Radio Silence Up to Speed

When challenges come they are what is best for us i.e. learning curve, correct and continue and when triumphs come, we enjoy more achievements which equally build character and that is what is best for us.

If you will allow me I would like to bring you from radio silence all the way up to speed by sharing with you our journey since the late fall of last year.

Firstly, I must apologize for the prolonged radio silence that has occurred here. It was neither planned nor expected. We experienced some curve balls at the end of last year and equally amazing breakthroughs in our book business which speak to the challenges and triumphs of being in a business that comes with such certainty.

Perhaps, curve balls concentrate the mind and lead to bigger strides than one might imagine. It certainly has in our case. But then we have had a lot of help with this.

“When life throws you a curve ball, don’t let it knock you down and keep you down. Get up, re-adjust, brush yourself off, and keep it moving forward.” ~ George Bronner

Firstly, the curve balls. We had set up a campaign to bring this opportunity to more people as it has changed our lives completely and yes we were to be financially compensated for that. Being paid to help people, my favourite thing!

Even though we worked with some very talented people, after a lot of work and thousands of euro the campaign completely failed. I mean tanked utterly. It was a surprise to us and obviously disappointing as we poured ourselves emotionally, professionally and financially into this project.

Project Empowerment i.e. our social marketing campaign surrounding this opportunity came to a temporary hard stop. We had failed to reach the people we desired to help the most.

Next, Amazon changed some of their algorithms which impacted widespread stores in their larger store. This change which has since been fixed but went on for 3 months or more really effected the sales and momentum of our relatively small store.

“Failure is not to be feared. It is from failure that most growth comes.” – Dee Hock

So, when challenges come they are what is best for us i.e. learning curve, correct and continue and when triumphs come, we enjoy more achievements which equally build character and that is what is best for us.

In retrospect, this algorithm change also took care of a lot of our competition as we rode the wave and emerged unscathed. In short, everything is always working out for the best.

With this business we have found that all that is required is an internet connection and a work ethic to ensure all but certain wealth. Let me explain further.

Right when the firestorm was raging and our funds had been diminished and our store was at a temporary standstill we went to Atlanta (we live in Ireland) to meet up with our Book Arb community for their first ever live event. Talk about another game changer.

Here we met with Jon Shugart & Luke Sample in person and they far exceeded our expectations yet again in their genuineness and approach of going above and beyond to help our community. These guys have already made it and yet they showed up just to help us grow and to share all their tips and tricks with us. And to knock down even more hurdles, more on this later.

Furthermore, we met their mentors who have become our friends since and we didn’t just meet them, we spent the entire weekend with them learning from the best of the best how to make even more money in this business.

“Find a great mentor, someone who has already been through the many challenges of being an entrepreneur.” ~ Jodi Levine

To me, it was like having multiple Bill Gates teach us exactly how to grow our individual businesses with specific tools that expanded our businesses there and then. Did I mention this event was free?

That weekend of collaborative wealth building was another game changer in a long line of game changing experiences on this journey. The momentum since that weekend is still being felt by us.

Into the New Year, roll on another bumper textbook season in January and more epic sales and momentum for us may be worth a mention as our recovery built up some speed.

Whilst textbooks sell all year, as I shared before in previous posts, there are three bumper seasons where hundreds of millions of students buy extra books for college courses. We know what they are looking for and where to sell them.

I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet. Whilst we were in Atlanta, Jon & Luke launched new software which expanded our ability to sell more products other than books on multiple sites.

Now, we can sell a much wider range of products using the skills we have already developed in selling books and on more sites and not just Amazon. I still love selling on Amazon but being able to sell any number of products on any number of platforms means that we can make more profits and are no longer dependent on Amazon as our only marketplace which takes care of our recent challenges. Did I mention there was no charge for this either?

Whilst we are still focusing on our bookstore right now, because we are mastering our skills in this first, our horizon is expanding before our very eyes as these opportunities are available to us and to everyone in our Book Arb community.

“I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. But many others were also in the same place. The difference was that I took action.” ~ Bill Gates

Being in the right place at the right time doing the right thing with the right people totally rocks! I love it that it’s open to everyone too as there is no elitism in our community. Anyone with an internet connection and a work ethic can be as successful as they like.

There is still more to share about the past few months in the next post but I trust you are getting a sense of how blessed we feel to be where we are and to have the ability to do what we do. It isn’t rocket science, it’s step by step wealth creation with our friends.

Next, I will share more of our experiences that are thrusting us forward to our goals and how you can do it too.

Swimming In My Own Lane

Swimming in our own lane makes for delicious progress as this way we have no competition. We only have forward momentum and success pulling us along the way. We are supported on the sidelines by real experts so it’s all systems go.

Sometimes in life we thwart our efforts by comparing ourselves to the swimmer in the next lane. It seems we are conditioned to measure our success with others in our circle i.e. our family and peers.water swimming competition pool

Now that myself and Tom are swimming in a bigger pond with book arb and moving in circles with others who are ahead of us in the financial sense there are times when our conditioned minds can show up and balk at our efforts. This is a mind trap. Do not fall for it.

