Jules Verne's science fiction novel The Master of the World narrates the story of unexpected end to a brilliant travel machine which can move at phenomenal.
While it boasted a larger cast and more location work than was then the norm for AIP - it was the studio's biggest budget picture to date  - it still utilized stock footage, including the opening miniature shot of Elizabethan London from Laurence Olivier's Henry V as a stand-in for Victorian London, with the airship Albatross superimposed over the top. Additional scenes of the Albatross destroying both sides in a naval engagement are created in the same manner, with stock footage borrowed from the battle of Trafalgar scenes at the end of the film That Hamilton Woman The script combined elements of both of Jules Verne's novels, Robur the Conqueror and its sequel, Master of the World. The special effects crew included Wah Chang and Gene Warren. It was originally announced that Price's co-star would be Mark Damon , his co-star from House of Usher.
See if you can find one. Google seminars on toll booths seminars on being a go-between seminars on joint venture brokers seminars on becoming a passive income master seminars on becoming a power broker seminars on becoming a middleman Youre not going to find very many, if any. Because, hardly anybody does it, and the ones that DO dont want you to learn their secrets. And nobody else can teach it.
They really dont teach it. They just go out and do it through their own contacts.
All the big playersthey know how to do it. But theyre frequently some type of a lawyer or high-powered marketplace influence. They put deals together. But the laymen, people like you dont know or learn anything about this normally until now, that is. For example, there was, in Canada, a donut company called Tim Hortons, and theres another company you probably know called Wendys.
Well, all of a sudden you started seeing in all the highway rest stops in Canada that there are now Wendys combined with Tim Hortons two totally different food service concepts. But they were now combined in the same facility. And guess what? Somebody out there put those two together. Same for putting branch offices for banks, or Starbucks in grocery stores. C Copyright The Abraham Group www.
Tim Hortons doesnt serve any mainstay food. And on their own separately, they both take up too much retail space. Why doesnt someone put them both together, where theyve got the burgers and dessert? And so they did. Ill bet tens of millions of dollars of toll booth money went to the people who had the vision to see the deal, set it up, structure it, and place themselves squarely in the middle of the cash flowing from it.
And in case you think deals like that are rare or terribly hard to do, think again! Perhaps at that high level they require more skill, persuasion and influence capability. But joint ventured, co-branded, shared access deals can be done all day long, at any level or size transaction you want to go for IF you know the key things to do.
This can happen in a heartbeat ka-ching, ka-ching, ka-ching because, you know what? The people who are involved with Wendys didnt originally know the other people from Tim Hortons. Nor was it their business. Most business owners are too preoccupied with their day-to-day business demands to even think about who could be the best joint venture partner with them, or what other companys products might sell well to their customers and downloaders.
Theyve all got their own primary business worries, their own time constraints. Theyve all got their own full day of critical things to do. But somebody like me, or even you, comes along, and we get to know somebody else in another business, or with other contacts who can get involved with their company. Then we say to that first company, This could increase your profit by double maybe triple for doing nothing else on your part. Interested in doing that? Of course they are, so they almost always say, Yes.
Recurring income for not working. I hope you understand what Im saying. Now, its not just putting products, services, companies or people together. Its also putting assets together, tangible and intangible, as Ill explain in a moment. There might be an asset thats out there that you know of, say a bunch of unsold advertising time on a group of radio stations that a target company that you want to do a deal with can use.
But they dont know that fact. So you go to the radio station to get them to put up the advertising for no up-front payment.
Believe me, its much easier than you think. Instead, you offer the station a big share of the product sales their advertising generates for companies you use it for.
Then, after youve got the deal locked up with the radio stations, you go to companies and negotiate a bigger share of the profits than you have to pay out to the radio stations.
So you make a fat profit markup in the middle on each transaction, just by putting yourself in the middle, in that toll booth position we talked about earlier. This is a most unusual skill to possess, to say the least. And because its so rare, guess what? When supply is low, what happens? Demand is high.
Actually, in this case, demand is nearly infinite, endless, insatiable once you learn how its properly done. So demand is super high. When demand is super high, what happens to money?
