28 Ways to Attract Wealth Like a Magnet

How to Attract Investors, Sales, Partners, Fans, Promoters and New Business Opportunities

One thing Babyboomers like me and entrepreneurial Millennials share, it’s a desire to make more money. Yet money is fickle and that requires some intelligent strategies on our part.  No B.S. Weath Attraction in the New Economy is a book by Dan Kennedy and it might be your ultimate guide to drawing money to you like a magnet.  Sound interesting? Then let’s learn about the magnet or the core of the strategy.

Dan offers up 28 great tips on how to position yourself like a mastermind to attract wealth and success. It’s all part of reprogramming yourself for achievement. If you’re hoping to become an entrepreneur or are already launching a startup with no funding, this can help get the right mindset to start making things happen.

 

Work Smart not Hard

wealth-attractionThe premise of the book is that you don’t have to work hard to become wealthy — however let’s not kid ourselves.  Success often takes a passionate, hellbent, persistence and dedication. Life is competitive and others want what you want. Dan suggests that you must be positioned correctly to attract wealth and then work hard to get it all working for you.

The toughest part is in applying Kennedy’s positioning factors successfully to your specific situation. But you’re bright and ambitious if you’re still reading this, so you likely will make it happen. You dug in which says a lot about you and what you want. I think this post and the book will help you.

Make sure you share this with others you know as it helps the understand what it is you’re trying to do.  Getting their help is vital.

You Can Do It

For money to be attracted to you, you have to be able to create value for investors, employers, influential supporters, friends, consumers or whoever.  Dan Kennedy is saying is that value is relative and up for interpretation and how you take action to get all the pieces correctly positioned is when wealth will be focused on you. Some billionaires got rich through making junk.  Therefore you have to discover your “junk” or your unique value proposition.

Makes you sound a little like a product, but in essence you are a product and a brand (you’ll need to develop a unique value proposition and a brand positioning statement). You are the core of the wealth system you’re about to create around you and your value offer to clients, customers, partners and investors is important.

Positioning for Greate Wealth take Time and Courage

When I quit my job in 2004 to launch my own business as an SEO guru, I was doing just that — creating the best value I could to reach wealthier, enabled, and entrepreneurial business people.  The goal and the desire repositioned me to attract wealth.

I created my website and developed my site content to be found via Google by my targeted audience. Sure enough the corporations, marketing managers, agency managers, and other individuals I wanted to have as clients found me and hired me.  They were in the US, UK, Canada and China.  I was earning a lot of money and traveling frequently so I had positioned myself well and discovered a great lifestyle.

Unable to control the economy and sustain/build my business, I learned that maintaining success is not a given. It can be taken away by positioning yourself with the wrong people, wrong services, and wrong markets. I can happen when you accept an employment position where you lose your drive and feelings of empowerment — where you sit a and spin your wheels and find yourself spinning and lost.  To break out of that nasty circumstance is something 99% of the population can’t do. They are stuck and positioned for a steady paycheque and perpetual misery.

Positioning for success is all about getting the best people around you as part of your “perfect situation.”  Ending up as a cog in someone else’s wheel is the worst thing that can happen to you. That’s the opposite of what Dan is communicating in this book.

Your Brand Image – Laser Clear and Persuasive

Key to the strategy Dan Kennedy mentions is your positioning – that positioning is your brand.

I created an image of myself, a brand image, that told others who I was and what they could expect from me. I made it work, demonstrating expertise and being fairly straightforward and transparent. That positioned me as a competent, reliable services provider. They gathered around because that is what they wanted.

Kennedy touches on the elements of a professional brand image but doesn’t tell how you to put that all together.  Your situation is unique of course and will require some mapping out. See the visioning post about discovering what you want. But remember, entrepreneurs, employers, clients, and investors don’t really care what you want– they want to know how and what you are going to do for them.

On the topic of what you’re magnetizing yourself to receive:

Our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our mind… these magnets attract to us the forces, people and circumstances which harmonize with our dominating thoughts”  — Napoleon Hill.  

Basically, whatever you think and feel about yourself, determines who will be drawn to you. Kennedy is telling you to take action, elevate yourself and draw better people and better circumstances. Then the sky’s the limit.

Here are the 28 wealth magnets:

  1. No Guilt – feel no inhibition
  2. Belief in Abundance – see money everywhere and unlimited affluence
  3. Break Free of Fairness – Everyone can get what they want – wealth is unlimited.
  4. Accepting Your Role and Responsibility
  5. No Fear – set your price without reservation or inhibition
  6. No Excuses
  7. Speak Money – Be where the money is
  8. Be Somebody — turn yourself into a celebrity — make you the focal point of your marketing — be an expert
  9. Be Somewhere
  10. Do Something
  11. Demonstration
  12. Follow up
  13. Integrity
  14. Ask
  15. Domino Opportunity
  16. Passion
  17. See What Isn’t There
  18. No Boundaries
  19. Clarity
  20. Independence
  21. Think Value not Time
  22. Think Equity not Income
  23. Marketing Prowess
  24. Behavioural Congruency
  25. Act Wealthy
  26. Energy from People
  27. Courage
  28. Pace

I think it’s a great concept and good book, but in the end, your degree of success really depends on your experience, level of insight, motivation, and creativity. It’s not a book about posturing. The author lays out the details of the plan, but to put it all together for a cohesive life strategy is a challenge.

