Rich Schefren's GPS Program is completely SOLD OUT!

Hi guys,

I just found out from Rich and his Team that their Guided Profits System closed its doors on Friday night at 12:00 midnight.

What, you thought it would be open forever? Check it out and see for yourself:

However, these Strategic Profits programs are still available, most of them are completely FREE and you can grab them while you can by clicking on the following links below:

Oh crap--the gloves are coming off...

Have you had it, guys?

I mean REALLY had it?

Are those stupid little walls between you and your destiny making you frustrated, angry, and ready to spit nails?

You know the ones I'm talking about:

Trying to do everything right the first time...
Being too linear in your thinking...
Working too hard for too little...
Always feeling two steps behind...
Well, I know what you're going through.

Yes, believe it or not, I struggle with many of the same constraints you do.
Seems like very time I start to get a little momentum... SMACK! One of the same ol' friggin' roadblocks pops up and says,
"Hello, remember me? I'll be standing between you and your success today--and every day".


It's enough to make a guy toss up his hands and say, "Screw this. It ain't worth the hassle."

But don't. Please don't. Because help is on the way.

There's light at the end of the tunnel. And no, it's not an oncoming freight train.
It's the guru to the gurus, holding a flashlight and a GPS that will lead you out of this mess--once and for all.

Follow The Light, guys

Rich Schefren has had it with constraints too. And he's taking the gloves off.
In his new Global Profits System (GPS), Rich takes on the biggest nightmare to ever plague entrepreneurs: all that dinky little crap that seems so insignificant, yet holds so much stopping power.
Inside this in-depth coaching program, you'll walk side-by-side with Rich as he guides through a 30-day program that's not only going to push aside those constraints that are keeping you from success...
But literally PUMMEL those SOB's into submission.
Isn't that what you really want?

Follow The Light, guys

Rich's coaching programs are legendary for reversing the downward slide of a business and delivering a tidal wave of profits in record time..

Or actually, I should say "coaching PROGRAM"--with no "s". Because Rich doesn't do this type of thing anymore.

In fact, after the first program concluded (the same one that helped launch Joel Comm, Mike Filsaime, Michel Cheney, Tellman Knudson and many more into the top guru ranks), he swore off ever doing another one.

Why? Because it's an intense, grueling process.

Rich is on the phone with you virtually every day for a month...he's drilling you with questions about your business...and he's coming up with revolutionary strategies and tactics to pull massive profits from unlikely places.

This is not a "go to my blog and read this article once a month" thing. Rich virtually grabs you by the hand and FORCES you to be successful.

And if you can't handle it, then you shouldn't look at this page.

Follow The Light, guys

So are you ready?

Ready to fight through the roadblocks that are keeping you from the wealth, freedom, and lifestyle of your dreams?

Ready to finally discover how to eliminate those nasty walls you keep banging your head against?

Ready to smash your constraints once and for all?
Good--because Rich just pulled the gloves off. And he's about to go all UFC on those bad boys.

DING DING. Round one is underway...

Follow The Light, guys


Val Slastnikov

*IT Solutions - Better, Cheaper, Faster*

P.S. I know this email may have sounded a bit overly aggressive, but I did that to get your attention...

Because make no mistake about it: you're in a battle.
A battle for your time. A battle for your resources. A battle for your business profits.
And this battle is to the DEATH.

So you need someone in your corner who will lead the charge and fight for you tooth and nail...someone who's a leader among leaders...someone who knows how to defeat constraints and help you achieve the victory that's eluded you for way too long.

And that someone is Rich Schefren.
So you gonna let them win?

Only 2.5 Constraints away from becoming the first Female Guru Online

Have you read Rich Schefren's latest Report, "The Uncertainty Syndrome" already? I did, and so did this attractive young lady that calls herself a "Video Marketing Queen". Her real name is Maria Andros, and she responded to Rich Schefren's Challenge to identify the biggest Constraint in her business that is holding her back. As per Maria, she is "only two and a half constraints away from becoming the first Female Guru Online."

