Want To Get Behind-The-Scenes?

Pssst.....

Want to get behind-the-scenes?

Want to see what being in Liberty League is REALLY like before getting started?

Want to see things with your own two eyes?

Would you like to attend a private function ONLY for Liberty League associates....for FREE?

Liberty League International is hosting a one-day event in Los Angeles, California on January 10th at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

THIS IS NOT A BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY MEETING.

This is our annual Kick Off event for associates only. It's a one-day business training for our associates so they can create HUGE results in January and in 2009.

This is not an event designed for the general public. It's normally for associates only. We'll be doing training on:
  • how to have hundreds of people contacting you and asking you for information on your business
  • how to create massive duplication so that you're pocketing multiple $1,000 profits daily
  • how to create "cash on demand" by following a simple 3-step system
  • the real "Nina Master" tips and tricks for creating incomes of $50,000 per month and up
  • and much more.
You'll also have the opportunity to personally meet the founders of the company and find out what life is REALLY like in Liberty League International.

Let me be clear: at this event, you will have a personal chance to mastermind one-on-one with people who are earning tens-of-thousands of dollars per WEEK from home. If I hosted a generic "internet marketing" seminar with these people, the cost to attend would be over $10k per person. These are the top earners in the industry.

NOTE: THIS IS A PRIVATE FUNCTION AND ONLY TICKETED MEMBERS CAN ATTEND. Tickets cost $189.

But I've got your ticket.

Seriously. I'll pay your way in.

Why? Because I'm so confident in what you'll see "behind the scenes" that I'm willing to pay the cost of your $189 ticket so you can see Liberty League for yourself.


All the risk is on me. There are no strings attached.

And as an added bonus, you'll get a FREE private mastermind with me on "How I Earned $15,000 In Personal Net Profit In My First 30 Days".
  • How I marketed.
  • Where I ran my ads.
  • The exact ads I ran.
  • How I converted leads to sales.
  • And much more.
So....there's the offer. Are you REALLY serious about Liberty League?

Serious enough to meet me in Los Angeles on January 10th?

Contact me on the details below and I'll be happy to speak with you personally to get your registered for this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Liberty League Associate of the Month

Liberty League International's Associate of the Month for September 2008 is my buddy Gene Braxton. I hope you enjoy this peek into Gene's life. He's been a huge impact on my life and business. He and I have toasted our successes all over the world from the Caribbean to Sydney to Rome Italy.

If Gene were "guest-blogging" with me, I think he'd be the first to tell you....his accomplishments are achievable by anyone who is willing to follow a simple system. He might also add, "you haven't seen anything yet!"

Congratulations Gene Braxton on being Liberty League International's Associate of the Month!

Who's The Commodity?

I always think it's interesting that -- if you do a search on the words "Liberty League" or "Liberty League International" -- you seem to find a lot of people who think they're in competition with Liberty League who are spending some SERIOUS money to try to catch your attention.

And I suppose that's to be expected. Some people really don't get that part of "prosperity consciousness" is just to understand that there is an unlimited amount of pie. That is, you don't have to keep someone else from getting a piece in order for you to get a piece.

Still, I guess it's easier for some people to claim that belief than to actually live by it.

So, they go to Google or Yahoo and spend thousands and thousands of dollars on OUR name....in order to try to route traffic to their business.

But this all begs the question: who's the commodity in this scenario?

If someone chooses to spend thousands of dollars a month to bid on search terms like "Liberty League"....it seems to me that they're affirming what we already know:
  • Liberty League is making huge strides in the industry.

  • Liberty League is experiencing near-vertical growth.

  • We have people in Liberty League who have earned more than $700,000 in their FIRST YEAR in the business

  • Liberty League has active associates -- that's not a typo...ACTIVE associates -- in 69 countries around the world.

  • Liberty League has retail product customers in over 100 countries around the world

  • Liberty League has an 8-year track record of success and continues to lead by example
So, when I see other companies -- and marketers -- who feel that the only way they can succeed is by attacking Liberty League....well, I can't help but smile a bit. It makes me wonder where they got their lack-consciousness and "limited pie" mindset. I certainly hope it's not from the products they're selling that are supposed to make one more successful!

At the end of the day, none of it matters. If people quiet their minds....unplug from the "noise"...they will tend to attract the right business for them. Maybe it's Liberty League. Maybe it's something else.

In the meantime, it sure seems like a lot of people are worried that it might be us. Either way, it's good publicity for Liberty League.

Best of success to you guys!

