Hey! Welcome back!
In business, nothing ever goes smoothly and 2020 has taught us plenty about that.
So we’ve learned to PIVOT, to ADAPT and to overcome the various obstacles and challenges that have been put in our way.
The Gold Standard Bank has been quietly evolving in the background for years but this December, we took the big step of launching what is effectively a brand new sales and distribution arm of the company.
A bunch of leaders with over a hundred years of online experience between them has collaborated to put together an online venture that addresses all the failings we have seen in other companies while retaining the best parts of our original projects.
For a two-minute introduction click on this link or on the image below.
And right now, we are celebrating our launch with some tasty asset deals including a couple of G999 AIRDROPS. Now, who doesn’t love an airdrop right?
There are several key aspects of our project and our G999 token that make it stand out from other blockchain projects:
Limited Number of Masternodes
A ready-made, hungry and knowledgeable community of over 60,000 people pre-registered
A self-fulfilling Deflationary Model
Real World Use Case with the G999 as a Utility Token
Blockchain Banking Services
Secure Communications Services over the Blockchain
Certificate of Copyright
Gold Standard Bank Merchant Services including Payment Cards
If you click on the image below, you will be able to flick through a short powerpoint presentation that gives some more of the detail of what we can do along with information about the incredible airdrops and other liited-time inducements to get you to register.
Can I just point out that you don’t have to spend a red cent to be able to register.
However if you deposit a small value of Bitcoin then you will be airdropped 4999 G999 tokens which are your to keep. You also are then entered into an exclusive prize draw to win a Masternode including all set up and hosting.
What is a Masternode? It’s like having another salary, working for you 24/7 and in our estimation it has to be the ultimate in smart passive income.
Obviously, we hope you will become engaged with our business and grow with us into the longer term. We have a multitude of wealth-creating partnerships which we guarantee will blow your mind, including smart contract assets which you can purchase in a ‘genesis’ market which you can then sell to the secondary markets but retain ownership for the life of the asset thus earning transactional fees passively.
The future is looking bright in the defi space and we hope you will join with us and together we can have a prosperous 2021.
Hi there, I hope you’re having a relaxing and peaceful Sunday. Here in the UK, it is Armistice Day or Poppy Day and we take a couple of minutes to sit in absolute and total silence to think about our ancestors and the awful sacrifice many had to make.
Silence has been something in short supply just recently.
In fact, there’s been A LOT of talking, right?
Living in the UK, we have no direct involvement in the US Elections and we wouldn’t presume to suggest which political party is the best to run the United States.
It looks like Joe Biden has clinched the Presidency of the United States, but whichever of the seventy-plus-year-old men it happens to be, once the lawyers have finished, they have a great deal of work to do.
And that brings me to the main point of our post this Sunday.
One of the biggest areas of concern for us when we are helping our team grow and develop, is shifting them from just talking and thinking about things and instead actually DOING those things.
Seems simple and straightforward, doesn’t it?
Well, it isn’t actually. Why not? I hear you asking…
Because we’re mostly all creatures of habit.
We usually like to do what we’ve always done.
That’s one of the reasons we suggest starting with simple, consistent habits. The things that you repeatedly do are the things that will move you toward your goals.
Small bite-sized chunks.
So with our teams, the objective is to…
Simplify. Figure out what it is you want to achieve.
Reverse Engineer. Once you know where you want to go, work your way back to where you currently are.
Take Action. You have to DO something. Make it happen. Results = Momentum.
Small successes yield bigger successes. Time after time.
And if you’re worried about having the perfect plan…stop. It will NEVER be perfect. Never EVER. That’s called ‘analysis paralysis.’
Everyone adjusts their goals along the way and so must often course correct to get there.
I mean, EVERYONE.
Having said that, we’ve yet to meet a successful person who isn’t making daily progress toward their goals.
They don’t sit on their hands waiting for something to happen while they kick their heels.
So stop sitting around talking and waiting for seventy-year-old politicians to save you and instead start moving!
Start building your online passive income business and create assets that work for you 24/7…
The Robots are coming for your jobs and they’re being aided by the advent of Blockchain, automation and the Covid pandemic…!
Isn’t it about time you had your ‘Kodak Moment’…?
You’ll have heard of Kodak, of course.
They used to be one of the most successful companies in the world. They became so much part of modern culture that we used to say we had had a ‘Kodak moment‘ when we’d experienced a personal moment that needed to be recorded for posterity.
And as a boy, I diligently saved up my paper-round money every week so I could buy a Kodak Instamatic camera, just like the one in the photo above, to take on my summer vacation.
