Learn to Organize

Mind Set

Learning how to organize, focus, persist and delegate are extremely important attributes to have in order to reach your full potential.  I was talking to my good friend and master entrepreneur Joseph Botelho about success and we both agreed that success is important but the aim in life is to create “Significance”.  Significance entails everything you would find in success like wealth, achievement, awards, fame, recognition, dreams and power but adds these 3 elements to it:

  1. What are you going to leave behind that will continue to better your family and humanity after you are gone?  Will people remember your name 50 years after you are gone?  Shoot most people are forgotten 50 days after they kick the bucket.  This is why I think everyone should be a published author.  We still read books that are over 100 years old today keeping that persons message and memory alive and their message continues to bless generations.
  2. Is what you do making a positive impact on people?  Are you making the lives of people better with what you bring to the marketplace?
  3. Love is the greatest force on earth.  I wish I could honesty say or describe what true love is or how it works, but I can’t.  What I can tell you is that we can see it and recognize it when it appears in our life from another human being.  It comes through the eyes, words, touch, compassion, forgiveness, empathy, caring, giving and acting. Love is much too powerful to contain in words, it has to be expressed in action.  What teen age boy has not told his girl friend “If you love me you will have my baby” That is not love, that is growing out of control hormones in full swing!

I encourage you to take a look at your life and revamp it not just to attain success but take it one step higher to “Significance”.

Do You Have The Millionaire Habit?

“Saving a Part of Your Income Each Week and Putting It into Gold” 

 “Our mission is to educate you about the importance of owning Gold Bullion so that you can make an intelligent decision about your financial future”

Shameless Self Promotion

stock-photo-15246083-green-businessman-in-touch-with-natureTo operate in the world of business and conducting it honorably, professionally, successfully and profitably is not for the faint in heart, timid, shy or fearful. It takes boldness, assertiveness, courage, risk, strength, faith and a willingness to exercise “Shameless Self Promotion”.  Success comes the day you get excited about “You” (or your company, product or service).

When you believe down deep in your heart your cause, mission and “you” are the greatest thing since the discovery of sliced cheese; your automatic promotion system will kick in.  This has nothing to do with ego, pride or greed; it has everything to do with understanding the rules of business, service, profit and success.

If you are going to create the income and lifestyle you desire, you are going to have to engage in an all out massive campaign of promoting you!

The story is told that Madonna before she was famous and discovered would write her name all over bus benches and walls.  When her boyfriend asked her why she did that she said “Someday Everybody will know the name Madonna”.  From the get go, she understood the dynamics of Shameless Self Promotion.

Here are five powerful ways to promote yourself and position yourself for higher income and business expansion.

1. Become An Author   This is by far the most effective and powerful way to promote yourself, be recognized in the marketplace as a leader and expert, put yourself ahead of your competition, penetrate markets you would otherwise be unable to reach, build credibility and lay a strong foundation towards building the trust factor with customers, clients and

Everyone has a millionaire within.

probable prospects.

2. Marketing Photos Marketing photos are photos you take with leaders in your industry and Celebrities and if possible have them hold up your product line.  The more photos you take the more impressive “You” become.  Taking photos with Celebrities and then posting them on your website and social media sites go a very long way in building credibility perception, and the more the marketplace sees you with the “in-crowd” the more they desire to do business with you.

3. Write A Daily Blog If you don’t like to write or have time to write a daily blog, hire someone to do it for you!  They are called “Ghost Writers”.  If you want me to write your blog I will be happy to do that, you get the credit I get the cash, works for me. Writing a daily blog is one of the best investments you could ever make in promoting yourself and business.  The key to all business success is to create an audience, turn that audience into a loyal following, which will organically turn them into paying customers.

4. Get On You-Tube Start creating some informational or entertaining videos.  You can get your own YouTube channel and can post as many videos as you like.  In fact, the more you post and publish the more web time you will have.  You have no need to fear that you have no camera talent.  Look at Dr. Oz, this guy in my opinion has to be one of the most untalented individuals that ever stepped in front of a camera yet millions of people watch his show.  To have a lady come on your show on national television and talk about “Vagina Farts”…you have got to be kidding me, but Dr. Oz did it!

Look, if Donald Trump can step in front of a camera with the hair dew he wears, you should have nothing to fear to get in front of one and start filming.  By the way, I think Donald Trump and Dr. Oz are great guys and I have the most utter respect for both of them.  They are true champions in their field, and both prove that it takes no skill or talent to be successful on television, so get your buns in front of the camera and start filming!

