One-click to boost your income

How would you like to send one email and make $3,000 or more?

That's what I've been busy with the last 2 days. I'm attending an Income-Booster workshop conducted by Jaz Lai, an Internet marketer who is known in the industry as an email conversion and list-building expert.

What I've learnt so far:
1. How to drive massive traffic for FREE to your website.
2. How to capture the emails of these people legally.
3. How to write emails that will convert these subscribers to buyers.
4. How to automate the whole process....and VOILA!

Your very own ATM.

It's been a very interesting and informative 2 days and tomorrow, I get to learn how to bend a metal spoon with my mind. YAY, been looking forward to that :)

Let's see if I can try to share that trick online with you guys...

*Update: I did it! Check out my twisted metal spoon below!

Think right!

Inside my new book, Asia's Dragons, I've included a favourite quote of mine from Martin Luther King:

"Take the first step, you don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step in faith."

This was my entire mindset throughout Asia's Dragons. I knew next-to-nothing about Internet marketing when I started but managed to complete my book and website in 3 short months!

I just focused on the end result in my head and did something everyday that brought me closer to my goal.

Believe in yourself that you have what it takes to succeed and develop tunnel'll be amazed at what you can accomplish!

P.S. Asia's Dragons will be PRE-LAUNCHING on Thursday. More details to follow, so stay tuned...

Find your Gibraltar

I know there have been quite a few success stories of people who have overcome insurmountable odds to succeed, but personally, I find that success is easier if your emotional life is sorted out.

My husband is my rock, my Gibraltar. He has supported me throughout all my business ventures, standing behind me stoically while I run amok in all directions, with his arms wide open ready to catch me if I stumble.

My work has been my excuse to engage in the spousal abuse of neglect. My husband is exceptional at letting me go as I become temporarily insular, focusing almost solely on my work. And, when I do engage him, all I can talk about is my work, and he has never once complained of being bored.

Just this week, I ran into technical glitches building my first website and spent hours wringing my hands and cursing my laptop. He drove me all the way to my sister's place in the middle of the night and waited patiently for three hours while I sorted it out...all this when he's not even feeling well!

After working hard, it's also nice to have a go-to-person for daily hugs and kisses, and I count my blessings everyday for having him in my life :)

Pearls of wisdom from Mr Buffet

I am cross-eyed from building my Asia's Dragons website and have had no time to write so I'll leave you with these wise words from Warren Buffet:

Hard work : All hard work brings profit; but mere talk leads only to poverty.

Laziness : A sleeping lobster is carried away by the water current.

Earnings : Never depend on a single source of income.

Spending : If you buy things you don't need, you'll soon sell things you need.

Savings : Don't save what is left after spending; but spend what is left after saving.

Accounting :
It's no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.

Auditing : Beware of little expenses; a small leak can sink a large ship.

Risk-taking : Never test the depth of the river with both feet.

Investment : Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

I'm certain that those who have already been practicing these principles remain financially healthy. I'm equally confident that those who resolve to start practicing these principles will quickly regain their financial health.

Let us become wiser and lead a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful life. Opportunities are never lost. It's just that the other fellow takes what you miss.

Sunday, February 15, 2009's as easy as 1-2-3

You study hard, get into a good college, graduate with a decent degree, find a well-paying job in a multinational corporation, and work really hard. Then you can retire happy with a truckload full of cash!

I mean, that's the formula for success and earning big bucks, right? Or so most of us were told.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not asking you to drop out of university or do anything drastic like quit your job (unless you choose to). I'm all for education and a high-profile career - if you're pursuing it for the right reasons.

What I'm saying is, making money needn't be as hard as you think. In fact, I'm going to share with you three powerful money-making secrets...

1. Break all the rules - and ditch your limiting beliefs while you're at it. It's common knowledge that some of the richest and most successful people never even graduated from college. Bill Gates, Michael Dell and Steve Jobs made their fortunes without a college degree to their name.

People often ask what these men did to amass the kind of fortune that the rest of us can only dream about. Then again, an even better question to ask is this: What didn't they do?

That's right! None of them followed The Rat Race-to-Riches Formula. Why? Because it doesn't work!

Now, you've probably been told what you can and cannot do all your life. I'm pretty sure Bill, Michael and Steve faced the same problem, too. But they chose not to listen nor believe what other people told them to. They believed in striking out on their own in the face of doubt and discouragement from the people around them.

