Happy 2016 – It’s Game Time!

Posted by Simon Leung in Inspirational, Occasions, Personal on January 1st, 2016 | No Comments

Every year, we make New Year resolutions that only a few of us will ever live up to.

You know the drill? Yes, you do. I know you do. You know EXACTLY what I’m talking about… :)

2016 new year resolutions

For some reasons, these resolutions are often forgotten, neglected or placed in the back burner within weeks or even days after we’ve set them. Not that it’s right or wrong, but it has become a fact of life.

I’d be lying to say I haven’t been guilty of the same thing, but I’ve actually never been a fan of making promises I can’t keep or starting things I can’t finish. Which is why this time around, things are going to be just a bit different. Actually, a LOT different.

You see, everything that happens in our lifetime is a stepping stone. One thing prepares you for the next, and for me, 2015 was no different.

Despite having a much “lighter” schedule this year speaking at seminars and conducting my own trainings, my traveling was as intense as ever, trekking through several countries while secretly building my own team of rockstars “behind the scenes.”

As I always say, I am a big believer that everything happens for a reason. And for those who had the opportunity to climb on board with me during the last 12 months, I believe they were all brought to me by forces way bigger than all of us could ever fathom, and it is in preparation for bigger and better things to come in 2016.

I can’t even begin to explain how my life has so dramatically transformed over the last few years which eventually brought me to this specific point in my life where we have a spectacular team who is a hair away from helping one another achieving some of the best that life has to offer.

In the U.S., I grew up with professional sports and video games. And to me, I have spent the last year building the best darn team I could have ever built. We’ve even warmed up with some initial achievements. But now, it’s game time, so let’s get ready to play ball!

gametime

To me, I see the first 95% of my life as “practice.” I’ve learned so many valuable lessons on the ups and downs of everything that everyone has to go through.

2015 (maybe even some of 2014) was some pretty good warm up. Without the building blocks that were put into place, I wouldn’t be ready for the things that are to come.

And what’s to come?

Well, 2016, of course… And in 2016, I’m about to gear up for that grand slam out of the park!

I mentioned this time, it’s going to be different. Even a “LOT” different. How different?

What makes me excited to work every day is that since I enjoy my work so much, I don’t even consider it “work” anymore.

At this stage in my business, there isn’t a day that goes by where I’m not helping anyone else. That’s right. I’m in the business of helping other people, and nothing, no amount of money in the world, can outrank the positivity you are surrounded with when everything you do is designed to improve the lives of other people.

And the theory is true… The more lives you change, the “richer” you will be become (in every sense of the word).

So what is this game that we’ll be playing in 2016?

Well, as you can see from my last blog post of 2015, my goal is to create 100 more success stories.

I want to help the chosen people to become “richer” in the way I have experienced. I want to help them become more “successful” in their own definition of the term. I want to help them to finally live the dream, and put them in the position where they can do the same thing to help countless others in the exact same way.

That means I’m looking for doers, not sitting ducks who wait around to be served. I need action takers who are ready to contribute. I need LEADERS.

See, anyone can “make money.” Anyone can follow a blueprint to earn a living. That’s purely a business thing.

What I’m in search for are not only people who can follow instructions, I need people who are ready to serve back and help me to help change lives, create successes, and provide opportunities.

That, my friends, that is a Leadership thing. And I can’t do it alone, which is why I need fellow Leaders to do this with me.

It’s not just a resolution. It’s not even a goal. This has become my mission.

I’m gonna do it, and I’m gonna celebrate. By this time next year, I will have these successful Leaders under my wing who will be living the life of their dreams while helping others to do the same thing.

Don’t think it’s possible? Watch me :)

Here’s to a Happy, Healthy and Successful 2016 to you, as well as your family, loved ones and close friends!

P.S. If you’re interested in working with me to HAVE a “happy, healthy and successful 2016,” and even be considered to become one of my next success stories, I invite you to check out my previous post to see how you can Partner With Me In 2016.

Let’s Partner Together In 2016!

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Occasions, Promotion, Webinar on December 18th, 2015 | No Comments

Are you ready to welcome in 2016?

Another year has come and gone. Seriously, where does the time go?

Having moved around quite often in the last few years, 2015 is my first full calendar year to have spent based mostly out of Malaysia.

With a new country, this obviously meant new projects, partnerships and even business models.

Earlier this year, I wrote about the launch of my Internet Marketing Insider Secrets (IMIS) two-day training in Jakarta, Indonesia.

