If you want to sell hundreds of thousands of books and earn a million dollars, read on …
Here’s how to do it, straight from the mouth of someone who made it …
I have been an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a little place called Chardon, Ohio. That’s just outside of Cleveland.
When I was a kid, probably 8-10 years old, I sold seeds door to door. I wanted that walkie-talkie set when I was a kid and if you sold enough seeds, you had a pair of walkie-talkies.
I saw a space ad on the back of a comic. You see them all the time selling greeting cards or selling seeds. I lived in a farming community so I thought it would be a good thing to do and it was indeed great …
When I ordered the little kit, it came with a shade. I just walked over and with a cold knock on the door gave my speech.
Got those walkie-talkies and my friends and played army men with midnight missions with our walkie-talkies and had a blast. My career as an entrepreneur was established from that moment on. A space advertisement had changed my life.
I used to run those commercials in the Charles Atlas and Mike Marvel comics. They motivated me a lot and when I got a little older I saw the ad in ’78, I guess it was for Joe Karbo, The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches, and I said it was for me! That is exactly what I wanted to do.
Today I consider myself the most important type of space advertising in the world. I’ve gone through a couple hundred old comics and copied all those space ads.
I took space ads very seriously when I was 12 years old. My dad was an engineer. He traveled all over the world and one summer he took us to Aruba. I didn’t know anyone there and I had a stack of comics that I bought from a local pharmacy in Oranjestad in Aruba and I just stayed in my room reading these comics.
Once again, these space announcements moved me very much. I liked the psychology that copywriters used to get right to the center of my soul.
They knew this was exactly what he wanted. It amazed me because they seemed to understand me so well. They never knew me and I wonder how the hell these guys do with this and they understand me so well and they know exactly what I want, when I want, with the depth that I wanted.
I don’t think intellectually I fully understood it at the time. It wasn’t until the ’70s that I got the Karbo material, that’s when my desire to be able to write like that and sell stuff really started to develop.
I first saw the Karbo ad in a magazine called Free Enterprise, a great magazine that no longer exists, but was one of the top opportunity magazines at the time. They were simply loaded with opportunities. This was one of them.
So, I ordered your book. After I got the book, I devoured it.
I loved the first part of the book on attitude because I’m a spiritual guy to begin with. I like psychology and I understood that inherent. He really didn’t have to sell me that part of the book. I was reading Think and Grow Rich and all the self-help books, the Dale Carnegie stuff before I found Karbo. So, that was natural for that. It just went straight into my psyche.
After reading that book, I launched my first direct mail project. The rest, as they say, is history.