The winner of Rich Schefren's Challenge will receive $100,000 Worth in Coaching and Training, as well as:

A full ride scholarship to his upcoming coaching program – where Rich and his Team will work together with you each and every day for thirty days. Together you’ll obliterate one business debilitating constraint after another. The net effect will be that what you write down on his blog will be true for you no latter than Halloween.
A one day blitz for your business – they’ll send you your airfare and set you up in a posh hotel right around the corner from Strategic Profits office so Rich's entire team and Rich himself can focus exclusively on your business. Every resource Rich has will be entirely focused on you and your success.
A complimentary spot in Rich's $25,000 private reserve club– including private masterminds (with other elite online entrepreneurs) at Rich's office, dedicated time with his staff, and exclusive personal access to Rich and his vast resources.

This is what Maria thinks the online World needs right now:

"We need more Female Gurus Rich hint hint. I know the demographics but all it takes is having enough of mediocrity and really for women and men to STEP UP to “Share their Message with the World”

I learned this a while ago “Your Mess is your Message”

So Rich I have posted my constraints allready in my other post and thankyou for all you are doing to empower people in Business and that you help

TRANSFORM Businesses and People not just INSPIRE them ( which is temporary)

I am ready to get into the trenches … Let’s do it."

Rich Schefren on Outsourcing (featuring IM OutSourcerer & Eva Schefren)

Jeff Walker to me
show details 6:03 AM (14 hours ago)

As I type this, Rich Schefren has been on a
live video stream for about 18 straight
hours - and he plans to keep going for another
6 hours... he's trying to make it to the 24
hour mark.

The dude is just plain crazy... he just keeps
answering question after question live on the
video stream - he's totally fueling himself
on Diet Coke, coffee, and cold Chinese

So WHY is he doing it? To celebrate that fact
that he FINALLY finished his latest report on
building your Internet business.

Rich has basically built his entire business
(and it's an EIGHT figure business) based on
his free reports - they are THAT good.

Basically, once or twice a year, he puts out
one of these killer business-building reports
and blows everyone away.

Then the reports get downloaded tens of
thousands of times, and then when he finally
decides to actually sell something, well...
everyone wants to buy it.

It's a pretty effective formula, and it all
starts with Rich's killer report. There's a
ton of great business building strategy in

Bottom line, go get the new report and read
it... you can thank me later. Here's the link:

Find out why

See, Rich Schefren just held the teleseminar to beat all
teleseminars, a star-studded 2-hour phone call that broke
virtually every record in the book.

The reaction was ENORMOUS, with thousands of internet

Well, you'd think a guy would kick back and take a break
after an unprecedented event like that one, right?

But this isn't just any ol' run-of-the-mill marketer we're
talking about here. This is Rich friggin' Schefren.
Guru to the gurus.

this", you're wrong.

DEAD wrong.

And these case studies will prove it.

See you there...

P.S. Let's face it--constraints are something we all experience
in our business.

There's always going to be something blocking the way between

keep moving forward. And with this call and these 3 case studies,
Rich points us in the right direction.
Well worth your time--I guarantee it...

Rich Schefren's office got flooded! LOL

Hi guys,

Just yesterday morning I heard from Frank Kern that Rich Schefren was diagnosed with the "Hughes Syndrome" (as it turned out, Frank was just joking around,

as you can see for yourself here) - and now a new trouble:


Well, at least, that's what I thought when I heard from his office today. I briefly browsed through the message and when I saw the word "TSUNAMI" in it, I was about to start worrying BIG TIME about Rich and all of his employees, especially after what we've heard about those terrible hurricanes lately, and stuff...

I almost reached for the phone and wanted to offer them all to use my own home here in Canada as a shelter... well, at least until the tide subsides, that is!...

Fortunately, after I read the message once again I was relieved to find out that I was wrong. Stupid me! The Tsunami Rich's message was talking about turned out to be no more than just a 'figure of speech'...Wow, he almost got me scared again! And that is twice in the last 24 hours!

