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. :)

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 :)