For the remainder of the year, I only conducted a total of two more IMIS trainings – One in Penang, Malaysia, and another in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

What did I do the rest of the time?

Well, a big part of my focus has been to partake in partnership projects with my students to create success stories.

In fact, I’ve partnered up with two very close friends who are highly respected in their own industries (online marketing and network marketing) to do something never done before in both these spaces.

Imagine the ability to rake in all the potential and residual earnings equivalent to the top network marketer earners, but done 100% online like the most successful Internet Marketers with all the time freedom in the world, making USD passively in their spare time.

This is a glimpse what we created…

the powerteam
Simon Leung (Founder Of The PowerTeam), Patric Chan (Founder Of Passive Wealth),
Billy Teoh (Founder of ACES)
It consists of FREE top-of-the-line wealth mentors, extraordinary business modules and concepts, unmatched quality online and offline trainings, and even a state-of-the-art automated online sales funnel system that we personally created.

Because of this technology and mentorship, our success stories are growing at a rapid pace, with many of our “newbie” students who are either busy with school, work or family still able to find success by committing with us only on a part-time basis.

From some of the stories shared by a few of our recent successes, you’ll even see that thanks to our automated online system, many of them are even generating income online seemingly from “out of nowhere!”:

vernon kong

“It’s a money making machine to me.” – Vernon Kong

janice jialin

“What do you do if they don’t believe you? Prove it to them!” – Janice JiaLin

danyelle tan chew lian
“Full-time taking care of my baby girl, part-time working on the business, but making more than an average full-time employee’s salary.” – Danyelle Tan
This is why I love what I do! We’re changing lives, and we are literally in the business of helping people. Isn’t this simply the best kind of “work” in the world?

In fact, I believe so much in this mission that I even hit the road and traveled across multiple countries and cities for months at a time to spread this message and offer the opportunity to those eager enough to grab it.

This was part of my “How To Make USD Online” mini-seminar tour, where my team and I packed up our bags and explored new territories for months at a time.

While in Indonesia, I traveled to Jakarta and Surabaya. In Malaysia, I traveled to Penang, KL, Ipoh, and Melaka. I’ve even ventured into Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Macau and Cambodia. And next year, we’ll be going into China and Taiwan.

And all the while, my team does a fantastic job training and supporting new members to help them reach a level in their lives that they never before had dreamed to be possible.

Our growth is staggering. The success stories are coming in like wildfire. Do you want to be next?

The reason I’m asking this is because my mission in 2016 is aggressive and straight to the point… I want to create 100 more success stories.

Yep, that’s right. 100 new success stories from all walks of life. No experience, skills or technical knowledge required.

All you need is commitment and the determination to be successful. NO MATTER WHAT!

But before you can be considered, I need you to go through at least the fundamentals of Internet Marketing training so that you can understand how our business would work.

Even though I won’t be doing anymore “live” mini-seminars in person this year, I’ll still be able to conduct these trainings online, which means that you can watch it from the comfort of your own home.

For the next several days (and as long as I feel like continuing them), I will periodically schedule in my online webinar training called “How To Sell Anything You Want 100% Online.”

Inside, you’ll learn the 7 steps of Internet Success. Plus – You’ll have a sneak peek at the exact same partnership project and techniques which produced all the success stories you saw above, and countless more.

Simply click on the registration button you see below, select the date and time that is the most convenient for you, and join the 100s of your fellow participants in the webinar room for a mind-blowing online marketing session that will change the way you do business on the Internet.

And in case you’re wondering… Yes, it’s FREE. Consider it a Holidays present for you, with my compliments :)

P.S. My 2016 resolution is to create success stories. Why not make yours to be one of them? Together, we can change the world and make it the best year yet for all of us. Let’s partner together in 2016!

Happy New Year 2013 From The New SimonLeung.com

Posted by Simon Leung in Personal, Updates on January 1st, 2013 | 4 Comments »

Happy New Year!
Hello, friends, and welcome to my newly redesigned website, just in time for the New Year! And for the record, this is not only a new SimonLeung.com, but also a new Simon Leung, and a new beginning. Let me explain…

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you may have noticed that I hadn’t updated my blog in about two and a half years. During this time, while there were months when I was very active in my business, there were also many more months when I simply was not mentally conditioned to be in a social environment, much less make any public appearances at live events.

I won’t bore you with the specifics of my life since my last post 30 months ago, as it is a conversation better had over a couple drinks, anyway. To make a long story short, 2010 was extremely hectic and had its share of complications, 2011 was probably the worst year of my life with multiple consecutive catastrophic personal challenges, and most of 2012 was spent recovering from everything I had gone through and lost during that time.

