Happy Friday!I thought I would share an email I sent to my Working Mom Workouts list last year! It still applies today one year later as my daughter out of nowhere the other day asked to watch the movie again. You will see what I am talking about. Enjoy the last day of Summer!
I just love the Fall! I know I have said that before
but there is just something about opening the door and feeling that
cool crisp air hit you in the face!
Shoot, this past Summer for us it was like 85 degrees at 6 am, so
when I walk outside and it is 60 degrees I am a little giddy! And
since I am feeling a little kiddy today I wanted to write about
something I have been thinking about for a few months now!
A few months back my mother had recommended that we rent the movie
“Secretariat” and watch it with kids. Well, I was a little
reluctant only because my youngest daughter had yet to turn three
and we were not sure if she could sit through the entire movie.
Boy, were we wrong! Sit through the movie, shoot, as I am writing
this to you today my daughter wakes up every morning asking me to
put on “Secretariat.”
Yes, since the night we watched the movie my daughter has fallen in
love with horses and we not only rented “Secretariat” again but
finally purchased it for her birthday that just passed.
Let me tell you after watching it for the like umpteenth time I
feel like I can be an expert film critic. Now, if you have never
seen the movie I recommend you rent it and watch it because it
really is good and has some very good lessons in it, as is the case
with most Disney films!
And that is what I want to talk to you today about, a lesson that I
believe we all need to be reminded about. I know your time is
valuable, so I won’t go into the entire film but Secretariat won the
The “Triple Crown” has only been one by a few horses in history and
is almost considered to be an impossible feat to accomplish. And
during the time period of the movie the last “Triple Crown” winner
was some 25 years earlier, so the odds of Secretariat winning it
was very slim.
Now, here is where the lesson comes in. You see, what had happened
was the father and owner of the ranch had passed away, leaving the family at odds on what to do with the ranch and the taxes owed on it. Going against her family, the
daughter, Penney Tweedy, took over the ranch and put everything on the line. She didn’t care about the money or losing everything instead she believed in carrying out her dad’s legacy and was willing to sacrifice everything just to see the horse “run it’s race!”
The daughter turned down 8 million dollars because she believed
that much in what she was doing!
So, what does this have to do with you? Well, while we were
watching the movie I had said to my daughter, “Ady, run your race”
and she said back to me, “No Daddy, you run your race!”
And that is where it hit me. Each and everyone of us has our own
race to run. At times things be can extremely difficult and the
easiest option might be to sell out and quit.
However, all you need is a little belief. Believe that no matter
what happens you gave it your best and you didn’t quit!
The odds may be against you but the one thing that no one can take
away from you is your belief. I believe in you but you need to start
believing in you!
Now, go out and “Run Your Race!”
To your success,
Do you remember the song “Party Like it is 1999” by Prince? Man, I remember that song and the year like it was yesterday! As they say, “Those were the Good Old Days” and it was also the time period that I first started thinking about how to leverage my expertise as a personal trainer with the Internet. I mean if you had a dot com (name.com) you were bound to strike it rich and retire young back in those days. Shoot I remember all my friends telling me that they were going to cash in on their stock options and retire by the time they were 30. I was so jealous and wanted to come up with a way to leverage my knowledge and expertise and use the Internet but how was I going to do it. Well, unfortunately it was still a little to early to fully use the Internet to leverage your expertise but that is not the case today! It has never been easier and my dreams and goals of having a successful Internet business have finally come to fruition. Yours can too and if you follow these 3 steps you will be on your way to using your knowledge and expertise to make passive income online!
#1: Create An Offer. It all begins with creating a new offer. This is almost exclusively an “information” based product or service and includes small reports, ebooks, membership sites, physical products, coaching programs and software applications. It all hinges upon writing tiny, 7-15 page special reports. That’s all! And, if you don’t feel comfortable writing even these bite-sized reports, you can hire a “ghostwriter” to do it for you!
#2: Build A List. With a new offer created, you then send out multiple mailings to all of your lists. This, as you can imagine, creates a flurry of orders instantly … literally within minutes of sending out the mailing orders begin to arrive. Some who use this system have tens of thousands of subscribers on their lists and more coming in every single day.
#3: Notify Partners. Want to know what to do to generate “traffic” to your site? It’s simple: I notify my affiliates and partners of my new offers … and THEY do all of the work for you! Whether it’s a full-time affiliate manager, a member of an affiliate program or limited joint venture partners, almost 100% of the traffic in this system is generated by OTHER PEOPLE. And — get this — the lists that I mentioned earlier … those are built through partner traffic as well!
Simply put if you want to leverage your expertise and make passive income online all you need to do is implement these 3 simple ways. The beauty of this is it can be done in any niche and for any subject. I have always believed that if you have valuable information and want to reach a mass of people to help them with a particular problem they face, then it is your responsibility to get it out there. So, what are you waiting for get started today leveraging your knowledge and make some passive income online!
