Sitting On The Next BIG Idea? (Last Chance)

April 23, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

In my last email, I told you a little about DU’s newest Strategic Alliance Partners, the guys over at Appzine Machine.

Today, I’d like to help you better understand why I was so excited when I reconnected with Len Wright…

As an entrepreneur, you’re always looking for new, innovative ways of driving more traffic and reaching more people.

But, if you’re like most entrepreneurs, the idea of driving more traffic usually includes feelings like “That’s a lot of work.” or “That’s going to cost me thousands of $$.”

Well, what if you could drive more traffic, reach a bigger audience, add new streams of in’come, and it not only wouldn’t cost you ANYTHING and could even provide you with more Influence and Credibility?

Would that be something you’d be interested in?

And — what if it meant that your business could instantly have a Mobile App that would make your prospects and customers see you as being on the cutting edge of technology, so that they’d want to do business with you over and over again?

Here’s the best part…

[DRUM ROLL PLEASE!]

What if it meant that you could engage your prospects and customeres for more than 48 minutes in a single visit?

(If you understand that s’ales are fueled by conversions, and that conversions are fueled by engagement, you understand how very VALUABLE it can be to engage anyone for more than a minute around your message.)

That’s what we’re really talking about here.

It’s a strategy that can let you cash in on the exploding mobile magazine turnkey business.

Golden nuggets right up until the end!

—> http://www.askggg.com/magazine

If you are serious about wanting a proven, “non-techy” way to make it big in mobile, THIS is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

You will have full access to the easy-to-use toolkit to build, run and manage your mobile business.

Plus, you’ll get the EXACT system (used by the best mobile publishers in the industry) to score more traffic

and more monthly in’come (both from se’lling whatever you currently offer as well as the added in’come streams this will give you).

Imagine waking up tomorrow and having an entire turnkey solution to bringing in THOUSANDS of highly targeted customers in your market, through your brand new, highly desirable Digital Magazine, delivered through your brand new mobile app in a way that would let you go out and live whatever lifestyle you’ve been dreaming about…

what could be better?

This is your chance to turbo-charge your success in the mobile market AND change your lifestyle forever.

HUGE Game-Changer For You (Video)

April 22, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

A few weeks ago, I reconnected with someone that I hadn’t talked to in quite some time.  He had emailed me with a subject line that read “Hi, Gina. Still in the JV Game?”

At the time, I think he was really asking if I was still in the JV Brokering business.  But what came out of our re-connecting is SO MUCH bigger than what would have happened had I been willing to broker a JV for him!

His name is Len Wright and he and his partners have become not just JV Partners of DirectionsU, but truly a Strategic Alliance with DU.

We will be doing a LOT of work with Len and his partners for the next few years and I wanted you to get a chance to hear about it first!

So, I’ve asked them to create a For a very short “MUST-SEE” business altering video just for you.

When you watch it, you’ll find that they are peeling back the curtain of a turnkey mobile publishing business they discovered which generates massive leads and mints mo’ney for the lucky few who know about it.

The best part?

You can run this highly lucrative business part-time from home, in your pajamas!

(It’s a true “freedom & lifestyle” piece for your business.)

And already, people are making $100,000 or more per year – and it’s growing exponentially in terms of f’ree traffic and monthly paying customers.

Watch it now at:

—> http://www.askggg.com/magazine

I’ve convinced them to show you the “big numbers” and the “behind the scenes” of this exploding mobile market, and show you EXACTLY how you can take advantage of this current mega-trend.

If you’ve ever dreamt of striking it big, but had no idea how, then this is what you need to watch.

This special training video will only be around for a few days, so be sure to check it out ASAP so you don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

COMING SOON! Your Brand New Outlook…

April 17, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

Recently, my partner, Jack Humphrey, said to me:

“I’ve sold millions and millions in memberships, courses, consulting, services, and affiliate products in my 16 years in business.

“But none of it compares to what I’m doing now!”

