Warren Buffett agrees with me

Just in case you thought my previous post on investing in turbulent times was a little off the beaten path, it was, but then again Warren Buffet and I don’t mind to be buying when everyone else is selling.

Buy low, sell high.

Easier said than done.

Have you noticed how many people are helping me with these blog posts?!?! Sure makes my job a lot easier!

Bad news a boon for investors: Warren Buffett

P.S.

What this means for your BUSINESS is to keep thinking and acting ANTIMIMETICISOMORPHICALLY.

Don’t do what everyone else is doing – otherwise you will suffer the same fate.

Yeah, I know… Easier said than done – not for our Platinum Members who are being taught what to do to RECESSION PROOF THEIR BUSINESSES and what to do WHILE IN A RECESSION.

In fact, I extracted the 48-minute session from the recent 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp and have made it available on-line at a never-before offered price of $17. That’s right $17 so you have no excuse.

Click here to find out HOW TO RECESSION PROOF YOUR BUSINESSES and WHAT TO DO WHILE IN A RECESSION.

Watching the video costs $17 – not watching it could cost you a lot more.

The price will go up without advance. Buy it now, watch it when it’s convenient for you.

Failure to Thrive = DEATH

Today’s post is a somber one, one that highlights why some babies die or fail to grow healthy. It’s called the Failure to Thrive syndrome.

Well documented in the medical community, it’s something that few business owners would consider relevant to them.

I beg to differ.

The Failure to Thrive in babies is not all that different from business owners who fail to grow their businesses, their wealth and consciousness. The SOURCE of the problem for business people is the lack of motivation, enthusiasm and support available within the small business sector.

After prolonged exposure to a cold and heartless environment, (too) many business owners just give up and capitulate to the forces of the “failure to thrive syndrome”.

I’ve seen it all too often – especially when I was presenting at ‘FREE public seminars’. The person would be sitting there – OFTEN ONLY because the event was free. They would never consider PAYING for ADVICE because they unknowingly have given up hope let alone the expectation of success.

They are sitting there – like the premature baby, in dire need of HUMAN CONTACT, AFFECTION and LOVE. But they sit there, un-engaged, distant and unresponsive.

They need the attention the most yet THEY GET THE LEAST ATTENTION – OFTEN NO ATTENTION AT ALL.

The other participants engage, participate and contribute to the session – making the situation even worse for the ignored, despondent participant(s).

He or she sees all opportunities as someone else trying to take their money away from them – not realising that most presenters WANT TO GIVE WAY MORE THAN THE COST OF THE PROGRAM / PRODUCT they are selling…

It’s really, really sad to see.

I bring this up because in the medical profession this syndrome has been documented and has been addressed for the most fragile premature babies… very successfully.

Not so in the business community.

The next time you are at an event and see someone withdraw – go to him or her and offer positive advice, support and enthusiasm for them attending – don’t be pushy, just let them know you’re there with them for that hour or two for the SAME reason they’re there – to improve themselves.

That initial touch is often all that person needs to feel connected again.

Do that with one person every time you’re at an event and let see if that helps more entrepreneurs to THRIVE!

Onward and upward!

P.S.

This is so important with what is going on in the Financial and Stock Markets these days. The analysts and experts all agree this situation is totally unprecedented.

We are in uncharted territory.

Anyone with a negative predisposition is going to hit the wall with full force.

Anyone who can’t pick themselves up in the morning and be self-motivated risks getting sucked into the Vortex Of Mediocrity™ that is more powerful than gravity.

I don’t mean to join the chorus of fear mongers out there, but I can see it in peoples’ faces, hear it in their tone of voice and feel it via their movements and posture.

Times are bad and everyone feels it’s going to get worse – A LOT WORSE.

With that in mind, we, as Exponential Mindset™ enthusiasts MUST stick together to make sure we don’t lose any of our colleagues.

In every CRISIS there is OPPORTUNITY…

That is the THINKING that will get us through this.

