16 DVD Course for Free (Holiday Gift)

The rumors are true…

One of the big name heavyweights in marketing online has decided to leave the “guru” world, drastically change his business for 2010 and give away his $1,297 course…


To go out with a bang this holiday season, he’s decided to not only post a candid video explaining his shift, but he’s doing something even better for you as a gift…

He’s GIVING AWAY his most popular $1,297 home study course. (Which is actually all the DVD recordings from his $5,000/person sold out workshop.)

To kick things off now he’s giving you his favorite DVD from the entire sold out workshop and course: Stephen Pierce’s presentation on the exact steps he took to build a 7-figure business.

Just go to this page and put in your email address to get instant access:


There are no ‘catches’ or ‘tricks’. Even when he gives away the limited sets of the entire home study course later this week, there’s no forced continuity, no hidden charges, no forced trials or anything funky like that.

If you delay, you’ll miss out on this great freebie. I highly recommend you check this out right away.

Talk to you soon,

Chris 🙂

P.S. – Remember, he’s giving this away for FREE, but last time he actually sold the $1,297 course – he sold 2,500 copies in 7 days.  That means considering the extremely limited free sets he has available, they won’t last long.

Get in line for your free copy here:

(And yes, these are links I get paid on *only* if you decide to have him ship you the free copy when he launches it later this week.  But you don’t have to spend one single penny to watch the free $97 video he’s posted online!)

P.P.S. – I’m also working on putting together the 2nd Annual Customer Appreciation VIP Charity Event later this month – so keep an eye out for that.  Last year’s all-star free event filled up in a flash, and I’m sure this year will be no different.  Stay tuned!

3 Time-Saving Tools to Streamline Your Business Life

Before we jump into the cool article I have for you today, I wanted to share with you a few funny experiences I recently had…

For those of you at Yanik Silver’s Underground Online Seminar, you know it’s always a first-class experience from beginning to end.  And this year was no exception.

But the best part of the event is the evening networking (read: hanging around the bar until late into the night). 😉

This year when we came back from the speakers’ dinner on Sunday night, it was basically ‘last call’ for drinks at midnight.  (Washington, DC laws stink).   I egged on my good buddies Perry Belcher and Jimmy Sweeney who collectively ordered 150 beers for all of us. (Plus 20 more beers I got from the manager waaaaay past last call.)  Yes, one hundred seventy beers total. That way we could keep the party going all night.

Now if you’ve never seen 170 beers in one spot, it’s quite a site to behold.  Here’s a snapshot of the first 90 they brought out…

Power Hour at the Underground Online Marketing Event

Unfortunately, a lot of the beers were just sitting there not getting touched.  So I thought back to my college days…and resurrected a tried and true drinking game: Power Hour.  Basically, you have one shot of beer each minute.  For an hour.

Normally it’s simple…except when people have been drinking for a few hours beforehand.  Needless to say we gave the hotel quite some entertainment that evening.  Here’s a picture of me calling out the next shot at this new Underground tradition…

And here’s what happens later in the evening…

Yes, that’s Perry Belcher with a pair of Speedo’s on his head, and an ice bucket on my head.  What’s a business without a lot of FUN mixed in too, right?

We had a blast (in fact – if you search Twitter you can see how many people were talking about Power Hour and/or cursing me the next day)! If you’re coming to the seminar next year let me know.  You’re officially invited to “Power Hour – Part Deux” on Sunday evening.  🙂

Another awesome experience just happened a few days ago…

If you’ve been a student of mine for any length of time, you probably know how active I am in the arts — especially theater and music.  Each year, my company donates thousands to the arts around the country, particularly to the programs at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Well, as a perk this year, I was just invited to Senator Ted Kennedy’s birthday party at the Kennedy Center featuring stars from Bill Cosby to John Williams to Bernadette Peters to James Taylor.  This was one of the most fun evenings I’ve had in a looooong time.  Plus, as an added bonus, John McCain, the Vice President, and Michelle Obama were there too.  (Security was pretty nuts everywhere!)

Funny ending – Bill Cosby came out and remarked how off-key ‘Happy Birthday’ is usually sung everywhere, so he said we needed someone to set the proper key for us.  Then he said he fortunately just happened to have the best key-setter around…the President of the United States.  To our surprise, Obama himself came out onto the stage to lead everyone in Happy Birthday.

Fortunately, this evening didn’t have any political overtones (phew!) but was done for the sole purpose of honoring a man who has spent his entire life serving his country.

I had killer seats just 11 rows from the front, so here’s some bootlegged video I shot at the end of the evening you might find interesting…

Okay – that’s enough ‘FUN’ stuff for now. I’m off to Vegas next week, so I’m sure there will be more fun stories to share. 😉

Now, onto the business part…

As your entrepreneurial life takes off, you’ll find your business slowly getting cluttered with repetitive, frustrating (and often time-wasting) tasks. It’s all too easy to lose hours a week – or hours a DAY – getting stuck on inefficient things, instead of pouring your energy into profit-producing activities.

