A year later, Kelly had an extraordinary meditation experience that forever changed her life. She explains that, “A brilliant sphere of golden light appeared above my head and then exploded inside of me. There are no words to describe the light, the inspiration and love that overwhelmed me in that moment. Suddenly, I knew that my life’s work and service would utilize the power of sound to assist others in their transformation.” From that time on, Kelly has been researching and teaching the principles of brain optimization for personal and spiritual development.

Don Miguel Ruiz
Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a humble family with ancient traditions in rural Mexico, the youngest of 13 children. He considers himself very lucky, as this was where he learned from an early age that everything is possible, if we really want it.
His parents, Don Jose and Dona Sarita, as well as his grandfather, Don Leonardo, all believed that Miguel would continue their legacy in the centuries old Toltec tradition. Instead Don Miguel attended medical school, and became a surgeon.
For several years he practiced neurosurgery with his brothers, and he realized that what needed to be healed was not only the physical brain, but the human mind as well.
A near fatal car accident changed the direction of Don Miguel’s life. He experienced himself as pure awareness outside of the constraints of his physical body. He realized that the Toltec wisdom of his family contained all of the tools needed to change the human mind. Don Miguel promptly returned to his mother to finish his training and he became a Shaman.
Don Miguel moved to the United States to share his wisdom, and spent the next 15 years exploring ways to heal and change the human mind. He witnessed his students struggling to quiet their minds and sought to create tools to assist them. The result of this quest was The Four Agreements®. This book contains a specific series of practical steps, that when used by anyone, can result in consistent and long-term personal transformation.
In February of 2002, Don Miguel suffered a near-fatal heart attack. The damage from the heart attack and subsequent coma left him with a heart functioning at only 16% of capacity and in constant pain. Don Miguel would not accept his doctor’s prognosis that he would be restricted to an inactive life of resting at home. He personally embodied the message he shares, by continuing to joyfully live his life, sharing his message through books, lectures and journeys. Though he was enjoying life he also knew that he was slowly dying and focused on preparing his sons to carry on his legacy.
In 2009 Don Miguel’s body began to deteriorate much more rapidly and he applied for a heart transplant. In August 2010 he was put on the transplant waiting list. On October 9th 2010, Don Miguel successfully received a heart transplant. For Don Miguel this is a new beginning and with deep gratitude and generosity he is eager to share his message with all of humanity.
In the tradition of the Toltec, a Nagual (shaman) guides an individual to personal freedom. After exploring the human mind from a Toltec as well as scientific perspective, Don Miguel has combined old wisdom with modern insights and created a new message for all mankind, based in truth and common sense. He has dedicated his life to sharing this new message through practical concepts that promote transformation. His message is simple and when implemented, even incrementally, changes lives.
Don Miguel is highly respected throughout the world. He has received numerous recognitions, including a US Air Force challenge coin engraved with The Four Agreements, and he is referenced as a National Heirloom of Mexico.
The Four Agreements®, published in 1997; was a New York Times bestseller for more than 7 years and the 36th bestselling book of the decade. Other books have followed; The Mastery of Love, The Voice of Knowledge, Prayers, Beyond Fear and The Fifth Agreement, a collaboration with his son Don Jose. All of his books are international bestsellers.
‘Please help us to change the world’! Only you can change the world that you create, and by changing your world, the world will change… ‘and that is the Truth that will set you free’.
Johnny B Truant
“I know what you’re thinking.
Maybe you came here from one of the high-traffic, high-readership entrepreneurial sites that I guest post on all the time (Copyblogger, IttyBiz, Problogger, Project Mojave, etc.). Or maybe you’re here because you heard that I’m a kick-ass small business consultant (I am), that Ibuild excellent websites fairly inexpensively (I do), or that I’m the guy who threw shoes at Former President Bush (you can’t prove anything; see you in court).
And then you arrived at my homepage, read some of my latest posts, and said, “Am I in the wrong place? What do these idiotic ramblings have to do with any of the reasons I came here?”
See, I run a different kind of business.
What I do doesn’t make sense. I don’t do internet marketing correctly at all, and my search engine stats are terrible. I don’t write about the things that make me money. I don’t have a big email list, and I don’t contact the list I do have often enough, or in the right way. I’ve never spent a dime on advertising. I swear too much and never, ever act “professional.”
