Stop Hanging Out With Turkeys

 Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle. I have shared Jay Kubassek’s information on these 4 steps.   I  am now sharing Step 3 of 4 about how to create an Internet Lifestyle for yourself.

Take a look around you and you will notice that your income is likely that of your ten
closest friends and influences. It’s time to stop hanging out with the turkeys if you
want to soar with the eagle.

If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. Can you earn six
figures in 12 months? Absolutely. You can earn a lot more than that if you know a
thing or two about leverage and productivity (stay tuned for posts about these two topics
as well.) Regardless, you have to know what you want and where you are going, or you
will never get there.

Earnings of $100,000 per year mean you can live the Internet lifestyle. You could live in any city, be it NYC, Paris, London, San Diego or Toronto. You could enjoy nice dinners, wear nice clothes, live in a sexy flat, and eat gourmet cuisine pretty much anywhere in the world that suits your fancy

Best of all you could write that book, start that hobby, or visit that place you always
wanted to visit. A great way to simplify this is to break down the amount by 12
months. And afterwards, divide the result by 30 days.

  • 100,000 divided by 12 = $8333.33/month
  • $8333.33 divided by 30 = $277.78/daily
  • Wow, we’re getting somewhere. So, is it possible to earn $277.78 every single day?
  • Absolutely … it’s 100% possible!

A lot of bloggers and affiliate marketers generate over $1000 daily. Freelance writers
can also boast of making that much. So, can you if you put your mind to it.

I remember in 2004 when I set the goal to earn $1000 a day… within 90 days I was making that. Then I set it at $2000 a day – within 9 months I hit that too. Then I set it at $3000 per day and low and behold I hit that Jan 2005.

As you pursue a course towards financial freedom, don’t accept mediocre advice. Seek out the best in your field and ignore all the “talkers.” Pick a proven Internet business model that can bring you closer to earning six figures annually. Can you do that?

Find an Already Successful “Real World” Mentor

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle. I have shared Jay Kubassek’s information on Step 1 and am now discussing Step 2 of 4 about how to create an Internet Lifestyle for yourself.

Step 2.  From Dr Jill’s point of view and experience is to find an already successful “Real World Mentor”:

You must find someone who is already achieving the results that you want in a specific business and see if he or she would be willing to mentor you a few hours a month.

Why?  If you could do this on your own you would have already done it.  Trust me, you do need a mentor.

You have heard the old sayings: “If all else fails, follow the directions.” and “There’s no substitute for experience.”  Both are sort of true, but each alone is not enough..

Without the directions you are wallowing and guessing about how something is done.  To learn a new skill like marketing or being an entrepreneur you need real good step by step clear directions [written, videos, webinars].  If they are sequential and clear you can get a good start at your learning. [The Plan in Step 1.]

If there is no substitute for experience, how do you get it?  By doing something by trial and error is the real long and hard way.  The “school of hard knocks” can work after a lot of time and hurt, perhaps wasted money and needless hardships.

A Mentor is the person with lots of successful experience who:  Takes you in hand to help you see how the book learning education really works and how to apply it.  A good mentor will hold you accountable for what you say you will do and be available for one on one meetings on a regular basis.  A good mentor will redirect you, clarify confusion and challenge you to grow.

Get a mentor.  For online businesses whether it is direct marketing, MLM or a web storefront you can find a mentor.

  • Just check into their experience and success.
  • Don’t fall for the “I can tech you how to make $50,000 in 90 days.” type folks.  Those are the get rich quick type that are usually scams.
  • Look for mentors that have a success record in their field.
  • See if the mentors are recommending sequential and clear teaching modules.
  • Does the mentor offer webinars as well as one on one coaching?

Justin Woolf is my Marketing Mentor and he is patient, but challenging and I am growing in understanding and skills by leaps and bounds.  I believe a good mentor can cram about 8 years of  “the school of hard knocks” and “study time” into a few fun filled months.

