From the land of boxes and tape! Having successfully sold 80% of everything we own on Ebay (NO! I have not sold my Porsche! And I decided a long time ago that I will never sell it!) everything is falling into place. When we know exactly what we want and we are willing to put some daily effort into obtaining the outcome it usually appears!

I´m really excited about the next webinar on the 3rd of April about dropshipping. In the last group coaching call there were many people that wanted more case studies of freedom businesses and that´s what I´ve got lined up for you. (Registration under “Latest News”).


Freedom Lifestyle News

Michael Jordan ‘s Wisdom

Here’s a unique collection of Michael Jordan explaining keys to success in sports and life
that is very helpful to entrepreneurs. Jordan was my big hero when I was growing up playing as a point guard in my short basketball career. I quit basketball because I was a late bloomer and I thought that I didn’t have the height I needed to be great at the game, but who knows how good I could have become if I stuck at it!?! Jordan is known for his focus, persistence and excellent character. I hope you enjoy the clip below.

Multicast Marketing: How to Podcast, Publish and Promote Your Content to the World with Google Hangouts, YouTube Live, Kindle Books, Mobile and Social Media by Mike Koenigs

Recently I have started interviewing lots and lots of entrepreneurs that are living the freedom lifestyle and I have found it an extremely rewarding experience! In April I will be launching my very own podcast and they are based around the ideas I got from this very book + the joy and fun I had while speaking and meeting with fellow entrepreneurs. The core concept of this book is that you;

1) Do an interview with an expert and publish it to itunes
2) Write it into a blog post where you only mention the main parts and link to your podcast
3) Once you have enough interviews you can sell them in a package for let´s say $67

And so on and so forth. You use the interview to create various other media, they could be a video based on the interview as well as ppt. presentation that you publish to YouTube and SlideShare so you have all this traffic coming to your opt-in page or similar. Check out the book for more it´s quite a quick read…
