Join me *this week only* for a special challenge...
From Tuesday through Sunday, we are going #BEASTMODE. Will you accept the challenge? Let me know by replying to this email or commenting below...
Yes, I’m emailing you on Labor Day.
And if you’re reading this email anytime before 9am Tuesday in your time zone, then you’re probably not taking the day off either.
Starting tomorrow, we officially kickoff this week’s #BEASTMODE challenge, which will go from Tuesday until Sunday. Will you join us?
Maybe this sounds somewhat childish, or perhaps this isn’t what you subscribed to my newsletter for.
But maybe, just maybe, you’re ready for a challenge (like me!).
You see, my executive coach and I speak regularly about the concept of #BEASTMODE, which for me is the embodiment of putting in the work, aggressively pursing new opportunities, and handling any obstacle the day throws at me.
More popular aficionados of #BEASTMODE include former Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author David Goggins, UFC superstar Conor McGregor, and SPANX founder Sara Blakley (who bootstrapped a multi-billion dollar company and become the youngest self-made female billionaire in 2012).
But this week, I’m going #BEASTMODE, and you are invited to join me and other subscribers throughout the week by replying to this email or commenting below.
What is a bold kick-in-the-ass you can give your body, your business, or your brain?
I’ll be waking up early, running far (i.e. between 6 and 13 miles daily), squeezing in a few afternoon workouts as well, and dialing in on important presentations, sales campaigns, and other projects I’ve been putting to the side.
Anything that you’ve felt lethargic about, or want to drastically improve on, can be your focus for the next five days.
Personally, I’ve eaten wayyyy too much the last three or four days, so starting with my workouts and diet is an important component to activating #BEASTMODE.
I’ve also ignored finalizing sales decks and pitches that could net tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars in profit for our business, and so I’m going to lean into any discomfort or anxiety I’ve felt towards those projects and work on them NOW.
Why #BEASTMODE this week in particular?
Join us by emailing me your #BEASTMODE updates and accomplishments this week, and we will give you and your business special shout-outs in a recap email next Monday!
If you’re not accepting this challenge, that’s cool too :).
Enjoy sleeping in, relax this Labor Day, and we will be back to our regularly scheduled programming on Wednesday.
