Success is a Habit

It is consciously having it all in every area of your life.

I approach success in two ways i.e. Personal and Professional. Both categories are interlinked. No light bulbs flashing there. However, the successful people I know are keenly aware of how they spend their time and are conscious of how each part of their lives influences the other.sunset-summer-golden-hour-paul-filitchkin.jpg

Let me define for you my premise for success. It is consciously having it all in every area of your life. What is the point in having a lot of money but you can’t run around with your kids i.e. your body is out of shape. Or having a phenomenal love partner but you are unsatisfied professionally.

So many people settle for less than they are capable of. They feel stuck in one or more parts of their lives and are not conscious of how their habits create their daily lives. Let me give you an example of what I mean.

My mind is still in the habit of telling me every morning that I don’t have time to exercise today. Every morning I ignore that because if I don’t make time for well-being and fitness I am unconsciously making time for sickness and diminished energy. How many times do our minds feed us this kind of misinformation and we accept the programme in our minds as true?

The funny thing about my exercise routine is, is that I have it down to 15 minutes a day and still my mind likes to pass comment about time shortage. However, because I am clear as to why I am working out and how it affects every other area of my life and for the purposes of this blog, for book arb, I do it anyway. My mind will eventually give up telling me I have no time and my consistent habit of working out is becoming automatic. That right there is one of the secrets of success. Consistency.

So back to my overall habits. For one thing as I have alluded to I am very clear on what I am creating in my life on a daily basis and why. I set myself up for success that way. This did not take me very long at all to work out and has set me up for life. You wouldn’t set off on a holiday without first planning where you are going, knowing whose going with you, what you’ll do when you get there, where you’ll stay and for how long and yet very few people plan the destination of their lives! A two week holiday frequently gets more attention than a lifetime of happiness.

All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.  ~ Earl Nightingale ~

I am clear about the kind of life I desire to live and the way I live today, that is the habits I create today, create my future ideal – today. I designed a plan on paper for working from home with my partner in life, Tom, creating a life-changing sum of money that would allow us to live the life of our dreams from anywhere in the world using the power of compound interest. Within 2 weeks of creating that plan the opportunity for book arb came into our lives. It was a no brainer to jump in.

First thing is know what you want. Done. Next was to know our why. Done. This why by the way is not a one off. This why is the reason we both get up early every morning to work on our book arb business and to move the needle for a higher return. We work out our bodies through exercise. We meditate to begin the day with a clean slate and to ensure that we are clear and conscious in our decisions. We work out our minds through reading or listening to conscious inspirational material.  We then consciously talk about the things we appreciate as what we appreciate grows.

Then we are ready to dig into the business in the practical sense. I typically begin by checking my emails for alerts on book deals (easy, next blog). Next I go about repricing which is done both automatically and manually ( again, next blog). Next I look for trade-in deals which is literally trawling for free money. Then if I am buying books that day I buy books.

Tom is a whiz at systems and spreadsheets and paying the bills on time e.g. book processing fees etc. He deals with returns and logging all our books in order. He is super efficient in this and makes our business run like clock work. By lunchtime I like to check into the Facebook group to ask or answer questions and be inspired by the community. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons I attend the live webinars to connect with the community and to learn more. To my mind, if I’m not learning and applying what I learn I am not growing.

Wednesday mornings at the moment is my social media morning so I blog or tweet etc. My whole week is set up around the success of this business. Thursdays and Fridays continue with sales and trade-ins and consideration of goals met or missed that week and followed by scheduling for next weeks routine. I am happily applying myself this year to book arb for financial success as that is our over riding goal for the year and literally this will yield expansion in every other area of our lives. By this time next year most of it will be automated and we are excited by this as creating money is about time freedom as well as money freedom. There are many inspirational people in the book arb community who are already enjoying their new lifestyle and we are excited to join them.

We know exactly what we are looking to achieve and regularly schedule times to strategize how to reach those goals so that we stay on track. Our results so far are humble as you can see from our screen shots but they are significant to us and our financial freedom once we apply the system so it’s easy to keep going.  Further, because we are playing a bigger game in our daily habits independently of the results, we are setting ourselves up for the success that has now become inevitable. We have passed the tipping point and I’ll explain how in another blog.

Do not let your mind take you out here with these humble figures. When you can create one dollar on-line there is no limit to how many dollars, or euro in our case, you can create. The life-changing figures are on their way as we know where we are going and having a lot of fun learning along the way. Definition of a great journey for me.

The speed with which it is possible to turn our financial fortunes around with this is nothing short of extraordinary to us and from such a small initial investment of €1,000.

