Is Amway A Scam?

Today’s big question: Is Amway a Scam?

Today’s big answer:…………..coming soon! READ ON….

So unless you have been living on the moon (Is that possible yet?) for the last century, you would have heard of Amway. You would have heard a lot of good stories about this company and probably also a lot of bad stories….

Firstly I want to let one of my biggest mentors talk to you about this fascinating company.

Robert Kiyosaki – What is Amway? Is Amway a Scam!!??

So there is obviously a long history there and a lot of questions still to be answered.

There are two basic points that you need to know about Amway….

To make money, you need to do two things:


You need to invest in the company and become an Amway affiliate. This means you kind of buy the license rights to their products so that you get a commission for selling them


Actually SELL some products and build a team. This is where over 90% of people fail. A lot of them then go on to call Amway a scam. You need to learn off the best about how to do this. There is no short way around it!

Going back to the video above, Robert Kiyosaki delivered some SERIOUSLY good info about how to become financially independent at the start. As I mentioned, I have learnt a lot off him over the years…

When I start writing and talking about this sort of thing I can talk for a long time. I am passionate abotu wealth creation and getting you to a place where you want to be!

It’s about doing LESS of what you don’t want to do and MORE of what you WANT to do!


Can I actually quote myself here? Well it is my blog right. Seriously, I was taught a similar saying and have coined that as my own…

Back to the Amway Scam…

is amway a scam

There is NO way that a company could be around in the MLM Industry for so long if it was a scam. No Amway is not a scam!

There is however a massive gray area about what exactly is ethical and not. There is a massive focus today on businesses being fair to their customers. There really is so much information out there now about companies and what they do.

Yes, there are a lot of people who join Amway and never make a dollar online. Do most of these people put in little effort? Yes, that is true too. I know there are people who put a lot of effort in as well and fail too but it isn’t common if they are doign the right thing.

It is just a major learning curve for a lot of people. You really need to get in and get busy.

SO If you are thinking about Amway…here are my positives and negatives…

Amway Pros

  • You don’t have to create products. The idea of building a business solely around products that are not even yours would have once been thought of as obsurd. Now it is quite common though. This givey you a whole heap of advantages.
  • Training. You can learn as you go and invest as much as you want.
  • Trusted system that works for people who figure it out.

Amway Cons

  • A lot of people struggle realising the fact that you are building a business around yourself. You are the business and need to expand it using advertising to bring in new customers. There will be competition and set backs as with any business.
  • Massive learning curve for people who have never had anything to do with MLM.

The Verdict

I have never been affiliated with Amway and don’t know exactly what happens on the inside. Is Amway a scam? No it most definitely isn’t, I know that.

I recommend that you do a lot of research before investing into any industry and with this one as well. You need to familiarize yourself with exactly how things work and with what the whole deal is.

That was something I learned early on in my investing career.

So I just want to leave you with this thought.

It isn’t the greatness of the opportunity but what you make of the opportunity.

There are a lot of things that work, you just need to make them work. Get out and get busy.

Buzz Marketing

Are you interested in Buzz Marketing?

You are at the right place! I really love to create a buzz for my products and services but also teach people how to do it.

If this is the first time you are on my blog, MY MAIN topic is setting yourself up financially. Business and marketing has a lot to do with that.

SO to get us started, check out this video…..

Costa Coffee Ad – Buzz Marketing

Exciting right?

You should be buzzed right now if you have any interest remotely related to coffee. That is the whole idea.

I mean everyone loves coffee right?

A TV company isn’t going to spend a whole heap of money running an ad unless they have tested it first hand.

So why put the Buzz in Marketing?

If I use the Costa Coffee ad as an example, there are a few reasons for marketing like that.

  1. Advertisements should provoke emotion. With the coffee ad, I felt a feeling of excitement, joy and fulfillment as I reminisced about my last cup of good coffee. I am not even a heavy coffee drinker but people like us still watch that ad and our emotions are provoked. With Internet marketing or any business, this is a key tip…provoke emotions by creating abuzz around your product or service…
  2. Provide a solution. Once I became slightly emotional during the ad, I became slightly vulnerable (This talk might sound weird lol but is actually what happens). So at the end of the ad there was a solution. There would have been a lot of people buzzing about Costa Coffee after that.Internet marketing has the same principles….