When someone says that to you, you can’t help but ask one simple question…

Why do you think that is true?

Jack went on to explain that in the past, big things happened ONLY when he had a new fancy tool in his toolbox that his customers didn’t have.  But this time, he’s using the same tech as any average person with an online business: Wordpress, some plugins, social media, email list service…the usual stuff everyone has.

So what “secret ability” has Jack saying that nothing he’s done in the past compares to what he’s doing now?  What “secret ingredient” does Jack have that you may not?

– It’s not software.

– It’s not a massive list (Jack’s main list is only 8,000… tiny compared to the lists our JV partners have.)

– It’s not some Golden Goose, top-secret, insider knowledge.

– Jack’s not special, nor was he born with super-powers of persuasion.

What’s working for Jack in a VERY big way is all in his head!

It’s all explained in great detail on the next page. But before you click the link below, Jack wanted you to take this with you as a special $150 gift from him (and me too!):

SPECIAL CODE–> mindset2014

That code is actually worth $150.  Learn Jack’s “big secret” and take your $150 code with you.  It can change your life like it’s changed Jack’s, mine, and many others already!

We would LOVE to have it change your life as well!

URGENT: How to Make More $$ in Your Business…

April 10, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

Every single day, my partner, Jack Humphrey, and I hear entrepreneurs like you asking the same questions.

Questions like…

*  How do you make more $$ in your business?  (Often, the person asking the question thinks that what they really want is a way that can even drive traffic on autopilot!)

*  How do you get better conversion from your existing traffic

*  How do you get your existing customers to b’uy over and over again

*  How do you build a bigger list (again, what’s really being asked is “How do I make more $$?)

Often times, what people are really asking are these “you don’t know what you don’t know questions”…

*  How to become the “Go To” Expert in Your Niche

*  How to become the Influencer that your audience seeks out over and over again

*  How to target your market so that you reach the Right Audience, with the Right Message, at the Right Time

*  How to plan your business strategically so that you maximize your pro’fits

Every time we get asked these questions, we realize that the person asking the question THINKS they want one thing but what they really NEED is quite another.

Which is what prompted me to ask you a VERY important question…

… Did you know that you can have all the right tools for your business and still fail miserably?

In fact, did you realize that you could have literally MILLIONS of visitors coming to your website and still not make a single dime from them?

While I could tell you the one thing that really WILL make a HUGE difference in the $$ in your business, I doubt you’d even believe me when you heard the answer!

(Ok — I’ll give it a try — you need a better Strategy!  Did that help?)

The reason why you’re likely to think that all you need is the RIGHT:

*  Tool
*  Traffic
*  S’ales Page
*  List
*  etc.

is because what you REALLY, REALLY need — the one thing that is the CORE of a successful business is (drum roll please!)…

MINDSET!

Without Mindset, no amount of training or tools or resources will help you!

Yet, most people are never taught this when they are taking business training of any kind!

Why is it that most business training — even most formal education programs — skip over this one essential, CRUCIAL ingredient?

Well, it’s because there are so many facets to it!

In order to have the RIGHT Mindset, you need to understand:

*  Goal Setting

*  Your Personality Style and how it effects your productivity, efficiency, and communication (with customers, JV Partners, even your team!)

*  Your Purpose (identifying what it is and how you live it through your business)

*  Why it’s important to SERVE instead of SELL and what it means to “strategically monetize” your service

*  Why the Universal Laws (including the Law of Attraction, the Law of Reciprocity, etc.) are SO important to making more $$ in your business

*  What underlying beliefs and fears might be keeping you in a state of Overwhelm, staying stuck, and what you can do to change it right this minute!

*  and MORE!

This is why we call the “Mindset Systems Workshop II” Virtual Webinar the MOST important event we hold for entrepreneurs like you each year!

Mindset is unequivocally the #1 thing any entrepreneur should tackle and master if you are going to really accomplish those big things you have on your list.

