Dan Kennedy: The Millionaire Maker
When we hear the word “king”, a ruler usually comes to mind. A powerful individual who has followers working for him and his kingdom is one of the most common images that any of us see.
But I have a different one for you. Yes, this king is powerful and indeed has followers. But ironically, he never controlled them. He instead sets them free to become masters of their own kingdoms.
Itching to know the details?
He’s no other than Dan Kennedy – the famous multimillionaire marketing expert! On top of writing 13 successful business books, he is also a copywriter, scriptwriter, infomercial consultant and speaker. He had the amazing opportunity to repeatedly share the stage with 4 US Presidents and other high profile individuals including Donald Trump and General Colin Powell.
After being in the business for over 30 years, there is no doubt that Dan Kennedy had has conquered the field. Solopreneurs, small business owners and even large scale businessmen from different parts of the world seek his advice. Simply because he can help them!
He turns ideas into multi-million fortunes by giving business owners a variety of options on how to go about their businesses. Entrepreneur, a well known business magazine, featured Dan Kennedy saying that he offers at least 101 moneymaking ideas for any business owner.
Truly this King knows how to keep his millions coming. Not just for him but for those who follow his advice as well.
Even after being famous for over 3 decades, it’s incredible how Dan Kennedy managed to keep his personal life away from the public’s eyes. Not a single biography shed light on his childhood or his life even before he became the marketing guru we all look up to today. Everything about him before he took on the spotlight is certainly a mystery to us all.
Dan shuttles between Ohio and Northern Virginia with his wife and their million dollar dog. Among the little things we could know about him is that he is passionate about cars. He also loves driving more than anything. Dan would be seen racing in Northfield Park near Cleveland, Ohio.
More than a king, Dan Kennedy is truly a leader that each of us can follow.
Is your marketing getting the job done?
I know this might not be the best example of a marketing fail but it is one that makes me giggle.
Uh, may I lovingly recommend something a little bigger? Brighter colored? Different pricing system altogether?
My takeaway? What messages am I sending in the marketplace that are just making more noise and aren’t doing squat to add any value?
Freelancing: Work For Free or Freedom From Work?
It is not unusual for people to think of freelancers as individuals who work for free or pretty close to it. But that’s not necessarily the case for self-employed professionals. Working part-time or full-time on your own is not meant for everyone – Do have what it takes to be your own boss?
Freelancing is for individuals who want to grab their independence. Most commonly these professionals work along creative or computer related fields such as writing, graphic design, photography, website development and advertising.
Free agents, or freelancers, can work for multiple employers at a given time since they are usually not tied down in an exclusive contract. Projects and contracts can be as short as a couple of hours or for extended periods of time like six months or over a year. Depending on the work set-up agreed upon by both parties, freelancers often work at home during their most convenient time.
You might need some more experience before diving into the vast sea of freelancing. Aspiring freelance professionasl usually start out by only accepting a handful or projects while keeping their day job. Individuals who want to test the waters, build a portfolio or save up to start a business often opt for this route. Skilled and seasoned freelancers have an upper hand in their pricing because of their proven credible status.
