Connect With Anyone Member Success Stories

From People Just Like You – Nearly 1,000 members from 35 countries...

Scott Dinsmore

Hey there!

Wow – like I said above, so much has happened since we first launched How to Connect with Anyone in 2012. We’ve learned and improved all kinds of things, but the biggest difference is what our community has become — we’ve had nearly 1,000 members join us and complete the course from over 30 countries. They come from just about every age, background, culture and industry you could imagine. We’ve gotten to see what they’ve done with it, and the results have been overwhelming. And the best part is you don’t have to take my word for it – dozens of them have filmed their own videos, which we’ve put throughout this page. Please spend some time with them and get to know the family you’re considering joining.

The CWA Experience started out as a tool to teach you how to connect with the inspiring world-changing people who refuse to let you fail - so you could build your ideal business or career. It’s now transformed into a full-blown community of those very world-changers. It’s been unbelievable to watch. I hope the below videos give you a feel for what I mean – and why I call our CWA community a family. There’s no question, the members make the CWA Experience what it is.

Thanks for being here and I hope to see you on the inside,

Meet the Connect with Anyone and LYL Community –
hosting meetups in 140+ cities in 45+ countries

Sometime in 2013 a few CWA alumni decided to host their own in-person meetup. That eventually led to the birth LYL Local – monthly meetup groups all over the world, hosted mainly by our CWA members. Check out this global launch and dance party…

A Show of Gratitude from Over 30 Members

Earlier this year, one of our alumni surprised me by organizing over 30 members to film videos about their experience and showing gratitude for what our team created with CWA. Another member, who launched a video business after taking CWA, edited the videos together. Their full video was over 30 minutes and brought me to tears. They asked I keep it private but did give me permission to share the 3-minute version…

The Value of Connection Coaching for our Members

Last year, after so many asked for it, we hired certified Connection Coaches for our members who wanted more hands-on support. The coaches, Naz and Leah, also happen to be some of our founding CWA members. Without even asking, the coaching clients filmed and edited a video explaining the power of coaching for prospective members…

And now for the experiences and success stories,
straight from the mouths of our members…

These were all filmed by our members – and for many of them it was their first time filming a video (which takes serious courage). Others will look more professional, as they were shot by CWA members who film videos for a living. I wanted to publish them the way we received them, so many are rough and raw on purpose. When it comes to genuinely connecting, the more raw, real and personal the better…

Naz M. and Leah H.
Sydney/Brisbane, Australia

Naz and Leah met in their mastermind, launched a successful business together, became the CWA Certified Connection Coaches and have new lifelong friends all over the world. “From being empty to doing things I love.”

Monet figured out how to charge people, got a paying gig doing what she loves and helped a client get on The Voice — thanks to the support of her mastermind and coaches, and all within the first month of joining CWA.

Carolyn, an up-and-coming country singer/songwriter, used the tools to better connect with fans, improve her communication with booking agents to immediately start getting more shows, and got to open for Smash Mouth in California!

Matias S.

Matias was feeling really lonely… then had the craziest 10 months of his life. He quit his job and started a business saying, “We’ve already finished our first course with real clients that paid money for doing work we love! …Everything connected to the CWA course.” And he was invited to talk at a TEDx event – something that seemed impossible before.

Mike began CWA with no idea where to start with his vision. “I’ve grown my community, connected with people I couldn’t imagine and I reached my goal of making my first dollar online — 10 months ahead of schedule! Probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

“I went from starting my company to meeting developers and submitting a 500k Euro proposal! This isn't just an online course, it's a community that encourages you and supports you to see change and take real steps each week. The class is the greatest investment I've made. It pays for itself every day in the way it changes habits and opens up doors years down the road.”

Thanks for taking some time to hear our stories -

Hopefully you saw a little bit of yourself in one or two of these CWAers and perhaps got a glimpse of your own potential. I’d say this final note below from Stacey about sums it up. I’m so grateful for what this community has become, and it’s thanks to all of you. I hope to see you on the inside. We’d love to welcome you with open arms and help make the impossible your new normal...

Stacey Brown

Hi Scott,

I have just gotten off the Web after completing an accountability call with my small group that is run by Naz, and I had to send you both an email straight away because of how overwhelmingly grateful, blessed, and joy-filled I feel to have found Live Your Legend and to have participated in CWA earlier this year.

You guys have fundamentally changed my life - and I could never thank you enough for what LYL has brought out in me and for the people CWA has connected me with.

Since attending the first LYL Local meetup in Sydney and meeting Leah, Naz & Mel  - and all the wonderful people who made it there - I haven't looked back in terms of being inspired to work on living my own legend also. The friendships that I have formed with Mick, who was in my CWA Group, and with Naz have me feeling blessed on a daily basis.

I get so much out of the connections I have made through you both that I have arranged another Sydney LYL Local meetup on the 5th of October so that I can do what I can to give back to other people, and so that I can hopefully give back to you.

Everything that I am doing I credit back to you and Live Your Legend, and I will forever remember the moment when I began thinking of what I wanted to contribute to the world and how you both enabled me to make it happen.

Yours forever in Legend Building,

Stacey Brown – Sydney, Australia
