Day 2 of "The Ultimate Startup Bundle" launch and we're off to the races.

www.tommorkes.com/ultimate-startup-bundle

Have had some AMAZING feedback from people who have purchased so far, primarily because for the next 24 hours we're throwing in FREE access to our "STARTUP ACCELERATOR" program.

The Startup Accelerator program is a 20 week intensive to help you apply what you will learn inside the bundle.

The price goes up to $97 in less than 24 hours, and then again to $197 by the end of this bundle, so now is the time to join if you're on the fence about joining The Ultimate Startup Bundle.

Here's some early feedback from The Startup Accelerator group:

"I am really grateful that a program like this exists to give budding entrepreneurs some comprehensive start up guidance." Colin J.

"Great "Value Add"! I'm delighted to offer the 2016 Startup Bundle to my tribe. Very VERY well done. Congrats, Ultimate Bundle Team!" Jory F.

"I look forward to pressing the accelerator to the floor and interacting, collaborating with fellow group members with a view to accomplishing all the articulated goals, the aspired revenues and yep, the freedom of envisioned lifestyle." Marina B.
Very cool.

Get access to your personal business library + join our 20 week Startup Accelerator program in the next 24 hours, and we'll help you start or grow your business with the help of dozens of experts, business authors, marketing coaches, and more:

Just went for a run in my old hometown of Holland MI. This place is pretty amazing in the fall (two weeks ago it was even more amazing)

Very proud to be launching the latest book from Insurgent Publishing today - The Growth Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy - exclusively through Kickstarter. 

Grab your copy and sweet bonuses here before they’re gone: 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/insurgent/the-growth-hackers-guide-to-the-galaxy

A bit about this book and why it matters…

The Growth Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy is the first comprehensive resource for non-technical marketers to learn how to market like a growth hacker. 

The book is packed with 100 of the best growth hacks in the universe (market tested and proven), each one meticulously deconstructed and explained in an easy-to-implement step-by-step process (no engineering degree needed).

It also includes 12 case studies from some of the fastest growing companies in the world, including Shopify, Canva, Hubspot, Zenefits, Frank & Oat, Drip, thegrid.io, Adespresso, and Moo among others.

The Growth Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy is cowritten by two marketing experts and growth hacking junkies, Mark Hayes and Jeff Goldenberg, and I couldn’t be more excited to work with them on this project.

Oh, and we’ve already received a ton of great feedback, including praise from the likes of Sean Ellis, Dan Norris, Massimo Chieruzzi, Mark Evans, and Sam Mallikarjunan, among others.

Check out our crowdfunding page here and get access to limited time bonuses exclusively through Kickstarter:

Insurgent Publishing is raising funds for The Growth Hacker's Guide to the Galaxy on Kickstarter! Accelerate your business growth with these 100 proven growth hacks used by today’s leading marketers and startups (no coding necessary)

An idea is a spark, but you still have to cut down the tree, haul the fire wood, and find the gasoline.

"The Complete Guide to Crowdfunding Your Next Book"

- get this 10,000 word guide absolutely free - 

In November, I crowdfunded my book Collaborate via Publishizer (www.publishizer.com/collaborate).

Within 2 weeks, I fully funded my book, raising over $7,500.

Not a huge amount but still a success and an accomplishment I don't take lightly

Before I started my crowdfunding campaign, I spent weeks studying and researching the most successful book crowdfunding campaigns in the past few years.

Now that I've fully funded my project, I wanted to share everything I learned through my research as well as how I put it to work for my crowdfunding campaign.

If you're an author considering crowdfunding a book, read this before you do.

If you're an artist, writer, or entrepreneur and are considering crowdfunding your next project, this article will shine a light on the pros and cons of doing so.

If you have no idea what crowdfunding is, check it out - you might learn something.

I hope you enjoy...

I deployed to Iraq as a Convoy Security Platoon Leader.

My mission was to secure and protect logistics convoys every night as we resupplied our neighboring bases.

I played the role of the fulcrum, supporting the lever (the combat arms units we supplied).

This relationship transcends war and applies just as readily (and importantly) to business, art and writing.

This is why.
"Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world."
