“Rockstar Platinum Live is gonna change my life!”
This from a gentle soul who had all but given up on his dreams of not relying on “the man” to fund his future and very lively hood.
You see, Fred Barnes, is from Detroit.
He used to work for “the man” at GM, but we all know what has happened at GM lately. No need to go into the abuse of corporate and government powers at work there.
Would it surprise you to know that Fred lost his job two months ago (yes, right before Christmas – merry freaking Christmas indeed).
Fred, who had not missed a single day of scheduled work in 13 years
was dismissed like he was one of those used up old tires.
Fred, who had to look his wife in the eye and tell her that they couldn’t spend that extra money on their grand baby, Erika Lynn, because they needed to save every red cent.
Cause Lord only knew when he would be able to find another job in Michigan, of all places.
But Fred has found the “light at the end of the tunnel”.
You see, Fred and I met at a “free to the public event” we held last June. We saw the devastation of the automakers coming and just knew that we had to let these folks know the secret.
The secret, of course, is that you CAN control your financial future
and NOT have to rely on “the man” for your financial security.
All you need is someone willing to share with you the way to make this happen in the shortest possible time frame possible.
Fred was there last June and he remembered our talk.
He was feeling the pressure of job hunting and his savings dwindling further and further down.
Then he found it.
The flyer he casually picked up last June. Fred stared at this single page for about 20 minutes.
Then he did that one thing that will change his life. He picked up his cordless phone and gave us a call.
Fred’s luck was already changing – cause he did the “near impossible and caught Lee & I between meetings.
After the hesitant greetings and remembering of our meeting back in June, Lee and I listened as Fred poured his story out to us.
A story we have heard way too freaking often.
Then Fred asked the question….
“so, can I really make money on my own?”
We love this question, cause we can actually respond with a resounding YES!
“The trick, Fred, is to find a few folks who have made it and do the exact same thing they did”
And this is absolutely true. You ain’t gotta reinvent the wheel. After all – why would you put all of that energy into recreating a system that already works?
To prove what we were saying is true, we shared with Fred the 5 simple steps to getting started.
You want to know what they are?
OK, here ya go….
1. Find a hot market with money
2. Find a product that they desire
3. Create a way for them to buy this product from you
4. Drive traffic
and my favorite…
Fred was quiet for a few minutes and he finally said, “It can’t be that easy”.
We assured him that is was. The trick was finding the folks who are experts in the areas of these 4 simple steps and do what they tell you to do.
Can you guess Fred’s next question?
He asked,”OK, but how to I get these experts to tell ME how to do this stuff?”
Well, hell – that’s easy!
The real experts share their insider secrets freely in front of folks all of the time
– if you know where to find them.
Then we told Fred where to find them…
Here he could find experts like…
- Deb Micek (Coach Deb to those of you who know her on Twitter) – Social Media Queen
- Dave Lakhani – master at persuasion and positioning
- Simon Leung – Expert Google Adwords dude – best way to drive paid traffic hands down
- Anik Singal – Affiliate Marketing RockStar – don’t need your own product when you can sell someone elses!
- Matt Bacak – Crazy Smart Business Startup Mentor
- Tom Beal – Business Operations Expert (does all the heavy lifting for Mike Filsaime of all peeps)
- Scott Stratten – the best traffic is Fr.ee Viral Traffic – and here’s the best in that game
- Ross Goldberg – Social Media extraordinaire
- Alan Bechtold – Internet Master – been there since the beginning and KNOW’s what works
And this is just a few! Plus I will be there to show how to put it all together into that Repeatable System.”
The line went silent. We could hear Fred processing all of this while we waited for him to speak.
Which he did eventually, but very softly.
Fred said, as if to himself, “I can do this. I got just enough to make this happen.”
Lee and I were a little puzzled by this response. I mean, of course he can do this – but what did he mean “just enough” to make it happen?
“I got this here check from those corrupt folks in my hand right now.”
Fred’s voice got a little louder as he started to believe…
“I am gonna us this refund check and get my ass out to Vegas. I am gonna take back control. I am gonna show those firing bast*rds they ain’t got me to kick around any more.”
Man, I get goosebumps just remembering the determination in this man’s voice.
Fred is taking back control.
He is coming to Vegas to learn first hand from the folks who can show him EXACTLY what he needs to do to make this happen for him.
I couldn’t be more proud of Fred. The courage and tenacity – I love it!
So, now the question I have for you is…
What are you gonna do about YOUR future?