Yes, I understand that these may not be the traditional motivational and inspirational messages you may expect from me or would normally hear me deliver on stage, but this is a very true and personal story of my life, one that I’ve never really considered sharing. This is real talk.

All I have to say is that I am extremely thankful for the few close people in my life who supported me during that difficult time, and encouraged me to stand back up and fight back a good fight when all I wanted to do was give up and disappear forever. And for well over a year, that was exactly what I did.

Even though I most certainly did have the means to hide away in a foreign country and live comfortably without working another day or talking to anyone ever again, which, believe me, was very, very tempting to do, these friends went above and beyond the call of duty, brought value to me in ways that were completely off the friend menu, and made me realize that life is worth living again. Make no mistake, it took a lot of time, and it sure as hell was not easy, but we did it.

My close family and friends all played important roles in giving me sources of support, strength, encouragement, care and even opportunities to triumph, persevere and move forward, and I finally made my big comeback to the Internet entrepreneurship game in the latter part of 2012.

Today, after several months of hard work building, testing and delivering brand new projects from the ground up, I know once again how it feels to run a successful business while motivating and inspiring others to do the same. Most importantly, I appreciate my life again and everyone who is in it, especially those who were there for me when I needed them the most.

And now, I am dedicated to making 2013 my best year yet. And for anyone crazy enough to take this exhilarating ride with me, I encourage you to meet me at one of my scheduled live events in the next few months, and we will sit down and have a serious conversation about changing your life and taking over the world, because that’s the direction my partners and I are heading.

We have HUGE plans! From company start-ups to new Internet Marketing training programs, not to mention product launches, live events and our private projects outside of the Internet Marketing niche, we are all geared up for one heck of a year.

I am very excited to start a brand new year full blazin’ ahead again to rock all 12 months of the calendar year, which is something that has not happened for a long time, and I want to share my excitement with you. Better yet, we want you to come along for the ride of a lifetime, because we are going to need all the help we can get!

Don’t worry if you feel like you don’t have the skills. It’s never too late to start. The truth of the matter is that we all start at zero. None of us were born with the talent and skills we would eventually develop. Through continued learning and experience, we can build miracles out of nothing.

We may continue to do great things, be lucky enough to build that success limitlessly, or, perhaps, everything can even be suddenly taken from you. That’s life, and it’s not always something that we can control. However, the knowledge you have is something that nobody can ever take away from you. You can build it all over again, maybe even better than you did before, but only if you want it. At the end of the day, it does not matter how much talent you have, it means absolutely nothing if you don’t strive for it.

I’ve gone through hell and back in a period of over two years. Heck, we even survived the end of the world (I celebrated it with an Armageddon Party)! There is nothing that life can throw at us that we can’t conquer. Remember, whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right. Always think positive, and always believe in yourself and know that you, indeed… CAN.

I’m a big believer in everything happening for a reason, and the hardships that we all go through bring us one step closer to the person we are destined to become. I am fortunate enough to know now which road to take. We must follow this path and believe we are doing the right thing.

Personally, I can’t say that my mental state is 100% back to where it was before when it was at its peak, and I would be lying if I told you I have completely put together all the pieces of my complicated puzzle. Even though I have faith that whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, it does take time before that strength is built up. Hey, we need to learn to walk before we can learn to run, right? That’s why I’m not worried. We have all the time in the world!

Plus, with the positive energy and support from my family, friends, partners, teams and even students whom I am so blessed to have in my life, I have all the tools I need, which gives me the passion to move ahead and the confidence to tackle my goals for this year, and beyond. My resolution is to make 2013 my best year ever, to represent the new me, and to mark this new beginning. Will you do the same?

BTW, I’ll do my best to update my blog more frequently moving forward, but just in case you don’t hear from me for another 30 months (fingers crossed!), we can still keep in touch and interact through social media, so be sure to subscribe to my Facebook posts or follow me on Twitter!

P.S. I’ve completely moved servers and content management systems for this website, so the new makeover is a continued work in progress. I’m still trying to work out some bugs and finalize the operation of the website, with about 300 web pages and 600mb worth of content in an SQL database that I need to figure out how to import! So please check back soon or enter your name and email address in the form on the right, and I will contact you as soon as we are all updated and ready to go. In the meantime, please feel free to poke around the new website and check out some of the information and videos from the navigational menu above. Thanks and chat soon!

