How to Unlock Online Riches with Product Launches
My background is as a Nursepreneur – for 20 years I taught caregivers how to provide quality eldercare in community based settings – particularly in Adult Family Homes and Assisted Living Facilities in the States of Washington and Oregon. I also owned and operated my own eldercare facility for ten years.
After I closed my care home in 2011 – I went outside, looked up at the sky, and asked, “Now what?”
“What am I to do now, that I can serve the community, work in a way that matches my abilities, and help my husband support our family?”
I immediately received an intuitive download: “Learn all you can about Holistic Healing, and learn all you can about Internet Marketing.” I was puzzled, because these two worlds appear to be totally opposite…but I knew I had received direct inspiration, so I acted on it.
I searched out those with expertise in both fields, and “line upon line, precept on precept”, I gained working knowledge and some expertise in both areas. Now, I do online marketing consulting work and holistic healing work for myself, my family and a few incredible clients. Holistic Healing practices have moved me from the depths of overload to a new sense of wholeness and fresh energy. My understanding and skills in Internet Marketing have empowered me to practice web development, branding, social media, video interviews, SEO and more. In today’s business world, we all need to know how to present ourselves professionally and reach out to our STAR clients. So now I see why I was directed to learn both Holistic Healing and Internet Marketing.
We thrive in business when we collaborate, share and help one another. So this post about Product Launches is one of a series I’ve titled “Unlock Online Riches”, showcases some of the most valuable Internet Marketing Training I have come across in my studies. In the spirit of full disclosure, just as for other training / products I tell you about, I am an affiliate for Product Launch Formula by Jeff Walker. Being an affiliate means I will be compensated when someone buys the program through my link. Buying through an affiliate does not cost you more – the pricing is the same. Basically, as an affiliate, you are paid (after the sale) for promoting the product. As you discover excellent products and services you like to share, I encourage you to consider becoming an affiliate for them. But please only become an affiliate for products and services you have bought and tested for yourself, so you can vouch for the quality. You don’t want to ruin your own credibility just to make a quick buck.
The reason I chose to share Product Launch Formula, is that when you learn Jeff’s process for launching a product, book, program or business, you are learning valuable skills that you can use again and again. Parts of his training focuses on the specific “how to’s” of the marketing process, and parts of the training focuses on mindset and presentation. He’s been around the Internet Marketing world for years, and his training is excellent. Jeff keeps his program updated, and guides you to present your best self to your market. If you are new to online entrepreneurship this will provide solid training for you to launch your first product online. If you are already in business, and want to to put new life into your programs by launching something new, Product Launch Formula is a great way to reach out, expand your practice, and help you scale up to a new level.
The thing is, Jeff Walker usually does one big promotion for his Product Launch Formula each year. In 2018, that’s happening in February.
During the big promotion month, he sometimes offers special pricing and extra bonuses if you purchase the training during that time.
But you can learn about his training anytime. Just CLICK THIS LINK directly to check it out Jeff’s training anytime, and see if a Product Launch might be right for you.

Just need to express myself for a moment… One of my 3 web services clients just cancelled.
I’ve served them for over 3 years… and all the details their new web service guy needs he has already gotten from the website and social media I built for them….
Alas… I feel adrift and sorrowful that they no longer want my services…. or that they allowed themselves to be persuaded by someone else…. I consider them my friends… I made personal visits to the establishment every month… I championed them as a business… they won a write up in the local paper due to my online work on their behalf… and this is how they repay me? By cancelling my services?
Is it okay for them to move on?
Is it okay for me to move on?
Did I serve them well?
Did they limit how much they would allow me to serve?
Have they grown beyond my capabilities?
Have my capabilities I grown beyond them?
OK. I agree. Perhaps the change is a blessing.
Still, it feels like a loss.
Am I allowed to grieve this?
5 emotions in grief.
I feel better just writing this down.
Is there a lesson here?
Something I could have done better?
Could I have built a better website?
Yes, but they did not allow you to.
They chose the limited services that matched them at the time.
Now that you have expanded who they are through your work,
They now feel ready to grow beyond what you created.
Should I try to get their business back?
It is time for you to move on.
You are capable now of so much more.
Is there a message in this?
Yes. Keep going. Keep growing. Keep giving your gifts.
As you expand and explore in your new energy
of affluence, ease and joy,
newer and better opportunities will come to you.
Prosperity, joy and abundance are flowing your way.
Thank you, thank you, thank you…
I go forward in the calm confidence of divine guidance…
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It is only just begun.
Mastermind Your Life
I’ve been in Business Masterminds in the past.
