You’re Fired

In Business Insider, Ivanka Trump was asked what bosses can do before they fire someone.

Her reply:

“You need to set measurable goals annually for people. And you need to articulate them very clearly.”

Oh damn.

That’s what happens when a girl has been a boss since the day she was born.

She is wrong.

Here is why.

In the 90’s, her dad nearly lost everything. The economy was in shambles. Nobody saw it coming. Even the great Donald was afraid that banks will take his house and shut down his businesses. He didn’t see it coming.

How can you set measurable goals?

Based on what?

Sure I can ask my magic eight ball, but let’s be real.

Bosses can’t predict the future of their companies.

Yet the somehow think they can tell you to close 5 clients by the end of the month.

Or else you’re fired.

This is why I hate bosses. They have been up there, sitting on their thrones for so long. They have no idea how it feels like to give your best. To bust your ass daily. And still fail because their whole business system wasn’t solid at all.

That is why you should stay away from bosses and jobs.

Just the fact you’ll have work with unrealistic expectations can doom you to a lifetime struggle, trying to satisfy impossible standards.

So what do you do?

You stop working for bosses.

You go to work for the person whose expectations you strive to exceed every day.

And who is that person?

None other than you.

Joseph Smith

P.S. Ivanka went on and said that communicating the goals beforehand, makes everything easier.

“Less subjective.”

“More objective.”


So when they fire you, they can feel good for their decision.

And you?

You’ll feel like a useless bum.

A bum who wasn’t good enough for them.

Think you deserve this kind of treatment?

You wouldn’t be receiving this message if you did.

Let Me Make You An Offer You Can’t Resist

How do you call a 32 years old waitress who decides to work overtime in order to make money for college?

I call her miss informed

Here’s what it’s all about.

The girl in question is my friend Lily. She has no idea what to do in life. At 32 she decides she wants to go to college. Why? Because, as she said “I want to increase my perceived value when I apply for jobs”.

She’s ready to go into debt just so she can get a college degree.

Add four years for her to get it and she’ll be 36.

With zero experience in her field.

Yet the boss will choose her over a guy or gal who is younger and more energetic?

I don’t think so.

So, in Godfather’s style, I told her “I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse.”

I informed her about the easy one up system and why I thought it beats her idea of a plan.

She can start immediately her own business.

She doesn’t have to work overtime – she can work on the business at her spare time.

Most importantly, she can be her own boss from day one and not have to interview for jobs when she’s 36.

And guess what?

She said yes.

And she’s loving every minute of it.

So what about you?

Have you ever felt at loss with what you’ll do in the future?

So lost that even going into debt for a college degree seemed like a decent idea?

If yes, be careful.

Don’t make a choice that you’ll regret for the rest of your life.

Instead, make a smart choice like Lily did.
Joseph Smith

P.S. Here’s a statistic for you from

In 2020, just 14% of this year’s college graduates have real jobs waiting.

The rest of them?

They will probably wait tables like Lily, and it’s better than nothing.

Still, is that what you want from life?

A “better than nothing” future?

How about a stress-free life?

Without feeling your financial stability shaking every passing day.

That’s a way better alternative.

The More I Train, The Luckier I Get

Gary Player is a legendary golfer, known for his work ethic and the quote below.

“The more I train, the luckier I get”

People are always astounded with his successes.

“Gary, how can you be so lucky?”

Old Gary just smiles and replies with his well-known quote.

Ain’t that nice?

Gary smiles because every time he did what his competitors weren’t willing to do.

They were at home, relaxing? Gary was on the field, honing his skills. They were sleeping until 10am? Gary was up at 5, doing pushups. They were buying the latest golf manual, promising to increase their drive easily overnight? Gary was following the basics that have worked for years.

Let’s switch gears now.

Gary and his competitors can be also seen online.

There are people like the competitors, thinking they can cheat the money making process.

They dream of riches with the push of a button. They snort when they hear “hard work” – their guru promised easiness. They hop on the latest opportunities because everyone else does the same.

People like Gary?

They focus on hard work at the fundamentals.

And lo and behold, according to their competitors, “they are so goddamn lucky!”.