If you are feeling stuck or if the things you’ve tried to do with your business, online or offline, just keep breaking, not working, or otherwise holding you back, then you must make the time to get to the Mindset Workshop this Thursday 4/10 (from 1pm to 6pm eastern) and Friday 4/11 (from 9am to 6pm eastern).

—> http://www.askggg.com/msw2

Even if you can’t make the whole thing, get to what you can and listen to the replay of the rest of it as soon as you can!

Without the proper mindset, there would be no Richard Bransons in the world.  There wouldn’t be any Oprah Winfreys, Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs either.  And all of them have said something very similar on many occasions.

This is SO important that we even decided to reduce tuition for this Workshop to just $97 instead of the usual $247 for all of the other DU workshops.  We did it to make it possible for EVERYONE who is truly serious about making more $$ to join us for this VIRTUAL event!

Join us on this very important event where attendees’ lives will forever be changed.  You’ll watch it happening during the VIRTUAL workshop.  And you’ll feel it happening to you!

Get registered and we’ll see you on Thursday!

Without This There Would Be No Richard Branson…

April 8, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

Did you know that you can have all the right tools for your business and still fail miserably?

That without one crucial ingredient, no amount of training or tools or resources will help you?

And did you know that most people are never taught this when they are taking business training of any kind?

The Associate Dean of DirectionsU, Jack Humphrey, is a great example here…

Jack’s success in the first ten years in business could be thought of as “luck” as much as anything else.

Jack did big launches, large membership sites, books and courses that all sold great.  In fact, he made a lot of mo’ney doing all of that.

But never once did Jack do it with the right mindset.  The result was that he sacrificed far too much to accomplish all that he accomplished.

In the end, he was a burned-out shell of his former self in the bargain.  To get back into fighting shape as well as take his business and personal life to whole new levels of success, he had to work on his mindset.

That’s exactly what he’s been doing for the last year.

Once Jack started working on his Mindset, the World changed for him!  Things he “thought” were the reasons he couldn’t get back on top weren’t actually the cause of his slump.

The tools he was using weren’t the problem.  Technical stuff and “know-how” weren’t the problem either.

Once Jack got the Mindset thing down, all those problems vanished.  It was like technical stuff and tactical problems got out of the way once he had his “mindset mojo” firing on all cylinders!

This is why we call the “Mindset Systems Workshop II” Virtual Webinar the MOST important event we hold for entrepreneurs like you each year!

Mindset is unequivocally the #1 thing any entrepreneur should tackle and master if you are going to really

accomplish those big things you have on your list.

I know, because I’ve done it both ways.  One is far, far better than the other, believe me!

If you are feeling stuck or if the things you’ve tried to do with your business, online or offline, just keep breaking, not working, or otherwise holding you back, then you must make the time to get to the Mindset Workshop this Thursday 4/10 (from 1pm to 6pm eastern) and Friday 4/11 (from 9am to 6pm eastern).

URGENT: Influence, Power & Authority!

March 7, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

In the last few months, I’ve seen a huge increase in entrepreneurs really understand that success in business boils down to a few basic things…

Having Influence
Increasing Your Power
Being Seen As an Authority

There really is one strategy that increases your Influence, Power, and Authority more than any other…

Joint Ventures

If I were starting out all over again from scratch, with no product to se’ll, no list, no traffic, no anything, the first thing I would do would be to search out Joint Ventures.

I’d locate JV Partners who had stellar products I could offer and receive a commission.

Hopefully, those same JV Partners would be able to provide content for my website, for products they could help me create, etc.

If my new JV Partners could help me create content for a low end membership site (something between $15 and $30 per month), then I could get them to include 1 to 3 months of the membership site as a bonus whenever they sold their own products.

Within just a few weeks, I’d be in business!

My JV Partners would be driving my traffic.  Those visitors would all be BUYERS, not just subscribers.

Those visitors would be giving me their credit cards so that they could be billed on day 31, so revenues would be starting to come in.

And, through the content of the membership site, I would be offering my JV Partners products through my own affiliate link, helping to ensure that I increase my revenues and customer value even more.