So let’s go on now to talk more about how buzz marketing can work for YOU.

The Hype.

People and businesses have used buzz marketing for a long time now.

The truth though is that there is a lot of research and development going into advertising campaigns.

Creating hype around something is a really powerful thing. If you can make someone feel really special and connect with them, you have built a lasting consumer relationship!

‘A sale is just a transfer of energy from one person to another’

David Sharpe

Do you get that?

If someone is passionate about something, you can’t help but feel the energy coming off them.

Are you ready to get started?

If you are ready to get into buzz marketing and get a really big hype going around your business, I have a detailed plan here for you……

Step #1

Get a good product or service range that you are passionate about. If you really don’t have any yet, I have that covered as well. Click here to see a great product range that I actually promote and recommend for people wanting to get an on-line presence for their business. You can also join the affiliate program and earn 100% commissions from making sales.

Step # 2

Create a real Buzz about your products or services. You have chosen them because they really work right? There is no reason not to go absolutely all out with your marketing. If you are excited, show people how much you are. Move on to the next step for free methods on how to handle your buzz marketing techniques….

Step # 3

Buzz Marketing

Get on social media. If you haven’t done it already, set up free accounts on…


FaceBook (Pages)


Set your profiles up and start to follow and interact with different people. If you aren’t that talkative naturally, you can just post some interesting things about your business and start to build relationships that way. This is the first step in creating a buzz about your business.

Now What?

Find some really great mentors and just start learning off them. It really is amazing how success leaves clues and how you could really have some massive breakthroughs if you start applying that knowledge into real world situations.

Start building your business and building relationships with people.

I have heaps and heaps of info here on my blog that will help you build your business. I want you to get in and get busy and get some great results like I have.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Becoming an Internet Entrepreneur

Have you thought about becoming an Internet Entrepreneur?

Hey there, my name is Colin Burnett and I am an entrepreneur from North QLD, Australia.

Let me give you an insight into my life right now…

Why should you become an Internet Entrepreneur NOW?

So, as you can see I actually do a lot MORE of the things that I want to do and LESS of the things that I don’t want to do right now.

It wasn’t always like that for me. I was typically one of those kids that really didn’t fit in at school. I didn’t have a lot of friends and never had a large group of friends. I just didn’t trust that the crowd knew what they were doing!

If you are more of a maverick or have a lot of friends, it doesn’t really matter at all.

What matters is are you doing what you want right now?

Ask yourself this honestly, Is your life headed in the right direction right now?

If you had asked me that 4 years ago, my answer would have been a simple no.

I have always had the entrepreneurial spirit in me and enjoy being my own man. Working for someone isn’t a long term goal for me at all.



Mark Zuckerberg being possibly the most well known Internet Entrepreneur out there, knows how the world really works.

He knows that you don’t get rich working for someone else. Entrepreneurs kind of just stumble onto things because their minds are always in over-drive.

So here are some steps I have put together on how I became self-made, how others have and YOU can too!

STEP # 1 Dream!!

You have to have a dream. I know I can wonder off into a land of my own if I am in the mood to. I think I get it from my Mum lol. Sometimes I am content with what I have achieved in life so far but I am also highly driven to reach more goals.

A lot of successful entrepreneurs had a dream as a kid. Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and all those guys, they had a clear vision and dared to dream big. They spent less time watching TV and more time visualizing what they could create for the world.

As an Internet Entrepreneur, I personally have a goal to retire people this year. I want to get them to a place where they are happy in life. I want to take them from a place of scarcity to a place of abundance.

Not only that,I want to help people get rich! Don’t you just want to break the shackles?

STEP #2 Hang out.

Get around the right people and spend time with them. If you have certain friends that dis you and your dreams, ditch them, cut them lose. The truth is that these guys are often mis-informed and don’t have a clue what they are talking about!