Which means, it’s critical you recognize the “time vampires”, as Dan Kennedy calls them, and put an end to them once and for all. Streamline your business before they start cluttering your day.

That’s why I’m a *huge* fan of outsourcing these tasks to different tools and systems so you can have more fun (and time) in your life. So with “Organize Your Home Office Day” being celebrated again this week, I thought it would be the perfect time to share 3 more of my favorite kick-butt, time-saving tools with you.

Streamlining Tool #1:
Go Paperless with Your Own Virtual “Box”

Last year when my Dad’s cancer popped up, we quickly had a growing pile of doctors’ reports, test results, audio recordings from each appointment, pictures from each cycle, Flip videos and more.

The problem was, how the heck do we centralize everything?  Enter Box.net!

Instead of passing around thumb drives, emails and making endless copies of paper, I simply set up a family Box account.  Everything got centralized online, with secure, controlled access.  In fact, I now scan everything and ‘file’ it away online for easy reference.  Then just shred the hardcopy…and viola!  Less clutter!

Need to send a link to just one file?  That’s easy.  Want to share a whole directory?  No problem.  What about embedding pictures in a webpage that stream from Box.net. Super-simple.  In fact I now use it to collaborate with Yanik Silver on MaverickBusinessInsiders.com as well as my own internal company projects.

It’s hard to quickly describe how powerful and easy Box.net is for collaboration, but I highly encourage you to get an account and check it out yourself. I use and recommend the “Individual” Box.net account, but a totally free “Lite” account gives you 1GB of storage to get started.

Streamlining Tool #2:
Set-it-and-Forget-it Painless Backups

Let’s be honest, if you are truly running a business, you can’t afford to lose your data, emails, client records and more.  Plus you probably don’t want to lose any of your family photos, videos or personal memories.

For the longest time, I used external backup drives to create copies of all my files in case my main computer locked up or crashed.  But it was a pain in the butt to remember to backup!  Plus what happens if I had a fire, flood or theft?  I’d still end up losing everything.  Ouch!

That’s why I decided to go with a secure off-site backup solution that automatically backs up ALL my files, hard-drives and more…without me having to lift a finger.

I spent quite a while researching solutions and settled on Mozy. Just install the small little program (PC or Mac – doesn’t matter), and follow the setup instructions and you’re good to go.  It runs quietly in the background while you work or sleep.

If you ever need to restore anything, just call up Mozy to get DVDs with your files overnighted to you or hop online and you can instantly access any of your files.

Like the other tools I’m recommending, Mozy has a free level of service, but I recommend you get the yearly plan.  Heck – 2 years of UNLIMITED off-site storage for your computer is only around $100.  Well worth it to have all your files and data constantly backed up so you can sleep soundly each night!

Streamlining Tool #3:
Down and Dirty ‘Getting Started’ Time-Saver: ShortKeys

Do you find yourself repeating the same things over and over again in emails?

Do the math and you’ll see you’re losing days, if not weeks, each year typing the same thing. 10 emails a day x 2 minutes typing up a response x 5 days a week x 50 work weeks a year = over 83 hours spent typing up similar responses to customers, team members, vendors and more each year. That’s at least two FULL work weeks totally lost to email!

No doubt, you can find a better use of your time as a business owner than to be constantly repeating yourself. Fortunately there’s a way to stop typing the same thing over and over again…with predefined responses.

There are a few different ways to implement a predefined response system.  If you’re just starting out – you can simply use templates or stationary in your email program.  In my email client, Eudora, my first year online I used stationary templates to handle seminar follow-ups, login details, bonuses, etc.  As soon as I got an assistant, I handed the templates over to her.

Now that’s the ‘ghetto’ version.  🙂

If you want a slicker, faster method I recommend a program called ShortKeys.  Essentially it’s a text replacement tool.  You create ShortKeys (phrases, words, etc.) in the program, along with the full response you want associated with them.

Then whenever you type the ShortKey *anywhere* in Windows, the program will instantly replace it with the full block of text associated with it.  So “.refund” could get replaced with your standard longer response.  There’s a free lite version of the software worth checking out.

(BONUS Tip: Once your business gets cranking, as soon as possible you’ll want to institute a web-based help desk and funnel every customer contact through there.  Not only can you set it up with predefined responses, but you can have a big team collaborating, provide a knowledgebase for your clients and provide much better service all around.  Check out our help desk at instantmlmsupport.com — the software I recommend to run it is at Kayako.com)

So there you have it – three (well four) new tools to streamline your life. Give them a try so you can spend less time bogged down in clutter and time-wasters, and more time making the $$$ and having fun in your business and life!

Please leave your thoughts below and also share some of YOUR favorite tools and tricks to cut back on the clutter and organize your life better. Help make this article even more useful!
