The Silent Salesperson

In the classic book Think and Grow Rich, Mr. Hill wrote about a salesman who lost his job during the great depression.  With a poor economy, businesses going under left and right (almost sounds like 2013) this salesman did not have many prospects to find another job.  He did have a little bit of accounting back ground so he decided to go into business for himself doing book-keeping at a wholesale price (I wonder if this guy was a descendent of Sam Walton of Wal-Mart?).

Everyone has a millionaire within.

The concept was sound and it proved to make this unemployed salesman a very successful man during a very harsh time.  But when Mr. Hill first presented the idea to this young man he did like the concept except for one problem.  He did not know how to market his services.  Mr. Hill gave him the secret to solve that problem.  Mr. Hill called it the Silent Salesman and here is how it worked.

He wrote a story about the benefits of his service and put it into the format of a very attractive book which he had printed.  He then used that book as a lead generator, giving the book away rather than trying to sell it, which worked so well that this salesman soon had more accounts than he could handle.  This book idea for attracting new customers is what they called the Silent Salesman.

Today as back then, many people found themselves struggling with the harsh reality of a down economy.  Most people gave in and suffered the results of those times because they did not take aggressive action to use an innovative idea to out smart the bad economy.  I have been a lover of books since I was 12 years old (that is now 42 years of reading!) and using books that I co-authored as a lead generator has made me a financial fortune.  I have helped many others use this same method of co-authoring a book and then using it as a silent salesman to boost their cash flow, create massive amounts of new business, open doors of opportunity, flood their pipeline with new customers and take their business to the next level of success.

The story is told of Mr. Edison asking one of his young workers one day what he wanted most in life?  The young man replied that he wanted to be rich.  After some time had passed, Mr. Edison came back to the young man with a pair of glasses that he removed the lens from and inserted silver dollars.  He told the young man to put on the glasses and then asked him “what do you see?”  I cannot see anything piped the young man in which Mr. Edison said, “that is your problem; money is right in front of your eyes and you cannot even see it!”

When people talk to me about their lack of cash flow, customers and business volume I hold up a book and ask them what they see?  They will respond and say “a book”.  I tell them when I see a book I see a gold mine with unlimited riches waiting for me.  I see a gold mine filled with new customers, cash flow and business volume.  I see a dynamic team of salespeople all out there working 24-7 to letting people know who I am, what I offer and how to find me.  I like to call it my ideal customer finder!  Many people could have used that same concept of a book to create a successful business and out smart the depression and how many did use this system I have no way of knowing however, we do know this young unemployed salesman used this system and not only made a ton of money in the depression but landed up in the pages of the best-selling self book that has ever been sold.

I wonder if this young man had any idea that this concept of using a book to beat the depression would not only solve his money problems, but would have people talking about his story 80 years later?

It is no accident that almost every successful person on the market today used a book they wrote to launch their massive success and use books they write to continue that line of success.

In fact, Donald Trump got a TV show partly due to an earlier book he wrote.  Oprah went from talk show host to business tycoon after her first book and Robert Kiyosaki was virtually unknown until he wrote his first book which by the way was self published. 

Let me start of by telling you a true story: 

My mind races back to early 1970 when I was just a child and would love to watch the Walton’s on T.V.  Perhaps my favorite character was John-Boy because I could identify with him wanting to be a writer.  Since the age of 12 years old I knew that I wanted to be a writer.  When I read an ad in a comic book, How to Become a Writer- I rustled some money from my folks and sent for the home course.

I can still remember the day I got the package in the mail, my heart raced with excitement and my mind zoomed with adventure.  It was a brown soft bound book and when I started to read it, I remembered thinking; I don’t have a clue what this book is saying.  But it did not matter to me; just having that book gave me hope and inspiration!

I share that story with you because there are many reasons why people want to write a book; however this is what I have found out; Millions of people want to write a book.  Most have the ability, some have the drive but few have the know how. 

However, now in the 21 Century and the power of the internet, knowledge is more accessible now than at any other time in recorded history.  If you really want to expand your income try taking on a Silent Salesman.

How Much Does Success Cost?