5. Get Others To Promote You One of the biggest benefits of being a published author in our Power of Mentorship books is that you have 19 other well establish leaders, some who have lists that are over 100,000 all promoting the book, and because you are in the same book, they are in fact promoting you to their private customers and contacts.  I was with a good friend a few years ago in a book store where he saw our books on a shelf.  He looked at me and said, “You are the only guy I know who gets other people to write their book and you get all the credit for it”.  It sounds funny and crazy, but it is true, that is called the power of having others promote you or “Shameless Self Promotion”.

Are You The Best Kept Secret In Your Industry?

Are you the best kept Secret in your industry?  One reason so many extraordinary talented people never reach international fame or earn what they are worth is because they fall into the above category of being the best kept Secret in town.  The two undeniable facts in business are;

  1. The world is filled with extraordinary talented people, who have the skills, talent, ambition, drive and everything else needed to make themselves a worldwide success but lack just one thing; they are undiscovered in the world. Or to sum it up; They are the best kept Secret in the marketplace.
  1. The world (marketplace) has an unlimited amount of people who are willing to pay untold fortunes to receive the goods, benefits, services and products offered by those unknown talented people.

As Donald Trump has said; The first step to be successful is going from a nobody to a somebody!  What that really means is, do not allow yourself to fall into the category of being the best kept Secret in the marketplace.

Find the leader within who you are.

What always amazes me is when I come across a teacher for the first time and I hear them speak, or read their book which contains mind boggling information and I say; where in the fart-coon have you been?  Then I pass out when I learn they have been teaching this stuff for 20 years and are unknown.

The reason we have such a wide gap between these two factors is due to a misconception.

The misconception is:  If I am the best in my industry, and work hard at being the best that I can, and my products, services, skills and talents bring untold benefits to others with exceptional value and a competitive price that will bring me global success.

The Truth is: The key to massive success in business is being accessible to the marketplace; and the way to increase your accessibility factor is by being well known to the people who are happy to pay you a fortune for what you have and what you do!

Write this down; “If you make it a goal to be well known in the marketplace, your financial troubles will be well gone.”

Take Control of Your Present and Future!

Strangers often ask me; “what do you do” My answer is…

“I help people have control of their present and future”

You see, all true happiness, success and fulfillment comes from the foundation of us being (or at least feeling like we are) in control of our finances, relationships, health, spirituality, and business.  Feeling out of control of our finances is why so many experience mental and emotional anguish during this recession.

If your financial fortune (whatever that may mean to you) is in tact, you may not be able to control the national economy, but you are in control of your personal economy and that will allow you to experience peace of mind instead of the heartache of panic.

Being in control of your income, cash flow, and business does not happen by accident, but is the result of proper planning, progressive marketing, innovative alliances and powerful connections (networks).  The very things that many business people neglect to do and then blame everything but themselves because their lack of cash is out of control.

You can take control of your present and future business income and become highly visible in the marketplace by becoming a Co-Author in our Power of Mentorship book series.  It’s time you stop being the Best Kept Secret In Town and Take Control of your Finances.

Did You Know There Is Such A Thing As A Positive Virus?

When we hear the word “Virus” we automatically put a negative connotation to it due to linking it to disease of the body and/or an electronic element that destroys our computer files.

A “Virus” is simply a substance-element that transports information to a host which in turns carries it to other hosts in an accelerated manner, many times in a manner that is unstoppable.  Now, when that carrier (virus) is an element that destroys things like the human body or computer files, then of course it is a bad and negative thing.

“The Millionaire Virus”

But what if that “Virus” or carrier infected a host like the mass marketplace, at an accelerated pace that was unstoppable with a positive element like your branding, message, product and service; what would that be called?  Well, it has many names like;

  • Massive Success
  • Massive Exposure
  • Instant Cash Flow
  • Perpetual Income

However we could sum it up in three simple words:  “The Millionaire Virus”

What are the positive effects of the Millionaire Virus? You transform from being the Best “Kept” Secret in your Industry to…

In closing remember, it’s what you do or don’t do today that determines your tomorrow.  Your current income is a result, not an accident.  What are you going to do about today so that you can double and triple it in the future?

The Law of Activity

Have you ever tried to exercise the Law of Attraction and did not seem to get the results you were hoping for?  I think everyone on the planet has!  Just like anything new, the Law of Attraction has a leaning curve as well.  However, you can save yourself a lot of heartache, disappointment, frustration and problems if you just realize that the “Law of Activity” is what activates and makes the “Law of Attraction” work.  In the crudest way I can put it, basically the Law of Attraction is not going to do anything for you until you work your rear end off at your profession or goal.