I have had a relative advise me about investing when they can’t even get a bank loan themselves! Those sorts of people don’t need to be in your lives at all.

It is such a freeing and empowering feeling to get around the right people. Just get serious!

Step #3 Get Busy.

Work is needed for success. How could you not need work? The truth is that at times the on-line marketing industry has a bad reputation for people promising you income for no work. This is an absolutely crazy notion.

Another truth is though that if you love what you are doing, the work doesn’t seem like work. I have fun every day creating content and producing products for people to use and succeed with. This is a really big reward for my efforts.

The lifestyle is another reward. I have been traveling the world and working on my business for some time now. I was just in the US for the first time and have been living in Europe as well. Sound like something you would like to do?

Even if you don’t like travel,you just have more freedom to do WHATEVER you want!

FINAL STEP: Get the right system!

If you are reading this part, I know you are fully committed to becoming an Internet Entrepreneur and living your life the way you want it.

You want to change society and are ready to get started NOW.

As a reward for being ready, I have exclusive access to the system that I used to become an Internet guy. This system is available for a limited time for only $25.

That’s right, you can get started as an Internet Entrepreneur right now for only $25.

>>>>click here for exclusive access<<<<

I want you to take action to get freedom back in your life. You only get one chance at this and NOW is the time to do this.

I look forward to working with you and to your success.

P.P.S Mate, obviously I can’t guarantee any income with this system. As an entrepreneur it is up to you to put the work in. Average Income disclosure is here.







Ideal Life

Question: Are you living your ideal life?

I know what it is like to do MORE of the things I hated and to not do much of the stuff I enjoy.

Let me explain further.

Colin Burnett – How I started living my IDEAL life!

Are you pumped up after that to really make the most of your life?

Firstly, what is the general idea of this term…ideas from a Danish Entrepreneur..

But Bjergegaard is a hugely successful businessman, a co-founder of Rainmaking, which is responsible for eight startups with a total of $50m (£33m) in annual revenue and 100 employees with offices in Copenhagen, London and Munich. It’s because of that success – and the preconceptions that the world has about what it takes to reach that level – that he has decided to let us all in on the secret. You don’t have to kill yourself – working ever longer hours, with no family time, and constantly pushing yourself – to have a good work-life balance.

So what can we take away from a story like that. Basically I have learned that everybody’s ideal life is different. We simply all have different goals and interests.

So basically people should start doing more of what THEY want to do….

This is a great theory lol but it rarely is true. There are so many things that happen in life that we generally get bogged down and stuck in a rut.

I can remember back when I was a teenager but felt like I was 40 years old! I was dealing with all of these problems that I really had no control over. It really sucked trust me.

If you are in a similar position at the moment,I pray for you, I really do. I am not a particularly religious guy but unless by some miracle that you start to stand up for yourself, there is little chance that your life will change.

I too used to be one of those people who sat around thinking I would have so many regrets….

One Day that all changed though..

I started taking back my freedom….

I started taking back my life….

I started disrespecting the haters…..

I started telling people what I really thought….

I STARTED doing more of what I want to do and less of what I DON’T want to do!


 What exactly is your ideal life?

What would you have in there?

what is in your ideal life

In order to reach your goals, it is important that you can envision them. Close your eyes and picture how your life would look like if you could change a few things…

Keep your eyes closed for one minute and imagine all those things….it might be a nice new car, paying off your mortgage, building a new house or paying your uni fees off….

All of that in your perfect ideal life….

Now open your eyes and realize that this IS possible!

All of what you pictured is possible. You just need to start creating your life and not floating through it with things happening TO you….

That is the breakthrough you need….

Whether you…

  • Are in a bad relationship.
  • Have a bad boss
  • Hate your job
  • Are struggling for money
  • Need to help your family
  • Are bankrupt in your business or personal life…
  • Would like to retire…

All of those things and more… can get out there and change your situation starting TODAY.

Just believe in yourself.

Believe you can do it.