The best part is that not only would my JV Partners be increasing my Power, Influence and Authority in my niche by making me shine as the creator of the membership site, but I would have enough free time to really enjoy my life as well!  I wouldn’t be a slave to my business day in and day out.

The only question is, where would I find these JV Partners?

They’re all going to be at Joint Venture Summit in Atlanta on March 11th to 13th, 2014!

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been looking for a way to increase traffic, sales, power, influence, and authority and really take your business to the next level, you want to connect to the RIGHT JV Partners in Atlanta as well!

Since it’s a little late to be booking a flight without a huge expense, we’ve setup a very special Livestream opportunity that makes it almost as good as being there in person because it’s designed to allow you to participate in the networking remotely!

There’s a Private Google+ Community just for you and the others participating in the Live Stream!  That way you can even get in on the Networking without leaving home as well!

—> http://www.askggg.com/jvslive

There’s even a very special $25,000 JV Challenge just for those in the LiveStream.  It allows you to get your JV Opportunity in front of ALL the participants in Atlanta and in the Livestream.  And, you might even win a mailing to 100’s of thousands of people, plus a fantastic program that helps you generate leads from LinkedIn (sponsored by Mojo Video Marketing), and a seat in the DirectionsU Mentoring Program for the next year!

NO EXCUSES! – Now You’ve GOT to “Be There”!

March 5, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

As you know, next week, DirectionsU (that means me and the DU Associate Dean, Jack Humphrey) are co-hosting the “Joint Venture Summit” in Atlanta, GA.

Jack and I are SO excited about the event that we made the DU theme for the 1st quarter of 2014 become “Joint Ventures and LEVERAGE“!

The response to the Joint Venture Summit has been phenomenal!

We have over 35 top-notch speakers joining us including legendary names like:

*  Alex Mandossian (he’s emceeing the event)

*  Bill Walsh (Bill and PowerTeam are sponsoring a $75,000 Joint Venture Challenge that will blow your socks off!)

*  Robert Allen (who will be sharing the secret of how he built a Billion $$ Empire using JV’s)

*  Joel Comm

*  Russ Whitney (Founder of the first educational business in the Real Estate Investing arena to go public)

*  E. Brian Rose & Bryan Zimmerman (Co-Founders of JVZoo.com)

*  Mike Filsaime (the “Michael Jordan of Internet Marketing”)

*  Spike Humer (Former COO of the Abraham Group – Jay Abraham’s company)

*  Matt Bacak (Master of List Building)

*  Dave VanHoose (Co-Founder 7-Figure Speaking Empire)

*  Just to name a few!

Speakers have literally been coming out of the woodwork — really pushing hard to get stage time at THIS event!

Does that tell you anything?

So, you can imagine how sad it’s made me to get emails from people all over the world, asking if there was any way that they could participate in the Joint Venture Summit without having to spend thousands to fly there from overseas.

I went to Mark to tell him that we just had to find a way to let EVERYONE interested in using Joint Ventures to grow their business participate in this event…

But, originally, he didn’t want to do it, because the live experience is so much more valuable…

After weeks of cajoling, and finally outright PUSHING, Mark finally succumbed, though, and we can now officially invite you to participate in the…

Joint Venture Summit LIVE Stream!

That’s right, you heard it here first — you can now attend Joint Venture Summit on March 11th through 13th without ever leaving home!

In fact, I’m even setting up a Private Google+ Community just for you and the others participating in the Live Stream!  That way you can even get in on the Networking without leaving home as well!

Think You’ve Had It Rough?

In my vast experience of marketing, (and just life in general), I was pretty sure I had heard it all. This however, totally floored even me!

I just got off the phone with “Legendary Consultant” David Preston. Like everyone else, I thought he had been gone from the internet because he was working on larger corporate clients and joint ventures.  He’s a true master at that sort of stuff.

If you don’t remember David, he actually started the entire “offline consulting craze” with the publication of Offline Goldmine way back in 2008. (Yep, you can blame him for all this!)

