An Ode to Entrepreneurs on Canada Day

This is for you if you’re an entrepreneur (or one in the
making)…

We are the dreamers.

The visionaries.

The doers.

We are your neighbors.

Your friends.

Or your family.

We pursue our dreams, rather than letting them die a slow death.

We’ve learned to ignore the negative people in our lives.

We know we are different.

And we relish in it.

We are unemployable.

We are good people.

We are writers.
Artists.
Technicians.
Directors and creatives.

We have a disdain for bureaucracy and red tape.

We love to build and enjoy our creations.

We are most definitely off the wall.

…Yet the most sane of them all.

We are passionate about our trade.

Yet we realize most people would never leave the ‘security’
of a job to live their dreams like we do.

We are the biggest employers out there.

We stick to it, amidst economic turmoil and media frenzied trash
talking.

Thank the entrepreneurs that you know.

Tell them to keep on plugging and building.

Embrace the entrepreneurial spirit.
canada
…We are the future.

Happy Canada Day!

In Canada, the US, or pretty well anywhere – be VERY worried about Obama’s email

First off, I live in Canada and do not claim to know the
intricacies of American politics.

But I do know Canada is also in trouble right now.

So is much of the world.

This is not about politics – this is about YOU and YOUR FAMILY.

I heard about Obama’s email that went out today about the
likely sequester of government funds…:

“Prepare yourself for job layoffs, reduced access to early
education, slower emergency response, slashed health care, and more
people living on the street……If Congress fails to act, we’d see budget cuts pretty much
across the board to critical services that teachers, first
responders, seniors, children, and our men and women in uniform
rely on every day….”

I know on top of that, I have been doing a TON of research for a
client that produces information products that help people in times
of trouble.

It’s SCARY out there!

No matter what your beliefs are about the political scene in your
country…

…RIGHT NOW is the time you need to start planning ahead.

No matter what happens with the wayyyyy-out-of-control spending and
debt in much of the world.

I WOULD HOPE IT’S OBVIOUS TO YOU…

…the ONLY ONE in control of your well-being is you.

Not your local politicians.

Not the media.
Not the lobbyists.YOU.

And if are sitting back just waiting to see what happens, it’s
already too late for you.

Now is your time to get proactive and to put together some action
plans to create a lifestyle for you and your family.

Waiting for the government to spend a billion or ten more won’t
help.

Waiting for a raise from your boss isn’t exactly a proactive
strategy.

Waiting for things to “turn around” in the economy
isn’t what I call an intelligent strategy.

So what is?

Doing something RIGHT NOW that can improve your situation.

Maybe it’s a new product line you create.

Maybe it’s that new business you wanted to start.

Maybe it’s time you get TEN TIMES as much marketing out the door
as you did last year.Maybe it’s time to quit that job you detest so you can make the
changes you’ve always wanted to make.When things are a roller coaster ride for me, I shake them up.  

I make MASSIVE changes happen.

I did it 14 months ago and some amazing things have happened to me.

You may or not know, I have fallen head over heals for the awesome
training and community that Empower Network provides.

Best damn training for tapping into the pure power of making money
online – no matter what product or service you sell.

Bar none.

After 11 years I feel qualified to share and back that
statement. Their training and commission is UNMATCHED.

If you want a community of people who are doing BIG THINGS.

People who are mastering the ability to get traffic to websites,
the skills to turn that traffic into leads.

People are are making a fantastic living doing so.

12 minutes of your time

12 minutes of your time

Then maybe it’s time you invest 12 minutes just to see what I
see. http://marketingbeachbum.com/12-minutes/

And maybe it isn’t for you… but I highly recommend you put
some SERIOUS thought into the next 6 months.
The governments will continue to spend far more than they bring in.I guarantee it.

The majority of people will continue to spend more than they earn.

I guarantee it.

But right there in front of your eyes are some opportunities to BE
different.To DO things differently.To THINK and ACT like an entrepreneur on a mission.

More of us out there CAN make a difference.

How you get there is up to you…

…I love this way myself
http://marketingbeachbum.com/12-minutes/Maybe it IS for you?Troy

PS: I hope for some wild reason I am wrong and overnight all the
politicians out there will magically come to their senses and stop
destroying us through their overspending and debt accumulation.

Ya right.

Ha ha ha ha.

I choose to take control and DO SOMETHING about it.

I hope you do too.

Online Marketing Success and Black Belt Sales Mastery

My upcoming Second Degree Black Belt test and marketing in business have some very similar lessons to share.

Pay attention to this and you may discover some simple rules to help make 2013 your best year yet!

Why would I invest 324 hours, well over $3700, many pulled muscles into one more itty bitty gold stripe like this?

BECAUSE I LOVE IT!

For over 6 years now I have been training hard in Tae Kwon Do… and prior to that spend another 7 years in other martial arts.

On December 15th, 2012 I will be testing for my second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

Assuming all goes good – that one stripe will become two stripes.

And the lessons in this belt apply directly to business and marketing.

One of my biggest lessons?

Drop outs everywhere! It is amazing to me to see how quickly and easily people give up.

The second big lesson? It’s all about the basics. If you can’t do the basics proficiently… the rest are useless.  That means thousands of round house kicks. Back Kicks.  Punches and patterns.  In business that means your ability to generate traffic to a website, or a lead from website traffic, or a conversion system in place to convert that lead to a paying client.

Once you have spent time on the basics and can do them consistently… then you need self motivation to continue doing the basics while you learn some more advanced techniques.

