Ari Publishing: How to Be Successful.



Ari Publishing: How to Be Successful

First, let me point out that fame and fortune are not the sole indicators of success. We need only look at the many suicides of the rich and famous to make that point.

It’s been said many factors that must come together in order to be considered a success. This isn’t true either.

A successful person is someone who has achieved the life they’ve always wanted.

That’s it.

Studies have shown that the happiest people financially make about $75,000 a year. 
This may have increased a bit due to inflation but it’s still a pretty good ballpark figure.

Before I go any further let me lay my cards on the table. I am not rich, I am not famous.  (Although I’m getting pretty well-known.) I do not drive a fancy car, do not live in a fancy house and do not have a large portfolio of investments.

But I am a success because I have the life I want. I do not have to get up at some ungodly hour and drive to some job on a frozen North Country morning. I don’t have to dress up. I eat whenever I want, sleep whenever I want. I love the work I do and the professional people I do business with.

Unfortunately, I have wasted the better part of my life. Had I known then what I know now, I probably would have had far more success and at a much earlier age.

Here’s where I made my mistake.

When I was young it was drummed into me that to get a good job I must get a good education. I was warned that if I didn’t obey the rules my disobedience would go on my permanent record and I would be subject to a life of bummery and fiscal devastation.

What they didn’t tell me was that I could have avoided all of that nonsense if I just went into business for myself.

Egad!

And so I followed the rules and spent the better part of my life miserable doing a corporate job I hated. I didn’t think I had a choice. What else was I going to do to make a living?

After years of submissions I signed a book publishing deal so when the Great Recession hit and I was downsized from my day job I believed I simply needed to write more books and financially I’d be just fine.

The problem was my publisher ran into serious financial problems and closed shop.

Uh-oh.

So I started my own publishing company. Unfortunately shortly afterward the writer’s strike hit and the market was inundated with books written by the striking writers.

Things did not bode well for our hero. Due to the increased competition, lack of advertising money needed to launch fiction books and a decreasing market of book stores, things got ugly fast.

So I sat down and analyzed my business. And suddenly realized I didn’t have one. In fact I knew very little about business and with time and finances running out I realized that I had better learn. And so instead of bemoaning cruel fate, I immersed myself in the field of business and marketing. I found out who were the best in those fields and studied everything they wrote on the topic.

And armed with that information I was able to turn things around. www.aripublishing.com is doing well selling books and producing books for busy professionals. The road was long and hard and at times scary as hell but I was determined to have the life I wanted and I now have it. And that, my friends, is the real definition of success.

So here’s what you do.

First: Go somewhere private where you can just sit back and think without interruption. Then take a long hard look at your life and figure out what you like about it and what you don’t like. Then ask yourself how much misery would you be willing to withstand in order to get rid of the things you don’t like and replace them with the things you do. And be HONEST! A lot of people give lip service to what they really want to do but balk when they realize how much effort is required to actually accomplish it.

Set daily goals. Do not go to bed until they are done. Stay ahead of the curve. Remember whatever can go wrong will go wrong at the worst possible time. Take the time to figure out what it is you want to do, how to make money doing it then use your spare time building that business.

One thing that really ticks me off about the so-called education I received growing up is the lack of business training provided by schools. We are the largest capitalistic nation in existence yet our schools don’t teach the very subject we all depend upon to make a living and stay alive. My education, in addition to the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, was three years of Latin, advanced trig, Earth science, biology, geography, chemistry and reading a ton of so-called classic books.

None of which is presently of any use to me.

There is SO MUCH INCORRECT INFORMATION regarding business that it’s no small wonder that the economy nearly collapsed! So here are some stark realities regarding business, your future, and the likelihood of your success.

The most important skill you need is the knowledge of how to make money. If you presently don’t know how to make money without having a job, then you need to learn right now. Because you can’t be a success if you’re constantly sweating rent. If your idea of how to make money is getting a job and working for someone else, then YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR FATE AND THAT OF YOUR FAMILY INTO THE HANDS OF A STRANGER and will find yourself in serious trouble every ten years or so when the economy goes into a recession and you’re laid off.

You believe that you should get a raise each year you are on the job. Why? Are you still doing the same job you were doing last year? Still putting in the same amount of hours? If so, then why should you receive more money? If you want to make more money then you should do something that generates more business. Increase your skills, find a way to become more productive, eliminate waste, make yourself irreplaceable by doing more, knowing more and by setting an example.

You believe a college degree automatically guarantees a good job and good income. Not anymore. I’m not saying don’t get one, I’m saying make sure the career you’re going so deeply into debt to acquire isn’t being out-sourced or about to be replaced by advancing technology. Lifelong student loan debt is a major roadblock to having the life you want.

You believe government statistics. The so-called economic recovery is smoke and mirrors. The NEW jobs they’re quoting are minimum wage jobs and their unemployment statistics don’t factor in those people who can’t find a job and have gone off the grid. The fact is the mid-level and manufacturing jobs are being eliminated by advancing technology. Is your job becoming obsolete? If so, what are you doing to improve your value in the marketplace? If nothing, then go to http://theundergroundcollege.com and scroll through the opportunities presented there.

