I’m alarmed.

As I meet people from around the world at events and my workshops, the conversation inevitably leads to ChatGPT (which has become the catch-all phrase for AI!). The response from friends is something like this:

“Yeah I tried it, but I couldn’t really get it to do anything useful. I gave up.”


AI isn’t our future. It’s our present. We need to be experimenting with this super-charged power now to stay relevant and ahead of the competition.

With the help of some of my brainy friends in the RISE community, I’ve come up with a ChatGPT starter pack of prompts that would be useful to almost any business. This post covers:

1. Discover hidden relationships that lead to sales

2. Have the world’s greatest experts create your web copy

3. Rapidly apply genius new ideas to your business

4. Get organized

5. Forecast sales growth scenarios

6. Find ideal job candidates

7. Brainstorm new business ideas

8. Determine a competitive strategy

9. Create better sales presentations

10. Create an international presence

If you’re still on the fence about AI, this ChatGPT starter pack is for you. These are easy tests that provide some amazing results. I think they’ll inspire you to dig further into how AI can elevate nearly any business!

1. Discover hidden relationships that lead to sales

Ask ChatGPT to seek unusual relationships that might give you clues about buying patterns. For example, I randomly chose to learn about whether the weather could impact the sale of picture frames. The response is truncated to save room in the post.
