You are not aware that I usually compose up to one month of posts at a time to insure clarity of vision and continuity. Those things in life worth pursuing always involve steps. Consider that steps, just like literal stair-steps, are not independent of each other: they must be connected!
Since my last composing, I have had the fantastic experience of Workamper Rendezvous. This was our very first event held here in Heber Springs, Arkansas, the home of Workamper News. It had been a previous dream of founders Greg & Debbie Robus that never came to fruition during their years of owning and running Workamper News. Since Kathy Jo and I took over the reins at Workamper News, it has been our dream as well. Now, that the “first ever” is in the record books, it is just the beginning for future events.
The success of the Workamper Rendezvous is a perfect illustration of the Six Steps of Turning your Desire into Reality that I covered in the last six posts. I’ll review them for you in their application for this event.
First of all, I fixed in my mind and started to visualize what the event would be like.
Second, I developed a game plan of how we would put on the event and what we would offer the attendees to the very first event.
Third, the date was set for the first-ever Workamper Rendezvous.
Fourth, the wheels of organization were put into motion by getting a number of people on board with the plan and open to making this event a great success.
Fifth, an exact plan, in this case, a schedule of seminars, activities and everything else for the event was weighed for the benefit it would provide each attendee. Each element of the plan was written down and acted upon.
Sixth, over the period of nine months of promotion, I personally reviewed my plan and the outcome that I visualized for the Workamper Rendezvous and each attendee.
Finally, the first-ever Workamper Rendezvous was held April 26 – 28, 2011, right here in Heber Springs, AR. The nearly 200 attendees gave glowing reviews and declared it a success. Many said they were sad to see it come to an end and wanted to know when the reunion experience would be planned!
You also can bring your Desire to Reality. Bear in mind, you did not read that I said it was easy. Desires that are worthwhile take effort on our part, and a willingness to continue believing and visualizing the end result.
Nearly 50% of the attendees at the Workamper Rendezvous were Dreamers, just like you. They have not yet taken that leap into the active Workamping lifestyle. After attending this event, the majority of them shared that they believe even more in their dream and can visualize living the lifestyle. I have no doubt that many of the Dreamers will be advancing into the lifestyle sooner than planned and with more confidence in their ability to live the dream of Seeing America One Job at a Time!.
The next Workamper Rendezvous, which will be an encore performance of the first one, with the same seminar presenters and activities will be held here in Heber Springs on October 18 – 20, 2011 with a Bonus day on Friday, October 21st. You can learn more about this opportunity and register to attend by clicking here.
We are limited to 225 seats for this event, and I have no doubt they will be filled quickly. You will want to act fast to make sure you have the opportunity to attend this Dream-building experience.
Until next time…
P.S. I almost forgot. We are scheduling Workamper Rendezvous II (the reunion) for April of 2012, with new seminars and activities. I believe it will be even greater than the first one! I believe it, so I can see it!
