU love?

How Would That Make You Feel?

Sometimes, it takes Someone Special Like You to inspire a friend to share THEIR gifts. Because who knows…

…One day they may turn to you and say, “Because of you, I CAN. Because of you, I AM BRAVE. And because you YOU, I can’t wait to do more! Thank you for allowing me to be ME.”

Congrats to you. Keep being brave, because you’re making a difference.

It’s true, we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But here’s a secret… People do!

Look the part. If you want people to take you seriously, then a good place to start is by taking yourself seriously.

Make sure your outer world is an accurate reflection of your inner world.

You won’t fly with eagles when you’re dressed like a turkey!

#1 Lesson Haters Gonna Learn From Britney Spears


Does it pay to be crazy? Here’s #Motivation:

Britney Spears has actually only been in the pop business for a few years. Her first album came out in 1999.

To date she’s sold over 100 MILLION albums worldwide. Forbes Magazine recently recognized her as the highest paid female recording artist, $58M, in 2012.


Haters Gon’ Hate

Here’s the lesson. Pay attention haters…

Because while you were judging, she earned residual/royalty income while she slept. Royalty income is where you get paid month after month, year after year, for work that you did ONCE.

Hit me baby one more time!
– Said her bank account in Zurich

When she got married in Vegas, she got paid. While making babies with K-Fed, she got paid. And when she went all circus on us and cut her hair, you guessed it… Cha-ching!


How will YOUR next 15 years look? What plan do you have in place to earn residual income? If you don’t have one, don’t hate on her success. I have a few growing as I write this. It’s not Brit Brit money, but it does mean in 15 years I’ll never have to work again for the rest of my life (if I choose not to.)

More importantly…

…I’m excited of all the ways I’ll be able to make a difference in my community, including charity donations, scholarships, retiring my mother, educational and program funding, and so much more.

You don’t need pop star talent to get paid like one. But in order to make the royalties, you have to do the WORK.

I have a few solid ideas I need help with, so if you’re interested in being Spears crazy or just want to learn more about residual income, EMAIL me today.

Well? Hit me up baby!

“Tim Hortons Just Tastes Better” – Said The Burger King


Time for a coffee break. If you haven’t heard, Burger King is merging with Tim Hortons, and moving their new head office to Canada. This’ll make Timmy’s the double-double king & BK the 3rd largest fast food company on EARTH.

Yes, a Canadian company will be the third biggest on the planet, Eh!

Currently, the top ten biggest fast food companies are all American. Do some research on the story for yourself.

A Whopper Of A Lesson?

Immediately I see a handful of valuable gems, shiny pearls of wisdom. Wrap your buns around these:

  1. Get educated on franchise models, and understand the economic concept of leverage. Clearly the strategy works, successful businesses apply it daily. We could all learn a thing or two.
  2. Stop hating on your self employed, entrepreneur, independent business friends who own a franchise, because they work hard, deserve your support and your buck. Stop supporting big corporations when your buddy with the same product, service or in the same industry is just steps away and would love to help.
  3. Plus, if they do it well it’s a payday that not only supports their family, but most often gives YOU more time, saves YOU money, reduces YOUR stress, or all the above. And, supporting your buddy boosts our country’s economy because in a time when big biz is downsizing, small businesses are expanding and spending.
  4. Discover ways to expand outside your local marketplace. Because there just might be a bigger or more delicious opportunity for you elsewhere if you just peek outside your box.
  5. Canadians have guts. Sometimes they’re deeper inside because of the wind chill, but we still have ’em up there somewhere.
  6. Tim Horton started with ONE doughnut shop. And because he understood lesson number one above, in three years he turned his shop into a multi-million dollar franchise system. Fast forward 50 years later and surprise- one of the largest fast food companies on the planet.

BKChew on that for a minute.

And points for you if you got the double meaning in this post’s title. 😉

I hope you found this useful! Are you a business owner? Thinking of starting one? Do you own a franchise? Share below or tweet me, I’m curious to read your thoughts.
