The other day I had prompted my students to listen to a powerful audio seminar because I didn't feel as if writing about it would do much justice.
Of course, I should have known better.
People will only listen to about 5 seconds before filling their blanks with their own fantasies about how all of this works.
To be clear, this is in reference to my investor partner who has just recently given me the green light to allow my students to directly submit deals to him. Yes, this is phenomenal because this has NEVER happened in the last dozen plus years I've been working with some of these guys. But not only is he offering direct partnerships, he's also doing loans for down payments and rehab on property deals as well.
So, I'll give you the 30-second elevator pitch on what you need to know about my investor partner who wants to work directly with a handful of my students:
1) He's offering direct access to himself to submit deals through a special password protected website that will ONLY be offered to those who get the 2016/2017 Raising Capital Course Upgrade.
2) He's also offering a loan program where he'll lend cash on property deals provided that he can get an equity stake or put a lien on the property deal. This means that you cannot ask for money for anything else OTHER than a piece of property. Period. I'm not sure how to make this any more clear. He's not offering money for businesses or other enterprises right now. (This could change in the near future but for now it's all about CASH FLOWING property deals.
Now, let me explain a little bit about how each one works so that you have a better perspective on this direct partnership.
You'll start with a cash flowing property deal on either side of the coin (for partnership or a loan). You CANNOT submit for a partnership or loan without a deal otherwise you won't be able to submit. The system won't let you. The way the website is set up is that each box must be filled in with the appropriate information otherwise nothing can be submitted. That's the beauty of this whole thing. You'll be able to submit directly to this investor partner (and this is the FIRST TIME I've ever offered this option). But you have to have your deal, numbers, and other critical information FIRST otherwise the deal CANNOT be submitted. Simple.
I've already had students ask me a bunch of stuff about whether he'll fund a business, cars, private homes, etc. I think I was pretty clear in the audio seminar that he won't do any of this stuff. So, again, if I wasn't clear, I'm aiming to be clear now. No businesses, no cars, no private homes, and nothing isn't CASH FLOW INVESTMENT real estate related. No exceptions.
And finally, this is a brand new pilot program that I've never offered to my students so I don't know how long we'll offer this. It's ONLY available to those who get the 2016/2017 Raising Capital Course because this password-protected website with all of it's information is located in my resource directory. And no, this actually WASN'T my idea. My investor stated that he didn't want droves of people doing this and that I needed to figure out a way to weed out the tire-kickers and people who don't understand how to work with investors so it was my idea to implement this in my upcoming Raising Capital course upgrade where I thoroughly train all of my students in how to work with investors. So, it actually worked out beautifully.

The other day I gave you a short list of 3 of my most powerful success strategies. Then yesterday I thought about something. I'm perhaps missing one of the most powerful of them all.
Not tithing exactly, even though that counts. But I'm referring to giving to others.
Now, the issue I have with tithing to an organized sect or church is that, for many people, it feels like an "obligatory" type of deal. When anything feels like you're obligated in doing it, immediately it loses all power. Period. No exceptions. Again, I'm not saying tithing is bad. Not at all. But do an "inner check" with yourself to make sure that you feel like you're providing a great service to your church and that the act makes you feel great to the pit of your stomach...or not. The second it doesn't feel anything more than an obligation means that you need to change it up.
There's only one place I've ever felt I've received pure blessings in return for the money I give and that is giving to someone who has nothing but the shirt on his back. Yes, I'm one of those people who routinely gives to the people who stand on street corners with cardboard signs. Yes, some of them are scammers, alcoholics, and drug addicts. So what? That has nothing to do with MY intentions, only theirs. My intention is to help another human being who is in need and that is where the universal power comes in. It matters not in what they do with the money afterward as long as my feelings toward it (to help them out) is there 100%. (To be clear, I don't help absolutely everyone standing around with a cardboard sign. I "feel them out" with my gut to see if I want to give to them or not. I trust my intuition in that way.)