It may be of interest to note that I had created success habits before this opportunity arrived and perhaps that is why success is so expected now. We knew who we were and formed some daily habits of success before we started this or knew about this opportunity. It is easy to believe the story your mind tells you when it says, “I would work out too if I had the time or money,” or that “it’s ok for them (pick your hero),” but you can be sure they had success habits in play that got them there.

If all this sounds like a lot of work then think about the amount of work you could have to do over a lifetime when working for someone else doing something you don’t really like. Or take charge of your financial destiny today and work only when and where you desire. It may be worth some consideration.

Can I guarantee your success? No. But I can assure you that for us this opportunity is changing our lives and it has exceeded our expectations in terms of delivery of what was on offer. Our dreams are in the process of coming through because this opportunity has gotten the monkey off our backs in the financial sense and our horizons have been broadened now that money is no longer an issue holding us back.

Next I will get into some of the nitty gritty of the book arb business by sharing with you how we find deals so quickly and the power of dynamic repricing.

World Class Support

Whenever you have a question, someone will show up to answer it. I go into the group most days and every day I learn something new and I am inspired by someone’s success.

If like me you’ve felt you’ve been sold a pup before when it comes to “an active support community,” then let me tell you I hear you. However this community, that we have found with book arb, has way exceeded our wildest expectations.pexels-photo-872955.jpeg

If all this sounds great but your mind is jumping to, “but I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t make a success of book arbitrage”, then let me reassure you, it is possible for you. The training we received was comprehensive. Within a couple of weeks as I said before we knew everything we needed to know to get going and start making money. Obviously the longer we’re in it the more we hone our vision but we have found that it really is a paint by numbers system on making money through books.

For one thing every week we can speak live to Jon Shugart and Luke Sample on the webinars which are built around our live questions. Their team answer all queries and emails on and off air. Their success is seeing us realize how easy it is to make money through this system and changing our financial lives. The weekly celebrations on the webinar that take place whether someone has just sold their first book or whether someone has surpassed the $100,000 milestone or is moving towards the $1,000,000 mark are inspiring.

The questions that are asked every week teaches something new to everyone. If you have not met this particular problem yet you will and now have the solution ahead of time. Amazing!

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.    ~Anthony J. D’Angelo~

The private Facebook page is really dynamic. Everyone in there is learning and growing their book arbitrage business. Whenever you have a question, someone will show up to answer it. The tips and tricks that are shared there are priceless. Because the book market is so big there is no feeling of competition so it really represents the power of masterminding. Everyone really does help everyone else, even down to sharing great books that are current trade-in’s to save you looking or repricing strategies etc.

I go into the group most days and every day I learn something new and I am inspired by someone’s success. We add screen shots to inspire one another and to cheer each other on. If you ever dreamed of having a cheerleading team for you and your business then this is it.

Additionally, as I have alluded to before there is one-one mentoring available for an extra charge which really sticks a rocket booster on your business. We accelerated our business success by perhaps a couple of years when we had 2 months of mentoring.

Where else in the world can you get so much hand holding, cheering and practical steps on a daily basis to build your business? Honestly, it takes my breath away how wonderful this is.

I have started many other businesses in the past with nowhere near this level of certainty of success or support. Many entrepreneurs will tell you that it can be a lonely slog to get something going. The certainty with which we began making money this time with this system and the support has been the game-changer.

Imagine starting a business knowing for sure that it will be successful. Imagine the power and clarity of that certainty and the momentum that gives you. Imagine having a team of experts answer all your questions every week. Imagine others who are at a similar stage as yourself and further along the road stopping by to answer your questions. Imagine having a mentor look over your shoulder at your specific business and laser focus your resources and efforts to maximum effect. Imagine making more money than you ever have before on-line and changing your family’s quality of life. Imagine you’re only 7 months in and the power of compounding has already shown up in your business.

Imagine also at such an early stage having made back your initial investment months ago and now the money you’re making is all profit. Imagine creating profits of up to 100%-250% on your money which we have made and we’re still novices. Imagine the lowest profits we make can be 20%-30% and that’s on books we bought when we were less experienced. Imagine investing your money and making these kinds of returns with any other investment vehicle and how the world would herald them. Imagine after only a few months being in the position to begin automating this business to run without us. Imagine every night going to bed and sleeping soundly because your money works for you 24 hours a day.

This is the wonderful place we find ourselves and it just keeps getting better. We are so thankful for this opportunity and for the ways in which it is changing our lives and the legacy we can go on to create because of it. It is the game-changer and needle mover we had searched for and it feels amazing to have realized it.

It hasn’t been all plain sailing so read on in the next blog to see what mistakes we’ve made and how we have addressed them. Hint: We were getting in our own way………and it’s why mindset is so crucial even when you meet certainty on the yellow brick road.

Book Trade-In’s/BuyBacks = Free Money

Would you believe they give you free money to build your business!

