The truth is some 95% of people who
start a home business fail and there are
many reasons behind why this number
exists, but the biggest, in my opinion,
is blindly following what you’re told to
do until you’re broke.
It’s not so smart, but we tend to get
caught in the emotional struggle for
greatness and want to believe more than
see things for the way they really are.
It happened to me, and it wasn’t an easy
or fun lesson, but what turned it all
around was thinking outside of the box
and going with my gut instead of what I
was told. I urge you to the same now:

In business, time quickly becomes your
most valuable asset.
How much is your time worth to you?
I mean . . .
Do you REALLY want to be chasing down
and cold calling leads that could care
less about you and your business or
would you rather spend your time dealing
with people that are not only interested
in your business, but actually take
action and join before you even speak to
I’ve done both, and take my word for it,
the second option is where the money is
It’s about working smart not hard, you
know that, but …

Great question right?
I’m sure you’ve dealt with this
situation if you’ve had any sort of
tenure as a network marketer.
I mean you do all the research, you find
a business that you think is a perfect
fit for you, you do the research to find
a great sponsor, and then when you think
everything is matched up perfectly you
You get in and then you get very little
support from your upline!
You don’t know what to do or where turn
and you start to feel like you’re in
this thing all alone.
Well I’m going to tell you something
that I’m guessing you’ve never heard
Well as someone that was in a network
marketing company with a great sponsor
and in a network marketing company with
virtually no sponsor I’ve seen things
from both sides.
So let me explain why you’re lucky. . .
When I started with network marketing I
was sure to dot all my eyes and cross
all my tees.
I found a good sponsor and what I
thought to be a good system.
I did everything I was taught to do and
seven a half months later I had no
My second run in network marketing I
found a company I liked without regards
to the sponsor and joined.
(In fact, I’ve never spoken to my
sponsor once – I think he’s somewhere in
And now years later I’ve got a thriving
organization that grows by 10 to 15
people a day like clockwork without any
direct upline support.
If we looked at the situation
objectively based on my results the
obvious conclusion would be that going
in without a sponsor is the way to go.
Now I’m not going to say that is totally
true, but . . .
Going into a business without a strong
sponsor does have its advantages.
It forces you to go out into the world
without expectations and without their
system and figure it out for yourself.
You’re forced into a leadership role.
You have to find what works for you and
if you don’t there’s nothing to lean on,
so it’s really a do or die situation!
You’re forced to go to school and learn.
You have to buy books and information
from those who have been more successful
than you and then create your own system
out of it.
You have to be independent.
If you have a good sponsor you can get
You can rely to heavily on their system
and their promise of its effectiveness.
You have a scape goat for when it
So when you don’t see the success you
thought you deserved from all your hard
work it’s NOT your fault, it’s your
sponsors fault, it’s your company’s
(At least in your own mind.)
All I’m saying is, if you’re going to be
successful in network marketing your
sponsor has little to do with it.
He or she can shorten your learning
curve, but it’s up to each and every one
of use to define our path to success and
become our own leader.

In the shower this morning, I started
thinking about that old saying …
“Money can’t buy happiness.”
And I wondered …
Why would anyone say or believe
something like that?
Now, I don’t think that money itself
produces eternal joy or anything like
After all …
Look at any of the countless tales of
despair attached to winners of those
mega millions lotteries over the years.
Littered amongst them you’ll find
heightened levels of greed, gluttony,
powerful jealousy, and colors of the
rainbow of sin, and they ALL tend to
result in less than positive outcomes,
I do believe that you unequivocally CAN
Let me tell you why …
I can remember one time, as a awkward
and chunky kid sporting my fresh new
high top fade, walking to assembly about
two months into the scholastic year.
The walk itself was hilly and probably a
little shy of a half mile.
We held our Monday morning assemblies in
the school gym which was detached from
our main school, so we walked.
Rain, sleet or snow … we walked.
About half way through the walk where it
started to get really hilly I could hear
Rich, an eighth grader, behind me say
“Daegan, why are your legs so skinny,
but you have boobs like a girl?”
Having no answer to that question, I
felt it’s sting to my core. I simply put
my head down and continued up the hill.
I had little kiddy man boobs which I
carried with me until the age of … I
don’t know, let’s say 30.
As you can probably imagine I was always
self conscious about taking my shirt
Having boobs and being a boy ain’t all
it’s cracked up to be.
Now, by the age of about 25 I weight
about 235 pounds, had a body fat
percentage of about 7%, and could bench
press 430 pounds for 3 sets of six, and
I still had those pesky boobs.
So god knows I tried to get rid of those
bad boys through discipline and sweat,
thats why …
When I see all those eBooks claiming
they “cure” man boobs I get pissed.
It’s horse shit.
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that
can only be solved by one thing.
Last year I bought myself a present.
You guessed it …
A boob job.
And I can tell you flat out, it was THE
best $8,000 I’ve ever spent.
I am happier.
I don’t know ….
Call me crazy, but I love buying my
This Christmas I bought her a brand new
big ass LED TV for her and my
Grandfather to enjoy.
It was delivered a few days ago, and
just imagining them sitting there
enjoying their new TV puts a big’ol
smile on my face.
Buying stuff for people I care about
makes me happy.
Now, here’s one more reason why I think
you CAN and in fact SHOULD buy
Yesterday, I shared the story with you
about how I got started online.
What I didn’t tell you, is that as soon
as I got home from that Holiday Inn,
like a crack fiend, I scoured the
internet for my second “fix” of how to
make money online.
I came across a book called “Google
Cash” written by a guy named Chris
Carpenter, and I can remember reading
the sales letter like 11 times.
Even though all the ideas about posting
links online and making $30,000 per
month were incredibly seductive. I mean
“Ohh my gosh, I’m on the verge of
something HUGE ” seductive.
Every time …
I got to the part where it said “now
give me $67” and I’ll give you this book
I couldn’t do it.
I don’t know why.
Thinking back, I was SO nieve back then.
I couldn’t get my head around spending
$67 on some eBook.
“The audacity of this guy Chris to ask
me for that kind of money.”
Somehow, I finally clinched my jaw,
pulled out the credit card and did the
Just like with heroin, it’s NOT the
first hit that gets you, it’s the