And in nine months, I went from literally having never made a cent online to making five figures a month.
What I’ve built — and what I help my clients to build — is what Sonia Simone of Copyblogger coined a “Third Tribe” business.
In the Third Tribe…
… it’s okay take off the businessy mask, and just be yourself.
… it’s okay to stop worrying about pleasing everyone, and just please “your people.”
… it’s okay to stop trying to compete on price, and to instead start creating raving fans who are dying to work with you.
… it’s okay to be a real, multi-dimensional person, and to market yourself by just kind of hanging out and being cool.
So yes, I build really great websites for clients while writing about why Christmas is gay. And yes, I became a widely respected consultant and coach in part by explaining why credit makes me want to barf.
So who am I, really? A cool guy (who later became a business partner) named Lee Stranahan interviewed me once and said that I was a “punk rock business consultant.” I really liked that, so I started using it.
Hang out. Look around. If you dig what I’m about, drop me a line, or connect with me on Twitter or Facebook. See if you’re one of my people. If we fit, that’s very cool. And if we don’t, that’s cool too.
And when you figure out who or what exactly I am, be sure to let me know.”
“We live on an amazing planet. So much life. So many possibilites for learning and evolving. It truly is a garden of Eden with an open matrix for creation. My personal mission or "life quest" as I call it… is to uncover optimum tools for personal evolution and mind development. I started my quest some 30 years ago inventing mind technologies for altering mind states, accelerated learning and changing the way we see our personal reality. A new mind really does allow one to experience a new world. This led to the acquisition of a formally top secret mind technology developed by the Pentagon known as Technical Remote Viewing. We teach it, and use its advanced applications for developing other exotic technologies, as well as tapping into future trajectories. Some pretty amazing things have emerged from this project even though we are still in the embryonic stages of what will become a revolution in understanding of our mind’s potential. My primary interest in all this, is the evolution of consciousness and seeing how far we can develop as a species. Though we face challenges, I believe the human adventure is just beginning. Its up to each of us to continue pioneering, and offering our individual skills to craft the best of all possible world’s for our children and our children’s children. Won’t you join me on the quest?”
Louise L Hay
RECENTLY DUBBED “the closest thing to a living saint” by the Australian media, Louise L. Hay is also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. Revised and expanded in 1988, this best-selling book introduced Louise’s concepts to people in 33 different countries and has been translated into 25 languages throughout the world.
Through Louise’s healing techniques and positive philosophy, millions have learned how to create more of what they want in their lives, including more wellness in their bodies, minds, and spirits. Her own personal philosophy was forged from her tormented upbringing. Her childhood was unstable and impoverished, and her teen years were marked by abuse. Louise ran away from home and ended up in New York City, where she became a model and married a prosperous businessman. Although it appeared that her life had turned around, it was not until the marriage ended 14 years later that her healing really began.
Louise started what would become her life’s work in New York City in 1970. She attended meetings at the Church of Religious Science and began training in the ministerial program. She became a popular speaker at the church, and soon found herself counseling clients. This work quickly blossomed into a full-time career. After several years, Louise compiled a reference guide detailing the mental causes of physical ailments, and developed positive thought patterns for reversing illness and creating health. This compilation was the basis for Heal Your Body, also known affectionately as “the little blue book.” She began traveling throughout the United States, lecturing and facilitating workshops on loving ourselves and healing our lives.

I’m interested in liberating truth. I think feminine power and progressive commerce are revolutionary forces. In my experience, if you steer clear of dogma and muster up more love than you thought you had to give, then your vitality increases, sweetness surfaces, unity happens. I believe in the creative power of pleasure. I’m convinced that the desire to be genuine is a divine imperative.
I never went to university. For this, I am very grateful.
A LONG TIME AGO … I had a real job, co-running The Body Shop Canada’s Department of Social Inventions. We refurbished Romanian orphanages, and ran recycling and rock-the-vote campaigns. So thankfully, it wasn’t like, a real job.
I was the Executive Director of a Washington-DC think tank where I managed a team of brilliant analysts to create future scenarios for the likes of the Pentagon, IBM and the State of the World Forum. I hung out with Navy Admirals and signed NDAs every other day. That was intense.
