You don’t need a magic guru. You don’t need bells and whistles. You don’t need the latest, greatest thing.
In fact, all of those things can easily be distracting.
You do need:
A solid idea
that piques your creativity,
an idea that wraps around real monetization.
This isn’t the Georgia O’Keefe type of creativity. No, it is YOUR kind of creativity, a creativity where you can take an idea and find its flavors and nuances, a creativity that can make someone smile while they are learning.
Passion is dandy for a website, whether it is your first online business, or your fiftieth. But if that passion can’t earn money — legitimately — then it is worse than no good. An ill advised website saps your time, your energy, even your reputation, and that is simply lousy.
So how do I know what is, and what is not, a great idea?
Well, we start with topics you already know, topics you enjoy. We look in places no one else even thinks of looking, and we discover possibilities that weren’t even on your radar before. Here’s what one of our members said:
You have a fabulous list of where to look for passions, and I have still not exhausted that list. I have taken another “passions” test several times, and each time the answers have changed because that test does not narrow things down the way your test does.
That initial idea is re-e-e-e-eally important. It forms the basis for all the rest of the research that we do on your topic.
And here’s the real bonus: Should we discover that one passion just doesn’t work out, you now have the tools and expertise to discover lots more ideas. That is no small accomplishment.
What do you mean, “If it doesn’t work out”? That sounds scary.
We don’t just assume that any topic is a good topic. Once we have our first choice, we go and investigate it. Sometimes a topic just doesn’t make the cut.
~ Sometimes there just isn’t a cost effective way of promoting a specific topic.
~ Sometimes we just can’t identify a style of website that works well with the topic AND that you are comfortable with too.
~ Maybe the topic doesn’t have enough interest, i.e., there just aren’t enough people interested in the topic to form a solid pool of potential clients for a business.
Lots of things can derail a topic.
But not to worry. If any glitches pop up, we simply go back and look at another topic, another passion. You have the tools you need to do this … at absolutely NO COST to you. So even if you are just a curious sort of kitty, you can look at as many possibilities as you like.
Whoa, there, what’s this about “clients”? Don’t I need just one Ideal Client?
Well, yes, we do identify your one Ideal Client, with a specificity that is genuinely amazing.
For example, we will know
∗ Her income
∗ Her favorite blogs
∗ If she is married and has children
∗ What style of life she leads
∗ What kind of car she likes
∗ What sort of job she has
∗ Where she lives
… and … are you ready for this?
∗ We will know if she likes to buy things online! ∗
There’s just a whole lot more we will know about her too, but that “buying online” item is a real eye opener. If your Ideal Client doesn’t buy things online, you are barking up the wrong tree by presenting her with things to buy online.
So let’s get that Ideal Client thing-y right, right at the start.
Then, once we’ve got your Ideal Client,
we’ll head on out and find thousands
— THOUSANDS — more just like her.
There has been an awful lot of hype about that “Ideal Client”, so much that we sometimes lose track of the fact that we need a whole more than one client to make a business successful.
So we just go out and find you slews of them.
Isn’t that what fancy (i.e., expensive) marketing companies do?
Yes, it is. And you can do it too. With FREE TOOLS. Honest.
I’ll take you step by step to capture the exact information that you need to make an informed, intelligent choice on your topic.
And that “promotion” thing — Isn’t that for advertising companies to do too?
Indeed, yes, advertising and public relations companies do a whole lot of promotional stuff.
Here’s the scoop: Your big competitors likely have a whole staff to do nothing but promotional stuff. Here’s the marketing/ advertising department of BigCo, one of your big competitors:
And here’s you:
Houston, we’ve got a problem.
The BigCo guys learned all about allocating $10,000 a week in 623 different promotional projects to generate 23,539 new leads each week. These guys know all about paradigms and charting results minute by minute.
That’s not us.
Odds are pretty good that you and I — the solopreneurs — aren’t spending $10,000 a week in promotion, and goodness knows we could never keep track of 623 different promotional projects, no matter how many leads they generated.
We need a whole different approach to marketing and promotion.
The book for us wasn’t written. So I wrote it. It is called TOP MARKETING TACTICS FOR THE TIME CHALLENGED SOLOPRENEUR. (Yep, that’s us.)
Here are the 20+ techniques that solopreneurs can use effectively to promote and grow their business.
They can all be managed by one person.
They are all very effective in promoting your business. Best yet, you won’t often bump into BigCo here — these are tactics just for US!
Also, the marketing tactics that we look at are very flexible. If one doesn’t work, or work as well as we had hoped, we add another or replace it entirely with another option. We can add and delete options to build just the right marketing approach for our business.
These techniques are even flexible enough that you can gro-o-o-ow your business as big as you want. Cool.
OK. But you are talking about a huge course to learn all this stuff, aren’t you?
I guess it depends on what you call “huge”. FROM PASSION TO PROSPERITY actually includes:
- 20+ audio tapes with transcripts
- Resource tools for Marketing and Monetization
- Bonuses on SEO, Finance, and more
How long does it take to get through all this info?