Expect miracles; just do not expect them to happen overnight! Miracles do happen and although I am a firm believer in divine intervention, the basis of miracles are the results, the after math, the positive consequences if you will, of doing the right things that are headed in the right direction over a period of time..  These are the three key ingredients miracles are made up of:

  1. Right actions
  2. In the right direction
  3. Consistently done over a period of time 

Violate any of these three elements and you will not see miracles in your life and business, you will see mediocrity at all levels.  What got me through many of winter storms is no matter how hard things got, no matter what the outside circumstances portrayed; with an iron will I forced myself to keep taking right actions, in the right direction, everyday.

What were those actions and direction I took everyday?  They are the three things I have been proclaiming for the past 10 years from the mountain top;

1. Keep marketing your business even when the marketplace is not buying your products   The marketplace always regains its appetite and that is why you keep going even when they are not feeding.  What do 97 percent of business people do?  Give up!

2. Exposure:  Keep exposing your business and what you do and you will meet the right contacts that will unlock the bank vault for you. You are one contact way from having the floodgates of cash flow to you.

3 Associations:  I love what Donald Trump teaches; the first step to success is going from being a nobody to a somebody.  How do you do that?  Do something with people who already are a somebody!

When it comes to business growth, we cannot control who will say Yes and who will say No to our offer, but what we can control is our daily activity of how many people we make that offer too.  We get into financial trouble when we expect growth without the proper marketing activity.

law of attractionOne of the most amazing people I have ever known in my life is my friend Manny and we have been best friends for the past 35 years.  Why Manny is so amazing is he is like a Bumble Bee, defying science.  According to the law of physics due to the size of the body of the Bumble Bee and its wing span, it is scientifically impossible for it to fly.  But don’t tell the Bumble Bee that because he does not know it, and so he just zooms in the air anyway.

Manny too defies all business logic in the way he dresses and conducts business.  How he runs an extremely profitable business is mind-blowing and beyond my understanding, in fact Manny himself did not understand how he did it.  So for more than 30 years we just named him “The Phenomena”  But then a couple of years ago it dawned on me his Secret.  This guy is never moved by the word “No” and he never stops marketing his business from the time he gets up to the time he goes to bed.

It does not matter where or who he is with, he is promoting his company non stop, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  Even if you have no need for his sign company, you are going to hear about his company and what he can do for you, even if you live under a bridge!

You can do almost everything the wrong way in business and still succeed beyond your wildest dreams as long as you daily use the Law of Activity in marketing your business.

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.

How Effective Is Your Business Card?

Depending to grow your business and income on the power of your business card is like shooting Godzilla with a pea shooter and thinking that big monster is going to kill over.  No one in their right mind would be that stupid to believe that…Right? (Please say yes).  Yet millions of professionals and business owners go out into the marketplace with that mighty card expecting that they are going to change their financial and business conditions around for the better.

How effective are business cards?

As a business owner like any other profession, you need more customers, more sales, and more bottom line profits.  So let me ask you, how many clients, referrals and money can you directly trace back to being results of your business card?

The fact is business cards and brochures as important as they are when everything is said and done are really poor performers in the area of marketing and generating revenue.  The three major reasons are:

1. Business cards have been used for 100 years and have exhausted its uniqueness.

2. Everybody uses them, and no matter how fancy or how much money you spend on them, it does not make you stand out from the rest of the business cards your competitors are passing out.

3. The fact is, far too many business cards end up in the trash can.

However, there is one type of business card that Never ends up in a trash can, which is really not a business card but a book that functions as a business card on steroids!

Most professionals and even many authors do not understand the many functional uses of a book to generate new business, new customers and fresh revenue.  Most believe that the only function of a book is to create revenue from selling it.  But the truth of the matter is; a book sold brings a few coins to your wallet but a book given away returns Financial Independence.

My personal friend and mentor Bob Proctor taught me this secret of using a book as a lead generator.  He uses it to generate millions of dollars of revenue and every known International speaker/author uses this same system.  I proved this system works by creating the Power of Mentorship book series that now have 220,000 printed copies in the marketplace and a million e-book versions in the marketplace worldwide.The Power of Mentorship Books

 Here are 5 major reasons to become a co-author in our upcoming Power of Mentorship book.

  • It positions you as an expert in your field
  • It gives you credibility being featured with International leaders
  • It gives you another product to generate revenue
  • It becomes your business card on steroids
  • It is the most effective marketing tool on the planet with zero cost 

 

In closing, take out your business card and look at it, then ask it, “How Much Money Did You Make Me Today?”  If your answer is “Not Enough” it’s time to become one of our Co-Authors and put your business card on Steroids!

Thanks for spending this time with us today, and we love reading your positive post!  Keep them coming and we will keeping sending you ideas on how you can take control of your money and create…”Predictable Wealth”.