I guess you would call me an Inspirational writer, meaning I do not pre-write my blogs, but wait and listen everyday until I get the right message to share with our readership the thing they need at the right time in their life. Today I am sharing on the price or cost of Success. One of the best questions you could ever ask is, “How Much Does Success Cost?  In life, we ask about the cost of everything we buy, (except when it comes to my wife and her shoes, she could careless how much they cost…but I sure do!).  Yet rarely do we take the time to find out how much success and our dreams really cost.

Leader WithinSuccess will cost you “Everything You Have In Order to Give You Everything You Want” On your Journey to your Dreams, obstacles, set backs, challenges, disappointments, failures, fears and problems will come in and rain down on you unmercifully and the only thing that will pull you through is a relentless fighting spirit, the proper tools and a caring Mentor.  But the good news is, with these three elements the chains that hold back your Ultimate Dreams will be broken and you will attain that which you seek!

If there was only one bit of advice out of the thousands of things I could share with people, that one bit of advice I would give is…

“If It’s Going To Be

It’s Up To Me!”

 

Success requires you to face the fact that as adults we have moved from Paternalism to Individualism. Paternalism is what happens between good and loving parents and their children during childhood and adolescences which basically equates to “Father will Provide”.  However, in adulthood life, we move into Individualism which is Personal Responsibility for our results or…”If it’s Going to Be, It’s Up to Me 

I am sorry to be the one to break the harsh news to you but, no one is coming to your rescue, no one is going to fight your battle, and no one is going to create your success.  We all have to face the fact that if “Success is To Be, It’s 100 percent up to Me”.

Trying to live by Paternalism (Father will Provide) into adulthood is one of the main and deadly factors of Failure and disappointments in life, business

Make your Money Go Up as the Economy Goes Down

and relationships. This is also the reason many people get bitter towards God when the Miracle does not come when they expect one.  Thousands of preachers across the globe stand up saying “Give me your offering and God will provide for your every need!” Yes, I believe in giving and do believe God provides for us; however it is not under the principle of Paternalism but Responsibility.  100 years ago, most preachers that proclaim that paternalism message today (that makes them rich) would have eventually got the Ass Whooping of their life from their loving congregation!

Just to set the records straight, less you think I am a heathen, it is very important that we acknowledge a loving heavenly Father that provides for us and for us to develop a deep loving relationship with Him and always maintain a humble spirit of gratitude and appreciation.  God provides for us by giving us the Power to Get Wealth, but it becomes our responsibility to make it happen.  And just for good measure, I am not opposed at all of Preachers getting Rich, they should be rich, only teach people the correct way to get rich (Responsibility, If its going to be, its up to me) and not the false way of Paternalism.

If you go into life and business under the principle of Paternalism “Father will Provide” life will give you the Ass Whooping of your life!  Ok, I guess I stirred up enough bee hives today, I know some folks will be like an angry bee over this blog, yet for others, it will be a message of salvation from a trap of discouragement and disappointment, and for that reason, I will keep writing on!

One of the wealthiest men on earth was asked what it takes to be Successful.  He said it only takes two things;

  1. Decide on what you want
  2. Be willing to pay the price to get it 

How simple is that!  Do you know what you want and are you willing to pay the price to get it?  It is all up to you because…”If its to Be, Its up to Me”.

What Does It Take To Earn A Six and Seven Figure Income?

Ok, enough of the hoopla, the smoke screens, the fast track to success plans and every other horse manure systems out there, all promising to be the path to riches.  What does it really take to earn an annual six and seven figure income?  First and foremost you must realize that millions of individuals are earning those annual figures and much more, and a six and seven figure income is out there waiting for you and is within your grasp.  Now, with that being said… 

Here Is The True NO B.S. Facts on What You Need To Build a Six and Seven Figure Annual Income. 

What do you need to build a six and seven figure annual income?Image

 

Superior Tools An ordinary craftsman with superior tools can out perform a superior craftsman with inferior tools.  It still amazes me how many professionals work with inferior tools yet expect to achieve superior results.  One of the best lessons my Mentor taught me early on was; “Never buy the cheapest tools you can, always buy the most expensive ones you can afford”. 

