Here’s another awesome success story for you, from one of our clients.
Just six years ago Nick Cownie was working as an acupuncturist, working hard but making just $16,000 a year. He was also struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder, as a result of being held up at gunpoint a few years earlier. Then in 2006 he stumbled across some teachings that enabled him to completely eliminate the problem in seven minutes!
This led Nick down a path of massive learning, and he set out on a quest to master his mind, and eventually teach others how to do it as well. Hear his incredible story here:
After attending one of our 4 Day workshops and applying what he learned about online marketing, Nick went from near-empty classrooms to creating a multi-dimensional suite of teaching channels including books, webinars and automated online training that reaches thousands of students without him even having to be present. And much of his marketing is also automated!
Could you transform your business so it could be run from your iPad anywhere in the world?
View the case study here:
Join the workshop that changed Nicks life: http://www.ourinternetsecrets.
We just love being inspired by other people who have been successful online. It’s one of the reasons we love what we do, especially when our students start to make a big difference in their lives and the lives of others around them.
At the next OurInternetSecrets workshop we’ve invited 7 new inspiring people just like Nick to share their lessons and learnings with you. They’ll be going through in detail what they did and how they applied their workshop learnings to their business.
The stories range from those making an extra few hundred a week, to those creating 7-figure incomes. All ages, all walks of life. The one thing they have in common, is that they all attended the 4-day OurInternetSecrets workshop.
If you haven’t yet booked your place, then remember, as a client of ours you qualify for two tickets to this info-packed event. You’ll leave with everything you need to create your own online business.
It’s on 14th-17th June at Mantra Legends on the Gold Coast.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Daryl and Andrew

“OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD Brilliant and Amazing course. Get yourself there whatever it takes.” Sal Martin , Byron Bay

Thought you’d enjoy this inspiring case study…
Simon and Joanne Bowen come from humble beginnings, with Simon originally working as an auto-electrician in country Western Australia and Joanne originally working as a vet’s assistant.
Joanne was petrified of speaking on stage but at our last 4 day workshop she mustered up the courage to tell her story after 30 years of avoiding public speaking!
She has long been known as Australia’s ‘competition queen’ having won over $600,000 in prizes! After applying some of the strategies she learned at the 4 Day workshop, she was able to generate a passive income by teaching other people what she does. Watch it here:
Joanne’s husband Simon was working as a management consultant, and was looking for a way to leverage his time (sound familiar?!).
Together they now generate $4000/month selling info products, and as a result of what they learned from the workshop they’ve implemented several other strategies which have added another $293,000 in extra revenue in 17 short months.
Question is, are you going to be our next success story?
We’ll be teaching you exactly the same system we taught Simon and Joanne (plus more) at our next Our Internet Secrets Workshop from 14th-17th June on the Gold Coast.
And to put the icing on the cake, we’ll have a bunch of real life case studies and success stories so you can see for yourself the possibilities to create the lifestyle you’ve always wanted.
Register your seats right now
Look forward to seeing you there!
Daryl and Andrew
PS – Here are some more comments from attendees at our past workshops…
“Fantastic workshop, absolutely love the system. Guest speakers were awesome and no hard sells. This system applies to so many niches and industries and its proven. Can’t believe its FREE!” Suzanne Steiner, Perth, WA
“Opened up real possibilities of creating a passive income that didn’t exist before. Highly encourage you to attend.” Peter Anderson, Brisbane
“Don’t miss this workshop – it’s incredible! Appreciated Andrew and Daryl’s openness, honesty and no hype or pressure. My kind of workshop.” Louise Binnion, Gold Coast

|Don’t know about you, but we’ve been shaking our heads at the antics of both sides of parliament lately. And being an election year it just seems to get sillier! We’ve been watching the Treasurer trying to put a smiley face on an $18 billion dollar hole in the forecast, and the opposition telling us that they can do a better job. Really, we’re not impressed with either of them!
