No More “Starving Artists”, Today Even the Creative Can Succeed in the World of Business and Entrepreneurship
The greats are known for their accomplishments, their willingness to help others, and their ability to disrupt industries while doing good and collaborating with others like them sharing known strategies for ensuring success.
Can you name one of the greats that hasn’t had amazing accomplishments?
No, of course not.
Can you think of any of the greats that didn’t change the way something was done?
They are all game changers.
The true greats, however, aren’t content with just changing the world—they share their successes so others like them can advance.
As an example of what I’m talking about, I want to tell you about Roddy Chong, an Asian-American violinist with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra who is known for his high-energy performances. Just as I am the best salesman on the planet, Roddy is the best violinist on the planet. He’s toured with Shania Twain and Celine Dion at the same time. He has performed for the President of the United States, the Queen of England, the Pope, and Oprah. Roddy is in the pursuit for accelerated life performance, purpose, and a mission to help others push the boundaries of potential.
Roddy truly had to beat the odds because typical rock bands or country music acts weren’t posting jobs for violin players. He kept pushing and found that his unique presence was, in fact, a selling point. Getting bands to allow him to audition required perseverance—constant communication to let them know he was passionate about the project—and a dedication to mastery. Roddy knew that when he played the violin, it had to be the only performance they would remember.
“Who would have thought of a Chinese man in a country music band?” — Roddy Chong
As Roddy’s music career progressed, so did opportunities for him to share the lessons he had learned along the way. He not only found himself performing on stages with legendary musicians and in front of international audiences, but he also became a sought-after speaker. His high-energy performance style, scrappy “job-seeking” abilities, and straightforward “show them that you want it” attitude that won him favor in the music industry soon caught the attention of corporate America.
Roddy has the ability to share his knowledge with people who may be facing their own hurdles, performance anxieties, or misguided perceptions about true potential. By intertwining artistic abilities, creativity, and a passionate attitude with the intellect, Roddy has solidified a speaking experience that has never been witnessed before.
“Look around at your career and your life. That’s your audience. Your boss, your coworkers, your friends, and family. They have expectations. But meeting expectations won’t generate massive applause. We need to play bigger.” — Roddy Chong
Realizing that he had discovered a new purpose in his career, Roddy welcomed the challenge of revamping his life so he could help others make the most of theirs. Still touring occasionally with various bands such as Trans-Siberian Orchestra, he’s taking time out of his busy schedule to bring the house down at 10XGrowthCon in Miami this March.
I want you to be here to hear him along with other super successful people that are not just changing the way things are being done, they are sharing their successes so you can make advances in your life. We all want to be more successful—and we all need to network with the best of the best and get the strategies they’ve used to make it big.
Would you join Roddy and I at 10XGrowthCon?
Tickets are going fast. I’ll be doing no-holds-barred Q&A’s with guys like Shark Tank’s Daymond John, Kevin Harrington, and top-level strategist Jay Abraham. There’s going to be ballers, there’s going to be charisma, there’s going to be mega entrepreneurs in attendance that you want to connect with. The question is, will you be there?