Before that, I ran my own communications and business development agency, “promoting visionary people and projects,” including a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, a philosopher-physicist, a rogue economist, the Pulitzer-winning co-founder of Greenpeace, and a few old pop stars.
NOT SO LONG AGO … I was featured in BusinessWeek.com, USAToday.com, Elle, Body + Soul, Vogue Australia, Better Homes & Gardens, Globe & Mail, The National Post, The Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, and numerous talk shows. I was the lead author ofStyle Statement: Live By Your Own Design, which The Globe & Maildeemed, “Haute Minded”. It ranked as an Amazon bestseller and Oprah producers called. That was fun. I built a big website and media presence based on that brand, and then I went super rogue to do my own thing.

Brad has had the privilege and pleasure of working with a diverse group of clients, from CEO’s to professional and NCAA athletes, from chiropractors and psychiatrists to corporate and federal attorneys, from award-winning actors to residents at a program for homeless men and women in Santa Monica. For several years he taught a weekly class using EFT and guided imagery at Sacramento Drug Court. He has also been a presenter at a number of events, including several International Energy Psychology Conferences and the Walk On Water (WOW) Fest in Los Angeles. He has presented at Jack Canfield’sBreakthrough to Success event, and has done teleseminars with “The Secret” stars Bob Doyle and Dr. Joe Vitale.

here’s what you should know about Jon…
By most standards, going to work at the office — which also doubles as your residential 8th floor balcony overlooking the ocean in coastal Mexico — is pretty badass. But what makes it even more remarkable is knowing how Jon Morrow arrived there in the first place.
Jon was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a degenerative neuromuscular disease that progressively weakens the body to the point of complete atrophy, and eventual death. For most families, it would be an excuse to throw in the towel and give in before ever giving life a shot. Not for the Morrows.
“I was really lucky to have two incredible parents,” Jon says. “It’s one of the reasons why I’ve survived this disease. But it’s also one of the reasons I’m able to do these things.”
Those things that he refers to are accomplishments that most able-bodied people would not believe possible even for themselves, much less for someone unable to move from the neck down. Things like graduating high school at 16, starting three businesses by 18, graduating college magna cum laudewith a 3.9 GPA by 21, and buying and selling millions of dollars in luxury real estate at 22 without ever being able to see the inside of a single property.
Having left real estate behind, today Jon Morrow goes to work in that beachside “office” as Associate Editor of Copyblogger.com, is a creator of a guest blogging course, and licensed his Partnering Profitscourse to Lateral Action. The key to success for him, he says, and anyone else for that matter, is discovering what’s really important to you, deciding that you’re willing to pay the price, and thenfighting for your ideas. Anything else is living a life of disability.
“I would rather die doing what I want to do then die in a nursing home bed somewhere watching TV for 15 hours a day surrounded by other people waiting to die,” he says. “To me that is the scariest thing imaginable.”

One particular outreach in St. Louis is the St. Louis Dream Center. The Dream Center serves the inner city through hands-on programs targeted to reaching the lost and hurting with the love of Christ. Dave and Joyce founded the DC in 2000, and it continues to be an integral part of Joyce Meyer Ministries.
Sharing Her Story to Help Others
Over the years, God has provided Joyce with many opportunities to share her testimony and the life-changing message of the Gospel. Having suffered sexual abuse as a child as well as just dealing with the struggles of everyday life, Joyce discovered the freedom to live victoriously by applying God’s Word to her life and in turn desires to help others do the same.
Joyce is and continues to be an incredible testimony of the dynamic, redeeming work of Jesus Christ.
I dedicated the first half of my life studying all that can go wrong with the female body—and learning how to fix it. I’m devoting the second half of my life to illuminating all that can go right. – C.N.
Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and the world’s leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness. Dr. Northrup is a leading proponent of medicine that acknowledges the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness, Dr. Northrup teaches women how to thrive at every stage of life.
Following a career as a practicing physician in obstetrics and gynecology for over 25 years, Dr. Northrup has dedicated her life to inspiring women to flourish. She encourages women to create health on all levels by tuning into their inner wisdom.
