Do Dreams Come True?

Fireworks At The Magic Kingdom

Funny question to ask, I know…

But after spending a magical week at Walt Disney World, and I’m still very much experiencing the dream from my magical vacation.

It’s silly, I know, and I feel like a kid all over again, but there’s a reason for all this.

During our vacation at Disney World, we experienced the magic of dreams and wishes, and yes, in the spirit of the Disney, I decided to wish upon a star…

Even though I was on vacation, I knew that if it wasn’t for of my business, none of this would have been possible.

That’s right, no Disney World, no Mickey Mouse, no Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, MGM, Epcot … Nothing.

For this reason, I thought about what else I would like to achieve both on a personal and professional level.

I’ve been full-time in my Internet Marketing business for close to a year now, and it’s been a very exciting ride.

During this time, I’ve written books, created information products, traveled the country to speak at live seminars, all the while consulting and coaching clients and helping them succeed in their businesses as well.

Yes – I’d say I have achieved quite a bit in the past year, and I’m happy with my accomplishments.

However, I wanted more…

The great thing about running a successful Internet Marketing business is the opportunity to associate with other experts in the field.

And when I hang out with guys like Mike Filsaime, Joel Comm, Jeff Walker, Ewen Chia, Sterling Valentine, Michael Cheney, Keith Wellman and Jason James, it’s fun and all because they’re all great guys…

However, I’ve always known that they have achieved an element of success that I have yet to achieve myself, and it’s always been a dream of mine to make it happen – the coveted 6 figure launch!

So after spending the last several months making my mark in the Internet Marketing arena, I decided that it was time that I officially release a product of my own – launch style.

And so I did…

On Monday, June 11th, I launched AdWords List Building as I boarded my flight from Philadelphia back to San Jose.

Yes, launching a product on a day that I can’t devote an entire day to, much less on a travel day, is practically unheard of, but I did it anyway.

I then spent a total of about 3 days working on the launch before boarding another flight on Friday morning to Orlando.

For the next 7 days, I was at Disney World, enjoying my week long vacation with my girlfriend.

And as I my flight touched down onto the Las Vegas Airport runway the following Friday, I got word from my team that AdWords List Building had officially become a 6 figure launch!

That’s right, we had made over $100,000 in sales in less than 12 short days, 6 of the days I was on vacation, 3 of the days I was traveling!

How sweet is that?

So, to answer the question of this blog post, the answer is “Yes.”

Dreams DO come true … and I’m living it. :)

Carl Galletti’s Internet Marketing Super Conference

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Seminars, Travel, Updates on June 23rd, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room J-120 of the Tuscany Hotel at Carl Galletti’s Internet Marketing Super Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Yes, I’m in Vegas again … I’m here so often that I almost feel like I should just a place down here!

As mentioned in my previous blog post, I flew here directly from Orlando yesterday.

Good thing for that too – Because Carl Galletti had scheduled me for the very first morning slot today…

And since I am still jetlagged from waking up at 8am Orlando time every morning for the past week, I didn’t have a problem getting ready for the morning shift. :)

I felt that my presentation went very well, and even though I still think that 90 minutes is a long time to talk, it actually went by really quickly, and I think I might’ve even gone over a little bit…

This year at Carl Galletti’s Internet Marketing Super Conference, other speakers included Jack Humphrey, Frank Sousa, Adam Ginsberg, Stu McLaren, Brad Fallon, Martin Wales, Shawn Casey, Jeanette Cates, Colin McDougal, Enrique Garabay, Mike Koenigs, Len Thurmond, Glenn Dietzel, Skip Thomas, Bruce Safran, Chris Moreno and of course, Carl Galletti himself.

That’s quite a roster, isn’t it?

Last night, I also had dinner with the Alive Records team – Mike Stewart, Mike Edging and Rex Wisehart.

They worked with Armand Morin to take his Michael Lee Austin album to the top of the charts using mostly Internet Marketing strategies.

It was very cool to sit down and chat with these guys and learn about their vision … I have a passion for music myself, and it definitely looks like there’s a lot of things we can work on together.

Anyway, this is a short Vegas trip … I only came to speak at Carl Galletti’s Internet Marketing Super Conference.

We’re leaving bright and early on a 6am flight back to San Jose … But we’ve been gone for over a week man … It’s time to go home.  :)

Disney World Vacation

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Travel, Updates on June 22nd, 2007 | No Comments

Hello from Room 1030 at the Hilton Hotel near Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida!

I’ve spent the past 7 days enjoying Disney World with my girlfriend, and it has definitely been a “magical” experience…

During the past several days, we visited the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, Animal Kingdom and the Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.

I feel like a kid again! Haha…

What made my Disney World vacation even more exciting is that I’m actually in the middle of a launch!