Proven Plan Over forty percent of all individuals and companies I interview and ask the question “What is your plan to attract new customers, retain existing customers and increase profits” look at me with a blank stare and have their lips move and quiver but no words come out!  (Once in a while a weird Monster growl leaks out that sound like Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh).  Your marketing plan has to be so simple and effective and proven that even the janitor could implement it should the sales staff not come in. 

A Qualified Mentor A lot of people out there who are selling How to Get Rich products are not qualified to Mentor a mouse how to get cheese! Yet people spend millions of dollars annually with them.  A qualified Mentor is one who has what you want, has done and is doing what you want to do.   I asked one Bozo who was selling a coaching product on how to write a book and get published, how many books he has published?  He looked at me and said, “Who Me?”  (The answer was zero).  I thought to myself, this guy should be a circus clown. 

No B.S. Questions and Answers 

How much Money will you have to invest up front?  $4.10 a day 

How much Time do you have to invest everyday?  About 60 minutes, 6 days a week 

How Long will it take you? 12 months or less 

This system works for any type of business and profession and for those starting a new business venture. 

The plan is simple and easy to do, the cost anyone can afford, and the time frame is not that long, but the reward and dream of financial stability is worth it! 

To find out if this plan is right for you, you can set up a phone appointment with me and by answering 7 simple questions you will be able to make an intelligent decision on your own if this plan is for you.  I promise you this, after you answer the 7 questions you will have no doubt in your mind if it is or is not for you.  You will not have to think about it, it will be an absolute Yes or NO! 

It will cost you nothing to find out, but could be the vital key that will financially give you everything you want.

How does the plan work?  3 Simple Steps 

  1. Create an Audience (by giving away no cost informational products)
  2. Develop a Following (by providing them more no cost resources)
  3. Sell Them Products (that they now are willing and happy to pay for) 

Try my proven system for 12 months and if you have not created a six figure income and doubled your income, I will give you One Thousand Dollars…Guaranteed! 

ImageI have created and published 26 books, produced 4 major motivational films and work with the most recognized leaders in business and have over 220,000 printed copies of our books in the marketplace and one million e-books worldwide all because My Proven System Works.  I used this same system to start a Spa business in 2009 from scratch and in 9 months went from zero customers to over 900 customers and in two and half years built our paying client base to 3500 then sold it for an outrages profit in 2012!  I use this same system to create our Reality Show, The Millionaire Picker (you can see it at http://www.MillionairePicker.com) and use this same system to build our MSI Antique Store working with top celebrities which are my friends not paid endorsements. 

This same system is what I use everyday that built our Seminar, Mentoring, Book Publishing and Film Company Empire over the past 20 years.  It is also the reason we can afford to spend thousands of dollars a month on giving away products all over the world at no cost and postpaid, changing and improving lives all over the globe! In fact our give away product budget is more than the average American earns in a single year. 

It all started 20 years ago when I started giving away a Zig Ziglar audio cassette to prospects and clients.  Back then, I did not start it as a marketing tool, I was just a nice guy who was helped by this tape and wanted everyone to have it.  So I made a bunch of copies at home and started giving them away.  I had no clue that this was the beginning of building my future financial fortune. 

Every dollar I have ever earned from that day to this, I can trace back to this system of giving away informational products.  After 20 years and lots of success under my belt of course, I have perfected this turn key system to a science or what I call Predictable Wealth. 

One thing you will learn about me the more time you spend with me, is the fact that I Hate with a Passion B.S. and Exaggeration.  Do not give me bluff, just the solid facts. Because I am this way, I operate my business on the same principle; I will never give you a bunch of horse crap dressed up as a promise, just the true facts of the good and bad points of everything in business. 

Our Marketing system works for any business to create any income you desire if you work and use the system.  So remember, just email me at don@donboyer.org a time you want to talk and find out how we can put you in the drivers seat toward your six and seven annual income. 

Now you got the facts, without the bluff, you decide what you do next…

Changing Lives Through the Power Of The Pen

Dr. Martin Luther King proclaimed “I have a dream”. This is the mantra of every published, self published and unpublished author.  The dream lives with them 24 hours a day because inside their heart is the burning desire to “change lives through the power of the pen”. 