It flows fast, deep and wide to those with the unique knowledge and skills. So the incomes from this type of methodology can be massive and forever.
And not just for yourself, but they can transfer and continue in perpetuity to your children, and their children, and their children, forever.
How many? But what if you had dozens of deals, or two dozen, or , like Ive set up? Like I said, hardly anybody else out there knows how to do this, and hardly anybody ever talks about it, and theres no existing program I know of on it. But I do this day in and day out as part of my work for all the clients and partners I help. And at the risk of sounding immodest, I do it really well.
Well, three months ago famed trainer Harv Eker asked me if Id be willing to come to a unique new concept-seminar he was holding called, Never Work Again and help him out as a friend.
He also asked me that if there was any way Id be willing, would I also consider creating some type of comprehensive long-term training program for people who were really serious about mastering this ability to generate passive income almost at will.
If people wanted to take it to the next level and learn how to do this proficiently, and make themselves hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars doing it, would I show them how its done? Well, it doesnt exist now anywhere, as I said, and we both knew that. So after serious thought on my part, before I accepted Harvs challenge, my answer was, Conditionally affirmative. But I told Harv I had to first present such a powerful short course primer introduction that people in the audience gained a clear, accurate and potent picture of just how lucrative and vast this virgin opportunity really could be for them.
That said, my goal then was to present an accurate picture of what someone could truly achieve using my skill set, and then see if the seminar attendees in the 10 C Copyright The Abraham Group www.
Now, one of the things about being taught by brilliant people as Ive been fortune to have done they tend to accelerate and vastly expand and enhance your understanding and knowledge on a given subject.
In that way, I probably understand this prosperous skill set at a level and dimension so deep, youd get overwhelmed if I went full boat into it right now. So Im going to try very carefully to focus you just on the most important key elements the high points of knowledge, if you will so youll best understand them today.
Ill try and keep solidly focused and on track continuously for the rest of this presentation. Now, Ive worked with all kinds of companies, all sizes, types of businesses the world over. But as most people know, Ive not done a lot of work on an individual basis trying to help men and women like you create financial independence for business opportunity. So this is a first of sorts for me. So bear with me, please and forgive me if I go back and forth talking about my regular business dealings.
Lets start with an obvious concept. Within every challenge, problem or goal lies monster opportunities. So in every example Ill share or concept I discuss today, youll see Im helping that company solve the problem, a challenge, or a goal they never realized they even had.
Well be talking about mostly real-world examples today, not things that are theoretical not things that people read about in some abstract textbook. Were talking transactions that Ive actually successfully done, been part of, or helped other people do business situations Im actually personally familiar with, worked on brilliant minds that Ive actually collaborated withYoull learn concepts, opportunities and strategies that you can actually walk out of the room youre in today after listening, and start doing it successfully and perpetually for yourself at the end of my presentation if youre focused and attentive.
The background of this presentation is very interesting and relevant too, so let me quickly share it. Ive never thought about that. I said, Darn! I really HAVE mastered more viable ways to get control of business success and assets, and get them continually monetized than Id ever imagined! So I went into this presentation very, very excited very frankly, not just for you, the listener, or the audience I did at Harvs event; but my own business for our own accounts as well.
But wed never really looked at it as a major revenue source. We always looked at it in the past as an opportunistic sort of a windfall, episodic thing we just did when certain key factors converged. We tried to address it in a way that you can do it for your own industry. You can do it for your employer. You can do it anywhere in the city or state or country youre in. You can do it anywhere of different industries. You can do it anywhere in the country or world. You can do it full time, part time, all of the above.
And as we worked through it, I got very excited.
Because I reconstructed all kinds of wonderful, lucrative, almost obscenely profitable different past deals, and categories, and areas Ive done, where I had engineered incredible profit windfalls for myself and my partners very easily, and they were very replicable. They were situations YOU could duplicate, too, with a little guidance and direction. My job today, then, is to be your advocate. My job is to make sure you get out of me everything I can give; so that this session hopefully becomes the most valuable and stimulating two-hour epiphany: of your whole financial lifetime.
