Guess What’s Inside? It’s a Mother’s Day Gift for YOU!

Me Ra Koh

It’s Mother’s Day, and we want to celebrate all the beautiful women out there who are mamas!  There are all different types of moms from the one who feels like everyday is a saran wrap day as she peels her little ones off her, to the woman who loves on her students at school, to the sister who watches out for her younger siblings like a mama would—all forms are beautiful, powerful and worthy of being celebrated.  We want to celebrate you in TWO different ways!

First, starting today, you get 20% off all our DVDs and 101 Kits by using the promo code: mamalove.  Just insert mamalove before checking out, and your discount will be applied to your products!  CLICK HERE to take advantage of that!   This Mother’s Day Special will last until Wednesday, May 12th.

Second, we have an extra special-special surprise for all the beautiful women who are attending our Spring CONFIDENCE Workshops.  It’s wrapped up like this!  Can you guess what it is?

Before I tell you, here is a little back story…(I know, SUSPENSE!)

For the last six months, I’ve received a number of emails and letters from the most amazing women.  These are women you know, who are trying their best not to let the recession beat them down.  They are both fighters and dream builders.  They are scared but still pushing forward.  They never let the light of hope die in their families.

Some of these women have taken their precious dollars and invested them into our Spring CONFIDENCE Wkshps.  Brian and I have been so moved by all of you, that we started brainstorming ways we could give you even more at the CONFIDENCE Wkshp.

So we surprised the Orange County Wkshp last week with all these packages—one for each lady. Inside is a DVD that has ALL FIVE of our popular 101 Kits and our Award Winning DVDs.  We usually bring these products and give our attendees the steepest discount for coming to the workshop.  But it just doesn’t seem like enough right now.  So I asked Brian if we could just give it all to you instead.  He smiled and said, “Let’s do it.”

At the OC Wkshp, I had precious women come up to me with tears in their eyes because they wanted to purchase the 101 Kits but didn’t have enough funds right now.  Giving this to our attendees…it never felt so right.

So Seattle and New York ladies, you’ve got an extra Mother’s Day gift coming your way!  We love you.  We believe in you.  And we have CONFIDENCE that you can take your dream and truly fly.  And, we want you to feel like you have our support in countless ways.

Happy Mother’s Day ladies!  It’s going to be a good one this year.  I can just feel it!

From one mama to another, have a wonderful day!
Me Ra

p.s.  And yes, the rumor IS TRUE.  My mom is going to be an attendee next weekend at the Seattle Wkshp.  I can’t wait for you to meet her.  It’s going to be crazy fun!  After all, she is my mama!  🙂

p.s.s. Remember to check out Linda’s SOAR! post today as she shares her Business Coaching exercise with us.  Moms will especially appreciate this one.  It’s perfect for Mother’s Day!

    Me Ra…. oh my goodness, thank you. I’m almost speechless. Really, this is amazing. My guess (and hope) was that maybe it was ONE of your dvds…. but I thought that that was probably too good to be true. Then, to see it was not one…. but all FIVE kits AND the other two dvds?! REALLY?!?! I mean, I’m already feeling beyond blessed to be able to COME to the workshop… now… well, let’s just say I’ve been in a season of drought, and I think God’s showing me beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s bringing me back into the land of plentiful beauty. Thank you, so much. Really. Thank you! There really aren’t words. I can’t wait until May 28!

    Me Ra & Brian, you guys rock!! What a blessing it was to all of us women at the OC workshop & yes, it brought tears to all of our eyes!! I know that all the women going to the spring workshops have tears of joy in their eyes too!!
    Your faith in all of us women is really uplifting and motivating, again, I love you guys 😉

  3. Kris says:

    Me Ra & Brian, this is an awesome gift! When you gave us this unexpected gift at the OC workshop, I did have tears in my eyes too! I also wanted to invest in a kit, but did not have the funds at this time. I prayed about it and just trusted that God would let me know what to do. After all, I had the gift of your presence there already, I didn’t need the kits right?! Well, I felt completely blessed by your generous gift that day. I told my husband on the phone that evening how I felt so loved and encouraged after that weekend! I have a wonderful family that loves me and cheers me on with my photography. After the workshop, I feel that my family has grown, thanks to Me Ra and Brian for bringing all of us together. God Bless you both in ALL you do!