And we hear lots of fearful comments from people about “What entitlements are they taking away from me? How am I going to pay the bills now?”
The reality is, the government is broke. They’re spending way more than they’re bringing in in taxes. Being reliant on them to look after us is NOT something we’re prepared to do!
So, rather than ask for your support as Andrew runs for parliament (sorry guys, this is not an “Andrew for Prime Minister” email!), we want to show you the system we’ve set up that makes us financially free. So we’re not reliant on the next government handout.
We’ll take you through our financial freedom system step-by-step at the next Our Internet Secrets workshop on 14-17 June. Here’s the link to book if you haven’t done so already:
This workshop’s for you if you want to take back control of your financial future, and not be reliant on the whims of the government.
It’s for you if (like us) you feel that the government have become serial liars (or in political speak, simply carrying out their “quarterly readjustment of the facts”)!
And it’s for you if you realize that superannuation and the pension are not going to cut it, when you’re ready to retire.
So it’s not an election rally, but you will get to meet a bunch of like-mined people at our event – people who are sick of being “victims of the system”, and who are ready to take back control of their financial futures.
We’d love to see you there.
PS – We suggest you bring a friend or partner with you. It’s always easier to apply what you’ve learned after the workshop when you can discuss it with someone you know. As a client of ours you qualify for two tickets. Please forward this link to a friend and ask them to register as well:
PPS – here are some more comments from happy past-attendees:
“I’ve never experienced anything so worthwhile in my life! You will not regret a moment that you spend in this environment, a true game changer.” Christine Law, Canberra
“Really excited at the possibilities this workshop created for me. Helped me by covering all the basics plus also some more advanced strategies. DO IT!” Janne Mason, Cams Wharf
“Content delivery was flawless, logical structure and huge amount of information worth millions. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain by coming along. Your success and your future is at stake. Don’t wait a moment longer!” Allison Borland, Gold Coast

We’re always testing new marketing tactics on our various internet businesses. Last week we came up with a real winner! Within just 7 minutes of implementation we were number one on YouTube AND Google for the top keyword phrase in our niche!
(By the way, we’ll be demonstrating what we did in detail at the next Our Internet Secrets workshop. If you haven’t yet booked, here’s the link again:
So what did we do to get to the top of Google so fast? Here are the steps we took:
1. Use the Google Keyword tool to find a relevant four-word phrase in your niche that has several thousand searches per month
2. Create a short video (2-3 minutes) with a call to action to go to the website. We used a great free tool called “Go Animate” to create a video in about 20 minutes.
3. Upload the video to YouTube, using a very specific formula for the title, description, tags, etc (too much to go into here – we’ll show you exactly what we did at the event)
4. View the video in a couple of different browsers
5. “Ping” the page, so Google knows your video exists (again, we’ll demo this at the event)
Result? Within 7 minutes we were at number one on YouTube, above a video of Steve Jobs that had over 16 million views!
The cool thing is, once you’re number one or two on YouTube, you are usually also on the first page of Google for the same phrase! And if you have a link from the video to your website, then it’s a great free-traffic generator.
Now we’re excited to share exactly what we did (plus a bunch of other new marketing tactics!) with the people who join us at the next Our Internet Secrets workshop.
Here are the details and booking link again:
Dates: 22-25 February
Venue: Mantra Legends, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast
And here’s the link to book:
Remember, as a client of ours you qualify for two tickets to this info-packed event (there are still a few seats left):
Andrew and Daryl Grant
PS: We shared the YouTube strategy with a few of our coaching clients last week, and many of them are already having success with it. Here are some comments from those who learned it:
“The Youtube strategy is so simple and so quick! I can see it’s very easy to implement.”
Lisa Howell, Mermaid Waters, Queensland
“The Youtube videos are fast, easy to implement and obviously work!”
Heather Fields, Buderim, Queensland
“Great opportunity to quickly develop a warm list using Youtube videos.”
Peter Doogan, Monbulk, Victoria
“I loved the Youtube strategy. Quick, easy and effective.”