Executive bathrooms, meaningless titles and other BS

I just saw an article about "interning" and I can't avoid ranting for a second. This concept of "interning"....is that the stupidest thing in the world or what?

In any other part of the world, if you were forced to work without pay, it would be called "slavery" or "forced labor". But, in America, some corporations (and politicians) have actually managed to talk people into the idea that working for free is a good thing!

It'd be funny if it weren't so sadly ludicrous.

Of course, it's based on the concept of "apprenticeship" which has been around for ages. An apprentice works for years with a master of the craft and then one day is able to be his own boss and reap the benefits of his study.

But the difference is that an "internship" usually leads to a path of DECLINING value.

And what's really funny is that people actually believe that an "internship" is better than getting paid! Seriously. If you were to go to a college campus and ask students if they'd rather work as a carpenter's apprentice for $20 an hour....or go answer phones in some corporate office for free....

...they actually choose to work for free!

So, if you're looking to get an "internship", let me offer you a perspective you might not have considered:
  1. If your "internship" goes according to plan, the best-case scenario is that you're going to wind up getting hired for around $24,000 per year to do what you were already doing for free anyway: answering the phone, taking messages, picking up the boss's dry cleaning. Or whatever.

  2. The likelihood that you could earn far more money far more quickly is almost guaranteed. The only real satisfaction you will have as an intern is the dangling carrot that the boss keeps waving about how you're "building your resume" and "making connections".

  3. If you DO manage to put up with the office politics long enough to get yourself hired, the only real "payoff" you get at that point is the ability to kick around the latest crop of interns who have signed up to work for the office for free!
Let me offer you a different possibility:

What if....you could own your own home-based business in an $11 billion per year industry where you can create your own fortune without having to kiss anyone's butt?

What if....you can earn a multiple six-figure income before the current crop of interns ever figure out how to take a second coffee-break without the boss finding out?

What if...the path from where you are to where you WANT to be didn't have to involve boardrooms, office politics, glass ceilings, or the so-called "perks" that don't do anything to help you with your financial well-being?

What if...you could replace the promise of a fancy title, pretty business cards, a fancy desk chair and a key to the executive washroom with the reality of living where you want to live, driving what you want to drive and doing what you want to do?

What if....the only paperwork you had to do were deposit slips at your bank?

What if...you earned more in a month than a hired-intern earns in a year?

What if.....well, you've got the picture.

Interning -- and employment in general for that matter -- is for people who think they need to postpone their dreams in order to live someone else's dreams.

When are you going to start living YOUR dreams? How much time do you have on this earth? When would NOW be the right time to start doing what YOU want to do?

Visit LibertyLeague.com today and find out how I jumped out of the rat race and landed in a life without limits. If you like what you see, give me a call and I'll be glad to show you how I did it and you can too.

Is It Hard Work?

I was talking to a guy this week who had answered one of my ads. He asked me, "What's REALLY involved in making money in Liberty League? I mean, what does your day really look like?"

As it happens I get this question so often that I set up a website about it called HereIsMyDay.com . But, I went ahead and took a minute to tell him what my average day looks like.

In fact, I shared with him the activities of the previous day.

  • Received or made 8-10 phone calls from people who had requested information about our business
  • Left some messages with a few people....
  • Invited four people to attend a live presentation call outlining Liberty League's exclusive marketing system, pay plan and products
  • Went to lunch with my wife and kids, played Mario Kart on the Nintendo Wii and later that evening I went to watch my kids test for the next belts in Tae Kwon Do.
  • Received callbacks from three of the four people who were on the presentation. Two of them chose to start their Liberty League and purchase the Beyond Freedom Life Achievement Course. (Congratulations Ross and Ashley)
So....10 phone calls....4 presentations.....$2,000 in personal net income

And, no the numbers aren't always that. Sometimes it's 8 presentations and 2 sales. Or 4 presentations and no sales. Or 2 presentations and 2 sales. Everyone is on their own path and they make their decisions in their own time.

But, here's my point in telling you this....

After I answered this guy's question about "What my day really looks like"...he IMMEDIATELY said, "Yeah, but you still have to work hard to get those phone calls don't you?"

I laughed and said, "Yeah. I ran an ad. Pretty hard, huh?"

He said, "Well, I'll bet it took you a long time to learn how to do all that marketing, didn't it?"

And that's when it hit me. This guy wasn't looking for answers.

He was looking for reasons why this is "hard"!
He was looking to justify why he couldn't do it!
He was looking for an excuse for why he needed to stay on the sidelines.

Please.

C'mon.

Who can't run an ad? I know a 63 year old lady who's a fully qualified Summit Advisor because she isn't afraid to hand out a business card.

