I once had a boss who frequently told me, “The proof is in the pudding, kid.” The first time he said it, it made me giggle – and every time I heard it thereafter, it at least made me smile (imagine it being said with a slight southern accent and it might make you giggle too!).
What my boss was saying – is that you can “theorize” about something all day long. You can hope and wish and dream and believe something will work, but until you actually put it into practice and evaluate the results – you’ll never know if it really works or not.
Today, is “Proof is in the Pudding” day for Pageant Junkies University and The Branding Course.
Yes – It’s time to report our results from the ladies who took the PJU Branding Course – And the good news is, THERE’S GOOD NEWS TO REPORT!!! 🙂 Let’s take a look!
First of all – We are SOOOO PROUD of ALL 27 Junkies who competed at their state title this year – As we all know, competing in a state pageant is no easy feat! I’m so happy for those who stepped on the stage with their best foot forward!
Second – The success you see above IS NOT OURS! It belongs solely to the women inside PJU who took the course and applied the principles they discovered. Let me explain…
When you enroll in PJU, it’s your choice as to how “involved” you’d like me to be in your journey. Believe it or not, several ladies chose to take the course without ever speaking to me! It’s true! In many cases, we didn’t have one bit of interaction with these ladies – It was almost like they read a book and decided how to improve their performance for themselves!
How did they do that? Well – inside The Branding Course, we have a couple of ways to keep you on track (specific questions to ask yourself, a Branding Study Guide, The Brand Planner, etc). When you enroll in the course, there’s a built-in accountability system that comes with the course itself.
Now – there were also a few ladies who chose to interact with me via email, and a few others who took advantage of a free 30 minute offer via FaceTime/Skype. But don’t be mistaken – the VAST MAJORITY of women who took this course, found success on their own after taking it!
That’s because… Wait for it… Wait for it…
I’M NOT WONDER WOMAN – LOL!
(or insert your favorite super hero here 🙂 ).
Nope – Not a super hero…
Who am I…?
I’m just a gal who created a branding system for pageant contestants that gets results.
It’s the system that gets the credit – Not me!
One more thing…
I asked a few of the ladies what they thought about The Branding Course… Frankly, I was unprepared to hear the kinds of things they were saying… Things like…
Thank you for the way you’ve invested in me this past year – regardless of the outcome (of my state pageant), understanding and developing my brand has led to true life transformation.
I never would have understood the power behind my brand if it weren’t for you. I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store, and the biggest takeaway from all of your training is that my “pageant brand” is also my life brand, and my platform is an outline of my life’s work.
Understanding my brand, and how it maximizes the intersection of my strengths, talents, and passions, will allow me to have an impact on the world far greater than I ever could have imagined. Thank you for helping me realize this truth and truly understand who I am and what I stand for. For that reason, I feel like I’ve already won.
And let’s be honest – the only investment I made in that young woman, was OFFERING The Branding Course! That’s it! That’s why I’m no Wonder Woman – It’s the system behind The Branding Course that made the difference in this young lady’s life!
Therefore – Because this kind of transformation is what can happen if you follow the system outlined in The Branding Course, we’re going to open up Pageant Junkies University once again for 4 days at the end of the month.
When the clock strikes Midnight EST on Thursday, July 28th, you can enroll in PJU and receive The Branding Course that’s making a difference in the lives of those who take it. However, the doors will close on Sunday evening, July 31st.
During these four days, we hope to once again see Junkies from across the nation recognize the power that is inside of them. The power to fully understand who you are as a person – and how your unique brand can bring a lifetime of impact, influence and positive change in the world.
Now THAT’S a pretty great definition of “Wonder Woman” if I ever saw one.