“When we find the connection between our thoughts, beliefs, physical health, and life circumstances, we find that we are in the driver’s seat of our lives and can make profound changes. Nothing is more exhilarating or empowering.”
One can see that Dr. Northrup “walks her talk.” She put her own personal truth on paper in 1994, in her first book,Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom(Bantam). This groundbreaking classic quickly became a New York Timesbestseller and has been the veritable bible of women’s health for nearly two decades. With its raw facts and intriguing case histories, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom explains how to “create physical and emotional health and healing.”
Her second book, The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001), has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wise words when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenged convention with inspiring insights—the “change” is not a collection of symptoms to be “fixed,” but a mind/body revolution, which brings tremendous opportunity for happiness.
Dr. Northrup has sold over 3 million books in 20 languages. Mother-Daughter Wisdom, her third book (Bantam, 2005), was voted Amazon’s #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind/body health and was also nominated for a Quill Award. In her latest books, The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House, 2008) and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook (Hay House, 2009), Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure.
Dr. Northrup has also hosted seven highly successful public-television specials, beginning in 1998. Her latest is based on the newly revised edition ofWomen’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and first aired nationwide in June 2010.
Dr. Northrup has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today Show, NBC Nightly News, The View, Rachael Ray, Good Morning America, 20/20, andThe Dr. Oz Show.
As a business owner, physician, former surgeon, mother, writer, and speaker, Dr. Northrup acknowledges our individual and collective capacity for growth, freedom, joy, and balance. When she’s not traveling, Dr. Northrup loves devoting her leisure time to dancing Argentine Tango, going to the movies, getting together with her daughters and friends, boating, and reading.
“Tim is Indiana Jones for the digital age. I’ve already used his advice to go spearfishing on remote islands and ski the best hidden slopes of Argentina. Simply put, do what he says and you can live like a millionaire.”

Timothy Ferriss, nominated as one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Business People of 2007” and Forbes Magazine’s “Names You Need to Know in 2011,” is an angel investor (StumbleUpon, Facebook, Digg, Twitter, etc.) and author of the new #1 New York Times bestseller, The 4-Hour Body. He is also author of the #1 New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and BusinessWeek bestseller, The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been sold into 35 languages. He is listed as #13 in the “100 Most Influential VCs, Angels & Investors” rankings.
Newsweek calls Tim “the world’s best guinea pig,” which he takes a compliment.
This blog is one of Inc. Magazine’s “19 Blogs You Should Bookmark Right Now“, and it has been ranked #1 on the Top 150 Management and Leadership Blogs list, based on Google PageRank, Alexa traffic ranking, Bing results, Technorati authority, Feedburner subscribers, and PostRank.
Tim has been featured by more than 100 media outlets–including The New York Times, The Economist, TIME, Forbes, Fortune, CNN, and CBS–and has been a popular guest lecturer at Princeton University since 2003, where he presents entrepreneurship as a tool for ideal lifestyle design and world change.
He is also an active education reformer and has architected experimental social media campaigns such as LitLiberation to out-fundraise traditional media figures like Stephen Colbert 3-to-1 at zero cost, building schools overseas and financing more than 25,000 US students in the process. He is on the advisory board of DonorsChoose.org, an educational non-profit and the first charity to make the Fast Company list of 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World.
Tim has been invited to speak at some of the world’s most innovative organizations, including Google, MIT, Harvard Business School, Nike, PayPal, Facebook, The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Microsoft, Ask.com, Nielsen, Princeton University, the Wharton School, and the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He has also been invited to speak and keynote at world-renowned technology summits including EG, FOO Camp, E-Tech, Supernova, LeWeb, and the Web 2.0 Exposition, where he shared the stage with figures like Eric Schmidt, Chairman of the Board of Google, and Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.
Tim has amassed a diverse (and certainly odd) roster of experiences:
- Princeton University guest lecturer in High-Tech Entrepreneurship and Electrical Engineering
- Finance and Entrepreneurship advisor at Singularity University at NASA Ames, co-founded by Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil.
