    If you’re like most online entrepreneurs over the past few years, you’ve probably built your marketing funnel and webpages yourself using platforms like ClickFunnels or LeadPages. And while those platforms are absolutely fantastic, there’s two problems with them… It’s nearly impossible to make your final page look perfectly polished, and just the way you want them using those templates. And the second problem, is that you need to know how to export the code from those pages and host them as an HTML page onto your server. Why? Because if don’t, the pages are going to load much slower, and you’re not building your domain’s authority, reputation, or traffic by sending everyone to a page that’s hosted on the ClickFunnels domain. With that being said, I’ll bet there’s a very good chance you don’t know how to do that, because I don’t either. So what’s the solution? Well most people jump online and hire a web designer to make their webpages for them. But that’s when you run into the next big problem, because 99% of

    I have to say that I truly love what I do. I love learning, I love creating, and I love sharing the knowledge and lessons I’ve learned in life so others can benefit from my experience. During the past 15 years, I’ve been able to help change the lives of over 1 million people, and it’s created a ripple that’s gone on to impact the lives of tens-of-millions of people thanks to my student’s work, and the impact they’re now having on the world. And personally, building an education business has allowed me to live a life of freedom and opportunity I could only dream of 20 years ago. But I never set out to build this kind of business. Back in 2005, I simply started sharing what I knew with others, and it just took on a life of its own. One day I was waiting tables, and three months later I was making over $50,000 per month selling a 50-page booklet that I wrote as a training manual for my team members. When you really think about it, this is an incredibly special kind of business because it’s the only one in the wo

    Hey guys, I’m going to keep this intro short and sweet today because time is of the essence. A few weeks ago one of the smartest entrepreneurs I’ve ever met, gave me a ring to invite me out to a special meeting in Florida at Mark Ford’s house to talk about an initiative he’s put in place to try and save internet entrepreneurs. And I’m not the only one he invited… Ryan Deiss, Russell Brunson, Curt Mally, Todd Brown, Neil Patel, Dean Graziosi, John Lee Dumas, Mike Filsaime, Jeff Walker, and dozens of other leaders were invited to fly down to Florida today, right now to discuss the massive problems that are starting to arise for small business owners online, and what we can do about it. At the heart of the matter, is censorship. Facebook and Google own and control 90%+ of our communication lines these days. Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, YouTube, WhatsApp, Google Search, Gmail...

    Making a living and supporting a family can be difficult and stressful even in the best of times and circumstances. Building a business can be infinitely more difficult because it’s all up to you, and there are no safety nets. And then the excuses start to come out… It’s too expensive to start a business… It doesn’t work… I don’t have the right personality… I’m not good at selling… And the list goes on and on. But at the end of the day, most people actually have it really easy because all of the stories and challenges are simply based on stories they’ve made up in their own minds. They’re wearing invisible handcuffs. Well I’ll tell you what’s tough and what’s difficult… Tough is spending five years in prison, and then walking out the gates with nothing. Tough is knowing that you have a felony record, and that no one is going to hire you.

    When it comes to starting a business from scratch that’s simple, inexpensive, and that can allow you to live life on your terms, there’s nothing more powerful than You, Inc.

    Today I have the absolute pleasure of introducing you to someone incredibly dear to me… My friend Kamal Ravikant. Kamal and I met at an event in Austin about two years ago and he has become a friend, a colleague, and a mentor, not because of what he has accomplished as an entrepreneur, (which is substantial), but because of what he has overcome, and how he chose to face those challenges. Every business owner will go through their long dark night of the soul… An event or period in their life when everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. A time that breaks your spirit, and that even can destroy you identity. During that period, everything you hold dear will be stripped away from you. Your business, your money, your security, your confidence, and your self-worth. In fact the only thing you’ll have left,is the reflection staring back at you in the mirror. It’s not the event or what went wrong that will define you, but what you choose to do in the moment, staring at yourself in the mirror, will. This is exactl

Tom was the co-founder alongside Mark Ford, of the wildly successful investing and financial education company, the Palm Beach Research Group.

Some of you will end up keeping millions of dollars in the coming years as a result of this episode. You see, at one point or another, you’re going to find out that making money, and keeping money are two completely different things.

So how do you avoid that trap?

    If there is one thing that I’ve learned over the past year from dealing with my health crisis, it’s that your thoughts literally create and control your destiny. You can use your thoughts to heal your body, to calm your mind, and to rapidly change your life for the better… I think Napoleon Hill nailed it when he titled his book, “Think and Grow Rich”... But if it was just that easy, why isn’t everyone walking around fit, happy, healthy, and rich? Why are the vast majority of people dealing with disease and stress, instead of living in their highest state of being? Well one of the reasons is that our brains process and create new mental circuits about a fearful or negative event, 10,000 times faster, than they do for a positive event. Our brains are wired to look for danger, and remember it. They are not naturally wired to focus on abundance, safety, and happiness. Once you’re aware of this, you’ll start to realize that retraining your brain takes a conscious effort. But once you learn how to control and direc

Getting 600 people to pull out their phone and record a video review of your product or service doesn’t happen on it’s own. There had to be an intentional process taking place behind the scenes, so I reached out to his business partner Blake and asked him what they were doing. Well it turns out they were using a new software tool called GetVideoPeel is a simple online software service that makes it extremely easy for people to send you video testimonials and reviews. There’s no file editing, or need to upload to any kind of file-sharing or video hosting platform. One click to record, one click to submit, and that’s it.

    We’ve all heard the saying that goes, “people will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel…” As we enter the season of giving and gratitude here in the US, sending gifts to our family members, friends, and customers is a tradition. Giving a gift to someone can be an incredibly powerful act, for better or for worse. As you’ll discover through the amazing stories you’ll hear today, when done thoughtfully and with care, sending a gift to someone can open the door to new relationships and opportunities in a way that nothing else can. It can create a bond and a connection with someone that can last a lifetime, and that will never be forgotten. But when done incorrectly, it can have the complete opposite effect that you desire… It can actually cause the recipient to feel like another sheep in the herd, misunderstood, unappreciated, or even disrespected. And unfortunately, most businesses shoot themselves in the foot every holiday season with impersonal,