I want to make sure I do a lot for you. I think thats a good introduction, but before I talk a little bit more about my deal- making background and plenty of examples, Ill share a little of my philosophy.
It might be a very good springboard for you to get oriented. Its relevant to your self-interest entirely.
Specifically, I think the one thing that defines me more than anything is my concept of upside leverage. And throughout my entire career Ive been able to do things once and get paid for them forever or certainly, for long periods of time.
This is worthwhile, and Im saying it not to extol my greatness, but rather only to show you how much expansive opportunity there is out there everywhere in the business world for yourself.
I got started at age I had no formal education. I got married and had two kids at I had the needs of somebody whos 40, financially. At 20, nobody cared. I had no skill sets. I started out on the expense side of the business, making nothing, and starving. I wanted to make a lot of money, and realized that one way the only way, probably to make money was to shift the strategy and become an income generator instead of an expense for the business.
Nobody, though, would give me any fixed income, no salary. But lots of crazy entrepreneurs were willing to give me opportunities I could work on on a purely performance basis where I only earned if I performed.
They might be selling something. They might be deal making. They might be middlemen, structuring deals whatever. I did all kinds of different things always being paid strictly for performance. So I went through a ton of different industries and relationships all at the same time because I was trying to maximize my income-generating capabilities so I could support my family. Well, three things happened: When you only eat if you earn, you realize very quickly what works, and what doesnt and what works better than everything else so you get the most out of the time and effort you invest.
I went through tons of different industries and realized that people running one industry dont have a clue what people in another or another or another do. And thats a great opportunity for YOU today. Ive helped plus industries not businesses industries. Ive concentrated most of my life on maximizing the ways to get businesses more downloaders to get those downloaders spending a lot more money to get those downloaders coming back more often to get the downloaders to be more valuable by finding more ways to monetize them, and when the business thinks they have nothing else to sell to them And I had to figure out all kinds of alternatives and ancillary windfall super safe ways to increase and maximize the profit potential of either a business, a product, a brand or a client.
And of course, Ive had some very impressive successes. Now, that was a low margin business, and its a little misleading. Ive counseled more than prominent experts people like Harv Eker, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracey, Nightingale Conant, Steven Coveys organization, Demings organization In the course of doing all that, I learned some extraordinary business building methods, profit-boosting techniques, wealth-generating philosophies that most people dont have any idea even exist.
Ive been able to use them in very powerful, hybrid ways to produce massive increases for business owners all over the world. Now, let me tell you about some specific examples of how Ive done that, where Ive done that, and how people listening in this audience can do it, too.
But also, before we do that, I want to talk about a concept that Ive used and taught businesses to use for the last 25 years, and thats my Power Parthenon Strategy. Its the way you can quickly develop multiple streams of passive income for yourself, using the same philosophy Ive taught businesses on how to build their rapid marketing successes. Let me explain What Im trying to do now is demonstrate how Ive taken all the expertise and a lifetime body of work and understanding that Ive amassed in growing businesses and multiplying profits and have fully translated it over to how you listening, no matter where you are, can use it either for your businessyour employeryour familyyourselfto generate substantial cash flow and financial security all passively in a very short while.
So, when I go in and work with a business, the first thing I realize is that most businesses of any kind, anywhere in the country or world, tend to build their entire success on just one revenue, or marketing, or selling activity. Usually its either direct sales, or advertising, or catalog, or online.
It just happens to be the one approach that their industry tends to lean towards.
When I get involved, I build businesses from six to ten DIFFERENT additional pillars, or Parthenons of revenue, of marketing, of prospect generation, of income that normally triples, quadruples, sometimes ten times-multiplies their profit potential.
And the key to what we want to talk about here today is how YOU can do the very same for businesses all over the place without having to manage a thing yourself.
Remember, do something once get paid for it forever! Weve got a concept called Capitalizing on Capitalism, and it basically, in a nutshell, means that any business of any kind, anywhere in the world has all kinds of hidden assets overlooked opportunities underperforming activities undervalued assets underutilized brand equity or distribution channels that you can get direct control of, access to. Then you can put into play a broad array of constantly recurring income-generating activities for that business that you get a piece of over and over again.
