What Makes Taylor Hicks Remarkable

Taylorhicks_2 Taylor Hicks is a new name on the music scene. Last night he won the American Idol competition and launched a major recording career as a result.

Why did Taylor win? He was remarkable.

Over thousands and thousands and thousands of other hopefuls, this one person believed in his talent, was unique in his presentation and remained true to himself, over all adversity.

Was that enough to win? Nope.

Taylor also:

1. Expressed joy from his heart all the time

2. Had a true and authentic passion for what he does

3. Believed in his talent, which made him comfortable in his skin.

And he did it week, after week, until he stood out completely from the crowd.

Taylor is unique in a commodity driven world because he is joyfully passionate about what he does.

How about you? Are you living with passion, joy, comfortable expressing your talent, or fitting in, doing the same thing as everyone else, looking forward to the next long weekend.

We can all learn a lot from Taylor Hicks…

Congratulations, Taylor!


The Power of Partnerships

Mark Joyner and his new book The Great Formula did the remarkable.

Here's a post from Mark's blog.

On May 19th the worldwide release of The Da Vinci Code film was promoted in virtually every media outlet imaginable. It was an unprecedented media blitz.  As a result, sales of The Da Vinci Code book naturally went through the roof.

On the same day my friends and I launched a blitz of our own for my new book, The Great Formula.

The difference?

We had a zero-dollar ad budget and used only ultra-low-risk grassroots marketing.

The result? 

# 1 on the Amazon List, beating the Da Vinci code book sales in just 12-hours

The 393 most visited site on the internet. That's the ENTIRE internet.

All with no budget, just a band of marketers helping Mark Joyner launch his book to the top.

Do Strategic Partnerships work? How can you use them for YOUR business? Why aren't you?


Mark Joyner Hits # 1

SUPERMAN!

Nope, Mark Joyner's new promotion of his latest book, The Great Formula.

In one GIANT swoop, Mark promoted his book to # 1 on Amazon. In less than 24-hours.

I gave away 90 Minute Time Manager, along with $1,000.00's in free bonuses for ordering.