I loved the learning, I loved the content, I loved the presentations,
and most of all, I loved the people.
But somehow, I couldn’t seem to maximize the experiences enough
to create the real business breakthrough results I wanted…
regardless of how much time and money I invested,
or how diligently I worked at the systems.
Floundering around, intermittently dipping one toe
in the waters of what it takes to succeed,
I saw others rising to new heights, and I asked,
“Why can’t I do the same?”
“What is holding me back?”
Ask the right questions and you’ll get the right answers.
I found that disconnect was within me.
But what, exactly was that disconnect?
And could I ever clear it?
I withdrew from the groups to regroup,
and invested in a different kind of learning…
A deep personal journey of Holistic Healing.
Along this path, insight emerged,
“line upon line, precept upon precept”….
awakening to my conscious awareness
the dusty remnants of old hurts and fears…
disconnects, heart walls,
offensive energies, resentments,
emotional triggers, old memories, grief, sorrows,
personal traumas and even dysfunctional ancestral patterns
passed down through generations of time.
“You must clear the past to be free to go forward and create a new future.”
Powerful energy healing tools and plenty of practice honed my intuitive skills.
I released bundles of hurts hiding deep within my soul.
Little by little, my fears fell away, and as my energy shifted…
the blocks that had erstwhile held me bound
dissolved – neutralized and transmuted in the light of truth.
As my inner world shifted, my physical world changed, too.
opening the door for new possibilities.
Third Time’s a Charm
A 90 day Mastermind invitation showed up in my inbox…
an opportunity to expand my capability and productivity,
in the most effective business model in the field of my choice…
Clearly this was an opportunity to test the strength of my wings
and learn from the best of the best.
I’d already collected the required software.
My budget was tight, but doable.
The resources were there…
So I just jumped in.
Great intentions are only part of the equation.
There must needs be power of purpose to fuel momentum,
and strong guidelines to hold me to the course.
90 days. I can do anything for 90 days.
Still, life happens.
Out during the critical week number three
for a not-to-be missed family reunion
gave me the feeling of always trying to catch up.
Technology snafus and misunderstandings of expectations
split my focus into too many aspects of the training simultaneously.
I tried to do everything perfectly…
but gaps in my technical expertise prove that I remain human.
Week after week of zeros on my Friday accountability reports
seemed to predict the same old story…
that I wasn’t cut out for success, even in the best program around.
One of my mentors called me on it… and she was right.
Deep within, the echoes of old self-defeating thoughts
were rising to the surface.
I checked-in to my truth…
“Is this business path still correct for me?”
“OK, how can I get through this next roadblock?”
“Don’t let anything hold you back. Find another way.”
Remembering the guidance of the Mentors,
I applied what I’d learned and just kept going.
It rings true that you can’t succeed alone…
For what is success, but personal growth
in your ability to serve those around you?
The mentorship and accountability of a Mastermind group
inspires growth and expansion.
Small actions, consistently multiplied,
create the desired results we call “success”.
My Mastermind breakthrough came about 45 days in,
listening to our Director-of-Awesome demanding
that we stop waiting to perfect our technical expertise…
and requiring us jump first to THE ONE THING that makes the most difference…
connecting with those who might actually want what we have to offer,
listening to their needs, and discovering which of them are ready to receive.
All we truly need, in order to begin, is to know what to say,
who to call, and the ability to use a telephone.
Thus released from elusive perfection,
I picked up my cell phone…
took a deep breath,
and made that first call….
And I didn’t die.
So I called another… and another… and another…
Until I began looking forward to the practice
and enjoying the conversations, regardless of their outcome.

Add your own uniqueness to the mix.
Mastermind your life.
It’s the secret sauce that you can leverage for success.
We are all connected… every conversation matters…
My brother called me recently with tears in his eyes/voice, to read me a letter he had just received from our niece. It went something like this:
Seven years ago you were inspired to call me.
You didn’t know it was the day after my divorce, and when you called, I was in panic mode.
I was wondering what would happen to me next, worrying where I could live and how on earth
I could possibly manage to take care of myself and my children.
You took time to listen, and then you asked me a question.
You asked me if the next 4 years would pass by regardless of the choices I made.
I said yes.
So you told me to focus on what was most important,
and to go get an education that would give me the ability
to take care of myself and my family without depending on anybody else.
So I did. I went to school, and it was really, really, really hard.
Today, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing,
I am a licensed Registered Nurse,
and I am working in the State of Oregon.
And I am very grateful for my Uncle, who didn’t know what I was going through, but who felt inspired to call me – and who listened, and then told me what he thought I should do.
And did it. Thanks a Million”
