In 2015, this all began in a tiny apartment: This annual experience unofficially began in 2015 with an exchange between Blake and his beautiful wife, Emily. "Emily, let's invite people over to our tiny apartment for a thank you party."
15 People Came Over: Everyone crammed into Blake and Emily's little loft, in the top of the Toronto-based triplex. Each person looked back on their year, celebrated their progress and wrote thank you cards to the key people in their life. Oh...and they ate snacks.
In 2016, Blake decided to make it official. While sitting in a coworking space in Bali, dreaming up cool ideas for the future, Blake wondered:"Would anyone buy a ticket to this thing?" Up until then, it had just been friends gathering in the apartment. That was the voice in Blake's head when he posted the event page online. Then he went on Eventbrite, chose a ticket price and posted the first chose a date, opened an Eventbrite page, and Thank U Live was born.
You get the time to experience 3 of the most powerful practices you can do for your business and life, alongside other epic humans from around the world (while being immersed in beautiful LIVE music along the way).
You get to look back (the counterintuitive approach to create your future success). You will experience innovative ways to go back in time and walk yourself through your past year. You will be reminded of all the possibilities and people that played a significant role in your business and life over the past year. You will be sparking new business opportunities for the months ahead.
You get to celebrate (the step you might sometimes forget about). You will be given the space to acknowledge your successes and reframe your failures. The goals you achieved. The programs you launched. The people you hired. The hardships you handled. The storms you weathered. The money you earned. The lessons you learned. Celebrate.
You get to deliver appreciation. You will be given the time to deliver real-time messages of gratitude. Cards. Calls. Audios. Videos. Whichever way you want to give thanks to the people in your world. This single practice will level up your relationships and create new business for the first few weeks of the new year.
You will clearly identify the 10 most impactful career moments (small, medium and major) from the past year of your life. You will lay the foundations at this event to immediately create more of those high-impact moments and business opportunities for the year ahead.
You will be among fellow entrepreneurs, artists and creatives during this event. After an evening of humans looking back, celebrating and appreciating, it will be tough for you NOT to add some extra awesome people to your network. Friendships will be formed. Collaborations will be created.
The innovative appreciation methods you will learn from Blake Fly are proven methods he teaches his personal clients, as the way to create more connections, clients and cash for the year ahead.