Min Collie-Holmes, Gold Coast Hinterland, Queensland
“Like the Youtube video creation. I can understand the logic behind it.”
Louis Grey, Brisbane, Queensland

Business Builder Competition
Another amazing business builder competition saw 7 fantastic in depth case studies of people excelling by using the internet and implementing the Ultimate Business Model strategies they learned from Andrew and Daryl. Contestants were judged on the best business model and how well they’ve implemented in the time they had. After some extended deliberation by many of our attendees (they all commented on how hard it was to choose just one winner!), the winners Derek and Sally Boyer were crowned as the winning case study. Thank you to everyone that participated in the competition, you inspired all of us. The business builder presentations will be out on our blog shortly so keep visiting back regularly for updates.

See you there!
Posted on 07. Dec, 2012 by Our Internet Secrets.
So you’ve started building a list? Fantastic! That’s the first step to a successful online business. Keep building the list, but you need to start thinking how you can grow, nurture and enhance your relationship with your list. This is the real key to online success.
The relationship with your list is far more important than how many are actually on there! Having 100 responsive people is far more valuable than 10,000 none of which even opens up an email.
So here’s a quickfire list of proven strategies you can implement to build your relationship, so the next time you decide to pitch your product or event, you’ll be speaking to a sizzlingly responsive (and not ice- cold) list!
- Provide lots of good quality free content that adds value to your audience
- Recommend and endorse only things that are good quality and great value
- Survey your list regularly
- We use www.surveymonkey.com
- Ask others to donate free gifts that you can give you list
- Look for people who might want to provide that stuff to your list
- Why would people want to do this?
- Because they want to grow their list
- You’ll be surprised at who will give you free stuff – just because they want to get their brand out there
- Eg., car rental place – was trying to step out from the big players – he asked who was his client – it was someone who was only staying a day in Perth and then driving down south to Margaret River – he asked himself what do they want – then he put together a package based on the suppliers he would find on the route – he said I have people hiring a car and they are coming your way – wine tour, places to eat and stay – do you have anything I could give to them – some said no – some said yes – and he gave a gift pack to people hiring his cars – he stood out from the AVIS and BUDGET.
- You can do this with your list online – you want to be OUTSTANDING IN THE MARKETPLACE
- We do this with our faculty members – we don’t claim to know everything about internet marketing – we want to know who knows the stuff – and they get business from our members
- This adds value to members – it took us a while to find the right people – we had faculty members who didn’t perform and asked them to leave – you need to keep in mind what do your list want – if we bring them in – we need to see how we can give them a win out of the relationship too.
- Ask yourself who you could promote in a particular area that you are not interested in promoting. That will go the other way as well – that will give you access to their list as well.
Ask people in your niche to donate:
- Workshop tickets
- eg., Paul Blackburn – we asked for Mental Toolbox tickets – it is an outstanding workshop – so it is good value
- We fully believe in this program and willing to put our reputation on the line
- How are we going to do this where it works for everyone – he gets more people into his list – and those people will do more stuff with him – everyone wins
- Discount vouchers
- Eg., the Clarksons – they don’t give away tickets to their workshop – they raise money for the Starlight Foundation – it is one of the purposes for their workshop – and you get heavily discounted tickets for a donation which goes to Starlight Foundation
- If you know that you are paying $200 going to charity, you say that’s okay and will go
- Webinar invitations
- Reports, audios, videos, books
- If you get an author who knows what they are doing – they will provide you with a hard copy book to send out to their clients – would this be good?