Let me start off by telling you a true story… 

My mind races back to the early 70’s when I was just a child and would love to watch the Walton’s on T.V.  Perhaps my favorite character was John-Boy because I could identify with him wanting to be a writer.  Since the age of 12 years old I knew that I wanted to be a writer.  When I read an ad in a comic book, “How to Become a Writer” I rustled some money from my folks and sent for the home course.

I can still remember the day I got the package in the mail, my heart raced with excitement and my mind zoomed with adventure.  It was a brown soft bound book and when I started to read it, I remembered thinking, “I don’t have a clue what this book is saying.”  But it did not matter to me; just having that book gave me hope and inspiration!

It allowed me to feed my dream of someday becoming a published author, to have the ability to paint on the canvas of paper the words, thoughts, dreams and visions that would flood my mind on a daily basis.

That little brown unattractive home study course on how to become a writer fueled my passion to share my thoughts and words with the world.  It did not matter that I did not understand one word that course said, it was my point of contact to dream, and dream big!

I share that story with you because there are many reasons why people have a dream to write a book; however this is what I have learned,

Millions of people want to write a book.

Most have the ability, some have the drive but few have the know how.” 

Finding Your PassionHaving a dream to become a published author is a wonderful and powerful element.  Did my youthful dream of becoming a published author ever come true?  Many people have wondered about that.  Well, 33 years after I got that home study course in the mail I have had the good pleasure to have published 19 books and create the best selling The Power of Mentorship book series that now have over 200,000 printed copies in the marketplace worldwide.

Yes dreams are important and yes they do come true, but not by themselves.  You see, many people have dreams, but not every one has wings.  Dreams without wings stay grounded.

“Will my passion support me? If your passion has a plan, your plan will support your passion”

How do we put wings to our dreams?  By good old hard work; my good friend and best selling author Brian Tracy says it best; “Success is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent hard work”.

Did we say hard work?  Let’s make it clear that hard work is smart work, knowing what to do and how to do it to create the results you want.

“Working hard on things that don’t work, don’t

make them work”

If you have a dream of becoming a published author (or any dream for that matter) or if you are an author and want to sell more books, here are 5 important points to help you take that dream from your heart and turn it into reality.

1.        Find A Mentor.  Finding a mentor that can teach you how to get what you want is not only invaluable but a necessary ingredient to achieve your goal and dream.  It will save you years off the learning curve and save you thousands of dollars of costly mistakes.  When I went to my first mentor to teach me how to do a book series he asked me; “do you want to do this as a hobby or a business?  I responded I do not know?  He looked at me and said get out of my office; if you are not going to treat this like a business you have no business doing it!  That was the key advice that allowed me to create our highly successful book series.

Another book mentor of mine was the late Charlie Tremendous Jones.  I remember when we came out with our second Power of Mentorship book I put on the cover volume two.  I had already approved the cover, and the cover was done.  Charlie told me; get the word volume off that cover.  I said “why Charlie, it looks so good?”  He said if you keep it there it will hinder your sales.  Charlie had been in the book business for over 40 years and his mentorship proved once again to be invaluable.

2.        Get into an anthology. One the best ways to start your publishing career as well as boost an existing one and sell more books (if you currently have one) is to become published in an anthology.  An anthology is book that is composed of contributing authors or what I like to refer as “co-authors”. 

There are a number of anthology books on the market today that will give you the opportunity to be part of the book; however the best ones to be involved with are those who have best selling authors that are part of the contributing authors.

The keys to writing success is positioning yourself as an expert, establishing your credibility, massive exposure, and developing your brand.  Anthologies help you do exactly that especially those that have best selling authors that are part of that group.

3.        Keep your writing dreams alive.  If you have a dream to become a published author, you and you alone will have to be the “keeper of the flame”.  It will be up to you to stay excited, fuel your passion and fan the flame.  Your mentor can give you the plan; you however must supply the drive.  How strong is your desire to write?  How much passion do you have to get published, have a book and get your message in print form?   Only you can answer these questions and the answers will determine if you are willing to put wings to your dream or allow your dream to stay grounded.