That book was the first ever published showing internet marketers exactly how to start working with local business owners the right way, and was an immediate runaway best seller.

It turns out that David has not been working at all for almost two years!

The reason he’s not been working, and the events surrounding it, is an almost unbelievable story. I said almost because I know him personally…

Here’s a short list of where he’s been and what has transpired in that time:

In August of 2012 he was diagnosed with HCC cancer. 92% fatality rate according to the Doctors. Chemo would add some time, but not much.

He underwent the chemo treatments and started a totally natural approach as well, and 1 1/2 years later he is now completely cancer free.  Like me, he’s truly experienced a MIRACLE!

During this time however he lost everything. When I say everything, I  literally mean everything!

The medical expenses as you can imagine were staggering, coupled with the fact that his wife of over a dozen years decided that she didn’t want to be with him in that condition.

No kidding, she left without telling him and took everything she was able too! That was unbelievable to me since I knew he had taken care of her through several spinal surgeries :-(

So now, he’s starting completely over from scratch.

How many people do you know who would even survived through all that, and he’s got a great attitude about everything to boot!

I asked him point blank….what are you going to do to start all over?

His answer made perfect sense to me, and I’m sure it will to you too.

He’s starting to set up local workshops for business owners. That’s how he got started in local consulting so it makes sense to start with something that you already know WORKS!

—> http://www.askggg.com/cashcowworkshop

I asked him if he was ever going to re-release his “Ca’sh Cow Workshops system” again to show others exactly how he’s getting hordes of clients with that, and finally talked him into making it available again!

David’s “C’ash Cow Workshops system” is responsible for many of my students becoming very successful very quickly. In fact, there are a few that are doing only that….even today and earning a serious living.

*Here’s the kicker*

David feels as if he’s been given another chance at life and really wants to help as many people become as succesful as possible, so he is offering to coach anyone who purchases the system at the regular price for *F’r.ee*!

Talk about really helping people, that’s way beyond what I expected!

The problem though, is that I could only get him to agree to sell six of these special packages per month because of his personal time involved.

Once those six are sold he is going to disable the payment button until the following month.

—> http://www.askggg.com/cashcowworkshop

This is a phenominal product and is responsible for many people’s offline consulting success without any coaching. I can’t imagine how much more success you would have with a true legend helping you set it all up!

I’ve personally been through this program and I can tell you first hand that it’s one of THE BEST trainings you’ll find — at ANY pr’ice! — on how to succeed as a Local Marketing Consultant!

Hopefully the six slots won’t be sold by the time you get this, but as you can imagine I’m certain they won’t last long.

Hurry over to:

—> http://www.askggg.com/cashcowworkshop

and watch the video I had him make for you.  Then get this before anyone else finds out about it!

Right now you, me and David are the only people who know about this so take advantage of his generosity. I mean *Fr’e..e* coaching from David himself? That should be a complete no-brainer…

To Your Abundant Offline Consulting Success!

P.S.  Bill and I have known David for at least the last 5 years.  This is a guy who not only REALLY knows his stuff, but is an amazing teacher as well!  That’s why he was one of my partners in The Joint Venture University, a program that taught folks how to broker joint ventures both offline and online.  If you’ve been struggling to find a way to succeed as an offline marketing consultant, there is no one better for you to work with than David Preston!  Get this before he comes to his senses and prices it at a level that it deserves!

We’ll Promote You Till The Ends Of the Earth!

How would you like people with big lists, huge numbers of subscribers, and those with large communities to say to you…

We’ll Promote You Till The Ends Of the Earth!

On, Monday, 2/24/2014, I’m a guest on a very Special Training with my friend, Mark Harris…

On it, we’ll show you how to do just that!

To Learn more about this advanced partnering strategy, or to register for the training, at no charge to you:

—>  http://www.askggg.com/contentjvs

This training will teach you more about what I call “Integration Marketing”.

“Integration Marketing” is a term coined by Mark Joyner about 10 years ago.  It describes a VERY different approach to Joint Ventures than what you’ve probably been thinking about…

Most internet marketers hear “Joint Venture” and immediately think about the kind of JV where “I mail for you.  You mail for me.”

And while that kind of joint venture has made millions for people, it’s not a very effective strategy when you’re just starting out and you don’t have a very big list, you don’t really have much to se’ll yet, and you haven’t quite figured out how to talk in the voice of an expert.

With Integration Marketing (what my friend, Mark Harris, calls “Content JV’s”), you don’t need ANY list to rake in huge results!

You don’t need to have the voice of expert yet because you borrow the expertise of other people to build your own!

The best part is that getting a JV Partner to say YES! to your opportunity gets SO MUCH easier because you’re simply helping your partner to get more of what they already want… Influence, Authority, and Customers!

Join us for this jam-packed training and learn exactly why YOU need to be using Content JV’s right this very minute to make 2014 your best year EVER!

The Future Of Marketing… Join Us!

February 19, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

For the last 6 weeks, my messages to you have focused on this quarter’s theme at DirectionsU.com… Joint Ventures.

Why would we devote 3 whole months to talking about JV’s?

Because it deserves at LEAST that much attention (maybe even more!) in your business and your life.

You see, JV’s are THE KEY to getting maximum LEVERAGE in your life and business.

In other words, JV’s allow you to work less, get WAY bigger results monetarily, faster than ANYTHING else you can do!

In fact, when you know how to use JV’s, you can actually stop doing LOTS of things that you’re probably doing right now. Can you imagine:

* NO MORE blogging!
* NO MORE SEO!
* NO MORE figuring out how to drive traffic!
* NO MORE figuring out how to build your list!

Instead, you simply find those people that already have the traffic, the list, and the search engine rankings and get them to WILLINGLY share their asset with you!

It really can be that EASY when you have the RIGHT SYSTEM in place.

So how can you figure out what that system looks like?

Join us for 2 incredible free trainings on how you can profit using strategic partnering, affiliates, and Joint Ventures to build your business…

Are You Stressed, Feeling Alone From Alzheimer’s Caregiving?

February 4, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Directions University

I know that my posts usually have something to do with marketing or building a business strategically.

However, there are times when I am compelled to share with you something being done by one of the DirectionsU Bachelor’s Students and this is one of those times…

Dr. Ina Gilmore, “The Knitting Doctor” and Founder of CaregivingWithPurpose.com, is getting ready to open the doors to the 2014 Alzheimer’s Telesummit.

CaregivingWithPurpose.com has been named one of the Top 25 Alzheimer’s Blogs in the WORLD for both 2012 and 2013.  It’s also finished in the Top 20 Health Blogs of both 2012 and 2013 as well.

That means that if for no other reason than to study a fantastic example of marketing, you’ll want to check out the Alzheimer’s Summit 2014 at:

—> http://www.askggg.com/alzheimers

But there are a few other reasons for you to check it out as well…

Are you an Alzheimer’s caregiver or know one struggling daily?

Caregiving can be the best thing you ever do for another. It can also be the hardest thing you’ll ever do. You can get so involved in giving care that your own wants and needs take a back seat, often ignored.

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia can be additionally challenging and isolating.

Additionally, there’s a social stigma too often attached to Alzheimer’s and other dementias. People often are uncomfortable around someone with dementia. Even talking about dementia and the changes is brings can be upsetting and embarrassing.

Caregivers get included in this isolation due to the disease itself, the caregiving and the lack of time for a social life.

The causes of isolation are multiple and often chronic, easily going on for years.

If you think this will not affect you, consider this…

*  More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s

*  Alzheimer’s is now the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.

*  1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

It’s likely you will know someone with Alzheimers or another dementia, their caregivers or become a caregiver yourself.

That’s why I’m delighted to tell you about this important telesummit February 1- through 14, 2014 by one of my DU students, Ina Gilmore MD. It’s f’re’e and available online or by phone. No travel involved! Replays will be available if you can’t make the sessions live.

—> http://www.askggg.com/alzheimers

Dr. Ina helps caregivers, especially those caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. She knows dementia caregiving, having been “in the trenches” as both a professional and family caregiver.

She nearly lost her health while caring for her elderly mother, Clara who had cerebrovascular dementia. It has many symptoms and signs in common with Alzheimer’s. Dr. Ina understands the sacrifices caregivers and their families make and knows simple steps help you move from dragging yourself through each day… into THRIVING!

Dr. Ina’s telesummit, “Overcoming the Isolation of Alzheimer’s: Simple Solutions for Family and Professional Caregivers” is a place for experts in Alzheimer’s and other dementias to share their caregiving tips and solutions.

Wondering who will be in this telesummit?

The speakers include…

Lori La Bey, Recognized as the #1 Alzheimer’s Influencer by Sharecare and Dr. Oz, speaking on “Improving Dementia Care Through Economical & Global Collaborations”. She explains how Memory Cafes, The Purple Angel Project and Dementia Friendly Communities reduce the isolation of Alzheimer’s care.

James Creasy, Founder of JiminyWickets, a program using croquet to reduce the isolation of Alzheimer’s for both caregivers and patients.

Janet Edmunson, Inspirational Author and Speaker with over 30 years experience in health promotion. She cared for her husband Charles who fought a degenerative neurological disease. Janet will speak on the “Importance of Positive Emotions for Caregivers.” She uses science, personal stories of caring for her husband during his neurological illness, and practical activities to explore positive ways to get through this challenging life experience.

And 14 more!

This is your opportunity to connect with these Alzheimer’s experts and with other caregivers who understand the isolation and pain of giving care to someone with dementia.

You need this information, and it won’t cost you a dime.

Join us to discover the secrets of moving from stressed to blessed …; from isolated to nurtured …; from just surviving to THRIVING!

URGENT: Influence & Authority for YOU…

January 25, 2014 by Gina Gaudio-Graves  
Filed under Marketing Tips

Do you know what LEVERAGE means?

More important, do you know why people in the investment arena talk about LEVERAGE so much?

LEVERAGE refers to getting the biggest possible results with the least amount of effort in the shortest amount of time.

Here’s how the dictionary defines LEVERAGE:

lev•er•age

n., v. -aged, -ag•ing. n.

1. the action of a lever.

2. the mechanical advantage or power gained by using a lever.

3. power or ability to act effectively or to influence people.

4. the use of a small initial investment to gain a relatively high return

5. to exert power or influence on.

6. to provide with leverage.

7. to speculate in (invested funds) by using leverage.

Look at the 3rd through the 7th item in that list.  Don’t all of those things sound like what you really want in your BUSINESS?

So, how can you gain power or the ability to act effectively to influence people?

The easiest way is to use Joint Ventures!

In fact, JV’s are the Ultimate Secret Weapon in business and marketing!

Do you REALLY understand the power of joint ventures, and strategic partnering?

You Will!

—> http://www.askggg.com/jvcall

Especially if you join us this week on Thursday, Jan. 30th and Friday, Jan. 31st for the VIRTUAL Joint Venture Systems Workshop II.

On this 1 1/2 day LIVE Training, you’ll learn:

*  Why Joint Ventures are your EASY Button

*  Where to find Ideal JV Partners

*  How to approach JV Partners and get them to WILLINGLY work with you

*  The difference between a Joint Venture and a Strategic Alliance and when to use each one

*  The various ways of using JV’s including Traffic JV’s, Product Launch JV’s, Product Creation JV’s, and Hybrid JV’s (combining an offline business with an online business)

*  and MUCH more!

When you attend the JV Systems Workshop, you’ll ultimately not only learn “Why Joint Ventures Are The Future of Marketing” but you’ll also learn step-by-step how to truly apply and use Joint Ventures in YOUR business right away!
