It's About the Journey, Not the Destination!

Sally’s Newsletter, Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

"There is nothing you can't do, if you set your
mind to it. Anything is possible." —Rick

* * * Sally Commentary * * *

I attended Author101University last week. It was
a wonderful event, and I got to meet Mark Victor
Hansen. I asked him what he thought about a
Chicken Soup for the Daughter in Law's Soul and
he said, "It's too small a market, but perhaps if it was
re-titled..." ...then someone whisked him away for a
photo op! I felt like I was on the precipice of
a mountain, about to receive the secret knowledge
from the great guru but then right before I got
the information, I got pushed off the mountain
top. Perhaps it's a universal sign that it’s
about the journey, and not the destination...

Well, as curiosity killed the cat, I took it upon
myself to twitter Mr. Hansen to see if I could
retrieve the end of his sentence. I didn’t
get a response, but, @MarkVHansen is now
following @SallyShields. Kevin Bacon sure had it
right with the 6 degrees of separation, but with
the advent of twitter, you can now go straight to
the source! Maybe I’ll DM him. LOL.

* * * A Most WONDERFUL Opportunity * * *

Can you believe it’s already summertime?

That’s why I was so excited to hear about the Get
it Done 
series from my friend Stefanie
Hartman. If anyone knows 
marketing, it’s
Stefanie—but she also understands how 
it can be to try to set it all up for yourself!

Read this message from Stefanie and add it to
‘Urgent’ list to go check out this
site today. I’m on 
my way there now

Stefanie Hartman here –

Maybe you’re feeling like me—I had SO many plans
my business this year! I was going to
get my blog up and 
running, create my
ebook, do my podcast, sign up for all
those social networks and build an amazing
relationship base 
with my customers—and I
was going to have it all done by 

And yet, here it is—June already—and I’ve only
got a few of those things checked off my
list! And even the 
things that ARE done I
find it hard to keep up with on a 
basis. I mean, I’ve got a business to run!

On the other hand, I really believe that it’s
important to 
have all of these business
growth and marketing tools up and 
—because who doesn’t want to see their business

I am so excited to tell you about a new service
that is 
going to let you check off
everything on your list for your 
—and check it off fast (and cheaply too!). The
thing is, I love marketing strategy and
techniques and 
teaching my students the
behind-the-scenes secrets of how 
the super
successful become well-known, generate massive
leads, and well…make a ton of money doing

And of course I put many of these techniques into
in my own business – but even I
can never seem to do ALL 
the ones I want
to in a year – I just don’t have the 
or the energy. The real truth is (and trust me,
most marketers won’t tell 
you this) –
you’ll probably never have all of the hours
and dollars that you’ll need to learn and
implement all 
the top marketing strategies
for your business—it’s 
just too much!

And when you’re continually balancing your
business needs, 
wearing many hats, and
trying to enjoy a life at the same 
you’ve gotta ask yourself...

Who can really, in reality, study for 10-12
hours every single day just to keep up
with the latest traffic and list building
strategies! And really, why the heck should
you have to?!

So it got me thinking… how GREAT would it be if
you could 
just press a button, and POOF –
your blog is done! (And 
not just any blog
—but a blog that is custom designed for
YOU, including tons of the little used,
yet powerful 
strategies that BOOST traffic
to your website, packed FULL 
of the LATEST
and PROVEN Social Media strategies!)

There’s one thing you can check off your list and
not have 
to worry about anymore!
Then, how great would it be if you
could press that button 
again and get your
podcast done? 

Press it again—and
you’ve just created your entire 
social media
online advertising world...

I’m talking Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Squidoo,
Pages, LinkedIn, Self Growth, and MUCH

Again, and you’ve got your
E-book and your Press kit—all of it— DONE!

Wow—I want to know where that button

Well, lucky for you and me, I
have been searching for 
special people to
help me with all this stuff, and I have
FOUND them. 

These are the
EXPERTS —GENIUSES at what they do—and
rather than selling you a program for
$8000 (that honestly 
you don’t have the
desire or time to spend learning 
to teach you how to do all this stuff – they’re
going to make it a LOT easier—on both you
AND your

* * * Something incredible is coming! * * *

My friends over at non-profit Life of Learning
Foundation have just released a startling new
program I felt sure you'd want to know about.

It's called Secrets of Being Unstoppable: a
comprehensive 14-hour audio program that shows
you how to realize and release a secret power
most of us don't even realize is ours!

A power that can help you:

—Outsmart any fearful, anxious, or stressful feeling

—Have fun wherever you are, no matter what you're doing

—Be daring, bold, courageous, and audacious

—Walk straight into moments that have always scared you

—Follow through and achieve what your heart is yearning to do

—Put the magic and meaning back into your relationships

The program features groundbreaking insights and
instruction from best-selling self-realization
author, Guy Finley.

Guy has worked tirelessly for nearly 30 years
fine-tuning and honing this material. And now in
this latest release, the staff at his non-profit
Foundation have taken the very best of his
individual programs and packaged them all into
one complete course.

Here are some of the great titles you'll receive:

—The Secret of Being Unstoppable
—5 Simple Steps to Make Yourself Fearless
—Awaken the Greatness Within
—The Power to Let Go and Live In the Now
—Secrets of Higher, Happier Human Relationships
—5 Words to Make You the Master of Your Own Life

... plus ten more titles on other vital topics.

The reason I recommend this so highly is because
it's one of the few programs out there that
actually delivers on its promise. There are a lot
of experts who talk about living fearlessly, and
about living from an indomitable spirit. But they
never seem to answer the one question everyone

How do I do it?

In Secrets of Being Unstoppable, you'll finally
get the answer to that question. But even better
than that, you'll find yourself holding the keys
to an extraordinary new kind of understanding
that will prove itself - by far - to be the
greatest benefit of all.

I urge you to invest a few minutes of your time
to read the following message from Jeff Roberts
at Life of Learning. He gives a very intriguing
explanation of the insights, benefits, and new
understanding you'll get from this program, and
he talks about a special collection of free bonus
material they're including right now during its
initial release.

To those seeking the Extraordinary Life:
Hidden deep within you is an unstoppable power.
Unstoppable in relationships. Unstoppable in
business. Unstoppable in revelation.

This power is so extraordinary that even just a
brief glimpse of its infinite potential reveals
the possibility of touching the stars themselves.
Its stirring inspires us to change as we must to realize the
purpose of our own being.

The barriers that presently keep us from the
success we seek - limitation, discouragement, bad
luck - hold no real authority over this unclaimed
gift. When we awaken to its higher possibilities,
there is nothing that can stand in our way.

Nothing! Sound too good to be true? I assure you it

There is a set of real, actual "principles of
power" you can use to find a totally new kind of
self-command... a strength that cannot be touched
by anything this world throws at you.... a
character that can walk straight into any
difficult moment without the slightest
hesitation. And that's just the beginning...
The man or woman who discovers the secrets of
being unstoppable discovers there's literally no
end to what is possible. They live in a world
most can only dream of - a world without fear,
overflowing with fresh energy, and filled with a
new kind of success beyond imagination. Living in
this world is their fair and just reward for
daring to challenge the status quo, and setting
out in a bold new direction! But like I said,
this is only the beginning. There's so much more
to the story... To learn how you can unlock the
great secrets of the Unstoppable Life, and start
realizing everything your heart has ever longed
for, please visit the link below.
