Introduction
What do you want? What is it you really want out of life? Why did you decide to download this report today? Those are the questions. Aren’t they? What can the Internet do for you, your family, and your life that’s never been available before? The answer to that question is likely why you’re here. It’s funny. If you start searching for things like internet business, internet marketing, or make money online, you’ll find thousands of sites promising you almost instant riches from the internet. They’re lying to you…because they know it’s such an enticing pitch. They promise you simply have to buy their product – and money will automatically flow into your bank account. No work required. Or simply follow their proven foolproof system. It’s as easy as pie. The reality for most people is radically different. That dream of a passive online income turns into a nightmare of wasted hours and money, chasing the elusive dream of automatic effortless income. The $47 leads to multiple $1,997 purchases…as you tell your spouse this next one will be different. Maybe this one contains the secret I’ve been looking for. I was just missing one little piece. They’re really selling HOPE. People hope for a better life. The majority of us believe there is an easier way. Others are successful online. And many of them make it look effortless. Why can’t you do it? Why are there so many roadblocks in the way keeping you from

your dreams and the lifestyle you know you deserve? In this report, I’m not just going to share hope. I’m not going to try to sell you on another set of secrets. Instead I’m going to share the truth with you…and no matter how radical that truth sounds to you, it is the answer you’re looking for. This report can open the door to the Internet Lifestyle for you – if you’re willing to do what it takes. And the first step here is to have an open mind. Some of the information I provide you with here may not agree with everyone else you’ve heard. You may have to drop some of your expectations for “quick money” online as it takes time to build a real business. You may hear me talk about “hard work” which all those quick and easy sales letters avoid like the plague. I also promise you the strategy revealed here will require you to grow as a person. To reach the success you want will require change on your part. And that’s not always easy. Jim Rohn said… “If y ou go to work on y our goals, y our goals will go to work on y ou. If y ou go to work on y our plan, y our plan will go to work on y ou. Whatev er good things we build end up building us.” Your online goals will change you as a person. There is no shortcut or other way around it. To get from where you are today to where you want to be is going to require you to experience new things, to change, and to grow as a person. You will be a totally different person one year from today if you follow my advice. Your lifestyle can be totally different within the next one to three years. Opps…you might have noticed it above. I didn’t say your lifestyle would be totally different next week. I said it takes one to three years to make the change. It could take even longer…especially if you fight with the personal change required inside yourself. OK. We’ve now eliminated all those “easy money” wannabees from the report. I could almost hear the rush as people left this report to go back to their internet search. That $10,000 seminar sounds so much more enticing if they’re willing to tell you what you want to hear…all about the overnight riches. There are

I worked all kinds of odd jobs including delivering newspapers for the local Palladium-Item newspaper. Today we have high speed internet. it’s pretty simple. My wife must be an angel of patience as she suffered through all of it while I built up a collection of failed business opportunities in the basement. We were in debt.

Today automated online tools do most of this work. But unlike what many preach to you. I put up the ads. I sent them reports. In addition you can hire outsourced fulfillment and workers to help you in the process. Since there wasn’t any automation I did almost everything by hand. The very first product I sold online were some items I bought licenses to such as self-help VHS videos (videos of people like Bill Myers. this doesn’t eliminate all your work. In the very beginning.

And 6 months in business was moving quite smoothly as I learned how to have my email list managed with software on my computer (no more individually emailing out reports). I also included sales pieces for those products I was selling. I put up little ads on Compuserve message boards and people would email me for a free report. You are the CEO of your company. Those reports were sent INDIVIDUALLY as I didn’t have a sequential autoresponder like we have today (the autoresponders we use today automatically build an email list and contact them for you). and pr agent.

You don’t need a million dollar budget or a large staff to get started.

Momentum is working for you… But unlike many who leave momentum to chance. They don’t answer email. I don’t use it to answer email. they sit down in front of that computer and write.

