How the heck he converted a simple ebook into 8 figure business

He is responsible for converting an e-book into 8 figure business, where he is creating leaders and empowering entrepreneur to realize and fulfill their highest potential. He is responsible for creating 1000s of success stories in the last 6 years. His name is Mike Dillard.

Now who the heck is Mike Dillard?

Mike Dillard is one of the rags to riches story. He has pioneered the concept of Attraction Marketing. He went from waiting tables to millionaire in less than 18 months.

His story goes like this…

He was extremely shy, had very little self-confidence and was dead broke.

He has been so low financially that he didn’t have furniture for three years after graduating college, and even had to pawn his championship-winning bike along with his training DVD collection.

After struggling for over 6 years, going into debt, and even pawning his possessions just to eat, he finally cracked the code when he discovered the art and science of Magnetic Sponsoring.

While developing this book, he went into the psychology of individual and categorized them into pre-alphas, alphas and betas.

He teaches how you get people to contact and pursue you because the answer lies in basic human psychology, so that’s where we need to start.

In old times, the leader (usually referred to as the Alpha), was typically the strongest and most dominate individual in the group or family, both physically and mentally. One of his primary responsibilities was to protect his group, and in return for that protection, they would follow him.This book capitalizes on this concept only.

You will learn two lessons here about the leadership.

1: People have a subconscious attraction to others who convey leadership qualities and have a high level of personal value.

2: If you want to make it big in networking, (or anything in life), you must learn to convey those qualities, and eventually become a leader with value to offer others.

The fastest way to get rich in life is to solve other people’s problems.

People don’t want a drill; they want to know how to make a hole.Teach people how to make a hole and you will become rich.

So he started company “Magnetic Sponsoring” with his mentor and now a partner Tim Erway.

It was his experience and expertise that was responsible for taking Magnetic Sponsoring from a single course to the multi-million dollar publishing empire. He is a visionary, strategist and one of the best direct response marketers.

So here is step by step blueprint of how he built his 8 figure empire in these simple steps

  1. Define target prospect/customer matrix.
  2. Identify the problems and challenges they are facing.
  3. Determine how you can create anything of value to them which is unique or better.
  4. Create an offer that address their needs and show why your solution is unique or better
  5. Drive traffic to test the offer and build your list.
  6. Lead with a funded proposal or self liquidating offer and generate leads.
  7. Convert some of those leads to your actual offer.
  8. Create more and more value.
  9. Repeat steps 6, 7 and 8.

Using these tactics Mike converted his e-book into 8 figure business over last six years. Today, Mike is considered the industry’s top authority on attraction marketing, internet marketing, and personal branding thanks to the ground-breaking strategies found in Magnetic Sponsoring.

Being an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur”. It’s a very fancy and bombastic word. People may sometime feel false sense of accomplishment when someone says them so.

But do most people know what it takes to be an Entrepreneur?  Most people everyday dally in the thought why they can’t become an one, but they never aspire to become an one.

Today I am throwing some light on some of the aspects of it. Although I am not at all an expert or guru but I am putting my perspective in front of you.

Mount Everest Captured

I will start with an example. How many people have heard of Mount Everest? You got to be kidding me if you haven’t. It’s world’s highest mountain with a peak at 8,848 meters (29,029 ft) above sea level. Do you know how many people died while climbing Mount Everest? Probably nobody reading this article may have an idea about it. To be precise, around 224 people died since the first expedition started in 1922. The bodies on the sides of the climbing trails are used for landmarks.

Do you know what it reminds me of? It reminds me of a business. 80% of businesses which start, fail in its 1st year and remaining 80% fail in next year i.e. 2nd year. The road to the top is literally filled with the shattered dreams.

When you climb it you’ll acknowledge some poor souls shivering or dying on the side of the trail but you don’t have time as you want to stay alive yourself to be able to help.

As you progress to the top, you may just need a brief nap and you know that the minute you drop-off your shoulders is the minute you die.

The point I am trying to make here is that are you playing to win or are you playing not to lose.

Most people do the things because they have to. Most people are playing not to lose.

Can you think of Olympic performer or successful business person who was playing it safe and just trying to do what mediocre mind will do, instead of REALLY GOING FOR IT?

They are doing the things because they are passionate about it not because they have to do it.

Persistence. It’s not something you learn, but rather develop through a burning desire.

Persistence is naturally developed and is fueled by this desire. Most people give up to soon. Persistence is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. But ours problem is that we can’t deal with failure. The school system and our society are designed in such a way that they don’t teach you how to handle your failure.

