At 9am on September 1, 2011 I sold everything I owned that couldn’t fit in my car and drove for 14 hours. I couldn’t pay my rent. Credit cards maxed out. My once stable online business tanked. 80% of my income gone overnight. I ran.
Half a day later, I showed up at my best friend’s apartment. “Take as much time as you need.” I felt lost. Then I got an email from Ramit.
“Find Your First Profitable Idea” (an entry level program by I Will Teach You To Be Rich).
Umm, yes please.
I’d been following Ramit for years. I’d bought his New York Times best-seller that saved me $164 by negotiating my 6-month car insurance premium. On top of that I’ve successfully negotiated every single bank fee I’ve ever gotten since then.
In short, I know his material worked. Because of that, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this E-Book.
In 2 days I tore through it. 3 days after finishing it, I got my first two paying clients and recouped the entire cost of the program.
Then I got my third paying client that same month. The crazy part? I had no “portfolio”, no pre-existing work to point to and no references.
“Holy shit this works.”
Not only did it work, it became part of my testimonial toolkit that laid the foundation for increasing my rates by 1000% over the next 7 months. I was hooked.
I began to make more than I ever made with my previous online business and amazing things started to happen.
I paid off $6500 in credit card debt in 6 months. It did so well, a company flew me out to San Francisco to be featured in a commercial.
If you listen to the end of the commercial, you’ll hear the part where I totally ripped Ramit’s catchphrase.
Then, I started getting the kinds of clients who’d invite me to hang out with them at New Media Expo (formerly BlogWorld), where I ended up in the highlight reel shot by a friend, Michael Gebben (he shoots videos for Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins and Tim Ferriss).
It’s like this world I’d always read about and felt so far away was actually becoming real.
Not long after that, my story got featured in Yahoo! Finance for 3 days straight.
It’s like my life was becoming some strange “too-good-to-be-true” stories you read about on the internet.
But then, sure enough, the rollercoaster that my life froze at the top of the wooden tracks and I’d be frozen while swayed in the brisk wind.
“…Mom…she broke both her ankles…”
Icy. The temperature of my skin dropped. My brother’s words catalyzed this weird cold feeling on the back of my neck as a slight wind passed over. That weird ringing sound you hear in a completely quiet room? It was getting louder with every beating pulse.
“She needs to go to the hospital”
The thing with Jamaica, my home, is that we have health care that takes care of everyone. There’s a catch though. People always need help.
“We can get her in but this is what it’ll cost.”
We covered it in full.
I sent the money immediately. After all, this is what I had my emergency savings account I’d been silently building based on Ramit’s advice. When disaster struck, I was ready for it.
This story could have had a different ending…one I don’t like to think or type about so let’s get off it.
Instead, it ended like her screaming for 5 minutes like a little school girl when I flew home to surprise her that Christmas.
I hadn’t seen my brother in 4 years…
If there’s any reason for living a rich life, then this is it.
To be able to see your family when you want and need to see them.
That alone is the reason…
Why I Joined Zero To Launch
If I need to make this painstakingly obvious to you, I’ve gotten results from IWT material.
What kind of results?
The kind that’s on the sales page for Zero To Launch twice:
This isn’t to brag but rather disprove the doubt you may have as to whether or not this is possible. If I were trying to make a decision on this, I’d want someone to tell me their experience. Experiences like the kind where Ramit invited 10 of us join him in San Francisco after his talk at Google.
True words Caro, handsome folks indeed. Swag for days.
Here I met Primoz, Alexander and Chris, Zero to Launch case studies in the making who are now featured by Ramit.
“a few months ago, when I spoke at Google in SF, I invited about 10 of my top students to attend the talk, then I treated them to a private lunch at Hakkasan. You can choose how you want to treat your very best customers, and if you have the business systems to support it, you can do whatever you want! Or you can donate to charity. Or pay off student loans, or treat your parents to a vacation, or whatever you want.”
– Ramit, I Will Teach You To Be Rich.
It was here I spoke with Ramit and Primoz about 6 Figure Consulting, a high level unadvertised IWT course. Primoz shared with me sage wisdom that’s transformed my business:
“dude, join. You’ll crush it”
Primoz B., Sky Rocket Your Productivity.
So I did.
And in 3 months, I had a 120% return on investment.
Get this, it costs more than Zero To Launch. If I could get the kinds of clients who take time out of their international speaking circuit to meet with me in person, then what would me results be like with Zero To Launch?
I think you can see why this was a no-brainer for me.
If You Decide To Join In On The Fun, I Will Help You
Here is how:
1. I’ll show you how to work hard, smart and fast.
As you’ve probably picked up, I focus on getting results quickly with all of Ramit’s material. To drive this point home, I recently wrote a 4200 word 22 part email autoresponder series in 2 days.
I will share with you, never before seen strategies, software and frameworks I use to do this sort of thing.
2. I’ll show you how I leapfrog my competition.
Over the last 3 years. I have built WordPress sites for clients in 65 to 75 billable hours.
- Some say work hard.
- Some say work smart.
- I say do, screw it, double up and do both.
- Yes and yes.
I will share with you how to skip the line past all the ‘rules’ and unnecessary crap that people tell you will be necessary for getting your website up and running.
It can look super professional very quickly and more importantly, get results (read: email subscribers and such important things).
