Back in 1974, a relatively obscure singer/songwriter couple celebrated the birth of their baby girl. And by the time she was 6 years old, the little girl joined her parents on stage. Sadly, her parents divorced. But the little girl continued to tour with her father. And he taught her how to yodel. And that would come in handy later on.
Not many singers, who know how to yodel, become famous.
In fact, I’d be willing to bet you can’t name three famous yodelers right this minute. Right? But don’t feel bad. I can’t either.
But it wasn’t exactly the yodeling that made the young girl famous. Matter of fact, she had to work hard and sacrifice to even be noticed. But she definitely got noticed.
When she was only 15, she began her career as a solo act. And her hard work paid off. Because she won a vocal scholarship to a private school of the arts. And that’s where she learned guitar and started writing songs. After that, she moved to San Diego, California, to live with her mother. But she decided to try and go it on her own again. And she even lived in a van so she could focus on her music career.
She worked hard to develop her own style. And her vocals and poetic, storytelling lyrics helped her land a steady booking at the Innerchange in Pacific Beach. That’s where she was discovered by a music manager and record company reps. And they were impressed enough to sign her to a recording deal with Atlantic Records in 1994.
But you might wonder, how did knowing how to yodel help her out?
Well, that falls into the category, I mentioned, of developing her own style. Because she applied some of the techniques for yodeling to the way she sang her songs. And audiences loved it. So did those record company people.
And she did so well that she’s one of those talented singers you know by only one name.
And she’s an awesome example of someone who created a vision for herself and didn’t let anything or anyone distract her from it. Focus like that doesn’t always mean you’ll end up rich and famous. But it IS the only way you can achieve your dreams and goals.
And that’s why I talk about your Vision and Focus so much in my RondaReady System…and in RondaReady UNversity. And since you brought up UNversity (oh wait, that was me), the deadline to enroll for April’s class is starting to loom. March 31.
It’s hands-on how-to coaching to help you build your business better and faster with a proven system. Monthly tuition is a minuscule $15. Fifty cents a day. And you could probably find that much change lying around on your nightstand or next to your phone on the kitchen counter. Why not pick it up and spend it on something that could pay you big dividends for the rest of your life?
But don’t let the March 31st deadline pass you by. Remember, tardiness won’t be tolerated. You can enroll after the deadline, but you’ll have to wait for May’s class if you do. You can cancel anytime. But dropouts will drop out forever.
And here’s an idea…
If fifty cents a day is too much to invest in yourself, at least open my free emails and start grabbing some of the valuable tips I share with my RondaReady Regulars. I’ll even send you my free “Blueprint For Success” to help you set up your foundation.
Either way, Get Ready to Be Ready and be the highly organized CEO of your own business, and…
