You Are My Guest Of Honor

I am a fan of “true value” eBooks and software tools which can be used for your business (inside or outside Japan) from the get go.  So much material on the Internet is either sold or given away piecemeal.  Other tools or reference materials are far too difficult for the novice to use effectively.  Still other freebies are really just tip-of-the-iceberg appetizers of the full versions of a product, meant to entice you into becoming a paying customer.

My take on all these inducements is that about ten percent of them can help you in the here and now; while the rest of them are just bait or utter garbage to get your name, email address and other vitals in order to up-sell you again and again.  

Don’t get me wrong – I fully endorse good marketing strategies to build your online or offline business.  One such strategy is to get a targeted audience of people hungry to buy or use whatever your niche product or service may be again and again.  Any ethical bribe will do in order to get the fish – that’s you or me! – into the boat.

But once taken aboard, we must be fully responsible for and of service to our prospect…forever or until they leave us.  In this newsletter and on my website, I take your time and your desire to succeed quite seriously. 

The country I live in, Japan, has been my home for nearly 43 years.  I have met with and worked with people from every conceivable strata of Japanese society.  While it doesn’t make me an expert on Japanese culture, it does make me a catalyst for all aspiring marketers and entrepreneurs wishing to build a stronghold in this formidable culture.

On my website I  full-throttle try to deliver true value.  Notice I said value and didn’t say the free word.  There is a price to pay to set yourself off from the rabble.  If we don’t invest in ourselves, then why would anyone want to invest in us?  We are energy, good or bad.  The energy you will receive from me and the material I introduce to you is meant to wring the underachiever out of you and make you a smashing success. 

In each of my postings or alerts, I  will introduce doable or value-added products and ideas which I come across in my daily life.  I promise you some gems and perhaps a few duds, but if you read these articles regularly and start jogging your mind, surely you will find the million-dollar idea or plan you desperately want to find.  Stop being an opportunity ambulance chaser and start laser-focusing in on one idea, one concept, one market that you can lead in.  Build a system.

Stretch your mind every day.  Walk down different streets.  Talk to different people.  Look in different directions.  Vary your food choices.  Keep a journal.  Write down things which you want or need to have for a better, more fulfilling life.  Each morning pick up an object such as a comb and try to imagine how many possible uses there are for that comb (or whatever) other than its original purpose.  Find people who are chomping at the bit for success or have already achieved a modicum or more of it, and hang around with them.  Overcome shyness, one aggressive act at a time.

Though I am not a techie nerd by a long shot, I promise to provide vision and insights which you will not find elsewhere on the Worldwide Web.  This is going to be an exciting ride for all of us.  Let’s have a ball with, by and for Japan.
