Overview

“The first strategy Janet developed for me turned a $572 expenditure into $31,000 in just six hours. Her second turned $1,280 into $105,000 in just six weeks.”-Jack Canfield, cofounder of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® book series

I first began reading this book out of curiosity. I mean the title...come on, who wouldn't be. Then I realized I had a genuine interest. I applied the strategies and ideas in the book to my own businesses and I couldn't believe what was happening. I actually started getting amazing increases in income! I actually had a very hugh increase in cash for play and to reinvest in my business. It wasn't like Star Trek 'Beam me up' or Jetsons instantaneous though, but it was pretty instant and a whole lot faster than what I could have achieved on my own. I applied the principles universally and attained beautiful results. For the relatively little amount of money you are paying, you're investing in, at least, a six figure income life. I know this...it worked for me.
