The fastest way to become a successful entrepreneur yourself is to learn from other successful entrepreneurs. I want to introduce you to two enormously successful (we’re talking millionaires here) who have had a tremendous impact on my success.
I am not exaggerating when I say that what I learned from these two guys has helped me to literally double my income. One helped me generate $80,000 in less than a week.
But to me, it’s never been all about making money. I have had the pleasure of personally working with and learning from both of these amazing entrepreneurs. And what impresses me as much as their marketing know-how is that they are both huge advocates of giving back and helping the “little guy.”
Don’t Know How to Market Your Business?
If you want to have a small business – but have no idea how to market it – you need to know my friend Jeff Walker.
Jeff first built his reputation by helping most of the big millionaire internet marketers to do seven figure product launches. But you don’t have to be an internet marketer to benefit from Jeff’s teachings. In fact, you don’t even have to necessarily know what you plan to sell to get started.
I could go on and on about how Jeff’s product launch system not only inspired me to finally stop “thinking” about launching my Outside the Job Box Career Consultant Training Program and actually DO IT – but was THE key to me making a little over $80,000 in about a week.
There is obviously more to this story. But since you can go hear my whole “Lakeside Product Launch” story at http://profitingfromyourpassioncoach.com, I want to stick to what all this has to do with you…
The point is that Jeff’s marketing training program has helped hundreds of regular people just like you launch their own small businesses in such diverse niches as health food, knitting, horse training, even a business coaching in Poland.
Each one did four and five figure product launches using the same marketing strategies. You can use the same formula to market a service, a workshop, a conference, a book, a CD, or just about any other kind of product –your own or someone else’s.
I know because I’ve met and talked with at least 50 of these now successful entrepreneurs in person.
The overwhelming majority had no previous marketing experience… and I do mean NO EXPERIENCE.
In addition to being a marketing genius, Jeff is one of the most down to earth people you’ll ever meet. To “meet” Jeff and to get a really good overview of his Product Launch Blueprint, click here to watch a short 20 minute video.
The only reason this video is available is that sometime next week Jeff plans to release a limited number of his product launch training program. The last time he did was this was back in March and they sold out in 36 hours.
I don’t want you to miss out and have to wait another seven to 12 months. If you are really serious about jumpstarting your business and becoming successful faster, then I highly recommend you get a head start by signing up to watch some case studies of real people (like me!) who have used Jeff’s program.
Jeff is giving away a lot of really great information in the videos. So even if you ultimately decide not to buy his program watching the videos will still be very beneficial.

Become Successful Faster
The other person I want you to meet is Yanik Silver. I talked to you about Yanik earlier this week.
What I didn’t mention was that last spring I completed an application to join Yanik’s Mastermind. Little did I know then what a difference being in a group of successful entrepreneurs would make in my business… and in my life.
Yanik’s own story is fascinating. He is recognized as one of the leading experts on web marketing even though he still considers himself, like me, a “techno dunce.” Obviously it didn’t hold him back because he was already a millionaire at age 31.
A little over a year ago, Yanik combined his sense of adventure and zest for life and merged it with entrepreneurial success into a business called Maverick Business Adventures.
Maverick Business Adventures is an invitation-only membership exclusively for highly successful entrepreneurs, CEOs and business owners who want to live life to the fullest, create business breakthroughs and give back through charity and education to empower disadvantaged youth to become entrepreneurs.
Like I told you earlier, I share Yanik’s passion for working with young people, so I tossed caution to the wind and joined the Maverick group too!
Joining the Maverick group has been an amazing experience. Not being terribly athletic, the “adventure” part of the program definitely takes me out of my comfort zone — like rappelling off a cliff which, once you get past the terror part, is actually a lot of fun.
But I also get to meet and learn from some phenomenally successful entrepreneurs. People like Frank McKinney whom I met in Aspen. Frank builds $35 million dollar seaside mansions on spec. That’s also where I got to dine with Carl Banks — the former NY Giants Super Bowl champ turned mega-entrepreneur.
Now, even if you did qualify to join the Maverick group, you may not be the adventure travel type. But guess what – you don’t have to!
Yanik’s newest mission is to bring the wisdom of these success entrepreneurs to the masses in a new program called the Maverick Business Insider.
To get the word out, Yanik is offering what he calls an “ethical bribe” by giving away a ton of great resources – all for free.
All you have to do is pay for shipping and handling and you’ll receive an information-rich package containing Yanik’s “34 Rules for Maverick Entrepreneurs” book, poster and a CD interview where national best-selling author of “Conversations with Millionaires” Mike Litman interviews Yanik.
But that’s not all. You’ll also receive Yanik’s $15,000 Closed Door Session blueprint that points out Instant Leverage Points that can instantly increase your bottom line.
Plus, you’ll get the first issue of the Maverick Business Insider newsletter and audio of an interview with a successful entrepreneur who created a seven figure business with a single eBook. All and all, it’s a pretty amazing deal.
And, if you’re one of the first to buy, Yanik will throw in even more amazing bonus material — all for ONLY the cost of shipping and handling.
Why would he give so much away? Because Yanik knows how good his stuff is. And because it is SO GOOD he knows that a significant number of people will want more.
So, if you choose to remain a Maverick Business Insider, you’ll continue to receive a new interview every month with a new entrepreneur at a very reasonable cost. Learn more about this amazing program at http://ChangingCourse.com/recommends/yanik
You know I’m a big advocate of recognizing the opportunities around you. And, I also choose the opportunities that I share with my subscribers very carefully. This week has been filled with possibilities.
If you’re really ready to make your dreams come true, I *highly* recommend that you check these amazing individuals. But, I also want to be clear that they are offering two different kinds of information.
So think about where you are in your transition of moving you closer to your goal of turning your interests into income. For example, Yanik’s program will apply to any entrepreneur while Jeff’s program is really geared more for someone who already has or is planning to do business online by creating a list and then creating and selling information, products, seminars, or some other kind of product or service.

Dreamer in Residence
P.S. As a Maverick member I also have the chance to network with and learn from dozens of less famous but also really successful and interesting entrepreneurs. For some great tips for people who want to change course, including some from Yanik himself, check out this cool video Lisa helped me put together from my Aspen trip: http://ChangingCourse.com/maverick.htm)
P.P.S. Both of these guys can help you achieve your dream of changing course. But it’s up to you to take the first step… The key is to begin.