    Ladies, be ready for an uplifting weekend in Seattle and New York!

  4. Rhonda says:

    Really!!! This AND your mom? I can’t begin to explain my emotions right now. And I didn’t think I could get more excited 🙂 You and Brian really are an amazing blessing and I can’t wait to finally meet you.

  5. Melissa says:

    WOW!! MeRa and Brian, I don’t even think I can even put down the appropriate words to explain how generous and giving you are! I feel blessed just for the fact that I am able to come to your workshop next weekend, and all of your 101 kits and DVD’s on top of it!?! Both of you are just plain amazing and I can’t wait to meet you. 🙂

  6. Wow, you ladies are so lucky! Super jealous that we didn’t get anything as powerful as that at the Chicago workshop!! I bought the DVD’s and wanted the 101 kits, but after spending the big bucks on the workshop, I was tapped out!! Me Ra, can there be an additional workshop alumni discount on the Combined 101 Kits DVD?? 😉

    Have a great time at your workshop, ladies! It was a great experience for me, and it gave me the confidence I needed to start my own business. Now I’m shooting weddings and hoping to go full-time soon!

  7. Christine says:

    WOW Me Ra, You have a beautiful heart!! I cant wait to meet you in person! This means SO much! I don’t know how to appropriately thank you, but THANK YOU!

  8. Liane Dimond says:

    Me Ra and Brian this is truly a wonderful gift. You just keep giving and giving. I also can’t wait to meet you both. I love Out Side The Green Box and have been saving my money to purchase the 101 kit DVDs. Thank you so much for your support to continue to follow my dreams. You two are the best. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY and thank you!!

  9. Sue Christianson says:

    Oh my goodness MeRa! I cannot believe it! FIrst of all I feel so blessed to be able to attend the workshop next weekend! Randy has been so supportive of this even in the midst of some crazy stuff going on in our lives right now. I’ve had my camera for just a week and am loving it! Words cannot even begin to express my appreciation for you and Brian first of all for sharing your talents through your workshops and also for your generosity with this AMAZING gift! Thank you! Thank you!

    Love, Sue

    p.s. YAY!!! Your mom! I am so excited! I tried to instant message her the other day asking if she was going! She and I have matching cameras! lol!

  10. Kristenita says:

    What?!? You are amazing.
    Tears & chills. That’s what I have after reading this post.
    Thank you a hundred times & I’ll see you in NJ.

  11. Lisa N. says:

    Truly humbled and inspired and touched and, and, and… by your generous gift! SO looking forward to the end of May!

  12. You rock! As usual…

  13. Idie A says:

    Wow! I started reading the post, wondering if I should purchase one of your kits with the discount. Then I kept reading. You two are amazing and I can’t thank you for your generosity! Can’t wait until next weekend!!!!

  14. So, So Cool! Happy Mother’s Day MeRa…. and all of us blessed mamma’s that are learning to Soar!

  15. Me Ra says:

    You are all SO WELCOME!! Yeah! This is our year ladies to SOAR!

    As you learn to SOAR! with your dreams, expect help to come from unexpected places. That’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve been putting my dreams on paper and saying “God, you are so good that I bet you’ll bring me help from unexpected places.” Just saying it out loud seems to breathe a sense of worthiness and confidence in my heart of dreams. It starts to make those dreams more real, opening them up to the world to bring in assistance and support. And in the midst of it, you get creative ideas for how you can do something unexpected for someone else!

    Love you all!

  16. Jane says:

    Dear Me Ra and Brian – I am toasting you with a glass of red wine…..
    We have yet to meet, but you have no idea what impact you have already had on me this year. You are this beacon of positive energy and I often wonder how on earth are you able to tap into this infinite pool of joy and support that we, your disciples 🙂 are being showered with. Thank you a thousand times for the wonderful gifts you are about to bestow on all the lucky workshop ladies….I was planning on buying all the kits and figuring out how to tell my hubby about additional expenses that keep coming up with this beautiful hobby of mine. I had no solution as of yet and here you come to save the day, our Photo Super Hero, Photo Angel…… the right name will come to me….but first I will go get more wine 🙂