Then in the late 1980’s I moved from Scotland down to England to work for a major oil company and we were situated across the road from the Kodak Tower, Kodak’s European HQ.
Their setup was impressive and they were so influential in the area, the town was known as Kodak Town.
In between our two buildings was the kookily named ‘Magic Roundabout’… a futuristic double-helix roundabout and the first in the country.
Sadly, the company was not quite so futuristic and, despite coming up with one of the very first digital cameras, which it shelved, it missed the digital technology boat and filed for bankruptcy in 2012.
Since then, the move towards automation and digital technology has swept across the globe, destroying many companies and jobs on the way.
Check out this video HERE. You can also click on the image below.
The video is quite a shocker despite being six years old and you might never look at the world in the same way again.
Which is my exact intention.
Makes you think, right?
I first saw this video years ago and it was a pure 💡 moment!
From that day on…. combined with a dose of realisation that I could be of more use to my family and others by leveraging a global economy – not just a business that reached a few thousand people in the UK – I committed myself to helping as many folks as possible take action on two things….
1) Learn how to create a BUSINESS SYSTEM, leveraging a system to help others…to help others… to help others create INCOME 2) Learn how to become INVESTORS where they OWNED ASSETS that worked for them.
Why? Well, as the video points out humans have created technologies that mean the core function of “working” has already changed. It started years ago, with global trade becoming the normal state of affairs and low cost labour from the East, exported inflation, false debt based wealth for the West and now with computing power taking over at an exponential rate.
So, we have checkouts in stores, robots in factories, machines on farms, computers in law firms and hospitals.
Even the humble horse is out of a job!
And naturally, this inevitable reduction in human labour has already affected real wages.
Couple this with the huge macro economic experiments of the last 20 years (money printing etc) with huge big Govt borrowing as they attempt to appease public unease with unsustainable public and welfare “services” and you have a recipe for disaster as the worlds of reducing labour requirements (tax income) and increasing cost of living collide. 💥
All that was needed to accelerate the process was Covid-19…
Will it spell Doomsday for us all?
Probably not… but in a way it might be worse… it will be a death by 1000 cuts to millions of ordinary people with missed life opportunity just because of a lack of education and properly aligned life expectation.
We now live in the Communications Age… an age where peer to peer, value driven, one to one support and education can be created by ANYONE, anywhere and between communities.
The Communications Age is here and it is evolving fast….
With this evolution the worlds of telecommunications and finance collide and it’s all based on possibly the greatest innovation of the 21st century to date – the Blockchain.
NOW it’s time for Humans to APPLY…!
You see whatever technology is doing to “overtake” our labour it is ALSO providing new ways to create efficiency and a re-balancing of wealth distribution… in the end that is all “industry” and “work” actually is – a way for us to access wealth.
So what if you could access a way to create “income” from the very technology currently threatening YOUR livelihood?
What if you could be an insider on how this technology evolved and be a stake holder in its journey to creating value?
What if this also created assets ownership that ALSO protected your purchasing power no matter what?
From today, you can have Robots that WORK FOR YOU and who create INCOME for you and your family 24/7…!
I recently completed a 1,000 mile solo charity bike adventure.
Ten days on a bike changed my perspective on life. And it gave me a LOT of time to think…
Back in January, I was seriously moved by the gut-wrenchingly awful video footage of the Australian bush fires and the poor animals being hurt and killed in the devastated landscapes.
So, in a pre-Covid world, I immediately decided to do something positive and try and raise some funds for World Wildlife Fund Australia. At that time I felt extremely grateful that I was healthy enough to contemplate a physical challenge and being my own boss, I could afford the time and investment required to make it a success.
I had always harboured a desire to complete an iconic UK cycle challenge, Land’s End to John O’Groats, 970 miles from the southern most tip of England to the most northern part of the wild coastline of Scotland.
Now, bear in mind that at this stage of the year, it was the middle of a Scottish winter, the ride would be a thousand miles, and in the previous year I had biked little more than 100 miles in the entire year.
So, it would be fair to say I had a lot of work to do. And as my darling wife reminded me, I wasn’t exactly in the first flush of youth…
The early training was undertaken in my bike shed!
And then, as if I didn’t have enough of a challenge already, the worldwide pandemic tightened it’s terrible grip on everything and I was temporarily banned from cycling more than 5 miles from my home base.
The next couple of months were spent building up my fitness and my leg strength using very structured HIIT sessions, high intensity interval training, mixed with longer endurance rides. All of it was done in my bike shed.