You see sometimes, in order to get where you want to go, you need to become a rebel of sorts. You don't have to wait for people to give you their permission for you to go pursue your passions and lead the kind of life you want.

So, have the courage to break a few rules and start living the kind of life you dream of. When you are happy doing what you love and vibrating to a higher frequency, you'll start to attract wealth and abundance quickly and easily.

2.Invest in your financial knowledge and personal development.
As motivational speaker Jim Rohn, author of books like The Art of Exceptional Living, so eloquently puts it: "Work harder on yourself than you do on your job."
You should take time to attend personal development seminars, read self-help books and listen to audio programs to improve yourself. The world is always changing and you need to keep up if you don't want to be left behind. When you start to mirror the mindset of successful people, the money will start to flow straight into your bank account.
Case in point: I just signed up for an Income Booster 3-day course which cost $2,000 and I'm happier than when I bought diamonds. Why? Because I know that I will triple my income after it :)

3. Ask for what you want. It's all so simple. You want a raise? Ask for it! A discount? Ask for it! More money in your life? ASK FOR IT! I'm serious!

My business venture with eight top Internet gurus happened because I opened my mouth and asked them. Of course, putting together a proposal with value before you approach people will help heaps.

The Law of Attraction works - but the problem with most people is that they don't feel that they deserve the right to ask for what they want. In such cases, the power of the Law of Attraction usually fizzles out.

The minute you commit to these three powerful moves, true wealth starts coming your way. Of course, you still have to work hard. But, as I said, it won't be that hard when you've already got the right mindset.

The formula to becoming a millionaire (w/o selling your soul!)

Step 1: Stop loving money. Learn to cherish what is truly important and utterly irreplaceable, and the money will come to you.

Step 2: Realise money is just an idea. It is a mere idea in a boundless world of ideas and sometimes, it takes just one small idea to generate boundless wealth.

Step 3: Focus your desire. Call it what you will, but this is the power that gives you the strength and focus you need to create your extraordinary life.

Step 4: Imagine and feel the possibilities. Nothing can come into being without first being imagined.

Step 5: Believe at a bold new level. Learn to believe in a brave new way – and at a level so powerful and so compelling, that what you believe becomes reality.

Step 6: Exchange value on a large scale. Take your gift and share it with the world and the world, in return, will give you wealth, happiness and freedom.

Step 7: Take action. To make it real, you have to act, but if you've laid the groundwork, your action will feel effortless.

The result: Your windowless office becomes part of your past. Money is flowing into your life – more money than you've ever had before. You're providing value to the world and the world is giving you dazzling gifts in return. Life is good!

Lots of wonderful things can happen!

I've just had an AMAZING week! It was as if the stars lined up and decided to bestow me with a series of thrilling Valentine's Day presents...I sound like I am going bonkers but hear me out.

First, my Her World magazine interview below.

Then, a friend messaged me out of the blue on Facebook and offered to design the cover of my upcoming book, Asia's Dragons and he did a brilliant job (see below for yourself).

A day later, Australian magazine, Think Big, which is available at 2,500 news stands in Sydney, told me that they are going to do a feature on Boss of Me! (my first book).

This was swiftly followed by another piece of wonderful news. DJ of ArtistFirst Radio (with 22 million listeners last year!), Susan Stackpole, contacted me and told me that she'd like to interview me.

I have goosebumps....Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

My wish-fulfilling mantra:

The Universe has BIGGER and BETTER things for me
& I leave my WONDERFUL life in its GOOD hands
& trust IMPLICITLY that it will deliver all
that I want & MORE!

Try it and be sure to let me know if you experience miracles like me :)

Interview with HER WORLD magazine - April

1. Why do you think it's important to have a second source of income, especially in these times?

Building wealth through passive income is exciting because it does not require you to change careers. It keeps more cash in your pocket and releases you from job dependency, making you truly financially free. Case in point: Wealth guru, Robert Kiyosaki's teachings focus on generating passive income by means of investment opportunities, such as real estate and small businesses - with the ultimate goal of being able to support oneself by such investments alone.

2. What are some of the pros and cons of having a passive income?

Advantage: It puts you in control of your financial destiny and you won't be at a loss if you get retrenched or suffer a pay cut. Having passive income also lets you sleep and get rich literally - so you can continue making money while on holidays or sleeping!

