This past weekend, at the legendary Fontainebleau Hotel
in Miami Beach (the same one featured in the Bond movie,
“Goldfinger”), I had a chance to talk with legendary
marketer Michael Masterson.
(I acquired Masterson’s business, Early to Rise, back
in July of this year.)
Masterson described what he been trying to do with ETR,
saying, “The more info I could get out to help our
readers, the more they would improve.”
And that’s the same approach I’m taking here at
Internet Independence for you.
After all, it wasn’t many years ago that the Monday to
Saturday, 6-days per week, 6am to 8pm trainer lifestyle
was wearing me down.
Sure, I enjoyed working with a lot of my clients, but
not as much as I enjoyed working on my info publishing
business at night (and for those 20-30 minutes first
thing in the morning).
Back when I worked for someone else, each weekend always
had a bit of dark cloud hanging over it, one that got
bigger and darker as Sunday afternoon turned into
You’ve probably felt what I’m talking about…I called
it, “Monday Anxiety”.
It settles in around 8 or 8:30 on Sunday evening, and
strengthens with every minute you sit watching TV or
movies with your family.
And then it hits you around 10 or 10:30pm. A full-blown
attack of Monday anxiety that leaves you wide awake, even
when you want to fall asleep the most.
So you toss and you turn. And it only gets worse, because
Monday keeps on getting closer. There’s nothing you can do
Or is there?
As little as 15, or even 10 years ago, there really wasn’t
anything you could do.
And then along came the Internet.
It was 1998 when, as a lowly graduate student, I recognized
the potential of using the Internet to connect with readers
all over the world.
The key was providing amazing content.
Unfortunately, I didn’t crack the code for several more years,
and it was still a few more years after that until I was
independent, but the good news is that because of everything
I’ve gone through, YOU can get to independence much faster.
And so that brings me to today’s question:
What do you need to know about setting up your business in
order to create internet independence for you and your family?
- Finding the right market
- Developing the right product
- Getting visitors to your website
- Convincing those visitors to become clients
- Or something else…there are a ton of topics we can cover
Just let me know in the comments section below.
Alright, time to get back to writing on my exciting new
report, “The Future of the American Dream” where I’m
predicting what will happen to opportunity in 2012.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised, somewhat shocked, and
unfortunately, even slightly disappointed by the specifics
of what I have to say.
BUT…it’s much more optimistic than what you might expect
given all the negativity of the government.
Stay tuned for that soon. It’s a project I’m really
proud of…boy, do I love this job these days.
No more Monday Anxiety.
And while my life still involves work and sacrifice, I
now look forward to each and every Monday as much, if not
MORE than any other day of the week.
All thanks to the Internet.

Keep pushing on,
“I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no
man’s doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle
before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My
responsibility. Win or lose; only I hold the key to my destiny.”