One small advantage I had was the fact that I am a fully-qualified British Cycling coach and a former Fit Pro of the year, so I do have the chops where fitness training knowledge is concerned. But if you have ever spent a minute on a gym treadmill which felt like an hour, then you’ll have some idea of how tough some of my 3 or 4 hour static bike training sessions were. The daylight hours are short during a Scottish winter, and I remember one day when my son came out to the bike shed to see where I had vanished to and found me grinding out my warm-down session in almost complete darkness.
Training in my shed was bad enough. But Covid-19 wasn’t finished with us just yet.
My cycle challenge was scheduled for May 2020 and the start location was at Land’s End in Cornwall, England, 700 miles from my home. I had paid out a chunk of cash to a professional touring team to allow me to join with them for the ride. Peak Tours would plan my best route for me, they’d provide mechanical backup and food during each of the 10 days and arrange accommodation each night.
All I had to do was ride the bike.
Then the trip had to be cancelled due to the nationwide lockdown.
By this point I only had a few hundred pounds in sponsorship, but I still wanted to honour my pledge to cycle the distance. So I made a video, which you can see on my JustGiving page and got the go-ahead to cycle the thousand miles in the Scottish Highlands instead of the original plan.
In some ways, it would be easier as I would be home each night, but if you know Scotland, you’ll know there’s no flat land in the Highlands, the clue being in the name.
The other downside, which I should have anticipated better, was that I would have to do the entire thousand miles on my own…
And that’s exactly what I did.
I planned out my rides with what I thought was meticulous detail, keeping a beady eye on the weather forecasting sites, particularly where the wind and rain was concerned. I tried to pick interesting routes so I could get some nice photos of my beautiful Scotland. But on a more prosaic basis, I also attempted to balance tough rides with ‘easier’ rides.
So… how was it?
The Lessons Learned
Well, it was tough, to be honest. Harder than I thought, especially the second week. It was bad enough doing 100 miles the first day and then having to do the same again the next morning. But I had trained for that. I hadn’t trained for day after day after day at that mileage however. And the mental game is something I would pay more attention to next time.
What did I learn…?
I learnt a lot!
There were many aspects to my ride which translate well into real life and in particular, the life of an online business entrepreneur.
When you climb onto the bike at 6.30 am with your legs already fatigued from the day before and after a troubled nights’ sleep, it was tough to think about the mileage and the hills you had to conquer that day.
Many of the routes were not totally familiar to me. I would tackle an enormous hill, half-dead, only to find another one just as tough within minutes, then another and then an even bigger one after that. Undulating hills, a constant feature of Highland roads, are energy sapping and I soon realised it would be the strength of my willpower that would get me home, rather than the power in my legs.
Life on two wheels was just like real life. There were many ups and downs…
Ying and Yang
You had uphill and downhill. Whatever I had to climb, I would get to go down the other side later on. It was yin and yang on wheels.
Some of the high points were to do with the gorgeous environment I was cycling in. These few pictures don’t do justice to the beautiful Scottish Highlands. If you haven’t been there yet – put a visit on your bucket list!
Another lovely aspect was my experiences with the natural world. Being on a bike means you are usually pretty quiet and so you can get glimpses of nature which you could never hope to see from a car.
At one point, I was heading down a long fast descent, way more than a mile long, where I didn’t need to pedal even once.
I noticed a squadron of little sparrows, flying just off my left shoulder. They seemed interested in what I was doing and they stayed with me for several minutes, much like a dolphin would do in the bow wave of a boat. It was like they were wondering how the heck I was able to fly down that hill just like they were doing…!
On another day I saw a pod of dolphins and they actually followed me as I biked along the edge of the water for over half a mile.
Over the 10 days, I had the sheer joy of interacting with so many different animals and birds including; Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles, Buzzards and other birds of prey, Sheep, Cattle including Highland Cows, young Deer, smaller song Birds of every colour, Rabbits, Foxes, incredibly beautiful insects like Dragonflies, Butterflies, Bees of many description and too many others to mention.
Being on my bike day after day reminded me of how tough my early days online had been.
When you start out as an entrepreneur, there’s a lot to master. A great many seemingly insurmountable mountains to climb.
Joint Ventures and so on…
If you were to think too hard about everything you needed to get to grips with then you’d probably not get going. A common problem in online business is ‘analysis paralysis.’ It can also be called ‘Overwhelm.’
I learned during my ten-day ride to focus only on the road just ahead of my front wheel. If a huge incline was ahead, I wouldn’t look too closely at it. As long as I kept my pedals moving… that’s all I needed to do. If my bike was moving forwards, no matter how slowly, I would get to my destination, my goal for that day.
Instead, I would look back downwards at the climb I had just beaten. I gained so much confidence seeing the severity of the hills that I was able to ride up.
