    I love the positiveness of this site and videos. In my fitness marketing business and my 24 hour gym business, i have used cheap marketing techniques to make more money in these hard times than i did when the economy was going great, all i can say is it’s all in your attitude and the way you market your business, but right now, keep marketing while your competition is saving their money because when your attitude is positive, you dont worry about all the money you spend on getting your message to your prospects and you will end up in front of your competition.
    thanks, shannon cook fitness marketing expert

    How to Make Big Money in Bad Times

    Answer was —- Change your mindset to Success. Stay away the thinking of fail. If they thinking of success then big money will come to their bucket with full of water and woll be overflow out of the bucket.

    Change the mindset to success is power of change. Most people ask me how to change the mindset. I say go get Success Magazine and also go to Success’s website there a store with many book, dvd, cd and more. those is best tool that can help people’s mindset change to success.

    That it.

  1. [...] [DARREN HARDY] Benjamin, congratulations on your ambition, diligence to take this process seriously and for finding a great company like ACN to associate with. Direct sales is what I did at 18 years old to start making a six-figure income so you have found an excellent vehicle to help you realize your goals. And yes, when you are young with fewer responsibilities (spouse, children, etc.) you can swing for the fences and have a little more reckless abandon than those who have a family to consider. If if you go bust, the only person affected is you and you can chalk it up to the price of entrepreneurial tuition. Go for it Benjamin!! Video on the Art of Taking Risks [...]
