Sunday Night Update…

A quick update and a further explanation as we close out this week.

The programs are going to be amazing, and I have been busy finalizing the materials. If you thought the free materials were good, be prepared to be WOWed! They really are that good.

While I’ve been busy working on the content (from my home office-thank god!), everyone else in my organization is working at a frenzied pace dealing with the overwhelming demand that introducing 700 new clients into our company in less than a week has caused.

There are many of you that still need to be added to our customer database. If you are in the 11 week program and have not received any emails from us please email [email protected] with the subject line “Missing 11 Week.” If you are in the 12 month program, please be patient for now. We are adding the new clients from the 12 month program right now, and we expect to have the job done by the end of the week. (I have three people who are trusted to go through my merchant accounts and I have all three working on getting this done as we speak.)

The 11 week program is starting this week. The 12 month program will start the following week. I will have a lot more updates for everyone this week so make sure to stop by and read any new posts.

Speak to you all tomorrow…

p.s. – In the previous post I asked you to submit a comment if you haven’t received an email from us. Please only do so if you are in the 12 month program. If you are in the 11 week program please send an email to the email address I listed in the body copy of this post.

The Vultures Are Descending Already

So, I finally got some needed sleep.. opened my email box this morning to find:

1) A teleseminar for the internet marketing community about 7 secrets to a million dollar business being used to pitch some sort of program

2) A pitch for a 6 week teleseminar series on how to get the maximum leverage out of your internet business.

Then I opened an email from a friend and he had found two other promotions geared for the budding internet entrepreneur.

Unbelievable. I guess I should take it all as a compliment, but I don’t. I have spent years perfecting what I now teach, and it all has been proven time and time again. These Johnny-Come-Latelys are just opportunists trying to feed on my table scraps – and they’ll end up hurting the people who put trust in them.

So, if you are one of the people who couldn’t afford what I have offered, please do not go looking for some cheap option. Instead go through my free materials, study them, do your best to apply them and I will have more free materials for you. Yes, I will be busy but I would rather do some extra work and get you what you need, even if I give it away, then be at all responsible for you going down the wrong path with the wrong people.

I know what I’ve said here is controversial, but for 2 years I was the only one working on strategy and systems for internet businesses and within 4 hours of my launch ending all of sudden there are quite a few popping up, it really make me sick, and it should make you sick too.

If you read my work, you already know how important a role I feel your business plays is in your life. That’s why I get so worked up about this. The wrong advice could literally set you years back. Be careful, before you take anyone’s business building advice, see if they have testimonials from people your respect and whose success you would like to emulate. Make them prove to you that they’ve been focused on internet businesses – and that they’ve had more than 10 internet businesses as clients.

OK, I am finished with my rant. Now on to some housekeeping.

I have sent emails out to clients on both of my client lists. If you paid and did not receive an email I need to know about it. Just post a comment here using your preferred email address when you sign in (don’t put it in the body of your post) and we will contact you.

My oldest daughter Ava has a tennis lesson so I got to run, but sometime soon I am going to tell you why my daughter Ava (who is 4 years old) already makes more money than most internet marketers do all by herself (no help from her old man).

TGIF – Wow, I Am Really Happy It’s Friday

Was that a crazy ride or what?

It’s 12:30am, twelve and a half hours since we closed admission to my coaching program. I am still receiving requests to get in (we’ve been getting them all day) and the answer unfortunately is no. It’s not that we don’t have the room, but my staff and I have our hands full right now, and I would rather spend my time focusing on my clients. Also, I learned a long time ago that your word is very important – and I intend to keep mine. A deadline is a deadline.

To all my new clients – You will be hearing from me very shortly, and I am very excited to get started, I believe that you will see more of this group go on to bigger and better ventures then any other group I have worked with.

To all of you who couldn’t take part, I plan on releasing more free content for you, and in the very near future I will be sending out a link to a survey asking what it is you would like from me and what you would be willing to pay for it. If I get some good ideas that don’t diminish the value of what I am providing my clients and doesn’t require an inordinate amount of my time then I will certainly entertain it.

I had a meeting today with the group over at Agora, and I’ve got some awesome stuff planned that I am sure you are all going to flip out over. It’s not a 100% certain yet, but I might be doing a series of calls with some of the business people I respect and have learned the most from. If it ends up happening… you’ll be the first to know.