Pedal stroke by pedal stroke, minute by minute, I would grind out the toughest days.
Just like in business. What’s that saying again?
‘How would you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!’
What else did I learn?
A key element to my success with this epic bike ride was preparation and support.
Just like with your online business venture, if you prepare properly then you will be better positioned to take advantage of every situation.
I made sure I was up at 6 am at the very latest. I had my bike kit packed the evening before. I had a flashcard written out and pasted onto a piece or cardboard, with all my ‘must-have’ items listed. It was a genius move as I soon discovered how easily a fatigued brain can miss something obvious. Just like a nervous and in-experienced online marketer can forget something vital in business, unless they are prepared.
I knew the route I would be taking each day, although not always the elevation – big mistake!
Even over ten days, my experience grew hugely, enabling me to make better decisions and more quickly, with less drama.
You’ll find the same thing if you challenge yourself to making a daily Facebook Live for example. On day 1 you’ll be nervous, you won’t know how long you”ll be talking for and you’ll make mistakes and feel awkward or self-conscious. However, after a week it’ll seem so much easier! Just do it!
Support is vital
At this stage I have to give a huge shout out to my family, without whose support, I could never have done the full 10 days.
The support I received ensured I had the right food at the right time each night, my cycling kit was washed and ready every day and I had peace and quiet to recover as well as I could as the toll on my body and mind increased exponentially through the second week.
Another plus point about being out and alone in the remote Scottish Highlands, was the relative peace and quiet. I had so much time to think.
I am a thriller writer [ as Alex Breck ] when I’m not doing crazy stunts or helping my gold business teams. During the ten days, I mapped out the entire plot of my next novel which I am starting in September. I had the peace and the space to work through any plot twists and complications ad infinitum.
I also had time to consider what was important to me. Feeling like death at points, focused my mind on ensuring my family were financially secure. Being so physically exhausted but then also becoming so much stronger and fitter made me vow to keep some of that rude health and live a healthier and more outdoor life ongoing.
The Mental Game
In conclusion, I’d like to emphasise the critical importance of the mental element of the 10 day challenge.
There were times I felt like giving up. Bleak moments out on the bike where I couldn’t see how I was going to get through the ride, or catch the boat ferry in time, as all the energy in my body had seemingly vanished.
Just like in real life, in business.
All too often, people give up just before that point where they were about to make their all-important breakthrough. I have seen it too many times.
I didn’t give up. I cycled over one thousand miles in ten days. And at the time of writing this, I have raised a four-figure sum for the ravaged animals of Eastern Australia’s awful bush fires. You can still sponsor me HERE for another month or so.
And I urge you, whatever your involved with, to persevere and battle through until you achieve YOUR goals.
In our gold business, we are used to the constant technological innovation and steady drip of golden nuggets into our gold based wealth portfolios.
But until recently, the concept of a Stablecoin was unknown to us. Our advice is to do some research online but here’s a quick explanation:
Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies designed to minimize the volatility of the price of the stablecoin, relative to some “stable” asset or basket of assets. A stablecoin can be pegged to a cryptocurrency, fiat (paper) money, or to exchange-traded commodities such as precious metals or industrial metals.
In our case, the V999 stablecoin is pegged to 24 karat gold.
And as part of our gold ecosystem, the V999 digital stablecoin now gives us a new way to generate a passive residual income stream – the Holy Grail of most online business.
What is the V999 stablecoin?
This story analogy will help to make it clearer.
Imagine when you were 7 years old and you got your first £5/$5 (or any equivalent currency note) as pocket money. You took it to the sweet shop. You bought some sweets. Now the sweet shop owner owns your £5. You own the sweets. You had made a transaction.
Then the sweet shop owner took the same £5 to the wholesaler to buy more sweets to put in his shop. He used the £5 you gave him to pay the wholesaler. Now the wholesaler owns the £5 you once had.
Your £5 left your hand and passed through two sets of hands. Imagine that today you are 50 years old. Imagine how many hands your £5 has passed through in those 43 years.
Now ignore the fact that new bank notes are being issued in that time. It just means your £5 looks different. It still says £5 on the new design, right? Just imagine your £5 travelled far and wide all across the globe. It changed from GBP pounds to US dollars. Then USD to YEN. Then YEN to Euros and back to pounds again.
How many transactions happened in its lifetime from 7 years old to 50 years old?
Imagine if your bank had given you a 0.02% fee every time your £5 changed hands over those 43 years. That’s a lot of fees because you earn fees for the giver and the receiver (buyer and seller).