Who can't have a brief conversation and invite someone to a presentation call? This isn't about "selling" and "convincing". It's about finding out who's serious enough about their goals to go to a presentation.

Who can't followup with someone and collect a decision? And if the person has questions, who can't push the Flash button on their phone and invite another leader to answer questions for them?

Awww....is that too hard?

Seriously, we're talking a total of 2-3 hours a day? Maybe 4?

Work that can be done anywhere in the world with a cellphone or laptop? Sitting in a coffee shop? Standing in line to go into a movie theater? Standing in the lobby of a Tae Kwon Do school?

Let me share this with you: success does not have to be hard. And if people tell you that it DOES, then they're simply the people who experienced it as hard. That's all.

But, if someone isn't willing to have a few phone conversations to earn this kind of money, you gotta wonder how serious they are about their goals.

Heck, anyone who isn't willing to do that deserves the punishment of a real job where you get to sit around working for someone else and earning 10% of what you're worth.

Is this "reasonable"? Heavens, no! That's why it works!

That's George Bernard Shaw over on the right, there.

I like him. He's famous for -- among other things -- he once said, "I've gotten rich by thinking a couple of times a week.

I love it. And that's the kind of people I like learning from.

So, let me tell you a story....

I'm thinking back three-and-a-half years ago. I went to a presentation call that explained how I -- me -- a former Waldenbooks bookstore clerk -- could actually get started in a home business and earn $250,000 in my first year.

And I "got" it.

I got started...and sure enough, I followed the system working part-time hours and made $15,000 in net profit in my first 30 days.

And I had to think....who the heck wouldn't do this??

And here's the answer: REASONABLE people wouldn't do this!


Yeah, that's right. "Reasonable" people won't do this.

What do I mean? Well, let's go back to our friend Mr. Shaw (above) and see what he says:
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
Read that again. Do you get it? The only progress that takes place in the world comes from the "unreasonableness" of men.

See, let me share this with you: it's not "reasonable" for someone to think they can actually earn $250,000 in a year in a home business! Not when the "average" person is squeaking by on $30,000 per year and working 50-60 hours a week.

Heavens no! That's totally unreasonable!

So, why is it that the average person has this "disconnect" between what they SAY they want....and what they're willing to do?

Here's the answer: the number one enemy of the "unreasonable" man is the masses. The "herd" of people who think like all the rest and constantly look at each other for approval.

In fact, since we're quoting famous people, here's one from a guy you may have heard of: Albert Einstein.
Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses, instead, to express his opinions courageously and honestly.

And see that's what Liberty League is all about. It's about people who are willing to be UNREASONABLE in their desire for a better life and they're willing to break free from the masses.

See, I can't be of any service to the "herd". Why? Because they cling to mediocrity. They cling to their comfort zone. Because they don't have a goal. They don't have any confidence in their ability to create their own life.

They worship "familiarity". They seek approval from their broke, miserable, pissed-off friends, family and neighbors and -- unless they change -- they will die broke.

Not "might die broke"....WILL die broke. There is no success for the mediocre person....that's why they're called "mediocre".

But the wonderful news is that Liberty League International is not in the business of trying to change the minds of the masses. No! We're not looking to convince people to play big in life....we're looking for people who have already decided to play big in life...and they're just looking for a place to do that.

Does that make me "better" than the reasonable, mediocre people? Of course not. I used to be one of them. And anyone can choose a different life at any moment.

But, until they do.....well, thank you for continuing to work in the jobs that I don't want to do. I don't like mowing my yard and I'm happy to pay someone else to do it who doesn't want to be a millionaire. And I'll pay him well! And give him a tip! I'm grateful that someone wants to wash my car....and I'm happy to pay him well, too! And give him a big tip, too!

Unreasonableness. It wasn't reasonable for Bill Gates to decide to put a computer in ever office in the world. It wasn't reasonable for Coca-Cola to want a bottle of their product in every refrigerator in the world.

And, no....it's not reasonable for you to want to work 15-20 hours a week and earn more money in a month than most people make in a year.

It's completely unreasonable. And that's why it works.

$500? C'mon....please.

Sigh.

I just don't get it.

I was just reading a blog. The writer is an MLMer.
That is, he's in multi-level marketing.

And my intention isn't to bash on MLM. There's plenty enough of that going around.

I'm grateful to MLM. It was the first thing that allowed me to consider the possibility that I could work from home.

But, as I look at most MLMers today, it seems to me that they're all committed to playing small.