I can remember back to my school days where I just had basically 0 self belief. It was crazy,I just has no confidence. I didn’t have good advisors, I didn’t have good friends and my knowledge was poor…

I had to make a change. My change took years and it was a small trigger that stopped it one day. You can do this too.


My business aims to get people doing MORE of what they want to do and LESS of what they don’t want to do. That will lead them to their ideal lifestyle.

As with everything, you can lead a horse to water but can’t make them drink.

If you are ready to make a change in life, I can support you and lift you up until you are able to stand on your own two feet. I can’t hand feed you though, you need to want this yourself.

If you have been down trodden your whole life, get up and get into this. I am strong. I can hold you up.

I want you to succeed.

Type your email in here and I will work with you to create your ideal life…

Double your Money

I got your attention with the ‘double your money’ headline right?

If you are excited right now, you have a right to be.

I have a really big announcement to make…watch this video

This system could double your money about 1000 times over!!

If you don’t believe me, there is some proof….

Some people have heaps of money with this system…

double your money

In fact they have way more than doubled their money. They have made a massive return on their investment.

Before I go too far, I legally have to state that the average earnings are shown above too, there are some people who never make a cent out of investments like that…

Why would I have to state that?

Well firstly,there are a lot of people who invest into this system and never put any effort into building a business. The initial investment is only $25 so some people are just plain lazy….

Others try to have success but fail to learn and keep growing and make something of their lives….

You won’t make those mistakes though right?

If I take you back a few years, I was one of those people. I didn’t have much success in my life and I blamed everybody BUT myself….

Only fools and uneducated people do that. I am sorry if you are offended by that but I was too way back when I first heard that. It took me a long time to change and that’s why I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I did….

Let’s face it, this isn’t the only opportunity to double your money out there but it is a damn good one!! There are plenty of other high potential investments out there.

It really is a chance for you to rise up out of the gutter just like I did….

It’s time to make your money grow…

double your money

So how to start possibly doubling your money?

Maybe you have been around Internet marketing or the MLM industry for a while with limited success. Maybe you have made a lot of money in the past and you’re looking for another business right now.

Whatever you are doing right now, you should be developing yourself personally…

I don’t mean that in a hippie way lol, I come from a farm so I’m not really the hippie type.

What I mean is become knowledgeable……learn how to be good at something…

When you start doing that, people will start coming to you for advice….

To cut a long story short…your world will explode with income opportunities….

Three STEP method to start.


Click on this link and get started with this opportunity for just $25 today. This is a limited opportunity and could be taken down at any time!

Seriously, you need this. It changed my life forever. These dudes are just crazy. There are multiple examples there of people MORE than doubling their money.


Start learning and using their SPECIFIC training to build your knowledge. This is so cool…

I really enjoy helping people out when they are struggling.If you don’t have the skill personally, the training will help them.

Life is just like that…get into this and work hard towards your success!


Get started promoting your products. The blogging platform is the signature product that you can use to start building your business.

Maybe you are a bit scared to get started doing this. For me as well, the fear of the unknown was a little overwhelming at the start.

There are just so many good mentors like me that you can talk to though to help you along the way in doubling your money. If you are lacking a bit of confidence at the start, I will help you until you can stand on your own two feet.

This system will help you with all the tools and training that you need for success. That is the main goal of this company and all the people who run it. We have your interests at heart….

Doubling your money SOONER rather than later…

You need to start growing and learning if you want to get rich. There are a lot of people who I personally used to know who were all talk and no action.

These people really caused a lot of problems for themselves. They will continue to struggle until they change their mindset…

So get busy….

I used to spend a lot of time building this own blog of mine until it started getting authority and traffic from the search engines.

You will only get out what you put in!!!

So instead of just dreaming about doubling your money, actually get out there and learn how to do it.

I always like to quote one of my favourite investors of all time…..Warren Buffet….

I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.

He really means what he says and his advice is some of the best I have ever had!

So join me here, take action and I look forward to working with you!!

