A few of decades ago, at the peak of Southpark fame, an interesting thing happened at the Oscars.
Tommy Lee Jones (who was riding a wave of popularity from The Fugitive and a slew of other films) was scheduled to announce the Best Picture Award at the end of the show.
It was nearly three and a half hours into the show, and he was waiting backstage to head out for his emcee cameo. The problem?
Tommy Lee Jones is pretty much the definition of a stoic. His standard character in movies is his real life persona, a frowning intellectual and serious guy.
He runs into Trey Parker and Matt Stone backstage (the creators of Southpark and some goofy guy-type films).
Tommy says, ” I wish I was funny like you guys. I don’t even know what to say when I go out there.”
Trey and Matt, say that is easy, just use this one line.
Tommy Lee Jones, walks out on stage, stone-faced, to deliver the announcement of Best Picture to a crowd that has been sitting for 3.5 hours and says… “We have reached the most important part of the evening…the halfway point.”
The crowd erupted in laughter (probably mostly because it was serious Tommy).
You never know when one encounter or idea will create a changing event for you.
Tommy Lee Jones made his big day on stage one where he delivered a great joke, just by his conversation with Trey and Matt.
One idea that can change things dramatically for motivated authors is the creation of a Bookfunnel fits in.
A Bookfunnel is a sales funnel on your website that not only sells your book, but:
Sells other products after the book
Allows customers to consider your book without any other distractions (unlike Amazon)
Creates authority (and partnership opportunities) with other influencers
Gives you your customer data, and contact info to share the next thing
Allows you to build your list (even with people who do not buy), and sell them something else later
And much more… The pilot course starts tomorrow. Today is the last day to join.
It is called Bookfunnel University, and are looking for a few great students who want to work this into their authorpreneur plans. There are some great benefits to the pilot, including coaching calls for your particular situation.
If you are interested learning more, and joining the course now (while it is a pilot) at a substantial discount, with some unbelievable bonuses, check it out here: https∶//www.bookfunnel.io/ (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1zsFqxCAQgOGnibcNOuqsOXjYHkqXpe2hUNqjJtpIEg0mRbpPX3fptTAwMId_PqcZIkXFpOzIoNkgrEASNFAAqhjWLSW0aI9qEJ52DBQiYCNoNj82u3Fp-7SQUQ-9sJQ7pXrVQQfIvTGWUX5EL7wQQGY97vu6NfzUwGOdUkprU5r8d4xubkOqN-IWE-Yns436OZbXl0Mo-7ReHt7M4eNTjon0Ke6m38-DRrDSq85TZStQYoVzapggWd9kc_ribfLTVcVqvZo1uHxr37V_lXeXt5Di_d0_Of4L7B1Xmg) Leap.Love.Grow.
P.S. Tommy Lee Jones is still that serious guy. Years later (2013 Oscars), the host Seth MacFarlane, famously suggested the goal of that multi-hour event Oscars was to make Tommy Lee Jones laugh. https∶//www.bookfunnel.io/ (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1zsFqxCAQgOGnibcNOuqsOXjYHkqXpe2hUNqjJtpIEg0mRbpPX3fptTAwMId_PqcZIkXFpOzIoNkgrEASNFAAqhjWLSW0aI9qEJ52DBQiYCNoNj82u3Fp-7SQUQ-9sJQ7pXrVQQfIvTGWUX5EL7wQQGY97vu6NfzUwGOdUkprU5r8d4xubkOqN-IWE-Yns436OZbXl0Mo-7ReHt7M4eNTjon0Ke6m38-DRrDSq85TZStQYoVzapggWd9kc_ribfLTVcVqvZo1uHxr37V_lXeXt5Di_d0_Of4L7B1Xmg) We close tonight!
