My personal highlight at the PartnerCON 2016 last week? David T. Fagan: 2 hours on Wednesday morning Non-Stop high valuable content! He started his thoughts with the remark; if you think you learn something which changes your thinking just say “Breakthrough.” All of us received his book “Cracking the ICON CODE” and 5 of us a further book gift for the biggest breakthroughs…The title of the Session: From Invisible to Invincible: How to Be Seen, Be heard & Get Paid” Packed with practical advise. The Description says it all: “”Bottom line: You´re in the wisdom business. People are paying you for your advice. You are the product you are selling most and you have to answer the question prospects are really asking the most…”Why You?” That one question can show up in all these ways “Why you and not something else? Why you versus doing nothing at all or just do the same thing as always?” I´m going to show you how to crush that question and convert more leads into sales through influence, credibility and exposure.” Allison H. Larsen invited me to the speech and also introduced me to David afterwards. No wonder 95 % of his business are referrals… Margarete and I were fortunate enough to meet David´s business partner Melissa Gallemore. It´s the first time I told my “life story” in the USA since I moved to the USA in December 2013. Margarete did it, too. It felt a kind of funny but also relaxant, something looking back with a little smile and the girls promised us to visit us in New Orleans soon…we look forward to welcome you´ll in our lovely city!!! David will be my topic in my speech at our newly founded Advanced Toastmasters Club tomorrow.
“Truth and Freedom: Today I allow the truth to set me free. I didn´t expect enlightenment to hurt like this. I thought that if I became spiritual and free, the pain would not be there. I didn´t realize that an important step on my road to freedom was in releasing my beliefs that I own other people, that the world owes me some thing, that I can control my destiny. I know today what I cannot let go of has a permanent hold on me. Life is a journey and a spiritual unfolding is its purpose. I see that my ideas of how things had to be were an illusion and that the time and effort I expended trying to get my life to conform to my illusions kept me from my deeper truth…” After some travelling with a flu in bed I reread some value stuff. This is one of them: Taken from “Daily Affirmation for Forgiving and Moving On” from Tian Dayton. ( Powerful Inspiration for Personal Change)
Gary Vee had an interesting guest in Episode 207: Max Tucker. He was invited to introduce his new (ad)venture called Book In A Box .How to write a book without writing but speaking. I am sure it will have a great success because there are so many people out there who could easily talking a book but not writing. The beauty of his marketing: He offers you his whole blueprint for free How? As a book, of course…for those who are not willing or able to invest in themselves or just want to review the creating process. I love it.
My little Christmas present to you all is Debbie Pickus little statement. She built curiosity in her answer about what she have learnt at the 10 K event and spoke about her book publishing plans. I loved that she was quite spontaneous and open in doing this snippet. It was a great fun. You can find more about her company Team Fireball here.
The Keyword APPS got search results of around 45 Mio hits today according to the Google Keyword Tool. So what´s APPS worth these days? That´s around the half of BUSINESS clicks. Last week I heard about Marc Ostrofsky. He became famous for his unbelievable Domain deals. A Domain like Business.com which was originally bought for 7 bucks he bought for 120.000 $ but was fortunate enough to cash in 7.5 Million $. And this Internet property is worth a three figures Million $ amount in these days. This business is called dealing with “Generic Domains.” Simply said the word you and me would type in the search engine to find what we are looking for. If you are interested in this kind of business check out Marc Ostrofsky´s book called: Get Rich Click. Great interview with him on DomainSherpa. That was 06.2012 when I wrote this blog post and never published it…
Today we definitely measure differently. The whole social media component is missing in this post above… but it is still true what Marc said: “Domain names and websites are internet Real Estate.” The Web Domain Name Sales Industry is a 3 billion $ industry announced by IBISWORLD in 2013. Even today sales are enormous: Top 250 and Wikipedia says it all. In fact all these Domains are .COM Domains….Anybody who builds a BRAND should still make sure to own the name.
