How To Break Out Of Novice-Hood

His clients were in t-shirts and jeans, but James was wearing a suit.

He is worried he over-dressed, and he’s worried about a few other things, too.

James just met with the co-owners of a wedding photography business in California, his first marketing consultancy client.

“I want to do a good job for them, but I don’t think they know how little I know about marketing.”

James is, by all counts, a novice. Still, he’s already made several major changes to the young business’ brand, expanded and integrated their web presence, and is hard at work making sure ‘the right people’ find them.

The business owners are paying $40/hour, and they are blown away by his work.

Here’s why.

James may be a novice, but he’s learned the one lesson he needed to break into the professional world:

Effective marketing isn’t magic; it’s a science.

3 Ways The 12 Minute Affiliate Program Will Devastate Your Resume

Working with The 12 Minute Affiliate Program might sabotage your employability by encouraging you to develop unhealthy working habits.

As much as we love The 12 Minute Affiliate Program, we must admit that many of our people fail to learn these highly employable habits.

– Learning how to repay student loans. Yours or your children’s. For whatever reason, most of our business owners never end up taking out student loans.

– Becoming a proficient driving schedule coordinator. Some families know exactly who needs to be dropped off where, when, and by whom, and how quickly they need to get the car back home for Greg to drive himself to bowling club.

– Developing creativity in the kitchen. Saying “Yes” to The 12 Minute Affiliate Program has made some of our people lazy… they’ll throw away yesterday’s soup instead of turning it into tomorrow’s pasta sauce.

“Thin times” are great for developing the strategic and administrative skills that look great on a resume.
But our folks don’t seem to need resumes anymore.

If this terrifies you as much as it should… DO NOT…

This Is What It Feels Like To Make Our Commissions

What does it feel like to make commissions in the $1000s, $5000s, and $9000s with The 12 Minute Affiliate Program?

Whether our business owners go full-time into building their businesses, or keep it as a side-project, everyone says that the best feeling is getting that little itch to do a kind thing… and not having to say “No.”

And it feels a little like this:
– Watching your son hit his first Little League home run with a teammate’s baseball bat, opening your Amazon app, and getting him his own.

– Seeing a person experiencing a season of homelessness and going with your gut: getting them a sandwich, and a good book.

– Buying the movie instead of renting it.

– Employing the little entrepreneur on the block who wants to mow all of his neighbor’s lawn for $5. Maybe giving him a little more work, too.

It’s always the little things that make our life that much richer.
How would you bless your loved ones if you didn’t have to worry after every dollar and cent?

My #1 Musical Pet Peeve

Here is my number one musical pet peeve:

You know how the right way to listen to music is to sit down, drink in hand, and listen consecutively through a whole album?

It’s the best way to hear what the artist really has to say.

So, my pet peeve is this:

When I sit down to listen through an “album,” but it turns out the artist has just patched together some mismatched tracks and pretended they have something to do with one another.

They had my ear, but they wasted my time.

I feel the same way when I see disintegrated marketing platforms. Voices in conflict, asymmetrical vocabulary and tone, coloration differences…

In all, just a failure to say one thing well.

We’re critics in our spare time, but our main work is to integrate a marketing and sales platform around one single principle:

To make you money.

Let’s build your platform together.

It’s difficult work, but you’re a hard worker, and we’re brilliant teachers.

Frodo Thinks You Should Get Out More

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

If you know the books or the movies, you know what happens next:

Frodo does go out his front door, leaves town, and falls into a fantastic adventure.

Totally unplanned.

With great friends.

With purpose, difficulty, and reward.

But most of today’s workforce isn’t in danger of such adventures.

They’re not allowed to leave their cells long enough to get swept away into something unplanned… with great friends… with purpose, difficulty and reward.

It would sure be a dangerous business stepping out into 12 Minute Affiliate Program.

If you do, there might be no going back.

Which Kind Of Job Do You Have 1-2 ?

At the end of the day, there are two kinds of work.

Hundreds of different jobs… but only two kinds of work.

I call the first kind “doing what you’re told.”

The second is “doing what you see.”

