Prior to the pandemic, NAHREP was building a world class lineup for the fall convention. I was convinced it was going to be our best ever. The goal was to create a program that would be rich with content and provided our members with an experience that would last a lifetime. While a live event is still in question, we do have Mike Ferry, Matthew Ferry, Nely Galán and Deepak Chopra confirmed. These thought leaders are some of the best content creators for mindset, sales mastery and wealth building you can find anywhere in the world. If we have to go virtual, I guarantee it will be better than anything you see today. Of course, the upside is that a virtual program has the capacity to reach more people, but the trade-off is that you lose that special energy you get when you are in a big crowd of like-minded individuals.
It is incredibly disconcerting to see how the economic effect of this pandemic has affected Latino families, but it makes me even more motivated to put an event together that will have a lasting impact on our members and network. The Coronavirus has challenged our values and prompted us all to reconsider our priorities. It has caused us to reconsider how we spend our time and where we spend our money. My guess is that the September timing for this year’s NAHREP at L’ATTITUDE convention will come when our economy is emerging out from under the ashes and we will all be ready for a jolt of inspiration and positivity. I promise that NAHREP will deliver. Check it out at NAHREP at L’ATTITUDE.

Almost everyone, including Democrats, were expecting last Tuesday’s midterm election results to heavily favor Republicans. Many predicted a “red wave” where they would pick up 50-60 seats in the House and 3-4 in the Senate. Joe Rogan said the red wave that is coming will be like the elevator doors opening in the horror film The Shining.
When we invited Gary Vaynerchuk to NAHREP at L’ATTITUDE in 2021, I was mostly relying on input from others. Several members loved his content, but the little I saw online left me underwhelmed. However, I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation at our event, particularly his comments about toxic employees, which he says to dump with impunity.
Selling during a downturn required a more strategic approach, but the opportunities for growth and expansion are available to the savviest of companies. Here are some of the best ideas I’ve read about.
A farmer and his son had a beloved stallion who helped the family earn a living. One day, the horse ran away and their neighbors said “Your horse ran away, what terrible luck!”. The farmer replied, “Maybe so, maybe not. We’ll see.” A few days later the horse returned home, leading a few wild mares back to the farm as well. The neighbors shouted out “Your horse has returned and brought several horses home with him. What great luck!” and the farmer replied, “Maybe so, maybe not. We’ll see.”