More on the remaining steps to create your Internet Lifestyle is coming.

Burns – True Story from the UK on Burn First Aid.

This was originally shared all over the UK.  It is true and something to remember as the back yard barbeque season is just beginning.  The treatment has been verified by the AMA as very viable for even the most serious burns.

Story:   A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it.  He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors ignited and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming.

His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs and a bowl yelling: “bring me some more eggs!”   She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks. The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites onto the young man’s face.

When the ambulance arrived and the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this.  Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.  They congratulated her and said: “You have saved his face.”

By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her.  His face was like a baby’s skin.

A Healing Miracle for Burns:

Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching beginner fireman. First Aid consists of first spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced which stops the continued burning of all layers of the skin. Then, spread the egg whites onto the affected area.

One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.

She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.

Who would have thought of this wonderful first aid solution to prevent a serious injury from being permanent disfiguration?

Why Waste Time Reinventing the Wheel?

Why Waste Time Reinventing the Wheel?Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle.  Now for information on the steps needed to create the Internet Lifestyle you crave.

Step 1: Find a Proven System – Don’t waste your time trying to reinvent the wheel!

Tom Bardeen, legendary business consultant with Michael Gerber (author of eMyth Marketing) says: “All frustration is the result of the lack of a system.”

What exactly do you want from life? You want a chance to live the life you dreamed of as a kid, right? And believe me, for you to live the Internet Lifestyle, you need to find a
proven business system that can generate income – online, without the hassles of a traditional brick and mortar business.

There are plenty of businesses you can start, but the secret to success as an Internet
entrepreneur is finding a system that eliminates most of the learning curves and startup mistakes people make.

The vast majority of first time business owners fail because they do not understand and follow this rule. This is something that the franchising industry has perfected over the
years and PRO U is the first to do so under the new 2012 FTC business opportunity law.

In 2007 I launched a new kind of Internet marketing system that eliminated most of the
learning curves and variables that cause people to fail. Things like selling, telling, and
explaining. Every bit of grunt work that could be systematized was systematized.

We experienced a 400% increase in revenue within 60 days or so. You cannot underestimate the power of a system.

Every successful business model on the planet relies on systemization… so, why wouldn’t you?  [Example McDonalds, UPS etc that have a system for consistent results.]

Millions have all migrated to the Internet for convenience. You just have to take the time to sort through all the junk.

If you’re not getting the ‘real juice’ online, something is definitely wrong and you may be
listening to the false gurus. Or, maybe you’re trying to reinvent the wheel — and if that’s
the case … why?

Stop listening to the countless folk who want nothing more than your hard-earned dollars in return for their faux advice. Countless people make a living online selling untested and
unproven “how to” advice.

The internet is a big place; there are no limitations except the ones you make up in
your mind. And most of the time we do what we have to do … until we can do what we want to do.

Living the Internet lifestyle is possible, but reinventing the wheel will only hinder
your speed. Affiliate marketing, product creation, blogging, website-flipping and domain
packing, pay-per-click publishing, AdWords arbitrage and freelance business are all
lucrative ventures.

Any of these models can yield six figures annually if you give your heart to it. But,
I suggest you cut through all of the crap and go with something proven, a business system
that comes with your very own million dollar marketing mentor like we offer here at PRO U.

But, then again, I am a little biased 🙂

Bottom line, don’t try to create a new business model; stay with proven money-making systems.

Over the next few days I will share with you more of Jay’s information on these individual areas.  Next time, we’re going to talk about finding
someone to help you through it all!

What is an internet lifestyle?

An Internet Lifestyle means that you are able to live life on YOUR terms. Simple as that.

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Livestyle.

If you are reading this ti means that you’ve looked at your life (and the current business you run) and you’re not even close to financial security – let alone freedom- and you   keep asking yourself. “isn’t there a way to change my life?”