That’s what V999 offers
Each V999 stablecoin represents a real and tangible physical 0.1 g Cashgold that you took to the sweet shop at age 7. And every time the digital version of that Cashgold (V999) changed hands on the blockchain (digital transactions/shops), you received a fee of 0.02%. Twice. Once for the giving and once for the receiving.
The V999 stablecoin system will know who first owned the Cashgold (V999) and took it to the sweet shop (blockchain) because each V999 will be digitally stamped/coded with your identity. The system then knows who to award the fees to. Fees are paid to infinity, for the life of the blockchain as long as that original V999 stablecoin is in circulation.
You are now ‘the money supply’.
The V999 Stablecoin Makes You the Money Supply
Until now it has always been the banks. They collected those fees. They still do. That’s why your paper currency is ‘worth less’ and ‘worthless’.
The current pandemic situation is only making things worse. The central banks are currently involved in the greatest wealth transfer in history – but most of it is not coming to us everyday folks – instead it’s going to the people closest to the money supply. The banks, corporations, hedge funds and pension companies.
But now, thanks to blockchain technology, ‘people power’ is taking over. Ordinary people are realising they were cheated all those years from age 7 to age 50.
That’s why the blockchain exists. It’s decentralised finance and peer to peer transactions. No banks in the middle creating debt, poverty and hunger.
Imagine how much you would have earned just from the fee-based income from your £5 pocket money over those 43 years?
That’s what the V999 stablecoin offers.
That’s what we can set up for ourselves and our bloodline. V999 is just the digital representation of physical audited gold in a Swiss Bank. Gold you can hold if you no longer want to own V999.
V999 is an opportunity if you missed your seat for a Masternode. Each V999 is an income stream.
And all you have to do is MESSAGE US to register your interest in taking part by the deadline of 31 July 2020. Then start stacking up on Cashgold in your gold account ready to exchange it into V999 on the partner platform.
‘Partner’ just means a business partner of our gold business who will run that project for our gold account holders only. Just like FedEx runs the delivery of our gold.The more Cashgold you own, the more fees you earn to infinity, and beyond.
I hope this helps someone to understand the power of our Cashgold, the power of gold ownership, the power of multiple income streams from just 0.1 g Cashgold, and our incredible ecosystem.
We are creating the debt free global communities we want to see. We are part of the solution. We are the Pioneers. We are the ‘First Adopters’. We are tomorrow’s history books.
Do you remember the famous line, used in most, if not all, the Star Wars movies. It’s most famously associated with Han Solo but was actually first said by our favourite character C3PO. Why do we like him best? Because he’s golden of course…
But on to more serious matters.
Right now the world is in the grip of a serious economic crisis.
The enormous debt bubble that has been building for many years now, has finally been burst by the Covid pin. Check out the 25 trillion dollar US national debt if you don’t believe us.
The American government, along with the authorities in many countries, including here in the United Kingdom, has been paying the nation to stay at home.
In the States, these furlough payments, or Stimulus Checks have amounted to over $300 million.
Seems like a lot of cash to be sure.
But that’s only a tiny 5% of the money the Federal Reserve has pumped into the economy to prop up a failing system.
The rest of the SIX TRILLION has gone to the people closer to the money supply than we are. The banks, financial institutions, hedge funds, bond companies and the like. The huge corporations and of course ultimately the stock market.
This is commonly described as THE GREATEST WEALTH TRANSFER IN HISTORY.
And rest assured, it isn’t flowing into our coffers anytime soon. Unless we do something about it, of course. More on that in a minute…
Firstly, let’s ask the question: Who is going to PAY for all of this?
We are. The bulk of the population who didn’t receive a red cent of this wealth transfer, will end up paying for it.
That means you and me, but more worryingly than that, it means our children and our grand-children will be paying for this for their entire lives.
Higher taxes, greater austerity measures, poorer social services, diminished health care, less employment opportunities and even shorter life spans in many cases.
The Death of Cash
This image above is from Australia but it’s a phenomenon that is spreading across the globe.
Banks are offering negative interest rates in many countries already. And so with little incentive to save cash in the bank, people will want to keep it closer to them. To stop people hoarding their cash under the bed, they are introducing measures to limit the uses of cash.
Why do you need cash they will say, unless you are a drug dealer…
Already in Australia, new laws forbid cash transactions above ten thousand dollars.
The Covid pandemic is only going to accelerate many of the issues mentioned above.
Then if you add into the mix these developments:
Increased working from home
Then you can see we are looking at heady times indeed. Just check the news today of the rioting in the US.
