The Millionaire Messenger
When Brendon Burchard was 19 years old he was in a life-changing car crash. After speeding around a hairpin turn in the Dominican Republic he and his friend were catapulted into the air, and, as the car flipped, Brendon pondered three essential questions: Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?When the car landed and to his amazement he was still alive, Brendon realized that he didn't yet have satisfying answers to those questions, but he did have an idea as to how to get them. He began the process of crafting his life story into one that would make a difference in the world, inspire others
and show them how they too could share their passions with a wide audience. After some initial struggles, Brendon launched what has become a million dollar consulting, book writing, and speaking business, all based on his mission to spread his message to the world.
In The Millionaire Messenger, Brendon offers a 10-step plan that will help readers develop their message, package their advice in an attractive way, gain a following, and, perhaps most importantly, make money in this effort. By following his program, ordinary people can learn to package their struggles, successes, research, or life's story into advice for others and become experts on any given topic. In the industry of people who share their advice and knowledge with the world and get paid for it, Burchard is the 'guru's guru.'
Burchard, founder of the Experts Academy, truly believes that everyone has the potential to be a self-help guru. Having experienced a turning point after a near-fatal car accident, Burchard emerged from his trauma with a new appreciation for life and a feeling that he had a calling, a meta-vocation of sorts aimed at people with an interest in the Self-Help marketplace. Burchard s particular calling was to spread his feeling of purpose and the attainment of unlimited success through hard work. His book namely motivates readers to find a true sense of focus and mastery over whatever topic is important to them. Burchard offer excellent networking advice while stressing the credo give and you shall receive ...If you want them to promote your website, promote theirs. Want an endorsement? Give one first. Exercises ( expert signposts ) will nearly guarantee success for those who want it. People can and do get paid for their opinions all the time, and anyone will be able to tap into his or her gifts and knowledge under Burchard s tutelage. Directed at a niche group of already-inspired readers, this book is more likely to fly off of convention tables than bookstore shelves; one has to hear Burchard discuss his method, or read actively (and commit to the exercises!) in order to appreciate his approach.