Don’t be perturbed – there is a way out of every ugly situation IF you know a certain few things.

Earning six figures annually online is not unrealistic – it’s actually doable and entirely attainable.

Thus, I want to give a wake-up call to your inner entrepreneur to rise above the fray and begin to create the future you really want.

The greatest enemy of man is himself.  If you could break loose from your inner thoughts that tell you success is far off, then there is no mountain anywhere you can not climb.  In fact, most of the things you’ve been taught about money are false.

What do I mean?

The cliché that you should go to school, study and get a good job afterwards (along with a bag of benefits and huge student loan debts) is a limiting factor.

We’re living in the information age, where a single idea can settle a man or woman financially for the rest of their lives.  Academic qualification has its place in this world, but not necessarily in the areas of making money and touching lives around the world.

I think the real education is outside of academic institutions.  The real education you need is right where you are – in your environment: the people, events, news, technology, communication, business startups, etc.  You can learn so much more from the above mentioned channels than in the four walls of a university.

4 Tips to creating an Internet Lifestyle and saving you a ton of frustration.

1.  All frustration is the result of the lack of a system:

Finding a proven business system is the most lucrative step you can take towards making a dream come true.  When properly approached, it’s going to make your success “sure’fire.”

Those who live the Internet Lifestyle today have specific, hogh-powered systems, not mere business enterprises.

2.  Find an Already Successful “Real World” Mentor:

Find someone who is already achieving the results that you want in a specific business and see if he or she would be willing to mentor you a few hours a month.

If you could do this on your own you would have already done it.  Trust me, you need a mentor.

3.  Stop Hanging Out With Turkeys:

Take a look around you and you will notice that your income is likely that of your ten closest friends and influences.  It’s time to stop hanging  out with the turkeys if you want to soar with the eagles.

You will never out perform your self image and if you don’t believe in your heart that you are worth six-figures, you will never command it into being.

4.  Persist Beyond Exception:

A system is what guarantees financial freedom.  A system stays even when the business is gone.  Don’t make the mistake of chasing silver bullets or “get rich quick” solutions.  Stick with your plan and perfect your system.  You will always come out ahead.

Over the next few days I will share with you more of Jay’s information on these individual areas.  In the meantime, click this link  to get access to a FREE Live Webinar to get you started on your way.

5th Trend is Global Economy Mega Trend

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle.

Let’s shift gears from the 4 disturbing trends and how they are effecting folks just like you and me.     We’re going to talk about how these 4 trends are converging to create a powerful 5th trend.

Let’s break down the four trends and see how they have converged, since 2007:

Trend 1) Massive shift to online buying continues (this is good for anyone doing
business online)

Trend 2) People are making less money (underemployment and recent graduate employment is at an epidemic level.)

Trend 3) Massive government debt and deficits continue (massive cuts will have to be made to social programs in the near future.)

Trend 4) 20 million baby boomers turned 50

The first four trends have converged to create a powerful, indisputable mega-trend.

The Resulting MEGA TREND…

The Age of the Entrepreneur

Over the last five years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of people
looking for ways to “make money” outside of the traditional realm.

FACT: Since 2007 the number of people searching the Internet for ways to “make
money” has more than doubled since 2007 to over 5 million per month. (Source Google.com/insights)

That’s a 200% increase.

Over the last two years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of people
starting new businesses.

FACT: According to the Global Entrepreneurs Monitor, 12.3% of people in North America were actively engaged in started or running a new business in 2011 – a whopping increase of 60% from 2010. (Source: http://blogs.cfed.org/cfed_news_clips/2012/02/rise-in-startups-draws-doubter.html)

FACT: 543,000 businesses were started EACH month in 2011 (Source: Kauffman Institute)

And, even though millions of people for the first time are starting businesses – here in
the US especially – we have a lot of catching up to do.

FACT: With only 7.2% of Americans self employed compared to Canada at 93%, Germany at 12%, and Italy at 26%. (Source: CEPR Analysis of OECD data.)

