Worst-case scenario?

Someone asked me the other day, "What's the worst case scenario?" regarding Liberty League. This was someone who was asking what kind of results they could expect from following the training that we give all our associates.

Well, there are two answers to the question. I'll give you the mathematical answer first and the "authentic" answer second.

I told this person, "I have no interest in guaranteeing your results. I don't know you. You might be lazy or uncoachable. So, let's find out what you think is reasonable. If we show you how to generate leads and show you exactly WHAT to say and HOW to say it and WHEN to say it....and those people attend the presentation call you heard......how many people do you think will get started with you?"

This person said, "I'd say that I should be able to make a couple of sales per week."

I said, "Great. Here's what that would look like if you got started and purchased the Beyond Freedom course as part of your startup costs."

Week One: You complete 2 sales. Congratulations, you're an Advisor.
Week Two: You complete 2 sales. Congratulations, you are now completely in profit.
Week Three: You complete 2 sales. Congratulations, you have earned $2,000.
Week Four: You complete 2 sales. Congratulations, you've earned a total of $4,000+ for your first month in the business.

Wild, huh? Where else can a person get started in a home business, work a few hours a day and earn $4k in their first month?

By the way, here's what that would look like in the SECOND month if nothing changed:

Week One: You complete two sales. You're already an Advisor so you make $2,000.
Week Two: You complete two sales. You've already recouped your startup costs so you make $2,000.
Week Three: You complete two sales. You've earned another $2,000.
Week Four: You complete two sales. Another $2,000 in the bank.

So, in the SECOND month....even if you did nothing different and you didn't earn any money from the other aspects of our pay plan......you're now earning $8,000 per month.

In your second month in Liberty League.

Where else can someone generate an annualized $100,000 home-based income within their first 60 days?

So, there you go. That was what this guy called the "worst-case scenario" based on him only doing a couple of sales per week.

But that's not the real answer.

The real answer to the question, "What's the worst-case scenario?" is this: that if you don't get started, your life will probably continue to look like it does right now.

We are where we are because of the decisions we made and the actions we took. What actions and decisions will YOU take today to create the life you deserve?

It's all about choice!

What's Up With The Jealousy?

If you've ever done a search on "Liberty League" on the Internet, you probably have seen ads that say things like "Top Earners are leaving" or "Look at this before considering the League". And I wanted to take a moment to address that issue so you have a clear idea of what's happening.

First of all, I love it. :)

Seriously. When I see that nearly every other direct sales company has reps out there who are spending their dollars on the Liberty League name, it's a clear indication that they believe that we're the top dog in the industry. And we are. But, it also means that everytime they run one of those ads, they're actually increasing the value of our name.

Same thing with my own personal name. I did a search of my own name the other day and see that there are a lot of people who spend a lot of money to bid on my name as a way to advertise their business. This used to aggravate me. But now I find it amusing. When you see someone spending money on my name or Liberty League's name.....well, it's easy to see who the commodity is.

And as for "top earners leaving"? Let's see....I AM a top earner. And I know all the top earners personally. And most of them are having record months in the business. They're not leaving or going anywhere. In fact, I'm trying to remember the last time anyone left LLI who was consistently making $20,000 a month. Maybe I'll think of one but I can't so far.

Besides, use your head. If you were working less than 20 hours a week and earning $50k+ every month.....do YOU really think you'd be looking for a new company to join? Nope.

And here's the funny thing about all this jealous advertising: none of these companies are in competition with Liberty League.

Not one.

As far as I know, none of the major direct sales companies are selling anything remotely like the Beyond Freedom Life Achievement course. Or our Liberty and Summit conferences. They're selling travel vouchers. Or financial curriculums. Or resort memberships. Nothing like what we offer at Liberty League.

But, still, I guess it's a little understandable that they'd be jealous.

Take one company, for instance. (I won't mention their name specifically; just that their name includes a green stone and the name of a travel document. :) ) It's no wonder that they feel a bit threatened by what we do.

They just had their annual conferences last week down in Mexico. The attendance?

70 people.

That's right. That's not a typo. They had a whopping 70 people at their conference.

Compare that to Liberty League's events. Over 11,000 people have attended our events in the last 18 months alone.

And I think that's largely because we really do cultivate a culture of community. And it shows.

So, if you're in another company....relax. It's okay. There's plenty of room for everyone. Just focus on building your own product value, offering people a strong pay plan and do the best you can.

No need to be jealous.

Want A Great Recipe For Failure?

If you actually were to assign some "language" to the way most people think, here's what it would look like. And it's a recipe for failure:
I am fed up with this situation I'm in. I'm serious about making a ton of money. I want to start living the life I deserve. I want to get into my dream home. I want to get out of this job and get home with my family. My kids deserve for me to be there. And I want to finally start earning the kind of money I see other people earning. So, I found this great business where people are really earning multiple six-figure incomes and they really look like they're having fun....

