How to Become a Genius?

Entrepreneurs and geniuses come in all shapes, sizes and nationalities. There are entrepreneurs and geniuses all over the world.

To celebrate The Success Story being available to download for free on Amazon Kindle we have highlighted three of the generations greatest entrepreneurs and geniuses.

Albert Einstein

So, who is this first example? Germany’s own Albert Einstein. Yes the discoverer of this small insignificant thing called the theory of relativity or better known as E=MC2. And the bomb that wiped out Hiroshima.

He is our first example because he had a mindset that brought him to where he was. Here was some of his qualities and situations.

Good old Albert was:

• Dyslexic: This is a disorder of the brain by which someone will perceive letters backwards. This doesn’t make things easy to read so this brings us to the next bullet point.

• He stunk when it came to science and other subjects but excelled in math. You would think that someone could invent a hydrogen bomb that stunk at science.

• Didn’t even start talking until he was 2 and asked his mother why his sister didn’t have wheels. Hmm… No comment.

• He was married like three times and one of those times being his cousin.

• He was rejected from colleges yet turned down the offer to be president of Israel. This man didn’t even begin to succeed until his later life!

entrepreneur

 

So, what was the one thing that kept him going? Well, we could give the lame answer and say he had a win win and can do attitude, blah blah blah, you get that with every Crackerjack entrepreneurial book. But, that isn’t us. You’re reading this to get into the mindset of an entrepreneur and though he was more of an inventor and discoverer, Uncle Albert had the heart and mind of an entrepreneur. Why? Because as he said in one of his most famous quotes “ A clever person solves a problem, a wise person avoids it”. So what does this mean to the entrepreneurial mindset? Aren’t you supposed to run headlong and tackle problems?

Well, not really. An entrepreneur will find ways to avoid a problem that they can’t fix and think outside the box to find the resources to go around it. Therefor it is no longer an obstacle. The man that invented the H-bomb HAD TO think as an entrepreneur should think when they approach any obstacle. So thank you Uncle Albert for the rule of the entrepreneurial mindset number one:

Think Outside the Box! And be unconcerned with the opinions of Others about who you are and where you are going.

Mark Zuckerberg

So, now we know that thinking outside the box is an important thing, and must be coupled with not being concerned with what others think of you—because you can’t do one without the other. We go on to the other guy. Mark Zuckerberg.

Most people will either love him or hate him—think he cares? With Facebook worth over 200 Billion. So, did it walk right up to him and fall in his lap? NO, did he freak out and sell FB to the first person that offered this kind of money? Nope, the last we checked he is still the owner and living it large while the rest of us are still moaning about our mediocre lives on FB taking selfies and the millionth picture of our dog.

 

Mark Zuckerberg , Facebook

What was his mindset? Well, apart from sharing a mindset with Albert Einstein in entrepreneurial mindset number one—he had confidence. This boy walked away from Microsoft, and Mtv as well as several other major conglomerates that weren’t offering him chump change for this invention. He walked away from millions and billions. His people must have thought he lost his mind. But, no, he learned young to negotiate with one hand on the door and be confident.

The mindset of en entrepreneur can be fickle. We will tell you that, like Zuckerberg, you should keep your eyes on the prize and once you have a price or a goal you shouldn’t budge, even if the offer sounds great. Then we would tell you that the entrepreneurial mindset embraces change. OK, so thank you Zuck for the entrepreneurial mindset rule number two. Embrace change, only when it meets your needs. Stand your ground confidently.

Donald Trump

This leads into the third entrepreneurial rule of thumb and our last example Donald Trump. This is one of the most famous real estate moguls we have in the world with a net worth of 4 billion dollars as of September of 2014. He has the first two rules pretty down pat and more. He listens to his gut and not to much more. So, you’re thinking, he has years of experience on me, of course he can trust his gut! Not a thing to do with it. Yes experience is always good but entrepreneurs are fresh and new and out there with young blood and boundless energy —that is—if you want to be successful.

