I Didn’t Get To Dean Holland’s Automated Income Seminar!

I Didn’t Get To Dean Holland’s Automated Income Seminar!

Hmmph… I Didn’t Get There!

Saturday morning on the 28th June 2014.

mf-desertToday is the start of Dean Holland’s Automated Income Seminar in Manchester, England.

As I only live six miles away, it’s easy for me to get to and I know where to park without it costing an arm and a leg, or at least the equivalent cost of a new player for one of the well known Manchester football (soccer) teams.

I bought my tickets well in advance and was looking forward to going there and meeting people in real life that I have only communicated with virtually. After all. events like this are ideal for networking and forming business relationships.

Alas, for me it wasn’t to be and I’m very disappointed that I didn’t get to the Seminar today.

But it wasn’t for a lack of trying. You may recall that a couple of weeks ago I broke ribs on my right side as I tripped up while taking my dog (Flora) for a walk. Flora slipped her lead and ran down the street, I chased after her, tripped up and landed heavily on my right side.

I can now categorically state that free-form body-surfing on the road – or any hard surface for that matter – is not a sport that I will be indulging in on a regular basis. In fact, for anyone thinking of taking this up as a sport, I totally do not recommend.

Since it happened I have been taking things easy, as per the doctor’s recommendation. Lying down flat is painful, so I purchased and have been sleeping on a lay-z-boy type electric reclining chair, where I can control the angle. It’s also great for getting up, as the chair can rise forward to a near standing position.

All this is good, but swollen ankles and feet is one of the downsides of not sleeping flat. Also, I injured the top of my right foot and sprained my right hand during the pavement nose-dive.   So, taking it easy has meant not driving or going anywhere and this is where my plans have unraveled. Twisting and bending to get into the car is extremely painful, as is reaching over my shoulder for the seat-belt. But, problems arose even before I got anywhere near the car.

Slippers or big airy sandals are the only footwear I have been wearing for the last couple of weeks and it is only when I tried – with my wife’s help – to put on a pair of regular shoes, did I realize just how much my feet have swelled up.

My only options of footwear, therefore, were slippers or big airy sandals. It was a close call, but for walking around town, the sandals somehow had that slight edge.   Anyhow, I was not going to be put-off by the pain and suffering I would have to endure. Not to mention the big airy sandals…*

* I told you NOT to mention the big airy sandals!

Well, I did drive in to Manchester and I did park where I wouldn’t get charged an amount equal to the gross-domestic-product of a small country.

But, after getting out of the car, I called to mind that someone once said something like “…mind is willing, flesh is weak…” and it is only when I managed to hobble about 200 yards away from the car, with my right foot, ribs and right hand aching that I realized the folly of my endeavour.

The only sensible course of action was to head home.

I’m really disappointed that I didn’t manage to get there.

Two Day Live Training Event with Dean Holland Manchester UK June 28 & 29 2014

In one of my early posts, I outlined that for the past three and half years my ventures into the online world of Internet Marketing had not really been very serious.

Although I started with the best of intentions – as I’m sure many other people have – I soon got caught up in all the hype stirred up by dodgy individuals out to make a quick buck. Of course, being a fresh green newbie, I didn’t immediately realize how dodgy, or devious, they were.

I now realize that much of the information I found online in those early days turned out to be rather questionable.

Hold on…back-up a little…in that sentence I used the word ‘found’. But looking back now, I would definitely say that I was deliberately seeking out information that would satisfy my pre-conceived ideas that earning an income online was really quite easy. Strangely, I regarded those Marketers offering 4 or 5 figure training as being the scam artists.

In those early days, I approached Internet Marketing with exactly the wrong mindset.

As a high-achieving technical professional, the Internet – or rather, the mechanics of it – were no mystery to me. I was there in the pre internet days and remember the early bulletin board systems that evolved out of the initial DoD Arpanet project and the first email. All of this was, of course, command line driven and text based until in 1989, when Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web as we now know it.

Blah…blah…blah….

And therein lay my particular mindset problem.

Believing that technical knowledge is all that was required, left me easily susceptible to the promise of ‘push-button-riches’.  However, my  high achieving executive level career as a senior IT solutions architect, meant that I was not so easily talked into things. Working in that type of environment also helps to develop an acute sense of identifying BS.

But I wasn’t completely immune and still bought lots of WSO’s, training and other stuff from The Warrior Forum and other sites. Buying lots of stuff in the early days seems to be common practice, even among the most successful Internet Marketers.

I’m glad I finally found Dean Holland,the first mentor I have truly invested in. Joining the iPro program is a 4 figure investment and represents my firm commitment to stop playing around and take IM seriously.

However, there is an opportunity to experience 2 days of LIVE training with Dean Holland at a bargain price. Dean is holding a 2 day LIVE event in Manchester, in the United Kingdom, on June 28 & 29 2014. This is only the second time he has hosted a live event anywhere in the world.

But you’d better be quick.