Here's an example of what I mean. On the blog I just finished reading, the writer was offering the question "How much money do you need in the bank at 3% interest to earn $500 a month?" Answer: About $200,000.

And he went on to show that you're far more likely to earn $500 a month than to save up $200,000.

And he's right. (In fact, it's pretty obvious, isn't it?)

I'm not disagreeing with him.

My point is simply this: why are we talking about making $500 a month?

Seriously.

Many people -- including this particular fellow -- like to point out that a simple $500 a month increase in income would "take the pressure" off most families. Sometimes you hear it said that "90% of bankruptcies could be avoided if the household were earning just $500 more per month."

And there's the problem....

These examples sound good and look good on paper. But the truth is that if you're almost bankrupt and you suddenly get $500 a month coming in......well, you're still living at the poverty line!

Get that.

No, really get that.

If you put $500 into the budget of the average person who's struggling, they will still find a way to be broke as a convict within 6 months. You're just postponing the inevitable.

You're just re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

====> So, what's the solution?

Simply this: when people understand that they can earn FIVE THOUSAND dollars per month...or FIFTY-FIVE thousand dollars per month with no more time, work or effort than it takes to earn $500 in an MLM program....

...why settle for shooting low?

When you consider that earning $500 a month in an MLM is going to require you to spend, say, 'X' amount of time and energy in lead generation, prospecting, presenting and followup....

....you have to understand that the people earning $50,000 per month aren't working 100 times harder than you. Or 100 times more hours.

They're simply working in a business that gives higher rewards for the amount of time and energy they DO spend.

It's simply a matter of asking yourself, "What's my time worth?"

Because -- when you really understand that I didn't work any harder last week to earn $14,000 than someone else who earned $200......

...then you've figured it out.

It's all about leverage and vision.

Ditching The Need For Other's Approval

One thing is for sure: if you want to be radically successful in any area of life, it's going to require to adopt a policy of not giving a hoot what the masses think.

Get that.

If you've been in the "herd" and you finally decide to make a run for the fence....you're not going to be able to hold hands with the herd and hop into your new life at the same time

Most people have a huge appetite for other people's approval. "If I start a diet, my girlfriends are going to just point out how I failed at the last 6 I've started." Or, "If I start a home business, my father is going to laugh at me for joining 'one of those things'".

Do you feel that way? Here's a solution for you:

Cowboy up and tell those folks to mind their own business.

I kid you not. If you've got someone in your life that's constantly berating you...criticizing you....reminding you of your failures....trying to run your life for you.....

.....then you'd better do something about it. Because if you're not willing to do that, you're basically saying "Their opinion and approval is more important to me than my highest good."

Life is too short to play to the wrong crowd. Choose your dream and go for it.

The herd will still be crazing in the field while you're standing atop your mountain!

Your Best Life Waits Here

Friday, June 20, 2008

So you watched "The Secret".....

So you watched "The Secret"....

So you read the book....

So you downloaded "The Science of Getting Rich"....

So you went to a Tony Robbins weekend....

So you read "Think and Grow Rich"....

So you've been around personal development for years....

.......and you've learned some really "profound" things.

Let me ask you a question, though:
How profound is it if you know everything and your life doesn't work any better?

Does it really matter how educated you are about success principles if you can't see a dramatic difference between how your life looks as a result of what you know?
Seriously. Think about that.

Because, here's the thing: you've got a limited amount of time on this earth before your ride is over. And every day, week, month and year that goes by in your present situation ....is a day, week, month or year that you are not...living...up...to...your...potential.

Period. End of Story

All the resources I mentioned at the top of this post are GREAT. They really are. But, if your life is not a demonstration of what you know....then you're still not getting it.

The Beyond Freedom Life Achievement Course is unique in that it has a built-in COMMUNITY of people whom you can mastermind with daily and weekly.

It's not a book.
It's not a DVD.
It's not a CD.
It's not a study guide.

It's all of those things PLUS a personal experience.

Want a screenshot of my Inbox?

Every week I talk to dozens of people. Many of them have already had experience in a home business of some kind and they quit because they didn't have a system in place.

So, one of the questions they ask is: Tony, do you really have a system in place that I can use to get lots of people to respond to my marketing?

And the answer is 'yes'. In fact, here's proof:


All of these are people who have asked me for information on Liberty League International.

Read that again.

These are not purchased leads.
These are not people whose information I bought.

These are real people who know my name and who are expecting a phone call from me. People who have said, "Tony, I have time, money and interest and I want to know more about Liberty League".

How would you like to have a system in place where you can LITERALLY have more people asking you for information than you have time to call back?