I need to get back to work right now – but I wanted to say thank you to everyone, it’s a humbling experience to see so many people moved by my work. I certainly want to give more too, and I will. But first I must attend to all my new clients and bring them into the fold.

Keep posting here too – I read every comment, some I respond to by email, some I chose to ignore, and some bring a smile to my face and let me know that all my hard work is worth it.

Good night all – and have a great weekend, and be on the lookout for my survey, I am sure we’ll put it out sometime next week.

PS – Did you see the video from the winner of the free hour with me? I gave him some suggestions that i know will multiply his short term and long term profits but his video testimonial is really over the top. I actually thought about sending it back to him and asking if he wouldn’t mind toning it down a little, but I asked a few people to tell me what they thought and they said you could tell he’s being genuine. I know he is – so I posted it (previous entry). What do you think?

150 Spots Sold In 2 Hours 14 Minutes

Unbelievable!

We sold out EVERY one of the 150 seats in just 2 hours and 14 minutes.

I’m honored and excited by the wonderful response to my coaching program. If you’re one of the select few who managed to slip in the door, then congratulations!

I can’t wait to get ‘into the trenches’ with you and rework your business to achieve the results you’ve always dreamed about.

For those of you who arrived at my door, only to find it had been slammed shut, I want you to know that I have NOT forgotten about you.

Anyway, I’ve got a lot of work to do, so I’ve got to run. Thanks to everyone for a fantastic start to one of the most elite marketing clubs in existance!

Front Of The Line Pass Available Tomorrow

As you’re well aware, the buzz surrounding the launch of my coaching program has reached a deafening level. I have my secretary and two virtual assistants working TEN hours per day running the phones and answering email.

It’s gotten to the point where two people called the office this week trying to BRIBE my secretary, in order to reserve a spot in the program.

At this point, I realize I’ve GOT to do something in order to stay in control of my office.

Otherwise we will not be able to get ANY work done over the next few days leading up to the launch. I have way too much work to do, and these distractions are preventing me from taking care of my many other priorities.

So here’s what I’ve decided to do.

I’m going to issue “front of the line” passes for those of you who just CANNOT wait to get a head start into my exclusive coaching program.

Now, there are over 36,832 people on the edge of their seats waiting patiently to hear more about my program. But in order to gain some semblance of peace in my office, I’m going to issue 1,500 “front-of-the-line” passes.

TOMORROW AT NOON, I’m going to give you the location where you’ll be able to enter your name and email address to get a pass.

This pass entitles you to a ONE HOUR head start on everyone else. You’ll be able to view the coaching offer on Tuesday, July 18th at 11AM. That way, you’ll have just a bit more time to see if the program is right for you.

I realize this will upset a number of people who are not able to get a pass. But I NEED to find a solution to my chaotic office.

So make SURE you set an alarm to go off at 11:55AM tomorrow so that you will be reminded to check your email. There is a VERY good chance that those who are issued a front of the line pass will take up all the spots. So don’t miss tomorrow’s email.

From A One Man Office To 150k

I’ve interviewed a few coaching club members who were kind enough to spill the beans, and tell the world how my coaching program has DRAMATICALLY altered their business for the better.

Before I tell you how powerful this call is, I want to give you some special instructions.

I want you to listen to this call through a ‘filter.’ Since you’ve read the Manifesto and the Missing Chapter, I want you to keep those concepts at the top of your mind when you listen to my client discuss his INCREDIBLE path to a personal fortune.

Tonight’s call is with my client Mike Filsaime. And before you say, ‘well all his money was generated from the launch of Butterfly Marketing,’ I want to make one point.

When Mike started in my coaching program he was doing $15,000 a month. Fast forward 16 months later, he brought in over $150,000 with only 8% (about $10,000) coming from Butterfly Marketing.

Mike is a VERY sharp and VERY gracious guy. You will learn a TON as Mike walks you through step by step from working all alone to building a real Interent based business.

After listening to the MP3 and reading the transcripts, please post your thoughts here. If you did not receive the email with a link to the download (and you’re on my list) please let us know on this thread.

P.S DON’T FORGET to get your Front-Of-The-Line Pass tomorrow at NOON Eastern. You’ll be able to watch the firestorm LIVE, in real-time on the page as people start to flood the site in hopes of getting a pass.
