They READ a lot... especially books.
In fact, when I first discovered "Planet Dan"way back in 1995 the first thing that I didwhen I figured out that this Direct Responsestuff really works is to become a veraciousreader. I first began with the classics likeJohn Caples, Robert Collier, David Ogilvy,Gary Halbert and of course everythingDan Kennedy wrote.Back then I got into a habit of reading abook a week and I've kept up with two amonth even though my schedule has become much busier. For example,as I write this I have this stack of books on my desk:
Meatball Sundae by Seth Godin
The GO-GIVER by Bob Burg and John David Mann
The True Beleiver by Eric Hoffer
Earl Nightingale's Greatest Discoveries by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
Trump Style Negotiation by George Ross
The Patterson Principles of Selling by Jeffrey Gitomer
Ready Fire Aim by Michael Masterson
As you can see, I keep the topics somewhat diverse and many of thebooks are ones that members send me. They're not all about smallbusiness marketing and advertising. But I don't want you to miss thepoint I'm making here. This is not a habit that is specific to me. It's ahabit that I have identified as common to the Most Successful Entrepre-neurs I work with.
HABIT #2: They continue to work on their EDUCATIONin live settings.
After all, how did we originallylearn? We went to school and satin a classroom. It's always amaz-ing to me how many people stopworking on their education afterthey get out of school.It should not surprise you thatthose Members who attend ourlive events and participate in our coaching programs are much moresuccessful than those who do not. I'm not saying this because I'm tryingto promote GKIC. This is true of every event I have ever attended. It'sbecause people who continue to go to school, whether it's school at alive event, webinar, tele-seminar, or mastermind meeting, work ontheir continuing education.And of course the live events and mastermind groups are the best con-tinuing education because you not only can learn from the presenter orleader, but also from all of the other smart people in the room. Onceagain, I hope you don't take this a self serving, but I know of millions