...so I think I'll go talk to all my broke friends about it and ask what they think. Then I think I'll get on the Internet and find a discussion forum and ask those people what they think about it even though I don't know them and I have no idea if they've ever been successful in a home business.
Wow. They were really close there for a moment, weren't they? They had the resolve and they had the decision. And then they made the mistake of listening to people who weren't qualified to advise them.

As crazy as that sounds, that is EXACTLY the kind of process that keeps most people stuck in their lives and frustrated with their situations. They cultivate the belief that making money is "hard" simply because they spend their time polling people who aren't any more successful than they are.

The key to success is simple: make decisions and take actions every day that take you closer to your goals, not further away. And the example above is a guaranteed way to stay stuck and frustrated.

Phil Keoghan, host of "The Amazing Race" To Speak At Liberty Conference 2007


It's official: Phil Keoghan, host of the CBS Emmy-award winning show, The Amazing Race will be one of the speakers at the Liberty Conference in Cancun, Mexico on October 11-13th.

Phil Keoghan is in his 11th season of The Amazing Race and has hosted more than 1,000 shows since the age of 19. His forte' is traveling the world and highlighting examples of people who live life "on purpose" and in empowering others to break through barriers.

Speaking for corporate events is not Phil's normal "gig". I read his book -- NOW: No Opportunity Wasted -- a year ago and contacted him to find out if he ever did any speaking. He's more into TV and expressed a certain "selectiveness" about what kinds of speaking engagements he was willing to be involved in. The producer of live events contacted him with some materials that highlighted who Liberty League is and what kinds of events we host...he heartily agreed to come and speak for us.

It's going to be an "Amazing" event with the host of "The Amazing Race"!

Why MLMers join Liberty League

Multi-level marketing (MLM) is a great industry. I'll be grateful for it simply because it offered me a way to get involved in free enterprise. Of course, it could have just as easily been something that wasn't MLM....but I'll give credit where credit is due: MLM taught me about leverage and passive income. And that's a good thing.

So, why are there so many people who are leaving the traditional "multi-level" pay plans and shifting to the business model offered by Liberty League?

There are several reasons we could explore:
  • the ability to earn larger commissions
  • the distaste that many have for seeing most of their commissions roll up to their uplines every month
  • the mandatory product purchases
  • etc.
But, I believe the #1 factor involved is that people are realizing that the Liberty League pay plan offers people the ability to earn a larger income more quickly.

Consider a $1,000 profit from a single sale in Liberty League.

In a standard MLM pay plan where you might earn $5 for every person ordering products every month in your downline.....it would take you nearly SIXTEEN YEARS to earn $1,000 on that person's product purchases.

Sixteen years! And anyone who's been involved in MLM for any length of time knows that -- not only do customers last that long -- the company itself may not survive that long!

Many marketers have begun to realize that it takes no more time, effort or energy to earn a $1,000 profit as it does to enroll someone into an MLM and earn $20.

So, if you're going to work a business for 15-20 hours a week, it only makes sense to work one that's going to pay you what you're worth.

It all boils down to one question: what is your time worth?

In "The Age of Speed", author Vince Poscente reveals an interesting fact. Check this out:

==> Since 1955, the average American's income (after inflation) has tripled...but the life expectancy is only ten years longer.

In other words, you have THREE times as many options today as you did 50 years ago....but the time you have to enjoy them (your lifespan) is not much longer.

A simple analogy would be to picture two children at a state fair. One has $5 and the other has $20...but they both only have one hour to spend it.

The child with $5 can make a simple choice: do I want to ride the Ferris Wheel or would I rather buy some cotton candy? He can pretty much do one or the other and has plenty of time to do it.

The child with $20 has a more difficult choice: she wants some cotton candy, a turkey leg, a ride on the Ferris Wheel and a ride on the bumper cars. She's can afford it all but only has time for some of them. She can't spend too much time on one thing or she will have to give up something else she wants. A long line at the cotton candy booth might mean she can't ride the Ferris Wheel.

So, in order to do everything she wants, she has to find a way to speed up. Her need for speed is greater than the first child's.

Here's the point:

The average person today is becoming more and more aware of all the luxury and comfort that is available in a lifetime. When you're in a business where you can create your own income, you have more options.

We want to do big things. Meaningful things. Everything we dream of.

We want to learn another language.
We want to see the Pyramids.
We want to live in the Caribbean for a month.
We want to have time with family.
We want to run a marathon.
We want to go snowboarding in Whistler.
We want to write a book.
We want to give back to the community.

And how much time do we have to do it all? Eighty years? Fifty? Thirty? How much longer do you have? The clock is ticking. And you still haven't rode the Ferris Wheel.

To do all the things that we want to do, we need speed. Because, these things require freedom...and freedom requires money. And the faster you can earn the money, the faster you can start living the freedom you want.

