Who gets awarded a Full Scholarship and why?
While people have paid $1,497 to attend the Client Attraction Summit, it has been our honor to give over $12 Million Dollars in scholarships to this event over the last 10 years.
Some people assume that we award scholarships based on financial need. This isn’t the case. What we are looking for are the coaches, practitioners and entrepreneurs who are the most committed to changing the world through doing the work they love.
When your commitment shines through your application, we get inspired, and we match your commitment level with the gift of a scholarship. If you are awarded the full scholarship you will get three value-packed days that will change your ability to attract clients forever.
If I am applying for a Full Scholarship, why do I have to pay a seat deposit?
The seat deposit is required to hold your seat. This deposit lets us know you’re committed to joining us so that we can prepare for you.
When you arrive at the event, we’ll have a check for the full amount of your deposit waiting for you, which means that you will get to attend the event for free, as our gift to you.
What’s the catch?
(Why have you given so many Full Scholarships away?)
85-90% of the weekend is filled with hot, valuable content about what it takes to attract as many clients as you want. You will also learn about 3 of our programs that will help you add six figures or more to your income, during the other 10-15% of our time together.
What we've found is that because our event is so packed with inspiring, valuable content and powerful breakthroughs, many of our attendees want to continue with us and our community., which allows us to keep doing this new paradigm of leading with generosity.
When will you know the exact location of the Summit?
We work really hard to negotiate the best deals for you on sleeping rooms and parking. We usually confirm the hotel location 6-8 weeks before the event. On rare occasion, we may not be able to confirm the hotel until 4 weeks out.
As soon as the hotel location is confirmed, those who are registered for the Summit will get an email with all of the details.
If you’re concerned about making flight reservations, see the answer below.
Can I book my flight right away (to save on airfare)?
Yes! We choose hotels that are as close to the airport as possible.
If your Summit is in San Jose, you can book your flight for the Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC).
If your Summit is in San Francisco, you can book your flight for San Francisco International Airport (SFO) in Burlingame.
What are the start and end times for the Client Attraction Summit?
Check-in is 8:15am Friday morning.
Event hours for Friday, Saturday and Sunday are 9am-6:30pm.
You will be given time for lunch and several breaks each day.
If I can’t make the entire event, should I still apply for a scholarship?
The Client Attraction Summit will give you the tools, inspiration and confidence you need to attract all the clients you want. During this event, you’ll receive our step-by-step systems, and have powerful breakthroughs that will help you take your business to the next level.
Unfortunately, we only have three value-packed days to help you become a client magnet. If you miss even one minute of the event, we can’t promise you will get what you came for.
If you are not able to fully commit to the full three days, we suggest you choose another date that you can fully commit to. Your success isn’t going to happen by accident. It will only come from your full commitment to reaching the people who are waiting for you... and who need your help.
Do you plan to come to the East Coast, Canada, Japan, etc?
We know what it’s like to travel to events, because we’ve invested over $250,000 in our education and flown all over the US and Canada to take our business to the next level.
And, at this time, we’ve set up our home-base for events in California. We have no plans to offer our events outside of California.
We have found that our most committed members are those who travel to attend our events. When you are willing to put forth this ‘whatever it takes’ kind of effort, it’s amazing how the Universe matches you, and sends you opportunities you wouldn’t have dreamed would be possible.
And... part of why we offer the opportunity to apply for a Full Scholarship to the Summit is because we know that a lot of our people fly to California to attend our events.
Why should I sign up now (if the Summit isn’t happening for several months)?
The moment you sign up, you are declaring to the Universe that you are serious about attracting more clients. You are making a statement that your business is NOT a hobby... It’s something that you’re fully committed to. It’s something that you’re willing to dedicate an entire weekend to.
Commitment attracts commitment. You will notice that increasing your commitment will start drawing new clients toward you who are fully committed to getting the results you can help them get.
Do you offer a live streaming or home study version of the Client Attraction Summit?
We know from experience that the best learning happens live and in person. We also know that magic happens when you get amazing people together who are committed to making a big difference on the planet.
These two things just can’t happen during live streaming or a home study program.
Our commitment is to help you get the best results possible. Our commitment is to give you the tools, inspiration and confidence you need to have a huge shift in your ability to attract as many clients as you want.
That is why we only offer the Client Attraction Summit as a live event.
We have no plans for offering live streaming or a home study version of this event in the future. If now is your time to thrive, we invite you to join us at the Summit.
Should I wait until I’m finished with my certification/training?
We wish we had attended the Client Attraction Summit before we had completed our coach and acupuncture training. It would have saved us heartache and frustration.
If you’re still in training, but expect to start your business within six months, we absolutely recommend you attend the Client Attraction Summit. Attending the Summit, at this very special time in your career, can make the difference between spinning your wheels trying to figure out how to get clients on your own, or immediately filling your schedule with clients.
What if I am just starting my business? Should I wait until I have more experience?
We created the Client Attraction Summit because we believe that there are people waiting for you, who need your gifts, even if you’re just starting out. Attending the Summit when you are just getting started can save you from the heartache and frustration of having a deep craving to make a big difference, without the skills to be able to attract the clients you so deeply want to help.
