=> Marketing Coaching + Mastermind Meeting in PDX + more this week
BIG NEWS! New Location, Day & Time for the PDX Mastermind Meeting Starting this Thursday
Our next Mastermind meeting is on a new day at a new time in a new place! The Portland Mastermind meeting happens this week on Thursday, March 2nd, from 11:30am to 1:30pm in the Community Room (#944) at Lloyd Center.
Yes, THE Lloyd Center--the mall, with over 5000 off-street parking spots, a food court, plus a ton of shopping. Talk about convenient!
The Community Room is on Level 1 (the bottom floor) right outside the mall entrance to Ross. See the map above; the location is highlighted in yellow.
And YES, going forward, the Portland Mastermind meetings will happen on the first Thursdays in Portland in the afternoons so that you can spend the mornings getting stuff done before you spend the afternoon with your coach and tribe.

New! Book Your 1:1 Coaching on the DIY Calendar
Big news about 1:1 coaching sessions: All DIY private coaching sessions can now be booked through the DIY calendar. How cool is that?
Some things to know:
If you already have an appointment booked through the old system, it is still valid. We will complete the transition out of MindBody by the end of this week.
If you had any pre-paid sessions on account in the old system, they will now show up as an overpayment in your DIY member profile. When you book your coaching session(s), the system will draw from your available balance to pay for your session.
This new system will allow you to pay with Mastermind money or your Rewards card! Simply note the amount of Mastermind money you will be using, and you will be invoiced for any balance. Note: Your meeting will not be confirmed until the Mastermind money or Rewards card is received, but the appointment will be reserved for you.
We're on the honor system as far as Super Users are concerned. If you are a Super User, it says so in your member profile. Super Users get their coaching sessions for only $100 and regular members pay $125. Find out more about how to become a Super User on the Rewards page.
To schedule your session at member pricing, you must be logged in. If you've forgotten your password, just click on the Forgot Password link at login, and you can change it.
One last note: This transition to the new booking model came a little earlier than expected, so the calendar is not fully populated with sessions yet. There are about five or so sessions available as of today, and more will be available early next week. Thank you for your patience!
Super Tools Seminar at Hatch in Portland on Friday
The live on-site version of our Super Tools marketing class happens on Friday at Hatch.
As you know, the class was already presented as a webinar, so even if you can't attend Friday, you can download the handout (over a dozen awesome tools!), the audio and the video right now at Super Tools.
But if you can make it, you will find even more at the live version, because I've found something new that's even better than one of the tools I already shared--woo hoo!
The Super Tools for DIY Marketing live class will share:
the top tools for powering up your social media presence
a live demonstration of the 3 best tools
a staggeringly awesome list of tools to use now
Here's what our own Deborah Ivanoff (thanks, gal!) had to say about the class:
Local and All Access pass holders are on the guest list; other members are in for only $20. More details and advance registration (much appreciated!) here: Super Tools
YOUR Marketing Coach
Accelerate Your Prosperity by Masterminding
Feeling isolated, lonely, a little stir crazy from working all alone because of the weather? Join your tribe on Friday in Portland for the second of our two onsite Mastermind meetings this month!
The DIY Mastermind meeting is better than a networking group because we are there to help and get help, not sell to each other.
You will get ideas, inspiration, validation, motivation, support, encouragement and connection. Can't wait to see you there!
Get Together with Your Tribe on Wednesday in Vancouver
Twice a month we get together to "mastermind" or in other words, to learn, network, share ideas and support each other. The first Mastermind meeting of February happens on Wednesday from 9:30-11:30am in Vancouver, and YOU are invited.
Local and All Access pass holders are welcome to just show up. Members without passes may use $25 in Mastermind money (or regular money) to attend. Please note that you cannot use Mastermind money to register online, so be sure to bring it with you.
Next Level Networking: Getting Your Message Across
Getting your message heard at networking events is as much about what you say as how you say it. At this fun workshop, you will learn:
How to introduce yourself to anyone, any where, any time
The surprising way to magnetize attention when you introduce yourself
What makes a great networking introduction for you
As a DIY member, YOU don't have to pay because you are on the Guest List! Find the Guest List coupon code here to register. And yes, you can share the Guest List code with a friend. You're that special.

Hearing the same things in different ways allows the information to integrate more fully. After listening to you, I am ever more understanding of the dance between listening and sharing. When you speak, there is the intertwining of your years of experience. I am gradually learning the various pieces that you put together so skillfully and gracefully.
