Thanks for the HUGE HUGS and for a great session. I most appreciate and now have some action steps, for sure.

Jack, per my comment, I did a screen shot of aWeber's option for aWeber hosted form and don't see where I can upload a photo here... So in words, you'll see it easily enough when you're on the aWeber Publish page the 3rd option is "Have aWeber Host my Form."

Check this one out... The Widget is on my Site and here is the link for it, hosted by aWeber. You're all invited to take advantage of this one :) - http://forms.aweber.com/form/55/80389855.htm

I have on occasion used the option in emails when I'm directing the reader to something specific where a sales page is not needed.

In a recent discussion with , +Gina Gaudio-Graves  she pointed out the book Influence, by Robert Cialdini.  I bought the book after looking at her summary at www.askggg.com/cialdini and after finding this video.

#sales #persuasion #directionsuniversity #influence  
Robert Cialdini goes into depth about how average people use shortcuts, or rules of thumb, to help guide decision making and how that can be used to persuade people.

REMINDER:  There is NO Hug Seat Call today!

I hope you are all enjoying the Spring Break here at DU!  I know that +Jack Humphrey and I sure are!  How have YOU been using Spring Break?

Here's a suggestion...

Use the rest of the break to check in on:

*  Your vision for LIFE (where do you want to be in the next 1 to 3 years?  what do you want to have by the end of the next 1 to 3 years?  Literally write the story of LIFE as if it were here now!)

*  Your vision for SERVING & DOING GOOD in the world (how do you want to be making an impact in the world, 3 to 5 years from now?  What difference do you want to make?  Write the story of SERVING as if you were making that impact now!)

*  Your vision for BUSINESS...

What does BUSINESS look like when it is designed to support your Vision for Your Life & your Vision for Doing Good?

Does business change when you approach it from this angle or does it stay the same:

It's not enough to figure out the goals you have for business.  If you start out by planning business (instead of starting out with planning life), then you're not likely to have time for all the cool things you want to do!

Once you've answered the 3 questions above, then ask yourself:

How are you doing right now with moving forward in a way that is consistent with that vision?

You can even ask yourself:

What do I need to do, be, and/or have in the next 90 days to get on the path to that vision?

The next break here at DU is Summer Break and it takes place on July 1st through 12th, 2015.  If you simply use each break to answer these 3 all important questions and end with the 4th question of "What do I need to do, be, or have in the next 90 days to continue on the path to my vision?", you will keep yourself out of overwhelm and be moving forward in a way that takes you STRAIGHT to the life you've been dreaming about!

Enjoy the rest of your break!

Remember -- the SPRING BREAK BLOWOUT on all DU Master Classes is still on through Sunday, April 12th at 11:59pm eastern!  Right now, you can grab your copy of any of the 6 DU Master Classes for just $47 ($200 off the regular retail tuition) at:

Would it be ok if I did another post or two about the special offer?

I have a decision to make
And it's important - which ecommerce program to use for my new site?  In lesson 17 of MTP, +Gina Gaudio-Graves   recommends Premium Webcart.  www.askggg.com/premiumwebcart  This seems like the right setup for me (I Know, it depends).
In other sessions Woo Commerce is mentioned. 
I will have info products for sale at the lowest end, a membership site at the midrange, and a mentoring program at the high end. 
My Question.  Do any of you have experience with Premium Wedcart?  If not, what platform are you using, how well has it done, and how much does it cost?
Thank you.
Hi Gary, Your video and the process makes a lot of sense. I sooooo wish we had this months ago. I think at this point I need to get all the names from Benchmark and from 1SC into CloudNet360. I would like to use the tagging system that will tag people on this as referred by a certain affiliate.

Your Progress  - 
 
I want to celebrate
Just spent the afternoon converting an old table into a milking stand for my goats.  Then i actually got all three of the does up onto the table, to put their heads in the brace, to eat all their grain while I pretended to milk them.
May not seem like much to you, but this means I am ready to start milking - a goal that I have been working towards for more than 1 1/2 years.  And, now i get milk and cheese.  !!!

Pam Takeaway:  "Dale studied and applied what he learnrd and makes a very nice living. Pam studied, chased shiny objects since 1999 and is still broke up until now.  But I see how I can turn everything around with the right mentors and hearing how other people are doing things is very helpful and will help me focus more."

Profit Funnel Flowchart from Matt Perelstein's call can be downloaded at:

In that zip file, you'll find both a jpg image as well as a dia flowchart.  To edit the DIA flowchart, you'll need to download and install DIA at www.askggg.com/dia .  The software is available for both PC's and Macs and it's open source (meaning it's FREE!)