But you can imagine how worried it got me for just a second...

Here's what the message really said:

"We had over 7,000 people register just for the FIRST call and than all hell broke loose…   Thousands and thousands registered for the rest of them and replays… and you can see all the activity and what they had to say at the blog.  It was just off the charts.  This call has taken a life of its own and has hit us off guard.  We had to scramble to accommodate everyone.

Rich’s new report has been one of the hottest topics and I can’t wait to share it with you all.  The people involved with making this report and launch happen are the who’s who of business and marketing leaders. They are the people that have been involved in  launches that have gone to stratospheric levels.  Don’t let the opportunity to capitalize on those behemoths pass you by. Get involved today and be part of this undisputed tsunami..."

So, now that I can have a sigh of relief, here's my little gift for you, guys:

Go and grab THE RECORDING of Rich Schefren's call, along with the TRANSCRIPT of the call, before Rich and his Team decide to take their generous offer off the table...


You see, among other things, Rich also told me in confidence that they're only doing this for a short time...

So I wanted to make sure that you saw this ASAP...

Keep smiling!


P.S. One more quick favour before you go...

When you're on the online recording page, tell 4
or 5 of your friends about the call. Rich said they'll have a
special surprise for you when you do.

They don't have to be Internet marketers. They can
come from any business background or any level,
newbie to experienced.

But if they've ever faced constraints in their
business, they'll know EXACTLY what we're talking
about here.

And who knows? Maybe the content inside will help
someone get past a roadblock...which will make you
look like a hero.

Can't hurt, right?



Rich Schefren Diagnosed With 'Hughes Syndrome'

A Special Bulletin by Frank Kern, the Author of 'Mass Control'


Dear Friend,
First of all, Rich Schefren is going to be O.K.
It's not like he's about to die or anything.

But He Is Showing Signs Of A Serious Health Problem

I call it the "Hughes Syndrome".
You remember who Howard hughes was, right? The billionaire business mogul who eventually went kind of nuts.
...OK, he went completely nuts.
They made a movie about him called "The Aviator" a few years ago. (Great movie by the way.)
Anyway - Howard Hughes would become so obsessed with his work that he'd lock himself in a room for weeks and even months ...refusing to see anyone!
He event went so far as to have his meals slid through a special slot in his door ...working around the clock like a man possessed.

Rich Schefren Is Starting To Do The Same Thing And It's Freaking Me Out!

He hasn't gone as far as to have his meals slid under the door ...yet, but he is working like a man possessed (and he's been at it for months!)
See, a few months ago he called me at ZERO O'CLOCK in the morning (secret code for "too damn early to be calling") about a new breakthrough he'd discovered.
Rich figured out that most people like us pretty much know everything we need to know when it comes to running a business.
At least we know enough to get up and running.
For example, everyone knows you gotta have a "hungry" market.
And everybody knows you gotta sell something people already want.
And everybody knows you gotta use good compelling sales copy.
And if you just do those three things, you can pretty much get up and running and make a living.
No big deal, right? Easy.

But Hardly Anyone Actually Does It. Why?

What Rich discovered is that almost everyone has one hidden roadblock that's keeping them from moving forward.
He calls it a "constraint" ...and it could be a different constraint for different people.
For some, it might be a limiting belief. For others, a time management problem.
The point is, we all got 'em ...but very few people are able to identify these hidden constraints that hold you back.

Does This Sound Like You?

Have you ever bought a marketing course or been to a seminar and been like, "Yeah, that was pretty good but I knew that already."
Or have you ever felt like you already "know" marketing ...but you're just a little stuck when it comes to doing it?

It's Because Of Those Damned Contraints Rich Is Talking About

See're not alone. Almost EVERYONE goes through this. And the reason why is there's one little hidden constraint somewhere that's standing in your way.
And once you identify it, it's pretty easy to overcome.
And once you overcome it,

It's Like Pouring Rocket Fuel Onto A Fire!