So, you need to get out of your own way! You can take advice but do it the way Darling Donald would, only from those you respect! If your gut tells you a startup is going to be a success and you don’t stop your first thought with fear then it will succeed and if it is your first one, make sure you are starting small so you can get out quick. Remember entrepreneurial mindset rule two— embrace change when it meets your needs.

Following your gut is one of the most important rule that Donald has followed consistently through his entrepreneurial career. He has also embraced diversity in his businesses. He is into everything from wealth creation systems to vitamin supplements and much more than his mainstay, real estate.

His other trait is tenacity. And I quote him as stating, “Anyone who thinks my story is even close to over is sadly mistaken. This is a mindset from a man who learned from an old school generation. But he emerged from that a cutting edge entrepreneur when he developed the mindset that he can be involved in more than one venture whether or not they are all a shining success.

freelance

And not all of these ventures have been. But, he made them work for him and his bottom line and he also understands that these are learning experiences. You are probably thinking, “He’s still learning”? Oh yes and that my friends is another mindset to really sink your teeth into.

There is never a time that you stop learning as an entrepreneur. You see, try to get this before we move on because it’s one of the most important parts of this book. Entrepreneurship is ever changing. The only thing evergreen about entrepreneurship is change—that’s it. Of you don’t learn what the trends are then you fail—simple as that. This is why we are lending the wisdom of the mindsets of the great entrepreneurs of our time and before. Because they have mastered this understanding. So another warm thank you from Donald Trump for providing the entrepreneurial mindset number three: Go with your gut and take advice, only from those you respect. Allow yourself to be diverse in your business dealings without fear of failure.

The Success Story Of Jeff Bezos and Amazon

The following is a sample from The Success Story: Discover and Learn How Ultra-Successful People Work and Achieve The Results They Want. If you want to get inspired and learn what the greats like Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford do, then you need this book.

Bezos is the famous guy that invented Amazon. He as you know is a technological genius that studied computers and excelled in the field. This is Jeff Bezos’ Success Story.

Bezos himself loved working with electronics. In high school, Bezos was recognized for his talent. That is how Bezos came to have an interest in computers and was recognized as a valedictorian in high school. In high school Bezos started his first business called the Dream Institute which was an educational summer camp for fourth, fifth and sixth graders. Bezos continued his interest in computers in Princeton University where he graduate summa cum laude in 1986 with a degree in computer science and electrical engineering. After graduation, he found work at several firms on Wall Street.

While his career was lucrative, Bezos took the risk in joining e-commerce. He moved to Seattle to start his career there. He invented the software that took his company to new heights. He named the company Amazon which is named after the South American river.

The initial launch of the company was great. Without any press or anything, Amazon was able to make the company profitable in just 30 days. In 2 months, they made sales of $20,000 a week.

After two years from the launch date, Amazon made a lucrative amount of sales close to more than 200% of its original amount. Bezos continued to expand Amazon beyond expectations and added several new products that diversified the company take it into newer heights year after year after year.

Jeff Bezos Success Story

While many dot coms went bust, Amazon’s sales reached historical records. At one time it was estimated at $1 billion, but estimates showed that it was estimated at $17 billion.
Kindle was Amazon’s newest invention after many years. This product was considered the first digital ebook. Kindle helped Amazon to new heights for a few years before its sales declined. The sales downturn was due to the launch of competitor products of similar capacity.

Amazon then launched Kindle Fire, which was their newest tablet. This tablet was created in similar capacity to Apple’s tablet, but was not able to beat the expectations of Apple’s technology. Kindle Fire helped Amazon’s sales and the company is still profitable.

In 2013, Bezos purchased Washington Post and other companies affiliated with it. The Washington Post was not struggling, however, the company president wanted to sell it due to the fact that the post was not able to keep itself up to date on new technology. The president said that the new contract with Amazon would take the company to better heights that would help it be up to date on technology and grow.

In the end of 2013, Bezos took to the air again when he revealed that he was making a new invention called the drone. He wanted to name it ‘Amazon Prime Air’. These drones would take a package directly to the customer. The drones are remote controlled. A test was done in December where a drone would deliver a package to the customer and it was successful. Each drone would only operate within a 10 mile radius.