- If you get a book in the mail with an inscription saying – “Hi John, read this really cool book and I also got you 2 free tickets to a workshop – thanks and regards, Andrew”
- If you can’t come up with the cost of the postage – send an email – I have this great gift if you want to cover the cost of postage
- Free trials
- I have this xxx if you want to trial it for 30 days – check it out for a month – if you like it them you’ll be charged for the next month
- Free samples
- We find that some of the bigger organisations have marketing budgets to give these free samples – JUST ASK
BUILD THE RELATIONSHIP
- Send media mentions, testimonials, case studies of successful clients
- Do case studies – tell the people on your list your client’s success stories
- Invite them to teleseminars or webinars
- Use multiple media (email, hard mail, SMS, text, video, audio, live pre-recorded, Facebook, Twitter, etc)
- Do lots of different ways of contacting them
- Offline has a far greater close rate than online – but it generally has an expense connected to it
- Do a mix of things – do an email, follow up with an SMS (this can be automated), send a video / DVD in the email, or newsletter, then follow up with ads on Facebook
- You can also prep people via different methods – eg. SMS – let them know that something is coming by email
- This gets you a better response
Andrew and Daryl would like to teach you how they personally built a huge list plus made $250,000 in their first 12 months online. They are known for having fantastic relationships with their clients and share their system at their 4 day workshop. The next one is in February from the 22-25th at Surfers Paradise on the gold Coast. If you’d like to learn directly from Andrew and Daryl, secure your tickets here!

October’s workshop has come and gone, with Andrew and Daryl putting on another life changing event. Thank you to everyone who attended the workshop – we hope you enjoyed yourselves but more importantly feel that you are armed with the tools you need to make a change in your business or your life.
– Lots of new faces came along to hear Andrew and Daryl talk about how to make money with ebooks, membership sites and The Ultimate Business Model. As usual, we had lots of interesting questions and Andrew and Daryl didn’t leave until every last one was answered.
– Our business builder competition was again a huge hit, with our audience members judging on who they thought was the winning effort. The standard was extremely high and many people just could not decide on a clear winner. Contestants were judged on how much they inspired the audience, their business model and who took the most action in the time given. We had 2 returning business builders and 5 debuts. Entrants were from all different markets and niches, with the only commomality being that they’ve all been able to take their businesses to the next level through the coaching and tuition of Andrew and Daryl. When all was said and done, it was Derek and Sally Boyer who held up the winners trophy once again. Congratulations on a superb effort guys!
– Our resident experts came along to the party and joined in the fun, with Paul Blackburn enlightening the crowd on how their minds work, Bret Thomson teaching one of the highest paid skills on the planet, Matt and Liz Raad spilling the beans on how to buy and sell a business and Krisztian Panczel giving the nuts and bolts of how SEO done right can significantly boost your positions in the search rankings for your market.
– Our attendees were showered with loads of prizes and gifts throughout the workshop. Customary to our workshops, Andrew and Daryl handed out one of their DVD product sets at the beginning of each session to reward people for coming back and being on time. In total we gave out 12 DVD sets to 12 lucky people. Enjoy! The MAJOR prize draw was drawn on the Monday, and Andrew and Daryl’s huge showbag worth over $20,000 was won by one lucky participant who will now get access to holidays, flights, coaching, products, accomodation and even a full day with Andrew and Daryl! All workshop winners will be announced in a future blog post.
– Thank you to everyone who gave us a glowing testimonial, either written or video. They will all be viewed and Andrew and Daryl will pick the winning testimonial shortly. We will notify you on this blog who won the night at Palazzo Versace so keep checking back for updates!
– The cocktail party was again a smashing success, with more yummy food than our small group could handle plus the Gold Coast’s best night views to behold! We hope you found some great partners to do business with and gave out lots of business cards.
Our Next workshop has already been planned so make sure you pencil in Feb 22nd-25th at Mantra Legends Gold Coast to come along and do it all over again! See you next time!
[Julie Lewin Case Study] How a Cancer Survivor Increased Her Worth 10x & Built A 6 Figure Income Through Her Passion In Celestial Healing
Posted on 12. Oct, 2012 by Our Internet Secrets.
Some of you may know Julie Lewin, who did a fantastic job at our support desk for many years. What you may not know about Julie might shock you. In 2000, Julie was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and could not speak for an entire year.
What would you do if this happened to you?
