Exactly two days before I left for my 25-day India trip last March, I attended the Wealth Summit at PICC. The summit ran for two days, plus one bonus day (which sadly, I wasn't able to attend because I had to chase after a dream). The topics were varied and inspiring. Some topics confirmed the things I already know. But I learned many new things, too. The summit, somehow, also validated that I am on the right path.
And being on the right path only means that I have to be relentless and unwavering in my commitment to make my shoe business succeed and prosper. To be steadfast in my belief that the real Shoemaker handcrafted a pair of shoes only for me, that I have to fill.
Speaking of shoe business, I met this awesome businessman who runs many successful businesses -- his name is Marco.
I decided to meet Marco after his talk. I introduced myself, shook his hand, and told him: "You don't make the best shoes. I do!" He laughed and said: "I'm sorry, did I offend you?" He sounded really apologetic, I had to assure him that he didn't. I told him, I was, in fact, really inspired by his story.
And this I must say, I really admire Marco's humility. I didn't feel any tinge of competition in his voice. Instead, he was helpful and even wished me success. He and I have become friends (we are FB and IG friends now). And he thinks (yes, he does!) that I make beautiful shoes!
Everyone who stood on that stage inspired me a lot. In between speakers, I daydreamed that one day, it would be wonderful to be up there, too, and share my story.
Bo also gave talks during the summit. In one of them, he shared his Five Biggest Mistakes, which I learned a lot from.
The summit ended with Bo leading the prayer. He encouraged us to pray for the people seated beside us. It was such a beautiful, powerful moment. I felt incredibly blessed to be there.
Whoever you are and wherever you are in your life right now, I encourage you to attend the next Wealth Summit. It is life-changing. It changed mine.