Lessons learnt from Jeff Bezos

1) Throw away the box.

Most of the time we use the well-worn phrase “Think outside the box.” The problem with that type of thinking is that the box is still our point of reference. We need to be asking how we can do things well beyond our existing and traditional systems. It’s a difficult but necessary exercise. Amazon is Amazon because they refused to use current paradigms as their starting point.

2) Hard work is strategy.

I’ve never known a successful leader who did not expend years working hard. Sometimes we tend to think that there is a lot of luck in success. While there may be fortuitous circumstances, great leaders work hard to take advantage of them. Just eighteen years ago, Bezos was taking Amazon packages to the post office himself.

3) “Complaining is not a strategy”.

A lot of energy has been expended complaining about Amazon. Many have said they have unfair competitive practices. Others object to the way they acquire companies. Great leaders don’t waste time complaining about others. They use the precious resource of time to look to the future. The reason I have the sentence above in quotation marks is because it came directly from Bezos in the interview. It was my favorite quote of the segment.

4) Constantly take incremental steps to do everything better.

Even if Amazon is not making dramatic changes or causing disruptive innovation, the company is constantly seeking to improve its existing systems. If you decide to watch the segment, see how they are improving their fulfillment centers incrementally but constantly. Continuous small improvements lead to major improvements.

5) Create your own disruptive innovation.

It is better for an organization to innovate, even if hurts your existing services, products, or even ministries. If you don’t innovate, some other organization will, and the lifespan of your organization will be reduced.

If you would like to know more inspirational stories about great people and their journeys I suggest you check out The Success Story: Discover and Learn How Ultra-Successful People Work and Achieve The Results They Want. The book digs deeper and analyses what makes each successful individual successful and how you can emulate their success as well as giving advice on how to become successful, change your life or start your business.

Find out the Secret to Making Thousands of Dollars a Month on Amazon Kindle Selling eBooks Online

Making money on the internet can be kinda difficult at times. Especially with no guidance or even worse following the wrong guidance. You will just waste a ton of money on bullshit. Its a good job that we’re here. In this article you will learn how to make money on Amazon, specifically with the Amazon Kindle.

What is Amazon Kindle?

Amazon Kindle is an online eBook publishing platform from online book and retail giants Amazon. People visit the Amazon Kindle Store to purchase ebooks that they can read instantly on their tablet, laptop, e-reader or other platform.

Amazon Kindle is a very good platform to make tons of money on. Amazon Kindle market and distribute your book on their website and you receive money if your book sells. It could not be any simpler. It is very easy to get started on Amazon Kindle.

Getting Started

The first thing you would need to do is register an account on the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) website, this would involving registering your personal details as well as entering in a bank account in which Amazon can pay you. Once you have your account set up you are good to go and you will be able to publish mind-blowing books.

There are many advantages to selling ebooks on the Amazon Kindle, the first one being it is very simple to use and its even easier to upload your content on. You get to keep full control of the book and just with one click you can publish your book globally and it will reach readers worldwide.

You choose between two options for royalty payments. The first option is you receiving a 70% royalty fee if your book is priced between $2.99 and $9.99. The second option is if your book is priced between $0.99 and $200 then you receive a 35% royalty fee. I would recommend using the 35% option at the start and price your book at $0.99. This is because your book is relatively new and it will bring people in as $0.99 is not much of a financial investment as a higher price such as $3.99. More people will buy your book and thus you will get more reviews and more profit. Once your book is more established you can raise your price up to $2.99 or higher to receive the 70% royalty fee.

Reviews are very important when it comes to establishing your book and making it successful. Reviews help a customer decide if they want to buy the book or not. A good way to receive good reviews is to enrol your book into the KDP Select programme. The KDP Select programme is an promotion that Amazon designed which is basically Amazon let users download your book for free for a selected period of time. If you enrol your book into the programme you will get more people to download your book. This means if your book is good, (which it will be) people will want to share it with their friends and recommend it. They will share it on social network websites like Facebook and Twitter. That means more positive words about your book and you receive free advertising. Enrolling your book in the programme will also mean more people will have the chance to post positive reviews about the book.

