Ridiculous… at least that’s what I thought.
You’re about to here the story of how I was almost bamboozled into doing a “test” for a soap opera… all from the power of the Adonis Effect.
(Have proof, just ask John B… he was THERE)
You see, John and I were at a business seminar about 2 months ago. We finished up with the seminar stuff and happily strolled down to the bar to get a drink (or what ended up being 2 bottles of Dom P).
When we got there, we plopped down at the bar, ordered a few beers, and started talking shop.
Then, out of nowhere, I noticed a well dressed older lady. As she was talking on her cell phone… I overheard someone singing “Happy Birthday” to her.
Now, if you know me… all I need is a “little bitty” reason to have a good time in any environment.
So, when our new friend got off the phone, I chatted her up, wished her a happy birthday and got her a drink.
The funny thing is… come to find out that this lady was a talent evaluator/trainer for a lot of TV shows… and she herself had been on one of the soaps for a few years as well.
(If you watch soaps, you’d likely recognize her)
So, somehow, we get talking about the Adonis Effect and how John and Brad did the research… blah, blah…
… and I shit you not, this lady looks at me and goes…
“So, have you ever thought about being in a soap opera?”
“Not really, why do you ask?”
“Well, I can go ahead and tell you that you’ve got the ‘look’ that those guys are looking for… in shape… you obviously practice what you preach.”
I’ll be honest, that was a little weird for me… especially since I’m not quite “perfect” yet (but almost there).
But she was serious.
Anyway, I changed the subject and told her that if she went upstairs and changed into her “party dress” (she was planning on going out later with a few friends)… that when she same back down, I’d have the whole bar give her a standing ovation for her birthday…
(Get a beer or two in me… geez)
I run to the bathroom and as I’m relieving myself… my phone rings.
It’s her, she’s already at the bar.
So, I zip up and bolt out of the bathroom and come up with another plan… let’s just have a mini party in the bar.
Now, if you’ve never send someone “Bill Clinton” a room, you might not be able to visualize this… but like a sandstorm… I went from person to person and invited them to come over and wish our new friend a “Happy Birthday” (and network with some pretty high rollers that I had already invited over).
And so it begin… what started out as 10 people went to 20 people, and 20 went to 40…
… and our new “soap” friend was so elated to be having a “birthday party” when she was out of town on business…
… that she sprung for 2 bottles of Dom P.
Now, I’m just walking through the crowd, making sure people are meeting people and having fun when I hear…
“Adonis, Adonis… where’s Adonis?”
Ha, ha… here I am trying to avoid the spotlight and let our friend have her moment in the sun… when… like a electromagnet… she kept pulling me back into the spotlight.
Needless to say, John and I met a lot of great people that night and there are a few that’s we’ll do business with.
However, I guess the moral of the story is this:
It’s your TOTAL PACKAGE that gets you results.
In this scenario, my body and my social status boosting networking ability plus my focus on giving to the situation set us up for a fun night.
So, there you go… just one more true story of how the Adonis Effect can help you succeed socially and financially.
