Overview

Imagine a system that allowed you to make money almost effortlessly, so that you could spend your time with friends and family, follow your dreams, or pursue other goals without worrying about where your next paycheck is coming from. Now imagine if all you needed to make that happen were a computer and an Internet connection. If you can imagine it, you can achieve it—with Your Portable Empire.

Your Portable Empire is a system for creating an online business you can run from anywhere—at home, at a beachside resort on the other side of the world, or anywhere else for that matter. It requires little day-to-day effort, and once it's up and running, your portable empire will create passive income for years to come.

Author Pat O'Bryan has created a number of cash-generating businesses that he can run from a laptop anywhere in the world. In Your Portable Empire, he describes exactly how he created his businesses and how you can duplicate his success. He shows you how it's done using real-world examples from his own experience, and personal stories and instruction from online gurus like Joe Vitale, Mark Joyner, Bill Hibbler, Craig Perrine, and Cindy Cashman.

Every single day, people spend money buying the information they need online. All you have to do is discover what information they'll pay for and then sell it to them. You'll learn to develop valuable informational products, build a list of prospects that drives customers to your site, and write effective marketing and selling copy that lets you communicate with prospects. Best of all, you don't have to be tech-savvy at all! If you can hunt and peck on a keyboard, you can build a business.

With the secrets you'll find inside, you won't have to work nine-to-five to get by. With Your Portable Empire, you can build a business that brings in consistent cash with almost no effort. Why spend your life in an office when you can live your dreams with your very own portable empire?

    Very Realistic

    I found the author and the book to be very real, not pie in the sky. He provided so much helpful information I can't recount it all here. He provided quick, simple ways to get started quickly. He explained how to create electronic products such as ebooks and websites very inexpensively. There is a great technique to help you find your niche. The entreprenuer and the average person that continues to run into brick walls will find inspiration and motivation to keep moving forward.

    There is an interesting twist on Joint Ventures as well as mentally preparing oneself for success. He also provides sources for writers of your ebooks.

    Plus he is passionate about having fun as you work your magic.