The reality is that we are creating more money online every day. Since we are surrounded by others who have expanded past the point where we now find ourselves then we are in the right pond as it were.

So we are in the right place at the right time doing the right things. Golden!

Anytime you find someone more successful than you are, especially when you’re both engaged in the same business – you know they’re doing something that you aren’t.   ~ Malcolm X ~

When we are the ones in the room with the most to learn and the most progress to be made still ahead of us then we have the most to gain by being there. The figures that our peers are creating are simply staggering to us at this point but since we are learning from the best we are in the process of becoming the best ourselves.

It is important to acknowledge our own progress along the way and to celebrate our wins. We often know more than we realise and I love when I find myself answering a question on our community Facebook group that will help somebody else just as we have been helped.

Consider how much progress could you make if you only compared yourself to where you were say this time last year.

The only competition worthy of a wise man is with himself.   ~ Washington Allston ~

For us, this time last year we did not have a successful online business. We did not know anything about the lucrative book buying and book trading business. We were not generating daily profits. We did not have a certain way for creating predictable sums of  money. We did not have a community of cheerleaders and experts helping us to grow our business daily. We did not have money compounding at the extraordinary rate it is today.

Comparing ourselves to where we were and celebrating our wins gives us and our business powerful momentum. We are the only ones who are ultimately responsible for it so it is vital that we feel appreciation and passion for this entity that is changing our lives financially.

It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.   ~ Babe Ruth ~

Positively reinforcing our efforts and honoring our progress to date fuels the trajectory of this amazing business. Being on board a train that is picking up speed and creating more profits and momentum along the way is exhilarating.

Successful book arbitrage business is a train that is available to everyone who has an internet connection and basic IT skills which excites me.

Swimming in our own lane makes for delicious progress as this way we have no competition. We only have forward momentum and success pulling us along the way. We are supported on the sidelines by real experts so it’s all systems go.

Next, let me share with you the exhilarating nature of textbook season and the amazing bump in profits that brings.

The Tipping Point

It is crazy fun to make money every day. I never factored that in, in the beginning just how exhilarating that would feel. Especially after so many years of trial and error.

The Cambridge Dictionary defines the Tipping Point as “the time at which a change or an effect cannot be stopped.”

I would agree with this definition because our book arbitrage business has taken on a life of its own and has its own momentum already.

The tipping point has happened to us with this book arbitrage business in that if we never invested any additional money into the business and just keep using the system correctly (and why wouldn’t we, we are making money) and continue to reinvest our profits our financial success is for certain.

How many things can I say that about in my life? Not many. The compounding effect of this business is proving “bananas” (unbelievably crazy). It really is amazing. Even if we only continued to make 30% profits on each of our books, which in the business world is crazy good but in this business is on the conservative side, our financial success is assured. This really is the foot in the door to true wealth creation for the little guy and gal.

Now that we know what we’re doing it’s way easier for us to consistently average 100% profits on our books and that’s year round. In textbook season we can add another zero onto that percentage as we are compounding our money every 30 to 60 days.

In this last 30 days alone we have sold 85 books. Momentum is really moving and it only keeps getting better. We are waking up every morning to more money in our accounts which feels amazing. Talk about sleeping our way to success….ha ha!!

Now this is by no means epic yet but the momentum and compounding effect is staggering already as we have a bigger pot to buy more books for next month and then the month after that and so on.

“A good system shortens the road to the goal.”    ~ Orison Swett Marden ~

I promised that I would share this journey with you so that you too can see how it’s possible even starting on a small budget in a step by step way. We have not done anything extraordinary to achieve this. We are simply following the system that Jon Shugart and Luke Sample have laid us for us all.

Our budget is growing every month because the sales are happening every day now. Our projected year end earnings should range in the six figure category and the compounding effect of that for next year is mind boggling.

The speed with which this is happening with this business is truly remarkable and revolutionary. Can you imagine the opportunities that we are opening ourselves to now that we will have real capital to invest in our future?

It is crazy fun to make money every day. I never factored that in, in the beginning just how exhilarating that would feel. Especially after so many years of trial and error.

If you are thinking, “that it’s nice for you Yvette but it probably wouldn’t work for me” or “is it really that good”, then read on in the next blog where I will explain how to manage the mind chatter that interjects doubt and procrastination into your world and what to do about it.

“If you correct your mind, the rest of your life. will fall into place.”    ~ Lao Tzu ~

The worst thing that could happen in the next year is that your mind convinces you to do nothing and continue to live the same life and have the same income. If you are already living the life of your dreams then bravo and continued success and happiness to you. This could simply add a “no brainer” extra income stream to your pot. Who doesn’t love that?

If you’re not living your dream life yet and money seems to be the barrier then I’m guessing that an additional €100,000 to €1,000,000 in the next 2 years could change that for you. With your kind consideration, I would love to remove that invisible obstacle (mind block) with you in just a few minutes in the next blog. Yes, that is possible too…
