Where to Find a Cash Windfall of $10,000 - $1,000,000 - You Never Knew You Had
There is a rather famous true story called "Acres of Diamonds".
It is about a successful farmer who risks everything searching the African continent for diamonds. Ultimately he dies sick and penniless, while the new owner of his farm uncovers on his property the largest single diamond ever known to man.
Point of fact: After helping hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners, I'll lay odds that story is true for YOU in more ways than you are currently willing to admit to yourself.
No matter where you are on the success continuum, your ability to generate tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in immediate windfall income is well within your reach. I know firsthand, because everyday, I am paid handsomely to do just that by my clients and associates.
Now, no one likes to be told that they are sitting on a diamond mine, especially when they don't see it for themselves. So please allow me to give you some advice which could potentially generate a cash jackpot of between $10,000 and $1,000,000 almost overnight.
"What's the secret?", you ask impatiently.
I'll tell you flat out: Your hidden wealth is buried in your email list...it's hiding in your client list...and it lies dormant in your vendor list. I could go on and on.
Here's the secret in a nutshell: One of the places your hidden wealth lies is in the trusted relationships you've cultivated with people over the years.
Let me prove my point with a quick example. I recently did a consult with a client who has a wonderful nutritional product. His own clients are very enthusiastic about the results they get. At the same time, although he is successful, he is also cash poor. He needs a cash infusion of hundreds of thousands of dollars to be able to fund the building up of his business.
What's the solution? A banker? An angel investor? A partner? Venture capital? Maybe, but I think there might be an easier way.
Here's what I suggested to him: I told him to write a heartfelt letter to his most devoted clients which tells his story and includes an offer that they pre-pay for a year's worth of his product to help him build his company. In return for their support, they'll receive very preferential discounts and unique bonuses from him.
Will the strategy it work? Maybe. Maybe not. We won't know until we test it. But the premise is sound because the odds are exceedingly high that many of his clients will empathize with him and want to be a part of his success by helping achieve his goals. Why? Because they trust him.
Now some of you will be a bit hard headed and say "But I don't have a product" or "I don't have a client list" or "I don't have a business".
So let me say it again: YOUR windfall opportunity lies in the trusted relationships YOU have cultivated. And your wealth-building opportunities will be kaleidoscopically different from everybody else's.
Here another way of looking it:
Wealth = Opportunity = Trusted Relationships
Now here's the big question. Whether you own a business or not, how can you put this information into action immediately?
My answer for you: Well, the most success-certain way I know is by engineering joint ventures with people. It's my absolute favorite way of building businesses...generating enduring streams of income...and especially creating instant windfall profits. Of the $7 Billion in profits I am credited with, at least $2.5 Billion has been generated doing lucrative joint ventures.
Solely by learning how to become a joint venture deal-maker who understands the money-making opportunities and "money connections" that exist all around you, you could turn-around almost any problem...make almost any amount of money you desire...and live a life most people only dream of.
Try it! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised the results you achieve.
