Have you ever heard the expression “Facts tell, Stories sell”?
It’s an expression that’s used quite a bit in advertising, sales and marketing, and for good reason.
People make buying decisions emotionally, and rarely does someone get emotionally engaged with a list of facts or features.
A story on the other hand, when told well allows people to get emotionally engaged, and much more receptive to the offer you’ll eventually make.
People want to know, like and trust the people they do business with, and telling stories is a great way to build that K-L-T factor.
Let me illustrate that point with this short video by one of my mentors.
There’s a reason less than 5 percent of people who get started with a home business ever become top producers, and it’s because they don’t follow the formula!
Actually, to be honest, 90% of them don’t even get started.
In fact, of 1000 people that start a home business 900 won’t do much more than call a couple of friends or family and get rejected, and then quit.
Of the 100 who do take some action, half of those still won’t get any sizable results.
Only a handful will ever produce a full time income and just a few will create true financial freedom.
Now that I’ve painted such a rosy picture, let’s have a look at why that is.
It’s called human nature. How many people in any other type of business achieve monumental success?
Again, just a few. 90% of people are either just getting by or are “comfortable” whatever that means.
Today I want to share with you the actual formula to become a top producer in your home business.
Today I had the great pleasure of having one of today’s top entrepreneurs Neil Patel join me on the Mentor’s MasterClass.
Neil Patel is the co-founder of Crazy Egg and Hello Bar. He helps companies like Amazon, NBC, GM, HP and Viacom grow their revenue. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web, Forbes says he is one of the top 10 online marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says he created one of the 100 most brilliant companies in the world. He was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and one of the top 100 entrepreneurs under the age of 35 by the United Nations. Neil has also been awarded Congressional Recognition from the United States House of Representatives.

Someone shared this lovely poem with me earlier today.
It reminded me that it’s truly important to love yourself first. Without self love, life will be a struggle.
There’s a saying that says if our friends talk to us the way we talk to ourselves, we wouldn’t have any friends, and it’s so true!

Rhonda Swan and the Unstoppable Family is a story I’ve been following for a few years now.
I don’t remember for sure when I first became aware of this high energy bride and her surfer dude husband (and cuter than ever daughter), but their story certainly got my attention.
Here was a couple of former corporate slaves turned family who had sold off all of their worldly possessions and set out on a (planned) 2 year trip to see the world and tell their story online.
Well, it’s now more than 7 years later, and they’ve lived in and traveled to countless countries and been to all but one continent on the planet so far. (Although their daughter has her sights set on achieving the 7th soon!)
Today, they live in Bali Indonesia, and have built a multiple 6 figure business online.
They live life on their own terms, and inspire and coach others from around the world to do the same.
Enjoy the interview! I know I will!
The good news is, there are a million ways you can get traffic to your website.
The bad news is, there are a million ways and who has time to learn and implement them all!
Today I want to share with you a really simple way to get super targeted traffic to your website
On my way to pick up my kids after school I was listening to a great audio CD from one of my mentors T. Harv Eker where he shared his Formula For Manifestation.
It’s so simple, and yet profound, so I shot this quick video to share it with you.
The idea of a $100 Startup being a viable business probably sounds like a fantasy doesn’t it.
Consider this though.
Right now, someone, somewhere is yearning for and seeking to solve a problem you know how to overcome.
You, of course don’t think much of it because you’ve already solved the problem for yourself, and maybe it was even something you just do without even thinking. It just comes naturally to you.
But for most of the world, knowing how to do what you do would be a blessing. They’re out there looking for someone that can show them how, or do it for them.
That’s where your opportunity lies.
That’s where your freedom lies.
Harnessing that gift, and packaging it in a way that others can pay you for your expertise.
Not sure what I mean? Have a look at this quick video I just shot that explains it.
One of the things many people struggle with when they get started blogging, is coming up with great content to share.
Not everyone is a natural writer that can just hammer out a 2000 word article in their niche every day or two.
For some, being able to share great blog content they didn’t even have to write would be a huge blessing.
The good news, it can be done!
I started on my journey to becoming a master of manifestation almost 8 years ago now when I first heard about a little documentary that swept the globe.
It was shortly after my son was born, and the Ellen show was on.
Two guys I had never heard of were her guests and they started talking about this new film they were in called The Secret.
Although I had never heard of it, the things they were talking about really got my attention. (here’s what they shared)