4.        Take action now.  When I go speak in a certain city, I always have people come up to me and tell me they are in the process of writing a book, or plan to write a book.  What always amazes me is when I visit that same city the next year or so, 95 percent of those same people who told me about their writing dreams have done nothing to towards making them a reality.  Dreaming is worthless unless you add action with it.  My mentor Bob Proctor taught me how to make decisions based on what I want, not what I think I can do, not what circumstances dictate to me or what my bank account tells me what I can or cannot do. 

Start taking action now, today, and the plan, the people and resources will always show up along the way.

5.        Know your purpose.  You must know what you want and why you want it.  Many people know what they want, but when it comes to analyzing why they want it they become clueless.  Know why you want to become a published author.  It is because you have a burning message in your heart that you fill compelled to get out into the market, a desire to help people through the power of the pen, to sell a lot of books and create a fortune?  These are all worthy and honorable goals.  Whatever your reason, whatever your purpose is to become a published author know them and you will be well on your way to making your dream come true.

You were created with a Message, and we created a platform for you to share it.  If you would like to be published in our Power of Mentorship book, please send an email to don@donboyer.org for details.

The Pressure of Money… It’s not what you think it is.

97 percent of people who hear the phrase “Money Pressure” would equate that to financial shortage, financial challenge, and debt, lack and money worries.  However, the pressure of money has nothing to do with the shortage of money but the abundance of money.

Right now, you are surrounded with “money pressure” and if you understand what that means it could make you wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.  Let me explain:

A maple tree is full of sap syrup running inside its tree trunk.  In fact the tree is completely jammed pack full of maple syrup and it’s under a tremendous amount of force and pressure.  All that is needed to release the syrup is to create a “tap” into the tree and by nature of the pressure inside the tree; the maple syrup comes “gushing” out in abundance!

Your “tap” is your business and service.  Learn how to improve, expand and upgrade your marketing, your exposure, and your service which in turn creates many “taps” into the money tree and by way of the pressure of economics, money will begin to flow out to you in abundance.

The only reason there seems to be a sluggish economy is not due to a lack of business or money, but a lack of “taps”.  Money is still here on planet earth, millions of dollars are under pressure to burst out your way, and all it takes is to plug in your “tap” and let the money flow.  I promise you, if you do this, you will stand there and say, “What harsh economy”?

If you want to know a big “Tap” you can tap into here it is…

The Next Trillion Dollar Industry

 Over the past few years the self help industry has not been sluggish because of it’s content, or lack of interest from the marketplace or even as some have said from “information overload”.  It has been on the decline because of its current format in meeting the demands of cultural change.  We are now living in a very peculiar time in history, where technology is no longer an interesting subject, but a life driven system known as “marketplace culture”.   For instance, how did we ever do business without computers, cell phones, emails and the internet?  To think that these tools were not available to the average business 25 years ago seems to be, well unthinkable!

However, these technologies are no longer for the elite few, but for the ordinary masses which now has become cultural standard, which simply means this system of technology has become our lifestyle.   Being part of the baby boomer generation, I did not grow up with internet technology, and although I am proficient enough to function in this technology the fact remains that my 4 year old granddaughter knows how to navigate my iPhone games better than me!  The self help industry as we now know it today has a little over a 100 year history.  Not much has changed in the way of its message and teachings for they are founded on unchangeable principles.  However, the format they have been brought to the public has drastically changed over the last 100 years.

1910 through 1950 the self help industry was booming through the format of printed books.  That era gave us the classics that we are still buying today like “As a man thinketh”, “Think and Grow Rich” and the “Science of Getting Rich” just to name a few.  Then the movement started losing momentum in the marketplace and went on a massive decline.

In the 70’s and 80’s it was revived with a renewed fever by using the format of live seminars and meetings.  Professional speakers like Jim Rohn, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, Zig Ziglar and many others would pack out a 10,000 seat auditorium across the nation.  The self help success industry was once again in the mainstream spot light.  But as the cultural demand changed, so did the need for the delivery format.  So once again as the marketplace format shifted, the industry started to decline.

Once the 1990’s came into play, the self help success industry become alive and mainstream once again through the media of audios.  As technology progressed and the demand on our time continued to grow, less and less people were willing to pack out auditoriums and used their travel time to turn their car and commute time into a ‘learning university on wheels” by way of audio programs.  This format was extremely effective throughout the 90’s and even well into the 21st Century.