LOTS of bloody noses, scrapes, pulled muscles and broken bones.  I studied Muay Thai for 5 years and loved it.  But it beat the crap out of me!

Its all about the RUSH. Anyone who enjoys adrenaline sports knows the rush I am talking about.  It is awesome and once you understand its power to focus you – you ‘chase the dragon’ time and time again.

What in the heck does that mean to you right now in your life or business?

First – I need your prayers!  I have to break 2 bricks at once with this hand on the 15th – and do my least favorite back spinning kick to break a board held high.  Pray I don’t break my hand and pull some much need muscles! Please?

Kidding.

It means I have a plan for you. 

One I have been working on for almost 11 years.  One that has made me a great amount of money inside of the Empower Network.  And one that can make you a great income in 2013 too.

Like exercise, most people wait until there is a serious problem before they do something about their health. January one they join the gyms – and quit 2 weeks later.

Right back to where they were before.

The same goes for money.  Do you have all you want or need? Me neither.  But I took a proven product and plan, and have built an incredible team of fellow beach bums who LOVE making money and want to make more of it.

Don’t wait till January 1 to start.  Lets get you going NOW.  Start with $25. Then you have 3 weeks in December to get warmed up and ready to start rolling.

As always, please let your thoughts and comments below!

Randy Gage and his poisonous new book “Risky is The New Safe”

Randy Gage brought out a new book which is thought provoking poison

…it’ll infect you, one way or another.

It got me.

Randy Gage’s new book, “Risky is The New Safe” is totally infectious.

randy-gage-risky-is-the-new-safe

Randy Gage’s new book… Awesome!

Be warned…

…it might hurt.

Risky is The New Safe will stretch your ability to think in a whole new way.

And it may not feel good.

I warned you.

I LOVED IT.

First, I had the privilege to meet and hear Randy Gage live in Calgary.  For a couple hours, we were brought deep into the world of contrarian thinking.

For entrepreneurs and marketers… a wet dream.

For contrarians… multiple orgasms.

We discussed the trained monkeys in Phuket, and their future impact on businesses of all kinds.

Or the virtual reality sex suit talk.

Wow.

Little known Troy fact: many moons ago I went to my bank with a proposal to do mobile virtual reality trailers.  I had drawings and concepts around these trailers full of virtual reality machines. I would take them around from event to event and rent the use out to parties.  Bank liked it.  I never did it.  Always have believed that when true virtual reality does come out to its fullest potential (and it will, in our lifetime) its a game changer.

After Randy’s talk, I went home and read cover to cover his new book.

•    Wall Street Journal #1 Best Selling Business Book
•    New York Times Best Seller
•    USA Today #1 Money Best Seller

Eye opener, to say the least.

Great job Randy!

Best book I have read in a long, long time.

And I love to read.

If you care about your future, your finances, or just want to try and make some sense out of this sometimes crazy world… read this book.

Just read it.

Cover to cover.

THEN tell me if I’m right.

You may not agree with every point in the book…

…but it sure will expand your mind and give you a new way to think about the world around you.

Print – http://www.randygage.com/riskyisthenewsafe/
Digital – http://ca.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-111848147X,descCd-buy.html

Highly recommended is not saying enough.

Serial ‘millers’ and the wake of disaster they leave behind

According to the Macmillan dictionary, to mill around is to “move about in large numbers in a confused way with no particular purpose”.

Kinda sounds like the zombies in The Walking Dead…zombies-walking-dead

…and it kinda sounds like a whole lotta people I talk to out there.

Serial ‘millers’.

Wandering from ebook to ebook, launch formula home study product to pinterest how-to guides.

One week they are milling about the make a gazillion on Facebook forums

…the next week it’s all about learning the newest and greatest Youtube marketing tricks.

Learning is good.

Milling is NOT.

The difference?

One word…

…ACTION.

Serial millers NEVER take action (except for clicking the buy buttons on the shiny-object-of-the-week).

They had hard drives crammed with digital ebooks and home study course (never review them of course).

They have book shelves packed solid with courses still in the wrappers.

They have all this pretend knowledge they could (and some do) write a book of their own on what they learned from those shiny ebooks they bought.

But they never put a serious effort into actually building a list of interested prospects.

They never actually WRITE emails or copy – they just read about it.

They never actually try and GET a suite ranked on Google – they just point to their Google Engage certificate they got by… you’re right… taking a training course.

LEARNING IS NOT THE SAME AS DOING.

If you have been milling about, you have left wakes of credit card debts, broken dreams, and frustrated spouses behind you.

 

Isn’t it time you get off your big-ole-bookshelf and DO SOMETHING?

Anything?

Start actually building a database you can market to and share your wisdom with.

Start actually running sales funnels and advertising campaigns.

Start actually driving interested prospects to squeeze pages, to landing pages, to your video sales letters.

2012 is almost over people.

If you aren’t anywhere near where you thought you’d be by now…

…maybe NOW is the time to get off your milling machine and start DOING.

Serial killers and serial millers both leave destruction behind.

It’s your choice to make… keep on destroying your dreams… or start rebuilding the life you’ve always wanted.

I made 2012 my year for massive change…

…and I’m here to help you do the same for the balance of 2012 and the brand new shiny 2013 just ahead of us.

Stop milling and start making.

I’m here to help… and this is the fastest and most profitable way I can kick your butt into high gear so you CAN build lists, write more, and earn a whole bunch more than you are now! http://www.marketingbeachbum.com