FACT: In order for the US to catch up with the other industrialized countries, about
20 million entrepreneurs would have to be created. (Yes, 20,000,000.)

Economists and experts agree. This truly is the “age of the entrepreneur” and if there is
any hope whatsoever for a sustained recovery, it’s going to be up to small businesses and
entrepreneurs to make it happen. (Source: Small Business Administration)

The millions of jobs outsourced to China and India are not coming back. The tech boom has come and gone. A Forrester Research report forecasts by the year 2015, approximately 3.3 million jobs will be lost irreversibly to outsourcing and off-shoring.

The age of the entrepreneur is here. The age when the only thing you can count on is you,
yourself. Your passion, your drive, your focus, your determination, your ambitions, and your perspective.

You Must Own Your Own Business

I saw these stats the other day and they were eye opening. If anyone thinks bailout plans
and social programs will empower the world just looks at who actually FUNDS it all.

*The top 1% of American taxpayers pay 40% of the income taxes.

*The top 5% of taxpayers pay over 60% of the taxes

.
*The top 10% of taxpayers pay over 70% of the taxes.

*The top 25% of taxpayers pay over 90% of the taxes.

*Even more mind boggling, the top 1% of taxpayers pay more taxes than the bottom
95% combined.

In New York City, America’s financial capital, 50,000 taxpayers pay virtually 100%
of the income taxes for a city of 8 million people.

This is why I encourage everyone to become an entrepreneur. Not only will you save yourself but you are the fuel on which all successful countries run.

So, how does one go about capitalizing on these trends and becoming an entrepreneur?

More specifically, how can YOU be one of the ten million millionaires created over the next decade as predicted by economist Paul Zane Pilzer?

How can you make sure that you are correctly positioned on the right side of this MEGATREND?

That’s next..

4th Trend: Baby Boomers Can’t Afford to Retire.

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle.Today I will continue sharing information from him and talk about the fourth trend…

4 million Baby Boomers a year are turning 50 and they will not be able to afford to
retire.

That’s a pretty scary statistic, isn’t it?

One can easily see a “boom” in 1946, when births went from 2.8 to 3.4 million. The end of the boom is not as clear, however. Perhaps that delineation was marked when annual births dropped below 4 million (1964).

“Every 7 Seconds” another Baby Boomer turns 50 – every 7 seconds.

Whew! Is that possible? Well, you don’t have to be a math major to check it out.

Let’s look at 50 years ago – 1959 – when 4,097,000 Boomers were born. Now, I suppose that some of them have not made it this far, so let’s round it down to 4,000,000. (That’s just my estimate, but it is close enough for my purposes here.)

So, a bit more than 4,000,000 will turn 50 in 2012 with over 20 million turning 50 over
the last five years alone.

Let’s see how that breaks down:
-per year: 4,000,000
-per day (4.0 mil / 365): 10,958
-per hour (10.6 k / 24): 456
-per minute (456 / 60): 7.1
– And 7.1 per minute amounts to one every 8.5 seconds.

If you use 1957 as your base number, when 4,300,000 million boomers were born, that’s
a heck of a number!

During the Baby Boomer years, 1946-1964 (inclusive), 75.8 million Americans were born. The ratio of males to females has stayed relatively constant.

There were approximately 1.05 male births for every one female birth.

The middle class and baby boomers are beginning to realize that corporations and governments will not be here to save them in the end.

If you are like most people, you are likely already affected by one, two, or even three
of these massive converging trends. At a minimum, you likely know someone who is
affected.

People cannot afford to retire. In March 2012 Canada increased the age of retirement
to 67.

Now… The good news.

These 4 trends are actually working toward a 5th, ‘Perfect Storm’ kind of trend.

One that you can capitalize on in the very near future.

More on that later!

Believe me, the future isn’t so bleak…

Headache Getting You Down?

