Hi and welcome to my corner of cyberspace, 7questionsguy.com. Your visit should prove mutually beneficial.
I gain from your perspective and insight, learning about your viewpoints via your comments and email messages. And you’ll gain from the tremendous expertise offered by my guests, and hopefully, from me as I share whatever golden nuggets that I’ve collected along my marketing adventure.
Abandoning my inherent shyness and introverted nature, I’m now going past my comfort zone, and appearing before the camera. By veering towards front and center, I can maneuver myself towards an ideal position to learn from successful affiliate and Internet marketers.
While the thrust of my efforts will be to help all concerned learn about making money online, I also plan to include guests that are experts in the field of self-improvement and personal development.
It’s my fervent belief that even if you know savvy strategies and methods to build an online stream of revenue, it’s much easier to float towards easy street when you mindfully envision success and believe that you truly deserve success.
A life coach once told me that you can’t out earn and financially surpass the limits of low self-esteem or lack of confidence.
As such, this blog also addresses mindfulness, the success mindset, and the inherent power of manifestation. This alone separates the site from the vast array of making money online sites that don’t address these concepts.
I don’t believe that simple manifestation, for example, will ensure entrepreneurial advancement. This requires a lot of study, action, trial and error, and refining techniques.
But if it’s difficult for you to conceptualize success, and you believe that it’s not even meant for you (and this has been my source of struggle), then you apt to live out a negative self-fulfilling prophecy.
My advice is to not only learn money-making methods, but cultivate a mindset where you see yourself on top.
I intend for this blog to help you towards that journey as this climb can be very steep.
The Seven Questions Guy – Where Did the Name Come From?
I’m indebted to my mentor, Mark Bishop, a highly successful and skilled marketer. He has told me countless times to build a brand and build relationships.
This is very difficult to do in solitary. Sure, I’ve exchanged email messages with folks but ultimate rapport, and especially trust, is difficult to construct when the other party does not even know what you look like.
Consequently, Mark, urged me to do talking head videos. I did a couple but I always found a reason to refrain from this type of consistent action. It takes too long, I get tongue-tied, the camera seems out of focus, and a hundred and one other reasons … or should I say excuses.
Recently, I was speaking with my college-aged son about the importance of taking chances and going beyond self-imposed limits. I realized that I was not following my own advice.
So now I’m throwing caution to the wind and placing my webcam back on. I’ve decided to conduct interviews with prominent product creators, and focus on other people, rather than myself.
I’m now being congruent, taking my own advice, and doing something that is really difficult for me. But like any challenge, it will become easier, and perhaps even enjoyable, with time and practice.
And now for the derivation of the name. I did not want to be like other interviewers who scarcely have any give-and-take with their guests, or others who drone on for hours with their subject. I also did not want to emulate other interviewers who are merely shills for product creators.
I figured that if I could ask 7 pivotal questions, people could make their own minds up about the product creators and their products. I’m envisioning that my questions will be the same ones that my viewers would want to ask.
As I’m planning to ask 7 laser-targeted questions, I thought that I would acquire the simple domain, 7questions.com. But like most good domains, that one is already taken.
Hence, I opted to transform myself into the 7 Questions Guy. This will provide ample food for thought to my viewers, and can be answered relatively quickly so as not to scare off potential interviewees with a time-consuming commitment.
Seven Reasons to Frequent This Blog
Although I’m not a numerologist, this blog centers on the theme of seven. I will ask my guests 7 questions, and when I’m writing marketing-related articles, they will be of the nature: 7 Best Strategies ….
Hey, we all need a gimmick. It’s part of what Mark Bishop explained when he taught me the art of building a brand.
So in this spirit, here are 7 reasons why you should become a frequent visitor to this blog.
1. As I mentioned earlier, my goal is to have my ‘7 Questions Guy’ program serve as a platform to enlighten and educate … and not just as a vehicle to make a sale. I’ll post links to every episode so you can always refer back to any, based on your needs and inclinations.
2. I will not insult your intelligence by saying over and over and over again that this product is the BEST THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN. I’ll leave that for you to decide. I’m going to select products that I feel have value, but you may feel completely different. You must assume the role of an educated consumer with your own opinion.
3. There will be a wide diversity of product creators featured. The more ideas that are revealed, the more likely you’ll make money. (Ultimately, you’ll have to choose one or two methods, master them, and then take MASSIVE ACTION.)
4. My program should be fun to watch as I flub my way during the interview. Be forewarned, I’m no Oprah, and I’m not a polished interviewer by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t even look at myself as an interviewer. I’m simply providing a vehicle of learning. Still, it may prove amusing to see my goofs and gaffs.
5. After my seven questions have been asked and answered, you’ll know whether to invest in the product. After viewing my videos, most of which will be Google Hangouts, you’ll definitely come to the determination of ‘Yay’ or ‘Nay.’
6. I’ll do my best to supplement the videos with written information pertaining to the product. I won’t be doing reviews that just regurgitate the product creator’s sales page or present an overly one-sided depiction to receive financial compensation should you buy from any of my links.
As such, the purpose of my reviews will be to inform and enlighten. While I will detail some pros (and cons), the main thrust will be to detail product info, including OTOs, so you’ll know what you’re getting and what to expect before making any potential purchase.
7. I’ll definitely offer bonuses with any product that is featured on my show and on this blog. (Please don’t be hoodwinked into believing that any of these bonuses are worth thousands of dollars, often asserted by other marketers. They’re not but some may prove useful.)
I will also be running contests from time to time, and offer discounts, whenever possible.
There you have it. You now have 7 reasons to become a frequent flyer with the 7 Questions guy, but I’m sure you can think of additional reasons. 🙂
