At Last! How You Can Take Your Internet Business To the Next Level

Aug 17, 2007
One of my biggest mentors in internet business, netweork marketing and personal development held a top secret meeting for 40 of the world's best internet marketers in an un-assuming hotel room in San Diego.

We're talking about the gorillas like John Reese, Frank Kern, Yanik Silver, John Carlton, Joe Polish, Mike Filsaime, the 'Rich Jerk', Jeff Walker, and Rich Schefren just to name a few.

It felt kinda like a mafia movie wher all the families gather in a secluded safe-house to hear the god father speak his peace. It was definitely an honor to be in such company.

So why were we invited to this little gathering, and why did we drop everything on our schedule to make sure we were in attendance?

Well we need to travel back in time, so when you're ready, punch the accelerator on the Delorean to 88 MPH and set the year of destination to 2001.

Six years ago, a young guy living in an un-assuming apartment in California trying to find his path in life took his first step into the world of internet marketing.

His name was David DeAngelo. Like most of us, he began by writing a little e-book and putting up a simple lead capture page.

It did well, and before he knew it, he was making a full-time income from his little internet business. Now that's where most people's internet marketing careers would begin and end. Their level of desire and ambition peaked at a few $1,000 extra per month.

But not with David. Truth be told, he's an intellectual freak show.

But the best part is that his intelligence was not graced upon him at birth "Doogie Houser" style... It was gained word-by-word and page-by-page thanks to his insatiable appetite for reading (Hint Hint).

That willingness to acquire new knowledge, combined with an expanding vision for himself and his little company would create a chain reaction of events that would lead myself and 39 others into that hotel room 6 years later and the story would be told all over the internet.

Now hop back in your Delorean and head back to the future. Today, David DeAngelo Communications Inc. has grown from his tiny apartment bedroom into an internet marketing power-house that is revolutionizing the concept of the "virtual company."

Sales of his little ebook and education courses for men on "dating" exceed $20,000,000 per year. That's more than $70,000 per day!

His little capture page has helped them build an email list with millions of subscribers. The company's view on hiring talent and company structure are revolutionary when you consider they have 80 full-time employees, without an office.

Yes, it's a $20,000,00+ company that's completely virtual and a cutting-edge example studied by Fortune 500 companies around the world.

Quite a story isn't it? Well here's where it gets real interesting... "David DeAngelo" does not exist. It's a fictitious name created by the person we're really talking about here in order to allow him to build his empire in secret.

People have been trying to discover his true identity for years, usually without success. He's never taught internet marketing, he's never held a training event or seminar on his business, and despite the fact that he's one of the most successful internet marketers in the world, you've never heard his name before on any marketing websites.

As far as anyone was concerned, he was a ghost. I had been watching and studying his team for a year or two, but met him personally for the first time in that San Diego hotel room.

I'll have to admit that I awaited his 2-day presentation with baited-breath, as he was going to reveal how he turned his little bedroom internet business into the $20,000,000 giant
it is today.

I hope it's now painfully obvious as to why the 40 of us dropped everything we were doing to attend this secret meeting with just a few days notice.

You see, despite our internet marketing success, most of us in that room were "stuck." We began as employees years ago, conjuring our businesses into reality in apartment bedroom's late at night just like he had, but few of us were truly "business owners".

We had mastered some valuable skills and marketing online, but most of us had... Never hired anyone before. Never fired anyone before.

We didn't know how to build a long-term strategy for our company. We didn't understand how to take the power of branding and positioning to the next level.

We didn't know how to tap into the massive internet marketing channels used by corporate America. And we didn't know how to recruit talented individuals that would help take our businesses to new heights.

For the most part, we we're all running one-man-shows with the help of a customer service agent or secretary, and at a complete loss for "what comes next".

In the end, it simply comes down to the fact that you simply do not know, what you do not know. So in essence, we didn't know how to take it to the next level. He did. And that weekend was a major wake-up call for everyone.

Those two days completely revolutionized my business and the tangible results will become apparent to everyone within the next 30 days. Find yourself someone who is much better at what you do than you are. Get to know and learn from them, you might become as good, if not better than they are.