More and more marketers are figuring this out. MLM is a great way for someone to become a hundredaire or a thousandaire.

But, if you want to create a multiple six-figure income and get that done in the next 6-12 months....well, then Liberty League is one of the few ways to create that.

And it doesn't take any more time or effort than enrolling someone into a multi-level deal to earn $5 a month on someone's order.

The life you want also wants you. It's waiting. When you get started is going to be up to you. If you want to do it sooner than later, you need speed.

Las Vegas -- Liberty League style!


We just got back from the annual "Super Saturday" one-day training event for Liberty League International.

(That's me onstage to the left) -- we had a completely sold-out event and the overall response has been incredible.

Jessica and I (and the boys) decided to go to Vegas early and enjoy the city before kicking off the event on Saturday. We had a blast and the kids enjoyed all the fun things to do in Vegas: the aquarium at Mandalay Bay, the lion exhibits at MGM Grand, Caesar's Palace, .....it was a blast.

The Super Saturday is a training event that we do once per year...and it features both outside speakers AND the top income earners in the company.

It's an opportunity for anyone -- new or experienced -- to find out first-hand what the top leaders in the company are doing to create multiple six- and seven-figure incomes by working from home with the Liberty League business opportunity.

It's an exciting event and it's got me already in the mood for the next event which is just around the corner: the 2007 Liberty Conference which is just a few weeks away in October.

If you'd like to see highlights of the event from our perspective, click the play button below!




And if you'd like to find out EXACTLY how simple it is to earn $15,000 in a single month in Liberty League, give me a call at 334-655-8194. I did it and I can show you how, too!

How To Earn A Simple Six-Figure Income

Liberty League has a ton of different ways to make money. About 7 different ways last time I counted....and I'm sure I might have missed one or two.

But, when I was looking at Liberty League for myself....I've gotta be honest. I knew that there was a lot of different ways to make money. But the thing that I saw most clearly was that the primary income stream would create a six-figure income EASILY for anyone who was willing to follow the system we teach.

So, here you go: this is about as simple as I can explain to someone how to earn a six-figure income in Liberty League International.

Adjust your speakers and click the play button below to listen to this simple explanation:





Like what you hear? Call me on my cellphone at 334-655-8194 and let's talk about how you can start creating these results THIS WEEK. It's all about choice.

Back from Sydney, Australia!


We're back from the 2007 Summit Conference in Sydney, Australia and it was absolutely phenomenal! (I'll post a few pics below but if you want to see a ton of other pics, visit our Australian Photo Blog here.

I often wonder how it's possible that Liberty League can continue to raise the bar again and again no matter how many conferences we attend....but they do. And this one was no exception.

We kicked off the first general session with Bob Proctor whom many millions know from the movie "The Secret". Bob is one of the most notable teachers in the world on how to create powerful results in record time. He spent a tremendous amount of time assisting our attendees in discovering exactly how to "live with intent".

We also had the best-selling author of The Intention Experiment, Lynn McTaggart. Lynn has become a worldwide clearing-house for hundreds of independent scientists who are using science to discover exactly how our own thoughts impact the physical world. Her talk (as well as her book) is focused on how you can direct the creative power of thought to create results in any area of life. (Pretty handy for people who want to live their life "on purpose"!)

On the third day of the conference, Matt Brady facilitated one of the most powerful experiences one can participate in: walking on fiery coals. After a two-hour talk about the power of the human spirit and breaking through limiting beliefs.....hundreds of people did the impossible: they walked barefoot across beds of coals burning at 1200 degrees Farenheit. It was an amazing experience.

Add to all that...many of us attended "The Barber of Seville" at one of the most famous buildings in the world: the Sydney Opera House. I climbed the Sydney Harbor Bridge (which you can see photos of here.

We ate in incredible 5-star restaurants like ARIA (where Jessica and I dined before attending the Opera). And many of our friends went to Minus5 -- a lounge where everything is made of ice: the walls, the floor, the bar, the stools...everything.

And the hotel? Magnificent. We stayed at the Sydney Intercontinental, barely a stone's throw from the Opera House and the Bridge. The service was spectacular and the suites were incredible. Our concierge was a miracle-worker; anytime we required anything, he was able to pull off the impossible (including, as it turns out, finding soy-based baby formula in a city where it's just not very available!)

Someone said, "Hey, I could get used to living like this"....but here's the thing: they ARE living like this! This is the life that is available to anyone -- ANYONE -- who is willing to work a few hours a week with a proven system and being willing to not settle for anything less than luxury.

And THAT is the life that you deserve.

Do you believe that you're capable of living this kind of lifestyle?
If so....what's stopping you? Because whatever is keeping you from saying "yes" to the life you deserve is what's running your life right now.

Success is a decision. Decide now. Find out how Liberty League can change your life in a dramatic way.