Disadvantage: You have to work very hard at the beginning and forgo sleep and relaxation as you may have to take up courses or be doing research online after work. You will also have to invest some money upfront to start off your business and learn a few costly mistakes before you succeed.

3. What are some things of note if one is considering creating a source of passive income?

Assess the time and money you can afford to invest in your business. Map out your goals (financial and lifestyle) and evaluate your options. Identify what you want to do (for example, my book, Sleep & Get Rich!, offers 10 options) and shorten your learning curve by seeking experts or mentors in the field.

4. Can you give us some tips to start?

1. Imagine it - be clear about what you want, write down your goals and set a deadline.
2. Figure out how you're going to get it - make a list of everything that you will have to do to achieve your goal, then take this list and organise it into a plan.
3. Believe you have within yourself the ability to bring it about - read self-help and inspirational books to cultivate the proper mindset.
4. Begin taking action to move yourself towards it - do something everyday to move you toward your goal.

5. Can you share what are qualities that struck you about all the people you interviewed for Sleep & Get Rich?

Three things struck me about these successful entrepreneurs and they are:

1. They identify what really works in business by learning from the best experts they can find. They are usually "gung ho" in nature, undaunted by past failures and what naysayers say.

2. They learn very well, systematically studying and retaining what they're taught. Like scientists, they absorb, ponder, analyze and review the material over and over again.

3. They apply what they learn and go and do the work…and pay the price. They take the risks and understand that no matter how much knowledge they have, only action will help them achieve their goals.

6. Why is it that after interviewing so many people for Sleep & Get Rich, you decided to write an e-book?

An ebook about weight loss is something right up my alley as I can write and have a background in fitness. It is a low-cost business (I spent about $1,000) to start with high profit margins (I've made over five-figures from it so far!).

7. How long did you take to research and write your e-book?

It took me about five months to produce my ebook, The Essential Post-pregnancy Weight Loss Guide (available at and this included interviews with experts, layout of ebook and creation of website to sell the ebook.

8. Actually, I'm not the kind who'd pay to download an e-book. I'm sure there are many people like me. So I'm wondering, how do you market/sell your e-book and make sure ppl actually pay to download it?

The beauty of Internet marketing is the fact that you can first locate a "hungry" market then present the "solution" to them. Before I started my ebook, I did research online (using keyword research on Google) and found out that there were thousands of women searching for post pregnancy weight loss tips daily. This is a ready market that I could tap on.

After that, it was a matter of applying some search engine marketing techniques to ensure that my website pops up when they search for certain keywords (eg post pregnany weight loss) together with pay-per-click (PPC) advertising on the side of Google when those keywords are typed in the search, amongst other online marketing strategies.

Alot of people in the US and UK shop online and they buy all sorts of things (including ebooks). That is my target market, not so much in Asia where e-commerce is not very developed. An ebook is also more personal than a book off-the-shelf as my buyers get to hear my voice (on my website) and even email me questions. I also keep in touch with them via email and send them weekly fitness and health tips. In fact, it was through our correspondence that spawned my second fitness book - a more concise, workout-focused ebook with audio and video formats called Body Back Fast!

9. What are some tips you have for aspiring e-book writers on the subjects to write?

It is to your advantage to know about your topic or have an interest in it before you write an ebook. Chances are, most people will not be successful immediately when they start a business, so if you don't have the interest, you will be turned off after a while. If you have an interest in your business topic, you will not be so frustrated if your business fails because, along the way, you have learnt about something that you enjoy.

10. Apart from the e-book, what other things do you do?

I write freelance, maybe about two articles (in health, fitness, relationship and finance topics) per month and teach pilates three times a week to private clients. I have just completed another ebook called Asia's Dragons which profiles eight of the best online brains in Asia and their success systems that have made them millions! This is selling at (not ready yet, check in end Feb) Asia's Dragons will also be made into a print book around May to be sold at bookstores islandwide and regionally.

11. Do you consciously try to create many different sources of income? If yes, why?

Yes, I want to be like my interviewees in Sleep & Get Rich! which is to work as little as possible and still have income coming in auto-pilot. Ultimately, my goal is to help as many people as possible gain financial freedom and I will continue doing projects along that same vein. The weird thing is - the more I do, the more free time I seem to have to pursue other interests (mundane or constructive). And, having the freedom to do anything I want is truly priceless!