P.P.S. Today is the first blank page of your new 365 page book. Write a good success story for us to read, will you? As they say, the best is yet to come. HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)

Happy 2010 – New Year And New Decade Resolutions

Posted by Simon Leung in Occasions, Personal, Travel, Updates on January 1st, 2010 | No Comments

It’s 2010 – Happy New Year from Hong Kong and welcome to the beginning of a new decade!

As with every new year, most people are making New Year Resolutions for themselves, whether it is meant to improve their lives personally or professionally.

However, 2010 is different because not only is it a New Year, it is also a New Decade…

When it comes to making your resolutions this time around, you must think bigger picture in terms of what you want to achieve not just for this year, but for the next 10 years!

I know, I know… making goals for the next 10 years seems to be somewhat of a stretch…

This was exactly what I thought the last time I renewed my passport (In the United States, passports expire every 10 years).

I thought to myself, “Wow – I won’t need to renew my passport for another 10 years… That’s PLENTY of time!”

Guess what? I just finished renewing my passport again several weeks ago… :)

The point I’m trying to make is not just that I’m getting old and that time can fly right by you before you know it, but also that you need to set the appropriate goals for yourself and make sure you use this time to achieve what is important to you.

Back in 2000, I was a broke college student struggling to finish my Bachelor degree, eating ramen and soy sauce over rice with every meal, with dreams of finding success and traveling the world.

When I received my renewed passport in the mail, the first thing I did (after getting over how unsatisfied I was with my passport photo) was set a goal for myself to fill up every page of that passport before it was due to expire in 10 years.

For a college student who averaged maybe one trip to Hong Kong every year or two to visit family, this was a pretty tall order.

Before I knew it, a year has gone by, two years, five years, eight years, and I had barely made a dent on my passport, continuing to average maybe one or two International flights a year, filling up only a quarter or so of my passport pages.

When I realized my time was running out, I decided to kick my business into high gear and began expanding my company overseas.

Within the course of about a year, I managed to expand my business from just within the United States to Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and China.

I’ve also had the chance to take personal and business vacations to places like Mexico, Caribbeans, Nova Scotia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, Macau and of course, right here in my hometown of Hong Kong.

Needless to say, these International trips (most places I visited multiple times) resulted in many additional stamps on my passport, and I actually filled up every single one of these pages an entire year before my passport was due to expire.

The moral of the story is that every year, we make New Year Resolutions for ourselves, generic ones like make more money, eat more healthy, quit smoking, work out more, lose weight and spend less money.

Many of our resolutions, if not most or all, are almost never achieved and even die away within a day or two after you have set them.

Well this year, since 2010 marks the beginning of a new decade, why not be a little different?

Why not set a goal for yourself that is higher than what you would normally set, and more specific than what you would normally declare?

How about something that is not “achieved” by doing once, like going to the gym or refraining from eating a greasy burger?

Push yourself to the point where you know what your own limits are, and then surpassing them because you have set a higher goal for yourself.

Success does not happen overnight – You must work hard at it every day and strive to reach the point in which you would consider it successful.

Yes, it may take you up to ten years to achieve it, whatever it may be – To max out your passport with travels, to build a seven or eight figure business from scratch, to attain financial freedom for your family, or whatever that goal might be.

And let me tell you, once you complete these goals and raise your arms in victory, there is no better feeling – especially if you found that you have done it in less than 10 years :)

Happy New Year and don’t just make 2010 your year – Make This Your Decade!

Happy New Year – Let’s Connect In 2009!

Here on the West Coast, we’re finally winding down to the final hours of 2008…

Even though we’re behind most of the world where 2009 is already underway, I actually appreciate having the extra time to reflect on 2008 and to be able make my final post of the year.

A lot has happened this year, both positive and negative, which has resulted in a time of my life that I will never forget.

I’ve learned many things about life (both personally and professionally) – a lot of them the hard way – that will greatly affect the way I move forward.

In retrospective, this experience has taught me a ton about how to proceed with my own business as well.

As we step into the new year, it’s traditional for many of us to make a new year’s resolution, so that we can make goals that we’ll strive to achieve.

Since my business direction will result in my traveling internationally for over 50% of 2009, my new year resolution is to not lose touch with my friends, colleagues, partners, clients and the countless relationships we’ve worked so hard to build.

In 2008, I spent pretty much every weekend on the road, either speaking at seminars around the country or doing the same in other countries, while building teams and companies at the same time.

As a matter of fact, I can count the number of weekends I was actually at home with one hand.