Nature’s Emporium – Organic Food & Supplements

I feel lucky to have Nature’s Emporium nearby in Newmarket. It’s a unique retail store that specializes in organics, supplements, gluten-free, and brands that you’d never find anywhere else. I like to peruse all the novel brands which may be the ones to hit it big soon.

naturesemporiumThe big chains all suffer from a lack of choice. They doll it up with advertising but they’re increasingly disappointing. Nature’s Emporium gets more popular every month. On Saturday’s, it is thriving.

I shop here mostly for the supplements, but their selection of fresh fruits and vegetables is amazing too.  I just bought some deathrain chips, 12 strain probiotics, and lentil chips (they’re actually ok), stuff you can’t get at the chains.

2 stores only one in Newmarket and one in Maple. They hardly advertise, so this is a good buyout opportunity for some smart investors — a fairly certain success story. Take a visit.

Cozy Coffee Shop in Aurora

On the Bean Coffee House is a hidden gem for people who like a quiet place with a little character to enjoy coffee and desert. I’ve gone to this shop for years. It’s much better than the fast food joints like Tim’s or Starbucks. The owner is Frank Gu.

It’s out of the way a bit so not many people know about it. You’ll find in the town of Aurora, at the rear of the St Andrews Plaza off of Orchard Heights. You can have lunch too. See their menu on Facebook.  They have a wall full of books above the sofa and chairs. Sorry about the quality of the photos. I need a new cell phone! (I’ve got one now)

Starting to get the hang of Twitter and even setup a Facebook Fan page because someone very nice liked this blog has suggested I do it.  Twitter and Facebook might actually be a great one/two combo.  Great way to connect with new friends and deepen relationships. Really feeling optimistic about social media now.

Here’s all my Twitter photos and videos which is a journey in itself. I’m gloating about my new Klout score of 43 and almost 700 followers. Enjoying the adventure.

Best Progressive Compilation

Never heard Progressive House music?  It’s basically electronic dance music but it has a little more varied, but serious, heavy and aggressive beats. Guys who play aggressive sports love this stuff. Very energizing and immersive.

This amazing compilation from Best Progressive is full of excellent cuts from start to finish.   At 8:12, it’s the sweet/sorrowful song  Las Salinas by Mathaden (Original Mix) [Elliptical Sun Melodies].  Next listen to the excellent keyboard sequences in Breathe by Digital Horizon (Original Mix) [Neuroscience Recordings].  Then at 26:15 it is the amazing synthesized and uplifting Imaginary by Ethillas – (Markus Hakala Remix) [Progressive House Worldwide]. Then song number 7 at 30:17 Starstruck by PROFF  has an aggressive, punchy beat you might like (Aleksey Yakovlev Remix) [Silk Royal Records].   And then at 36:47 is Let Me Stay by Dallonte (Original Mix) [Progressive House Worldwide]. The girl in white sweater is adorable, but love that beach picture at 38:27.



Give Yourself the Freedom to Produce

Entrepreneurs and the Freedom to Produce

A lot of people have the view that entrepreneurs are a rather foolish lot, addicted to risk and lacking common sense.  But it’s not the risk entrepreneur’s enjoy. It’s the freedom to produce.

It’s the freedom to be yourself and to zone in on what it is that you should offer or sell and who you should sell it to. And it’s from that individuality that you eliminate competition, fear, doubt, insecurity and imposed limits so you can create maximum value for an unlimited market within the perfect business opportunity.

courage
Or shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s belief in one’s self.

We can all get into ruts where we lose sight of the fact that wealth is unlimited. It’s out there. You have to go and get it. This post is about why you need outreach and why listening to your inner voice will keep you from being too small minded. And it’s about differentiating yourself from the crowd as the key to finding the perfect customer or investor or even which kind of business you’ll launch.

And it’s about going wherever you have to find your perfect match. And that requires courage.

And where does that courage come from? I believe it comes at the moment of decision where you give yourself permission to have all you want in life. At that moment you swipe all the garbage out of the way and focus on being you, and believing you deserve the great things that are going to happen.

I often mention Richard Branson, the Billionaire entrepreneur who has launched successful ventures in numerous verticals and industries. He could have stuck in his own backyard, but he knew in his heart he had to look outward to the world. There’s no better example of success. In his moment of decision, do you think he believed he deserved the best life has to offer?

What’s Entrepreneurialism Again?

