IMPORTANT: These are companies that I have had personal experience with and resources I have used or currently use. I am including them here for two reasons: One, to make money – hey I am in business just like you. Second, and more importantly, to help you achieve your goals quicker, easier and with less stress. MY goal is to help transform your business and improve your life. I believe the right tools can help make that happen.
WEBSITE HOSTING & BLOGGING TOOLS
- HOSTMONSTER: All of my websites are hosted on Hostmonster. It is super-easy to use and has excellent customer service.
- OPTIMIZE PRESS: This site was built with OptimizePress. It’s easy to use software for building any type of website. One of the best things there are a LOT of smart folks who know how to use this software and can build a site for you quickly and cheaply. You don’t make money by building websites. Hire a pro and do what you do best.
CRM and Email Marketing
- INFUSIONSOFT:I’ve been an InfusionSoft user since it’s inception. This software gives you everything you need to run your business including: email broadcasting, autoresponders, shopping carts, integrated online & offline campaigns, affiliate program, list segmentation, marketing automation and so much more. My entire business runs on InfusionSoft. It will free up your time and make your life so much easier.
- AWEBER: If you don’t need a robust CRM and are just looking for an extremely reliable software for email marketing, Aweber is what you want. This is also very easy to use. (Notice a trend here? I’m not a “techie” and need simple tools that get the job done.) Getting your emails delivered to your prospects, customers, clients and patients is obviously mission critical. Aweber does that for you.
MARKETING & LEAD GENERATION
- MAGNETIC MARKETING SYSTEM & TOOLKIT: The original version of this program transformed my life and that is not an exaggeration. If you want to end cold calling grunt work, sell at prices higher than your competitors, with zero price resistance (raise your profits now!), create a flood of new customers create “Irresistible Offers” that magnetically attract past and new customers like a porch light attracts a swarm of bugs, create a fast Cash Flow Surge stop being an advertising victim; stop wasting money on advertising you can’t hold accountable and switch from hit-or-miss to a “system” for attracting a steady stream of buyers then the Magnetic Marketing System is the answer. Sure, I’m biased because I was instrumental in creating the newest version of this program with my mentor, Dan Kennedy but I’m telling ya, this is a must-have program for every business owner.
- MAGNETIC MARKETING NEWSLETTER & MEMBERSHIP: If you agree that one of the keys to your success is staying on top of what’s working now when it comes to marketing your business, then I encourage you to take a 100% risk-free test drive of this membership. You receive a cutting edge monthly members-only newsletter, access to a members-only website (where business owners share ideas and solve problems), a monthly interview with a successful member where you will learn step-by-step strategies you can immediately apply, free trainings and a complimentary ticket to the Magnetic Marketing Fast-Start Implementation Bootcamp (a $497 value) that I personally conduct. Check it out here.
BOOKS THAT HAVE POSITIVELY IMPACTED MY BUSINESS & LIFE
- Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny!

Don’t read this book, do the exercises it contains and you will improve your life in every way possible.
- Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. This amazing book that is changing my thinking on many, many levels. It's one of those books that hits you upside the head and makes you think deeply about your life and your business.

- The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM) "This is a must read and it's the reason I've started getting up at 5:00 a.m. You don’t have to get up that early but if you want to have a real personal and business transformation, then I can’t recommend highly enough that you follow this amazing routine.
- 7 Strategies for Wealth & Happiness: Power Ideas from America's Foremost Business Philosopher. Other than my incredible parents, there were two mentors who had the greatest positive impact on my life one of them was the author of this book, Jim Rohn. (The other was marketing genius Dan Kennedy). This is a short, easy-to-read book that will help you get the life you desire.
- Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle. Also by Mr. Rohn, this book lays out the foundation of what it truly means to be successful in all aspects of your life.