Your business takes off like crazy. And what's cool is it actually gets easier!
You'll find yourself making more progress in a month than you did in the previous year. I'm talking about exponential growth here.

I Know Because It Happened To Me

You know that Mass Control Giveaway promotion I just did? The one where I got 2,000 customers in less than 8 minutes after the official launch time?
Almost never happened because of a hidden constraint.
But once I identified the constraint, I was off to the races.
And I had 2,000 new customers only two weeks later.
Talk about a breakthrough!
And I owe it all to this discovery of Rich's.

Rich Is Going To Show You How You Can Harness This Breakthrough ...FREE!

Like I said at the beginning of this letter, Rich has been working like a mad scientist on a method to identify and overcome hidden constraints that are keeping you from making the money you want.
And he's teaching these new breakthrough concepts FREE.
You can get them here.


Listen, remember in the headline where I said "this can happen to you"?
What I meant was that you can end up overworked and all freaked out a hurry.
Sometimes it's a "good" thing. like in Rich's case. He's made some amazing discoveries in the past few months and he's been burning the midnight oil in order to share them with the world.
But the "flip side" is the more common scenario.
Where you end up under pressure ...banging your head against the wall trying to move forward in your business ...and hitting a different roadblock every day.
I'm telling you, that's because of this hidden constraint thing. It happens to everybody and once you know about it, your life becomes 1,000 times easier.
Trust me on this.

Click here and learn what Rich has to share with you.

It's free and it's incredibly valuable.

This WILL help you. I can vouch for it from personal experience.

Talk soon,
P.S. I recorded a 6-minute interview with Rich talking about what my personal hidden constraint was and how I overcame it.
Rich will also share that with you. Free. Go here.

Dr. Cialdini and I spoke for over and hour on a wide

dog-eared and marked up, it's barely decipherable.

Tips from Brad Fallon, StomperNet Co-Owner

You've probably heard that Strategic Profits and StomperNet have just signed a Strategic Alliance giving a great opportunity for all Internet Marketers out there to benefit from both the Strategies of Rich Schefren's Business Coaching program, as well as from the Tactics of StomperNet's Online Marketing Program.

Here's what Rich said about the power of that Alliance:

"This pairing of StomperNet and Strategic Profits gives

solid, proven-to-work road map to success by marrying

two of the cornerstones of business--Strategies and

Tactics--into one monumental training package.

Comm, Willie Crawford, Ryan Deiss, Sterling Valentine,
Tellman Knudson, and oh yes, Brad Fallon, became
internet marketing house hold names after going through
this same program.

This is the one that put me on the map...the one that
sparked the wildly successful Internet Business
Manifesto...the one that has transformed literally
hundreds of businesses into multi-million dollar

And it fits so naturally with the tactical brilliance
of StomperNet, allowing you to move seamlessly from my
strategy training into Brad and Andy's breakthrough
program, as they hand you the tools and resources to
turn that strategy into seven figures--FAST."

I'm ticking off some copywriters today...

Just received from Rich Schefren this morning:

"Rich here, and I'm probably going to get a lot of
people hot under the collar about this (especially all
my copywriters pals)...

Because at my blog, I'm scrutinizing one of the most
hard and fast rules in this business: Copy is King.

Go here to see if I agree or not.

And make sure you read the entire post, because my pal
John Carlton is doing something that's never been
attempted in our industry before...

Can't go into the details, but I'll give you a hint:

Dutch Auction.

Get the full story here.

To Higher Profits,


P.S. You know how fanatical I am about systemizing your
business, right?

Well, that goes for copy too. Great copy doesn't just
come from talent. It comes from having an established
process that you can tap into whenever you want to
create glued-to-your-seat copy from either the stage or
the keyboard.