Increase Blog Traffic

Exactly how to increase blog traffic is one of the most sought after topics online today. Let’s face it, the majority of people are looking for more traffic for their sites, blogs, sales pages and videos.

Traffic is king. Once you have it, you can start talking to your potential customers and building relationships with them. It really is that simple.

The trouble is that getting traffic generally isn’t easy, especially if you are new to Internet marketing.

So I want to go through a few ways to increase blog traffic. Remember some of this stuff is a little tedious but think of the amazing, automated system you will have at the end.

I’ll start with two broad areas. Let’s talk both paid and free ways.

Paid ways to increase blog traffic.

If you aren’t worried about ranking in the search engines, you can actually use paid advertising to get sales through your blog. It means sending people to your blog.

I’m actually not going to focus on this method much as it basically takes away most of the power of your blog. Sure people get to know you somewhat but you haven’t got much of an automated system. You might even get better results if you send this paid traffic to an interactive video.

So let’s move on to the area that I have had a lot of success in….

FREE ways to increase blog traffic.


increase blog traffic

Now when I say free! some of these techniques are free and some of them cost something initially. The end effect though is that you will have people finding your blog through search engines which doesn’t require advertising.

This is a major deciding factor if you will end up rich or not through blogging.

So to get a blog to rank in the search engines, you need a few key things.

Firstly, you need to create a SEO optimized blog post.

This includes things like…
-choosing a keyword that people are searching for and that you have a chance to rank for. You won’t want a keyword topic that heaps and heaps of people have already written about….
-putting that keyword along with a picture and video with that keyword in their title and alt tags. If you don’t know much about SEO, I may have lost you. I recommend you get this SEO course here and get started learning.
-setting up the page right with some outbound links and so on. Link to some authority sites like YouTube or Amazon etc. they must be related to the topic obviously.

A funny story about the first time I ever created a blog lol. I did some of this stuff right in my blog post but this first step is where I stopped. I worked for 6 months without results….lol….I failed.

I don’t want you to make the same mistake though. So this first step isn’t anything much. You need to do the next two steps to have any chance of ranking at all!

Secondly, you need interaction (likes, comments and reports)

The major search engines like blogs, websites and videos that at least appear popular. If they really are meeting a need, the engine will rank them highly.

So you can use some paid tools to get some interaction with your blog and also social media back links.

This is essential to ranking.

A cheap way to do this as well is to grow a big following on some social media platforms and then submit your blog posts to these sites.

Thirdly, you need backlinks to get you ranking.

This is the engine room of ranking. Remember that engines like Google actually rank posts and not domains so you need backlinks to each post.

A backlink is just a link from another site back to yours. You can really make this happen with some great paid tools. I recommend using this post from my friend Rob Fore to get a good list of tools.

You want some particular types of sites and they all want to be from authority sites. They are sites that already rank very highly in the search engines.

So that’s my guide today to how to increase blog traffic.

Just get out there and do it and you can do it! I started from scratch and just took action and made it to first page!

SIMPLE DS Domination Review

Cool that you stumbled on this DS Domination Review! Have you made money yet?

I have, I make money basically everyday with this system….Are you interested now?

Check out this video.

DS Domination Review – I have made money already!

This DS Domination review is about to get real.

If you wondering what this is and what it can do for YOU…

So how does it work?

I make money by drop shipping on Ebay, that’s basically all this program is. If you are a little confused right now, let me simplify it for you, I go to eBay and sell a product and when someone buys it, I source it from amazon and send it directly to them.

There is obviously a profit margin involved otherwise there wouldn’t be so many people doing it.

It really is very basic..

DS Domination Review

DS Domination Review

So let’s get to the nuts and bolts of this Drop Shipping Domination review….

DS Domination might not be for everyone so I have put together a list of the positives and negatives I have found using this system to make money from day one.

The Pros.

-DS Domination provides the training to get you started right away with selling. It simplifies and ok it’s the mistakes that you will make as a beginner.
- You need very little capital outlay to get started! For basic training it’s only $20 a month which I covered in the first week of using this program.
- The training is from a guy who actually has massive results from using this method to make money online.
-A lot of successful Internet marketers are already using this method successfully to make money so the proof is in the pudding.
-Two ways to make money both from selling the training and actually drop shipping itself. If you have a massive list, you can makes affiliate sales quickly.