Expect it and take advantage of it. It’s painful to stare at that page. You’ll refine it once you get feedback from your visitors and customers. That’s part of how I’ve trained my brain that it’s time to write. Those little pistons in your brain get all corroded and out of practice. your brain will come into alignment and get moving with you. Your stupid head will try to tell you that you don’t have anything to say. Inspiration doesn’t just magically appear. Your brain works quite a bit like an engine. Don’t allow it for a second.

Is your goal to have a large growing multi-million dollar business with multiple employees or a smaller. It’s hard to stop it once it has made its way past the starting point.com Page 13 . This isn’t an excuse to put out shoddy products. You’re like an old freight train. Improvements come as it hits 1. Momentum will keep pushing you forward even when you relax on the power you’re putting out. You can hear the strain as it starts. they’d never know it was perfect or not until customers got their hands on it and found every way possible to break it (beta tests don’t find all the problems). You have to get it out there and moving before you can ever perfect it. It takes a lot of power to get those wheels turning in the beginning. But what if they waited until the software was perfect first? First of all. You know where you’re at right now. Have you sat there and watched as an old train gets started. the momentum will carry with through. Get moving and get momentum behind you. But once it’s moving.MyMarketingCoach.

They have a vision they want to see happen. They also would be happy to never move out of their home office. they enjoy the work they’re personally doing and don’t ever want to “promote themselves” out of it into managing others. They have NO desire to have any direct employees (they use outsourced workers only). but they have the dream of moving into their office with multiple employees surrounding them and pushing the vision forward. The lifestyle guru is of a completely different mindset.Growth Mavens Versus Lifestyle Gurus I first heard the terms “growth mavens” and “lifestyle gurus” from the book “The Home Office From Hell Cure” by Jeffrey A. It’s a great book that covers a lot of the mistakes people make when working at home. Landers. Simply put. Talk about a big corporate office and they’ll be sick to their stomachs. They’re ambitious and see themselves someday competing with the Fortune 500 companies out of a lush corporate office.com Page 15 .MyMarketingCoach. They want to employ people from their community and motivate them to push forward with the vision. Basically there are two kinds of entrepreneurs: growth mavens and lifestyle gurus. They may start today out of a home office to keep the expenses down. Free Internet Lifestyle Audio: http://www. And they’re totally fine with the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs of the world earning more who are willing to take on that corporate responsibility. They might not make millions per year but they can earn a very respectable six figure income and possibly even push a little way into the seven figure level. In addition. That is not a part of their vision or their plan for business. they wouldn’t be satisfied to “stay small” and stay in their home office. The growth maven is the kind of entrepreneur who has the big dream.

In fact. They wanted to hire an employee instead (even with all the hassles I see involved there). Which Personality Are You? If you don’t decide which type of entrepreneur you are and build your business accordingly. and they wouldn’t feel the company’s vision is “big enough. I’m 100% on the lifestyle guru side. one of the most exciting elements for a lifestyle guru personality is when you can generate royalties. They wouldn’t feel like they have enough control over the workers. and passive income coming in from work you’ve done in the past.MyMarketingCoach. Employees – yuck. long-term commissions. Even if the company was bringing in $20 million a year. By the way. It surprised me that anyone would choose to have employees.Personally.com Page 16 . Everyone else had all these huge visions and these big growth plans. For example. I enjoy what I do. I would encourage someone to hire an outsourced worker. what if I took someone who was a clear growth maven and tried to stick them into my home business where I don’t have a single official employee (outsourced workers many of them in foreign countries such as the Philippines)? They’d likely go stir crazy. And along the same lines. having a “growth maven” company would be insanity for me. it would be a nightmare. There have been years where my plans were how I was going to slow down the number of clients in one element of my business or sell that portion off to someone else. And I love coaching clients. I love writing. If I had to go into an office and be responsible for two dozen employees (even with a professional manager you are still “responsible” in the end) along with working long corporate hours. this was confusing to me at first. because it’s a radically different personality from me. but they weren’t happy. for a couple of years I felt there was something wrong with me. you can end up building someone else’s dream business. That’s their bread and butter.” Since I coach entrepreneurs of both types. I love producing videos. Just the thought of having them around makes me upset. That’s why I’ve had to learn how to use virtual assistants and technology to grow the business even when I’m not working. since I’m fully on the lifestyle guru side. Free Internet Lifestyle Audio: http://www. I’d still HATE my life because it’s not me…or what I want.

