I have something to confess…
I feel really weird because COVID-19, coronavirus, quarantining… hasn’t really changed our daily lives at all.
Now please, hear me out before you roll your eyes too loudly and write us off as privileged or just out of touch or whatever.
Our Backstory – Why We’re Not Thrown for a Loop by This
I actually took some time today to gather my thoughts and reflect on where we’re at with everything, and my mind went back to this time in 2019.
In a few weeks, it will be a year since a special friend of ours passed away very unexpectedly.
We had already planned to celebrate our anniversary, so we were at our hotel feeling stunned and angry…
It was a reminder that we weren’t seeing or operating in the kind of life we believed in.
We talked and processed, and it led to us praying a simple but fervent prayer – Father, please connect us to people/mentors who will help us continue to grow and advance spiritually in the way we want and need to.
We had a deep desire, but honestly were not expecting much, and certainly not soon.
About three weeks later, however, a random ad on Instagram halted my scroll.
It wasn’t really anything out of the ordinary, but I immediately sensed it had something to do with the connection we had prayed for.
The offer was actually some sort of business training, which I wasn’t remotely looking for and didn’t care about. I thought it was free, but realized after dropping my email that it was around $17.
I honestly didn’t really even pay attention to what I was purchasing, I was just eager to get in and feel it out more.
Over the next week or so, we watched, mouths gaping, as someone named Pedro yelled passionately at us about Kingdom principles.
We drank it all up like a parched desert, our mouths hanging open, our eyes wide… we were in shock that God had answered so far beyond the prayer we had prayed – prayers we hadn’t even known to pray!
See, we’d sacrificed and worked hard over the years to develop a flexible lifestyle we could enjoy together as a family working from home, but in many ways we had kinda stalled out.
Between being distracted by long spiritual learning journeys, having another baby, all the usual craziness of raising kids and maintaining a household, and other projects and random time-sucking things… our focus had definitely not been our own business or success in many years.
Like most areas of life, I was still kind of working from the subconscious romantic mindset that if something was meant to be, it would be, and in the right time.
We had never been short of ideas and plans, so I kinda figured we just needed to keep plugging away and it would all come together eventually.
What we discovered over the next year was the piece we’d had no idea we were missing – mentorship and community.
I can’t even begin to tell you what it’s done in us – beyond the spiritual component of refreshing, we’ve grown together so much and become so much clearer and more focused in our vision and purpose.
Through the ecosystem of 100X (that has grown organically since its “accidental” conception in 2018), we’ve continued to find the right mentor at the right time for the next step on the path God’s very clearly leading us on.
Through a “random” conversation on one of the weekly 100X Q&As, I was reminded to “work from rest”. As I took inventory of my heart, I realized the direction that felt most peaceful and right was a huge pivot from where we had been putting our focus. We’ve had many moments like that over the past year.
When you get clarity, you look back and wonder what the heck you were even doing before that. I really struggle to remember now… I just know it felt like we were plodding along in cement shoes.
Turning on the light has a way of making everything obvious and a million times simpler, and that’s what we’ve experienced through this mastermind community.
Not only did we find cutting edge business strategies and be sustained through some spiritual depression, we got connected with who I truly think might be the best financial mentor on the planet at the moment, and I got connected to an art mentor who understands the role of creativity on a completely different level and is helping me finally be able to move forward in some prophecies I’ve been given over the last 4 years.
All that to say, we’ve been very well prepared and set up for weathering this situation the world finds itself in. We are very zoned in on our path.
What Coronavirus Has Affected in Our Lives
(I almost said “what coronavirus has done to us”, but then I realized that’s the language of a victim <— ew, get away from me!)
One thing that’s a little frustrating about coronavirus is how it’s caused delays in getting our first physical product manufactured and launched.
At the same time, we don’t mind the chance to get more done before then, and we’ve been able to get the ball rolling for the next product we want to launch.
We’ve also been using David’s parents’ toilet paper.
And our always-eager-to-“go-bye-bye” toddler hasn’t been obliged in a while.
Why We’re Actually Excited About This Time in History
I know there’s a lot of crap going on right now, and I don’t want to downplay that.
I was just thinking tonight about people who have really crappy home situations and how they are managing being stuck without a daily escape from that, especially when it’s even more stressful than normal; about those who have lost jobs or whose businesses are in danger of folding… and the million and one other scenarios affected by all of this.
If you’re reading this and things are looking pretty crappy for you, I’m sorry, and I want to offer you some hope.
One of the best ways to be encouraged and to get your hope back is to get around people who have hope, because it’s contagious.
We’ve never experienced the kind of encouragement and hope anywhere else that we’ve gotten through 100X. Not even close.
We paid $3K to be part of it and haven’t once regretted it for a second, over the 10 months or so since then.
The generosity, wisdom, next-level strategy, unity, encouragement, camaraderie, and frankly, LOVE is unprecedented.
What we’re super excited about is that YOU are invited to join us FOR FREE while they’re recording and launching 100X 3.0 over the next month or so.
Guys, the world is changing. It’s not going back to the previous normal.
While change can be overwhelming and scary, it’s not, for those who are prepared.
For those who are positioned to see the bigger picture, it can actually be exciting.
I’m telling you, this group is ready “for such a time as this”.
This isn’t Just for People in Business
If you are already in business, BY ALL MEANS please save yourself an insane amount of time and money you would waste not taking advantage of this wisdom and connection.
But remember, we didn’t come here for the business stuff at all 🙂 There are people from all walks of life – from those who don’t know what they want to do with their life yet, to doctors and movie producers and everything in between. It’s fun and dynamic.
If you’re looking for direction in these uncertain times, I can 99.99% guarantee this will awaken and inspire things in you that will change the trajectory of your life for the better.
Through this community, we’ve come to understand that it isn’t just about a personal desire to prosper.
We Want to Sow into YOU!
We believe you are good soil.
We know that if you are ready to discover and grow what God’s put in your heart, this community and training will provide the watering you need.
I know some people might not love Pedro’s passionate style of communication 🙂 , but we have been with him for almost a year now and can vouch wholeheartedly for his heart.
The free community will still be open after this launch, but if you decide you want to continue with the higher level stuff past these 4 weeks or so, we want to give you $100 toward that cost. (Which you will have the chance to access for far less than what we paid because of the anniversary sale.)
Be sure to put TicoandTina as your referral and connect with us via Instagram, Facebook, or email to let us know you’d like to save that moolah 🙂 They do give us the opportunity to earn affiliate income, and we want to share it with you.