Here in the UK we are considering a Universal Basic Income. This would be paid to every citizen, no matter if they worked or not. It wouldn’t be based on any criteria and it would benefit the entire population.
This idea is being mooted in many countries.
It would obviously take the place of several if not most state benefits which would result in a streamlined and more efficient system
Sounds good, right? Maybe not…
In our humble opinion, this is a bad idea, a very bad idea.
Fast forward into a potential dystopian future – the entire population dependent on a weekly payout from the state. Few jobs. No cash. All transactions automated and digital. Social isolation. Ultimate power in the hands of a very few people. The death of democracy.
So, what’s the solution?
The answer, or at least part of it, is to position yourself OUTSIDE the failing conventional system. Accumulate an asset that grows in value, that always holds its purchasing power and one that everyone understands – GOLD.
We are part of a community that is looking at huge gains over the last couple of years. Our gold business has just hit one million affiliates and gold is going global.
And all you need to be able to do to prosper from this is to share a video. You can do that, right?
There are so many ways to get paid with this…
So if you’re thinking about an online business with a golden future then give this some serious consideration.
My name is Robin Morton and I do not promote many opportunities nor I am a huge fan of network marketing in general. However, in the two and a bit years that I’ve been involved with this gold and technology business, I have increased my net wealth by many times that of anything I have ever been part of in the past. Not bad for a guy who was virtually homeless following a business failure just a few short years ago.
This post comes from a rain-lashed Scottish island and so we hope you’re having a better time of it! Apart from that we’re all fine and healthy, so stay safe and use your judgement when absorbing the tsunami of media information about this crazy situation…
This bad weather has given me more time to think…
It’s my belief that when we struggle with our online businesses, aside from skipping the really basic fundamentals, it’s often because we are focusing too much on a particular tactic or process. We’re taking our attention off the people we serve or aspire to serve.
People are the constant…and in many ways, they’re really predictable.
They want convenience.
At the start of the 20th century, travelling by horse was a common thing.
Trains were how we covered longer distances. But cars and airplanes quickly superseded them.
Then cars and airplanes got faster and faster. Roads turned into motorways.
Propeller planes gave way to jets. Because whatever is the latest convenience today soon becomes inconvenient…and people want more.
Did you know, the dishwasher was invented in 1886…?
So the pursuit of convenience isn’t exactly new and it’s not going away anytime soon.
People also want status and improved self-image.
Perhaps you’re familiar with John Caples…arguably the greatest copywriter of all time. In 1925 he wrote one of the greatest headlines (and ads) ever.
“They Laughed When I Sat Down At The Piano – But When I Started To Play”
Increased status, right?
In fact, looking through my hard drive and doing a few online searches yielded dozens of ads dating back to the 1850’s for things that improved how people felt. It became obvious to me that people have always wanted better self-esteem.
I won’t bore you with any more history lessons…but if you want to WIN in a sustainable way, you’ve got to start with the person.
So Robin, what does that mean in a practical way?
Okay, with whatever business you’re running, ask yourself, what result do your customers want?
In my humble opinion…more often than not, it’s that they want to be happy.
Maybe they think / hope that makes lots of moolah online will make them happy.
Feeling more self-confident. Having less stress.
All of it is linked to their perception that solving the problem they feel they have will make their life better. aka… HAPPIER
And yes, it might make them happier…but if that was universally the case, I’m pretty sure that fewer people would blow all their lotto winnings within a few years of getting it.
So, perhaps we need to help them be happier…today.
From my business perspective, it might even be the way that they can continue to preserve their increased income or reach whatever financial goal they have. But, make no mistake…if people dislike the process, the likelihood of them sticking with it for years is very, very low…no matter what.
Don’t believe me?
Well, we know that compound interest is like magic…yet getting people to invest more when it’s kind of uncomfortable and might prevent them from enjoying today as much, can be tough.
In fact, I’d go as far as to say it has to be automated for most people to have any degree of ongoing, consistent success. That’s why our gold business has an auto-save facility – set and forget – so you can build wealth weekly / monthly without even noticing…!
If we reduce the friction of things, make progress or small wins more readily achievable and don’t make people feel like what they’re getting isn’t worth what they’re giving up…we’ve got a good shot at success.
So how about a few quick thoughts… • Make people feel important. That alone will make them happy. • Create situations where they feel like they win as often as possible. Accentuate the positives. • Provide accountability. • Get personal and try to solve their individual challenges…not just providing general ideas. • Create ways to connect your customers with each other. Like our private Facebook Group.
Think about things from their perspective. Don’t be the cheapest in the market. You shouldn’t be in the middle. Be the BEST! Deliver something different and better…and make sure you do it profitably.
