2009 Mega Agent Program - Inspiring Music and Story of Tommy Emmanuel

If you haven't seen any of the guest speakers at a Mega Agent Camp, you are really missing out.  These strong and passionate individuals will provoke thought and pull at both your heart and your mind.  After listening to these speakers, there is but one single conclusion - "The only thing holding you back is you."

Meet Tommy EmmanuelTommy Emmanuel

Tommy Emmanuel is a two-time Grammy nominee with a music career that spans almost four decades.  At age 4, he learned to play the guitar without any formal training.  By age 6, he was a professional musician touring his native Australia.  Since then, he has toured the world entertaining crowds with his distinct musical style and sound.  Not bad - considering he never learned how to read music.

Just Do It - Start Today

Tommy Emmanuel entertained the crowd with his music.  However, one comment resonated with me.  He commented on questions often received from parents as to how to get their child started in the music world.  His advice was simple - play and practice.  He also stressed the importance of challenging yourself and developing your own style.  However, he commented further.  He explained that you can't expect to pick up a guitar and play like him when it took him over thirty years to perfect his craft.  From his comments, I took away three tips:

  • Set reasonable expectations.
  • Practice your skills.
  • Challenge yourself by expanding your abilities.

You simply can't say I want to play like him.  You have to practice and build your skills.  Sometimes, it is important to think big but start small.

Tom - We are worst enemies.  I don't know too many agents who aren't driven by healthy competition.  If they aren't competitive by nature, then sales may be the wrong business.

Rita - You summarized his comments very well.  There aren't short cuts.  I doubt know about the other agents who attended.  However, I can say unequivocably that there were some great motivational speakers.  Although there was a fair number of presentation on the KW philosophy, these motivational speakers were worth the price of admission alone.

Ryan, I love to read and listen to successful real life stories, they all pretty much have one thing in common, they don't count on luck.  They work very hard, very consistent, not afraid of any challenges, or fails sometimes.  They get back up real quick and move on.

Janice - You are absolutely right.  Fear of the unknown and the desire for perfection can paralyze people.  Sometimes you just need to get out there and do it.  I hope things are well in Philadelphia.

Debbie:  The best place is my AR outside blog www.LafayetteReport.com.  I enjoyed the Keller Williams experience at MegaCamp and I'm not even a KW agent.  However, if my path changes, they are on the top of the list to consider.  MegaAgent is a great program which only reinforced what I have seen of KW agents on ActiveRain and what I know about my colleagues at the KW-Kirkwood Office in St. Louis.
