The Two Ingredients To True Progress

American politicians would like to think they’re making progress, but most of them are missing the two essential ingredients:

To make progress requires only two things:
1. A fixed goal.
2. The belief that you haven’t yet gotten there.


The problem with the far left is that they keep adjusting the goal!
The problem with the far right is that they think they’ve arrived!

But let’s not talk about politics. Let’s talk about what you can immediately control.

Say what you want about high taxation,
about inequitable privilege,
about whatever.

While we wait for politics to sort itself out, there’s something you can do in the meantime:
1. Admit that you envision a life with fewer financial barriers.
2. Admit you haven’t arrived.

Then, set aside a couple evenings a week to develop an online business using our template, our products, our consultation, our product fulfillment… and soon you’ll be racking in our commissions.

Making progress is on you.

Sleeping Through Another Leadership Seminar, Take II

Last week, a friend of mine roped me into attending another ho-hum, put-you-to-sleep leadership seminar.

Apparently I was too polite, because they invited me to another one this week.

But my time’s too valuable for that, so I said “No.”

He protested and then tried appealing to my emotions.

So I gave him these three good reasons why feel-good gurus will never make effective leaders:

1. They lie. First, this guru did what a lot of gurus do: appeal to people’s self-esteem by calling them all leaders. But he’s forgotten one of the essential attributes of a leader: followers. The better the leader, the more followers they have.

2. They create no value. The only thing they sell is themselves. (And where I come from, we call that prostitution.) The only thing they can offer you is a chance to make them money by making them more famous. Of course, they’ll give you a cut.

3. They have bad fake smiles. Okay, this isn’t a legitimate reason; it just bugs me is all.

MTTB is here to tell you the truth: you’re not a leader. You don’t have customers. But the reason we exist is to get you more customers so that… you will become what you are not yet. A leader.

I’m not going to ask you to make me famous. You go and set up your own business, under your own name, and use us as a resource, not a mascot.

Finally, no fake smiles here. MTTB has made my life better, not perfect. Nothing will make your life perfect. The success of our business model hinges on our sales, not on being happy-flappy-and-you-can-toooo!

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

Years ago, I found myself attending a conference that served the strangest breakfast I had ever seen.

Next to the football-shaped hashbrown patties and the football-shaped fake omelets, I saw a heavily breaded patty that looked like chicken.

So I took two.

When I returned to my table, I noticed it was full of southern gentleman, one of whom introduced himself:

“Good mornin’ to ya. Name’s Jimmy Chupp.”

Of course that was his name.

In an attempt to make conversation, I said, “This is my first time having fried chicken for breakfast!”

Without missing a beat, Jimmy’s shorter, bearded friend shot back, “That’s baked chicken, not fried chicken. You’re mistaken.”

It seemed I had offended several of the men at the table.

Good thing I hadn’t been in charge of catering. I probably would have made several mistakes that felt minor to me but major to everyone else in the room.

The thing is, we don’t know what we don’t know. And we need a coach to tell us.

I want to offer you a guide and a plan to navigate our new economy. No one knows the online business industry like our coaches do, and our 21-step guide is proven to set up your passive income stream for you.

You don’t know what you don’t know but, like Jimmy Chupp…

We do.

Why Leadership Seminars Suck

Somehow, a friend of mine just roped me into attending a *yaaawn* leadership webinar, and I learned SO MUCH.

Some self-proclaimed leadership guru got up and asked everyone to describe the perfect leader.

After listening to their riveting ideas, here are my 4 biggest takeaways about… why leadership webinars suck.

1. They offer no real opportunity. All a guru can do is make you feel good about yourself. They can’t give you a job, make you money, or offer you support.

2. Participation trophies… The smiling crocodile giving the presentation simply praised everyone’s silly answers. Real leaders don’t affirm wrong answers. They show you what you’re doing wrong… so you can do it the right way.

3. Gurus are leeches. They’re unemployed — either because they’re not willing to get a job, or because no one will hire them. They only make money when gullible people give in.

4. MTTB is the better way.

We take your success too seriously to make you feel good about yourself.

We offer you real opportunities to make money.

Our methods work. Make commissions in the $1000s, $3000s, $5000s, or $9000s.

So act now, or else…

Heck, business here is so good, it hardly makes a difference whether you click or not.

This is more about you than me.

This Job Interview Will Make You Angry

Earlier this week, a daughter of a friend of mine had a job interview for a first-year teaching position.

What the principal told her will make you furious.

Here are some of the things he said:

“I see you majored in music. So did I! We’ll have to set aside several hours a week for you to observe our music classes.”

“We understand that the transition from college to the workforce can be a lonely one. Our staff goes out to see movies together, play volleyball together, and some people even go horseback riding together!”