Whenever I give to someone who has nothing to their name, I get the greatest blessings from them starting with the first words from their mouth and their first reaction in getting the money. Usually they sit there with nobody helping out or, even worse, when people feel the need to insult them for asking for money. So, when a kind face comes with a hand full of money, it surprises them. Then, almost always, I get a "God bless you" from them. And it's genuine from the base of their being. And I receive that energy, making me feel great. Then I'm blessed in so many ways because of that energy flow.
This is why I don't like traditional "tithing." The word itself means a tenth...or a tenth of your income. So, it almost seems like a forced payment plan in a way when donating precisely 10% of what you make (gross) to a specific church organization. When things are that structured, the magic begins to dwindle just in the habit part alone. But when you donate money with your best intent and heart in the gift, you are blessed much, much more than any other format out there.
If you're not sure about what I'm talking about, the next person that you see standing there with a sign and nothing to his name, reach into your pocket and pull out a five or ten...or a twenty dollar bill, if you feel so inclined. And pay attention to what is happening within yourself when you do it. Pay attention to the blessing that you feel from the person receiving the money. And most importantly, revel in the feelings you have when you receive that blessing from the recipient of the money. They are always most grateful and the feelings within you send you to the mood with happiness and elation.
Here's what happens:
When all of these energies start flying around -- starting from your desire to give the gift to the deep sense of gratitude from the recipient to your feelings of elation from being able to help someone -- the universe responds with gifts to you. It all works like a big giant vacuum. Nothing can go "empty" for long in the universe. So, technically, your giving money to someone in great need causes this sense of "empty" as far as the energy goes in the universe. You're $20 lighter...or whatever you gave to the recipient. This allows for the universe to "rush in" to replace it, usually at least 10 fold but many times much, much more depending on the levels of energy flow between you and the recipient. I've seen returns of 100 fold or higher in some cases. The good news is that it's pretty immediate.
Here's the slippery slope though. You can't give with the sole intent to get something without any other intentions otherwise this doesn't work. You can't say to yourself, "I'm gonna give twenty bucks to that bum over there so I'll win the lottery tonight." Not gonna happen! But if you're intent is to truly help that person (and it's not only money that helps, you know), the energy intention behind it is absolutely everything in this universal equation.
Don't believe what I'm saying? Test it out. The next person you see holding a sign asking for money, IF you feel inclined to help this person then dig into your pocket and come up with some dough. Give it to him (or her) and feel the energy that comes from the transaction. As you walk away, you'll feel lighter and happier. This, in and of itself, creates more energy and this positive energy pulls to you everything that is in alignment with your soul, your needs, and your life's path.
I have some of the most awesome and supportive students (even though I complain about the "bad apples" a lot). When I sent out my last couple of emails, I got a lot of supportive emails from students telling me that they love my teaching style, that they've been implementing the things I've been teaching, and sharing some of their rather mind-blowing success stories with me. These are the emails I live for. These are the ones that keep me going.
Many of you know that I'm doing a very rare one-time 4-week mentorship group on my Success Breakthrough & Transformation Strategies. This is specifically designed for those who are struggling and banging their heads up against the wall because they claim (or maybe they really are) trying everything in their immediate power to become successful in business or investing (or both) but it's just not working no matter what they do.
So, what I wanted to do here is share some of my secrets on how success works and why it seemingly eludes you.
Success Secret #1: Stop Chasing and Start Attracting
Success and wealth absolutely HATE desperation. Just like you would hate talking to or having to do with anyone who is desperately hanging onto you at, say, a cocktail party. Wealth and success are both the same way. The more you try chasing it down, the more it escapes you. It's like running after a chicken at full speed in a backyard the size of an acre. Catching that little sucker probably won't happen. And if it does, it was at the great expense of wasting a lot of time while tiring your ass completely out in the process, making you think out loud, "Was this really worth the effort?"
Desperation reminds me of an oil drop in a cup of water. You'll notice that the drop repels the water around it, pushing it away. Yes, they "sort of" co-exist in the cup but not really. The water is under the oil, wishing it wasn't there since the oil itself is a burden upon it. You can't be that burden to success. You can't try fitting in somewhere that you don't belong. You have to BECOME wealth and success in order for it to want to infiltrate your life with its gifts.