The first thing to do is consider the cause:

Dehydration may show up as a headache, tiredness, light headedness, nausea or anxiety.  If you experience any of these symptoms, drink 1 to 2 glasses of pure water and notice if you feel better.

If you have not eaten for a while you could be having a low blood sugar headache.  Eat something, but not the candy bar!  Try orange juice and a few crackers – the sugar and other “good stuff” in the juice will pick up sugar level and the crackers will reduce potential of crash.  Notice if you feel better.

For more ideas on headache management check out this article from Healthy Woman Bottom Line ed: Tamara Eberlein

3rd Global Trend National Debt

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle.

Today I will continue sharing information from him and talk about the third trend…

The National Debt

The U.S. national debt is so bizarre that it is hard to know whether to laugh about it or cry about it. The following are some quick facts about the U.S. government’s massive debt problem that will wipe any smile from any politician’s face. – As of December 1st, 2009, the official debt of the United States government was approximately 12.1 trillion dollars.

– To pay this 12.1 trillion dollar debt would require approximately $40,000 from every single person living in the United States.

– Now the U.S. Congress has approved an increase in the U.S. government debt cap to 14.3 trillion dollars. To pay this increase off would require approximately $6,000 more from every man, woman and child in the United States.

– The U.S. government’s debt ceiling has been raised six times since the beginning of 2006.

So how hard is it to spend a trillion dollars?

If you spent one dollar every second, you would have spent a million dollars in twelve days. At that same rate, it would take you 32 years to spend a billion dollars. But it would take you more than 31,000 years to spend a trillion dollars. We could do the same kind of list for most of the world’s industrialized countries.

Here’s the thing though…

Millions and millions of people are beginning to wake up to the reality of this “transitioning economy.” Governments are going to be forced to cut expensive social programs. People are losing faith in governments.

I don’t mean to make the future seem bleak or anything. I want to wake you up though.

The rosy red pictures and happy words that you hear on the news are false. They’re the bad guys.

They want you to believe that the world is recovering and everything is fine… But it’s really not. Not at all.

Later, I’m going to talk about the last trend that’s going to have a dramatic effect on your life in the next 5 or so years… And after that, we’re going to talk about what you and I can do to fix it!

2nd Global Trend: Underemployment

Recently I shared with you information from Jay Kubassek information about 4 global trends happening right now that are poised to help you create an Internet Lifestyle.

Today I will continue sharing information from him and talk about the second trend…

FACT: The stock market is where it was 10 years ago with economists calling this the “lost decade”

FACT: 50% unemployment amongst college grads of the last four years with an average income of $40,000 for those lucky enough to have found a job.

FACT: Nearly 30% of Americans “under water” where they owe more than their home is worth.

FACT: Household income is back to where it was ten years ago.  [Some of us have income significantly less than 10 years ago.]

FACT: First time in our nation’s history people feel their children won’t have a better life than they did.

Crazy, huh?

People now understand that it will be the sweat, creativity and passion of entrepreneurs who will build the new businesses, create the wealth and save this country. [Remember not everyone lost everything during the Great Depression – many entrepreneurs started out and flourished at that time.]

Even top MBA grads are shunning Wall Street and Corporate Americas to do start-ups and here’s why:

– “Job Security” no longer exists. Corporate and government layoffs and downsizing will
continue given economic realities and people are losing patience

– Unemployment rate at 8%+ with not much hope in sight. The long-term unemployed face an even more difficult reality, people are losing patience

– An additional 20% are “underemployed”

According to a recent Gallup poll, 31% of Americans think underemployment is the nation’s most important problem!

Combine that with the current state of the economy (and that of the foreseeable future),
people are beginning to realize that the only thing they can count on is themselves.

The jobs are not coming back and anything and anyone that can be replaced with a computer or outsourced to India – will be.

There is light at the end of the tunnel though!  We’ve got to get through the last two trends first.  More on that later!