About half of the people who attend the Client Attraction Summit are just starting their business and have little to no skills or training in growing their business. The other half may have been in business for years, but are ready to take things to the next level.
If you look at the rising transformational leaders of today, you’ll find that many of them made their first six figures after attending this event.
What if I’ve been in business for years (and I am ready to go to the next level)?
If you’ve been in business for a while, but you’re bored, burned out, overwhelmed or still not making the difference or the money you want to make, we invite you to join us at the Client Attraction Summit.
About half of the people who attend the Client Attraction Summit are just starting their business and have little to no skills in growing their business.
The other half may have been in business for years, but are ready to take things to the next level.
They have a vision to change a LOT of lives but they just don’t know the exact steps to get there.
They tell us that the Summit gave them the system to turn their dreams of making a HUGE difference into a reality.
If you look at the rising transformational leaders of today, you’ll discover that many of them made their first six figures after attending this event. You’ll also find many of them had been in business for years, but had gotten stuck and plateaued at a certain level. They got the tools and transformation they needed at Thrive Academy to add six figures or more to their income and take a quantum leap toward their vision.
If you are ready to make a much bigger difference and finally get paid well for your gifts, we hope you join us.
Will I get value from the Summit if I am not clear what the vision for my business is yet?
If you’re not yet sure what your vision is, you have two options:
1) Wait for your vision to come to you (you might be waiting a long time...)
2) Actively seek your vision out.
If you are ready to actively seek your vision out, then the Client Attraction Summit is the place to be.
One of the first things you’ll do at the Summit is a powerful exercise that will help you clarify your vision: where you will be at the peak of your success, as well as where you will be one year from now.
At the Summit, you’ll also discover three powerful models that will help you easily add six figures to your income. These models, for many, are the missing pieces that help them clarify their vision.
What if I don’t even know “what I do” yet?
Many coaches, practitioners and entrepreneurs have a hard time explaining what they do to other people. This is unfortunate, because if people don’t get what you do, they won’t have a good reason to work with you or to refer people to you.
The Summit will help you clarify what you do and you’ll discover how to talk about what you do in a way that people become very interested in your services and refer their friends.
Can I bring a friend, spouse or business partner?
Bringing a friend, spouse or business partner is one of the best ways to make sure that the inspiration, skills, and confidence you receive at the Summit, come home with you.
If you have a friend, spouse or business partner who you feel would benefit from attending the Client Attraction Summit, we would be honored if you would invite them to join you. Simply invite them to apply for a Full Scholarship and we’ll take care of the rest.
Is the Summit a fit for what I do?
The Client Attraction Summit IS for you if:
- You don’t have clients yet, but you are ready to start.
- You have clients but you want more clients.
- You have lots of clients, but you’re starting to burn out (and you’re looking for ways to make more money with less work, while helping more people).
The Client Attraction Summit is NOT for you if:
- You have a job, and you have no interest in starting your own business or getting new clients.
If the work you do makes a positive difference in people’s lives, and you want to reach more people, we invite you to attend the Summit.
I’ve watched my friends increase their income exponentially since starting with Thrive Academy. I can’t make the Client Attraction Summit, but I want to do some advanced programs. Can I skip the Summit and go straight to the advanced programs?
Our recommendation and preference is that you attend the Client Attraction Summit as your first event with Thrive Academy to make sure that our programs and our community are a good match for you.
With special exception, we will allow you to sign up for Thrive Academy programs without having first attended the Summit. Please call us to set up a time for a short interview.
Do you ever provide scholarships that help with airfare or hotel?
If you wanted to attend another event of this caliber, you would need to invest at least $1,000 plus airfare and hotel.
One of the reasons we offer you the opportunity to apply for a Full Scholarship is because we remember what it was like when we had a deep driving desire to make a difference and do the work we loved, but we struggled to attract enough clients to pay the bills.
We know what it is like to be passionate about your work, but not have the skills to achieve your dream. When we offer you the opportunity to apply for a scholarship, we get to match your commitment to attracting more clients... especially if you are flying in for the event.
This way, you know your tuition is handled, and you can use the money you would have invested in the tuition toward your airfare and hotel.
What if I don’t have the resources to afford transportation or hotel?
We (Jesse and Sharla) have personally invested over $250,000 in mentors, programs, consultants and live events. Had we not invested in ourselves, our passion of coaching people probably would have remained a hobby and we would have needed to continue supporting ourselves with a part-time job.
Most of the time we couldn’t afford the thousands of dollars of tuition for the events we attended (let alone the airfare and hotel).
Here is what we did:
If the event was in LA, we’d drive 6 hours each way, to save money on airfare. If the event was in Florida or Canada, we’d find a way to pay for airfare. We spent the last of our savings, put many trainings on credit cards and even borrowed money to attend multiple trainings (it all paid off).
If the event was in the North Bay Area, we used to crash in the basement of our friends’ mother’s house.
Here’s the key: instead of asking “why can’t I”, ask yourself: “How Can I?”
And... our intention is that our programs will give you the inspiration, skills, and confidence to attract enough clients that paying for airfare or hotel will NEVER stop you from doing what you want again.
Where do I find people to share rides or hotel rooms with?
Go to our Thrive Academy Facebook Page and post that you’d like to share a ride or a hotel room.
