Christmas From Brock’s Perspective

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

In the interest of being politically correct, some would say that you shouldn’t wish people a “Merry Christmas”.

I got an entertaining email from famous marketer, Frank Kern this morning, where he mentioned that some attorneys might recommend saying, “Happy non-denominational period of celebration.”

After all, we don’t want to offend anyone.

To that I say BAH HUMBUG.

While I don’t set out to offend people intentionally, I also realize the importance of being myself.

So I want to take this moment to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

As we come to the end of 2009, I thought it only fitting to do something a little out of the ordinary.

Since I consider you family, I’ve decided to share the photo (it’s above) and letter that we sent to all of those closest to us this year.

You probably got some of these letters yourself – from your friends and family.

And most of the time, they’re dry, boring letters.

I have to hand it to my wife Lisa though, because she does her best to keep our yearly Christmas letter entertaining.

Here it is – Christmas from Brock’s perspective…

= = =

I decided to do mommy a favor and write the Christmas letter from a toddler’s perspective, so sit down, sip some chocolate milk and enjoy.

This has been a year to remember. I for one learned to walk and keep everyone on their toes chasing after me. I find it funny when I’m corrected and have a vocabulary of a three year old.

Yes, you heard it right, I am Brock the magnificent, and I brightened my whole family’s life the day I was born.

Enough about me. Let me tell you about being the youngest of four way older siblings.

I know how to manipulate everyone in the family, because they know I’m cute and they can’t resist my laugh and smile.

Everyone in the family loves me to the moon and back.

I like it when Jerry chases me around the house. Kaitlynn helps take care of me and teaches me awesome dance moves. Thanks to Kait, I know how to shake my booty.

Michaela reads me books and gives me baths.

This summer, I was a ring bearer at Adam and Teasha’s wedding. I hope I look like him when I get older. Our family had fun being together and dancing all afternoon.

I have a feeling there is something going on, my mommy’s tummy is big and she keeps telling me to kiss baby Elliana.

I think I’m going to have a baby sister pretty soon.

I’m going to be so jealous because I’m the family’s baby. What am I going to do?

I love my daddy he is the greatest! I run into his office while he’s doing his calls and jump on his lap. Mommy tries to catch me before I burst through the office doors, but most the time she’s too slow.

Well… it’s my bedtime. I hope you enjoy the Christmas Season as much as me.

I love taking ornaments off the tree and running my monster trucks over the little people in the Christmas village. If you haven’t done this yet, give it a try. It’s a lot of fun.

I hope you enjoyed my letter and your cup of chocolate milk while reading it. Have a wonderful New Year.

Love,
Brock Thompson , Mommy, Daddy, Kaitlynn and baby Elliana

P.S. Don’t forget to pull Santa’s beard so you can make sure he is the real thing.

= = =

I’ll be laying low over the Holiday’s and spending time with the family, just as I’m sure you’ll be doing.

I’ll also be putting the finishing touches on a couple things because I’ve got some REALLY cool stuff in the works, and am excited to help make 2010 your best year ever.

Sketch Artist At Work

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Yesterday I promised to share another cool photo with you, and here it is.

Just in case you’re wondering, “What in the heck does this have to do with business, or making money”…

It has EVERYTHING to do with business and making money.

You’ve heard me say repeatedly that no one cares about you, no one cares about me, and no one cares about the products and services we have to sell.

They don’t care about any of that.

Until, they know we empathize with them.

Until they know we care about them.

Until they feel a ‘connection” with us.

And let me tell you.

You don’t accomplish this by acting like some tired, worn out, stoggy business owner.

You accomplish this by being yourself.

By having fun with your business.

By being real, down to earth and approachable.

And if you want to know how to create a relationship with people, all you need to do is spend some time browsing this blog.

And as you do, take some good notes.

Dedicated to your success,

Kevin Seen With Paris Hilton

Monday, December 21st, 2009

I had to share this breaking news with you.

Imagine my surprise when my friend sent me this media photo, where Paris Hilton was seen holding one of my latest information products.

Talk about some SERIOUS publicity.

Just in case you’re wondering, no this isn’t real, but even at that, it’s great publicity.

I found this website called PhotoFunia.com and they have all kinds of options for doing special effects with photos.

Check it out for yourself and have some fun with it.

I’m sure you’ll find some great ways to have a blast, promoting yourself, or your own business.

And that’s what it’s all about.

Having fun with your business.

If more entrepreneurs did this, the world would be a much better place.

So try it, I guarantee your prospects and customers will love it.

At the very least, you could create some funny photos to share with family and friends.

P.S. – I’ll post another cool photo tomorrow, and you won’t want to miss it.

Deadliest Fishing Stories

Friday, December 18th, 2009

From 1988 to 1995, I put my life on the line every day, working in the most dangerous job in the world – as an Alaska Fisherman.

Every time someone discovers this about me, they want to know what it was like.

I then ask them, “Have you ever seen “The Deadliest Catch” on Discovery Channel”?

Talk about an insane job,

In the video above, Jonathan (who’s the captain on the Time Bandit, speaks candidly about what life is REALLY like on Alaska’ Bering Sea.

Pay close attention at one minute, one second into the video.

You’ll then understand why I went on a search for something better.

Every time I see “Deadliest Catch” on television, it brings back a lot of memories, but I sure am glad that I found an easier way to provide for my family.

The fact is, you can make a VERY nice income…

WITHOUT working your fingers to the bone.

And believe it or not, you can even get paid for doing something you LOVE doing.

