Our Secret to Success

"The One Tip To Explode Your Sales - Fast!"
Yesterday, as I was running a few errands and picking up some things at Target, I noticed Time magazine's current special issue about Thomas A. Edison, and since I already admire Mr. Edison and have learned so much from reading about his life and work, I grabbed it without even looking at the price.
I read close to 80 pages last night before I started nodding off and had to go to bed, and was amazed at Edison's determination to always get what he was after.
Take the phonograph, for example: In the famous photo shown below of Edison posing with his newly-perfected phonograph, he hadn't slept for 3 days and nights!
No wonder he has bags under his eyes and looks a bit dazed!
Why Edison Was Successful - And How You Can Be Too
Edison became the world's greatest and most famous inventor for one reason, and one reason only: He was always looking for ways to improve things! In many cases, he hadn't even been the original inventor of the product in question, but was able to improve it to such an extent that he got the credit.
If you want to succeed in sales, you need to do the same!
The problem, however, is that very few salespeople look for better ways of doing things.
In fact, I've found the exact opposite to be true: Far too many salespeople are trying to get "something for nothing" and to get more leads and more sales without having to use their brains.
When I was in high school, I had a summer job doing hard labor for the local parks department: Clearing brush, chopping down trees, and the like. Ironically, I considered it the easiest job I've ever had. Sure, it was physically exhausting, but I didn't have to think! And going through the day without having to use my brain was EASY!
Why Most Salespeople Fail
Most salespeople fail for that same reason: They go through each day without using their brains. They look for the easy way out.
Unfortunately, trying to find the easy way almost inevitably leads them to the HARD way - a path that rarely leads to sales success.
Robert Kiyosaki, of Rich Dad fame, in speaking to a group of budding entrepreneurs, said that "having a job is a sign of laziness." In the context of that situation, he was telling the people listening that if they were serious about starting a business, they'd quit their jobs and put their butts out on the line. There is no other way to guarantee success. Likewise, salespeople who go on doing the same activities that aren't working - like cold calling in particular - cannot expect success.
How To Succeed In Sales - Fast!
If you want to succeed in sales, and explode your sales numbers - fast - you'll need to start using your brain and finding ways to improve upon how you're doing things now.
The good news is that this isn't as hard as you think. In fact, once you find that way, sales becomes easy. It becomes a fun game. You will be excited to get up and go to work every day. Your sales manager will fear you, for fear of his own job. Your colleagues will envy you and wonder how you're doing it, and your customers will LOVE you - and send you more and more referral business!
The best news of all is that the path to sales success already exists - you don't have to do the hard work of figuring it out on your own. I've done that for you, and the answers are all laid out in my Never Cold Call Again system. It's five modules full of endless tactics, strategies, and techniques that you can begin using - RIGHT NOW - to flood yourself with endless, hot leads - people who are ready to buy right now.
And since you get to "try it before you buy it" on me for a full 30 days, before even deciding if you want to keep it and pay for it then, or send it back and never pay me a dime, there's no excuse not to have it, so get your copy right now:

Google discontinues free service

Google's announcement to discontinue their free 'Google Apps for Business' service left many businesses looking for a good, free alternative.  This service provided businesses a way to utilize their domain name in conjunction with gmail and all the free services that come with it including the Contact manager within Gmail, the very handy and useful Google Calendar, as well as their amazing collaboration function through Google Drive just to name a few.  In reality, Google has been providing a very robust back office at absolutely no cost to us, until now.

From a business standpoint, many of us wondered and even predicted that someday Google would start charging for their email service.  So we shouldn't be surprised.  Instead, let's look at the value of these services versus the cost that Google is charging.  They are getting $5 per month per account through their paid Google Apps for Business.  That's $60 per year, per email address, so if you have 10 people in your company or organization that want to have their email address, then that would run $600 per year payable to Google.

If you don't mind your email address being, then this service is still a free service.  Google has only done away with Google Apps for Business being free.  So it's just no more free gmail with

There are other ways to utilize your domain name.  A lot of businesses use a web hosting service for their email, allowing them to have for their email addresses then combine that with other free services like free online calendars, etc. We charge an extra $10 per month flat rate for up to 10 email accounts. In comparison to Google's $600 per year, you would only pay $120 per year through us for 10 accounts.  This only includes email though, not the other service included in Google Apps for Business.  In our opinion, Google's $5 per month for all that they offer is a tremendous bargain.

Should you want to try something other than Google, several have suggested that Zoho Calendar is the best option for those who want to share a fully functional online calendar with a group.  It's free and very similar to Google Calendar.  It has some very good options including import/export, sharing with anyone regardless of email address, ability to easily embed on your website, is available on mobile devices and has a nice visual format.

We will continue to monitor and explore more options for our customers.  The good news is that Google is grandfathering in everyone who was already on Google Apps for Business.  This change only affects new customers trying to signup or complete their signup process.  If it wasn't already completed and verified, you're out of luck.
