Welcome to the Marketing Secrets podcast. Today I need to share with you guys something very powerful from my friend, she’s not really my friend yet, but someday I hope so, but her name is Harriet Tubman. Some of you guys may know her and her story. I was just looking at a picture on my wall and she is in it. And there’s something really cool I learned from her this weekend that I want to share with you guys. Alright everybody, welcome back. And yes I am still going to give you all the podcasts, I promise. Do not worry. I will be getting to those, I just gotta do a little more prep on them. But I wanted to share something that I heard at church this week, it was so, so powerful. A lot of you guys know how heavily involved we are with an organization called Operation Underground Railroad, which is an organization that helps save children from sex slavery. And what’s interesting as I’ve been getting deeper and deeper in this organization and helping them, Tim Ballard, who is the man who started the thing, he’s written 5 or 6 books on ancient American history, not ancient, but American history. And I asked him, I was like, “Why are you so obsessed with this?” and he’s like, “You know, when we were trying to start this thing, no one had ever done it before. CIA asked us to go help these children, so we tried to help these children from slavery. We didn’t have a blueprint or a game plan, we had to figure these things out. So I started looking at, who has done the closest thing to what we’re trying to do? And it was the early abolitionists who were trying to free the slaves, that’s the people we studied.” So there’s a picture on my wall, it’s amazing. It’s got this railroad down the middle and Tim is walking, holding a child and he’s walking towards it, towards me looking at the picture. And then on the left hand side there’s all the early abolitionists. You see Harriet Tubman, you see George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, you see all these amazing people that were the early abolitionists. And then on the right hand side you see all the modern abolitionists, all these amazing people that have been part of the OUR mission. Anyway, I have it framed on my desk here in the office, it’s one of my favorite pictures. But on the left hand side there’s Harriet Tubman. And at church on Sunday, somebody was talking about her and about slavery and stuff like that and shared a quote that was so cool. And this is the quote she said. She said, “I freed a thousand slaves, but I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew that they were slaves.” Let me read that again. “I freed a thousand slaves, but I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew that they were slaves.” So why did I want to share that with you guys? Well, number one how powerful is that on so many different levels? You know for me, it’s been interesting, when I first started learning about this whole business, direct response, internet marketing, and the fact that you can sell information and you can, all these things that I talk about with you guys all the time now. When I first learned all those things, I remember how freeing it was for me. I was like, oh my gosh I don’t have to be a wrestling coach. Not that I don’t want to be, I want to be a wrestling coach, but I don’t have to be a wrestling coach making whatever wrestling coaches make
