Worth A Million

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

My daughter Kaitlynn is home from PLU for the summer.

Last Wednesday was the last day of her second year of college.

Even though she’s still not sure exactly what she wants to do when she graduates, she does know that she wants to own her own business, just like dad does.

She’s already been taking a business class in college, and it’s been quite an experience to say the least.

Early on in her class, the professor was teaching a certain business subject and it got Kaitlynn thinking, “That seems odd, my dad would never do what the professor is suggesting”.

She kept her thoughts to herself at the time, but when she came home the following weekend, Kait and I had an interesting conversation about what the professor had been teaching.

After sharing what she was learning in class, I had to ask, “Kait, has your professor ever owned a business”?

“I don’t know dad”, she replied.

“Well”, I went on, “From what you’re sharing with me, I’m guessing that he hasn’t. It would be interesting to find out”.

The following week, after class one day, Kaitlynn asked her professor if he’d ever owned a business.

As it turns out, he had experience working in a large corporation as an employee, but had in fact never owned a business himself.

When Kait shared this discovery with me, I simply replied, “Now you know his background, where his experience lies, and what kind of perspective he can offer you”.

In short, Kait’s professor can’t offer any experience from a business owners standpoint, because he’d never been one.

And for us, that’s great to know.

Sure, it bothers me a little, knowing that my daughter’s business professor has no real world business experience, but it is what it is.

We’ll deal with that.

I’m not going to talk about how much the investment is for Kait to attend a private college like PLU, but will simply say it’s not cheap.

Even at that, I had to explain to her that she’s not going to come out of college, knowing everything she needs to know about business.

The best way to learn about business is from people who are already successful in business.

People who are smarter than you, who know more than you, who have more experience than you… and are more successful than you.

My daughter is taking a different route than I did to get into business, and that’s fine because she’s really enjoying the experience.

And though her dad never attended a day of college in his life, he’s still invested heavily in his own education.

Heck, I continue to invest in my education ongoing, because I’m continually learning new things about business.

I don’t have a crystal ball so there’s no way for me to know how successful my daughter is going to be in business, but she sure is off to a great start, because she already understands the value of getting your information from the right sources.

That knowledge alone puts her ahead of 95% of her classmates.

You Have 2 Months To Live

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

What would you do differently if you knew you only had 2 months to live?

It’s a question we’ve all heard before, but how much thought or attention do we really give it?

And have we made any significant changes in our life as a result of pondering this question?

This morning my wife Lisa insisted that I watch this 22-Minute video.

“22 Minutes!!”, I exclaimed!

“You need to watch it”, was her reply.

And after doing so, here I am writing this note so I can now share it with you.

And my advice is the same as my wife… “You need to watch it”!

No excuses.

Make time and do it. The sooner, the better.

Incidentally, Zach, the young man in this video died two days ago, on May 20, 2013.

But he left one heck of a legacy behind.

Watch the video.

And after you’ve done so, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Which Set Of Rules Are You Playing By?

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

When it comes to securing your financial future, there are two completely different sets of rules.

The majority of the population has been playing by one set (and doing very poorly)… while at the very same time, the world’s most successful people have been playing by the other set of rules to make record profits and create their own personal economy.

No, we’re not doing anything crooked, dishonest or immoral.

In fact… FAR from it!

We’re some of the most honest, caring and giving people you’d ever meet, who have simply discovered a secret set of rules that the rest of the population hasn’t.

In short, we’re discovered how to leverage our own efforts by making use of technology and the internet, rather than trading our time for income.

As a result, we’re able to offer unique value to large numbers of people who are more than happy to pay us extremely well for doing so.

We see proof of this all around us when we know what to look for because people from all walks of life are cashing in on internet technology, and on their passion for making a difference in this world.

From the individual who’s making an extra $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 a month from a simple topic specific website they operate part-time from their home… to the entrepreneur who’s expanded their once small online presence into a business that now generates millions of dollars.

We see countless examples of this right in front of us every day, all across the internet.

To clarify, I’m not referring to the kind of claims made in ads and commercials that promise to turn us into overnight millionaires.

What I’m talking about is a very real and tangible way for you to leverage your own efforts by tapping into the same power of the internet that so many others already have, so you too can have an online business that compensates you extremely well for doing something you truly enjoy and feel good about.

As an example, I started my first website at GetMoldSolutions.com back in the year 2000.

I have to confess that it’s a pretty ugly website, but… if you’re dealing with a mold problem in your home you’ll really appreciate what I have to offer.

This is one more example of the kind of small, topic specific website I’ve been referring to.

Thanks to technology, in less than 4 hours a week I’ve been able to help 109,687 people to date, and in the process this little mold website has been putting more than $10,000.00 into my bank account every month since the year 2000.

When people find out what I do, and how I make my income, they think to themselves, “I can’t imagine anything more boring than talking about mold”.

It reminds me about the old joke about watching the grass grow.

And I get it.

While I’m very passionate about what I do, and the way I get to provide value to others, I realize that most people don’t share my enthusiasm for the topic of mold.

But here’s what you need to know:

If I can do what I do, and have the kind of success I’ve had with my little mold website… anyone can.

And when you choose to do the same I can assure that you’ll have the same kind of results in your own life… especially when you use this process for something a little more exciting than mold.

If you’re frustrated with your current financial situation, and want to start playing by the same set of rules that the world’s most successful people do, it a simple matter of making the decision to do so.

Does This Frustrate You Too?

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

I got an email last month from a subscriber who was completely frustrated because she didn’t have a clue how to set up a website.

She had no technical knowledge.

No HTML experience.

No web savviness (is that a word? – it is now).

And she didn’t want to have to spend a fortune with a website designer.

She was telling me how she wished there were some kind of simple to use process that would allow a complete novice beginner to put up a professional looking web page without all the hassles.

Since getting this email, it’s been taking up space in my mind, but every time I’d start doing some research, it seemed like I’d come up empty handed.

Sure, there was a lot of stuff out there, but nothing that I’d feel REALLY good about recommending.

Quite honestly, I was about to give up.

That was until today.

I was talking with my friend Andy this afternoon.

Though the two of us hadn’t talked in some time, we’ve known each other for quite awhile, and I’ve always had a ton of respect for Andy.

He and I both used to be in Matt Furey’s Mastermind group back in 2006… 2007, and the thing I like most about Andy is the fact that he’s a real straight-shooter kind of guy.

Before we hung up the phone (almost in passing), I mentioned this email I’d got from my subscriber who was talking about her frustration with being able to get a simple website set up, without all the hassle, and without having to spend a fortune with a web designer.

I sure am glad I brought it up, because as it turns out, Andy may just know a guy who has the answer.

But…

Before I have him go to the effort of hooking me up with an introduction, I need to make sure this is something you’re interested in.

So go here now and let me know.

Type in a simple “YES” answer to leave your comment, and if enough of you are interested, I’ll tell Andy to hook me up with an introduction… so I can in turn hook YOU up.

As always – this is all about YOU.

If there’s not enough interest in this… mum is the word, and you won’t hear another thing about this.

But if there IS enough interest, I’ll hook you up with a personal introduction that will totally help you out.

That’s the great thing about having friends like Andy… friends who know friends in the right places.

So let me know, because I need to see at least 100 “YES” comments before I take action on this.