Remember, there are no failures only feedbacks.

Persistence wins not sometimes, but EVERY TIME.

How far you can go in life depends upon how many “NOs” you can handle.

How Many "NOs" can you handle?

You have to traverse a road with bumps, sharp turns, and lots of detours along the way without losing hope.

Bumpy Road ahead.......

See, it takes lots of guts and sweat equity to build house with bricks instead of sticks. You will encounter lots whiners, tire-kickers, leg- pullers in your journey and they meet you especially when you are down.

So never ever look for approval seekers, because all the successful people never waited for approval by their friends and families. If you start looking for approval by everybody, probably you will never get it.

So don’t look for support from others.

There is an amazing book by Rashmi Bansal (alumni of IIM Ahmedabad). It tells story of 20 entrepreneurs who did it without much coveted MBA degrees. It doesn’t take any college degree to become successful entrepreneur.You’ve already got everything you need.

JUST GO AND DO IT!

Parable of Pipeline:Ultimate way to accumulate wealth

Before starting this topic I would like to give credit to the Original Author Burke Hedges who wrote the book called ” Parable of Pipeline”. This video explains exact story of Pablo and Bruno which changed their life.

Let me explain this story in short.
Suppose that all the wells that supplied a village dried up. So the Mayor of that village called together a town meeting to discuss how to get water from a fresh water source that was 2 miles away and put it back into the well that supplied the village. For every gallon of water that was put into the well, that person made a dollar. Now here’s the catch. It doesn’t matter how the water gets there, just as long as it does.

Since everyone knows they will get paid a certain amount of money for every gallon of water they supply to the well, they start carrying buckets. They trade their Time for dollars doing manual labor.


The illustration below is an example of what the people pipeline builders do.They are researching and learning they start to build pipelines that connect from the fresh water source to the village well. By the way, this doesn’t happen overnight. Let me ask you a question. When your pipeline is only half way finished, how much water is flowing to the village? None right; so how much money are you making? None. Often times while pipeline builders is building their pipeline they are getting laughed at because they aren’t making any money. They are still building their pipeline but once that pipeline is connecting the well to the fresh water supply, the pipeline builders now has a system that does the work for them (the pipeline is the system). Now all they have to do is maintain the pipes here and there and every time someone turns on their faucet to get water, That person is generating Passive Income. Now they have time to do what they want and even the know-how that if they choose, can build more pipelines. So what does this mean?

It’s not about the money

It's not about the money

“People  want to make money. However, it is not money they are really after. It is the things that money can buy and the freedom of time to do what they really want. While someone may think this is an insignificant difference,it is actually the reason so many people never become wealthy.” Bob Proctor

” Expenses rise to meet income” Parkinson’s Law of Money

This video will explain you how?

What does this law signify?
The mind lures us into this behavior pattern by telling us that the more we want, the more we’ll get, and the more we get, the happier we’ll be. The truth is that the more we want now, the more we’ll want in the future. Human beings are creatures of habit. The more we behave in a certain way today, the more we’ll behave that way in the future. So if we water the seeds of desire now, we won’t magically just wake up at some point and say, “ I suddenly have fewer desires.” In reality, the amount we water the seeds of desire today will dictate how much larger and thirstier the plants of desire will be tomorrow.

So what’s the freedom of time and how to create it? For that purpose I will simplify the things a little bit. There is a concept called “E S B I” explained in the figure followed with explanation by the Author himself i.e. Robert Kiyosaki

Where you want to be in one of those four quadrants?

This concept is explained by Robert Kiyosaki in one of his books <a href=” where he elaborates this concept

So is creating time freedom or  creating wealth is easy?
There will be many obstacles on your journey to wealth, the only real obstacle is what you believe, think, and feel about money. Most of us were brought up with the concept “Seeing is Believing” which is a skeptical and negative view of life. We hear it our whole lives until it becomes a daily routine of our thought process without our even realizing it. People with wealthy mindset understand that this concept is exactly backward – you must believe in what you can achieve before you will see it happening in your real life.They know that “Believing is Seeing.” The only thing that separates a billionaire from you is a wealthy mindset and the cornerstone of that mindset is belief.

The wealthy people understand that wealth is an ongoing process. It is not a destination you arrive at one day and then stop. It is not at all accomplished overnight – although it can occur in a short period of time.

“If you gain wealth before you have gained a wealthy mindset then you are in danger of losing that wealth forever.”Bob Proctor

We have all heard of those that win the lottery or jackpots only to be  penniless a few years later. Since they were never taught to think wealthy, they have very meager chance of achieving wealth that lasts long and eventually they lose what money they have.