It's a blast, I can tell you. In fact, I'll give away many of these leads to my team. Do you want to help me call some of them back?

I work with serious, coachable and trainable people who are dead serious about getting their first $1,000 profit in record time. And if you are that person, then I have absolutely no reservations about making sure you've got people to talk to on your first day in the business.

And you'll also learn EXACTLY how to create "leads on demand" and make sure that you always have more people to talk than you need.

Look at it again:


A good percentage of these people WILL purchase a copy of the Beyond Freedom course from me in the next 72 hours. And I will earn $1,000 profit on each sale.

Wouldn't you like to be in the same business I'm in?

Call me. I'll be traveling on Wednesday but you can reach me on my cell: 334-655-8194. If the voicemail is full, drop me an email to tony@tonyrush.com

Liberty League Goes Green!

Liberty League International decided to go green this June. In honor of World Environment Day, the League redesigned their Beyond Freedom product packaging to use only eco-friendly materials. The redesign was the company’s contribution in a worldwide effort to achieve a low carbon economy.

Liberty League found a way to reduce the harm done to the atmosphere by changing their product packaging. The newly re-designed Beyond Freedom kit does not use foam at all and is made from materials that are 100% recyclable. Switching to recyclable materials and removing foam from the packaging was how Liberty League kicked their habit of relying on materials that are known to be hazardous to the environment.

Read the complete story here.

It's all a part of how Liberty League International is committed to changing the world!

The "truth" about Liberty League?

Every once in a while someone will say "Hey, Tony, did you hear about this thing that was said online about Liberty League?" And I usually haven't seen it or heard about it. I'm pretty selective about what I choose to put my attention, energy and focus on.

But, I'll say, "No, what is it?" And it's someone who's saying they've got the "truth" about Liberty League.

And it really cracks me up sometimes. I even read in one post that I'm the CEO of Liberty League! Me! Who writes this stuff?

Anyway, I ran across a site today called LibertyLeagueTruth.com that was a bit of surprise to me. I hadn't seen that one before. Looks like someone finally decided to stop being emotional and actually state a rare and truthful experience.

Check it out.

Good Lemonade!

A few days ago, I was reading a wonderful little book by Alan Cohen called "Relax Into Wealth". In it, it tells a story of a friend of his who wrote a book called Good Lemonade.

The story is about a boy named Hank who sets up a lemonade stand in front of his house. During his first few days on the job, Hank attracts only a handful of customers and no one returns.

So he tries all kinds of gimmicks and come-ons to attract customers: he offers discounts, paints the cups, and hires two go-go girls to come and dress up as lemons. After a week of this sort of thing, Hank still only makes a few sales.

Then Hank discovers that another kid has set up a lemonade stand down the block, and he has a long line of customers every day. Hank decides to stand in the long line to find out why the other kid is selling so much lemonade. When he tastes the lemonade, his eyes light up.

It really is good lemonade!

Hank dashes home and mixes his own lemonade with fresher lemons and a little more sugar. the next day, he finds a long line of people standing at his lemonade stand, waiting for their cup of good lemonade.

So...what does this have to do with Liberty League?

Simply this....every week I talk to dozens of people who are looking for the "secret" to making money from home. Just yesterday I had an instant message from a guy named Jim who wanted to pitch me on another "latest, greatest hottest deal" that's supposedly designed for all those people who are looking for an automated system with all the bells and whistles.

(I had to smile. I thought about Hank the Lemonade Boy hiring those girls to dress up as lemons.)

And Jim is probably a good guy. But, when his deal gets shut down (which is a copy of two other such deals that were both shut down within six months), he'll probably bounce into another one.

Why? Because he's chasing the gimmicks.
He's buying into the story that "making money is hard" and that you need lots of flash and pizazz to attract people.

Maybe that's true for Jim. What's also true for Jim is that he's been around this industry for a long time and he's still jumping from company to company.

I think I'll just stick with having Good Lemonade. It makes more sense to me to tell people that our product is great and our pay plan is great....but that if you want to make a multiple six-figure income....

...yeah, you're going to have to make some changes that can't be made by having a flashy system with lots of bells and whistles.

You're actually going to have to show up.
You're actually going to connect with another human being.
You're actually going to become a leader. Probably in ways that you never imagined you could.
And, yes, you will have a really nice system to make your business simple and effective.....but the system is secondary.

The biggest advantage we have is that we just have GOOD LEMONADE.
And not just flash, glitter, glitz, pizazz, and hype.

It feels good to be able to make so much money by just being honest and authentic with people. And it certainly beats having bad lemonade and trying to dress it up as something it's not. :)

So, why aren't you already rich?

Chances are good that you probably aren't rich yet. Do you want to know why? There is an answer. And I'll share it with you. But, first, let me offer you some related questions:

1. Why do people NOT drink 8 glasses of water a day when they know it's good for them?
2. Why do people eat at McDonald's when they know it's bad food?
3. Why do people smoke cigarettes even though they know it causes disease and death?
4. Why do people NOT set aside some of their money for investing even though they know all wealthy people do?

The answer: small errors in judgment compounded over time. Or, to put it another way, they know that the short-term payoff is going to be small so they're not motivated to do it.

But, try this on:

What if you knew the next cigarette you smoked would kill you instantly?
Answer: the tobacco industry would bankrupt overnight - snap - just like that.

See, no one plans on getting cancer and dying. They just figure that quitting smoking tomorrow will be just as good as doing it today. After all, what difference does a day make? Or another Big Mac? Or another day of not investing money?

You're smart. You see the point.

And it's the same way with choosing to be wealthy. One of the differences between wealthy people and broke people is that wealthy people choose to be wealthy today. We make decisions today based on the results we want to have.

It's an easy thing to do. But, as with most things, if it's easy to do....it's easier not to do.

It's easy to stay stuck.
It's easy to get involved in another business that you already know isn't going to get you where you want to go.
It's easy to follow the crowd.
It's easy to let broke people tell you what you should do.
It's easy to make a decision tomorrow.
It's easy to let someone else think for you.

It takes a little more fortitude to make bold decisions and to take a path that most people aren't willing to take, even though that's where all the rewards are.

When I "got" this....when I realized that the only way I was going to be successful in a home-business was to start thinking for myself instead of following the masses.....that's when I started seeing major results.

Liberty League International is all about making decisions NOW to get the results you want NOW. It's about creating a "life without limits" NOW....not 3-5 years down the road. It's about being the owner of your life NOW....not when you have a few thousand people on your team.

Question: when would NOW be the right time for you to start earning thousands of dollars each week?

What level of this chart are YOU on?

FACT: most of the people you see every day are engaged in "survival-thinking". Only a handful are engaged in "success-thinking".

If you're not familiar with Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (pictured here), take a look at the bottom two levels. These are the areas that -- according to Maslow -- give you ZERO positive emotional payoff if you achieve them. But they DO give you a very NEGATIVE emotional payoff if you DON'T achieve them.

This is where most people operate. They spend all their mental resources thinking about food, shelter, clothing, and paying the bills.

They focus on how they're going to get from this payday to next payday. In many cases they're "robbing Peter to pay Paul"; that is, they're running late on their mortgage so they can pay their insurance.

And make no mistake about it: these aren't just people living below the poverty line. Some of these people are making $50,000 a year.

In fact, if you were to poll 1,000 people who earn only $25,000 a year, I'd guess that most of them would think that their life would be problem-free if they earned $50,000.

But it wouldn't. Why? Because they're so accustomed to "doing without" that they don't even have some of the bills that they SHOULD have. Like health insurance. And life insurance. And putting aside a portion of their earnings into investments.

So, when the $25,000 earner gets to $50,000 they often find that they're STILL not living the lifestyle they wanted. They're just operating at a higher level of survival.

Liberty League International is all about helping people achieve the top THREE levels of Maslow's hierarchy of needs; look at the chart. These are the areas where you not only have the basics of life handled....but you're finally able to focus on things that DO give you a huge emotional payoff.

You can spend time with your family.
You can focus on your art.
You can visit the exotic locations on the planet.
You actually have time to sit down with your child and watch them draw a picture.
You can sample the best quality foods, fabrics, clothing and experiences.
You can hire people to make your life easier (a lawn man, a nanny, a personal chef, a trainer, etc.)

So, let me tell you something you already know: you don't live this way on $25,000 a year. Or even $50,000 a year. And usually not on $100,000 a year.

Don't get me wrong. Everyone has to start somewhere. And any new step on that ladder is a step in the right direction. But, when you join Liberty League International and you find how simple it is to achieve a $25,000 per MONTH income.....you'll begin to find that the life you've wanted has been waiting for you all the time.

Where are YOU spending your time? On the bottom two levels of Maslow's chart?

Are you ready to create the kind of freedom and income that will allow you to tap into the top levels?

It all begins with a choice. Contact me for details and I'll be glad to share with you a very special mastermind group I'm putting together within Liberty League International that will assist you in achieving your goals.

I'll look forward to speaking with you!

Can you really make money faster?

Someone asked me the other day, "Can I really make money faster in Liberty League than I can in a normal multi-level marketing pay plan?"

My answer was pretty simple. "Brenda, if you were in a multi-level marketing plan and someone in your downline bought some product this month....you'd probably make $10 or less on that purchase. At that rate, it would take you 8 years and 4 months to earn $1,000 on that customer's purchases.

"In Liberty League, you earn a minimum of $1,000 everytime someone buys a product. And the beautiful thing is that it takes no more time, effort, energy or marketing to earn $1,000 profits as it does to earn $5 profits. You're still going to be 'working' around 15-20 hours a week."

"So, the only question is......what is your time worth? "

It's not hard to figure out.

So, what is Liberty League REALLY about?

So, what is Liberty League REALLY about? I'm going to answer that in a way that you might not expect: with a quote from a book about......tennis.

"Tennis?", you say. "What would a book about tennis have to do with Liberty League International?" Good question.

If you play tennis you're probably already familiar with the writings of Timothy Gallwey, the author of "The Inner Game of Tennis". In this book, he says...

In the introduction to his ground-breaking best seller, The
Inner Game of Tennis, author Tim Gallwey wrote the following:
"Every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game. The outer game is played against an external opponent to overcome external obstacles and to reach an external goal. Mastering this game is the subject of many books offering instructions on how to swing a racket, club or bat, and how to position arms, legs or torso to achieve the best results. But for some reason, most of us find these instructions easier to remember than to execute."
Gallwey goes on to explain that real success in the playing of any game must include attention to the skills of the inner game...the game that takes place in the mind of the player. He points
to such internal obstacles as lack of concentration, nervousness and self-doubt as "habits of mind" that must be overcome before excellence in performance will be accomplished. He writes:
"The player of the inner game comes to value the art of relaxed concentration above all other skills; he discovers a true basis for self-confidence; and he learns that the secret of winning any game lies in not trying too hard.

He aims at the kind of spontaneous performance which occurs only when the mind is calm and seems at one with the body, which finds its own surprising ways to surpass its own limits again and again. Moreover, while overcoming the common hang-ups of competition, the player of the inner game uncovers a will to win which unlocks all his energy and which is never discouraged by losing."
That, my friend, is what Liberty League is about.
That's what the Beyond Freedom Life Achievement Course is about.
That's what the Liberty and Summit Conferences are about.

In every home business you've ever been involved with, your sponsor has tried to convince you to join by promising you how easy it would be; how automated it would be; how all the work would be done for you.

That kind of language is catnip for people who don't understand that you cannot EARN a large income until you are willing to BECOME a large person.

Liberty League -- and its products -- are all about showing you how you can unlock all of your potential and discover how powerful you really are.

So....

What is Liberty League REALLY about?

Imagine a life where you can actually get MORE done by doing LESS.
Where you can reduce the amount of resistance in your life.
Where you can have fingertip control over the opportunities, people and situations you create in your life.
Where you can create your life by DESIGN instead of just waiting to see "what life will hand you".
Where you can create a life without limits.

THAT is what Liberty League is about.

Isn't it time you found out the real truth about what Liberty League is doing for its customers and members? Check out these stories for yourself!

"Hype In Network Marketing"

I was reading a conversation in an online discussion forum today. It was about "hype" in marketing. And the more I thought about the word "hype", the more I recognized it for what it is: it's really just a word that's designed to get a knee-jerk (and negative) reaction.

The biggest challenge seems to be that no one can agree on a definition.

For instance, let's say that someone says you can earn $10,000 in a single month within your first 90 days in a home business. I think most of the people in the conversation I was in would probably say that's an example of "hype".

And yet, I earned much more than that in my first 90 days in our business. So, obviously, it can be done.

So, I think the issue with the word "hype" is that people use it when they see something that is either A.) outside their own experience, B.) outside their willingness to accept it for themselves or C.) outside their belief that it's possible for them.

This is probably best illustrated with a simple example.

Let's use a wild analogy and imagine there's a guy stranded on a deserted island with nothing but a typewriter and thousands of sheets of paper. And with nothing else to do, our guy teaches himself to type with his two forefingers. In other words, he's using the "hunt-and-peck" method.

And so, day after day, our guy types stories and his journal entries with just two fingers. And, as is the norm, he averages around 7 words a minute over time.

Then let's imagine that he gets rescued and comes to civilization. One of the first things he sees is an advertisement for a typing class that says:

"Learn To Type Up To 70 Words Per Minute. Only 30 Minutes
A Day."

Our guy reads the sign and says, "Hogwash! I've been typing for years and I've never been able to type more than 7 or 8 words a minute. These people are just trying to get my money. This is all HYPE."

But he's wrong.

It's not hype.

Millions of people type 70 words a minute or more.

And the ONLY thing that will keep this person from becoming one of those people is that he's already made up his mind about what is possible for him.

Typing 70 words a minute is outside his experience.
Typing 70 words a minute is outside his beliefs.
And so, he will forever type only SEVEN words a minute because he is unwilling to accept this new possibility for his own life.

So, how does this relate to "hype in network marketing"?

Simple: most people in network marketing aren't making a lot of money. In fact, many are making next to nothing. Many of these people have been in or around the industry for 5, 10 even 20 years and still have never made any significant income.

To compound the problem, they tend to gravitate toward each other. And so, to add to their own personal experience, now they are part of a larger group of people who ALSO have never had any significant results in the business.

So -- like our friend on the deserted island -- they just "know" that earning a multiple six-figure income is something that takes a long time to achieve.
And they just "know" that it cannot be done within one's first year.
And they just "know" that it takes a lot of work.
And they just "know" that it requires a massive downline.
And they just "know" that only a handful of people will do it.

Heck, everything they know is wrong. But they go on "knowing" it. Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. And year after year.

And anytime someone shows them a way to create a larger result in a shorter amount of time.......well, they're just as closed-minded as the prospects they complain about. And some of them will even go to the Internet and complain about all the "hype" in the industry.

They'll write long essays about how bad it is for people to talk about large results....how immoral it is for someone to suggest that one can earn a huge income in as little as 6-12 months.

And it will never occur to them that they're very much like the man on the deserted island who is determined to stay "stuck" while simultaneously claiming that they want to be able to get better results.

So, where does this leave us?

Does hype exist? Sure it does. I'm sure there are people out there who are claiming that they'll "guarantee" that you'll make a certain amount of money. But do you really see that happening very often? I'm sure they're out there but it's not something I see every day.

But more often than not, when someone criticizes something as being "hype", what they're probably saying is "I'm not ready to play at the level of the game yet. I'm not ready to be on that rung of the ladder."

And that's okay, too.

It's all about choice.

The most important thing is that we don't remain "stuck" where we are because we think that our perspective is the only right one. Especially when there is evidence that some of the people we accuse of "hype" are actually getting the results we claim to want.

So, if you're a network marketer who's been around the industry for 3, 5, 10 or 20 years....now is a good time to ask yourself: "When am I really going to start getting the results that I say are available in this industry? And at what point am I willing to accept something new in my life that I might have rejected in the past?"

Food for thought.

What Are My Odds For Success?

I was hosting a presentation call last week -- something I volunteer to do and enjoy doing -- and someone asked me, "What are my odds of succeeding in Liberty League"?

I understood her question. She was looking for a number that would tell her how many people "succeed" versus how many "fail".

On the surface, the question sounds good. It looks good on paper. But the way most people ask this question indicates a HUGE lack of understanding about success. Here's what I mean:

Let's say a person wants to be a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. They want to know how many people take Tae Kwon Do classes and -- of those -- how many people achieve the black-belt level. Say that figure is 1% (I have no idea). In their minds, this represents a 1 out of 100 possibility for them. And so this person will assume that their personal "odds" are 1 out of 100.

And this is their mistake. The 1% figure doesn't exist because 99% of people "fail". It exists because most of the 99%ers are just taking up room. Tae Kwon Do is one of those things that have an easy-entry. You can show up on a Tuesday night, pay some money for a uniform and technically be "in" Tae Kwon Do. But that doesn't mean you're committed.

On the other hand, if you're someone who is seriously passionate about becoming a black belt and you're willing to commit the time, effort and energy to do the work....then your "odds" of becoming a black belt are about 100%

Seriously. 100% success ratio. For every person who says "I'm going to be a black belt" and then actually does what is required to achieve it.

And it's the same thing in our business. I don't regularly see people who who are doing exactly what we teach in Liberty League who are not getting results. And when I occasionally run across someone who says, "Hey, why am I not getting results?", I can usually ask them five questions and find that they are skipping one or more basic principles that we teach in our business.

And when they correct their activities and actually start doing what we teach....then the results show up.

So, success is not a matter of "odds". It's not a slot machine. It's not a lottery. It's a CHOICE. And since anyone can choose to actually do the things that create results.....then anyone can choose to be successful.

What are YOU choosing for your life? If you'd like to find out how to achieve a lifestyle of wealth and time freedom with Liberty League, contact me at http://www.tonyrush.com and I'll be glad to show you exactly what I do.