Getting Ready To Kick Off the 2007 Summit Conference

Jessica, Easton and I just arrived in Sydney, Australia this morning to kick off the all-new Summit Conference.

Well, I say "morning"...but with the radical time change, my body isn't quite sure what time it is.

At this moment I'm writing this from my hotel suite at the Intercontinental Hotel at 6:32pm but my body thinks that it's 3:32 in the morning and is wondering "What the heck are you doing up?"

But, a bit of sleepiness aside -- Sydney is a marvelous place. We spent the day getting settled into our suite -- (great views of both the opera house and the Sydney Harbor bridge( -- and then we walked down to the harbor, did a little shopping, had some fish and chips while browsing the shops and came back to the hotel for Easton to take a nap.

We've got several days before the official event starts. This year's event will feature Bob Proctor from the movie "The Secret", Lynn McTaggart, author of "The Intention Experiment" and a firewalk right out in the Australian Outback. It's going to be an amazing experience for a sold-out crowd.

If you'd like to keep up with our day-to-day activities, visit our Australia trip site by clicking here.

"But...is there a residual income?"

I was talking to a fellow the other day who's looking for a home business. He was working in retail but he didn't care for the work and wasn't earning much money. He worked at one of the larger department stores in a mall.

As it turns out, he'd heard of Liberty League and had attended a presentation call about a year earlier but never got started. I told him that I had no conversation for him on why he should look again....but that, simply, if he was interested in "getting out of what he's into" that this has certainly been a good financial choice for me. (A massive understatement, to say the least.)

And here was his response. "Well, I liked the idea when I looked at it a year ago. But, I guess I just didn't see the residual. Is there a residual income in Liberty League?" I told him there was and that he could certainly get a fresh perspective by attending another presentation call which he did.

But, here are two things that come to mind for me on this topic.

Firstly, here's a guy who is so completely brainwashed about "residual income" that he's made it his main focus for saying 'yes' or 'no'. Did you notice that? He knew that Liberty League was a business where he could make a six-figure income....but he didn't get started because "he didn't see the residual".

Now,....I'm not the smartest person in the world. But, I'm not sure how that makes sense. He'd rather work in a job he hated, earning less than $40,000 a year.....than to earn six-figures in a business because he thinks that there is no residual?

This brings me to my second point.

His question about the residual is a smokescreen. It wasn't real. It was simply the first excuse he found that would give him permission to stay in his comfort zone and not change his life. By finding an excuse that would let him NOT get started....he gets to stay in his box...not make any dramatic changes...and doesn't have to take responsibility for doing something that is different from the masses.

He gets to be "safe". Average. Ordinary. Like everyone else. And the excuse he chose to justify that decision was that he didn't think that Liberty League had a residual aspect. He might as well have complained that he didn't think the packaging of the product looked good.

You see, residual income IS important. It's what allows you to get paid over and over for work that you've done once. And in Liberty League, we earn ongoing, residual profits of $1,000, $1,500 and more.

Additionally, we earn also have the ability to earn more passive income in ONE WEEK than many people in MLM will earn in, say, a year. (I recently had a $19,000 week. Only $1,000 of it had anything to do with my own, personal effort.)

So, is residual income important? Absolutely! But is it the most important factor when selecting a way to create wealth from home? Not to me.

I love the residual income that Liberty League provides. But, if you'll ask me if I like the residuals better than the ability to earn a multiple six-figure income in my first 6-12 months, then I'd say 'no'.

Fortunately, we don't have to choose. Liberty League has both. And when my friend figures out that it's possible for him to earn a great income now AND build a residual income for down the road....then he might finally be willing to get outside his comfort zone and stop living small just to satisfy the people around him.

For more details on Liberty League's pay plan and the passive/residual aspects...call me at 205-267-1033 and I'll be happy to get you some details.

The Number or, "How To Know What You're Worth"

Want to know what you're worth from a financial standpoint? Really. Do you?

It's very simple.

Grab a pencil. And some paper.

And on that piece of paper, write down how much money you want to earn this year.

Go ahead. I'll be here when you get finished.

Got it? Great.

Look at that number. That number -- to the penny -- represents EXACTLY what you believe you're worth. Not a penny more and not a penny less.

Now, someone might argue, "Tony, that's not what I'm worth. I'm worth a lot more than that. That's just the number that I think is realistic based on what I do and what I can reasonably expect in the next 12 months."

And your way of thinking is valid to an extent. But, here's what many people don't understand: it's actually that way of thinking that is creating your present results.

In other words, until you are willing to see yourself as earning, say, a multiple six-figure income....then you won't be able to see the opportunities that will allow you to achieve that.

I'll give you an example. Today I spoke with a gentleman who was looking to start a business that he said would pay him about $150 a day . So, when I told him that he views himself as worth $150 a day....he was offended. It made him uncomfortable.

