Anyone who knows about me also knows that I used Robert Kiyosaki’s Cashflow 101 board game to build my business. It is probably the best networking tool I’ve found that brings likeminded individuals together. Black Friday is the anniversary of the first time my wife Popi and I played the game for the first time. That’s why every year on Black Friday we host a game. Every year the number of people who participate grows. We are truly grateful that so many people are interested in learning the game and playing the game with us. This year we’re doing it a little differently. Because I am so very thankful for everything that the game has brought into my life and the lives of my loved ones, I’m hosting a huge, live game in Orange County this Black Friday that officially starts at 11 a.m., PST, and goes for about three hours. But that’s not all. We are LIVE STREAMING the event so no matter where you are in the world you can participate by learning how to run your own games! Just be there on time and that’s it. Our chat room will be open for the entire event so you can ask questions and get them answered in real time. Be sure to sign up to receive the log in information and reminder. We don’t want you to miss it. Listen in and learn how to sign up. Of course, this is not all that this episode covers. There’s lots of things I’m grateful for and you’ll want to hear more about my journey. There are some things I’ve never shared before. Learn more. Listen Now

- We often doubt and ask ourselves, ‘Is the chance that we’re taking worth it?’

The Process of Do:

- 3) Do alone – take the training wheels off
- 4) Teach another – influence others with what you know
