And in all reality – isn’t that the fear behind a lot of what we do or don’t do? The fact that if we put ourselves out there (in whatever form), that people will SEE us? Being seen can be terrifying, especially if we’re baring our souls as we are putting our work out there in the world. Something that is truly, uniquely, 100% ours. For me, especially when it’s something I’ve never done before, my stomach ties up in knots just thinking about it. So today, I’m powering through the tummy-ache and seeing what waits on the other side.
Back to the idea I had.
When we were doing events earlier this year, I was high on life. People were having a blast, learning a ton, there were high fives all around, and in general – we were killin’ it. It really was awesome. But there was something inside of me that was dreaming bigger. What would happen if EVERYONE everywhere had a chance to feel like that at a skydiving event? Sure, there’s something to be said for a certain combination of coaches and participants and particular DZs. But who’s to say that it had to be limited to one DZ at a time, 15-25 jumpers at a time? I wanted to reach more people. How could I do that?
I had originally intended to take the events we were putting together on tour around the country (and totally open to international opportunities as well). That was the plan. But even still, that’s one DZ at a time. I wanted to help more people, faster.
I’m not standing up on some pedestal saying YOU ALL NEED FIXING. I am down here on the ground, a resource for anyone who needs a hand, and together we can change the way the skydiving industry approaches events. I’ll show you how to approach events like a professional event planner.
So I put together How to Plan a Skydiving Event. I am literally pouring all of my knowledge into this guide, because I know the methods work. I want everyone to be able to have the tools (and tools = confidence) to put on the most epic skydiving event of all time.
Starting today, I’m offering a sneak peek at the guide before it is released. You can get your sneak peek by clicking here. There’s a lot of info on the website, and the sneak peek dives into the content of the book deeper before I release it on August 3rd. Go check it out. Let me know what you think.
