Hi <$firstname$>,

Time to keep working on your book

This is still the year of the book. If you haven't started yours yet, there is plenty of time to get going. A couple of quick tips:

  • Be sure to outline your book before you start writing. The preplanning will save you a lot of time.

  • Be clear on who your audience is and what your big message is.

  • Write every day.

There are a lot of good programs from friends of mine coming up. Take a moment and look at them. Hopefully I will see you on some of the calls.

Nancy Marmolejo's special call and teleclass

I'd like you to meet my good friend Nancy Marmolejo of Viva Visibility. She's hosting a very powerful teleclass on Feb 3 at 6pm Eastern Time: "Live Business Makeovers: Where's YOUR Profitable Essence™?"

Be sure to sign up here:http://www.profcs.com/app/?af=1121490 )

Were you able to make my Jan 21 call with Nancy, " Are You Living Your Profitable Essence™?"
If you missed it, you missed a lot of juicy gems, including:

  • A clear overview of how knowing your Profitable Essence™ can pay off with new clients, referrals, and endless opportunities

  • Why signing up for more classes to help you sell, market, manifest, or be more efficient have NOTHING to do with your immediate challenges… and what you can do to make those investments finally pay off!

  • 10 questions you MUST ask yourself if you’re serious about the success of your business (download her bonus Profitable Essence Assessment for sure!)

  • Before and After case studies of real entrepreneurs just like you who’ve experienced dramatic results simply by discovering this secret ingredient

  • An invitation to a Live Business Makeover with Nancy

I have GOOD news. You can STILL get your hands on the recording AND the assessment. Here's the link:


How to Create Emotional Connections

I’d like to introduce you to a couple of friends of mine – Karen Talavera and Mande White – who will show you the vital ingredient missing in so many online marketing programs.

(Ready to cut to the chase? You can sign up here.)

So, just what is this essential secret online marketing needs to include for success in 2010 and beyond?

Emotional Connections!

Yes, you need to make emotional connections! It’s been proven time and again that people buy for two reasons: to solve problems and to make themselves feel good. What you might not know is that regardless of motivation, our human nature is to buy from our hearts, not from our heads.

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about Karen and Mande’s free tele-class: “From Stalled to Soaring: THE 5 ESSENTIAL SECRETS TO EMOTIONALLY CONNECTING WITH YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE to Increase Visibility, Deepen Customer Relationships, and Boost Revenue in 2010” on Thursday February 4 at 2:00 pm Eastern/11:00 am Pacific. To reserve your spot now go here.

Here's some of what you'll learn:

  • Why emotional connections are essential to online – and total – marketing success today, and how to create them through online conversations.

  • What “the tipping point” is and why reaching it is critical if you ever want to achieve viral word-of-mouth growth.  

  • The top two ways to set yourself apart in your field online, develop a loyal following, and create profitable customer relationships that stick.

Blair Singer's "Bookinar" Program

This is unique. My friend Blair Singer is presenting a powerful series of teleseminars using his new book, Little Voice Mastery, as the text. It's all about putting that often negative little voice that chatters in your head to rest for good.

I don't have room here to go into all the details but I am impressed with the program Blair has put together. Get the details here.