So...what do you do? How do you stop chasing? I think the answer is within the question. STOP CHASING. It's that simple. Sit down, take a breather, re-evaluate your life and what's important, and create a money-making strategy that you're passionate about where the strong desire overcomes the desperation for the money. You then focus on the passion, the project, and the business. The money will come because you've stopped chasing it. It's that simple. Remember, you can't do things just for the money because that's chasing it down. Chasing equals success eventually coming to you because you've stopped chasing and started focusing on the passion of the project. See how that works?
The basis of this is letting go. When I start getting stressed out about my businesses or something I really can't control, the secret is saying, "F*** it!" and just letting it go. When you've done all you can do, sometimes you have to let those invisible hands help you with things you can't do on your own.
Success Secret #2: Being Grateful for What You Have Now...AND a New "Twist" to Gratitude
I'm always sitting on the fence when it comes to trying to decide whether I want to write a metaphysical book...or not. One moment I think it would be unique because it'll talk a lot about my experiences with Heaven and how things are over there (or rather here but most people don't see through that thin veil)...or if I should just keep those experiences to myself. One moment I think it would help people but on the other hand, we're such a screwed up world that I think most people are beyond help. Then I internalize and keep everything to myself. I'm not sure if that's beneficial or not but for now it works for me. As messed up and violent our world has become, sometimes internalizing is the best thing to regroup.
One of the bases of success is being grateful for what you have now. I really am grateful...for absolutely everything. I'm grateful for my beautiful daughter and every moment I get to spend with her. I'm grateful for my dog (Sally) and my 3 cats: Pineapple, Scooby and Bobo. I'm grateful for my business, my students, my Rose, everything.
But it's not good enough to throw around the phrase "I'm grateful..." then adding a bunch of things to the end as if you're reciting what you're going to say at the Thanksgiving table this upcoming November. You have to believe it, know it, and feel that sense of gratitude in the pit of your stomach for it to count. When you're grateful for what you have, even if it's only a little, the universe wants to give you more or give you ideas (those "Eureka!" moments) on how to get more. You have to respect God and the universe for what's been provided to you already (even if it's not that much) and you have to PROVE that you have that respect otherwise nothing more will be provided to you.
It floors me at how many students I communicate with who complain endlessly in an email to me. Never once do they give kudos to what they have or how they got it nor do they give thanks for the things that will be provided to them in the weeks, months, and years to come. Yes, that's right. There's a TWIST to this. You can (and should) be grateful for what you have now and the experiences you've had that has benefited you to this point. You can (and should) also express gratitude for what the universe is about to provide to you from resources to ideas to money to...all of it! Then that throws the expectation ball into the universe's court and it works every time in attracting what you've been grateful for if you do it from a state of conviction, honesty, and integrity. So, do it. Each night come up with 5 things that happened that you were grateful for that day. The next day, list 5 things that you're expecting will happen to/for you that you're already grateful for. Do this for a solid 7 days and see how magically your life changes.
Success Secret #3: Freaking Go for It Already!
Tire kickers are at the very bottom of my list of people I'd have a conversation with, usually involuntarily at that. Lazy people suck and I have no patience or use for people like this. I can't make someone be motivated. I can't teach someone common sense or how to be smart. There are a lot of limitations I have as a teacher and trainer without a working magic wand. But the basis of all success comes down to one single thing: ACTION. And you can't take action without deciding to go for it and just f****** do it already!
I love the notion of deciding on something. To me, it's quite possibly the single-most powerful action you can take without actually lifting a finger. And it's the prelude to where the magic happens. But to decide without doing, that's certain death right there. You can't say you're going to do something then waffle away into flakey-dom while binge-watching the latest season of The Game of Thrones while taking no action for your new idea. That is disrespectful to yourself and it's certainly disrespectful to the universe who, presumably gave you the idea to move forward with whatever it is you decided on to begin with. And when the universe passes out ideas that you get all psyched up about then end up doing nothing with, the ideas stop coming to you and are given to the DOERS in the world who will take action.