The cons

-When you first get started, the income is somewhat limited. You will end to invest a bit of time into listing products and mastering the art of that. As with anything though, the more effort put in, the more coming out.
- Potential account problems. You really have to be very apologetic if for some reason an order is late or the product doesn’t exactly fit the description.
-Outside the US you will need a US account for eBay or it might be difficult to source products. For example when I first started! I used my Australian account and sourced from a few other wholesales. This is relatively easy to do but can be confusing if you use more than one.

Is DS Domination the REAL deal?

Yes, for sure it is. I have made nearly $100 profit already from spending about 5 hours of actually training and listing products.

$20 an hour sitting on your couch looking at cool eBay products sound alright?

If you want this income, check this out…

DS Domination income proof

My mentor in this training has made more than me already and has goals of making $100 000 dollars this year with DS Domination alone…..

I have set the same goal…

Sound like a cool idea?

So if you are really to get instant cash flow from your couch…

>>>>>>click here to get started<<<<<<

Again, I wouldn’t be offering you this opportunity if it didn’t work.

How do you know if this for you?

If you …
-Have a relatively short attention span
-Find blogging or building a website boring
-Are ready to learn.
-Are looking for instant cash flow and to make $100 000 this year from comfort of your own home!

Obviously no income is guaranteed with this program and the income disclosure can be found here. You can’t make any money without some work right?

So if this sounds like an opportunity for you….

>>>>>>click here to get going right now for only $20/month<<<<<<

I want you to succeed if YOU want to succeed!

This DS Domination Review was made for you the customer to make it big in 2014,

Best Motivational Books -Aussie Style!

Hey there! Here is my guide to the best motivational books you can buy.

How cool that you are into reading…

It is becoming a lost art with the new technologies BUT it is very, very powerful how it can transform your life.

Let me take you back in time with this mysterious video….

How I use the Best Motivational Books and get RESULTS?

It’s quite cool how they used to live isn’t it. I come from the country here in Queensland, Australia and like to think that I have a connection to the land as well. It is something that you really can’t describe.

I know my childhood was unique. I mean did you grow up 90 km away from the nearest town hehe?

So with farming practices as well, knowledge is generally passed down through the generations as well. Some of it is written and some of it is verbal….

We all advise different people based on our experiences right? Well its the traditional habit of people how they developed books and journals to contain that information. The information keeps society running and the knowledge present. Crazy how things work right?

So why do we need MOTIVATIONAL books?????

It is often true that we struggle doing something without having some kind of support. Do you know that feeling?

Maybe you are trying to make money online and just have no clue what you are doing.

Therefore you need help to increase your knowledge! Then you will have a way bigger chance of succeeding.

So building your knowledge involves a lot of training and training involves reading books. It really doesn’t matter how you learn, you might even like to listen to audio instead of reading but the knowledge is there!

Motivational books in particular can drag you up to new heights that you never knew were possible before. Motivation is a crazy thing and if it’s backed by a grinding consistency then you are destined for big things. If you consistently follow your dreams, you have a big chance of having massive success.

Do you read much? You should you know. I don’t want to sound like this serious guy who always tells you what to do lol but seriously, it’s very important as part of your personal development.

What is your favourite book of all time?

Here are my personal favourite best motivational books…

Best Motivational Books

Best Motivational Books

I really want you to understand just how much knowledge a book can contain. Some books have most of the knowledge that some person has got in a lifetime. Isn’t that just crazy?

The whole idea of writing a book was to have information written down that can be kept and passed on.

It is still the case today.

I can’t force you to read but I recommend you start…period!

You can make it fun too, I mean life is meant to be fun right?

Just do what you enjoy, why not?

My Best & Favourite Success Books of All Time!

#1 The Way of the Peaceful Warrior.

This book has been around a long time and just oozes knowledge. It is heavy for a reason lol.