If you think that people are just lucky, tough luck (pun intended).

But If you understand that you can increase your luck with hard work?

Then you my friend, have what it takes to become a winning player.

And I want you on my team.
Joseph Smith

P.S. I’ll never forget when old Gary won the U.S. Open.

He hit an incredible five-iron shot, right next to the pin, sunk it, and won the tournament.

The commentators said, “Gary, unbelievable, you got so lucky.”

You know his reply, right?

Gary is a real player of the success game.

If you get acid-reflux every time you hear about hard work, this isn’t for you.

But if you are a hard working player, I can help you also become a hard-winning one.

The Lie Celebrities Are Force-Feeding You

Kanye West recently canceled his tour.

Fans got mad.

Producers got even madder since they had refunds to give.

Kanye’s reasons?

Nobody knows.

He was on stage rapping and getting into the flow. Then, out of the blue, he stopped. He went on a tirade about Beyonce and Jay Z. The best part? He said that, had he voted, he would vote for Trump.

Fans started booing.

So Kanye, with his “zero profanity given” attitude, left the stage.

And you know what?

I love this attitude.

I love the kind of freedom Kanye has.

Even celebrities can be slaves to others.

Singers to their producers.

Αctors to their agents

They all have bosses and aren’t as free as you think.


Not him. He doesn’t rely on producers for his daily bread. He has taken the money he’s made throughout his career and invested them in businesses. That’s a smart man.

He no longer cares if he angers anyone.

He can do whatever he wants, because nobody can hold him hostage.

Boss of your own destiny, slave to none.

That’s the type of lifestyle you should develop.

If you have a boss, you’re a slave.

You can’t say or do what you want.

You are constantly living under the fear of replacement

Still, there are good news.

All you have to do is to switch from a “slave” lifestyle, to a “boss” lifestyle.


By being your own boss, and not relying on others.

Here’s how to do it.

Joseph Smith

P.S. I did a quick Wikipedia search for Kanye.

Philanthropist. Owner of a burger store chain. Record label producer. Creator of a company that will “pick up where Steve Jobs left off”. And a visionary who wants to recreate the music industry.

I don’t see him prostituting himself to a boss anytime soon.

Even better, I see him becoming even more successful as years go by.

Do you also want Kanye-like freedom?

Since you are in this newsletter, I know you do.

Why You Should Wake Up Earlier Every Day If You Want More Money

A subscriber asked me the following question:

“I’ve joined the Easy 1 Up Program and I still have my 9-5 job to pay the bills. But I’m too tired after work since I also commute for 2 hours. This gives me subpar results and I hate it. Anything I can do?”

You can do a lot.

But, I’m all about efficient actions.

So, I’ll give you the one tip of business advice that was a total game changer for me:

“The first hour of the day belongs to you. It doesn’t matter if you work a job, freelance, or you’re unemployed. If you invest in yourself this hour you will be free fast.”

I don’t remember where I read it but it was a big “aha”  for me.​

When you wake up one hour earlier every day, there two great things going on.

First, you have zero distractions because you wake up earlier than anybody else.

No Facebook messages, no noise from the street, no phone calls, nothing.


This silence allows you to get up and work for one whole hour on your business.

Next, and you’ll have to experience it, but your energy levels will be up first thing in the morning. With this energy increase, you’ll achieve more in one hour than 3-4 in the afternoon.

Is one hour too much?

Start with thirty minutes.

Hell, start with fifteen minutes.

But you owe it to yourself to squeeze a little time when you are at your best to work for your business.

It has helped me and countless other students increase our productivity.

And this is one just one solution of many I keep hidden in my treasure trove of financial solutions.

If you want more solutions, go here.

Joseph Smith

P.S. The one hour doesn’t seem like a lot.

And it’s not a lot.​

The magic lies in consistency.

The first hour of the first day is a small rock thrown down a snow hill.

As the days go by this hour becomes a huge snowball, ready to smash on your financial prison and give you freedom.

