TONS OF FREE STUFF TO END THE MONTH!!
I hope you all had a wonderful week and have had a chance to go out and enjoy the early burst of summer weather.
There are some very exciting opportunities and events coming up this week and over the coming month which I thought I’d let you know about. A couple of them are time critical so do get back to me ASAP particularly regarding the free business mentoring training.
WHAT’S IN THIS MONTH?
- FREE Mentoring Training for entrepreneurs who want to give back
- Book Reading Flash Mob Update
- FREE Wilson Luna Millionaire Incubator Bootcamp
- FREE ‘Pay It Forward Experience’ Bracelet
- FREE Places on PhotoReading Workshop – Live Streaming of the April Event

THE GET MENTORING PROJECT
The Get Mentoring Project is looking for trained Volunteer Business Mentors. I attended the training this week which was facilitated by a Coach for some of the British and Olympic team. In addition to finding out more about the Get Mentoring initiative, it was also a great refresher on the real differences between Coaching and Mentoring, and we also had the opportunity to learn models from from the elite sporting world, some of which I'll be adding to my tookit.
The same organisation and facilitator will be running another FREE event in April so if you would like to attend send a mail to: marilyn@tranceformationsTM.com
Get Mentoring is an initiative to unlock, train and support a community of enterprise mentors across the UK. Our aim is to recruit and train thousands of mentors from the micro, small and medium-sized business community. If you are eligible you and you and your staff can be trained for free in the skills of an Enterprise Mentor. On the half-day session you will not only learn the skills to develop your own mentoring expertise but also have the opportunity to take time out to think more strategically about your own business growth and development.
This opportunity is only available until the 31st May 2012 and on a first come first served basis. Only 10,000 UK wide mentors are being sought!
PHOTOREADING™ INTRO EVENING
I am running a PhotoReading™ Introductory Workshop in South Kensington on Monday 23rd April, 6.45pm – 8.45pm. For further details and to book a place go to: http://evolvewellnesscentre.com/events#photoreading Places are limited due to the size of the venue so please do book early.
UNABLE TO GET TO A WORKSHOP? – WE’LL LIVE STREAM IT TO YOU!!
I said that I was looking to do something special to celebrate 10 Years as a PhotoReading™ Instructor so I’ve decided that I will Live Stream the April PhotoReading Weekend Workshop. This means that if you are geographically challenged, living outside the UK, or would like a recording of the event, can now join us via live stream, and also go through the class again at your own pace.
I am also offering a special Buy One Get One Free ticket this month so that you can participate with a friend who can be your ‘speak & listen’ buddy throughout the weekend. You can also tweet and facebook your questions in during the class. For booking details go to: http://secretofphotoreading.eventbrite.com/
WHAT HAVE OTHERS SAID ABOUT PHOTOREADING
Author Harun Rabbani finally attended my PhotoReading Weekend Workshop having put it off for many years. He was so impressed with the Workshop that he recorded a short interview talking about his experiences. I was particularly blown away with his explanation of how just one simple technique which I share on the Friday night helped him to immediately reach higher states of consciousness. To listen to the Podcast go to: http://marilyndevonish.podomatic.com/entry/2012-03-24T05_14_23-07_00 (no sign up or opt in required).
"MY READING IS 10,000 TIMES BETTER AFTER PHOTOREADING!"
I ran into Consultant Geraldine Kelly at an event this week and almost 2 years after attending my PhotoReading Workshop she is still raving about it and "telling everyone I know how great it is!" I happened to have my video camera with me having just come from the Pay It Forward book reading Flash Mob so here is a snippet from Geraldine on reading and 400 page book in about an hour, and how PhotoReading has improved her reading 10,000 fold! http://youtu.be/5DAN210VlGk
THE PAY IT FORWARD EXPERIENCE – FREE PIF BRACELET
On Saturday night I attended the red carpet screening of the Pay It Forward movie starring Kevin Spacey, Haley Joel Osment and Helen Hunt, and Kevin Spacey very kindly donated the Old Vic Tunnels for the occasion. The night was in honour of the PIF Movement Founder Charley Johnson who is visiting the UK. (Charley will be speaking at the Yes Group this Wednesday so do go along if you can make it as the Q&A after the screening was fascinating).
