The Big Yes

How To Overcome Procrastination, Perfectionism and Self-Doubt and
Make $10,000 (and more!) from Your Creativity
with Samantha Bennett
At the luxurious Marriott La Jolla, San Diego, CA
June 12-15, 2014

(You'll discover how to make more money & have more fun, you creative genius, you!)

This Ain't Your Same-Old, Same-Old Conference, Baby!

It doesn't matter how old you are.
It doesn't matter that you "don't know anything about business"
It doesn't matter that you've tried before and it hasn't worked out.

What DOES matter is that you've got a dream, and it won't leave you alone.

You want to use your creativity to make the world a better place.

You want to create a fun, sustainable life for yourself - and an extra $1000/month or more would be good, too, hm? You may not feel "ready," but on the other hand, you know that you must make a change in your life now.

Because we're going to have...

  • The solution for the deep, dark shadowy stories that keep you stuck
  • The remarkably easy answer to the question, "What is my life's purpose?"
  • The nitty-gritty, behind-the-scenes stories of how Sam built her business from zero to mid-six figures in just 5 years
  • A real, plan-on-paper way for you to bring your work to the people who will love it the most
  • A way to talk about the money with clients in a way that feels authentic and strong

How Often Have You Said This?

  • "I'm overwhelmed and overworked...and I need to make more money"
  • "I know I need to do something different...but I'm not sure what"
  • "I want to make money from my creativity...but I don't know how"
  • "Can't I just get paid for being ME?"
  • "I've been at this for a long time...I'm starting to get burnt out"
  • "I'm ready to self-publish...but is that really a smart move?"
  • "I love connecting with other Creative Geniuses and I'm ready to sharpen my skills..." AND
  • "Even after all the workshops I've been to, I still find myself stuck in self-criticism, self-doubt and perfectionism..."

How Much Have You Wanted This?

  • Total Clarity on the right path for you
  • Freedom from old stories that are keeping you stuck
  • The easiest, most comfortable way ever to say what you do (without bumbling)
  • Joyfully charging what you're worth - and getting it
  • Membership in a supportive, insightful community of peers

So If You Are...

  • a creative entrepreneur (either actual or still dreaming....)
  • a self-aware person dedicate to continuous self-improvement
  • a writer, artist, performer, teacher or other kind of creative genius
  • a coach, healer or speaker
  • a mistfit, weirdo or wackadoodle (that's PRINCESS Wackadoodle to you, pal...)

then you'll fit right in.

  • "You're not an don't have the proper don't know the right people" (but YES you are)

"When I started working with Sam, I was overwhelmed and scared...but with Sam you're getting someone who really cares about you..."

Beautiful, Relaxing Environment:

San Diego Marriott La Jolla
4240 La Jolla Village Drive
La Jolla, California 92037 USA


San Diego County hotel’s prime location is just minutes from downtown, UCSD, and the beaches and shores of La Jolla. The recent extensive $17 million renovation boasts stunning guest rooms and a new restaurant and bar, Amuse, with an outdoor patio. Access boutique shops, trendy restaurants and sophisticated art galleries from our fun and exciting hotel near San Diego. The hotel is giving us free wi-fi, free self-parking, fitness center and more! We'll have lovely fresh food (vegan, gluten-free and raw options available) and lots of sunshine.

Stay a while?

Many of last year's participants decided to come a bit early and stay an extra day or two. This way, they could have a day to settle in, explore beautiful San Diego (the culture...the zoo...the beach...the shopping...) and take the time to really internalize the lessons from the event.


Regular tuition $799

Refund/Cancellation Policy:

I am dedicated to creating an environment in which you are set up to succeed, and I am very interested in your happiness, success and well-being.

Obviously, this event has a lot of "hard costs" associated with it and I've got contracts with the hotel and everything, so there will be no refunds after May 22nd. (Before May 22nd you may request a refund, minus a 10% administration fee.)

If, once you are at the actual event, you discover that it is not right for you, you must communicate with my team as quickly as possible so we can get right to work crafting an appropriate solution. If for any reason you want to leave, simply let my team know by the end of Day One, turn in your materials and I'll refund your ticket price, minus a 10% administration fee. (The VIP meal upgrade is not refundable.)

I'm looking forward to co-creating an extraordinary event with you!

Dawn Davidson


"This call is invaluable so far to me. I'm being made redundant on the 1st of march and am in the middle of trying to choose what to do next and I think everything you're saying is going to help me with this."

- Suzie, U.K.

"Thank you for validating everything I have felt in the past year and the ways I've tried to process it (through art...through work). I feel like I'm not weird. Not alone. Thank you."

- R.D.

“Sam, I took your GID workshop in the fall of 2011. I had just gotten my private pilots license and thought “NOW I will have the time to write those books!” Hahaha! I am now wildly and obsessively immersed in the world of competition aerobatics (flying stunts and loop de loops). It is incredibly challenging and so much fun! I am freakishly good at it! How random is this? I want give a shout out of gratitude to you Sam. You have supported and helped me in ways that you can’t even begin to fathom. I was unaware of this whole world of online workshops and email lists until October 2011 when I stumbled across a link for the Big Fat Lies Summit on a friend’s Face Book post. This has cascaded into a journey of discovery that continues to lead me closer to truth. The wisdom I have been soaking up for the past couple of years has crystallized what I have always known but hadn’t fully allowed. I am in awe of how this whole perfect universe works. I still deal with fear, resistance, limiting beliefs and other such gremlins. Yet I greet each day with the resolve to see beauty, expand love and Follow My Bliss. I am profoundly appreciative for the people in my life who are holding the torches aloft, lighting the way. Many, many thanks to you”

- Beth

“There are few people who blend a rational sense of system so beautifully with an open and caring heart. Samantha Bennett is the definition of a teacher/guide - she imparts awareness and knowledge with the gusto of an Irish bartender and holds her students close like the protective lioness grooming her cubs to rule their jungle."