How do you see your company? Are you still working full-time at home or do you also have an office you possibly go into a couple times a week? Do you have staff or is everything outsourced? Are you a well known brand or do you have a smaller number of clients and a good reputation? Have you built an enduring legacy out of your business or do you simply have consistent creative work with a collection of customers who enjoy what you do? Most of the time. Not everyone is like you…and everyone has their own vision for what they want out of their business. Then build your business based on a life you’ll love. Let your imagination run free. And your lifestyle may not be what I want for myself.MyMarketingCoach. the lifestyle guru would give up in frustration or run for the hills if they had to have the corporate structure the growth maven wants to build. Don’t let anyone else’s dream for your business cloud your senses…and cause you to build a monster you don’t want. With good training they can be MORE productive than the outsourced workers. On the other side. Because it’s not just about the money – it’s about the lifestyle you live.Yet I’ve seen the results they get from having employees. It’s not their dream and it’s not affecting/helping enough people. Decide which lifestyle fits you best. the growth maven would consider what the lifestyle guru wants as failure. Which one are you…and what type of business is right for you? Free Internet Lifestyle Audio: http://www. And they fit the growth maven’s personality and vision. It’s not big enough. Let’s say we time travel 5 or 10 years into the future. It’s an important lesson.com Page 17 .

it’s important to take the step above because you might find some businesses just don’t fit the mold you want. This means more than anything else that you must have a native curiosity about the subject. are you passionate about the subject? Notice I didn’t ask if you’re a premier expert on the subject.com Page 18 . You’re curious and want to keep digging. What if I have an idea for a business. For example. Of course you can innovate and bring in new ideas. If I have a growth maven personality. In addition. but when I look in the top ten of the Google results (both free and paid) and notice every single one of them has a phone sales process? They collect leads and have people follow-up in a long series to make the sale. I’ll build up my in house sales team and build that business. I’ve done many products as interviews both in doing a group of different experts and also digging in deep with one expert. You don’t have to be “the expert” today. And that’s the key. whatever you see is likely what you will have to build to be successful in this field.Intersection of Passion and Profits The next step after figuring out what type of business you want to build is figuring out what business you should be in. The business model needed in that market is important to what you choose. because your expertise will grow in anything you focus on for years.MyMarketingCoach. Free Internet Lifestyle Audio: http://www. You don’t have to be the expert to create the product. but consider your future business by what you see today. It’s the most practical and honest way to look at what your future holds. If I don’t have a contact to help me set this up. When you look at your competition (top ten in Google and then on the Adwords side). Let’s say you want to create an information product in the subject (my favorite business model). Even though very few people cover it. You could find a collection of experts and do an interview series. this likely isn’t a business concept I’ll pursue on day one. But if I’m the lifestyle guru type. More than likely I’d need to partner with a call center to go deeper in this project. remember you will be dealing with this subject for years to come. that means I’ll likely have to team up with an outside call center. that’s fine. on the next few pages you’ll see that I like to research my market first and see what the competitors are doing.

Although your school is going to be the school of life here the commitment is very similar. You’re back now. hobbies. and interests as guides. What is it you want to “major in” for your business? Unless you’ve already chosen your subject. DON’T judge them yet. Next you’ll ask yourself the question. So I took advantage of my curiosity for the subject and really dug in deep to find out every step in the process.For example I did a 4 hour interview with Fred Gleeck on how to do interviews (available at http://www. Just let all the ideas flow using your work experience. Use the judge of curiosity as the road map. Hopefully you did your first assignment and you have a list of possibilities (none of which have been marked off yet). This report will be waiting for you until you get back.