I explained book arbitrage in the last blog. Now to the other side of this easy business where you read it right, they give you free money to build your business. Yes, actual dollar amounts into your account. I couldn’t believe it when I first saw it in action.

How does it work? Again, we mostly focus on Amazon, at the moment, so that is the primary focus of this blog, but many of the on-line booksellers provide the same service. It saves them time and makes you money. Amazon call it trade-ins and the other booksellers call it buybacks. It’s the same thing.pexels-photo-970198.jpeg

Trade-ins work by sourcing high demand books and sending them into Amazon who offer a trade-in price that you can lock in at the click of the mouse. As long as the book meets the desired condition the money is guaranteed.

When Amazon are low in stock in a certain book this is when they offer trade-ins. The beauty of this system is you can source these books on Amazon itself as well as other online outlets and if you can buy the book at a cheaper price than the trade-in price then you keep the difference. Sometimes this amount can be as low as $2 or $3 up to $80-$120 which we have received.

Amazon award you a gift card with the difference which you can then use to buy books to sell and grow your business. It is insanely easy and really powerful for building your inventory. I believe you can cash the gift cards but why would you when they pay you to build your inventory?

I don’t know of any other business where they actually give you gift cards or credit on your account to buy more stock. The accumulative effect of this is awesome and builds into thousands of dollars over a very short amount of time.

How do you find these trades? The software that we use with bookarb.booktrades.biz finds these trades for us. How simple is that? We put in a topic e.g. chemistry and then the software identifies the deals. We literally log on and find free money. No, there’s no catch. Yes, it is that simple!

Since we have combined the two sides of this business, Book Arbitrage and Book Trade-In’s, we have seen a significant increase in our sales and profits. As I have stated before this is by far the easiest and most powerful system I have ever seen for building real world success. The only way this doesn’t work is if you don’t do it or don’t follow the training.

The training is pretty comprehensive, and the support has exceeded our expectations by a country mile. I will speak more about these in the next blog but for now you have all the knowledge necessary to start a new business model that could change your life as it has ours and begin making real world money.

If you are interested in making money and being in charge of your financial destiny or even adding another income stream that works into your life then for me this is the thing you could be looking for. No, it isn’t too good to be true. It is working for us.

Next, I’ll describe the amazing world class support and the incredible value and leverage that has added to our experience.

So What is Book Arbitrage?

Buy low, sell high! Can it be that simple? Yes!

In a nutshell,  we source good quality low cost used books for our customers, upgrade them and resell them at a great price. There are literally millions of books available to buy on-line.

pexels-photo-270571.jpegWe do not have any physical inventory. We buy books on-line and have them shipped to a book preparation centre (there are lots of great book prep centres to choose from) that confirms or denies the condition of the book, upgrades them where possible, and then send the books into Amazon and other on-line booksellers at our request. So far as international sellers we sell our books through Amazon and as we grow we will expand to include other sellers.

For your information used books are typically described in the following conditions, Used – Acceptable; Used – Good; Used – Very Good and finally Used – Like New. This is great information to have and you price accordingly for profits.

Where do you find books at great deals? The software offers allows you to find amazing offers at speed. Without it you could find great deals but it could take much longer. The software hones the search through filters that you set depending on your budget. This is what separates this software from others in the market along with the training and ongoing support.

Within two weeks of training you can be up and running. Where else in the world can you learn a completely new business model and be open for business in that time-frame? I don’t know of any and I have looked. That is what has been transformational about this business for us. From the very beginning we have been making money.

We sold our first book within 10 weeks of being open for business. 2017 12 15th - 1st SaleIt may not sound like much but after years of not making any money on-line we celebrated this sale with aplomb. When you can sell one book, you can sell any number of books. It hasn’t been all plain sailing and I’ll share more on that in another blog but this first sale changed our lives.

What I have found most astonishing about this training is the on-going support which has proved invaluable. Twice a week every week we have access to Jon and Luke with live training sessions via a webinar. This is unbelievably valuable because we learn something new from every session. All the most successful people who are using this business model say the same thing – keep learning.

On these sessions we can ask any questions and have them check our books live on air. Amazing! Experts looking over our shoulders at our inventory. Also, for an additional charge we have availed of our own private mentor which has accelerated our business understanding, growth and success.

Additionally, we are supported and support others through Facebook. This is a community of cheerleaders and everyone shares tips and tricks with everyone else. The market of book sales is so huge that there is an abundance of room for everyone, so everyone shares their wins, their challenges and within an hour most days we have any and all of our questions answered. Many programmes speak about an active community. This is by far the most generous, kind, informative community I have ever encountered.