Here’s another thing most of you don’t do…
And if you truly want to WIN moving forward, this is an area you’re going to need to excel. Once you have someone’s attention initially, you’ve got to FOLLOW UP.
You have to educate them.
You need to motivate them.
You need to help them see how you’re different and how you’re better.
Let your message weed out the bad fits and build value with the good fits.
If the value grows high enough in the eyes of the prospect, m.oney becomes much less of an issue. If you convince them that you can solve the problem no one else could solve, it’s far more valuable to them than any run of the mill cookie-cutter system could ever be. But you’ve got to do the work. Not only do you need to follow up until that person is ready…and understand that people are ready for things on their own timeline… …but you need to be authentic. No bland follow up.You can’t maintain someone’s attention with general content. You need to say things that really speak to the people you want…and if it drives away the rest, oh well. He’s a tip…unsubscribes are your friend. If you aren’t repelling anyone, you’re not attracting anyone either. We get unsubscribes every week. Now we obviously use email newsletters to follow up, most days, but we also use: · Podcasts · FB posts · Twitter posts · Some retargeted ads with social proof With all of them, we’re trying to not only share valuable education, but also being ourselves and sharing our approach and philosophy so that someone can decide if we’re a fit for them or not. Then, we make offers. We often have a wee P.S. at the end of almost every email so that when someone is ready, they can act right then and there. Sometimes we send direct offers…short emails or multi-day launches. But if we follow up daily and make offers frequently, those who want help will engage when they’re ready.
Now I don’t know that you need to do what we do exactly, but again, people are people and they need to know why you’re better and different…or else they have no reason to choose you. But to be a destination, you need to be special. And people are going to decide when they’re ready…so you need to keep offers in front of them. And if you commit to follow up, you’ll have more than enough business because your competition won’t. Fact.
As regards ads, sadly the days of running ads directly to sales offers on Facebook are not what they once were. Do you go on Facebook to shop? Didn’t think so. But have you bought anything thru FB lately…? I have. With that in mind, we need to treat those ads like we treat commercials on any other medium. See, ads are an interruption…so it seems safe to think that someone doesn’t see an ad and think to themselves: ‘I’m just going to get my credit card out and rearrange my life since I stumbled across this offer while I was scrolling and killing time.’ You need to be prepared to connect with someone and get their attention first, permission to follow up second and continued attention third.
How do you do that? For a start, STOP trying to ask them to marry you when you first meet them.
See, online or offline…people are people and relationships are a step by step process. The first step is giving them something valuable to get their attention and ongoing interest. It might be your book or guide. It could be a gift card for $100 worth of your services. Maybe it’s a checklist or cheatsheet that they find interesting or solves a problem they have. Ideally, they’ve give you their contact information in exchange for this item…but even if it’s just them clicking to go watch your video or download your gift, you can pixel them so you now can follow up. But let’s back up a step.
Where do you find those nice people who might eventually become customers? Well, think about your current customers. Where do they live? Where do they spend their time? What businesses do they frequent? What sites are they going to?
If someone wanted to reach me, yes they could run ads on FB…but you could also: • Run ads on google. • Run ads on the various other sites I visit…Twitter and a few sports sites. • Ads on Amazon. • I listen to podcasts…someone could reach me there. If I’m not listening to that or a book on audible. Someone could run an ad there for sure. • Someone could certainly send me direct mail. • Under normal circumstances, I get my haircut, go to my bank, visit the grocery store, see my dentist, pop into the coffee shop, buy at the local deli, go to the local bookstore and visit a few other local businesses on a semi-regular basis. Someone could easily form a strategic alliance with any of those businesses. • And, finally, someone could get friends of mine to share things with me…so if I have a friend who is a customer, a book or a gift card could easily be passed along. So, if you are one of these people acting as if the sky is falling when FB ads slow down or other avenues run their course…stop it.
The people you want to reach still live in the same homes, shop at the same places and do much of the same stuff…there’s always a way to connect with them…but you need to do it in a fashion that puts you in control of the opportunity to follow up.
Summing All This Up To Help You Win
Yes, this isn’t as sexy as marketing free stuff that isn’t free…but it’s more sustainable…and frankly, it has a hint more integrity mixed in for good measure.
But if you stop thinking about a tactic or channel and commit to: • Adding a set number of leads to your database every month (30+). • Following up in a few different ways and adding value to those contacts’ lives…all the while showing them why you’re different. • Consistently making offers so that when they’re ready, they can act. • Tracking your numbers to see what’s working and where you have the most room for improvement. • And delivering a dream come true result through an enjoyable experience…so your customers can help you feed the top of that funnel.