However, the industry took on a massive renewal revival in 2006 with the mega smash hit film “the Secret” produced by Rhonda Burns. For many known and unknown reasons the film swept the globe and went viral.  Many people had high hopes for the film project, but nobody expected it to become the phenomena that it did.  This gave the industry a huge boost and mass appeal and once again the flames of the personal growth industry was burning only this time brighter than they shone for the past 100 years.  This also put the self help industry in a new format that nobody was really expecting, and that was in a movie format.  A film that was a unique blend of being a documentary coupled with a storyline, showcasing the top experts in the field of personal development.  International experts like Bob Proctor, Marie Diamond, James Ray and many others.  Once the Secret was released, the personal growth industry took off the path to fill the marketplace demand of bringing the message of success through movies.

This however created two major problems;

  1. No body in the personal growth industry had any real experience in this movie format, and frankly had no idea what they were doing.  But not knowing what you are doing has never stopped any real success expert.  So we just jumped in and started filling the need.
  1. The “Secret” was such a phenomenal hit, and did create a magnificent film that it was very hard and expensive to follow.

Although motivational movies are fun to do and we have personally produced four of them ourselves, (you can view the trailers at www.EmbracetheJourney.net) there is a new kid on the block, which is not a fad, but a global phenomena that is here to stay that I call the “E-book Phenomena”.  I have been predicting and preparing for this global trend since 2006 when we were one of the first publishing companies to convert our printed books into an e-book format and market them.  Of course, back then, there were was no real market for them, and there was no such thing as e-book readers on the market yet.  However,  I seen the day approaching.  That day is now here and taking the market by storm.  In fact, the front cover of a recent Bloomberg Business-Week magazine has the caption “Amazon wants to burn the (printed) book business”.

That reality is not good news for traditional book publishers; however it has opened an unlimited “Gold Mine” for speakers, coaches, and entrepreneurs to partake in the greatest marketing and business tool ever created, “The published book” If you are going to survive and excel in this current harsh economy, you will want to take advantage of this global trend. Becoming a published author has now become accessible to every professional on the planet.  So I urge you to stake your “claim” in this “Trillion Dollar Industry” of digital downloads.

My Orange Socks

If you can figure out a way to give people what they want, you will become very rich.  Most people want long-term success, but are only willing to pay for things that bring instant gratification.

I love what my mentor Bob Proctors says; Tell me what you want and I will show you how to get it.

dee wallaceThe reason people struggle with selling their products and services is because they are doing just that; trying to sell people a product.  They do not take the time to listen to people in order to find out what people really want.  People look at your products as a problem not a solution.  In their mind, they are thinking, that is just what I need, more payments and spend money I do not have.

I can tell you from almost 30 years experience, in a challenging economy people are not interested in buying products or services!  That is why selling is so hard for most people.

What do people want?  I have no clue; that is, until I sit down with them and listen with my ears open and my mouth closed.  People are happy to tell you what they want; in fact it is virtually impossible not to let other people not know what we want because what we want pours out of us like a fountain.

A couple of years ago I went into a clothing store with the intent to buy 3 or 4 suites, some shirts, ties and dress pants, not to mention socks, shoes, belts and pocket squares.  I went in there ready to unload some serious money on that shop, and knowing that the salesperson was paid on commission, I figured I was going to make one chap a happy camper for the day.

As I walked in, I fell in love with four suites, wow; they were my style, big bright colors.  All I needed was a big hat and a feather and I would be ready for the side walks of Hollywood!

As I went into full swing trying on the coats the salesman kept trying to tell me those suits were not for me, kindly at first and then the pressure kept mounting.  Finally he said in a stern voice; Sir, I can not possibly sell you those suits; I would be doing you a dishonor!

I said okay, call that other salesperson over here to see if he will sell them to me?

Once he realized I was serious, he took off his glasses and wiped them and said; Sir, those suites look fabulous on you!  He even ended up selling me orange socks.

In your business you are operating as a servant or a judge.  The only way to become rich is by being a servant, that means giving people what they want, not what you think they need.

Business folks with the right intent try to sell people what they need instead of what people want and then wonder why business is so bad.  They are conducting business as a judge not a servant.