Kessel  Brent in his book ” It’s not about the money” writes that

Kessel Brent

“The predominant message in our culture is that it’s all about the money—that more money or a different set of financial circumstances will bring us the freedom to stop worrying and just enjoy life. But many people remain stuck in the same financial predicament, even though they’ve tried everything they know to get ahead. No matter what your balance sheet looks like, you probably already suspect that there has to be a way to make the lasting, profound changes in your financial life that you crave, or you wouldn’t have picked up this book.
One reason most people aren’t happy with their financial lives is that the ways we have traditionally been taught to deal with money simply don’t work. We are told to spend less, to save more, to think positive thoughts that will create the abundance we want, or to find the perfect career. We set goals, create budgets, put all the right insurance in place, write updated wills and estate plans, and invest in a certain way. Though important, these actions aren’t enough. The reason? They approach money from the outside in, rather than from the inside out.

Whether we hoard, splurge, or give it all away, we perpetually repeat ineffective behavior patterns with money because we are accustomed to specific states of being where money is concerned. We are used to a particular level of anxiety or calm, craving or avoidance,scarcity or abundance. And no matter what changes occur in our outer circumstances, the unconscious mind, if it remains unexamined, untrained,and unconnected to our spirit, will recreate those old, familiar circumstances in our financial life.



So what’s the lesson of this? Creating wealth by building an asset is the only way to achieve time and money freedom both because it’s not about the money.

Happy Independence Day

Rajat Gupta : Innocent Scapegoat

" The Scapegoat Exemplified"

There is a proverb in English Language “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. You have freedom to replace “power” word with “money”.

Rajat Gupta was prominent figure not only in India but also in International Market. Before Indra Nooyi became CEO of PepsiCo or Vikram Pandit took control of Citigroup there was Rajat Gupta, the original “global Indian” who was the first to head a major Western business i.e. one of the top 4 management consultancy firms like “ McKinsey”
He was born in Kolkata to a Montessori school teacher mother and a journalist father. He lost his parents at the age of 18. His education took him from IIT, Delhi, then ITC to Harvard Business School in Boston. He graduated at the top 5% of his Harvard class and landed the much sought after consulting job at McKinsey & Company. Gupta served as corporate chairman, board director or strategic advisor to a variety of large and notable organizations corporations including Goldman Sachs, Procter and Gamble and American Airlines, and non-profits including The Gates Foundation, The Global Fund and the International Chamber of Commerce. Rajat Gupta is the co-founder of four different organizations: the Indian School of Business (ISB) which is one of the best B-Schools not only in India but in the world also.

He is kind of epitome for me, a person from a relatively humble background, out of sheer hard work and merit, could really rise to the top of the ladder.
People who know him say Gupta has personal warmth and a knack for connecting with people, taking an interest in their careers and families. Not a back-slapper or a joker, Gupta likes small groups and tends to steer conversation towards topics in which he takes a professional or philanthropic interest.

Last year, Rajat K Gupta delivered a commencement speech at the Hyderabad-based Indian School of Business that he helped start. ”Try to make other people successful,” said Gupta, one of the world’s most prominent Indian-born business executives. ”If you work on making other people successful, they will in turn make you successful beyond your dreams.”
And guess what, he lived up to his words. He tried to make other people successful, illegally.

So what went wrong exactly?

He was envious of the wealth that his peers were amassing. His envy could have affected the choices he made — orienting his post-McKinsey career around making money, handing over large chunks of his money to Mr. Rajaratnam and, at least according to prosecutors, going to great lengths to groom favor with Mr. Rajaratnam.

Stuck between scylla and charybdis

Such envy extends well beyond people accused of committing crimes. The inequality among the rich is a major force pushing many graduates of the country’s top colleges to Wall Street and drawing middle-aged professionals from other lines of work to finance.
So why there is debate on whether this is crime is committed out of pure greed or oversight and why the corporate india is defending Rajat Gupta?
Let’s analyze the situation “Rajat Gupta was a mistake at McKinsey. He goes out as a child and steals a lollipop from the nearby store but doesn’t suck on it so there is no criminal intent is established. It’s only his sheer stupidity and vacancy of intellect that allowed him to do this. This is bullshit.” ” Actually he was managing partner at McKinsey , so one think he didn’t lack was intellect. What he really lacked was credibility and he betrayed the trust of many people.Consultants are so important in the society, business leaders and investors rely upon them and when a person is entrusted with the fiduciary duty, when he is selling information for private profit in public or private standing is a heinous crime. No one is doubting his intellect but what people are doubting is his intent,when that doubt is cast over someone who is trusted.”

