She called me a traitor, then asked me to speak at her live event

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

When I first started dipping my toe in the online business world, one of the first live events I attended was Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula Live.
It is hard describe how the energy and camaraderie of an event like that can motivate you. I was soaking it all up, and loved meeting all the other like-minded people who were there.
One friend I made at that very first event (this was the spring of 2017) was a gal named Thembi. We sat next to each other the last day of the event, in the front row to the left of the stage. There were likely 1500 people in attendance.
Just before lunchtime, Jeff starting talking about his 12k per year mastermind called Launch Club. There was a special lunch for anyone who was interested in hearing more.
Thembi, having more experience with Product Launch Formula than I did, leaned over and said, “You don’t need that mastermind, just follow the course you already have.”
Well, I went to lunch and decided otherwise.
I figured if I could accelerate my learning by being in that mastermind, I could easily make that investment back sooner than by figuring it all out myself.
So I joined. When I did, they changed out my event lanyard to one that said Launch Club on it.
When I returned to my seat next to Thembi after lunch, I sat down slowly and inconspicuously.
It didn’t work.
Thembi turned to greet me, saw the lanyard, and said… “You traitor!”
She was kidding (kinda…).
A year later, we saw each other at the same event and asked me how the mastermind was. I told her it was excellent and she would be a great addition.
She joined, and fast forward another year, she was standing on stage after winning the coveted Launch Club Spokesperson Award.
And Jeff told the audience she could be the next Tony Robbins if she wants to.
Needless to say, Thembi and I have been close friends ever since.
In fact, she just invited me to speak at her live virtual event next week. Her events are pretty amazing, and she has had guests like Jeff Walker, Tony Graziosi, among many others.
That is why I love attending events (live or virtual), speaking, and connecting with others.
The event is called and geared at helping you build and scale an online business in 2022. It is a paid live event, but there is an early bird rate right now and it is pretty low for a 3 day live virtual event. Scale Up

Start Planning Your 2022 Virtual Event This Week

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

Will this be the year of virtual summits?
It will for me, and it can be for you.
Just last week I was asked to speak at a live virtual event on January 20th by my friend Thembu Bheka. She has shared the stage with Tony Robbins, Dean Graziosi, Russell Brunson and Jeff Walker, among others. The reason she invited me to speak?
I made a name for myself in my niche. How did I do it?
Virtual Summits and their unique ability to connect you with influencers. In the past year, I have connected with over 100 influencers that have helped me grow my business and career.
Connecting with others has helped me above all else.
And you can do it too. Leap. Love. Grow.

Are you warmed up yet?

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

It was a chilly fall night, back in the day (high school glory days).
I was a mere sophomore. At that time, our high school only consisted of sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Freshman attended middle school.
It was a varsity soccer game, our first of the season. It was also a night game, under the lights. The crowd was always a little larger at night games, and things always felt a level or two more important.
It turned out to be very important for me. Sophomore’s didn’t normally get to play on varsity, our team had been pretty good for a few years.
Early in the first half, the coach shouted over, “Brehm go in for Kabay.”
I always warmed up and stretched well, but thank goodness I had this time. It would be my first appearance in a varsity match.
I sprinted onto the field to take my position on the front line (probably a little too fast, revealing my eagerness and youthful exuberance).
My best friend in the stands yelled, “Let’s go Brehm!!!!” That made me proud and nervous at the same time.
Then the whistle sounded, and the rest was history. I played well, and became an integral part of the team immediately. I played every game and more often then not started each game the rest of the season.
It is a little scary to think what might have happened had I not prepared myself for that moment. There were years of practice and then the real time stretching and keeping loose right up until the coach called for me to go in.
Being ready to jump into the game was the key.
Are you ready to jump into the game? Leap. Love. Grow.

4.5 Million in the US

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

In November 2021, it is estimated that 4.5 million Americans walked away from their jobs.
The prior month, that number was 4.2 million. In fact, between April and September of 2021, over 24 million Americans quit their jobs.
The reasons for this are being spun in all different directions. The mainstream media says it is because “the economy is so good.” It actually may be because of “new job mandates.”
Regardless, I also suspect many are realizing they can do their own thing, and are taking the chance to do it now while they have a good reason.
In fact, I have at least four clients hosting virtual summits this year based on the theme of moving from the corporate world to the entrepreneurial world.
I expect it to be an exciting year. And the more people we can make entrepreneurs, the better the world will be.
That said, I am hosting an impromptu training tomorrow (January 6) 2pm EST, called where we discuss what you need to do in 2022 and how to get it done.