Fear is the biggest motivator for people to buy things. It's also the biggest action inhibitor ever known to man. Fear can physically paralyze someone into a complete stone-like state. This is why they call it being a deer in the headlights. Standing still will get you nowhere.
Let me share a little tiny secret to the universe that can make you all the difference in your life right now. The universe LOVES movement, even if you start on a path that turns out to be the wrong one, it'll quickly put you on the right path by throwing out new ideas, having different people come along with new resources, or whatever is needed to put you in the right direction. Here's what the universe hates: non-movement, stagnation. If you're going to stand still, the universe will help someone else who is in motion and in need of the assistance. It'll come back to you when you get off your ass and start moving in a specific direction.
This is why I don't worry about making mistakes. If I'm not sure of the direction I want to take but I have an "inkling" of what I want to do, I start the movement and then I'm further guided into what I really should be doing. It happens every time. You just have to TRUST the process and KNOW that this universal system will work for you...because it works every time.

You're not going to believe this. Hell, I hardly believe it myself after going over it in my mind 1,000 times. This will FLOOR you in the power of those "things" that are between what we see everyday as "reality" and that world that we can tap into that's sort of "magical" in quality that defies all logic and science.
It happened on the Fourth of July, to be exact. But let me rewind a little bit more. The week before, I had finally had it with where my admin office for Global Success was located. It was an office building that seemed to be breaking apart by the day. We had constant phone problems. (Two of our phone lines stopped working altogether rather mysteriously with no explanation.) Our Internet service worked about 70% of the time. When it did work, it was slower than AOL dial-up service back in the 1990s. I would have to upload any audio or video file using my service at home otherwise the system at the office would completely crash every single time. AT&T couldn't fix it and it just got worse and worst as time went on.
There were a variety of other issues with the building that I won't bore you to death about but I'll tell you this: If you were paying attention at all to what I've been saying over the past couple of months about letting go of the things that are draining you dry (whether it be mentally, emotionally, financially...or whatever), you need to get rid of it. And fast.BEFORE it completely sinks you.
I had also been telling you about a long list of people, things, and situations I've been ridding myself of for the past several months from business activities to family and friends right down to my conniving hairdresser. Little did I know that there was more work to do. I had to get rid of an office space that seemed to be draining my energy.
Now this is the part where it kind of gets weird and strange so bear with me here. I have this "gift" (more like a curse, as far as I can tell) where restless spirits will "notice" that I notice them and they try to connect with me. Being a ghost probably sucks in its own right because they're there, floating around in this lost stage of purgatory almost, and nobody knows there there. It's like being a human being walking around and nobody can see or hear you. As you can imagine, you'd get frustrated pretty damn quick. And that's what I believe it's like for a ghost or trapped spirit.
So, this spirit...I kind of noticed right after I moved in but I felt him mostly upstairs (where my office wasn't located). When I noticed him, he wanted me to notice more of his activities. I didn't really care. As long as he stayed out of MY office, I was fine with the dude being there. But then he decided to start frequenting my office at night. He'd close my office door while I was gone. He'd throw stuff on the floor. He'd misplace things on my desk. He'd freak out my fish, killing 2 of them within 2 weeks. (This is the point where I had to draw the line.)
I started telling him that I was unhappy with his presence and that he needed to go. That pretty much did nothing. So, I finally told him that if it didn't stop, I was going to move my office altogether. (Not really because of him but because of all the other MANY issues with the building but...he probably already knew all that. He's a ghost, after all. He heard my many conversations with staff about my issues with the building for months and months.)
Believe it or not, he started being "good" for a little while with the threat of my moving. But I pissed him off fierce when I brought in a pile of boxes and started packing. This was when I moved PART of my office out into an office/warehouse space around the corner since I needed the extra space. Since he thought I was moving everything out, he started getting overbearing with his presence.
I thought it was just me but the entire office building was getting "heavy" for me in a very depressed way. I felt sad going into the building each day. Weird people and employees started coming into my life. A long-time employee of mine decided to quit suddenly. (Maybe she was part of my people purging track but I didn't realize it at the time). Rose told me that she would start feeling so depressed sitting at her desk that many days she just wanted to sit there and cry. (I thought it was just me until she told me that.)