- Sam Christensen

“The whole process has felt like a game to get me to think in a different way. The Get It Done Workshop is a class that makes you think that things are possible – I wish it wasn’t over!”

- Sue Hamilton, director for ABC/Disney

“My favorite part of The Get It Done Workshop was listening to Samantha’s great, articulate, eloquent, supremely appropriate stories, thoughts and observations. This class is WAY more than you’d expect…great sense of community and camaraderie...”

- Mauri Bernstein, actor/puppeteer/filmmaker

“The Get It Done Workshop was fun, illuminating and worthwhile.”

- David Burton, writer/entrepreneur

“The Get It Done Workshop is: energizing, realistically hope filled, life-changing.”

- Diane Fial, LCSW

“No one ever teaches you what to do after school — how to use the education you’ve just completed or even begin to hunt for jobs or realistically make your goals happen…(but The Get It Done Workshop does!)”

- Heidi Lowry, freelance writer

“The Get It Done workshop was so inspiring and therapeutic for me. I was really able to dig in somewhere deep within myself, recognize and acknowledge some deep-seated beliefs and really begin to loosen those nuts and bolts of negative thinking.”

- Rebecca Voss, actor/writer

Do I have to stay the whole time?
Please do. And the hotel has graciously extended the special room rate for a few days before and after our event in case you want to stay a bit longer.
Is this some big pitch-fest with everyone trying to get me to buy stuff all the time?
Absolutely not. This is a real 3-day training – an intensive retreat led by me and a few of my good friends.

There will be opportunities to buy stuff, but that’s not really what we’re here for.
Who else is teaching?

I am very careful to only invite people who are actual friends of mine to teach. These are wise leaders, fun speakers and people whom I know to have perfect integrity. In all seriousness, you will benefit just from being in the same room with them and observing their energy, their way of being in the world and soaking up the love that they have in such abundance.

Rhonda Britten, America's #1 Life Coach:
Ben Saltzman, Facilitator/Coach,

What’s up with the food?
If I were you, I’d take advantage of the VIP Meal Upgrade – it includes lunch on Friday and Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

There will be vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and dairy-free options available at each meal, but you have to let me know what your needs are so I can set the menu appropriately.

Getting the VIP Meal Upgrade means you won’t have to hassle with finding a restaurant that will rush you in and out.

Plus you’ll get to make “lunch friends” with some of the most vibrant, exciting, intelligent people I know: the members of The Organized Artist Company family.

Are you really going to go until 9pm each night?
Maybe. We’ll see. But I figured better to schedule it and not need it than to spring it on you at the last minute.
Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! Any friend of yours is a friend of mine. You can bring a friend, spouse, partner, buddy or muse for just $99. Great deal, huh?
What qualifies you to be a Creativity/Productivity Expert?

Well, let's see....I've more than doubled my business every year since 2009 and now run a mid-six-figure business pretty much all by myself from my home and I still have plenty of time for rest, relaxation, reading and travel.

In the last 12 months:

  • I published a bestselling book, "Get It Done: From Procrastination to Creative Genius in 15 Minutes a Day (New World Library)" which Seth Godin called, "An instant classic. Essential reading for anyone who wants to make a ruckus."
  • I also wrote, designed and self-published a remarkably popular book of poetry on Kindle called, "An Artist Talks to God" that has brought comfort to hundreds of people. (Did you know that in the poetry world, selling over 400 copies makes you a bestseller? So I think that makes me, like, the Danielle Steele of poetry. Totally.)
  • My acting career is still going strong. (I've been invited to participate in the development of a Kafka novel for the stage - how fun is that?!?!)
  • I passed a 6-hour exam to maintain my status as an Infusionsoft Certified Consultant and Partner.
  • My teacher and mentor, David Neagle, asked me to join his faculty as his Personal Branding/Marketing Expert - I am so honored.
  • I've also been invited to serve with some of America's best (and highest-integrity) internet marketers as the Personal Branding Expert for Tyler Garns' Box Out Marketing Membership Program.
  • I continue to develop my prayer and meditation practice and I love finding all the ways that growing my business can be true expression of my spirituality.
What if I get there and I don't like it?
I hope that you’ll let me know ASAP so we can get to work crafting an appropriate solution. But if you really feel you must leave, just let my team know before the end of the first day, return all of your materials and I will cheerfully refund your tuition minus a 10% administration fee. No worries.
What kind of artists do you work with? I'm not sure if I qualify...
I think everyone is a creative genius in some way or other, so as far as I'm concerned, everyone is welcome in this training.

That said, there are usually quite a few writers, musicians, actors, singers and other performing artists as well as painters, teachers, textile designers, dancers, quilters, graphic artists, interior designers, stylists, jewelry designers, sculptors, social media specialists, poets, healers, energy workers, improvisers, directors, comic book creators, performance artists, composers, and all kinds of other free-thinkers, outside-of-the-box-ers and artsy types.

There are usually a few entrepreneurs and civilians, too, just for good measure.
What if I can't afford it?
The price of the work is the price of the work; there are no discounts or scholarships available. But I never want anyone to NOT do this work just because of the money.

So if you'd like to arrange a special payment plan, please just contact the office at and let's see what we can work out.
I'm still not sure if The Big Yes is right for me - can we discuss it?
Of course. Just call my cell at 818-468-0540 during business hours (Pacific Time) or feel free to email me.

"The guidance, the love, the support, the wisdom that Sam gives is invaluable to me!"
