My good friend and client Lisa Sasevich is the one who first introduced me to the concept of “committed but not attached.” And the first time I heard it I thought “what on earth is she talking about? That makes no sense.”
You see, if you’re anything like me, you too may have confused what it means to be attached versus committed. And maybe (like me) you actually may be afraid that if you AREN’T attached to the process, you’re somehow letting the process down and opening yourself up to failure.

Years ago, I was a master at studying what the successful entrepreneurs do.

Two of the biggest ways to have partners promote you include you launching a product or program and having your partners promote it or you hosting some sort of free giveaway or telesummit/video summit, where you have partners who provide content and promote in exchange for also building their lists/communities.
I’ve covered launches in other posts, so today I thought I’d cover 3 tips to hosting a successful giveaway or telesummit.