While I was out of the country last month, I made the executive decision to pack up all the stuff and to move the office when I got back. I had made all the arrangements and let Rose (my only employee left after all of this) know that we would be moving the following week when I returned. She was surprised but relieved, I'm sure.
As a birthday gift, Ron gave me this spray called "Spray the Shit Out" or something to that effect. It was from a New Age bookstore in Michigan and was equivalent to liquid sage and some other stuff for getting rid of bad energies, I guess. My daughter got a hold of it and couldn't stop spraying it (typical for many kids with the opportunity to spray something). She sprayed half the bottle in the office I was packing up to permanently leave.
After we moved everything out, I couldn't help to notice that the heavy energy was gone. Hmmmm...this was odd. I had moved my entire office and the energy (ghost, spirit, or whatever it was) had left too? The place had a great energy when I was gone. It was light and bright and inviting. (If it had stayed that way, I wouldn't have moved in the first place!)
I had this dreaded fleeting thought. He had attached himself to me and followed me out of the office. (Later I'd realize that I was correct in this theory.)
Fast forward to the Fourth of July again. I was playing music on my rock speakers outside when suddenly I noticed that the same song started playing over and over again. I had the speakers hooked up to my iPad in my room upstairs so I went up to see what was going on. When I went into the closed room (keeping the pets out of my bedroom), this 15 lb. vase had "fallen" on the iPad and a pile of books and papers were all over the floor (with the iPad and other items). There's no way that this vase could have just "fallen over," unless we had a major earthquake (which didn't happen). This is when I realized where the spirit had landed. He was in my bedroom.
Moments later, my daughter was complaining that she had misplaced a bottle of fluid to keep her newly pierced ears clean. She had looked everywhere. It was gone. I was on my laptop on my bed. I told her that I had to shut off the rock speakers and that I would help her find the solution. I got up off the bed, shut the rock speakers off, and the moment I got back inside the solution with a cleansing pad was sitting neatly in the very spot my ass was sitting when I was on my laptop. It just had appeared there from nowhere.
I refuse to put up with this type of activity so I busted out my driest sage stick and got to work smudging my entire house, verbally expressing that no negative energies or spirits were welcome in my house and they had to leave. Pronto!
The exact second I finished my sage work and noticed that my cat Pineapple was attacking something on the floor. I looked and here's the huge ass larger-than-life -- check out the picture I uploaded here! It was the size of the largest butterfly you could ever imagine but bigger. It's a scary ass moth/bug thing and I've never seen anything like it before!
My step-son wanted to kill it. I told him no. Because I had a very strong feeling that the spirit WAS the moth. (I told you that this would get weird.) I told him to get it out of my house and he did with an oversized cup that I gave him.
It's been said that spirits can become moths. These things also mean death. Whichever way you look at it, don't you think it's weird that it showed up right when I was done saging a spirit out? I really doubt it's a coincidence. I don't believe in that sort of thing anyway. But this sort of thing with a spirit turning into a moth has never happened to me before.
Long story short (too late for that), I haven't felt the spirit in my house nor has anything happened since the moth was carried out of my house and into the darkness only moments before the fireworks display started right down the street from my house.
To me, this is just a reminder that there is a really fine line between what we perceive as "reality" and the magic that lies beneath, in between, and above us at all moments of our lives.
You can tap into that magic...or you can keep buying into the reality that you've created for yourself. You can start creating a dream-like life...or you can settle for the misery that you've sold yourself on for the past several decades.
Reality is...if you don't decide to use the magic by understanding HOW it works, you'll never have what you dreamed for yourself. But you can learn the magic and discover how it can change everything for you...in only 30 days.
CLICK HERE and you'll be blown away at how your entire life is about to change!
I'm not sure if you noticed yet or not but I've been taking a bit of a breather these days. I've kind of hung back in the wings while just observing and planning my next move after doing my last seminar event in Las Vegas this past May.
So...what am I observing? What am I contemplating at this moment in my life?