Try to sell me a bottle of your potion because it comes from the bottom of the ocean and has more nutrients than anything on the planet and I am not interested.   However, tell me that I can lower my blood sugar and improve my diabetes with your potion and I will buy a case of it, even if the potion comes from the butt of a camel!   Why?  I am not interested in buying products, but I will open my wallet for solutions and things I want.

Tale a look at your business today, and ask yourself if you are trying to sell your products or focusing on what people want?  It will be the difference between breaking the bank or breaking your back!

So in closing, if you drive the streets of Hollywood, and see some cat in a bright color suite, wearing orange socks, honk, it just might be me!

The Hidden Secret to Wealth

Do you realize that money is just a symbol for value?  What you have is your report card of what you give.  Your bank account reflects your value account.  If you watch the actions, mindset and habits of the average person or business that is struggling financially, you will find that they are more interested in making money than they are in producing value.

There is one thing that you cannot do and that is deceive the business market.  The business market only responds to releasing its funds to value.  How do you create value in the market place, your customer, family or for your fellowmen?  I have found four powerful ways.

  1. Dump the Scarcity Mindset

This kind of mindset is the reason people live a life and/or run a business that is based on making money instead of adding or creating value for people.  Thus, they struggle in finances and in every other area of their life that they apply this method.  They do this because of an internal belief (paradigm) that there is not enough for everyone and in order for them to have enough they must somehow win the battle and get yours.

groupbooksRecently I met a very bright young man (in his twenties) who has a young family to support and was making just enough to get by.  I had the opportunity to take him to lunch a couple of times and he really wanted me to mentor and help him.  I gave him a small job for one day, working in my office and offered to pay him $500.00 for the day.  The first thing he asked me was when I would pay him?  Then he asked how long did he have to work?  Then he wanted to know if lunch was included.

It was not that this young man was lazy, nor did he intend to come across like someone walking around in a fog, it was just that he had the mindset of being more interested in what he got verses in what he could give.  Although he has great potential, this type of mindset will keep him locked into poverty and just getting by.

“The great tragedy of life is…

People can have so much but settle for so little”. 

Don Boyer 

I have a family member that he too suffers from this great peril of a scarcity mindset, and like the young man above, does not have two quarters to rub together from his paycheck.  As I observed him the other day as we were eating out, I could not take his rude behavior of not waiting for anyone else to eat, but getting his plate he dives right in, chewing with his mouth open and not caring of his manner.  I slammed my fist on the table and said David (not his real name) “How does it feel being the only person on the planet?”  He looked up at me and said, “I wish I was, that way I could have everything just for me”.  Pathetic but very sad, sad that he lives like this and sad that millions of people operate and run their business and life with this mindset.

If you want to spot a winner, become aware of those you eat out with.  A winner will always pick up the check; a loser will always expect you to pick up the check.  On a good day, a loser may say, “I will get the tip” and then leave a dollar!   You cannot possibly get ahead in life or financially with a scarcity paradigm or mindset.

  1. Be on a Mission

Ask yourself everyday, “How can I bring my customer, marketplace, people, friends, business and family more value?  This is a foundational principle that we run our company and our lives by.  Does this mean you should give away your product or service? Yes, sometimes.  Let me give you an example.  Our mission and purpose is to give people the opportunity to better their lives.  One way that I do that is by giving away a free Mentorship book and a free Mentorship kit.  But, my mission is to help people not waste or throw away money.  So, when people go to my website at www.DonBoyerAuthor.com to get their free book or Mentorship kit, I ask them to pay the small S/H fee.  If someone is not willing to pay the shipping charge to get a free book or kit that thousands have paid full price for, they are not the ones I can help.

When we first launched this offer, I had a friend tell me, “What a great marketing plan”.  I said, “I am not doing this as a marketing plan, I am doing it this way so that I can bring value to those who want to improve themselves and not waste money on those who only want a free ride in life”.

The worst day in a mans life is when he

Expects something for nothing.

                  Thomas Jefferson

When I write about bringing value to people, you do have to use some common sense.  There is a great difference between giving value and wasting money.  My view is, you feed a Jack Ass corn not gold!  Value should be given to those who deserve value (which is most people). Do you know the ones in your life who deserve gold and those that deserve corn?  Your ability to know the difference will be a key factor in your overall success.