All you have to do is make the decision that this is something you want, and then latch onto a mentor who’s qualified and willing to show you how they did it.

Website “Xray Vision” Secrets

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Yesterday afternoon I put a video on the blog that Lisa made for you, and so far – 540 of you have watched it.

One of the great things about having an online business, is the fact that we can see how people interact with our website.

We can see how many unique visitors we get on a given day.

We can see how they interact with our website.

We can see what makes them want to buy our products and services.

In short…

We can see EVERYTHING.

Because we have this “xray vision”, it allows us to fine-tune things, so we can get even better results.

After seeing the revealing video above, your curiosity was piqued, and I’m sure you’ve got some questions.

Maybe you’re wondering how I use this “xray vision” to get better results.

Maybe you want to know how you can use this “xray vision” in your own business.

Maybe you want to know how I’m able to create such a powerful connection with so many people, even though I’ve not met them in person.

Whatever your question is, you can ask it below.

I’ll then answer them in the coming days and weeks.

Go ahead and ask your questions – anything is fair game.

Thank You Kara Leonard

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank Kara Leonard for the donation she made to the Thompson Family Foundation.

As you can see in the video above (that my wife Lisa made for you), your donation will be going to very good use, helping families who are less fortunate than us.

You may have noticed that my friend Jeff Ziegler, who also has a family foundation, just completed a major undertaking.

I let you know about his project the other day.

Here’s the email I just received from Jeff.

= = =

Dear Kevin,

Wow.

What an incredible past couple days it has been.

Many people from around the world heroically jumped
on board my Special Christmas Giveaway…

I am happy to report that it was a resounding success.

Thanks for helping me spread the word and the Christmas
spirit to these kids in need.

I simply could not have done it without you, and I am
so excited for the many kids whose holiday season just
got a lot brighter.

… So, thank you.

After the holidays, I will post in the membership site,
video footage from each charity event.

You will then see how your decision to lend a helping
hand had an incredible positive impact on the life
of a child… Stay tuned for more.

Best,
Jeff Ziegler

= = =

If you too got involved in Jeff’s project, I want to send you a HUGE “Thank You”.

In 2010, we’ll be using the Thompson Family Foundation to do many more great things, and have a positive impact on more people’s lives.

I’ll be sure to keep you posted every step of the way.

Hope you’re having a wonderful Holiday Season.

View From Seattle’s Space Needle

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Seattle is an incredibly beautiful city, and as I was browsing through my videos, I found one that has a unique view of the city.

This one is from the top of the Space Needle… coming down.

It was filmed last July, and I thought that sharing it with you now (in the middle of winter), might warm you up a little.

Enjoy.

P.S. – There’s a marketing lesson here as well. See if you can catch it.

The Wrong Number Miracle

Friday, December 4th, 2009

After seeing a post by my friend Brett on his Facebook page, I had to check this out for myself.

This article was published by NBC San Diego, and it will make your day.

= = =

Virginia Saenz could hear the desperation in the voice of the telephone message. It was 5 a.m. on the day before Thanksgiving, and the caller, Lucy Crutchfield, was trying to tell her daughter that she’d send money for groceries — but she’d have to miss a mortgage payment to do it.

But Crutchfield dialed the wrong number. Instead of getting her daughter, she got Saenz, a real estate agent from the San Diego suburb of Tierrasanta.

“I know right now we are all struggling,” Saenz said. “Lisa on the phone, she sounded so desperate for her daughter, it broke my heart.”

Saenz did the only thing she could think of — she called Crutchfield back and said not to worry. Crutchfield would pay the mortgage, and Saenz would handle the groceries.

“She said, ‘You have the wrong number … don’t worry any more,’ ” Crutchfield recalled.

For Crutchfield, it was a holiday miracle. Her house is already in foreclosure. Her mother recently passed away, and Crutchfield is now trying to pay off her house. She had a money order prepared to make a mortgage payment on that house — but was going to cash it in when her daughter called asking for money.

“I thought I was going to lose that house, too,” Crutchfield said.

Saenz told Crutchfield to keep her money and promised to take care of her daughter. The real estate agent then called Crutchfield’s daughter.

“I asked her what she would like, what her kids like, and then I felt really bad because she said she only wanted eggs and milk,” Saenz said. “When somebody only asks you for eggs and milk, they are in a really bad situation.”

So Saenz went grocery shopping on Thanksgiving morning with her 14-year-old son in tow to tell her what kids liked to eat. They bought food for a Thanksgiving dinner and enough groceries to get Crutchfield’s daughter through the end of the month — her next payday.

She said the act of giving made “the day special for me.”

“I helped somebody,” Saenz said Friday. “I think it’s what anybody would have done.”

See…

Told you that it would make your day.

I hope it inspires you to pay it forward, and do something special for someone else this Holiday Season.

Making A Difference

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Here in the Thompson household, we’re doing some awesome things this Holiday Season.

As you know, we started the Thompson Family Foundation last year, and since doing so, our sole purpose has been funding that foundation.

Now it’s time to use those funds for doing something good in this world.

The videos above show what Lisa and Kaitlynn have been up to.

If you’d like to get involved with us, you can make a donation by check to the Thompson Family Foundation.

Then mail it to:

Thompson Family Foundation
19322 107th Ave. NE
Arlington, WA 98223

We’ll put your donation to good use this Holiday Season, by helping those who are less fortunate.

We’ll be delivering all the toys and food to needy families in the area, and we might even be able to get some videos of that too.

If so, I’ll be sure to share them with you.

Dedicated to your success,
Kevin Thompson