The first kind of worker plays by the rules—usually rules made by someone else. They follow procedures and are evaluated primarily on their conformity to the rigid structure of their job or their industry.

The second kind of worker is given a more fundamental kind of dignity.

We’re asked to press in, look close, study hard, ask questions, and do what we deeply think is right.

This includes entrepreneurs, scholar-teachers, and government leaders.

That’s what we get paid the big bucks for—being humans, not cogs.

Work with The 12 Minute Affiliate System and become a self-starter, a problem-solver, a star consultant, and a very wealthy person.

Most importantly, live a richer work-life.

An Update On My Baking Hobby

If you read my email about chocolate cake the other day, you might be curious about how my new baking kick is going.

(He thought to himself, vainly)

Well, it’s going great.

This week, I made focaccia.

It’s one of the simplest breads—flour, water, oil, salt, and a pinch of yeast.

Before you stick it in the oven, you’re also allowed to press whatever the crap you want into it to give it flavor.

I had a bulb of garlic and some cherry tomatoes lying around, so I stuck them in.

Aaaaand it was pretty perfect.

And the best part is this: I now know how to make four more focacciae (?):
– Cinnamon sugar focaccia
– Barbecue chicken focaccia
– Pesto, asiago, pine nut focaccia
– Mushroom, pepper, and sundried tomato focaccia

Hell, I could make a ‘Froot Loop focaccia’ if I really wanted to.

What I’m getting at is this:

Once you get the basic idea, you can make an endless number of versions.

Through the 12 Minute Affiliate Program, we are going to school you in the ‘basic’ skills of online business. Only what is absolutely essential to becoming an online business mogul who can churn out business after business (if you really wanted to).

Or, tell me what’s so great about your day job now.

Why Doing My Taxes Is Miserable

Years ago, when I was ‘green’ out of college, I remember looking forward to tax season.

After all, when you’re just barely breaking five figures for the first time (I don’t miss those days…), tax season is when you make a few hundred bucks back!

Of course, I enjoy it less now.

For obvious reasons:

I owe a lot more…

Fielding monthly commissions in the $1000s, $5000s, and $9000s, we can forget how much of that we owe back to the IRS.

But hey.

Making my old ‘annual salary’ every month makes it worth it every other day of the year.

If you’re like me and want to pay more taxes… (if ya know what I mean)

My Facebook Is Covered With These Awful Ads

For whatever reason, probably because of my line of work, my Facebook page gets bombarded with self-help ads.

Greasy twenty-somethings who have read a couple books on business leadership and try to pass as consultants.

The Internet is slick with greasy millennials trying to juke the job market (and hard work) by posing as experts in fields they’ve never worked in.

And people fall for it.

Here is your three-step guide for sniffing out greaseball gurus. When you see their ads, ask yourself these three questions:

– Will it cost me?

Some posers lead with a “free trial,” collect your credit card info, and cross their fingers you don’t cancel your payment. Or they’ll charge you 99 cents.

A real opportunity with real value, costs SOMETHING up front.

– Will it work?

I’m talking proof. And this is the one hill I die on. If they cannot prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that their program will work for you, they don’t deserve a dime of your money.

The 12 Minute Affiliate system is a results machine. “It works if you work it.” (Join today for dozens of success stories.)

– Are they wildly successful?

Who cares if they’ve been in business for 20 years, or if they’re the newest, hottest thing. The question you need to ask is, Are they getting steadily bigger?

The 12 Minute Affiliate System has shelled out $20,000,000 plus in commissions for quite a long time .

Well, that’s the test. How did we do?

Opportunity Said The Cheesy Headline

I’ve recently received a string of emails with a one-word subject-line: “Opportunity.”

I don’t know about you, but I fall for these every time. My attention perks up for a moment and I wonder who could be reaching out to me and what for.

Turns out it’s some new networking start up.

One that hasn’t learned from dinosaurs like LinkedIn that no generalized professional network site will ever hold a candle to image-driven social media.

(They tried.)

I solemnly swear never to try to sucker anyone into an ambiguous “opportunity” if I couldn’t proceed to explain the system in its entirety, demonstrate its track record, and answer any and all questions immediately.

With 12 minute affiliate program, we will…
– Build you a website
