On April 30, I’m putting on a special event in Austin, Texas, called “Start Night.”
This intensely fun event is designed to help you learn how to punch fear in the face, escape average and do work that matters.
But maybe you’re not supposed to be there.
That’s OK. It’s not for everyone, but before you decide whether to sign up before it sells out, just make sure you’re not one of these people:
1. A college senior who doesn’t want to waste a single day at the wrong job when they graduate.
2. A stay-at-home mom who’s had a dream for a few years and needs a push over the edge to start it.
3. A 27-year-old guy who knows exactly what his dream is but doesn’t know where to start.
4. A 27-year-old guy who doesn’t have a clue what his dream is but knows he’s not doing it right now and wants to figure it out.
5. A 42-year-old woman who spent 20 years working for someone else and is curious what it would be like to work for herself.
6. The dad who has a thousand good ideas but doesn’t know which one to actually focus on.
7. A recent college graduate who keeps getting told this is the worst economy to find a job in, but knows this might be the best economy to chase a dream in.
8. A discouraged guy who wants to meet 300 people who believe in his dream.
9. A retired steel worker who has dreamed for decades about something different and now suddenly has the time to do it.
10. A lawyer who became a lawyer because everyone told her she would be an amazing lawyer and now she’s not so sure that she wants to be a lawyer.
11. A customer call center representative that loves helping people at work but also wants to help people in Uganda without quitting her job.
12. A 45-year-old woman who has been running from a dream for years, but the dream refuses to keep quiet and it’s time to really try it.
13. A young girl who started a non-profit 6 months ago and needs help figuring out how to harness all the creative ideas she has.
14. The son that was told by his parents that his dream “would never work.”
15. The 25-year-old who refuses to accept that “being an adult” means being miserable at work for 40 hours a week.
16. The cynic who would never attend one of these things and thinks this list is kind of dumb, but there’s a money back guarantee so if he doesn’t love it at least he didn’t spend a dollar.
17. The husband with a wife who has always believed in him more than he’s believed in himself.
18. The 62-year-old who refuses to believe fear when it lies and says “it’s too late to dream.”
19. The high school student who isn’t going to wait for permission or the “right age” to dream.
20. The youth pastor who has a new dream that might take him new places.
21. The executive who knows that even people who don’t paint or play the guitar can chase a dream. Dreams aren’t just for musicians and artists.
22. The California resident who knows it’s not easy to get to Nashville, but if chasing a dream was easy everyone would be doing it.
23. The person who didn’t fit a single description on this list but is coming to the conference anyway.
If that’s you, sign up today. The last one sold out, and I don’t want you to miss this experience if you’re supposed to be there. (The early bird ticket is only $39 and includes a free copy of my new book Start.)
If that’s not you, that’s cool too. You’ve got somewhere important you’re supposed to be instead on April 30. I hope you have an amazing night wherever you are.
I’ll see 23 of you (and a whole lot of other people) in Austin, Texas soon!
