It’s fun to learn knew things isn’t it? I think so.
I got my capacity for learning from my association with my best friend, Rich. He was a sponge of a human being, but he wasn’t just book smart.
He could take something in writing and transition it into action. The guy was amazing.
For example, he had a very keen sense of how things worked, particularly in mechanics. I watched him do several things that demonstrated this, but one thing that stood out was the following story.
He and I served in the Army from 1984-1986, but each of us in different places. He did his tour of duty in Germany, and he loved it. He also loved motorcycles, and while was there he purchased a German-made Suzuki Gamma R500(?) and told me how he felt so free riding it on the Autobahn…passing other vehicles at a speed of 150 mph!
Anyway, he desperately wanted to bring it home, but he had a couple problems. One, the bike was designed for German specs, and was much faster than bikes made back then, especially U.S. bikes. In fact, the bike could not be driven legally on the street, but it could be registered as a racing bike.
The second problem he had was that there was a mountain of red tape – and expense – involved in sending the bike back to the U.S. So what did he do?
He completely disassembled the bike – nuts, bolts, the whole-nine – boxed it all up and shipped it to his parents’ home in the States. When he finished his tour of duty and came home, he reassembled the entire bike…with no extra parts left over. And believe me, the bike not only started, it ran like new.
Rich knew a lot about taking things apart and putting them back together, especially bikes and cars.
What enabled him to do this? He was an EXPERT.
For many years, he had a number of “projects” like putting high-performance engine parts on a Fiat engine, or anything the average person wouldn’t touch.
He had knowledge and practice doing this. That’s what I’m getting at here.
Becoming an expert is one of the key areas you need to become successful in online marketing.
So what if you’re not an expert? What if your knowledge and experience are limited?
Then I’d suggest that you get a copy of the following book, “Unlock the Expert in You” by a friend and colleague of mine, Dennis Becker.
It is said that it takes about 10,000 hours of training/study to become an expert at something. However, Dennis offers a step-by-step, no fluff way to become an expert that could take a lot less time than that.
What would it be worth for you to become an expert on the topic of your choice in a relatively short time?
This easy-to-read, no-nonsense book will guide you in reaching that goal, and without a gi-normous investment.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of “Unlock the Expert In You” today. You’ll see that this material is not the usual rehashed stuff you might find in a lot of publications. Best of all, it could change your life.
So what are you waiting for, “expert-in-training”?
See ya next time!
P.S. I only scratched the surface as to what my friend Rich could do. Unfortunately, he passed away suddenly in 2015. I think about him every day, and he was more than an expert at the things he did. He was my best friend. I hope to carry on his legacy in any way I can.