His lawyer is still defending him saying all the charges are baseless. Rajat Gupta was awaiting an arraignment on one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and five counts of securities fraud. The charges carry a potential penalty of 105 years in prison.

So it all boils down to greed for money which is root cause of all evil. Before ending this article, let me share one story with you which opened my mind to think about it.
The Edgewater Beach Hotel
In 1923, at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago, eight of the world’s wealthiest financiers met. These eight men controlled more money than the United States’ government at that time. They included:
The president of the largest independent steel company;
The president of the largest gas company;
The greatest wheat speculator;
The president of the New York Stock Exchange;
A member of the President’s cabinet;
The greatest “bear” on Wall Street;
The head of the world’s greatest monopoly;
The president of the Bank of International Settlement.
Certainly, one would have to admit, that a group of the world’s most successful men was gathered in that place; at least, men who had found the secret of “earning money.”
Now let’s see where these men were twenty-five years later:
The president of the largest independent steel company, Charles Schwab, lived on borrowed
money for five years before he died bankrupt.
The president of North America’s largest gas company, Howard Hopson, went insane.
The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cutton, died abroad, insolvent.
The president of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitny, was sent to Sing Sing Penitentiary.
A member of the President’s cabinet, Albert Fall, was pardoned from prison so he could die at home.
The greatest “bear” on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore, died a suicide.
The head of the greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, killed himself.
The president of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, also died a suicide.
Each of these men learned well the art of earning money, but it would seem that not one of them had ever learned how to live the “rich life”, which was their birthright.

It is stories like this one that have caused many well meaning, but ignorant people to say, “See, I told you it is not good to have a lot of money, it’s bad,” or, “It just goes to show you that rich people really aren’t happy;” but of course, that is just not true. For although these eight men would appear to have “slid off the track,” there are many wealthy people who are very happy, and who do a tremendous amount of good with their money; they live healthy, well-balanced lives.

Excerpts from famous book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill

Money or power is a tool which in itself is not good or bad but how you use it makes it good or bad.

Do What You Love and You’ll Never Work Again

Don't take advice from broke people

There are two exactly opposite mindsets about this concept. One says it’s the most stupid, counterproductive, outdated and cliched advice to give it to anyone and other says this is the only thing you should follow to get most out of your life.

So let me analyze both of those mindsets

Starting with negative mindset first:

It’s wonderful pursuit to strive for the things you enjoy the most. In fact you should actually die for it. It suggests that you have to make living in what you love to do but this is the trap the people fall into because something you love becomes work it changes the way in which you interact with it.

Don't fall for the trap

When you do what you love, sometimes you have to set your personal interests aside.

It’s grave to suggest that work can be anything other than work. Doing what you love can certainly make it a quite worthwhile experience but you’ll also experience a new side of that activity, and it won’t be comfortable always. You’ll have to face the ineluctable truth that there’s no fooling yourself. Work isn’t the same as play, no matter how similar they might appear on the surface.

Do I sound cynical? Perhaps a little. But too many people sit around convinced that if only they could turn their obsessive compulsion into a full-time job, they’d finally be happy. I encourage you to take a profound look at the things you love and what work means to you. There might be an intersection of the two, but don’t force it.

Now take a look at positive mindset

If you want to stop working today, find a way to make a living doing something you love.

Have you ever been on a trek where you hike up and down mountains all day and sleep on the moist ground? Many people may find your trek worse than spending Holiday in the office, but if you enjoy the outdoors, it is not work at all. It’s fun.

When you enjoy what you are doing, it is not work in the conventional sense of the word. Typically, work is defined as doing something you dislike, not always, at a time when you would rather be doing something else.

Find out what you enjoy in life, and figure out how to make a living out of it. It is a herculean task and a worthy one.

This is the video of Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech

In this video, Jobs narrates his story and his passion to do what he loved.

Let me share his parting note with you:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”

There is an inclination, as old as mankind, to search out alternative ways to the easy life. Instead of finding other ways to ease your life, do the work with dedication, passion. There is no shame in being a complete moron.

Two cows were standing in a meadow looking across the highway to a feedstock where huge vans drove, constantly throwing the fodder in front of the cattle.

“Wow, what a life,” said one cow. “I’d like to get myself into that easy life.”

“I don’t know,” said the other cow. “I’m kind of satisfied here. Don’t know what could happen there.”

“I’m climbing the fence and joining the herd,” the first cow said, and proceeded to trot to the greener pastures in the feedstock.