That is up to you. As soon as you join the Master Class, you have access to everything. Nothing is held back. If you want to sit down and go through it all in a day or two, you can. Most people probably take several days, or even a month or so.
Any time you want to go back and review anything, you are welcome to do it. You have FULL ACCESS for ONE FULL YEAR. Learn all you can, and reap the benefits of any new material added during that year.
Isn’t that much information confusing for Newbies?
It can be. Remember, though, that I have taught this course more than once. In fact, over a seven year period I taught these very same techniques to several hundred personal coaching clients in all kinds of fields, from sites on chocolate chip cookies to debt management.
THIS is the stuff you need, without the fluff.
I cannot pull myself away from the course, and it is 2 a.m.! ... Thank you so much for the opportunity to go through this course. There is so much great information and you break it down into sizeable, doable steps.
So what are the “steps” that Ijeoma is talking about?
Basically, we focus on the “Creative Idea” that we talked about up above, and here is what happens.
Step 1: Passion or Profit?
There is indeed a place for both Passion and Profit online. It is up to you to determine how important each goal is to your business.
- Step 1A: Identify YOUR Passions, complete with Worksheets. YOU tell ME where your true interests are. We explore lots of options, so you will have lots of ideas.
The rest of the course identifies those specific interests that can become a real business.
- Step 1B: Identify Profitable Niches with FREE TOOLS, complete with worksheets.
We don’t dally around. Right up front we need to know if the topic you dream about is really profitable, so we target specific niches that we know ARE profitable.
Don’t waste your time or energy working on topics that just aren’t feasible. NOW is the time to gauge just what your future holds on any given topic. We refine the results later, but this is a top notch start.
- Step 1C: Big Niches, Little Niches
How to know when your topic is “just right”, and a look at the question “Aren’t all the good topics already taken?”
Step 2: Products/Services and Monetization
- Step 2A: The Top Monetization Options for Solopreneurs
Here is where we really get serious about making money online. We really take time to review the amazing publication EXPLODE YOUR WEBSITE MONETIZATION: 19 TOP INCOME STREAMS YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW.
There are hundreds and hundreds of ways to make money online. Here again, we identify those income streams that are most effective for solopreneurs, ways that you can manage on your own without sophisticated coding or sublime artwork.
Years ago a forum moderator tagged me as the “niche” and “monetization” expert, and so began my journey of helping literally thousands of entrepreneurs find their profitable niches.
This is another book that had never been written, but needed to be, and so I put together the absolute TOP ways to explode your monetization. Even with these amazing 19 ways to earn money online, I haven’t exhausted the topic. There are more! But these are a great selection that will get you started in good form.
Add some new income streams any time you like. The world is your oyster now.
There is one thing I am especially pleased to share with you:
THE FASTEST WAY TO EARN MONEY ONLINE.
Here is the legitimate insider’s scoop
on how I earned a five-figure income
my first month in business.
I know that not everyone will hit that five-figure mark so quickly, but I do know that it can be done. This is no fly by night scheme. It is truly THE fastest way to earn money online, working as a solo professional, not as a scammer.
Incidentally, I really HATE scammers. I see so much cruddy stuff on the web, so many empty promises. And, yes, I’ve been caught in the web of some of these fast talkers myself. I think it is a learning curve that we all just need to go through.
If you goal is to set a scam of sort, read no further. I can’t — and won’t — help you. But I will knock myself out to help legitimate business people.
EXPLODE YOUR MONETIZATION is a real game changer on the scene:
EXPLODE YOUR MONETIZATION is so good you shouldn't give it away. You should sell it separately!
But we aren’t finished!
- Step 2B: All About Affiliates and Joint Ventures
Both affiliates and joint ventures hold massive opportunity for the solopreneur.
Most gurus tell you that you have to have thousands of people on your email list before ever thinking about joint ventures. Well, it just isn’t so. Here we explore how to go about it, even if you are a Newbie.
- Step 2C: Mix and Match
You would be amazed at how many ways there are to monetize any single website, even one as simple as a children’s bookstore. The more ideas you have in your pocket, the stronger your potential for success, so let’s stuff those pockets with lots of ideas!
Step 3: Your Community, Your Peeps
Every online business is built around the concept of a community. Your community is your client base. No community/ no client base. It is that simple. So we ensure that you really do have a client base before going further.
- Step 3A: Four Fabulous Ways to Quantify Your Community
I was slow to learn this lesson, but the internet world is now centered on social media. If your peeps are not on social media somewhere, it may still be possible to market to them, but it will be a lot more expensive, and a lot harder.
So we take the time here to find out how many people there are who are truly interested in your topic, and how many you may need to create a successful business. Are there 500,000 in social media now? Are there 100? It would likely be tough to build a business with a potential client base of only 100, and if that is your situation it is much better to find out now, before you build your site and spend gazillions promoting it.
- Step 3B: Finding Your Community On Social Media
What you can do with free tools will amaze and delight you. It certainly amazed me when I discovered these tactics. Do yourself a favor and begin early to find and court your community.
- Step 3C: A Word With Your Competitors
Most entrepreneurs fight against their competitors, as if the competitor were taking business away from them. Well, they aren’t. Odds are really that you and your competitors have very complimentary businesses.
