Welcome and thank you for Choosing Success!

Photo-aliceIf you weren’t able to make it to the recent Amazon Conference that was held in Seattle this past week, we have a very special treat for you.  Alice of Alice in Stitches, one of the speakers at the event, will be joining us on Tuesday to give a recap of the events including the ‘MUST know’ parts for utilizing this powerful selling channel.  Get call-in info below.

Speaking of great classes, we have back to back ones coming up next week with Colette Marshall, President of World Wide Brands.  We will be answering that #1 sourcing question – how do I find products that will make me a profit on eBay!  Save your spot on these very popular classes – see info below.

Also, I posted the following on Facebook, but for some reason a few of you aren’t on there yet.

eBay Partner Network’s latest announcement is causing quite a few people to scramble – this means no more Twitter/eBay affiliate love

Yep, eBay has posted a pretty dramatic announcement concerning their eBay Partner Network affiliate program.  This will affect your Twitter, Facebook, Squidoo and any other site where you don’t own the domain. You can find the post at http://www.ebaypartnernetworkblog.com/en/news/ebay-partner-network-policy-updates-effective-july-20th/

Blessings to a prosperous week,



Become a Rock Star – now is the time to commit to your Success




JanieruthMany of you, especially after seeing the Rock Stars in action while in Vegas, have been writing and asking when we are running our special membership pricing again ($1 a day to be a Rock Star).  WooHoo – today is the day!  AND if you are considering making the move to Choose Success and join us at Rock Stars, I would definitely make your decision quickly.  The special membership pricing is only good until 8/3/09 AND then it will not only be going back to ‘normal’ prices, but we have a price increase coming up too.

My financial advisors have been fussing for a while now about raising prices on Rock Stars and they have finally won out over my insistence to the contrary.  But I made them promise to first give you a chance to join at the special membership pricing we only offer a couple times a year before they raise the prices.


Now before I continue, please note – ALL Rock Stars, while they are RS’s, are grandfathered into the great price they signed up at and it will never go up as long as they are members of Rock Stars – woohoo!


The advisors showed me the other education marketplaces, and they are right…no one comes close to offering what we do for the price (or truth be told, have the success we do).  In fact one company on the comparison report the advisors showed me teaches similar subjects to ours, but only does 2 classes a month and charges $79 a month!  Some of the other ‘education sites’ the advisors reviewed are all within about $10 to $15 of the membership price to Rock Stars, but they don’t even come close to having:

  • Almost 400 hours of Success education
  • An additional 10+ hours of training each month including weekly LIVE coaching calls with me AND a monthly Live call where we review your eBay Stores
  • Topics that include not just eBay, but Amazon, Etsy, SEO, marketing, motivation, sourcing and much more
  • Classes that include step-by-step training videos with easy navigation links to the others sites mentioned during the class
  • Access to a powerful network of guests from my personal address files
  • And none of them come even close to the phenomenal group of Rock Stars we have on this site – supportive, encouraging, helpful, enthusiastic, and truly success minded.




I want to reassure you that we aren’t cutting back on the amount of classes we do, in fact we have recently bumped up the amount of classes we are teaching!  AND there is a powerful multi-series class starting the first week of August on Profitable Keywords – an OSI Rock Star exclusive.


Here are the limited time membership options:


$15 a week ~ Only offered for a limited time ~ Your membership price will never go up as long as you continue to be a Rock Star!

$49.00 per month ~ Normally $59 retail ~ save $10 a month ~ For those who want to check out the Success Tour Bus

$365 a year ($1 a day!) ~ Normally $708 ~ save $343


Starting 8/3/09 all of these prices will go up.  Again, you are grandfathered in to your RS price and it will never go up.

Upcoming Classes


New Classes

Thank you so much to all of you who are sending in ideas for new classes and the series you would like to see on Rock Stars.

One of the suggestions was more ‘mini classes’ that are 30 minutes less for the busy on the go people.  Another great suggestion was easier access to me.   Because of these two great ideas, we are going to try something for awhile and see if it works for you.  Instead of having one 2-hour Ask Janelle class each month – where you have to save up all your questions for that one time, we are going to try having a shorter Ask Janelle class each Thursday starting this week.  And remember, even if you can’t make the live coaching call, you can still send in your questions and listen to the replay.


New Classes coming up…


Hey…get registered ASAP for these classes. All OSI Live classes are fr-ee to attend and instructions are included during the registration process for both the podcasts and the webinars. When the class says, OSI Rock Star Exclusive, only OSI Rock Stars are allowed to attend.

Remember, you can either ask a question or simply put “I Choose Success” in the question box.
