Dear Son, From Prison

Gary Halbert is my frikken hero.

If you’re not familiar with the dude, he’s one of the greatest copywriters who ever lived.

I would not be where I am now if I had not stumbled across his masterpiece, The Boron Letters

As a quick background, these were letters he sent to his teenage son while locked up in a federal prison.

This reminds me of Jay-z’s line “lock my body, can’t trap my mind.” The powers of the human mind are truly incredible.

So Gary took this terrible experience and turned it into one the most life-changing things I’ve ever read.

To give you an idea of how powerful the ideas in the Boron Letters are, consider that Gary was originally going to turn them into a book called:

“How To Be Your Own Messiah”

Yup. And I’m telling you, he’s not far off. You’ll understand when you read the letters.

You see, copywriting is a bit like alchemy: turning words into gold

If turning a pen and paper into your personal ATM sounds intriguing, then I HIGHLY encourage you to read the Boron Letters.

They may change your life as they did mine.

And it’s not just the copywriting advice. So much of its appeal comes from the raw emotion of a father’s correspondence to his son. (There’s a lesson there as well)

Enough of my blabbering. Get your hands on it at the link below:

Scroll about halfway down the page and you’ll see each Boron Chapter, in reverse order.

If you wanna get the full experience, like I did, print off each chapter and read the physical copy. Trust me. You’re welcome.

Your Grade School Teacher Was Right

Remember yesterday I mentioned how productive I was at Starbucks? You do? Good.

(There’s a lesson there but I digress)

The first thing I mentioned was reading through Shane Hunter’s book again. I hope you picked yourself up a copy.

The other thing I was doing, which would have seemed weird to most people?

I was copying chapter 7 of the Boron Letters by hand, in cursive.

I’ll save my explanation of the Boron Letters for another day. What you need to hear, dear reader, is the importance of copying your favorite stuff by hand, in cursive.

You see, if you’re trying to get better at writing (and I hope you are if you’re on my list) you need to ‘inhabit’ the style of your favorite writers.

Cursive, for whatever reason, enhances the embedding process to a much greater extent. You want better results, right?

Well then, do the hard work (yes it’s a pain) of writing out the highest-leveraged stuff you’ve ever read, in cursive.

Here’s a great article that explains the science behind cursive handwriting in depth, and will help you practice.

Explanation How to Write in Cursive

If you know how, and don’t need the science, take my word for it and get to hard-wiring value into that noggin of yours.

Your grade school teacher will be tickled pink.

It Takes What It Takes

Confession time:

I started a blog over a year ago and only managed to publish two blog posts. Ouch.

It was embarrassing. Ever started something but din’t follow through? I bet that shyt secretly ate away at you like it did me.

InMotion (my old blog host) didn’t care If I was actually working on my blog. Only I did. There was no one holding me accountable.

Then I heard about GlobalNPN from my mentor, Shane Hunter (The Abrasive Entrepeneur.)

He said it was the best, and his recommendations carry a lot of weight with me considering he’s basically a legend.

So I hopped on and signed up. I won’t bore you with the features, (but they’re solid) I’ll get right to the results:

I’ve taken more action hosting through GlobalNPN than I ever did with InMotion. I set up a squeeze page, imported it to my hosted site, and even started daily emailing.

Why the difference? Simple:

Accountability. Geoff (Captain of the ship) set up GlobalNPN with a community feature because he knows how humans are:

We need accountability and are more likely to what we’re supposed to with social pressure.

So if you’re looking for a community with accountability, rather than a just an internet marketing tool, please join us by clicking yon link:

http://globalnpn.com/enter/sb-90-h.php?id=183986&tag=

I’m realizing I’m underselling the actual tools GlobalNPN has, so we’ll have to save them for another email.

For now, just know the social aspect is probably the most important one (for the average person).

I’m So Scared, Baby..

Fear is a funny thing. I bet you have some big fear right now holding you back from achieving your dreams.

You have to be really honest with yourself to recognize and root out fears.

Of course, it’s easy to spot other’s fears a mile away. Take something I saw recently on Facebook, for example:

My mentor, Shane Hunter, called out one of his students publicly for not following through on a commitment. He had given his word that he’d post every day on Facebook, and missed a day. We’ll call this student “Coyote.”

Not a big deal, eh? Keeping commitments to yourself and others? Meh. The excuses we tell ourselves are killers, my friend.

Why do I bring this story up? Two reasons:

1. Consistency and keeping your commitments are EVERYTHING in business & life
2. Shane’s student was being held back by the fear of ‘what if’

My solution for Coyote? Well, we’re both students of Shane’s Masterclass, so I pointed out the newsletter he needed to reread to POWER THROUGH that fear.

That specific MasterClass issue was a life-changer for me, and it could be for you as well. It’s title? “The Fear Of ‘What if??’!!”

That issue was solid gold for me, and the other 21 are just as mind-blowing. (And that’s just the newsletters, lol)

Speaking of the MasterClass…

Shane’s running an unbeatable special on it right now. If you buy now he’ll throw in:

-A top to bottom, step-by-step group training on building a following and a list, using ads and social media posts
-4 full one hour individual coaching sessions with him (he used to offer 2 at most)

Dynamite stuff.

Like I said earlier, Shane is my mentor and I can personally vouch for him being the real deal. Investing with him has paid off in spades for me, personally.

You gotta do the work (like anything in this world) but his tools and teaching are unbeatable. Click the link below to get on this offer while the gettin’s good:

(Note, Shane’s special offer has expired, but the MasterClass is still worth it)

My fellow MasterClass buddy has the tools to overcome “the fear of ‘what if'” IF he’ll use them. You’ll have that same opportunity if you invest with Shane, at the link above.

It’s time to conquer your fear.

Let Me Stand Next to Your FIRE

Have you heard about this ‘trendy’ concept called FIRE? It’s short for Financial Independence Retire Early, and I’m slightly obsessed with it.

“Hunter, I’m too lazy to research what FIRE is all about, can you give me the Cliff’s Notes?”

I thought you’d never ask, friend.

The concept came from a great little book called Your Money Or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin.

If you want the pure, uncut version- read IT instead of that trending “Millienial Retires at 30” article.

If you have ears to hear, then harken unto me, oh pursuer of truth:

You are probably a consumer slave right now, and in need of some major reprogramming.

It’s not your fault, our society breeds em.

I’ll wake you up like Morpheus. First part? Deprogramming all that conditioning you’ve had. Jump on my email list to learn what you SHOULD be investing in:

Are You Living a Life of Quiet Desperation?

When is a door not a door? When it’s a jar!

Corny, I know. Speaking of doors…

Picture a door that leads to your dream life. Everything you want is behind that door. What do you do?

You reach out your hand, grasp the tarnished brass knob, twist it and with a CRREEEEAAAK…

It opens to reveal this:

A mountain in the distance. Yup, I’ll shoot straight with you- there’s no easy way to get to your dream life, despite what everyone is trying to sell you.

It requires hard work, sacrifice and dedication. The good news? I found several blueprints that will help you up the mountain.

As my mentor says, “Success leaves clues.” I can’t do the work for you but I can hold you accountable as we work on the very core of the battle:

Mindset.

The rewards are worth the effort, I promise. Don’t settle like most do into that life of quiet desperation.
