How I got hired by Lewis Howes, Inc. Magazine and Michael Hyatt

I was talking with my little brother about it the other day.

His client list is even more impressive: Google, Amazon, Nike, Office Depot, Circle K and a few dozen other Fortune 500 companies. Two “poor white trash” kids, who grew up in a rat-infested trailer home…

Landing these kind of “swanky” clients.

Especially when you consider we’re both hermits.

He’s a hippy who likes working in his garden and woodworking. I’m a nerd who spends most of my time scouring the interwebs for any half-decent sci-fi flick I haven’t seen, yet (seriously, if you know of any, help a brotha out).

So, how the h-e- double hockey sticks did we land these clients?

And, this is where I get to do my favorite thing…

Brag about myself. 😀 But seriously, I stumbled on (and I really mean stumbled on… I had no idea this would happen when I started) a slick little way to get clients that I’m confident almost nobody else on the planet knows.

Let alone teaches.

Yet, it’s responsible for the majority of the celebrity clients I’ve worked with.

When you do it… there’s zero competition. And I mean zero. Nobody else will be competing with for these clients. You also get the highest recommendation you possibly could from THE authority that matters most to these clients…

And they often hire you without asking for any credentials…

Or vetting you at all.

And it’s not something stupid like “referrals”. I wouldn’t do that to you (hype you up for something dumb and obvious). No, this is legit something I’m 99.9% sure you’ve never thought of — and it’s so freakin’ easy.

In fact, you can start working this strategy right after you learn it.


Now, of course, there’s caveats.

It takes some patience and some long-term planning. You have to be able to see beyond the 2 inches in front of your face. But, once this is established and in place. You can quite literally have clients already pre-sold on hiring YOU and *only* you…

Just show up in your inbox day in and day out.

Regular folks.

“Celebrity” clients.

Anybody and everybody.

Anyway, if you want to learn it… you won’t have much luck on the bewb-tube or the blogs. You’re gonna have to deal my braggadocious self. But, if you can get that past, I will help you learn and implement this.

Anyway, up to you.

As you nerp… the “yuuuuge” $134 discount on my Freelance Feast course ends tonight, June 4th, at midnight CST. So, if you want in… ze clock’s a tickin’, homey. Link to get it before it vanishes like… a thing that vanishes real fast… is here:

Very professional worker who is extremely knowledgable in WordPress and Wishlist Member. I would definitely hire again.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

John has a habit of over-delivering on the expectations he sets up. That’s why he’s the best.

John has provided expert knowledge and advice on multiple occasions that have helped me better serve my clients. John is a Rockstar!

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Jim DeJonge

John has a relaxed and engaging manner. His advice is solid and the explanations are well thought out.