I'm trying to decide if it's worthwhile for me to continue teaching people...or not. It seems that very few listen to me. Many attend my events, workshops and mentorship groups but few follow through. Yes, those who follow through become massively successful because what I teach is real, relatively easy to understand and implement, and is life-changing for those who let it. Some of my students are making millions a year now. But what bothers me are those who are still sitting on their asses doing nothing. Why is that? Why are they sitting there...doingnothing?? I don't get it and I've started to take some of this personally. Actually, I'm now taking it as a direct personal insult, truth be told.
Did you hear that? That's the part where I dropped the microphone at the end of my Vegas Event. (I actually didn't drop the mic. That's a metaphor for...I'm done. But you get the point.)
And the reason, again, is that I need to work more directly with Wealth Warriors and less with the tire-kicker dopes out there whose entire long-term financial plan revolves around winning money off a scratch-off lottery ticket. The good news, however, is that I've done a pretty good job getting rid of most of these slackers. They've since jumped on the latest shiny penny that's come along. But I still have some more work to do if I am to stick around and service those who truly are serious in doing extremely well in business and investing.
But I only know of a small handful of students who are this serious. The rest are either hiding in the trenches or are non-existent altogether. I'm still trying to decide if it's worth my time to vet out these Wealth Warriors for a Last Main Stand series of Wealth Warrior trainings for both business and investing...or not. I'll let you know when I make that final decision.
I've had a couple of ridiculous altercations with some students of mine recently which doesn't make me want to stick around and keep teaching people my success and wealth-building strategies. One of such altercations was with a lazy bitter woman who started off with my corporate credit building course and didn't understand why I strongly suggest that she get her personal FICO above that 720 mark. "It's hard to improve my credit, I've tried." Really? Because I underwent a bankruptcy that knocked the wind out of my credit score for many years and when I finally unlocked the secrets of pulling up my credit score, I was able to increase my FICO by hundreds -- yes, you read that correctly -- HUNDREDS of points in just over a year. Within a year after that, I had just over $260,000 in unsecured business credit to my name.
But that's the difference between me and a loser tire-kicker. I get off my ass and work the steps. I do the work. I do the stuff. I take action. I get it done. I make it happen.
Most will just sit there and cry, complain and make every excuse in the book as to why something can't work before they even try any REAL workable techniques to do something. Excuse-makers are useless to me. Those are the people I've been campaigning to get to drop from my email list. (If you're one of them, please get off my email list right now. The link is at the bottom of this email. I refuse to work with people who won't take action to make changes in their lives.)
But this doesn't include ALL of you. I realize this. I know this in my heart. I get your emails. I talk to you on the phone. I know some of you are still out there, working to make your business take off day in and day out. For you, I'm still here. For everyone else, forget I exist.
However, here's the key to all of this -- and perhaps this is something you've been waiting for for some time now -- and that is this...CLICK HERE and I'll tell you all about it. This is something that could change it all for you...and in only 30 days starting next week.
I don't know about you but this entire year has been chalked off as a total waste of time so far. I feel like I've been walking in mud, not accomplishing a lot and everything taking 100x more the effort than usual to complete...and this is on days where I actually have clarity and focus (which is far and few between these days).
Have you been feeling the same way?
Chances are that you have been feeling this way and you don't know why.
Now humor me for a minute if you don't believe in this stuff. And if you do, this will make some sense as to why this year (so far) hasn't been working out at all for most of us.
If you study the earliest societies, you'll notice that many of them believed in what the stars and planets could tell them when it came to predicting the future. Most civilizations who built pyramids had done so in alignment of certain important celestial bodies. They did this for a reason. They believed that these bodies could help tell them about the present and the future of what's to come. And many knew, unfortunately, exactly when their demise would transpire because of this. I'm not sure what's worse. Knowing the future...or not. Especially if you're "told" that the end is near. Then what do you do?
My mom was an amateur astrologer, although she did get pretty good at it by her life's end. She knew secrets about the planets and how it would affect people when they did (or didn't) do certain things. I took much of what she said with a grain of salt. As a kid, well...who freaking cares about the planets and which houses they are in your life, right?