That was indeed a new experience for me yesterday. I am used to being on the other side of the table doing the interview rather than being interviewed.

Now I understand what you are talking about when you say "joint venture broker"  I have been doing that for years and just didn't know that is exactly what I have been doing.

Hey everyone!  I've started a new group for Motivation to Profit on Facebook.  It has a slightly different purpose than this group as it is more public facing with a goal of having an ongoing discussion on lifestyle-laptop entrepreneurship around the 5 pillars of DU's vortex.  Sort of an entry-level to the ideals of Motivation to Profit.  

Join Here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/motivationtoprofit/

The group is also to reach people who refuse to understand and join or be active on G+.  Idea being - go where they are in their understanding and context.

I know all of you will be super helpful and help grow the group with all your FB associates that also don't use G+ much.  

Thanks!

If you love lights like we do, this is a clever excuse to not take down your Christmas tree, just repurpose it. ;)
Dorothy expressed her creativity this year with holiday trees. It seemed such a waste to have our Christmas tree put away when we both love the lights so… - John Aberle - Google+

Just had to share this.  Don't mind the disbelief of the mockers.  They will have plenty of time to consider their error.
 
They should be laughing

Hey DU MTP! Today is the last day to get more than $400! Your NAMS 14 tickets for the SUPER discount. Your seat is Just $100 but it expires today! Tomorrow tickets will be more than $400!

We would really like to have at least 25 bachelors there with us!

David Perdew is saying that if we don't sell enough tickets today, he is going to cancel the event. So let's all band together and get tickets TODAY and keep NAMS alive!

www.DULovesNAMS.com
 
Good morning DU Family! Jack Humphrey, David Bullock​ and I are having a blast at NAMS13! Only one thing would make it better.. If YOU were here with us!

Today, NAMS14 tickets were released. NAMS14 takes place in August here in Atlanta. And we would love it if you were to join us at NAMS14!  www.DULovesNAMS.com

David Perdew, the Founder of NAMS, is running an affiliate contest through Sunday, hoping to sell all 550 available tickets by then. So now is the time to secure your spot at NAMS14!

We haven't been able to finalize the details yet, but we are planning on doing something special for DU students who attend. More than likely, that will be either a 1/2 day session before or after the main event.

Reserve your spot at:

www.DULovesNAMS.com

There is a good chance that David will hit his goal and sell all 550 tickets by Sunday! So please don't wait to get your ticket!

We are really looking forward to getting a good size group of DU Family members together for this! Just ask +Carrie Tucker​ and +Terri TallTree​ or +Julianne Blake​ what it was like when 25 of us went to an event in Tampa a few years ago... Our ask +Josef Mack​ our +Trish Samson​ our +Cecil McIntosh​ what it was like when about 20 of us went to Atlanta last year...

Let's just say that we had so much fun together! And the connections that were made will last for many years!

Let's repeat those experiences and get an even bigger group together for NAMS14!

I personally hope that every one of you can join us!

See you in August!

I have been away far too long and it is time to come back.

Over the last few months I have been focusing on a special travel project which has been super successful (and still needs more time and fun) and I have really enjoyed it and know that this is a direction that I really want to focus on.

It has come however at the cost of some of my other parts of life, my movies, shows and training.

So I am starting all over again with the training you provide Gina and Jack to refocus my direction and I am calling it "Argon ReInvented"

I love the idea of creating a lifestyle that my business harmonizes into and that is exactly where I will be going.

So I am back to MTP 1 and loving it all over again.

This time with the passion of shaping my life, Jane's life and the families life and blending that with Argon and finding ways to give back to the world as I go.

How much more refreshing it feels to be creating a life plan, rather than a business plan!

Looking forward to connecting more with you all and due to the time differences in the Philippines, you may not see me on all the calls, but know that i am listening to each and every recording as if I was there with you.

Love you all !

My Life Is My Passion
Your Life Is your Passion

Technical Questions  - 
 
HI Everyone in the Directions University Motivation to Profit Communities Group in Google+

I did a Google Hangouts on Air with Julie Wolf on Friday, 3-6-2015, regarding setting up a Google Hangouts on Air, and this Jing Video below shows why I cannot do it in either Google Chrome or Firefox, when I click on the Share Button, it doesn't go back to the Google Hangouts page, but the popup window to setup the Google Hangouts just stays there.

Any ideas why this may be so?

Anyone who is an expert in setting up Google Hangouts on Air please let me know ASAP!!!

My Email is lutzjon8@gmail.com, OR you can leave a reply in this DirectionsU Motivation to Profit Members Google+ Communities Group.

Thank you,

Jon Lutz
