You heard of copywriters making a killing with direct mail… email… VSLs… ClickBank… landing pages… funnels… Facebook Ads… Google Docs…
And you wanted in! To all of it!

Every time you took a stand by narrowing your focus, a new “shiny object” sat you back down.
But forget about the past. Because this moment is where it all changes.