But it's still true. This person is capable of earning thousands of dollars a day. I can see that. But he can't see that of himself. And until he does....then the most he will be able to earn is $150 a day.

On the other hand, if he could adopt the Million Dollar Mindset that this blog is devoted to....then he could very easily start creating opportunities that would pay him far more. But until then....God Himself cannot give him more than he's willing to accept.

Incidentally, I regularly partner with individuals and partners to show them how to create a multiple six-figure income in 6-12 months. But, I'm very selective about who I work with.

So, when this gentleman told me that he wanted only $150 a day...he disqualified himself. He knows better than I what he's worth. He sees himself as worth $55,000 a year. And I want to work with people who see themselves worth a minimum of three times that. So, without even realizing it, his mindset cost him $100,000 today.

And let me be clear: this is not a judgment of someone being good, bad, right or wrong. There are plenty of wonderful husbands, fathers, mothers, wives, sons, daughters, etc. who are wonderful people. And they are wonderful people no matter what their financial thermostat is set for.

But in terms of MONEY....their sense of self-worth is tied directly to what they are willing to settle for. And until they are willing to raise the bar for what they will settle for....then they will only get what they believe they're worth.

Bottom line: if a person with a $50,000 mindset takes an opportunity that will pay $1,000,000......that person will take that million-dollar opportunity and go make $50,000 with it. They will literally leave $950,000 on the table simply because they cannot accept it mentally. And until they accept it mentally, they cannot accept it in reality.

But here's the best part: whatever number you've got on your paper right now, you can change it. You can erase it or scratch it out and raise your bar right now....by simply choosing to see yourself as worth what you really deserve.

Questions to consider:

What number is on your paper right now?
What do you really see yourself worth?
What are you willing to settle for?
What would it take for you to see yourself worth ten times more?

Life is a choice -- choose well.

The Box, or "Why You're Not Already Wealthy"


Everyone lives in a box. Your perception of "how things are" is your box.

Own a house? It's in your box. Got kids? They're in your box. Earning $43,565 at a job you don't like? That job is in the box. So is the $43,565.

Here's what else: if you believe you have to work hard to be successful...that hard work is in your box, too. If you think that you're not wealthy because of your lack of education...that lack of wealth is in the box. Along with your lack of a college degree.

It's all in there. Everything you have and accept as "how things are" is in the box.

Now, here's what's also true...

Everything you want from life that you don't already have...is outside your box. And the "odds" -- in terms of the percentage of people who make the choice -- the "odds" are that you will never get to have what you want simply because your wants aren't powerful enough to overcome your insecurity of being outside the box.

Get that. Because that's the only thing keeping you from getting what you want: the insecurity, the fear or the anxiety of doing the things that will bring those goals INTO your box. Thus, success is simply a choice.

So, why aren't you wealthy already? Simple: because you haven't chosen to BE that person. You're busy staying in your box.

In fact, maybe you've decided not to be wealthy. You might think, "Tony who would decide not to be wealthy?" Well, you probably didn't say "I've decided not to be wealthy"....but if you're not wealthy it's because you have made the choices that do NOT lead to wealth. And it's really the same thing.

You are where you are because -- either through action or inaction -- this is really where you wanted to be.

In fact, some of you are reading this right now and you're appalled that someone should say such a thing. That someone would suggest that your "not being wealthy" has been a choice on your part.

You might even have a lot of "monkey chatter" going in your head right now listing all the perfectly good reasons why not being wealthy is not your choosing.

And here's the catch: the reasons you give yourself for why you're not rich is the stand that you've taken against becoming wealthy. If you are not wealthy, you will be defending your decision to remain in your current state EVEN AS YOU READ THIS. If you don't believe it...stop right now and listen to your mind chatter.

Fortunately, the solution is quite simple. Understand that you cannot get to where you want to go with the same quality of thinking that created your present situation. Change your thinking and decisions and you change your life.

Make your box bigger. Wonderful things are waiting.

A common symptom of herd-mentality...

I talked to a network marketer the other day who actually made the comment that they weren't ready to go fulltime yet because "their employer offered such great benefits".

I actually laughed out loud. He didn't ask why and I didn't offer to explain.

But that was actually quite funny to me. Here's someone who -- by his own admission -- is actually staying at a job he doesn't like . . . working hours he hates . . . . and earning an income that is barely enough to live indoors . . .

...and yet he's willing to continue to sell 1/2 of his waking hours to his employer because they offer "such great benefits".

So, I had to ask. What are these "great benefits" that was so attractive that he was willing to sell his birthright for a bowl of company porridge?

Two weeks vacation annually.
A 401k program which the company will match his investment only up to $2k per year.
And normal group insurance that still costs him $75 per week out of his paycheck.

Let me put this into perspective: as a Summit Advisor with Liberty League International, I took a total of SEVEN vacation weeks last year. Not to mention that I rarely work more than 25 hours a week in the first place.

