Pop culture and you.

Today and tomorrow I’m going to be sequestered away with the members of my Mastermind group who come down here to Tampa three times a year to work on their businesses and do a massive brain dump, which generally gets their heads fairly well sorted out.

I’ve got people from as far away as England and Australia, and a few locals from down here in Tampa as well.

Since I don’t have a lot of time, I’ll leave you with something short and sweet today.

You know, the impact of pop culture on our lives is huge. The tragic death of celebrities like Heath Ledger and Anna Nicole Smith, that linger on every television station for days on end, shows how obsessed we are with actors and actresses.

To me though, it’s the meaning of what good actors and actresses leave behind that counts. Their body of work speaks for itself. And nothing lingers on more than an incisive and memorable line delivered in the right context, and from the right person.

So today I’m going to give you some really cool famous lines from famous movies. Try and guess the name of the movie these lines came from, as well as who delivered them. Don’t go looking up the answers online, because that’s no fun. But see how many you can get right, and tomorrow I’ll give you the answers. Have fun and here you go:

“A, B, C. A, Always. B, Be. C, Closing. Always be closing, always be closing.”

“Hasta la vista, baby.”

“Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works.”

“You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth.”

“Wax on… wax off.”

“You’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”

“Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me.”

O.K., so see how many you get right, and be a big boy and don’t cheat.

I have a couple of new members in my Mastermind group who couldn’t make it down for this month’s meeting, but they will be there at the next meeting for sure. One of my long-term members, Patrick Precourt, who runs the largest pre-foreclosure company in Connecticut, just sent me this e-mail yesterday:

“Craig, of the 100 or so people that got back on the phone, 40+/- have signed up for $97 month news letter. Your mastermind group has been the engine behind the results. No doubt that I will have 300+ paying subscribers at $97 month within the next 3 months.” Now Pat didn’t do the numbers but if I’m right, that’s $30K a month… and that… ain’t chicken feed, is it! If you want to apply to get into this group, and take advantage of the rapid growth you too will experience, then dig in at http://www.kingofcopy.com/mastermind

Now go sell something, Craig Garber
