What are you doing on June 22? 

If you didn't answer, “Attending Bandwidth!”, then you’re missing out.

If you’re looking to build a more productive and profitable agency, get inspired, and get your bandwidth back, then look no further. At our one-day virtual event, we’ll be giving you all the tools, tips, and tricks you need to know to figure out what’s holding you back from growing and scaling your agency–ASAP.

And what would a must-attend virtual event be without a kick-a** keynote speaker? We’re excited to have New York Times bestselling author of Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life, Gary John Bishop will get our day started—and get you jumping out of your seat with excitement!

From athletes to celebrities to Fortune 500 executives, and stay-at-home moms and dads, Gary’s refreshing, BS-free approach to personal empowerment has motivated tens of thousands of people worldwide to release untapped potential. And for our very lucky Bandwidth attendees, Gary will speak more on how building a better agency starts with getting out of your own way. 

Teamwork caught up with Gary ahead of his keynote at Bandwidth to talk about his life-changing work and the role personal development plays in professional success:

Teamwork: How did you start getting into personal development work?

Bishop: There was simply an opening in my life where I was looking for more. I was almost 40 and looking at what I had accomplished from the perspective of "what now?" I wanted more in terms of satisfaction, peace of mind, and breaking through whatever glass I had put together in my mind.

Teamwork: Is there a connection between personal development and professional development?

Bishop: You cannot separate the two. We are constantly being driven one way or another by our fears, concerns, and a litany of bankrupt brain patterns and old beliefs. New results require new thinking and you just cannot cause those breakthroughs in the confines of your own head.

Teamwork: How can business owners in particular benefit from self-work? 

Bishop: Simply put, we are all conditioned by our past. Part of the problem is that we can't quite connect the dots between there and now. Any business is ultimately limited by the person who started it and it doesn't matter how positive, how enthusiastic or driven you are, the barriers to unprecedented success will require tackling personally, not just professionally.

Teamwork: You talk a lot about embracing an authentic approach. Why is it important for agency owners to lead with authenticity when growing and scaling their business? 

Bishop: Authenticity begins with the stone-cold truth. Any fudging of the truth will ultimately undo any good you may be doing. Keep in mind, it's not just telling other people the truth. It all starts in the mirror and summoning up the courage to handle whatever you find there.

Teamwork: We know you coach many Fortune 500 executives. If we could only be a fly on the wall in those sessions! Are there any lessons you have learned from them that are key to business success? 

Bishop: Own your mistakes. Quickly.

Teamwork: Is there one thing we can all do a little more of in our every day to “get out of our heads and into our lives?” 

Bishop: Practice going beyond how you feel. Which sometimes includes the urge to do more. Burnout is real. Pay attention to your body.

Teamwork: Do you have any networking tips for making meaningful connections at virtual events?

Bishop: Less schtick and trying to impress people. Come from a place of providing something rather than trying to get something.

Teamwork: What are you most excited to share with attendees at Bandwidth? 

That a life of possibility is always possible. There are no limits for them as long as they can go beyond the constraints of their own thinking.
