Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I don't get it ... what exactly is Permission?
A: Permission is a powerful, immersive 12-hour event to help you overcome your obstacles and live into a spectacular life.You get so many things, including:
- A full day of overwhelming support for your dreams and plans;
- Proven methods to get you in the right state of mind to make powerful changes; and
- Effective skills and frameworks to craft a better life in the months after the event.
Q: This seems like a big commitment. Do I really need to spend all day at this?
A: YES! Many successful, happy people spend 4 consecutive 12—16 hour days at personal development events. They don't regret a minute. They've learned that the personal and business growth they get is worth way more than the time and money they spend.
Q: My life is fine. How is a day of high-fives and handshakes going to change that?
A: Lol! There's a lot more to Permission than high-fives and handshakes. There's a ton of science behind what we do, and just a little "voodoo" to add magic, energy and joy.
If you're perfectly happy with your life, you may not need Permission. That's cool.
But ... are you really? If you love your work, is your personal life everything you'd like it to be? Do you have a hobby you've always hoped to take to another level? Is your health as robust as it could be? Are you head over heels in love ... or no?
Are you counting the days ... or seizing the days?
Most people who have incredible lives do a lot to make them incredible. They dream, plan, organize, and implement. They're very intentional. Contrary to popular myth, the happiest, most well-actualized people aren't just lucky. They're usually very thoughtful, deliberate and hard working.
At the very least, Permission will be a chance for some guided work on your future. At best, it can be an overwhelming, life-changing day of transformation!
Q: Do I have to share personal stuff?
A: Yup. But only as much as you want to. This is a difficult one, but you get out what you put in. It's tough to work on an issue if you haven't acknowledged it.
Go as deep as you possibly can, because that's where the best results happen. We can't give you an exact formula for how much to reveal, but for a lot of us, sharing almost everything no matter how intimate has been very helpful. Be as open as you can without being gross or insensitive. Everybody will do their best to be non-judgmental and supportive.
Q: What am I paying for? $497 seems like a lot of money.
A: It IS a lot of money for some people. We never take your money or your time for granted. If Permission will keep you from feeding your kids or paying your mortgage, please don't come!
But what would it be worth to live the life of your dreams? Many personal development event cost $997 or a LOT more, but the things you learn are priceless.
Here's a partial "What You Get" list:
- You get the day at Permission.
- You get the course materials.
- You get lunch.
- We pay for your parking.
- You'll get feedback and support from very positive, very motivated people.
- You'll get a chance to get our video course at a very steep discount.
What's it worth to live every day with purpose, passion, and profit? How long will you put in boring days at a job you hate? How long are you going to accept a lukewarm relationship? How long are you going to go home and turn on the TV instead of doing something dynamic, profitable and FUN?
Q: I'm a little scared. What if I have to make big changes?
A: Change is scary. We get that. Your friends and family might find your new purpose and energy a little strange.
But here's the thing about change — it happens no matter what. Governments rise and fall, companies come and go, the news keeps getting more negative, and all of us are eventually going to lose our health or run into major challenges.
The real question is not IF you have to deal with change. It's WHETHER you want change to happen TO you, or you want to take control of how and when it happens.
Not everybody will reach the life of their dreams, of course, but you have a much better shot if you're trying.
Even if you never get where you hope to go, life is a LOT more fun when you have a dream and a plan and when you're taking steps toward your vision every day. Trade a little stress and fear now for a lot of regrets later.
Q: What are some benefits I'll get if I attend Permission?
A: That's a big one. If you come with an open mind and play full out, the list of potential benefits is huge. Here are a few:
- A day of energy, high-fives and handshakes.
- Personalized frameworks for achieving the life of your dreams, solving your external obstacles, dealing with your "inside" stuff, and just being a better, more actualized version of yourself.
- More contentment and less anxiety about your decision making and the future.
- A clear vision of your mission in life.
- A set of goals for your personal development.
- Clear first steps to move forward.
Not everything you'll learn at Permission will help you, of course. Almost everything we cover is supported by science, but emotion and commitment are important, too. That's why we say Permission is "80 percent science and 20 percent voodoo." The voodoo is the magic we do to get you emotionally involved. You can set aside whatever doesn't work for you, but people have gotten amazing results. Some of them will share their stories with you from the stage!
Come to Permission. We'll get energized, work hard, support you, and leave exhausted with a sense of accomplishment.