Getting Off The Amazon Ads Hamster Wheel

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

When I was younger, I wondered whether or not I was lazy.
I suppose by most people’s standards, I was.
I just didn’t like doing lots of work for little gain. Hard work for large gains? Yes. Medium to hard work, for small gains? Not usually.
When I realized at my public school I could work all out at 100% to get grades of the A and B type, but work at about 50% effort to get all Bs on my report card…
…well, you can guess what I did (to my Mother’s dismay).
So, when I figured out the long term “effort versus outcome” ratio for selling books using Amazon Ads (and other types of ads), I decided to set it and forget it.
I am not saying not to publish or not to run ads. But there are far better ways to create income from your books than royalties.
As Nick Nanton says, “You make money by a book, not by having a book.” selling
The truth is all it takes is a little simple math.
If you are selling your Kindle Book at 99¢, Amazon will give you a 35% royalty. That is 34¢ a copy. Want to make 10k a month? You need to sell 29,412 copies a month. That is before ad spending which, if you are great at it, can come in at 50% ACOS (Average Cost of Sale). That simply means you need to sell 58,824 (each month). What if my book is $2.99?
Amazon gives you 70% royalty. You still need to sell 4,785 each month for 10k before ad spend.
These are doable for some, but probably not for most. The real problem is Online Ads Cartel makes you believe you can do it, and then when you don’t you feel like you failed.
Not true. There are over 6 million books on Amazon. If you are making 10k you have accomplished something amazing. Why all the doom and gloom, Ray?
This is actually a positive once you are aware of it. Because you can still accomplish amazing things with your book, by changing your perspective. Being a successful author is not about the number on your royalty check.
Back to Nick’s quote, you make money by having a book. The book is your introduction to someone. What you do next can have an even bigger impact on them and on your bank account as well.
It is all about building an online business around your book (this can be full or part time). When you help your readers take that next step, it is a win-win.
Heck, if you are like me, you are probably wondering at this point what to do next. I know I was.
And here is the great news, you will be one of the few that takes that step to the next level. Most won’t try. They would rather keep trying to siphon a few more cents per copy.
I am hosting an impromptu training this Thursday 2pm EST, called where we discuss what you need to do in 2022 and how to get it done.

A Counterintuitive Way to Natural Immunity

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

10 or so days ago I sent out an email about the Rankin / Bass classic character the Burgermeister Meisterburger and how he banned toys in his town.
I then added that there appeared to be some cities in the US and around the world that seemed to be taking the Burgermeister’s lead.
To which I received the following rant:
You make your living from the US but cannot help but try to put us down. Please delete my email from your list! **sh*l*!

It reminded me how far I have come in my business life, that I not only welcome comments like that, I like adding commentary that flushes those types out.
If pointing out that there might be pockets of tyranny in the world triggers some people, there is not much I can do.
In the end, her and I both agree, she should not be on my list.
It wasn’t always easy to ignore trolls and the “triggered.”
But now I seem to have acquired this natural immunity to them. How?
Within a day or two from that reply, I received a text from Honorée Corder that said…
Happy New Year! PS I love your emails!

If you don’t know Honorée, she is an icon in the publishing industry. She is the author of a dozen books, notably many books in The Miracle Morning series with Hal Elrod. She also has high end courses, services and is high in demand as a publishing expert.
So, to get a text on my phone from her about my emails enhances my natural immunity to the negative stuff.
I also received some great unsolicited feedback recently from Derek Doepker and Rob Kosberg. Both are my heroes. Both added fuel to my natural immunity.
It is such a great feeling to have those kind of relationships. Each of them were built by hosting virtual summits.
You can have it too. Natural immunity to the haters, trolls, and negative reviews.
Just make 2022 your year to build it. Leap. Love. Grow.

P.S. If you are interested in building relationships this year, consider hosting a virtual summit. If you want help figuring out how to do that, including coaching, check out Summit Lab. We start next week: https∶//www.raybrehm.com/summitlab (https://email.e.berserkermail.com/c/eJxFjrFOxDAQBb8m7ojWa8e4ccHpQCAESFBBg-z1mkQXXw7HEN19PUmF3lSvGE10CVPUKAaHgAgSFBgAkK0C25FRia9VJBuw0cBt4DJzOXDJfhhbmrLonVUpGG28Xec7E4nRM6nQsSGVLInR9bWe5kbdNHi3sixLW_w5FO7z5liv-SfnoY4-CN7M937u3dWb_v7Epw_Yvdw-vu_Pu9fnXytoOlZP9SE6I3UI0bCRUUtWMUrqAK0VxW32cfrCdkqHiz2u6Rd_Gv6r_wAUxU31) Copyright © 2021 Ray Brehm.

Make just One Resolution for 2022

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

Happy New Year and welcome to 2022!
New Years Day is a day we can overburden ourselves with resolutions and goals.
What I have found is that simplicity is key in all things.
There is no need for a long list of crazy goals or resolutions.
So for 2022, I am keeping it simple.
Here’s mine: Get to the second try as soon as possible.
What does that mean? No waiting for perfection. No waiting for some phantom level of success before starting. Don’t try to figure out what could go wrong. Get that first try done, and figure the rest of it out that way. Not sure about the topic for your summit? Just do it and you will figure it out. Not quite sure about your manuscript? Hit publish and see. Not sure if you are ready to start a podcast? Hit record and get the first episode done and posted.
Most of the time we worry about being so new at something, that we wonder… what will happen if we mess up?
If you are super new, nobody will know if you do and…
everyone (I mean everyone) messes something up the first time. But you never know what that will be until you try it first.
Happy New Year! Leap. Love. Grow.