She made a promise that if she ever got the ability to speak back, she would live her passion and inspire others to live their dreams….
In 2008 Julie attended an OurInternetSecrets event and hasn’t looked back since. She’s inspired thousands with her intuitive healing techniques, spoken as an expert on many stages, has put together a celestial consciousness retreat (which made her $16500 in one week) and now charges $497 session, up from $50 session a few short years ago.
Julie is a shining example of what you can do if you put your mind to it and apply some of the strategies we’ll be teaching at our 4 Day workshop.
You can listen to some of the fantastic results Julie has achieved in the video.
Here are some of the key lessons Julie learned in her journey:
1. Challenge yourself on your mentors. They can help accelerate the process and save you hours of pain and lots of money!
2. How much you are worth? Don’t be tied down to your own pre-conceived ideas. Create massive value and don’t be afraid to charge what you’re worth.
3. If you get a chance, work to learn and soak up as much as you can from people who are succeeding.
4. Believe in yourself and can climb mountains you never thought you could previously climb.
Julie: Who’s learned something today? Who’s still waiting to learn something? This is a real honour. “How to Increase Your Fees 10 times and Build a Six-Figure Income” – that’s what I want to talk to you about in the next 15 to 20 minutes.
It’s taken me a long time to get to this point. That little blue down the bottom there, I only got that yesterday. Nothing like a deadline to make you do something. I finished my PowerPoint presentation an hour ago and Daryl said, “Are you ready?” I said, “Yes.” So, here we go.
Who is Julie Lewin? I haven’t got lots of words for you. I like pictures. They say it speaks a thousand words. I was born in Gympie and I didn’t stay there long. My parents went roaming and we ended up in Mt. Isa. Do you see that stack there, the big one? That is half a kilometre high and I’ve got a story about that that I’ll tell you later.
I’m married to the amazing Frank and some of you may have met Frank. He’s quite a character. We got married 30 years ago in October and yes, we did have two babies. They wouldn’t let me put their pictures up here so I’ve just written “two babies.” We raised our children in Brisbane. These are my children now. We ran away from home two and a half years ago and left them with everything. We started again in the country and we love it.
Oh, there is a little bit of something else about me. I’m a healer and a medical intuitive. That might be a bit woo-hoo for some of you and it was for me when I was told that 28 years ago. What can I say about that? I discovered that I could see inside people’s bodies and locate the root cause of their discomfort. It didn’t happen overnight, but I decided I wanted to have that life, so I practiced every single day for the last 28 years.
Why have I got the Olympics symbols there? I met an Olympian in this room. We actually went to the function on the Saturday night and she started telling me about the Olympian mindset. I thought, “Wow! I have a mindset like that, but I’m not an Olympian.”
Let’s see what an Olympian mindset is. It’s determination, it’s inner strength, you’re hard working and persistent, you’re self-motivated like you light that light in your heart. No one else can do that for you. You can deal with adversity and you have tenacity. When you have those qualities, it means you can pick yourself up off the bathroom floor where you’ve been sobbing, get back into your life, and keep going with whatever it is that you want to do. You’re optimistic and positive and you have the ability to be really focused.
That’s what I’ve done over the last 28 years in a lot of different areas of my life. I practiced for nine years. I got to go on that TV show The Extraordinary where they tested me on film because I rang them up and said, “I can see inside of people’s bodies.”
They said, “Oh yeah, right.” They said, “Have you got anyone who can prove this?”
I said, “Well, my mom.”
They said, “Someone else?”
I said, “What about a doctor, a psychiatrist, and a nurse?”
They said, “Yes.” And so they rang me about six weeks later and said, “We’ll have film crew in town in a couple of days. We want to film you.”
I said, “I don’t think so.”
I said, “I don’t want to be made a mockery of, because what I do is serious.”
They said, “We promise we won’t do that.”
That TV show – no word of a lie – I would’ve filled this room with letters ten times over. My husband went and picked a sack up from the post box every day and it was very overwhelming, and so I decided I wanted to hide.
