This is my second time with the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA). Last year I created a very detailed DMP that, over time, I came not to believe in. I did not finish the course.
I have been associated with multiple network marketing programs over the last four years. In every case they stressed find your “why.” The sponsors had great examples of whys. Things like pay for their kids college education, pay off their mortgage, fire their boss, etc.
None of these things resonated with me so I never worked any of those opportunities seriously. My excuse was “I don’t have a why.”
This year, the class started when I was out of town at the week long Salesforce.com Dreamforce conference. It was a very busy week!
During the week a number of events showed me my why:
- Tuesday during a keynote speech by Marc Benioff he highlighted PepUp Tech, an organization that gives motivated, underserved students the access, skills, mentors, and confidence needed to begin careers in tech and help diversify the industry. I was highly moved.
- That afternoon, while touring the Trailblazer hall, I happened to look over a hedge (it’s all decked out like a park) and I saw a group of kids in a classroom setting learning about Salesforce.
- Wednesday at a gathering to support Wigs for Kids I met a woman who is also in the business of supporting education.
At each of these moments I teared up.
When I told my girlfriend about this I cried out loud because I was so moved.
I have found my “why.” I want to help education. This could be financially or by volunteering. Now I can write a meaningful DMP.