I personally was very inspired by the whole event and hearing what Charley has been doing for the past 4 years to bring the movie to life. One of the fun and magical pieces is the Pay It Forward bracelet. The premise is that you wear the bracelet as a simple reminder to help other people out. When you receive a ‘Thank You’ for whatever you have done, give them the bracelet and ask that person to ‘Pay It Forward’ i.e., ask them to wear the bracelet and do something nice for someone else, and when they get a thank you, they pass the bracelet on. It could be something as simple as holding a door open, or buying someone a coffee; a friend of mine on facebook recently gave away a car!
I got a couple of spare bracelets from Charley which I’d like to give away. To get hold of one (for a picture of what they look like see my facebook Mobile Uploads album) simply do the following:
- Do something nice for someone (ideally 3 people) – it could be a complete stranger or someone that you know - the size of the act doesn’t matter.
- Send me an e-mail briefly outlining what you have done.
- Send the e-mail to marilyn@tranceformationsTM.com and put ‘PIF’ in the subject line.
Also remember to ask those (3) people to do something to help 3 other people.
I have to say that I did take issue with Charley on the issue of going around saying “I’ve done this and I’ve done that.” His response to my question really did shock me. I’ll be writing about it in my next blog post so keep an eye out for that. A link to my blog in on the homepage of my website: http://tranceformationstm.com/
PIF BOOK READING FLASH MOB
As a PhotoReading™ Instructor I simply love this idea! Gareth Stubbs and Jeroen Coenen in association with The Pay It Forward movement organised a global book reading flash mob on Wednesday 28th March at 4pm, all time zones. The London event took place in Trafalgar Square, and other locations across the UK and internationally. Those that took part are listed on the PIF website: www.pifexperience.org
The idea is that we all brought along a book that has changed our lives and the intention was to give it away. There was also a pre-printed note that went inside the book. Photos will be uploaded over the weekend if you weren't able to join us on the day: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150749805061007.459508.669781006&type=1&l=391ffd83c9
WILSON LUNA – MILLIONAIRE INCUBATOR BOOTCAMP
The fabulous straight talking, no nonsense millionaire maker Mr Wilson Luna is back in London running a very special 2-day event in April. I attended in January and it was an absolutely awesome event. I’ve not thought about signing up for many courses in recent times, however Wilson is high on my list. The 2-day event in April is FREE OF CHARGE and Wilson believes in packing the day full of content that you can use immediately – no fluff or wasted time on sales hype. Wilson advises some of the most successful businesses and entrepreneurs in the Asia Pacific region.

FREE TV PLATFORM
Next month I will be offering everyone who is interested a chance to have their own online TV platform absolutely free of charge. I went down to the offices at the BBC to have a look at the technology and platform last week and it is very impressive stuff. If you thought that YouTube had good functionality, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Fully targeted, a backend which allows you to communicate directly with your subscribers, linked to a host of other platforms for maximum exposure, and the ability to offer pay per view or paid content programmes, it is also user friendly and technologically advanced. My first question after having a tour was “What’s the catch?” There really isn’t one. This platform is an amazing opportunity for Trainers, Coaches, Consultants, Business Owners, groups, or associations. I’ll share more in my next update, but if you would like advance notice when just e-mail me: marilyn@tranceformationsTM.com and put ‘TV Platform’ in the subject line and I’ll ensure that you get notified as soon as it is open for public sign ups.
Please feel free to forward this on to anyone you know that might be interested in participating in any of these events.
Wishing you all a wonderful start to British Summertime!
PS: I had a great time speaking at the O2 Business 2012 Event last week and it was great to see those of you that managed to get over to the Celebrity Speaker Rooms.
