“All of our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.”

– Walter Elias Disney

A Successful entrepreneur is confident enough to pursue their dreams and humble enough to know that they won’t happen without others.

One of my favorite entrepreneurs is Walt Disney whose love of drawing alone couldn’t fulfill his hopes and dreams.  He knew that he had to surround himself with people who could make that dream a reality.  Walt was humble enough and brilliant enough to not be a martyr in pursuing his dream, but thankful that there were people, talented enough to make him a Success.

Be mindful that you can’t do this yourself – there is a person/people, software, or company that will help you achieve your dreams.  And always be thankful of those in your world that use their talents to make those dreams a reality for you.  I just received this great email from one such person – although this is a thank you to many people in her life, it’s no less important AND it’s a brilliant use of YouTube.  She has been actively using YouTube in promotion of her business for a while.  I recommend subscribing to her YouTube channel to watch her marketing brilliance.

Don’t forget to thank those in your life who have helped get you to where you are now and where you are going tomorrow!

Hi there,

It has been entirely too long since I gave you a proper acknowledgement or Thank You for your support and friendship.  So I made this little video today so I could say what I wanted to say face to face:

Thank You Video

If you are on dial up or are unable to view this video, I will simply add some text here to express my deepest gratitude.  So many, many people touch our lives on a daily basis and sometimes they don’t even realize how much they have contributed to our very existence.  A smile, a kind word, even a quick look in the eyes…

This may not seem like very much to everyone.  But it matters to me.  In some way you have contributed something to my life and I wanted you to know that it has not gone unnoticed.

Our Rock Star Promoters are currently in training on How to Profitably Blog and the other Rock Stars will be joining the training next week in our Exclusive Blog training class (another really great reason to join Rock Stars!):

THIS JUST IN! Exclusive for Rock Stars ONLY! Learn to Blog

From their initial first blog posts, the Rock Stars are already seeing some pretty exciting results:

  • Almost all of them have moved up in their Google rankings (with many ending up on the first page of Google!)
  • They are seeing increases in sales
  • And one has already caught the attention of two major authors over a blog entry she posted last week!


We will be covering the best practices/basics for getting a website going and the marketing…however, there is A LOT to setting up and running a full-time blog.  If you are looking for assistance in doing yours (or if you want it integrated into your own website), our fabulous Dany of Ghost Leg Media offers those services.   You can read more about it here:  She also offers a great free e-book (white paper) on that site about the differences between and – I would HIGHLY recommend reading it before class this Thursday.
