Weed, black-eyes, and a Black Belt… 2017 in review

Another year has come and gone and a brand new opportunity is in front of us.

2017 for me was a year of health.

I focused less on launching new products and services, and more on pushing my physical limits and teaching others to follow.

It was an awesome year for me.

…2 Gold Medals at WKU Canadian Nationals
…2 Bronze Medals at WKU Worlds in Ireland
…36 fights total (including tournament fights)

…black eyes
…sore muscles
…my Black Belt in Muay Thai (praciat)
…and a shit eating grin

I loved competing so much…training so much…and achieving my Black Belt in Muay Thai after 8.5 years of training (4 years recently, the other 4 was a couple decades ago).

But I missed writing you guys and gals.

I missed finding golden stories in business to share.

Showcasing people with a wicked story, that leveraged it to make their business boom.

So… my Plans for 2018 include:

…training less but more focused training (I was training 10-15 hours a week – at 49 yrs of age!)

…getting back to writing and sharing marketing ideas that could help you build your business

…building value in the 2018 Cash Flow Calendar to be even more no-brainer-brilliant-investment worthy http://www.ultimatecashflowcalendar.com (you get my story selling course now – along with bi-weekly webinar!)

…and to focus on a niche health product I grew to love, and am building a major business on. 

With all the training I do and have done, aches and pains were a way of life.

But I was popping FAR TOO MANY Extra strength Advils.

…Which I hated.

Never was one for prescription pills, but Advils I would take.  And it was getting bad on more real sore days/weeks.  I have issues with my Facet joints in my lower spine.  The more kicking I do, the more I hurt.  But I love my Muay Thai, so lived with the pain.

But hated popping pills.

I was taking 6-8 Advils a day on my bad days…

…FAR too much.

So I started taking Hemp CBD oils to reduce the pain.cbd oil, cannabidioil, hemp oil

And they did


Within a few days I dropped Advils all together.

Haven’t gone back since.

Plus a slew of other things I’ve noticed since taking the oils…

Sleep. Focus. Calmness.

Healing speed.

All better.

Now, I’ve been an advocate of marijuana for healing my entire adult life.

Now that’s it medically legal most places now, and recreationally in a growing number of countries, I see a major trend in 2018.

People are finally putting an end to the absolute NONSENSE they’ve been fed by the government and pharmaceutical companies.

They don’t believe them anymore.

People can open their computer, do a quick search, and find all the evidence they could ever need on the medical benefits to marijuana, hemp, thc, and cbd.

Studies are being done.

Clinic research being completed.

The World Health Organization FINALLY admitting the benefits of healing oils like CBD oils.

And yes, I’m building a business with this product because I am a believer in it – I see a massive need out there for this product (my mom is next in line to see the health benefits she desperately needs).

So many people I talk to now in the average day that are in pain.  That suffer needlessly.  That had no choice but to take excessive pharmaceuticals for pain, anxiety, digestive issues, sleep issues, seizures, cancer, etc.

…and yet there’s a simple all-natural way to reduce many health issues.

Which brings me to a couple points I wanted to make about marketing in 2018.

I did some really fun marketing campaigns over the past year… and into the first week and a half in 2018.

I saw some AMAZING results from a very specific type of Facebook campaign.

I got down and dirty on some targeting techniques.

I marketed inside some diverse niches, and will continue to this year.

I learned:

* Keep your eyes and ears open for amazing and timely opportunities.  Crypto is one of them that you’ve probably heard lots about.  CBD oils is another one – Forbes says it will match or exceed crypto returns this year!

* Niche marketing is da’bomb! When you get used to marketing in fairly well-known industries – you seen a certain level of interest with properly targeted prospects.  Add a niche in there with a HOT, HOT market opportunity and those results go sky rocketing.

* Look far outside your regular industry for innovative marketing ideas – THOSE are where true breakthroughs happen

* Drop the ego and beliefs every once in a while.  It get’s very expensive to keep a holier-than-though attitude when it comes to marketing certain products or services, in specific ways.  

Try new things – things you never would have tried in 2017 – and watch your whole world turn for the better!

LAST… follow the proven methodologies that work for online ‘internet marketing’, but use those techniques outside of the IM info product space for rapid results and monetization.

One GREAT story can be a huge source of leads and sales!

I wrote one of these late December for a project I’m working on and am sooooo excited about the results I’m seeing.

If you are looking for a new income stream, leveraging a HOT HOT market opportunity, and a wicked sales system, then hit reply and let me know.

I am all about trying new things and marketing in diverse niches this year… and I got a great one for you if you’re interested.

If you’re not looking for new income streams, AT LEASt try some out-of-the-box marketing ideas!

Have a great day.