  1. Million Dollar Service

Create a plan to give people what I call “Million Dollar Service”.  Model it after the kind of service you receive from an exclusive hotel or high-end restaurant.  Make a list of 5 things you can do for your customers that are above and beyond your call of duty.  Small things can create a big impact.  It is very important that you base those jesters off the foundation of value and caring for people.

Do not use it as a means to dig deeper into their pockets, or a con job of horse doo-doo, but instead as a means to say “Thank You” and “I really appreciate your business”.  In other words, make it true value that comes from the heart of service.

  1. Develop the Trust Factor

This is one of if not the most important thing you must develop if you plan to have long-term success in your business, finances, relationships and life.  People must trust you.  This is a characteristic you cannot fake.  People invest in my services because of one main factor, they trust me.  Trust is something you cannot buy or borrow, it must be earned.  Trust comes from being transparent and honest with people, being a master of what you do, your product or service being the best on the market and you providing unparalleled value.

If you develop the reputation that you cannot be trusted, plan on living like a vagabond in the business world.  Being a person that cannot be trusted to keep your word, commitments or conducting business where you are always ending up with the bigger stick is a sure path to financial and business ruin.  If you cannot trust someone to return a phone call, do you think you can trust them to return value for your money?

The fastest path to cash is to understand, when you increase your value to the market place, you automatically increase your income and profits.  Work on creating value, and the money will take of itself.

And that is the Hidden Secret to Wealth.

Don’t Worry About Sales…

In the world of business and Entrepreneurship sales are the most vital ingredients of any company, for without sales the organization ceases to exist.  With all this pressure on a business, it is not unusual that everyone from the President to the Sales rep fight a constant battle of worry over sales so much that they walk around looking like they are wearing extra small underwear!  However, the key to Sales Success in not to worry about sales, but to focus on massive, constant, and daily prospecting and marketing activity.

If you focus on activity, sales will be the natural end result.  Double and triple your daily activity and sales will start showing up on their own.

Faith and Action

More people have become bitter and disillusioned, and extremely disappointed because they sought to reach their business and financial dreams with faith and belief alone.  But faith is not the absent of action, rather it is the Reason for action.  The Bible states that “Faith without Works (action) is Dead”.  Meaning, if you do not add action to your faith the results you are looking and hoping for will not come to pass.

You have to have a reason to believe you are going to get a harvest.  When you market and prospect everyday, you are like a farmer planting seed in the ground.  As long as the farmer plants seed in the ground, he has every Reason to believe and expect that he is going to get a harvest.  In other words his faith has substance.

Show me any professional entrepreneur or business that does not put prospecting and marketing as their top priority and I will show you a business that is or headed straight to financial problems.

On the other hand, no matter how severe a business is in trouble, it has a very high rate of survival and turning things around if it will revamp and restructure their marketing plan and system.

When people come to me and ask me what they need to do to make their business successful or get it out of financial trouble, my answer is the same.  In fact it is the same answer I give to successful business owners or professionals who want to become more successful.  Here is the plan I give them.  Stop trying to Sell Products and…

  1. Create An Audience by using lead generation products. 
  1. Develop a Following by giving them high value information and solving their problems. 
  1. Create an atmosphere of buying instead of an atmosphere of selling. 

Success and business solutions are quite simple, but we have been conditioned and trained to complicate things and make things far more difficult than they need to be.

Here is one thing to always remember;

Hard and Difficult Problems

Don’t Always Require Complicated Solutions

It is amazing how little hinges can swing open big heavy doors!  The same is true in life and business.  Whatever financial goals you or your business wants to achieve, the solution is very simple to implement.  Now, I did not say it was without effort, but it is something any average person can do.

What is the first step?  It is so simple and easy yet if I showed you the actual results of the number of people who actually take this simple step to achieve their goals was, it would blow a hole in your shorts the size of the Grand Canyon!

What is the first step?  Simply email me what you want and I will send back free of charge a plan how to get it.  How hard is that?

In closing today, I would like to it put it to you this way…

“It’s Not Faith and Action, It’s

Really Faith In Action That Produces

Success!”