First published in 1980,it is a part fictional story about the life of the author Dan Millman.

It is really inspiring the way someone transforms when they are hanging around the right people. Again going back to the original inhabitants of Australia, there were tribal elders for a reason. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who is just feeling lost right now…

Are you kind of at a crossroads in life? I can remember back about 4 years ago when  I had a major turning point in my life, books like this really helped me.

For some this is known as THE Best Motivational book on the market.

#2 The Science of Getting Rich

This book is for people who are deadly serious about their business!

It goes over the complete process of changing your mindset first then getting rich financially second. It really is that simple. The proof is in the pudding though and it takes a lot of work to get rich.

Here is what Amazon said about The Science of Getting Rich.

Wallace D. Wattles introduced the world to the power of positive thinking. He was a profound influence on Michael Losier and James Arthur Ray. With out Wattles “Science Of” trilogy there never would have been books such as The Secret, The Laws of Attraction, and the Power of Positive Thinking. Now you can go directly to the source with this easy to understand lesson book on using the Laws of Attraction to attract wealth. A Thrifty Book is a well designed, easy to read book at an unbeatable price.

I love how this really sets the record straight about things like the law of attraction and tells the truth about getting rich..

Get it!

#3 Think and Grow Rich

This is another personal favourite of mine and is world renowned as basically the best motivational book out there.

It deals with the serious truth of life and how sometimes you really do need to get out there and  discover some new things. I personally really needed to read this a few years ago…

It is similar to most of these books in that it is a heavy read. There is no point beating around the bush, it really takes a lot of energy and passion to be successful.

Think and Grow Rich is the best motivational book in my mind. If you are serious and dedicated to having a really successful life then get this and make a start. As one of my good friends Tony Rush one said…

If you aren’t embarrassed about who you were a year ago,you aren’t learning fast enough. Take MASSIVE action’

#4 Secrets of the Millionaire Mindset

I have to be honest here, I am only half way through reading this book at the time of writing this. That was one of the main reasons that I included it here.

This book shows and proves to you that becoming a millionaire is achievable all you have to do is change your mindset and then TAKE massive action and the results will start to flow.

I like to always point out that reading books ALONE won’t make you rich. Sometimes it is easy to get hung up on that.

Motivational books to help you get rich

#5 The Thrillionaire

I put this here last for a reason!

It really inspired me to start taking steps towards my dream back when I thought my life wasn’t going to amount to much.My mindset was that bad that I had no vision into the future.

Nik Halik being an Aussie is a personal favourite of mine and someone who lives life to the full but also has steady Internet business and investment interests.

He alone got me going….I needed this book…without it,who knows where I would be!

Here is one review on Amazon about this book…

Nik Halik’s book, The Thrillionaire, will change your life! Nik not only shares his own epic adventures with you, but offers wisdom, motivation, and advice on how to make your own life an epic, extraordinary adventure! You owe it to yourself to read The Thrillionaire by Nik Halik.

So this guy is the ultimate example of someone who has a powerful mind. He has simply done what he always wanted and has become a very knowledgeable man over time…

One HUGE final tip…

I know I talk about it a lot but just reading this best motivational books isn’t enough, you need to then follow up…

You need to go out and implement this action like these authors have.

So use my list of best motivational books to get your life where you want it to be starting….

What is Marketing

Wow what a topic. What is marketing and how is it defined by different people? To the general public, it might not seem such a broad subject but if you dig a bit deeper, it is a massive industry.

Marketing is everywhere!

People often say that but then they go on to live their lives and not really put any deep thought to it. Let me give you my Aussie take on marketing!

How do you define Marketing – Aussie Style!

I say marketing is making something look good to other people. It is a crazy area where it really is just so broad. As an Australian who originally comes from a. Farm, I never used to realize that this was such an important part of business.

There is just so much testing involved. I can remember about 5 years ago thinking about how much of a pain this was. It’s like that if you aren’t doing your passion isn’t it.

