What Online Millionaires Tell Me They Are Worried About
I just arrived back from the best seminar I have ever
attended in the last 10-years.
There were more "Underground" millionaires at Yanik Silver's
"Underground" seminar than I've ever had access to at one
Upon arrival, we had to sign Non Disclosure Agreements, and
for very good reason. These high money earners are all making
their fortunes from a wide variety of markets - but are NOT
selling products to the get rich crowd.
On the marketing side, we had Corey Rudl - the role model
that I followed to break free into doing what I love.
Corey's a millionaire many times over.
Then there were the big names such as Dan Kennedy, Jim
Edwards, Phil Wiley, Rosalin Gardner and of course, Yanik
I was amazed though - these guys were actually taking notes,
buying products and networking with these other "Underground"
Two MAJOR things that came through loud and clear from this
seminar - essential for your own success online:
1. These BIG money earners were earning fortunes off of many
different business models (affiliate marketing, infoproducts,
membership sites, Google Adsense, portal sites...). It's
clear that there is no SINGLE online business model you have
to follow to be successful. There are many to choose from.
Action becomes the real difference between these guys/gals
success and all others who just dream.
2. There was not 1 SINGLE big money earner that was earning
huge profits from affiliate programs or advertising that did
not (or did not plan to) create their own information products
in their field. I talked with some of thesse millionaires
privately - some of them were very concerned (even SCARED) by
ANY business model that put the control of their fortune in
the hands of someone else.
It was easy to see that creating your own information product
is a CRITICAL piece to making and keeping the profits flowing
into your online business.
You build your brand, you create leveraged income (a few weeks
of development leads to years of sales), you generate leads,
you bundle and earn more profits, you can license and earn
even more and MOST important. You control your product - it
cannot be taken away from you.
It makes sense when you think about it.
Say you build your business model on creating hundreds of sites
and earning big money by putting Google Adsense ads on the
pages. Later this year, Google decides to change the rules
of the game (you all know they've done this many times before)
and your income drops by 80% overnight!
That's ok if you have other business models that continue to
chug along, not so good if that's all you have.
So get started on your own product today. It can be a 20-page
report, 80-page ebook, 45-minute teleseminar, 10 page minicourse,
or a variety of other formats - the key is that you must start

What Kind of Business Should I Start?
It's not uncommon to reach your 30s, 40s or even 50s and still wonder, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" Few people are fortunate enough to be certain of their destinies early on and the rest of us are forced to do some soul searching.
History of Enterprise Car Rentals
So few really understand the drives and motivations of entrepreneurs. Many write about them, some lecture and teach about what they are, how they operate and what they have achieved; yet so few really understand them. So many fail to realize the dedication and sacrifice it takes to win at that level and the super stars are so rare that one just has to look in awe. One of the greatest stories of Entrepreneurial success is that of Jack Taylor who founded Enterprise Rent-A-Car. I therefore recommend this book about the History of Enterprise Rent-A-Car Book is;
Reducing the Stress of Being an Entrepreneur
Starting and running your own business can be exciting and rewarding, but it can also be very stressful. For most of our almost 40 year marriage my husband has been an entrepreneur and I have sometimes worked with him. Having built my own business as a Stress Reduction Coach I have been reflecting on the stresses of being an entrepreneur.

Financial Issues in Business Startup
A primary inhibitor of business start-up is that few people have the financial cushion to give up a job for the uncertain income of a start-up venture. In a recent survey, about 30% of new business founders identified inadequate funding as their biggest hurdle, and a similar amount said lenders were too conservative. About 15% reported being unable to find investors, and a similar amount claimed a lack of collateral.
Interview with Best-selling Entrepreneurial Authors Barbara Winters and Nick Williams
Ray Bradbury's quote, "You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down" may sound extreme but, as anyone building a business knows, it has a lot of truth in it.
Last week I was working with one of my small business clients, a bright and dynamic woman who's passionate about positioning her artisan business for growth. We were talking about her financial picture and forecasting robust sales over the next three years.
Customers - Why Should They Buy From You?

perceived problems. They want to move away from pain and
towards pleasure. They want to feel better after having made
the decision to buy a product or service than they did

A Dorm Room With A View
As a senior in high school, he paid cash for a BMW with money made by selling newspapers.

Creativity & Entrepreneurship: The Secret to Discovering Your Purpose in Life!©
Hello Creative Entrepreneurs!
At an International Franchising Symposium in London, Peter Holt made the bold statement to his audience of Franchisors that they needed to understand that their business would fail, and in fact all businesses are bound for failure. Needless to say, there were a few shocked faces in the crowd. He was making the point that it really is just a matter of the number of calendar flips before time strangles any business. It's a hard point to argue when you think that the Neanderthal Fortune 100 included Barney's Dinosaur Obedience School. Not a lot of money in that these days.