The idea that his employer is pitching in $2k per YEAR (yes, that's per YEAR) is a drop in the bucket to the amount I've been able to invest from my Liberty League Income in the last 30 days.

And insurance? Well, put it this way: when you reach the point where you're earning a strong five-figure income every month (or every week!)....well, you can pay for your own insurance. I pay for our BCBS health insurance premiums out of my pocket and they're ridiculously affordable, even if you compare them to group rates.

So, yeah. I laughed.

Because here's my idea of "great benefits":

Waking up every morning with no alarm clock.
Being able to earn money from anywhere in the world with a cellphone and a laptop.
The fact that my kids aren't being raised by $8/hour daycare workers.
That my 10mo old baby already has more stamps in his passport than I had when I was 27.
That my son celebrated his 9th birthday in Cancun. My oldest will celebrate his birthday this year in a private box at a Braves game. And my youngest will celebrate his 1st birthday this year in Sydney, Australia.

Those are great benefits.

If you don't have them, you deserve to get them. But your employer doesn't offer them. Find out how you can live this kind of lifestyle starting NOW.

Employment is great for some people. But, not for you. Not if you're still reading this entry. Because the fact that you're still reading this is the best evidence that you KNOW you deserve a better life than you're getting from being another rat in the rat race.

Find out how to create wealth from home in just 20 hours a week. I did. I'll show you how.

There are two kinds of people in the world....

Broadly speaking, there are two kinds of people in the world: leaders and followers. Decide at the beginning whether you intend to be a leader or remain a follower. The difference in income is vast.

The follower cannot reasonably expect the compensation which a leader is entitlted to...although may followers make the mistake of expecting such pay.

And it's no disgrace to be a follower. On the other hand, remaining a follower isn't a credit, either. Most great leaders began in the capacity as a follower. They become great leaders because they were intelligent followers.

With few exceptions, the person who cannot follow a leader cannot BECOME an efficient leader. The person who can follow a leader most efficiently is usually the person who develops their leadership abilities faster.

So...which group are you in? Which group are you committed to staying in?

Want more "Law of Attraction"?

If you haven't heard of Michael Losier, yet....you will. His book "The Law of Attraction" is the #6 best-selling book on Amazon.com.

He's going to be speaking at the next Liberty Conference coming up in Cancun, Mexico in March of 2006. If you haven't had a chance to experience Michael, enjoy the video below of him speaking at one of his workshops.



It's just a tiny, diluted taste of the power of the kind of information we share at a Liberty Conference.

How would you like to be here?

How would you like to hang out here for a week?

You can.

The picture to the left (click to see a larger version) is a satellite photo of the location of the 2007 Summit Conference for Liberty League International. We'll be staying at the Sydney Intercontinental, just a stone's throw from one of the most famous buildings in the world....the Sydney Opera House.

Also, I just learned this past week that Bob Proctor of Life Success Productions and the movie The Secret is a confirmed speaker at this event. An opportunity to spend a week up-close and personal with Bob Proctor....it's exciting stuff.

Also, it's my son Easton's first birthday on June 26th as well. Imagine being able to look back and see pictures of your first birthday party in Sydney, Australia with a couple thousand people and Bob Proctor at your party. What a life.

Find out more about the Summit Conference. It'll be here before you know it!

This video is great

Watch the reactions of the people in this video to what the guy is doing. The look on their faces are full of happiness, joy and support! But you know what they're thinking...they WISH they had the power to do what this guy is doing!

And here's the kicker....they do...

They just aren't willing to act on it...

Enjoy the video and the laugh!

The Great Equalizer

The 24 Hour Day is the Great Equalizer. Everyone gets the same 24-hours. It's what you're DOING with your 24 hours that determines whether you get rich...or whether you get broke.

So, if you're trading time for dollars....well, there's always a limit on how much money you can earn. For instance, if a lawyer bills $200 an hour, a lot of people think that's great. But, the problem is he actually has to SHOW UP to bill those hours. So, the more money he wants...the more time he has to spend NOT doing the things that he wants the money for.

Or take someone who works for a salary. I know lots of people who probably think that it would be a dream-come-true to get a $100,000 salary and a key to the executive washroom. A fancy desk to sit behind. And a business card with a title.

But the people who DO live that life tell me that the rewards are far less than the stress. They're working 50-60 hours a week, they're having to play office politics and they're constantly aware that a corporate downsizing or lay-offs could put their lives into a tailspin.

One such executive told me, "I'm like a rat on a treadmill and I'm running hard to get to a place I don't even want to go."

So, what's the solution?

For me, it was getting into a business where I could LEVERAGE my time.

What's leverage? Here's an example: Archimedes once said that if you gave him a stick long enough and a place to stand...he could move the world. Because when you use a stick to lift something...you can pick up far more than you could without the stick.

That stick gives you LEVERAGE.

