Ronda Fisher, Motivational Keynote speaker, author, and life coach. "MultiFaceted & Fabulous : Turning Women Under Pressure into Priceless Diamonds"
"Hi it's Tom Antion and I'm here at the Rock Star System for Success and I just got a chance to see a lady named Ronda Fisher. Now I really wasn't thinking that there'd, I'd even pay attention to what she's talking about because she has a message for women. Her message is based on a book called Multifaceted and Fabulous: Turning Women under Pressure into Diamonds. Awesome topic but you know I didn't feel like it applied to me but as I was listening to her, um I saw that gee, if I would get with women that had this kind of information, it would be a much greater relationship all the way around so I was looking at my own self and my own choices in life and how hey, if I looked for women who had these priceless diamond mentalities that Ronda talks about, I think I'd get along a lot better in life. So for you guys hey get this for your girlfriend or relationships and I think it will do you a lot of good."

* This is the portion of my presentation where I do my elephant impression.
* That is a result of many years of inhaling helium.
* I'll bet you never heard anyone clear their throat like that before.
* Don't be alarmed. This is only a test.
* Don't worry. I pass out earplugs at all my talks. If I don't, someone else will.
* If you think that's bad, wait until I start singing.
* Is there an ear, nose, and throat specialist in the crowd? You'll have plenty of business tonight if this keeps up.
* The microphone and I are squealing with delight because we are both happy to be here.
* For those of you who can still hear, welcome.
* "Squeal" comes from the Latin word "Squel-en" which means: You will look like a big dummy before you start your talk.

Let's consider some situations where there is true scarcity and then we'll look at some situations where we create scarcity.
TRUE SCARCITY Here are some examples:
· Beatles reunion concert
· Van Gogh paintings
· Brains in the corporate world (especially my list management company)
· Everything else
Just think about it. How much do you think tickets for the Beatles concert would be? $500.00 .. . . sure if you want to be in a remote auditorium to watch a simulcast and you don't mind having lousy seats. $1,000.00, . . . $5,000.00 . . .. Who knows how high it would go. Scarcity is the reason.
It's the same thing with rare paintings, artwork, rare coins, etc.
Most of the copy you see written regarding scarcity has been created.
· "Our allotment was only 12 of this model,"
· "Only three to a customer,"
· "Only 12 left," are all generated and concocted scarcity techniques.
They just happened to forget to say the allotment was for this week and next week they get 12 more. And why is there "Only three to a customer?" Is it because the seller is only worried about being fair? There are "Only 5 left." This conveniently omits the fact that the seller can order more any time.
I'm not saying any of the above statements are untruthful or unethical (sometimes they are). The statements are simply appealing to basic human nature. When something is scarce, people want it more, they buy it faster and pay more for it. If you want people buying more of your stuff faster and paying a high price for it, then you may want to implement scarcity into your business model and most definitely into your copy.
Work some phrases like this into your copy:
· We only have space for 12 participants
· These are the last 5 available.
· We only have 2 available dates open in June
· I can only take on two new consulting clients
· We have only 4 appointments left
· Bridge line space is limited.
I am not suggesting you lie. I'm suggesting that actually limiting your availability can get you a much higher price for your products and services and make them even more in demand.

Don't tell me what you dreamed last night for I've been reading Freud.
Insomniacs don't sleep because they worry about it, and they worry about it because they don't sleep.---Franklin Adams
He dreamed he was eating shredded wheat and woke up to find the mattress half gone.
It is such stuff and nonsense that dreams are made of.
The smaller the head, the bigger the dream.
My life's dream has been a perpetual nightmare.
A professor is someone who talk's in someone else's sleep.
A man of sixty has spent twenty years in bed and over three years eating.
It's not easy for X and Y to lay in the same bed unless both are asleep.
(Use this and substitute two rivaling parties for X & Y)
The only time most women give their orating husbands undivided attention is when the old boys mumble in their sleep. ---Wilson Mizner
I never sleep comfortably except when I am at a sermon.
Sleep is an excellent way of listening to an opera.
