Whew, I’m about dead to the world here. It’s the end of the first day at NAMS3 – the third episode of the Niche Affiliate Marketing System Workshop we’re holding in Atlanta. It’s been awesome today.
Newcomers who walk into the Niche Affiliate Marketing System workshop are often surprised that they must sign a Non-Disclosure form (NDA) that includes a release to use your picture, testimonial and audio comments.
The release part of the document isn’t the part that scares people. It’s the non-disclosure paragraph that gives people pause.
“I also agree that I may be hearing proprietary information during the conference, and I agree to not plagiarize the work of others, or share this information with competing parties. However, the concepts and strategies I learn may be assimilated, emulated and modeled from others into my own project, but I will not steal or disclose proprietary information to others, it just wouldn’t be right.”
Tomorrow, I start packing the stuff I have to bring to the Niche Affiliate Marketing System Workshop.
I travel a bunch, so I’m pretty good at packing. I never check bags. Even when I fly cross country for a 12-day stay, I’ve got everything I need in my one little carry-on bag.
But this time, I’m loading up a U-Haul trailer and lugging that bad boy the four-hour drive to Atlanta on Wednesday. Some of my items include:
I received a note from one of the forum moderators yesterday telling me that there is a consistent theme brewing among the people joining the NAMS workshop for the first time:
“I’m feeling overwhelmed already.”
That’s the short version.
The feeling is completely normal, but also unnecessary. The number one NAMS Workshop rule is:
Don’t Worry! And have fun!
I want to get serious! Real serious. We’ll start with one very important question…
Why in on Earth are you doing this?
What’s the point?
If you just want to make money, go get a job. If you’ve got a job, focus on doing a better job. We love people who do a good job. If it weren’t for those who do their job well, the big ol’ machine we call The Economy would come to a screeching halt.
But why are YOU so focused on building an independent business that may be risky, hard, and even require some investment? It may even require you to fail a little bit. Success is not guaranteed.
Everyone eventually fails. But how you look at it determines your success. (Topic for another day.)
You better have a Big Reason Why (BRW)you’re jumping into this world. Here’s mine above – one of mine. You’ll meet the other when you register at NAMS3 on Friday a.m. She runs the registration desk for me and much, much more.
Today, I’m going to prove to you that you have a money-making niche inside your head (and heart) that you’re probably ignoring.
And I’ll prove that you can get it out and have it working for you in almost no time by following a simple 3-step process and follow up with a fun game.
1) What’s your passion?
Make a list of all the things you love to do no matter how silly other people think it is. This is your passion list. You should have as many items on this list as possible. Mine was more than 100.
I love the Niche Affiliate Marketing System for several reasons, but one of the main rewards is that I get to meet incredible people. Really, it’s more than that. I get to spend quality time with them.
For example, I’ve known Kathleen Gage less than a year now. I went to Willie Crawford’s 50th birthday bash last year (young whipper-snapper that he is) because I wanted to meet Kathleen. I’d heard her speak with Willie for an hour on his podcast a few months earlier.
