Why 97% of people will never achieve success; you?

This could make you angry (I’m just calling it the way I see it) or you might know someone you need to forward this to.

You’ve probably heard about the 80/20 rule.  20% of people in a group/company/industry will produce 80% of the results.  It’s also true that 20% of your activities will produce 80% of your results/income/happiness.

What you may not know is that only 3% of people every become really successful or reach their full potential.  Out of 100 people who set a goal, only 3 will follow through and achieve it.

Why? They don’t have a plan. They don’t know what they want their life/business/relationship to look like, so of course, they have no step-by-step blueprint to get there.

Guess what? They also don’t get results they like either.

Be on this teleseminar Tuesday and I’ll share how you can be in the 3%:

How did I figure this out?

I was in a mentoring organization for entrepreneurs in 2001/2002 with about 400 people. We met every quarter and were exposed to top experts in many fields to help us grow personally and professionally. I was brand new as an entrepreneur and didn’t even have an idea of what I wanted to do when I joined this group.

And yet, by being open to opportunities showing up that would help me figure out what my path was going to be in my new life, I became one of those 3%. In fact looking back to this large group of people who had paid several thousands of dollars to be in this group, I think the success rate was even less than 3%.

I find that really sad.  But one thing I observed early on was that not everyone who spends money really wants to get a result. Some people have convinced themselves that the simple act of signing up and spending money is action that will move them forward.

That is an illusion.

The only thing that will move you forward is participation, full-out 100% engagement.

It doesn’t even have to be something that you pay for.  There are teleseminars, videos, audios all over the Internet that offer plenty of great content on a variety of subjects. So you can’t use the excuse that you can’t afford the help you need.  That’s simply not the case.

Like this teleseminar packed with great content for you:

I’ve had some terrific questions come in from those of you who have already registered for tomorrow’s call and I’m looking forward to answering every single one!

But guess what?

Even though people are signing up for the call about how to create the life of your dreams and the business to fund it, 97% have no questions!

I shouldn’t be shocked, but I am. There are 2 possible explanations for this. (I hope it’s the second.) So it’s time for some tough love.

The first explanation could be that, following the 3% rule, these people are kidding themselves about wanting a result different than what they are getting now.

They have an opportunity to get individual help and they aren’t taking advantage of it.  Passively listening to a teleseminar hoping that someone else has asked a question that will be the answer for what’s preventing you from being successful is crazy.

I hope it’s this explanation:
You don’t have the clarity necessary to even know what it is you need help with. This is easy to correct. This is more common than you would think and the biggest issue that keeps people stuck.

Lack of clarity comes from not knowing the correct questions to ask yourself to get clear. I can help you with that-especially if you ask me a question to give me a clue where you’re stuck.

If you’re not clear, you’re spinning around in circles doing a lot of tasks, working really hard, and not knowing what it is that will really move you forward. You’re overwhelmed, losing your enthusiasm for what you’re doing and don’t know what to do next.

If this is the case, you really need to be on the call.

…and please ask a question, even if it’s just to tell me you’re overwhelmed, so I know how to help you when we talk.

See you Tuesday!

What do Frank Kern & I Have In Common?

The subject line of Frank’s email to me was about him being on MTV Cribs. That was weird enough, and that’s not really what the video is about.

The “official” title is called “How To Get Rich” and when I first heard that, I was ready for some good old fashioned hype.

But what I got instead was funny and inspiring video that’s full of excellent content.

This is a great new video from Frank Kern:

Most interesting was that after the first few minutes touring Frank’s La Jolla crib, (I love his bed frame) he went into his 4 point plan for getting rich that is exactly aligned with what we’ll be talking about on our teleseminar Tuesday. His video is a perfect preview for our call!

Frank talks to you about implementing the core principles we’ll discuss in marketing and I’ll follow up with you on Tuesday by talking to you about the bigger picture of applying them to create your life.

So stop what you’re doing, indulge in the brief house tour and then get ready to take some notes on how to get rich. He’s telling you the straight truth of what it takes.

See Frank’s video here:

Seriously. If you want a dose of inspiration and common sense, this is for you:

Create Your Personal Blueprint for Life

If you’ve been a subscriber of mine for a while you know this has been an  interesting year of growth for me. There have been some exciting changes and some challenges to overcome.