If you are doing what you like, you really don’t think of it as much as a grind. It’s like me with blogging, I love it. I like teaching people and this is the best way I can do it.

I know a lot of people who think blogging is boring as lol and that’s cool. There are heaps of different ways to market like using videos or paid traffic and they might be way more interesting for you!

As really big point I want to touch on again about marketing…

Life Rule: If you find something you like doing, you will have the energy to market it. This goes for everything in life.

Do you want to maybe play on the beach in the warm sun all day and sip on margaritas?

Well you can probably market that as well

what is marketing

So let’s split this topic up somewhat. (I have been learning some bigger words and new ways to write so forgive me for structuring sentences in all these weird ways)

What is Marketing?

Here’s what the Wikipedia says….

Marketing is the process of communicating the value of a product or service to customers, for selling that product or service.

So I personally am an on-line marketer. There are a lot of advantages of going on-line. The first being that you have access to a global market (This is a MASSIVE advantage when starting or operating a business)

There are however also a lot of different niche marketing areas.

I will just run through these areas briefly, I don’t want to confuse you. Basically you can achieve a lot on your own if your head isn’t full of too much information….all cool and ready???

# 1 Paid

You pay people to advertise your stuff at a certain location. For example, you might have an ad up on a billboard, TV commercial, radio…basically anywhere. You can target who this ad will appear in front of as well. On-line examples are banners and so on…fairly simple but it takes a lot of testing to get results.

#2 Word of Mouth (FREEE)

Well if you manage to get this working for you, it can mean you get rich quickly. It can also work against you if your products or services aren’t valuable though. Free method and can explode your sales quickly.

# 3 Internet /online

This is an area where you can access a global market basically instantly. It wasn’t always like that for all you young guys out there like me!!!! We weren’t always connected like that!

So there are just a few examples of where to market. The actual 5 step marketing process isn’t actually that interesting and can be confusing.

So I guess the main reason you are here is to actually find out….

What can marketing do for me and my business?

Basically it can take you from the dog house to the pent house. I found that out the first time I ever had a website. I didn’t know much about anything and the site didn’t take off.

Basically I sucked at everything, no joke!

That’s true for first attempts at a lot of things though isn’t it. I put all this info together so you don’t make the same mistakes though and you can be successful quicker than me.

This time in my life was long before I understood exactly what marketing is!

It feels good passing down the knowledge… I’m in Australia, this reminds me of the aborigines. The first folk that Australia had. These guys traditionally didn’t write but pass down knowledge from generation to generation by word of mouth.

In today’s world we traditionally do it with books and movies and more recently blogs and websites. We are in the Information Age and people just want more and more information!

What stuff? All sorts of things that are generally divided into services or products.

I mean I know people who have earned over $2 MILLION with this easy system (average income disclosure here as well)

Please just open your mind to the possibilities out there. I know you might be struggling right now, you might be in the grind right now and wondering why your life isn’t as good as you would like it to be.

I mean just scraping by with money and all that stuff really sucks doesn’t it? It really is crazy how bad life can get sometimes. I hope you aren’t in a really bad place right now but if you are….I want to life you up.

It was the same for me….

I was down and out. It was about 4 years ago. It feels like a lifetime now but back then, I had come to a point in life where something had to change. If it didn’t, I honestly don’t know where I would be right now.

I was working on and managing a farm for my parents in outback Queensland Australia. It was hell. I don’t like to go into this dark place of my life much but I am writing this to inspire you that you can go from ANYWHERE to being successful.

My dad was basically my boss and had been my whole like. I didn’t know anything but work. No girlfriend, no self confidence and no hope. My finances sucked and I was living a lie. I wasn’t learning anything and was depressed.

Wow , how did I get to be a world traveller then?

So if you don’t know much about marketing, it can change your life.

For me, I started with myself. I became more knowledgeable and became a better product myself.

I just started looking after myself… blokes out there will know what I’m talking about right???

Now I enjoy a life of doing more of what I want to do and a whole lot LESS of the things I don’t want to do….

I trust you now know more about ‘What is Marketing’ and how it can help you….