Check out the video below from our new YouTube channel which tells you how to make money on Amazon Kindle. In the video Annie explains how effectively make money on this platform. For more great videos from The Marketing Guy be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel

Finding a Profitable Niche

Ok, that’s enough of our shameless self promotion, now back to business. You might be thinking what shall I write about? Write about your passion. Something you are passionate about helps because you will enjoy writing about it and you’ll be knowledgeable about it (if not research about it on the internet). Your passion can be anything from cats and dogs to football or cars. You can teach people how to look after their dog properly or how to play golf properly. You can even write about fiction books and create the next Harry Potter. You could write children’s books, romance novels, thrillers, anything that you want.

You also have to make sure the niche you have chosen is profitable, there is demand for it and it has low competition in the chosen niche. To see what is popular browse the Amazon Kindle Most Popular section or go on eZineArticles for some inspiration.

If you can’t be bothered to write your book yourself then you can always hire someone to write it for you. You can find someone on freelancing websites such as Elance or Odesk and get them to write for around $30-$40 for a 60 page book. All you have to do is make an account and post a job, which are both free of charge. Make sure you specify all the details you would like to include in your instructions to your freelancer.

Make sure the book you write or get written for you is of high quality. This is very important as you do not want to receive a negative review for your book. Remember feedback and reviews are very important and you do not want to get bad ratings.

Next you will need a design a good looking front cover that will attract buyers. You could design it yourself if you have good skills on Photoshop or you could hire someone on Fiverr. Fiverr is a micro-jobs website and people charge only $5 to make an excellent looking front cover.

A good tip for making extra money from your book is to include affiliate links in your book. If you would like to learn more about Affiliate Marketing click here and here. Inserting affiliate links will make you extra money. Want more help with Affiliate Marketing? Read the review of the Online Affiliate Guide here. Don’t overdo it and only put affiliate links in where you need to otherwise it will just look spammy. Also dedicate a page to writing down a copyrighted notice that protects your book like this.

Getting your book on Kindle

Once you have done this you can upload put your book and front cover together and convert it into PDF format. You can do this on Microsoft Word. After you have done that you can upload it onto Amazon Kindle. You also have to correctly format your book in the correct Kindle format. You can use AK Elite Bookmaker Software to correctly format your books in the correct method. You can also do it yourself by following the Amazon Kindle Formatting Guidelines Log into your Kindle account, click add title, set the price of your book and you are good to go. Make sure you make use of the description and the title. Write a good description as this is one of the main things that sells your book. Make sure you tell potential customers what the book is, what you will learn, why you should buy the book and any other information they need. The description word limit is up to 700 words so make sure you use all of them. Insert keywords into your title. So for example if your book is teaching people how to play golf then you could call your book:

Learn how to play Golf like a Pro – Step by step guide to play Golf

Play Golf like Tiger Woods – The Ultimate Guide to Playing Golf

Promoting your eBook

So you have now successfully published your book on Amazon Kindle. Well done. Now you need to promote it like crazy! Make social media pages for your book on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus and also post content that promotes your book. Get people to share it on their Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Create a blog for it. Make a video that promotes your book and post it on Youtube. Get bloggers to review your book. Anything that spreads the word of your book.

You could also give it away for free to people. Post it on Facebook groups and fan pages about your niche. In our golf example you could post it on Facebook and Twitter pages that are similar to your niche. You can gift the book to chosen email addresses therefore getting people to give verified Amazon reviews.

Submitting your book onto your website to get it more popular. The main aim should be to make the book viral. Posting it on book websites like GoodReads and LibraryThing. Get the Ultimate eBook creator, it also lets you publish to Apple iBookstore and Barnes and Noble. Click here to find out more about it.

Put a link to your website in the footer of your book on each page, this way people can visit your website. It will bring more traffic to your website or blog as well.

By following these steps and using a ‘Repeat and Rinse’ process you can create an eBook empire that brings you in thousands of dollars of passive income a month without you even doing anything. All you have to do is repeat this process and carry on publishing books.
