1. Interviewing Kevin Hart
Most people don’t know this, but this man is the reason why we’re doing 10X Growth Conferences every year. Above all, he was the one who inspired me to put on my own tour and not just be a speaker.
So you can imagine how excited I was to interview him on stage in front of 12,000 people.
But you know what, I wouldn’t even call what we had an “interview”. ‘Cause it was more like two brothers having an effortless conversation, and I really enjoyed that.
2. Filling up Miami Marlins Stadium on Super Bowl weekend
Most people know that in 2019 we had the largest business conference on earth. Almost 35,000 people attended 10X Growth Conference to learn for three days how to 10X their businesses and improve their lives.
But what most people don’t know is what I personally went through before the day of that event.
For 300 days… I worried that nobody was going to show up. Even after we sold 35 thousand seats.
And it got worse the night before the event. I couldn’t sleep. All I could think of was “Oh man, I hope I did the right thing. I hope they’re gonna show up tomorrow. I hope I’m not getting ahead of myself. I hope I didn’t pay too much…”
So yeah, it was a painful journey, but boy was it worth it.
3. Seeing my daughter deliver a speech to 12,000 people
But out of all memorable moments, this one is probably my favorite.
It’s when my daughter, Sabrina, spoke to 12,000 people at Growth Con 2020.
Then I was looking at her with tears in my eyes, filled with pride and happiness and all the magical feelings you can think of.
4. Skydiving into Growth Con 2019
Yep, you heard that right. I was 61 when I decided that the opening for 10X Growth Conference 2019 would be me skydiving into the event in front of 35,000 people.
Now was I scared? Hell yeah I was.
The hardest part was the ride up. The list of all the things that could go wrong filled my mind during those 20 minutes, but I kept telling myself, “The more you do that which you fear, the more courageous you become.”
After that, long story short — I freaking did it, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.
5. Raising $20K for charity
But speaking of skydiving that day. Later during the conference, I auctioned off my parachuting jumpsuit. The profits were going to a charity.
So it started with 500 bucks, then it got to $1,000, then $4,000, and at one point I told the audience: “First guy that walks up in here and gives me 10 grand can have the suit.” Dozens of people literally started sprinting toward me, but the first guy that got to the stage was Joe.
Now here’s the cool part, Joe hated the jumpsuit, he hated it. But because he wanted to support the charity, not only did he give me the 10 grand, but he also added another 10 thousand dollars on top of that.
He later that day texted me this:
“I didn’t want that ugly-a** thing, it was never about the jumpsuit. It’s your fault you only got twenty thousand for the thing, I had a lot more.”
So here’s to many more memorable moments to come!
