EXERCISE: List Out Your Personal Connections
- Download the worksheet and begin adding individual names. Many artists say that focusing for 30 minutes at a time helps them break up this task into several manageable time slots.
- Don’t estimate. Write each name down. It’s tempting to wing it, but those who’ve succeeded wildly have taken this step seriously and had a comprehensive list of their Inner and Intermediate Circles by the time they launched.
- You need this list in order to launch! In module six you’ll learn how to systematically contact everyone on your list up to three times via email, phone, or in person communication during your campaign.
- Get started now!
- Make an attempt right this minute to begin making this list. It’ll start the domino effect in your brain that will naturally cause you to continuously think of other names while you’re working on the rest of your campaign.