Its the perfect time to bring it up. Ive got the concept we talked about it briefly of putting yourself in the toll booth position. Its the key to everything we want to talk about for the rest of this 17 C Copyright The Abraham Group www.
The key to the toll booth position is your getting control of assets, access or flow. Think of yourself literally as a toll booth operator. Ka-ching, Ka-ching people have to go through and pay.
Theyve got to go back and pay. There are an infinite number of situations in business where you can get control of recurring transactions of ongoing sources of revenue of specific types or categories of business of certain forms of revenue activities in a business and every time that activity, that transaction, that category of business gets generated Ka-ching, Ka-ching. Money continuously can flow to you. You earn money without being there.
You might have to effort a little bit one time, but you get paid for it, if not forever, for a sustaining period of time. And thats the basis that forms this concept of Masters of Passive Income. One of the things that also defines me, I think, is my concept of The Tom Sawyer School of Business, where Ive been able to get control of an opportunity, or an asset, or a resource, or a revenue stream for a market AND THEN Ive gotten other people to do all the work for me, and yet Ive gotten generously paid for doing it.
Would you like to know how to do that, too? If youre from another country, Mark Twain is one of the classic authors from the 18th Century, and he wrote a lot about life on the Mississippi. He had a lot of very powerful characters, and one of them was Tom Sawyer. Tom Sawyer was a very loveable, likeable sort of a waif-y guy who went around sort of defying traditional rules, living life his own way, and walking to the beat of his own drummer being a very unique, very appealing, very happy, very desirable sort of a character.
Instead of painting the fence himself, Tom got all the kids in the neighborhood excited about what an incredible, fun experience it would be for them to paint the fence instead of him.
So he gave them all brushes and paint, and he sat in the corner in the sun with his straw hat and corn cob pipe, enjoying the rays, thinking about what he was going to do next while the kids did all the work, but Tom earned all the money.
And that became a metaphor for me for what you should be doing, too. You should get control of the business assets. You should get control of the business opportunity. You should get control of the access to the downloaders, or market, or an industry, which is control of the flow or availability to the market.
You should always get other people to do all or most of the heavy lifting. But you should keep all or most of the profit. Last year we actually identified different ways or applications where you can leverage off other peoples resources, get control of their opportunities, without doing much or anything yourself.
Well look at a bunch of them in a minute. For example, all my life Ive focused on upside leverage. And again, Im going to go back and forth for this conversation between my day job which is growing businesses, multiplying profits and my new avocation which is mentoring you and this group, and groups like you, in the coming Masters of Passive Income because, theres a bridge connection here that you will be able to capitalize on.
The key to what Ive figured out to do with business is maximize leverage and multiply the performance, or the yield, or the profitability of the economic payoff of what theyre doing now how theyre doing it now or who theyre doing it with and for. Thats the crux of what this presentation is also focused on for you. One of the things we want to teach you now, and the key to all this, is how to look at any business, anywhere, and see a passive income opportunity you can harvest and get long-term control of an opportunity no one else in the business itself sees, or does.
We want to put you in the position that its only a matter now of whether the transaction, the deal, the opportunity is worth your time. Because there are so many deals out there. Now, we want to be able to reduce or eliminate the biggest obstacle that keeps most people in your circumstance from ever really growing outside your current situation, and that is either fear or lack of skill.
Because it empowers you to gain control of all the skill sets, all the assets, all the talent, all the resources youll ever need to master passive income generation. For example, one of the things well talk about today is how you can tie up control of a business, and were going to fill in the blanks by showing you some of the wonderful possibilities.
Theres different ways to do it. Get control of their inactive downloaders get control of their unsold prospects get control of their successful ads, and use them somewhere else get control of their active downloaders for other products and services get control of their products and services for other markets get control of their brand get control of their sales training get control of their distribution C Copyright The Abraham Group www.
I know it is. But the process may seem intimidating and a little scary to some of you. Nod your head to yourself if that is right. How many people at this seminar presentation dont like the thought of contacting somebody who owns a business and trying to do deals, or sell them a concept, or negotiate a right, or set up a joint venture? Shake your head if you dont like that.