An economic downturn is an IDEAL opportunity to grow your business – exponentially

We have all heard the news lately—

The bear market is upon us… the bulls have gone home…

Interest rates are going up in the US and ‘might’ come down in Australia…

Housing starts in the US and Australia are way down…

The sub-prime crisis in the US is not even close to being over…

The price of oil is down from its high, but that’s a false win since it’s still above $115…

The Australian Dollar’s run has stopped and retreated…

The labour market is still strong – for now. The number of people SWITCHING jobs is down and new job openings are decreasing…

So how can it be an IDEAL opportunity to grow your business exponentially?!?!?

That is what over 100 keen Australian Entrepreneurs and Internet Marketers are going to learn at this year’s third annual Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp.

SOLD OUT – this year’s event will cover new content that includes HOW TO RECESSION PROOF YOUR BUSINESS – an entire new segment to arm participants to make the most of this IDEAL opportunity when most businesses will be:

* Strapped for cash
* Under-resourced
* Fighting price cutting like never before
* Negative buyer sentiment – people ‘waiting’ to buy
* Aggressive competitor tactics

For many, this will be the first time they see the Exponential Mindset™ at work – LIVE, IN PERSON and FOCUSED on REAL LIFE ISSUES.

It’s going to be an exciting 3 days – a full 36 hours.

One of the strategies that will be demonstrated is MindMapping.

They will be shown how Gideon King founder of NovaMind created these exponential results…

Within a couple of months of attending the Bootcamp, I implemented a simple strategy to ask for referrals from NovaMind customers, which increased revenues by over 50%, and had a significant flow on effect as those new customers in turn referred others.

Later on, I used the strategy of preeminence to become a recognized Mind Mapping expert worldwide, which in turn has supported growth of the business, and the development of NovaMind.

I have also used a combination of strategies, almost all of which were taught at the Bootcamp, to take a 6 year old well established company and grow the income by 81% in 60 days, while reducing expenses by approximately 20%.

When you apply them, these strategies really work!

If you want to access this exponential tool, go to the NovaMind site and download the FREE trial version – it’s an Aussie product and nothing short of incredible!

When you decide to buy it – please make sure you use my affiliate link -> CLICK HERE. And I’ll make sure you get an EXTRA EXPONENTIAL BONUS!

MindMapping is an awesome skill to have. At the Bootcamp, we’re going to cover Group MindMapping strategies that I invented about 10 years ago – it’s MindMapping taken to the next level.

Talking about taking things to the next level – whenever you come across something of value, you have a ‘duty’ to share it with people. The more you share, the more you will get back in return – either directly or INdirectly.

For example, I came across this website that’s really cool to teach you to touch type faster and more accurately…

http://www.keybr.com

There is NOTHING TO SELL YOU – just an idea that might improve your typing speed by 20, 30 or 50%.

You’re welcome.

Of course when you come across another site of similar value, please reciprocate and let me know!

This is called creating value within your business model.

With the Internet and blogs, it’s increasingly easier to do, yet very few people do it.

THAT is why as the RECESSION takes hold, YOU WILL HAVE AN ADVANTAGE – if you do it.

Most business people will be so focused on SURVIVING that they won’t be value-adding = an IDEAL OPPORTUNITY for you to LOVE your clients and prospects to death!

To the death of your competitors!

If that excites you and you haven’t yet bought it – you simply must make the $27 investment to purchase my book “Get the Best Business Results With the LEAST Amount of Effort”.

Most Bootcamp attendees who have invested THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS have invested the $27 to make sure they learn the Exponential Learning Strategies BEFORE they step into the Bootcamp.

These strategies are so powerful that they defy ‘logic’ – they will astound you with their elegance, simplicity and EASE.

There are ‘secret’ bonuses included with the book – - -

Back to value creation strategies -

The most exponential thing you can do is create a MasterMind Group – you know I am going to tell you that Bootcamp attendees are going to do this over 3 days…

… so I won’t tell you…

But what you might not know is that we’ve created a SPECIAL BONUS for Bootcamp attendees that you can benefit from even if you don’t attend the Bootcamp!

It’s a never-before-seen offer that will blow your socks off.

I know that after you’ve read the book and listened to the audio recording you’ll wish you were at the Bootcamp with OVER 100 super-excited entrepreneurs…

But this wasn’t your time – there will be other opportunities in a few months – other events to attend to get into … “the Exponential Mindset™”.

Onward and upward!