“I’m sorry cash is tight. If you need some of your salary upfront to put down money at your apartment, we can make that happen.”

She hung up and cancelled all of her other interviews, because she wants to work for this school.

When I tell this story, people have one of three reactions:

1. Jealousy: “I wish I had a job like that.”
2. Smug denial: “Jobs like that don’t exist; something will go wrong.”
3. Action: “Are they still hiring?”

Those first two people are still reeling in their bitterness.

The third person didn’t get a job as a teacher; he started a business with MTTB.

Be your own boss, and join a collaborative, non-competitive community of mentors and peers who are on your team.

A Surprisingly Religious Solution To Your Work Life.

Does something in your work life or financial life need to change?

I recommend a surprising method: prayer.

Some people pray by closing the door, closing their eyes, kneeling on the ground, folding their hands, and speaking their hearts and minds to God.

But I’m thinking of a different kind of prayer…

The Bible tells a surprising story about prayer:

A widow, feeling she has been wronged, visits a judge night and day, nagging.

Just nagging.

Pulling on his sleeve and reminding him, “I’m here! I’m here! Whatcha gonna do?”

Eventually, according to Jesus, the judge gives her what she wants. Not because she deserves it… But because her nagging worked.

If that counts as prayer, the MTTB phone sales team is extremely religious.

And, oh, did I mention that they not only make all your phone sales for you, but they will also fulfill your orders and deal with your customers?

You can do all you want of the first kind of prayer; but if you start with MTTB, we’ll nag night and day for you. And don’t get me started on the commissions we pay out…

Three Reasons Why To Never Click On Penny Hoarder Ads

Do you keep seeing Facebook ads for “The Penny Hoarder?”

It’s a website that pumps out article after article of small ways to make small money from home.

Here’s why respectable people like you shouldn’t give them any web traffic:

– Their solutions are unsustainable.

I know as well as you that money gets tight. But I also know that “tight money” is the symptom, not the problem. MTTB provides a consistent passive income stream that is a sure financial foundation.

– It’s self-disrespecting.

Think about their name: “Penny hoarder.” You’re not a Penny Hoarder. You’re a hard worker willing to invest in a well-proven, time-tested money-making opportunity when it comes knocking.

– Positive psychology benefits.

It does wonders for your psychology to know that the money you’re putting down on your kids’ education, your week-long vacation, or your down-payment on a new car comes from your hard work at something you own. Watching videos of celebrities and completing surveys doesn’t have that same effect.

If you’ve ever been tempted to click on Penny Hoarder, that’s a symptom. (I’ve been there, and I know it well.)

How To Know If You’re Getting A Real Business Education

The home business industry is so full of duds that it’s hard to know when you’ve picked a winner.

Here’s another test: Do their offer include a real business education?

(Start a man a business, feed him for a little while. Teach a man to start a business… feed him for life.)

Here’s one question I ask to sniff out a weak business education:

Do they sell static materials or interactive opportunities?

I’m sure people they’ve tried to sell you their e-books, their video series’, their webinar recordings, etc.

All that says is this:

“I want you to drop hundreds of dollars for a static piece of teaching material that costs me nothing to reproduce.”

If you want an education, hold out for an opportunity that provides one-on-one coaching and a peer learning community.

Don’t let them trick you into thinking you need overpriced educational materials.

This Is The Only Way To Guarantee New Habits

Habits drive personal growth, and new ventures drive new habits.

It’s hard to set new habits when you’re stuck in the same rut.

My friend Greg didn’t start interior decorating until he moved apartments. New space = new place to design.

My friend Michael didn’t become a cook until he got new cookware, spices, and a personal challenge for his birthday.

You’re not going to grow professionally and breathe easy financially until MTTB gives you a personal coach to egg you on.

Do you want to grow closer to your goals or shrink farther from them?

That’s what I thought.

Let’s get that process started now. Click here.

This Is The Best Way To Find New Music

Every once in a while, it’s time to get hip to some new tunes.

But if you’re like me, sometimes it’s hard to make the switch from familiar stuff to unfamiliar stuff.

And I quickly lose my motivation.

So here’s my time-tested trick:

Buy a new CD and stick it in my car’s system.

Every morning now, when I get in my car, without doing anything, I get bombarded by unsolicited new music… and I’m grateful for it!

All it took was a one-time purchase and plug-in.

If your financial life needs a new tune, it can be hard to start looking for a new job, especially in this economy. Searching classifieds… writing cover letters… scheduling interviews… not hearing back…

For just $49, we at MTTB will be the “CD” that kickstarts the change you need.

One of our executive coaches will walk you step-by-step through:
– opening a small business
– delegating your web design, funnel creation, phone sales, order fulfillment, customer service, and more!