SUBJECT : How to Lose Weight Through Exercising



Can I let you in on a secret? Did you know that to lose weight successfully, you’ll need to burn more calories than you consume? “How do I achieve this?” you might wonder. The answer, exercise! Although a lot of people might argue that exercise is not enough for weight loss alone, it is essential to note that exercise helps to lower the risk for many diseases such as diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, and heart diseases as well as some cancers. Exercise is also vital for the mind, and it helps to de-stress and unwind.

Our bodies have a certain number of fat cells and will remain unchanged if the calories we consume equal the ones we utilize every day. Consume more calories than you use, and the size of your fat cells increases. Burn extra calories, and the size of your fat cells decreases. It’s as simple as that!

Now, here are a few tips you need to know when exercising to trim that fat.

  • Do Cardio
    It is known that you can elevate your rate of metabolism for 24 hours after exercising by adding one feature to your exercise regimen: intervals. All you need to do is inject brief periods of intense effort into your aerobic activity (running, walking, cycling, and swimming). These regular bursts of intensity reset your metabolism rate a little higher during your workout and take hours to slow down again. The more work you give your body to do, the more calories you burn
  • Work on Strength
    There is little you can do to the metabolic needs of your heart, kidneys, and liver as they demand energy non-stop. Your muscles, however, can have their metabolism altered. The more you exercise, the bigger they grow. And they will burn more calories and fat every time

We’ve put together a program that turns back the hand of time on your body, and it is selling out fast! Get yours now on and discover how to master both your mind and your body to achieve a truly desirable state of health. For more health studies and info check out Healthy And Happy Today

How To Think And Grow Rich

A thoughtful and provocative story.

You are familiar with the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.

It’s one of the best books on success ever written.

The late Andrew Carnegie made Napoleon Hill, a young journalist a great offer.

He promised he’ll help him interview 500 industrialists, entrepreneurs, and other successful people. It was Andrew’s belief that success is a matter of principles anyone can study and learn. And he wanted Hill to find them.

So Hill interviewed those 500 people, wrote Think and Grow Rich and the rest is history.

Even today, billionaires like Richard Branson and Mark Cuban consider it a must read.

Yet, there is a part of the story they don’t want you to know.

Napoleon Hill  went broke after a few years of writing the book.

He even put his typewriter on sale for 50 bucks.

What went wrong?

Are the principles of the book fake?


The principles are solid.

Yet Napoleon missed the most important ingredient for achieving financial success.

What’s that?

You should apply the principles, not just read them.

The title “Think and Grow Rich” gives the idea that just thinking is enough for getting rich.

This was the problem with Hill back then and with online wanterpreneurs today.

They’re misled by gurus, who preach that thinking is enough for success. Throw claims of quickness and easiness into the mix, and you have the typical scam.

Hey, we can’t help everyone.

There are people who are OK when others lie to them.

They join opportunities that look like bad news, ignore the reviews of others and go bankrupt.

Just because they equate doing anything with taking action towards their goals.

You can’t save them.

Since you’re reading this, I know you are nothing like that.

You don’t get an acid-reflux with the idea of taking action.

After all, you know it’s necessary for success.

You’re ready to start growing rich.

And i would love to have you on my team.
Joseph Smith

P.S. Here’s something you also didn’t know.

There’s was a less known fellow named Clement Stone.

He let Hill teach in one of his courses.


Clement had read Think and Grow Rich and applied it’s principles.

They helped him build a massive company making millions of profits every year.

So he felt sorry learning that the man responsible for the book which changed his life, was broke.

That’s the difference between action takers and action fakers – takers become make millions, fakers get charity.

If you have been action faking, you can end up like Hill.

And you will not be lucky enough to have a Clement Stone support you when that happens.

Take action and start relying on yourself.

The Two Step Formula For Enjoying Any Type Of Luxury Your Greedy Heart Desires

“If I ever make some money, I’ll visit him”.

I was chatting with my friend Maria yesterday and she dropped this little gem.

She’s put on ten pounds ever since I saw her and hates how her body looks.

So, I recommended a dietitian friend of mine, who’s awesome at slashing slabs of fat out of your body.

She can’t afford him and if she ever makes money, she’ll THEN set an appointment.


I shake my head with phrases like this.

“If I ever make money”.

You don’t say “if” when it comes to money.

You say “I’ll do X and this will make me money”.