And this guy is the master at it. "

Product Launch Formula 2.0

Rich and Jeff are talking about Jeff's Product Launch Formula v. 2.0...

and here's Product Launch Formula 2.0 Bonus Video:

A Case Study by Jeff Walker of

Daddy, Why Won't They Let Me On The Plane?

Hey Val,

Rich here, and my daughter's tear-choked words are
still ringing in my ears as we speak...

See, last Monday was one of the most frustrating days
in recent memory. Just when I thought it couldn't get
it any worse, it did.

And it kept going from there.

Here's what happened in a nutshell...

I took Deb and the girls to the airport to catch an
early flight. They were heading for Barbados for a few
days of sun, sand, and quality Mommy-Daughter time.

I dropped them off, kissed everyone goodbye, and was
headed back to the office when...

BOOM! The Porsche blows a tire.


So I'm on the shoulder of I-95, jacking up my vehicle
and swearing under my breath while cars zoom within
inches at 90-plus MPH...and my cell rings.

It's Deb--with more bad news. Ava's passport expired
last week, and they won't let her through security.


Now, if you've traveled out of the country recently,
you know how much of a pain that passports can be.

You might as well get in a boat and start rowing--
chances are you'll get there faster.

So I finish changing the tire and double-time it back
to the airport (looking oh-so-presentable with my
sweat-soaked shirt and black-smeared hands) to help
straighten this out.

Long story short, we spent the next 8 hours or so
jumping through hoops, filling out forms, and arguing
heatedly with State Department reps...

...until finally, around 6 pm, my family lifted off the
runway towards Barbados.

As I was driving back home, lamenting the fact
that I had lost an entire day of productivity, two
thoughts struck me that immediately began to ease my

The first was this: How cool is it that I was able to
just blow off a day of work and help my wife with this

Many people can't do that. There's no way they could
just leave their cubicle and take care of an emergency
without getting permission from this supervisor and
that manager...

But because I run my own successful business, I was
able to call the shots--not someone else. And that's a
gratifying feeling if there ever was one.

Secondly, I thought, "How many other people have the
freedom to just zip off to a beautiful first class
resort on a Caribbean island at a moment's notice?"

That's how the Schefrens work. When we need a break, we
don't plan months in advance and shop for the best

We just pick up the phone, call our travel agent, and
book an island getaway...a cruise...a week at
Disney...a ski trip, whatever strikes our fancy.

And we don't worry about budgets or securing vacation
time or any of that stuff--we just go.

(In fact, I did some quick math, and while I was
speaking at a recent event to an audience that included
high-ranking reps from Google and Microsoft, Deb's trip
was paid for in my first 10 minutes on stage.)

So how did we get to this point in life, where we
literally have the freedom to do anything we want--
whenever we want--without a care in the world?


I can trace it back to one single strategy
that changed everything in my business virtually
overnight and gave me the lifestyle I've always dreamed

This is, by far, the single most influential strategy
anyone ever taught me...and the most important
element of your business growth.

It virtually guarantees your success if you follow the
process, delivering the wealth, freedom, and
opportunity you've always desired in the fastest
possible time.

So what is it?  

Go to the blog right now to find out.

To Higher Profits,


P.S. Sorry this was a little longer than most of my
emails, but it's one of the most important that I've
ever written...

Because if I didn't have the freedom to help my family
in their time of need, last Monday's frustrations would
have been multiplied a hundredfold.

And just the fact that we're able to do these types of
things--travel, see the world, give our kids
unforgettable's just remarkable.

But I can trace all the success, all the wealth, and
all the incredible business growth of Strategic Profits
to this one thing...

..and you can have it too--right now--and begin your
own journey to unparalleled freedom in the next few

Sorry–had to get my Red Hot Chili Peppers on for a second. ;)

But if you’ve been with me for while, you know that I’m all about giving stuff away for free…

I believe that’s the key to real success. When you give something away, you’ll eventually reap the rewards tenfold–or more–while creating a loyal audience of followers who hang on your every word.

And I’m not talking about just “any” stuff. I’m talking about your BEST OF THE BEST.

(Basically, if you’re clinging to it with both hands, trying to figure out how much to charge, you should really be handing it out for nothing.)

Because this resonates big-time with your audience. Those who were unsure about you will become fans. Those who were wishy washy followers will now become loyal beyond words. And those who have already bought from you will become your biggest cheerleaders (as well as AWESOME JV Partners).

But I know what you’re thinking:

“Rich, if I give everything away, what am I going to sell”?

Patience, young grasshopper. ;) That will come in time, when you know more about your audience and what they REALLY want…as opposed to what you THINK they want.

And when you do strike that hidden vein of gold, you’ll be in a much better position to sell more products, gain an even bigger following, and become the maven in your marketplace that I know you can be.

So with that in mind, I want to give you a little freebie of my own today…

A couple of weeks ago I posted a bunch of video clips from the New Beginnings event in Orlando.

One of the most popular clips was from Product Launch Master Jeff Walker. Jeff offered some killer strategies for crafting a product launch that generates a massive tidal wave of clicks to your Buy Button.

In fact, it was so popular, we decided to give you even MORE of Jeff’s jaw-dropping presentation.

So without further adieu, here’s a 9 minute chunk of Jeff explaining some of the hidden nuances of a successful product launch.

Just another way of saying “thanks” for your continued support of Strategic Profits.

Kathy Sierra, Gary Vaynerchuk, + Rich Schefren

Have you ever noticed that when you’re following the path you were meant to travel down… the universe has a weird way of helping you along the way?

Here’s an amazing but true story about what happens when you find your life’s work and the synchronicity, good fortune, and weird circumstances that seem to come out of nowhere.

It all started nine months ago while conducting research for The Attention Age Doctrine 1. I was at a sticking point, struggling with too many competing concepts, and no clear way to distill them down. I had been fraught for days trying to “crack the code” that would crystallize everything swimming inside my mind.

I couldn’t sleep, couldn’t write, and didn’t know what to do with myself. Finally, I sat down checked some emails, and then surfed the web looking for inspiration and clarity.

Then WHAMO! I stumbled onto a blog that changed everything. In fact, reading this blog shifted the direction of my professional life. ..

Gotta make this quick, because Strategic Profits Live! is getting set to kick off. But I wanted to let you in on a special surprise I’ve been keeping under my hat for a while…

We’ve decided that, if you couldn’t make it to Strategic Profits Live!, you’ll have a daily ringside seat.

You read that right–for the next several days, the Strategic Profits Blog will be transformed into Conference Central, complete with daily updates on the latest happenings, smokin’ hot video clips from the speakers and behind-the-scenes interviews you won’t want to miss.

We’re talkin’ no-holds barred (and completely pitch free) nuggets of wisdom from the world’s greatest marketing and business building minds, including Frank Kern, Jeff Walker, Mike Filsaime, John Carlton, Jay Abraham, Janet Switzer and many more.

There’s never been anything of this magnitude ever attempted in the internet marketing world, and I’m giving the cameras an All-Access pass into every nook and cranny.

Here’s a few clips from today’s opening day activities - some workshop attendees and the crew getting up for the main event that I kick off tomorrow … looking good …

Jay Abraham Videos

"Inside is 5 videos, approximately 1 hour worth of Jay taking one complex business scenario after another and giving them (in as little as a few minute's time) solid, actionable strategies that will transform their profit margins from blah to BOOYAH--almost immediately.

We're talking an instant business makeover...a "sales transfusion" if you will. It's like being handed the keys to the castle from the master builder himself..."

In network theory and sociology, a maven is someone who
has a disproportionate influence, power and ethical control
over all the other members of the network. 

The role of a maven in propagating true knowledge and
defining market preferences has been well established in a
wide range of fields, from politics to social trends.

In recent years, respected economists have spent a great
deal of time studying the powerful influence that mavens
have over markets and all the people who make them up.

leaders of their field.

    far more people buy.  Their loyalty levels shoot off the