Through it all I have been able to live a truly magical lifestyle and have my business accommodate whatever I chose to do, even when major plans changed.

So many people have asked me how I’ve handled the divorce, moving to another state and changes I’ve made in my business all without the littlest hiccup. (Personally, there were some hiccups.)

On Tuesday in a free teleseminar I will share my secrets with you. I’ll show you how I’ve consciously designed my life over the last 30+ years so that nothing takes me off course for more than a minute or two. And how you can create that same unshakable foundation in your life.


I think this is particularly important given what is happening in the world right now.  Not just the economy, but the bigger picture of the major shift in consciousness that will transform the world as it unfolds.

I want to help you be on the forefront of this shift by being aligned within yourself and with your business.

So join me Tuesday as I reveal my step-by-step system. We’ll talk about how you can create your personalized blueprint for life; allowing you to reconnect with your soul, reclaim your life and become the person you were created to be, all while your business works for you rather than you working for it.


We will do a series of calls on this topic. Tuesday is the first step. All the calls are free. I’m serious when I tell you that you don’t want to miss this.

When you register for the call you’ll get a link to tell me what your biggest challenge is and I will be answering as many of those as I can on the call.

The live call will be Tuesday the 16th at 5PM Pacific and if you can’t be on live, you can listen to the replay.

So register for the call here:


When you go to the site you’ll see I’m doing a live event on this topic on Feb. 20-22nd in San Diego.

If this is an area of your life you could use some assistance in, I encourage you to take a look at the event now.  It will be a small group and the 3 payment option ends soon.

These teleseminars are jam-packed with real content, not a pitch for the event. I will give you strategies you can use right away on your own as I answer your questions submitted online.

What’s New

Do you know where you’re going?

What’s New

This week’s article asking if it’s time for you to get what you want may have turned into a little bit of a rant.  But I’m not going to apologize because this particular topic is the main focus of my business, so it’s something I’m very passionate about.

Speaking of that, look for an email later today announcing a teleseminar I’ll be doing next Tuesday that also deals with this topic, or if you can’t wait,
you can go and save your spot on the call at:


I have an article on Masterminding that is appearing in the December issue of Small Business CEO Magazine. You can subscribe and be notified of each issue.


I spent the last week in Scottsdale and it was colder than I expected. I stayed for the weekend to go and catch up with some friends at Armand Morin’s event. It was a great event with Armand giving the best tutorial on Ad Words that I’d ever seen and several new ideas for my business!

Armand has a real gift for making things simple enough that I can understand them. And I heard Michael Lee Austin may have a new CD on the horizon.

Remember to join the conversation on my blog where you’ll also find each week’s ezine posted for your comments.

Is It Time For You To Get What You Want?

As I travel around to different events and speak to clients and colleagues alike, there are some core questions that keep coming up.

And it boils down to two things.

For those who are already at the top of their profession or well on their way, there seems to be a lot of unrest around how their success looks. They’re feeling an emptiness and a sense of being unfulfilled by the success they thought would be the key to their happiness.

One woman I talked to about this said she doesn’t want to talk openly about these feelings because it will make her look ungrateful for all the financial success she’s achieved.  And yet, that alone isn’t enough to make her happy.

She bought a bigger house, new car, she’s taken more trips and thrown more parties.  And still at the end of the day, she wonders if there shouldn’t be something more? She also wonders if she’s done something wrong that she missed the key to her happiness.

For those on the other side of the fence, on their way to building a business, there’s a huge sense of overwhelm and too many disconnected tasks with no idea where all of them are really going or how it all fits together to become a successful business and a happy life.

I talked to someone this weekend that’s in this place. She’s totally overwhelmed and has so many home study programs there just aren’t enough hours in the week to go through all of them. She’s beginning to wonder if what she’s looking for is in one of those programs and she just hasn’t gotten to that piece yet or if she has to go through all of them and figure out how they work together.

I’ve certainly been there! Have you?

That place of overwhelm is probably something you’ve felt at different stages of your business.  It may even be a place you frequently find yourself in when it comes to your personal life as well.

The worst part is, these are the same issues I’ve been hearing since the day I started in this business!

Then another friend of mine mentioned something that Stephen Covey says about making sure when you climb the ladder of success that the ladder is up against the right wall!