So, in short, we signed on for training that had us up and running within two weeks, a whole new business. We receive on-going training every week. We have a community of cheerleaders who share their wealth of experience with us and us with them. We are in charge of our financial destiny – priceless!

Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it….he who doesn’t…pays it. Compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe.           ~ Albert Einstein ~

Here’s the real kicker for any entrepreneur…this business is really about flipping money. The books are the vehicle for flipping. Where else can you buy stock starting at less than a dollar all the way up to $500-$600 and get an average of 100% ROI (return on investment) sometimes more and sometimes less. The compounding effect of this business is extraordinary. Where else can you place your money and receive that level of return in such a short space of time?

Whether you are starting off with a big budget or with a smaller budget, as we did, as long as you follow the system and keep rolling your money over and over you will be successful. The results of our fellow booksellers as well as our own is predictable and sustainable.

Book arbitrage has been a game-changer for us and I haven’t even shared the other insanely profitable side of the business yet – book trade-ins. Hint: Free money. That’s for the next blog. Welcome to the party!!!

Ask me any questions you have below and I’ll be happy to answer them.

The Journey Begins

Documenting the creation of our online-business

Thanks for joining us!

The purpose of this blog is to document and create an easy path for others to follow who choose to create financial freedom through book arbitrage (buy books low and sell them high). My name is Yvette and I am married to Tom and we are successfully buying, trading & selling books on Amazon.JM4J8177BW

A little bit about us. We live in Ireland and have been married for 22 years. Tom works in broadcasting and my background is in personal development and serial if unsuccessful entrepreneurship. That was until last October.

“Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter”   ~ Izaak Walton ~

We began our journey into book arbitrage and book trading after watching a webinar. So, what made this opportunity different from the many hundreds of emails promising financial freedom? Intuition and the guys themselves, Jon Shugart & Luke Sample. Previously, I had vowed that after a litany of failures in on-line business that it would take something really special to get me to saddle up again and this is that something special.

Over the years I trusted the sales person on the other end of the email, who promised an easy certain way to create financial freedom, but with no success. If that has been your story, then I can relate. However, I am happy to report that those days of disappointment are behind me and we are now in the exciting process of creating financial freedom and forever money for our families.

There is an unnecessary indignity experienced by those who cannot pay their bills on an ongoing basis that is very familiar to me. Maybe you know that all too well yourself. You are doing everything right and trying to pay your bills but it’s not enough. It’s not that you can’t afford a second holiday for the year, it’s that the bailiffs are coming to your door and you have no way of paying them. You are faced with another week of adding water to your stews to have another dinner for yourself and your partner.

When this is your experience for years, your lifetime and not a temporary dip your soul can feel suffocated and your dreams lie in shatters. Especially when you know that the only thing between you and financial magic is mindset and the right opportunity. Welcome home if that is your story. You could be about to write the dynamic chapter in the financial section of your biography.

Further on I will explain in detail what book arbitrage is and how we make money with it in step by step ways. I will share the mistakes we’ve made and the highs we experience as we make money with certainty from the comfort of our home, scale our business and create the life of our dreams.

So why blog about it? In short, because part of our purpose, mine and Tom’s is to empower others to create real world financial security. The best way we know to do that is self-creation and with book arbitrage as long as you have a computer and an open mind you can do it.  We love that. The reason we resonate so deeply with Jon and Luke is because of that common goal and in other blogs I will share how they have gone out of their way, in quiet ways to help us personally.

For the record, myself or Tom have not designed this training or software. That is what Jon and Luke have done. We are happy to ride on the shoulders of giants to facilitate our financial goals and to be the catalyst for you to reach yours. Our mission is to empower you to create the life of your dreams with the financial part taken care of through book arbitrage. We actively work on 13 different areas of our lives, more on that another time. Book arbitrage with the software the guys provide is the fastest and most successful way we have found to move the needle in the financial part of our lives with almost no capital and to scale it to unbelievable heights. Are we there yet? No. Are we on our way? Definitely.

Let me be clear. We have added an affiliate link below and should you feel inspired to purchase this software and training and change your life we would be very thankful for your trust. Beyond the bottom line of euro and dollar amount it is amazing to be creating our own financial destiny – at last and to empower you to benefit from the same opportunities and for you to gain from our experience is the holy grail of service and fulfilment.

What you can expect here is our full commitment in blogging our experience (mistakes and victories), blogs on mindset which keep us on track in an easy manner. The mindset piece proves key as we meet challenges along the way as we expand our definition of who we are and the expectations that we miss, meet and/or exceed. Also, we are happy to share tips and tricks we wish we had known early on as well as screenshots of our milestones along the way.

Welcome to the part of your life that could read LIFE CHANGE in a big way should you decide to come along and join us on our journey to financial happiness.
