There are a lot of things in my life that aren’t excellent...

so I’m following my own advice and taking a sabbatical to go think about all of it.

The Story Behind It All...

What caused me to decide to take this sabbatical is this: 

My buddy Mark who was worth about $300 million and I were speaking quite a few times a week, a few months ago. 

He had an accident last year where he was in the hospital overseas, and was paralyzed. 

(Oh, and just so you’ll know: Mark is the guy that gave me the term “E.L.F.® Easy, Lucrative, and Fun!” when we were playing golf over 20 years ago.

I’m not a golfer, by the way. 
When he mentioned doing things that were E.L.F. - I told him I really liked the term and I was going to develop it into something. And I did!)

So, while Mark was going through all this rehab, after talking to him a couple days prior, his son sent me a message on Instagram asking me if I was on WhatsApp. I said yes, and he asked me if we could talk. 

RECOGNITION

So I called him up…

He let me know they found Mark dead in his bed that morning at 59 years old. 

And something in my mind said...

“Wow, you can have all that money and you just die suddenly.” 

I realized in that moment we never know how quickly life can just end.

At that point, I thought to myself, “If I don’t do this now, when am I ever going to do it?”
And that’s a big part of what this film is about: Becoming a better person...a better Entrepreneur...a better human...and doing it through CONNECTION. Getting connected to others, getting connected to YOURSELF, and the transformation that’s possible in your life and the lives of those around you when you do.

- Joe Polish’s Team & The Genius Network

P.S. Here’s a synopsis that was written about the film: “Connected is the breakout biopic documentary from 11-time Emmy Award winner Nick Nanton that follows Joe Polish: business man, marketing guru, and worldwide connecter. Delving into his hardships from growing up and succumbing to the powers of addiction to ultimate success, Joe is a man with a positive attitude who was determined to not only get clean, but become a powerful force in business. Through a failed carpet cleaning business, a growing rolodex and a lot of life lessons, Joe became the positive energy who founded Genius Network, an exclusive place where industry titans from the corners of the globe come together to cultivate their next big ideas. Figures including Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, and Ariana Huffington attribute many of their own successes to Joe, and also appear in the film.”

Here's A Ten Minute Talk® my friend david bach gave 5 years ago at a genius network annual event that is worth watching... 

Here's A conversation I had about my sabbatical with Dan Sullivan back on August 12th, 2020 when i started thinking about taking a sabbatical. You may like some of my thinking on this...

Here's an interview my good friend and 100k group® member dr. benjamin hardy gave me a week before i'm scheduled to sign off... 

Here's an Article my good friend and 100k group member dr. benjamin hardy Wrote on his takeaways After He Interviewed me (See video above if you want to watch it)...

So what does this look like...

I’m getting a new phone. 

I’m cutting off almost all Business Contacts. 

There’s only going to be a handful of people I will be in touch with.
I plan on wringing out the crazy feelings and urges.

I want to be totally clear about what’s important to me in my Business. 

I don’t want to just recharge my batteries; I want to replace them.

To My Members of Genius Network and 100K:

I care very much about Genius Network® and 100K.  

It’s taken me a long time to build, and we have AMAZING people in the group. 

What I want to do is come back to it so it is the best thing I could EVER do.

So, on this sabbatical, I want to think about what really matters and what is important for me. 

I want to be as CONGRUENT as humanly possible with what it is I say and talk about.

If you’re a Genius Network Member or 100K Member, you invest money in my Company. 

And I don’t take ANY of that lightly. 

I want your investment to come back as a return. 

I want Genius Network and 100K to be a place that pays you to attend, and I have a lot of amazing Members that are going to carry this stuff on while I’m on sabbatical…. AND… we’re going to be the first group that’s not built around some guru.

I don’t want my groups to be known for me; I want them to be known for the people in the group and the successes that come out of the group.

See you soon.

Best, 

JOE
