I was in my late 20’s a week prior to boarding a flight to Moscow to close my first pipeline deal. And I can still remember what my business partner, a man in his late 50’s, said when I told him I didn’t need him to go with me:
“Martin, they’re not going to believe you can do the job because you don’t have any gray hair!”
At the time I wanted to ignore him because my tenacity and ego had gotten us to the point of closing a multi-million dollar deal. But as it turned out, he was right that I needed assistance from someone with more mileage. The fact is that we can talk all day long about something we know. But credibility comes from trying, failing and ultimately succeeding. And with 30 years of trying, failing and succeeding, my knowledge has plenty of mileage.
When you hire me to speak at your event I’ll bring the knowledge and the mileage. Sure, I can share my stories about how I escaped hotels and kidnappings. But most importantly, I’ll deliver innovative solutions for how your audience can escape the life they’re expected to live for the life they want to live. My promise to you and your audience is that I will deliver a message that
inspires them to achieve their highest goals and their best selves.
