When I read a statement so bold as that I tend to shy away because most books claiming to make you lots of money are usually crap. Jim is absolutely correct in his bold statement because he is a well respected individual in the online/internet marketing industry. He is sought after tospeak at various engagments but more important consult with business owners possibly like yourself.
The reason I am taking the time to do this is his book was a breath of fresh air. I love his story telling and the easiness of the read. It by far helped me generate ideas that have the potential to make an impact.]
One of those ideas was to help our 501(c)3 non profit called the Niemann-Pick Children’s Fund. It was created in honor of my two oldest sons who have a rare degenerative neurological disease called Niemann-Pick Type C. The out come is always fatal and our tag line is “they only have a childhood to live a lifetime”.
Parents who have children who have this disease know that the time is limited regardless. So I thought we would contact Cisco, the makers of the Flip camcorder to see if they could help us with a few of them to give to a couple of other families with the disease in return for sharing some memories with us for our awareness campaigns. Currently we have set that in motion. Hopefully we can have some updates for you soon but it is a 2011 project I’d like to see come to light.
Jim’s book calls for you to be different. One story he tells is of a interview he had earlier on in his career that the guy interviewing him had those yellow sticky postit notes everywhere around his office! This had inspired Jim to buy a posterboard with sticky notes and basically put all the things that qualified him for the job of an ideal candidate. I could only imagine the look on the peoples face when he brought that in and requested it to be given to his future boss at the time.
My very first encounter of being apart of the online/internet marketing industry was similar minus the postit notes. I took a chance, I was different, and I knew I had to stand out. That is exactly what Jim calls you to do!
Please purchase his book Attention! This Book Will Make You Money and if you are unable there is this thing called a Public Library which I know is absurd but we pay taxes and there now is no excuse to read his book. If it makes you feel better, I think I was the very first person in the state of Missouri to check it out!
