I started my online business back in 1996 while still a
crew member on active duty with the United States Air
I was a C-130 navigator who often put in 18-hour
“crew duty days” and THEN sat down at my computer and
worked on my fledgling Internet Marketing efforts. It
was NOT unusual for me to fall asleep while typing on
my computer and to wake up with a screen full of zzzzzz’s
from my hand resting on the keyboard 🙂
Back then, I was at the 14 year point in my military
career, and I wasn’t sure that I wanted to stay for
another 6 years before I was eligible to retire. That
was also during a period when the military was doing a
“Reduction In Forces” due to budget cuts. So, all branches
of the military were mandated to look at where they could
“trim the fat” and that meant forcing a LOT of soldiers to
leave. Some were offered an early retirement option.
I was in what was considered a critical career field, so
I was NOT eligible for the early retirement even if I
So, one day, I simply DECIDED that I was not going to
wait until retirement to start building my own business…
something that I had dreamed of since before I started
college in the fall of 1977!
I looked around on the internet and stumbled across
people who had already started online businesses. There
were very few really teaching HOW to build a successful
online business BECAUSE very few had actually done it!
I managed to stumble across a few “successes,”
subscribed to their newsletters, PRINTED OUT many copies
of their newsletter to read while out flying across the
The ONE THING that they all taught was that you needed
to build a list. They taught that you needed to:
– Identify a group of people with a common problem,
concern or passion
– Find a viable solution for their problem, concern or
– Let them know that you had that solution and get them
on a mailing list
– Follow up with them discussing their interest and your
solution until they grew to “know, like and trust you”
and then they would eventually BUY your proven solution.
That formula hasn’t really changed 24 years later. The
only real difference is that now there are SO MANY people
offer these “solutions” that you need to offer “an ethical
bribe” to get people to join your list. That bribe is
often an ebook, audio, vidoe, white page, checklist,
access to a membership site, some webinar training, etc.
As I’ve taught the EXACT same formula that my mentors
taught me right from the very start (and I’ll single out
Jim Daniels), I’ve noticed one big PROBLEM.
People would listen to your solution and then always
find an EXCUSE. In my military background, excuses were
simply unacceptable. You found a way to do what was at
first often seemingly impossible. So, I didn’t make
excused for not just USING the proven formula.
However, I accepted that others perceived that they had
real stumbling blocks. The one most often stated was not
having any extra money to invest. YES, they had money for
beer, cigarettes, cable TV with 100 channels, and almost
anything else that they wanted… just no money to start
a business 🙂
Today, please allow me to call you on your BS, if that’s
Here’s a very simple, step-by-step formula that you can
implement starting TODAY!
1) Get a free Aweber autoresponder account. You’ll need
that to host your list and send out broadcasts. The
free account is good for up to your first 500 subscribers.
By the time you reach 500 subscribers you should be earning
more than enough money in commissions or from selling your
own products to cover your expenses and have extra for your
regular LIVING expenses.
If you need to locate products to sell on a commission
basis, just ask me, or practically ANYONE on social media,
and you’ll get plenty of recommendations!

Do that now. It costs you absolutely NOTHING. You won’t
even be asked for your credit card information or have any

2) Use an opt-in form hosted at Aweber IF you don’t have a
website so that you have some place to send people to sign

I made the very simple DECISION 24 years ago that I was going to
take action and improve my life. In deciding to start my own
business, I also decided to take responsibility for the type
of future that I would have.
TODAY, I look at the fact that tens of millions of people are
out of work in the U.S. along. Countless businesses have shut
down, and many will never reopen their doors. My online
businesses is affected very little by this. INSTEAD it gives
me the HONOR of showing those who are ready, the path to a
more secure future.
It’s NOT magic and it won’t happen overnight without some effort.
I’m a 24-year overnight success 🙂 Actually, I was fairly
successful right from the very start because I was WILLING to
learn from those who were already doing what I wanted to do.
