Marshall Townsend and MT2Leadership’s Logo:
a) How do you help businesses, leaders, and youths discover the importance of marking their ball?
Marshall will share his philosophy of how the act of marking your ball changes your mindset from a person that lives their life on the driving range and those that live life on the golf course. It is the difference between a fire-and-forget mentality and learning to take ownership and responsibility for actions.
b) Why do you think we mark our ball on the golf course?
Marshall will share the three reasons for ownership and how they affect our thinking and actions in the real world. How we live is based on how and when we mark our ball.
c) What is wrong with the driving range? Don’t we need practice?
Marshall will share his breakdown of the word practice, where he assigns a definition for each of the letters and how, when applied, practice is more than just trying to make perfect. Intentional practice is more than just a warm-up or where you throw away your best shots for the day.
a) What are the most dangerous times when climbing a mountain, achieving goals, or chasing your dreams?
Marshall will discuss the business owner’s journey to achieve success and how the uphill and downhill paths are not the most dangerous part of the journey.
b) Talk to me about the campfire. Most people see a campfire as a safe and secure place to be. Why do you dislike the campfire?
Marshall will discuss his philosophy on the campfire being the number one killer of dreams. Once we get stuck, we stay stuck because stuck sticks.
c) How do you get out of your comfort zone? How do you escape the campfire?
Marshall will talk about the fight to separate yourself from the comforts of the campfire and adventure into the wilderness. To get back on the trail and grow your business. It’s not about starting over; it’s about starting a new.