And it's the same way with making money. So, with Liberty League, instead of having to do all the work yourself...you've got multiple products, an organization of people who are helping you build your army....and you can earn far more money in a day than you could by yourself.

That's leverage.

At the moment of this writing, I've earned more money today than the average American will earn in the next 6 weeks working at a job they hate.

That's leverage. And that's how you can INCREASE your earnings...and yet work LESS than people who are trying to trade their time for dollars.

I'll say it again: the 24-hour day is the great equalizer. Everyone gets the same amount of time. It's what you DO with that time that determines whether you get rich or whether you get broke.

Are you getting rich? Or are you getting broke?

How are you spending YOUR time?

The Astronaut Farmer


I was looking through some movie trailers today and found one called "The Astronaut Farmer".

The Astronaut Farmer?? What the heck is that?

Turns out it's a new film from Billy Bob Thornton. And it looks pretty empowering. It's about a guy in Texas who has dreamed of going to space so badly that he finally decides to do something about it.

He builds a rocket. And despite threats from NASA, the government and everyone in between...he's made the decision to live his dream.

The movie isn't out yet but the language in the trailer is POWERFUL. Adjust your speakers and listen to this 30-second clip:




If you're not where you can listen right now, here's the quote:
Somewhere along the line, we stopped believing that we could do anything. You'd better know what you want to do. Before someone knows it for you.

Man, that's powerful. Most people go through their entire lives with no plan of their own. They're just fitting into someone else's plan. An employer. A supervisor. A boss.

And guess what they've got planned for you?

Not much.

And that's why you've got so many people driving what they don't want to drive, living where they don't want to live and doing what they don't want to do.

Have you figured out what YOU want in life? Are you doing anything about it? Or are you just going along with someone else's plan?

Here's the truth: you're either living your dreams or you're working for someone who's living theirs.

Liberty League: Is It Easy?

What a provocative question when asking about how to create wealth from home...

..."is it easy"?

There are a number of answers to that question. But, I'll give you the simplest one: for compliance reasons I cannot tell you that making a fortune in Liberty League is "easy". But, I can tell you that, for the life of me, I cannot see anything about this business that is difficult.

What's hard?

1. I run the ads that the company gives me and I promote the websites they provide.
2. Once a day, I call the people back who have responded and who are waiting for my call.
3. I weed out the tire-kickers with a 4-minute conversation and invite them to attend a presentation call.
4. I call them back and collect a decision. No convincing, no persuading. Heck, someone else actually answers all their questions for me!

I look at that list...and I look at how I spend my day and I just can't find anything difficult about it.

And to that, someone might say, "Well, if it's so easy...why isn't everyone doing it?"

It's a fair question. The only answer I can think of is that many people are so entrenched in their own fear of failure that they can't let themselves take action that might actually create the life they claim to want. So, they stay "stuck in their ruts" and are never willing to actually DO the things that create wealth and success in a home business.

It's all about choice.

Don't be boring in 2007

It's a New Year and another chance to do something amazing with your life.

Read that again. Got it?

2006 is dead. It's history. And unless you're doing something different than you did in 2006...well, 2007 is going to be about the same.

And here's the problem...most people aren't asking the right questions.

I'll give you an example...

Jessica and I just got back from Hawaii. I'm tall enough, vain enough and wealthy enough to pay an extra $3,000 to fly first-class. So, we were eating real food on real plates with real glasses.

The folks riding in coach were on a "buy your food" plan.

Now, the questions they were being asked were: do you want to buy a bag of chips, trail mix, a bag of M&Ms or what looked like a quarter-pound Snickerdoodle sugar cookie?

This is an example of someone being asked the WRONG question. Do you know what happens to people who eat M&Ms for breakfast? Nothing good.

Here's a clue: there's never a right answer to a wrong question.

So, what question should YOU be asking in 2007?

In my opinion, these are all WRONG questions:

-- how can I get promoted at my job?
-- how can I figure out how to save money on childcare?
-- how can I get an extra weekend off?
-- will I get a vacation this year?
-- how can I get more overtime?

Those are stupid questions, in fact. Here are the correct questions:

-- how can I quit my job and make more than my boss?
-- how can I raise my own children instead of paying a 7-dollar=an=hour stranger to do it?
-- how can I have all the free time I want?
-- how many vacations do I want to take this year?
(We took six this past year)
-- how can I never work more than 25 hours a week?

That's what you should be asking. The other questions are for The Herd.

It's 2007 and a new adventure is beckoning you. It's calling you by name. This is your chance to start a new direction in your life or to stay in the same situation you've been in for ages.

I gotta tell you...I KNOW what the next 12 months look like for me and I am JAZZED. It's totally different than what the average people will experience. And it's all a CHOICE.