Now, I wonder how many listening on the call love making deals love calling on people love selling love trying to make ambitious, important things happen. Nod your head to yourself. Well, I suspect some people nodded their head twice because they were either conflicted, or they have split personalities!
But Im trying to make a point here. Heres the key: In the world today, you can find thousands, if not tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of men or women who can sell who CAN negotiate who CAN manage but who need the vision and direction to know how to do it where to do it what to do with it.
And you could easily enlist them to do all your bidding for you, like Tom Sawyer got people whitewashing the fence. But youll control and own the deal and all the access to the cash flow that comes with it.
Theyll merely receive a modest piece, a modest little share of the profits. You pay everyone on performance only. So it never costs you a thing unless you make a bundle from it. For example and were getting a little divergent here, but Ill give you a bunch of specific examples in a minute to make the point more tangible. Lets say you wanted to get control of the downloaders who are no longer active in a given business. All youve got to do is get control of them, and then connect them to all those other related products, and the spigot of passive income will flow wildly into your bank account.
Put yourself in the middle. In that toll booth position. But theres a problem. Youre intimidated about contacting them. Youre intimidated about structuring or doing the deal. Youre intimidated about working through the paperwork. Youre intimidated about establishing the value to the targets business involved with you making the money for putting it all together.
But you DO see and understand that what weve got to offer can be done by the right skilled person. Well, guess what? There are so many people out there who love to sell, but dont know how to use that skill set. There, deep amid the Blueridge Mountains rises the crest called the Great Eyrie. Its huge rounded form is distinctly seen from the little town of Morganton on the Catawba River, and still more clearly as one approaches the mountains by way of the village of Pleasant Garden.
Why the name of Great Eyrie was originally given this mountain by the people of the surrounding region, I am not quite Sure It rises rocky and grim and inaccessible, and under certain atmospheric conditions has a peculiarly blue and distant effect. But the idea one would naturally get from the name is of a refuge for birds of prey, eagles condors, vultures; the home of vast numbers of the feathered tribes, wheeling and screaming above peaks beyond the reach of man.
Now, the Great Eyrie did not seem particularly attractive to birds; on the contrary, the people of the neighborhood began to remark that on some days when birds approached its summit they mounted still further, circled high above the crest, and then flew swiftly away, troubling the air with harsh cries. Why then the name Great Eyrie? Perhaps the mount might better have been called a crater, for in the center of those steep and rounded walls there might well be a huge deep basin.
Perhaps there might even lie within their circuit a mountain lake, such as exists in other parts of the Appalachian mountain system, a lagoon fed by the rain and the winter snows. In brief was not this the site of an ancient volcano, one which had slept through ages, but whose inner fires might yet reawake?
Might not the Great Eyrie reproduce in its neighborhood the violence of Mount Krakatoa or the terrible disaster of Mont Pelee? If there were indeed a central lake, was there not danger that its waters, penetrating the strata beneath, would be turned to steam by the volcanic fires and tear their way forth in a tremendous explosion, deluging the fair plains of Carolina with an eruption such as that of in Martinique?
Indeed, with regard to this last possibility there had been certain symptoms recently observed which might well be due to volcanic action. Smoke had floated above the mountain and once the country folk passing near had heard subterranean noises, unexplainable rumblings.
A glow in the sky had crowned the height at night. When the wind blew the smoky cloud eastward toward Pleasant Garden, a few cinders and ashes drifted down from it. And finally one stormy night pale flames, reflected from the clouds above the summit, cast upon the district below a sinister, warning light.
In presence of these strange phenomena, it is not astonishing that the people of the surrounding district became seriously disquieted. And to the disquiet was joined an imperious need of knowing the true condition of the mountain. Their articles aroused curiosity and fear—curiosity among those who being in no danger themselves were interested in the disturbance merely as a strange phenomenon of nature, fear in those who were likely to be the victims if a catastrophe actually occurred.
Those more immediately threatened were the citizens of Morganton, and even more the good folk of Pleasant Garden and the hamlets and farms yet closer to the mountain.
