Hi, this is Amanda with Team Go-Giver.
I asked Bob to let me sneak into his blog because I have a story I think you’ll want to hear.
I first met Maria Vitale at a Beyond The MasterMind event in Jupiter, FL this past April.
Sun-soaked as it already was, Maria’s big smile lit up the room as she reached out to shake my hand and introduce herself. Her energy was contagious and her warmth and approachability surprised me…after all, she was an award-winning top producer for LIV Sotheby’s in Denver (a.k.a., a real estate legend).
Knowing that she was already wildly successful in her business and her personal life (her two wonderful sons were proof of that), I wondered what might have motivated her to join this particular mastermind.
So when I had the chance to meet Maria again last week, I asked her.
“I don’t believe in stagnation,” she told me. “I knew that if I didn’t move forward, I’d be moving backward…and that wasn’t an option.”
That passion for forward progress has driven Maria to champion, protect, and advocate for her clients for nearly 20 years, helping hundreds of people to see that a house is not only a home, but also a great source of wealth. And while real estate has been a reliable vehicle that Maria and her clients have used to reach their long-term goals…
She’d come to the Beyond The MasterMind event so she could go even farther.
Because, as self-motivated as she already was, Maria wanted help igniting her professional speaking business—and who better to do that than Bob Burg and Kathy Tagenel, who Maria had come to know as sincere, authentic coaches who’d illuminated the paths of many before her.
Unlike the sales and entrepreneurial masterminds she’d seen before, the Beyond The MasterMind event was an opportunity for Maria to engage with a small group of professionals who, like her, had overcome obstacles to reach the top of their game, yet sought to reach an even higher level that would expand their impact even more.
Maria shared with me her belief that we should emulate what we respect, and that people tend to show what they value by where they put their time and energy. Based on where she’d seen Bob and Kathy put their time and energy (for example, adding positivity to social media by edifying people who loved The Go-Giver, sharing their wisdom and inspiration from the stage with audiences around the country, and pouring into beloved members of The Go-Giver Success Alliance Community), Maria developed great respect for them.
“They’re the real deal. They walk their talk, and they’re so authentic…they genuinely, sincerely focus on the wellbeing of all,” she told me.
Maria walked away from those two incredible days with Bob, Kathy, and her peers with a new appreciation for her unique strengths, an Action Plan overflowing with potential, and clear vision to guide her next steps.
So, what’s happened for this already hugely successful woman in the months since attending Beyond The MasterMind?
“A transformation!” she said. “On all levels—professionally, personally, spiritually, and socially.”
Maria thanks God for her success and feels blessed to be doing what she feels called to do, and she credits Bob, Kathy, and the Beyond The MasterMind experience with not only showing her where she could go, but helping her get there.
And just last week, I had the pleasure of watching Maria deliver one of the most powerful, impassioned, and profoundly relatable keynote speeches I’ve ever seen, just before she received her certification as a Go-Giver Speaker and set out to change the lives of infinitely more people for the better.
Which makes me wonder…
How might the Beyond The MasterMind event help YOU go farther in pursuit of your goals?