Well, that’s a whole different story.  But it reminds me of why I created my very first teleseminar series way back when.  I did a 6 week course called, “How to Create a Vision for Your Life”. It came after a conversation I had with a really successful speaker who asked me how he would know for sure if what he was doing was really his life purpose-his passion.

I was totally taken aback.  He looked like he had everything going for him in the way of outward success, and yet he was confused and unsure of his path.  He didn’t really have any excitement around what he was doing anymore, he was just making money.  And he was bored.

I couldn’t get that conversation out of my head, and I thought about all the people who were overwhelmed and the others that have the feeling of emptiness after getting to the top. And I  realized they were all dealing with the same issues.  They were just showing up as different symptoms based on where they were in their lives.

So, if you find yourself in any of these situations, it’s not your fault. You may think you are doing everything right, but if you don’t have the correct system to follow, you will never end up where you want to go. At best you’ll climb all the way to the top of your ladder and find out you put it up against the wrong building to start with!

Every day I see people buying one more tactic, the next magic bullet. They don’t work if you don’t have a clear end to end system that you are applying them in. You can spend all your time learning new pieces, but if don’t have a vision of the whole puzzle, you don’t know where they go.

And you can do all the law of attraction stuff until the cows come home but if you don’t have clarity around it, it won’t manifest.

Clarity is the key. Knowing who you are and what you want your life to look puts you in a position where you can create a business thats sole purpose is to facilitate your lifestyle and contribute to your happiness. And I’m talking about soul fulfillment-not just having a fun day.

Your business is a tool to be used to bring you peace and fulfillment.  It shouldn’t be anchor around your neck that dictates how you spend your time.

Is it time for you to start looking at your business from a different perspective? For 99% of the people reading this, I would say yes. You see if it’s true for you.

I feel for you because I know it’s not easy without the right person showing you the way. I wandered around for a long time myself, looking for the right kind of help.

When it comes to discovering your passion, there are books and courses and workshops you can go to. From there you may be able to figure out what your life purpose is.  But as you start to get to the part about turning that into a business, there are few people who can do it well without a coach or mentor.

And when it comes to really creating a blueprint for the life of your dreams that is a step-by-step plan of how you can make it a reality, you need help.  I know this because if it’s what you really want and you don’t live like that now, it’s because you don’t know how to get there.

And that is what I do so easily, I see it so clearly when I talk to people. All it takes is for you to believe that it’s possible for someone who knows how to do it to help you. That little opening for something new to show up and asking for help can totally transform your life.

Let’s have a conversation-by blog (you can post anonymously). I can’t answer all your individual emails, but I’m here to help, so let me know what you want to talk about in your blog comments.

We can keep this conversation going over the next week as I get ready to spend the holidays on Maui. I’m living the life of my dreams and I want to help you do the same.

Until next week, I’d love to hear your thoughts.  Just comment on this post on my blog.

If you would like personal mentoring, send me an email detailing what you would like help with.  As your mentor I hold a bigger vision for you than
you hold for yourself.  When you have faith and a team that believes in you, it gives you courage.  When you don’t have to do it all yourself, all things
are possible for you.  Commit today to go for your dream 100%.

Great Sales and Communication Program on Sale

Boy was I surprised by the emails I came back to after the holiday weekend.

Looks like more than a few people were upset that I would run a sale that only lasted for a few days right before a holiday.  Really they were upset that it was over before they read their email. (a recap is below)


I have to admit I didn’t really think about how many people leave their email behind when traveling, but that’s the way it should be. Holidays are all about family, not work!

So I’m going to run the whole thing again until Friday, the 5th.

I’m grateful you’re one of my subscribers and I don’t want you to miss out.


Here’s the short version. Go to the site for more details:

I’m having a 50% off sale on Getting to Yes Without Selling with some incredible new bonus content I’m creating just for you!

It expires Friday, so if you haven’t gotten in on this yet, go take a look now.


The program sells everyday for $997.00…but you get the entire program for just $497!

Bottom line, for under $500 you get:

* a private 1/2 hour consultation with me to work on your business (I know it says first 50 on the website, but I want to work with everyone that signs up today)

* 3 completely new teleseminars jam packed with content just for you on conscious selling for enlightened entrepreneurs

* A complete sales and communication system that will help you to streamline your sales process and create more effective sales and marketing materials in a matter of a few hours.


Go beyond consultative selling and move into conscious sales.