But as I got older, like many of us, I wanted to know what I could control and figure out to better enhance my life experience here. I think all of us (who have any brain to speak of, that is) would take advantage of ANY tool that could give us an upper hand in helping us along in the positive in life. Only a fool would take the philosophy of "taking it as it comes without warning" if there are tools in place to help circumvent some of these problems and issues.
However, what I've learned in astrology so far is that there really isn't much you can do. Issues and problems will come when they're supposed to. Life changes will happen when they're meant to happen. And when the freight train comes barreling through with no brakes, much of the time there's really nothing you can do about it except cope and deal.
So...no magical solution here. Not with astrology anyway. It just makes us understand the "whys" behind how we're feeling and what is transpiring on a national and global level sometimes.
But back to you and me, because that's all that's important for this short moment here.
Last year (in the last weekend of September) I mentioned something about the second of three very powerful eclipses that took place in a rare trio-eclipse happening that takes place once in a long while. Lunar eclipses are good for "cleaning out the house" or getting rid of things that no longer service you in your life anymore. It could be that sucky job or lover or something else that's just getting in the way of you being the best you can be. On top of that, it was a blood mood. I was boarding a flight at JFK in New York and I saw the blood moon eclipsing. It was at 50% right before I took off. Between that and being with the Pope in New York City that weekend, I felt...different. I can't explain it. But I felt like some major (good) changes were about to sweep through my life.
Back up to a month prior when the first of this trio of eclipses hit. Lea, my long-time right-hand gal, suddenly left my employ to take a much better position elsewhere. While I was overjoyed that she found a position that was much better for her (in commercial banking) that gave her all of the benefits she's wanted, I felt a little "lost" for awhile. Days later I got a killer kick-ass business idea that I began to implement in the first days of September.
During this time in my life, I made this rather sudden decision to close down a multi-million-dollar business because I didn't believe in it. In fact, right after I got back from New York, I started closing it all down. But to end a business of that size doesn't happen overnight. In fact, I just sewed up some loose ends of it just this past week and there's one thing left I have to do: close the merchant and bank accounts. And that's pretty much it.
Eclipses will remove what's not working while giving you something new to work with. At least that's the theory.
But let's get to the part as to why we've been feeling like we're in a cloud, walking through mud, and feeling a little disconnected for this entire year so far...
We've had a very unusual mix of once-in-a-lifetime planetary mix that has been a big part in feeling the way we have. But forget about the specifics since I'm pretty sure you don't care. The big one for me was when a little planet called Mars went retrograde and this is the planet I rely heavily on for my energy, aggression, passion, and enthusiasm. So, essentially, all of that was gone...until Mars just "woke up" on June 29th and is now getting back on track (rather quickly, I might add) in giving me back all of those things that I need to be...me!
What's the point in all of this?
From now through the rest of this year, all of our projects will work out well as long as they are in alignment with what we're supposed to be doing. (And for those of you who have been starting new businesses and enterprises but haven't made much progress, you'll either see the progress OR you'll realize that you'll have to shift to another type of business/project that's more in alignment with what you're supposed to be doing.)
Here's the key though: you can't sit on your ass and expect checks to come floating down from the clouds and into your mailbox. You have to start something and work on it. And this "thing" that you start, it MUST be something you REALLY want to do. It can't be something just for the money otherwise you'll find yourself banging your head up against the wall because it's not working. Or, as in my case, taking 9 months to close down a million-dollar-annual enterprise because the thought of continuing makes you want to barf on yourself. As it did with me.
Now here's the tricky part: TRUST. To let go of what's not working means that you have to trust that something new and awesome and profitable is right around the corner. You just have to trust that it'll show up. And it'll be there.
Here's what I have to offer to you: a means of finding that profitable enterprise that will change everything that your life is now and turn it into a dream in the years to come. But that's only if you do the work. I'll show you HOW to do it. But YOU have to actually DO it. And no, it's not hard. Especially if you're working with a product that you really love. It's not work at all. In fact, you won't work another day in your life!