- First American in history to hold a Guinness World Record in tango
- Speaker of 5 languages (6 if he’s reactivating something previously studied)
- National Chinese kickboxing champion
- Horseback archer (yabusame) in Nikko, Japan
- 2009 Henry Crown Fellow at the Aspen Institute
- Political asylum researcher
- MTV breakdancer in Taiwan
- Hurling competitor in Ireland
- Wired Magazine’s “Greatest Self-Promoter of 2008″
- Actor on hit TV series in mainland China and Hong Kong (“Human Cargo”)
Tim received his BA from Princeton University in 2000, where he studied in the Neuroscience and East Asian Studies departments. He developed his nonfiction writing with Pulitzer Prize winner John McPhee and formed his life philosophies under Nobel Prize winner Kenzaburo Oe. He is 32 years old, and The 4-Hour Workweek is his first book.
They call him The World’s First Hypnotic Marketer.
Hypnotic, because the writing style he uses grabs you, sucks you in to it’s mesmerizing pull… and forces you to read every word of what lays in front of you.
Marketer, because he’s one of the greatest marketers of all times – consistently writing and implementing record breaking marketing strategies for himself, and his trusted clients.
Combine the two – hypnotic and marketer – and you hold the solution to one of the biggest problems in advertising today. People are inundated with marketing and advertising messages… some say upwards of 4,000 messages we are subjected to throughout an average day. Dr Vitale has a golden way of being that one piece of writing that you read, and take action on, out of those 4,000.
It didn’t start this way for Dr Vitale though… 30 years ago he was broke, desperate and living on the street. Through a series of odd “coincidences”, he found his inner calling and has gone on to great fame and success, along with several best selling books. One of the top copywriters in the world, and one of the most successful, and respected, marketers in the world.
Dr Vitale is also the most generous, humble and down to earth, good people you will ever have the privilege to meet. I personally have had the honor to work with him and am astounded on how real he is, in such an unreal world. If you are looking at hiring Joe to work with you – jump on it! Your bank account will seriously thank you.
My name is Tiffany Dow and I am a healthy, confident online marketing leader, wife, and mother of 3.
Twelve years ago I created a career for myself on the Internet when my newborn son was diagnosed with a severe case of RSV (a respiratory infection).
I’m one of the lucky ones – someone who avoided getting sucked into scams. I happened to have a mentor who guided me to a successful career with a foundation in ethics.
But he also took steps in helping me achieve more confidence. He showed concern for my health. He supported me in relationship obstacles.
For a long time I simply taught “online marketing,” which I have been very successful at. But I’ve evolved into a whole life mindset – one that says you need to pursue success in all areas of your life for it to truly work.
When you sign up for my list on the right, you’ll be greeted with an email from me that tells more about what I’m all about. I hope you let ME get to know YOU as much as I reveal myself, my struggles and my triumphs to my own audience…
Here’s what I teach:
1. Branding for longevity – not flash in the pan success.
2. Relationship building with your customers – the kind where you shed tears when they’re going through something and cheer when they succeed – and they do the same for you.
3. Info product creation where refunds rates aren’t a problem because you DO divulge all of the steps – not hide them.
4. Money making ideas that don’t rely on you gaming the Google search engine or lying to customers about what they’ll learn. I teach options that help you prosper faster (but don’t ask me how long until you make a certain amount of money because anyone who tells you a date and number is a LIAR). And I also teach you long-term, yet slower profit growing business options – perfect for those who only have limited hours to work on their business.
5. Confidence – I find it lacking in even the most seasoned Internet marketers. You can put a cap on your fear and do this with my help and the support of those in my community.
6. Tools that will help you – a combination of free and paid options. I do the same with my course instructions. I teach free and paid paths, because not everyone has investment money (even for a domain) up front – I know because I’ve been there myself and I used free methods to get going!
Sound good so far? You might appreciate the way I’m blunt and honest and not afraid to tell what I think – or it may offend you because you prefer rainbows and unicorns. I share my struggles (like if I go through a course and get frustrated, but I also show my end result of success or failure – and it’s not always pretty)!
If you’re finished being lied to, ready to work hard and not flit around to a new get rich quick scheme, then sign up above or visit my blog (link in the list below). If you’re not ready to buckle down yet, bookmark this page and return when you’re finally at the end of your rope and I’ll toss you a lifeline.