About the time she reached the feedstock a bull wagon pulled up to the pen and herded the cattle, her included, into the truck for shipment to the meat packing plant.

Grass is always greener on the other side

The moral of this story is probably straightforward. Why desert what you have for something that appears better or easier? And, if you want to become the jump ship, be sure to gather all the facts about your destination before you commit yourself.

How Superhit Movies Keep You Broke

You probably saw the movie Titanic. If you haven’t then I must say you’re one of the last people on earth who hasn’t. In fact, that movie is one of the highest grossing films ever released.

Why? Because it gratifies the fear-based, lack-centered, and limiting beliefs that most people have about money and success. Titanic programs you on many different levels that it is noble to be poor, rich people are immoral, and money is bad. And the more you liked that movie, the more stupid-conscious programming you have.I think it’s the most evil movie ever made.

“Come on,” you say. “It’s just a love story.” “We know it isn’t real.”

The first scene of the movie starts with happy-go-lucky Jack. Now why is he happy-go-lucky? Because he’s poor. He’s only on the cruise because he won the trip in a card game. So the first lesson we learn is that poor people are harum-scarum and untroubled. Just think about all the problems rich people have.

In scene two, we meet Rose. Now Rose is obviously not happy. Why? Because she has to marry the rich boring guy. If you remember, her mother warns her to suck it up and go through with the wedding for the sake of the family. So the second lesson we learn is that you have to sell your soul and happiness for money. As the movie unfolds, another critical scene shows Rose eating in the first class dining room. She is surrounded by all these dreary,stodgy, rich people who are sipping brandy, smoking cigars, and blithering inanely about polo matches and superficial nonsense.

Jack tells Rose, “Come on down to third class and I’ll show you how to party” Next, the movie goes back to the poor people, who of course are singing, dancing, and having fun,showing us how much better and more fun they are to be around than those ponderous, nasty rich people.

What’s the subconscious programming here? Rich people are no fun. Poor people are the only ones you want to hang out with. And if you want to be accepted and fit in with them,then you most certainly are better off being a poor person.

Then the ship hits the iceberg . . .

Rich people try to sneak into lifeboats or bribe their way on. Rose’s wealthy fiancé even snatches a baby from its mother’s arms in an effort to catch a ride. So can you imagine the subconscious reaction impressioned upon your mind as you watch some selfish rich guy steal a baby from its mother to save his own ass?

To the end of the movie, Rose is now about 80 years old. Rose has a necklace worth about $40 million,which she could give to her granddaughter and set her up for life. What does she do with it?She feeds it to the sharks!

Level, after level, after level, this movie subconsciously programs you that money is bad, rich people are evil, and it is good, even spiritual, to be poor. And nothing could be further from the truth.

 Just one movie? Well, let’s look at a few more blockbusters. Take Spiderman, for example. In the first Spiderman, who was the despicable villain? The billionaire rich guy. By the way, who was the villain in The Fantastic Four, Alien, and almost every Bond movie ever made? The rich guy. But back to our web-weaving meliorist.

Remember when poor Peter Parker finally met up with the girl next door whom he had secretly worshipped for years? They each go to throw the garbage out at the same time. Their eyes meet. She begins talking to Peter, and the sparks start flying. Then what happens? The rich kid pulls up in his brand new car, which his evil, rich daddy just bought him for his birthday. The girl shrills with delight,drops Peter along with the garbage, hops into the car, and they drive off, leaving Peter despised, dejected, and alone. On a subconscious level, how do you think that makes you feel about rich people?

There’s even a part in the movie when Peter’s uncle says the most famous stupidly overwhelming words ever spoken:

“We may not be rich, but at least we’re honest.”

Ever heard anything more moronic like that? What does that really mean? Let me tell you: “Be glad you are poor. That means you are honest, noble, —because rich people lie, cheat, and steal.”

That’s why something you may have heard from a parent or teacher when you were 10 could be impacting your core beliefs 20,30, even 40 years later. When you are young and easily influenced,things you hear from people in authority create an unerasable effect on you.

Now why was Peter’s uncle raising him? Because he was an orphan. What could grab your heart more than a poor little orphan? So Spiderman was an orphan. Come to think of it, so was Batman, Superman, Harry Potter.

Do you detect a pattern here?

You may be starting to wonder whether this is a conspiracy among writers to falsify. It isn’t. They are infected with the same stupid preconceived ideas and don’t even know they are replicating them. Like the original, Spiderman 2 was riddled with subliminal programming to reinforce negative mind sabotaging programs which, coincidentally,ensured it would be another smash hit worldwide.
