Free Video Training Series

This FREE training video has nothing for sale. I just show you how to turn your knowledge and experience into products people buy. This video includes…

  • The 7 Levels of Content. Why most people who create Knowledge Products get stuck at Level 5, and how you can become un-duplicatable by moving to levels 6 and 7.
  • The Ultimate Content Outline. This simple outline helps you create any piece of content (email, blog post, video, book, etc) and know exactly what to say.
  • How to know what your “topic” should be. Decide with clarity what topic you are going to focus on.

Spiritual Foundations

Under the new covenant, God promises to do three things:

  • Lead us—“I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts.” (Hebrews 8:10)
  • Work miracles for us—“I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” (Hebrews 8:10)
  • Help us to know Him—“…all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” (Hebrews 8:11)

How do we experience this? By remembering…

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

Hebrews 8:12

Feature Segment:  What I Expect From Social Media Marketing World

Every conference I attend has the potential to yield multiples of whatever I invested to be there. This is especially true of Social Media Marketing World, which is coming up next week. Here's what I expect from any conference I attend, and what I expect specifically from Social Media Marketing World.

5 Things I Expect from Any Conference

  1. A major disruption in my schedule.
  2. The opportunity to reflect, recharge, and refocus.
  3. To learn something new, or learn something old from a new perspective.
  4. To be challenged in some way.
  5. To meet new people, and to reconnect with friends.

5 Things I Expect from Social Media Marketing World

  1. To discover the best social media marketing techniques from the world's top experts. Some are my friends, like Mari Smith,  Michael Hyatt, Amy Porterfield, Michael Stelzner, Joel Comm,  and Cliff Ravenscraft.  Some are mentors that I have never met, but hope to at this conference, such as Jay Baer, Chris Brogan, John Jantsch, and many others.
  2. To be challenged in my thinking about social media marketing, and online business models.
  3. The best networking experience I've ever had.
  4. The opportunity to reflect, recharge, and refocus.
