Direct Marketing Strategies: Business, 2… Pleasure, 1, plus unusual stats

Few of items to go through today:


Yesterday my daughter started middle school and I had a bunch of unusual mixed emotions.

For some reason I felt a sense of emptiness that I didn’t expect or couldn’t explain.

After all, both of my sons went through this quite some time ago… and it’s not like I don’t have anything to do during the day, or that Sam and I spent all day together and now we can’t.

If was an awkward feeling.  I guess… a sense of loss or more like “missing” or “missing out on” something, that I definitely wasn’t happy with.

For the first time, I had a strong feeling I wished I spent more time with Sam when she was little.  I suddenly appreciated her beauty and inquisitiveness and energy, much more.

And of course, that’s a terrible feeling, because regret isn’t something you can erase so easily… and, because you can’t turn back time.

I am lucky Sam is in my life and will continue encouraging her to grow.

And she, no doubt, will do the same to me – even though she may not know it.


My book “How To Make Maximum Money With Minimum Customers,” is moving up the amazon list – currently at #45 in the Direct Marketing category.  And interestingly enough, Kindle sales are starting to equal hard copy sales – and I have no doubt they will surpass hard copy sales in the near future.

If you prefer to order the book from me directly and get 3 CDs, 3 DVDs, a Free Sample issue of Seductive Selling, and a lifetime guarantee, then instead of ordering on amazon, you can do that right here.

And lastly…

If you want to learn how to write a long-form sales letter or free report, or if you want to discover how to start and run multiple coaching programs, get my new Free Report and Audio, “How To Start At ZERO… And Launch A Munney-Making Empire”