There’s a reason why I’ve got this here. Responding to all of those people, I thought that I was obliged to give all of myself to those tens of thousands of people that wanted a piece of me, so I did. There was a consequence. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in May 2000. The day after I had surgery I went to speak to my doctor and I couldn’t speak. I lost my voice for a year and I said to God, “If you let me speak again, live my passion, speak about it here today to inspire people to live their dreams and climb their mountains, I promise I’ll do that.”
We’ll fast forward to 2006. I’ve built my very first website. It was a clunky website, it’s still there, and it was through something called SiteBuilder. I’ve put a lot of my heart and soul into that and I thought I was doing pretty well. But I knew I needed something more.
Fast forward to 2008, Facebook changed my life. I know that sounds a pretty weird thing to say. My best friend from when I was 20 – and we had our babies together when I was 24 and 26 – found me on Facebook, exactly a month before there was one of this events. She got two tickets and she said, “Julie, would you like to come to Sydney with me to that event?” It was the very first Our Internet Secrets event that was like this.
I said, “Oh, I haven’t got any money. But I do have $400 to buy my passport so I can go to Thailand in two months. I’ll use that.” So I did. I spent my passport money and I went to Our Internet Secrets and I just kept saying, “Oh my God, oh my God! This is exactly what I’ve been asking for. God answers my prayers.” I joined Our Internet Secrets.
I’m going to fast forward to February, that’s five months later. You’re going to hear Daryl say something later and it might still hit thunder, but some people really bug her. I was one of them. I was still doing my research five months later. I never went to this event. This is part of the OIS program that they’ll talk to you about later. I was at that event. I didn’t have a topic. I didn’t know what I was going to write about. I was very confused in myself.
I spoke to Andrew and he said, “You need to go and speak to Paul Blackburn,” and I did. No word of a lie, in three minutes he changed my life. By the end of that first day, I had my topic. I went home, did some research on the Internet, and the next day I had a 30-day plan. In 30 days I created a product.
I went into a recording studio and I recorded ten healing mediations for before, during, and after surgery. I wrote an e-book, I outsourced the sales letter, and I had the project manage it because those guys at the recording studio said, “Sure, we’ll have that done in 48 hours,” they didn’t. I had to keep hassling them. Then they said, “Yes, we’ll get the guy to digitally master it. He’ll do that in 24 hours.” He didn’t. I’ve got everything on the 30th day. That was my target that I would submit everything to OIS tech is on the 30th day – and I did.
Thirty days later, I got my website back and I made my first sale overnight. Do you think I was a pretty happy cookie? I was. I’ve made some money from that product, but it’s not my best product and I need to market it more. Actually, here it is. It is actually a real live product. Who wants it? There you go.
Who knows Bret Thomson? He’s a copywriter extraordinaire. He’s an all-around good guy and you’re going to meet him this afternoon. I decided I wanted to be a little Bret Thomson wannabe, so I said, “Bret, are you going to teach this stuff that you do?” and he said, “Yes.” I said, “I want to be your first student.” I was one of his first students. I thought I was going to be Australia’s next best thing to women copywriting. I wasn’t.
I had big dreams in October 2009. I had no money. My clients were paying me $50 a consultation, I had a huge heart. I’ve made this deal with God that if He gave me back my voice that I would help people. I was really willing to learn. Andrew and Daryl provided that environment for me to learn and I’ll tell you what, I ate it, I slept it, I breathed it, and I did everything that they told me to do.
Guess what? I got offered a job with Andrew and Daryl and I became the OIS help desk manager in October 2009. I got trained for a few weeks and then I was on my own. I wrote this email to Daryl. I said, “Dear Daryl, you have the wrong person. I so cannot do this job. You’ll have to find someone else.” I went to press “Enter” and I couldn’t. I did that four times and I said, “Okay, maybe I’m not meant to quit this job,” but I did need some help.