Think about what most people are spending their time worrying about:

- Their neighbors leaves blew in their yard.
- Their substitute mailman runs a half-hour later than the usual guy.
- Whether they tipped the pizza guy $2 too much.
- Whether or not the dry-cleaner broke a button on a blouse.
- The cashier didn't ring up the "double coupon" on the can of pinto beans.

These people are driving what they don't want to drive, living where they don't want to live and doing what they don't want to do.

Their biggest plan for the weekend is to load up on videos from Netflix or Blockbuster so they can spend all weekend watching TV in a coma and eating Fritos, Cheetos and Doritoes.

Sheesh.

Somebody give me a break.

You don't have time for that crap. Your life is too short.

Wouldn't you rather be thinking about how to make an extra $10,000 a month? Or whether or not your spouse would like the Cartier watch or the Rolex? (Mine bought me the Rolex Daytona....$8k)

So, here's the deal.....

If you want something different, you're going to have to get out of your comfort zone and actually DO something different.

So, to get you started, here are some things you in 2007:

-- Unplug your TV for a month.
-- Get your head into some good personal development.
-- Watch the movie The Secret at least twice a month.
-- Start a business.
-- Get rich.
-- Rescue a pet from the Humane Society.
-- Forgive somebody.
-- Heck, forgive EVERYBODY. Most of all yourself.

You are a powerful, beautiful, wonderful human being who has the ability to create whatever results you want in your life.

And don't let anyone tell you any differently.


But, your quality of life depends on you and what you're going to do with your days.

Read this whole article again.

Save it.

Print it.

Pass it on to someone else.

But, for God's sake....get off your butt and actually go DO something with the life God gave you.

And if you want to work with me and find out how simple it really is to get rich working at home...then give me a ring. I'll give you the details.

But, whatever you do...do SOMETHING.

Your life is calling you. Will you answer?

You know you're doing something right....


You know you're doing something right when you look on the back of the latest issue of The Robb Report magazine and find an ad for a location where you've already been.

This picture is on the back of the January issue of The Robb Report. I took the same picture when I visited St. Thomas myself.

To get to the top of this mountain, you have to take a cable-car from the marina up about 15 minutes. As you can see, the view is amazing. St. Maarten is close by and is just as luxurious.

You know, Liberty League has allowed me to visit a ton of places I would never have visited otherwise. In the last two years, we've been to Cancun, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Whistler, British Columbia....the list goes on and on. We're going to Australia next -- it's going to be a blast.

Heck, my kids have more stamps in their passports than most grown people. How cool is that?

You should come along. It's just a choice. Get started and watch how much your life changes. Maybe you'll pick up a Robb Report sometime and find a picture of your favorite vacation spot...

Joining Liberty League makes you thin?

Okay, Americans are fat. No doubt about it. Over the years, many people have speculated why.

Some have suggested that the food pyramid is screwed up. Others have accused fast food restaurants citing the typical amount of trans fat in an order of French fries. Still others have blamed thyroid problems, psychological disabilities, and low self esteem.

And while I’m sure that some of these theories do play a part in the rising obesity epidemic, they carefully ignore the main reason.

See if you can make the connection:

A. 61% of Americans are overweight and a whopping 27% are clinically obese.
B. The average American brings home less than $2,200 per month in net income.

Am I the only one who sees the connection? Americans are fat because they're broke. People struggle with their weight because they don't have enough money to stay thin.

And you can prove this to yourself. If you've got $5 in your pocket, you don't have enough money to buy a piece of grilled salmon with a side order of steamed asparagus. But you've got enough to buy a Super-Sized Quarter Pounder meal, don't you?

You can buy a Snickers bar for $.50. But I've never seen a fruit cup for under $3.

Here's another example: go to the grocery store and buy all the stuff you need to make a great salad at home. You're probably going to spend around $30 and the stuff will stay fresh in your fridge for a few days. On the other hand, you could spend the same $30 on macaroni & cheese, Ramen noodles, hamburger helper and Tombstone pizzas and you can buy enough food for a month.

Get clear on this: Hollywood superstars and multi-millionaires aren't wearing size 0 dresses or size 32/34 pants because they have more willpower than you. They're trim and fit because they can afford to hire a personal trainer, someone to cook nutritious meals and spend as much time as they need to working out.

Now, obviously I'm not saying that making a ton of money is going to automatically make you the next Daniel Craig. But, I AM saying that making a ton of money gives you the ability and freedom to take better care of the most important commodity you have: your body.

Being healthy is an investment. And it's not an investment that the average person can make when they're squeaking by from paycheck to paycheck.

And this is why it is VITAL that you get involved in a business where you can have A.) Plenty of money and B.) Plenty of free time.

And Liberty League International is an environment where you can do this. With profits of $1,000 to $8,000 and more and a business plan that involves working only 15-20 hours a week....it's an ideal career for someone who wants to improve EVERY area of their life.

Including your health.

It's 2007. Don't keep killing yourself with your fork. Make some money and get healthy.
