Warning this is probable not for YOU!

In my recent post Money it’s a Gas, I mentioned that I would be looking for a small group of individuals to work with on a challenge thrown down in Mal Emery’s audio, the seven keys to making $100,000 in the next 100 days.

So here is the challenge and this is how it is going to work…

Let me start off by saying this is not going to be for the feint hearted or anyone that thinks they will be able to put in a half arsed attempt!

In fact it isn’t going to suit the majority of people that read this post. And that is fine because I only looking for a couple of highly motivated  rock the boat type individuals to come along on this journey with me.

First let me give you a bit of an insight into the way I think, to help you decide if you fit the profile.

My background is as a construction supervisor/superintendent. Which means I am use to working to tight deadlines and coming up with innovative ways to meet them. People either love working with me (which the majority do) or they hate it. There seems to be no middle ground. I will give you all of the support and idea’s that I can come up with to get you over the line. But this is going to be a huge challenge and it is going to take a considerable amount of effort on your part.

To get to that magical $100,000 mark (unless you are already achieving this result in which case you need a more qualified coach than me) you are going to have to spend a large amount of time outside of your comfort zone. That goes for me as well!

As you may have already gathered, I am not big on excuses barring a couple which are…

Family emergencies. Family comes first end of story! Because I am also aware that shit does just happen and life gets in the way sometimes,  I am also going to give you three get out of jail free cards that you can use if you get side tracked and don’t complete the tasks on time.

See I am all heart! Lol

So what are we going to do? And how are we going to get this challenge cross the line?

Time wise this is what is involved…

A group skype chat once a week, this won’t take up more than an hour it will be on every Sunday morning @ 7.00 am Eastern Daylight Saving Time.

You have to spend at least 10 minutes every day reading, listening or watching either Bob Proctor’s Six Step’s to Success or Think & Grow Rich.

Three times a week you must spend a minimum 30 minutes working on the action steps I set you for the week.

You are going to need the following tools

  • A self-hosted wordpress blog.
  • An email marketing service
  • A copy of Think & Grow Rich
  • A copy of  Zero to Millionaire in Three Years or Less in Your Own Business and Still Enjoy the Journey Along the Way
  • A webinar account ( I can show you where to get this free)
  • A budget for running some advertising
  • A burning desire to make it happen

If there are some tools you don’t have you can still get around it (except the burning desire) but it will take a bit more work to find free options.

If you want in this is what you need to do…

Step one in Mal Emery’s seven steps is money is made mentally before it is collected physically. So you need to work out what products/services you are going to sell. Eg if you have a $1000.00 product, then we know we have to sell 100 of them. So we have a tangible target to hit, and we can work out how we are going to achieve it.

I am going to give you until the 28th to work out what you are going to sell then email me telling me what your product/service is and that you are ready to start. My email is beanie1607atgmail.com (replace at with @) I also want to know exactly what you can bring to the table to help the rest of the group achieve this goal.

On the 29th I will send back an email to everyone that applied (I don’t expect many, as I have deliberately set out to put people off so that I get the right people on board straight up) to let them know if they are in.

So what is my guarantee?  Absolutely Nothing! It’s up to YOU

Cheers Beanie

awesome beanie, and yes it’s up to me!! When you said budget for advertising what are your thoughts? I believe branding is essential and an investment which should not be skimped on but not too sure actual advertising is needed for all businesses.

OH my gosh Beanie – what an amazing opportunity! Love that you are “putting this out there” for everyone to join 🙂

May the best people apply, and get out of their comfort zone !
Cheers

Hey Lisa, we are going to spend a great deal of time out of our comfort zones for sure!

Hey Lisa,

I used to think along similar lines to you when it came to advertising. But after recently listening to the I Love Marketing podcast, I have quickly come to change my mind. If you can run an ad that costs’s you a dollar, and you can continually make more than that dollar, you would be mad not to keep doing it. The way I see it there are three major problem’s when it comes to most businesses advertising.

1. They try to make the ad do to many things. An ad should be short and precise and only require the target to take an action like subscribe to listen to a free audio. An ad is only part of the sales process, not the whole box and dice.
2. The ad doesn’t convey a CRYSTAL Clear message, so the target has no idea what they should do next after they read the ad.
3. They don’t track the advertising so they have no idea whether it is actually creating or costing them money.

To me advertising (Whether paid or free) is essential for creating leads and cash flow, and it is also the quickest way to test what the market wants to buy,when you are creating new products.