So needless to say, I made the most out of my time when waiting in line to make sure that my MDA is working for me :)

I will tell you my launch results from the past couple of weeks in a few days when I get home, but let me tell you, we’re doing good…

In fact, I had dinner with Joel Comm earlier tonight near the Wyndham Hotel by International Drive where he is staying and speaking at Harv Ecker’s “Never Work Again” seminar, and Joel has agreed to promoting my product to his customers!

This puts Joel in good company with many other Internet Marketing experts who already promoted or have committed to promoting in the upcoming days, including Jim Edwards, Marlon Sanders, Harris Fellman, Mark Hendricks, Willie Crawford, David Garfinkel, Michael Morgan, Sterling Valentine, Brian Edmondson, Jason James, Paulie Sabol, and several more.

Yes, it has been a fun and profitable vacation at Disney World.

Next stop is Las Vegas … We’re flying there directly from Orlando.

Talk to you there :)

The Rich Jerk’s Playboy Mansion Party

Posted by Simon Leung in Launch, Promotion, Travel, Updates on June 21st, 2007 | No Comments

I’m on vacation enjoying Disney World in Orlando with my girlfriend right now, but this simply cannot wait…

Here’s the story:

A few minutes ago, I got an email from none other than the Rich Jerk himself.

Now, I definitely don’t agree with many of the things this guy does or says…

But his latest crazy idea is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in quite a while!

You see, the Rich Jerk has invited me to an event … But wait, it’s not just any event…

It is:

* A social event
* A networking event
* A charity event

And here’s the kicker…

The Rich Jerk is hosting it at the Playboy Mansion!

But hang on – Yes, the Playboy Mansion sounds cool and all…

But the real reason I’m going is because of the unbelievable networking opportunity!

Why?

Because just look at who else is going to this super-exclusive networking event at the pre-party:

(I just about fell off my chair when the Rich Jerk told me this VIP list):

* John Reese
* Mike Filsaime
* Yanik Silver
* Frank Kern
* Jeff Johnson
* Mike Long
* Mark Warren
* And many more….

It’s hard enough to get those guys to speak individually at an event…

Now all of them will be in the same room, at the same time, in a social environment?

COUNT ME IN!

And get this:

RJ just told me that he still has 27 remaining spots open on the guest list to his party AND the pre-party networking event…

And he gave me permission to open up just those few spots to you!

The 27 tickets go on sale today, Thursday, June 21st at 9am PST (12 noon EST).

And remember:

It’s a CHARITY EVENT …

So not only do you get to hob-nob with Internet multi-millionaires, visit the Playboy Mansion, and hang with the playmates…

You ALSO get to contribute to a good cause.

Either way, I’m SUPER-EXCITED and just had to share the good news with you.

Can the “Little Guy” make $15k in 7 days?

I’m sure you are aware of all the huge launches that have been taking over the Internet in the recent months.

It is no secret that these launches often rely on “Super Affiliates” to crunch out the big numbers.

What makes a Super Affiliate?

Traditionally, product owners may look for someone who is a recognized expert and who also has a big list.

But what if one is NOT known, and doesn’t have a big list?

How can the “little guy” with a small list make a name for himself (or herself) online?

Well, my good friend, Brian Edmondson, did just that…

With his small list of only 1,286, Brian Edmondson propelled himself into expert status…

…By selling over $15k in 7 days for a Million Dollar Launch … and earning a coveted spot in the Top 20 Super Affiliates!

From Zero to “Super Affiliate” practically overnight…

Want to learn how Brian Edmondson did it?

In this no holds barred $15k in 7 Days audio interview, Brian Edmondson reveals all…

You won’t believe what Brian Edmondson has to say.

Oh, and when you get to the $15k in 7 Days website, look for a testimonial “above the fold” from a cool guy… :)

Hello from Room 601 at the Radisson Hotel at Ken McArthur’s jvAlert Live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

It has been exactly one year since attending my first jvAlert Live right here at the Radisson Hotel in Philly, and it has brought back so many memories of the event that changed my life forever.

I went into Internet Marketing full-time within just 6 weeks after that event, and have been attending every jvAlert Live loyally ever since.

jvAlert Live is my home, and everyone here is family.

This year, the jvAlert Live family grew considerably, and I had the honor of sharing the Expert Panel stage with new jvAlert Live comers Michel Fortin, Dave Lakhani, Glenn Dietzel, Scott Paton, Ramon Williamson, Randy Charach, Heather Vale, Alan Bechtold and Jason DeVelvis…

Along with jvAlert Live alumnus Sterling Valentine, Tom Beal, Rick Raddatz, Ben Mack, John DeLemme, Frank Sousa, Phil Basten, Jane Mark, Brian Edmondson, Jeff Wark and Lori Steffan.

As always, Ken McArthur has put on a tremendous show, and lives have been changed right here at jvAlert Live.