Financial security is a necessity for success. And now that I’ve achieved it I can show you how its done. Being a struggling businessman made me realize that there must be thousands of others out there in the same boat. So I took what I had learned to turn my business around and outlined it in a book. It’s called The Best Book on How to Make Money Online. A Step byStep Guide. In it I show you how to set up an online business and how to make money with it. It’s pure nuts and bolts. If you want to create additional income, this is how its done, simple as that.

The road to success is just a road, to get to success you must take action and if you start today, you’ll be one step closer by tomorrow.

How to sell ANYTHING Online



The Best Book on How to Sell ANYTHING Online


Although I’m known as a fiction writer with a very popular action/thriller series titled “Revolution in America” under my belt, I’ve also written several non-fiction books on how to generate additional income that have sold very well.

Strangely, they are just as frightening as my action/thriller books.

When I wrote the first Revolution in America book Noon’s Rise to Power,
I wanted to show what the end result would be if multinational businesses fully controlled the federal government.

But I digress.

You clicked on this link to learn more about how to sell anything online. Smart move, because in the near future having that information will likely keep you from becoming homeless.

“Calm down, Chicken Little,” you say. “It’s not that bad.”

“Yeah… it is.”

When you must fully rely on a stranger’s good will to feed and house your family you’re taking a terrible risk. When you take out massive loans to pay for an education to work a job that may very possibly be outsourced or handled by evolving technology, you are taking a terrible risk. Frankly, if you have only one source of income, you are playing Russian roulette, not only with your future well-being, but with your family’s as well.

Basically what I am teaching here is survival training.

A little back story. Five years ago I was downsized from a company I had worked for over ten years. It was a good company and I intended to work there until retirement. However, The Great Recession hit and just like me, millions found themselves out of a job. What made matters worse was that I was in my early fifties and employers were not interested in hiring experienced professionals. They wanted young, cheap and able to work long hours for little pay.

That is exactly what they got because the young college grads had run up student loan debt in the hundreds of thousands and suddenly discovered that the jobs they had worked so hard to prepare for were no longer available. Many of them are still working two and three jobs and haven’t had a day off in months and sometimes years.

They tell themselves the economy will eventually pick up and they will finally get that high paying professional position they had worked so hard to achieve.

The realities are strongly against that happening.

“But that’s what happened following every other recession,” you say.

That’s true but the ever evolving technologies, (IBM’s Watson Computer and the 3D Printer just to give two examples) are eliminating jobs faster than new positions can be created.

The global economy is here and if you don’t adapt you will be crushed. And yes, that sounds like I’m trying to scare you, and yes, I AM! You need to be scared and more importantly, you need to take action because I know what I’m talking about.

When young men are sent to war they are first trained. They learn what to expect and how to respond. Most never see combat, but do you think they regret learning how to defend themselves and stay alive in life threatening situations?

Of course not. It’s information they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. And although I’ve never seen combat, I HAVE, however, had my share of emotional and financial battles that I never saw coming. In the period of two years, everything I had built throughout my entire life came crashing down. I had gone from being a happy, successful family man to a guy who had become broke, alone and valueless in the job marketplace.

Dark times.

Realizing that if I didn’t take action I might wind up out on the street, I went online to see if there were ways to make money online. There were! But what I didn’t realize was that there was tons of useless information to sift through to get to the real meat. I spent every spare minute doing this and after three and a half years I FINALLY put all the pieces together and began making money doing it.

Fortunately you can very possibly learn what took me over three years to find and piece together, in three short WEEKS.

To date I have written three books explaining the process. The first one. The Best Book on How to Start Over: Rebuild Your Mind, Body and Finances    is the basic training. In the first section you learn how to develop a positive frame of mind, and destroy negative thoughts. This is essential, you will only become successful once you are convinced that it is possible and that you can do it. In The Body section, you learn how to get your body in top shape through proper nutrition and reasonable exercise. In the Finances section you learn about the new economy, how it works, how it will affect you and your family and how you can create additional income streams and stop relying on jobs and bosses to make ends meet.

In the second book The Best Book on How to Make Money Online,
you learn exactly what methods work and which don’t, what affiliates are, how to create your own online business, how to find a money generating niche and how to build upon it to make a profitable and consistent income that can be scaled up to make you independently wealthy.






And lastly, The Best Book on How to Sell ANYTHING Online
teaches you the marketing and sales skills necessary to run a successful online business. Your learn how to create a traffic grabbing sales letter, how to write an eye catching ad that will generate customers and how your business card can become an effective selling tool. You will learn that online selling isn’t difficult, and requires only a few, proven to work, marketing tools that attract buyers. And these methods work whether you are selling books like me, or products, services or information.

I don’t want to come off as a fear monger but you need only look around to see how drastically the economy has changed over the last few years. Underemployment and unemployment are still at record levels yet the stock market and corporations are making huge profits while continuing to downsize employees. Our young people are being crushed by student loan debt while the corporate owned media is singing Happy Days are Here Again.

For them, it most certainly is. For you, probably not so much.

Each book cost less than five dollars to download. Under ten for the paperback.

For less than the cost of a meal at a decent restaurant you can learn how to be financially independent and unconcerned when the next round of lay-offs begin.

But that can only happen if you take action now.