Entrepreneurialism is a chance to produce whatever it is you want to produce to create maximum benefit for others. And others can be found anywhere. In fact, you should be open to finding what it is you want anywhere. Not just in your backyard.

Happiness comes from being fully involved in a project that is meaningful, and provides purpose and focus. Entrepreneurialism certainly offers that if you make the right decisions.

Entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson generate tremendous happiness for themselves (and others)  because they are fully involved in projects that are very meaningful to them and where they create maximum value for others. As Richard says, go in, adopt a problem, and find ways to do things better.

Look at this definition of Entrepreneurs from Forbes.com

Entrepreneurs are in the purest sense, those who identify a need—any need—and fill it. It’s a primordial urge, independent of product, service, industry or market.

Opportunity is Everywhere — Now to Find the Right Customer

Opportunity is wherever you look, anywhere on the planet really. The opportunity to create value for others is everywhere and the wider your scope, the more possibility you can tap into. Whether you can beat the competition really comes down to how unique your offer is and how much value you could produce. You may end up being your customer’s sole supplier and trusted advisor. But that won’t happen unless you’re completely comfortable and satisfied with your role — that they’re the right customer for you. So it’s a two way street.

opportunitiesKeep in mind that people buy on belief – they’re buying your belief in them, and a belief in their beliefs and values. When you’ve shown a laser sharp commitment to them and their success, there’s only answer they’ll give: YES.

Nothing’s Local Anymore: Your Prospects are Worldwide

I’m against the small mindedness of most digital marketing agencies. The mindset is that staying local gives you a better chance to pick up local companies and grow with them. Every agency it seems is doing this because being local is the only factor some customers consider. False loyalty leads to poor profits.

“Be a big fish in a small pond and you’ll have some success.” Well, are those really the customers that will take you and your company on the road to happiness and success?

The big pond’s really not all that scary and it’s plum with endless opportunity. Yes, it’s competitive, but the key point is not to go head to head with anyone. Create your own fascinating identity and your own unique niches where competition won’t take place. You want customers who are ideally matched to what you offer and and that eliminates competition.

When you create the right customer, you make yourself memorable/special and they won’t want anyone else, even local suppliers. 

Differentiate Yourself and Your Company

And that gets us to the matter of a unique value proposition. You need to know what makes you special, and discovering your UVP is how you do it. Your specialness is the key to being unbeatable.

The Unique Value Proposition is a phrase many marketers don’t like because they can’t see their own uniqueness.  Their mindset is that everyone’s the same, offering the same solution, trying to win on price.

Why not instead go where price is no object? A place where your offering is so unique and compelling, it can’t be turned down.  A mindset of unlimited production, talent, availability, power, and resources, where the world is your prospect pool.

Sounds ambitious, but remember that with the social web, you can reach anyone on the planet. When you fully embrace the concept of uniqueness, you’ll begin to get the underpinnings of big success.

Being Unique is Everything. Do It.

Chrome
Your company and you are at the core. Try as they might, your competitors will always be on the outside. Their attempts to unseat you will only strengthen your position.

The human eye and mind is drawn toward the unique. Anything that is new and different gets full attention. The human mind searches for value or fulfillment and when you speak to people in a unique, compelling and persuasive way, there is no competition.

By being unique, you become a source of fascination and enthusiasm that erases anything of common value in their mind. Competitors acting on the “we need someone local” as their highest business priority disappear into a fog and are never heard from again.

Your new client/customer won’t want anyone else – you’ve become so compelling, so deeply connected with the values and beliefs they cherish, they’d never leave you.

If you’re common, you’re easy to replace. If you’re unique, you’re impossible to replace. Being unique is essential to self-esteem too.  To pretend you’re common is actually a lie because you are unique.  Michael Jackson, Jim Carrey, Roger Federer, Google, and Tony Robbins are very unique and they’ve done well. Their audience? Worldwide. Even Kim Kardashian, who has no identifiable skills is unique and discovered her niche as a symbol of dark haired, curvy, female beauty? Okay, I still don’t completely understand that, but you get my meaning!

A Unique Brand that Captures the Mind

Why do so many people travel from around the world to see and hear Tony Robbins? It’s simple. He’s unique and the knowledge and impetus he generates in people is very distinctive and exclusive. His unique value proposition might be “delivering personal and business power in an inimitable style. ” Is there an alternative to Tony Robbins? No, because he’s shaped the whole personal power market in his own image. That’s why it’s important to be first. All your competitors end up being compared to you and let’s face it, they’re not going to fare well.

Get your unique value proposition clearly defined and get it out there where prospects can see it. Never admit you’re part of a common group of competitors. Avoid getting typecast. Always shape your brand identity in your own terms, not someone else’s.  Then your brand image in the market’s eyes will be inimitable and impressive.

If you’re entrpreneurial, good for you. The challenge is to be true to thyself, since that’s where your greatest power to produce is.