I had a friend who had just become a hypnotherapist and I said, “You need to get here right now. I’m about to quit the best job in my life.” She actually drove over. I still had the emails open on my computer that I couldn’t answer. No word of a lie, she sat on my front veranda with me and did an intervention. Sounds cool. She left, I went back inside, I started answering those emails, and I didn’t stop.
I have had the most extraordinary journey with Andrew and Daryl. I love everything to do with Our Internet Secrets. That’s my favourite part on the website and anyone who’s had a welcome call with me will know that.
Andrew and Daryl – these are my mentors. I absolutely love the mentorship that they’ve given me and it’s transformed my life.
Janet Beckers – she’s one of the OIS Faculty members and you’ll hear a bit more about her. She’s the joint venture queen.
Guess what? I had a recruitment agency from Adelaide Facebook me privately (I didn’t know who they were) and said, “Can we do a joint venture with you? We wanted a joint venture on all of your products.”
I said, “But my website is not finished yet.”
“Oh, as soon as it’s done send it to us and we’ll put it on our website. We’ll market it to our thousands of people.” That just happened last week. Yes, thank you.
Gideon Shalwick – he’s another one of Our Internet Secrets Faculty members. He’s the video blogging expert and what he doesn’t know is not worth knowing.
You’ll see all these people later. They’re all my mentors.
Fast forward to September 2011, I had my first speaking gig with Adam Gibson. I spoke for 90 minutes, closed 50% of the room and made $5,000. I was very excited. I’ve never made that much money in that short a time in my life. In that moment I thought, you know what, I can do anything I want to do. I can make as much money as I want. I just have to put my heart and soul into it and ask for it.
Fast forward to April 2012, Celestial Consciousness Retreat. I didn’t follow Andrew and Daryl’s advice. I didn’t do the middle steps. I just went from the little product to the big product and I charged $3,300 for that. I sold out and I made $16,500 in a week. My next one is in November. I’m pretty excited about that. I went in two years from $50 a session, I now charge $497 a session and I have a monthly target of 20. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I do more, sometimes I do less, but it averages out.
You see that there? I said I wanted to go to the top of that. I’m afraid of heights and to get to the top of that I had to go in a cage that had just bars on it. We went half a kilometre up in the air and then the guy that took me up there said, “Now you have to get on that ladder that goes half a kilometre down and you have to climb another six feet to get right up to the rim up there.” It took him 20 minutes to get me to get on the ladder. Then I climbed and my head hit something. It hit a ceiling. They talk about a glass ceiling, I hit a wooden ceiling.
I said, “I can’t go any further.”
He said, “Sure you can.”
I said, “No, I can’t.”
He said, “That changed things. Well, you have to just come back down and step over that half a kilometre chasm and get back on here. We’ll have to wait for them to send us back down.”
I was stuck on that ladder for 25 minutes like this in my slippery hands. Anyway, he coaxed me back down. I always remember that when I think that I can’t do something. I saved my own life in that stupid thing that I did, but maybe it was one of the best things that I ever did. That was a moment.
I’m very excited to have pulled together my ultimate business model. My first tip is I’ll give away something for free. Oh, I’ve made a mistake. “Seven Steps to Celestial Consciousness.” I just started a meditation circle, it’s live online to anyone in the world and we discuss it afterwards in a special Facebook group. I do a one-day workshop on mastering intuition, because that’s what I’ve developed. I’ve developed my intuition to a really high regard. I’ve created a home study pack. There’s my six-day retreat. I do mentoring. I have my first mentoring client on Monday and she really loves that. Then I’ve got a high end mentoring program. I’m not going into what all of those are. I haven’t got any time.
Who wants to feel the love? Who wants to know how to stop psychic vampires from sucking your energy? I can teach you how to do that. I’ve got four eclasses. I sell them for $97. I’ll give you them for free.
This is my meditation room. This is the PowerPoint slide that comes up when I do the webinar, so everyone knows that I’m sitting in there recording this web meditation. I’ll give you the first one for free.
Vote for me if I have inspired you. Thank you, everyone.