I was humbled to be asked by Karatbars International to become a presenter of their short overview presentation, designed for showing to people who have had no prior exposure to the entrepreneurial opportunities of saving in gold and sharing the good news with others.
So, if you want a super-honest and genuine insight into what we’re all about with our gold business, watch this simple and easy to follow video from yours truly. ✅ There’s never been a better time to get into a gold and gold-linked digital asset home business as NOW! 🙏🙏
Hey everyone and a HUGE WELCOME to all my new team mates! ✅
The last 2 weeks have been amazing with Karatbars and if you had told me last year that I would be flying to places like Frankfurt, Dubai and London all expenses paid, then I would have called you crazy. But, seriously, I am just an ordinary guy from Scotland who didn’t have a clue about gold or gold-backed digital coins back then. And little by little, with the help of the Karatbars system that anyone can use, I have amassed a nice treasure trove of gold and coins. But the GOOD NEWS is that we’re only getting started.
First we had gold, then we introduced gold-backed coins and NOW we have the K1 Impulse blockchain smartphone!
The new K1 Impulse smartphone is going to change everything!
Think of it like this 🤔
How much has technology changed in the past 10 years ??
1️⃣ In 2007, the iPhone was launched 2️⃣ Then we had the launch of Wifi hot spots 3️⃣ Social media channels appeared like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc 4️⃣ Next we had Live streaming
🎉NOW in 2019 we have the launch of the K1 Impulse Blockchain smartphone – ✅Unlimited Data Storage – no more extra charges ✅Zero Roaming Charges ✅100% Secure – military grade encryption makes them un-hackable
The K1 Impulse from Karatbars International

Plus, as a launch incentive, we’ll give you an extra 200% bonus coins if you take action soon. This means you will have tripled your outlay and be into massive profit from Day One!

I’ll be in Dubai March 30th for the Launch of the World’s 1st Blockchain Phone
It’s going to be an incredible event and the very first in a Gold Independence World Tour series as we roll ever closer to July 4th Golden Independence Day where you can exchange 100 KBC gold-backed asset coins for a gram of real physical gold.
What’s more, I am flying from my wee island in Scotland all the way to Dubai ‘Scot-free’ if you excuse the pun!
My super-generous gold saving business has paid ALL my travel and hotel expenses and the hotel is out of this world. It has nine restaurants!
Why did they reward me so generously? Just for helping people. That’s it!
I’ll be in London too on April 6th for the second event, a little closer to home thankfully.
The K1 IMpulse phone is going to be a real game-changer because it will work thru the Blockchain and this means it will be un-hackable and totally private.
No longer will you have to depend on broadband and wi-fi and for me in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, that is a BIG DEAL! Think also of the continent of Africa where large parts have still to be connected to the internet – it will literally open up 21st Century technology to millions of people.
What’s more, because Blockchain is peer-to-peer decentralised technology it will be far cheaper and more reliable to operate – no pesky middlemen!
Think how popular this will be. Don’t YOU want to be one of the first people to be able to offer this to others?
This is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and standing at over 2,700 feet it’s the tallest building in the world.
That’s not the only revolutionary new business to be launched at the Dubai event.
The Karat Merchant System will allow businesses to accept payment in cryptocurrency and gold and it will be a totally risk-less transaction medium.
Imagine being able to offer small and medium sized business owners the chance to accept payment like that and in doing so, also earn a little real gold in the process. How many coffee-shop owners do you know who work their socks off every day but don’t have any assets to show for their efforts. They rent their premises, lease their equipment and are chasing income every day. Now they can build an asset with every cup of coffee sold.
Are you starting to see the VALUE here?
Now, obviously people ARE getting more excited about my gold business and the KBC coin in particular. When I first got involved a year ago, the original exchange prices were around half a cent. Now it’s around 12 TIMES that! Not too shabby, right?
But you’ve still got plenty time to join us and grab some first mover advantage. The KBC and KCB coins still offer enormous value and the business is throwing f.ree coins and other bonuses and incentives at affiliates in the run up to July 4th. Hence my luxury weekend in Dubai in a few days. So get started with a gold and crypto account today!
To help new affiliates make the most of the incredible offers available and to show them all the features we have to accelerate their wealth, we’re having a #100daygoldchallenge program which starts on Monday March 25th which is, you guessed it, exactly 100 days before July 4th.
So get in touch and join our program – it costs nothing – all we ask is you register as a f.ree affiliate and agree to take our advice each day, small steps, a few minutes per day, to grow your own treasure vault of real physical gold by Gold Independence Day July 4th 2019