In 2009, my focus will shift to working on building a lot of the same teams and momentum in other countries by starting new businesses, growing existing ones and organizing more of my own live events.

I’ve seen and witnessed the tremendous value live events have brought to attendees, and I want to be able to capture more of that by expanding my brand to as many parts of the world as I can.

With that said, I know it’s going to be a challenge keeping and maintaining my current online relationships, not to mention building new ones.

That’s why I want to upkeep my level of networking accomplished through attending live events in 2008 by increasing my presence online through the power of social media sites and social networking.

Yes, I’m talking about the popular social media portals like TwitterFacebookMySpace,YouTube, and the latest one to hit the scene which I predict is gonna be HUGE in 2009…Google Friend Connect!

Social media is going to be my primary way of communicating with my friends and partners in 2009, and I’d definitely like to connect with you on there as well :)

So please, connect with me… chat with me… interact with me…

Take a look at all my favorite social media sites and feel free to join and connect with me in any or all of them!

I’d definitely like to be able to communicate all my news, updates and announcements with you as quickly and easily as possible…

Gung Hay Fat Choy From Hong Kong

Posted by Simon Leung in Educational, Personal, Travel, Updates, Videos on February 9th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello and Happy Chinese New Year from the New Territories in my homeland of Hong Kong!

This is the first time that I actually got to spend Chinese New Year in Hong Kong since I moved to America 23 years ago, so I am definitely excited to be here.

However, this is not entirely a vacation…

I actually have various business activities to conduct in Asia for the next several weeks, including a workshop in Singapore, so I am simply stopping by Hong Kong as an extended layover.

So – If you reside in Hong Kong (or perhaps you’re friend or family), please get in touch with me either via email or by leaving a comment on this post to let me know if you’d like to meet up while I’m here, and I can make some arrangements when I return from my various other trips around Asia.

I will have private meetings over the next several weeks in various parts of Asia, but my next public appearance will be in Singapore in March for the Asia Internet Lifestyle workshop, so if you are in that area or can make it, that is another way that we can get together.

We’re just about sold out for the event, so definitely reserve your spot soon if you are interested in attending.

In the meantime, I’ve taken the opportunity of being in Hong Kong to record another marketing lesson video based on my recent experience at the travel agency.

Enjoy the video, and let me know what you think!

 

JV With Me In 2008!

Posted by Simon Leung in Gurus, Launch, Travel, Updates on January 5th, 2008 | No Comments

Hello and Happy New Year once again from Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida!

I hope these first few days of 2008 have been a great start for you.

It’s going great for me so far as I’m just about to board the Carnival Liberty Cruise Ship and embark on a private 8 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean with some of my marketing friends.

Some of these friends that I will have the pleasure of vacationing with for the next several days include Mike Filsaime, Rich Schefren, Tom Beal, Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox, Jermaine Griggs, Jeff Johnson, Michael Morgan, Sam Heyer, Ross Goldberg, Howie Schwartz, JP Micek, Deb Micek, Anik Singal, Mark Braunstein, Jennie Armato, Scott Paton, Joel Therien, Armando Montelongo, Veronica Montelongo and my team members Lasse Rouhiainen, Robert Secades and Danny Arzuaga.

(Don’t worry, you know me, I will blog about it and all its glory when I return haha… but if you want a sneak peek on what to expect, click here to view my post and pictures from last year’s cruise.

Since I am going to be out of touch for the next several days, I wanted to make sure that I deliver this message before I go.

As I mentioned on my previous blog post, I am dedicated to making 2008 my best year yet.

This includes doing more joint ventures with people like yourself who visit my blog from time to time, as well as exploring new opportunities.

And to make things happen, you know as well as I do that the first and most important step in this process is to TAKE ACTION.

So that’s what I’m doing now…

Now, I’m not going to explain all the details right here because I have put together a webpage that does just that, but before I give you the link, I do want to preface this by saying that this opportunity is NOT for everyone.

I have partnered up with one of the best experts in the industry I’m about to reveal to you, and we are looking to work with ONLY 25 SERIOUS people.

Why only 25?

Because if selected, we are going to PERSONALLY work with you and hold you by the hand until you meet your goal.

In order to maximize results, we are limiting this to only those who are dedicated to working hard to achieve this success.

Would you like to be one of 25 to JV with me in 2008 in this venture?

If so, I invite you to visit the link below to learn more, and apply ONLY if you have a vested interest in the program, want to do this with me and make 2008 our best year together:
