I must admit something embarrassing… Not long ago I overheard some top marketers discussing me in private… And what I heard was soul-crushing…
They said I was:
- A Has-Been
- A One-Hit Wonder
And I have to say…
Although the words pierced through me like a knife… They were kinda right. I had once been talked about in some circles as a “top marketer”… But that was well over a decade ago.
My peers were now on stage with Tony Robbins or Richard Branson… Changing the world. Meanwhile I was sitting at home twiddling my thumbs… Thinking about “the good ole days”.
I hadn’t created a massively profitable website in ages. I wasn’t even sure if I knew how anymore. Maybe there was just too much competition these days… Or maybe I just wasn’t as smart as I thought I was. Or maybe… I had gotten lucky in the past, and my luck simply ran out.
Stuck In the Olden Days
In 2005 I created a product that 500,000 people purchased. It was an ebook called “The Rich Jerk”. I sold that company for a few million dollars… And I thought I was a genius.
But being in my twenties and stupid… I spent all the money in less than 2 years, until I was flat broke. “Broke” as in… Selling all of my stuff on eBay… Going through a bitter divorce… And my house going into foreclosure…
That kind of broke. I was definitely less rich, and more jerk. Not long after that, I was fortunate enough to partner with some people who were smarter than me…
And I earned a healthy income for a couple years, working alongside them. But nothing to get overly excited about. When those partners ultimately moved on to new, more successful projects without me… I was left scratching my head.
What should I do next?
Well, for the next 5 years I jumped on every trend I could, such as:
- Selling t-shirts from Facebook ads
- Creating a Shopify Store
- Selling on Amazon FBA
- Being an Entrepreneur “Coach”
- Doing Affiliate Marketing
- Orchestrating a Big Product Launch
None of it worked.
Meanwhile, my friends were posting pics of their new Lamborghini’s on my Facebook feed every other day. And those posts chipped away at my confidence… Like death by a thousand cuts.
Was I a loser? What was I doing wrong? Maybe I truly was the Vanilla Ice of marketing… A one-hit wonder. But little did I know… A simple email to my mom was about to change everything. And help me finally discover exactly what I was doing wrong… Putting me on the road to a massive $50 million dollar windfall…