Wouldn’t it be a whole lot easier if your competitors considered you an ally, not a threat? and you considered them the same? Well that is what we do here. You can access their knowledge (and their client base) and still help them too — a real win-win scenario.
Step 4: Stepping Out In Style
This sounds fluffy, but trust me, it can be a real deal breaker.
There are 7 major styles of website. Finding the style of website that matches your particular skill set is absolutely critical to your success.
For example, suppose you want to set up a storefront with hundreds of hummingbird products. It would be a gorgeous site. But if you don’t know HTML and CSS coding, don’t go near it. You will end up paying a programmer every dime that you earn, and more.
Most topics fit comfortably into several different styles of website. That hummingbird site could be an informational site as well as a storefront, depending on your skill set.
Your website style is important. Very important. Don’t skip this step, even if you think you have found the most perfect topic in the world.

Now I am Really Scared. What does all of this Cost?
Now is when most web pros bring out fancy charts and show you how their goods are worth multi-thousands of dollars.
And, in truth, this Master Class is worth a lot. Yes, it is worth a whole lot more. And, yes, I have charged thousands of dollars for the same information.
But one of the major reasons I built this Master Class was to make it accessible to as many people as possible, and charging multi-thousands of dollars just doesn’t make it accessible.
So for a limited time — just for my CHARTER MEMBERS (that’s YOU!) — I am offering this at the low, low price of …
OK. That’s a very reasonable cost, but I can’t pay it all right now. Do you have a payment plan?
Yes! we do.
How about just US$ 65 now,
and US$ 65 each month for the next six months ?
Just click below:
Yes, it is worth a whole lot more.
And, yes, I have charged thousands of dollars for the same information.
So what’s the deal?
YOU are my Charter Members for this course. I really want to make this as accessible as possible to you.
A Few FAQs
How long do I have to complete the Master Class?
You have full access to everything from Day 1, as soon as you sign up, and remain a member FOR ONE FULL YEAR. Go back as many times as you like, repeat lessons, review transcripts, start over, or jump around, and always keep abreast of updates and new material.
While I recommend that you work through the steps from the beginning, I know people have different ways of learning, so you choose how to approach the information.
Is there a guarantee?
Absolutely! I am very confident that you will tie down a topic that is really great just for you. I am so confident that, should you not be able to tie down a topic, I will refund all money paid — 100%. This is a 30 day guarantee. AND NOTE: You must send me the worksheets you have done to prove to me that the system does not work. I have put my heart and soul into this course, and it is not for Lookie Lous. If you are serious, I am serious, and we WILL find that business for you.
Will it work for anyone?
Almost. You do need (a) a basic knowledge of the internet and how to search; (b) the ability to build a basic website; (c) a FaceBook presence; and (d) fire in your gut. If you’ve got those things, it WILL work for you.
I don’t even try to teach you about the internet, or how to build a website. That is something you need to learn before taking this Master Class.
Here is what one of our members said: “Thank you so much for this great opportunity on the “From Passion to Prosperity” project. I recognize I was a little bit skeptical at first. But, after I started reading the transcripts of the Step 1 tutorials, I felt truly amazed by what these tutorials made me think/feel about my passions. Practically, I’ve learned so far how to “translate” my passions into the numbers that can objectively reveal my type of niches. I have to confess that the term or idea of a “niche” was somehow confusing to me and the content of your transcripts placed this notion into the correct light for me. I am not afraid of this term anymore and, as a consequence, I am not also afraid of bringing my own unique presence into the market. Your approach from Step 1 of “From Passion to Prosperity” felt great! I am still working at Step 1 A Worksheets and I adore nich-ing around my “pie”! I am really impressed!”
Are other things included?
I do expect to have some special FREE webinars just for the members of the Master Class, so keep tuned for that.
Will you help me personally if I get stuck?
Yes! I encourage you to post in the FaceBook group. I will be going into that Group and checking to see what is going on. Between my help and the help you give to and receive from each other, you will never feel abandoned. Also see the note about the webinars, above, where you will be able to ask personal questions.
I also have a incredible Quick Start option for those who would rather have me do the work for them. It is quick and easy. No fuss, just results.
Are you really The Pro?
You bet. I wouldn’t kid you about that.
I’ve been helping solopreneurs online for over 15 years. Over a decade ago I became the “niche specialist” and “monetization specialist” for a web host, and I individually coached hundreds of new online entreprenuers in identifying niches and making them profitable. We worked on travel sites, bad breath, life coaching, diamonds, dogs, and oh so much more. I just loved it. (Note: I am not the coach to add bells and whistles to your site — that is someone else. I AM THE COACH FOR NICHES AND MONETIZATION.)
FROM PASSION TO PROSPERITY is different because I am focusing on recorded lessons, transcripts, workbooks and lessons, not so much personal attention. The personal attention is nice, but it gets very expensive very quickly. At this point in my career I want to reach as many creative entrepreneurs as I can, so I have opted for the master class approach.
So just how many books have you written?
How do I contact you if I have more questions
