WHO WANTS TO BE AN AUTHOR? Self-Publishing Empire is Here! :)

The #1 question I get is “Joe how do I write my own book, publish it, and sell tons of copies too?”

I remember when I started writing my first book in 2011, I Googled the same questions people are now asking me.. although I found ‘enough’ to get my book formatted and published, the cover was still ugly and I was selling next to no books.

Here we are 5 years later with:

-A sexy new cover and over 10,000 copies sold!

-A volunteer army of readers ranting and raving about the book.

-Readers buying bulk quantities to pass out to their friends and family.

-Hundreds of free copies sent out via giveaways that not only myself, but READERS have hosted as well!

I follow a ton of great authors and learn from each of them, but I have NEVER seen anything quite like this…

People in other companies come at me and say “Joe! You have an unfair advantage because of your book!!!”

…and you are absolutely right, the world is totally unfair sometimes… which is why I’ve been behind the scenes working on THIS:

I have leveled the playing field for ALL OF YOU! 😮

self-publishing empire joe stewart authorI no longer have the “unfair advantage” they speak of… here’s why:
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from self publishing my first book 5 yrs ago and turned it into an easy to read, 130 page self-publishing manual, that is affordable for EVERYONE!

I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on similar books, digital info products and live seminars.

I’ve flown from Florida, New York to LA so many times to learn from the best writers and publishers in the industry..

..I’m actually flying into NYC tomorrow for a GARY VEE event so I don’t just talk the talk here like most ‘online gurus’ do.. moral of the story is I didn’t want my tribe of readers to have to go thousands in debt like I did…

…or fly across the country to NYC & LA where the “power players” live… unless you love to fly of course! Go for it… 🙂

I did all of this so you can learn:

-The many benefits of self publishing your book vs traditional.

-How to not only craft your story, but how to tell it in your own words!

-Learn all about my publishing ‘system’ and why I use it so you can quickly AND easily publish books too!

But it doesn’t stop there!

-You’ll not only learn my most profitable book sales methods, but you’ll also learn how to build a volunteer army of readers who talk about your book to THEIR network, so you can sell 10X the amount of books!

By purchasing a paperback copy of ‘Self-Publishing Empire’ TODAY you’ll also get access to my top secret Facebook group where I’ll be adding screen share videos so you can look over my shoulder and see how to create your mind map, structure your book, all the way to completed. (Valued at $997)

From there I’ll show you my shortcut to write it in less than 2 weeks, even if you don’t want to write a book, I’ll show you how… without even writing it. Hint: I’m not talking about hiring a ghost writer or buying a PLR book either! (Valued at $497)

I’ll also share my best resources for:

-Getting low cost, YET high quality looking book covers done FAST! (Valued at $297)

-How to sell bulk quantities at a time instead of one by one. This tip alone increased book royalties by 5x! (Valued at $1,497)

-How to get your book royalties INSTANTLY deposited into your bank account instead of waiting 30-45 days! (Value? Priceless if you’re just starting out!)

-The Bonus Tips I added on pages 65-72 ALONE, saved me not only tens of thousands of dollars, but many many hours I wasted when I wrote my last book the SLOW way.. these tips are worth 100x the price you’ll pay today! (Valued at $1,799)

You’ll also receive all the bonus tips I mentioned above, access to the FB group where you can ask questions that I’ll be answering once a day, plus the screen share tutorials FREE with your order of Self-Publishing Empire today! (FAQ, Screen Share Tutorials & Bonuses valued at $997)

Total value? $6,084.

Author friends of mine DO NOT want me to do this!!!

They don’t want me to let our self-publishing system be opened to the public.

They told me to charge 5 figures, let alone the $6k mentioned above like a lot of ‘publishing experts’ do.. they also begged me to leave out all of the Bonus Tips you’ll find on pages 65-72.

As authors, we have enough competitors as it is…

…and I might be making a HUGE mistake by teaching you all my ‘Step 1 to Done’ publishing system… but here’s what I do know:

My life has changed SO MUCH for the better since my last book took off.

People now look at me differently, they talk to me with respect instead of looking down on me.

I went from being an outcast drug addict, who dropped out of high school, to being invited to hangout with social circles I would have NEVER been able to tap into. I have now hung out with most of my idols since publishing my first book and now this one.. sometimes they even call ME for advice!

At business events, people who used to walk past me now stop me for a photo and want me to sign a copy of my book they brought with.

I wake up everyday and login to Facebook or Instagram to see another smiling customer tag me in a selfie with my book!

I am not saying this to brag…

I am saying all this because I want all of YOU to experience this!

I don’t want to keep all of this knowledge to myself, and charge you guys thousands of dollars like most internet marketers do… they don’t care about you.. and they definitely don’t care about your success… they look at you and I with dollar signs over our heads and quite frankly, I’m sick of it… I know you are too!

With all that said, I’ll be letting paperback copies of

‘Self-Publishing Empire: How to Gain Authority, Grow Your Brand & Dominate the Market’ go for…

…less than $18.

joe stewart bulk book orders

I truly want to get this into as many hands as possible for the best price.

I know the knowledge and value inside is worth tens of thousands of dollars more than what I’m charging, so the $18 price tag will only last for the first 150 book orders, and then I WILL raise it!

I’m not sure how much yet, but I would definitely buy a copy (or 5) for $18 before I jack the price tag up..

Who do you know that has an epic blog, or writes the best Facebook statuses? Buy them a copy.

I am really REALLY excited as the weeks and months go on, to see each and every one of you guys blazing across social media… with your finished book, your entire online network ranting and raving about it!

I can’t describe the feeling, and I know most of you reading this letter and the book won’t take action and write one, but I sincerely hope each of you reading this write at least ONE book in your lifetime.

I say that because self-published books pay out for 70 years after you are dead!

So in my opinion, it is your duty and obligation to your kids or grand kids to write that best-seller you have deep within you… who knows, your book might not go best seller until long after you are gone!

Don’t wait, act TODAY before these 150 copies sell out and I raise the price.

They will sell FAST!

This book is highly anticipated.. people have been asking for YEARS… now begging and pleading for my next book… and the wait is officially over!

I am very proud of this book and the way it turned out, and I know you will feel the same way when you publish your first book here shortly!

See you on the other side, author! 😉

I Make a TON Of Mistakes.. I’ve Left Money On The Table.. It wasn’t cool.


For years I left 💰💰 on the table… I’m sure I still do some days but I’m doing my best & focusing on what pays my bills each month and more.. 👌

The first few years after my book came out, I would always drive people to Barnes & Noble’s site because I thought that looked WAY cooler than Amazon.. Just being honest. 😂😂

Little did I know that the royalties were less on their site compared to Amazon, 😱😱 and Amazon takes care of re-targetting & a bunch of other cool stuff I’m not good at just by sending people there.. and when people buy it with other books it shows up as “frequently bought together” etc. which helps..

I didn’t know about this until I got a mentor.. I asked questions.. I read books on how to sell more books & increase margins.. heck I learned how to pay myself more than Amazon royalties pay me each month.. more on that in another post (or book?) 👀👀

Moral of the story is: learn from your mistakes, find a mentor, ask questions, read the books, surrender your ego, humble yourself, take notes, attend the events, invest in yourself, not just money but sweat equity too.. pull your calculators out, make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck my friends!

Don’t let your ego get in the way like I did.. go accomplish everything you’ve always dreamed of!

Thanks for reading… leave your thoughts below.. have you ever made mistakes or left money on the table too?

What did you learn from it and did you fix the problems?

All My Friend’s Wrote Me Off…


Yes it’s true… 6 years ago when I started doing MLM all my friends wrote me off!

They said I’d be better off with a college degree so I can secure a good job. For awhile I would question myself… “Are they right? Is earning an income from home impossible? Is college and a career my only hope?”

Some days I wanted to give up, turn off my auto-ship and call it a day.. I would call my sponsor and tell him I quit.. the next thing I know he’s at my door delivering personal development books/CDs.

Little things like that kept me in the game: the amazing people I became friends with, this culture I felt I could grow with, and all the personal development that came along with it.

I started writing my book in 2011 & published it the next year. My friends wrote me off yet again, and told me to stop putting my heart and soul into something silly like this.

At that point though I was in too deep… there was no going back! I had invested far too many hours and dollars into my business, growing my network, traveling to promote my new book..

Here we are 4 years later.. all those same friends are tired of seeing people holding the book they once mocked.. asking for a free copy because they don’t get paid til next week.. silly isn’t it?

Moral of the story is, don’t give up!

If friends & family aren’t doubting you yet, you’re not working hard enough..

If friends aren’t calling you crazy and questioning you, you need to GO CRAZY!

Stay consistent on posting.. make the phone calls.. send the FB messages.. mail the samples.. speak on the conference calls.. host the events.. drive 3 hours for a one on one.. just do whatever it takes! Prove the naysayers wrong, don’t give them the satisfaction of seeing YOU quit!

Love you guys.. appreciate all that you do!

Remember the ‘social’ in social media…

Remember the ‘social’ in social media… it’s all about engaging with others.

Treating it like a pissing contest with your old sponsor, people who quit yo team, ex’s, or people in other companies doesn’t count as being social..

Instead just cheer your competitors on and get back to dominating!

Only post when you have something inspiring, important, or valuable to share w/everyone.. don’t just post to “get likes” or “generate a lead or sale” because people can smell desperation a mile away..

Remember folks: “People don’t care how much you know until they knows how much you care.” -So engage on their posts.. get to know them.. follow up w/them until you are blue in the face or they block you Lol..

That’s all I got! Until next time, enjoy this extra sexy Joe Stewart selfie! 😀

Also be sure to buy my book here!

WakeUpNow (WUN) Lawsuit Vs. Former CEO Kirby Cochran?

wakeupnow file $70 million dollar lawsuit against former CEO Kirby CochranAfter a post on the Behind MLM website titled- WakeUpNow file $70 million lawsuit against Kirby Cochran, I did some research on Google to see if I could find any other current news about Kirby Cochran or WakeUpNow.

On February 4th, 2015 Kirby Cochran filed for bankruptcy in Utah… how about that timing? Lol.

I also went to his brothers Facebook page to look for the post they were talking about in the article.

This was a public status that Gary Cochran posted on January 20th, 2015:

“What are brothers for?

I just read some outlandish lies and fraudulent posts that are being disseminated across the Internet that concern my brother, Kirby Cochran. It has not been my nature to respond to Internet behavior that borders on the obscene and criminal, but I can’t stand by and not refute the distorted information that is being posted about a person I respect and love – my brother Kirby Cochran.

I came across a post that states that Kirby and two other gentlemen who I know extremely well are “con men.” This is absolutely false. The article states that Kirby defrauded his previous business partners and companies out of millions of dollars. The person who wrote this malicious lie is referring to Kirby’s tenure as CEO of the network marketing company known as “WakeUpNow.”

Let me put the record straight. Kirby was in fact the CEO of that company and invested a great deal of his own money, and because of his vision I had also invested thousands of dollars myself. Kirby came to me and asked if I would be willing give a short-term loan to the company of almost $400,000 in September of 2014. Because of my knowledge of Kirby’s integrity and honesty, I agreed to loan the company $371,000 on a short-term basis. There is no way I would have loaned the company the money if I had known that other key management executives were planning on doing a takeover of the company and forcing Kirby out of the company. Even with a signed promissory note from WakeUpNow, the company continues to refuse to pay back one single penny. In my mind these individuals and WakeUpNow stole almost $400,000 of my money. As far as fraud and theft go, WakeUpNow need go no further than their front door.

Kirby has agreed to work with another company and use his expertise and skills to provide true opportunities for entrepreneurs across the globe. I for one have made the decision to join him in whatever business venture he takes. Over the past years I have watched and joined him as he created opportunities that improved my life and that of many of my friends. Kirby has helped to enhance my life both personally and financially. But I’m not alone as a person who has benefited from Kirby’s advice. I have a number of friends and associates who have all benefited greatly from the honest business practices of Kirby. And when you add the integrity of people like Dr. Michael Wach and the South American Entrepreneur, Adam Rosales, you have three honest men.

The dishonest people and their minions behind these slanderous and criminal statements should be ashamed of themselves. If I can’t state the truth and defend an honest man, what are brothers for?

Gary Cochran
A loving brother”

Now compare that post to the Behind MLM article… who is telling the truth?

I am sure we will all find out after the lawsuit and more comes to light. Just reading that was so crazy… because I met Kirby Cochran and Troy Dooly down in Miami, Florida in July of 2014. I can’t believe all of this happened… I mean I know there is always stuff going on behind the scenes from back door deals, to corporate espionage like this shit… but wow.

What are your thoughts on the whole thing?

So called ‘industry experts’ said that WakeUpNow wouldn’t last years ago… it is starting to look like with all of today’s reports, and almost all of WUN’s top earners stepping down, I highly doubt they are going to pull through.

I wish all of the WUN employees and IBO’s the best of luck… I know a lot of the IBO’s have joined new companies already **cough cough taken $$$ as a contract ** but I hope the little guys who weren’t offered these same deals can find a new network marketing company, and build it organically like the rest of us.

See you on the beaches of the world!

Took a Break from Blogging to Travel… Yeah I’m a Wussy, I know…

Hey what’s up readers? Yes I’m still here 🙂 I had a few people opt in to one of my contact forms asking if I was still blogging and active on this site, although I haven’t blogged since the end of July I am definitely still here! I spent the month of August traveling and didn’t spend too much time on my laptop… I ran all of my online business from my smartphone and outsourced the stuff I couldn’t do on my phone. So yeah, I’m back!

In the beginning of August I spent some time in the Fort Lauderdale-Miami area with some friends, which I don’t really consider “traveling” because I live a few hours north of Miami but still I was away from home doing business and networking down there with some cool cats.

Live from iheartradio Ultimate Pool Party, Miami FL

I was also down there at the end of June for the Iheartradio Ultimate Pool Party! What an awesome weekend… had VIP tickets so it was cool hanging poolside with a bunch of rich pricks and Nick Cannon. We got to see Lil Jon, Iggy, Neon Trees, MAGIC and Jenny from the block Jennifer Lopez perform… yeah it was pretty badass not gonna lie Lol.

The first week of August I flew up to Connecticut for a few days for the first time.. was very cool seeing all the hills and landscape etc it is so much different then Florida.

View from my friends pad in CT :)
View from my friends pad in CT 🙂


I stayed at a friends house in the hills of Hartford CT and they showed me around the area for a few days.

hiking hills of CT
Hiking thru the hills 🙂

My favorite part of the whole trip was just hiking a few miles with my headphones in through the hills in Middletown… yeah I’m easy to please.

I prefer the little things anyway.

On my last night there, their neighbors had all of the neighborhood over for an outdoor cook out with steak tips, some italian bread with mozzarella cheese on top (best thing ever) and of course expensive red wine!

Yeah I was staying with rich friends and they like their expensive wine.unnamed (3)

It was just cool sitting outdoors around the table under the stars and having dinner with a bunch of people I didn’t know… none of my neighbors in Florida really talk or do BBQ’s and stuff like that so it was nice to see people still get together and have dinner with each other.

After 5 days in Connecticut I flew back down to Florida for like 9 days before I was off to my next adventure in Los Angeles, California.

This was also my first time going to California let alone the west coast of the United States so yeah I was obviously pretty excited Lol. So I packed up my duffle bag yet again for a week in Los Angeles, my friend Jen was nice enough to drive me to Ft. Lauderdale Airport on August 20th so I could catch my flight… I had a long day ahead of me with a layover in Dallas before I finally landed in LAX at 4pm California time.

I finally made it there on time and stepped off the plane and on to the streets of L.A for the first time.

I met up with some friends who live in Los Angeles so they drove me to my hotel so I could check in and drop off all my stuff before we headed out to Long Beach for dinner at the Yard House… I was starving after flying around all day so I had a big ass ribeye with shrimp on the side… I deserved it 🙂 .

We didn’t do too much that night because I was pretty tired and I’m from Florida so they are 3 hours ahead of what I’m used to so I crashed pretty early for their time.

jimmy kimmel liveThe next day we all met up again and they drove me into the heart of Los Angeles where Hollywood BLVD, Beverly Hills and all the cool stuff is at… so that was pretty awesome.

We walked down Hollywood BLVD looking at all the stars and people dressed up as superheroes and cartoons Lol….

Then me being the tourist I am, I decided to pay the $35 and hop on one of those buses that drive you all around site seeing where they explain some of the history of the area.

They drive you through Beverly Hills, Hollywood hills and all the other cool spots so you can go ‘celebrity hunting’ lol although I didn’t see any celebrities on my trip… it’s okay I’m not star struck they are humans too, right?

The next day I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific to check out all the marine life there… really cool learning about all the animals, fish and other stuff they have. The penguins were so funny to watch swim around and waddle around lol penguins are badass.

This was where my trip went kinda downhill… I normally don’t write about the ‘negative’ going on in my life, but the last 2 days of my trip were pure hell.

I had horrible pain in my lower back (kidneys) but I didn’t want to go see a doctor out there or check into a hospital because my flight was 2 days away and I just had a fear of getting stuck out there. So my stubborn ass just sat around my hotel in horrible pain for the last 2 days while I waited for the day my flight left… I had no appetite and didn’t eat anything… lost a few pounds and really looked like crap Lol I wish I had a picture to post but I wasn’t taking selfies at the time.

flying over ft lauderdaleLuckily I found the strength to walk out of the hotel and find a cab and get to LAX and catch my flight.

It never hurt so much just to walk through an airport it’s usually an easy task… especially for someone young in their early 20’s like me… but I caught my first flight to Phoenix which connected to Ft. Lauderdale from there… that 4.5 hour flight was awful lol I was still in the worst pain of my life and I hate flying anyway so being on a plane for 4.5 hours didn’t help. (Flying over Ft. Lauderdale beach above.. What a view! 🙂 )

Just thankful that I made it home safe! I went home and went right to bed, I didn’t have the energy to go to the hospital that night. The next day I woke up and felt a lot better so instead of going to the hospital I just went to the local walk in clinic and they accepted my insurance (whewww…)

After some blood work and other tests they said I had a bad kidney infection… no wonder the lower back pain!

So they put me on the BRAT diet which is like bread, bananas, rice, apples and toast I think they said… so I had to stick to that for a week and drink tons of water everyday to flush out my kidneys. I’m doing a lot better now just taking my diet and health a lot more seriously… I stopped drinking coffee and alcohol and haven’t in weeks and I feel a lot better.

Anyways… I’ll post some of the pictures I took while I was out in Cali below… hope you guys enjoyed reading 🙂 Share some of your recent travel stories in the comments I would love to hear them!

From ‘Broke Pill Popper’ to Author & Successful Entrepreneur

popping pillsThinking back, it’s cool to see where I came from. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth, but I had a great childhood.

When I got introduced to entrepreneurship, I kept hearing the quote “You’re the average of the 5 people you hangout with the most.” At first it didn’t sink in, but the more & more I thought about it, I saw the truth. I was a drug addict at the time.

Every last dollar I had went to pot and pills, & when I ran out of money I would lie & steal to get my next fix. I take full responsibility for that & not looking for your sympathy, but back to that quote. The people I hung out w/ the most at the time were also broke drug addicts & liars, everything that I had become.

I had 2 choices: either learn how to make more money so I can sustain my drug habit or stop popping pills & take the small income I had to invest it in one of these online business things I kept seeing everywhere. I figured if I was making $3k+ per month I wouldn’t need drugs anymore… I could go to the mall, travel, or go do whatever I want and that this would keep me busy enough to stay away from drugs.

Boy was I wrong…

$3,000 a month came and now that my income more than doubled so did my drug use. Although I had learned the skill to get money deposited into my bank every Friday, I had failed to master my mindset.

I was emotionally attached to drugs and no matter how much money I made, the downward spiral would continue.

I finally got pulled over with friends one day and got searched by the cops. Good thing I only had a small bag of pot or I would have been facing serious time. Although I was LIVID that day, I am so happy it happened. I was placed on probation for a year and had to take a drug test every 2 weeks. Sometimes it’s really just mind over matter. How come I couldn’t just STOP when I knew enough was enough?

Why did I have to wait for a third party source like the police, or the fear of prison time to finally wake the fuck up? I’m not quite sure… but the moral of this story is we all have different backgrounds good and bad. Some people see my website or read my book and think ‘Wow overnight success, he’s lucky etc.” I remember saying I wanted to be an author and business owner while they saw me spending my whole paycheck on drugs… some laughed, others listened. But here I am. Funny how life works sometimes right?


Don’t give up, I believe in you.

Here’s to a Better Future…

dream bigEveryone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed of being somebody special, somebody big. Who hasn’t fantasized about being the one who hits the championship winning homer? Who hasn’t dreamed of being the homecoming queen? And how many times have we dreamed of being rich, or successful, or happy with our relationships?

Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirations. Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that – dreams. And our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.

This is a sad turn of events in our life. Instead of experiencing exciting adventures in self actualization, we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day just barely existing.

But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only we learned to aim higher.

The most common problem to setting goals is the word impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can’t do this. It’s too hard. It’s too impossible. No one can do this.

However, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in human accomplishment.

Remember that scientists were baffled when they took a look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said, it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly. Unfortunately for the bumble, bee no one has told it so. So fly it does.

On the other hand, some people suffer from dreaming totally outrageous dreams and not acting on them. The result? Broken dreams, and tattered aspirations.

If you limit yourself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you will never be able to break past what you deem impossible. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.impossible is nothing

Try this exercise. Take a piece of paper and write down some goals in your life. Under one header, list down things ‘you know you can do’. Under another header, write the things ‘you might be able to do.’ And under one more, list the things that that are ‘impossible for you to do.’

Now look at all the headers strive every day to accomplish the goals that are under things ‘you know you can do’. Check them when you are able to accomplish them. As you slowly are able to check all of your goals under that heading, try accomplishing the goals under the other header-the one that reads ‘you might be able to do.’

As of the items you wrote under things I could do are accomplished, you can move the goals that are under things that are ‘impossible for you to do’ to the list of things ‘you might be able to do.’

As you iterate through this process, you will find out that the goals you thought were impossible become easier to accomplish. And the impossible begin to seem possible after all.

You see, the technique here is not to limit your imagination. It is to aim high, and start working towards that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to set a goal that is truly unrealistic.

Those who just dream towards a goal without working hard end up disappointed and disillusioned.

On the other hand, if you told someone a hundred years ago that it was possible for man to be on the moon, they would laugh at you. If you had told them that you could send mail from here to the other side of the world in a few seconds, they would say you were out of your mind. But, through sheer desire and perseverance, these impossible dreams are now realities.

Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be had work and discipline. But take note that that 1% has to be a think-big dream, and not some easily accomplished one.

Ask any gym rat and he or she will tell you that there can be no gains unless you are put out of your comfort zone. Remember the saying, “No pain, no gain”? That is as true as it can be.

So dream on, friend!


Don’t get caught up with your perceived limitations.

Think big and work hard to attain those dreams. As you step up the ladder of progress, you will just about find out that the impossible has just become a little bit more possible.

I will see you on the beaches of the world…

Essential Success Skill: Self Observation Exercise

Self Observation 

From the Dictionary

self–ob·ser·va·tion noun \ˌself-ˌäb-sər-ˈvā-shən, -zər-\


1: introspection
2observation of one’s own appearance
Here’s a quote to start this post: “Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening.”

Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it’s painful… now I want you to do something and I want you to be totally honest with yourself. Until you know where you’re at, you cannot establish where you want to go. Every day is a new starting point, every week is a new starting point, every month is a new starting point it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, today is the starting point for what happens tomorrow.

self observationSelf Observation Exercise 

So I want you to get a tape recorder or use the recorder on your cell phone and  I want you to record yourself in 3 scenarios. In the first scenario I want you to imagine that you’re talking to somebody that you have an interest in, not somebody that you already have a relationship with or a relative, but somebody that you’re emotionally attracted to, somebody you would want to be in a relationship with etc. I just want you to have an imaginary conversation with that person, and I want you to record it for 3 minutes… just go with the flow there is no right or wrong things to say this is just an exercise.

I know it sounds weird but this is a great little technique I learned from one of my mentors and wanted to share it with you guys because this information could be very powerful to the right person.

Next scenario, I want you to do it as with you’re speaking to a multi-millionaire… how would you speak to somebody who’s worth $50 million dollars. Now I want you to record that 3 minute conversation with this wealthy entrepreneur. You set the stage, it could be at a restaurant, or after they speak at one of their seminars, whatever you want!

Third scenario, I want you to record your dialogue with somebody who offended you. Just record it, 3 minutes each. Same as the first two scenarios. Just let it flow and let it go, this isn’t you actually talking to that person and they will never hear it… most likely YOU will be the only person to ever hear these recordings so don’t worry about being perfect or sounding like a pro.

I would do this self observation exercise every other week because I know we all don’t have the time to do something like this everyday or once a week even. But as you do it more and more, go back and listen to your first few recordings and see how you mature and sound differently as time goes on.

The way you view yourself is more important then how others view YOU… one day I tried to pay my bills with other peoples opinions, and guess what… didn’t work. So don’t let peoples opinions of you bring you down, it is simply showing their true colors and that they have some type of insecurity they are trying to hide from you.

Don’t be afraid to look at yourself in the mirror from time to time… YOU are beautiful remember that! If you’re not happy with the way you look go get a haircut, start to exercise more or eat healthy. I have seen people totally transform themselves just by making a simple decision and taking daily consistent action.

Don’t just be YOU… be the BEST version of you at all times!

I hope you have enjoyed this post about self observation and how they way you look at yourself or even talk to yourself in your head can either make or break whatever you are trying to achieve!

Jstew’s Winter Blogging Break

Hey what’s going on my friends and fans!

Hope all is well with you…

santa claus model
Well hello! 🙂

I am just writing a quick blog post for you guys since I haven’t been active on my website for the past few weeks.

Every year I usually take most of December off (from blogging at least) to spend time with family and friends, get ready for Christmas and get all my shopping done early.

We’ll call it my “Winter Blogging Break.” 😉

Although this blog that you are currently on is well over a year old, I have had many other sites in the past.

Some are still here with us today, others are resting in peace :p haha

The point of that rant is that my blog traffic always drops during December


Check out this post by fellow blogger Jon Morrow.

What… would you rather me lie like a lot of online marketing ‘goo-roos’ and tell you I quadrupled my web traffic in the month of December and sell you a webinar explaining how I did it for $297?

People are busy this time of year. They have family from out of state in town, or they are traveling a lot themselves. Trying to get all their Christmas shopping done whether they shop on or their local Wal-Mart… they are busy, and don’t have time to do their normal Google searches where they find my blog or yours. 🙂

Just wanted to update everybody! I appreciate all the Facebook messages and replies on here asking me where I have been for these past 2 weeks… I am still here! Just taking a MUCH needed break.

Now don’t get it twisted, just because I took a break from blogging a few times per week doesn’t mean I took a break from my primary businesses. Business is booming. We are in the middle of a huge launch right now and our team has gone from 3 members to 63 in less than 2 weeks all with:

-No paid marketing

-No Blogging (obviously)

-No harassing friends & family

-No cold calling

-No shenanigans

So what have I been doing these past 2 weeks that caused our new business to BOOM?

-Updating my Facebook status

-Talking to people on Facebook chat

-Reading a book for 30 mins/1 hr per day and reading the news or my favorite blogs

Yes those 3 activities are far more profitable then chasing friends and family, blogging daily, cold calling people to invite them to your weird hotel meeting for a business opportunity.

If you want to connect with me and learn my Facebook Cash Secrets, add me as a friend and follow me here.

If you want some more information about the launch me and some millionaires have put together for the community, secure your spot here for FREE while you can!

I hope all of your Christmas shopping has been stress free so far! Are you spending too much time looking at price tags? Maybe you need to start a home business or e commerce site so money is no longer an issue.

Again, add me as friend in the link above and secure your spot with my new team… period.

Merry Christmas! Happy holidays! Enjoy this time of year!

Is Bitcoin “Too Big To Fail?” Regulators Worry About Money Laundering

bitcoin price soars
Bitcoin Price Soars

As Bitcoin becomes more popular day by day, regulators are getting worried about potential money laundering risks associated with this digital currency and its possible misuse by fraudsters to lure gullible investors into ‘e-ponzi’ schemes.

The Bitcoin Challenge 

Adding to the challenges posed by Bitcoin before the regulators, this e-currency is already being accepted by some online retailers in countries like the US, China and a few others, for various purposes including pizza delivery.

Hardly three years into existence, Bitcoin has already become the world’s most expensive currency with a per unit value of over USD 1,000 or about Rs 63,000, and it is posing all possible questions to regulators in India — whether to regulate it or not, who should do it, what should be the norms, how to regulate etc.

Those looking at this new phenomenon include almost all financial sector regulators as also agencies mandated to handle economic crimes, such as RBI, Sebi and various agencies under the Finance Ministry, a senior official said.

When contacted, an RBI spokesperson said, “As of now we don’t regulate bitcoins, but are observing developments.”

While regulators are tight-lipped about their plan of action, a senior official said that one possible way forward can be following the US, where authorities have decided to subject bitcoins to money laundering rules applicable to all other financial transactions in the country.

Regulators are also looking into claims being made by some entities of being registered bitcoin exchange providers, although they might have merely registered as a company with the Registrar of Companies with some generic business purposes.

Sources said that regulatory and enforcement authorities here are very much concerned about potential money laundering risks emanating from growing use of bitcoins. To make the things worse, this virtual currency has become the latest tool adopted by fraudsters who are promoting bitcoins as the next big investment products with unlimited returns.

A few complaints have already poured in about bitcoins being used by some operators in certain new-age and e-versions of multi-level marketing or ponzi schemes.

Regulators fear that this new phenomenon can give rise to a new kind of illegal investment schemes that could be very difficult to track and clamp down. This is because there is almost zero physical activity when dealing in bitcoins and nearly all transactions take place in the electronic format.

Being an ‘open source’ product, bitcoin can be mined by anyone through a complex computer software through solutions shared on an entire network, although the process is complex and such ‘mining’ can be done only on very powerful computers.

The huge surge in the valuation of bitcoins, from little over USD 200 to well past USD 1,000 during the last month, has certainly added to their investment profile and people are also getting attracted to it in India, which already has a few significant players offering bitcoin exchange service online in lieu of rupee or other currencies.

The collapse of another digital currency operator Liberty Reserve after charges of money laundering, as also the fall of a few other smaller digital currency exchanges in different parts of the world, have added to the concerns of regulators.

The US authorities have charged Liberty Reserve of operating as a global banker for criminals and of laundering over USD six billion of crime proceeds. Incorporated in 2006, it had over a million users, including about one-fifth in the US.

Bitcoin came into existence in 2009 and the current number of bitcoin units generated so far stands at about 12 million. However, only a small number of bitcoins are being used for real commercial and retail purposes and a vast majority of exchanges are taking place due to speculative investment purposes.

Besides, the US authorities have already come across a few cases of bitcoin being used for illegal activity. As Bitcoin becomes more popular day by day, regulators are getting worried about potential money laundering risks associated with this digital currency and its possible misuse by fraudsters to lure gullible investors into ‘e-ponzi’ schemes.

Active Income vs Residual Income: Which Do YOU Prefer?

hump day

Hey what’s going on readers!?

Hope everybody is having an awesome Hump Day 😉

This is probably the longest I have gone without writing a blog post since I started this site just over a year ago.

I am usually pretty prompt and do my best to blog daily if not a few times a week.

But with the holidays, traveling, and visiting family… things get pretty hectic and something that is normally as simple as firing up my laptop and writing a post, is now heading to a Starbucks or McDonalds just so I can ‘steal’ their Wifi for a few hours.

Active Income or Residual Income: The Choice is YOURS!

That is what I love about residual income though!

Although I wasn’t able to use my laptop the past month (or more? Who knows…) I still got checks in the mail from work that I did close to 2 years ago. Can you imagine walking into your job and asking your boss for another check from some project you did last year? How about 2 years ago?

I highly doubt he/she is gonna cut you a check… because jobs payout in what’s called active income. You show up, do what they say for whatever you are scheduled that week whether its 20-40 hours, and they pay you based on the amount of hours you were punched in for x your hourly wage. Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve never met anybody who ever got rich in this business model. Sure, you can climb to the top of the corporate ladder and hey you might get to 6 figures or even multiple 6 figures if you are with that company for decades devoting 40+ hours per week to them.

What about Residual Income Though?

rock star incomeEvery multi-millionaire that I have ever had the pleasure to have coffee, lunch or do business with, have all gotten wealthy by creating residual income streams. So what is residual income anyway?

Think of rock stars, athletes, authors like myself, or network marketers.

Rock stars and authors write a song or book one time… they record it, master it and upload it to a CD or Itunes where it is now available to purchase until the end of the time.

Use me for example, I wrote my first book over a year ago. I haven’t edited it, or worked very hard to make sales of this book. I simply wrote it, published it, marketed it for a few months to get the title and cover out there, and now people purchase it day after day and I get a check in the mail each and every month whether I think about that book ever again. Same with rock stars, look at Elvis. He’s been dead for years but I guarantee you his family members still get royalties every month from Elvis CD’s, posters, apparel you name it… being sold month after month.

You see, rich people don’t have jobs.

They build networks.

They build distribution channels.

They build membership websites or shopping clubs like Costco or USA Association.

This way, they build the network, distributor base, or membership site ONE TIME and one time only… and people continue to purchase their products and services month after month if the products/service are as good as they say.

This business model is what attracted me to the controversial multi-level marketing industry. Think about it, if I was never approached to join Amway a few years ago, I probably wouldn’t be sitting here writing this post.

I probably wouldn’t have published my own book last year.

I would probably be broke, burnt out, and stuck in my job for another 30-40 years…

…but I decided to make a decision.

If all these multi-millionaires followed a system, did the work consistently and never gave up, what makes me any different? I have the attitude of “If they can do it, I can do it too!” I don’t put people in this guru like category where I think oh wow they make $100 million dollars a year I could never do that

…I see what they are doing.

…I follow them.

…I learn from them and implement it in my own business.

…my own marketing efforts.

…my own writing style.

…and guess what? It worked 😉

Residual income has saved my life many times. Ever have an unexpected bill or emergency pop up and not have the money in the bank to take care of it? It happened to me one time… I sat there upset all day even into the next day. Wondering what I was gonna do to come up with the money…

Should I head to the pawnshop with one of my prized guitars or amps? Maybe pawn a gold coin or tube of silver coins?

All these things crossed my mind that day… For whatever reason I told myself to stick it out another day, God is good and works miracles in times like these.

The next day I checked my mailbox to find a check from some affiliate marketing deal I stopped marketing months previously lol…

…and yes, that check covered my unexpected bills and I still had money left over to save/invest/spend you get the idea.

I hope you have enjoyed this post about why I personally prefer residual vs active income.

Which do you prefer? Clocking in and out everyday working hard in what seems like a vicious cycle?

Or are you ambitiously lazy like myself, and prefer to do work one time and continue to get paid for that work for the rest of your life?

Leave your comments below and let me know!

Also, if you liked this post or learned something new, please share it on your Facebook, Twitter, or whatever Social Network YOU prefer 🙂

You rock!