positive addiction I can think of, but I
It get’s better.
So, I’m out there buying everything I
can get my hands on, making a dollar
here, and a dollar there, but by no
means in profit, and then …
I get invited my, now, best selling
author of the “Unemployed Millionaire”,
Matt Morris to go to my first marketing
It was here in Washington DC.
It was a buddy ticket, but still …
It cost me $800 which I was teetering
back and fourth on whether or not it was
a smart of dumb use of my dough until I
Being there, changed my life for three
reasons which I’ll get to in a minute.
I remember I was SO nervous when I went
to go pick up Matt at the hotel that
He flew in from Texas, and the least I
could do was give him a ride to the big
show being a townee and all, well …
We valet the car, and I immediately
start feeling shaky and cold.
“Who am I? I’m not making money, this
Matt, he’s a millionaire and all these
people I’m seeing … Wow they’re the
gurus I see online, but who am I? I
don’t deserve to be here.”
We go out to dinner the first night, and
I can remember sitting there at dinner
with Tellman Knudson who had just
cracked his first $800,000 year (I
remember because ALL that he spoke
about.), and …
A few people down at the table, was my
now buddy and college wresting comrade
Russell Brunson (I guarantee he doesn’t
remember that dinner at the Capital
Grill, but I remember, I even remember
he got a steak sandwich or something
Although he hadn’t made 8 figures in a
year at that point, he was still A guy
who was all over the internet, one year
older than me, and making millions, and
there I am …
Because I bought an $800 ticket to an
event eating dinner with them.
Here’s what that did to me, and you’ll
find the same thing happen to you the
first event you go to …
It made the idea of success real.
These people I saw online all over the
place were now very real.
Not better than me, just slightly ahead
of the curve on me.
If not for that event and these
experiences at that event, my belief
that I could do it myself would never

let you know what events I’m headed to
first quarter this year if you’re
Now, by the second day I’m having the
time of my life.
Every single presenter was dropping
marketing knowledge atomic bombs.
I’m sitting in the front row with Matt
in the VIP section (because he’s a VIP)
I couldn’t take notes fast enough.
I’m having the time of my life.
Then it happened.
A guy a little shorter than me from
Texas that spoke kinda funny gets up on
stage and starts talking.
My ears perk up like I dog trying to
hear something it can’t see.
To this day …
I still have the NOTES I took that day
from that presentation on my desk right
here beside me.
Of course, they’re old and some of the
pages are torn, but man ohh man are
those notes a gold mine.
This guy who calls himself “The King Of
Let’em Come to You!”
He starts his presentation off by
explaining that he’d been a direct
response marketer for many years, and
Just 19 months ago he started a brand
new information marketing business from
scratch with …
Literally no money invested, no
customers, no lists, no joint venture
partners, no merchant account, no
nothin, and in that time he developed
that simple idea into a million dollar
I can remember vividly thinking to
“How awesome. What freedom he must feel
to command such a power. What leverage.
19 months to $1 Million per year. Wow.”
(Sidenote: I’ve since beaten that record
in taking Maximum Leverage from $0 to
$128,000 per month in just under 6
Naturally, I paid very close attention
to everything he said, and it didn’t
hurt that he started saying things that
make a LOT of sense to me like …
“I’m in the business of getting and
Then he shared that everything that he
did to create that level of success in
his business was preplanned before he
ever sent a single email.
Next, he laid out a timeline that showed
exactly where he started and brought us
up to current.
May 23rd, 2004 – First email sent
June 10th, 2004 – First check $700.36
June 28th, 2004 – Second check $2,421.19
February 2006 – $87,945.28 in sales
Then he went on to show us exactly how
he had created his …
“Highly profitable, extremely
predictable, completely stable,
ulitimate lifestyle business.”
I bet your wondering what he shared …
I’ll give you a hint:
It had everything to do with what I’m
doing right now with you.
He had me hook line and sinker.
That presentation flat out changed my