Take for example Maria.

She has a day job and wants to invest in a service that improves her life. She doesn’t save any money. She has fixed income and expenses. If she can’t afford the service now, how will she afford it later?

She won’t.

Is there a better way to approach this?

Of course.

She’ll reduce her non-essential expenses. Things like watching a movie, takeaway food, and drinks are bombs to her income. With the money she’ll save she can join a decent opportunity like the One step up program. Then, with a little work she’ll create a hefty amount of extra cash, to use any way she wants.

It doesn’t get any simpler than this.

And it doesn’t have to be just her.

You already have something you want in mind.

Your current income prevents you from enjoying it.

Yet, you can enjoy any type of luxury you want with two smart choices.

Reducing unnecessary expenses is numero uno.

Numero dois is this.

Joseph Smith

P.S. I presented Maria with my solution and she liked it.

She wasn’t happy with the idea of cutting her expenses, yet she’s a smart gal.

When we grab drinks, she ends up drinking 3-4 glasses of wine.

It’s easy for her to cut this to 2 or even 1 glass.

This saves her $12-18 each week which she can use to invest in her business.

Maria understands the importance of thinking long-term.

What Do You Do When Everyone Online Rehashes The Same Ineffective Advice?

Since we’re both grownups, I want to rap about this thing going around the Internet.

It’s called marketing incest.

What’s that?

It goes like this:

A guru creates a product and sells it. Then, another guru, takes the product and recreates it in his own words. Finally, a third guru repeats the process and you end up purchasing this product.

All would be good if the information was solid.

The problem?

The guru who created the first product, had no idea what he was talking about.

So everyone ends up repeating advice that doesn’t work in the real world.

You know what I’m talking about.

* Spamming people on Facebook

* Cold calling strangers

* Buying the latest $10,000 software because it’s what makes everything easier

You’re too smart to fall for that.

Yet, as the incest goes on, gurus will give birth to even more bull crap in a shiny, new package. When something looks new you gotta try it. You can’t hold yourself. After all, it must work because it’s not the same old crap.

So what do you do?

You stay away from the Lannisters of internet marketing.

They’ll make you waste time, resources and even (spoiler alert) force your son to commit suicide.

Instead, you link arms with a team that doesn’t fall for bright, shiny objects.

They protect you and catapult you to victory.

Those teams are rare to find.

When you find them, you must join without a second thought.


Joseph Smith

P.S. Instead of joining the Lannisters of internet marketing, you can join the Starks.

Yes – we work hard.

Yes – we are the underdogs.

Yes – the whole world plots against us.

But when we put our mind into a goal we create success after success, prosper and live a free, independent life.

That Time I Went Blind


When I joined my first opportunity, I went blind.

Blind to logic.

Here’s what I mean.

Like a loyal member, I did everything they wanted me to do. That also meant following the standard script they give when you talk with people. I didn’t like it when I read it, yet said to myself:

“Hey, it’s a big company. So they’ll know what they’re talking about!”



It didn’t work as you can guess.

The worst part was my blindness to a simple, logical fact.

If you don’t like the script, nobody else will.

This is why I got weird stares every time I talked with people and even a couple “How stupid do you think I am?”.

I followed the script with religious devotion for five whole weeks.

Then I put it where it belonged – inside a garbage bin.

What did I do instead?

The complete opposite of everyone else.

Talking to people with sincerity, trying to see if they are a good fit for the opportunity and acting like a real human being.

This way I saved time and energy.

I started getting more sign ups than ever before.

Everything got into place.

That’s why I hate scripts – they don’t work and make you look like a monkey.

There are better ways and I’ve shed blood, sweat, and tears to discover them and polish them.

I’m not sharing them with everyone.

You can only get them only if you’re part of my time.

Today, I want to invite you in.

Joseph Smith

P.S. One other reason I hate scripts nowadays?

They’re written by people with no real life experience.

They philosophize and use scientific literature on mice to propose a “new angle”.

I prefer logic.

Would I punch you if you talked to me in this new angle? If yes, its out.

Still, it’s hard to understand what works and what doesn’t.

You can waste time and even get ridiculed as you try.

Why do this to yourself?
