The Almost “Secret Ingredient” to a Highly Profitable Business

Recently, I watched probably one of my favorite movies of all time:

Kung Fu Panda.

Now, before you write this off as a stupid animated movie, there’s a GREAT business lesson hidden inside if you’re an expert, consultant, or coach.

Here’s the TL;DR version of the movie:

1) A big fat panda, Po, is “accidentally” picked to become the chosen one

2) His master, Shifu, doesn’t want to train him because Shifu believes Po was chosen by accident

3) The great master Oogway, however, tells Shifu that “there are no accidents”

4) Shifu finally teaches Po the art of kung fu. Eventually, Po is entrusted with the legendary “Dragon Scroll” which holds the ancient secrets to save the kingdom

5) Po opens the Dragon Scroll only to find… nothing… and realizes: “There is no secret ingredient.”

The essence is simple:

Po always had everything he needed to become “the chosen one.”

He didn’t need anything fancy.

What he actually needed was the right mentor and the right training program.

Here’s my point:

Just like Po realized that there is no secret to becoming the “chosen one.”

No matter what the Fakebook guru’s preach, there is *NO* secret “hack,” “funnel,” or “tactic” that will turn your business into a profitable one.

Of course, you *can* find new tactics, hacks, and whatever. But, if your foundation isn’t solid (i.e., if your strategy is weak). It won’t matter which new hack you try to install into your business.

Whether that’s Facebook hacks… webinars… Instagram… or, insert whatever new tactic the latest Fakebook guru’s try to shove down your throat. Eventually, it’s only a matter of time before your business crumbles beneath its own weight.

The closest thing to a “hack” that can take you from frazzled entrepreneur to profitable business owner is learning how to write emails that sell.

The only difference is that email marketing isn’t a hack… it’s a powerful strategy.

In my opinion (which, of course, makes it a fact).

This was true when I worked my corporate job and sold for millions of dollars by email and online marketing.

And it’s been true in my own business.

To round this off.

Let me close with my favorite quote from the late, great, and esteemed, Mr. Eugene M. Schwartz.

This quote is as relevant today as it was when Eugene Schwartz unleashed these true words upon the world of advertising:

“The task of a copywriter is not to create this mass desire – but to channel and direct it.” – Gene Schwartz

Take that to heart the next time you sit down to write your latest email designed to sell.

You’ll learn how to use the old-school principle of “Infotainment” to write emails that people LOVE to read. Including: How to write stories so compelling they immediately draw customers in – even if you’re not a professional writer… and much more.

Tips For Choosing Timber Bifold Doors

These days, the primary focus of many people constructing or renovating their homes is space saving solutions. One of the best ways that maximum space can be achieved in your home is through the addition of bifold doors, which fold in on top of each other instead of swinging out into the room. Timber is an increasingly popular material for these doors; you should use the following tips when choosing timber bifolds for optimal results.

If you have never purchased or investigated bifold doors before, you may be surprised to learn that there are actually a number of materials that they can be constructed out of. Whilst aluminium and PVC doors have traditionally been quite popular thanks to the strength and maintenance benefits that they provide homeowners with, there can be no denying that timber has constantly been a viable player in the realm of bifolds.

Tip #1: There are a wide variety of timbers available for the construction of bifolds; it is up to you to choose the most appropriate one for your home. Not only should you be looking for a timber that blends in with the existing décor of the property, you should be looking for the best colour and grain.

Tip #2: You must carefully consider the size and the number of panels that your bifold doors comprise. If you are in the process of building your home, you should first find out the size of your doors and then create the opening accordingly; if you’re renovating, you will need to find panels to fit.

Tip #3: There are also a number of configuration options available for bifolds, which determine how the panels are folded and opened. You don’t always have a choice in the configuration of your doors, however, as this is often determined by the space requirement and arrangement of the room.

Tip #4: You must also carefully consider how the glass of your bifold doors will be glazed. As there are a number of glazing options currently available, you will be able to choose one that best meets the needs of your home (whether this is appearance, privacy or thermal insulation).

If you have always loved the look of timber bifold doors but have no idea where they would work in your home, you may be surprised to learn that they can actually work in almost any space. They are perfect for joining together your indoor and outdoor entertaining areas; for hiding away the mess and clutter of your children’s wardrobes; for blocking that unsightly laundry area from view when guests come to call; and so on.

This article shares valuable information about timber bifold doors. These bifolds in Melbourne can easily install in any area in your house and look perfect.
