First, I want to say Happy Lunar New Year. Lunar New Year began on January 31, and it is the Year of the Horse.
I am Chinese, and in my culture, Chinese New Year is a very important time of year. Families get together and share time together, much like Christmas in Western culture. It is a time for new beginnings, blessings for the new year and hopes for plenty of good luck, fortune, and a long life. People born in the Year of the Horse are considered very energetic. This year will certainly be full of energy for me, as I was also born in the Year of the Horse.
Empower Network Event in Miami
I rounded off the last part of January with the Empower Network Freedom event in Miami, Florida. This event is for Empower Network affiliates and members to gather, celebrate, learn, collaborate and draw inspiration. Many leave these events with a lot of new friends and a renewed energy for their own businesses. This event was no different. I saw a lot of breakthroughs.
The event was from Friday, January 24 through Sunday, January 26. I arrived on Thursday to get ready, get settled, and meet with other leadership members.
I had a Miami Luncheon Workshop with current team members. We ate ceviche, veggies, salads and seared meats. We talked, masterminded and took a lot of notes. I really enjoy these meetings because they are smaller than the events; it gives us time to really get to know each other.
Over the next couple of days, we had some really exciting moments. There are a few of us who are a part of the Millionaire's Club. As a gift for achieving a million dollars in commissions, we received diamond rings. This time, our spouses were gifted with rings from the Millionaire's Club. My wife, Jessica, loves her new ring.
Saturday night we enjoyed our team party. We all went to Marlin stadium and had a blast, dancing the night away to sizzling salsa, tropical drinks and Caribbean food.
Saturday was the busiest day of the event. After the main event concluded for the day, we held a workshop about avatars and marketing. Avatars are a profile of a certain demographic that you want to target in your marketing. You would create an avatar, for example, a 35-year old married woman with kids, who lives in the SE U.S. and has a part-time business, and speak to that avatar in your marketing.
The High Ticket Academy was launched. This product teaches marketers how to sell high-end, high-ticket and high-commission products, whether digital or physical. It is based on experience of selling 5 different workshops that cost from $3,500 to $25,000. The benefit of selling high-end items is higher commissions, higher profits, and more serious customers.
When I first started selling anything online, I was an engineer began by selling cheaper products on eBay. I never thought that I could sell high-end products. Never. Anyone can do it, and the training shows you how.
Empower Network held a leadership panel, where we answered questions and trained the audience. It was designed to help the audience direct their business activities for more productivity, greater effectiveness and more sales.
I wanted to take a minute and congratulate Monica, Sylvester, Lance, Kimberly, Joe, Phillip and James. You know who you are. 😉 Your commitment and hard work have paid off and are an example for many to follow. Thank you.
Empower Hour Call and The Inner Circle
The Monday before the Miami event, I led the Empower Hour Call. It is a nightly call on a variety of topics – anything from overcoming adversity to marketing 101. I talked about the things that made me successful, tips on how to increase productivity and how to get motivated. These weren't tips regurgitated out of a book; they were real, heart-felt tips put in a context that not only speaks to your head, but your heart as well. I love getting feedback from people who feel the advice I give really helps them.
These calls are archived as part of the Empower Network Inner Circle. The Inner Circle product is updated weekly, and is important, because:
It is business education.
It is personal development.
Listening to it places all of this information into your subconscious, which helps change your core beliefs and realigns them for success. Listening to these types of audio is what the top businesspeople in the world do. Daily.

At the beginning of January, I asked if people wanted to read a book with me. After a lot of positive feedback, I shared the book, Way of The Superior Man.
It is a spiritual book for men to connect to their deepest and truest masculinity. I recommend it. Check it out HERE
I will be starting a book club soon, so we can make this a regular part of our learning process. Stay tuned!
Even though this was a very busy month for me, I still planned to attend a Rich Dad, Poor Dad event. Rich Dad, Poor Dad is a book written by Robert Kiyosaki, a financial educator and real estate guru. It is one of the most easy-to-understand books written about personal finance and investing ever written, in my opinion.
Here is another book I recommend:
They have events to help people learn the importance of managing money, help to shift thinking about money, and gain financial independence. It was cancelled due to bad weather, but the point of attending these events is to constantly keep growing. It helps me network with other business people. These seminars continue to help me build myself and my business.
Not So Good Happenings
My daughter Ally broke her arm while was playing with the dog on her scooter. Anyone who has broken a bone knows how painful it is. My tough little girl didn't cry at all. I am lucky to have such a tough and healthy young lady for a daughter. 🙂
What mattered most is that I was able to be home when it happened plus take her to the doctors.
That's a wrap for January. Keep in touch with me on Facebook and come back next month to see all the highlights for February.
I am taking on 2-3 New Students this month to put through my training and have them come out for some personal training with myself and my teams. To apply for consideration for our team and be ready to start achieving massive success click the button Below:
