Sign Up For My 30 Days To A Happier Ever After

 

Kelly Swanson’s Wild and Wacky Journey to a Happier Ever After

What’s it all about? Let me tell you…

So How Did It Happen?

Well, like most things in this business of being a motivational speaker, I didn’t go after it, it came after me. I was just out there doing my thing -encouraging the world and making people laugh – and doing everything I can to let people know I’m here.

And I get an email from the founder of Placebo Effect. I’ll explain what that is in a minute.

But the point is that he wanted me to put together a thirty-day program to help people bring happiness back into their lives. And the beautiful thing is that he was going to let me do it MY WAY.  (My two favorite words.)

I was hesitant at first, and Barb (my inner critic) told me I didn’t have time, it probably wouldn’t make me any money, and that perhaps this guy was all fluff.

Not in my head – but in my heart.

I had this feeling that even if this didn’t “pay off” – I would be helping people do what I was called to do – find happiness.

And I just don’t believe you can put a price tag on giving people hope.

So I said yes.

It took a tremendous amount of work, fast deadlines, and jumping into a pool that I had never swam in before, and I’m not sure I was wearing the right bathing suit.

But I’m no stranger to change, and I know this is exactly what it feels like when you come out of your comfort zone.

There are no guarantees and no road maps. You just feel your way – one day at a time.

What Is The Placebo Effect? How can Placebos possibly do anything for … me?

When I first heard of it, I said “Placebo Effect” what in the heck is that?  Well, to borrow their words, here is what it is…

Researchers at Harvard and other prestigious universities discovered that people don’t have to be deceived to experience a placebo effect… nor do they need to take little sugar pills. Instead, the placebo effect requires just three ingredients to help people feel happier, focus better, lose more weight, heal faster, and so on.

• Positive Belief
• Social Support
• Daily Rituals

The Placebo Challenge

We’ve worked with researchers at UCSD, Harvard, and top institutes to develop a simple formula for success:

Step 1: Choose a Prescription

We offer four 30-day prescriptions in which to harness the placebo effect:

Happiness, Focus, Life Purpose, or Weight loss.

Step 2: Watch a Daily Placebo

For 30 days, watch daily ONE MINUTE insightful videos that inspire you to achieve your goal- we call them PLACEBOS.

Step 3: Share Your Progress

Each day, after watching a Placebo, share one thing you will do to accomplish your goal.

Your Reward: Scroll to See the Numbers!

A report of your progress is always available. If you’re like most people, after thirty days of Placebos, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

What Is Kelly’s Wild And Wacky Journey All About?

You will read more about it when I direct you to the Placebo website. But basically it’s a thirty-day series of two minute videos – created by me – funny and motivating and inspiring – with assignments at the end of each one. Each morning (or whenever you feel like it) you open up the day’s prescription (which was sent to your email) and take your dose.

And when you sign up, you are now part of my happiness community, where you can meet other subscribers and talk with me about your progress.

Sign Up NOW Before The Price Goes UP!

So there you go.  This is the official launch of my 30-day program. And here’s the really cool thing. Listen up close..

WE ARE OFFERING AN INTRODUCTORY SPECIAL LOW PRICE TO THE FIRST HUNDRED PEOPLE WHO SIGN UP!  YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE HOW INEXPENSIVE THIS IS – IF YOU SIGN UP NOW.

Once the offer ends, the price of the program will go up.

It’s Not About Who Is The Best Motivational Speaker!

IMG_2400

Mirror Mirror On The Wall – Who’s The Best Motivational Speaker Of Them All?

Every once in a while I hear that question posed on Facebook – “Who’s the best speaker out there?” And I always grit my teeth because the question just doesn’t make sense. That’s like asking who is the best singer – or the best actor – or the best guitar player – or the best painter.  Speakers, like artists, are going to appeal to the people they appeal to most.

It’s not about whether you are the best, it’s about whether you are the best fit for that audience.

This will sound like I’m bragging (sorry) but I get standing ovations all the time. I get high evaluations all the time. I get booked all the time and I get asked back all the time.

Does that mean I’m the best? No. Not even close. It means I’m very good at what I do, and I’m in front of the right crowd for me.

That’s not always the case. I did a group of sanitation workers in a small town out west. It was awful. They hated it. From the moment they walked in, I knew I was in trouble. I did my best stuff – stuff that had killed over and over. I gave it everything I had. And they still hated it. “Don’t have her back,” someone put on their evaluation.

Does that mean my ranking on the “Who’s The Best Speaker” list went down? No. It means I was the wrong fit. Period. To them, I wasn’t the best – and was quite possibly the worst. To the group I did last week, I was the best they had ever seen. Different group, different likes, different needs. For them, I fit like a glove.

So stop worrying about whether you’re the best in this business, and focus on being the best fit.
